A member of my backroom staff keeps telling the media of my bid's for players meaning that everyone else is interested in them!

I've worked out it only seems to be players who are in Spain. Is there any way of finding out who it is for certain?

Don't think so but it's never happened to me so I'm not sure.

one of your scouts, maybe a spanish one, sack your whole backroom staff just to be sure

Bit harsh and extreme isn't it?

It might not be someone from your team, but someone associated with the player being bid on/club receving bid.

lol, think his name suggests that he may have just been joking on this one! I've had this a couple of times but I do not know how to stop it I am afraid, I suppose it could have something to do with staff loyalty but I am not sure...

The player who I bid for was on the transfer list and 'didn't want to leave the club'. Therefore, I don't think it was him. And the second player was just a youth regen who was very good and I've managed to get him on a free.

I suspect it's either my Spanish scout, or a new Spanish coach that I hired 5 months ago!

has happened to me a couple of times where my assistant has warned me that the bid has been leaked only seems to happen when i'm bidding in italy for me, kinda annoying as it has happened sometimes when i'm trying to sign a promising youngster

Does it actually happen in the game that members of your staff leak things like this?

You have to inform a club when approach one of thier players. They could have said something

It happens about 70% of the time for me.

I like the feature, but when it's happened to me it's never actually been followed up on in the press conferences.
It also really annoys me when it happens every time you bid for the same player
