The FC 24 release date is now upon us, with plenty of players in the game already via FC 24 early access. If you are a Manager Career fan, these players’ contracts are due to run out in 2024, providing you with the chance to sign them for nothing in FC 24 Career Mode.

Kylian Mbappe (OVR 91)

This is the big one. French striker Kylian Mbappe’s contract stand-off with PSG has been all over the news, but can you secure his signature next season? Chances are he will sign an extension with PSG in the game, but if the opportunity to sign him for free arises, you must do everything in your power to bring him to your club.

Luka Modric (OVR 87)

Croatian maestro Luka Modric seems to keep getting better. Modric will almost certainly decline in FC 24 Career Mode though, so he might not be a priority target. That being said, he can certainly be a decent squad player for teams competing across numerous competitions. You won’t find better than Modric for free!

Manuel Neuer (OVR 87)

Veteran German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer could retire after one season in FC 24 Career Mode. However, if he doesn’t, he could provide an excellent short-term solution to any team in need of a world class keeper. This is one to keep an eye out for.

Dani Parejo (OVR 86)

Midfield maestro Dani Parejo will be among the best passers in FC 24. Parejo has never been the most mobile midfielder, but his technical ability is incredible. Adding him to your side for free could be a stroke of genius, and he can play a Pirlo-esque role in dictating the game.

Toni Kroos (OVR 86)

The introduction of FC 24 PlayStyles is a massive boost for the likes of Toni Kroos. Slower midfield players like the German star can now dictate the tempo of the game, just as they would in real life. Their passing PlayStyles feel brilliant in the game, so don’t sleep on Kroos.

How to sign players on pre-contract agreements?

Signing players for free in FIFA Career Mode has been very easy in recent seasons. Obviously you can look to the free agents to add players to your team for nothing, but there are often better players available to sign on pre-contract agreements.

If a player’s contract has six months or less, and they are aged 23 or over, you can offer them a contract for the upcoming season. They will then join your squad for the beginning of the new season without a transfer fee.

You can send your scouts to search for players whose contract is running out. In the scout instructions, limit the contract length to a maximum of one year, and their age to a minimum of 23 to ensure they are available to sign for free.
