Stephen Clemence will sign for Leicester today after completing a medical. This will hopefully signal Dj Cambells move to the walkers.
Buffon's contract negotiations have stalled and also has a new–found taste for lower league football and does not feel like Juve is enough of a challenge for him anymore, expect Leeds to swoop for Buffon if Simon Franks from the Redbus group is successful with his expected takeover of Leeds. if he fails to sign Buffon then expect a move for Real Madrid duo casillas + Diarra, who are both unsettled at Madrid and available for cheaper than many expect.
do not be surpised if Leeds sign Francis Jeffers from Blackburn. the potential new chairman has demanded world class signings to bring Leeds back to the Premier League.
I know this
Yakubu from Middlesbrough to Manchester City for £12 million
Wright Phillips from Chelsea to Middlesbrough £8 million
Hulse from Sheff United to Middlesbrough £2 million
Young from Charlton to Middlesbrough £5 million
Schwarzer is going nowhere after seeing the players coming in. Middlesbrough top six place and cup finalists.
Money is not everything, first team football at a club going places is. Come on Boro.
Some Scottish rumours coming from my agent mate. Naismith will stay at Killie as they prefer to sell him on to an English team either in January or the end of the season. Celtic will not sign anyone else. Falkirk are ready to make a transfer that knowone expects + John Stewart will be loaned out to a first divison team and if he does not make inpacted he will be booted out. Suppose to be a current international. Expect more French players at Hibernian in the next couple of weeks. Some Spl teams, EPL and Championship teams are after Paul Baynham. He was Bathgates best player and has decided to go pro again after he spent three years in America. It could be Arsenal he will chose as he has spoke to them and they will offer him to Falkirk on a years loan and since he's a huge Bairns fan that would be his prefered choice. Gretna are struggling to get players to move to them as most players feel they will be down by Christmas.
Brede Hangeland, central defender and Norway international is closely followed by Manchester City, Everton and others from PL. This is also written in Norwegian papers nowadays. Expect him to sign for a Premier League club in the end of July, most probably Manchester City.
Arnar Forsund, central defender, Norway Under–21 international is followed by Spanish, French and also Championship clubs. His contract expires in November. He is extremely talented and can leave Valerenga this Summer.
Yeovil Towns young forward Tom Clarke could join Derby.
Derby will also sign Momo Kallon and LuaLua.
Portsmouth will sign David Nugent and John Utaka in the next couple of days. Van der Vaart and Ljungberg are also targets.
Arsenal are lining up moves for Oba Martins and Leighton Baines.
Middlesbourogh are to bring back Franck Queudrue for £4 million and sign Alan Smith from United who will be completing the Tevez deal in the next week or so.
Nottingham Forest could complete their £500 k treble signing from Leicester City today.
Louis Dodds, Alan Sheehan and Conrad Logan are the players in question.
Yeovil could sign Matt Tubs from Salisbury. Marc Birchem from Queens Park Rangers and Marc Wilson from Pompey.
They will also go for Malcolm Christie and Sean Doherty who will be brought in to replace Arron Davies.
To the guy who said "Everton to gazzump the geordies and get Deco, also EFC to sign Richardson, Baines, Nugent, and Scholes" DREAM ON. We get linked with everyone but sign no–one. Kenwright/Moyes are not willing to gamble on any decent players. Nugent is off to Pompey. Koumas has joined Wigan. Knowing Moyes and Kenwright we'll probably extend Beatties contract for five years (what a waiste of money) and sign some more youth players. GREAT. way things are going in the transfer market we'll finish mid table and exit UEFA cup early next year. The club needs investment. JB
To the Liverpool fan who thinks Owen will play for the Newcastle for one more season then off to Liverpool.
Well you want to hope that we do not quailfy for Europe otherwise you'll have to pay £20 million for him. His contract Clause only applys if NUfc are not in Europe.
Arsenal fans please stop embarrassing yourself and your club by linking Arsenal with every single top forward on the planet. I would expect it from Liverpool or Tottenham fans, but Arsenal has too much class. They will not be signing eto'o, teves, Martins, owen, or Villa. Huntelaar would have to be the biggest name that would sign, but I would prefer him over all the others. besides that, Wenger would sign a forward in France or Holland, or from the u– 20 World Cup. this forward would be one that is still relatively known by the majority of fans, but one that no one ever thought about buying until he scores a bunch of goals and Wenger gets him on the cheap and turns him into another wiltord or van Persie, proving that Wenger is still is the greatest manager to grace the modern game.
To eveyone who thinks Arsene Wenger is closely looking at Rolando Bianchi from Reggina your mistaken. He is a definite smoke screen for what the Gunners are really eyeing. Fiorentina duo, Montalivo and Pazzini. £18,000,000 for the pair is the word.
Bianchi is Sven's top target, not Arsene's.
Ujfalusi of Fiorentina is also a serious target of Arsenal with the seemingly inevatable departure of William Gallas, most likely to Juve. Ranieri would love to have the Frenchman back after he played under him at Chelsea.
The stumbling block with Fiorentina though is that they do not want hard cash for Ujfalusi, they would like Ljungberg as a straight swap. Now Wenger is no mug and he knows that yes his kids are talented and yes they will accompish a lot of success, but not without leadership. This is something that is lacking at the Emirates and Ljungberg leaving would be distructive, much like Henry and Vieira in recent years. So he may be forced to target others instead of the talented Czech.
Bakari Sagna is now a done deal and will sign this week. The big Frenchman is highly rated across Europe and has just won French Defender of the Year back home. Big, strong, quick. You can see he's a Wenger boy straight away.
Curtis Davies was another target but with W. B. A just making £11, 300,000 on two players (Kamara + Koumas) they will be in no hurry to sell there most prized asset.
One more thing I know is on the topic of Robinho. As I mentioned last time, AC. Milan are his main suitors, and have reportidly noe offered a sum in the region of 25,000,000 Euros. And after his blistering Copa America who can blame them? They see a potential Ronaldo Robinho partnership the only way of challenging Internazionale next season, and after getting beaten to the signing of Suazo by their arch enemies. there is no way their gunna let this one slip too.
Arsenal will let Freddie ljungberg go for a fee in the region of (4. 5– £6 million) this will leave the no 8 shirt vacant with 2 playes wanting it first is Kieron Dyer who Wenger feels has matured and curbed his ways ( going out getting smashed being in the tabloids every week) and has realised what a gift he has. He is an ideal Wenger player quick, can dribble, spot a pass and score from the wings.
The second player who could take the shirt is Shaun Wright–Phillips to continue his dad's legacy he has all the wright (get it) attributes to make it at Arsenal and time is on his side. Also expect Bakary Sagna from Auxerre to sign very soon and one more forward not a massivename signing but a big name signing. Thats all for now. M. E
Ipswich town will resign Ian Westlake as well as signing Richard Cresswell from Leeds if a fee can be agreed for Alan Lee to move
Man United will complete the signings of three more players. These will be Carlos Tevez for £24 million, M–G Pederson for £10 million and Young promising Norwich starlet Sam Underwood for a fee around £1 million, Sam will get a chance to prove himself in Man Uniteds first team if he does well in pre–season.
Chris Baird to sign for SAfc in next couple of days. Scholes more likely to come in the Jan transfer window due to lack of first team starts with the new blood in at MUFC. Third bid failed for Baines may go back with a name your price as it is clear he is high on Keano's shopping list.
Davenport loan with view to buy
Tibor Tisza (500 k)
Paul dixon 250 k
Chelsea youngster on loan thought to be Sinclair or bertrand,
josh gowling 50 percent true
and an un–disclosed lower league player
WE are not signing Dele Adebola, Robbie Fowler, Ben Sahar
from a temp at Norwich
Now down to the facts:
Liverpool have made a bid for Ajax Left Midfielder/Striker Ryan Babel. The offer is for around 20 Million Euros which is around 13.5 million pounds. This is Ajax's asking price for the player, so they should accept the bid. The deal should be done by next Monday at the earliest.
Rafa has also made a bid for Ricardo Quaresma. He first made a bid for around 14 million, but Porto want at least £17 million. Rafa however has made a bid of 16 million, and with Athletico Madrid only willing to offer 15 million, this bid should be accepted. The signing of Quaresma will take longer than the Babel signing, but should be done by the end of July.
Rafa is also hunting for a centre back as Hyypia is going to leave the club. His main targets are Vincent Kompany and Gabriel Milito. He wants to sign Kompany, but HSV keep uping the price tag each time he asks how much the player is avalible for. He will sign a CB, whoever he is, by mid August.
Reds fans can also expect at least three new youth propects coming in to the club and rumours suggest that Rafa is interested in the following players:
OKaka ( Roma)
Millan ( Colo Colo)
Reneto Augusto ( Brazil)
John Bostock ( Crystal Palace)
Arsene knows Bakari Sagna will sign in the next 24hrs along with Obafemi Martins.The board will give Arsene Wenger what he wants and in return the Boss will sign a new 4yr deal.
Curtis Davies will be the next on the list?
Arsenal will also tie up deals for Cesar Villaluz and Patricio Araujo after the World u20's cup.
BUT the most exciting news is that during the Henry transfer Arsene Wenger has now got first option on Gio Dos Santos and talks will begin within the next week.
Everton will later this week unveil Juan Roman Riquelme as their big Summer signing. Also Baines has his heart set on a £6 million move but Moyes might struggle to raise the cash. 16 year old soutport born highly rated youngster Sean Loftus has signed on for Everton academy, Remeber the Name.
Do not normally post because I cannot claim 2 have reliable rumours except 4 Basingstoke town or aldershot. Just 2 say 2 the Arsenal fan that reckons they might get Nasri I am pretty sure Liverpool got first option on him with the Cisse sale 2 buy next Summer so I doubt hed go anywhere now although I admit it is possible. Also Babel is a quality player and whoever ends up with him will b grinning.
Man United Rumours
the players likely to leave:
if Tevez come then the forward department will be full ov players so we all expect Smithy to go with too many team are fighting for his service.
Richardson is also leaving with Sunderland, Sheffield, Manchester City, Everton interested.
Silvestre will also follow Smith and Richardson out of the club. and there is a lot of rumours that he will be off to any French club because he was not in Man United kit launching show.
Dong and Eagles will go out on loan to any Premier League or championship team.
the players unlikely to leave but linked with other clubs
as we all knows that Rossi is wanted by AC Milan, Parma and Fiorentina but he will stay because sir Alex rates Rossi very higly.
another young rising star who is linked with real Zaragoza is also staying because he is a replacement of rio.
Heinze will also stay because Tevez is coming to United and they both are close frds. so he will stay and help Tevez to settle in Manchester.
and this is only rumour that Scholes will leave for Sunderland. this is never going to happen because he loved United and he knows that how much sir Alex want him and how much sir Alex valued him. he will stay and will help Anderson to become a better player.
Saha was linked with Lyon in early may and there were so many football experts expecting that he will leave the club due to his injuries.

Moyes will spend again, this time he will pay
8.2 million to land definitely, he will also land former blue Michael ball on a free.Moyes has also been informed of a young kid at Vauxhall Motors named Michael coady, the youngster is known as the new '
Roberto Carlos' in the lower leagues.Moyes could offer him a two week trial.
Arsenal are going to sign Jo Muntinho for £7 million and started talking to Lyon for a deal for Fred in January, seeing as he is injured right now. If Wenger can t get Fred he will go for Hatem Ben Arfa or Karim Benzema of Lyon as well with a £12 million bid.
Looks like all the Saviola rumours were wrong, just read on sky sports news website, Bernd Schuster (new Real Madrid manager) has signed him. Would have been a good signing for any top four team (especially LFC).
As Keane has already said that their is 3 or more deals nearly finalised, I expect these to be the following:
Chris Baird–Southampton–£3 million
Kieran Richardson–Man United–£2.5 million
Marlon Harewood–the Hammers–£3 million
Others could be:
Mark Schwarzer/Craig Gordon–£2– £3 million
Leighton Baines–Wigan–£5– £6 million
Leroy Lita–Reading–£5 million
(maybe central midfielder)
Darren Fletcher–Man United–£4 million
Leicester City could sign 17–Year–Old midfielder Jamie Treadwell from Charlton Athletic.
Southend United and Walsall are the latest to admit interest in 16 Year Old Goalkeeper Shaun Wilkes.
Neil kilkenny could sign for Oldham on a season long loan
Arsenal have made a £5 million bid for Wolves star Michael Kightly. The rumour about Ashley Chambers £5 million move to Chelsea is true. Also Arsenal after Spanish hotshot Emilio Nsue for £1 million + add–ons. Sergio Ramos is a £12 million target for Aston Villa, and David Villa is a shock target for Manchester City.
Leicester will tomorrow (Wednesday) announce the signings of Stephen Clemence and DJ Campbell for a combined fee of £1.75 million along with the shock unveiling of Arsenal starlet Fran Merida on a season long loan having seen the tattooed Spaniard leave the Walkers Stadium.
Having captured the signings of Billy Sharp and Gary Naysmith, Sheff United look to be bringing in some decent players. United are looking at the following players:
Thomas Gravesen (£3 million from Celtic) as the midfield replacement for Jagielka.
Jean–Joel Perrier–Doumbe (Free from Rennes) This is looking likely as Strachen Reccomended him to robson as strachen believes that they will not be able to sign him as they are refusing to pay a fee that was written in to the loan agreement.
P. S Sheff United will not sign Shaun Derry as most of the fans hate him.
Arsenal will sign Sagna 4 £6 million and quresma 4 £9 million and
Hleb going the other way
Tottenham have joined the queue of clubs interested in FC Barcelona B youngsters Iago Falque, and Marc Crosas. They are also looking to find midfield cover and are interested in Real Zaragoza midfielder Zapater. Another name being looked at to fill the area on the left–side of midfield is Dutch Under– 21 star Royston Drenthe, who Jol is a great admirer of. Tottenham have also shown a great deal of interest in Mallorca's Serbian midfielder Bosko Jankovic, but it looks as if they may have missed out to Palermo.
Ryan Babel will sign from Ajax for £11.5 million this WednesdayfactTHE CAL MAN
The truth about babal is the Arsenal have already struck a deal with Ajax but he will remain on loan for next season. Reyes will move to Madrid with robinino going the other way + £10 million, Arsenal will also of load le moan aka william Gallas to Juve, Senderos will also be leaving for Italy with Roma said to be the lead runners. this will pave the way for Richards £12 million and Davis £9 million to join the Gunners expect the Sagna deal to be anounced at around 6pm today he will sign for 5.8 million. all deals will be comleted in the two weeks before the emarites cup fact.
I love the Gunners but why Arsenal fans are making up stupid rumours is beyond me. Arsenal will not sign Villa, Eto'o, Adriano or any other player that would cost us over £20 million quid. We simply do not have the money and we know Arsene Wenger does not buy hyped up, over valued nothings like Fernando Torres. Get a grip Liverpool fans he hardly scores a goal in Spain so he will score even less in England. Arsenal will sign Sagna and maybe another couple of talents, a winger and defender. I do not claim to know this for a fact as I do not work on a burger stand outside the Emirates stadium, I am just speculating.
Expect Gobby Gallas to join his fave manager (and the man who gave him his chance at Chelsea) Ranieri at Juve the move is on and should be sorted by the end of this week
Arsenal will definitely not be signing Ricardo Quaresma or Ryan Babel as they are signing for Liverpool
Due to Rangers lack of parting with the cash Celtic will yet again step in and sign another Rangers target in Stephen Naismith Celtic have offered £1 million up front then another £1 million depending on appearances and other add ons. This means that Derek Riordan is on his way out of Parkhead with an English Championship side his destination thought to be in the region of £1.5 million. Celtic are still stepping up their efforts to try and sign Stephen Appiah from Fenerbache and if this goes through expect Paul Hartley to be moved on.
Hail Hail. the treble here we come
Liverpool set to splash further cash on Baines, Ferdinand, Simao, Benayoun and some youngsters.
Liverpool could sign 6 foot 6 target man Ben Peers from the Ryman League. They have been watching him for months. My Dad is the scout watching him.
My sources tel me that Paul Konchesky is on the verge of joining Real Madrid with Casilias heading 2 Crewe
Leicester set to sign Kevin Lisbie THIS WEEK he has been training with the lads all week. Trust me I work at the ticket office.
ALSO: Wenger will leave Arsenal for Real Madrid next week, contract already signed. Arsene Wenger will take Cesc Fabregas with him for a reported £26 million. This could mean the Reyes deal is off.
FINALLY: Salisbury forward Matt Tubbs is not going to join NUfc you person, he's off to Coventry having rejected LCFC.
Baba is to stay at Newcastle next season but Sam will go for Philipp Lahm of Munich, Bridge was always the first choice or but Terry rates him very highly and will push Cashly for his place. He will follow up with a squad LB to push Lahm. Another is Klaas Jan Huntelaar up front as Shola will be classed out of the team. Papaers say he has two games, many say he's had two too many.
FC Barcelona are trying to out Deco and replace him with Lampard. This comes from Lampard Seniors neighbour in Gidea Park.
Leicester City could sign 16 year old Goalkepper Shaun Wilkes from MK Dons. This has alerted other clubs such as Colchester and Ipswich Town.
Norwich will sign Gary Haddon and andrew hall on permanent deals after impressing in the reservs. also they will sign adebola, tibor t, Davenport and ben Sahar on loan.
Ayr United set to sign young forward Daniel Keysell on a free transfer, who has been tipped for big things after impressing on trials throughout the country.
I are not wrote anything on this site for a while but I just got to afta some of the lies you people call rummours and I have some real ones myself.
1ST to person Manchester City supporter: "Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Adriano, Ryan Giggs, Sol Campbell, Vincent Kompany are all set to join after secret negotiations. first." you talk rubbish I would bet my house and all the money I have this wldn happen in a millon yrs, campbell dsnt like erikson, Adriano wld not leave unless champ lge ftie and the fact you pt Giggs and van nistelroy just proves you are a person.
Also the other City supporter who wrote Sven to offer £3 million + Sinclair for hobbs and riise.
"knno yer footie" Sinclair given free hobbs rated highly and riise worth £8 million to £10 million
And finally to what I know, the Hammers will not be sent down due to any supposed evidence from kia joribachian. egg reported the Tevez deal when he took other and as you have seen the Hammers and the new board were found clean of any wrong doing. I do not doubt Tevez the legend will leave but if we cannot get the money we will simply realese him from his contract to avoid problems with FA and Uefa and Fifa.
also Bellamy, wright. 2 worst signings since Marc boogers.
the Hammers 4 life
"Preston's Kelvin Wilson will be going to Nottingham Forest for an undisclosed fee with Forests highly rated versatile Defender James Perch going the other way"
Why? Forest were rumoured to have offered 200,000 for Wilson. Perch is worth at the very least twice that. If any money is going in any direction in that deal it would be to Forest not from Forest.
A bit of common sense, please.
"Sven to offer Liverpool £3 million + trevor Sinclair in exchange for jon arne Riise and Jack hobbs"
Please wake up before posting in future.
Anyway, looks like Rafa will pay a some what steep £13.5 million for Babel but should prove to be a great bit of business. Any other rumours are just that for now, the only real possibility is a back up DC.
Robbie savage Real Madrid.
Claus Jensen Everton.
Michael Owen Colchester United.
Richard dunne Man United.
glen Johnson AC Milan.
Arsenal interested in Reggiana forward Bianchi, Reggiana need to sell to balance books, Man City and Portsmouth also interested,
Fiorentina supposedly in advanced talks with Freddie Ljungberg about possible transfer
With Conelley now on loan at Colchester, will Wenger sell Senderos or loan Djourou without buying replacement? (just thinking of African Nations Cup in mind), heard from quite a reliable source who works within the club that Micah Richards has stalled on signing a new contract with Manchester City to see if Arsenal (his boyhood club) are serious about making an offer for him
That is all. for now
Liverpool rumoured players:
Quaresma: LFC bid 13.5 million and were rejected as Porto had him valued at £14 million. LFC then revised their bid to high– £14 million but were told Porto revalued Quaresma to £20 million. Exciting player but if the revaluation is correct, may be too high.
Babel: LFC bid for £7 million rising to £10 million through performance payments. No official decision by Ajax released but I read a non–rumour article that Babel is due in tomorrow for a medical. I find this a little hard to believe because of the time these things normally take. Nice surprise for LFC fans if this gets finalised.
Mancini: LFC bid £12 million but were rejected. Roma has him valued at 15– £16 million but the player apparently wanted the price lowered and Roma not budging. Doesn't look like happening.
Simao: Valued at 12– £14 million by Benfica. No bid by LFC. A bit overrated; did not do much during the World Cup and we seem to be the only team interested in him.
Benayoun: LFC have apparently made a final bid of £5 million but the Hammers want £6 million. Still cannot work out how we sold Garcia for £3 million and would spend £5 million on a squad player, even though Yossi is a good player.
G. Milito: Has agreed personal terms with Barcelona; just finalising transfer with Zaragosa.
Kompany: No official bid but would be a nice signing if we could get him for £6 million.
Heinze: Bid £6 million but Mancs do not want to sell to us. Latest news has Newcastle set to bid for him.
As a side note, I watched the U– 20 World Cup match between Brazil and US which the US won 2– 1. Pato and Renato look quality but I could not believe how good Adu from the US is. I do not know who his preferred team is, but the big name team that signs him up will be happy. Also, Nasri from Marseille will be chased by every Rich club in a season or two.
Keep up the news and rumours peoples. Interesting stuff and even the outrageous ones are amusing.
Liverpool SQUAD 2007–08
GK: Reina Carson
LB: Aurelio Riise
RB: Finnan Alves
CB: Carragher Agger Hyypia Kompany
CM: Gerrard Alonso mashcherano Sissoko leiva
LM: Babel, Kewell
RM: Quaresma, Penant
ST: Kuyt Torres Crouch Voronin
Heinze to sign for the Newcastle next week, big Sam likely to sign another centre back Maby hypia but Maby someone a little younger. Haway the toon.
These are facts not rumours:
Rafa get his two wingers before the end of this week in the form of Ricardo Quaresma and Ryan Babel.
As with the Torres fee expect it to be exAggerated in the press. This makes it sound better for both clubs.
Yossi Benayoun's price tag is ridiculously high so expect no further dealings with the Hammers.
also Gabriel Palleta will be shipped out on loan so expect a signing to cover for the centre back position.
FC Barcelona will will make a shock bid of 35 million pounds for Wayne Rooney. Man United will only talk if FC Barcelona offer 38 million pounds. Rumours from FC Barcelona FC say Rooney wants to test himself in the European leagues;especially Spain.
God there are some persons on this site.
To the bloke who said Liverpool will sign BARRAGAN.
Liverpool sold him to Depor. last season for £680 k.
However, Liverpool reserved the right to buy Barragan back if they wished after 2 or three years for £475,000.
Man United Rumours
Leaving will be:
Richardson £3 million any of the clubs in Uefa or below
Smith £7 million Everton
Silvestre £3 million as Pique is replacing him. Lille or Lyon is possible destination
Nani done given number 17
Tevez loan deal, with option to buy, detaikls confirmed, Premiership are delaying it.
As Hargreaves is yet to be given his number, I thin k that this is suggesting that Scholes may be leaving. He has always said that he wants to play at Oldham, and if he does leave, that will be his destination. However I still believe he has one season left in him at United, with Giggs having potentially 2 depending on how this season goes. Giggs will retire after his United career and will not play for another team
Man United: VAN NISTELROOY, BENTLEY, NANI, ANDERSON, HARGREAVES, GAMST–PEDERSON
Chelsea: MALOUDA, RICHARDS, PHILLSKIRK, SIDEWELL, PIZZARO
Not a big mouth watering signing but this lad has talent. Liverpool set to sign Jamie day from the posh for £500,000.
"My Dad works at Manchester City and he confirmed that Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Adriano, Ryan Giggs, Sol Campbell, Vincent Kompany are all set to join after secret negotiations. first."
lets all laugh at this fool.
Papers say Manchester City have £50 million, so Nistelrooy at least £25 million and why leave one of the best teams in Europe for a bottom half Premier League club.
Adriano at least £17 million and why leave one of the best teams in Europe for a bottom half Premier League club.
Ryan Giggs at least £2 million as he is still a class act and after the years at Man United where he is an idol does anyone REALLY think he would go to City. Never. fact
Sol Campbell £half a million + easy still a good footballer and why go to a club that is bottom half material from a club that is fighting to get into Europe.
Vincent Kompany £12 million + he has only relitavely recently changed clubs and would be able to join up with most squads in the Premier League if not Europe and as I have already stated why join a bottom half club? He could go to Tottenham, Liverpool or Arsenal tomorrow and play Champions League or UEFA Cup football.
So out of Manchester City's £50 million you have spent nearly £57 million and that is only on a few players not the seven or eight Sven wants.
Please stop posting wish lists this is a Rumors site.
Now for the rumors Fabregas will join FC Barcelona next Summer along with Lampard. I cannot see Fabregas joining Real Madrid as he is a FC Barcelona boy. Maybe Lampard will join Real Madrid and get a big contract as Chelsea's purse strings have been clipped.
Robben will join Real Madrid fact
Jose will take over as Real M
To all you Arsenal fans who keep saying Arsenal will sign Robinho, keep dreaming. real are close to wrapping up a deal to take Reyes permanently and are also lining up a bid for cesc. but I can guarantee Robinho will not be part of any of this, especially after his brilliant form at the Copa America.
Firstly to the person who said Manchester City will sign Adriano and ruud van nistelrooy I doubt they will sign either.
Liverpool will not sign Babel or Quaresma (yet)
Arsenal will sign either Babel Owen or Trezeguet but may be forced to do so in January.
Someone wrote " If that deal does not go through Liverpool will sign Barragan frem Deportivo who is a young Spanish right back poised fer big things. " Will that be the same Antonio Barragan, who Liverpool signed three years ago, then sold to Deportivo one year later for £1.7 million and have the option to repurchase next Summer. Yeah, I think it is.
Firstly lets correct a few things.
1. Chelsea do not want Richardson. why would they?
2. Bojan Krkic is not going anywhere as he is now 17 and is expected to make progress with occassional outings with the FC Barcelona first team. As someone else said he is rated up there with Messi.
3. Sven has not offered £3 million + Trevor Sinclair for Riise and Jack Hobbs because (a) Riise alone is worth a lot more than that and (b) Trevor Sinclair has been released so is no longer a Manchester City player.
4. Non league players will not cost mills.
5. Bojinov or any other quality player will not go to the SPL. The Bosko Balaban rumour is more their level.
Newcastle United will sign a defender in the next 48 hours. Sam Allardyce has been making phone calls to this player the whole time they were in Austria and Yesterday he rushed away in an attempt to sign him. Expect a press conference on Wednesday or Thursday to Announce the signing.
To the guy who sed
"16 year old Jake Tipping 2 sign for Arsenal in the next few days he is the next thierry Henry and he has scored 36 goals in 32 games this season for Shrewsbury he will win the Premier League 4 Arsenal and beat Ronaldo and Drogba for the golden boot"
Firstly you are blatantly talking about Arsenal buying him, you problem just saw him one game, saw his stats (if they are true) and linked him with a big team. Secondly he is 16 years old and so would not start for Arsenal for another year AT LEAST. Thirdly you cannot call someone the next Thierry Henry especially when they are 16 years old. Next he plays for Shrewsbury (i have looked at the Shrewsbury site and have not even seen his name so he are not in the first team) who are many leagues below the Premier League, so he would not be able to score many goals against the best defenders in the world. AND one player dosen't win the league, it takes a team. So stop being a bloody person and sending in these stupid rumours.
I have noticed how Liverpool fans are forgetting that Lucas Leiva cost £6 million and various other young additions probably amount to £2– £3 million. So add £9 million to your calculations.
Torres £21 million
Lucas £6 million
Others £3 million
Garcia £3 million
Cisse £7. 5
Bellamy £7. 9
Total £18. 4
Thats £11.6 million spent but with a kitty of around £40 million Rafa can afford Quaresma, Babel and that why he's haggling over the price for Yossi
I was around el Nou Camp yesterday with mI amigo pablo and I see Leeds forward tresor kandol with boss Frank Rijkaard. kandol was big hit last season at Leeds with uno goal in half el season and will move for around £14 million, with boss planning to partner him with Henry.
Ashley Cole going to Real Madrid.
There is a need since Carlos left and another gap since Posh departed for LA.
Chezzer aims to glam up in Madrid like Posh used to.
Madrid wanted Cole when he was at Arsenal, expect a deal in a couple of weeks.
Arsenal are working hard to get a work permit for Carlos Vela and are also trying to attract his Mexican U20 team mate Dos Santos. They can talk to Dos Santos as part of an agreement on the Henry deal.
Interest in Babel is to mask real interest in Huntelaar.
Peter Grant is looking to return to his old stomping ground of Bournemouth to snap up central defender Josh Gowling. The fee is around the £750K mark.
So will it Nugent, Defoe or Smith heading to Goodison? Will Beattie be leaving? If so, what isthe idea of him retaining the number 9? I guess the Number 10 shirt will be for one of the new guys. How about Number 3? Baines sound good. Anyone got any confirmation or updates on possible new signings? I am sure we will have quite a bit to spend, do not we
Rafa has extra funds from Gillet and Hicks as well as Champions League money. As usual he has been prudent with sales and minimising expenditure. However, he is about to sign Babel in additin to Torres and will go for Quaresma or Benyoum. The other younger players as well as the experienced Voronin will add strength in depth. Am I losing my mind or did somebody here suggest we sign a young right back called Baragan from Deportivo? I thought we sold him to them after a poor season in our squad. Is it Antonio Baragan that was referred to or is it a different player? I do not see the Reds winning the PL this year but will have a bet on the Champions League again. MUFC look to have strengthened significantly but we will be very close. It is within our grasp. Keep faith in Rafa.
Arsenal will be signing obafemi Martins within the next week, if this ends up being one of Wengers last signing I will be very disapointed, they need to use some trades like Flamini + Senderos for Villa and £10 million an or Robinho for Reyes and £5 million losing these players will help strengthen the squad, Wenger has also signed Angel Di Maria who playes for agentina under 20s, also I hope Wenger will go for Babel soon coz Liverpool having him is not good, + why the hell does other teams steal Arsenal's signings, just coz they cannot find it for themselves
Leicester will sign 18 year old irish under 21 international Anthony o'reilly and 17 year old defender Daniel cooper in the upcoming weeks. They will also sign 17 year old Toby Smith but due to an unfortunate knee injury that cannot be completed just yet.
Anelka will sign for Arsenal Tuesday.
Press Conf. 16. 00 Wed
An interesting rumour, especially seeing as Anelka landed in Korea at about 3am Tuesday morning and publicly stated he would be happy to stay at Bolton this season until such time came as they could not qualify for the Champs League.
Why do people make stuff up?
One true rumour Bolton set to sign me. I have not been to the toilet for three days so I am really solid at the back.
After the success of Keane, Robinson and Lennon in recent years following bargain deals, my source at WHL tells me Tottenham are preparing a cut–price move for Leeds United. It's thought Tottenham are willing to pay £1.5 million upfront for the Elland Road club, with further money depending on appearances, and will gradually introduce Leeds to the first team over the next season, possibly allowing them to remain in League One on loan. "Leeds are a bit older than most of our signings, but we believe they have long–term potential, and it is also quite handy they wear the white and blue as their ground fits in with our colour scheme", my insider revealed.
Bojan will not go to Arsenal.
Think about it. He is a young Spanish kid with a bright future already playing for one of the most prestigious clubs in Europe. Why move away from friends and family to live in London.
Martin Jol is a fool. He needs to strengthen midfield. If he had used the £16 million from Bent he could have bought Sneijder/Parker/Moutinho/Diarra or anyone else in central midfield for around £8 million. And he could have bought a quality left winger like Ryan Babel or Guti or anyone else.
Tottenham team would be:
Chimbonda Kaboul/Dawson King Bale
Lennon Jenas Sneijder/Moutinho etc. Babel/Guti
As a result of Bent, expect Defoe to leave with Mido, or possibly Berbatov to Man United.
Bristol City could sign Tottenham HotTottenham Billy Wingrove on loan for the season, with the view to a permanent deal.
Ok firstly, Scholes and Giggs are not going anywhere. Giggs is determined to break Bobby Charlton's record of games for ManUnited which he will probably do in the next two years. Scholes is going to stay as well and train Anderson for the Attacking Midfielder role. The Tevez deal seems to be tied up. Rossi is not going to be sold but will be kept for the less important matches or go on loan again. Expect either Saha/Smith to leave to Lyon/Everton and Richardson to Sunderland or Everton again while Silvestre will move to Lyon. Heinze is going to stay and fight for his place as well as Wes Brown who was on the verge of signing for Newcastle for 320 million. Chris Eagles and Dong will also be either loaned out or sold to Championship teams. –= MuFcDeviL= –
To the person who said Sven will offer Sinclair for John Arne, why would Liverpool accept when he's been Sinclair has been talking to the like of Stoke? Liverpool are after class not players who are past it.
Liverpool are far from done in this seasons transfer market. Benitez sold Cisse for £8 million, Bellamy for 7. 5 and Garcia for 3. 5. This, together with the upcoming sale of Gonzalez to Betis for 2.5 million, means Liverpool have re–couped all of there money after signing Torres for 18– 21 million, depending on which source you believe. Considering Liverpool, on average, have a net spending of £20 million each Summer then it shows we have at least another £25 million to spend since we have been taken over.
Firstly Rafa will pursue two wingers, one for each side. The deal for Ryan Babel is very close to completion for a fee around £11 million. This came at a time when Arsenal were very close to striking a deal with the player. Babel will mostly be used as the left winger, but will also fill in on the right and as the fifth forward now Bellamy has departed.
After tying up this move, Rafa will concentrate on Quaresma. Having a bid of £11 million already rejected, it'll be raised to around £14 million and Liverpool will have there man. He will mostly be used on the right side, but due to the versatility of him and Babel they will continue to rotate throughout a match.
Now the top class wingers are in place, Rafa will concetrate on more low profile, less likely signings. Firstly Benayoun. If the fee can be kept below £5 million he will be used as Garcia's replacement. However we have many players who can play this role. Finally a centre back is needed for cover. A move is yet to made for anyone, but Kompany, Kaladze and Heinze are seemingly the top targets. If this occurs then Paletta will be loaned to Levante.
– Reina –
Finnan Carragher Agger Riise
– Mascherano Gerrard Alonso
Quaresma – Babel
– Torres –
To the person who said Prutton/Clapham to Everton is mistaken. They are actually going to Birmingham for £1.5 million per. Also Portsmouth to sign an unknown forward from Ghana, keep your eyes open for him.
Leaving top 4
fabrigas FC Barcelona uncertian future
Gallas lyon? now he regrets not staying at Chelsea, so he will go back home and with a club that will atleast have a chance of winning the league
kolo Toure FC Barcelona to join his brother
Sheva will problem stay, might do what Drogba did, he was bad in his first season but then he showed us all what he can do.
Lampard Real Madrid, inter, FC Barcelona I am not convinced he will sign a new contract
bridge newcaste? will leave if they get anymore defenders in
johnson Portsmouth loan again? he said he liked it there, and if they get a right back he will surely not get in first team
bellemy the Hammerse done deal
Dudek byern munich
pennent Bolton, Portsmouth, villa, Everton a team like that to get first team
Harry Kewell Bolton, Portsmouth, villa, Everton a team like that to get first team, only if Babel comes in
Richardson Bolton, Portsmouth, villa, Everton, Newcastle, Sunderland, Manchester City a team like that to get first team
allen Smith Bolton, Portsmouth, villa, Everton, Newcastle, Sunderland, Manchester City a team like that to get first team
Luis Saha problem a French team, however, I do not know why, but I could see him going to Portsmouth, that is the first you heard
Tomasz Kuszczak problem go on load to a team that may of just came up or a championship team
silvestra I heard he might be going to Newcastle for around 380 million, but I do not think that will happen, just kiddin, I think he will go to France or maybe even newcaste for around £2 million.
for more information got to smithy–
Why on earth would Bojan Krkic leave FC Barcelona? His mother is of Catalan descent and his father has been a scout at FCB since 1997. Also, if you were a young forward would you want to learn from Messi, Ronaldinho, Henry and Eto'o or Adebayor and Van Persie? No brainer.
Firstly Roy Keane has confirmed today that he will not be signing Paul Scholes.
He did say however that there are 3 people discussing personal terms + other deals still on the cards.
Kevin Doyle signing a new contract means nothing exept a higher buying price, and Sunderland is now and always has been a much bigger club than Reading. one season in the top flight in thier whole existance is hardly impressive.
Sunderland Finally have the finacial backing to match the World class facilities and fanbase that will see them flourish nto a top 6 side.
Liverpool FC rumours: In: Ryan Babel £13 million pounds, Ricardo Quaresma £17 million pounds, Daniel Alves £20 million pounds. Lineup this season: Reina/Carson, Alves/Finnan, Carra/Arbeloa, Agger/Hyypia, Riise/Aurelio, Gerrard/Pennant, Mascherano/Leiva, Alonso/Leiva, Quaresma/Kewell, Torres/Kuyt/Crouch/Voronin/Babel. Now that'll win you a Premier League. + MB+
