The beta for Football Manager 2018 went live on Thursday night, giving football fans their first chance to test out the newest version of the game and take charge of their favourite team.
Virtual managers will be looking to strengthen their teams as soon as they start up the game, but many of the world’s biggest and best names may be a little out of their price range at the beginning.
Following his €222 million transfer from Barcelona to PSG, Brazil forward Neymar is the joint most expensive player in FM2018, with a market value of €95m.
However, even if you do have that much to spend in your initial wage budget, it is unlikely that the Ligue 1 giants will be willing to sell their new superstar.
Here are the most expensive players:
🔰Neymar (PSG) – €95m
🔰Lionel Messi (Barcelona) – €95m
🔰Kevin de Bruyne (Man City) – €87m
🔰Gareth Bale (Real Madrid) – €84m
🔰Sergio Aguero (Man City) – €82m
🔰Robert Lewandowski (Bayern) – €82m
🔰Antoine Griezmann (Atletico) – €81m
🔰Isco (Real Madrid) – €78m
🔰Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – €78m
