Hi ed002. Do you think dembele will stay at Barcelona. Surely they are tight for funds and having greizman coutsand demele would stretch their budget?
Again i know it would be costly to move such a big fee player on so early i just wondeted what they will do in this case.
Cheers ed.

ken

{Ed002's Note - They would certainly sell him for the right price Ken. However, the player wants to stay.}


1.) 22 Apr 2018 14:12:02
22 injury ravaged months is no time at all. i'm not surprised he wants to stay. i'd imagine the right price for barcelona would be too high for most clubs given what they paid for him.
Looks a really good player but if they do sign greizman and sold suarez then you would imagine dembele's opportunities for starts will be limited.
Thanks ed002. I just think it will be an interesting one to follow this summer.

{Ed002's Note - Whilst they would sell Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez the lack of buyers at the right price and the reluctance of the players to leave at this time make it difficult. Another forward will be leaving but it is disruptive to their plans and obviously financially they would like to move these players on to help with their larger summer plans.}

Hi ed002 hope you had a good Easter.
I was telling a colleague in spain about this site and he is a huge Real Madrid supporter
He asked me to ask you about potential exits from the club this summer. He has 4 players that he wanted to know if there was interest in them and if you thought they would leave this summer.
Bale. Kroos, isco and benzema.
He remains convinced that isco assencio and varane will all stay but is not so sure on zidane.
He also wanted to know if it is true that lewandowski veratti and hazard are firm targets for this summer to start a rebuild?

ken

{Ed002's Note - I have covered all of this already on the Real Madrid page Ken, could you take a look and if there is anything you need to know still let me know. It is not simply for this year that they are working, but this year and next.}


1.) 03 Apr 2018 19:37:06
Cheers ed sorry i missed it I'll copy and paste it and bang it on to him.

{Ed002's Note - No problem Ken - have him take a look through and I will be more than happy with any questions arising.}


2.) 09 Apr 2018 19:48:51
Hi ed002. I sent it on to him and he came back to me thought i was taking the p### because there wad no mention of isco. He thought i had deleted it😁😁. As i said above isco is his fav olayer. Is there anything new with him or did you leave him out because he is a definite stayer? I think every other player for a mention. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Isco will look to stay if Zidane leaves - which he almost certainly will. He is happy in Madrid but not with Zidane. There were some discussions with another side about Isco being included in part of a package but that has not gone anywhere at this time.}


3.) 09 Apr 2018 20:46:38
Think ill Leave the bit out about zidane. To say he is a big fan of zidanes is an understatement. Thanks ed002.

{Ed002's Note - He will need to get used to a different coach Ken.}


4.) 09 Apr 2018 21:41:18
Thats Madrid for you ed. 3 cl wins in 4 years but its not enough.

{Ed002's Note - But only one La Liga in five years and a massive rebuild due.}


5.) 11 Apr 2018 20:33:18
Thanks ed 002. League performances have been poor. Who will madrid want to coach and oversee this rebuild?
Im sure they have a list with a few candidates.

{Ed002's Note - They have two preferred options who both have jobs right now so I would rather not discuss it.}


6.) 11 Apr 2018 22:15:45
Fair enough ed002 i respect that.


 

 

23 Jan 2018 18:52:03
Hi ed002 are barcelona still open to selling gomes and have any sides made an approach to sign him. Cheers.

ken

{Ed002's Note - At the right price which Juve say is too high - Spurs are keen.}


1.) 24 Jan 2018 15:25:18
Thanks ed002.


 

 

06 Jul 2017 00:05:46
Hi ed002. Can i ask you if barcalona are looking to make a firm bid for veratti and if they wiuld be open to selling one of suarez or neymar to help fund investment for otjer areas in the swuad. Cheers.

ken

{Ed002's Note - A couple of clubs have spoken with PSG about Verrratti, including Barcelona, but they have been told he is not for sale. Barcelona remain keen as he is their first choice to replace Iniesta. PSG would be reluctant to sell without a replacement and would like to take Coutinho. Barcelona would indeed need to raise the money for the purchase if it could be made to happen. It is not out of the question that PSG might look to use interest in Verratti to leverage a deal for Neymar.}


1.) 06 Jul 2017 13:23:55
That's what i suspected ed cheers.


 

 

17 Jun 2017 17:21:47
Hi ed. Can you tell me if there has been any interest in Toni Kroos this summer.
Also ed if any club has shown interest in trying to sign lewindowski from bayern?
Thanks ed.

ken

{Ed002's Note - (a) Juventus and the Manchester clubs have an interest. (b) No.}


1.) 17 Jun 2017 20:46:01
Thanks ed. Hope your enjoying the fine weather.

{Ed002's Note - I am in California hoping it doesn't get too hot.}


2.) 18 Jun 2017 09:28:07
Out in the VW T2 camper eh Ed? Can picture you leaning against the surfboard on your laptop sifting through all the agents' emails! 😎.

{Ed002's Note - Something like that.}

Hi ed002. You have mentioned before that savic at Lazio is wanted by a number of clubs but the price is likely to be very high.
Do you know if lazio intend or need to sell this summer. Or if they qualify for the cl would that change their desire or need to sell?
Cheers.

ken

{Ed002's Note - It makes no difference at all to the situation.}


1.) 09 Apr 2018 18:11:06
Thanks ed. I was wondering if lazio would be more keen to keep key players if they qualify ir if indeed tbe fee would be required for re investing etc. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - They know who they want as a replacement and it is something they are working on right now. The situation with Sergey Milinkovic-Savic remains the same.}


2.) 09 Apr 2018 19:23:22
Thanks ed. Where do you think he will move to? If i'm not mistaken you said very few could afford him but that the usual protagonists in Manchester United real Madrid and psg were all keen. Is Any club pushing ahead or posing harder?

{Ed002's Note - The asking price is scaring clubs off which is making Real Madrid think twice, hence they have alternatives. They also have significant plans across the board and money can be far better spent. Again the price is making both Manchester United and the manager himself to consider alternatives. He could end up being priced out of a move. But I would doubt that Real Madrid would consider throwing significant funds at him. Lazio would prefer an auction to push it up further.}


3.) 09 Apr 2018 19:38:20
That makes sense ed002. Thanks.
Nothing like an auction to push the price up. I've watched him a lot but don't see 80m type of player. He plays a very similar game to pogba in many ways.
Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - Right Ken.}


4.) 09 Apr 2018 21:16:18
Just out of interest, Ed002, who would Lazio like to replace Sergej?

{Ed002's Note - Oguzhan Ozyakup.}


5.) 11 Apr 2018 22:01:00
Thanks for that, Ed002. Still the legend!


 

 

21 Mar 2018 18:19:55
Hi ed002 are inter likely to take up their option on cancelo currently on loan from valencia? Ta.

ken

{Ed002's Note - They would like to but money remains an issue - I suspect it will come down to what happens with Kondogbia.}


 

 

18 Mar 2018 08:12:36
Hi ed 002 hope all good your end.
A couple of questions
1. Do juve have any interest in martial I've read reports that they have. Or is thete any interest from him elsewhere.
2. Do you think ac milan will sell there young keeper donneruma?
3. Do you see any complications and what difficulties to you see for the epl clubs looking ahead to the summer window now that it will close earlier for the epl clubs compared to the likes of italy spain and france for example. Wc years tend to be more difficult to get business done early.
Thanks.

ken

{Ed002's Note - 1. Yes but they are a long way apart on price. 2. They may well need to and there have been discussions with a couple of sides. 3. It will be up to the EPL sides to do their business early and that is what many are looking to do. The problem will be over sales and disruntled players. But a self inflicted wound.}


1.) 18 Mar 2018 11:35:09
Thanks ed002.
When you say a self inflicted wound do you mean by the epl clubs voting to shorten the window?
It did seem to be a rushed vote given that its a wc year which traditionally makes it harder to do business early.

Is juve one of the interested clubs for donnereruma? He does look a really good talent.
Juve tend to do good transfer business and seem to get players in at good prices in comparison to what the epl clubs pay. Notwithstanding the preium english clubs have to pay.
Thanks for the response. K.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, the PL clubs did it to themselves. Juventus is not one of the clubs they have spoken to but they could potentially become involved.}


2.) 18 Mar 2018 18:25:55
Thanks 002 for the reply.

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


 

 

13 Mar 2018 09:07:23
Hi ed002. You said in jan united were in talks to try and sign Jorginho from napoli. So you know if they will follow up this summer or has the focus shifted now on to our no1 midfield target savic. Just curious if with the emergence of mctominay has reduced the need of midfielders from 2 to 1?
Cheers.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United remain very keen Ken.}


1.) 14 Mar 2018 17:22:20
Thanks 002.


 

 

07 Dec 2017 21:13:24
Hi ed 002. Is there any interest in darmian from Any of the serie a sides from Manchester United?
And secondly is there any interest in miki from any of the serie a clubs?
Thanks.

ken

{Ed002's Note - Roma and Inter are potential options for Matteo Darmian in Italy and there is interest from Spain for a loan.
