Ed002, with the news that Rabiot is set to be benched for the rest of the season due to not signing a new contract do you know if any clubs are looking to move for him in January or summer? I know you mentioned barcelona in the past but wonder if any other clubs had also looked at the player thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I seem to keep having to deal with this, but Bayern Munich, Spurs, Arsenal, Napoli, Milan but particularly Barcelona would like to take him.}

Hi Ed002,

Long time reader and always look for your insight. Was wondering if you had knew anything about Emiliano Salas transfer in January?

{Ed002's Note - There is interest from Everton and Cardiff, plus Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Rennes and one or two others have taken a look at him.}

Any Ed's know or heard rumour about a takeover bid for Man Utd from the Saudis?
Apparently Andy Mitten from Utd magazine has dialogue with some middle eastern journos that say a takeover is in the works.

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine - this was dealt with weeks ago.}

What do you make of Witsel ed001? I've always considered him highly overrated, but he looks a new player with Dortmund.

{Ed001's Note - I am not a fan but he is doing well as part of the Dortmund team. Must be said, not so sure how much of that is down to him though.}

Ed001, who are some wingers (both LW and RW) whose playing styles are similar to Pedro of Chelsea?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed001's Note - off the top of my head I can't think of any. His hustle bustle running around style has mostly gone out of fashion these days.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

13 Dec 2018 15:02:02
Thank you Ed.

On another note, are you aware of any interest in him and if Chelsea are looking to sell?

{Ed001's Note - no mate, none.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Dec 2018 16:31:38
Thanks a ton, Ed.

Guess we are stuck with Willian and Pedro (hopefully as backups) if Hazard leaves.

Have a great day ahead!

{Ed001's Note - take care mate.}

Ed002, if you're not too busy, could you enlighten me on who is interested in signing the following players at this point:

1) Edinson Cavani
2) Nabil Fekir
3) Florian Thauvin

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Bayern Munich have an interest in both Fekir and Thauvin.}

Thank you, Ed.

One more question. What does the future look like for Higuain? Doesn't seem like Milan will buy him.
Any interest in him?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything having changed.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Dec 2018 09:27:30
Thank you, Ed. I hope you're doing well.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome - and I am generally fine.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 03:38:46
Ed002, who is interested in Thiago Mendes?

{Ed002's Note - In the summer numerous clubs wer showing an interest includinging Anderlecht, Wolfsburg, Newcastle, Crystal Palace, West Ham and Marseille but they were all put off by a euro 25M asking price.}

11 Dec 2018 12:15:11
Thanks, Ed002.

Btw, if I ask you who is Fabregas' replacement, will you answer?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained before about Chelsea.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 13:25:17
I know. Just trying in case you decide to forgive or if you're in a good mood.

Also, this one is eating my mind since I can't find this replacement in any recent rumours.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Dec 2018 22:39:23
Roman, that will probably be Tonali.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Dec 2018 05:49:59
Could also be Julian Weigl or more likely, Nicolas Barella.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Dec 2018 05:51:24
Ed001, who are some good registas playing at 'smaller' clubs?

A few I know would include Sandro Tonali, Ruben Neves, Mario Lemina, Leandro Paredes, Frenkie De Jong.
There's also Amadou Diawarra and Julian Weigl, though it's hard to call Napoli and BVB as small.

Anyone that I missed?

{Ed001's Note - what about Neves team mate with Portugal and Wolves? Moutinho, he is a similar player to Neves.

You have players like Seri at Fulham, who try to play as registas, while I think he is an awful player from what I have seen, he is highly rated, the likes of Barca were watching him. No idea why myself but I have not really seen enough of him to judge him properly. Lerma would probably just about be classed as a regista. Possibly Lobotka of Celta and Ascacibar of Stuttgart. It really depends on your interpretation of the term. I am doing a search of players in that position to try and spot some, but it is difficult to see ones that are actually good at that role, lots of players who can play it but good ones are rare. Dendoncker (now of Wolves as well) was supposed to be excellent before he joined Wolves.

Oh I know who hasn't showed up in the search, but comes to mind now as I saw the Bournemouth logo - Lewis Cook, that lad is a very classy player and they missed him badly at the weekend.}

Thanks, Ed001.

I was just talking about Lewis Cook with a mate a few days back and how he would be a good signing for Chelsea as Jorginho's backup. The next day he gets injured. Hope that he recovers well, seems like a genuine English talent.

I was actually trying to figure out who could be the mystery 'Fabregas replacement' that Ed002 was talking about. Calciomercato ran a story saying that it's Denis Suarez, which makes a little sense, but then again Denis Suarez is the last thing from a regista.

Yesterday, there were rumours of Thiago Mendes from France Football, so he might be the guy.

{Ed001's Note - I think Cook is a better player than Jorginho, I really do not rate him at all.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Dec 2018 06:48:54
Fair opinion. I really liked Jorginho in Serie A, but his weaknesses are getting highlighted in the Prem.

{Ed001's Note - I personally think he was the weakness that was exploited in Serie A as well. If Napoli had a better player at the base last season, they would have held onto win it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2018 09:45:26
Ed002, who is interested in Julian Weigl?

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal and Roma with Monchi having a side meeting with Dortmund in Milan about 10 days ago. Manchester City, Milan and PSG have been interested but he is not the first pick for any of them.}

Thanks for the quick reply, Ed.
Have a nice day!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

07 Dec 2018 18:24:14
Ed002- hope all is well. Quick question : Fekir was discussed at length in connection to liverpool but is there any other serious interested teams - apparantly his future is rumoured to be subject to talks with parent club soon?

{Ed002's Note - Fekir might well be available in the winter if Lyon can bring in a replacement, else he will move in the summer I would think. Lyon are of the opinion that the player was disrupted over the mess caused by Liverpool in the summer but real interest is limited and Bayern Munich are in a dofficult place right now.}

many thanks for the speedy reply as always ed002.

06 Dec 2018 01:19:34
Ed002, is there any interest in Emerson Palmeiri?

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I have no interest whatsoever in answering any questions about Chelsea players.}

05 Dec 2018 03:42:27
Ed002, do you know of any interest in Bournemouth's Callum Wilson and Lewis Cook?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of interest in eitg}

Hey Ed, few randomish names, but all enjoying good seasons in their respective leagues - any updates on the futures of:
Emiliano Sala
Sebastian Haller
Christian Stuani
Franscesco Caputo

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Everton are very keen on Sala.}

Ed is anyone interested in richarlison.

{Ed002's Note - He only moved three or four months ago so the interest of other clubs has gone.}

Ed002, with a third-tier UEFA competition announced last night, is the creation of an European Super League bound to happen now?

{Ed002's Note - nothing gas changed.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Dec 2018 10:04:08
Pardon me, Ed, but I do not understand. What's the next thing that's going to happen?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t understand.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2018 10:43:46
How will teams qualify (as in from the PL) for the new competition?

And if the 'big' clubs migrate to the European Super League, will the UCL, UEL and UEL2 have 'smaller' teams in them?

{Ed002's Note - like the Champions League and Europa League the FAs will decide on who qualifies - as it is ranking country based it will have no impact on the “elite” sides who are looking to breakaway. It will be of more interest to the likes of Scotland, Israel, Ireland etc.. Wales will talk with The FA but it is of no real relevance really to England’ leading sides.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2018 12:20:51
Thanks a ton, Ed.

One more question. I have heard that the FA wants to limit the number of overseas players to 13 and the PL is against this.

Any updates on the situation?

{Ed002's Note - Firstly it is non-homegrown players and not overseas players that the proposal relates to. The proposal is the result of government interference and a trade off is proposed that see the work permit rules relaxed if the clubs would agree to the reduction. Right now most clubs are not keen.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2018 13:57:01
My bad, Ed. I should have written non-HG player but the term 'overseas player's is getting mentioned so frequently in the media that I impulsively wrote it.

If the government's behind this, it is extremely likely to happen, right?

{Ed002's Note - No, the clubs need to agree.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2018 18:02:56
Ed any new interest in ferland mendy? and are lyon willing to sell him? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Ferland Mendy is seen by Barcelona as a cost effective Lucas Digne replacement if Juan MIranda is not ready to step up from the B squad - a good one for the future but Lyon will want too much for a player who could end up being used as cover. Barcelona will now likely opt for another cheap option that they have.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Dec 2018 00:37:56
Ed on arsenal page you said something about a meeting on tuesday where isco was discussed? Any details?

Also that a club wants cesc in january and said to chelsea they would back off chelseas target to replace him, was this milan and tonali? Thanks alot

Also about Aouar, can i ask what clubs spoke to lyon at the meeting about him?

{Ed002's Note - I have no interest in discussiong any of this. It is of no significance.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

03 Dec 2018 16:32:16
Ok, also lyon only looking to sell one significant player unkess big money comes, would fekir be classed as significant as they were aleeady looking to sell him?

{Ed002's Note - Of course.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2018 16:46:52
Ed reports of chelsea and man u interest in eder militao, any truth and whos interested, thanjs.

{Ed002's Note - It keeps cropping up about everyone being interested in Eder Militao who only moved to Porto in the summer. I am not aware of any Everton, Manchester United or Chelsea interest in Eder Militao. Two English sides interested in the summer knew they would need to pay well over the odds if he was to move to England in order to get a work permit. That hasn't changed and I don't see a move to England as an option at all right now.}

Hi eds hope your all well just wondered your opinion whether if you were manager would your take a punt on balotelli at your club if you needed a stiker and why?! Bit of a random one i know just interested. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - No. He was successful last season in France but has had some dire seasons in the past. He is expensive and a bundle of grief for a club.}

Hello Ed002, I hope you are well. A few weeks ago you mentioned that Jardim's situation would become clear over the coming days, I am wondering did anything come about from that? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - He has turned down two approaches - one because of language issues and one because of location. Right now he is in no rush.}

Hey ed,

is Bayern munich really interested in Wenger as new head coach, if they dismiss Kovac?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach from Bayern Munich at this time and they have a specific view of what they are looking for. Perhaps a DoF would be best for him in a nice city like Paris.?}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

28 Nov 2018 08:22:51
I thought he doesn't know what a DoF is haha, just wishing him the best, he deserves it.
