This player's contract was running out on July 1st 2021. In January I signed him on Bosman ruling, and he was supposed to join my club this summer.

Now somehow his contract has changed so that it is running out five years from now.

This seems like an extension to his old contract rather than a new one. If it was a new one he should be getting a lot more money (he scored 26 goals in 28 games for Valencia last season, and earned his first caps for the Spanish national team).

Hi Whoismilan.

Do you, by any chance, have a save from before you offered the contract to Ortega that you could send us?

Here is a link showing you how to send us your save http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/254587-iPhone-How-to-extract-and-send-us-your-save-game-file

Also, did you eventually end up signing the player or does he remain at Valencia?

No unfortunately I do not have a save from before I offered him the contract, I only have the current save I'm playing (and whatever auto-save there is).

I'm still in fall 2021, so he is still at Valencia until his newly extended contract runs out in 2026 I suppose. It does seem as though he is going to join us runs out though, I can for example not make an offer to buy him.

I might just have worked out the cause of this - its a very rare 'race' condition; I've checked it in for QA to mess around with and try to break now; apologies it hadn't been found before but as I mentioned its a fairly rare situation to occur.

Sadly I think i have come across a very similar problem to this. I've got Forest Green promoted to League 1 after two seasons on the iPhone.

With no money, Bosman signings were absolutely crucial to me and I managed to snap up CM Mario Goetze and a RB called Alberto Valdes from Villareal at the end of their contracts.

All looked good and their 'personal status' said they were looking forward to the move and their 'offers' screen said they were joining Forest Green at the end of their contract.

So the season ended and was really looking forward to seeing those two come in to my squad.

The window opened and the only messages i got was 'the transfer of Goetze/Valdes is set to be completed'. There was no option to actually complete the deals. I have been getting the
same messages every week now. I waited until the end of August to see what happened on the close of the window and still i have not been able to sign them.

There status just appears to be in limbo. I can't complete the deal. I can't offer them a new one and i keep getting the same messages twice a week now!

I've also agreed another Bosman for a kid for Madrid (Delgado) due in January and I am a bit worried that deal won't complete either.

To make matters worse I was waiting for the two deals to be concluded to shape my squad. As they haven't completed and the window has closed my squad is down to the bare bones.
