I have opened initial talks with Barcelona about the potential signing of Sergio Busquets.
I do have John Obi Mikel and Oriol Romeu but Mikel has a terrible attitude towards me. Whenver I give a team talk he is unhappy, whenever I praise or criticise the team he is unhappy. I won't sign or sell any player for the sake of it but he seems to be the only player who I'm having problems with. Not 100% sure of what to do regarding this.
Dont worry about it too much mate. He will be demotivated like that for a while, but once youve played till November or so, whilst winning the majority of your games, he will become far more positive.
One thing is important though, do not change your style as a manager. If it doesnt agree with one player, then so be it. I had the same problem on my Man Utd save. I bought Tevez for £6mil and for the first he months he was a nightmare! But i played him, gave him regular chances, kept on praising the team when they one, motivating or shouting when we were doing bad, and within a couple of months he loved me.
So just stick in their. No need to sell him just because of that.
What i would suggest though is buying some players. You are in need of a decent right back, some out and put wingers and possibly even a class striker to partner Torres upfront. I know you have Drogba, Anelka and Sturridge, but Anelka and Drogba are ageing and you need someone who can help carry your team forward too.
I would suggest buying:
RB - Sime Vrsaljko (immense young player who can hit the ground running. He can also play LB and DM)
RW - Hulk (he can also play as a striker so may be pretty useful)
CF - Cavani (he can play RW and will defo be able to carry you team foreward! A must buy in my opinion)
GK - Ander-ter Stegen (a great young prospect. I know you have Cech, but he may be prone to getting complacent as there is no competition for a 1st team spot. Buying Stegen means you will get the best out of Cech as well as having an awesome replacement keeper)
Hope that helps mate
