Tempting players with the right deal
Something that is becoming more common in real life football is deals being agreed outside of transfer windows, with players joining their new clubs the following season. It can help you use some of that transfer budget and prize money that goes to waste after the season ends.
It can be frustrating on Career Mode, when one of your star players decides to leave the club, and there is little you can do about it.
How many times have we seen in real life football players claiming to want to leave, but a week or two later, sign a big fat new contract. You should have the option to tempt them with a new deal, with older versions of FIFA, players asking you for a wage review if they were playing at their very best.
Older FIFAs also had an adjust ticket prices feature, meaning that if you were playing well or had a big match coming up, you could raise the prices knowing the game would sell out either way.
Conversely, if you are playing poorly, you can lower the prices to ensure you get more fans into the stadium.
The player manager feature was arguably better than the other two career mode options, with you being allowed to both manage the team and have your star man on the field.
It is a rarity in real life, but that didn’t matter when you were bending in free kicks with your player and making tactical adjustments.

So, when’s FIFA 20 coming out?
FIFA Street “VOLTA”
The biggest announcement from the latest version of the game is that FIFA 20 FIFA Street will make a return since it’s last appearance in 2012 called ‘Volta’.
You can play 3v3 Rush (no goalkeepers), 4v4, 4v4 Rush, 5v5 and Professional Futsal.
Customisation has already been confirmed in various ways. You can play on pitches with and without walls from an underpass in Amsterdam, to a neighbourhood cage in London and a rooftop in Tokyo.
There’s a story mode that allows you customise your avatar from gender, hair style, clothing tattoos, emotes and more. Like the old FIFA Street modes, you can build up your squad as you progress.
Volta is also supported online; you can use your team in Volta League or use a pro team in the Volta kick-off.
Volta is supported on all major platforms apart from Nintendo Switch (Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC).
