Goalkeepers, in FM, will play a bit longer in their career than a lot of players in other positions. You can sign a 30 year old keeper and get another 5 or 6 years out of them. 

In this list below we will outline who the best keepers are in FM23 the very moment you load up the game, a lot of them will be unobtainable unless you’re at one of the very best clubs in the game.

FM23 Best Goalkeepers

Thibaut Courtois30Real MadridBelgium
Manuel Neuer36Bayern MunichGermany

Marc-Andre ter Stegen30BarcelonaGermany
Mike Maignan27MilanFrance
Gianluigi Donnarumma23PSGItaly
Keylor Navas34PSGCosta Rica
David de Gea31Manchetser UtdSpain

We have kept the list to ten, because these are the stand outs in the game, although there are a few big omissions like Lloris and Sommer.

No products found.

However, for keepers, we have also put together a list of players that are bit younger than the majority of the ones above, but they’re also more realistic for you to sign. Especially if you’re at a smaller club.

FM23: Best Goalkeepers to Sign

Name AgeClubNationality
Illan Meslier 22Leeds UtdFrance
Girogio Mamardeshvili21Valencia Georgia
Juan Musso28AtalantaArgentina
Dean Henderson25Nottingham Forest (on loan) England
Justin Bijlow24FeyenoordHolland
Arnau Tenas21Barcelona BSpain
Altay Bayindir24FenerbahceTurkey
Julen Agirrezabala21A. BilbaoSpain
Dominik Livakovic27Dinamo ZagrebCroatia

All of the players above are much younger, and would be great singings if you don’t quite have the riches of some of the larger teams in the game. Our pick of the bunch is Altay Bayindir, he may not be as well known as some of the other players on the list, but he seems to be able to develop incredibly quickly on FM.

Meslier would also be a great option, but he is already at a Premier League, so the chance are he is going to cost a lot. Unless of course, Leeds are relegated.

That is definitely something to keep in mind on FM, always scout the teams that are being relegated for your league, as you can grab some of their better players for less.

Who is the Best Goalkeeper in FM23?

Thibaut Courtois is the best goalkeeper in FM23. At 30 years old he still has plenty of years left before he begins to slow down, but he will be a difficult player pry away from Real Madrid as he is their current No.1.

It is worth noting though, his distribution and eccentricity is quite poor compared to keepers like Ederson and Alisson.
