The wait is almost over. It's nearly time to say goodbye to your social life and strap yourself in for your 2015-16 virtual football journey. Whether you're an experienced FM professional, a die-hard Champ-Manner or a Football Manager newbie it's always handy to know what players are available free of charge and I've managed to trawl through the extremely professional, detailed and newly designed FM (beta) database and identify the best fifteen players you can acquire for nothing more than a satisfactory contract offer. Now, obviously these players will suit a variety of different career saves. I'm not saying you should swoop for a 33-year-old central defender who's demanding £6k per week if you're Manchester City but the aforementioned past his sell-by date tackle master could still do a job for lesser team who will make him feel worthy again. Equally, there are a number of free agents on Football Manager 2016 who could become a great backup option at a top side and this year's release in-particular has some real quality lurking around the 'contract expired' menu. I'm not messing around, I'm talking 20 ratings. Believe... Please note that the information in this article has been taken from the Football Manager 2016 Beta Version. The full version of the game will be released on November 13th, 2015.
