Ed002 who is interested in calafiori

{Ed002's Note - Riccardo Calafiori (CB/LB) Bayer Leverkusen and Chelsea have a declared interest but he is not first choice for either. Newcastle interest has gone. Spurs, Bayern Munich and Brighton have sent scouts but Juventus has held a number of discussions with Bologna and are offering cash and a part exchange. They will also have an edge because of Motta although Bologna have now secured CL football they insist they do not need to sell their prime assets.}

Hi Eds,

Looks like Bayern are trying to move on de Ligt this summer, is that correct?

If so do you know who might be interested and how much Bayern would be looking for?

Cheers

{Ed002's Note - Matthijs de Ligt (CB) Player was happier with Tuchel as coach but changes make his future less clear. In the unlikely event that ten Hag is still at Manchester United he may well be interested but he would not be top of the list at all. Bayern have no interest in selling although they are persisting in chasing another CB themselves and the new coach may look to ask him to be moved on to raise funds. Price may put clubs off.}

Ed002 who is interested in jonathan david and dovbyk

{Ed002's Note -

Artem Dovbyk (S) Joined Girona in the summer of 2023 with the City Group planning on possibly moving him to Manchester City if all goes well. Chelsea and Arsenal have had scouts watch him but both have preferred targets. Atletico have had two offers turned down, the second including a player.

Jonathan David (S/AM) Lille, like many French clubs were hit hard by the loss of broadcast revenue and will need to sell some of their more valuable assets even though they do not want to. Jonathan David is valued by Lille at an unrealistic €50M but moving in to the last year of his contract will need to accept perhaps €30M. Athletico Madrid offer a solution where they would pay a fee and reduce the overall cost by including a player that fits Lille's need for a position deemed to be weak. Napoli and Spurs no longer see him as a possible addition. Real Madrid have previously declared an interest but their focus has turned away. He has been recommended to Chelsea by an ex player but they have a preferred targets. Interest of Manchester United has gone. Arsenal, Aston Villa or Milan may offer a viable solution but each have preferred targets.}

Any truth that Atletico are considering selling Oblak this summer ed002? Many thanks :)

{Ed002's Note - Jan Oblak (G) Not for sale but Bayern could look to his release clause - but doubtful as they have another target. Has already turned down an offer from the Middle East.}

Ed002 nico williams is playing amazing, will he leave this summer and who is interested thanks

{Ed002's Note - Nico Williams (LW/RW) Young Basque winger and brother to Inaki who has eased himself in to the first team over the last two seasons. Terse response from the Spanish U21 set up (along the lines of "he does not score many goals for an attacker") when told he was changing his allegiance to Ghana, like his brother - and that led to him changing back to Spain. There was plenty of interest in him so a contract extension and buy out clause were awarded to the player at the start of 2022 and again this season, pricing him out of a move to Barcelona at €50M. The Aston Villa coach wishes to be reunited and they will push for a deal in the summer but expect him to stay for a year or two more after signing a new contract. Looked at by numerous Premier League clubs including Manchester United as well as Barcelona and Real Madrid.}

Ed 002, The expectation is that Mbappe will join Madrid. I know you don't like to speculate on timing, but what is different now? when he has had the opportunity to go there multiple times before?

{Ed002's Note - Because his contract is running out in June.}

Hi Ed002

I just had a question i was a little curious about. Girona are having an excellent season so far in La Liga and are certainly in with a shout of securing champions league football. Their majority owners however are the City football group.

Would they still be able to compete in the Champions League should they qualify (And of course, assuming Man City qualify) - would they be able to compete against each other?

{Ed002's Note - CFG do not own the majority of Girona.}

Hi Ed002,

Have just seen reports that Origi might leave AC Milan this summer. Do you know of any clubs that are interested?

Cheers

{Ed002's Note - Divock Origi (F) Apparently down the list for West Ham - I doubt the fans would be happy if they signed him. Sheffield United have spoken with his agent about what demands they have. Real Betis may have an interest depending on a departure.}

Terse response from the Spanish U21 set up (along the lines of "he does not score many goals for an attacker") when told he was changing his allegiance to Ghana, like his brother - and that led to him changing back to Spain. There was plenty of interest in him last year so a new long-term contract and buy out clause were awarded to the player. Looked at by PSG, Liverpool, Juventus, Chelsea and Real Madrid. Real Madrid see the asking price as too high but might make an offer. Atletico or Arsenal may provide wildcard options, depending on departures.}

Any interest in Yeremi Pino this summer Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yeremy Pino (RW/LW/AM) His agent spoke with Manchester City and Chelsea last summer about the player but Pino agreed a new contract at Villareal with a significant €80M buy-out clause and a contract to 2027. Manchester City have other targets to replace Mahrez. Chelsea have kept him on a list of potential wide players at the behest of an ex-player who was offered the job of DoF at the club. Barcelona opted for Raphina but would now be happy to move him on. His agent also spoke with Manchester United and proposed him as a potential Sancho replacement. Was orginally the first choice replacement for Pepe at Arsenal but is no longer, although they may retain an interest. Real Madrid have him on their lengthy list of potential replacesments for Eden Hazard. Prior interest of Liverpool as a Salah replacement will have gone.}

Is there any current interest in Zubimendi?

Hi Ed hope you're having a great summer.

Any clubs interested in Joao Felix that you know of?

{Ed002's Note - Joao Felix (AM/F) Chelsea had no option to buy in the loan agreement but Atletico did give them an eye watering fee for which he would be available, but Chelsea would not pay the full asking price, and they have already agreed the transfer of a similar player for the summer so he returned to Atletico. Benfica offer an option for Joao Felix to return, and the player is open to that. They may seek an initial loan or a slightly creative solution - that may well suit Atletico as the coach wants the player gone as soon as possible. Real Madrid are keen on him but would want to include players in any deal and they are now turning all efforts to Mbappe. Barcelona may look to him again but they are still working on wage issues that need to be resolved so can do nothing this summer. Manchesteer United may offer a wildcard option but they already have Bruno Fernandes and there pressing need is for other positions. Interest of Bayern Munich and Manchester City will have gone. PSG attract the player but they have other targets. Newcastle approached Atletico but I understand the player would have no interest in a move there.}

Ed is Vlahovic likely to leave? Who is interested and is there any truth that Chelsea have bid? Thank you in advance

{Ed002's Note - Dusan Vlahovic (S) Only joined in January 2022 but financial issues that Juventus now have will likely determine if he is sold in the summer. Regardless of his loss of form, there will be a lot of interest if he is and his agent has approached Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are also keen. Chelsea may be open to an exchange of players and he is the likely first choice as they have held discussions over two other players with Juventus. As a wildcard, Arsenal may rekindle interest but would likely want to include players in any deal and Aston Villa seek a high profile addition. Seen as a potential addition by Atletico although they can likely be discounted.}

Ed002 is there interest in raphinha thanks

{Ed002's Note - Raphinha (RW/LW) Has struggled to displace Dembele or Ansu Fati on a regular basis and will be sold if Barcelona can recover the fee they paid for him. Newcastle may be an option. Even Arsenal perhaps.}

19 May 2023 12:21:26
Ed would Inter sell Lautaro? Would he look to move? And does Pochettino coming maybe move him to or closer to first choice for Chelsea?

{Ed002's Note - Emiliano Martinez (G) Aston Villa will resist a sale but Spurs see Martinez as a Lloris replacement and West Ham see him as a Fabianski replacement. He is on the lengthy list Chelsea has compiled. Bayern Munich offer a wildcard option. Interest of Manchester United remains, but he is not first choice. It is nothing to do with Pochettino.}

Thanks a lot for answering Ed but I asked about Lautaro Martinez, apologies for any confusion

Hi Ed, is Gavi staying at Barcelona? My mates telling me something about his contract running down?

Cheers

{Ed002's Note - They are teasing you.

Gavi (CM/AM) Chelsea see Gavi as a potential Mason Mount replacement but Barcelona could block a move demanding his full buy out clause although Cheslea have a declared interest with his club and would likely be willing to pay €100M and completely put aside interest in Bellingham who they have concerns about. Talks with his agents identified a significant signing on fee being required. The leading advisor to Chelsea is urging to club to push ahead - the same advisor is advocating a Spanish coach. Bayern Munich may offer a wildcard option. Barcelona will attempt to solve their Salary Cap issues and keep hold of the player who is contracted to 2026. Barcelona fouled up his registration for this season but expect everything will be settled with summer departures.}

Any interest in Manuel Ugarte and Zubimendi?

Manuel Ugarte (DM) Interest of Leeds went when Sporting refulsed to negotiate a reduction in his buy out clause and now want to give him a new contract and increase it. Wolves, Spurs and PSG have shown an interest but none will meet his buy out clause and Spurs have moved on to other targets. Newcastle offer a wilcard option and are keen.
Martin Zubimendi (CM/DM) Barcelona may still look to an offer although they are looking at preferred options first. Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea have sent scouts. Real Sociedad may look to refusing a transfer unless his buy out clause is met in full.

Hey ed, would Atlético be willing to sell/loan João Felix? If so, who would be interested in him? For some reason I don't know, he's not being used that much this season.

{Ed002's Note - Joao Felix (AM/F) Approaches for him from Bayern Munich and Barcelona were rejected last summer although they just may return. Manchester City have a preferred option now but could turn to him as a cheaper alternative, but I think it unlikely. Manchester United could look to an offer but would not be an attractive solution. Juventus, Milan and Inter have enquired after a loan as Atletico need to reduce their wage bill - that won't suit Atletico. His agent has spoken with PSG, Chelsea and Spurs - and both Chelsea and PSG may be interested depending on departures. Diego Simeone and Atletico are not going to block a move but may force him to provide a formal transfer request.}

Hi Ed

With both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona exiting the Champions League at the group stages, are either club looking to sell players in January, and which players might the clubs be trying to sell?

{Ed002's Note - De Jong.}

Hi Ed,

You think Man United are going to renew their interest in De Jong or do they have other targets in mind now?

Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - He is still not keen on leaving Barcelona but clubs will see him as an alternate to Jude Bellingham. Nothing will happen in January.}
