Top 3 FM 21 players with expiring contracts


Givanildo Vieira de Souza, better known as Hulk, is a Brazilian footballer, currently playing for Shanghai SIPG.

He can play on the wing or as a central striker and we are sure you will remember him from Porto, his European launching pad.

His nickname is due to his resemblance to American actor Lou Ferrigno, who played the character of the Hulk in the 1970s television series of the same name.


Alex Texiera

Alex Teixeira Santos is a Brazilian footballer, midfielder or striker for Jiangsu Suning.

Still young and physically fit, the Brazilian talent, born in 1990, could be a good choice for a potential capital gain


Yeferson Julio Soteldo Martínez

Yeferson Julio Soteldo Martínez is a Venezuelan footballer, midfielder for Santos and the Venezuelan national team. His name is not too well known in European football, but according to the Football Manager database he is a good player with good statistics.

Very young because he was born in 1997, he could prove to be a big hit. His goals and plays don’t lie.
