Football Rumours Archive March 10 2009
Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Im related to a liverpool youth player and he thinks liverpool are looking to bring in 4 players in summer being a left back, two strikers and a winger
Stewart downing and Arron Lennon being the winger choices, Bale (dont no why hes rubbish) the 1st choice for the left back, Then names such as Klose, Villa (highly doubtful, Tevez and Drogba being the list.

When will fans realise that big money signings are a thing of the past. Realisticly, Man City and Man United are the only teams that will splash out. Most premier league teams are re–structuring their finances. Only expect hot young prospects to be bought by Chelsea,liverpool and the likes.
on a transfer note. . Dan fox and Scott Dann off Coventry to Newcastle. 5M PACKAGE
While liverpool have benitez in charge and there over reliance on gerrard and torres they will never win the league.that is not a rumour its a fact.
reading all the players that liverpool are linked with they need 2 flair players that give you width.
some south american that would be just a squad player
and henry from barca
In rafa with trust to mess up again
MAN UTD WE TRUST
Okay first off i should apologise cos this is going 2 b a bit of a rant, but you guys started talking about it so i thought id give my bitabout the 6+5. i personally find it really funny how revealing platinis comments are regarding his psyche. At the start of the galactico era at real madrid, when madrid were buying the best, most marketable players in the world and looked easily the best team around no one seemed to be bothered. Spain hadnt won anything for an age, but that wasnt mentioned and everything seemed as it was supposed to be in the football world. . . now things have evolved such that instead of real madrid, it is the BPL that looks like it might b making a break 4 pre–eminence, and after just one season with THREE of the last 4 in the champs league being english,(real madrid valencia,barcelona,bayern 1999–2000. real madrid, juventus, acmilan, inter 2002–2003) suddenly measures must b taken to stop the ruination of football! Anyone that cannot sense an anglophobic agenda there simply doesn't deserve an opinion. The difference is that the teams are English and the person proposing the handicap (because that's what this proposal has always integrally been) is an anglophile. Someone said we should watch platinis interviews in full rather than the murdoch spin we see now– i do and over the last few years he has said he hates the english style, hates the english fans, hates the english arrogance and hates the english press (we all do). In short he just hates the english. In my humble opinion, if u think this ia about saving our national team, ur an idiot, if u think this is about improving the game or players lives, ur an idiot. In short if u think this is anything other than a xenophobic inbred trying to scupper a nation that he clearly sees as his enemy, yes ur an idiot.
Anyway onto rumours apparently theres a rumour going round that i may have a teeny problem with platini, sorry! Liverpool 2 sign kuba,johnsson,barry. Man u benzema or tevez and city klose and ballack
Adebayor's future at Arsenal looks uncertain, after he failed to rule out a move to another club. It seems he is happy at Arsenal but would not give a straight no to another club, and with Barcelona and AC Milan set to come in for him once again, he could finally be tempted away in the summer. Whether or not anyone would be brought in to replace him or not I'm not sure, as if he did leave we would still have v.Persie, Eduardo, Bendtner and Vela as striking options, Eduardo looks more than capable of starting alongside v.Persie, speaking of which v.Persie has seemingly said he is not leaving Arsenal. I cannot see any of our players other than possibly (although hopefully not) Adebayor.
In Arsene We Trust

Some of the LFC rumours are deadly. If only half of them were true! We don't know who the owners will be, what the budget will be, even who the Manager will be so I don't know where the stories come from.
Wish I had some rumours but haven't, I just hope we move on Lucas, Babel & Dossena fairly sharpish.
Incredible source tells me and i am adamant this will happen
nesta will jump ship and head to inter!
other rumours are:
quaresma–spurs part exchange with dos santos
owen–any english club lol
jesus navas–athletico madrid
Sorry Buddy but you are missing the point of my comment. I don't care and the whole world doesn't sit around and complain about french football but it seems like Platini and everyone complains about English football and their league just because they have the best league in the world. The point is if you nit pick and every little thing then you will always find something wrong. Now with the langauge, Dont be disrepectfull justt because your sitting at your moms' house by yourself typing on your little computer.
rumours– Arsenal–Gourcuff,Sakho, Hazard
This just in!!!! Rafa to sell Agger, Lucas & Dossena.
Rafa beleives there is still enough quality in his squad and won't be splurging out on big money signings, only expect two or three new faces this summer, he will try to attempt Aaron Lennon from Spurs and Santa Cruz from Balckburn. Also to pursue his interest in Zaki of Wigan. Reliable Source
Rangers ins and outs in the summer
Mr Shane, thank you for humouring my morning by winding up the bluenoses and platini, really made me chuckle,
Now then, this is a "rumour" site so hears a rumour for you, I was working for the BBC in manchester last week and while I was there I got talking to a stage crew hand who's dad "apparently" works in the stock exchange, and according to him Dumb Hicks and Gormless Gillet are set to lower there asking price for LFC from 500m to 415m in order to sell to a middle eastern consortium, apparently they have until JUne the 30th to refinance the 280m loan from HBOS that they used to buy the club, if they don't the Bank will take over ownership and liquidate the club to get back its money, therefore H&G get NOTHING! However he also said that although the groups involved in buying the club (apparently there are three) will not be doing a Abramavich and splashing the cash, Rafa (if he isn't sacked)will have to sell before he buys, but one consortium has promised (if successfull) to bring in one big name signing and fund the stadium (name rights would be sold to help with this :–( ) however they have only offered a bid in the region of 380m so H&G would only get 190m each, oh how terrible for them! Anyhoooo that's what I heard so we shall wait and see. As I said only a rumour.
I am a rangers fan and believe that they are going to be the drivin force in scottish football 4 the next 5–6 seasons and there wul b a big clear out in summer. dnt be dilusioned that we are ment to be in so much debt that's the smoke screen there wul b some excitin players in and some big earners out. .

mcculloch – stoke (1 mil)

i personally like the look but we need 2 see wat will happen. .
. .just to clear up the confusion Celtic signed Marc Crosas on a permanent deal, though the deal allows Barcelona 1st refusal went the contract is up. so he's not on loan
Big Summer moves :–
Benzema 35 million to Inter
Villa 40 million to Barcelona
Silva 25 million to Barcelona
Tevez 30 million to Manchester United

Iniesta 15 million to Chelsea

First of all – enough about the 6+5 rule, its all getting very boring now. now back to the important stuff – Bristol Rovers are in talks with a 'significant' investor, sure it's not along the lines of Man City but i have been told by a reliable source that if it goes through with in 5 years the gas could be fighting for a top 4 finish with the big boys running scarred!
Hughes will be sacked as soon as season ends and in will come Frank Rijkard. He will be able to attract a better quality of player to Eastlands and play a more attractive style of football.
He will try to sign Alonso from Liverpool to run everything (much like Xavi for Barca), if he fails he will go for Barry instead. He will pick a front three of Robinho, Wright–Philips and Eto'o (£23 mill) with Alonso/Barry, De Jong and Ireland running the midfield. Samba (£4 mill) and Woodgate (£7 mill) will be signed to sure up the defence and Rafinha (£8 mill) will sign at right back. It will all be about pace and power and City will push the big four, or they will do a tottenham instead and disappoint!
This just in from a very reliable source. . .Liverpool to be taken over by the end of this month, 2 groups interested, the same source told me about Rick Parry leaving the day before it was announced by the club. . Watch this space, I tell no lies, this WILL happen. I have put £50 on it with the bookies. . .Bye and good riddance to the yanks.
Moyes will buy quality instead of quantity and his main aim of the summer is to get at least two quality players with a bit of creativity about them and a striker with a bit of pace and these are his targets
j cole 8m
d fletcher 4m
s parker 7m
d bent 7m
j utaka 5m
g oneil 3.5m
c cole 7.5m
Some sad attemts at wind–ups and FM style wheeler dealing on here lol.
Some real LFC rumours, that's rumours not facts i've picked up as a ' worker ' at the club.
The Kuwaiti's will buy Gillet out at a profit of 60m to Gillet. The club are looking at ideas to extend the capacity of the current ground by building a huge stand at the Anfield Rd end and are considering building over Anfield Rd by means of a road tunnel under the new stand, amazing ? Unlikely ? Yet feasible.
Benitez will stay and sign a compromise 2 year deal. He will be given a £50m lump sum plus outgoings.
Babel–10m with Buy back clause.
15m ' floating in accounts ' for Keane.
=42m + 50m = 92m
Hyypia will go into coaching at the club. these are rumoured to be players ' unwanted ' although Babel will be under bb clause if needed.
First choice ins =
Glen Johnson – 8m
Raul Albiol – 7m
Gareth Barry –10m
Aaron Lennon – 8m
Sergio Aguero – 25M
Michael Owen – free
Rangers were scouting Getafe v Malaga, primarily for Nabil Baha but would have also noticed Cuadrado the centre back as a potential target
Owen Coyle (Burnley Manager) has been sounded out about taking over from Gordon Strachan at Celtic in close season. .Iain the Know
