Your biggest transfers: In & Out
Simple. What is the most you've paid for a player & what is the most you've received for a player. Who was it & was it worth it?

In: Edinson Cavani - £60m from Napoli
Totally worth it, broke Andy Cole's 34 premier league goals (got 37) in his debut season, scored over 50 goals in all competitions. Has been EPL top scorer 3 seasons running.

Out: Douglas Costa - £37.5m to Real Madrid
Fans hated me for it for a little bit, not sure why, he was infuriatingly inconsistent. Well-worth it, helped to finance my move for Marek Hamsik for £40m, Napoli do good business from me.

I'm Spurs btw.

I'm in 2024 playing as Swindon so there are very few original players remaining. Neymar Jr. is going to retire soon. That being said...

In: Rogerio Paulo - $315m from Man City (2023)
It sounds like an absurd amount but it is well worth it as he averages about 2 goals a game in the EPL. At age 25 his career goals are already over 200. Flamengo born. Bought him this year and he is joining a world class and award winning lineup so I expect great things to come.

Out: Daniel Ormsby - $45m to Juventus (2019)
The fans were not happy about this sale, though they were happy I had received so much money from it. The initial worries that we had sold a very valuable and sought after player were squashed as some new, great replacements stepped up and became even better.

My most frequent buyer, however, is Linfield. Constantly buying up my youth players year after year. It is quite nice.

With my Chelsea save in January 2018:

In: Sergio Busquets - 98$ + Per Mertesacker from Barcelona (2015)
I know it seems crazy, but I needed a good Defensive Midfielder to replace Ramires, who I sold off to PSG. I wanted someone with expericnce who I know could play well in the backfield. Barca wasn't playing him first team anymore, so i just went ahead and got him. I actually do think I overpayed for him.

Out: David Alaba - 40$ to Manchester United (2017)
I brought in Alaba from Bayern in July of 2013. He had a couple good seasons with me. I decided to sell him off because I needed the money and because I had some decent replacements for him. He is now one of the top players at United.

EDIT: Just checked, it was actually 89$, not 98$.:cashsplash:

In my Murcia save -

In - Leon Goretzka for 23 Mil from Bochum

After three seasons of fighting for promotion, finally got it. Board and player sales gave me a good amount of money which I spent on Leon. So far, he's been awful and probably one of the worst buys I have ever made. Will ship him off soon and expect to get a good amount of money for him.

Out - Federico Cassarini for 10 Mil to Juventus

Got him on a free and was integral to my promotion and a great servant ot the club for two years, I was forced to sell him off to fund my chase for Leon.

In:Bale for 70.000.000
Quite a lot for my first season but I dont regret it At the moment its 12 games and 17 goals

Out:Neymar for 65.000.000
In another save I bought him for 55.000.000 in my second season but with
0 goals in 30 apps I sold him
Decent Money though

Oh And its in Man City

In: Messi around €250M . United was taken over by some billionaire, i thought, what the hell, i always want to see Messi in United, why not? Not really worth it btw.

Out: Rooney for €50M. I accepted Arsenal's offer after he told me he has won everything he can with the club. I've already got RVP and Henriquez plus quality regens, no biggie.
In Man United

In - Draxler for 40 mln pounds from Schalke in first transfer window.

Out - Rooney for 150 mln pounds to Real Madrid in 2016 summer window.
Bernardus Sep 30, 2013 @ 12:04pm 
In: Peter Altenburg for £33m. Bit of a joke - good stats but couldn't hit a barn door with a banjo!

Out: Ever Velazquez for £15m: terrible defender at a good profit, but I sometimes have trouble selling players for any money at all...

Liverpool, btw
kinzo Sep 30, 2013 @ 3:46pm 
IN : Eden Hazard €67m (Chelsea to AS Monaco).
OUT : TANAKA (bresilian regen) €51m (Monaco to Barcelona)
Jade Mainframe Sep 30, 2013 @ 8:04pm 
IN: Jack Wilshere $75m usd (Arsenal to Sevilla)
OUT: Stevan Jovetic $69m usd (Florentina to PSG)

I don't like to buy players over $35m usd but I made $148m usd on Transfers thanks to spanish B team system
Evil Yoshi X Oct 1, 2013 @ 3:40pm 
IN: Mohamed Diame £15.5 M from Norwich

Needed some experience and cover in the midfield to aid the younger players, fitted the bill perfectly.

OUT: Moi Gomez £35 M to Porto

A great player in his own right, but I changed around my formation/system to solely utilise defensive central midfeilders after my 4th season, the problem was this guy was purely an attacking central midfielder, so it was just a case of a player not fitting the system etc.

Still, considering I got him on a free transfer from Villarreal, 35 M profit was not too bad :P
SamKimish Oct 1, 2013 @ 4:50pm 
In: Neymar £90m - worth every penny

Out: German regen for £120 - went on to win La Liga player of the year for three consecutive seasons :(
desy Oct 2, 2013 @ 8:48am 
IN: Falcao £35M
OUT: Cabaye £70M
