Hi Ed hope all is well. Would the appointment of solari on a 3 year contract rule out the possibility of Pochettino moving to Real? Would this open the door to the possibility of him being considered for the United job in the summer. Apologies in advance if this question is ambiguous.

{Ed001's Note - no, they can sack Solari at any time. He is only there because the people they wanted would not come at this time.}

Ed002, two questions:

1) Is there a likelihood that Real Madrid will sell Marcelo next summer?

2) Are Real Madrid interested in Alfonso Pedraza as Marcelo's replacement?

{Ed002's Note - (1) Yes, (2) No, Pedraza is not a left back and they have others in mind to replace Marcelo.}

ed is marcos alonso one of those madrid want.

{Ed002's Note - As I have explained I have no interest in discussing Chelsea players or Chelsea.}

Hi ED002, for how long are you going to punish all Chelsea fans? Please reconsider your stance on Chelsea as we have really suffered your absence/ abstinence just because someone/ few people abused you. It's even possible he/ they are impostors trying to ruin it for us the cfc fans.
I appeal to other club fans in the spirit of sportsmanship/ gamesmanship to intervene on ED002 to forgive us the Chelsea supporters and return to our page. We really miss all her/ his contributions which makes the tick.
ED002, I'm sorry if I shouldn't have posted this on this page but that's how passionate the majority of us missed you.
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - The problem is that as soon as I explain anything the abuse starts again. I have no intention of living with that at all at this time.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Nov 2018 14:39:40
Ilo, I fully agree with you. A few imposters and toxic fans are spoiling everything for us.

Having said that, I don't blame Ed002 for the stance he has taken. Nobody deserves to be abused for the good work he/ she does.

Ed002, do you get abuse on the European pages as well? If not, a handful of us Chelsea fans can use this page to get our questions answered. We will keep this secretive so that the abusers don't know about this.

{Ed002's Note - I have to be careful on the European pages as it has been known, but it is a lot less.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Nov 2018 16:51:19
We would be genuinely grateful if you can provide the Chelsea fans with valuable info. We promise that this will stay within these page.

{Ed002's Note - As I have explained - it is not worth the grief.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2018 16:01:04
I too understand your stance Ed as much as I wish it wasn't the case. Have you ever considered shaming the abusers? So us real fans know which posters don't deserve our time of day.

{Ed002's Note - Not worth the bother.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed know you don't like to talk bout chelsea, but is there any truth to rumors that valverede wants willian and there in talks and could offer malcom in deal for willian.

ed is there any interest in dembele as reports saying Barcelona told him to find a new club in january. is there any truth in these reports? thanks.

{Ed002's Note - A third party will try and find him another club. Potentially Barcelona could look to using him in a deal for another player.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Oct 2018 00:24:57
ed possible to ask who third party is? do you mean an agent? any player/ s in particular? also why are they looking to sell? thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant who the third party is. They are looking to sell be cause it has not worked out as well as they had hoped.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Oct 2018 09:30:06
Hi Eds, hope your all well just a query as I see a few mentioning the like of Alejandro Iturbe, vinicus jr and alvaro odriozola. I was just wondering if you have had any opportunity to watch any of these players and how much potential they really have. thanks you in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I can tell you only what others think. Alejandro Iturbe is just a child who Barcelona are expecting to sign. Vinicius Junior is seen as a very real talent that needs some nurturing but Real Madrid opted to purchase him earlier than planned because of the interest of an English side - he potentially has a very good future if he gets his head down and works at it. Odriozola is another very well thought of player and could have chosen Barcelona over Real Madrid - there were also two high-profile English sides keen but the player did not want to leave Spain.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

25 Oct 2018 13:46:54
Ed, do you think Vinicius should be brought into the first team since Madrid have only three wingers or should he keep playing with the Castilla side for now?

{Ed002's Note - They will gradually involve him more.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Oct 2018 23:10:33
Thanks eds.

Good day Ed, Mauro icardi has been in fine form for some seasonsv which of course get linked to host of other big clubs like Chelsea and Real Madrid. Please can you tell if any of them has serious interest considering they all seem to need striker.
Piatek start to the season has got everyone talking though I haven't seen much him. Please what do you think of him, can he live up to the hype in a big team and is there any big team interested especially in January.
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Inter will not be looking to sell their captain in January. Interested clubs have always had a concern about the level of grief Icardi and his wife may cause but may push for a move if other targets are not available - but there is still a certain third party looking to become involved and engineer a move for him to a currently uninterested club.

In terms of Krzysztof Piatek he has been improving year-on-year and this season he has been scoring at around a goal a game, but that obviously won't be sustained. Regardless, his performances last season were enough to attract scouts to POland and for offers to be made this passed summer. He opted for Genoa over Inter Milan as he did not want to be loaned out and he wanted to be a starter. His form this season has seen Inter Milan pushing Genoa to strike a deal, Napoli to propose a ridiculous offer that included a loan back but with payments spread over a very long period with all sorts of caveats, and very recently an approach from Borussia Dortmund.}

Ed who is the third party is and what interested club thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant who the third party is - and as the club is uninterested it makes no sense naming them.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2018 17:02:21
Ed002, when you talk about 'the level of grief that Icardi and his wife may cause', what do you mean?

{Ed002's Note - Is is not completely self explanatory? There is a vast amount of baggage that goes with them - talking to the press, making vast financial claims, talking about the "only" club he would sign for etc..}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2018 17:19:10
Oh okay, I was unaware about any other shenanigans apart from the one he pulled on Maxi Lopez and getting in a fight with the Inter ultras.

Ed002, what are Barcelona's plans for rebuilding the squad?
Which positions will they seek to address, who are the players they are targeting and who are the players they are looking to sell?
Thanks in advance, Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You will need to remind me on Thursday - I have a very hectic day tomorrow.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

17 Oct 2018 04:02:16
Alright, Ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Oct 2018 06:10:06
Ed002, just giving you the reminder that you asked for. :)

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona will be constrained to adding only one South American/non-Euro/non-Cotenau player without another leaving but in the bigger scheme of things they have an aging squad and they need to raise funds to support an ambitious plan to rebuild. They have been looking at and considering:

Jeroen Zoet (GK)
Alejandro Iturbe (GK) - Kiddie from Atletico that an English side have made an illegal approach for

Ferland Mendy (LWB) - seen as a cost effective Lucas Digne replacement if Juan MIranda is not ready to step up from the B squad - a good one for the future but Lyon will want too much for a player who could end up being used as cover
Mikel Balenziaga (LB) Athletic will sell for a small fee in January if they can and he would provide just the solution Barcelona need - Valverde wants him but others want to utilise B team players if they can and save money for starters
Marco Alonso (LWB) - only if Jordi Alba were to leave, but player is happy where he is right now
Alex Telles (LWB) - emerging as a favourite after Alonso if Jordi Alba were to leave but serious interest from elsewhere

Joshua Kimmich (RWB) - primary target
Moussa Wague (RWB) – a solution to step up from the B squad after losing out on Alvaro Odriozola

Matthijs de Ligt (CB) preferred choice and Barcelona will likely make an offer for MdL and FdJ as a pair in January - but MdL is very much a January target
Dayot Upamecano (CB) an option to MdL but seen as over priced
Unai Nunez (CB)
Malang Sarr (CB) - expensive Umtiti replacement – unlikely
Leonardo Balerdi (CB) if he joins he will be loaned back or sent on loan
Djené Dakonam (CB)

Frenkie de Jong (CM) remains a primary target
Adrien Rabiot (CM) - will look for a pre-contract in January and take the player in the summer
Paul Pogba (CM) Expensive, Barcelona will try and include a player in any move, some discussions with Mino but no approach to MU or formal offer and wages will be an issue (unless they can off-load Messi in 2020)
Saul Niguez (CM) interest dates back to a gentleman's agreement that cannot be invoked but seems to be constantly rumoured - not of interest any longer
Rodrigo Bentancur (M) very unlikely
Kevin Kampl (CM) - far down the list back
Aisar Illarramendi (CM) - cheap cover
Dani Parejo (CM)

Lucas Paqueta (AM) - Barcelona have looked again now that Coutinho has taken Portuguese citizenship (although UEFA could yet object) but the player has his heart set on a move elsewhere which is already tentatively agreed

Nicolas Pepe (RW) – interest is there but interest from elsewhere could win out
Cristian Pavon (RW/F) - staying where he is for now and then will likely head to Barcelona at some point
Mo Salah (RW/F) would have considered him, but not at the amount of money his agent wanted off RM and only without his required "unique contract clause" - right now the chance is near zip

Steven Bergwijn (LW/AM) - unlikely
Hirving Lozano (LW/F)

Antoine Griezmann (F) - to replace Suarez, looking unlikely with the player having other ideas.
Gabriel Jesus (F) as an alternative to Griezmann
Timo Werner (S) – unlikely as he is eventually expected to head elsewhere, but Barcelona have continued to scout him but it would need a change of style or him to adapt - hard to see where he naturally fits in
Roberto Firmino (F) has been considered as a potential addition and way down the list for both Barcelona and the previously considering Bayern Munich.
Neymar (F) Barcelona's Plan X is scrap everything, bring Neymar back.

In terms of players who could be leaving:

Jasper Cillessen (GK) - player wants to move to get a regular start - Barcelona will let this happen but there is a lack of interest - €35M asking price

Sergi Roberto (RWB) club want him to stay
Jorgi Alba (LB) - contract situation still unresolved and patience is wearing thin

Samuel Umtiti (CB) decision is that he is not up to scratch
Thomas Vermaelen (CB) time has come

Ivan Rakitic (CM)
Denis Suarez (CM)
Rafinha (CM) - available
Paulinho (CM) - Guangzhou Evergrande have an option to buy
Andre Gomes (CM)
Arturo Vidal (CM) Will make him available

Sergi Roberto (RWB)

Philippe Countinho (AM) Barcelona may be open to moving Coutinho on as it is not working out as well as hoped.

Malcom (RW) - the club will let Malcom go and use the fast progressing Carles Pérez as cover if necessary

Ousmane Dembele (W/F) - attempts to include him in a transaction for another player failed and with their need for money they will sell if the money is right, and at a fee below what they paid, or perhaps over paid for him. There are a number of other players available that might also help to raise sufficient funds for the changes they want to be made.
Paco Alcacer (F) - Borussia Dortmund have taken up an option to buy so he has gone
Luis Suarez (S)
LIonel Messi (F) expected to move in 2020

Ed002, thanks for this brilliant reply. Really love how much effort you make to provide some many details.

Would you be kind enough to clarify the two following doubts?

1) What is this "unique contract clause" that Mo Salah requires?

2) Will Neymar prefer a move to Barcelona or to Real Madrid?

{Ed002's Note - (1) Unimportant; (2) I don't know which Neymar would prefer.}

Which teams if any are interested in Umtiti Ed? Although I haven't watched too much of him (actually not been able to watch much footy if any lately) from whatever I have seen he looks a good player and more importantly to me he looks to be the best cb at Barcelona. Seems odd they will be happy to offload him.

{Ed002's Note - None and he has a major injury issue.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Oct 2018 07:01:55
Ed002, who is interested in Gareth Bale?

Ed002, Paco Gonzalez of Cadena COPE said that Real Madrid will look to buy Neymar, Eriksen and Rodrigo Moreno in the next two transfer windows.
If this is true, which players will Real look to offload in order to balance the books?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained at length what the Real Madrid plans are and how it is likely to take them longer that planned - why don't you call in to Paco Gonzalez's radio show and ask him?}

Ed 018 / Ed 001, Would real put in an offer for Hazard and will Chelsea hold on to him considering that the Xfer window for them is closed



Appreciate your input.

{Ed018's Note - I don’t expect anything to happen now. Hopefully Hazard will at some point sign a new contract but that might prove difficult to happen}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

Ed018
Is the problem that he wants to go to Real?
If that is the case are Chelsea in a repeat of Courtois where he will stay but want to leave in the Summer?
My guess is Real are not prepared to pay the current asking price but maybe interested in cut price deal next summer.

{Ed018's Note - sure it’ll certainly could go into next summer but Courtois wanted to move closer to his family. I won’t fault him for that. If Hazard signs a contract extension at some point this season I would think that would put an end to this. If he doesn’t and decides he wants to move on and Real Madrid come back in for him then yea I would guess he will be sold}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2018 14:58:02
Ed 018
The problem with leaving it until next summer is the affect that will have on his value I would imagine.
If he doesn't sign a contract this calendar year I imagine he will be leaving either in January or the Summer.
The only thing on our side is that if he does run his contract down he will be close to 30.

Agree0 Disagree0

Diego Godin Ed, any truth to a loan deal to MU?

I'm kinda surprised but is Vidal really moving to Barcelona and Modric to Inter? They're both very good players imo but both approaching the twilight of their careers so I'm just not sure whether teams are willing to pay large transfer fees and wages to attain their services.
