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.}

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

luckaway

{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

Outbound:
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.}

Ed 002, where would Oblak look to go if he left?

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