Not only are they blessed with a plethora of stars from front to back, the Parisians also have a healthy transfer budget to their name, ranking in the FIFA rich list for yet another year.

It won't be the most challenging Career Mode that you will undertake, but it's one that will be a hell of a lot of fun to do.

Dortmund have a host of Europe's hottest youngsters at the club, including Mr Erling Haaland. They may have lost Jadon Sancho but with the likes of Donyell Malen joining their ranks, they are no mugs.

The challenge of overcoming Bayern is something in itself, but could you take them all the way to European glory?

The Welsh side have entered the game via the ROW category, so you will have to drop them into a league of your choice before you can get started, but a spot in League 2 shouldn't be an issue.

There is a big sense of anticipation surrounding the Welsh 'Hollywood' outfit. Can you get them to the top before anyone else?

The Dutch giants have again put emphasis on success via the youth development route, though you will have a modest £30,000,000 budget to get you started.

It's an iconic club looking to return to the top of Europe's elite, but will you be the manager to take them there?

Schalke are one of Germany's most iconic clubs, yet somehow they find themselves in the Bundesliga 2.

Domestic success is listed as crucial for the former Europa League champions, so you will have to perform on the pitch if you are to keep your job with the club long term.

The challenge to bring them back to the top of German football is a daunting one, but one that we will be attempting.
