If you think a player wants too
high wages, try releasing him on free transfer, and then re-sign him. In
most cases will the player now demand a contract with about 20-33 % less
amount money in wages than before. You sometimes can experience stiff competition
from other clubs on signing the player if you choose this method, but that's
a risk you have to take...
When you make an offer, put
high offer until the club accepts. Then make a good offer to the player.
When player agree to move, REJECT it. Other Club will not interest anymore
or may be for a while. Then you can make offer again. And more chance to
sign the player.
