Right, I dont really need DC I guess, but I want to strengthen it especially since my 10.5M pound bid for Otamendi and 5M pound bid for Zapata has been accepted. I mean, it's a bargain (for Zapata anyway). But If I want to buy those 2, I have to sell either Agger or Skrtel. Even if I sell them, I dont think it can balance the budget as I only get like 20% of the transfer fee :mad:.

So my choice is really between Zapata and Otamendi. Otamendi is Liga Zon Sagres Central Defender of The Year, a year younger and has better stats than Zapata. So tempting. And I want to get him for ages in FM10 and never did coz his club want 20Mpound. The problem is, he is twice the fee of Zapata and I need to spend my 40M budget wisely on AML, AMR, Backup ST, Backup GK. Note that I need first team players at AML and AMR so it will be costly. Might have to spend 15M on AML, 10.5M on AMR, 10M on ST, 5M on GK. I dont have the time to think. Both of transfers just need confirmation now and I did stalled it for a week. Please help. And sorry for the double topic, but this is different matters.

How about for Liverpool? If more recommend him, then I will buy him.

£10.5M for Otamendi?
You are in heaven son. Cost me £21M from Porto in my LFC save. Sell Agger (class but INJ prone). Skrtel kept on making too many errors.

I sold them 2 and replaced with Sakho and Otamendi as my 2 CB. Gone 9 games without conceding including 2-0 over Utd and 0-6 AT Juventus.

I bought both Otamendi and Zapata lol since I got Van Nistroy on free transfer..that means I dont have to spend big on a striker. I'll worry about replacing Van Nistroy who's in 1 year contract next season...oO) I'll sell the the defenders next season, when I can identify who's better and of course it also depends on who's unhappy first :p

Skrtel is definitely the worst defender in that list, however Otamendi will be the most difficult to sign as he's just signed for Porto.
