FIFA 18: A Championship club has the fourth-highest transfer budget in Career Mode

Well, we weren't expecting that!

When you think of the richest teams in the world, Derby County probably doesn’t come to mind.

But in FIFA 18’s Career Mode, the Championship club is up there with the very wealthiest in the world.

In fact, Derby boast the fourth largest transfer budget in the game – a cool £105.6m.

Only Man United (£148.9m), Man City (£132m) and PSG (£114.4m) have more.

Which means Derby’s total transfer budget is bigger than Barcelona, Real Madrid, Monaco, Chelsea and other filthy rich clubs.

Theoretically you’ll be able to attract some of the world’s best players to play in the Championship to the midlands of England.

But why?

Well it’s because their owner, Mel Morris, made approximately £500million from investing in the mobile app Candy Crush.

Career Mode has had a huge overhaul this year, with the addition of interactive transfer negotiations.


This allows you to take part in real-time talks with other club reps and agents.

These interactions are powered by the rejigged Frostbite engine – and while they don’t feature audible dialogue, they’ve been very well received by fans.

Maybe Cristiano Ronaldo to Derby County isn’t so far fetched after all?
