The Best Players to Target to Improve your Transfer Budget in Football Manager 2017

Every football manager worth his salt knows that one of the best ways to develop your team is to target young players with a lot of potential, cheap players, and free transfers early on. These players can often then be sold on for a lot more a season or two later, thus drastically increasing your transfer budget. A good example of a real-life top flight club that goes by this policy is Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs have made a fortune on the likes of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric in recent years, and look set to one day do the same with Harry Kane and Dele Alli. Here are two players that could end up turning a tidy profit in Football Manager 2017.

Diafro Sakho

West Ham have had a fairly turbulent season, and with some testing fixtures left, it might not be a bad idea to use a free bet recommended by Oddschecker on them going down at around 66/1 at the time of writing. Sakho has barely had a chance to fight for the struggling Hammers this season, though, and on Football Manager he is transfer-listed at the start of the game. This could be a reflection of how the London club feel about the player in real life. Nevertheless, Football Manager 2017 believes he has potential, and the 26-year-old starts the game with a valuation of £15.5 million. Because the Senegal international is transfer-listed, he can be snaffled up for around £8.5 million. Get a good season out of him and you could double or triple your money within a year.

Zakaria Labyad

Check out the real-life skills above of this youngster who is available on a free transfer at the start of Football Manager 2017. Labyad is an attacking midfielder with pace, strength, and set-piece potential who can play on the left side of an attacking trident. The 23-year-old, who went out on loan to Fulham last year, is not yet the finished article but has the potential to grow into a complete forward if given enough game time. Whatever happens, at such a young age you will be able to sell the player on for a healthy profit if you wish to do so. But you could also train him to become a key playmaker in your attack given that he has excellent vision, technique, and first touch.

Along with these two signings, checking out the free transfer list can provide some gems to help you along in your first season. You can pick up legends like Maicon and Dimitar Berbatov without spending any of your budget. Although they are old, they could provide that extra boost you need when starting out.
