Here is a list of players in Football Manager 2018 who have a tendency to become available, and who may look like a brilliant signing at a cheap price, but could wind up being a very costly mistake.

That's because each of these players has a high FM18 Injury Proneness Rating. Our recommendation is to avoid signing these players and looking for alternatives, unless you're really, really desperate.

You have been warned!
