Hello Ed002. Huge fan of your knowledge and your character.
If you don't mind, I am really curious about Manchester City transfer targets. Thank you in advance.

{Ed002's Note - LWB, CB, DM, CM, AM needed

Although not a position they need to fill, MC have been keeping an eye on a few:
Joao Cancelo (LWB) first choice and there is a good chance something can be done
Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RWB) Crystal Palace don't wish to sell although there has been interest declared by Manchester City but a move seems unlikely without game time and that would do nothing but stiffle his career. Other clubs looked at him last season but Crystal Palace made clear that they wanted to keep him. He should stay where he is for now and take the opportunities he has.
Mario Fernandes (RB) unlikely
Max Aarons (RB) looked at but won't happen

Ben Chilwell (LWB) was first choice but looks difficult
Alex Grimaldo (LWB) Plan B
Luan Candido (LB) moving elsewhere
Junior Firpo (LB) – looks to be heading elsewhere but Manchester City are keen given he can also play DM and CB

Harry Maguire (CB) to replace Kompany
Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) very, very expensive if available and with discussions with another club resulted in Napoli saying he is not for sale - but that won't end the interest of a number of sides
Ozan Kabak (CB) has just moved from Galatasaray to Stuttgart so any immediate move is unlikely - and to boost his value - but much is expected of Kabak and he has attracted scouts from Manchester City, RB Leipzig, Arsenal, Fortuna Dusseldorf, Manchester United and, in particular, Inter Milan whose interest (together with Manchester City) led to the new contract with Gala he signed last year.
One for the future, Francisco Ferreira (CB) - Benfica won't want to sell Ferro and would want far too much money to do so

Ruben Neves (DM) may be priced out of a move but efforts to strike some sort of deal will be made - unlikely I would think
Julian Weigl (DM) interest waning and PSG may try to hold on to him
Thomas Partey (DM) - no approach from Manchester United but an approach from Manchester City turned away. Confirmed Ghana coach had suggested Manchester United as a destination in November. Inter interest went with a price rise sometime last year. Don't rule him out.
Boubakary Soumare (DM/CM) long term interest since he was at PSG and still being watched - but not ready for the significant step up so would likely be sent back on loan - also watched by Monaco, Valencia, Watford (who have spoken with Lille), Newcastle, Everton and Leicester

Rodrigo Hernandez (DM/CM) MC pushing for a deal - very much first choice
Houssem Aouar (CM) Manchester City approached Lyon about Aouar and Ndombele in Milan in January and it was made clear that only one key player will be allowed to leave this summer unless particularly stupid money is offered. A Plan B.
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (CM) lost out on FdJ but seen as expensive and stronger interest from elsewhere
Tanguy Ndombele (CM/DM) - seen by Guardiola as the Yaya Toure replacement who could suit Manchester City for years to come - the enquiry with Lyon was simple, "he can be available for ten times what he cost us in the summer" (which was a cheap €8M) - an enormous step up and an outrageous price – and is likely heading elsewhere after talks
Saul Niguez (CM) seen as too expensive
Nicolo Zaniolo (CM) won't happen
Tiago Dantas (CM) - a youngster that Benfica consider Manchester City are trying to “steal” from them
Youri Tielemans (CM) very unlikely
Giovani lo Celso (CM) interest has gone
Ilay Elmkies (CM) 19 year old from Hoffenheim whose agent Jonathan Barnett is hawking around - Manchester City have taken a look, as have Ajax – I don’t expect anything to happen
Frenkie de Jong (CM) Manchester City looked at the player but he is heading elsewhere

Joao Felix (AM) Benfica will look to hold on to him and will give him a new contract - a move to Manchester City would not be advisable and the asking price is truly ridiculous, but MC are prepared to pay it as are MU and Real Madrid - but heading elsewhere
Isco (AM) - seen as a David Silva replacement but his future is not totally clear right now and he may look to stay in Madrid
Bruno Fernandes (AM) has been looked at
Nabil Fekir (AM) better priced option to BF
Hakim Ziyech (RW/AM) unlikely, will step away as other sides have done due to an issue
Reinier Jesus (AM) 17 year old very expensive and very unlikely

Everton (LW) Manchester City don't see value in the €50M asking price
Dwight McNeil (LW) seen as cover for Leroy Sane leaving

Kylian Mbappe (W/F) - considered initially as an alternative to Mahrez but Manchester City are wary of the price and would need to be looking at him playing in a more fluid role - a little something has now happened that could see a very significant offer made if he became available but I am doubtful at this time if Manchester City would be successful

Lautaro Martinez (S) Atletico, Chelsea, Manchester City and Bayern Munich have all scouted him.
Luka Jovic (S) heading elsewhere
Rodrigo Moreno (F)

Thank you Ed. Do they plan to buy back Angelino from PSV?

One question, Ed002. Are Inter looking to offload Martinez or is the player looking for a move?

Its been a while since we last heard anything about the investigation of the potential breach of FFP rules. Are there any updates on that matter, or have the case been concluded without any sanctions?

Cheers.

Hi eds

Is it true that a few City players including Sane and Jesus have asked to leave? If so do you perhaps know who are interested? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - It is true but it is a slightly different situation with Gabriel Jesus as MC cannot find a starting role for him. A third party acting on behalf of Leroy Sane has approache three sides, one in England who have other targets, Juventus and Bayern Munich - both of which have been interested before and both of which want to understand what the cost will be for him. Gabriel Jesus was previously seen as an alternative to Griezmann by Barcelona and has previously been of interest to Juve. Both could still be of interest particularly as Juventus have just lost out on another youngster they had plans to invest in.}

Ed are Spurs the English side a third party acting in behalf of Sane approached?

Thanks Ed!

Probably Man utd or Chelsea. LFC, Spurs and Arsenal simply cannot afford Sane unless some first team players are sold.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Apr 2019 06:35:41
Ed002, any other City player who is looking to leave?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, several will probably be leaving such as Mahrez, Danilo, Otamendi, plus Fernandinho ...}

Bigger summer for them then.

Ed002, are the english side who was approached on behalf of Sane, part of this years Champions League final?

We don’t play with a true holding mid like any other sides in EPL. It is no coincidence we concede when our defenders are exposed against counter. But did we not win the league last season?
People sounds like Liverpool are on the course for treble.
They still need someone to take points off from us.

So you’re a turncoat Harry?

18 Apr 2019 09:52:01
I am not going to make excuses like Liverpool fans do. We won the game yet lost the tie. There are several factors involved.
I have said last week about the first leg where we did not attack Spurs enough and if you can’t defend well against quality then you are going to concede.
Not the end of the world. You learn.

You’re not going to make excuses like a Liverpool fan, you were a Liverpool fan about 3 minutes ago! I do worry about you, I can only guess that you’re going through puberty to be this immature.

Move on Mahrez and bring Son from spurs. Pay what it takes. The most underrated player in the league. Could play either side and up top. The lad is top top class. I am a massive fan. He would be an excellent addition. Him and Sterling either side wow!

Harry you ok? Come back to the LFC page I miss your random posts and now City have lost you can revert to being a LFC fan again.

17 Apr 2019 20:07:21
1-0 inside 5 mts and I am not even surprised. Raheem Sterling is the best player in the league by an absolute mile. Could play anywhere across the front three and he delivers.

So Liverpool fans still think this UTD team will get a result against City. Of course we don’t have Messi but you still got Jones and young 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

There is more chance of city dropping points against Leicester than UTD 😂😂😂

We will smash them for a new record.

If city win their next ten games then they would go down into the real history book as the only team to win a quadruple. By then they would have played an incredible 63 games this season compare to their nearest rival Liverpool who can at their very best play 50.

10/ 10 and City will cement their legacy for years to come!

When did you become a City fan?
Below, you talk about it being easy to support a team when you’re winning.
Isn’t that what you’ve done on your casual flick over to City?

Very easy. They are the best footballing side at present. They have the best infrastructure in England. An excellent project and their status is growing, the coming generations will have an easy pick! 😎😎 and most importantly you don’t need to pretend here. It’s actually fun here.

I saw the UTD game at the weekend and if Liverpool fans think they will take points off from city then they are absolutely deluded 😂😂. Not only we will smash them at their own grave yard we will make sure the sky is blue and has always been.

Celebrating half a decade of no PL title of Manchester United.

Without a doubt Walter. Who is stopping City?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 18:21:19
Unfortunately no one it would seem. Liverpool have way passed my expectations this season, but as predicted will come up short.
can see us struggling for top four next season. Also I believe every time we finish second the following year we finish outside the top 4. let's hope the trend doesn't continue.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 18:47:07
Liverpool will spend again like the last few years and that will of course go unnoticed 😂😂😂 ( because they field academies ) They are in a great shape but unfortunately they are against a team that is even in a better shape. One trophy under the belt, the other one awaiting, a game in hand advantage and a home game against Kane less spurs 😆😆😆.
City will bypass UTD’s midfield at least 50 times at OT. I am sure they will park the bus!

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 19:58:39
No doubt you are correct. It's all such a Shame.

There is a higher chance of sun rising from the north than UTD beating City. You are welcome anytime here.

Okay this is going down to the wire and I got one am happy about it. City doesn’t fear anyone. Win all your games and you are the champions ( it’s as simple as that )
If city managed to win all their remaining games including or excluding the CL fixture against then there is your answer to all the questions.

Greatest team in PL era
Greatest manager ever to manage a PL team
Probably the greatest title race ever in English Premier League

There is no team that has ever stopped City from scoring! Never ever.

Not a bad result. But Pep got it all wrong! Delph should be back to league one! Paying the price for not buying a left back. Mahrez is a fraud! My god £70 mill player.
David Silva is a midfielder and not a second striker. Subs were atrocious tbh.

City will now need to beat spurs twice to complete their mission quadruple.
