The interaction with transferred players is virtually nonexistent. When parting with players, I'd like to be able to explain my motives. My answers should have a certain PR effect on the transferred player and potentially also on his former/future team mates. E.g. if I sell a troublemaker, I would like to give him a parting salute â€“ one which might affect his new team mates as well. Conversely, if my legendary captain decides to leave, I would like to hail his efforts, perhaps bringing doubt or a feeling of purpose to your remaining squad.
How to implement: This new feature MUST NOT lead a new flurry of mindless media interaction. To avoid this, the below options could be integrated on the final 'transfer acceptance' mail item, possibly in the form of a drop menu activated by the player by his own volition.
