So basically, I am at the last few weeks of my 1st season and wanted to buy Messi for the fun of it. He is available on pre-contract and I am able to deal directly with him as he is left with 1-2 months in his contract at Barca.
All is good, I have the finances to pay him what he wants and am able to enter into a negotiation directly. BUT the only issue here is, no matter how I toggle the Budget allocation slider to give me more wage budget, the max it will go for Messi or any new players will be at $480,000 only. And he is asking for $550,000 on top of signing fee. I have over $100+ million of finances, even went to the extend putting my wages bill on a 90% and transfer bill on 10%.
However if I went to negotiate a new contract with my existing players, I can offer them as according to my wage budget; I can offer them way way more than the $480,000 mentioned above.
What is wrong here? Do the wage allocation slider work? Am I missing something or is this a bug?
