Hi Eds,

The Neymar thing is puzzling me a little.

I was under the impression that Neymar was seen as the future of Barca, that they were going to build a team around him and that if anyone was going to be "cashed in on" it would be Messi.

We all know just how much power Messi wields at Barcelona so I was wondering whether he has put his foot down once again and said he is not interested in going and everyone at the club is toeing the Messi line and are now considering letting Neymar go.

I may have this all wrong so i'm ready for the abuse if I am but it puzzles me that they would let Neymar go and not Messi. Messi is undoubtedly incredibly talented but at 5 years older than Neymar and still likely to command a similar, if not higher, fee at this point it would make sense to sell him to me.

Thanks in advance Eds, all the best.

{Ed002's Note - It is not related to Messi that a move is being considered but other matters.}

002, is it as simple as "Naymar wants to be the single star of a team" as we are reading elsewhere, or is it something deeper than that?

I'm not asking for specifics, just clearance on whether a footballer is actually that bothered about something which to others wouldn't matter a bit, while playing in one of the top teams in the world and winning trophies year on year.

Any update on the future of morata


{Ed002's Note - He is still expected to leave this summer but right now is not seemingly first choice for anyone.}

Sorry to bother you Ed. But I know your not answering questions re Chelsea for the time being, but thought maybe just this once, you could tell us who is Chelsea's first choice to replace Costa as and when he leaves the club. Thanks.

Hi Ed, hope you are well and Sparky isn't going insane reading Twitter posts all day.
Have a quick question for you if you don't mind;

Also about a month ago I read that MU and Juve had an interest in Toni Kroos so I was wondering if this was still the case or if anything had changed with that?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change.}

Eds, question on Deulofeu, what do you make of Barcelona resigning him? Seems an odd move to me for anything other than a "bargain bin" cup option due to the buy back clause.

On that note do you still see Turan moving?

{Ed002's Note - The plan was that he would leave as they prepared for a major purchase - but right now that isn't happening. So we wait.}

Hi Eds!

Any truth in the rumours Fabinho is signing for Athletico Madrid in January or is it just more tabloid click-bait?

Many thanks as always!

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure if there has been an agreement yet but there has been an offer made by Atletico.

Fabinho is in a slightly odd situation as he has moved from being a RB to being a DM player - and clubs were keen as a RB. However, Fabinho has been of long term interest to Barcelona who would have liked to have taken him at some point in 2016 but that interest had drifted and they have their eyes on someone else now. Monaco previously made it clear they were open to a sale but interested clubs, including Arsenal, had baulked at the asking price - set high as part payment will be due to Fluminense and Paulinia - although Chelsea were told initially by Vasilyev that Monaco want to keep Fabinho. However, this may not deter Manchester United turning their interest in to a firm bid - but the player has suggested it would be Manchester City that he would prefer if he was to move to England. Atletico Madrid maintain an interest and they could well agree to take the player, as they are doing with one or two others with a view to registering them in January. They know that it is far harder to buy in January so they will look to summer agreements and this is one they are very keen on. PSG provide another option but he would not be guaranteed a starting role.}

Hi ed002. Can i ask you if barcalona are looking to make a firm bid for veratti and if they wiuld be open to selling one of suarez or neymar to help fund investment for otjer areas in the swuad. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - A couple of clubs have spoken with PSG about Verrratti, including Barcelona, but they have been told he is not for sale. Barcelona remain keen as he is their first choice to replace Iniesta. PSG would be reluctant to sell without a replacement and would like to take Coutinho. Barcelona would indeed need to raise the money for the purchase if it could be made to happen. It is not out of the question that PSG might look to use interest in Verratti to leverage a deal for Neymar.}

Hi Ed's hope all is well,

Dani Ceballos got his name rising again following his u21 performance, just wondering is there any strong interest on him this summer? since i read he has a low release clause?

{Ed002's Note - Yes Real Madrid. Stop talking about "release clauses".}

Ed, I've seen a report stating that Ousmane Dembele is looking to move on from Dortmund after Tuchel has now left the club.
Are there any clubs looking to sign him this summer, and would Dortmund be willing to negotiate?

Thanks for any help. I just love Dembele.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona would like to take Ousmane Dembele this summer but I would doubt Dortmund would look to sell.}

Hi all, thanks to the eds as always.
Ed really appreciate the honesty in your last response to the other poster but this rumour has circulated before. The difference this time around for me is that Madrid at some point will want to look to the future and I can't see Ronaldo and Bale both being at Madrid in 1 to 2 years time so think there is a genuine chance one might leave this Summer. Can you provide any indication as to why Ronaldo might leave this window and if he does is there a genuine chance he might return to United?
Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Ed002, I'll leave this one here. With the top clubs being able to afford exorbitant transfer fees and wages. This forces mid table clubs to pay high wages for mediocrity and in turn makes lower league teams forced to pay transfer fees beyond their means. Can you see a change or a bubble bursting in the structure of most football leagues?

And like every institution that's ever been governed by money, it will burst. What happens then?

Thanks for your time!

Having won many titles with Madrid and is already in his early 30's do you see any chance Luka Modric will be considering a move this summer?

can any Eds update on Sandro has he signed a contract with AM as reported thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Sandro Ramirez has not signed with AM and can't until next year. Others remain interested but prior interest of Roma and Marseille has gone. Spurs remain keen on Sandro and Stoke has spoken with Ozcan - as has Newcastle, presumably via Rafa Benitez. Sevilla, Everton and Southampton are also interested and Everton has discussed the player with Malaga and they are confident they can reach an agreement. Malaga do not want to sell to Sevilla as they can get a better return elsewhere.}

cheers for the reply ED seen lots of media stories saying he had signed and will move in Jan don't really see the point in clubs getting transfer bans then being able to sign players on pre contracts.

{Ed002's Note - They cannot register players until their ban is over. They can do what Barcelona did and have players take time off.}
