Ed002, what is currently going on with Donnarumma's contract extension?

{Ed002's Note - They are looking to agree a couple of points, one being wages and one being a termination claude related to the Champions League.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Mar 2021 10:37:16
I know I shouldn't ask your personal opinions on the matter, but do you think there is optimism over reaching an agreement over the terms that the player wants?

{Ed002's Note - The player does not set the terms.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi Ed's,

Just wondering if there is any interest in Kessie at Milan?

{Ed002's Note - He will not be available so no.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Feb 2021 11:54:50
Hi ed, was wondering if you knew of any interest in dybala and his situation at juventus?

Thanks, hope your keeping well.

{Ed002's Note - Paulo Dybala (AM/F) is available to sell or trade as the situation degrades further as again a problem with a certain individual arises - but the club want to agree a new deal but scratch the clause which is causing another problem. The original issue that blighted contract negotiations for two years would be an issue for potential buyers. The player is open to a move and may well have thrown away a year of his career. Was available at €100M last summer, but they would need to halve to find a cash buyer. If he can get over fitness and injury issues, Mr Mourinho might be keen to take him to Spurs if the right deal can be struck.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Feb 2021 16:06:11
Thanks ed, thought he might be good competition for bobby at Liverpool but clearly no interest. Be a good signing for spurs.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bonjour Ed002

Is any clubs looking at Ibanez at Roma, very good on the ball?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Roger Ibanez (CB) is only on loan - Roma will buy the player on June 30 at the end of his loan with Leicester, Spurs and Porto keen on taking the player if Roma want to turn a quick profit.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2021 20:57:48
Hello Ed02

Can I ask which teams if any would like to sign Bartłomiej Drągowski the Poland and Fiorentina GK?
Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any immediate interest in him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2021 21:14:37
Thanks you my friend.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jan 2021 21:49:04
Ed002, have you heard of any interest in Lazio's Raul Moro?

{Ed002's Note - Nope.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2021 17:48:40
Hey ed, anyone interested in Lorenzo Pellegrini? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Lorenzo Pellegrini (CM/DM/AM) Juventus have tried very hard to strike a deal but the player says that he is open to signing a new contract with Roma.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Dec 2020 11:13:15
Hi Ed. As a Dane I was wondering if you'd be willing to share if there's any interest in Eriksen? Apparently he's now for sale?

{Ed002's Note - Christian Eriksen (AM) Borussia Dortmund may offer a solution at the right price. Again PSG will look to an exchange with Leandro Paredes but Inter will again ask for some cash on top of any transaction but may be willing to forego that to resolve the situation.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Dec 2020 13:34:05
Thanks a lot for your reply. I think it would be interesting to see him at Dortmund so he could play with Delaney. I'm having a hard time seeing him be part of either Dortmund's or PSG's starting 11 though. Thanks anyways!

{Ed002's Note - For Dortmund it would be as a replacement for Brandt if he were to leave. For PSG it removes the problem child Paredes with a player who is more versatile.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Dec 2020 18:23:25
It's not related to my previous question, but curiosity leads me to ask this: Which teams are interested in Brandt?

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal are looking to add him as soon as they can.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Dec 2020 07:40:06
Would be a great signing for them, I think!

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Dec 2020 14:18:50
Hi eds,

Just read that Papu Gomez is possibly leaving Atalanta after a falling out with Gasperini. Apparently the cause of it all was that Gasperini had asked him to play on the right wing in the second half of a CL game and Gomez refused, before he was substituted for Ilicic, who allegedly sided with Gomez in this dispute. Is any of that true? It seems absolutely insane that this of all things would have caused a locker room civil war and the imminent departure of a club icon.

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Atalanta have held talks with two other sides about Papu Gomez - we will see what happens as they do not want players in exchange.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Dec 2020 02:20:55
ED, who is interested in SMS? Seems to be back to playing how he was a few seasons ago and I know he was coveted then by all the major clubs, so just wondering what the latest was. Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There is little interest in Sergej Milinkovic-Savic right now - he is seen as an option to another target by PSG but that is about it.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2020 11:49:26
Ed is there a possibility that De Ligt will leave Juventus any time soon? There are constant rumours about Man United and Real Madrid still being interested in him.

{Ed002's Note - No, and neither side have made any approach for him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Oct 2020 12:08:23
Ed002 with Spurs seemingly no longer in for Milan Skriniar, can I ask if any other clubs are interested?

{Ed002's Note - Other interested sides moved to alternate targets because the asking price at the time was seen as too high. Spurs remain very keen to get a deal done and Inter are continuing to offer him in part exchange.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Oct 2020 10:14:31
Thank you Ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Oct 2020 14:55:52
Hi Ed,

Papu Gomez of Atalanta has always seemed to be a brilliant player season in season out, is there a reason no bigger clubs have approached him or have they?

{Ed002's Note - He is well in to his 30s now and the only interested sides are from the Middle East (Al-Hilal Riyadh and Al-Nassr). I the past several "bigger" clubs have enquired but he and Atalanta have been happy.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2020 13:51:33
Hi Eds

It looks like it's not working out for Christian Eriksen at Inter

Has he been made available and if so where are the likely destinations for him?

{Ed002's Note - He is available and being offered in exchange for other players. There are no likely destinations and his wages would be a problem for most sides.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2020 14:03:12
Thanks Ed002

Could I be cheeky as ask about Koulibaly aswell for Napoli

It seems its likely he be staying now as no team is likely to meet Napoli asking price.

Can you see him most likely staying at Napoli now.

{Ed002's Note - The transfer costs against age and resale value for Koulibaly ended the interested of Manchester City. The only club that might yet make a deal possible is PSG but they are in talks over two others who are preferred.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Sep 2020 17:15:32
Thanks for the update Ed002. Much appreciated. Take Care.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2020 15:15:42
I think this is Ed001's favourite player? 😆 Raves over him at times.

{Ed001's Note - hahaha oh yes, what a, erm, average player...}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Sep 2020 23:30:18
Hard pick between him and Firmino Ed i reckon. 😬.

{Ed001's Note - something like that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Oct 2020 11:02:38
Sometimes I think Inter Milan just buy players for the sake of buying not that they need them (players), quite funny what Christian Eriksen was thinking when he decided to join Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan, even a novice like me knows that Antonio Conte doesn’t fancy playing with his type of midfielder; besides, Inter have got Sensi and Barella who can play like Eriksen. A player like Eriksen doesn’t deserve to a back up, he should be starting.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2020 17:42:19
Ed002, It appears a LB might be on the cards at United with Sergio Reguilon, Vitaliy Mykolenko and Alex Telles linked with United and rumours today of Nicolas Tagliafico.

Is there any interest in Atalanta's Robin Gosens? If not from United are there any other clubs looking at him. Personally he is a player I think should be considered by some of the top clubs as a great well rounded LB.
Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Robin Gosens (LB) Fiorentina enquired about availability but he is not first choice for them. Borussia Mönchengladbach have been looking at him with Oscar Wendt's career coming to an end. Lyon had an offer rejected in January but may look to him if they lose Bard. Leicester are keen but he is not first choice. Lyon are interest ed only if they lose Bard. Gosens is way down the list for Inter. RBL are looking for talks.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Sep 2020 15:49:53
I absolutely love Gosens mate. He always impresses a lot whenever I watch Atalanta. He stands out even in their system when the system is meant to function as a unit not individual strength.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2020 13:33:48
Hello Ed02, Is Insigne a free agent? has liverpool looked at him given he would bring muhc needed cover stop gap and is a player klopp likes.

cheers.

{Ed002's Note - No he is not a free agent.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Sep 2020 14:27:56
Thanks Mate.

31 Aug 2020 17:41:01
Hi Ed002

Is there any interest in Davide Calabria from Milan? Only asking as I just saw him out for dinner and was told he may be moving this summer.

{Ed002's Note - Davide Calabria (RWB) Interest of Sevilla has gone and putting aside a couple of rejected offers from Cagliari Calcio, talks have continued with Milan hopeful a deal can be done - they want cash rather than spread payments and bonuses.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2020 08:08:27
Hi Ed - please can you provide an update on who is interested in signing Sandro Tonali?

{Ed002's Note - Sandro Tonali (DM/CM) - A player who was being chased by Conte at Chelsea as a 17 year old and has continued to be of interest but it probably won't go anywhere unless Kante and Jorginho were to leave Chelsea and the kid changes his mind about playing outside of Italy. There was interest in the summer of 2019 from Liverpool, but it was seen as futile and expensive and not followed up. His reluctance to leave Italy ended PSG interest who then went for Idrissa Gueye and the €60M price killed the interest of Milan unless they can sell to raise the funds. Napoli, Inter, Fiorentina and Juventus remain interested with Manchester City, Barcelona and Chelsea keen if the kid is open to leaving Italy but MIlan remains Tonali's preferred destination - but that is unlikely. Realistically, Inter and Juventus would be the best solution as they will be looking to replace Matias Vecino and Blaise Matuidi (although also have Casemiro in mind) respectively. Both clubs would look to include at least one player in the deal, for Juventus it would be Nicolussi Caviglia. Brescia need the money to ringfence themselves and want a cash deal at €50M. I would discount all of the others.}

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Aug 2020 11:21:05
Thanks Ed great summary.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Aug 2020 12:38:59
Hello Ed
Do you know anything about Luiz Suarez Future I have heard Ajax are an option but he is still a top top player and could play in the big 5 leagues, any other teams trying for him?

{Ed002's Note - He is for sale and will be offered to Ajax as part exchange for van der Beek.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2020 13:15:07
Great Information.
Merci Ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2020 10:34:14
Hello Ed I asked on wrong page. Who is Milan Skriniar in talks with?

{Ed002's Note - There is interest from Spurs and Manchester City.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2020 10:42:47
Cheers Ed. So will it be one of him or Koulibaly for city?

{Ed002's Note - No, they have other options as well.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2020 16:52:43
Spurs and Manchester City are two clubs I think Chelsea can challenge for any player (at the moment) with, I see no reason why Chelsea shouldn’t be interested in Milan Skriniar too even though I know he won’t come cheap.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2020 08:40:29
Binjour Ed

Could Lorenzo Pellegeini be moving? I read he has a release clause.

{Ed002's Note - It has been a struggle to agree a new contract with Lorenzo Pellegrini, but they will.}

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Aug 2020 09:08:13
Okay probably not for a move this summer then.
Merci Ed.

{Ed002's Note - No, the interest will go nowhere.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2020 13:22:40
Hey eds,

Okay to ask about Atalanta transfer plans?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Potential Departures:

Atalanta have nearly 50 players who have been out on loan that they are in the process of assessing – they will decide on who to keep, who to sell and who to place on loan again.
Etrit Berisha (G) joined SPAL to run down his Atalanta contract
Timothy Castagne (RB) Milan and Spurs have enquired and been told he is not for sale.
Robin Gosens (LB) Fiorentina enquired about availability but he is not first choice for them. Borussia Mönchengladbach have been looking at him with Oscar Wendt's career coming to an end. Lyon had an offer rejected in January. Gosens is way down the list for Inter. RBL are looking for talks.
Lennart Czyborra (LB) will go on a loan to buy to Cagliari.
Gianluca Mancini (CB) moved to Roma.
Matteo Pessina (CM) Atalanta have Pessina on a two year loan at Verona at the moment and they have an option to buy the player at the end of the season at a fixed fee and there would be a fixed fee buy back option for Atalanta as part of the sale. Inter have convinced themselves that the player would be a great addition but know that it would mean that they would need to compensate noth clubs for next season's loan and agree a fee for Atalanta to sell. The representative of the player is close to Inter and may well be able to negotiate the inclusion of Inter players in the transaction. The player has also attracted the interest of Milan who had him on the books for a couple of years, Fiorentina and Napoli - but Napoli have difficulties right now and that may put the player off.
Isnik Alimi (CM) released
Andrea Colpani (CM) will go on loan to Monza
Marco D'Alessandro (RM/RW) sold to SPAL
Modou Badjie (AM/CM) released
Dejan Kulusevski (RW/CM/AM) has agreed the move to Juventus and loan back to Palma.
Lorenzo Peli (RW) has gone on loan to Reggina
Tiziano Tulissi (RW/LW/AM) loan to Modena
Ebrima Colley (LW) Genoa and Lecce have enquired.

Players of Interest:

Tomas Tavares (RB) Benfica are reluctant to sell but Atalanta, Spurs and Shakhtar Donetsk have asked after him.
Mitchell Dijks (LB) option if Gosens departs
Mattia Caldara (CB) joined Atalanta on a loan to buy back option
Lucas Verissimo (CB) Santos CB that Atalanta, Chelsea, Inter, Shakhtar Donetsk and Sampdoria have enquired after
Malang Sarr (CB/LB) has held talks with Real Betis, Chelsea, and Bayer Leverkusen about a move and Borussia Mönchengladbach, Barcelona, Arsenal, Fiorentina and Atalanta have all declared an interest. The player was very keen on joining RB Leipzig who held discussions and had him as an option to replace Dayot Upamecano but they can now be discounted. He is one of the economically better options identified by Barcelona who want talks with his agent and his agent wants talks with Leicester. The player wants guarantees of playing time and right now it is unclear if he can step up as a CB to play at a higher level, as Nice have used him more as a LB more often than not.
Marcos Senesi (CB) Atalanta, Everton, Leeds and Sevilla have all enquired after MS but Feyenoord are not looking to sell.
Simone Muratore (CM/DM) has joined from Juventus.
Mario Pasalic (CM) has joined Atalanta from Chelsea
Ianis Hagi (AM) Roma, Brighton, Crystal Palace and Atalanta have an interest in IH but none have declared an interest with his club.
Aleksey Miranchuk (AM) Fiorentina and Milan have shown an interest but Atalanta are in talks with Locomotiv Moscow. Manchester United looked at him last summer but eventually opted for Bruno Fernandes.
Pedro De La Vega (RW) would help Lanus financially to sell but parents want him to move to Spain.
Adolfo Gaich (S) young Argentine striker looking to move to had Inter, Gent, Atalanta and West Brom with a declared interest but he opted to move to CSKA Moscow.
Michy Batshuayi (S) Chelsea had no interest in letting him go in January when clubs were pushing but Chelsea will want a sale this summer. Crystal Palace may offer an option - Marseille would do but they have FFP problems and other issues to deal with first. Fenerbahce and Atalanta are looking to a loan to buy or a very cheap buy. Leeds, Aston Villa or Newcastle may provide a solution and all have made general enquiries regarding availability. His agent is working hard to define the options.
Emmanuel Dennis (F/RW) would need to pay well over the odds to be assured of a WP for the Premier League but Bruge has placed a significant €40M price tag on the player that Newcastle, Brighton and Watford see as far too much. The player has also been watched by Lille, Monaco, Sheffield United, Everton, Sampdoria and Borussia Dortmund - but it is Atalanta who are pushing (but I think a move unlikely).}

Thanks as always, Ed - amazing stuff.

Ed002 is anyone interested in sarri.

{Ed002's Note - Right now he has an option that won'tbe of interest to him - and other than that I am not aware of any approaches.}

17 Aug 2020 11:55:39
Hi eds,

A couple weeks ago you said I should ask you in a week or so regarding Atalanta's transfer plans. Any update available please?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Try another week please.}

Ed any info on dybala,

{Ed002's Note - Paulo Dybala (AM/F) is available to sell or trade unless as an issue cannot be overcome. The player is open to a new contract and was getting on well with Sarri, but wanted a clause i his new contract that no club would agree to. Available at €100M or could be traded. He is a complete flake.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2020 13:43:36
What do you mean by a flake, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - That should be perfectly clear.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2020 19:54:42
I've a hunch, but I might well be a dummy then. Thanks anyway :)

Can Dybala play RF?
