The best right-backs to sign on Football Manager 2024

Few positions are more important to the modern game than a right-back.

Whether you want an auxilliary attacker, an out-and-out defender or somebody to test out the new inverted full-back role, Football Manager 2024 has plenty of options for you to sign regardless of how much money you’re working with.

Here are 90min‘s recommendations for right-backs to sign with any budget.

Matteo Darmian

You can always rely on Inter in search of a bargain. In defence, Darmian is yours for just £3.9m, and he’s perfect for any mid-table club wanting a starter or even a top side looking for cover across the entire back line.

Facundo Mura
Racing Club

24-year-old Mura will set you back £5m. He’s a defensive-minded player who’s a natural in the new inverted full-back role.

Valentin Gendrey

£3.3m feels like a bit of a steal for Gendrey, whose stats page is full of 14s. He might not be a superstar but he looks as reliable as anybody.

Martin Garay

Another well-rounded player, Garay is perfect for any team looking for somebody to come in and shore up the right-back spot. He’s yours for just £1.7m.

Thomas Meunier
Borussia Dortmund

You’ll need some hefty wages to land Meunier, as well as some patience while he recovers from injury, but his £1.2m asking price should make it all worth it.

Alidu Seidu

A centre-back by trade, Seidu is comfortable out on the right and another who would fit perfectly in the inverted full-back role. £4.5m should land him.

Jose Hurtado

Rounding us off here is Hurtado. The 21-year-old, who will cost £3.5m, looks really solid and brings some great re-sell value as well.

Arnau Martinez

One of the emerging stars of Spanish football, Martinez’s release clause is just £8.5m, which is a steal considering he can shine for your team for the next decade.

Pablo Maffeo

Maffeo comes with a £21.5m release clause but just £9.25m should convince Mallorca to sell. He’s a great athlete who defends well and can do a job in attack.

Nahuel Molina
A. Madrid

So attack-minded that he can actually play up in midfield, Molina is one of the most well-rounded players you’ll find and he can be yours for £16.5m.

Elseid Hysaj

Still only 29, Hysaj is a natural on both sides of defence and offers amazing value for his £9.5m price tag.

Oscar Mingueza

Former Barcelona man Mingueza can shine on the right or in the centre of defence. He’s another who is defence-first, with 15 tackling his stand-out stat.

Alistair Johnston

For £11m, you can land Canada international Johnston from Celtic. While he may not have any stats that leap off the page, his well-rounded style of play should make him easy to work with.

Kyle Walker-Peters

Walker-Peters is far too good to be playing in the Championship. For £19.5m, get yourself a top player who can help you out on both sides.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka
Manchester UFC

United will sell you Wan-Bissaka for a cool £31m, which feels like a bargain for somebody with a whopping 20 tackling.

Juan Foyth

Foyth’s £36m release clause is worth considering as he’s among the best right-backs (and centre-backs) available. His mental stats are superb, as is his 16 tackling.

AS Monaco

Vanderson is great now, with 15 crossing and 14 dribbling already making him a lot of fun, but the 22-year-old comes with some high potential that should justify the £22m spend to get him.

Dani Carvajal
R. Madrid

You’ll need a big wage budget to convince Carvajal to leave Madrid but, with an asking price of just £15m, that shouldn’t be a problem. After all, he’s one of the best defenders in the world.

Benjamin Henrichs
RB Leipzig

Elite on both sides of the pitch, Henrichs is a great buy at £22m. He’s another who does his best work in defence, with 15 tackling and 14 passing making him a great fit for any team.

Sacha Boey

22-year-old Boey is a star of the future, but he already boasts 16 tackling and 14 marking. Thanks to his high work rate and determination, he’ll blossom into a star in no time. £25m will do the job.
