Iv agreed a deal with a potential signing and the update has gone through but he still hasn't signed. I assume another manager has a higher bid. How long until I can sign him if the other manager has not agreed terms?
There are 4 chances to agreeing a contract with a potential signing of a player during negotiations and these before 8am day 1, 8pm day 1, 8am day 2 and 8pm update. If you have agreed a contract at the 8am update on day 1 and you receive the email saying the player has agreed to your offer and after the 8pm update on day 1 you have not signed the player then you are not top bidder. I wouldn't pull out of a deal just yet as not only does it impact your transfer rating but there is still a chance the top/other bidders won't agree a deal for whatever reason and you get the player. There is still a slim chance that you sign the player if everyone else agrees a contract anyway, all is not lost.
One way or another, the transfer is sorted during the 8pm update on day 2 and you either sign him or you get an email saying he has signed for someone else or in a worse case scenario he has been withdrawn as the manager is no longer at the selling club
