Hi Ed is there a chance that we will go in for Alen Halilovic he looks a great young talent
Thanks {Ed002's Note - Dinamo Zagreb's Halilovic is attracting the attention of many of Europe's leading side including Real Madrid (who have had an offer turned down), Inter, Juventus, Ajax, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal. A move to England in the short term is unlikely due to his age but both Inter and Manchester City are again pushing.}

I hope we get him- he would be a perfect backup striker/winger.

I wouldn't mind if Nando stayed beyond the season only to be on the bench replaced by Cavani and Falcao. He has got experience and I still believe he will become the striker he used to be. I back Nando 100%!

Lewis, you have completely lost the plot. The club need to get rid of him ASAP. Paying a bloke 170k a week, while he sits on the bench is unbelievably stupid! Especially if it hinders others development (Lukaku, Chelsea FC).

Agree0 Disagree0

How can u have a striker on about 200k/w on the bench? What impact will he make from the bench that he's not had the chance to make in 2yrs? I'll rather Lamps stays for experience than Nando. Having said that, without sentiments, it's time to move all the underperformers and fringe players on and build a strong squad capable of competing at all fronts.

Agree0 Disagree0

I had faith in Torres for a long time and hoped he would come good, but clearly he will never be the player he once was. Watching him frustrates me, and last night, although in retrospect this was quite out of order, but I was actually hoping Torres got injured so Benitez isn't forced to play him against City at the weekend. Sticking him on the bench at £170k p/w is madness and I'm sure the club would not let this happen. Sorry Nando, it's time to go!

As is stands ED who is currently best placed to get Mourinho for the manager's job next year PSG or Chelsea? {Ed002's Note - I am not sure "best placed" is appropriate at this time.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Is Mourinho PSG's preferred choice as next Manager ED? or do they have other targets? {Ed002's Note - They made it clear that they were interested in him but have been considering other other options.}

Hi Ed is it true that Real Madrid are looking to move Di Maria on this summer? I know Chelsea have been seriously interested in the past, great player.

PB {Ed002's Note - Di Maria has been offered for sale to PSG as part of a package with another Real Madrid player. I would think he could also be used as bait for either Bale or Silva.}

Believable2 Unbelievable1

What player do Madrid want from PSg then ED002? if they are willing to offer Di Maria and another player? {Ed002's Note - They want cash not a player.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I assume the other player is Higuan Ed002? {Ed002's Note - The other player offered is Higuain, who PSG want to buy regardless.}

Agree0 Disagree0

what clubs shown an interest in El shaarawy? {Ed002's Note - Clubs such as PSG and Cologne have shown an interest in El Shaarawy over the past year but it is Real Madrid and possibly Arsenal who may well look to strike a deal with Milan at some point. They have no intention of selling.}
