Hey guys, I am currently in the year 2017 and I have a contract with my one of my best midfield players until 2020. I was advised to offer him an improved contract.
I cannot see any benift in doing this as he remains here until 2020. Do players perform better when given an improved contract? Is there any benefit?

i havent seen any changes in performance or morale, but i always tend to refuse if they have time left on their deal. they do get unhappy but usually once i explain that they still have time on their contract they usually shut up.

It should also help prevent transfer speculation. If a player starts getting chased by a club, or several clubs, he can become unsettled and want to move which can adversely affect his morale. Awarding him a new contract can prevent this if he is receptive to a new offer.

So to agree with the post above, I would avoid it if he has time left on his current deal unless he is getting unsettled and wants to move on. From your post, this may well be a possibility as you say he is one of your best players....

Thanks guys. I had a talk with him and asked him to just wait since there is plenty of time left and he apologised to me and dropped the subject thankfully!
