Hi ed,

A friend directing me to rumours chelsea are interested in Adebayor. Seems unlikely and a pretty pointless move, any news?

Cheers

{Ed002's Note - Sounds like very old news.}

Ed 002

Are you hearing anything about potential deals for target number 1 being Benteke and then target 2 being Kane?

Wa advised by a long time Villa employee that They are looking to sale and he wants to leave. also Chelsea have been asking questions of Kane and whilst Spurs are determined to keep Kane should Spurs fail to progress next season then there is a real possibility that they will sale.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has no interest in either.}

Hi Ed, I have seen us being linked with several different strikers over the last month and wanted to see if you could give us any update as to who the top targets for that position will be over the summer as Drogba will definitely not be playing next season and it looks as if Remy will also be leaving.

{Ed002's Note - Some of this will change by the summer and there are major dependencies on (a) players leaving, and (b) how much money the club can raised through sales. However, there is known to be (or have recently been) some level of interest in the following players fairly recently:

GK: Kalinic, Ruddy, Green
RB: Darmain (won't happen if Ivanovic signs an extension), Manea (he will go on loan when he jopins in the summer)
CB: Varane, Balanta (unlikely), Marquinhos won't happen as he has signed a new contract.
DM: Leander Dendoncker (effectively a Romeu replacement)
M: Pogba (will be difficult), Koke (will be difficult), Youri Tielemans (would go on loan), Sinkgraven (perhaps in 2017 as he has moved to Ajax from Heerenveen for his development), Khedira (very unlikely), Gerson (looking for partial ownership deal initially), Gomes (price remains an issue), Jose Mauri (probable but then a loan)
AM/W/F: Icardi (preferable but looking a little unlikely), Dybala (possible option if a deal for Icardi can't be done), Malcom (will be a battle to get him but certainly possible), Lee (won't happen), Kishna (unlikely), Bakkali (I suspect Chelsea has stepped back from their previous interest), Talisca (perhaps 2016), Bellarabi (most unlikely), Pedro (unlikely), Kenedy (unlikely), Douglas Costa (likely but there is interest from elsewhere), Anderson (there is interest from elsewhere and Lazio don't want to sell)

Hi
Have we any interest in Morgan sneiderlan(prob spelt wrong). He appears a good fit, established premier player and at 25 young enough to stay for a while.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

We've been linked with Valencia's Andre Gomes apparently. A versatile midfielder with very good technique and interesting physical tools.
Could he be an alternative to Koke and Pogba, Ed? Any answer would be greatly appreciated :)

{Ed002's Note - Fernandez and others have watched him a couple of times but the asking price would need to halve to make any move viable.}

Ed 002 You mentioned that Oscar maybe sacrificed. Would that be as part of an attempt to sign Pogba?
Thanks

Ed002 . any interest in Felipe Anderson from Lazio?

{Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid have approached Lazio about taking Filipe Anderson as a replacement for Arda Turan. Manchester City have a declared interest whilst many clubs including Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have had him watched recently. Lazio have offered him a new contract which he may well agree to.}

Hey ed, are we interested in atleticos centre back gimenez? I'd have thought he'd be a cheaper alternative to Marquinhos. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Dean Leacock of Crawley Town is also cheaper than Marquinhos.}

I know it's a long shot but is there any interest in Sneijder from anyone?

He's a great no.10, vision, passing and a rocket of a shot. He has a 1 in 3 goal record for Galatasaray too albeit a poor league.

If we were to sell Oscar he could be a great replacement. Vital experience and mourinho loves him too. Wouldn't be that dear either i'd imagine.

{Ed002's Note - Southampton made an enquiry about Sneijder in December but didn't follow it up. Juventus discussed him with Galatasaray who had no interest in selling in January. Their possible willingness to sell in the summer may be driven by a need to reduce wages rather than any transfer fee as he is still seen as an asset by the club.}

Hi Ed,

Was just wondering which of our players hold interest from other clubs, and if you could possibly shed light on the strength of these pursuits/likelihood of these moves?

Thanks a lot, appreciative of your insight as always

{Ed002's Note - Ivanovic is of interest to PSG and possibly a club from Spain. Luis is of interest to Atletico if he were available. Uli Dávila may well make his loan from Chelsea to Malaga permanent. Romeu is of interest to Stuttgart and Piazon to Frabnkfurt, Moses to Stoke and others. Kakuta and Marin will leave. Drogba will not be part of the squad next season. Remy is of interest to Crystal Palace. Oscar may be sacrificed. That is all I can think of right now.}

ED002, quick question for your weatlh of knowledge.

You've stated Luis may be off at the end of the season along with Chelsea being interested in Koke at At. Madrid. Could the two be connected?

I read an article recently, far removed from Twitter, stating Luis could be offered as part of a deal.

Is this a possibility / do you know anything of it?

Do we have any interest in max meyer of schalke?

{Ed002's Note - Max Meyer of Schalke has attracted a lot of attention, including being watched by Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Arsenal, but a move to England seems unlikely until he has a walk-in opportunity at first team level - and I am not so sure that would be possible at this time. He does however fit the bill of a young attacking midfield player which prompted previous bids from Chelsea (who would send him on loan for one season before integrating him in to the squad) and Fiorentina. Schalke 04 do not want to sell the player and made that clear to Chelsea and Fiorentina. Unless someone were to pay well over the odds, then a transfer this summer seems unlikely.}

These Messi rumours are circulating again, any update on where the club stands with a bid in the summer? Apparently Chelsea could sign with their FFP up to date. Is it looking like he could possibly sign or is it just paper talk?

Thanks

{Ed002's Note - It would not be an FFP issue in any one year for a number of clubs but it would be an issue for any club looking to do any other business over forthcoming years. And the amounts of money involved are well beyond significant. As I have explained before, although Barcelona have not been hawking Messi around, my expectation is that Messi will be made available and Barcelona will start looking to rebuild around Neymar from January 2016 when they can start bring players in again. And I expect that Barcelona will make Messi available from the summer - regardless of who the manager is at that time. Whether or not there would be any takers is another matter, and Barcelona are well aware of that and are looking at the same of others to raise funds (e.g. Pedro). A number of questions were asked of representatives of UEFA in December regarding the transfer of the financially very high-end players and the impact on FFP. It is clear that exceptions would need to be put in place as the alternative could be lawsuits from players regarding restrictions on trade. In the past Messi has turned down a transfer to one side who had agreed to meet Barcelona's then €250M price tag, and Barcelona and a commercial partner resisted an approach by a commercial organisation on behalf of an English side with an offer to buy, or at least part fund, the player. I am aware that in Spain there has been speculation about an offer being made during the summer 2014 transfer window, but it is "largely" incorrect. This all started in 2012 when in mid December Anzhi made an offer to Barcelona that matched the €250M euro release clause that existed in his contract, and put up what I am told was a "very" significant personal package. However, Messi was not interested in a move to Russia and Barcelona did not want to sell - so Messi, in early February 2013, extended his contract with Barcelona. In the early summer of 2013 efforts were being made by Adidas to broker a deal that would get Messi away from Nike and to one of their three high-profile clubs. Very quickly Real Madrid were ruled out and with Pep Guardiola moving to Bayern Munich that pretty much saw the end of any chance of a move there (given the strained relationship) at the time. This left Chelsea and I can confirm that discussions were held about making a firm bid - at this point we are in late 2013 and early 2014 and Messi was in a verbal spat with Barcelona about getting a further extension - which the club were against. Ultimately, the player was (at least in his eyes) available during the Spring of 2014 and at that point Chelsea and Adidas made his management representatives and Barcelona aware of what they would be willing to do to make a transfer happen. Since then he has again extended his contract with Barcelona. I understand that again they see three possible destinations for the player but I am not going to get involved in any further speculation at this time. Right now, I would think a summer move anywhere is unlikely.}
