The Best Cheap Goalkeepers In FM 24

In Football Manager 2024, you may have the best strikers, midfielders, and defenders, but if you don’t have a solid goalkeeper as your last line of defense, your team will struggle to see out results. As is the theme with the game and with real life, the best players in every position are usually the most expensive, and goalkeepers are no different.

Best Attributes

Reflexes (16), Eccentricity (16), Rushing Out Tendency (16)

Player Value


Andrew is a 22-year-old Brazilian goalkeeper who plays for Gil Vincente in Portugal. He is an exceptional goalkeeper with many impressive attributes and potential. At 22, Andrew already has his playing style figured out, and it would be difficult to convert him to any other style.

He is not a sweeper keeper who comes off his line and involves himself in the passing play. However, Andrew is the one for you if you’re looking for an out-and-out shot-stopper with excellent reflexes. With so many years left before he even hits his prime, you’ll be reaping the benefits of his outstanding performances for a long time.

6 Luiz Junior

Best Attributes

Rushing Out Tendency (18), Reflexes (16), Jumping Reach (16)

Player Value


At the start of Football Manager 2024, Luiz Junior is 22 years old and already one of the best young goalkeepers in the game. His stats are impressive, most notably his concentration (15/20), which ensures that he isn’t caught out in counter-attacking situations or by sudden shots.

He also cuts an imposing figure in goal at 6’3 and has an impressive reach. With all these incredible stats and so much room for growth, it is shocking that this player is valued at such a low price.

Best Attributes

Agility (15), Natural Fitness (15), Handling (14)

Player Value


Rivero is a 25-year-old goalkeeper who plays for Valencia in Spain. Although his stats could be more impressive, they are good enough for him to make an impact as the primary starting goalkeeper for a lower-league side.

What is most intriguing about Rivero is his meager market value. He is one of the cheapest young goalkeepers in the game, and any team can sign him at almost no cost, either as a backup, a placeholder until they find a better option, or as their main keeper, as he still has room to develop.

3 Sven Ulreich

Still, he has excellent, well-rounded stats, likely due to his experience. While Sven is not the best goalkeeper on this list, signing him up for his very low market value might be an intelligent choice, as he is still a solid player with at least two more seasons of quality shot-stopping.

2 David De Gea

Player Value


Owusu-Oduro is one of the most exciting goalkeeping prospects in Football Manager 2024. The 18-year-old plays for AZ in the Dutch League. Despite his youth, he has impressive stats across the board.

Being only 18, Oduro has a lot of room to grow and many in-game years at the top. Naturally, a player like this will cost a bit more than the other players on this list. However, his market value is still nowhere near high enough for the quality of player that he is.
