Do I need subjunctive here:

Es el mejor hombre que conozco/conozca (he conocido/haya conocido).

Thank you.

    When using the present simple, I would use the indicative instinctively. In fact, it took me a few seconds to realize that the subjunctive was also possible. I said your sentence in my mind a few times and it sounded completely wrong at the beginning.

    However, the subjuntive doesn't sound so bad when using the present perfect. It sounds pretty natural :)
