Wondering if there is anything happening regarding messi, I believe his contract runs out end of season if I'm not wrong, has he not signed it yet as he's considering his options?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing is happening right. He has an offer and his contract runs out this season as you suggest.}

Ed002, I was wondering whether Atletico are planning to offer Jose Gimenez a new contract or whether there's interest in him as he's in his final year of his current deal. Thanks =].

{Ed002's Note - There has been interest from Juventus, Arsenal and Manchester United as Jose Gimenez was struggling to make the Atletico starting line up – but they are planning on a new deal.}

Question for ed2 if I may, with la Ligas top guy moaning about psg buying neymar and complaining about city and peg. How enforceable is ffp. I get that there is certain criteria to adhere to but surely this can be manipulated. Whose to say how much a sponsorship deal is worth from a related company or indeed the parent company. Transfer pricing etc can look at this but as I say whose to say what a fair market value is. Surely then ffp is a waste of time as there are loopholes for rich organisations/ conglomerates?

{Ed002's Note - FFP is enforceable and working OK. Clubs abuse it and they get fined, banned etc.. I am not sure how you think it can be manipulated - everything is decalred and accounted for. There are no loophoes.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

07 Sep 2017 13:50:51
it can be abused by artificially boosting the revenues in the club by setting up a sponsorship deal between the club and one of the related companies. This then makes the business seems profitable and negate any FFP issues. Easily done. I'm sure the guy from la la liga was saying that PSG had declared more sponsorship income than united, which is rubbish, they'd never get that externally. Accounts can easily be manipulated, especially when part of a larger organization.

{Ed002's Note - no Tom, that is all controlled.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2017 18:01:38
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, but how would they control it? It happens everyday in practice with other, non football related organisations. As I say, who can say what a fair sponsorship value is. Only asking out of interest. I'm more passive in my view of it (oil rich companies buying football clubs and ploughing money in) started with Chelsea, then city and now Psg. Was Monaco at one point but they moved to investing in youth (smart move based on the business they did this summer) . There was also that Russian team (I forget their name) that matched Messi's release clause.

{Ed002's Note - All of that was before FFP Tom. Cliubs who have abused it (Manchester City and PSG from your list plus dozens of others) have been penalised. I don't think you understand about the sponsorship money.}

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Sep 2017 18:39:56
Probably not. I guess all I was saying is that if a club is having a problem balancing their books it would be easy for them to recharge into the parent company (or a related company) for something such as sponsorship or management charges or something along those lines to increase revenue and therefore the bottom line, so they comply with ffp. I just don't get how that would be controlled. But I guess I maybe missing something.

{Ed002's Note - No, it doesn't happen like that and nor can it. You are indeed missing something.}

With athleti transfer ban being up in January my 1st question is do you see them signing Diego Costa? My 2nd question is do you see greizmann leave in January and whether man United still hold an interest?

Thanks in advance ed .

{Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid were close to signing Diego Costa on Friday but played up wrecking the deal. Clubs do not generally look to business in January but Diego Costa may be a player they look to again. Griezmann is less likely to move in January than in the summer but with Vitolo available it is perfectly possible that Carrasco might be available - and I am aware of one club who are keen. With Manchester United adding Lukaku and making the dumb decision over Ibrahimovic then the need for Griezmann goes away unless there is a plan to push him out to left wing where he has now transitioned away from. So perhaps Griezmann would be an option for next summer (unless MU again sign Ibrahimovic), perhaps they will look to buy him and waste him on the left in January or perhaps they will look again for a left winger in January - we will have to see.}

Hey Ed002, Eli here. I was just wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing the team interested in Carrasco. I think he's a really good player and one the could perhaps still mature in his play transforming him to a great player that any team would love to have.

Thanks for your time as always.

Question directed to the omniscient Ed002. Were Barcelona able to get their alternative target to Coutinho? If not, do you suspect them to continue holding an interest in Coutinho and try again in January?

Name: Abbassep

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona nearly signed Angel Di Maria but that would only have addressed part of their problem and they still need to replace Iniesta. Whilst they would ideally like Verratti or Coutinho they have effectively moved on and have reverted to a Plan B and will see how that goes first. They also, internally, are being pushed at another option who would not be available until next summer at the earliest. But by then politics may well have shifted matters somewhat.}

Would that be Eriksen Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Would what be Eriksen?}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2017 02:12:43
Think he meant if Eriksen is next on the list now that Verratti and Coutinho are out of reach Ed002. Maybe they will turn to Eriksen, Dele Alli or make another move for Seri.

{Ed002's Note - No the Spurs players might be considered as futured options but they are not in the picture right now. Plan B is to integrate Carles Alena in to the team slowly as a potential Iniesta replacement. Interest in Verratti will very probably fall behind interest in
Thiago Alcantara. Barcelona will investigate the potential return of Thiago as an Iniesta replacement next summer regardless of him signing a new contract this year.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2017 08:45:46
Are Barcelona looking to move turan on?

I remember a podcast of arsenal I believe where ED02 said there could be interest?

Possible Sanchez replacement maybe?

{Ed002's Note - Yes they will let him leave.}

Afternoon edds. Can you give any details on the meeting with representatives considering Barcelona and Juve over Andre Gomes, is the player unhappy and are Barcelona keen to move him on? As he's not really performed well there has he? You previously stated very unlikely now I'm assuming circumstances have changed?

{Ed002's Note - Andre Gomes is on the surplus list for Barcelona and they want to sell him. There is interest from elsewhere but Juventus want a loan. That does not suit Barcelona. Me Des knows this and has asked Juventus to look to a purchase or a loan to buy (no option) - which will suit Barcelona if completed by next June only.}

{Ed002's Note - Yes they have players they would be willing to sell.}

Goodevening Ed002;
Would Mateo Kovacic be a player that Real Madrid is looking to sell?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Initially yes, and they still would be open to include him in a deal to assist in the capture of a high-end buy, but it looks less likely as time goes by. Whilst I suspect he won't be sold unless used as part of an exchange for a high-end player from elsewhere the clubs who have shown an interest (perhaps Spurs may be thinking about him) could yet creep above the parapet.}

Hi guys/ EDs,

Apologies if this has already been answered, I've tried the search function but couldn't find the answer.

What is the latest with Cancelo? I have seen the footage of him after a game getting very emotional, people suggesting that it was his last game. Has he been sold to Inter, and Kondogbia gone the other way on loan?

Thanks in advance and great job on the site!

{Ed002's Note - Cancelo and Kongdogbia are due to switch clubs today on loan to buy deals - but the paperwork will take a few days.}
