Hi ed02,

I am huge Lazio fan a team which i support in Italian league. Out of curiousity I am asking can you tell me any of the good players Lazio have come close to signing in the transfer windows during previous years. Appreciate your knowledge and expertise.

{Ed002's Note - I really can't answer questions like that - your idea of "good" and mine may well be different and I have no way to determine "close". Sorry.}

Ed 02,

Sorry mate your are rigth in saying there migth be difference in “good player” in your opinion and mine but what I actually meant was like transfers which Lazio was close to making but didn’t happen due to many reasons.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot quantify "close" and I have no inclination to start going back over what didn't happen.}

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.

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

Agree0 Disagree0

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.}

Agree0 Disagree0

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.}

Agree0 Disagree0

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.}

Ed could you tell us which clubs if any are looking at allegri as there next manager.

{Ed002's Note - Notably PSG will see him as one of two very viable options. Real Madrid have a couple of others in mind, and if circumstances are such that Conte were to leave Chelsea he is one on their shortlist but not at the top. Juventus has made clear on many occasions that he will not be leaving.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Mar 2018 17:01:20
last year's interest from Arsenal in Allegri has gone?

{Ed002's Note - If Gazidis pushes for Allegri the club will need to pay a very large fee and he will have other options if he is to leave. As I have explained on the Arsenal page there are others who would be far more likely.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi ed002 are inter likely to take up their option on cancelo currently on loan from valencia? Ta.

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

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.

{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.}

Agree0 Disagree0

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.}

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.

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

Hi ed001,

I saw a few Bundesliga videos recently and was just wondering what your opinion on Miroslav Klose was? His stats for his clubs doesn't look that great (bar his spell at Lazio) but on the international stage, he's record goalscorer for Germany and in the World Cup.

Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - he was excellent at certain things, but was fairly limited in overall terms. However he had good instincts, great in the air in particular and was composed when a chance fell to him. He is one of those good, but not great, players who can be fantastic so long as you play to their strengths and build around that. The minute he is not getting the service he needs, then he becomes anonymous in games.}

Hi eds any interest in Luca torriera of Sampdoria.

{Ed002's Note - Everton enquired.}

20 Feb 2018 15:17:03
Ed which teams are interested in De Vrij of Lazio? He will be moving on a free transfer but any interest from English clubs, I know they can sign him on a pre contract now.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Inter who have been speaking with his agent, Juventus interest has likely gone, possibly Manchester City but he will not be first choice, Liverpool had an interest but they have added van Dijk.}

Could you share who Manchester united have in mind few?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Toby Alderweireld (CB) - but may need to fend off an offer of a new deal from Spurs, Manchester City and Real Madrid
Raphael Varane (CB) - it drags on rather
Samuel Umtiti (CB) - unlikely right now as another English side who have enquired have been told he is negotiating a new deal - if that can't be agreed we will see
David Lopez (CB) - do not rule him out - Mourinho will wait and remains keen

{Ed002's Note - That is not what I said, but Manchester City are keen.}

Must be a potential replacement for Aguero.
I always had a feeling that Aguero would not survive the Pep era at City.

Hello Ed002,

I saw on the Arsenal page that you mentioned that talks are ongoing for Jorginho to move elsewhere.

Perhaps this is the right page to ask, to which club that might be?
