But it looks like the guys over at PSV have taken their love for FM to a whole new level, by utilising the popular PC game to announce their latest signing.

The Eredivisie giants have used a video of the game posted on their Twitter account to unveil the addition of young forward Maximiliano Romero from Velez Sarsfield.

Take a look. 

How cute. 

Judging from the video, the striker will join PSV in the summer of 2018 in a deal worth £2.2 million.

His contract will run until June 2023, earning him over over €9,000-a-week plus a signing on fee of €267,000.

According to reports in Holland, the Eindhoven-based club beat Borussia Dortmund to the signing of the 18-year-old, with Arsenal also previously linked with him.

PSV boss Phillip Cocu said: “We have seen him in action several times and we think that he, as a number nine, has the ability to be a genuine goal threat in the Eredivisie.

“He is a physically strong, clinical striker and is comfortable dribbling and shooting with both feet.

“He has great potential and we couldn’t waste the golden opportunity to sign him.”

Ah, spoken like a true fan of the game.
