Goal rounded up the top 50 players available on a free transfer at the start of FIFA 20 career mode
Manage mega-clubs like Real Madrid or Manchester United in career mode in FIFA 20 is not a sufficient challenge for some people. Instead, they like to take over a sleeping giant or a lower league team for a more difficult career.
Smaller teams in FIFA 20 do not have the transfer budgets or salary allowances to compete with the big clubs and therefore managers need to be savvy in the transfer market. One of these methods is to recruit players on a free transfer, to pick up Outside the contract players to reduce costs.
There are always players available for a free transfer, but many of them are club-less for some reason and looking for them is a waste of time. However, there are a few gems to be found as free agents early in the game, including seasoned veterans like Balazs Dzdudzsak, Wilfried Bony and Hector Moreno, as well as young stars like Wilmar Barrios who has the potential to become a 83- ranked midfielder despite his absence in FIFA 20.
Some of these players have found clubs in real life, but are left on their own in Career mode as their clubs are not licensed in FIFA 20. Likewise, a few of the players on this list will be randomly assigned to clubs at the start. of the game, although he never played for them in real life. Therefore, not all of the players on this list will be available for free in every career, but many will not be tied at the start of the game.

* The ages shown correspond to the age at the start of Career Mode.
The best way to find which players are available is to go through the Transfers section and then use the player search feature. You can then search for individual players by name to see if they are still not attached or if they were assigned to a club at the start of Career Mode.
The Transfer Status filter also has an option for Free Agents which will display all unattached players in alphabetical order. These can be further filtered by position into goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards.
It’s worth checking out the list of free agents in the Transfers section at the end of each season in Career mode, as more and more players will lose their attachment each year.
