The best central midfielders to sign on Football Manager 2024

Do-it-all central midfielders have enjoyed a resurgence in recent years and there are plenty of top players available on Football Manager 2024.

Regardless of the budget you're working with, you can find real value as you seek to build a midfield that can take you to the next level.

Here are 90min's top picks for central midfielders to sign on FM24.

Cheap options

Alvaro Fidalgo

At just £500,000, you won't find better value than Fidalgo, who is the perfect attack-minded midfielder if you can cope with his 6 tackling.

Stefano Sensi

You can usually find a bargain or two from Inter and Sensi is that cut-price option this year. £5.5m is more than fair for the 27-year-old creator.

Corentin Tolisso

Injury problems have seen many forget just how good Tolisso actually is. He's incredibly versatile and can be picked up for a cool £5.5m.

Nahitan Nandez

If you want a defensive option for this role, Nandez at £2.9m is a smart pick-up. His 15 tackling is great and his 12 passing will help keep him afloat in midfield.

Miralem Pjanic

Former Barcelona and Juventus man Pjanic is still only 33 years old and still has a good few years left to enjoy his 18 passing. £2.5m will get you the veteran's signature.

Reasonable options

Youssouf Fofana
AS Monaco

Fofana, 24, is good enough to play for most teams with his 15 tackling and 14 passing. He's available for £12.5m when the game begins thanks to his expiring contract.

Hicham Boudaoui
OGC Nice

23-year-old Boudaoui is one of the most exciting prospects in French football. £9m is a sensational price for such a well-rounded player with nice potential.

Dani Parejo

One of the best deep-lying playmakers out there, 34-year-old Parejo looks excellent with 18 passing and 17 vision. You won't get many years out of him but, at £10.5m, that's not a massive problem.

Gedson Fernandes

Rebuilding his career in Turkey after a few difficult years, Fernandes is a really nice midfielder whose £14.5m asking price is worth considering. His 18 stamina should make him perfect for a combative role.

Salis Abdul Samed
RC Lens

Another defence-first midfielder, Samed looks like a well-rounded option for a mid-table side looking for a long-term building block.

Expensive options

Piotr Zielinksi

At £42m, Zielinski is steep but worth it. While his 8 tackling will need compensating with a smart partner, his 17 passing and 16 vision will make him the perfect orchestator for an elite side.

Mikel Merino
Real San Sebastian

A £38.5m release clause in Merino's contract should pique your interest. He's a tall ball-carrier with 16 passing and 14 dribbling.

Rodrigo de Paul
A. Madrid

De Paul is a bit of a do-it-all player. He comes with a £69m release clause but, thankfully, he can be signed for £46m.

Ali Al Musrati

Braga are full of bargains this year. In midfield, Al Musrati is your man at just £25.5m. He brings 16 for both passing and vision, and his 14 tackling is an excellent bonus.


£32m is a high price for a player of Andre's current ability but the Arsenal and Liverpool target looks like he could explode into one of the best midfielders around in just a few years.

Adrien Rabiot

Rabiot's expiring contract makes him available for a cool £31m at the start of the game. For a well-rounded player who can attack and defend at a high level, that's not bad at all.
