FM 2016 Best Players - Football Manager 2016 Release Clause Bargains

Welcome to the list of Football Manager 2016 release clause bargains by FMSCOUT.com.

Football Manager 2016 good players with fair release clause fee

This list includes quality player with reasonable release fee in Football Manager 2016. You will notice that most players belong to Spanish clubs because setting a minimum fee release clause is required to be present in contracts there. This is part of our FM 2016 top bargains article series.

Top 140+ FM16 release clause bargains included.

Released: Nov 2, 2015

What are release clause bargains?

They are good players with a fair release clause fee that it's recommended to activate. Once you offer the release clause fee, the club where the player belongs is forced to accept your bid and let you negotiate a contract with the player. Some players on my list don't have a bargain release fee if you only consider their quality in the first season, but it could be reasonable 1-2 seasons later if it stays the same.

What does the rating (R) mean?

It's a personal recommendation system for your convenience. I'm using a 1-100 scale based on English divisions.

Important: For this particular list, I'm experimenting with a different ranking approach that's based on a player's best role instead of his overall quality.

87+ all-time elite player
84-86 great player for premiership
81-83 solid backup for premiership
78-80 top player for championship
75-77 top player for league one
72-74 top player for league two

    @downloadkct: I'm not using Genie Scout ratings for my lists. I use GS for quick search and to check on potential attributes, but the ratings here are more of a personal recommendation.

    Did you guys use FM15 players data to do this ? Because i did some search on some players using GS16g and they were all wrong lol
