Ed002, pardon my ignorance. I was under the impression that players could only sign contracts for a maximum of 5 or 5,5 years. But now I see Koke has apparently signed an extension that ties him to the club until 2024. So that's a 7 year contract. How is that possible? I'm curious to know.

{Ed002's Note - Koke does not play in England.}

Can the clubs on European mainland give out contracts of longer duration then? I thought it was the same for everybody. That's interesting.

ed002 if you are around, has there been some development with regards to griezmann staying or leaving athletico, he has become awfully chatty in last 1-2 to days, or is it just griezmann being griezmann.

Im awfully confused Ed, on the Manchester City page you say Kroos is 'likely heading elsewhere' but here you say there is no team looking to sign him?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, he is available and likely to end up elsewhere. Simple enough.}

Hi Ed,

Just noticed you put something regarding Pep not being impressed with Sterling. Would there be any european or prem interest in the player? I personally think the lad has great assets to his game (speed,pace, technique etc) and would love to see him tear it up abroad.

{Ed001's Note - not at the wages and price he wants.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

20 May 2017 14:58:45
Cheers ed for the reply. In your opinion, how do you think Sterlings future will be resolved?

{Ed001's Note - I expect him to stay personally for next season. But he is likely to be phased out of the team.}

20 May 2017 17:38:18
Thanks Ed, always appreciate a valued opinion!

Now, it may not be transfer related, but could one of the Eds kindly tell me just how good the Brazilian Ronaldo was? Never got to see him play, such a shame!

{Ed001's Note - you should look up footage of him, he was extraordinary. The best out and out striker I have ever seen play the game. Pace, power, skill and he made scoring look easy. You can't possibly emphasis enough just how good the lad was.}

Ed do you know if he ever came close to moving to the PL? Often wonder how players like him, Rivaldo, Zidane etc would have fared in the PL?

{Ed001's Note - yes he did, when he was at PSV he had a lot of offers. I am not sure about the other two but Ronaldo would have tore the Prem to pieces.}

Agree1 Disagree0

20 May 2017 08:32:35
Yeah he would have been a class above everyone at the time. It's ridiculous to think he still underachieved due to his injuries. If he hadn't done his knee when he moved to Inter he'd probably be seen as clearly the best player ever rather than being remembered as just one of the best ever. His hat trick at OT for Real Madrid is one of the best performances I've ever seen from an opposition player.

{Ed001's Note - he was one of those players you went along to watch play, no matter what team he played for or who they were against.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2017 14:27:17
Best striker in the 90s and early 00s, if it wasn't for injuries and weight issues towards the end of his career, he be easily a top 10 all time player

20 May 2017 16:16:03
His 12 month at Barcelona where extraordinary not sure he ever reached them hights again but you would pay to watch him

i remember watching him in 2010 for corinthians. i was a huge fan of his. even had that weird hair cut as a kid. but i have never seen a fat man and he was fat in 2010 do what he did. flicks, shimmys, dummys i mean he was slow but he still scored 10 amazing goals out of 12. i still remember him cutting in, 10 yards outside the box, didn't even look up to see where the GK was and chipped him from that distance. man will always be a LEGEND

Good morning eds. Do you know what maybe happen in the summer for inaki williams and also birminghams che adams ? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Athletic Bilbao are aware of interst in Iñaki Williams following an approach by Galatasaray and scouts from Manchester City, Napoli, Juventus, Valencia, Liverpool, Dortmund, Arsenal and Everton attending matches to watch him this season. They have made it clear that they do not wish to sell and have extended his contract - but they expect a bids from Napoli (who have already had several discussions about Williams, and (only if they cannot obtain another target) Manchester City in the summer. Interest of Dortmund and Juventus has moved on to other targets.

I can't help about the Birmingham player.}

Ed001

Can I ask your opinion on the following players that MU have been mentioned in ed002s sharkopod as I have no knowledge of them whatsoever wondering what you think of them.

Aaron martins
Marcelo Brozovic

Appreciate it (that's if you can help)

{Ed001's Note - Aaron Martin I have actually looked at a fair bit, it is me ma's maiden name and one of the most common surnames in Spain apparently, but I tend to just keep an interested eye on anyone with that surname or my own. He looks a very good attacking fullback, bit raw, needs to work on his defending but he seems willing to learn. To be honest, I am very surprised Barca have not gone for him, he is much better than Jordi Alba. One of the better options out there, in my opinion.

Brozovic I like, he spent a couple of seasons on loan at Inter before they completed his loan move and he stood out for them. Arsenal have been tracking him for years, so I have a feeling he will be another one that Wenger will be telling everyone he spotted first but just never signed him, like he has done with just about every other good player around! He is technically excellent, from what I have seen of him. Needs a better team around him than he has at Inter.}

{Ed001's Note - I think so, yes.}

11 May 2017 18:06:47
What other teams are interested in Brozovic ed?

{Ed002's Note - Spurs. Arsenal and Chelsea have been keen before and may be interested now that he is available. Interest of Zenit has gone.}

Hi ed's - after watching the CL last night I was wondering why Barcelona let Dani Alves go? He has performed at a high level all season and is certainly better than the right-back he was replaced with - why did he end up leaving for Juventus? Cheers

{Ed001's Note - lots of reasons, wage demands, his performances had dropped and they wanted to look more long term. Plus his attitude was not the best there. It must be said they looked to have it spot in for the first half of the season, Dani Alves did not start off well at all.}

Hi eds, thought this might be the best page to ask this question. I was just wondering if the reports that Madrid may be willing to cash in on Bale following his recent injuries are true? If so, has anyone shown interest in him?
Also one other question, has ronaldo ever come close to leaving Madrid in the past and is there any plans to potentially move him on anytime soon as I see below there is talk of a major rebuild.
Cheers
Caolán.

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest in Bale right now. Ronaldo will move on next season I would think. If it were this, PSG would be interested but they have someone else in mind now.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

06 May 2017 23:00:02
Cheers for the quick reply Ed002. I would definitely have him back at Old Trafford!

{Ed002's Note - It makes very little sense now and would stiffle a rebuild - a lesson learned from ZI. Find the new Ronaldo, not the old one.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2017 23:21:47
Think that's just a case of heart ruling the head. Cheers for the reply again!

I agree with this ed teams need to move forward but do "fans" allow time for a new ronaldo I personally would but it seems now that if they haven't scored 30 goals or got a 9/10 rating every game in their first season they want them sold.

It's the same in regards to management and I do agree with the expression toxic fans.

Sorry about the moan 😀

{Ed002's Note - It is OK Dave, I understand.}

I see the Fiorentina chairman has been putting some pressure on Federico Bernardeschi, via the Italian press, to sign a new contract.

Is there any update on where he may move to? I seem to remember Inter and Chelsea were interested.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea very keen but Fiorentina don't want to sell but their hand could be forced by someone coming even close to their outrageous asking price - and there is interest from PSG and Inter as well.}

What do people here feel about Zidane's time in charge of Madrid?

Personally I am unimpressed, his team's play a terrible brand of football, which Rafa Benitez was hounded out for. They basically rely on individual genius to win games, which they can do as they have Ronaldo, but it is not good entertainment.

His team are up against no one, as Barca are in utter chaos, a shambles and Atleti are having a terrible season, yet they are still not sure of winning La Liga.

If he was anyone other than Zizou, he would already be looking for a new job.

{Ed002's Note - He may yet be replaced this summer - not winning La Liga or the Champions League will lead to some serious discussion about his tenure.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 May 2017 17:02:39
Just like you said ed1, the team isn't performing at the level it should be with all the players he has at his disposal. Also he hasn't improved them that much than how they were under Rafa, just that he has been lucky. Avoiding big teams in the Champions League and Barcelona having are very poor season might see his team winning major trophies but he is time at Real Madrid has been pretty an inspiring.

Ed2 could you share with us who Real have in mind in case they part companies with Zizou at the end of the season.

Thanks

{Ed002's Note - They don't have anyone in mind but Mauricio Pochettino will certainly be considered.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 May 2017 08:31:41
A little bit harsh considering that potentially they could go back to back on Champions League, a first in a very long time

But that's Real Madrid for you

{Ed001's Note - they are terrible to watch though shane. That is not how Real Madrid want their team to play, wholly reliant on one player pulling them out of the mess each week.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 May 2017 09:00:33
Madrid is one of those teams where you can't make everyone happy, too much unrealistic expectations, they should concentrate on enjoying this moment since their keys players are getting older now and probably got another 2-3 years left in them

{Ed002's Note - You are right in that they know they will have some major rebuilding of the team in the coming years.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 May 2017 11:23:09
Ed1
It's been covered on the United site but how good are this madrid team with out the brilliance of Ronaldo.
Many hold them up as the standard to reach , but take 1 very good player out and they are half the team

{Ed001's Note - agreed mate. It is all about Ronaldo, which makes it all the more bizarre that the Madrid fans boo him!}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2017 14:41:42
Hi Eds - just wondering about any interest in Benzema? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - A difficult time looms for the player and he has had to deal with the Real Madrid fans turning against him because of his questionable form this season. Expect him to sign a new deal but be available still. Arsenal may be one option but I suspect they will look to Lacazette as a first choice. Milan has another first choice in mind but could turn to Benzema. PSG is less likely now.}

Hi ed

I see on the arsenal page that MU are considering a bid for Sergej Milinkovic Savic I was wondering is he MUs first choice midfield target?

Also is a new contract a smart tactic from Lazio to get a top price for him?

Much appreciated

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United were told about a month ago that he would be signing a new contract but that has not ended their interest - but they know that the chances of a transfer are now slim. He was certainly the first choice and they will likely put their efforts elsewhere now. I would think you will see Kroos come to the fore.}

Hello ed001, could I get your opinion on a few players I barely get to see. They are Kroos, Asensio, Marcelo and Douglas Costa. All highly rated so I was wondering if they're as good as people make out. Cheers mate.

{Ed001's Note - Kroos is a bit like a slightly downgraded Xabi Alonso. Good on the ball but nowhere near as effective defensively.
Asensio is still a kid and I have only gotten to see him make sub appearances to be honest. He does tend to make an impact from the bench though.
Marcelo is someone I am not a fan of at all. He is the modern day full back, awful defensively, good going forward, but not good enough to be an actual winger. Oh and he likes a dive. As modern day left backs go, he is one of the better ones, but I would just rather have a more effective defender or attacker than this type of player.
Douglas Costa was excellent last season, but this season he is not as settled and has had a poor season. At his best he is an exciting winger with a good left foot, like most wingers these days he likes to cut in from the wrong side and shoot more than cross, but he does have a very good cross on him at times. He is a bit erratic though. Could be just down to his pace, as many with that kind of pace struggle to be consistent with their delivery as they forget to slow down before playing the ball.}

Any interest in Real Madrids Marcos Llorente or Mariano Díaz Mejía?

{Ed002's Note - Marcos Llorente has been of interest to PSG and Arsenal but Real Madrid have no intention of selling and want a new contract. Liverpool made an offer to Real Madrid for striker Mariano but the player was not interested in leaving Madrid at the time. It remains to be seen if Liverpool would still be interested in the Summer should he become available - and that will likely be driven by others leaving and his future becoming clearer.}

Hi Eds. on the best managers list you said that greizman will/could be leaving in the summer. Could you elaborate on that and tell us who is looking likely to sign him? Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - lots of teams are showing interest, he is looking for a Premier League move out of preference. Though Chelsea have stepped back, the Manchester teams haven't.}

Thanks for the quick response Ed. Appreciate it! So it looks like a two way race between ourselves and City. Hopefully we can get a deal done! Can you tell us if he is UTD's first choice for the forwards position? Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - he certainly was last year, but now his constant talking to the media might have changed that. As far as I am aware they still want him badly though.}

Ed1 do United have any alternatives to Griezmann in case we can't get him for whatever reason?
Thanks

{Ed001's Note - every club always has alternatives. Kane is still wanted, though I think that is extremely unlikely at the best. Belotti is the one I would expect them to go for, from what I have been told. Azmoun and Luan have been looked at as well, though I would expect both have been discarded as options. Raul Jimenez is another that has been tracked. I also wouldn't be surprised if Kramaric becomes an option, though he flopped at Leicester, Mourinho had wanted him for Chelsea and he has revived his career since leaving the Foxes.}
