Hi Eds,

I recall you saying a while back (Before the crazy times) that Madrid intended to break the bank for Mbappe this summer. Is that still a goal of theirs if they manage to get some players off the books? Or has the virus ruled it out?

Apologies if this has been asked recently, I searched this and the Madrid page and didn't find anything recent. Thanks.

Miike

{Ed002's Note - No, he will move next year - and I would never use a cliche like "break the bank". Real Madrid are looking at extensive sales to cover losses.}

Yeah this was loosely from memory so likely paraphrasing. Thanks for the info.

Ed, out of interest do you still hold a high opinion of Setien? What do you think has gone wrong at Barca.

Miike

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know which Ed this is addressed at.}


1.) 14 Aug 2020 23:03:18
Ed01 I believe, apologies. I recall him speaking very highly of him. I'd appreciate either of your views on Setien at Barcelona however.

{Ed001's Note - Barca have been a mess for years and Setien was brought in to be a fall guy as no one wanted him there. The club is being run by players with far too much power and it is in need of ripping up and starting again. Setien was never going to do anything but fail, it is a club at war with itself.}


2.) 14 Aug 2020 23:23:28
Yeah it didn't appear that the players had much desire to play under Setien. If nothing changes, would you expect the next manager to face the same sort of fate? Also, what do you suppose the future might hold for Setien? Another opportunity at another La Liga side further down the table perhaps?

{Ed001's Note - there will be a change of president at Barca so it will all change.

Setien will be back in La Liga i am sure.}

I 100% agree with you Ed001. Personally it's time to say to goodbye to Messi. But good luck to any club taking his wage on. Newell Old Boys I can see but not for a few years. I don't have a clue where to start to re-boot the club where it needs to be.

{Ed001's Note - Inter Miami would surely be his destination if he leaves?}

I agree.

There’s no doubting Messi’s amazing career or that he still has the ability to do amazing things, but he has too much freedom to offer nothing else to the game.

In my opinion, If you’re going to accept that when he’s in possession is the only time he’s going to offer you something, then you need a hard working team to cover those falls. But they don’t have that. A bunch of show ponies and fairies, that are lazy, past it or just aren’t good enough. There seems no clear plan or cohesion there. I really do think they are better off just stripping it down and rebuilding again.

I feel Messi is a great player but iniesta and xavi made him that great player.

With Malcom joining Barcelona, is there any more news regarding Dembele? I assume Barcelona are still very keen to sell, is there any progress on that front. Couldn't see any recent updates on the matter on the pages I checked

Was just wondering if you could update us on the clubs considering a loan/ purchase and if any are considered front runners right now?

Miike

{Ed002's Note - The problem with Ousmane Dembele is the asking price being far too high. They will try to include him in part of a transaction if they can. There are no takers at the money they want.}


1.) 24 Jul 2018 23:51:53
Any idea which clubs/ players Barcelona may target for a player exchange?

And would Barcelona consider a loan at all, Or is that out of the equation would you think?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - They are not going to "target" players like that. They need cash so have to sell. They have players to move on and they will include them in transactions where they can.}

ed does malcom signing end there interest in willian.

{Ed002's Note - Malcom won't be moving to Barcelona.}


3.) 25 Jul 2018 11:04:18
you mean willian?

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

Hi Eds,

Was wondering if you could shed some light on why Real Madrid would consider selling Varane? Seen it mentioned every now and then on various parts of the site, and it seems bizarre that they would consider that given I can't think of a better CB they could buy.

Miike

{Ed001's Note - injuries, he is not reliable.}

Hi Eds,

Any updates on the Koulibaly situation? I understand Napoli have said they will sell him in the summer should an acceptable offer be received. Do you know of any clubs who may look to make such an offer?

Miike

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed - clubs see the asking price as far too high.}
