Career Mode - Save Money with Transfers
Note - this Hint applies to Manager and Player Manager careers only!
It is possible to save money when purchasing players. Sometimes clubs will demand an excessive amount of money for their players. There is a trick to get around this.
For example, let's say you want to buy Carlos Tevez. You offer Manchester City around £35/36 million for him. They are likely to respond asking for a higher transfer sum, probably something like £48 million or thereabouts.
At this point, the best thing to do is to withdraw from negotiations with the club, and then immediately go back and try to sign him again.
Obviously, the price they wanted for Tevez should just give you the impression that they wanted more money than you offered them. Instead of offering them £48 million this time around, offer them someting like £40/41/42 million and they'll probably accept without wishing to renegotiate prices. Therefore, you have saved a fair amount of money here.
Unfortunately, this only works with clubs. You can't do this with the players themselves when you are offering them a contract, as if you withdraw from contract negotiations, you won't be able to renegotiate until the next transfer window opens.
