Hi Eds.

I was wondering what is happening with Real and Barcelona now? You mentioned they wanted to get Dembele, Mbappe and Dybala, but now it looks like its hard for them to do any of that.

Do they have new targets now or are they just keeping their teams?

Also with Real, what are the chances they let Benzema or Bale go now? Are they still players they want to sell or are they keeping them?

Thank you :)

{Ed002's Note - I don't really understand the question - you seem to be mising up the targets of two clubs. And I cannot sensibly answer anything in relation to "what are the chances".}

Hi Ed002.

I just meant to ask what Barcelona and Real were doing if they couldn't get the players you've mentioned before. Who will Barcelona move on to if Coutinho or Dembele won't join? Who will Real move on to if Mbappe or Dybala won't join? Do they have other options basically?

The next part was just asking if you think its more likely if Bale and Benzema go or stay. Are they available to other clubs or has not getting Mbappe made Real want to keep them?

Sorry for the confusion and thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona have been offered Angel Di Maria, may look to Asensio's release clause and consider Jean-Michael Seri a reasonable option. Real Madrid maintain an interest in Eden Hazard, Alexis Sanchez and Antoine Griezmann and remain keen on Kylian Mbappe. Benzema will be able to leave if another forward arrives. A move for Bale is looking unlikely right now.}

Thank you once again for the reply Ed002.

I have a quick follow up question. Are Real open to let any other players leave? I know you've said Arsenal want a midfielder. Is there any possibility that someone like Kovacic, Llorente or Casimiro could be sold, or are these players Real won't let go either?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, obviously Coentraro, Pepe, Odegaard, Mariano, Morata and James have already gone. Kovacic is available but possibly priced out of a move. Llorente may well be moving - others such as Benzema may be available if players arrive.}

Morning Ed002. Thanks for the reply to this :)

Can I ask when you might do a sharkopod for the European teams?

{Ed002's Note - I am going to be in Monaco until Friday morning so the weekend at the earliest I would think.}

Cool. Looking forward to it. Enjoy your time in Monaco :)

{Ed002's Note - It will be a bit of a rush.}
