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.}

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

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.

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 .}

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.}

12 Jun 2020 08:50:12
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

07 Apr 2020 17:35:27
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.}

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

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

Dear Ed's,

Can you shed some light over why Bales move to China has fallen through?


{Ed002's Note - The Chinese are happy to offer very, very high wages but do not want to pay a transfer fee.}

Makes sense given how much they would’ve been paying him! Thanks for the response Ed

Hi Ed002,
There are reports coming out that Bale’s proposed move to China has fallen through.
Does this effect their pursuit of Pogba in any way and secondly is Madrid having second thoughts on Zidane?
Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - Real MAdrid need to raise funds by selling players - Bale makes a big hole in the wages but right now the deal is not good for Madrid. James will be gone shortly and they still want Pogba.}

Any chance you could share a little knowledge on the Kubo transfer to Madrid. I know barca tried and am i right in thinking, that transfer caused their ban?

Just wondered how madrid ended up successful where barca failed.

Also, is he as good as they say? Looks an incredible talent from the little I've seen. Seems quite down to earth also, which is good in this day and age with all the social media bull.

Thanks in advance

{Ed002's Note - Kubo was instrumental with regards to the bann. Many clubs looked to sign him - including again Barleona - but Real Madrid won out a while back. He will be down to earth given he is a Japanese kiddie - but as you sal one of the emerging talents from the Far East. Take a look at Lee from Valencia if you like Far Eastern kiddies - small but tasty.}

Hi Ed02

Which position will Hazard play at Madrid. I noticed you mentioned he won't play left forward. Also, do you know who Madrid's primary target for left forward is?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Jul 2019 10:38:19
They want to use him as a more versatile AM player. Nothing has changed in terms of LW players - and it won't be top of the priorities.}

12 Jul 2019 10:21:27
Hi Ed, who is interested in Dani Ceballos? I think I've read on another page that Spurs are, but there's been lots of talk about Arsenal too. Now been left out of the Real squad for their pre-season tour.

{Ed002's Note - Both sides are interested.}

Eds, how much are Real Madrid looking for to offload Gareth Bale? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - The club are open to listening to offers but the player is saying he does not want to leave. I would think if they could pick up €60M or so they would be more than happy to let him go.}

Hi Ed, with Bale left out of the squad once again and ZZ's comments after, can you tell us who is interested in Bale's signature?

13 May 2019 15:55:29
Interesting. Thank you Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Bale's salary is going to block any transfer even if the drop their valuation to say €35M unless he accepts a move to somewhere like China.}

Morning ED,

Are you able to give any indications on Real Madrid's summer transfer plans/ targets?

Im expecting them to invest heavily and with Zidane now back do they have clear targets?

Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - It is something like this:

Real Madrid would like a LB, A CB, possibly two, two CM, one AM, one RW, one LW, a Striker and a versatile Forward to move their rebuild on. They do not want to make a change to the goalkeepers unless pressed in to it.

Kepa Arrizabalaga (G) don't be surprised by a significant offer if a G is required
David De Gea (G) don't be surprised by a significant offer if a G is required but interest also from elsewhere

Junior Firpo (LB) preferred option
Nicolas Tagliafico (LB) looking less likely

Eder Militao (CB) expensive but done
William Saliba (CB) one for the future but a great deal of interest from elsewhere - looking unlikely
Mario Hermoso (CB) - Real Madrid have an option to take him back at a fixed fee seeing him as cheap cover. They were going to take him in January to see the season out and then decide what to do with him in the longer term - but the player fears the lack of game time at Real Madrid and will likely reject the opportunity.
Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) only if Varane leaves

Declan Rice (DM) has been watched but a move remains unlikely, certainly this summer

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (CM) lost out on FdJ and a less grief option to Pogba.
Miralem Pjanic (CM) - after losing out on FdJ and Saul, RM are looking to Pjanic or possibly Rabiot or SMS to replace Kroos
Paul Pogba (CM)
Adrien Rabiot (CM) - issues with his "agent"; if they can be overcome then something can happen

Joao Felix (AM) - may be too expensive given other needs
Bruno Fernandes (AM) - if nothing can be done with JF
Nicolo Zaniolo (AM) - money may not stretch, lots of interest from elsewhere and player wants to stay in Rome - unlikely
Nabil Fekir (AM) watched again - interest gone
Paulo Dybala (AM/F) RM not convinced that the transition to Spain will be an easy one for him, but he remains an option
Pablo Sarabia (AM/W) - Real Madrid has an option and the player turned down the offer to join Chelsea mid season but both Chelsea and PSG will look to a summer move whilst Sevilla will look to a new contract
Christian Eriksen (AM) unlikely

Kylian Mbappe (RW/F) - seen as the Ronaldo replacement

Eden Hazard (LW/RWAM//F)
Sadio Mane (LW/F) Zidane was interested in SM before he moved to Liverpool and his performances this season mean that they could look again - but at this time I am not aware of any approach to Liverpool, but I cannot say if there has been an approach to his agents - would be a fall back position
Julian Brandt (LW/AM) fall back position
Neymar (LW) not going to happen

Luka Jovic (F) complicated but someone is trying to address that
Mauro Icardi (S) RM are considering their options for the striker postion, and the potential grief certain players can bring


Thibault Courtois (G) situation needs resolving
Keylor Navas (G) situation needs resolving

Dani Carvajal (RB) Odriozola will be first pick and the club are looking to promote from within (Sergio Lopez)
Marcelo (LB)
Theo Hernandez (LB)

Jesus Vallejo (CB)
Nacho Fernandez (CB)
Sergio Ramos (CB) maybe will take a couple of years playing elsewhere and then a final year back at Sevilla - perhaps not this summer
Raphael Varane (CB)

Casemiro (DM) will likely stay

Toni Kroos (CM) available but expensive
Luka Modric (CM) time has come

Isco (AM) up in the air still

Gareth Bale (W) is available to be sold or used in a part exchange deal but nobody is interested at this time - seen as one of the main reasons that the rebuild will take longer than planned as he wants to stay
Marco Asensio (AM/LW) interest from Inter offered as part of a deal with an English side but the player has said he does not want to leave

Karim Benzema (S) signed a new contract but is available

24 Apr 2019 13:32:38
Hey Ed. from liverpool page, I think you stated that Salah wanted to move to Madrid, and you have not mentioned him in your list, so is it a one sided affair with Salah trying to get to Madrid.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed - they would be more interested if he and his agent dropped their demands over money and another matter.}

I'm guessing by recent trends and demands he wants team to be built around him and make big bucks.

Ed002, two things:

1) Why won't Neymar to RM happen?
2) Have RM looked at Jose Maria Gimenez?

{Ed002's Note - (1) Because PSG don't want to sell him this summer. (2) They look at lots of players.}

Thanks, Ed002.

03 May 2019 21:16:09
That a big rebuild. Would they like that all done in one window ed or over a couple?
Even tho bale wants to stay would they not take a hit on him and lower his price?

{Ed002's Note - It will take time but they also know they are one of a number of sides looking to rebuild. The trouble with Bale is not just the asking price.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 May 2019 07:08:55
Why have they left it till now ed to buy a whole squad nearly?
Most teams try replace a couple players every year, just feels like Madrid have left it very late.

{Ed002's Note - There are a number of sides doing the same thing and Madrid had to stablise with a manager.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 May 2019 08:44:09
Thanks ed002 for the summary.

Is there any interest in Raphael Varane if so which clubs if your happy to share that information.


{Ed002's Note - Raphael Varane (CB) was of prior interest of Mr Mourinho when at Manchester United and even if that interest were to return a discussion has already been held with another side - plus Madrid will try and tempt him to stay, although he wants out. I suspect he could easily be priced out of a move by RM looking to block the transfer. Juventus also had an enquiry rejected.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2019 00:26:04
Marca reports that an agreement has been reached between chelsea and madrid for hazard.

Im aware its not a signed agreement but looks like 100mill it is. for a player on his last year that's a brilliant deal.
