just started a fake players game with atletico, signed an argentinian striker for £7.5M. he was 21 iirc.

does that count? icon_wink.gif

all my regen signings to date have been free transfers or poached under 17s, so i can't say more than £250k compensation.

Yeah most of my regens are free transfers (Bosmans I guess)but my first one I think was a Spanish striker named De Luque for 1 and a bit million for Barcelona.

70K for an 18 year old Icelandic striker in the first season who's turned out to be a bit rubbish.

£18.5 million for the newest Highest rated rated u21 striker England had to offer.

Am waiting for my previous effort to leave Liverpool as I got 12.5 for and 50% sell on fee.

£126M for a Striker from Exeter. He won the Golden boot for england when Exeter were in the Championship. I had a huge transfer budget and really wanted the player. I just kept putting in increasing bids until they finally accepted.

Worth every penny too.

Despite later on finding out his PA was only 176ish

Ok, I'm still on FM05, but here's mine.

At the start of the 08/09 season I bought talented central defender Andre Coral for £1.5m from Chelsea, where he was out of favour. (He was a product of the Porto youth system).

He later advised that I sell him to avoid losing him on a free as we wouldn't manage to meet his wage demands, so at the end of the 10/11 season, I sold him to Juventus for £20m.

At the start of the 19/20 season, I teamed up with him again, bringing him to Lazio to finish his career when his contract at Juvntus expired.

He made a big difference at both clubs and was an absolute bargain.

I signed a player from Tamworth whose scout report came back as "has the potential to be a decent Coca Cola Championship player", and I signed him for an arranged friendly and 20% of his future fee. I've had him for three years so far, and he's been on loan to Redditch and Altrincham without being very good, so I'm not going to bother keeping him.

No, he was simply stating a fact in response to this thread, he hasn't paid our for a regen, never mind anyone else. No need for the accusations! icon_rolleyes.gif Oh yeah, and a bit of punctuation would be good.

Sorry but i just dont think its a very good answer to the question. There are other people adding to the thread with constructive posts and then this post which is not very specific to the thread. I just sort of sense a element of pride in the statement which i find pops up in many urelated threads, but maybe there isnt in which case im sorry for the accusation. As for the punctuation, i dont think it really matters that much in a football manager forum on the internet, unless your going to publish it in which case i will send revised versions.

My first purchase came in 2017, it wasn't until I reached the Premier League that I could actually afford to pay for transfers.

Annoyingly my first ever money signing was a defender for £100k who never did get a work permit.

Since then I've splashed out £17.5m on an Italian wonderkid midfielder.

The question was how much money have you spent on a regen. The reply was simply that he had never spent any money on a regen, therefore £0 was the most he'd ever spent. It also explained that he hadn't spent any money on anyone else for that matter, that his general policy was to spend nothing, and for regens this was no different.
