*Excuse the title :D Lyrics from Snoop in Old School

This little tip has earned me millions upon millions over the years on FM13. Signings people on Bosman frees and selling them 6-12 months later for £££s.

This example is for Europe.

Step One:

On the contract expiry date when you can approach players (for Europe it is December 29th) scout all players over £1,000,000 and under 27 years of age (you can change these totals if you are a smaller club)

Step Two:

Offer contracts to all players of 3* recommendation (2.5* if a lower club)

- If the player is top quality, a Messi/Ronaldo type then offer anything and keep him for obvious reasons. In this case sell your current player in that position.
- If the player is no better than your first choice then offer him a contract slightly above what he wants with good appearance money, goal bonus and team of the year bonus. (he'll not play enough games to get many of these)
[HR][/HR]

Step Three:

Keep him on the bench, sub him on as often as possible, play him cup games etc. Then sell him end of season! I always offer at 100% value. Value of £10m, offer at £20m. (See second post for further tip)

[HR][/HR]

Step Four:

Reap the profits.

Tip 2...

Another example:

View attachment 369453

Signed on a Bosman.

He wanted £30,000 a week.

I offered more plus high appearance and goal bonuses (£39,000 each) and team of the year bonus (£750,000).

Used him as a sub and started games after I had won the league.

THE TIP:

Offered him for £15m. (in this example, adjust fees accordingly)

Several clubs bid £15m.

1. Accept one bid and reject the rest.

2. Then adjust his transfer value by £1m/£2m

3. Wait a few days.

4. The clubs previously rejected will return with better bids.

5. Accept one of the better bids, reject the rest.

6. Repeat step 2.

7. Repeat step 3.

8 Step 4 should happen again.

9. Repeat step 5 and repeat until clubs stopping bidding.

I have done this loads and it always adds lots onto transfer values. Even works with lower clubs. Seen bids of £150,000 quickly rise to near £1m; bids of £15m can rise to £20m (see screenshot above). With FC United this funded a new stadium after two seasons in the Premier League.

Out of interest, what is the most profit you have made on a player doing this?

Mine is £32m in 2015, got Honda on a free then sold him a year later (After he had scored the winner in extra time in the FA Cup final against Spurs! :D (I was Arsenal) to PSG.

£46m was biggest. A fella called Alain Toma. Signed him on a free for Altrincham and sold him to Barcelona after a year

Okay so i found balotelli age 27

View attachment 369808

I managed to get him to accept this contract offer should i do this?
I wouldn't, £86k plus those bonuses are way too much, and it'll prevent you offering contracts to better players.

Bare in mind he is a striker, so is more likely to score goals, and an international in a World Cup year, so before you sell him you could of had to pay out a couple of million in bonuses alone before the season ends, and the fact no one has already agreed a contract with him that late in january suggests that you will struggle to find a buyer for him...

Yea it is usually best to only sign players who have several clubs after him when his contract enters the final 6 months (Dec 29th). That way they will most likely return for him when you go to sell him 6-12months later

But most of your examples showed them playing more than a few games
The examples that show players there for more than 6 months were all top quality players who I kept and were signed with basic contracts. Higher appearance fees, goal bonuses and team of the year contracts were offered to players I am planning to sell as soon as possible

I have an Ajax save where I usually just rely on youth team players so I will run an experiment on that. Signing players on bosmans and selling them quickly.

Players arriving on a Bosman:

These four were given slightly above normal bonuses (It increases your chances of signing him as better clubs than Ajax were after them). I'll post back in a years time when I plan to sell them all.

The system works very well. Have a Man Utd save in 2022 with around £900m in the bank (screenshot later)

How the f*ck do you get to 2091 playing from the start?! :O :p
Done the pentagon challenge first, then started the champions league challenge which I will finish later. Used instant result for last few seasons, same results but speeds the game up a lot
