Best Ways to Find Bargains in Football Manager

No matter what level you are managing at, when it comes to recruiting new players, you should always be looking for bargains in Football Manager.

Best Ways to Find Bargains in Football Manager 2022No matter what level you are managing at, when it comes to recruiting new players, you should always be looking for bargains in your Football Manager save.


Obviously, you can always track player updates and transfers on a site like www.th-footballfans.net, and find who's being transferred where or who's leaving on a Bosman ruling, but we'll take a look at how to do this in Football Manager.

With that in mind, here are some of the best methods for doing just that.

Free Agents in Football Manager

When looking at the Free Agents list, sort them by International Caps.

Is there a bigger bargain than a free player? Free agents can be some of the most cost-effective signings in Football Manager but they might not be as cheap as they appear.

It’s important to treat a free signing like any other – weigh up their value to your squad and how useful they would be. There is no use in signing free agents just because they’re good value if you’re going to end up paying potentially high wages for a player you’re better off without.

Having said that, there are definitely bargains to be had so as soon as player’s contracts expire you can be on the hunt for those cut-price options.

Expiring Contracts

It's best to search for Bosman players at the Winter transfer window.

In a similar vein, players approaching the end of their contract can be great bargains too. When you choose to approach these players depends on the player and your circumstances. Head over to the ‘players’ tab under ‘scouting’ and sort by expiring to view players nearing the end of their current contracts.

High profile players in the final year of their contract may be worth making a bid for in the hopes that the selling club accepts a lower bid. Alternatively, you can wait until they approach the final months of their contract and approach the player directly with a contract offer.

Finally, if the player is low priority but would still be a useful addition, you can keep tabs on them by shortlisting and waiting until their contract is up before deciding whether to offer a contract or not.

Loans with Option to Buy


Best Ways to loans in Football Manager
Make sure the player is interested in transfer and in a loan deal.

This can be a very effective method of sealing high-value players whom you can’t currently afford. It’s often the case that you’ll find a high-potential player listed for a loan who you would love to sign permanently but simply don’t have the funds to do that.

When agreeing on the loan, it is best to always agree on an option to buy if possible. Even if the fee is way beyond your current budget, there may come a time when you can afford that player – particularly with longer loan spells.

A promotion to a higher league or a cash injection from the board may allow you to exercise that option to buy, sealing you a potential bargain that seemed out of reach.

Buy-Out Clauses

Add Condition > Contract > Clauses (Release) > Pick one

These are unlikely to concern managers of smaller clubs but anyone managing well-off clubs can find real bargains. When searching for a player, select ‘minimum fee release clause’ under ‘contract’ to browse through players with buy-out clauses.

The majority of results will bring up players with clauses way beyond their value or even potential value but there are certainly gems to be found. These players are likely to be relatively expensive but can still be excellent value.
