Okay...

Started a new game as Real Madrid (yes I know too easy) and wanted to try something, namely getting two players for each position in a 4-5-1 formation where everyone has a different role, with a larger proportion of spanish players than the pitiful amount Los Blancos start with. With this in mind I made the following transfers -
IN

GK - David De Gea - Man Utd - £16.75 Million (4 star potential)
DR - Mattia De Sciglio - AC Milan - £16.25 Million (3.5 star potential)
DLC - Holger Badstuber - Bayern - £17.5 Million (3.5 star potential)
DL - Marcos Alonso - Bolton - £2.8 Million (3 star potential)
MCR - Ruben Pardo - Sociedad - £15 Million (4 star potential)
MCR - Toni Kroos - Bayern - £26.75 Million (4 star potential)
AMR - Jesus Navas - Sevilla - £30.5 Million (3 star quality )
AML - Viktor Fischer - Ajax - £8 Million (3.5 star potential)
STC - Heung Min-Son - HSV - £12.75 Million (4 star potential)

OUT

GK - Antonio Adan - Man City - £1.6 Million (all over 24 months)
DRC - Ricardo Carvalho - Udinese - £3.2 Million (all over 12 months)
WBL - Marcelo - Arsenal - £33.5 Million (up front, 50% sell on)
MCR - Sami Khedira - Bayern - £16.25 Million (up front, 50% sell on)
MCR - Michael Essien - Chelsea - N/A (returned from loan)
AMC - Kaka - Man City - £24 Million (8 up front, 16 over 12 months)
AMC - Mesut Ozil - Man Utd - £33.5 Million (up front, 50% sell on)
AML - Angel Di Maria - Chelsea - £28.5 Million (up front, 50% sell on)

SWAP

Pepe - David Alaba - Bayern
Fabio Coentrao - Aaron Ramsey - Arsenal
Gonzalo Higuain - Sandro - Tottenham

I have also sent Mejias, Nacho and Morata to Castilla.

The squad now looks like this -

GK - CASILLAS , DE GEA - GK DEFEND
DR - ARBELOA , DE SCIGLIO - FB SUPPORT
DRC - RAMOS , ALBIOL - CD STOPPER
DLC - BADSTUBER, VARANE - BPD COVER
DL - ALABA , ALONSO - WB ATTACK
DMC - ALONSO , SANDRO - AM DEFEND
MCR - KROOS , PARDO - DLP SUPPORT
MCL - MODRIC , RAMSEY - AP ATTACK
AMR - NAVAS , CALLEJON - W ATTACK
AML - RONALDO , FISCHER - IF SUPPORT
STC - BENZEMA , SON-MIN - CF ATTACK

I plan to sell Arbeloa (not quick enough), Varane (not left footed), Alonso (age), Callejon (lacks quality) and Ronaldo (selfish) at the end of the first season, and possibly bring in Azpilicueta, Inigo Martinez, Romeu, Vadillo and Eden Hazard.

With the right training/discipline I plan to make all the players have their suggested roles to match my tactics, and if they don't then I will sell them. I also value teamwork as key to this idea hence the future swap of Ronaldo (4 teamwork) for Hazard (12 teamwork) since all Ronaldo does is shoot. Not my way I'm afraid.

Thoughts of alternatives for signings/tactics/general feedback are welcome. Just about to play Barca in the Spanish Super Cup...
