Who is the best U-21 centre-back?

To nobody’s surprise, Matthijs de Ligt is the best young centre-back in FIFA 20. The Juventus man is only 20, yet he’s already on par with best defenders in the world. While a potential rating of 92 suggests you will definitely get your money’s worth.

* Stats from 2019/20 Champions League below.

De Ligt’s strongest stats in FIFA 20 are in strength (88), marking (86), heading (85), jumping (84) and reactions (83).

If you’re on a small budget, then Tanguy Kouassi could be an ideal option for you. The 17-year-old is a pretty decent defender already and costs just €4.4m. Add his strong potential to the mix, you may have found yourself a bargain.
