Hi Ed, with Allegri leaving Juve would his move to Inter be back on?

{Ed002's Note - No, that is very unlikely now as they have tentative agreement with someone else.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 17:50:14
Thanks Ed, a hot topic isn’t it.

Hi Ed, with Allegri leaving Juventus, I was wondering if you’re able to shed any light on his next destination and who Juventus have in mind as his replacement? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - He has a couple of options but it would be unreasonable to discuss them whilst they have coaches still in place. Juventus would like Didier Deschamps or Mauricio Pochettino.}

Hi Eds

Is there interest in Sergei Milinkovic Savic from and is he likely to move this summer?

{Ed002's Note - There is interest from Juventus, Real Madrid and Inter but he is not first pick and it is unlikely that Inter could afford the fee with other planned purchases.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 May 2019 18:25:43
Looks like he is still seen as a less grief option to Pogba. Wish United looked to him and Saúl as a midfield pairing if Pogba left. Thanks as ever for the prompt reply Ed!

Agree0 Disagree0

 

 

13 May 2019 12:53:30
Hi Eds, is there any interest in Cengiz Under of Roma?

{Ed002's Note - Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and Arsenal all have an interest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2019 15:54:49
Thank you Ed, he looks promising.

{Ed002's Note - He has suffered injury, form and attitude problems this season which will likely end the interest of Bayern Munich.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2019 18:16:04
Thanks for the update 002. Why are attitude problems in young footballers becoming more common these days. So much talent wasted.

{Ed002's Note - Many want too much too soon.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 May 2019 18:55:24
That’s society these days!

12 May 2019 10:15:27
Hi Ed002 has something changed with Cancelo? There seems to be lots of rumours linking him away.

Would be an amazing signing for Utd.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed, Joao Cancelo (RB) could be included in a deal for Pogba as MU need a RB or Icardi.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 May 2019 14:44:24
Ed 002 I seen you say Napoli have got their insigne replacement so the price has dropped I was just wondering who that player was?

{Ed002's Note - Napoli plan on Lozano of PSV replacing Insigne.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2019 21:12:56
Ed002, where is Insigne going?

{Ed002's Note - They have reduced their asking price considerably to try and find a buyer but no one is keen. The two sides that could be interested would need players to leave - and right now that is not happening. The player says he wants to stay.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 May 2019 10:09:43
Hi Ed002

Do you have any idea on Gianluigi Buffon future after this season?

Do you think he could finally hang his gloves up?

I heard mix reports on PSG offering a year extension, Juventus offering him a director role and even a team like Boca Juniors offering him year. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Buffon was planning to leave PSG in the summer and PSG were planning on thanking him for his service, but they panicked a little over a replacement so the option of asking him to stay another year came up. Now that is not seen as an issue. I know nothing about Boca I would not hold my breath about that. He has an option to return to JUventus and that is the most likely scenario.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 May 2019 12:24:50
Ed 002 if you don't mind please; just read of koulibalys playing partner Raul Albiol, and in fact ed001 lists him in the underated section today. Given that and the reported massive fee for koulibaly has any club shown serious interest, and would you reckon he would be available?
Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - He will be 34 at the start of the season. Nobody is chasing him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 May 2019 12:19:46
Cheers for the reply Ed 002- didn't think he was that old but in all honesty hadnt really heard/ seen much of him- grateful as always.
Enjoy the weekend .

{Ed002's Note - There will be a lot of elderly CBs available this summer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2019 12:01:54
Hi Ed's! Hope you're doing well?

I was wondering whether Romagnoli is a player that's off limits so to speak. Do any clubs retain an interest in taking him at this time, and would Milan even consider selling him?

I'd love an answer as Romagnoli is one of my favorite CBs around.

Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - Alessio Romagnoli signed a new contract last summer and is a player Milan have no intention of selling; although if they fail to make it to the Champions League and a very significant offer were made it would need to be considered - two clubs are considering that option although there is a dependency on coaching changes.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2019 12:27:47
Hmm very thankful for the reply!

I thought that indeed lack of CL could potentially have an impact, and Milan are on the outside looking in right now.
I know who I'd like for him to join, but seeing as they might not have CL either (or even the ability to buy) I guess I shouldn't hold my breath :-P

Thanks a bunch, Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2019 15:37:34
Ed is one of the clubs chelsea?

{Ed002's Note - Are you going to troll all of the posts asking if they are anything to do with Chelsea?}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2019 18:13:55
Ed apologies, i'm not trolling, we've been interested before so was just asking if we were interested, sorry.

{Ed002's Note - Don't worry - and no, Chelsea re not one of the clubs.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2019 18:51:09
Shame, thanks ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2019 23:05:54
Are there viable interests from any clubs for Allegri for next season?

{Ed002's Note - Max Allegri was to leave in the summer and move to Inter but Juventus have patched things up with him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2019 17:48:36
Cheers. I wondered if Chelsea had their eye on him as a replacement for Sarri if that doesn't work out.

{Ed002's Note - He was moving to Inter, it is that which has changed.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Apr 2019 14:09:10
Who have inter in mind now ed002. Reports that conte or jose are in the frame. Amy truth in either one of those?

{Ed002's Note - As Allegri is for now out of reach for Inter, they are one of the clubs who have talked to Chelsea about taking Conte on as head coach.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 12:33:23
Hi Ed002, something has changed since April, as BBC have just announced that Allegri is to leave Juve in Summer?
Heard anything please?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, the decision was made a couple of weeks ago that he would leave.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 15:50:13
Hey there ed002.I know you are always on the move. And appreciate your insight into the other side of football.

When you have time can you possibly do a potential list of ins and outs for Juventus?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Remind me at the end of next week.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Apr 2019 11:48:10
I know it's not the end of next week yet but I figured I'd try my luck. maybe you need a break from the geniuses that send you love mail. If not I'll remind you in a few days :)

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am out of the country at present and will not really be back until tomorrow afternoon.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Apr 2019 13:16:24
Looks like lux aviation is taking you places.

Will try later.

Cheers.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Apr 2019 12:51:51
So can I tempt fate and ask for an update please. cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Sure.

The club are looking to:
Ahmadou Dia (G) one for the future - lots of interest
David De Gea (G) could look to making an offer

Luan Candido (LB) Looks to be heading elsewhere
Ryan Sessegnon (LWB/LM/LW) of interest as he is versatile could qualify as homegrown for Juventus
Marcelo (LB) the player wanted the move but there is a split opinion about him at Juve - looking unlikely right now

Cristian Romero (CB) Juve are keen to take the youngster
Nikola Milenkovic (CB) interest has waned and now returned
Matthijs de Ligt (CB) Benatia replacement wanted by Barcelona - but Juventus are again working hard on a deal
Samuel Umtiti (CB) price is an issue
Kostas Manolas (CB)
Ruben Dias (CB) Juventus need to refresh their aging central defence and Ruben Dias has been subject to discussions - Chiellini will be 35 by the start of next season, Bonucci 32, Barzagli 38 and loanee Caceres 33.

Aaron Ramsey (CM) - will move in the Summer
Tanguy Ndombele (CM) - interest comes and goes but still seen as a long term Pjanic replacement - looking very likely but his agent wants him to move to PSG
Paul Pogba (CM) - serious interest is there but Pogba prefers Real Madrid - although wages could be an issue there
Rolando Mandragora (CM) will take up an option and move him on immediately
Ivan Rakitic (CM) - Juventus expected to complete the move but for now interest has gone because of the overall price given his age
Sandro Tonali (CM) but Inter are pressing with a cunning plan
Adrien Rabiot (CM) looked at but no interest due to the baggage

Joao Felix (AM) first choice but Benfica will look to hold on to him and will give him a new contract - but Juventus are keen, but it will only be one of JF and NZ and only Felix if the price drops considerably
Nicolo Zaniolo (AM/LW) pushing very hard but wants to stay at Roma - regardless of the efforts of a third party- so Juventus will pay to take an option on him for 2020 - but the asking price is €100M
Isco (AM) seen as an option to Joao Felix
Bruno Fernandes (AM) - Juventus keep looking but I suspect a move elsewhere

Federico Chiesa (RW) Will take up an option on Udinese's Rolando Mandragora and use him as part of the deal with Fiorentina
Kylian Mbappe (RW) not going to happen
Mohammed Salah (RW/F) can't see it happening but his agent has been talking to Juventus

Julian Brandt (LW/AM) fall back position but I suspect interest will ramp up if Juventus cannot sign Zaniolo

Mauro Icardi (S) - Inter may want Dybala to seal any such deal but there are diffficulties
Joel Piroe (S) - kiddie from PSV - won't happen as he has signed a new contract - but Juve will wait
Francisco Trincao (F) Braga youngster
Gabriel Jesus (S) - looking to the future

Outbound looks something like this:

Emil Audero (GK) move already agreed - a "done deal" if you like

Joao Cancelo (RB) could be included in a deal for Pogba as MU need a RB or Icardi

Rogerio (LB) was offered as a part trade for MdL but won't happen; now will be offered as part of the deal for Felix

Andrea Barzagli (CB) retiring
Other CBs will depart based on purchases

Miralem Pjanic (DM/CM) will get what they can out of him financially - but are asking €100M and will need to drop that
Sami Khedira (CM) will get what they can out of him financially
Rolando Mandragora (CM) will take up an option and move him on immediately
Stefano Sturaro (CM) move already agree

Douglas Costa (RW) available for sale or trade - could be offered as part of a deal for Pogba

Paulo Dybala (AM/F) available to sell or trade - an attempt was made to exchange him for Icardi and he could be offered as part of any deal for Pogba or Salah

Moise Kean (S) was available for horse trading and was offered as a part trade for MdL but won't happen - expect him to get a new contract and stay - but could perhaps be offered to Benfica
Alberto Cerri (S) move already agree
Andrea Favilli (S) move already agree
Mario Mandzukic (S) Extended contract but at the right price could move on
Gonzalo Higuain (S) available for sale or exchange

Gracias senhor.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 15:47:33
Ed002 I've just seen your list of MU targets thank you for that.

I just have a question about milenkovic, you say a very good option by that do you mean ability or good value for money.

Is he highly thought of and is he ready now or for the future?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Milenkovic is a decent player and a viable option to say Manolas.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 16:05:38
Thanks ed I know nothing of milenkovic hence the question

Much appreciated.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 18:05:34
You can check the player profile on Milenkovic Dave. Maybe it can help form an image of him.

{Ed001's Note - Nikola Milenkovic profile there you go added a link for you.}

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 18:45:03
Thanks checked out and I quite like what I see.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 21:03:29
Hi Ed002 who is interested in Piotr Zielinksi? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No one right now as far as I know.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 22:01:27
Thank you Ed002. I also wanted to ask you Steven Bergwijn I am sure I have asked about him before but cannot find a post anywhere, would you be kind enough to refresh my memory?

{Ed002's Note - Steven Bergwijn (LW/AM) Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan have been watching - Inter have held discussions, but Liverpool can be discounted.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2019 06:58:42
Appreciate it Ed002.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 01:14:49
Hi Eds,

Any interest in Chiesa?

{Ed002's Note - Bayern Munich are looking at signing two RW and Federico Chiesa might be possible if budgets can be balanced. Of the Italian sides, Inter and Juventus are both very keen and both have creative solutions in mind. Milan, Roma and Napoli would struggle to justify the asking price with Milan looking at two viable alternatives. Chelsea's interest went when they secured Pulisic.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 09:52:11
Thanks as always for your in-depth insight ED002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 16:50:36
Can you share who the two viable alternatives that Milan are looking at? Totally OK if not.

{Ed002's Note - Pedro and Florian Thauvin - and although there is plenty of interest in FT from elsewhere, Milan see him as a replacement for Suso,}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 18:49:29
Thanks a lot ed2.

{Ed002's Note - All subject to any FIFA intervention.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 21:36:41
Any other clubs looking at Pedro, Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Not right now as far as I know.}

11 Apr 2019 05:00:59
Thanks Ed.

08 Apr 2019 10:02:14
Hi ed001,

Don't think there's a Milan page, so thought I'd ask here instead. What's your opinion on K. Piatek? He seems to be having a fantastic season and a big move from Genoa to Milan doesn't seem to have fazed him or stopped him scoring at all.

Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - I like him, but it is the first season I have seen anything from him, so I would be wary of him being a one season wonder. From what I have seen though, he looks a very good player with all the ability to become a top class striker, if he isn't already one.

I have added him to the player profile list as well for you.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Apr 2019 09:31:13
Cheers ed, looking forward to it :) .

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Apr 2019 16:52:22
Although it is his first season in the big leagues but I have a feeling he will not be a one season wonder, granted he may not have as prolific a season again but he has been really good all round this year.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Mar 2019 00:37:41
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.

{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.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Mar 2019 10:17:50
Thanks ed002.

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

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2019 19:43:49
Hi ed, hope your well. I was wondering if Rodrigo Bentancur Colmán was of interest to any teams or if juve would be open to letting him leave, especially with a potential change of manager. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There are no plans to let him go as far as I am aware.}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Mar 2019 20:19:59
Thanks ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Mar 2019 18:14:59
ed who is interested in zaniola and david neres thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona, Chelsea, Juventus, PSG and Real Madrid all have an interest in Zaniolo who wants to stay at Roma - regardless of the efforts of Mino. Borussia Dortmund want to take Neres as a Christian Pulisic replacement whilst Roma and both Milan clubs have shown an interest which has largely drifted away as he is seen as someone who does not contribute enough to the team. Other sides who watched him last season drew largely the same conclusion.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Mar 2019 17:59:26
Ed001's what are your thoughts on Nainggolan at CAM? He's hit form recently (shocked as I thought he was on the decline based on his lifestyle and performances) .

I've always considered him an all action midfielder who might be able to rival Vidal if not for his lifestyle, but Spalletti seems to prefer him as a 10.

{Ed001's Note - he did play there for a while at Roma and looked really good there but the manager was changed and he was pushed back again. It is the position he seems best suited for, it allows him to put himself about, without leaving a gap where he should be and makes use of his shooting, which is excellent.

By the way, Vidal has a similar lifestyle!}

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Mar 2019 18:53:27
Cheers for the reply Ed001, knew Vidal was loose in the off season but no idea that was his regular lifestyle, might be a contributing factor to his injures. What is it with tenacious players and crap lifestyles haha.

{Ed001's Note - I think it is very much the reason for his injuries to be honest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Mar 2019 14:41:18
@Ed002,

Is there any interest in Icardi? Particularly from Manchester United?

{Ed002's Note - There is interest from Napoli (very unlikely), Chelsea (very unlikely), Juventus (Dybala might need to be part of any deal), Real Madrid (but they see Mauro Icardi as a fall back postion and are concerned about baggage). Manchester United have no interest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 01:43:27
Hi,

What's the situation with Cedric Soares? He's on loan from Soton to Inter at the moment with an option to buy.

Is it pretty much nailed on that he will complete that move in the summer or will he be available?

I think he would be an excellent option for Liverpool as a backup RB which I believe the club are looking for. He was solid at Soton, plays in a way that would suit Klopp and has Prem experience.

Cheers in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Inter Milan intend to buy him for €12M if they know they can sell him on at a profit else he will return to Southampton to be sold. Liverpool has no interest in him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2019 15:16:18
Cheers for the response Ed.

Shame Liverpool have no interest, he seems like he would be a good option at RB for them.

Cheers again.

{Ed002's Note - But he is just a random player - there are lots of others out there as well.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2019 12:18:57
Hi Ed.
Once again, I have a question about a Danish player, that hopefully you might answer.
This time, I'm wondering if there's any interest in Joachim Andersen from Sampdoria? I read somewhere that Spurs and Milan were interested?
Also, could you perhaps tell me anything about him as a player, if you know him? I've never had the chance to see him play.
Regardless, have a very nice day!

{Ed002's Note - Spurs have been keen for a long while and Inter have spoken with Sampdoria as they see a potential Skrinier replacement - and Milan are also keen on the Cb.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I tried to put up a post about Monchi the other day but looks like its disappeared. If this was deliberate because you are wanting to steer clear about questions related to coaches/ DOFS then no problem - i'm happy to drop this line of inquiry.
Otherwise I was interested to find out what happened at Roma for Monchi? Some of his transfers were what I would term classic Monchi eg Zaniolo, But others were a bit more miss eg Jarsdorp being signed when he was already under an injury cloud. Was this all his doing or were the higher ups having more say over the transfers than he might have liked.
Plus it looks from the outside that his transfers left the team unbalanced eg an emphasis on attacking midfielders but the defensive side wasnt addressed. Was this due to options not being available and him wanting to address them down the track or was it because someone else was dictating priorities?

{Ed002's Note - I answered it.}

Agree0 Disagree0
