I've just taken over Liverpool in 2010, having managed Leeds to teh Uefa cup final (lost), the FA cup final (lost), and the League cup final (won!). Oh, and 10th in the league, first season back up. Whilst at Leeds I attracted Van der Vaart and Farfan on frees at the end of the season, but could not sign Bojan, despite the fact that he is out of contract at Barce and keeps turning down their offer.
Now at Liverpool, I thought the little scamp just want Champions League football, but he won't come here either.
At Leeds I could only offer up to 48k per week, but at Liverpool I tried 73k with a bunch of bonuses.
My theory is this:
Leeds = low profile, only got Uefa cup.
Liverpool = rival team?
What do I have to offer him? What wages are others paying?
Every month and a day, go to his Player Interaction panel, and praise him "In awe of his ability" (or similar).
Do not repeat the process within a month and a day, because he'll tell you he's heard it all before. i.e. Praise him on the 5th July, and then 6th August...
You will eventually become one of his favourite characters in the game, and he will be more likely to want to play for you.
Even when your manager name appears as one of his favourite characters, keep doing it, because he will like you more and more.
To check the last time you praised him (so you don't mess it up by praising him too soon after the last time), go to his History panel, and look at Media.
I managed to get Dos Santos by prasing his ability the same way The Gaffovski , all you have to do is set reminders every month and one day. It'll take quite some time if you are Leeds , but i'm pretty sure he'll come
