Same problem here. My team is fenerbahce and I've only one affiliate club from local. Everytime i make board request for affiliate from any other country, the club accept but they said "they failed to make a deal with any club" or "they have been unable to find a suitable club" after one month. Even i choose sometimes and they said again "they failed to make a deal with your choice's club". something like that. My reputation is four star and financial situation is rich. How can i solved that? What is wrong with my game? All the best.
