One of the best parts of Career Mode in FIFA 22 is the ability to spend millions and millions to build an unrivalled super team.

Building a squad full of the best players has never been as beneficial as it is in FIFA 22 as the all-new HyperMotion technology ensures those superstars play as close to their real-life models as possible. If you've got a star on your team, you'll know it.

If you're blessed with a huge budget in Career Mode, here are five different ways you could splash the cash.

1. Splash out on a superstar

When you come into big money, the first thing that comes to mind is throwing it at a superstar who would otherwise be untouchable.

The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Erling Haaland, Harry Kane and Neymar all come with enormous values that even the biggest teams would usually be unable to afford, so you could move for one of them now and give your team a new hero.

There might not be a lot of cash left over to sign any other players, but if you've got one of those big names in your squad, that's not really a problem.

2. Enter rebuild mode

Instead of buying a ready-made superstar, you could easily bring in a handful of players who are destined to become world-beaters just a few years down the line.

A new load of money could facilitate moves for future stars like Florian Wirtz, Ansu Fati and Ryan Gravenberch, all of whom start off as decent players but can reach 90 overall in just a year or two.

Immediate success might be a little hard to come by, but the trophy cabinet is going to be overflowing soon enough.

3. Build a terrifying front line

Most of the fun in FIFA comes in attack, so why not treat yourself to a monstrous front line?

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will both be well within your price range now, and if you're lucky, you might have enough money left over for someone like Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane.

You'll get a few years of complete and utter domination out of a forward trio like that, but don't forget to prepare yourself for the future as well.

4. Sweep up the wonderkids

With all that new-found cash, it might be time to head out on a shopping spree and pick up the future superstars who are set to take the game by storm in four or five years.

Jamal Musiala, Ilaix Moriba, Harvey Elliott, Gavi and Yunus Musah are some of the game's most-promising young names, and in FIFA 22, they're destined to grow into champions with the right management.

Their values are only going to rise, so getting in their early may be the best move for your bank balance.

5. Shore up at the back

You won't win anything with a shaky defence, so you might want to use your riches to build a backline that resembles a brick wall.

Usually untouchable defenders like Virgil van Dijk, Sergio Ramos, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kalidou Koulibaly will become attainable with the bigs bucks flowing, and you could even try your luck at landing Jan Oblak, Manuel Neuer or Marc-Andre ter Stegen to shore things up in goal.

Nobody's finding a way through that kind of defence, and that'll win you games on its own.
