It’s important to make the right signings in your FIFA 22 Career Mode save early on. With the first signing window set to open up plenty of opportunities with new free agents and players on contract expiry, here’s the few you need to keep an eye out for.
With the Summer transfer window upon us, there’ll be plenty of star signings to nab at the end of it all when FIFA 22 comes out, so here are the top players — currently — with expiring contracts, and the best free agents you need to look out for.
Top FIFA 22 Career Mode players with contracts expiring in 2022
The cover star of FIFA 21 could be up for grabs at the end of the first year of your Career Mode save — if PSG doesn’t re-sign him before then.
While Goretzka had an up-and-down season in 2021 due to injury, you’d hardly have to worry about that in FIFA 22.
Ronaldo could be yours if he doesn’t retire at 37 in FIFA 22, with his Juventus contract expiring in Summer 2022.
Like Ronaldo, Dybala only has a year left on his contract at Juventus, but the 27-year-old will have more legs in him for a longer save.
With only one season left at Old Trafford for now, Pogba could be up for grabs early on in FIFA 22.
The Ligue 1 winning goalkeeper only has a year left on his contract at Lille.
Fati had blistering potential in FIFA 21 at 90. You can expect that to increase in FIFA 22, along with Barca teammate Pedri — both 18.
Between Stones and Christensen, there’s plenty of Premier League centre backs on the Summer 2022 transfer market.
A more budget goalkeeping option, getting Lloris for a year or two at the end of his Spurs contract could be a massive boon.
Best FIFA 22 Free Agents to sign
While he shouldn’t be out of a gig for long, you can’t not talk about the possibility of Messi being a free agent. Managing a big club in Career Mode? Sign him instantly.
The long-time Real Madrid defender is out of a contract, and while he’s linked with Manchester City right now, if that falls through, he’ll be fair game.
The 2016 German Footballer of the Year was linked with Barcelona earlier this year, but as October approaches, he could be a free agent ready to join your Career Mode save.
After a stint in China with Guangzhou FC, Paulinho is now a free agent heading into the summer window, and has a couple of years left in him.
A free agent since January, if Alex Teixeira gets added into the game in FIFA 22, he will be a great budget option from day 1 for any save.
Like Teixeria, Costa — a free agent since January — could help you earn promotion in the first couple of years of your save if you nab him early.
