I know the issues with getting AI teams to buy your players are well documented, but this is a slightly different issue.
I am in season 4 of a network game. I own a player that my co-human manager would like to buy.
The player has both my friend, and my friend's club listed under 'favourites'. My friend's club is of a higher reputation than my own.
I have twice accepted an offer for the player, but both times the player has refused to even discuss terms with the other human controlled-club.
My hunch is there is some 'anti-cheat' bias built in to the game, to prevent players creating other human players just to buy their unwanted players at high prices; previously a similar thing occurred, and the player would only discuss terms on the third occasion when AI teams had also had bids accepted.
Can humans easily buy/sell players between themselves?

I can't say I've ever noticed any bias, and I had a network where we frequently transferred players to each other (should add wasn't 'cheating', merely we both had the type of the players the other guy needed for their system...)
I even have two teams on my current save, I haven't had any issues with this personally. If you really want to sell, transfer listing the player might encourage him to want to sign for your friends team.
