It is clear that change the squad needs transfers to rejuvenate the team to churn out some winning performances. Arteta has said himself that the club needs to rebuild the relationship with the fans - "We play for them [the fans]. At the end of the day, they're expecting a lot from us. We have to give them enjoyment, we have to make their lives better and when we win, they will be better because they will be happier. It's our responsibility and we have to do everything we can to achieve that. First, I think I need the players and if I can convince the players, afterwards we can convince the fans. I think it's a very, very important part of my job. Energy is everything, in life, in football and in sports. If we are able to generate this, it will give us a lift."

​The one wonderkid that, let's face it, most try to sign on FM20 is Norwegian striker Erling Håland. Recently, it was announced that Håland will join Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. With the departing Håland who has scored 17 goals in 16 appearances leaves FC Red Bull Salzburg but with Red Bull's numerous teams New York Red Bulls, Red Bull Brasil, Red Bull Bragantino, RB Leipzig, Red Bull Ghana, and FC Liefering building a team for the future should be the challenge if you decide to take the manager's position at FC Red Bull Salzburg.

Take advantage of having Håland while you can, but bear in mind if you start with updated database then Håland's transfer might be set as a future transfer meaning you'll have to plan for his departure.
