Hi Eds,

Just wondered if you know what is going to happen to Geronimo Rulli this summer and whether city will buy him back?


{Ed002's Note - Manchester City has a new first pick goalkeeper joining.}

Cheers Ed. Makes sense with ederson joining. Hope all is well.

There are rumours in Spain that City will sign Alexis Sánchez soon. Is there any truth that it's happening? I know he was a target for them but I thought it was PSG where he would go. Can you offer any information?

Thank you :)

{Ed002's Note - There have been talks between his representatives and Manchester City, PSG (who have taken another route) and Bayern Munich.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Surely City don't have space in their squad for Sanchez unless Sterling or Silva is leaving ed?

{Ed001's Note - Sterling is not seen as good enough by Pep. He doesn't have to move on to be supplanted as first choice and Pep likes to rotate anyway.}

08 Jun 2017 15:51:35
I'd assumed that Sterling had been supplanted by Bernardo Silva tbh. With the new lineup being:
B. Silva KDB Sané
Aguero/ Jesus.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, but Pep likes rotation options.}

11 Jun 2017 03:14:08
Not sure Sanchez is a big fan of any 'rotation policy' Ed001. Still think he will end up at Bayern myself. Imagine the strop Sanchez would throw if he got substituted in a big game or left on the bench altogether. There would be a war between him and Pep.

{Ed001's Note - agreed. I have never seen it as a likely move for him either.}

01 Jun 2017 14:12:27
Hi Ed,
Nice and quiet here so thought I'd ask, is Mendy close to signing from Monaco?
If so, City are getting their business done early and very, very well.

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2017 14:25:01
Thank you. I thought it'd be safer on here than the Liverpool page.

{Ed001's Note - and easier.}

01 Jun 2017 15:00:18
Out of interest, Walker for right back and a replacement for Aguero and they're pretty much done? Oh, and a centre back of course.

Good evening

I notice you say man city are interested in aubameyang but where would he fit in with all the other attackers?


{Ed002's Note - The club were expecting him to replace Aguero but right now Aubameyang is looking like he is heading elsewhere.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 15:24:21
Who does it seem that aubameyang will sign for at the moment? Real Madrid?

{Ed002's Note - No it doesn't mean anything.}

26 May 2017 21:41:03
Widely reported that Manchester City have signed Bernado Silva. Given it's not the transfer window currently I'm wondering how this works. Is it simply premature reporting and just some talks between clubs have gone on or have contracts and agreements genuinely been signed?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


{Ed002's Note - Agreement has been reached that he will sign when the window opens but it won't be complete until then.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 17:49:23
Ok I see, thanks for the help.

26 May 2017 19:12:40
Good evening

Any news on the latest for Hart and inacheio


{Ed002's Note - There is nothing new on Hart.

Kelechi Iheanacho will leave this summer to get first team opportunities. Dortmund see him as a replacement for Aubameyang and have already been in discussions with Manchester City, Hoffenheim have declared an interest but the request for Southampton to take him on loan has been rebuffed. An offer is on the table from West Ham. Right now his agent is seeking interest from elsewhere.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 May 2017 21:54:23
What is the latest on the future of clichy?

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - I think it is pretty certain he will leave and his agent will be calling around looking for options - way too early to nail anything down.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi Ed,

With 3rd place and a CL spot now confirmed, any news of the targets we will be going for this summer?

I imagine this transfer window is going to be crazy - and not just for us. With Liverpool/ Chelsea needing to improve to handle CL football and both Arsenal/ United striving to get a charge on the top 4 or even the title, this summer is going to be insane.


{Ed002's Note - Quick and dirty but:

Ederson Moraes (GK from Benfica - expected to sign but MU may see him as an option if DDG leaves)
Jordan Pickford (has been looked at but with MC keen on another it seems unlikely)
Gianluigi Donnarumma (unlikely)

Nelson Semedo (RB) (expensive with interest from elsewhere but seems to be the first choice right now)
Hector Bellerin (might be very tough to persuade Arsenal to sell and barcelona are very keen - unlikely)
Fabinho (of interest to MU as well - may be seen as a DM option)
Elseid Hysaj (Napoli would sell but only at a high price)
Benjamin Henrichs (RB – wanted, did not happen in January but he will extend his deal with BL.)

Antonio Rüdiger (back to first choice)
Aymeric Laporte - (a deal was agreed last January but nothing came of it post his injury)
Yerry Mina (approach rejected by player and interest gone in the Palmeiras youngster who will likely head to Barcelona who have a 2018 option)
Virgil van Dijk (still a maybe)
Boubacar Kamara (Summer will see an effort made to secure him for the future - l'OM will resist and don't need the money)
Leonardo Bonucci (unlikely)

Juan Bernat (first choice and Guardiola will push for the Bayern youngster)
Alex Grimaldo (probably a new first choice as a LB if Bernat is not available)
Ryan Bertrand (LB) - Bertrand and Walker seem to be the favourites right now if Bernat and Grimaldo bids fail
Kyle Walker (LB) - Emerging as an expensive option
Benjamin Mendy (versatile but so expensive he may well have been priced out of a move)
Kieran Tierney (everyone and his dog is looking - unlikely)
David Alaba (unlikely)
Jose Luis Gaya (interest is back but probably not)
Djibril Sidibe (interest growing but unlikely)
Ryan Sessegnon (unlikely)
Danny Rose (an expemsive plan B option)
Aaron Martin (LB) - unlikely

William Carvalho - potential long-term Yaya Toure replacement
Ivan Rakitic (there is interest and Barcelona would be open to a high offer)
Tony Kroos (likely heading elsewhere)
Youri Tielemans - No, he will go to ASM
Dele Alli - Not going to happen
Isco - something may be possible

Gelson Martins (will sign a new deal at Sporting and look for a future move to Barcelona or Madrid - don't rule out a bid)
Kylian Mbappe (prefers Real Madrid or PSG – not keen on the idea of the grim north of England with all of the pits and mines)
Andre Silva (MU also interested in the Porto winger)
Thomas Lemar - difficult

Aguero will stay as MC cannot get the player they want. Alexis Sanchez (unlikely - if he leaves it will be to PSG or Juventus)
Moussa Dembele (the player would be dumb to move to MC and demands to be first pick - unlikely)
Messi (will maybe stay at Barcelona but City will bid if the chance comes)
Kasper Dolberg (everyone and his dog is watching him)
Antoine Griezmann (possibly)
Thomas Muller (I suspect interest has gone)
Kylian Mbappé (very unlikely)

Hi ed thought it best to ask here. You mentioned on another page that city have talked to Monaco about 2 players fabhino being one. Can I ask who the other player is?

{Ed002's Note - Bernardo Silva - thyey have also asked about Kylian Mbappé but were previously told that he was not for sale.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 May 2017 12:44:42
Thank you ed

13 May 2017 10:16:49
Any city fans on here heard anything regarding paddy Roberts and his man city future? And what the chances of Celtic signing him again on loan or permanently?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2017 07:36:46
Pep wants to add two fullbacks, one right sided one left, and a winger. While all that is fairly well known, what surprises me is that Pep is not impressed with Sterling and would be open to letting him go. Surprises me because of his age. I would have thought he was of an age to be moulded into the player Pep wants.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 May 2017 00:57:00
It's really surprising as he seemed to rate him earlier on in the season didn't he ed001? Any idea what could have changed his mind?

{Ed001's Note - because of his lack of end product. He should have scored and created about 20+ more goals but his final ball was awful more often than not. The only thing that is going to save him, or could do anyway, is that Navas is going so he might become the rotation option for a season. Depending on who can be brought in.}

03 May 2017 08:20:58
Hey Ed,

Any news on Summer transfer targets?

{Ed002's Note - Much will depend on whether or not the club can obtain a CL spot. Certainly Kyle Walker is of interest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2017 17:30:15
Hi Eds, what's the future of Iheanacho, are there any clubs sniffing around him?

{Ed002's Note - I am not expecting Iheanacho to go anywhere permanently this summer - just perhaps a loan. Next summer things will be different if nothing has changed with respect to his first team opportunities.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2017 08:13:21
Hi ed002, any chance of that sharkopod?

{Ed002's Note - It was done some weeks ago.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2017 00:23:17
Any news on possible summer transfer targets?

{Ed002's Note - I can't answe questions about timing but I can tell you where there is interest - remind me in a day or two and you can have a Sharkopod if you want.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2017 21:32:29
Yes please ed002 😀

24 Jan 2017 16:33:58
Seconded ed002!

{Ed002's Note - Friday afternoon looks likely.}

23 Oct 2016 13:18:50
Thanks Ed002 surprising though. Would love him at Utd but that isn't going to happen.

Take it the replacement is Augymang from Dortmund?

{Ed002's Note - Aubameyang is the player that Manchester City want but there is interest in him from elsewhere, whilst he wants a move to another club.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Oct 2016 09:56:15
Hope you're well and the travelling is settling down and great to see you back on the pages.

Would you mind sharing what is the current situation with Augero and where you see Man City going next in the transfer market?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City have informed Sergio Aguero and Hernan Reguera that they do not see the player in their future plans and that he can leave when he finds a new club. Real Madrid do maintain an interest in Aguero but timing is not good unless a deal for January could be agreed (as the CAS case dealing with their ban may not (probably not) have been resolved by then). PSG will certainly turn to Aguero which in turn will make life difficult for Real Madrid. Milan has new ownership but right now has other plans, and, regardless of the money coming in from China, still have to balance the books. A number of English sides could afford the transfer fee but right now I am not aware of interest. Manchester City will need to be realistic with their financial demands and cannot price Aguero out of a move - as that would possibly stop their bringing in his replacement.}

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Nov 2016 19:40:31
This may be wide of the mark, but is this replacement potentially Luis Suarez?

{Ed002's Note - He would not be first choice.}

03 Nov 2016 09:02:41
League 1 team fan (I won't name them) just browsing the prem sites seeing what fans have to say, etc. Decent sites by the way well done to the editors! Had to comment: don't understand this mentality of City. For me Sergio is arguably the best in the prem (Courtinho I also like) but definitely the best striker by a mile. Personally I see Chelsea Arsenal Liverpool and good bets for 3 of the top 4 this season (in any order) and if City have Aguero I'd put them above Spurs for the 4th spot. Getting rid of him would make me doubt.

22 Sep 2016 10:42:26
Mourinho still blaming everyone else when his team fail (doctor, ball boys, players and now, previous United manager, pmsl.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi Ed,

Any ideas on who's likely to be finalized before the window?

Has Nasri widely reported to be loaned to Sevilla along with Joe to Torino to be confirmed, any news on Bony or any other potential outs less heard of?


{Ed002's Note - Nasri is being loaned to Sevilla and Hart to Torino as have been explained. As previously noted, Mangala will leave but there is no agreement where with offers still being considered - but one is from Porto and that is the likely destination. Bony will go. Toure I expect to leave in January. Denayer will probably stay but there is interest from a couple of clubs - one to sort out this morning. An offer made on Thursdya for Mbabbe has been rejected.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2016 12:53:06
Hi all,

Thought I'd throw a proper rumour on here that, from my source, is apparently nailed on.

A friend of mine's wife works at a catering company, where the head chef there has a second job as Joe Harts personal chef. He has apparently just handed in his notice and said that he is moving to Spain for a year, to continue his duties for Joe whilst he is on a year long loan at Barcelona.

I can't personally validate it of course, but my source was 100% positive of this.

No idea if there are any whispers from the Eds on to Joe's next club?


{Ed002's Note - Firstly Manchester City are not looking for a loan - the preference is to sell him on. Right now the first thing to happen is to see how Manchester City feel about a creative offer from Sevilla. If they are open to it then the player will have the option to decide if he wants a move to Spain. Next up, Everton might be interested and if a deal could be agreed between the clubs, then again the player will need to think about the option. Else, his agent needs to get some work done.

Barcelona are going to sign Jasper Cillessen to replace Bravo - although interestingly they had another plan if it were ter Stegen to leave.

Little of this should be a suprise.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2016 16:24:53
Hi Ed002,

I thought they got it confused with Sevilla but they said Barcelona when I asked again, along with saying it was off now anyway. Wether it was actually ever a realistic option is debatable in itself.

Would there be any more information on what this creative offer would be? I personally think he would opt Everton providing the new owners could sell him on their ambitions of achieving Champions League football.


{Ed002's Note - Barcelona have never been an option. The detail of the offer from Sevilla is really of no relevance.}
