Believe the HYPE.
FUT Future Stars is our definitive list of breakout stars for 2019. This squad of wonderkids are on the cusp of breaking through into the football mainstream this season. In Future Stars we flash forward to what these youngsters could become if they fulfill their potential. A squad of 21 Future Stars will be released in packs, for a limited time, with supercharged stats to help them compete with today's FUT elite.
Throughout the event 6 more Future Stars will be available through SBCs and Objectives. The final Future Star will be decided by you, the FUT community. Fan's logging into FUT between 6PM UK Saturday 19th January & 6PM UK 21st January will get to decide who should become the Fan's Future Star by casting their vote in a special Player Pick.
AARON WAN-BISSAKA (Crystal Palace): A cheap price tag and impressive defensive displays this season have made Wan-Bissaka a must have for fantasy Premier League managers. He's currently competing with Europe's established defensive superstars for tackles and interceptions despite being only 21.
ALLAN SAINT-MAXIMIN (OGC Nice): Another French winger on the production line of talent that fueled France's success this summer. Despite making his debut at just 16, Saint-Maximin has struggled to hold down a regular club place throughout his teens. Thanks to continued progression under Nice manager Patrick Vieira, Saint-Maximin is again showing signs of why he is so highly rated.
REISS NELSON (TSG Hoffenheim): Another English winger taking the Bundesliga by storm this season. The Arsenal loanee has had blistering start life in Germany, racking up 6 goals in his first 7 appearances in the league. His continued progress could see Nelson establish himself under new manager Unai Emery when his loan expires in the summer.
KRZYSZTOF PIATEK (Genoa): The Polish strikers' transfer to Genoa this summer might have been overshadowed by bigger names joining Serie A, but 9 goals in 7 games gave Piatek the perfect head start in the race for the golden boot this season. His impressive goal return is starting to turn heads in Italy and even further afield.
BRAHIM DÍAZ (Real Madrid): There's not many 19 year-olds who can say they've played for both Manchester City and Real Madrid, but Brahim Diaz isn't your every day 19 year old. Struggling for game time at City, Diaz opted to move back to his native Spain with current UEFA Champions League holders, Real Madrid.
