Career Mode is one of the most best things about FIFA 19.
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?
YouTuber Rich Leigh tested this out – with amazing results. First up, it’s the manager – who’s pretty greedy.
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.
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.
So, there you have it. You CAN sign Messi for Real Madrid in Career Mode.
