Let's take a look at which teams have the biggest starting transfer budgets in Football Manager 2018.
FM19 Starting Transfer Budgets
Starting a new game of FM18 is always exciting, and few things are more gratifying than remodeling a poor, debt-addled team from strugglers to Champion's League contenders. Such long-term projects can be challenging at the start, but the bigger the effort, the greater the victory, and sometimes it's fun to start with a handicap and battle through adversity.
Sometimes, however, you just want to start with a giant pile of money and go bunkers in the transfer market. Football Manager 2018 is full of sugar daddy chairmen who aren't shy in opening their wallets.
Whether you're attending to establish a long-term dynasty or add to an already star-studded squad, there's a team for you. Though the bulk of these teams sit in their league's upper echelons, many are mediocre at best, but have more than enough funds to improve the squad and take the team to the next level.
Excluding unplayable sides, here are the 11 richest clubs in Football Manager 2018.
11. Paris Saint Germain - Transfer Budget 40.166.608(£)
As if it was not enough to have the likes of Neymar, Mbappe, Cavani, Veratti, etc. at your side, but you also get a healthy transfer budget of £40m to help you out in a fight for the Ligue 1 and the Champion's League glory. FM18 French Ligue 1 Transfer Budgets
10. Man United - Transfer Budget 42.000.000(£)
United are predicted to finish 2nd behind their fierce rival, Man City. But you might beat the odds with the newcomers such as Matic and Lukaku and a starting transfer budget of £42m, which can be pumped up to £57m, but leaves less space in maneuvering with wages.

9. Bayern - Transfer Budget 44.574.008(£)
Expectations are high, and so is the transfer budget at the greatest German club, FC Bayern Munich. Carlo Ancelotti lasted just over a year at the helm of Bavarians, despite winning the Bundesliga, but failed in the primary objective, the Champions League. Could you do better?

8. Zenit - Transfer Budget 44.574.008(£)
In the last two seasons, the Sine-Belo-Golubye finished third on both occasions in their national league. But this year it could be finally their time to reclaim the power in Russia, according to media predictions. An enormous transfer budget of £44m will undoubtedly add weight to these claims.
7. Real Madrid - Transfer Budget 53.488.808(£)
Test yourself with the most stressful Football Manager 2018 situation possible and give managing of Real Madrid a try. NOTHING, but success will keep you at the helm of the most successful club on the planet! It might seem simple, but just one little slip up and here comes Barca knocking. Transfer budget of £53m will help you on this adventure.
6. Chelsea - Transfer Budget 64.000.000(£)
One would believe that the board's expectations would be much higher this term at the Stanford Bridge, but it seems Roman will let you slip with an average first season. What is needed is CL's Quarter Final, Premier League - qualify for the CL (top 3 finish will do), FA Cup - reaching the final. Seems pretty easy to survive with the current group of players. Hold on to your transfer budget and then build in the next season.
5. Tottenham - Transfer Budget 65.000.000(£)
Nobody is expecting from Tottenham any miracles this season. But with the current team and a healthy budget of £65m, you might just be able to provide some. Given you strengthen your defence at the centre and on the left. Maybe worth vile to take a look at the best FM18 wonderkids list for some inspiration.

4. FC Barcelona - Transfer Budget 71.318.408(£)
A massive transfer budget of £71m awaits you at the helm of Barca. Pundits will always consider Barca as a favourite only because of Messi, and rightly so if I may add. But what happens to Barca when Messi gets injured, and there is no Neymar to lead the team? Could be an interesting one to find out. FM18 Spanish La Liga Transfer Budgets
3. Liverpool - Transfer Budget 75.000.000(£)
One of the top 4 league positions, Champions League Quarter Final and an FA Cup Final are enough to keep your job at Liverpool. All this on a transfer budget of £75m will be enough to achieve this? Maybe not with the current defence at the club. Jon Flanagan deserves promotion to the first team.
2. Arsenal - Transfer Budget 80.000.000(£)
Arsenal are trying to cover the lack of quality depth at the defensive positions with a massive transfer budget. Don't get in "all attack" state of mind and buy more strikers or attacking midfielders, wingers... Strengthen up your defence with some world-class defenders and you might just disrupt the odds.

1. Man City - Transfer Budget 80.000.000(£)
Khaldoon Al Mubarak (Man City Chairman) want's from City to level up compared to the previous season. An excellent first team, maybe lacking a bit of depth outside of the first team but there's always that first £80m to throw away. No worries, they have one of the Foreground Sugar Daddy Clubs In FM 2018. This is the ideal club if you're just starting your first ever save on FM.
