Hi Ed002

Just wondering do you have latest news on Real Madrid in terms in incoming and outgoings?

I feel like they have done the majority of their transfer business already to be honest for this summer.

Hi Ed002

Just trying again for the update (as per above)
No worries if you can’t or don’t have the time yet


{Ed002's Note - Potential Departures and where interest has been shown:
Andriy Lunin (G) Borussia Dortmund have him as their first choice - player wanted to kickstart his career away from Madrid but Madrid want him to stay. West Ham offered a loan option that was rejected. Marseille provided a wildcard.
Marcelo (LB) Out of contract. Fluminense are keen.
Eder Militao (CB) Lots of interest but has signed a contract extension.
Victor Chust (CB) Moved to Cadiz.
Casemiro (DM) PSG may be interested still. Juventus are keen. Will stay.
Luka Modric (CM) Out of contract. There is at least one offer from the Middle East. Signed a one year extension.
Toni Kroos (CM) Offered to Newcastle.
Eduardo Camavinga (CM/DM) wants to be starting every game at Real Madrid but the coach will not tolerate a prima donna. The chances will come more often next season with Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro all aging and coming to the end of their Real Madrid careers. Ancelotti wants the player to settle and form the basis of a new midfield with Aurelien Tchouameni.
Dani Ceballos (CM) Real Madrid will look to move the player on again. Real Betis and Inter Milan offer options. The player may look to try and stay.
Federico Valverde (CM) Real Madrid are not looking to sell the player, previously of interest to Liverpool and Manchester United, as they expect him to settle in as a regular as Modric and Kroos are coming to the end of their RM careers. Real Madrid are aware Bayern Munich see him as an option to replace Tolisso - but it would take a huge offer for that to happen. Manchester City have sent scouts to look at him as they look to add to their Central Midfield options. Liverpool interest will have shifted to more financially viable targets and Manchester United have clear alternate targets in mind.
Reinier Jesus (AM) It has not worked out well in two years at Real Madid and now his loan at Dortmund. Real Madrid need to make a decision to let him have Isco's spot, cut their losses and look to sell or perhaps try one more loan, and Roma offer such a chance. He will be sold if possible, to raise funds. Benfica had been interested but they have other plans now.
Brahim Diaz (AM) Milan have an option to buy in 2023. Real Madrid will want to sell this summer and will offer Milan a discount. Milan will hold firm on the loan for next season.
Isco (AM/LW) Free Agent but there is less interest from Inter, Manchester City and Juventus but interest remains with Sevilla - and staying in Spain suits the player. Milan and Bayern Munich offered options at the right price but both appear to have stepped back. Roma offer rejected. The player wants Sevilla but he would need to take a huge wage cut. Spurs and Newcastle will possibly offer an option. Real Betis would be the likely favourites to sign him.
Gareth Bale (LW/RW/F) Moved to Los Angeles FC.
Marco Asensio (RW/LW) Goals have largely dried up and his representative is working with a third-party agent to find a club willing to pay something like €40M for the player. The third party has said that the player ideally wants a club in the Champions League but the discussions he has had have been with Leicester City, Newcastle and Leeds so far, and admits knocking on the door of other PL clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Spurs. Player is almost certainly not open to moving to a side not in the Champions League. Milan and Juventus were approached but showed no interest, although Milan have since met directly with his representative to discuss price having stepped back from another target - although Ziyech is also in the mix for them. I suspect he might be seen as an option by Liverpool being able to play on either wing or in an AM role - and Liverpool have approached his representative. PSG provide a potential option. Real Madrid will be open to using him in a part exchange deal of some type but finding a buyer at the asking price might be difficult but will also perhaps try and do something with Dortmund. A new contract seems unlikely, but Madrid will not want him to run down his contract so I suspect a reduced price around the €25M mark will get him moved on..
Take Kubo (RW) Real Valladolid and Real Sociedad offer options.
Rodrygo (RW/F) With Vinicius Junior, probably the safest of the Real Madrid wingers. Will extend his contract before the start of the season and not for sale.
Eden Hazard (LW/RW) Real Madrid have problems one way or another with most of their wingers. Hazard will be another that Real Madrid will listen to offers for and he has already been offered to several Premier League sides. West Ham indicated at the right price they would be interested but the player would not be interested in such a move. It is difficult to talk of the timings of transfers but Hazard is, like most of the wingers at Real Madrid, potentially available for a transfer and is being actively offered around. Whilst there is some support from someone senior at Chelsea, others are not keen to pay the asking price for a 30 year old so they are not an option. I think a move to England unlikely unless the fee drops considerably. PSG, Milan and Borussia Dortmund may offer solutions at the right price. May well be offered to Lille as part of another transfer. Has been offered to Newcastle as well - and they are open to further discussions. Player will look to stay, creating an impasse.
Vinicius Junior (LW) New contract.
Mariano Diaz (S) Sevilla offer an option. Leeds another. Fenerbahce might win out.
Karim Benzema (S) Time has come to move on – probably next summer - the US probably beckons.
Luka Jovic (S) Moved to Fiorentina.

Players of interest to Real Madrid:
Real Madrid are after a LB, CB, W (depending on departures maybe 2) and S.
David Ospina (G) Free agent wanted by Real Madid. Won’t happen.
Gabriel Slonina (G) Chelsea want the kiddie from Chicago Fire and will loan him back for two years after being advised by a very special friend of the club who has an astonishing reputation. Real Madrid offer an option.
Youcef Atal (RB) Nice would be reluctant to sell but the player is well liked by clubs including Real Madrid. Seems unlikely.
Miguel Gutierrez (LB) Outstanding youngster who despite some health issues will press for the first team role.
Fran Garcia (LB) Rayo Vallecano would sell their 50% rights back to Real Madrid for a small fee. Could provide the back up to Mendy Real Madrid will need when Marcelo leaves - but where does that leave Gutierrez.
Jose Gaya (LWB) No longer the kiddie that Chelsea and Barcelona have repeatedly tried to take from Valencia but finances may make the club think if a very good offer arrives. An option for Real Madrid if Mendy were to leave but unlikely to accept being a back up to Mendy.
Angelino (LB/LM) Continues to want to be moving on and has made it clear that he wants a move to Real Madrid, but they are ideally looking for cover. RBL will let him move on if their valuation is met. Real Madrid seems an unlikely destination and the player will not want to be cover.
Sergio Reguilon (LB) Not happy wants to return to Madrid. Interest from Madrid seems very unlikely. Loan to Sevilla is possible.
Matthijs de Ligt (CB) Moving elsewhere.
Merih Demiral (CB) Moving elsewhere.
Jules Kounde (CB) Moving elsewhere.
Caglar Soyuncu (CB) Leicester will fight to keep him with Real Madrid and Inter declaring an interest.
Pau Torres (CB) Will move elsewhere.
Milan Skriniar (CB) Won’t happen.
Alessio Romagnoli (CB) Moved elsewhere.
Marquinhos (CB/RB/DM) Won’t happen.
Matthias Ginter (CB) Moved elsewhere.
Alessandro Bastoni (CB) Will stay another season at Inter.
Gleison Bremer (CB) This will drag out but he will be moving elsewhere.
Antonio Rudiger (CB) Signed from Chelsea as a Free Agent.
Wesley Fofana (CB) Has been recommended to Newcastle. Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea have all sent scouts to watch him. Unlikely.
Weverton (CB) Real Madrid want to take the youngster in to the B team.
Benoit Badiashile (CB) Real Madrid and Chelsea remain interested, but he is not first choice for either and the asking price is very high. Unlikely.
Nico Schlotterbeck (CB) Moved elsewhere.
Melayro Bogarde (CB/DM) Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid are all interested in the Dutch youngster who plays for Hoffenheim. Raw and one for the future.
Niklas Sule (CB) Moved elsewhere.
Mohamed Camara (DM) Will move elsewhere.
Kalvin Phillips (DM) Moved elsewhere.
Aurelien Tchouameni (DM/CM) Joined Real Madrid from Monaco.
Marc Roca (DM) Moved elsewhere.
Mikel Merino (DM) A potential Casemiro replacement but not for this summer.
Fabian Ruiz (CM/DM/AM) is still seen by Real Madrid as a replacement for Kroos and/or Modric but is not first choice - although they could still turn to him and are keeping their interest known to Napoli. There have been discussions with his agent involving Manchester City and Bayern Munich. Napoli have also met and spoken with Barcelona who see him as a possible replacement for Pjanic - but the not at the not unrealistic €60M asking price (not the €100M Aurelio De Laurentiis is demanding) as money is still an issue for them. I am not aware of any approach to his agent or Napoli by Liverpool. His agent thinks that PSG and Manchester United could also look to him. Do not lose sight of Inter or Real Madrid. Something could happen for Madrid.
Ngolo Kante (DM/CM) Inter wanted a package deal for Kante, Emerson and Giroud last summer but wanted include a player in the deal (Chelsea had no interest in either player offered) and if Inter do not need to put too much cash up front - another solution would need to be found. PSG may still provide and option but the new manager would need to be consulted. The interest of Real Madrid remains whilst they decide over the future of Camavinga. Last summer I suggested he will stay - 2022 I am not so sure.
Youri Tielemans (CM) will not sign a new contract so will be available in the summer at a reduced fee. His agent confirms that there is interest from Arsenal and Real Madrid who are looking for a Luka Modric replacement and that he has been approached by a third-party representing Newcastle and is aware that other clubs, including Bayern Munich and Liverpool have scouted the player. Wildcard might be Manchester United.
Enzo Fernandez (CM) Moved elsewhere.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (CM) Interest has gone.
Nicolo Barella (CM) Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid have had approaches turned away. Don't be surprised of a significant offer from PSG or Spurs. It will be rejected and the player is expected to sign a new contract and stay.
Vitinha (CM/AM) Moved elsewhere.
Paul Pogba (CM) Moved elsewhere.
Bukayo Saka (LM/LW/RW) Real Madrid, Atletico and Juventus have declared an interest at the behest of his "agent" (and I use that word in the broadest terms) who is looking for a substantial fee himself. Arsenal want to keep him. If he were to come up for sale then Liverpool might well be interested - he is young, home grown, versatile. Not one for this summer.
Pablo Torre (AM) Barcelona will win out over Real Madrid for the well like Santander player.
Kingsley Coman (LW/RW) New contract signed in January. BM will now sell another winger.
Fabio Carvalho (AM) moved elsewhere.
Christopher Nkunku (AM/LW/RW) New contract.
Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld (LW/F) Interest has gone.
Leroy Sane (LW) Offered by his agent to Real Madrid and Chelsea.
Yeremy Pino (RW/LW/AM) His agent spoke with Manchester City and Chelsea last summer about the player but he agreed a new contract at Villareal with a significant €80M buy-out clause and a contract to 2027. Barcelona could still maintain interest in a player they looked to sign as a kiddie but the price is an issue. Real Madrid have him on their lengthy list of potential replacesments for Eden Hazard.
Jeremy Doku (W) Bayern Munich turned their attention to him but have stepped back after being told an asking price by his agent that reflected Rennes paying over the odds for him and the club will look to keeping him another year - as Rennes do not consider him for sale. Liverpool have had a long-term interest in the player. Real Madrid consider him an option to replace departing wingers. It was suggested to Arsenal that he would be a good replacement if they can off-load Pepe. Perhaps one for the summer but lack of goals might be a concern for Liverpool.
Dominik Szoboszlai (LM/CM/LW) RBL have no desire to sell.
Kylian Mbappe (RW/S/F) Not yet.
Mo Salah (RW) New contract.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (S) even with Everton in need of adding a striker to replace Tosun and Rodon, the chances of DCL being sold unless a very significant offer arises are small. However, Arsenal are still looking for a striker and interest remains. The Real Madrid coach has said he is one of the rare English players who he thinks would take to football on the continent - so there may be interest. Other clubs looking for a striker such as Spurs have other preferred options. Manchester United may also provide an option.
Matias Arezo (S) Uruguayan youngster wanted by Real Madrid for their B side. Huge interest in him from Boca Juniors, Ajax, Sevilla and RBL.
Rafael Leao (W/F) I cannot see the player moving to Newcastle who have enquired but PSG have sent scouts and he might be an option for Real Madrid as they clear the decks - and they would look to including Marco Asensio and Luka Jovic in a deal which will cost around €120M. Manchester City see him as an attacking addition if Sterling leaves. Milan want him to stay and sign a new contract, but fear a significant offer from Manchester City, Chelsea, Madrid or PSG. Chelsea having lost out on their preferred option may look to a significant offer but have to keep in mind other work they must do. Compensation fees have been agreed with Sporting and sell on fees are due to Lille.
Jonathan David (S/AM) Will be moving elsewhere.
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.
Erling Braut Haaland (S) No
Alexander Isak (S) Michael Zorc wanted to take him back from Real Sociedad regardless of any different wishes of the coach at Borussia Dortmund and the interest from BD may continue still. Barcelona see him as a possible addition but are not well placed to add him this summer. Manchester City interest has gone whilst Chelsea considered him as a Tammy Abraham replacement last summer but considered the asking price high. Manchester United have watched the player and will need a Cavani replacement in the summer and will have a new coach - but seem unlikely. Arsenal see him as an option to their preferred Lacazette replacements but the price is a concern and again they will not be attractive. Spurs remain keen. Juventus also offer a solution for the player. Do not be surprised if Milan look to a deal. Newcastle are keen but a less likely destination. Real Madrid are very keen. Real Sociedad have financial woes and may take the opportunity to profit now they have removed the buy back clause to keep him this season. They will seek the full €70M termination fee in cash from sides other than Borussia Dortmund who will have a discount - but will likely not get takers at that price.

hey Ed, since it looks like pochetino will soon no longer be the coach of PSG, i wanted to ask if Real could try to get him as coach this summer as there has been interest from both sides for quite some time. I don't want to be disrespectful to Ancelotti or anyone else, so it's no problem if you don't want to reply.

Hey Ed,
I was wondering if Madrid had any plans to make personnel changes in their midfield over the summer? They have a number of guys getting up there in age (Modric, Kroos, and Casemiro) in addition to a number of guys with potential for a larger role (Valverde and Camavinga). Thanks so much for your wisdom and hope all is well!

Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are all at the tail end of their careers at Real Madrid. Valverde has been of interest to others but will stay. Camavinga has been a bit of a problem and needs to understand better his role. They have an interest in adding a DM and have been looking at Marc Roca, Mikel Merino, Mohamed Camara, Kalvin Phillips and Ryan Gravenberch. In terms of a versatile CM player preference is for Aurelien Tchouameni although other options such as Paul Pogba, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Fabian Ruiz and Ngolo Kante.}

Plenty of rumours that Real Madrid might be confident of securing some/all of the following in the Summer:

M’bappe (free)
(Haaland) his preferred location

Pogba - free
T’choumeni - Real apparently been putting the ground work in
Rudiger- free
Tielemans - his preferred destination after refusing contract extension

If true, will be some team Real can put out next season!!

Real Madrid very keen to sign Mbappe we know, Camavinga added during the summer, any other players Real are seriously looking at as part of their long term vision?

{Ed002's Note - Yes they have a large number players they are considering including the likes of Haaland. There will be plenty of changes over the next year.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

12 Aug 2021 07:47:12
Hi Ed,

Do you think Madrid now have the necessary finances to pull off an Mbappe deal this summer given their sales to date?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, they achieved all of the required savings and have players who will leave over the next couple of weeks.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2021 11:23:33
With Varane and Ramos gone, would pau torres be one of Madrid's options or are they not looking to bring anyone else in?

{Ed002's Note - Pau Torres is top of their lengthy list of options.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

01 Aug 2021 11:33:23
Thanks ed and does interest still remain from united now they have varane?

{Ed002's Note - No, they wanted Pau Torres but it was not possible. Hence Varane.}

28 Jul 2021 13:56:34

Seeing a post on another Page. How does Real Madrid's attempts to sign Martinez from Inter effect their plans for signing Mbappe and Haaland?
3 similiar players. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - They are interested in Mbappe this year but not Haaland unless Mbappe signs a new contract in Paris.}

Hi ed. any chance for a quick update on madrid? thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There are large numbers of potential comings and goings - I can answer specific questions if you have any. Calderon is using a long-term debt to gain political points but the debt has been offset by the Adidas deal (about 18 months ago) which they offset existing debt and borrowed against - so it is not an issue. They were tasks last summer with offsetting €190M in sales and wages which they have effectively done. They are now in goodish shape and will continue to sell and have already been negotiating for four (ish) major purchases this summer with a couple of options. So whilst it is conceptually correct over a longer-term period, they have the income to offset it already - plus they did very well last summer in transactions and will continue to do so. There is a plan going forward. The need to behave responsibly and they are one of the better sides setting themselves up for what might need to be a reshaped future.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

04 Jul 2021 10:31:15
May i know which player they are negotiating as major purchase as of right now??

{Ed002's Note - That is not really how it works.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2021 13:15:23
Ok then ed 2 questions
1.Are they still looking at cb options or it depends on varane and militao leaving?
2.Are the primary cm options is still camavinga and giovanni reyna?

{Ed002's Note - (1) Yes, Ramos has gone and Varane is probably going to go. Real Madrid know they need to add two CBs - they have one already but do not want to be adding three, so Nacho will extend and Militao will likely stay. (2) Giovanni Reyna and Camavinga are not CM players. They have other options in CM.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2021 13:15:33
Is mbappe more likely to happen this year or next year ed? and if it happen does PSG have any replacement in mind?

{Ed002's Note - Kylian Mbappe (RW/S/F) is the primary target for Real Madrid in 2021 - they will face a challenge from Juventus who will be open to include players in the deal. Manchester City have certainly considered Mbappe but I think it unlikely they will commit to the €200M transfer fee, huge signing on fee and huge wages. Liverpool would also be in a similar position and the money would be a major issue for them. PSG don't want to sell him and at the very least will expect him to agree a one or two year extension to his existing contract that runs until 2022, that will keep his price buoyant - and that seems the most likely outcome but he may want a commitment that he can join Real Madrid next summer. Without a commitment he says he will not sign a new contract. But Ideally PSG want him to agree a new long term deal and are willing to offer him €750k per week for a minimum two year extension.

PSG have a number of options to add if he leaves but are not progressing them right now. Messi is being offered but the numbers are huge and Barceloa want to keep him.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2021 19:25:18
Hi Ed002,
Who are the Centre Backs Madrid plan to recruit and who would be leaving?

{Ed002's Note - They have a number of targets to replace Sergio Ramos and Eder Militao or Raphael Varane.}

Hi Eds. With Zidane's position looking worse by the day, who would you think are the contenders to take the seat next? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect nothing will happen until the end of the season and then they will agree to part company. If it were now then Massimiliano Allegri would be the most likely - but in the summer perhaps Guti will be favoured over Raul - or perhaps the other way around. It would be a year too soon for Joachim Low.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

21 Jan 2021 21:50:38
Cheers Ed002. Do you think Guti or Raul would be good appointments given the size of expectation?

{Ed002's Note - Raul is "the peoples choice" - Guti may have the edge. Both are Real Madrid through and through which is seen as a good thing but it does not always work in reality.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jan 2021 22:48:02
Ed002, possible to ask who Real are willing to sell at the minute?

{Ed002's Note - Marcelo (LB) no takers but has been offered around
Sergio Ramos (CB) PSG want a January agreement to take him as a Free Agent in the summer. Real Madrid want to extend his contract.
Eder Militao (CB) Bayern Munich accept that they will need to add two CBs to replace Boateng and Alaba and Militao provides an option they are very keen on. Real Madrid is looking to sell Militao and others to raise funds for the summer but will probably not be open to a loan in January unless there is an obligation to buy above their current €50M asking price. There will be a discussion between the clubs to see if a deal could be done to perhaps let Bayern Munich have Militao for €50M in January if Alaba were to move the other way in January rather than wait until the summer - Alaba's representative would likely favour this as he has failed to persuade another club to make an offer for Alaba with RM preferred over the interest of Juventus by the player. The other club who has spoken with Real Madrid about Militao is Spurs, with Mr Mourinho very keen on striking a deal after it has become clear that they probably cannot sign their first-choice target. Spurs have had a discussion with Real Madrid about another player and the Gareth Bale situation and would like clarity on each of these matters. I do not know of any approach by Liverpool.
Casemiro (DM) player wants to stay and will if RM cannot get the desired DM.
Luka Modric (M) Out of contract but talks to extend will happen.
Dani Ceballos (CM)
Isco (AM/LW) wants out but there is less interest from Manchester City and Juventus but interest remains with Inter and Sevilla - and staying in Spain suits the player. PSG, Milan and Bayern Munich offer options at the right price. Player wants Sevilla.
Lucas Vazquez (RW) Spurs were talking with Real Madrid as the price is seen as affordable but player wishes to stay and has rejected a move to Qatar - a new deal is unlikely and Milan might be interested.
Lucas Vazquez (RW) out of contract in the summer. Prior interest of Liverpool has gone. Spurs are keen.
Gareth Bale (RW/F) There will be a discussion to be had about the future with options heading back to Madrid, being sold to Spurs (what Madrid want) and another loan.
Mariano Diaz (S) It is true that Real Madrid have the representatives of Mariano Diaz offering him around on ideally a loan to buy option as they continue to clear the decks ready for a summer spending spree. Diaz is an out and out striker who had a very good season at Lyon three years ago but is simply not good enough for Real Madrid where the goals return has been well below average. He has rejected loans to several clubs already inclding West Brom and Brighton - West Ham may offer solution but commiting to an obligation to buy may not be wise
Luca Jovic (S) has the option to return to Eintract Frankfurt on loan and that will likely suit all parties and will soon probably be confirmed. He was being offered to Napoli as part of the deal for Ruiz but had a broken heel to recover from first and then Real Madrid stopped looking to major signings this past summer having "delayed" four signings to next summer. Roma (having lost out on their two preferred choices), Inter and Milan will likely fight it out and offer Real Madrid some complicated deal invloving an initial loan. Benfica were interested but opted for Luca Waldschmidt. Milan will want a loan to buy from January - but will want an option rather than an obligation to buy. I don't see West Ham in the loop.}

Ed002, I've had a little look and can't see anything up to date regarding Real Madrid future plans. Any chance of a quick update?
Many thanks

{Ed002's Note - Dayot Upamecano (CB) will be looked at again and has been looked at by looked at by Bayern Munich. Barcelona have DU on a long list of CBs - but they are fearful of making another Umtiti or Mina type error. Staying where he is until 2021 when he is first choice for Real Madrid.
Benoit Badiashile (CB) maybe an alternative to DU in 2021.
David Alaba (CB/LB) - Juventus are in talks over a pre-contract. Manchester City could provide an option but wages will be an issue. Real Madrid and Barcelona would also struggle with the wages.
Eduardo Camavinga (DM/CM) if the player continues his good performances Rennes will look for a summer 2021 auction. Serious approaches for Camavinga have been made by Real Madrid, PSG, Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs - but Arsenal can be discounted as they moved to by Partey and Spurs will likely not be of interest. Interest has also been shown by Borussia Dortmund (who were quoted €100M), Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Genk - but I would discount all of these now. There has been a recent discussion with Chelsea but he won't be a priority for them unless Kante were to depart and other options were not available. A move to England for the kiddie is less likely than a move to Spain. PSG and Real Madrid were considering taking a chance on him in the summer of 2020 but would not pay the revised COVID-19 asking price of €75M. Julien Stephan says they want to keep him and has explained that an early move could stall his career through lack of game time. 2021 - he is a primary target for Real Madrid.
Giovanni Reyna (AM) Real Madrid have declared an interest. Will try and take him in 2021.
Kylian Mbappe (RW/S/F) is the primary target for Real Madrid in 2021 - they will face a challenge from Juventus who will be open to include players in the deal. PSG don't want to sell him and at the very least will expect him to extend a one or two year extension to his existing contract that runs until 2022, that will keep his price buayant. But Ideally PSG want him to agree a new long term deal.
Jadon Sancho (RW) - option to Mbappe - and if Bale leaves for good and interest goes in Mane and Salah and a player is offered up - then it is possible.
Erling Braut Haaland (S) It would take a lot of money plus a player or two in exchange to make it work - a priority for Real Madrid in 2021 even if Mbappe does not sign - and if the money stretches. There will also be interest from Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Juventus - and I expect Manchester City to push although Dortmund will resist a sale in the summer but may commit to a 2022 sale to Real Madrid, which is the longer term plan.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Nov 2020 09:39:49
Regarding jadon sancho ed, wut do you mean by interest in mane and salah??

{Ed002's Note - It is pretty clear, Jadon Sancho will be an option to Mbappe if Real Madid to not follow up on any interest in Mane or Salah - and they won't be interested in Salah, and I rather doubt in Mane.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2020 22:26:43
Ed002 I see you mention that Barcelona are trying to get Van der Beek. Previously you had mentioned that he was a primary target of Real Madrid but they were concerned about getting caught up in a bidding war - have they backed away?

{Ed002's Note - They have money issues.}

30 Aug 2020 12:28:16
Ed002 could you tell us more about the money issues?

Is it about cash flow?
Falling foul of FFP on wages and “old” transfer fees still in the books?

Thanks a lot in advance

{Ed002's Note - The club are looking at covering their pandemic losses through player sales. They have to date made back about €65M already this summer - their target is €190M.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2020 12:38:47
Are the 190 Millions the hole the pandemic punched into the books to date?
Or expected until the end?

Are they needed to be Blei to go through with the original plans or to stay afloat?

Costs for original plans must have somehow, right?

{Ed002's Note - I don't really understand much of your post. The loss was calculated for the season just finished. It is not a difficult concept to understand. They have shifted three purchases to next summer.}

Thanks Ed

It’s not a lack of understanding the general issue, just curiosity about the details, as I am not privy to them.

The middle part might make sense if you take “BLEI” out an replace it with “able”.
Darn autocorrect 😂

Thanks for the information so far, greatly appreciated and amazing how much of a loss the pandemic is creating everywhere.
We are losing one years worth of revenue already, possibly more to come.

Have a nice sunday

{Ed002's Note - Yes, revenue will continue to be lost.}

Hey Ed, hope all is well! I was wondering if anyone had shown interest in Sergio Reguilon. I assume that with Marcelo and Mendy in place at LB and the clubs financial situation that they would like to sell if presented with a reasonable offer.

{Ed002's Note - Sergio Reguilon (LWB) will be assessed on return from Sevilla and keep in mind that Real Madrid need to raise significant sums through sales. As such, RM have yet to decide whether to let SR have another season on loan at Sevilla and the re-integrate him when Mendy's contract is up or whether to integrate him now and lose perhaps €25M of much needed revenue. There is also a push to integrate a couple of fine youngsters in to the Real Madrid first team squad. A change to Kia Joorabchian as his agent means the player is considering his options - but Kia's team Arsenal won't be interested unless they were to lose Kieran Tierney. Spurs are looking to sign a LB and have asked to be kept informed of progress but money is pretty tight and they are less attractive to other sides right now. PSG have the LB issue to resolve and have also been asked to be kept informed but much will surround what happens with Bernat. Chelsea have Reguilon on their list of LB options to replace Emerson and cannot sign their first choice - but they have a concern that he is so one footed it may affect his game in England as it will make him less versatile in a faster game. Everton are apparently reported to have made an offer but clubs don't usually work that way and simply throw offers out there - Real Madrid know nothing of it, but they may have made an enquiry with Kia in case Lucas Digny were to move on.

Thanks for the insight Ed! Only person worth listening to regarding player movement.

Ed002 What do you e left to happen with Bale this summer, any chance of a move back to the prem ?

{Ed002's Note - I very much doubt a return to England this summer. Other options such as China re not going to be attractive, but RM would like him off the books. Right now he may well simply sit tight.}

Too soon for MLS ?

Hi ed is there anything new on bale ? Zidane has said Bale doesn't want to play in the final games which would make me think he is protecting himself for a possible transfer. Thanks in advance bud

{Ed002's Note - Gareth Bale (W) is available to be sold or used in a part exchange deal but nobody is interested at this time given the asking price and wages - seen as one of the main reasons that the rebuild at Real Madrid will take longer than planned as he wants to stay .}

Ed002, possible to ask what Madrid's summer plans are now? Have they been affected at all by the virus?

{Ed002's Note - All clubs have been impacted to some extent. If you have a specfic question just ask it.}

Okay, the two I have really are:
1) Do Real Madrid still plan on putting a package together for Mbappe this summer?

2) Any interest in Dani Carvajal?

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi ed002. Hope you're holding up well mate. I seen you mentioned on the United page that Madrid will break the world transfer record this summer.

Can we assume that will be for Mbappe?

{Ed002's Note - That is the intention.}

I read a rumour that Manchester United are interested in taking Luka Jovic on loan.

Hi Ed.
A friend of mine is a Real Madrid-fan and very much enjoys whenever I send him information about which clubs are interested in which players.
I was therefore wondering, if you had the time to write about Real Madrid and the players that they are interested in? I very much understand it if you have not got the time, though!

{Ed002's Note - LB, CB, CM, W/F, F

Diego Carlos (CB) preferred CB replacement for Ramos - €75M single payment required.
Milan Skriniar (CB) seen as a potential amos replacement.
Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) another potential SR replacement.
Ngolo Kante (DM/CM) will chase him if PSG make a bid and Chelsea are open to selling
Eduardo Camavinga (DM/CM) if the player continues his good performances Rennes will look for a summer auction. Serious approaches for Camavinga have been made by Real Madrid, Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs, with interest also being shown by Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, Manchester City, Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich and Genk. A move to England for the kiddie is less likely than a move to Spain because of Work Permit issues. He is a long way from first team material if he steps up in the summer.
Donny van der Beek (CM) primary target but Real Madrid are concerned that the price is being pushed up by the interest of other clubs - it will get to the point where they may stick with Fede Valverde plus perhaps Ruiz.
Fabian Ruiz (CM) is seen by Real Madrid as a replacement for Kroos and/or Modric but is not first choice and Napoli will demand a very significant fee. Barcelona also keen.
Paul Pogba (CM) split opinion about him and club will look to move away unless Manchester United are open to taking players as part of a deal. Money remains an issue unless Bale or another can be included.
Eriksen (AM) an approach by Manchester United may be viable in January – but the player wants Real Madrid and Real Madrid will look to him if space can be made available in the squad - and the preference will be for the summer (but it is something his agent is working on). Juventus also retain an interest but he is not first choice - and their first choice looks unlikely.}
Kylian Mbappe (RW/F) primary target
Mo Salah (RW) is unlikely after kicking his agent out over ridiculous demands on more than one occasion - but player still feels that this might be his best chance to move to Real Madrid - but talks have again happened with Barcelona – I think he will stay at Liverpool.
Jadon Sancho (RW) - option to Mbappe but may not wait until the summer.
Ferran Torres (RW) only 19 and fears for game time - but a very bright prospect.
Neymar (LW/RW) will likely be heading elsewhere.
Raheen Sterling (LW/RW) Real Madrid are still looking at a major revamp and are using Eden Hazard on the LW which was not their plan. They have plans to bring in a specific RW and a couple of alternatives but are likely need to hold on to Asensio who they would rather let move on once fully fit. They have a bunch of senior players they have available for horse trading, particularly Isco and Bale and will look to include them in any deal. I am not aware of any approach for Sterling at this time and it sounds rather speculative, but it is not out of the question.
Erling Haaland (F) will head elsewhere.}

Thanks a lot, Ed - my friend will surely be very, very happy that you shared your information, and so am I!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Emil. There will also the opportunity to buy at the summer fire sale.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Could we get a list of possible departures Ed002? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Dani Carvajal (RB) Odriozola will be first pick going forward and the club are looking to promote from within (Sergio Lopez)
Marcelo (LB)
Sergio Reguilón (LB) will be assessed on return from Sevilla

Jesus Vallejo (CB) will be assessed on return from Wolves
Nacho Fernandez (CB)
Sergio Ramos (CB) maybe will take a couple of years playing elsewhere and then a final year back at Sevilla
Raphael Varane (CB) would be available for a very significant offer but is expected to stay

Casemiro (DM) will likely stay

Toni Kroos (CM) available but expensive
Luka Modric (CM) time has come
Dani Ceballos (CM) want by Milan but again cost may be an issue
Brahim Diaz (CM) will perhaps go on loan

Isco (AM) up in the air still but there is serious interest from Manchester City and Juventus
James Rodriguez (AM) available with Bayern Munich pushing him out - offered to several sides with Napoli showing some interest - could be used in a part exchange or sold
Martin Odegaard (RW/AM) will stay on two year loan with an unusual clause
Lucas Vazquez (RW)
Gareth Bale (W) is available to be sold or used in a part exchange deal but nobody is interested at this time given the asking price - seen as one of the main reasons that the rebuild will take longer than planned as he wants to stay
Vinicius Jr (LW) It has not been working out well for the player in Spain and Wolves have shown an interest in him but he would only be a second string to Diego Jota - and the asking price (circa €60M - although they may accept less) is seen as high. Arsenal have been approached but with Saka emerging on the left it is the issue of Pepe on the right and Aubameyangadingdong in the centre or left that needs the most consideration - but he shares and agent with Martinelli so there may be a discussion. Chelsea have also been approached as he would provide an option to Hudson-Odoi on the left allowing Pulisic to move to his more natural right side. Others have been approached but none would be in a position to look for more than a loan and Real Madrid need players gone to continue their rebuild.
Marco Asensio (AM/LW) interest from Inter and was offered as part of a deal with an English side but the player has said he does not want to leave and that is also the position of Florentino Perez – serious knee injury so expect him to stay
Karim Benzema (S) signed a new contract but is available – being pushed toward Lyon and PSG has an interest - and he could be used in a deal for Mbappe.
Mariano Diaz (S) wanted by Milan – but money is an issue

You mention Neymar is 'likely heading elsewhere' Ed002, any chance you could tell us where please?
