Is there any firm interest in Saul Niguez? I think he is a cracking player, would love to see him in the prem. Any chance Eds?

{Ed002's Note - Yes there is interest from both Manchester sides but the asking price is a problem for both and the lack of CL football makes MU an unattractive option.}

22 May 2019 21:47:03
Ed do you think that CL football makes that much of a difference in a decision over a move? Does not playing for a big club not a big enough pull or is it money related?

{Ed002's Note - It helps a great deal.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi ed

Couple of questions if your able to answer.

Thomas Parteys agent has reportedly said a couple of clubs are interested in his client. Any truth in this that you know of.

Napoli president has said they have turned down €110m for kalidou koulibaly do you know anything of this.

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - (A) Inter Milan and Manchester City. (B) I am not aware of any such statement from Aurelio De Laurentiis.}

Just see it had been reported typical journalism ed curiosity just got the better of me.

Thanks much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - He has a lot to say normally, but I am not aware of anything like this being said. There is interest in the player, but they are looking to keep him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2019 18:45:13
Thanks ed I've read that Aurelio De Laurentiis is tough to deal with aswell so maybe the clubs that are interested in koulibaly might be better looking elsewhere, I'd imagine koulibaly will be very very expensive.

{Ed002's Note - Sure - if there were an offer that would be acceptable they would talk - and for some years Mr Mourinho saw him at the first centre back that he wanted.}

Agree0 Disagree0



19 May 2019 23:05:37
Ed002, pair of random names but both have had good seasons- any interest in Roger of Levante and Wissam Ben Yedder?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

Hey eds what's the latest on de ligt? Seemed nailed on for Barcelona but still lingering liverpool/ city/ bayern rumours. Is there a possibility he'll g anywhere but barca?

{Ed002's Note - The situation remains as it was - there is one matter to be resolved for the move to go ahead.}

16 May 2019 14:13:30
I was wondering if there's any interest in Pione Sisto from Celta Vigo? He's playing playing less and less this season and his level seems to have gotten quite a bit down, but I think I recall interest in him from a few big clubs a year ago?

{Ed002's Note - Southampton is the one side who have had sustained interest going all the way back to his time at Midtjylland and it was only them that sustained it after he move dto Spain. But it has long gone now.}

Hi eds,

Antoine Griezmann has just come out with news that he's leaving Atletico. Any idea where he's heading to? I'm guessing Barcelona but if I remember correctly, they're having trouble with finances and bloated wages.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, Barcelona is one option.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 May 2019 17:10:24
Who are the other options Ed? Are mufc interested?

{Ed002's Note - PSG.}

16 May 2019 16:33:53

thanks ed surprised there's not more interested teams, very good player.

05 May 2019 14:36:05
Hey Ed001, what was your opinion on Fabregas as a player?

{Ed001's Note - excellent passing range and vision but very little else. When played high up the pitch for Arsenal, he was at his happiest because he was removed from having to work hard defensively. That for me is why he never achieved as much as he should have, he was lazy off the ball. It meant his team was almost playing with ten men when they didn't have the ball. That was fine in the 80s Serie A, as players were not fit enough, in the main, to be asked to work that hard. In the modern era you have to work off the ball as well as on it or your team can be overrun. That is why he was never quite able to lock down a place at Barca, they demand players work hard.}

Morning Ed's,

What is the plan for Laxalt this summer? Is he on the move?

{Ed002's Note - He will leave Milan and join Atalanta I very much expect.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Who are Atletico Madrid Targeting? usually hear about players rumoured to leave but rarely the incomings.

{Ed002's Note - Something like this:

Thibault Courtois (G) if Oblak rejects new contract

Aissa Mandi (RB/CB) Juanfran replacement

Alex Telles (LWB)
Wendell (LB)
Nicolas Tagliafico (LB) looking more and more unlikely

Ruben Dias (CB) Godin replacement
Diego Llorente (CB) has been watched by Marseille, Spurs, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, West Ham, Fulham and Sevilla since joining Real Sociadad in the summer - Spurs could be tempted as they expect TA to leave
Matthijs de Ligt (CB) moving elsewhere
Dayot Upamecano (CB) priced out of a move to AM

Hector Herrera (CM)

Joao Felix (AM) - priced far out of the market unless Saul is sold for his asking price

Richarlison (LW) - if Griezmann leaves
Lorenzo Insigne (LW) price is seen as too high

Mauro Icardi (S) May look to a Thomas Partey plus cash deal
Edinson Cavani (S) a Diego Costa replacement

Jan Oblak (G) AM will look to him staying

Diego Godin (CB)

Juanfran (RB)

Filipe Luis (LWB)
Lucas Hernandez (LB)

Thomas Partey (DM) - no approach from Manchester United but an approach from Manchester City turned away. Confirmrd Ghana coach had suggested Manchester United as a destination in November. Inter interest went with a price rise sometime last year but could return if AM push for Icardi.

Rodrigo Hernandez (CM)
Saul Niguez (CM) - possibly priced out of a move

Gelson Martins (RW)

Antoine Griezmann (LW/F) Could move in January 2020

Diego Costa (S)

Will Atletico try to hold on to Rodrigo or are they trying to get rid of him?

{Ed002's Note - They are not "trying to get rid of him". There are sides who are very interested in him and there have already been talks with the player wanting to leave - and he will.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2019 23:53:48
Ed 002, where would Oblak look to go if he left?

{Ed002's Note - He has several options, not least Bayern Munich.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 05:30:39
Ed002, a two part question about Inaki Williams

1) Which clubs are interested in him?

2) I read that a PL club wanted to buy him in January? Is it true and if so, which club was it?

Thanks in advance, Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest in him.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

04 Apr 2019 15:45:21
ed who is interested in mario hermoso thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Mario Hermoso (CB) - Real Madrid have an option to take him back at a fixed fee seeing him as cheap cover. They were going to take him in January to see the season out and then decide what to do with him in the longer term - but the player fears the lack of game time there.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Apr 2019 15:10:22
Ed is it true varane wants to teave? And who is interested thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It drags on rather but Real Madrid may be willing to let him leave for the right price as part of their major rebuild programme which has seen them add another CB for the summer already and they are chasing another younger CB as well. The long term interest is from Manchester United but they have other targets now.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Mar 2019 14:53:14
Ed001 or Ed002, will you be kind enough to answer this question?

Why are Real Madrid looking to offload Toni Kroos? I mean he is considered one of the best midfielders in the world and his partnership with Luka Modric played a pivotal role in Real Madrid's success.

{Ed002's Note - Both players are available to be sold as they need space in the squad and funds to help with their replacements as they are one of a number of clubs who are rebuilding.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Apr 2019 14:38:12
Alright. Thanks!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Mar 2019 21:24:24
Now that it seems likely Barcelona will allow Coutinho to leave, who would be interested in actually signing him?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

28 Mar 2019 11:22:53
PSG if they keep hold of Neymar then they are best mates. He is affordable to most big clubs!

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2019 19:38:02
Ed002 good evening. Hope all is rosy in your garden.
Id like to ask if you have heard of any sides looking to buy any of these 3 players who i enjoy watching or hope to see play regularly for a good side to fulfil their potential.
Kroos is his time up at madrid?
Kurzawa i know he was injured but fit now and out of the team at psg he was in great form begore his injury i'd like to see him back playing
Finally samedo at Barcelona. He has never broken into the team there and has stagnated somewhat.

{Ed002's Note - (a) Inter but they cannot get close to the price and PSG who see the price as too high for his age. Madrid want to sell. (b) Spurs still have an interest. (c) Not looking to leave.}

Thanks as always Ed002.

20 Mar 2019 10:19:02
Hi ed any truth in the rumours city are close to signing Saul Niguez?

{Ed002's Note - Saul's new agent has been discussing a move with Manchester City after Barcelona stepped back from being interested.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

20 Mar 2019 10:57:30
That’s a shame. Thanks very much ed.

Hi Eds.

Is Antoine Griezmann looking to leave Atletico in the summer? If so, which clubs do you reckon will be in the running for him.

{Ed002's Note - There has been no indication that Griezmann will leave in the summer and no clubs has shown an interest for a move this summer. There is interest in him moving next winter subject to certain issues being resolved.}

21 Mar 2019 10:44:31
Thanks for the response Ed002 as always.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2019 18:43:17
ed with Barcelona still interested in de ligt, would that mean a cb being sold on? if so then who?

{Ed002's Note - Two is more likely - Samuel Umtiti (CB) decision is that he is not up to scratch - to be sold when fit and Thomas Vermaelen (CB) time has come. They have already agreed in principle to sign a couple of younger players, one a CB and want to add a second in MdL.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

11 Mar 2019 19:08:37
ed which young cb?

{Ed002's Note - It really is unimportant and nothing to do with MdL.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Mar 2019 19:59:14
ok, ed who is or would be interested in umtiti? thanks.

{Ed002's Note - it depends when he is fit.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jan 2019 19:56:08
Ed 002, with Barcelona buying De Jong and likely to sign Rabiot, are there big changes coming to their mid field if not the whole squad?

{Ed002's Note - The will be changing a lot of the squad and will soon have a new coach.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

24 Jan 2019 20:48:13
Who are the potential outs and do they have someone in mind for a manager?

{Ed002's Note - Most could potentially leave as hace been explained - and yes they have a very firm preference for a new coach. You can expect a lot to change in the coming year or two.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jan 2019 13:52:16
Could i be greedy and ask who the firm preference is Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Quique Setien.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jan 2019 14:15:38
Thanks Ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jan 2019 20:22:27
Amazing choice, looking at his management record, do you have any opinion as to why they would chose him? Ed001 perhaps?

{Ed001's Note - because Betis play the best football in Europe right now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jan 2019 21:04:04
i better start watching then so, thanks.

{Ed001's Note - they are well worth watching. They are really attacking.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jan 2019 22:59:56
I think Atalanta would give them a run for their money! Play against each other and it would probably end up 8-8 or similar!

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 09:58:58
With Valverde extending his deal at Barcelona does this mean Setien to Barcelona is off?

{Ed002's Note - For now at least.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2019 15:14:44
Ed, any update on the transfer of Frenkie De Jong of Ajax? I heard he was PSG bound but now looks like Barcelona have won his signature? I thought Barcelona had to sell before they bought anyone in! Thanks ed002.

{Ed002's Note - As I said in the Sharkopod, Frenkie de Jong was the primary target and the player has agreed the move sometime ago and the delay was with Barcelona trying to get the €80M asking price reduced. Barcelona do need to keep the books balanced and make space in the squad and wage bucket.}

23 Jan 2019 19:34:34
Can I be cheeky Ed002 and ask if there is any truth in the Coutinho to Chelsea rumours please? If you don't want to, that's fine. But just thought I'd ask. Much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Coutinho will be available to be used in a part exchange or to be sold but I am not aware of any Chelsea rumours.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jan 2019 10:35:57
Ahh damn. Thought he could do well in this setup and under Sarri’s guidance. Thanks for the reply Ed002. Again much appreciated.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2019 17:03:07
Ed whos interested in lobotka thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Stanislav Lobotka was of interest to Inter but they were priced out of a move; Leicester as an option to Mohamed Elneny; Milan who have gone for a different option; Fiorentina, but not as first choice; Napoli have had interest for a while and may push this month; PSG but they have three in front of him and one lower cost solution in their list of DM targets.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

21 Jan 2019 01:44:01
Ed can i ask who the 3 options are and the lower cost option thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It is all in the Sharkopod.}
