This is a list with the top 5 free transfers in the Football Manager 21.4 patch.
To have a successful save in Football Manager 2021 squad building is one of the most important areas in the game. An effective tactic, great backroom staff and even a great manager aren't enough to win you the prizes you are aiming for. Building a great squad is vital and to achieve that you need funds.
However, due to the coronavirus pandemic it is important to be financially responsible for your club. You can't make big investments anymore and you should always keep a close eye on your finances. How great would it be if you can sign good players without spending a single penny? Ok, they will cost you a signing on fee and wages, but we can all agree these are much lower than the expected transfer fees in the game!
Top 5 free agents FM21.4
With that in mind here are the top 5 free transfers for the Football Manager 21.4 database.
5. Felipe Gutierrez
The 29-year-old midfielder has enjoyed a good career in Europe, playing for Dutch side FC Twente and later on Real Betis from Spain. He has also earned 35 caps for Chile and he is a good playmaking midfielder. In 2018 he joined Kansas City, but he has now left the MLS side on a free transfer.
4. Ezequiel Garay
Experienced Ezequiel Garay has left Valencia on a free transfer after his contract expired in 2020. He has been looking for a new club ever since and he is still a free agent in the 21.4 database. He will add experience to your squad and has the abilities to lead your defense. He might not be the best in terms of physical attributes, but he has the mental skills to still perform on a high level. He could also be an ideal role model for younger players in your team.
3. Ahmed Musa
The Nigerian international is only 28 years old and therefore in his prime. He came to Europe playing for Dutch side VVV-Venlo and then impressed for Russian giants CSKA Moscow. In 2016 he earned himself a transfer to Leicester City and although he had a decent first season, he was sent back to Moscow on loan in the following year. In 2018 he left Leicester to join Al-Nassr and he left that team at the end of 2020. In FM21 he is still an explosive winger and he has enough qualities to play for a team in the big leagues. Don't expect him to play for Real Madrid or Manchester City, but a lower table team could use him.
2. Alex Texeira
The 31-year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder still has a lot to offer and has the ability to lead a midfield for a lower tabled Premier League side or a top team in one of the leagues outside of the top five leagues in Europe. During his career he has played for Vasco da Gama, Shakhtar Donetsk and most recently Jiangsu FC in China. He left the Asians on January 1st 2021 and he has been looking for a new team ever since.
1. Diego Costa
Best player on the list is without a doubt Diego Costa. The former Spanish international left Atletico Madrid in January and he could be one of the most wanted strikers at the start of every FM21 save. He may not be the same player he was when he joined Chelsea in 2014, but he still has enough skills to score loads of goals. We have done various saves and we have seen him join many different clubs, including Valencia, AC Milan, Tottenham Hotspur and even Juventus.
