Can a football team buy and sell a player in the same transfer window?


Buying and selling players is a huge part of football management, getting that star player can be the difference between success and failure.


From time to time you may come across special unattached players in the market that are available for diamonds. These types of players have been tested and scouted thoroughly and their potential will reach a certain point. These types of players are worth taking a chance on as even though their value is set a little above the market rate, their price can give you an indication of how good a player might become if he plays regularly. It's unlikely that two players of the same star rating will cost the same, their value takes their potential into consideration too.


In order to put one of your players up for sale, they can't be in your starting 11. Once you've replaced them in your line up with one of your squad players you will be able to put them on the transfer list. You are able to run a team...

There aren't many managers in the world who would confess to being completely happy with their current playing squad. Let's face it, half the fun of being a football manager is wheeling and dealing! So, with that in mind, let's have a quick look at how best to go about buying and selling players.

As soon as you take over at a club you will be looking to add new players to your squad as you ship out the dead wood and look to find the right players for your team and tactics.

Buying Players Under Contract

To make an offer for a player, go to the player's screen. Select 'Make Offer' from the Action Bar.

When making a transfer bid, your primary focus is on how much you are willing to pay. Setting an appropriate 'Amount' will be looked upon more favourably by the club you're making the offer to; try to ensure that you're offering at least 100% of the player's current valuation as a starting point.

You can set a Transfer Date and include a Sell-On...

If you are not sure whether to sell a player, you can negotiate anyway - maybe an offer high enough will convince you.

You can of course not only buy players, but also sell them. There can be several reasons: a player that you don't need, a start that no longer is eager to play or simply a need to make place for other players. No matter the reason, you first have to receive an offer to negotiate the price. The easiest way is to change the player's status to not needed and putting him on the transfer list. You will increase your chance of selling a player when selecting the option Offer to clubs. The teams will receive an information about a given player being available. If you want to sell a player fast, the price has to be lower than market value.

You will also receive offers for players that are not on the list. In that case, if you decide to sell a player, you can negotiate a much higher price than the starting offer. If the offer is really high (it can happen in...

Paul Pogba

is the most expensive player in the history of association football, as officially announced by the clubs involved in his 2016 transfer.

In professional football, a transfer is the action taken whenever a player under contract moves between clubs. It refers to the transferring of a player's registration from one association football club to another. In general, the players can only be transferred during a transfer window and according to the rules set by a governing body. Usually some sort of compensation is paid for the player's rights, which is known as a transfer fee. When a player moves from one club to another, their old contract is terminated and they negotiate a new one with the club they are moving to, unlike in American, Canadian and Australian sports, where teams essentially trade existing player contracts. In some cases, however, transfers can function in a similar manner to player trades, as teams can offer another player on their squad as part of the...

Premier League clubs are permitted to conduct the purchase and sale of players during the winter and summer transfer windows.

Windows were introduced as part of a compromise agreement with the European Commission about how the whole transfer system worked and how it could best preserve contractual stability for both the player and the club while allowing movement at prescribed times during the year – the summer and winter transfer windows in effect.

The alternative was to bring football in line with most other industries where contracts were not enforceable or liable for appropriate compensation, i.e. notice periods being served and players moving at will. The football authorities across Europe felt this would fatally undermine the footballing economy and remove the incentive for clubs to invest in developing players.

The winter transfer window usually opens on the first day of the New Year and closes at 11pm BST on the last day of January.

Rumours, reputation and cold, hard cash. No, this isn’t a soap opera synopsis, but the usual dynamic of the transfer window. But what really happens when football’s millionaire owners enter a frenzied bidding war for the best players?

Running the gauntlet that is the transfer deadline window, clubs can face tough decisions, deals and last-minute disasters. But it’s these backroom negotiations, amid the chatter of the teleprinter and the frantic phone calls about salaries and bonus packages, that our number-crunching nerds want to explore. So we decided to bring you a snapshot of the unseen faces and frustrations behind the deals that bring in the best talent by transfer deadline day.

Spotting the right talent

Despite the panic of the transfer window, scouts can actually spend months and sometimes yearsi tracking talent beforehand, tailing specific targets to make sure they’re the right fit for the team.
And since Premier League cheques often run...

This is from FM legend RAIKAN (now "retired"):

Always load up several nations, not just England, France etc! If you do this then always load up Russia and Ukraine as playable, especially if you are managing in Italy, France, Germany, England or Spain! Ukrainian and Russian teams tend to make a lot of big money offers.

Then do this:

1) On the first day of your save, go into staff responsibilities (personal assistant) and put asking price to 200%

2) On the first day of a transfer window offer out all the players you don't need or want! Remember though, not all clubs will want your rejects! Keep on offering them out, someone will come in with an offer!

(if you cannot sell a player, play the player in games, hopefully he will perform, then this will make him more marketable to sell, no one wants to buy some player who rots away in reserves for twice his value or even at his current value)

3) Each time you offer out players wait for a day. If...

It was a side that thrilled the English Premier League.

From the glut of goals provided by Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, to the speed of Raheem Sterling and the guile of Philippe Coutinho, as well as the deployment of Steven Gerrard as football's answer to the quarterback, Liverpool's re-emergence last season was the arguably the biggest surprise in the race for the title.

If Liverpool ultimately fell short in finishing second, some compensation came in the form of player awards for Suarez and a manager of the year award for Brendan Rodgers.

But one man’s name was never mentioned in despatches in discussions as to why a team that had finished seventh the previous season gave eventual winners Manchester City the fright of their lives.

That man was Ian Graham, a Cambridge graduate, who holds a PhD in theoretical physics.

A self-confessed fan of the club, Liverpool's Director of Research Graham declined an interview with...

Editor’s note: This piece has been updated below to reflect that Samuel Ukwuachu was found guilty of second-degree sexual assault on August 20, 2015.

In early June, Baylor defensive coordinator Phil Bennett was a guest speaker at a luncheon in Fort Worth for the Baylor Sports Network. During his speech, he dropped a bit of long-anticipated information about the team’s plans: He expected defensive end Sam Ukwuachu—a Freshman All-American who transferred in 2013 from Boise State to Baylor only to miss 2014, his first eligible season with the Bears, for unspecified reasons—to finally take the field. It was a significant announcement for a program that’s a favorite pick to clinch one of four College Football Playoff spots, and it was reported by a breathless sports media eager to talk up head coach Art Briles’ program. No one questioned Bennett’s assertion that Ukwuachu was expected to play—even though Ukwuachu was due to...

Dortmund have agreed to let Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave the club at the end of the season, reports Sport Bild.

Aubameyang is one of the Continent’s most feared strikers, having struck 87 times in 152 appearances for Dortmund.

He was linked with a move away from Signal Iduna Park in the summer – Real, Man City and PSG were touted as possible suitors – although he ended up staying put.

He could be on the move next year, though, as Sport Bild says the player and Dortmund have reached an agreement over his departure at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old has previously expressed his desire to join Madrid, but any move to the Bernabeu could be scuppered by the transfer ban that FIFA have imposed on the European champions.

I’ve seen quite a few people coming on to the site with questions about the rules of, mainly, the McDonalds format, particularly around transfers. Also around the usability of the McDonalds format. Here’s some thoughts of mine on these points. Unfortunately, firstly I can’t wave a magic wand and give you all the answers as the rules look like they have been drafted by either someone who doesn’t have a clue or care about clarity. Secondly and to be kind the McDonalds site it, shall we say, has a few functionality issues with points disapeering etc . I imagine these are problems which will come and go as the site tries to fix them. I won’t try and tackle these. Hopefully this article can also be a bit of a forum for those wanting to discuss the issues they have. I gather it’s similar to UFPL and also the World Cup version in 2014 so those people who have played these formats will be helpful

Transfer deadline day is just around the corner and Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner will be counting down the hours until the window slams shut.

Town did most of their business over a month ago, with Tareiq Holmes-Dennis being brought in last week as a replacement for Jason Davidson who went out on loan to Groningen.

Deadline day should be quiet for table-topping Town, but many of the other Championship clubs are still in need of reinforcements.

Here we look at what every club in the second tier will be hopeful of signing before 11pm on Wednesday August 31.

Aston Villa

Ins: Tommy Elphick (Bournemouth), Aaron Tshibola (Reading), Pierluigi Gollini (Hellas Verona), Ross McCormack (Fulham), James Chester (West Brom), Mile Jedinak (Crystal Palace), Ritchie De Laet (Leicester).
