The data experts working on unofficial data updates are doing their best to keep FM 2017 up to date with the latest transfers until FM18 arrives. There are roughly 2 more months until that happens, so there's enough time to give FM17 another spin and try a new challenge for a save game, having the latest real world transfers in it.
Remember that there will be NO official data update for the summer transfer window. This always comes with the new game release. That is why this article is important to those of you who are looking for a way to start a new save game with the latest world transfers applied.
We will be monitoring all freely available data updates out there week after week to give you a handy comparison chart that makes it easy to figure out which pack is best for you (see below). The point of this infographic is to help you make an informed decision.

IMPORTANT: These unofficial updates can be used in your game and have nothing to do with pirate copies; they are editor data files you could create yourself.
While we haven't created our own data update for this cause, we are glad to present you with all the quality data updates made around the scene.
