View Full Version : FIFA's solidarity mechanism on FM 11?

Hello, I was reading about the latest transfers on Europe, and we saw that Robinho was sold.
And Santos will get 4% of Robinho transfer, since he was formed at the club, Santos got 0,25% for each year from 12 to 15 and then 0,5% each year from 16 to 21 (Santos would get even more if he stayed till 23,when it's the last year the mechanism works)
And that happens with every international transfer. Why not implement this on FM? This would make transfers much more realistic,and it would also help small clubs forming good players.

This would make the game more realistic if it is true, however I haven't heard of this before. Not saying it's false, just not heard of it :thup:

Did Real Madrid get 1%?

No I dont think so. The way I understand it is Real Madrid would have paid Santos 1% of the fee they recieved.

Yes the system is real but its not due to hit the game for the forseeable future due to the child protection laws of knowing where every players grew up playing essentially. Hence why no players under 16 years of age should be in the game nowadays.

Plus it would be logistic nightmare to research it anyway
