Hi guys

In my 3rd season as Newcastle currently 1st and having great success with the 4-4-2 devasto tactic :)

Heres a screenie of my 1st team having trouble choosing between lukaku and kadlec but favouring lukaku at the mo. (any tips on selections appreciated)



Ok my basic problem,

Lukaku is playing out of his skin, Man city signed him for 8million, his contract expires in 4months time and keeps snubbing city, I have him on loan so i cannot approach to sign, Should i cancel the loan and offer?

The main thing stopping is me that Dzeko, to my complete suprise rejected a new contract from his club, i approached to sign, and im singing him on a free xD he is coming in June 2013.

What would you guys do?

Thanks

Alan

Go for Lukaku.

He is younger and you know exactly how to play him. He'll be free as well, so hold out to sign him. Keep praising him and playing him and he'll love Newcastle more. ;)

I'm not sure mate. It's a strange one. The only thing stopping him signing a new contract at City might be the fact that he's not at the club. If you cancel his loan he might re sign for City. I'd advise keeping him and playing him. Then when he goes back his contract will be up and you might still be able to get him

If you cancel your loan and he doesn't sign for you, you'd lose him for good. Keep him on loan, if you can get him, good, if you don't, you still have Kadlec (Who is playing well according to your screenie) AND you're getting Dzeko!

you can not sign because his plays for another English club, you have to wait until the last month of his contract and then you can sign him

Interesting so your saying i cant even approach him until May 2013 (1month before it expires)

Also when the time comes will i be able to approach him even with him on loan to me?

if it is a foreign based player you have to wait for the last from six months of the contract

if they are playing in the same country as you, you have to wait till the last month of the contract

i pretty sure come may you can offer him a contract even tho you have him on loan

unlucky mate same thing is happening with me really every time i try to buy any player man city put a bid in for them and they give stupid wages which i refuse to pay. so far ive missed out on sakho, santon, and hazard. they are all on about 100k which is far to much i think
