hello im new to the forum but read it every day and i was just wondering has anyone ever signed lionel messi ? stupid question but was wondering
I sign him once back in FM2005 where he wasn't so great but since then on.
Yup, not in Fm 2011 as I only played with small teams, but I had him twice at Man City and once Liverpool. He was available for around 115-125 millions EURO.
Big sums. :O But greatest players in the world have to cost a lot.
# macdab55 : I sign him once back in FM2005 where he wasn't so great but since then on.

yea i had him in 2005 but i was wondering about 2011...
ive never had the mooney but have declared interest and he is flatterd lool
The closest I've gotten to signing Messi is with City as well. In my FM10 save with City, I submitted an inquiry for the hell of it to see what Barca wanted for him. IIRC, Barca replied with 150m+.
In FM2011 I had only play in 1 save(currently in 2015/2016 season) and to be honest with ya I haven't got money cuz my biggest transfer budget was 1million pounds and I play in polish league so I think he woldn't be intrested.
FM2010 5 or 6 seasons in with Spurs, cost me 120m GBP, paid 40m over 48months some in clauses and 60m straight up. Got injured for a month after the 2nd game :-(
Man that's sucks when you paid a lot of money for a guy and then his injured for long period of time.
Never managed to buy him, but never really tried to buy him either.. I guess if you can easily afford him and don't need any other players, you could buy him. But I'd rather buy 4 players of 30 million rather than pay 120m for one. After a few seasons you can usually get some ~195 PA regens for even less.
Yeah I prefer the same to buy few players for the same amount as 1 player.
yes back in fm 08 with Inter for 125M but he never achived high standards!
Yeah. He was injury prone until FM2010, like he was in Real-Life. Was such a waste of money in FM2007, with A.C. Milan. Then I bought Ronaldo :D
i bought him in fm10 with liverpool but he was 33 years old...
Even at 33 he could play good 1 or 2 seasons.
