Ed, I was wondering whether Hoffenheim's Toljan was looking to move this summer. He's entering the final year of his contract and apparently isn't really keen on renewing. Are there any clubs trying to get him this summer?
Cheers, mate.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, a number of sides have shown an interest with Roma having met with his representatives and Hoffenheim this week.}

Ah good to know, Ed. Thanks a bunch for that. He'd be an excellent signing for any club. Get him, Chelsea.

Ed002, possible to ask the clubs that Monaco have reported for tapping up Mbappe?

{Ed002's Note - They have written to two clubs. It is irrelevant who they are.}

Hi Ed, is Blaise Matuidi going to be on the move this summer? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Whilst PSG need to sell to make space in the squad and wage budget, Blaise Matuidi is finally open to a move from Paris but the club has priced him at a level where it will be difficult to find a suiter but they have given him permission to talk with interested parties. His agent has made it clear that he will listen to offers from England and Italy and he has spoken with Arsenal and Manchester United, but neither has made an offer. The only offer on the table is from Juventus but it is by some way short of what is being asked. PSG know this needs resolving fairly quickly as they have a replacement very much in mind so they may comromise.}

just read a report saying MU hold an interest in the player but would have to move quickly as other teams are interested obviously the ones you have listed.

Appreciate it cheers.

{Ed002's Note - They would have to pay well over the odds to get him a Work Permit to play in England.}

Ed002 - Real Madrid are SURELY about to pull the trigger on something soon - do you expect them to go in for Mbappe or could they be bankrolling for a keeper in January?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change to their plans.}

Do you believe United's griping that the club handled business with Chelsea differently?

With Alexis Sanchez maybe going to PSG are Arsenal trying to get someone like Dembele (from Dortmund) or Dybala? Doesn't seem like Mbappe will leave Monaco now.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

19 Jul 2017 16:20:41
I'd imagine that Dybala would require a world record fee to prise him away from Juve. Plus whilst not certain, I'd imagine the plan would be for Real Madrid to go for him next summer when Ronaldo and/ or Benzema have moved on.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2017 23:25:56
Are Arsenal looking to buy - Mousa Dembele and Virgil Van Dijk?

{Ed002's Note - Both, no.}

Ed will renato sanches be moving this window and whos interested.

{Ed002's Note - Renato Sanches has been a disaster and Bayern Munich they could mug some club in to buying him they would. The player has not coped with the cultural change at all - Manchester United got lucky last year. There has been an approach to Juventus and to Napoli about him but nobody is interested in the asking price and he will stay or possibly move on loan.}

Ed could psg go for aguero as there other targets don't look like going through.

{Ed002's Note - They are one of the sides that could be interested if he were to be available.}

James going to Bayern on loan! Could Madrid not get the fee they needed? Seems strange .

Hello Ed002,

I was wondering if anyone seems interested in Christian Pulisic? Also, would Dortmund consider selling?


{Ed002's Note - Spurs, PSG, Liverpool, Arsenal and Batern Munich but he has said he doesn't want to move to England right now, Dortmund don't want to sell and Bayern has another solution in mind.}

Ed002, possible to ask about Aubameyang and Dzeko's futures?

{Ed002's Note - Aubameyang will almost certainly leave Dortmund this summer and there have been talks with four clubs. Right now two of those are out of the picture. But Milan are very keen to sort something out as soon as they can and there was a discussion with Chelsea on Friday. Dzeko's agent is trying to get Wolfsburg to make a move for the player who is keen to return to Germany.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

11 Jul 2017 17:58:51
Would Dzeko joining Wolfsburg mean that Gomez would leave?

{Ed002's Note - Why try to complicate everything.}

This is for ED002 if he is about.

I was chewing the fat with a friend from Marseille and we happened to start talking about football. I asked him about Dalbert (as I had seen tentative links with us to him) and he told me he is good, very quick, suspect defensively but a good attacking fullback. I was then asking him about defenders based in France and he mentioned Issa Diop (Toulouse I think? ) and Malang Sarr (Rennes? ) . My question is, related to Dalbert, Diop and Sarr, is what is your assessment of them? Do you think they are good players? And are you aware of any clubs looking at making a bid for them this summer? I only ask as you are very well connected in France.

Thanks for your time.

{Ed002's Note - I don't "assess" players. There is interest in Dalbert from Arsenal and Inter. Arsenal were seeing Issa Diop as an alternative to Lejeune who joined Newcastle with Leipzig and a couple of other sides have looked at him. Melang Sarr of Nice has been watched by Chelsea throughout last season.}

Hi ed

I listened to the sharkopod again and I know things change but the midfielders mentioned where Toni Kroos, Nemanja Matic, Thiago Maia and Marcelo Brozovic. You've given the update regarding Matic but I was wondering about the other 3 I suspect Thiago Maias price is still off putting


{Ed002's Note - (a) Real Madrid are trying hard to clear the decks at the moment and Kroos will stay for the time being - an attempt to include him in a deal for someone else failed and another club making an approach for him were told he is not available. (b) There has been no acceptable offer for Matic. (c) There has been no acceptable offer for Thiago Maia but Inter may make an offer if another player leaves. (d) There have been acceptable offer made by Zenit and Galatasaray but the player is awating an offer from elsewhere - we will have to see but the interest of three English sides remains as far as I know.}

Hi Ed002,

Not sure where to ask this, but when Blatter resigned and elections were held again for the presidency at FIFA, I seem to remember you saying that the Prince Ali of Jordan (? ) would have been the best option if FIFA were to seriously reform itself. Now that Infantino has been in power for a little over a year, how do you feel he has been doing? Do you see him cleaning up FIFA and the corruption that it seems rife with? Or is he just another corrupt official in a long line (Blatter, Platini etc)?

Also, on a slightly related note, what ever happened to that Garcia report? Such a big deal was made of it and it seems to have just been swept under the carpet.

Cheers, and have a nice day.

{Ed002's Note - Infantino is making serious efforts to clean up FIFA but Prince Ali would have been the one to take it forward. The Garcia Report should be easy enough to find now that FIFA has released the full version. The redacted report was a terrible mistake. Right now, they need to keep at it until the 2022 world cup is out of the way - but there remain serious fears of violence in Russia - and they need to make sure that the process for awarding the 2026 World Cup (even if there is just the one bidder) is squeaky clean. The decision will be in June next year but if any one else looks to bid we will know within a month or so. Australia were thought to be potential bidders but they are still very miffed after the 2022 decision. Perhaps 2030 for them.}

Thanks for the reply, it's such a shame that corruption has ruined the beautiful game. Hopefully Infantino and the remaining officials succeed in cleaning up FIFA, but the cynic in me does make me wonder whether too many people are implicated for there to be any real effect.

{Ed002's Note - They don't want to disband FIFA and any move to something else would take some years to transition.}

Too many players linked with Arsenal and the positions are all over the place - left wing, right wing, striker, central midfield, keeper, right back and centre half

Looks like we need a whole new team!

Can you shed any light on the ins / outs at Arsenal.

Is Danny good enough to start for us? Will Jack and Theo be sold.

Thanks in advance - I would like : Kjaer, Matuidi / Carvalho, Mbappe and a solid right wing back who can cross the ball.

{Ed002's Note - I can't help sorry. Try the Arsenal page.}
