Best FM 2016 Free Players – Top 100

Best FM 2016 Free players shortlist feature small

After a few days of browsing through the game and heavy scouting I can finally present you the best FM 2016 free players shortlist. The list is limited to 100 of the best FM 2016 free players, some of them are well-known to all football fans but others are young players with decent potential.

You can sort the list below by clicking on the column headers and you can also use the search bar, for instance if you need a player in a particular position. I have rated these FM 16 free players based on current ability (for the older players) and based on potential ability (for young players). I have also added their minimum wage requirements, so that you can see right away if you can afford that player or not. Most of them should be decent signings for top-flight clubs.

Scroll to the bottom of the list and you can download all these best FM 2016 free players in a shortlist. You can then load the shortlist into your game and sign the players that you need.

The only way to see each one of FM16 free players listed below is to load a large database with England, France, Italy, Spain, Argentina and Brazil loaded as playable (just the top divisions in each country needed).
