Footballer Transfer Deal


Roberto Eenio is a bright new footballing star in the making and at the age of 19 has already played over 30 games for FC Flare in Italy’s Serie A league.

Question marks have also been raised about the player’s temperament as he had a high profile ‘spat’ with the FC Flare manager Carlo Talkalottie having been substituted in one of his few starts of the current season.

FC Flare are keen to offload their player in the upcoming transfer window if the price is right and there has already been considerable interest for the player from some top Premier League clubs in England. One such club is ‘Grandaspire’, who are keen to re-enforce their attacking options following a start to the season which has found them dangerously close to the relegation zone.

Roberto has heard of the interest from England and is keen to make a ‘fresh start’, especially in light of his fall-out with his current manager.

You are about to conduct a negotiation for the transfer of Roberto Eenio. You can choose to either represent the player as their agent or act on behalf of Grandaspire as their manager, Mervin Haggler...
