FM 16 Free Agents: The Best Players With 1 Year Left On Their Contract

Looking for free agents to sign next season on Football Manager? We’ve listed them all.

realsport user by admin

Here are the best FM 16 free agents; a compilation of those players who choose NOT to renew their contracts after the first season, which leaves you with two choices:

  1. Gamble, and wait for the said player’s contract to expire so you can sign him for free in January, or failing that, the end of 2015/16 season
  2. Sign that player immediately, usually for a decent price, given that their contract expires soon

There’s every chance these players renew their contracts, so if you are more risk averse, sign them up at the start of a game save. I’ve put together a list of 5 players at every position who you can sign either for free after the first year, or sign immediately, depending on your preference. The ‘importance‘ column gives you an idea of if how urgently you should chase that player, rated out of 5, ranked as follows:

5 – Sign him up now whatever the cost

4 – Would be an excellent addition to your side, and comes at a decent price

3 – He is a player who you could risk waiting for his contract to expire, instead of signing him ASAP

2 – You would have to pay a fair bit for him, but keep an eye out for his contract situation

1 –  He either costs too much, or you’re highly unlikely to actually sign him
