Despite being in debt almost up to twice the value of the club At Madrid are not afraid to splash the cash and after last season they sold of Aguero and Forlan and brought in the wonderful Falcao for a massive £35 million, it will be nice for once not having to pay that £52 million release clause to get him like i have on previous Man Utd and Barcelona saves.
The main problem i will have with the finances despite both loans lasting til 2030 is that i only get half the revenue made from any transfers so a lot of the bigger deals including ones to sell Falcao really dont seem worth it, having looked at the squad i feel we can survive til January without anyone coming or going as i will then be able to see who the deadwood is.
We are touted for 3rd place in the league and a good run in the Europa League and to do this i doubt i will need to strengthen or change the squad much i will have to mainly look towards free transfers, loans, youth players and bosmans to get any new players in.
Falcao is clearly the shining light of this team but we do have quality throughout including two young decent GK's, i will look to play Falcao up front on his own as a Poacher and have Arda Turan just behind him feeding him through balls and lastly striker Adrian will be turned into more of an AMR and hope to get in on the goals himself. In real life i know Diego Costa has also been playing well recently but his ratings by my Assitant dont look promising.
There are no stand out players in any of the 3 lower reserve teams but decent looking youngsters include AMC Oliver, DMC Koke who is more of a first team player already and striker Pedro who i will be looking to get some game time when Falcao needs a rest.
The tactic is very simple and a tried and tested method on many saves including Wolves, Dnipro and Man Utd it is just a good tactic that seems to work for me, Falcao will be up front while Turan is in behind with Adrian and Rodriguez hammering balls across the box for Falcao to get on the end of.
