Does this happen in FM?

Think of Gareth Barry, he was going to do it when with Villa and Mario Zarate did it before joining for Lazio. Never seen it being mentioned in the game.

No it doesn't.

defo not. player leaving on a bosman is the closest to this.

I seem to remember it being discussed at the time and it wasn't put into the game because it wasn't entirely clear how it would work out in real life. A bit like the 'unprotected contracts' that appeared in an older version, but then got removed.

It's so rare that it's not really worth putting in the game.

Yeah it's a bit too rare to include. I think it's covered in a way when a player really wants to leave, then he will leave by either bosman or requesting a transfer. Could get complicated as who's to know how much the player actually has and spends?

Call me pedantic, but it should be their contract...

I had a guy ask to be paid the remainder of his contract while he joined another club if that helps...
