How to sign players on pre-contracts.
In a brand new feature to Career Mode, players can now arrange to join clubs on a pre-contract deal. What does this mean and how do you do it? Let us explain it for you.
A pre-contract is the way in which you offer a contract to a player at another club entering the final months of his contract. Once a player has 6 months or less remaining on his contract, you are free to approach the player and offer him a deal, which allows him to join your club for free once his contract expires in the summer. So, that’s what a pre-contract is, but how do I use it to my advantage in Career Mode? Here’s how.
First things first, only players above the age of 23 can be signed this way, but don’t let this put you off as there’s a bunch of good players you can still sign. Once you’ve reached the December – January period, set up instructions for your Global Transfer Network scouts using the following criteria: Any position, aged between 23 and any age (we would recommend no older than 31-32 as players stats decline at this age), and 0-1 years remaining on their contracts. Now send your scouts to the top leagues around Europe and South America and wait to see who they find. Once the scout returns with a list of players, select the player that interests you and you will notice the option of ‘Approach to sign on pre-contract’.
Below is a list of some players who can be aquired this way in the first season of Career Mode.
Blaise Matuidi (PSG)
Clement Grenier (Lyon)
Juan Sanchez Mino (Boca Juniors)
Ever Banega (Valencia)
Sebastian Rode (Eintracht Frankfurt)
Mateo Musacchio (Villareal)
Ibrahim Afellay (Barcelona)
Of course, there are many more players available to sign this way. These are only examples to wet the appetite. If you come across other players available this way, do let us know in the comments section, and of course, enjoy this amazing new feature to Career Mode.
