I feel like maybe if I'd qualified for the Champions League, he wouldn't be asking for so much :(
I want BOTH :'(
But still... don't like to feel I'm being ripped off. I don't even need him - I already have Arturo Vidal and Miguel Veloso. Where's he going to fit in? But I WANT him.
like you've made a player of your dis identity on the editor and then tried to sign him
I tried to sign Vidal about 5 times but could never get a work permit for him. Work permits are the absolute bane of my FM career.
What fucked me off was when, in 2018, I took charge of a just-relegated Liverpool side. Some cunt of a predecessor had given Reina and Torres £100k + p/w contracts with 2 years to go on them despite the fact that they were too old to significantly contribute (aside from the club captain on £35 k p/w the rest of the squad were on £20k or less). So I'm under huge pressure due to the size of the club but my capacity to strengthen the squad is limited by two players who are costing me over £20 million for two years between 'em without actually playing. And the bastards wouldn't accept mutual terminations.
He's only 20, so he'll no doubt become amazing. Oh man, I keep changing my mind. Midfield... that's where you win and lose matches. How can I fit Modric, Vidal, Veloso, Camacho, Bentley and Gio all into the same team though? The whole of that midfield is really young, whereas Ledley King and Jonathan Woodgate surely don't have much longer in them, which will leave me with only Thiago Silva and Vedran Corluka (plus Dorian Dervite, but I'm not holding out much hope for him).
Basically, current midfield: Bentley, Modric, Vidal, Veloso, Gio
Current defence: Thiago Silva, King, Woodgate, Corluka
Midfield = young
Defence = aging
This is possibly the worst piece of transfer business ever :(
Sitting there, eating up wages... He'd better end up being fucking amazing.
