Best FM20 Free Players – Top 100

Best FM20 Free Players Shortlist

Cash strapped and looking for players on a budget? After a few days browsing and scouting I bring you our best FM20 free players shortlist. Each player should do well for most top flight clubs and some will sign for second tier teams also.

Need an attacking FM20 tactic, try Knap’s BEOWULF 4-4-2, we won the top flight quadruple with York City, just click here.

FM 2020 free players over the age of 25 are rated by current ability, players 25 and under by their potential so all bases are covered.

You can sort the list by clicking any header column or by searching for position, ie ‘MC’ for midfielders. I have also included minimum wage requirements for all Football Manager 2020 free players this should help filter out unrealistic transfer targets. A star is the FMS mark of approval.

FMS Favourites: star1

Scroll to the bottom and you can download all these Football Manager 2020 free players in a shortlist. You can then see which players will join your club and start building your team. The only way to see each one of the FM20 free players listed below is to load a large database with England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Argentina and Brazil loaded as playable (just the top divisions in each country needed).
