FIFA 21 Leaks Suggest Massive Change To Financial Takeover

With gamers doing laps of the pitch in anticipation of FIFA 21, EA Sports is doing all it can to try and put the lacklustre memory of FIFA 20 behind it. While there are changes across the board, new leaks suggest the Financial Takeover element of the popular football sim is going to get a complete overhaul.

In previous FIFA games, the Financial Takeover sum has been around £50 million across transfer and wage budgets. Prepare to head all the way to the bank because the latest reports claim you can now ask for your own amount up to a whopping $500 million. Well, that will do nicely. If you want your club to be up there with the richest of the rich, now you can.

We already knew Career Mode would be getting a revamp, with the official description reading: "Customise your Career Mode with new initial set-up options. Get a more true-to-life experience of negotiating signings on the transfer market with Authentic Transfers, or boost your team’s starting budget to help you build your squad with Financial Takeover".

Now, FIFA CM Content shared a tweet with four screenshots - showing how the budgets have increased and you can literally ask for whatever you want - well, up to $500 million.

Alongside explaining how you can ask for $500 million, the tweets also revealed you can have the featured turned off completely, meaning you won't get the added boost of investment if you want to have a harder time becoming the next Sir Alex Ferguson. On the whole, players seem to be embracing the feature.

One fan wrote, "I think is good if you like a more narrative approach to career mode. For instance, pretending a millionaire bought your favourite team and that kind of stuff". Another added, "Rate this. Sometimes you want a certain narrative in career mode. Should provide greater choice to what clubs you move too as well. Would love to finish my managerial career with the team I started but it's always PSG, City, Real etc. As options". 

FIFA Career Mode

Although some have scoffed at the idea of asking for such ridiculous budgets - claiming it will ruin Career Mode - it's a much-needed boost for those clubs that are struggling financially. Mainly, it looks like smaller clubs will be able to grab the headlines and we won't just be confined to seeing the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea holding their own at the top.

Other changes to Career Mode include pushing the retirement age closer to 40 and the fact you'll start with at least one scout and player in the Your Youth Academy. Overall, the pitch notes and early impressions prove EA has learned from the mistakes of the past when it comes to Career Mode *cough FIFA 20* and that it is doing its best to improve the fan-favourite mode.
