if they're 2 of the best players on the game, why did you sell them?

What exactly do you want to know, your title and the question you have asked have nothing to do with each other.

Yes, I'm a bit confused by what the buy back clauses have to do with anything.

This might be a really obvious question, but do you have decent scouts?

It's nothing to do with having decent scouts, this happens to me every time I scout a player who I've sold, using Ian Broomfield who has 20 judging ability and 20 judging potential, so this is clearly a bug.

I dont recall his player ratings being that good.

Get a report card from another scout, get a report after a scout watches him for 3 matches.

At the end of the day you sold them, why are you scouting them again. Perhaps its taking into account they would want high wages

Isn't this because they have only moved recently, and so would be unwilling to move again, therefore they would not be a worthwhile signing (in the same way it says not a worthwhile signing for players that won't get a work permit).

It also says that they would only be decent players, and in any case, that particular section doesn't take into account avaliblity, only ability.

Actually, I kinda had the same problem.

I was playing as At.Madrid, and in the 2nd season, Chelsea bidded 10m for Albiol, which was his min fee release clause(I forgot to alter it in the contract). He was a very good player for me, so I kept him on my shortlist then the following January in the Player Search Filter, I saw he wouldn't be an unrealistic target, so I got a scout report by Conti(JPA 20 JPP19), and he said that Albiol was at best a decent Liga BBVA defender.

WTF?!
