morganb Has anyone bought Josh Laurent for Reading in Football Manager? Perhaps the club should do this with any player they're looking at, so they can see how things pan out.
The trouble is any purchases you make in Football Manager are only valid in the game itself and that applies regardless of who's doing it. The player isn't actually signed or even trialled by the club in real life. It's all just a simulation. So even if Reading FC do it officially, it will still only be valid within Football Manager itself.
