Last year, EA completely revamped it, introducing Frostbite-powered transfer negotiations.

It saw you barter with players, managers and agents to bag a star signing. And this year, it’s back with aplomb.

So, let’s put it through its paces, shall we? Is it possible to convince Leo Messi to up sticks, leave Barcelona and play for bitter rivals, Real Madrid?

In fact, to even get Messi thinking about leaving he’s pressing for  a cool £171million.

Not going to happen – but he does eventually settle for en equally eye-watering, but substantially less £158,200,000.

Stage One complete.

Next, it’s on to the player himself – which isn’t going to be easy.

Right off the bat, Messi’s agent wants a release clause of £274,700,000. So far, so good.

He’s also happy with a three-year-deal.

That’s a lot of money

Next the Argentine wants a huge weekly salary, and is happy when he’s offered £500,000 a week.

So happy, in fact, that he signs for Real.

Welcome, Leo
