Signing players on Career Mode can be tough – especially when you’re after one of the world’s best.
So, what happens when – against all odds, you decide to throw a spanner in the works and ask to sign them for next to nothing?
Well, that’s exactly what we did with Cristiano Ronaldo in FIFA 18 – offering the Portuguese star just £1 to join our club.
Off the bat, we know we’ve got our work cut out.
As you’re aware, Career Mode has been massively overhauled this year – so before we got to the agent, we had to placate Ronaldo’s Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane.
As our earlier piece showed, that’s no easy task.
If the offer is slightly too low, the Frenchman will storm out of the room, saying: “I feel like I’ve wasted my time here.”
Luckily, we breezed past that opening section – with Zidane oblivious to what we had planned.
If only he knew.
Next, it’s on to the agent and, after discussing his contract length, it was down to the all important numbers.
We offered the Portuguese £1. Now, this is where it gets interesting.
Amazingly, Ronaldo doesn’t get up and leave – but , in a nice touch from EA, is clearly annoyed.
He genuinely tries to stare you out – while the manager tries his best to keep calm.
Eventually, the agent politely declines before – bizarrely – wishes us the best and hopes our ‘paths will cross again’.
Ronaldo’s face would suggest otherwise!
