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.}

Ed would you say it's pretty safe to expect Atletico to remain pretty static for the next year and a half, as eveidence by their stance on Griezzman?

{Ed002's Note - What happens with Atletico depends on whether they go to the CAS like Real Madrid are. There have been discussions over Griezmann recently but unless the ban shifts forward one windo, little will happen.}

ED002 You mentioned in the summer that Kroos would almost certainly be moving on and that City would be the club buying him. What changed? Did ZZ persuade him to stay? Is the deal now completely off or postponed?

{Ed002's Note - PSG interested Real Madrid cut short discussions with interested clubs when it became evident that the replacement they were interested in would not be viable. Real Madrid have a ban to deal with now so I would not expect him to go anywhere.}

Hi Ed,
If you wouldn't mind answering, what is the thing with RM buying players (big players- players for large sum of money) and than trying to move them on in couple of years.
Do they not consider them being standard they are/were looking for even though they paid lots of money for them and are well recognised players?
Is it Perezes politics ( galactico players) or constant change of managers that want different players.
Players I had in mind roben, sneider, di Maria , isoco, kroos, khedeira, James (columbian), benzema.

Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid are looking to constantly improve and see all players as transient - which they are. Managers/coaches at Real Madrid have some input but do not define the transfer policy. Going forward, and assuming CAS do not deal with their appeal before the end of December, I would expect Real Madrid to make changes again in January. If CAS do uphold the ban before the end of December then Real Madrid will look to secure players for when the ban ends. So the turnover is driven by desire rather than policy.}

Are there any teams interested in Antoine Griezmann Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Sides remain interested but those discussing him with AM in the summer were told nothing can happen for two years now - given their ban.}

Hi ed002,you mentioned before the window that r madrid were looking to add a few players but only morata signed. was this because they could not move on players? Zz is happy with his squad? Or they are confident of over turning their ban so no need to refresh the squad?

Cheers, and great work throughout the windiw.

{Ed002's Note - They had some issues moving players on but they tried very hard to add two significant players (one for now and one for next summer) at the end of the window - but were unable to.}

Hey Ed002, hope you're good, just wondering if there is anything new with regard to James Rodriguez, as always I'm grateful for your time, of course if for any reason you can't reply that's fine too. Hope to see you back on our page after the window closes.
Cheers.

There's a lot of paper talk about Gabriel Barbosa, apparently scored over 600 goals at youth level and following in the footsteps of Neymar.
Is he all he's cracked up to be and is he likely to get a big move anywhere this summer?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

19 Aug 2016 10:17:44
Only seen him on YouTube and in the olympics but he looks special. Linked with Juve, Barca, Chelsea, United and Leicester. Think Ed002 said a while back to be patient and we'll soon find out what will happen with him. Looks like a move is likely but not sure where to, my money would be on Juve

Hi ed, I know you have said you don't expect him to move any time soon but who are the clubs that have interest in Griezmann, have any clubs enquired over him this summer or do you know of any clubs that may push for him next?

Also is Saul Niguez happy to stay at Atletico Madrid? for some reason even tho he only recently signed a new contract, I thought he wanted to leave this summer?

Thanks ed/ s!

{Ed002's Note - Atletico has no intention of selling Griezmann unless a very significant fee is offered. Whilst Griezmann has said on a number of occasions that he has no plans to leave Spain anytime soon, he has said he would be interested in a move to Chelsea if the opportunity arose in the future - and whilst that still stands, he wants to stay at Atletico for what will likely have to be two years with an impending issue which will impact the club. PSG and perhaps Bayern Munich would also be very interested if he became available. PSG will not be in a position to do any sort of deal unless some very adventurous other plans they have fall through, but they are desperate for a high-end French player and he might move to the fore as a target. Bayern Munich look to have found their desired player elsewhere and I would think can likely be ruled out. Chelsea pushed for a deal for Griezmann and discussions continued with a third party representing Chelsea but were told there would be no sale and he has signed a new contract - but a recent discussion was again held and if he comes on to the market they could return with another proposal. End of the day - I suspect he will stay in Madrid for two more years.

Saul Niguez is of speculative interest to Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester United and Bayern Munich but a move was not viable past summer and in January Atletico Madrid told the two clubs who enquired (Manchester United and Barcelona) that they have no desire to sell. Manchester United had scheduled a January meeting but the club cancelled it because of the toxics. The player has repeatedly insisted he has no interest in leaving Spain and the reason for speculation was that the player and the club were unable, at that time, to agree the terms for a contract extension. An offer from Arsenal was rejected out of hand but Barcelona may well step in with a bid but the player and his agent want the Premier League, the profile that brings and the money - and approaches have been made to Chelsea and another side - but the fee is very high.}

Could you expand on PSG's very adventurous plan Ed? Is it signing a top player? Would that player be Ronaldo, Messi or Suarez?

{Ed002's Note - It is of no relevance to this matter.}

Ed02 are any teams looking at aymen abdennour? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Not right now. Chelsea has had a long term interest but are wary of the player having his heart set on a move elsewhere and both Bayern Munich and Dortmundhave dropped their previous interest.}

Just out of interest do you expect any big outgoings from them. I saw from another ed morata and benzema they're open to selling and keep seeing in papers about jese, Rodriguez send Isco they wouldn't mind selling. Not asking for a update on all of them just if you can see any big sales from them

{Ed002's Note - Yes, players will be leaving.}

Sorry yeah, a better question would be. do you expect him to move from juve before window closes?

Hi Eds,

I just wanted to ask if there was any new info on a potential move for Edinson Cavani?

I know he was a little unsettled at PSG last season, I think due to him being played out of his preferred position. I thought that the departure of ibrahimovic would have settled that but thought I saw an ed comment recently that he could still move this window.

Thanks for your time.

{Ed002's Note - PSG were willing to sell Cavani last summer and he was offered to a number of sides who had previously shown an interest. Atletico Madrid were planning sales to fund a bid for Cavani but nothing came of it - but space, price and wages would be an issue and their interest is elsewhere. Right now, Chelsea has no immediate interest in the player as they have other targets - again, price and wages will deter them. Juventus were certainly interested but have their answer from elsewhere. He was part of the package offered by PSG for Pogba, as was Verratti - but Juventus were looking to a deal they could control. Inter are keen but don't have the money without selling and PSG will not be interested in a loan to buy. It would not be a surprise to see Real Madrid try and get involved again but they have do have other targets and with a ban looming age could be added to the concerns.}

Ed
Where do you think Laczette and Griezmann will play at next season? Will they move this window?
Thank you.

{Ed001's Note - I personally think both will stay put. While the club are happy to sell Lacazette, he is being priced out of a move. Though towards the end of the window clubs do become more desperate to sign someone, so it could change!}
