Ever caught sight of a greyed out player on another team that just makes you wish you could buy them? Just now I was playing a preason friendly against Xerez, trying out a new tactic when they brought on someone called Crespo. Wondering if they'd bought Hernan, I checked him out and found this:

For a second I thought I'd struck gold, until I realised that I couldn't buy him, dammit.

Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience?

Take over as manager at Xerez, offer him a contract with a low minimum release, then make a trasfer bid that they are forced to accept. ;)

Bit of bending the rules there.. but it would be the only way to have any chance of getting him so I guess it could be acceptable.

Although, I thought all greyed out players disappeared once the club had a 'Human' manager..

Could try modifying his current contract to have the low min release clause with FMRTE

I think one of the reasons it's a gray player is that the league isn't active so it wouldn't be possible to tkae over Xerez.

Greyed out players are generated by the game at the start of each season.

I'm not sure you understad. He's a greyed out player, similar to the ones found in the German squad if you don't delete the fake.inc files. He's made up by the game to fill squad space when a team has no or few players.

He won't have a current contract though.

Yeah, don't have Spanish leagues loaded, irritatingly.

Try to see if you can edit his contract with FMRTE as Cal. suggested, it is worth a shot at least.
