FM20 Central Defenders

Recommended Posts

Playing my second save and having the same problem again now, cant find many really good CB`s that are attainable.

So who are they? how much can you get them for? Where do they play? (Ruben Dias doesnt Count , but on his level)

Ajer from Celtic becomes quite good and can be gotten for £20m if you work at it.

Playing as whom? Depending on the money, in the second year, plenty are attainable. Skiniar, Umtiti, Varane = all three can be obtained for around 80 Mn in the second year (depending on interest and performances). 

Along the cheaper scale, Ajer and Upamecano are also attainable, and become rather good. Same with Tuanzebe and Stefan Savic. And Jose Gimenez or Jonathan Tah.

I've only found a few CBs to be completely unattainable, Marquinhos among them. A beast, and probably the best attribute distribution, but PSG keep awarding him new contracts and refusing to sell.

two French central defenders of Leipzig, Konate & Upamecano are amazing.

if you are obsessed like me with playing a left footed central defender at DLC (central defender left) then Bastoni from Inter or Uduokhai from Wolfsburg are all good choices. 

other than those, even Tarkowski from Burnley would contribute you a lot, central defenders are in abundance, unlike good left and right backs. 

some of the other notable options are Godfrey from Norwich, Milenkovic from Fiorentina or Ferro from Benfica. (but there are so many good DC's out there)

Thanks for the suggestions. Isnt Ajer more of a Dm than a CB or will he hold against the best as a CB also? Does Upamecano gets good in this iteration of FM? I dont think his attributes look that impressing. I play as Wolves but in My second save im in My second year. I will have a look at Savic and Tah and see if they might want to join. Gimenez is probably too exoensive

Upamecano is really good- especially due to his pace he is really effective when the opposition tries a long ball through your defensive line. 

Ajer is effective in both positions, i now use him as a CB but other times i used him as a DM (deep lying playmaker defend) and he always contributes well. 

Btw I play as Wolves too, this is my team as i am about to start the second season.

That is an Amazing Wolves team btw, there was no way i could get Dias and Luis interested to come to Wolves.

I will try with Ajer and see how it goes.

Van Drongelen maybe worth a look, currently at Hamburg in German 2nd Div. He is still only 21 so his stats may not be top quality, however, I've found him to be very consistent added bonus is he can also play LB/LWB. He may not be the finished article just yet but for under 5m you can't complain.

Gonzalo Montiel

Chris Mepham ( my favourite.. for obvious reasons)

Lyanco from Torino

Stats look pretty solid. Just bought him for 12 mill pounds at the start of the second season

I got Tobido unsettled at Barca and got him for about 30M, he's quite good so far.

 

I'll also mention Javier Montero from Atleti. Atleti have Nehuen Perez who looks good but I've not used him.

Merih Demiral is available for about 20M after the first season in my game too.

As DC I recommend Nicolo Armini from Lazio. You can sign him as 17 years old for 1-2 mio. euros in the start of the game.

Give 2-3 years to develop and he will become an excellent DC (left footed Ball Playing Defender). He can also play DL.

For my Inter save he is now 21 years old and already an established player in my defence and also now in the preferred start 11 of the Italy national team. He has many great years in front of him. See screenshot below.

I actually load up my FM19 (been on a break) since I did a double-take on this. So, Armini is left footed on FM20?

We like Ajer from Celtic too. He's under 20m at the start which aint bad... NO SPOILER* but our nuber 1 pick this year you can get for for around 14m at the start of the game... Honerable mention for Perez at Athletico - Release Clause of 13.25m

Off topic, but how much did you pay for Hakimi?

I loaned him right after his loan with Dortmund ended- he was listed automatically for loan again- then after the second season i used my optional buy fee which was around 75m

Anyone had the double Nathan's together yet?

 

I.e Nathan Wood of Middlesbrough and Nathan Ferguson of WBA?  they look to compliment each other well..
