The stunning Bristol City transfer clauses in Bournemouth, Burnley and West Brom deals - according to Football Manager 24

Bristol City had a busy summer of incomings and outgoings and Football Manager gives an idea of what types of clauses may be in contracts.

Bristol City's summer transfer window will be most remembered for the big money sale of Alex Scott to AFC Bournemouth.

Robins fans knew Scott would depart the club at some point but had hoped he might have stuck around and fronted a push for the play-offs this season under Nigel Pearson, but instead neither at the club anymore. Pearson lost his job on the back of a poor run in form, however fans wanted to see the former Leicester City backed after Scott's sale, however we only saw the arrival of Taylor Gardner-Hickman and Lewis Thomas after Scott left.

Before Scott's departure, there was some good business done such as buying Jason Knight from Derby County, and he's arguably been one of the best players in the team, whilst Rob Dickie has slotted in to the City defence from QPR like a glove, and looks to be a good buy. We're still yet to see Ross McCrorie from Aberdeen after an injury in pre-season ruled him out until the least the New Year, having required surgery to rectify an issue.

Transfers are a small part of football management, and recently Sports Interactive launched their latest edition of their popular game Football Manager, and already players have spent countless hours on FM24.

Here, using the 2024 version of Football Manager, we take a look at the interesting payment plans and sell-on clauses inserted into the transfer deals and contracts of these current and former Bristol City players according to the world’s most popular management simulation.  (Please note that clauses provided by the game may not be true to life.)
