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?

Cheers

{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.}

Thanks for the prompt reply Ed002, anyone interested in him right now?

Apparently Barcelona now convinced Messi will stay! I'd have thought they'd have taken this chance to sell him and the rest of the old guard and refresh the entire team.

Kind of surprised to see that Inter Milan have the financial muscle to compete with the likes of City, Juve and PSG, but then again, I'm not exactly clued up on the financial side of football.

{Ed002's Note - Bayern and PSG if the deal suits them.}

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.}

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.}

Think it might have something to do with Lucho's tactics, it involves a lot of off-the-ball running of the midfield players whereas in the past, Iniesta saw a lot more of the ball and could influence games like that. That coupled along with Iniesta's aging legs would contribute to a diminished return. Also think that Lucho hasn't exactly improved the team and it has become stagnant, with players looking both unmotivated and unwilling to put their lives on the line to get the win. However, I've only really watched Barca against PSG and Juventus this season, but it really seems like Lucho has taken the team backwards by weakening the midfield, not improving the defence, and failing to get the best out of one of the deadliest attacks (even Messi looks uninspired!).
