For this guide, we’ll be talking about the various game modes in Football Manager 2024, as the mode you choose can affect the different players that are available to you in the free agent market. So for the initial list, we’ll be using the Original game mode, before showing you some of the best free transfers if you select the Your World option. The Real World option doesn’t affect the transfer market any differently than the Original mode, due to players still being guaranteed to move to their eventual teams on the actual date they moved in real life. Here’s the list of the best Original mode free transfers:

  • David De Gea
  • Jesse Lingard
  • Luiz Gustavo
  • André Ayew
  • Roberto Soriano
  • Marco Benassi
  • Jean-Philippe Gbamin
  • Lucas Biglia

The Original and Real World game modes only allow you to sign players who are currently available as free agents as free transfers in Football Manager 2024. This means that any player who is a free agent at the time the Football Manager database was created for the year is going to be available for you to sign.

This makes players like Lionel Messi and the rest of the list above available for you to sign at a moment’s notice if they want to sign for your club, that is. So while there are 10 great players there, there are countless more in-game that you can find yourself!

He also enjoys listening to music of most genres and types, and is always on the search for media that combines his love for music with other mediums and genres, like Symphogear.
