So Ive seen a few people having problems whereby a player doesnt actually join their team after agreeing a pre contract. This means you're paying for the player and dont get to use him. Pretty bad...
Ive just had something that could be considered the opposite. I signed a 65 OVR 24 yr old striker ready for my second season with Cambridge. I was promoted to L1 after this (dont know whether this is relevant). I offered him 4k for 4 years and he accepted.
When he signed, he was the same player, same name, same wage cost... but 75 OVR. He's already up to 77 OVR by October. Worth 6.5m (base, would imagine I'll get close to double). Basically when I sell him (and I'm sure I will) he'll fund the entire push to the premiership as I'll be able to buy 7-8 promising 19-20 yr olds who will grow to be high value players.
Now I'm not saying this isnt great for this particular career. However surely this is a bug? Anyone else had the same?
