Re: **Official Football Manager Thread**
Has anyone got any tips to get rid of players that no-one wants? I've just taken over as manager of Atletico Madrid and the wage bill is 400k in the red. I've got 3 old players who I want to get rid of to halve the wage bill but I can't get rid of them at all, even for free. Mutual consent and release on a free transfer gets blocked and just pisses them off. Offer to clubs, only brings in loans bids where I still have to pay the wages.
I can't offer them lower contracts because the board have capped the wages to silly levels, so I'm stuck with a catch 22 situation unless I start selling my best players which I don't really want to do.
