Victor Osimhen. Playing well in Serie A, I suspect he will stay at Napoli for at least another season after this one but was wondering if any clubs are showing interest and see him as a potential option in the future maybe?

{Ed002's Note - Victor Osimhen (S) Napoli made it clear to Chelsea who enquired just before the summer transfer window closed that even €100M would not buy the player. Chelsea and Manchester City maintain an interest and Real Madrid could look to him as an option to Haaland. Bayern Munich and PSG have both sent scouts and both will be looking to add strikers next summer.}

Plenty of interest I see. The price doesn't surprise me, last time I read he cost Napoli a pretty penny when he moved.

I was hoping my team, Liverpool, would be interested but I would deem that price as too costly, unless one of the front three were to make funds available.

On that note are there any other players across Europe that Liverpool would be looking at (primarily attacking position)?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has shown no interest in him. I have explained about a number of attacking players Liverpool has shown an interest in (on the Liverpool page). But unless Liverpoool move players on and raise funds they will not be signing starters.}

I was wondering if any of the eds could give some insight into what made ronaldo want leave juve. It seemed to escalate quickly?
Was it lack of trophies, not bringing high category players in, or wage and contract problems?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Ronaldo (F) was to leave in 2022 but if Juventus were happy to cash in this summer and get his wages off the bill, Inter Miami had an offer on the table for him. His agent offered him to PSG (but they have met their alternate objective of Messi), Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid. The fee would always be small but the wages very, very high - and that scared off Manchester City.}

Thanks ed
Seems like lots of club struggling with high wage committments from before C.V. Do you think that this will help drive the wages back down?

{Ed002's Note - There are different rules in different countries - a number of clubs are in a mess with wages - Everton, Barcelona, ......}

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Aug 2021 18:49:25
Hi ed002. Are PSG looking at Ronaldo still? I don't think I'm ready to see him in a city shirt.

{Ed002's Note - Pale blue will suit him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2021 22:12:31
Pale blue and white stripes Ed like on an away kit right?!

Hi Eds

Rumours of Ronaldo pushing for a move to Man City. Any truth in that that you know of?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - His agent was in England yesterday and spoke with two clubs about him - and he has spoken with other clubs.}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2021 22:58:32
Ed002 do you think he will move this window? I assume his wages will be a big hit for any club? Maybe city and Utd in the English league?

{Ed002's Note - There is a chance he will.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2021 17:03:52
Really don't want him to go city ed tell me psg or United are going to make an offer or city won't pay the money please! haha.

22 Aug 2021 17:20:13
Hi Eds.

Seen the news Ronaldo has asked to not play for Juventus today. Is there any clubs looking to purchase him this transfer window?

{Ed002's Note - This has been dealt with - try searching.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2021 22:49:05
Hi eds,
Possible update on Inter Milan's transfer plans going forward?

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I will answer specific questions but nothing vague like this.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2021 13:37:47
Okay ed.

How about potential replacements for Skriniar, Bastoni, and Barella?

{Ed002's Note - That is easy, they are not looking for replacements for these players any more as they are not moving.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2021 14:15:29
Cheers ed.

Anyone tell me about moriba, is he if he signs, a first team player, attacking, defending, ?

Evening Ed's. Is there any truth in the news breaking that Inter are heading towards liquidation and therefore needing to sell players?

{Ed002's Note - Inter must generate €140M through player sales before they can sell more players to bring in replacements. This, for example, could see hakimi and Lukaku or Martinez sold, Satriano promoted and and an experienced Free Agent such as Pelle added. There are significant tax breaks in Italy which means the wages are far less of an issue. They will continue trying to trade players as well - they offered Hakimi to Chelsea for Kante and Emerson but Chelsea were not interested and Hakimi went to Paris. Lukaku will head to Chelsea. Bastoni and Barella are the two assets they see growth in value of that they have decided they won't sell. I assume it is Twitter suggesting liquidation I suspect they are teasing you.}

Hi Ed’s, what’s the situation with lautaro of inter? Seems a top player but then linked with arsenal.

{Ed002's Note - Lautaro Martinez (S) Inter don't want to sell and long-term admirers Barcelona and Manchester City are looking elsewhere although Barcelona would like to add him in 2022, but significant sales would still be required and they have added Aguero and Depay. Real Madrid are trying to convince the club otherwise and will offer an assortment of players they no longer want in exchange. Atletico Madrid are interested if he becomes available but money would be an issue without a major sale. There is support for him from an ex-Chelsea player who is a potential Director of Football at the club but he would be a little down the list of targets Chelsea has. I am not aware of any formal approach from Arsenal to Inter but they do want a striker and will have used a third party to understand if there is an opportunity for them. But it is difficult to see how they could fund a move which would see any negotiations start around €100M. The player would also want Champions League football.}

Hey Ed
What's the plan for Ronaldo and Juventus this summer?

{Ed002's Note - {Ed002's Note - Ronaldo (F) will leave in 2022 in all probability but if Juventus decide to cash in this summer and get his wages off the bill, then PSG and Inter Miami will have offers on the table for him. His agent will also offer him to Manchester United. The fee would be small but the wages high.}

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Jul 2021 23:42:34
Would man united try bringing him back though?

{Ed002's Note - I would doubt it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2021 15:11:57
Hi ed002,

Is there any interest in Barella? Seems an excellent player and was wondering if Inter might cash in to bring in some funds.

Many thanks for your time.

{Ed002's Note - Yes there has been interest but he won't be moving.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2021 11:30:29
Hi Ed002, is there any interest in Sergej Milinkovic Savic of Lazio?

No doubt an excellent player who I would guess would be extremely expensive. Transfermarket has his value at circa £65mil which is massive, although I'm guessing with C.V. that figure would be lesser.

I know in the past he's been of interest to Man City and Man United but was wondering if their interest still stood and what other clubs are in a position to potentially sign him.

Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (CM) No intention of selling and it would take a huge offer of perhaps €80M-€100M to make them reconsider. At that price the interested parties, Juventus and PSG, would want to include players in any deal. Will stay.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2021 23:09:36
Thanks for the info as always.

Ed002 who is interested in maehle from atlanta thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody. He has only just joined them.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2021 19:48:44
Good day Ed, just wondering if you have any info on Cristian Romero? Thanks in advance and keep up the good work.

{Ed002's Note - Cristian Romero (CB) is only on loan and has another year to go before Atalanta are expected to buy him - Atlanta cannot sell him until that happens.}

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2021 10:26:42
ED002, Can you please provide an update on Hakimi from Inter.

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed really.
Achraf Hakimi (RB) Inter spoke with Chelsea and wanted to offer an exchange for Kante, but started negotiating by asking for both Kante and Emerson. Nothing came of it but he would be an eventual Azpilicueta replacement and Chelsea remain keen on trying to find an acceptable deal. As they have financial issues they would like a straight circa €60M cash or €80M with payments spread out for him which interested sides, including Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Leicester, see as high. Arsenal enquired after him but are not an attractive option and the cost would be an issue. PSG see the price as more than they wish to pay and losing him to AFCON is always a consideration so that will end their interest. The player is happy where he is for now but Inter need to generate cash through sales before they can look to add players - and he can help with resolving their issues.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2021 10:32:54
Hi Ed, with all the reports circulating about Hakimi to PSG, has much changed in the last few weeks? Understandable if you don't want to do play by play updates, many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2021 00:10:54
Hi Ed002, hope you’re well. If you had the time, could you please tell me an update for the ins and outs for AC Milan? Thanks mate.

{Ed002's Note - I don't have the time to do that I am afraid.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jun 2021 15:59:03
Hi, Long time lurker, just never got to making an account since I have not been invested in football for some time to be frank.

I remembered this website when I heard news of the European Super League and recalled that a certain Ed had been talking about it as far back as 2017 (I think) and had even suggested that 2022 would be a breakaway date, which is eerily close. Great work!

What do you make of Mourinho at Roma Ed? Is it the right move for him at the time? Do you reckon his stint at Roma will go better than the ones he had at United and Spurs? Thank you

{Ed002's Note - Mr Mourinho was not going to get the move he wanted and Roma offer a very good solution. Money is a little tight there and they have to comply with FFP but the new owner will be supportive. I expect he will do well but there is an aging squad with 10 players over 30.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jun 2021 05:18:21
Thanks Ed!

What was the move that he wanted though? Did he have his eyes on the Inter job?

{Ed002's Note - He had a desire to return to Inter.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jun 2021 12:08:18
Thanks!

Sorry for being greedy but I have one last question, could you please tell me about Romas transfer targets for the summer? Thank you!

{Ed002's Note - It will be changing rather.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jun 2021 10:33:54
Hi Ed002, any interest in Hysaj of Napoli on a free?

{Ed002's Note - LAzio are interested.}

Hi,

Just wanted to find out if anything has changed with Bennacer's situation in Milan since last season.

With his injury and the impressive performances by Tonali and Kessie, is a move possible this summer?

I also heard rumours that Milan were thinking of removing his release clause.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - The situation is that he is liked by a number of clubs such as Manchester City, but Milan will want a deal including Gabriel Jesus. PSG may look to a deal including Leandro Paredes. I don't understand what you mean about removing his "release clause".}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 May 2021 21:33:44
Hi there Ed's. Now that Gattuso has been named as Fiorentina's new manager, might I trouble you for some info on possible transfer dealings for them this summer? Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing will have changed overnight. The likes of Pol Lirola (RB), Nikola Milenkovic (CB), Erick Pulgar (CM) and Dusan Vlahovic (S) may leave.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2021 19:03:59
Thanks Ed.

25 May 2021 11:58:34
Hello Ed is there anything new on Hazard Future? Could he move for Chelsea or to PSG and the same question for Donnarumma is there a chance he Moves to Paris or London? Merci.

{Ed002's Note - Eden Hazard (LW/RW) Real Madrid have problems one way or another with all of their wingers and there is no guarantee any will be at the club next season. He will be another that Real Madrid listen to offers for. There is someone senior at Chelsea advocating his return to the club which I understand would suit the player - but the club are already making efforts to sign another.
Gianluigi Donnarumma (G) was first choice in 2020 and will be first choice in 2021 if Chelsea push with their plan to sell Kepa Arrizabalaga and use Mendy as a second choice. There are three issues with renewing in Milan: a contract clause, agent fees and wages (and that problem has now worsened). PSG, Inter and Juventus remain keen to take him - Inter can likely be discounted but Juventus might offer a decent option although the Milanese supporters will be very unhappy and the player will be aware of that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2021 11:57:57
Hi Ed.
I was wondering if Milan getting Mike Maignan changes Donnarumma's situation? To me Maignan seems like a keeper that's too good to be benched!

{Ed002's Note - Gianluigi Donnarumma (G) was first choice in 2020 and will be first choice in 2021 if Chelsea push with their plan to sell Kepa Arrizabalaga and use Mendy as a second choice.

Ed002, I see that Matic has been linked with joining his old pal Jose at AS Roma. Any truth in this or just the same old typical rags linking a player with a former manager. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Nemanja Matic (DM) Jose Mourinho would like to take him to Rome with him but he will not be first choice - although the first choice is not looking to be attainable - and there may be some reliance on the sale of Amadou Diawara and Manchester United, who gave him a new contract, being willing to sell him at a reasonable price. If he leaves Manchester United would look to replace him as they don't plan for the careers of players like James Garner.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2021 14:49:59
Hi ed,

Any clubs showing an interest in Theo Hernandez of AC Milan at the moment?

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There has been interest but he will not be sold.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2021 06:19:25
Can I ask what is expected to happen with Donarumma this summer? Will he sign a new contract or join another club this summer?

{Ed002's Note - I expect the two remaining issues will be resolved and he will extend.}
