One of the most exciting aspects of playing Career Mode in FIFA 14 is the ability to use the Global Transfer Network to scout, pursue, and ultimately sign the high potential players you need to make the best squad possible as you move forward each year. 

The new Global Transfer Network give FIFA 14 players that added bit of realism into Career Mode, which makes signing players a bit more interesting than in years past. Over the course of a player's career, they can become better or worse depending on age and use. Bring in a young player and give him the opportunity to play week in and week out with your team, and you'll likely see him improve with each passing year. 

Using your scouts effectively to find good cheap talent can do wonders for your squad both on the pitch and in the boardroom. 

We've put together several guides to bring you the best FIFA 14 high potential players in one convenient source. From high potential youth players to high potential strikers

1) FIFA 14 High Potential Centre Backs

An integral part of every formation as you will start at least two, the centre-back position is one of the most important in FIFA 14. If goalscoring isn't your forte or you don't have a world-class striker, preventing the opposition from scoring is the best way to get results.
