Were they unprotected contracts as opposed to bosmans?
I'm currently playing as Angers in the French league. Just noticed that all the free transfers that I will be signing are not free!? They are all over the age of 25 so tribunal shouldn't come into it
Is there a Bug in the French league or something?
I thought all contracts are bosman?
It depends, you can signed players with unprotected contracts. The fee you pay is essentially the remainder of the players contract.
Actually if search around I think this may well be a bug. Are you using a Tapani patch or not? If so what version?
