I want to sign some players that don't want to come to my team? Any advice would be really nice. Trying to sign Lukaku the team accepts 12 mil but Lukaku doesn't want any of the Santos FC.

Offer higher wages and a more important role in the team are the obvious choices. Sometimes, however, a player simply won't come to a club.

Offer higher than asked for signing on bonus. Footballers love a pay day.

Try praising the player, saying how much you admire him and how keen you are to sign him might sway him.

Praise them. Offer them the world, and hope for the best :D

I've never seen anyone successfully sign a European in South America. Paulo (PMLF) reckons it is hard coded that they won't move.

Is that ANY European? Or just a top class one?

I think the only way to do it would be to cheat and use FMRTE. Like SCIAG I have never seen anyone sign a European to a South America side.

Don't think it's possible. It is possible to sign players who "don't want to consider this offer until all possible avenues are considered" (i.e. trying to sign a player on a free from another club, but he would prefer to stay) though, by offering a big contract. For example, I offered to quintuple some player's current wages putting him on par with some of the better-paid players at his current club, and despite wanting to hold out he jumped ship.

It would be pretty silly for them to hard code something like that into the game. I mean, in 40, 50 years time ( I know not many games get that far) - South American football could be the place to go. You never know.

You could cheat. I used to do this when I was super new to the game - and admittedly very rarely now when I'm in an unsporting mood.

(Save first, in case you feel guilty or it doesn't work out)
1) Create another manager
2) Put him in charge of the club with the player you want
3) Do everything in your power to anger him and make him want to leave
-Offer him mutual termination, especially if he has many years left on his contract (He'll refuse, it'll anger him and the team)
-Transfer List and set him to not needed
-Make some U-18 scrub the team captain/vice captain
-If he has friends on the team, anger them too
4) Switch back to your real manager, offer the transfer again, advance the game
5) Accept the bid on your dummy manager
6) Negotiate the transfer to completion
7) Retire with your dummy manager


Short of that, praising over the course of many months sometimes works. Sometimes it doesn't. Their loyalty rating might be sky high, or your club's reputation isn't in line with their ambition. For players I really want and don't want to be incredibly cheap in acquiring, I shortlist them permanently, try praising them - unless it backfires - and wait for them to ever get unsettled or close to the end of contract at their club. Then I try again.

Most of the time I just try to find a similar player that will do the job for me.

If you're going to cheat you might as well use fmrte instead of going through the tedious process of adding a manager only then to influence your game by making the team you're buying from manager-less after you are done (and ruining their squad morale if you do everything mentioned). Oh and p*ssed means urinated, irritated or inebriated and is not particularly offensive, this is just a clean forum.

Any European- I tried to get an AFC Wimbledon player to sign for my side who had 10000 rep and basically couldn't have been more attractive (I was experimenting in the editor) and he wouldn't come. I think it applies for Africans and Asians too.

All fair points. I used that method before I even heard of FMRTE. Like I said though I'm generally better at the game now and obsess less over players. Still have moments of weakness, however. I also have an unsubstantiated and likely superstitious opinion that third party programs eventually corrupt my saves, so if I'm gonna cheat I often prefer using ingame means to do so, regardless of the added consequences.

With regards to the word in question though, it isn't even remotely offensive in the US. It's benign slang for angry.

The word is slightly taboo this side of the pond. Not the sort of thing you'd say in front of your mother.

I don't think it's hard coded. You might get a low-rep player to go, perhaps one that speaks Portuguese. But the Brazilian league has a low rep compared with many European leagues. Despite the talent that comes out of Brazil, it's just not an attractive proposition. Someone like Lukaku is being watched IRL by so many clubs in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A that his reputation is probably higher than his ability right now. The game reflects that, accurately in this case. The only players in Europe who really move to the Brazilian leagues are homesick Brazilians (Robinho) or those trying to regain fitness to get into the national side (Adriano).
