Hi Ed,
With links today regarding Mbappe and Thiago, if you have time, can we have a little run down of who City are interested in and who could be making way?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Needs an update but something like:
Toby Alderweireld (CB) - but may need to fend off an offer of a new deal from Spurs, Manchester United and Real Madrid
Militao (RB) - Manchester City know they would need to pay well over the odds if he was to move to England in order to get a work permit - but may do so to block a move to Juventus
Julian Weigl (DM)
Jorginho (M)
Fred (CM)
Jean Michael Seri (CM) - looking less likely as someone else in talks
Thiago Alcantara (CM)
Riyad Mahrez (RW)
Paulo Dybala (LW/F)
Thomas Lemar (LW)

Yaya Toure
David Silva

Many thanks Ed.
Shocked they’d let Silva go. A return to Spain for him you think?

{Ed002's Note - At his age he needs to be playing.{

Any chance of potential ins and outs for the summer?


{Ed002's Note - ask in a couple of weeks please.}

Good on Pep for wearing the ribbon. Hard not to like him even when you're not a Manchester City fan!

Is Aguero likely to stay or go in the summer?


{Ed002's Note - I cannot tell you what is likely but there is the possibility he will leave.}

Are they looking to buy another striker (s) and are any teams interested in him?

{Ed002's Note - Atletico may look to taking him back.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Any truth in Citys interest in Mahrez?

{Ed002's Note - (a) Yes. (b) Mahrez handed in the Transfer Request prior to interest hoping for a move to London. (c) City approached Leicester with an offer and were told to double it and they will listen.}

Can we please have the latest on Alexis Sanchez?

Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - In simple term, MU are keen and want to include a player in the deal. MC want to wait until summer when there will be a squad place and wage space available. The wages will be enough to take any other interested parties out of the equation. MC can offer more concern of success at this time}

Do you think the player would consider Manchester United seeing as though he wants to go to Manchester City?


{Ed002's Note - I can only speculate - perhaps he would.}

Hope your well

Any latest news on who the club will buy this month

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - It is really difficult for me to answer questions about the timing of transfers. It would not however be a surprise to see Southampton approached for Ryan Bertrand. An alternalte LB solution might be Philipp Max.

In midfield the club are keen on both Frenkie de Jong (M) and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (M) but there is a lot of interest in Milinkovic-Savic from elsewhere and a move to City in January is unlikely. de Jong has signed a new deal but both player and club know the interest will stay. Maybe one for 2019.

After that, the long list of CB targets remains with van Dijk removed and Untiti added - wildcard could be de Vrij or Milan Skriniar.}

Happy Christmas

Are the club looking to buy Jonny Evans this January?


{Ed002's Note - The club has a lengthy list of centre backs they are interested in. He might be at the bottom.}

Can you please provide an update regarding January transfers? Do you think Alexis Sanchez will come in January?

Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It is difficult to say with any accuracy when transfers will actually happen. MC are one of a number of sides interested in Alexis Sanchez. The club has a lengthy list of centre backs they have shown an interest in:
Mouctar Diakhaby (CB)
Inigo Martinez (CB)
Clement Lenglet (CB)
Jose Gimenez (CB)
Virgil van Dijk (CB)
Raphael Varane (CB)
Andreas Christensen (CB)
Toby Alderweireld (CB)

They also desire left back cover and would like Ryan Bertrand but he may not wish to be a long-term bench warmer.

Interest remains in Sergi Roberto (RWB) but I think it unlikely.

In midfield the club are keen on both Frenkie de Jong (M) and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (M) but there is a lot of interest in Milinkovic-Savic from elsewhere.

It is unlikely that Marco Asensio (LW) will move to Manchester City and I think interest may have gone.

And for Alexis Sanchez, yes the club is keen.}

Will the club try to get Sanchez in January or wait till the summer?

Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Sanchez is able to talk with other clubs in January - but not Manchester City. This could force their hand. But as I said, I cannot say when things will actually happen.}

United Fan Here, At the rate city are scoring goals there is a general consensus being formed that since they have gelled, they are next to impossible to beat.
Just wanted to ask the opinion of the various editors on whether this city team are as good as the media are proclaiming them to be. Or have they got weaknesses that a more organized team can easily exploit. A simple review would be awesome, because this is something fans from all major clubs are thinking of right now. Cheers!

{Ed002's Note - They are just doing well. Manchester United are doing well at the same time. I would have them as likely winners of the Premier League this year.}

Ed02, you mention on the Arsenal page that City have a plan B if Sanchez doesn't happen, who does this refer to?

{Ed002's Note - Aubameyangadingdong.}

Hi Ed what on Earth is the situation with Roberts? Surely a loan move wouldn't take this long?

{Ed007's Note - I'll guess it'll be tomorrow or Friday one the European match and possibly the draw is out the way. Rodgers was obviously in Astana and Lawwell will be in Monaco so more than likely Friday.}

23 Aug 2017 20:15:33
Cheers mate . any chance of a permanent transfer on the cards?

{Ed007's Note - Some people seem to think that's what the delay is but I can't see it. Peter Lawwell was down at the City game the other night with one of the finance guys which had people asking why we'd need someone like that over a loan deal.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2017 20:34:44
I'm hoping we were just waiting on the cl money before turning the key on a permanent deal he will be the best option for all if city have a buyback clause.

{Ed007's Note - As long as we're not waiting on the VvD money. Don't worry, this time next week it'll all be nearly over.}

Dear Ed,

Any competition from other clubs for Jonny Evans or is it just City in the running?

Morning Ed, Celtic fan here. Just wondering if you had any idea how much city would be looking for to sell Patrick Roberts? I'm not sure if Patrick would come to Celtic other than a loan deal but was just wondering what a potential fee would be. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - They are not looking to sell at this time Garry. There are three options for a loan, the advantage Celtic has is they know the player and the player will slot right in. However, Manchester City likely feel it might be an advantage to place him with one of the other interested sides to gain a different type of experience. I think that unless there is a sdignificant step up this season that he could be sold next summer.}

Cheers Ed, would love to see wee Patrick back at Celtic either way.

{Ed002's Note - It is certainly possible Garry.}

Hi ed002, I was wondering whether City were looking at any other players/ positions other than another LB? Thanks =].

{Ed002's Note - They would like Sanchez and a CB and they have stepped away from Bertrand. Right now money is an issue.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

08 Aug 2017 12:59:32
Ed002, Are they looking to offload any players to raise the cash? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - not beyond what is planned.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 18:03:06
Sorry if I'm just being a bit dense, but those players would be: Mangala, Delph, Roberts, Nasri and Bony?

{Ed002's Note - Broadly yes, but if Sanchez or Mbappe or whatever were to arrive that list will get one larger.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2017 18:59:33
I'm assuming sterling would be the one to make way, ed002? Would there be any clubs interested in him? Thanks :)

{Ed002's Note - No, there is no plan to move Sterling on.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2017 07:42:37
Alright ed? Just wondering if there is any more info regarding Patrick Roberts having a future at City after again playing in the friendly with West Ham? He seems to have been getting a fair bit of game time this pre season.


{Ed002's Note - I expect him to move on this summer with both Celtic and Southampton interested.}

Manchester City have spent more on transfers this windows than the neymar fee, its up to psg if they can afford the fee and want the player good for them, ssn report they can still comply with ffp, i read a report that stated in 2001 zidane was signed for 48 million pound was more expensive then than the neymar deal is now, as a percentage of what clubs earned then and now.

Do you expect City to bid for VanDijk? Or have they any other CB targets?

Ed you heard any thing about zinchenko seems napoli cetic rangers looking for loan deal? Who is fav to land him.

{Ed002's Note - I would expect him to move to Napoli.}
