Ed002, I read that Luis Campos has been released by Lille, not sure how true this is. Do you know if Man Utd have an interest in him as a DOF or will they continue to act lorn amateurs?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach by Manchester United although he was the Director of Football that Mr Mourinho wanted when he was at the club. The job he planned to move to has now gone, the interest of another side will go nowhere due to a conflict of personalities, leaving one club of interest right now. I suspect he will take his time and see what firm offers are made.}

Hi Ed002,

Is there any interest in Duje Caleta-Car and Florian Thauvin?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Duje Caleta-Car (CB) Manchester City have made a general enquiry about availability of the left sided CB - previous interest of Seville has gone. West Ham have asked the lady from Marseille (who was in London at the moment over another matter) to meet with them on to discuss Morgan Sanson and Caleta-Car. Marseille don't want to sell this summer, the player wants to play in the Champions League with them and expect Manchester City will follow up next summer. But Marseille need money.
Flaurian Thauvin (RW) future is likely in Italy as a new contract is proving difficult to agree - Milan, Inter, Roma and Atalanta have shown an interest but the advances of Milan were reject in that they want to only part exchange the players. Valencia were interested when Ferran Torres left but opted to give Jason a run. Nice enquired but don't have the cash.

Much appreciated Ed002 do you know if Marseille believe Caleta-Car can reach the highest level? I'm surprised by City's interest given he centre backs they have.

{Ed002's Note - They have a need to raise money and expect him to do well, but would rather sell others first. They have a couple of other issues going on right now but are likely going to try and tweak the team next summer - but they would like him to stay on.}

Good evening ed002.
There are rumours circulating that Campos had addled to be released from his contract at Lille do you know if there is any truth in this? Do you know if he is considering other options or if any club is interested in bringing him in?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There are two sides interested in him and this has been going on all summer - there is nothing new.}

{Ed002's Note - There has been interest from Chelsea and Spurs but he opted for Zenit only 18 months ago and it is going well there for him.}

Ed002, what happened to FIFA's new loan rules that would have restricted the total loanees from one club to 6-8 (excluding U-24, HG players)?

{Ed002's Note - It has yet to be ratified. Probably for next season.}

Just wondered if there was any interest in Jens Hauge and Victor Boniface of Bodo/ Glimt?

Look pretty decent youngsters.
Cheers as always for your hardwork 👍.

{Ed002's Note - Jens Petter Hauge (LW/RW) Milan, Reading, Aberdeen and Manchester United are some of the sides who have sent scouts to Norway to watch him. I am not aware of interest in VB.}

Hi ed002, which teams are looking at Cavani? I think he would be a good option for Man It's although we don't seem to have any interest in him.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Atletico (too expensive), Benfica (too expensive), Real Madrid (short-term fix and possible).}

Bonjour Ed
I was wondering what you thoughts or the thoughts of those people you listen to think of edouard mendy. I must admit I never really thought of him of top class goalkeeper but I don’t watch much of Rennes to be honest with you, surprised to hear he is moving to top club in England myself is he better than what Chelsea have?

{Ed002's Note - He has been on a lengthy list of targets for PSG and Chelsea and as Chelsea cannot get their first choice it is not a surprise given the close relationship between Petr Cech and Rennes.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

23 Sep 2020 12:04:59
This first choice would be oblak Ed? If not correct who is?

{Ed002's Note - No but it is unimportant.}

Hi ED,
If you have time I hope you won't mind answering this.
With PSG losing Bernat to a long term injury, do you see them looking to the market for a replacement? If so, who would they likely look to, I remember something about them having interest in Telles but not sure how serious that was. Or do you think they have sufficient cover in Kurzawa and Bakker? Saying that, I think Kurzawa just got a 6 game ban!
Thanks for your time.

{Ed002's Note - They have a number of options who were seen as Kurzawa replacement but he is now staying. They will make a decision whether to do anything based on whether Mitchel Bakker steps up.}

Ed002, what is the current situation with David Alaba? Is he looking to move or is he trying to get a big new deal at Bayern? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - David Alaba (CB/LB) Bayern Munich have offered David Alaba a new contract but he has so far not agreed to sign it and is entering the final year of his existing deal. The club has had to use a makeshift defence this season but will sell Alaba this summer if he does not agree a new contract - letting them turn their attention to fixing the bigger defensive issue. Real Madrid considered Alaba as an option - but money is an issue this summer. Barcelona have also been interested in the past but have other priorities and again money is an issue. Manchester City have other preferred options and will only return if they are not fruitful and his is put up for sale. He won't be moving to Inter who have offered the option but want to include players. There were discussions in Lisbon and again back in Munich and the player still hopes to see if Real Madrid or Barcelona call for him - but both have priorities in other positions in a financially difficult market. Two other clubs have a declared interest but until he is available nothing can happen. The asking price for wages and agent fees to re-sign is huge - and there has been a lot of bickering.}

Hello ed002, is there any interest in David Neres? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - No. He missed most of last season due to injury and is not a player Ajax are looking to sell.}

Ed002, are there any club's interested in Leon Bailey of Bayer Leverkusen? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Leon Bailey (LW/RW) A player who has had his mojo drifting away and Bayer Leverkusen are open to moving on this summer. Spurs are keen but want the price to drop further. Prior interest of Everton and Leeds has drifted away - Everton already being over loaded with players who are predominently LW and Leeds have preferred options.}

Hi eds,

I've searched but can't find your recent updates regarding PSG and their transfer plans? Thought it would be an appropriate time to ask after the impending arrival of Florenzi.

Cheers.

Apologies Ed, not sure where to post this one but which clubs are after Josh King this summer please?

{Ed002's Note - Josh King (S) Manchester United failed to sign King in January and may well return. Aston Villa have an interest in taking Josh King. Enquiries have been made by other sides including Leeds and Spurs - but went no further.}

Hi Eds, hope you all are okay during this tough times.

Not transfer related but reading messi's saga with barcelona got me thinking about players and their contract. What I'm about to ask is if a player decides to retire but he is still bound by a contract to a club (lets say he still has one or two years of contract for the sake of argument), can the club force the player to cancel his retirement? Or does the player have to pay himself out of his contract to retire?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - If a player is retiring his contract remains with his club until it expires and the player does not get paid.}

On the subject of player contracts, have a read about Denny Solomona and the way he ‘retired’ from rugby league to get his move to a union club.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Sep 2020 13:30:02
I see, that makes sense. Thanks for the answer Ed have a good day.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2020 16:33:26
Wazza, I gave that a read and interestingly it was exactly what I had in mind regarding the messi saga. I tought can't messi just announce that he is retiring and then a month later comes out of retirement and join another club? It is obviously out of the question lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2020 16:14:32
AMPN the reason Solomona got away with it is because League and Union are two different sports. It wasn’t the right way for him to go about it, he was badly advised and it caused a big mess in the long term. I see your point though, La Liga and EPL could technically be seen as two different sports/ bodies but it obviously doesn’t work like that (for good reason) . Rugby League and Union does which allows a player to ‘retire’ from one sport and move to another.
