Football Manager 2018 Shortlists - FM18 Shortlist: Jamie's Top Bargains

While waiting for Stam's ultimate list of Football Manager 2018 top bargains, I've compiled this smaller list of top players you can get for less than 20 million (in GBP).

Some of the players in the shortlist can possibly be purchased for lower/mid-table Premier League teams. Some players such as Timo Horn (who is valued at 12M) has a low release clause for his ability, therefore becoming a bargain!

I intend to keep updating this list with more players I find myself and following feedback I receive here, on my live stream and on our discord channel. So feel free to post your suggestions and I'll check them out.

This shortlist file can be used with the FM18 Beta. Once final FM18 is out, I'll update the downloadable with a .fmf file instead.
