Ederson opens up on future amid Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester United links

Ederson has been linked with a move away from Atalanta this summer, with Barcelona, Liverpool, and Manchester United interested.

Ederson has been linked with clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United and Barcelona. However, the Brazilian international has now opened up on his situation and revealed that he is focused on his football and that his agent will deal with any transfer opportunities that come his way in the coming months.

The Atalanta midfielder also revealed that he is comfortable in Italy and that he is enjoying his time with La Dea. However, the midfielder remains curious about the Premier League, and it will be interesting to see if he ends up in English football in the coming months.

He said to AS, “I am not used to following this whole world of transfers. Rumours are one thing that, as my wife and I often say, will always pass. We are calm, happy, we enjoy the moment.

“If there has to be some kind of change, I trust my agents. I have an agent who has been with me for over 13 years, so the moment he thinks something positive is going to happen, he will tell me and we are in contact about that. We talked a lot about taking advantage of the moment, and right now I’m doing very well at Atalanta. I don’t think it’s those speculations that should distract me.

“If something comes up about a transfer, the club has to accept it first, and that is the most important thing. I have a good relationship with Atalanta, so the moment they come and tell me that they have some kind of offer, that will be when the talks start. At the moment, I am an Atalanta player and I am still an Atalanta player. When my time with the national team ends, I will also enjoy a short vacation, which is important to rest, and then I will return to Italy.

“I like Italy, I’m well adapted, but I’m curious about the Premier League, so I don’t know. I’m still growing, so I don’t know if I’ll stay in Italy, I think I still have more to prove. If I go somewhere else, then too. I will continue to grow.”

Liverpool and Manchester United are reportedly keen on the central midfielder, and they could certainly use someone with his skill set. The Brazilian international is a complete central midfielder who will chip in with goals, creativity and defensive cover.

He scored seven goals in all competitions last season and helped the Serie A club win the UEFA Europa League. Ederson impressed with his performances against Liverpool in the European competitions as well. There have been strong rumours that the two clubs could look to sign him. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops.

Manchester United and Liverpool need the Atalanta midfielder

Sofyan Amrabat has returned to his parent club upon the expiry of his loan deal, and Manchester United need midfield reinforcements. The Brazilian midfielder could be the ideal acquisition for them. Similarly, Liverpool need to replace Thiago Alcantara who is becoming a free agent. Ederson would be a quality addition for both clubs, and he would improve them in the middle of the park.

Meanwhile, Barcelona need more depth in the central midfield unit as well. Ederson could form a quality partnership with the likes of Frenkie De Jong next season. The opportunity to join clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United, and Barcelona will be quite tempting for any player, and Ederson is likely to be attracted to the possibility of joining them.

It will be interesting to see if they come forward with offers to sign the South American midfielder in the coming weeks. He has the physical and technical attributes to do well in English and Spanish football. He could be a key player for all three clubs.
