The Dutch Eredivise is a league with an impressive history. Dirk Kuyt and Gullit at Feyenoord, Robben and Suarez at PSV and Ziyech and Huntelaar at Heerenveen. However, no matter which name you look at, they all link back to one Dutch club.
Ajax. The blockbuster rulers of the Netherlands, a team clogged with talents and names that would fit at any club in Europe, a trophy speckled history that could rival Real Madrid, Manchester United or Barcelona. They have become a well-loved club for their ways of playing and the teams they build. Even today, the likes of Gravenberch, Onana, Mazraoui and Timber can be spotted in the starting lineup, all destined for greater things, with the first 3 of those names looking destined to go to Bayern, Inter and Barcelona respectively.
But this challenge will put these talents to the side, in the hopes of finding and building up new ones. The top 5 leagues will become the next destination for these talents, other leagues becoming the shipping port to Amsterdam. You will find talents in smaller leagues, sign them up, turn them into monsters, and sell them for a profit. Every season will be financial bliss, every lineup dotted with future talents. A UCL title awaits you, but so can the turmoil of having to lose your best players.
Only sign players from leagues ranked below the Eredivise (Top 5+Liga NOS are not allowed)
Cannot sign more than 2 players a season aged 25+
Have to sell any player rated 85+ if an offer comes in for them
Once a players potential maxes out, you can turn them into a club legend if they have played at the club for 3 or more seasons, otherwise you must sell them to the first club that asks for them, without negotiating.
Winning the league title is a must, a single season where it isn’t won is considered a failed challenge
Win the UCL at least twice in the whole save.
Sell Gravenberch, Onana and Mazraoui as soon as possible (you can negotiate their price)
