Ed now that barca have signed a RB are they going to get veratti or last i know they tried but psg said no. and what's the news with neymar? any update in your free time would be appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Three clubs remain interested in Verratti if he becomes available - right now he is not but Barcelona, Inter and Chelsea would push for a deal if something were to change. Interest is there in Neymar from PSG but it is unlikely that he will be sold this summer. If he were to become available it is likely Chelsea would renew their interest and that Real Madrid and, potentially, Manchester United could look to him.}

ed i know you don't like to talk release clauses and you did mention clauses work within a certain legal framework aka, the iberian teams when they need to buy players from another team in the region.

does this mean that for neymar to go to psg, they would have to give him the money to buy himself out, so he can join them as a free agent or something to that cause? i only say that as i understood that's something that happened with herrera to man utd.

obviously i could be talking complete bollocks, and it may not matter if the recent news is that he will stay with barca.

{Ed002's Note - They cannot give him the money to buy himself out of the contract. If they did it would pretty much double the cost as the money would be unearned income taxed at the highest rate of 45%.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2017 09:20:12
ah how silly of me ofcourse it would be unearned income.

Hi Eds
I've seen reports of Mahrez to Barca, is there much truth to this or is it just story making?

Also how close is the Veratti deal and are there any other interested clubs that are likely to be able to rival Barca interest?

{Ed002's Note - There has been no offer for RM. Chelsea are also keen on MV and I have no way to measure "close".}

Eds, can I ask who Barcelona will be looking to sign this summer? Surely there will be big changes, especially if Messi goes (or does it look like he will stay now?).

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona has looked at a large number of players but much will depend on sales and what EV wants.}

Hi Eds. You told me to ask here whether Barca are looking to sell one of the MSN? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - There is a difference between looking to sell and considering offers. They would be open to listening to offers.}

Hey Eds,

Could you please shed some light on Barcelona's midfield. targets, and what would that mean for the futures of S Roberto, Rafinha, and A Gomes?

{Ed002's Note - Gomes may well be sold - the others are expected to stay but much depends on who else moves. Coutinho remains of interest. They would like Verratti but that won't be an option. Thiago Alcántara remains of interest and, depending on who the manager is, you may see a surprise signing. Gelson Martins is looking less likely.}

If you don't mind me asking, Ed002, why won't Verratti be an option?

{Ed002's Note - Give me a break. I am not going to start being chased from page to page again nor explaining Barcelona's finances.}

Hey Ed002,

You mentioned back on Nov 30th that Barcelona would allow Lionel Messi to leave. Are any clubs seriously interested in the player and, if so, could they conceivably afford his fee and wages plus all the extras like agent fees, bonusses, image rights etc?

Thanks in advance and keep up the great work!

{Ed002's Note - There would be interest should he not have signed a new contract by the summer window and some clubs can ceratinly afford him. Barcelona has put a new contract on the table and a new manager will be arriving in the summer - I expect that he will sign it and Barcelona will have to look elsewhere to raise transfer funds.}

Thanks again Ed! My guess would be possibly Luis Suarez leaving if they need to balance the books!

News coming out today regarding Luis Enrique will be leaving the club this summer, looks like the same thing happened with Enrique that happened to Guardiola

Just want to ask the Eds, with news coming out, who is on their shortlist to replace Enrique, I'm guessing it's still Koeman, Sampaoli and Valverde

Also is their a likehood of a rebuild within Barcelona in players and the infrastructure (board members), could one of the MSM be sacrifice?

{Ed002's Note - Read the posts - this was dealt with weeks ago.}

Hi Ed002,

I saw you said that Barca still retain an interest in Grimaldo of Benfica on the Liverpool page. As he plays as a left back, is either Alba, Mathieu or Digne moving or am I jumping to conclusions here?


{Ed002's Note - Mathieu is seen as a centre back and may be one to leave regardless. Barcelona will need to balance the books in the summer.}

26 Feb 2017 11:05:14
Has there been any interest in Arda Turan in regards to a summer transfer?

{Ed002's Note - There has been some interest from China but Barcelona no longer want to sell and will make someone else available instead.}

Hey Eds,Happy Valentine's Day. I have 2 questions:

1. Does this talk of Messi agreeing new contract mean danger of breaking up MSN has passed?
Or will he still be available for the right price?

2. What's the status on Luise Enrique's future and possible replacements?

Thanks a lot.

{Ed002's Note - 1. At this time Messi has not signed a new contract. There has been a continued effort to gauge what interest in him exists at this time. 2. There is no decision yet on what will happen with Luis Enrique and his contract renewal but Barcelona, like other clubs in a similar position, have hedged their bets by coming up with a list of potentil replacements. There is no secret that Ronald Koeman is on the list but not at the head of the list. That would be Jorge Sampaoli with Ernesto Valverde not far behind. Juan Carlos Unzué is well thought of. Several, including Francisco Jemez and Klipperty will have now dropped of the bottom of the list I would think, but they were discussed.}

Thanks for the reply Ed. Can't help but feel these type of questions will only increase after last night's debacle.

Hi Ed, checked the search function so don't kill me for asking, but just wondering, despite Neymar signing his new deal recently, there it still speculation over his future. Surely he won't be leaving Barcelona anytime soon or do you know different? thanks as always in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona are not open to selling Neymar at this time but Messi will be allowed to leave.}

Wondering if anything has changed in regards to Ivan Racitic at Barcelona


{Ed002's Note - Barcelona are aware of interest from Juventus in Ivan Rakitic, but are not planning on selling.}

Hi ed

Anything changed in regards to Rakitic

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona are aware of interest from Juventus and Manchester City in Ivan Rakitic, but are not planning on selling, and certainly not without a replacement. They are likely to change head coach in the summer and I suspect Rakitic will bide his time until then.}

Is there any interest in Gerard Pique? If so would you expect anything to happen in January?

Eds are Barcelona interested in any RB's? or are they planning on using sergi roberto in that role as the media suggests.

{Ed001's Note - yes they are looking to sign a right back.}

16 Jul 2016 12:13:47
Ed, can you explain why Barcelona may get a significant boost in income.

{Ed002's Note - By selling players.}

Could you specify which players?

{Ed002's Note - I am not writing lengthy lists - all of this has been covered before.}

Hello Ed002,

Quite a few press reports coming out with conflicting news on Neymar. Some say he is going to a new improved deal with Barcelona yet his agent said that there are 3 clubs willing to trigger his clause (although I ignore the clause stuff, too complicated!).

Yet yesterday there was a report saying Manchester United are making big push for Neymar and an agent is working on it in Brazil on behalf of the club.

I wonder if you could update us on it.

Hello Eds, had to make a new account to post a question on here for some reason.

Just wondering if there is any information you can provide on a player(sorry for name dropping) called Alen Halilović.

Is much expected of him? Is he a target for anyone?


{Ed002's Note - It is a prime case of a young player moving to a big club too soon and his career taking a major knock. Barcelona are looking to sell him to Valencia but FFP in respect of their wage bill means they have to move someone on first.}
