Five Football Manager bargains and how they compare in real life

We all love spending hours searching away on Football Manager 2016 for the next big thing to take your team to the pinnacle of the game.

Everyone enjoys finding the player that proves to be a bargain gem and watching him take the league by storm.

Here we take a look at some Football Manager bargains and how they compare in real life…

Anwar El Ghazi

If you’re after a pacey, agile winger El Ghazi is your man. The Ajax winger has a five-star potential and is up for grabs at £8m. If you need goals, creativity or simply an outlet on your right wing flank, seriously consider the 21-year-old.

On the real pitch, the Dutchman is just as impressive and scored 11 goals in the Eredivisie, guiding Ajax to a second placed finish.

El Ghazi has been linked to a move to the Premier League with Liverpool, with their free betting offers, be sure to check out Bookies.com for the best odds on the upcoming season.

Ron Vlaar

If you’re short of money and in search of a solid, reliable, no-nonsense defender – look no further than Vlaar.

In the real world, AZ Alkmaar made a December swoop for his services, but is still available for a minimal fee. The Dutch international's wages aren't even a stumbling block - he's quite simply a must-sign.

Vlaar is an experienced head at the peak of his career, with very decent technical and mental stats, while he's also strong and particularly quick for a big defender.

Jaime Mata

Mata is a bargain Championship striker, if you can convince him to join the revolution at whichever club you're in charge of, he’ll excel.

The 27-year-old striker is entering his prime and is worth around £1.1m. However, his release clause is just £110k with tiny wages.

His stats may look nothing special, but in the Championship he will be brilliant. Mata is a great all-round striker with good finishing ability with strong physical stats meaning he could line up up-front by himself or with a partner.

He would be a shrewd move to make with an impressive real-life goal record at Girona, registering 21 in 81 games.

Jhon Arango

Youngster Arango is a no-risk signing for any lower Premier League or Championship club. His stats are promising and has plenty of time to develop, specialise and grow into a real world beater.

The 18-year-old is valued at around an incredibly low £25k with wages of £15 per-week. With work on his physique, your minimal investment will return hugely.

In real life, very little is known about the attacking midfielder.

Andrija Zivkovic

If you’re looking for a young winger to blood into your team for a minimal fee, look no further than bargain buy Zivkovic.

His price can be inconsistent, with some players having to cough up several millions for the Serbian starlet, but with careful negotiation, others have managed to whittle his price down to comfortably less than £1m.

The 19-year-old is the next Partizan youth product to roll into the public eye, following in the footsteps of established talents Stefan Jovetic, Matija Nastasic, Adem Ljajic and Aleksandar Mitrovic. With the right training, he becomes as good as any of them and exceeds the talent his price tag would suggest.

In real life the player recently joined Benfica after scoring 12 last term.
