  • Start with Juventus and transfer list Del Piero. Lots of clubs will offer a large amount of money for him (about £30,000,000). Note: Do not accept the offers with monthly installments, as some of the clubs will offer straight up front.

Easy victory

Use the filter to find any player who has ability over 180. These players are very good but usually are very expensive and famous. However, some of them are not -- for example, some players from South America. You can use filter to find any player with potential over 180. Some of them, especially the younger ones, are not expensive and will develop into very good players in a few years.

Cheap players

  • Add the manager of the club that the player is at. You can now release the player you want and resign as manager that day. The very next day you will see that the player is freelance and plays for number one. You can then attempt to sign the player on at a cheap price.
  • Add the manager, then just make a bid of about a million. You are manager of the club that you want the player from, so you can accept and reject any other bids from other clubs and let the player go to your club for a very small amount.

Free players

  • Take over the team that you would like to get the player from and set his transfer status to $0, "This Player Is Not Needed" and "This Player Is On Transfer List". He will get mad. Click on "Change Player" and switch to your name. Approach to buy him and the desired player should be worth $0. After that, you will get a new mail message for the team you took over. Accept the transfer, etc., The player will almost always accept your contract and sign with you for no money. Note: If the player is in a different region, when you choose the leagues you want so you can get your free players, choose the leagues with the players in them.
  • To get a player to volunteer, place an outrageous bid for him (twice his market value). After his team has accepted, change your offer zero and select "Cancel" on the "Adjust Offer" screen.

Also llyas Saglamoglu from Torslanda is very cheap. He costs about £90,000 but can be worth up to £16 million. Also, try to buy players from Finnish or Swedish clubs. Some players can be bought for £200,000, but be worth about £8 million within half a season. Phillipe Mexes from Auxerre and Ivan Javier Cuadrado are also quite cheap and very good players for middle table Premiership clubs.
