The original Agents pack returns for FM2020! Debuting on Steam with the rest of the packs, which can be used in any combination. Fully compatible with official patch 20.3. Data Packs (Steam Collection) link HERE! Agents pack link HERE! Adds about 1.000 real life agents and their connections to 13.000+ players/clients, including every relevant relationship status as well. It has been included in my Data Packs since FM2010 and it's been updated constantly every year, many times through each season. additional info (kinda outdated now)
I'm a LLM and following our promotion last season, my LB recently gained his first international cap. This appears to have prompted his agent to ask for a new contract on a significantly higher wage (+50%). The player has 6 months left on his contract; IIRC I gave the player a new contract towards the back end of last season shortly before promotion was confirmed, and he's on quite a modest salary for this level. As a LLM, I tend only to give out longer term deals for key players or leading young prospects. I had the option to suggest to the player that he should sack his agent rather than offer a new deal. As I'm on his preferred staff I went for this option and he promptly fired his agent and got another. Both agents have in their description 'friendly towards me', so it seems I saved myself a wage hike for 6 months at least by doing this. Are there any hidden negatives to doing this I haven't thought of however? The original agent is still friendly (so presumably hasn't got wind of my role in his sacking lol) so I don't appear to have obviously upset him. I suppose if I'd given him a new contract (not unreasonable in fairness given he's been at the club a while and is one of my favourite players, though my coaches don't rate him highly) his agent may have gone from friendly to being bezzie mates, giving me better terms on signing his clients. Anyone have any insight they can share here?
The growing prominence of dreaded football agent . . . An option to dispatch a football agent to sign/sell player x. For example, managing Arsenal. You've tried to sell Ozil, both by offering him to clubs yourself and/or via the DoF. Nope, no takers. You employ an agent to act as an intermediary to sell the player. If successful, the 'downside' would be the agent secures a tasty percentage of the transfer fee. This could also feed into other aspects for the game. For example, when a team is looking to sign one of your players via an agent - football agent x has been seen with player y. Also feeding into press conferences.
