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.}

{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.

{Ed002's Note - I suspect you are right.}

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.}

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.}

Ed, can you explain why Barcelona may get a significant boost in income.

{Ed002's Note - By selling players.}

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.}

Can the Eds shed some light into the situation at barcelona?

any truth into the Javi Mascherano and Dani Alves rumours?

who have they got lined up to fill in those starter positions.

also has anyone made any offers for the likes of Neymar and Suarez?


{Ed002's Note - Both are available. PSG and other previously interested parties are keeping clear of Dani Alves nowadays - although he will be available in the summer and there are efforts being made to get Juventus to make a bid. Mascherano could be available but price will be an issue. There are no offers for the other.}

are barcelona looking for a RB now that alves has decided to leave?

and with them being short in defense are they looking for a CB?

{Ed002's Note - Yes - and it has all been done to death.}

Eds, Was wondering if you knew anything about the situation with Aleix Vidal?

He hasn't played often since being registered (and when he does play he starting a full back rather than winger but I guess it is Barca) and is now omitted from the squad entirely, Reports are suggesting Enrique wants to get rid of him.

Do you know if this is true? And if he were to be available who would look at the player?

{Ed002's Note - There is no "situation" with Vidal. He could not play before January due to the transfer embargo. Since then he has played in quite a few games until a recent injury.}

Hey Ed,
You've mentioned that Barcelona may need to sell one of their bigger name players in order to finance other matters. My question is would they be interested in selling Suarez and if so are there any clubs who have expressed an interest in his services? As always thanks for the time and hope the rodeo circuit is keeping you honest!

{Ed002's Note - Suarez is not the first choice but he is possibly an option for Manchester City.}

25 Mar 2016 12:36:02
Appreciate it Ed! I assume it's safe to say that clubs are still wary of the potential for the life ban if he were to bite another player.

{Ed002's Note - I think it very unlikely that he will return to England.}

I've noticed on the Liverpool page when a player like ter Stegen gets mentioned, you say he might wait out for the changes happening in a few months to re assess where he stands.
Is there any chance you should shed some light on what's going to happen?

{Ed002's Note - It is not something I wish to deal with here YR. Thanks.}

I am aware that its silly season and the eds probably can't wait for this window to end.

if anyone with some info can answer these queries i would greatly appreciate it. if not i understand.

1) what's all this neymar talk to madrid or man utd? any legs to it?

2) messi did say in some recent article that he does not envision himself playing anywhere else other than barca, does this play a role into neymar thinking he wants to be the go to guy in another team?

3) Sandro, Munir, and Sergi roberto have any teams stepped up interest or made any bids for these players?

your time is appreciated, even if it means you read this and delete it.

{Ed002's Note - (1) As I have explained before, Barcelona wish to start to rebuild their side around Neymar and need to raise cash to do that. There are a four issues that could adversely influence what will happen with that plan going forward - and that could see him sold. If circumstances are such that he is to be available at some point, then the known interest of Chelsea, PSG and Manchester United will no doubt be tested. It would not be out of the question for Manchester City to also think about putting a package together. But any move in the short to medium term is very unlikely. (2) No. (c) Barcelona's Sando Ramirez is surplus to requirements and may be sold in January. Marseille, Spurs and Roma have a declared interest although with Marseille seemingly having struck a deal with another target they are likely out of the market for Sandro. Interest in Munir from the EPL has drifted away for now. Roberto would be available at the right price but EPL sides are not looking for a January move. There was interest from Inter but they have dug this enormous financial hole over a transfer so nothing will happen immediately.}

Hey Ed. A question regarding Sergio Roberto, now the Barcelona can now sign players, is he likely to go in order to raise some fundage? Not a bad player. Would any EPL teams be interested, could see him at Sphurs or Southampton, both teams like to bring young players on and give them s chance.
