If you’re in need of a player who can play multiple positions, then Bochum’s Anthony Losilla could be your man. He can slot in at CM, CDM, and CB, making him a very useful squad player. His legs are starting to go, but the Frenchman still has something about him, with decent technical skills. 

Most of the best players you can get in this price range are future stars. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing! Laurin Ulrich looks the best of the CMs to pick up, with the German already having decent movement stats. Get him on the training ground and he will be a top box-to-box midfielder in no time! 

We also find a top young goalkeeper in the Bundesliga, who plays for Stuttgart as well! Dennis Seimen is one of many hidden gems. His 61 OVR is set to increase massively, helping you battle for trophies, possibly even the Champions League!

Motherwell midfielder Lennon Miller is the standout of the bunch, offering the best value for money. The Scot has the highest potential of any player under £1 million. Sign him and he can control your play for over a decade. 

FC 24 Best Bargains – Less than £5 million 

Got a bit more spending money? Here are the best bargains for less than £5 million in FC 24

Jorrel HatoAjax17CB£2.4M£4256887
Julien DuranvilleBorussia Dortmund17LM£2.3M£8506687

With £5 million to spend you can pick up some notable names in FC 24 Career Mode! It’s enough to get you a Premier League goalkeeper, with out-of-favour Hugo Lloris looking to depart from Tottenham Hotspur

You could also make an offer for Leicester City favourite Jamie Vardy, although he has lost the pace that made him so threatening. However, we think a better attacking option to slot into your team straight away is Anthony Nwakaeme. The Nigerian striker isn’t one of the fastest players in FC 24 but still has something about him. With brilliant physicality to hold the ball up and good dribbling ability, he could be a class target man. 

Ajax has a history of producing really talented youngsters, with Jorrel Hato coming from their production line. He already has decent pace for a CB and can develop into one of the best in the game! 

Borussia Dortmund are also known for developing some of the best young players around. They currently have a couple of class wingers on the books. A double deal for Jamie Bynoe-Gittens and Julien Duranville would bring lightening pace to your flanks and keep your LW and RW occupied for years to come. 

FC 24 Best Bargains – Less than £10 million 

You can get some top-class reinforcements now, with the best bargains for less than £10 million in FC 24  as follows: 

Manuel NeuerBayern Munich37GK£7.7M£47k8787
Keylor NavasPSG36GK£5.1M£51k8585
Francesco AcerbiInter35CB£8.1M£57k8383

Evan FergusonBrighton18ST£8.5M£22k7486
Romeo LaviaChelsea19CDM£6M£27k7386
Rico LewisManchester City18RB£6M£17k7386

With £10 million to spend you can go after some very familiar names. Manuel Neuer may be getting on a bit, but the Bayern Munich goalkeeper is still one of the best around. He and Paris Saint-Germain counterpart Keylor Navas are classic bargain signings for FC 24 Career Mode. However, they do have high wage demands! 

Fernando is a very solid option if you’re in need of a midfielder. The Brazilian hasn’t lost his legs just yet and can slot in at CB too. 

If you’re not worried about having pace up top, then look no further than France international and AC Milan marksman Olivier Giroud! This guy is an ideal target man, with top strength and an eye for goal. Just don’t expect to see him outrunning many opponents. 

Dinamo Zagreb’s Martin Baturina could be a total steal, with very low wage demands. The Croatian has decent movement attributes and great dribbling already, with a high potential which could make him your team’s star man. 

Evan Ferguson also looks like he could go all the way to the top, so sign him up quickly before his price skyrockets! The Brighton forward is being dubbed as the next Harry Kane, and it’s easy to see why. 

It’s not just Career Mode where players are spending their time, with FC 24 Ultimate Team underway and getting plenty of play! Lionel Messi moving to Inter Miami in the MLS and Cristiano Ronaldo to Al Nassr in the Saudi Pro League means starter squads could look a bit different this year! If you want the best FC 24 Serie A starter squad, or an FC 24 Ligue 1 starter team, we’ve got you covered! With all the top leagues catered for, this is going to be a brilliant season!
