Can't wait until 2024?

If you're looking to bring in other top stars for free, but don't want to wait until 2024, then take a look at these other lists.

In your first season, you can look to bring in the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Paulo Dybala, and Paul Pogba, all of whom have contracts expiring in 2022.

If they don't take your fancy, then how about waiting for contract expiries in 2023, which include Lionel Messi, Christiano Ronaldo, and Mohamed Salah

What is a Contract Expiry signing?

A contract expiry signing is securing a player on a free transfer as the contract with their current club enters its final six months.

You sign the player on what is known as a pre-contract agreement, for the player to join your club on a free transfer when their current contract expires.

You can only sign players this way who have less than six months remaining on their contract and are over the age of 23.

TOP TIP: You can assign your scout to focus players who are nearing their contract expiry.

Harry Kane (OVR 90 - POT 90)

Age: 27

Position(s): ST

Club: Tottenham Hotspur

Wage: £206,000 a week

Yes, one of the game's top strikers can be yours for free - are you jealous Manchester City?

He will be just over 30 by the time you're able to make the deal, but if Robert Lewandowski is anything to go by, Harry Kane will show you that age is just a number.

Erling Haaland (OVR 88 - POT 94)

Age: 20

Position(s): ST

Club: Borussia Dortmund

Wage: £95,000 a week

Rumour has it that Erling Haaland has a release clause that comes into effect this coming January, so if you want him for free you'd best hope that other clubs don't swoop in for him.

If Borussia Dortmund does manage to keep hold of him, then you could be getting one of the top prospects in the game on a free.

Not only that, but with a few more seasons under his belt, you could be looking at getting a 90+ OVR striker for nothing.

Marquinhos (OVR 88 - POT 91)

Age: 27

Position(s): CB, CDM

Club: PSG

Wage: £138,000 a week

A formidable force in the centre of the PSG defence, Marquinhos is another man looking to reach 90+ OVR.

Already highly talented on and off the ball, after a few seasons you could get a Marquinhos with added pace and strength - as FIFA likes boosting physical stats in Career Mode.

Matthijs de Ligt (OVR 85 - POT 90)

Age: 21

Position(s): CB

Club: Piemonte Calcio (Juventus)

Wage: £70,000 a week

This seems like a no-brainer.

Already a top defender, by the time you sign him Matthijs de Ligt will be a few years older, one of the best CB's in the game, and still improving!

You can reinforce with one of the best and still get around a decade of use out of him.

Phil Foden (OVR 84 - POT 92)

Age: 21

Position(s): LW, CAM, CM

Club: Manchester City

Wage: £120,000 a week

Another exciting prospect, Phil Foden has the potential to be one of the best players in the game.

Manchester City fans close your eyes because The Stockport Iniesta will inevitably be captured by most players for free.

Theo Hernandez (OVR 84 - POT 90)

Age: 23

Position(s): LB

Club: AC Milan

Wage: £44,000 a week

Young, quick, and with great potential, Theo Hernandez is set to become the best left-back the game has to offer.

Hernandez's wages aren't extortionate either, so it is a very affordable and sensible signing.

Nicolo Barella (OVR 85 - POT 90)

Age: 24

Position(s): CM

Club: Inter

Wage: £112,000 a week

Nicolo Barella is already a total midfielder, and with a potential of 90 OVR will keep improving.

With high attacking and defensive work rates, he will get about the pitch, equally happy on the ball creating or screening the defence.

Mason Mount (OVR 83 - POT 89)

Age: 22

Position(s): CAM, RW

Club: Chelsea

Wage: £103,000 a week

A workman in midfield that possesses incredible ability, Mason Mount can run the game in the centre of the park.

With 84 PAS and 83 DRI, he is a man that can make things happen, even if it means using his 82 Long Shots to fire one in himself.

Jules Kounde (OVR 83 - POT 89)

Age: 22

Position(s): CB

Club: Sevilla

Wage: £28,000 a week

A favourite player in the FUT community, Jules Kounde can add some pace to your side at CB.

He's not just about speed though, already very solid with 84 DEF, 88 Jumping and 79 Strength, Kounde can fix any problem you may face defensively.

Pau Torres (OVR 82 - POT 89)

Age: 24

Position(s): CB

Club: Villarreal

Wage: £30,000 a week

The fifth and final defender on the list, Pau Torres is another man that can become one of the top defenders in the game.

Not as mobile as the others on the list, he will still be a hard man to pass with top defensive attributes, while also being an aerial presence.
