Ed any truth in the rumour that stones has turned down a move to Barcelona

jred

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

Ed can you give us any info on which teams could be looking to buy morata

jred

{Ed002's Note - Morata remains of serious interest to Real Madrid who would like to re-sign the player (possibly for the purposes of resale or exchange) but Juventus are looking for a way to keep him unless a replacement is found - Berardi being one possibility and Batshuayi another - although a previous agreement is now very much up in the air. There is also interest in him from Chelsea and Arsenal in London (although he is not first choice for Arsenal) and from Dortmund - who Real Madrid hope are open to a deal involving Aubameyang - again something that is very much up in the air again. Morata would certainly be be open to staying in Turin but know that they Juventus would need to discuss the buy back clause with Real Madrid and extend it if necessary. Interest of Manchester United would be dependent on a number of factors but cannot be discounted.}

Ed002,

I know you don't answer arsenal questions but seeing as the Euros are upon us I thought you might let one through.

If morata isn't first choice does that mean Vardy is and can you see Vardy joining Arsenal?

Thanks in advance mate all the best

{Ed002's Note - Vardy is indeed for choice and I can certainly see him moving and Leicester are actively working on a replacement. I cannot guarantee this will happen.}


3.) 10 Jun 2016 22:02:29
Thanks for the reply Ed, have a good weekend mate


4.) 11 Jun 2016 00:39:36
Ed02 if u don't mind if vardy deal don't happen please can u tell me which other targets Arsenal are looking at for striker position? Thanx

{Ed002's Note - I am not getting in to providing details about Arsenal for reasons that have been explained.}


5.) 11 Jun 2016 13:40:44
ED002 I take Morata is aware that RM want to buy him, to then only sell him on for a profit?

I suppose if they cross his palms with silver he may be willing to accept it, but are there any restrictions stopping RM from buying him and selling him in the same transfer window considering he will have moved to 3 teams so to speak.

{Ed002's Note - No, there is nothing wrong with this if that is what they wish to do and the player agrees. However, circumstances right now are shifting and it is becoming a little less likely to happen.}


6.) 11 Jun 2016 14:32:17
Cheers ED002.


7.) 12 Jun 2016 10:35:37
Ed I'm not looking for specifics but from Morata's standpoint would he benefit more from being bought and sold by Madrid? I'm just wondering why he'd agree to that unless it would be beneficial to himself.

{Ed002's Note - Why are you bothered by it? It is of zero relevance.}


8.) 12 Jun 2016 11:03:40
Thanks Ed 👍

Ed you have said sergej Milinkovic Savic was or is united first choice cm can I just ask is this a player that Jose has picked and wants or is more a case of a player that the club have identified

jred

{Ed002's Note - That is not really how it works I am afraid.}


1.) 09 May 2017 13:15:56
Ed1 touched on it on the United site in regards to bailly but if you have time in , how does it work ?

I've always wondered how much input a manager gets , is he building a squad or is it more a case of him coaching the players the club buys .
If you have time it would be much appreciated

{Ed002's Note - It will vary but is is a collaborative process involving scouts, advisors, the coaching staff and manager etc..}


2.) 09 May 2017 13:24:25
Cheers Ed final question , who gets the final say

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't work like that - someone could block it if they really wanted.}


3.) 11 May 2017 18:13:11
That would be an interesting and hugely frustrating way to make Fifa/ Football Manager etc more realistic


 

 

01 Mar 2017 18:44:47
Ed could you tell me which teams are showing an interest in belotti

jred

{Ed002's Note - Torino will look to a significant offer in order to sell Andrea Belotti and know that Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal have had the player watched repeatedly and have made general enquiries with his agent. Other sides have had scouts attend games to watch him, Adem Ljajić and Joe Hart. Torino will hold out for as close as they can get to his €60M termination clause - few clubs would have the stomach to pay that. I suspect that a number of clubs scouting games and credited with interest in Belotti were actually looking at Joe Hart. Manchester United and Chelsea have also had scouts watch him.}

Thanks ed

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}


 

 

09 Jan 2017 13:17:49
ed are any teams looking at Kostas Manolas this jan

jred

{Ed002's Note - Roma spoke with Chelsea about Manolas. As far as I know they have spoken with no one else about him. They will only sell at a ridiculous price.}

I expect you won't answer this and understand if you don't but the couple of factors you mention is one of those factors Ibrahimovic as everyone assumes it's a done deal where as I don't think it is (yet)

Appreciate anything you share

{Ed002's Note - One of those is indeed Ibrahimovic. To be honest Dave my expectation is that Morata could well end up being part of the package for Pogba and could well end up staying in Turin in any case.}


2.) 11 Jun 2016 10:47:42
Excellent ed appreciate that

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Dave.}


3.) 12 Jun 2016 12:46:47
Ed have you any info on Ibrahimovic. I thought he might of signed for Manchester United before the euro's

{Ed002's Note - Nothing was ever going to happen before the Euros.}

any truth in the rumour that allegri could move to chelsea

jred

{Ed002's Note - Of course, but note he is contracted until 2017 and then he is looking to take a job to 20122 in accordance with a previous agreement. There are lots of people who could move to Chelsea - but not Guardiola.


1.) 05 Feb 2016 11:43:59
Is the previous agreement up in the air at present Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes it is.}


2.) 05 Feb 2016 12:19:42
Has this up in the air state effect Allegri's desire to fulfil said previous agreement even if things were to settle down or is it previous agreement as in gone? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - You would have to ask Allegri how his desire is today. I don't know.}


3.) 05 Feb 2016 12:27:27
Ok no worries, thank you Ed, much appreciated.

Ed1
It's been covered on the United site but how good are this madrid team with out the brilliance of Ronaldo.
Many hold them up as the standard to reach , but take 1 very good player out and they are half the team

jred

{Ed001's Note - agreed mate. It is all about Ronaldo, which makes it all the more bizarre that the Madrid fans boo him!}
