Would signing RVP from Arsenal to Utd be possible on FM 12?


Recommended Posts

Or would something like that just be coded to be impossible? I'd imagine so? If that's the case, maybe things like that need looking at for next year? Ok, i'm not expecting you to be able to sign Steve Gerrard for Everton every save you have, but sometimes... just sometimes, stuff like this happens.

Nothing is coded to prevent a transfer from happening but due to various factors some players are very difficult to sign.

If you take RVP as an example you need to consider:

A) The league he plays in - The BPL is probably the top rated league in your save (depending how far in you are), players want to play in the highest rated league they can so moving to Spain, Germany, France or Italy is possible but overall its a small negative towards the transfer happening.

B) The team he plays for - Much the same as the league, Arsenal are a highly rated side but players will look to move to higher rated teams.

C) League rivalry - Movements between top clubs in the same country are less likely in FM than real life as league rivalry plays a role.

D) His happiness - If he is happy & under contract at Arsenal he is unlikely to move, players need a reason to move on.

So taking those factors into account and you are looking at maybe 5-10 clubs that have a realistic chance of signing him - Real, Barcelona, Bayern & Milan are the most likely IMO but a couple of other Italian/German/French clubs may have a chance + Man Utd/Man City/Chelsea.

As his contract runs down the chances of a transfer happening increase as does his situation at Arsenal changing (Him becoming unhappy).

Arsenal in-game don't have a salary cap, making it harder for the players to get unsettled due to contract demands. While it would be possible, I feel it would be very difficult in the first few seasons for him to even enter negotiations, unless Arsenal under performed.

It wont be coded to be impossible but it will be difficult, if the current real life situation was replicated, ie player unhappy, manager willing to sell, replacements already bought then yes you would be able to sign him, but you would prob pay through the teeth for him.

Yeah this. United managers will probably see it with Rooney, he usually gets the hump and wants to move regardless in a few years, for me I flogged him to Arsenal heh.

The other way though? Like someone else said, expect to put in a bid of 100+million.
