Forest will be signing Ross McCormack on a Free Transfer from Motherwell and also on the list is Barry Nicholson. Nigel Doughty is willing to back Calderwood with transfer money because they want to reach the Premiership within a 3 Year Plan. Except some good signings and money being spent.
If you are going to put rumours on this site then make sure you have the facts as Torres was the highest forward goal scorer in England this season with 33 goals in all comps.
1) Ronaldinho has been given permission to talk to a Premiership club who has come to terms with Barcelona. No it's not Man United or Chelsea. It's Manchester City.
I how ever doubt they will agree on a contract.
2) Newcastle has put a bid in to bring Swedish international and Birminham star Sebastian Larsson to the toon. It's a good sized club for Larsson but I think he will wait to see the outcome of the EURO champs first.
These two news are all over the newspapers and on the telli in Sweden at the moment. Can't promise they are true tho.
I have this from a very reliable source, that Stoke could bid £7 million for Russian starlet Andrei Arshavin. This deal should be completed after the European Chamionships. This shows Stoke's intent on a UEFA Cup finish next year. They are also interested in taking Valeri Bojinov and Gelson Fernandes from Manchester City as Mark Hughes deems them surplus to requirements. These are all from a very reliable source.
I have heard speculation over the future of Jason Koumas. He does not feel happy at Wigan. The lancashire club wants him to stay but he is interested in a move to Sheff United. Sheff United are going to put a bid in of £4.5 mill
Ronaldo is going to Real. Done deal behing closed doors. He is moving for £66 million. After the Euros he will be boarding a plane to Spain.
The blinkered Newcastle fans who think Keane would even consider making any sort of move for Duff. come on try living in the real world he will be released on a free transfer and will problem end up at Wolves.
evans and simpson to sign for £8.7 mill
whitehead to leave Bolton very interested.
in the know looking after Keanes dog
Liverpool will sign Nasri for £12.5 million and risse. Crouch will leave for £12.5 million to cover the prices of Nasri. Alonso will leave for £7 million + Robinho who will not be happy when Ronaldo comes. then Liverpool will sign dossenia with the £7 million that we got fron Alonso deal. barry will come to Anfield for £7 million + Carson we will then sign Ribery for £30 million. Finnan £4 million vorraninn £2 million le latlic 3 millio benuyoun £7 million Pennant £10 million will be sold. to make money for the Ribery barry deals. with £19 million in kitty left from what hicks and gillett gave to Rafa
a forward will be bought for 20 mill
with Rafa looking at these
1. agureo tops Rafa list with
2. Ronaldinho in second
3. Villa third
the con–con in the know.
Celtic will only sign three players this Summer. Celtic do not want Kyle Lafferty or Steven Fletcher as Gordon wants a classier forward for the Champions League and is willing to pay up to £5 million for Alexander Frei of Dortmund. He will also look for a highly experienced centre half, possibly Dario Simic or Da Silva of Toluca. In midfield a playmaker is essential for the Champions League and after being priced out of a move for Tymoschuk Strachan will go for Jerko Leko and Fabio Liverani of Fiorentina who impressed against Rangers.
Liverpool Football Club
Rafa wants to make eight signings this Summer
Taylor of Birmingham is favourate to sign although Harper (very unlikely) and Rame have also been meantioned.
Degen has already signed to challenge Arbeloa
Dossena will sign for £7 million from Udinese
Barry will sign from Villa for £15 million. Villa want Crouch but he wants to go to Portsmouth. The only other player they would want is Carson valued at now £6 million
Barry and Mascherano will be first choise in a 4–2–3–1 formation. Lucas and one other will act as cover. Rafa wants Johnson from City. Johnson is asking for 50 k–a–week which City feel is too high for someone of his age. Johnson could cost anything up to £10 million
Bentley from Blackburn for £12 million–15 million. Bentley wants European football, and would take Champions league over UEFA cup (who would not? ). Bentley is from Peterborough so all this he wants to go back to London is rubbish (Tottenham fans)
Reira was Rafa's top targtet but felt he was over priced by Espanyol. Rafa will instead sign Milner from Newcastle as cover for Babal. He will cost between £7 million–9 million. Pennant could be used in this deal as Keegan is a fan of his.
Jones from Sunderland was a target but Keane will not sell. Morero from Cruzio could still be an option as could D. Milito. The word is Rafa could go for St. Ettiene's young starlet Gomis. St. Ettiene want £17 million but could go for around £10 million–11 million as long as he has a quiet EURO's.
Dossena £7 million
Barry £15 million
Johnson £10 million
Bentley £12 million
Milner £7 million
Gomis £11 million
Total: 62 million
Carson £6 million villa
Itandje £2 million Pompy or Rennes
Finnin £3 million S'land, Blackburn, City
Riise £5 million Roma
Alonso £16 million Juve
Pennant £5 million Blackburn or Newcastle
Leto £2 million Espanyol
Voronin Free (get off wage bill)
Crouch £10 million Portsmouth
Total: 49 million
Arsenal have a total of £50 million to spend this Summer. After a long time Arsenla will make a loss in the transfer window of –£35 mill
Shay Given (NEWCASTLE UNITED) £3.4 mill
Samir Nasri (O. MARSEILLE) £12.2 mill
David Villa (VALENCIA) £17.5 mill
Clement Chantome (PSG) £3 mill
Dositej Anastasijevic (FC MALMO) FREE
Cristian Zapata (UDINESE) £13 mill
Jens Lehmann (STUTTGART) FREE
Aliaksandr Hleb (BARCELONA) £13.5 mill
Mark Randall (STOKE CITY) LOAN
Keiran Gibbs (DERBY) LOAN
Fran Merida (HULL) LOAN
Nicklas Bendtner (W. B. A) LOAN
Carlos Vela and Reserve team captain Harvard Nordviet will be in the first team next season. Shay Given will be the new number number 1. Villa will start upfront with Adebayor and expect the midfield to be strong with Fabregas, Nasri and Rosicky and either Walcott or Van Persie to play on the left wing.
Defence will be kept the same but you will see Zapata feature a lot as cover for Sagna or for any of the centre backs.
I am privy to certain info from a few friends in the football agent game and have been told to expect no transfers until after euro 2008 but the following are 99. 9 percent certain to happen within a week of the tournament finishing.
Christiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid (Robinho and 60 million)
Kaka to Man United (50 million)
Santa Cruz to Man United (22 million)
Ronaldhino to Chelsea not Manchester City (30 million)
Phillip Lahm to Chelsea (18 million)
Now the Newcastle transfers:
Crouch 10 mill
Shaun Wright–Phillips – 12 mill
Arda Turan – 10 mill
Michael Dawson – 4 mill
Giles Barnes – 4 mill
plus a hand full of kids spotted by Dennis Wise.
Duff to Sunderland 4 mill
Shay Given to Arsenal 4 mill
Cacapa to Paris St. Germain 1 mill
Rozendahl to Marseille 3 mill
Barton to have his contract terminated but with his playing licence held in case another club thinks of buying him.
Owen to sign a new three year deal worth 80 k per week + 20 k per game appearance bonus.
Just wait and see.
To the guy who thinks that because Newcastle play in front of 50,000 people that that means they are better than Tottenham and Everton, then wake up to the truth. Newcastle has become the laughing stock of English football. However, Ashley wants to end this image and has become aware that good housekeeping is vital if the Newcastle are to retain Premiership status. Thus, Newcastle are not spending money anymore. The club has to reduce wages and gone are the days when every reject wanting a big contract could turn up at St. James' and get 60–100 k a week. You will not be signing any stars, not least because nobody actually wants to live in the Newcastle area as it is one of the dullest and least cosmopolitan cities in the UK. Anyway, this might be of interest to you. Hull have made a bid of £3.5 million for Smith and they also hope to take Barton at a cut price £2 million. Owen will not be leaving the Newcastle because no club is willing to pay him the absurd amount that you guys pay. He will run his contract down and probably sign for Portsmouth or the Hammers next year. I also heard a whisper that you guys are interested in the American midfielder, Michael Bradley, and have, or are about to, table a bid amounting to about £4 million. That is all the gossip I have, none of which makes me think things will change for the better at St. James'.
NCfc STUFF: for the person who said Cureton is off 2 Bristol Rovers it is rubbish we only have two forwards at the minute. we are not getting K. gorks as he is off to Queens Park Rangers. we definitely getting hoolahan in two weeks after he gets back from his holiday.
Chelsea to sign a winger who can play on the left either Quaresma or Ribery.
Moutinho to sign if Lampard leaves for Inter.
Villa or Silva will not sign for Liverpool as they prefer to stay in Spain with Real Madrid their most likely destination.
From a reliable source in Brazil expect a samba revolution at Upton Park.
Due the arrival of Kia Jarachoobian in the the Hammers scouting staff they will sign three off the biggest talents of Brazil.
Midfielders Renato Augusto (Flamengo), Guilherme (Cruzeiro) and Lulinha (Corithians, and dubbed the new Ronaldinho) are all lined up to sign.
Andrei Arshavin to the Hammers. £10 mill
Quaresma will sign for Real Madrid as Ronaldo will be staying put (with a nice pay rise)
you heard it here first
Drogba will be heading to Inter
Well for all those Newcastle fans claiming Mikel Arteta is on his way to the geordies need to return to planet earth as why would one of the most highly rated players in the Premier League choose to go and player for a lower half of the table team: S Newcastle will however sign Matthew Etthrington from the Hammers and Andy Johnson from Everton. Expect to also see one or two top quality midfielders to sign in a hope to challenge the big four ( Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Man U) It is however true that Liverpool are interested in shay given as back up for Reina.
cummon you geordies: )
The mighty Tottenham have won the race for Miguel Veloso, he will form the new midfield alongside Diego Capel who will soon the the best left winger in the world. Tottenham's new GInola. Veloso will cost £17,000,000 while Capel costs £12, 250,000.
Tottenham boss Ramos is already having doubts over Luka Modric following his poor display in the Euro's and may sell without him having played in a Tottenham shirt.
Joaquin from Valencia, it's almost a done deal, the fee is agreed and so are his terms it's all down to a medical which will be taken after the euros.
Arshavin from Zenit st Petersburg, another done deal and has been for a while so there is no point posting that he is going Tottenham or Manchester City as that is false.
Ramsey from Cardiff, the fee is agreed it's all down to the player but it's just a straight two horse race between Everton and Man United.
Also expect to see a few little signings here and there but nothing else that is major.
Also if you go on Arteta's own website he clearly states that he will be at Everton for the rest of his career, unless Athletico Madrid make an offer during the latter stages of his career.
from a very reliable source in and around Goodison park
mike Ashley lost Mills on the stock market that is why we will struggle to buy players because he will not pay big wages
troisi will all go
Manchester City likely to be the biggest spenders this Summer, with the aim of signing up top players to make the team more marketable. They will make audacious bids for players as following.
Sergio Aguero (21 million from Atletico Madrid)
Ronaldinho (13 million + 150 k a week from Barcelona)
David Bentley (14 million from Blackburn)
Pablo Zabaleta (9 million from Espanyol)
Rafinha (8 million from Schalke)
Jo (18 million from CSKA Moscow)
Joao Moutinho (16 million from Sporting Lisbon)
Thiago Silva (5 million from Fluminense)
I have just seen Roy Keane storming out of the Stadium of Light, looking extreemly angry, andten minutes later Niall Quinn and a whole load of other people stroll out not looking to happy. Something's going on and it is not good.
