Hi Ed002,

Lots of rumours circulating that Madrid are very much serious about taking Mbappe this summer and are currently negotiating with PSG over his potential signing.

Doesn't sound too feasible to me, however I'm aware you've said they are definitely interested in signing him this summer. Is there any updates regarding this and could we see Madrid pay the money to bring him in?

{Ed002's Note - I have explained for the past year that this is the plan. They want Mbappe this summer and Haaland next summer. I am not sure what sort of updates you are expecting.}

Ed002, I've heard that Boubacar Kamara from Marseille could be available this summer. He looks like one of those players who could make a move and explode into a top player as he seems to fly under the radar of a lot of media outlets.

Do you know which clubs would be interested in signing him?

{Ed002's Note - Boubacar Kamara (CB/DM) Marseille do not want to sell and interest from PSG will obviously go nowhere. However, at the right price (it was €60M including all costs but will now be a third of that) he is be available in the summer - Barcelona would like him but not at that cost. Chelsea and Manchester City both maintain an interest but he would likely not be a starter. An unusual offer was made last summer but Chelsea resisted to see what happens with emerging players available to them. Manchester City have been in regular contact with Marseille and may well look for an early conclusion if the player can be persuaded. There is interest from Barcelona who want the player and a member of Marseille's staff to join them. Lazio, Newcastle, Milan and Lyon are interested, although Milan recently asked after him when discussing another player but have also recently messed Marseille around recently and Newcastle do not provide an attractive option. Bayern Munich have him on their list as a Jerome Boateng replacement. Juventus are looking to add a DM player and they need to lower the age of their squad but they are nearing an agreement for their first choice. He is attractive to clubs as he can comfortably play as a CB or a DM. But attitude and not signing a new contract are putting clubs off. The lady from Marseille would ideally like a deal with Chelsea, but their efforts are elsewhere right now.}

Good day Ed002; please who is interested in Leon Goretzka? And is Bayern Munich looking to sell him?

{Ed002's Note - Leon Goretzka (CM) Bayern Munich have made it clear that they want to agree a new contract but will not be held to ransom. Interest of Spurs has gone. Manchester United and Barcelona have him on their lists of options for midfield but a move is perhaps unlikely.

Ed002, is it true that Bayern are also having the same issue with Kimmich in terms of extending his contract?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated, his agent is making requests the club see as beyond reasonable.}

Hello Ed

Is any body looking to take Darwin Nunez this summer?

{Ed002's Note - Darwin Nunez (S) Benfica don't want to sell Nunez but they have had interest from two sides. Manchester City enquired about Darwin Nunez were told he won't be available before 2022. MIlan may still push as they plan to add a striker regardless of what happens in respect of Ibrahimovic and Mandzukic - but they have significant financial issues which means they will need to sell other assets as they have other players they wish to add aswell and he is the most expensive of their three primary striker targets. Real Madrid could turn to him as a replacement for Mariano Diaz. Barcelona were told they would have to pay his €150M release clause to sign him.}

Hi Ed002,

Any interest in Noni Madueke? seems like a really promising player.

{Ed002's Note - Noni Madueke (RW) Madueke has said he has no intention of returning to England any time soon - he had options when he left Spurs but opted for PSV where they deal very well with youth players. PSV have said they would want €35M which led to Leeds and Lille stepping back although there is interest from RBL and someone at PSV says he has been watched by Leicester and Bayer Leverkusen. Leeds would perhaps still be interested at a lower fee as a Raphinha replacement. PSV don't intend to sell this summer but Borussia Dortmund has him on their list of potential Sancho replacements - and are keen.}

Cheers Ed002, Seem's to have a good head on his shoulders. Leeds or any of the aforementioned German clubs seem like smart moves development-wise if he eventually leaves.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2021 20:16:44
What teams are interested in Raphinha?

{Ed002's Note - Raphinha (RW) Leeds are expecting offers in the summer and wanted Michael Olise or Emiliano Buendia to replace him should a significant offer be accepted. However, both have moved elsewhere. I am not aware of any approach or declaration of interest from Liverpool at this time but the suspicion is that Manchester United have discussed him whilst enquiring after another player with his agent. Borussia Dortmund have a declared interest but have other preferences for replacing Sancho.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2021 18:38:48
Thanks.
I think he'd be a good signing for a champions league team. I can see him really kicking on as a player over the next couple of years.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2021 14:39:26
Afternoon Ed002 is there interest in Lille players Sven Botman and Jonathan David? Thanks.

Jonathan David (AM/F) Although Lille are facing serious money problems like all clubs, they are not looking to sell David on so soon after buying him with prior interest of Bayer Leverkusen now gone but residual interest of Bayern Munich remaining.

{Ed002's Note - Sven Botman (CB) Spurs, Inter Milan and Everton have a declared interest in the player with prior interest of Liverpool and Manchester United having gone. Ajax let him go because he was considered a little clumsy and slow for the game they play. Inter may push.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

18 Jul 2021 20:28:08
Thanks Ed002! Both seem good players in my opinion and judging by the level of the clubs interested but there shouldn't be any rush to leave at their age and especially with CL football again.

Hey ed, is there anything new on Donyell malen and Ryan Gravenberch?

{Ed002's Note - (a) Dortmund have not yet agreed terms for Malen so there is nothing new. (b) Mino has discussed Gravenberch with a number of clubs but the asking price would need to drop to get any firm interest.}

Ed002, who is on Dortmund's list to replace Håland if someone does agree a deal for him?

{Ed002's Note - After losing out on Isak and Satriano, Vlahovic, Moffi, and Kalajdzic are some of the options they have been considering.}

Hello Ed. Luis Diaz had a great Copa America with Colombia, are any clubs showing any interest in him?

Hi Ed002 and Sparky,

Hope you are both well.

Very transparent of me I know but do you have any further info on what the future may hold for the following players;

Kieran Trippier
Rafa Varane
Eduardo Camavinga

Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - Keiran Trippier (RB) Atletico will sell. They are likely hoping for Everton interest as well as Manchester United but that may have left with CA.
Raphael Varane (CB) If he does not sign a renewal he will be sold in the summer - possibly leaving Real Madrid needing to add three CBs. Manchester United have a preferred target but could be tempted. Mr Mourinho was looking for a way to sign Varane for Spurs in the summer but he will now be off the list for them. He is also on the list of CB options the Chelsea coach has identified but the wages will likely put them off. He may yet sign a new deal if he thinks the club are moving in the right direction with ZZ gone. The player wants a new challenge and PSG may push for him in their quest for a leading French player to join to keep the fans appeased.
Eduardo Camavinga (DM/CM) Rennes will look for a summer auction as he the player has no interest in signing a new contract. Serious approaches for Camavinga have been made by Real Madrid, PSG, Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs - but Arsenal can be discounted as they do not have the money nor the real need for the player and Spurs, and possibly Manchester United will push but they are not attractive destinations for many players. Interest has also been shown by Borussia Dortmund (who were quoted €100M), Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Manchester City, Atletico Madrid and Genk - but the last two can be discounted as they simply don't have the funds and the others have other targets. He is perhaps a little way from first team football at the highest level but PSG, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are also considering taking a chance on him in the summer but will not pay the revised COVID-19 asking price of €75M and with Zidane departing Real Madrid that might change. His price will drop further to reflect the huge losses French clubs have incurred and he is entering the final year of his contract. Bayern Munich see him as an option to Zakaria. There was a discussion about the player with Chelsea who have a very good relationship with Rennes, but they have a preferred option and see the price as too high - but perhaps something could be negotiated depending on departures which would be the driver for Chelsea. PSG would be best placed right now as Real Madrid have other priorities. If Manchester United push for a move it won't be at €25M or whatever is being quoted by someone on Twitter. The player has made it clear he wants to move to PSG at some point.}

Rumours started at €30m but the magic number now seems to have gone up to around €40m which seems more realistic based on what you have said Ed hope united manage to pull it of, hopefully keep psg away by selling them pogba!

Ed002 who is interested in mukiele thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Nordi Mukiele (RB/CB) RBL have been approached by Atletico Madrid over the availability of NM as a Trippier replacement but he is not top of their list aand RBL are looking to him extending his contract. PSG had him on their list of RB options but have signed someone else.}

Hi ed, has there been any interest shown in Nice's Youcef Atal this summer? If so, from who?

I really thought he'd be on the move to a bigger club but I guess his recurrent injuries have held him back.

Thanks.

Hi ed001,

If you're not too busy, could we please get a profile on Jamal Musiala? Been seeing a lot of hype around him and was wondering whether he's really all that.

Thanks a ton!

{Ed001's Note - I have added him to the list, I remember he was being very hyped up while at Chelsea and, if I remember correctly they tried to bring him back from Bayern.}

Hey Ed002, is there any interest in Leon Goretzka? He's just approaching the final year of his contract and I assume will therefore be available to talk to some clubs. Was wondering if anyone was interested and what the situation was with him as he's a fantastic player. Thanks in advance :)

{Ed002's Note - Leon Goretzka (CM) Bayern Munich have made it clear that they want to agree a new contract but will not be held to ransom. Interest of Spurs has gone. Barcelona have him on a list of options for midfield but a move is perhaps unlikely.}

Hi Ed002,

Kingsley Coman has supposedly set his sigts on a move to the prem after rejected a new contract offer, which clubs may be interested in taking him?

Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Kingsley Coman (LW/RW) Bayern Munich are open to moving the player on and adding a fresh face. He has already been discussed with an English side but they have not made an offer and it is dependent on a departure. The player has not ruled out signing a new contract but there may not be a good enough offer coming. The asking price could be beyond what any club will pay. Nagelsmann would like him to stay.}

Hello Ed
Can I enquire about the futures of Giminez Koulibaly Skriniar and Sule? Great Center back defenders if there any interest in these guys?

{Ed002's Note - (a) Jose Gimenez (CB) Atletico still have serious money problems that they can resolve by selling one of Oblak or Saul but will fight to keep Koke and Gimenez. Manchester City and Chelsea have each been quoted the full €120M cash payment required to even have Gimenez consider a move. Effectively priced out of a move. (b) Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) Bayern Munich have put in an offer for KK that is much less (about half) than Napoli's valuation of €50M but financial issues may see Napoli either accept the deal - which I am told the player wants, or to ask for offers from elsewhere which is what Napoli have done with his agent. Although Carlo Ancelotti knows the player well it is unlikely Everton could raise the funds and Real Madrid won't be interested. A move to a Spanish club is probably not possible for legal reasons and the interest of PSG, Manchester City and Manchester United has likely gone due to his age. He would certainly give Klopp the starter he wants and there is no doubt about how good he is, but €50M for a 30 year old would not seem like good business. I am not aware of any offer but Liverpool may well have spoken with his agents. (c) Milan Skriniar (CB) Inter are not looking to sell but the interest of Mr Mourinho may have stayed at Spurs - Real Madrid have him on a lengthy list of CBs but would want to include a player in any deal. (d) Niklas Sule (CB) Tuchel is keen on the player and is one of three CBs he identified to the club - but would need to convince others at the club and I would expect Bayern Munich to reject anything but a very good cash only offer given they have lost two CBs already for the summer.}
