I'm getting really tired of the state of transfer negotiations in the game. Time and time again I'm bidding many, many times the "value" of the player and getting flat rejection. For instance, I just tried to sign a teenage player currently in an under 19s squad, getting paid £45pw and valued at £160k. I got up to an offer of £7m (not that I would have paid it) and still wasn't even offered a negotiated option. This happens even with players designated as "decent" or "rotation", and even small clubs that could never turn down this kind of money refuse to even negotiate. It turns what used to be one of the more pleasurable aspects of the game into an utter chore. It seems to me there is something wrong with either the way public player values are calculated or with the way AI clubs do business.
