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.}

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.}

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.}

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.}

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.}

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.

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.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

21 Jan 2021 17:31:59
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.}

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.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2020 13:49:23
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.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2020 04:52:00
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.

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.}

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 .}

12 Jun 2020 00:17:27
Ed002, possible to ask what Madrid's summer plans are now? Have they been affected at all by the virus?

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

31 Dec 2019 06:59:17
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
