Some of the clubs mentioned below will challenge your skills as a manager, as they contain tons of potential to dominate various leagues once they are rebuilt.

Sega and Sports Interactive’s latest Football Manager (FM) game is very close to hitting the virtual shelves and numerous fans are eagerly waiting to get their hands on the various versions of the title. This newest entry boasts to be the most complete edition of FM yet, thanks to a slew of quality-of-life updates and the addition of three new game modes.

Although the game brings new features to the table, players who are familiar with the title will begin their managerial journeys by building lower-league clubs from the ground up, as they have done in the previous entries. However, if you wish to have a prosperous career and climb to the top of the leaderboards, here are the best teams you can manage in FM 2024.

Best Teams to Manage in Football Manager 2024

Here are the top 5 teams with managerial roles to fill. Note that they are not ranked in any particular order.

Union Berlin

For the 23/24 season, this German club looks like a powerhouse, beating out some of the best top clubs, and anticipated by many to be one of the best contenders for the German Bundesliga title. Although the team does not have a high level of funding, the current roster’s strategic prowess can certainly come in handy.

Despite this, they have successfully managed to secure a spot in the Champions League for the first time. Players who are looking forward to playing a high-stakes game of Football Manager 2024 must definitely take them up.

Manchester United

It is no surprise that the Red Devils have made their way onto our list. Although their performance has been lacking the last few seasons, they seem to be a viable option if you are considering a team with a high transfer budget and excellent training facilities. They still have a commendable roster with the likes of Andre Onana, Marcus Rashford, and more.

AFC Ajax

If you still wish to experience the challenge of rebuilding projects similar to Man United, look no further than this Dutch club. After managing a successful run last season with four titles, their pace was stunted as they now have to make rounds in the Europa League.

Re-establishing the team would mean duking it out with Feyenoord, PSV, and AZ, which certainly seems possible as they are still a potent team with numerous international players.

Newcastle United

This would be the most ideal team if you are a beginner still trying to learn the ropes of FM 2024. Although they fall short when compared to teams like Real Madrid, they still have a commendable transfer budget to bring in England’s top players to complement potent players like Sandro Tonali, Alexander Isak, Lewis Hall, and more.

Inter Miami

After signing Messi, who just won his 8th Ballon d’Or, Inter Miami has made its way to being the most notable club to play in the Major Leagues. Along with other Barcelona players like Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, players can step into the managerial role as they are still provided with a reasonable transfer budget, allowing you to capitalize on their newfound popularity.

Those are pretty much all the best teams to manage in Football Manager 2024. Also, check out our guides on EA Sports FC 24 if you are more interested in stepping into the player’s shoes.
