Ed all I am seeing is talk of Werner and Sancho. Whilst I appreciate 100% categorically neither is happening, is there even any interest what so ever from us?

{Ed002's Note - At least you have moved on from Mbappe.
Timo Werner (S) RBL know of the interest of Chelsea who consider TW as a suitable replacement for Giroud - but they have other preferred options. Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid remain keen - but this could change quickly depending on other targets clubs have - for example, if by some chance MU were able to sign a Free Agent for the summer then interest in TW would go - equally if other clubs were not able to sign their targets, interest in TW might increase. Atletico signing Cavani would likely kill off their interest. Would Timo Werner be interested in a move to sit on the bench at Liverpool most of the time? If the answer is yes, or if Firmino is leaving then it makes sense. Many of the fans expect Klopp to add all of these players without anyone leaving and then completely change tactics and rotate them - it makes zero sense and the club has to meet Home Grown quotas as well. PSG are concerned about being shunned by Icardi and have looked at TW but have not declared any interest. Mr Mourinho is keen for Spurs to take him but there are concerns about the cost. The interest of Dortmund has gone with the signing of Haarland. Bayern Munich were never going to do business in January and played down all transfer talk but there is no doubt that Robert Lewandowski, who will be 32 at the start of next season, is going to need replacing in the next 18 months - and the plan had always been that it would be Timo Werner - they could yet look to do something or perhaps suggest he waits another year at RBL who have offered a new contract.

(b) Jadon Sancho (RW) The total cost of the full package (transfer fee, agent fee, signing on fee and FA payment) is simply outrageous - otherwise he would be moving to Chelsea. Some interested sides will be shocked in to stepping back because of the costs - so Inter can be removed as they are looking to take another youngster from England; Juventus have other players they will look to first; Manchester City see him as over priced. Manchester United are keen but the budget may not stretch and they have been talking (yesterday actually) to another side about taking a young player in the summer but they could return with an offer. Jadon Sancho is down the list and too expensive for Barcelona - he would want assurances of game time and he not first choice for them as they have a priority signing who will soak up a lot of the funds. Real Madrid have a different primary target who will cost a world record fee which will kill any chance of a move if it happens. PSG are not looking at Sancho and expect a similar, although older, player to be offered to them in part exchange in the summer. If Liverpool are looking to replace Salah I think there are cheaper options who would suit their needs available. So potentially an option for all of these sides but the total cost would need to change considerably for something to happen.}

Thank you Ed fir your detailed reply I very much appreciate it. Don’t think I ever asked about Mbappe though lol, that was never happening😊.

{Ed002's Note - I thought Mbappe was one of the many done deals?}

Thanks so much for all this thought-provoking info Ed002 - I love reading your posts when you dangle scraps without revealing any names!

Might I be the first to bite please and ask:

Is the youngster MU we’re talking to yesterday Jude Bellingham?

Also, is the player OSG expect to be offered in part exchange (presumably for Neymar) Antoine Greizemab?

Thanks again, appreciate it if you don’t want to reveal any mire info yet!

What relevance is our interest if you know we categorically won’t sign them?

You also told people to move on from Werner yday. I’m amazed the Ed’s tolerate you’re questions.

Yet all you continue to add Shaq is abuse and questioning honest posters like me who rely on the Ed’s information. Yes I did say just that yesterday and today I have gone back on what I said a little and asked the question. Why not?

You thought about adding something a little more positive to the site yet? Maybe mix it up a little bit be daring? Be happy and if you don’t like my posts maybe don’t read or comment on them!

Thanks Ed’s do you see him being priced out of a move this summer?

{Ed002's Note - Not Werner but he may have to think carefully about his options. Sancho is already priced out of a move - hence there today being a proposal to return to speak to one of the interested sides again. To buy at the current figures would take all but the most stupid out of the calculation - they need to change before it becomes viable. Would you accept the exit of Salah plus significant addition funds to sign him as a good deal?}

Once again Ed002 gets it all wrong. Mbappe is IN THE BAG, joining in June but will go straight into the u23's until he learns the ropes. Should see him start in the Caraboa Cup to ease him into the team and maybe Premier League games after the winter break.

Thanks Ed002 for your unending knowledge. ;)

Yes correct I said we won’t sign them then asked Ed’s if we even have interest. There us always lots of interest on players who don’t sign for clubs you know.

Wow you’ve called me a Snowflake ha ha I’m so hurt now.

I do ask questions sometimes repeat and contradict what I’ve asked previously I admit. I’m sorry for annoying you Shaw so much I’ve been on this site for years and visit it daily often without posting. I’ve only ever seen you pull me up on things and ever anyone else. I don’t come on here for arguments I come on here to read posts, ask questions and learn and I feel I do add to the site even if you don’t.

Tell you what you want have to read any my my posts anymore as it’s about time I moved on from the site altogether I think.

Cheers for all your hard work and effort Ed’s over the last 7 or more years. I might return one day but for now I need a break away from the arguments and bully’s.

Take care all.

Come on you two. This flirting is embarrassing. It’s Valentine’s Day, have a date, see if it clicks in real life.
