Hello Ed02, If you are around mate.
I would like to know any interest on Luciano Vietto of ATM? He is not having a good season and has been on the fringe. Do you see him move this summer?

Thanks for the reply

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest in Vietto but Sevilla will look to a permanent deal.}

Thanks for the reply mate. Do you think he could be a viable option for Liverpool considering we looked at him in the past?

{Ed002's Note - No, they have no interest in him.}

Hey Eds,

Numerous media outlets are reporting Althletico Madrid have an agreement in principle or verbal agreement or whatever they are calling it with Lacazette, is the any truth to the reports? If so will this mean Griezmann is off?

{Ed002's Note - Atletico currently has a transfer ban they are waiting to hear the results of an appeal for. Whilst they have had long-time interest in the player and have spooken with his representatives they have not made any offer to Lyon at this time. They are after a centre forward and have an interest in otehrs but it is nothing whatsoever to do with Griezmann.}

Hi Eds

I understand he only moved to Manchester, but are any clubs still looking at Paul Pogba? Also would Barcelona be open to offers for Luis Suarez this summer?

Many thanks

{Ed002's Note - Nobody is interested and Pogba and the interest there is in Suarez won't result in a transfer this summer.}

hi eds is there any interest in Christian pavon of boca jrs and also ben swanson of Columbus crew atall ? and also is it likely for borja mayoral to be on loan again next season or sold by real ? thank you !

{Ed002's Note - Boca's Cristian Pavon was subject to an offer from Ajax in the January window. The offer was rejected due to the amount and structure of payments.

I am not aware of any interest in Ben Swanson.

There won't be any decision on Borja Mayoral until the end of the season but they have no intention of selling him.}

what kind of price would any team be looking at to take pavon off their hands ?

Thanks for response as well much appreciated

{Ed002's Note - They would be looking for something like €15M or so.}

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Mar 2017 10:30:11
I've heard very good reviews regarding Pavon, I think a move to one of Portugal big clubs be a smart one with a view to a elite European Club in the future

Just wondering Eds, is their any current updates on Boca Juniors Rodrigo Bentancur and River Plate Lucas Alario and Sebastian Driussi?

{Ed002's Note - Boca Juniors' Rodrigo Bentancur was to join Real Madrid in January 2016 but the deal could not be completed and Boca sold his rights to a third party. The third party will facilitate a move with Juventus, Milan, Benfica and Porto being interested. The player has also been looked at by PSG and Arsenal.

River Plate have discussed a move to China for Lucas Alario.

River Plates's Sebastian Driussi has drawn interest from Spurs, Nagoya Grampus and Ajax. But River Plate has no interest in selling and the player has no interest in leaving.}

{Ed002's Note - Watford has no interest in selling Adalberto Peñaranda and there is a lot of interest in Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon - the battle will be when he is able to sign a professional contract with Manchester City, Arsenal and Spurs all known to be looking for an agreement.}

The Uruguayan las palmas defender Mauricio Lemos, he's been linked with Barça and has release clause of £25m?

Have we been interested at all?

I'd love his compatriot Jose Gimenez but he's double the price!!

{Ed002's Note - No and the release clause is of relevance to Barcelona but not MUFC. And this is old news.}

Hi Ed002

Loving the Sharkopods today!

You said on the latest sharkopod that if Ath Madrid sell both Carrasco and Griezmann at the same time there is a possibility that all the funds would not be reinvested to the team, is there any chance one of them could be sold this window?

many thanks

{Ed002's Note - No not today.}

Martial is not liked by Mourinho, that is plain for everyone to see!

In his defence though I love him, but, could he be a bargaining tool for us in our efforts to sign Yannick Carrasco from Atleti? A player Mourinho obviously likes a lot!

Would any team actually be able to afford it without having to be sanctioned by FFP (or whatever)? I know you've commented on this before, Ed, that there perhaps should be some changing of the rules to facilitate transfers of high profile players or something?

It's hard to ever see him moving from Barca, except for maybe when he's coming towards the end of his career (like over the age of 35 for example, or around that).

{Ed002's Note - It would not be an FFP issue in any one year for a number of clubs but it would be an issue for any club looking to do any other significant business over forthcoming years unless they are in the handful of sides with significant earnings. And the amounts of money involved are well beyond significant. As I have explained before, although Barcelona have not been hawking Messi around, my expectation remains that Messi will be available and Barcelona would start looking to rebuild around Neymar from January 2016 when they can start bring players in again. And I expect that Barcelona will make Messi available from next summer - regardless of who the manager is at that time. Whether or not there would be any takers is another matter, and Barcelona are well aware of that and are looking at the sale of others to raise funds.

In the past Messi has turned down a transfer to one side who had agreed to meet Barcelona's then €250M price tag, and Barcelona and a commercial partner resisted an approach by a commercial organisation on behalf of an English side with an offer to buy, or at least part fund, the purchase of the player. I am aware that in Spain there has been speculation about an offer being made during the summer 2014 transfer window, but it is "largely" incorrect. This all started in 2012 when in mid December Anzhi made an offer to Barcelona that matched the €250M euro release clause that existed in his contract, and put up what I am told was a "very" significant personal package. However, Messi was not interested in a move to Russia and Barcelona did not want to sell - so Messi, in early February 2013, extended his contract with Barcelona. In the early summer of 2013 efforts were being made by Adidas to broker a deal that would get Messi away from Nike and to one of their three high-profile clubs that they were invoved with at the time. Very quickly Real Madrid were ruled out and with Pep Guardiola moving to Bayern Munich that pretty much saw the end of any chance of a move there (given the strained relationship) at the time. This left Chelsea, and I can confirm that discussions were held about making a firm bid - at this point we are in late 2013 and early 2014 and Messi was in a verbal spat with Barcelona about getting a further extension - which the club were against. Ultimately, the player was (at least in his eyes) available during the Spring of 2014 and at that point Chelsea and Adidas made his management representatives and Barcelona aware of what they would be willing to do to make a transfer happen. Since then he has again extended his contract with Barcelona and Chelsea and Adidas have parted company. I understand that again they see three possible destinations for the player but I am not going to get involved in any further speculation at this time – but one of those destinations is the new money of Manchester City. If the right money were offered to the club, then Barcelona would be open to selling - and if the package were good enough, the player would consider any offers. The difficulties include his tax issues and the vast amounts of money involved. Manchester City have already started to try and negotiate - they may persist else switch to Suarez.

A number of questions were asked of representatives of UEFA in December 2014 regarding the transfer of the financially very high-end players and the impact on FFP. It is clear that exceptions would need to be put in place as the alternative could be lawsuits from players regarding restrictions on trade. As such, it would not be an FFP issue in any one year for a number of clubs but it would be an issue for any club looking to do any other business over forthcoming years. And as I said, the amounts of money involved are well beyond significant.

There are also a couple of other matters that would need to be addressed before any move.}

Ed, I read that three PL clubs have expressed interest in Yannick Carrasco. Is Atletico open to selling him? If so, what clubs have been in contact?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any English sides making any approach to express an interest in Yannick Carrasco. PSG enquired but wen the Draxler route. Bayern Munich retain an interest but would not be happy at the asking price.}

Hi ed

Any clubs interested in Ivan Perisic?

Cheers

{Ed002's Note - Summer enquiries about the availability of Inter's winger Ivan Perisic were made of, but not by, Chelsea and Napoli by his agent who asked for clarity over the arrival of another winger at Inter. Spurs put an offer on the table for the player as a means of opening discussions with Inter - but they are not interested in selling. The player wants to stay and they all want to agree a new contract but that won't be before the summer.}

Question for Ed002 if you have a minute please.

With United looking for a future replacement for Carrick soon, I was just wondering what the situation is with Toni Kroos. Are Madrid looking to sell, is he looking to leave, would you anticipate any interest from Man United in the event he may leave?

Cheers ed

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid has already met with two clubs about Kroos (not MU) with a view to a move in the summer but the asking price is a major issue.}

Hey Ed I was wondering wondering if you could offer any idea as to what clubs might be interested in Joao Cancelo of Valencia. I know he had a great deal of interest before moving there from Benefica but I was wondering where things stand now. Thanks as always for your insight and hope you've saved up for all of your wives' holiday gifts!

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea spoke with Benfica about Cancelo in January 2014 but nothing came of it. I am aware that Valencia, Manchester City, Barcelona, Manchester United, Real Madrid, West Ham and Liverpool all took a look at him last season and it was Valencia who successfully made a move for him. Valencia are aware that Barcelona, Chelsea, Inter and Juventus are looking at the player this season and could be interested in taking the player in the summer. Manchester United had their interest in the player knocked back.}
