Football Manager 2013 Cheap Players & Bargains

Football Manager 2013 Cheap Players & Bargains

After a number of requests, I decided to put together a list of the Football Manager 2013 cheap players and bargains. I can almost guarantee you won’t find a better bargain list than this on the internet. If you really are broke and can’t even afford some bargains, check out my free players list.

I have set the cut off as all players with a value under £2.5m, although the majority of the players on this list are under £1m. As always, the list can be sorted by age, value etc to suit your needs. There is also a downloadable shortlist at the bottom of this post.

  • dorin taranu

    Any romanian football players in your list?! Why not?!:)

    • Magic

      dirty gypsies

      • Andrei

        Not all gypsies are from Romania. I don’t like to be associated with them so don’t judge all of us if you don’t know us.

      • slobodanpopovic89

        Shut the fuck up! U so stupid… Inna looks like gipsy to you? Stupid ass… Fuck tis retard, best regards to our neighbours fro Srb.

    • Jack Best

      vlad chiriches is a great little player, costs about £3m and just gets better! think he’s 21 at the start

  • Lut

    Dzagoev is on contract with CSKA until 2014 IRL..

  • fulamhamster

    dzagoev best bargain ever…

  • ChristopherHeward

    Came across an old CM game, the 2000/01 version and I won the champions league with Sheffield Wednesday (and went the whole (literally) season top of the league). Had a strike force of Ronaldo, Robbie Keane, Vieri, Diego Tristan and Roque Santa Cruz (plus Rosado but think he was made up)! Funny how, although they were all relatively old, they’ve all faded in real life despite how good they were previously. Santa Cruz at Malaga!! (although I guess they’re doing alright in CL) https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6S5lV611T35RlBieVJzTjNlNTg

    • ChristopherHeward

      Quite funny (if you look at that link), how much wages have over-inflated. I had Gattuso and Ronaldo (original) on £55k a week as top team in England (& ultimately Europe) – about 3-5 times that in real life!)

      • Utd2013

        Wow, u just made me so nostalgic, reading names like vieri and diego tristan. my 1st football sim game was cm 96/97, or might have been 95/96 i remember i had klinsmann and a young del piero on my team.

  • lolol

    should have included carlos fierro( mexican striker)

  • Dobay

    You should add Cristian Danalache to that list :)

  • gamiolis

    cristian danalache very good player

  • Freddie

    Nicolai Jorgensen and Bolanos from FC Copenhagen is not central midfielders. Bolanos is mainly a right winger, but can be used as an attacking midfielder. Jorgensen is a plays most of his games as a left winger and in the attack.

  • Robertlufc

    I signed Anthony Stokes from Celtic for £2m in the January Window and also a dutch striker named Tim Janssen from FC Midtjylland

  • Czynx

    Gotta add stefan strandberg from Rosenborg. £35k. Solid CB

  • Czynx

    Got to add Stefan Strandberg to this list! £35k CB at Rosenborg. Solid defender!

  • http://twitter.com/kjelldobbelv Kjell-W.

    Yttergård Jensen. Buy him.

  • laszar

    Jan Lecjacks is a great left back, can get him for around 500k from young boys i think

  • matt

    luke shaw is extremely good

  • shuggy

    Kurt Zouma, CB, St Etienne, 17, goes for arouond £4/5m. Give him a season or two and he is unbelievable.

    • shuggy

      19, not 17.
