can any of the eds with info shed some light into the messi contract situation?

nothing from the player but the president of the club has said he's signed it and Javier tebas has said the same unless he's been lied to, and xavi spoke about it recently. just wondering what is the truth if anyone knows

{Ed002's Note - I think someone has been teasing you about Josep Maria Bartomeu saying that Messi has signed a new contract. I am certainly not aware of him making any such statement.}

Hello Ed002, what do you make of the events currently going on in Catalonia, how will it affect the football in Spain?

Will completely understand if you don't want to answer. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It won't have any impact on football in Spain.}

Hi Ed sorry to drag you over to the Barcelona page, you know how there is a FC Barcelona basketball team, is this basketball team directly related to the football team or are they two separate things? Is it a common thing for a football club to also have a basketball team?

{Ed002's Note - Yes it is related and it is common throughout Europe for Sporting Clubs to be involved in many different sports. Galatasaray has a chess department, Ajax has an amateur side, Bayern Munich has a bowling team (and play chess as well), PSG has a handball side, Real Madrid has a rugby team, etc..}

G'day Eds, do you expect Barca to sign anyone today? Any idea who?
Thanks so much.

{Ed002's Note - Spain will be carrying on today with business and Barcelona will look to bring someone in. They want Coutinho as you know.}

Hi Ed,

Now Coutinho seemingly won't be arriving today, who are Barca going for as alternatives?

Is it possible they end up with nobody?

Thanks again!

{Ed002's Note - Lemar and Di Maria are players they have shown an interest in (in addition to Coutinho).}

What's going on at Barcelona currently.

They're such a huge club, treble winners just over two seasons ago.

But, without using the term crisis, it feels like all is not right at the club.

Neymar has gone. Fine. But they're yet to sign the players they've targeted as his and Iniesta's replacement (Dybala, Dembele, Coutinho etc.) with no signs that they're any closer.

They were beaten comfortably by rivals Real Madrid last week. Messi and Iniesta haven't signed new deals. They have a relatively thin squad when compared to their great sides in recent years, no disrespect to some of their players.

But even in their 3-0 defeat to Juve on aggregate in the Champions League last season, there were signs that their European superiority was diminishing.

Do you think we're beginning to see the beginning of the end, so to speak, of this great Barcelona side, or do you believe that they will come through this still able to challenge domestically and in Europe this season?

Anything credible about the Barca / Naby Keita rumour?

I'm just wondering whether or not Barcelona are going to put another bid in for Philippe Coutinho? I don't trust what I read online or see on Sky Sports about Barca supposedly ending their interest haha!

Hi Eds.

I was wondering if Messi has signed a new deal yet? Tixi from Man City said they wouldn't sign him because he heard Messi might sign a deal. I was curious if you've heard that.

Also, have Liverpool agreed to let Coutinho join Barca or is a deal not possible?

Thank you guys :)

{Ed002's Note - (a) No he hasn't. (b) Try the Liverpool pages.}

Thanks for the reply Ed002 :)

In your opinion do you think he will stay or is there things happening that could see him leave on a free? I know you mentioned Barca were open to letting him go now.

{Ed002's Note - I really have no interest in speculation like that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Aug 2017 09:48:43
Thanks for the response.

Yeah I understand. I wasn't sure how to word it so I could get an answer. I know you don't like to do guesses.

Can I ask if you are still answering things on Arsenal's page or not? When I post there the questions don't seem to come up or get answered (which is why I mainly ask on the Euro pages now).

{Ed002's Note - Yes I have been.}

Dear Ed002,

Any truth that there is interest in Tevez from Barcelona and Boca Juniors?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know about Boca but don't hold your breath about a move to Barcelona.}

Any truth in the reports of eriksen interest?

{Ed002's Note - Spurs are aware that both Barcelona and Juventus could turn their attentions to Eriksen if they are unable to sign other targets. Spurs were expected to look to Sigurdsson as a possible replacement but this late in the transfer window they will likely look to hold on to him, still adding Barkley to the mix.}

Eds who do you think Barcelona can replace Neymar with? Very difficult to replace someone as good as him but I see he has said he wants to go.

Who are they trying to sign now?

Thanks :)

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want Dybala and Verratti, but Verratti isn't available so they want Countinho and if he is not available they will look to Dembele.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

Thanks for the reply Ed002. I see the question was asked before. Sorry about that :)

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2017 05:48:08
Just curious Ed002, why would Barca look to Dembele if both Verratti and Coutinho aren't available? If I remember correctly, you said that Verratti and Coutinho were seen as a replacement for Iniesta, so it doesn't seem to make sense that they would want a winger in Dembele to play there if their two preferred CM options aren't available.

{Ed002's Note - These are the players they have chosen.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2017 06:44:15
Thanks for the quick reply, ed002. Barca seems to be a shambles when it comes to player recruitment.

{Ed002's Note - They have some very firm targets but Dybala is going to be difficult to get.}

Agree0 Disagree0

For Ed2 please, any chance of a summary of domino transfers that could be set off by Neymar's move?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want Dybala and Verratti, but Verratti isn't available so they want Countinho and if he is not available they will look to Dembele.}

Ed002, where do things stand with Neymar at the minute?

I have seen a report on the BBC saying Barca will report PSG for their pursuit in regards to FFP. But if it is found to be in breach, are Barca then not breaking employment laws by effectively giving a player no way out?

Apologies if i have got the wrong end of the stick or convoluted the plot just interested to see how such a big money transfer could possibly develop.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona are not responsible for monitoring FFP. I have already explained that situation in some detail of one of the European pages.}

Hi eds,

I know you've said swap deals are messy and very rarely happen, but if neymar were to go to PSG would they be more open to letting Veratti go the other way? Or is he outright not for sale?


{Ed002's Note - PSG may propose that as a possibility but they will try to avoid it.}

Hey Ed002,

Any chance of that Barca transfer roundup? I've seen your updates regarding Neymar, Verrati, Coutinho etc but just wondering about any other possible ins and outs?

appreciate that you can provide an update when you can Ed.


{Ed002's Note - I am planning on doing some this week.}

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.}

appreciate the response. hope you ain't stressing out over this transfer window ;)

24 Jul 2017 10:52:49
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.

Agree0 Disagree0

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".}
