Cheapest minimum fee release clauses in FM22

This list will feature a subset of players at all position groups to give FM22 players multiple options. Remember, these are sorted as pertaining to affordability, and teams with larger transfer budgets won't necessarily need to look through the bargain bin.


  • Jarosław Jach
    • Position: CB
    • Age: 26
    • Club: Crystal Palace
    • Release clause: £550k
  • Lautaro Giannetti

    • Position: CB
    • Age: 26
    • Club: Vélez
    • Release clause: £7.25M
  • Francisco Ortega
    • Position: LB
    • Age: 21
    • Club: Vélez
    • Release clause: £8.5M
  • Fabricio Bustos
    • Position: RB
    • Age: 24
    • Club: Independiente
    • Release clause: £14.5M

Jach is quite possibly the cheapest option in FM22 in terms of release clause defenders. He's still only 26 years old so he'll do fine to fill the void in your defence early doors. The fullbacks are a tad more expensive, but their youth suggests future sell-on value and you can certainly get a tune out of them in the meantime.


  • Beram Kayal
    • Position: CM
    • Age: 32
    • Club: Bnei Sakhnin
    • Release clause: £110k
  • Hidemasa Morita
    • Position: CM
    • Age: 26
    • Club: Santa Clara
    • Release clause: £8.5M
  • Andres Guardado
    • Position: CM
    • Age: 35
    • Club: Real Betis
    • Release clause: £12.75M
  • Nicolas de la Cruz
    • Position: CM
    • Age: 24
    • Club: River Plate
    • Release clause: £15.75M

More ultra-affordable options, your club is likely to be Guardado or Kayal's final stop, but that's fine considering their low release prices. For more youthful options, look to Morita or Nicolas de la Cruz to run the middle of your park until you can upgrade the position further in a future transfer window.


  • Radamel Falcao
    • Position: ST
    • Age: 35
    • Club: Rayo Vallecano
    • Release Clause: £5.75M
  • Luca Orellano
    • Position: RW
    • Age: 20
    • Club: Vélez
    • Release Clause: £6.75M
  • Facundo Torres
    • Position: LW
    • Age: 20
    • Club: Peñarol
    • Release Clause: £20M
  • Alejandro Gómez
    • Position: ST
    • Age: 32
    • Club: Sevilla
    • Release Clause: £17M

Some attacking options available to be bought out of their current contracts at rather low prices, Falcao and Gómez are seasoned and proven goalscorers to lead your line. The young wingers are affordable as well, particularly Orellano, and at only 20 years old they should raise their respective price tags over time.
