FIFA 22 has landed, so it's time to start planning your route of attack on Career Mode.
For some, that will mean working their way up from the bottom with a lower league club, whilst others will prefer to take the easier route of choosing those with the biggest budget.
If you're the latter then you're in luck, as we have scoured the leagues to find out where the biggest budgets are coming from.
Which Teams Have The Biggest Transfer Budgets In FIFA 22 Career Mode?
Only a select group of Europe's elite have been handed a transfer budget in excess of £100,000,000.
Teams from the Premier League, Bundesliga, LaLiga and Ligue 1 feature, although you'll have to turn that cash into success if you are to remain in the hotseat.
The full FIFA 22 Career Mode rich list can be found below.
|Manchester City||Premier League||£184,000,000|
|Manchester United||Premier League||£163,000,000|
|Paris Saint Germain||Ligue 1||£137,000,000|
|Real Madrid||La Liga||£130,000,000|
|FC Barcelona||La Liga||£110,000,000|
It won't come as much of a surprise to see Manchester City sitting pretty at the top of the rich list in FIFA 22.
If you opt to succeed Pep Guardiola and take control of the reigning Premier League champions then you will be handed a kitty of over £184,000,000.
The board have hefty expectations - with domestic and continental success both listed as critical - but with a star studded squad at your disposal, you should be alright!
If you'd prefer to hop over to the red side of Manchester and try to recreate some of those Sir Alex glory days then you needn't worry about a lack of money.
Not only will you have Cristiano Ronaldo at your disposal, but you'll also be met with a £163,000,000 transfer budget.
Youth development is a critical element to the clubs success though, so you'll have to find a balance between buying stars and creating them.
Paris Saint Germain
Now this wouldn't be the most exciting Career Mode choice for obvious reasons, but it's one that will be popular without a doubt.
If Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe & Neymar Jr aren't enough to appease your appetitie, PSG's £137,000,000 budget will allow you to go out and sign a couple more superstars.
You'll have to dominate both domestically and continentally in order to keep your job, but that won't be difficult with the squad you have at your disposal.
The financial difficulties surrounding Real Madrid have been highly publicised in recent weeks, clearly EA didn't get the memo!
Los Blancos have been handed a transfer budget of almost £130,000,000 as they aim to work their way back to the top of European football.
Success is expected in return for your cash, but are you up to the challenge?
The Premier League is likely to be the most popular choice for Career Mode this year, and there are plenty of rich clubs at your disposal.
Liverpool have a range of stars split betweeen their defence and attack and you can plug the gaps as you see fit with a budget of £115,000,000.
You won't have an expectation to develop youth, but you will be expected to win silverware during your stint with the club.
Barcelona had to let go of Lionel Messi due to financial difficulties, but in FIFA 22 you may just be able to sign him back.
In a peculiar turn of events, EA have handed the Catalonian club a budget of over £110,000,000. We're not sure why, but we won't complain about it.
Their squad has been hit heavily by their financial troubles, so it may take some time to get them back to where they belong.
Completing the list of Premier League clubs with a budget of £100M or more is European champions, Chelsea.
The Royal Blues have added Romelu Lukaku to their ranks in the off season, and with a budget of £100,000,000, you will be able to extend their star studded squad.
The level of expectation is lower than at the other Premier League clubs in this list, so if you're in it for the long run, then Chelsea may be the club for you.
Completing the FIFA 22 rich list are Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich.
The Baverian side fall just short of the £100M mark, although I don't think many will complain about their £99,000,000 transfer budget.
The league is almost a formality at this point, but do you have what it takes to take them to the top of the European rankings?
