Contract Extension‘s for Professional Players
Negotiation time window
If the contract of your player runs for only one more season a contract
extension can be negotiated. Negotiations can take place over
numerous negotiation rounds and can also be conducted over several days.
Preconditions for starting contract negotiations
The player has only one contract (no succeeding contract).
The player‘s contract expires at the end of the season.
The player is not listed on the transfer market.
The player has no present contract proposals (preliminary) from any other team.
The player is used in the first team with a match practise value of over 55 points.
Demands and offers
Both negotiating parties (you as the team‘s representative and the player
as his own representative), submit a demand and an offer in each negotiation round.
If the offer from the club is in line with the players demands then the
contract is signed and the player is immediately a part of the respective team.
Should your offer and the players demands not meet then negotiations will
continue into the next round where both parties can adjust their contractual arrangement.
Collapse of negotiations
A player‘s willingness to negotiate, restricts the number of negotiation
rounds available to negoatiate a contract. With every round
the players willingness to negotiate drops, and should it reach 0
negotiations will be called off without any kind of agreement.
In this case the player will definatley leave your club, and further
contract negotiations are not possible.
At the beginning of contract negotiations, the players current satisfaction
levels at the point in time, equates to the start value of his readiness to negotiate.
Under circumstances after the successful completion of contract negotiations
a signing on bonus for the player is to be paid.
The monies owed to the player is a one off payment and is paid directly
after the contract is signed.
Contract offer(s) from other club(s)
During second half of the season, when your player‘s contract expires,
all other teams can also submit a contract offer. If the player accepts a
contract offer from another team, then you there is no way to extend is contract.
In this instance the player will leave your team at the end of the season.
Every football player wants to play often as he can.
If he appears in most games on the bench, then the player will
be unhappy with his involvement in the team. It soon becomes clear
to the player that the only way to change this and find regular football
again is to switch clubs.
When a player is rarely used and his Match Practise value is under X
points, he will refuse to renew his contract.
If the situation does not change and negotiations regarding
a contract extension does not come to fruition, the player will
leave the club when his current contract expires.
Standardly, limit X
of match practise points is 55 points.
However, when a player is injured the match practice value at which
a player can negotiate a new contract is lower.
