Finances - overall balance vs transfer budget

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Started a new season with Man Utd... I edited the transfer budget to 100 million (from 30) but forgot to increase the overall balance in the Editor.  

In the first transfer window I spent most of the budget...   I'm now in the January transfer window and I have a transfer budget of £114 million (after selling players and doing well in the league)....however my overall balance is down to £125 million.  If I spend all of my transfer budget and after sign on fees etc...I'll be left with just £5 million in my overall balance.  

I presume that's bad news even for a club like United...would I suffer under FFP / struggle to get to the end of the season etc?  (I'm worried by increasing the transfer budget in the editor by £70 million but not the overall balance that I've screwed up the finances and so I shouldn't spend this money...?)

Thanks for any help.

The second half of the season is when prize and TV money will hit in, so it may not be too bad.  Remember that a transfer budget is just a budget and there is no requirement for it to be spent and being prudent will endear you to the board as long as you have some success on the pitch.
