Transfer Information

We tried to sign Weston McKennie as manager of Manchester City and we agreed terms with Schalke for a 24M fee. Small detail is the 50% of profit from next sale we had to include. It is possible to lower this clause, but you will have to pay more. If you are managing a club in Germany his fee could also be higher, as Schalke is reluctant to sell inside their own league. Voor a player like McKennie, 24M is a good deal.
