Ed002, is there any interest in Jahkeele Marshall-Rutty?

{Ed002's Note - The kiddie from Toronto has attracted scouts from Europe but he is only 15 or 16.}

Hey Ed
You've mentioned a couple of times Dortmund plan to sell a number of players.
Any chance of summary of ins and outs, if you get chance

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Possible departures:
No CL next season could see further departures particularly given 10 players will be entering the last year of their contracts. Will promote from within, perhaps take players in exchange and will look to a couple of very good additions to replace Sancho and possibly Haaland.

The riot act has been read to Sancho and Tobias Raschl by Favre I understand.

Roman Burki (G) Dortmund want an upgrade but will look to keep Burki and let Hitz leave as a Free Agent.
Marwin Hitz (G) Free Agent.
Felix Passlack (RB) Free Agent but a new deal will be offered.
Lukasz Piszczek (RB) eldrly Free Agent.
Marcel Schmelzer (LB) Free Agent.
Manuel Akanji (CB) will make way if BD can secure the signing of Simakan (won't happen as he heading elsewhere).
Axel Witsel (DM) will need to prove his fitness and finding a buyer will be difficult but will be available for a nominal fee in the summer.
Mahmoud Dahoud (CM) will be available for a nominal fee in the summer.
Giovanni Reyna (AM) Real Madrid are keen at the right price but Dortmund still see him as a player they wish to keep.
Julian Brandt (AM) again a player who was being considered by Arsenal. He would be a reasonable price and would be an Oezil replacement but it will now depend on the future of MO.
Jadon Sancho (RW) Manchesteer United messed everybody around last year and he has again been offered elsewhere. If Manchester United want him they are going to have to agree a deal before the summer.
Erling Braut Haaland (S) It would take a lot of money plus a player or two in exchange to make it work in 2021 for Real Madrid, and that would only be the case if Mbappe does not sign in the summer, which is looking to likely be the case right now with him staying in Paris a year or two more - but EH is still potentially a priority for Real Madrid in 2022 unless something changes during next season. And if the money stretches, there will also be interest from Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Chelsea and Juventus - although Bayern Munich have priorities to deal with in defence and Juventus accept their focus is on someone else. I expect Manchester City and Chelsea to try this coming summer although Dortmund will resist a sale in the summer but may commit to a 2022 sale. Depending on the election result, there is a slim chance Barcelona could also look to him in 2022, but I think it unlikely. A cash offer from Chelsea interests his representative and Dortmund would push for a player from Chelsea as well - although they would need to wait a year before he can join. Manchester City had a preferred first choice target as an Aguero replacement but he will almost certainly not be available now, so their focus will shift.

Interest in:
Thomas Strakosha (G) First choice for Borussia Dortmund.
Peter Gulacsi (G) RBL don't wish to sell and the player seems happy, yet his agent has been pushing for a move to Borussia Dortmund who are on the hunt for a new GK.
Odysseas Vlachodimos (G) At the right price Benfica will sell.

Mohamed Simakan (RB/CB) Strasbourg defender who Burnley, Monaco, Rennes, Lyon, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and Atalanta are keen on but has agreed a move to replace Upamecano at RBL in the summer. Aston Villa have made an enquiry with his agent. Milan enquired and are very but ideally want include a player in exchange. But they are very keen. Chelsea can offer cash plus a player on loan which may suit Strasbourg. There have been discussions but his representation has a different focus to most.
Anel Ahmedhodzic (CB) PSV and Ajax offer good solutions - interest of Borussia Dortmund (who have lost out on signing their first choice CB), Milan and Chelsea is a problem as game time will be hard to find. One to keep an eye on.
Konrad Laimer (CM/DM) RBL are aware that there are clubs looking at Konrad Laimer for next summer and some of the interest is driven by the price of Zakaria which has put interested sides off. Bayern Munich have considered Laimer, as have Borussia Dortmund (as a Weigl replacement) and Manchester United (but not until they have sorted out their midfield problems).
Florian Neuhaus (CM) There remains significant interest in the Borussia Muenchengladbach player with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund seeing him as a player who will continue to improve. Real Madrid see him as an option in midfield and his representative has made no secret that there has been interest from elsewhere including Manchester City, Spurs, Juventus and the Milanese clubs, but Milan seems a less likely destination. Borussia Dortmund will push hard for him but they have growing money issues and the new coach will not move for him. I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool at this time.
Christian Eriksen (AM) Interest has drifted away
Kays Ruiz-Atil (CM/LM/AM) Chelsea, Marseille and Borussia Dortmund want to take the kiddie who is out of contract in the summer from PSG. Still only 18, Chelsea's interest goes back a couple of years and the addition of Tuchel will see the interest revived.
Tanguy Coulibaly (RW/F) First choice Sanch replacement. They have a lengthy list of alternatives.
Charlie Webster (LW/RW) Seen as the next generation Sancho.
Jayden Braaf (LW/F) Option as a Sancho replacement.
Donyell Malen (F) Arsenal want to resign the player to replace Lacazette. Borussia Dortmund have him on their list of Sancho replacements.
Brian Brobbey (S) RBL have been discussing a move with Mino and have made an offer to Ajax which has been rejected. Bayer Leverkusen have a declared interest but Mino would like him to move to Borussia Dortmund to replace Haarland, but that would be ahuge step up for the kid. A discussion between Bayern Munich and Mino resulted in a termination clause being included in any deal - which they don't like the idea of. He will likely be offered to a couple of English sides as well.
Marcus Forss (S) Brentford Striker being considered by Borussia Dortmund and West Ham. Not going to happen this year.

Hello Ed002, is there any interest in Lucas Gourna-Douath of ASSE?

{Ed002's Note - Lucas Gourna-Douath (DM) PSG want to take him back to Paris but he has been advised that he would not get playing time in the B side and may need to settle in the U19s until Bitumazala and, particularly, Ahamada M'Ze. There has actually been a real stink kicked up over the whole thing.}

Hi Ed002,

Perhaps you've answered this before so apologies if you have but could you shed some light on the situation in Ligue 1 and how that's affecting clubs?

Not just from a transfer perspective (but I assume more players will need to be sold to help out) but there must be some clubs in real financial danger is there anything underway to help the clubs?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - The early conclusion of the 19/20 season cost Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 clubs significant income (about €925M) and the collapse of the broadcast deal as cost more than €1B in income to the clubs. Empty stadiums have pretty much killed the income streams for the clubs and the FFF do not have the funds to compensate the clubs and are supporting Ligue 1 in trying to obtain a significant loan from the Government - that is in hand at the moment. Whilst PSG, Monaco, Marseille and St Etienne are suffering they are in a better place than others, and some are in a far worse financial position with the chance that some Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 clubs could go out of business before the summer. Selling players is one option to bring money in, and efforts are being made by clubs to agree sales for the summer. Clubs like Strasbourg have problems and they were relying on the sale of a player to help see them through - now he is injured.}

Morning Eds,

Hope you're well!

How come scottish clubs can sign players within scotland to pre-contracts?
And is this common around Europe or do they also follow the English pre-contract agreements of 6 months or less (Must be moving outside of England)?

Hope that makes sense!

Believable0 Unbelievable0

25 Jan 2021 11:24:38
Clubs can still sign player to pre-contract agreements if they go through the club they are registered to at the time.

24 Jan 2021 15:20:09
Ed002, I had a couple of questions to ask you if you have the time:

1) With FIFA and other confederations trying to block an European Super League, is there any update on the matter?

2) Will FIFA's new loan rules come into place in the summer?

3) Is there any update on the Stamford Bridge redevelopment plans?

Thank you in advance!

{Ed002's Note - (1) There is nothing new with several options remaining on the table. (2)There have been some changes this season and there will be more next. (3) Not really. Nothing will happen for a while.}

Hey Ed002

What's your opinion of Patson Daka?
Is there interest from any clubs?

{Ed002's Note - Patson Daka (S) the player signed a new contract at RBS last season when he was assured of the chance to replace Haaland - a chance he has taken very well under Jesse Marsch. RBL could be interested in taking him in the future but the timing is not right now as RBS have no intention of selling. He is a player who would depart for AFCON which puts many clubs off. His agent and his assistant (Freddie Kanoute) have offered him around without the permission of RBS - this will be driven by the far higher wages offered elsewhere and certainly Lomdon-based clubs have been approached including Crystal Palace who have previously made an offer for him and Spurs. I suspect West Ham and Arsenal will also have been approached.}

Hello Ed02

Can I ask about two Brazil league players
Is there any clubs that want to bring them to Europe they look really good in few games I see. The players in question is the CF Yuri Alberto (Internacional) and GK Celiton (Red Bull Bragantino)
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Yuri Alberto only recently moved and I am not aware any interest in him - although my notes say he impressed scouts playing for Brazil at the U-17 South American Championships in 2017 - but the picks were Vinicius Junior (who has done well) and Lincoln (who has ended up in Japan). When at Atletico Mineiro Cleiton was of interest to Rayo Vallecano and there was a discussion with Sevilla about a straight swap for Guilherme Arana. Being part of the Red Bull "family" there will be a route to Europe if needed.}

Merci Ed
And can I ask if you know anything in the future on Ralf Rangnick is he still available he has versatility in his possible roles at football clubs, is there any clubs trying to get him?

{Ed002's Note - Rangnick will be looking for a project with full responsibility at a senior level, perhaps more than simply a club.}

We can rule MU out then.

Ed002, have you heard of any interest in Daniel Cabral of Flamengo?

Ed002 who is interested in bruno guimaraes, neuhaus and adam hlozek thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Adam Hlozek (F) a player who you will hear a lot about in the coming years - but another kiddie. RBL and Borussia Dortmund have shown interest for more than a year.

I am not aware of interest in the others.}

Hey ed, anyone interested in Milot Rashica from Bremen? According to rumours in Germany, Bremen would be open to sell him. Arsenal still interested?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Milot Rashica (LW/F) A decent Grealish replacement if he can be persuaded to make the move. Injured up to now this season but he can be sold as soon as the asking price is matched and he can pass a medical. RBL and Aston Villa have a declared interest in the player. Bayer Leverkusen stepped back because of the price - I am not aware of Arsenal ever being interested.}

Hi Eds,

Is there any interest in Pedro Goncalves from Sporting?
I understand he's only signed in 2020, but he looks to have some potential and i would think clubs are already sniffing.

Cheers as always for your hard work and Happy New Year!

{Ed002's Note - Sporting say that there has been no direct approach from another side about the kid but admitted to have had a Spurs scout watch him.}

ED002,

Which clubs if any, do you expect to show any activity during the Jan transfer window. i'd imagine more clubs will be looking to sell players before they buy due to C.V.

{Ed002's Note - There will be plenty of clubs buying and selling players. You cannot have more selling than buying.}

ed002 who is interested in boubacar kamara thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Boubacar Kamara (CB) Marseille do not want to sell. Manchester City have been in constant contact over the player for nearly a year. There is interest from Barcelona who want the player and a member of Marseille's staff to join them. Milan asked after him when discussing another player and Bayern Munich have him on their list as a Jerome Boateng replacement.}

Hi Ed, sorry to be a pain, but could you give the latest lowdown on the future of Camavinga please? Many thanks and happy holidays.

{Ed002's Note - Eduardo Camavinga (DM/CM) if the player continues his good performances Rennes will look for a summer 2021 auction. Serious approaches for Camavinga have been made by Real Madrid, PSG, Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs - but Arsenal can be discounted as they moved to buy Partey and Spurs will likely not be of interest. Interest has also been shown by Borussia Dortmund (who were quoted €100M), Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Genk - but I would discount all of these now. There has been a discussion with Chelsea but he won't be a priority for them unless Kante were to depart and other options were not available. A move to England for the kiddie is less likely than a move to Spain. PSG and Real Madrid were considering taking a chance on him in the summer of 2020 but would not pay the revised COVID-19 asking price of €75M. Julien Stephan says they want to keep him and has explained that an early move could stall his career through lack of game time. In 2021 - he is a primary target for Real Madrid.}
