Retiring players in real life?

7 posts in this topic

Good day,

Today I found out that Xabi Alonso and Philipp Lahm will be retiring this summer when the season ends (in real life).

Due to this I was wondering will they also be retired in Soccer Manager? I have these players in few of my teams and if they will be retired, I think now would be a great moment to sell them.

Any thought, gentlemen?

Yes, they will retire on the game as well. You still get a fee when they retire on the game though so selling them is not particularly necessary.

If a player is listed on the game as retiring (rtd) then you won't be allowed to sell them. They won't drop in terms of their rating, and when they leave you'll get their current value in cash from what I can remember.

I very much doubt they'll be listed as retiring now. Probably May/June, and until then everything will be normal, so you could sell them and get a replacement.

Well if that's the case, if i'll get the amount they are worth, then I guess it's not necessary to sell them. They are highly rated and they provide a good addition to my teams!

I'll just hope that they don't drop in value... :D

As soon as a player is listed as retiring, their rating won't change. So in the case of Lahm for example, you just need to hope he doesn't get a decrease before the end of the real life season - and I'm almost certain he'll stay as he his.
