Ed002, is there any chance of an update regarding icardi? I've not heard much about him lately and it was such a big story towards the end of the season! Thanks in advance for any information you can spare!

{Ed002's Note - Kean perhaps.}

I can appreciate that reply, gave me a right old tickle! Thanks ed!

How do you think Zidane will fair this year? It was difficult to tell how good he was in his first stint at Madrid. Hazard will help but that team was a mess last year and it feels as though he isn't enough. The midfield in particular seemed poor and no one has been brought in.

Hi ed, i was wondering with Juventus recent signings, is it possible that they could be implicated in FFP violations? I only ask with Ronaldo on massive wages, plus Ramsey, Can, Rabiot signing big contracts as free agents, De Ligt rumoured to be offered a large contract and a squad of top players, is this all within regulations? I recently read that UEFA have abolished the rule where any increases in wages over £7mil had to be covered by commercial contracts, however not sure if this is correct, but they do seem to be on top of the transfer market at the moment and not sure where their recent financial power has come from. Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No they are fine. Players will also be leaving as they are frebuilding.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2019 11:36:55
Has anything changed with De Ligt since your last update Ed002? Appreciate you don't want to give 'blow-by-blow' on every transfer but it'll likely be one of the biggest transfers of the summer and I'm woefully impatient.

{Ed002's Note - What do you expect to change - it is nothing to do with Manchester United. The transfer window only became active yesterday.}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2019 12:59:07
Thanks ed, you the man!

Who said anything about Manchester United? This is the Serie A page? to answer your question I expect a club to come to an agreement with MDL at some point if a transfer is to be completed, I guess I just wondered if that had happened yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2019 06:54:21
Eds could you help explain what went wrong with Juve and Allegri? Football style or player targeting disagreements?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing went wrong. It was time for a change. From the club's side they need a complete rebuild and it had not been a good run in the Champions League and it would be agood time for someone with fresh coaching ideas to take over. From Allegri's side it was time to move on, although he is taking a break first. He had always wanted more say in transfers than he had in Turin.}

Thank you for clarifying Ed!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2019 19:02:20
Ed002 hope you are well. Travels behind you for a bit i hope.
Are juve open to selling moise keane?
Ive seen him play quite a bit and i think he is a great prospect.

{Ed002's Note - Yes but he won’t be moving to Manchester United.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2019 09:16:02
That was not my reason for asking thanks anyway ed.

{Ed002's Note - OK.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2019 13:36:34
Just like The raw talent he appears to have ed. I'm surorised juve are pen to selling him but they see him every day i suppose.
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I don’t know what you mean.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2019 15:45:08
I think he looks very talented so I'm surprised juve are open to selling him. But they see him train every day and perhaps he isn't showing as much daily as i think he has and that's the reason why they will sell him.

{Ed002's Note - No, that isn't it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2019 11:25:31
Odds news breaking in italy that AC Milan have withdrawn from the Europa League. Any ideas why they would do this?

{Ed002's Note - They have been kicked out. It was expected.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2019 21:21:08
Hi ed, If you have time would you mind passing on any information on
Fiorentina's milenkovic. I know you had said Manchester United see him as an option. Just curious if that was still the case. Hope all is well. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Right now nothing is happening Tom - they don't want to sell and don't need the cash particularly.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed002

Can I ask of interest in Joachim Anderson I've never heard of him but his name has cropped up lately in regards to him possibly heading to England.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - You should have been looking on the Spurs page Dave. Joachim Andersen (CB) there are several sides interested with Atletico considering him as an option if they cannot get the player tey prefer and Inter who were looking to Andersen as a Skrinier replacement - who is now no longer needed. Milan are long term admirers and the player has always said he would like to make such a move but their problems are much worse than they were and they see the €40M asking price as very high. Sampdoria are now open to a sale with Lyon and long-term admirers Spurs still in the reckoning - and there is little doubt that England will win out over France should Spurs decide on an making an acceptable offer.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2019 17:14:39
Is AC Milan in talks for Nabil Fekir?

{Ed002's Note - Nabil Fekir (AM) watched regularly - all about balancing funds but seen as a way cheaper option to their preferred choice and Bruno Fernandes - and one where they can use a player as part of the deal. Nothing can be done until confirmed sales for June 30 have been recirded with UEFA.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2019 08:59:05
Hi Eds, can you give me some info on Rabiots next destination? Hearing he's got an agreement with Juve but they are waiting till July (their next business year) to announce it.
Is it too early yet to ask for a little run down of ins and outs too?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Adrien Rabiot (CM) has been looked at by many clubs but interest would only be in place of the baggage were resolved and the €200k per week net plus €10M signing on fee and €10M agent fee for mother can be reduced. The likes of Bayern Munich, Spurs, Arsenal and Real madrid have stepped back. Manchester United have an idea for him and Juventus has offered something which they expect to see agreed.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2019 18:17:38
Excellent, thanks for that.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2019 13:30:57
Ed002. That's ramsey and possibly raibot. If they do sign raibot will that end their interest in pogba?
Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2019 15:17:16
Hi Ed002,
Isn't that too many midfielders with Pjanic, Can, Khedira, Bentancur and the others already there and Ramsey, Rabiot joining + Pogba.

{Ed002's Note - I can think of one MF who has left and three others who are available, so no. They are, like many sides, rebuilding.}

Hi eds what is the general feeling amongst juve fans at sarris appointment.

{Ed001's Note - they didn't want him but they didn't want Allegri.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2019 08:55:29
Yep, pretty much that. Allegri's tenure was over, but I think Sarri is the best fit for what was available. Just remember the uproar when Allegri was first appointed.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2019 23:30:54
Thanks Ed remember benitez when he came to chels but I think he was good in the end.

{Ed001's Note - still not liked by the fanbase though.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2019 08:55:12
He did a good professional job. I still can't stand the bloke though.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jun 2019 19:49:06
I see totti has left roma ed1. Sad day for him and the fans I suspect.
I saw you mention the other day that you thought the Roma owner would screw the club up in some aspect. Is totti leaving down to him, and is there more to this?

{Ed001's Note - from what I can gather Totti has had enough, but as so many people hate Pallotta it is difficult to be sure they are not projecting their own feelings onto the situation.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2019 09:22:05
Hi Ed002, I was wondering if you have any info on Paulo Dybala. Is he likely to leave? Which teams are potential destinations?

{Ed002's Note - There is a very good chance that Dybala will leave this summer and he is available for sale of exchange. A deal involving Dybala and Icardi is possible and he could be one of several players who could be offered to Manchester United as part of a deal for Pogba, but that is unlikely. Two Spanish sides are concerned about the transition so that looks less likely - plus there has already been an offer from Bayern Munich.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2019 18:05:54
I hope he leaves. Don't think we will see the best of him while he's in Ronaldo's shadow. Thanks Ed002.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jun 2019 23:04:06
Hey Ed001, just wondering what you thought of Hidetoshi Nakata as a player? I grew up in South East Asia and me and a childhood friend were recently discussing how big a story his retirement was. Neither of us watched Serie A so it was difficult to know how good he actually was.

{Ed001's Note - he was excellent but his main value was commercial. When he signed for Roma they released a commemorative polo shirt and the sales of the alone made more than his transfer fee had cost them. The man was gold in that area.}

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jun 2019 08:14:38
Hey edds, can you shed any light on why the manager of Juve is taking so long? I'm assuming it's because sarri isn't plan A? If he was surely Agnelli would just pay the fee for him and have it done and dusted? Has there been a failing in going for A and he's now plan B? Or is it down to CFC not letting him go down to pr or something?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Sarri is still contracted to Chelsea, when that is resolved he will be announced as Juventus coach.}

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Jun 2019 14:52:26
OK Ed, thanks for that. Think he'll be a stepping stone for a year or two till they can accuite pep?

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jun 2019 06:54:54
Ed002, thoughts on Icardi's future?
Inter want to offload him, Real Madrid have bought Jovic, United are looking at other players, a swap with Juventus is seeming unlikely.
Is he going to Napoli?

{Ed002's Note - I don't have any interest in speculating but he is not interested in moving to Napoli and talks with another side are dormant rigt now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jun 2019 03:04:21
Thanks Ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2019 10:25:22
Hello Ed002, it looks as though Elseid Hysaj wants to leave Napoli in this window. do you know where he could end up?

{Ed002's Note - Elseid Hysaj (RB) Milan are keen but are in termoil right now, Inter are keen but he is only second choice for Conte and they see the asking price as high, Juventus see Hysaj as a potential Joao Cancelo replacement and Atletico Madrid see him as a Juanfran replacement after losing out on their original first choice.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2019 12:11:37
Interesting indeed, I would have liked to have seen him come to England. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing is finalised.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 May 2019 21:48:39
Ed002, possible to ask about Juventus and AC Milan's summer plans, now they are both changing manager?

{Ed002's Note - Juventus have plans that are extensive and are yet to appoint a new coach formally but they are planning to review targets again shortly - although I expect little to change - but there will be two additions. Milan are in a different position right now whith anew coach to be appointed but the VCs looking to flip the club, so maybe now is not the time to be discussing them.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2019 14:57:58
Hi ed 01. Hope all is well. What are your thoughts on Stefan de vrij?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I don't know if he gets injured a lot but he is injured whenever I have watched Lazio and I haven't seen Inter play this season.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2019 17:16:43
Cheers ed. I know skriniar is a class act but always think the pairing for cb's is vital. Thanks for your time.

{Ed001's Note - it is very much so. The right pairing can play well above their actual individual levels.}

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2019 17:42:06
As a utd fan been trying to think who or what type of cb would complement lindelof. I can't see past alderwield but with no champs league and the state utd are in can't see him being a realistic target.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2019 18:14:09
Tom I’m with you, Toby would be a fantastic signing. Short term, but I can’t imagine any player steadying the ship as much as he would.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 May 2019 12:53:27
with juventus announcing allegri will be leaving, who are the top candidates juventus are looking at?

and will inter try to get allegri again or has that ship sailed ed?

thanks.

{Ed002's Note - See previous answers please.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 12:40:21
Hi Ed, with Allegri leaving Juve would his move to Inter be back on?

{Ed002's Note - No, that is very unlikely now as they have tentative agreement with someone else.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 17:50:14
Thanks Ed, a hot topic isn’t it.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 12:14:56
Hi Ed, with Allegri leaving Juventus, I was wondering if you’re able to shed any light on his next destination and who Juventus have in mind as his replacement? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - He has a couple of options but it would be unreasonable to discuss them whilst they have coaches still in place. Juventus would like Didier Deschamps or Mauricio Pochettino.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2019 19:23:40
Thanks for the reply ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 May 2019 13:37:48
Hi Eds

Is there interest in Sergei Milinkovic Savic from and is he likely to move this summer?

{Ed002's Note - There is interest from Juventus, Real Madrid and Inter but he is not first pick and it is unlikely that Inter could afford the fee with other planned purchases.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 May 2019 18:25:43
Looks like he is still seen as a less grief option to Pogba. Wish United looked to him and Saúl as a midfield pairing if Pogba left. Thanks as ever for the prompt reply Ed!

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2019 12:53:30
Hi Eds, is there any interest in Cengiz Under of Roma?

{Ed002's Note - Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and Arsenal all have an interest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2019 15:54:49
Thank you Ed, he looks promising.

{Ed002's Note - He has suffered injury, form and attitude problems this season which will likely end the interest of Bayern Munich.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2019 18:16:04
Thanks for the update 002. Why are attitude problems in young footballers becoming more common these days. So much talent wasted.

{Ed002's Note - Many want too much too soon.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 May 2019 18:55:24
That’s society these days!

Agree0 Disagree0

12 May 2019 10:15:27
Hi Ed002 has something changed with Cancelo? There seems to be lots of rumours linking him away.

Would be an amazing signing for Utd.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed, Joao Cancelo (RB) could be included in a deal for Pogba as MU need a RB or Icardi.}

Agree0 Disagree0
