Hello Eds. Can I ask about Bale? Is he available if Mbappe signs? and if yes, which teams are possible for him?

Also would Real only let one of their stars go or can Bale and Benzema both leave?

Thank you :)

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid will let Bale leave this summer or next, depending on arriving players. Potential interet would be from the Manchester sides and potentially Arsenal.

Both may well leave at the same time.}

Ed, what's the current situation with Mbappe if you don't mind? Have City lodged an official bid which was reported by numerous outlets last night? Do Madrid need to sell one of Ronaldo/Bale/Benzema before being able to buy Mbappe?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any bid from MC.}

So Bale and Benzema could both leave, and Ed002, you have mentioned that the plan is to let Ronaldo leave next summer too. Is this really the case that all three could no longer be RM players come the 2018/19 season?

Who do they plan on replacing them with?

Thanks in advance

{Ed002's Note - Why do I have to explain things over and over again? Morata and Mariana have gone, Borja is back. there is interest in the likes of MBappe, Hazard, Dybala, Griezmann, Dembele.}

Apologies Ed, I do try to read as many of the posts on here as possible, Griezmann and Dybala from that list certainly slipped my mind is all!

I shall endeavour to read and remember more! Sorry for the repeat question 😕

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

Hi ed

Have MU declared any interest in Bale


{Ed002's Note - There has been no approach.}

Thanks for the answer Ed002. Crazy we could get one of them. If both are available could it be possible Arsenal do a double deal? instead of Lemar or Mahrez coming maybe get Bale? or do you think it would be too much money?

As an extra question since you probably won't like to answer it. what sort of transfer fee would Real Madrid want for Bale and Benzema now? Bale seems like he'd be too much for anyone except PSG or Man U. and Benzema is old now so they won't ask too much for him will they? Just wondering.

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - I would not complicate matters over signing both - and I really don't want to discuss the money - as you need to look beyond the tranfer fee.}

I understand about the money. I only asked because it seems INSANE to think Arsenal can afford Bale for £100m (or whatever stupid number Real Madrid would want) and Benzema is 29 now and Real wanted £60m last time. Wenger is a bit of a cheapskate you know!! :D

Thanks for the quick reply. Appreciate that.

{Ed002's Note - Circumstances are looking like Benzema will stay right now.}

That dream didn't last very long haha :(

Does that mean that Mbappe will not be going from Monaco now or is he going somewhere else? (or do I need to ask this on the Europeans page?)

{Ed002's Note - Right now they are too far apart to reach an agreement and I suspect they see the risk as too high for the money.}

WOW. All these journalists said it was happening.

Did Real not make that super bid that was reported in Spain? €180m or something? because if Monaco turned that down they are crazy. Mbappe is amazing for his age but he only had one good season!!

I will ask more about this on the Europeans page because I wanted to ask about Man City and Arsenal but I already think you will tell me he stays at Monaco.

{Ed002's Note - I would put aside any thoughts about money.}
