Morning Ed's,

What is the plan for Laxalt this summer? Is he on the move?

{Ed002's Note - He will leave Milan and join Atalanta I very much expect.}

Who are Atletico Madrid Targeting? usually hear about players rumoured to leave but rarely the incomings.

{Ed002's Note - Something like this:

Thibault Courtois (G) if Oblak rejects new contract

Aissa Mandi (RB/CB) Juanfran replacement

Alex Telles (LWB)
Wendell (LB)
Nicolas Tagliafico (LB) looking more and more unlikely

Ruben Dias (CB) Godin replacement
Diego Llorente (CB) has been watched by Marseille, Spurs, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, West Ham, Fulham and Sevilla since joining Real Sociadad in the summer - Spurs could be tempted as they expect TA to leave
Matthijs de Ligt (CB) moving elsewhere
Dayot Upamecano (CB) priced out of a move to AM

Hector Herrera (CM)

Joao Felix (AM) - priced far out of the market unless Saul is sold for his asking price

Richarlison (LW) - if Griezmann leaves
Lorenzo Insigne (LW) price is seen as too high

Mauro Icardi (S) May look to a Thomas Partey plus cash deal
Edinson Cavani (S) a Diego Costa replacement

Jan Oblak (G) AM will look to him staying

Diego Godin (CB)

Juanfran (RB)

Filipe Luis (LWB)
Lucas Hernandez (LB)

Thomas Partey (DM) - no approach from Manchester United but an approach from Manchester City turned away. Confirmrd Ghana coach had suggested Manchester United as a destination in November. Inter interest went with a price rise sometime last year but could return if AM push for Icardi.

Rodrigo Hernandez (CM)
Saul Niguez (CM) - possibly priced out of a move

Gelson Martins (RW)

Antoine Griezmann (LW/F) Could move in January 2020

Diego Costa (S)

Will Atletico try to hold on to Rodrigo or are they trying to get rid of him?

{Ed002's Note - They are not "trying to get rid of him". There are sides who are very interested in him and there have already been talks with the player wanting to leave - and he will.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed002, a two part question about Inaki Williams

1) Which clubs are interested in him?

2) I read that a PL club wanted to buy him in January? Is it true and if so, which club was it?

Thanks in advance, Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest in him.}

ed who is interested in mario hermoso thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Mario Hermoso (CB) - Real Madrid have an option to take him back at a fixed fee seeing him as cheap cover. They were going to take him in January to see the season out and then decide what to do with him in the longer term - but the player fears the lack of game time there.}

Ed is it true varane wants to teave? And who is interested thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It drags on rather but Real Madrid may be willing to let him leave for the right price as part of their major rebuild programme which has seen them add another CB for the summer already and they are chasing another younger CB as well. The long term interest is from Manchester United but they have other targets now.}

Ed001 or Ed002, will you be kind enough to answer this question?

Why are Real Madrid looking to offload Toni Kroos? I mean he is considered one of the best midfielders in the world and his partnership with Luka Modric played a pivotal role in Real Madrid's success.

{Ed002's Note - Both players are available to be sold as they need space in the squad and funds to help with their replacements as they are one of a number of clubs who are rebuilding.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Apr 2019 14:38:12
Alright. Thanks!

22 Mar 2019 21:24:24
Now that it seems likely Barcelona will allow Coutinho to leave, who would be interested in actually signing him?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

28 Mar 2019 11:22:53
PSG if they keep hold of Neymar then they are best mates. He is affordable to most big clubs!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2019 19:38:02
Ed002 good evening. Hope all is rosy in your garden.
Id like to ask if you have heard of any sides looking to buy any of these 3 players who i enjoy watching or hope to see play regularly for a good side to fulfil their potential.
Kroos is his time up at madrid?
Kurzawa i know he was injured but fit now and out of the team at psg he was in great form begore his injury i'd like to see him back playing
Finally samedo at Barcelona. He has never broken into the team there and has stagnated somewhat.

{Ed002's Note - (a) Inter but they cannot get close to the price and PSG who see the price as too high for his age. Madrid want to sell. (b) Spurs still have an interest. (c) Not looking to leave.}

Thanks as always Ed002.

20 Mar 2019 10:19:02
Hi ed any truth in the rumours city are close to signing Saul Niguez?

{Ed002's Note - Saul's new agent has been discussing a move with Manchester City after Barcelona stepped back from being interested.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

20 Mar 2019 10:57:30
That’s a shame. Thanks very much ed.

Hi Eds.

Is Antoine Griezmann looking to leave Atletico in the summer? If so, which clubs do you reckon will be in the running for him.

{Ed002's Note - There has been no indication that Griezmann will leave in the summer and no clubs has shown an interest for a move this summer. There is interest in him moving next winter subject to certain issues being resolved.}

Thanks for the response Ed002 as always.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

11 Mar 2019 18:43:17
ed with Barcelona still interested in de ligt, would that mean a cb being sold on? if so then who?

{Ed002's Note - Two is more likely - Samuel Umtiti (CB) decision is that he is not up to scratch - to be sold when fit and Thomas Vermaelen (CB) time has come. They have already agreed in principle to sign a couple of younger players, one a CB and want to add a second in MdL.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

11 Mar 2019 19:08:37
ed which young cb?

{Ed002's Note - It really is unimportant and nothing to do with MdL.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2019 19:59:14
ok, ed who is or would be interested in umtiti? thanks.

{Ed002's Note - it depends when he is fit.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jan 2019 19:56:08
Ed 002, with Barcelona buying De Jong and likely to sign Rabiot, are there big changes coming to their mid field if not the whole squad?

{Ed002's Note - The will be changing a lot of the squad and will soon have a new coach.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Jan 2019 20:48:13
Who are the potential outs and do they have someone in mind for a manager?

{Ed002's Note - Most could potentially leave as hace been explained - and yes they have a very firm preference for a new coach. You can expect a lot to change in the coming year or two.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jan 2019 13:52:16
Could i be greedy and ask who the firm preference is Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Quique Setien.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jan 2019 14:15:38
Thanks Ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jan 2019 20:22:27
Amazing choice, looking at his management record, do you have any opinion as to why they would chose him? Ed001 perhaps?

{Ed001's Note - because Betis play the best football in Europe right now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jan 2019 21:04:04
i better start watching then so, thanks.

{Ed001's Note - they are well worth watching. They are really attacking.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jan 2019 22:59:56
I think Atalanta would give them a run for their money! Play against each other and it would probably end up 8-8 or similar!

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 09:58:58
With Valverde extending his deal at Barcelona does this mean Setien to Barcelona is off?

{Ed002's Note - For now at least.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2019 15:14:44
Ed, any update on the transfer of Frenkie De Jong of Ajax? I heard he was PSG bound but now looks like Barcelona have won his signature? I thought Barcelona had to sell before they bought anyone in! Thanks ed002.

{Ed002's Note - As I said in the Sharkopod, Frenkie de Jong was the primary target and the player has agreed the move sometime ago and the delay was with Barcelona trying to get the €80M asking price reduced. Barcelona do need to keep the books balanced and make space in the squad and wage bucket.}

legend, Thanks Ed002.

23 Jan 2019 19:34:34
Can I be cheeky Ed002 and ask if there is any truth in the Coutinho to Chelsea rumours please? If you don't want to, that's fine. But just thought I'd ask. Much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Coutinho will be available to be used in a part exchange or to be sold but I am not aware of any Chelsea rumours.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jan 2019 10:35:57
Ahh damn. Thought he could do well in this setup and under Sarri’s guidance. Thanks for the reply Ed002. Again much appreciated.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2019 17:03:07
Ed whos interested in lobotka thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Stanislav Lobotka was of interest to Inter but they were priced out of a move; Leicester as an option to Mohamed Elneny; Milan who have gone for a different option; Fiorentina, but not as first choice; Napoli have had interest for a while and may push this month; PSG but they have three in front of him and one lower cost solution in their list of DM targets.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

21 Jan 2019 01:44:01
Ed can i ask who the 3 options are and the lower cost option thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It is all in the Sharkopod.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2019 19:35:33
Hi Ed002 I've seen Bruno Fernandes' name popping up recently do you know if he's of interest to any clubs at the moment? Would be interesting to hear if clubs at CL level would want him or believe he can reach that level?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

08 Jan 2019 19:01:06
Ed001, what do you make of Real Madrid’s courting of Brahim Diaz? Is he that good?

{Ed001's Note - not really but they are desperately in need of a rebuild and the fans want Spanish players. He is not bad like, but it is a sign of how weak they have become that they went to such lengths to get him.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

08 Jan 2019 20:21:05
Thanks, I suppose he hasn’t played enough to do a player profile. This rebuild is going to be brutal for Madrid fans, I can see a few years without a trophy.

{Ed001's Note - I will have a look and see if I can find enough footage to do one.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2019 21:21:15
Mighty, thank you.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2019 10:38:38

With Koulibaly signing a new contract, does that mean he is unlikely to move this January/ summer transfer window.

With the recent racism that he has received, is the player wanting to move?

I'd imagine if he was available, that he would cost more than VVD.

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - He is happy where he is and not available.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

07 Jan 2019 15:19:33

With the rumours of Coutinho being linked to utd showing up in the papers, would you know of any interest from Manutd?
I can't believe it myself, as Pogba (although on the way out) has been playing much better since Mou going and should surely be kept until the summer?


{Ed002's Note - No.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

07 Jan 2019 16:25:20
Thank you Ed 👍.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2019 05:21:11
Ed002, in the Sharkopod, you talked about Real's interest in Neymar and Hazard.

If Real manage to offload both Asensio and Bale, is it possible that they make a move for both Hazard and Neymar?

Or will they buy one of the two along with a right winger like Salah or Suso?

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid are looking for first team adaptable wide players and a high end striker in addition to have already added a young LW player. So signing Neymar and Hazard would not be discounted. Regarding Suso, interest gone after being advised by a third party he is not good enough for them.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

05 Jan 2019 23:42:28
Ed002, mind saying which club is meeting Real for Rodriguez this week?

{Ed002's Note - Juventus.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

04 Jan 2019 21:06:07
Ed002, what is the short-term future of Real Madrid's Javi Sanchez? Will he be one of RM's 4 centre-backs next season or will he leave on loan?

{Ed002's Note - He will play for the B side and may get a cameo in a cup.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

01 Jan 2019 16:27:07
Hi ed002 happy new year to you.
Are any clubs showing interest in coutinho from Barcelona?
I think its fair to say that things havnt worked out for him there.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody is knocking on the door Ken, but he becomes a token that can be exchanged.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

02 Jan 2019 14:38:05
Thanks 002.
Im no transfer expert but on the face of it, it looks to me that they over paid substantially for both coutinho malcolm and dembele in particular and that they have not lived up to their billing.
As you say using them in part exchange for other players might be the way they can get them moved on.
2 very good players i don't know much about malcolm.
I thought city might be interested in coutinho and psg dembele.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City have never shown an interest in Pipco Ken.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jan 2019 15:43:43
Cheers ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jan 2019 05:41:28
I agree Ken, the last few windows signings haven't been as successful as what everyone thought for Barcelona. And they haven't come cheap either with Counting and Denver being very huge outlays. Will these failings have a more long term effect? And the bigger issue is not many teams seem keen to take them away either and even then not many can pay anywhere close to what Barcelona bought them for. A situation little similar to Pogba, not many sides able to outright buy them and player exchanges might be best option.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jan 2019 15:51:02
Damn this autocorrect. I meant Coutinho and Dembele not Counting and Denver.

{Ed002's Note - The escalation in prices mean that trades are becoming more viable at the higher end.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2019 18:23:31
I totally agree ed002 and deeps.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Dec 2018 20:39:53
Any interest in Asensio? doesn't seem to be having the best time at Madrid.

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Dec 2018 15:35:31
Ed002, who is interested in Junior Firpo?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester Cityand when Wenger was there Arsenal. Regardless Real Madrid are getting the required funds together to resolve their left back problem by buying him.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Dec 2018 13:53:36
Ed is anyone interested in saul niguez and would they sell thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United have shown an interest although Atletico would avoid selling to REal Madrid and Manchester United's interest would have left with JM.}
