Whether you're taking charge of your local semi-pro team in the eighth tier, or leading one of the world's elite squads to the final of the Champions League, there are few gaming experiences quite as enthralling, and addictive, as that of the Football Manager series.
Each year, one of the main questions on every manager's mind is how can they use the transfer market to strengthen their team. For those who are planning on taking charge of big-money clubs like PSG, Man City, and even possibly Newcastle pending its takeover, there are almost no restrictions on which players are available.
For the rest of us, however, scouring the market to find hidden gems is a must, and any FM stalwart worth their salt knows that youth is the way to go when it comes to building a long-term dynasty, and establishing a legacy at your team.
Few things are quite as rewarding as taking a team of prospects and crafting them into elite players ready to take on the world's premier competitions. These signings will allow you to do just that, and most of them won't even break the bank in the process.
