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.
Cheers.

ken

{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.

Hi ed002 happy new year to you.
Are any clubs showing interest in coutinho from Barcelona?
I think its fair to say that things havnt worked out for him there.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Nobody is knocking on the door Ken, but he becomes a token that can be exchanged.}


1.) 02 Jan 2019 14:38:05
Thanks 002.
Im no transfer expert but on the face of it, it looks to me that they over paid substantially for both coutinho malcolm and dembele in particular and that they have not lived up to their billing.
As you say using them in part exchange for other players might be the way they can get them moved on.
2 very good players i don't know much about malcolm.
I thought city might be interested in coutinho and psg dembele.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City have never shown an interest in Pipco Ken.}

Cheers ed.

I agree Ken, the last few windows signings haven't been as successful as what everyone thought for Barcelona. And they haven't come cheap either with Counting and Denver being very huge outlays. Will these failings have a more long term effect? And the bigger issue is not many teams seem keen to take them away either and even then not many can pay anywhere close to what Barcelona bought them for. A situation little similar to Pogba, not many sides able to outright buy them and player exchanges might be best option.


4.) 03 Jan 2019 15:51:02
Damn this autocorrect. I meant Coutinho and Dembele not Counting and Denver.

{Ed002's Note - The escalation in prices mean that trades are becoming more viable at the higher end.}


5.) 05 Jan 2019 18:23:31
I totally agree ed002 and deeps.

Hi
ed002
Do you know if any teams have shown any
nearest in demble or from Barcelona?

ken

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine.}


 

 

29 Jun 2018 18:19:48
Right never thought of that thanks ed,
Do they need to move mina or smother non eu player on to bring in Arthur ed?
Hopfully united follow up that interest in kroos.

ken

{Ed002's Note - They are constrained with the number of non EU players they have putting aside the Cotonou Agreement. Arthur is not relevant to the matter directly.}


 

 

29 Jun 2018 16:43:58
Hi ed002. I've only seen mina play a few games but he looks like a very good player.
Do you know why barcelona are willing to let him go so soon specially after the effort made to secure him?
Secondly ed is there any interest in kroos at Madrid. I think you said they would be prepared to listen to offers for him.? i'm sure at the price required their would only be a handful of clubs that could afford him.
Cheers.

ken

{Ed002's Note - (a) Because of him being a non-EU player. (b) As has always been the case, Bayern Munich and Manchester United.}

Hi ed002. Lazio have had a disappointing season. Is there still a lot of clubs interested in SMS. I've watched him a lot and he is very technically gifted and is still plaguing well in my onion without quite hitting the heights of last season.
I know united juve and madrid held varying degrees of interest last year.
Thanks.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Milan and Real Madrid remain keen. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (CM) will likely be priced out of a move unless Milan can be creative - and it looks like they will try to be; Madrid lost out on FdJ and see him as a less grief option to Pogba. JUventus will almost certainly have a new coach and already have two other targets they are keen on ahead of him.}


1.) 23 Mar 2019 10:17:50
Thanks ed002.

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

Hi again ed002.
You mentioned on anther page that allegri may move in tje summer.
Do you know if juve have a new coach lined up for next season?
Who do you see as the top candidates for the juve job if Allegri does leave. ?
Have a good evening.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Zidane or Deschamps}


1.) 27 Feb 2019 20:22:14
Thanks ed. i'd be surprised if deschamps moved before the euro finals but it would be a tough job to turn down
Thanks as always. Ed.


2.) 09 Mar 2019 01:58:33
Hi Ed002, what about Pep Guardiola?

{Ed002's Note - In respect of what?}


3.) 09 Mar 2019 15:25:37
Going to Juve? There's been a few news stories about Pep replacing Allegri.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of that. They are very keen on Zidane.}


4.) 11 Mar 2019 18:38:10
Deschamps it is given today’s news (if Allegri moves on)

{Ed002's Note - These were candidates. I think if everything is going to be misinterpreted I will avoid dealing with coaches.}

Hi Ed 002. Hope all is good and that you are not travelling too much.
Can i aak about icardi at inter? What did you think will happen, will he move to a new club In the summer?
His wife seems to create a bit of a circus around him and will that put potential clubs off. No suitors will want that sort of baggage.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Right now there is no interest from Spain and it has been a struggle for England and Italy to find a reasonable solution going forward.}


1.) 21 Feb 2019 16:20:10
Cheers ed.

{Ed002's Note - The only way it will work is for Real Madrid to look to him if they cannot get others, Napoli to find funds and horse trade, Juventus to include Dybala in a deal or an English side to make a decision which they have not done yet.}


 

 

20 Dec 2018 23:08:48
Hi ed002.
Can you confirm if inter milan need to sell player to raise funds to be ffp compliant in the jan window and if so what players are they open to moving on?
There has been talk of icardi perhaps moving to spain?
Thanks.

ken

{Ed002's Note - The FFP year is July 1 to June 30 and so the windows are not directly relevant. A commitment to a sale and a buyer in hand by June 30 is what is required. Regardless, they have already agreed one January signing and they will need to balance the books for the three year window.}


1.) 21 Dec 2018 18:52:49
Ok thanks.
Merry Christmas.


 

 

07 May 2018 15:33:48
Good afternoon ed002.
Just wondering if the is any interest in icardi from inter. I have read his wife is his agent or negotiator and is difficult to deal with i'm not sure if that is true. He is a very good player imo but is he much sought after?
Cheers.

ken

{Ed002's Note - It will be clearer in two weeks, but nothing has changed right now.}

Thanks ed. So are united totally out of the reckoning now on him?
Juve are on a s5oending spree of sorts or so it seems will they be trying to sell the likes of dybala sandro or higuain to fund the potential new purchases?
