Hi Ed2, hope your well.
Lots of rumours of alvarez asking to leave City, is this true as I'd love him to come to Chelsea, are we interested at all?

Thank you x.

{Ed002's Note - Julian Alvarez (F) Manchester City have told Bayern Munich, PSG, Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona he is not available although the player wants more game time and could try to force a move. Manchester City will mot look to sell him.}

Good afternoon ED002, I hope you’re well and having an enjoyable summer. I was unsure where to propose this question, so I apologise if this is not the suitable place. I was just wondering if there was any chance of your podcasts returning? I used to really enjoy listening to them when they were posted, and would definitely enjoy listening in again if they were to return (even if Chelsea were to be excluded from topics due to the obvious complications that could bring) .

{Ed002's Note - perhaps. Right now I am travelling but will be back on Monday - remind me then.}

Not a problem at all ED, thank you! Anywhere exotic? Safe travels good sir!

Good morning ED, I hope that you are well and I hope your travels went smoothly! Just a friendly reminder about that potential podcast. Wishing you and everyone else the best on this miserable monday morning (weather is awful here) .

{Ed002's Note - I will try when time allows.}

Agree0 0Disagree

Ed002 any possibility of that podcast/ sharkopod if you have time? Much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - When time allows.}

16 Jul 2024 15:29:16
I appreciate it’s not going to be the quickest of things to do ED. Thank you in advance, i’ll be waiting patiently in anticipation! Thank you for everything you do - most of us appreciate you.

Goalkeepers. Are we still trying to sign a new keeper? Is Kepa leaving? Is Sanchez leaving?

Are we interested in Ajax's 18-year-old English goalkeeper Tommy Setford?

{Ed002's Note - Players will be leaving and there is interest in Setford and his brother, amongst others.]

Believable1 0Unbelievable

12 Jul 2024 20:51:56
The Athletic reporting an initial offer from Al Ittihad for Kepa has been rejected but discussions will continue.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Jul 2024 23:52:39
I like the look of Marmadashvilli and Costa! Think they both may be realistic targets! One of these and upgrade striker and I think we are good to go. Ed002 is there still interest in the both? Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - There is interest demo several clubs in both.}

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Jul 2024 17:01:59
Ed002 reports we are targeting a lw, any chance of a list or some names targets? Could we maybe go back in for nusa? Doue? Jota silva? Appreciate it and thanks for answering our questions.

{Ed002's Note - I am not providing any lists as it causes too much grief.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

11 Jul 2024 12:01:20
Thats a shame, can i ask if we are still interested in nusa and any truth we are interested in jack clarke? Looks very impressive, thanks alot.

{Ed002's Note - Nusa interest has gone and the club are not interested in Clarke.}

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Jul 2024 02:33:22
Ed002 is it true wea are looking to sigñ desire doue?

{Ed002's Note - Desire Doue (LW/RW/AM) The player is young and talented but rather moody and has decided to leave with him apparently desperate to move to PSG. Borussia Dortmund see him as a replacement for Jadon Sancho, and Manchester IUnited want him to replace Antony. Arsenal, Spurs and RBL have sent scouts with Arsenal declaring an interest. Last summer Chelsea considered him as an AM on the advice of an ex-player and they will look again. Bayer Leverkusen will look to him as a potential Florian Wirtz replacement if needs be - but that will not be until 2025. A wildcard would be PSG or perhaps Bayern Munich. Rennes will seek €75M for him which will end most interest unless the figure is halved.}

Agree0 0Disagree

Evening ed002, are we still interested in Victor Roque? Know he hasn’t played much at Barcelona but we tried hard last summer and think he/ his agent are angling for a move away? Many thanks =].

{Ed002's Note - Vitor Roque (S) PSG, Chelsea and Barcelona fought over him last summer with Barcelona winning out. Now his time at Barcelona is over with his agent telling Deco the player wants to stay but others are wanting him gone - and he will depart in the summer; something his agent now accepts. His agent does not want the player to go on loan. Will be offered in exchange for a Chelsea player, but that will be rejected. Fiorentina may offer an option. Spurs might well be approached but the player will resist. Prior interest of Milan and Arsenal has moved on whilst Manchester United will not want to pay the €45M Barcelona are looking to recover. Napoli might provide an interesting solution. His options may be down to joining Inter Milan, who will likely want a loan to buy deal of some sort, Napoli, Juventus as a Moise Keane replacement or Porto. Porto offer an interesting option of an exchange for Pepe who Barcelona see as a good replacement for departing Joao Felix. If the difference in valuation can be reconciled, then a move to Porto may suit everyone. A loan to Inter if Barcelona cannot recover the money or get a suitable player in part exchange would otherwise become viable.}

So Roque, after being scouted, and targeted by Chelsea and PSG and Barcalona, is now a target of Porto or Napoli, great work from your agent, hero to xero, best you have a conversation with your manager!
So many potential superstars end up nothings because of their agents!

Hi Ed,

Hope you're well? Are we interested in Karim Adeyemi?

{Ed002's Note - Karim Adeyemi (LW/S) Versatile forward who has not regained his form since moving to Dortmund and has been rather inconsistant. Prior interest of Atalanta fhas gone. Offered to Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool but each has preferred options. A wildcard might be Juventus as cover.}

Believable1 1Unbelievable

10 Jul 2024 13:11:50
Thank you Ed, as always we're linked with every man and his dog!

{Ed002's Note - I missed Arsenal out as well.}

08 Jul 2024 18:05:39
Ed002 are athletico in talks for gallagher? Could we try and sort a deal out for omirodion?

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has other targets.}

Believable1 1Unbelievable

08 Jul 2024 17:55:38
Ed002
Is it true that Athletico Madrid are interested in Conor Gallagher?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There is a huge amount of interest.}

No surprises there. No shortage of suiters for a quality player who's been our best cm and captain. Will be very sad to see him go.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 10:12:11
How about he signs a new contract then, he is the one that can put all this to bed.

I still believe he will walk free end of the next season.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 11:54:50
How about he receives an offer commensurate with his age, experience and status as an England international and captain.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 12:16:58
Kdrog, how do you know he hasn't had just that? are you privvy to the offer made to him?

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 12:27:59
Do you know he hasn’t?

Ed told us some time ago that the club had made him an offer. He is fully entitled to reject that offer and if he wants he can see out his contract and leave for free at the end of the season.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 12:29:14
I should have added that as virtually every player in the squad is playing better than Sterling they should all be getting more than him! hahaha.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 12:30:02
Again you don't know what has been offered to him. Maybe it's already what he is worth but he wants more.

What would your limit be.
£100k £150k £300k £400k.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 13:31:53
And how do you all know he's been offered a competitive salary?
He's made it very clear he wants to stay so it's a simple task to make him a competitive offer.
The truth is the club were planning to cash in on him and until he prospered under Poch and would still prefer that option if the price is right.
You have only to take note of blowing £19m on the Villa kid to see the strategy if indeed it can be called that.
Why you lot would trust the clubs version of events God knows.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 13:56:27
I think its pretty obvious chelsea aren't offering him a competitive salary. Hence why he is leaving and will sign for a club who offers him that competitive salary.

It's fine that him and chelsea disagree on value, I'm just dissapointed chelsea have and continue to sign players worse than him.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 14:01:06
Yet again you use phrases such as “truth” and “trust” as if you are some sort of oracle of fact.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 14:06:14
Sorry that post was sent to soon.

Ed has been referenced as saying the club have made CG an offer.

The club have made no comment and I’m not aware of the player making any comment other than him reportedly saying “he wants to stay. ”

So, it’s not a question of any supporter having to “trust the clubs version” because there is no club version.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 14:44:47
Standard, what is a competitive salary? Is it the same as Enzo, Chuka, Palmer, Lavia, Ugo or Caicedo?

I may well be wrong but I think it’s more of a problem of the new owners paying some players to much.

Personally I would only pay players a base salary with the majority being performance related.

I also believe that the club has offered CG a contract as per the Ed quote. If CG doesn’t think it’s enough he doesn’t have to sign it. I don’t want him to leave but I’m fed up with the saga and can I also add, if the club don’t value the player as much as fans or as much as he values himself it doesn’t make them wrong or bad people.

Agree2 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 14:52:26
Tom, I think Ed002 said Chelsea have made Gallagher a “reasonable “offer. However, that is beside the point, you are right there is no point arguing that I should be paid the same as someone else where each player has individual contracts negotiated by agents. Things change, the club aren’t handing the kind of wages they were a couple of years ago.

Agree2 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 15:24:52
Jimbo, you are spot on mate. I’m not sure what “reasonable or competitive” means in the terms of contract offer but my guess is not one singe poster has a clue either.

In some people’s eyes the club should just give him a package that he can get elsewhere. The problem with that method of “non negotiation” doesn’t take into account that all clubs needs are different.

Agree2 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 16:49:45
Again how much should he be paid. Should he be paid as much as palmer, sterling, enzo.
I have no idea how much they are paid neither do I know how much they have offered Connor.
In my opinion they all get paid enough so if he wants to stay as you have said why has he not signed. The only answer is he values himself more. Which brings back the original question how do you know he hasn't been offered £300k but wants £310k so what would your limit be to pay him 🤷.

Agree1 1Disagree

09 Jul 2024 22:01:53
Hey jsfinchy just ignore them mate. They love to troll.

Agree1 1Disagree

10 Jul 2024 09:34:18
The club holds the exclusive rights to make contracts offer for the players and obviously don't value cg as much as he value himself. The club has a process and it's absurd a player will demand parity with other players just because he enjoyed a sustained injury free season. In the beginning, I expected cg to be coming from the bench but lavia was never fit. cg for all the headless run around, doesn't effect the team in a desired impact expected of an AM . I would think CC is better suited than cg. Would have been better but for injuries. Maresca knew about it with KDH. Many of us think cg was one of our outstanding players last season because many were injured or played through injury. Remember we had a midtable performance throughout the season.

Agree2 1Disagree

07 Jul 2024 18:14:54
Ed's please put me out my misery are we still trying for William's and oshimen just due to me reading so much that we are but if not am going to stop reading things

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Nico Williams (LW/RW) Young Basque winger and brother to Inaki who has eased himself in to the first team over the last two seasons. Terse response from the Spanish U21 set up (along the lines of "he does not score many goals for an attacker") when told he was changing his allegiance to Ghana, like his brother - and that led to him changing back to Spain. There was plenty of interest in him so a contract extension and buy out clause were awarded to the player at the start of 2022 and again in December 2023, pricing him out of a move to Barcelona plus a significant signing on fee, plus wages of €350k per week - but they remain interested although they need to sell before buying so must prioritise. Likely to be preferred to Luis Diaz who may find himself struggling for options. The player has made it clear he wants to move to Barcelona but the club say he is happy and wants to stay. Seen as far more affordable than Khvicha Kvaratskhelia or Rafael Leao for PSG. The Aston Villa coach wishes to be reunited and they will push for a deal in the summer but he may opt to stay for a year or two more after signing a new contract. Looked at by numerous Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal as well as Barcelona and Real Madrid. Chelsea are put off by the attitude, wages being asked for and he is not first choice but an advisor is still pushing Chelsea to make a bid. Arsenal may bite and make an offer and Newcastle offer a wildcard option. Should get the move he wants to Barcelona.

Victor Osimhen (S) Napoli made it clear to Chelsea who enquired in 2021 that even €100M would not buy the player - but they do maintain an interest and he was first choice but they are looking elsewhere after not getting a warm response from the player - but some at the club are still confident he will sign - and Napoli are interested in Lukaku. Al Hilal may well have offered Napoli the huge fee they were looking for, but that may not suit the player just yet. Real Madrid could look to him as an option to Haaland but Madrid would want to offer players in exchange and ideally they would want to wait another year. He signed a new contract and, at the behest of his agent, included a release clause. Arsenal had a preferred option but are less confident that he will sign and see the price of Osimhen as too high - but they might try to offer Smith-Rowe as part of the deal - but Napoli want to keep things simple. PSG have him on a list of potential Mbappe replacements and they are looking at a LW and a S to minimise the impact of Mbappe departing - but their focus is on a high-end goalscoring LW initially. If Manchester City were to lose Haaland, he would be an option but it won't be this summer. Manchester United interest has gone. Liverpool are not an option. There will be a return from Michael Emenalo with a very good offer. If he stays another year in Naples it means they may need to sell Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. Chelsea may return with the offer of Lukaku and some cash - but will no longer pay the full release clause.}

Was there anything with Chelsea / Khvicha Kvaratskhelia or is that a non starter, not likely, can’t remember if there was some sort of swap deal with him too mentioned.

Agree1 1Disagree

07 Jul 2024 15:44:22
We seem very keen on Samu, maybe taken our top priority option, although there's a lot of talk of Napoli lowering value to draw offers?

Believable1 1Unbelievable

07 Jul 2024 21:18:12
I thought AM had given a hard no on Samu?

Agree1 1Disagree

08 Jul 2024 07:33:49
I did too, it is only few on Twitter saying we’re still trying with athletico so could be rubbish to be fair.
