    Default Whats your highest ever transfer budget in 1 season??

    Just wondered how high the transfer budget can be in one season? And what you have all been allowed to spend?

    Im in 2017 in my game, in charge of CSKA Moscow and mine has been £18million. Before CSKA i was Leeds boss and my first season in the Premier League with them i had £18millon too. But a few seasons back, Man City signed Pato from AC Millan for £65million!!

    Whats your highest transfer budget?

    In 2015 with Man Utd in the January window I spent £266 Million. Pretty much been collecting money from player sales first 5 years in the game. Had a whooping £320 Million Budget.

    Rushden and Diamonds in 2018/2019 I was given £38m . Spent £37.5m and sold £65m.

    For those interested the highest transfer on my game so far is Aaron Ramsey from Lyon (who got him on a free) to Real Madrid for £74m at the beginning of the season.

    Really? I'd be bored rigid with a budget like that. I think I'd actually change clubs to get away from it...

    When trying to re-build and start a new squad, £320 Million won't really go that far when your trying to sign 20 decent players then maybe 10 decent young/youth players to bring through the reserves and introduce for the 1st team slowly. That £320 Million comes from clearing out pretty much the entire team, leaving only the likes of Rooney and Macheda.

    £150 million. Though that was later supplemented by over 100 million raised in player sales.

    It's because of the £80m sale of Ronaldo in the summer.

    No you dont. You only get that much if you pay for players in installments or sell a load of players. Or are you transfering your wage budget over? Its something like £55m for title challenge and £63m for winner.

    What has buying players got to do with your transfer bugdet? The thread is about "budget" not expediture.

    And yes, it's £74m for title winner and then if you edit the transfer/wage budget, you get over £100m, which is lhinchliffe's transfer budget and that is the highest he has ever had, which is what this thread is about.

    I thought it was the highest option available to you. So for Man Utd it would be for title winner which is not £102m.

    If you want to slide over your wage budget and then blow £102m on players then good for you, but you'll be in even more serious debt very very soon due to the high wage bill.

    Ok, but £102m is the highest option available to you/me, because...it's available.

    Plus if you increase the transfer budget, it automatically decreases the wage budget, so the wages won't be a problem ;)

    I'm 7 seasons in and I'm doing fine.

    If your spending £1.2m in wages and you have a wage budget at £1.4m and transfer the difference into your transfer budget, it will put your transfer budget up but your wage budget will come down to what you are spending, £1.2m.

    If you then start to sign players, you will still be allowed to offer quite a few players contracts for high amounts. This could then push your total was expenditure to about £1.5m but your budget is only £1.2m so you will be losing £300k every week. Not really a good plan when you already lose millions each month as it is due to repayments.

    Indeed. This is exactly how it is done to get a budget of that size in the first season. I've found in previous games that if you spend as much money as you can within the first three seasons you are more likely to get a board take over and bye bye the debts!

    £300k per week over doesn't mean you are losing that much. Plus 2nd season the wage budget goes up anyway, so you will be within it. Although you do have to be successful to keep making money, but if you are a decent manager it's no problem

    Its not really that hard to get a massive transfer budget. I usually make profits every year in the transfer window by buying players cheaper than the value i sold my players for. And high sponsorship really does help too along with a big stadium.

    Just out of curiosity - did you offer out De Rossi for 100m or does the AI develop an interest in him itself while he's set to not for sale?

    Problem is that the higher your transfer budget is, the more difficult it is to buy a player for the same price you'd have in previous seasons. It seems that the game has some inflationary mechanism. So, if I was able to buy 4 players with 10M in season 1, this money can only get me 3 players in season 2. Not fair, considering that computer-run clubs keep buying players for the same regular price...

    how do you get an insane offer for a top player?

    do you keep rejecting and state that the player is not for sale until they make an insane offer OR do you offer the player at the insane amount if they make a decent offer???

    Back in FM 07 days, I've had a £350M budget, can't remember what season though, i think it was the 6th or 7th.
    In FM10 I have now 190M Euro with A.C Milan, in 2019.

    I have had 29 million with FC Groningen in my sixth season, after winning the league. Spent 2 million of it and then got sacked after losing 4 matches out of seven at the start of the next season. Annoying!!!

    personally i dont like massive budgets. they seem great but you end up signing players you dont need and end up with too many players and disrupt the harmony and rythm of the team, then get frustrated when these players dont play well

    £65million, Cagliari, season 2015/2016 - Going to jump ship at the end of this season though - too much of a budget takes the fun out the game for me.
