January deals are done for gamers looking to test their coaching ability with the most up to date squad lists, or those who need a fresh start

Tired of Oscar tearing you to pieces when facing Chelsea, or fancy your chances of bringing the best out of Gabriel Jesus at Manchester City?

Well, the latest Football Manager update could be right up your street.

The latest  update for the popular video game has been released, and it includes all of the deals done during the winter transfer window.

That means there are a few more familiar faces in the Chinese Super League than there were previously, while some big-money moves have been made at leading clubs in Europe.

In the real world, Pep Guardiola is currently having to do without the goalscoring instincts of Jesus after seeing him pick up an untimely knock on the back of a positive start to life in England.

You, though, can still call upon the Brazilian forward should you wish to test your coaching ability with a Premier League title bid at the Etihad Stadium.

Elsewhere, there are plenty of star turns to be carefully managed in the new surroundings of Ligue 1.

Aguero will strike against Sunderland

Julian Draxler, Memphis Depay and Dimitri Payet were all on the move in January, helping to strengthen the respective squads of Paris Saint-Germain, Lyon and Marseille.

The update obviously will not be to everyone’s liking, as there will be gamers that have spent wisely in the transfer market to acquire talents those in the professional ranks have overlooked.

For many, though, this is an opportunity to wipe the slate clean, forget about the tactical mistakes of the past and start afresh with a new-look squad moulded by those who are supposed to know what they are doing.
