If you are offering Lucas L. to other clubs, Man City will bid 30m. I have a Lpool game where i did that.

I would say deal. his wages are massive and hes old.Sell him.
Player: Vernon Anita
Team you are managing: Newcastle
Team who are buying/selling: Liverpool
Offer: ?10.75m
Year: 2013/14
If you get rid of either Tiote or Cabaye, you must keep this guy - if you keep them however its probs a deal(?) I dont know how good he is off the top of my head tho.
Player: Davide Santon
Team you are managing: Newcastle
Team who are buying/selling: Arsenal, Tottenham
Offer: ?15.0m
Year: 2013/14
Hes a great player - but Clyne is English and younger(?), so i have to say deal.
Player: Yohan Cabaye
Team you are managing: Newcastle
Team who are buying/selling: PSG
Offer: ?30.0m
Year: 2013/14
30 mill is a ton of money and you could sign somone real good.It depends who you can attract really, id say veratti would be a good replacemnt, but see who you can sign first.
Player: Hatem Ben Arfa
Team you are managing: Newcastle
Team who are buying/selling: Man Utd

Player: Cheick Tiote
Team you are managing: Newcastle
Team who are buying/selling: Liverpool
Offer: ?3.8m + ?9.0m monthly installments
Year: 2013/14
That is not much for a great player - It depends how long it will take for the installments to come through, if 12 months, you could deal, and sign Sissoko(sp.) on a free.But its a could, not a should.

Player: Gabriel Obertan
Team you are managing: Newcastle
Team who are buying/selling: Crystal Palace
Offer: ?6.0m
Year: 2013/14
Avoid him like the plague (them mental attributes). Defo deal.
Player: Jonas Guttierez
Team you are managing: Newcastle
Team who are buying/selling: Udinese
Offer: ?5.25m
Year: 2013/14
Hes a good backup winger if you bring in gaitan and Cuenca he MIGHT be surplus to requiremnets but id keep hold of him for now.

Solid cover on the wing, i'd buy him and sell obertan. Deal.
Pls note, im not using fm at the moment and havent managed castale, so this is just from what i can remember - I may have made a horrendous mistake. I dont know anything about the two italians, sorry.

No deal. Lucas is awesome in this year's FM, just as last year. I'm playing Liverpool myself, and kept him until 2016 when he was 29 years old. I sold him to PSG for ?40m, so 22m is not a very good offer. Play him as BWM, defend or support, or DLP defend.

I agree there's a lack of good RB, which is why I didn't sell De Sciglio to City even when offered ?35m. I'd consider selling Azpilicueta for ?27m, but only if I could get a good replacement. Try to see if you can get Corchia, I got him for cheap in my game (around 5m) and now I'm being offered almost 30m for him. So to conclude: Deal if you can get a good replacement (Corchia, De Sciglio, Peruzzi or the likes), no deal if you're left without a good RB.

To me, that sounds like a deal, any day. How did you get an offer of so much for him? I didn't get an offer worth 50 Million in dollars.. Nani is not performing that well for me, so I'll probably offload him quickish too..
You have Zaha, who grows to be brilliant on the right, and Valencia. If you want to buy, get Lamela, plays good on the right, and provides cover for a lot of places.

No deal for me.
I sold him 60m in my first season in Dortmund so i would suggest you try to negotiate around that price.
Also think that he is among top 5 strikers of the game at the moment so those money are realistic ;)

Team you are managing: Tottenham
Team who are selling: Porto
Offer: 10.75M Pounds
Current Date: March 2014


I already bought Balanta and Doria, but if I buy him I "may" be able to sell Kaboul (who's 2 years older) for 20-30M maybe (current value is 15M). What do you think?

Player: Luke Shaw
Team you are managing: Tottenham
Team who are selling: Southampton
Offer: 23.5M Pounds (5M in cash+18.5M in 30 months)
Current Date: March 2014


I really need a good (and promising) left back and this guy's potential seems out of this world. I don't really like paying this much but this is the lowest I could go, they wanted 40 to 60M previously... I don't even have this much money at this moment but I'm planning on selling couple of players at the end of the season which should give me 30 to 50M, I'm also leading the league right now.


Well I was continuing to play and had to make a choice and decided to buy both of them in the end! My budget had barely sufficed. I now have only a 6m spare of salary+transfer combined, but I'm glad by the result as I said, especially with Shaw! Can't wait to see him on the pitch and his development.

Player: Christian Benteke
Season: Start of the Second Season
Team you are managing: Manchester United
Team who are selling: Aston Villa
Offer: 22.5 Million $ upfront + 5.5 Million $ over 12 months + 1.5 Million $ after 10 international appearances + 5 Million $ after 10 goals at club.


I need a good striker upfront. I like to play Rooney at AMC, with van Persie upfront. van Persie was outstanding for me in the first season getting around 30 goals. However, both Hernandez and Welbeck have been very, very disappointing for me. I have Timo Werner and Zivkovic, but they're still too young to be in the main squad. Other options I can possibly buy are Lukaku and Jese. van Persie if getting a bit injury prone now, so need a good alternate.

Finished a season where he played around 40 games, his current value is 33.5 million. Problem is I shipped off valencia to chelsea for 30 mil and zaha isnt world class yet wud probably take him another 2-3 seasons to mature. Im stumped at who to buy as replacement. Barcelona and Real madrid both offered 50 mil but barcelona was like 15 mil upfront 35 in 48 months . Real madrid 50 mil upfront. Arsenal wanted him as well but only cud offer 32.5 mil Lol
