Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.



 
I just happen to be great friends with lfc's club doctor and i he told me that rafa has already organised the signing of two world class players who are going to sign right after the end of the season. I believe these players will be: David Silva and Gareth Barry. I also think that lucas will be sold because he wants first team football so he will play for brasil in world cup. Vorinin will be bought by a german club (dont know which one cos berlin are afraid they can't afford him), also nemeth will be promoted to the first team and also pacheco. Babel will be given one more chance to prove him self and rafa might play him as a striker instead of a winger. Kuyt will be a second choice striker/winger.If barry is signed he will be able to fill in the left wing position, holding midfielder role or the gerrard role as stevie might be injured more. Charles intanje, Phillip Degen and dossena will be leaving and a young keeper brought in and a right back (probably Glen Johnson) and Insua and Aurelio will compete for left back. Slight possibility that Aguero or Pato might come but this is less likely. And Spurs fans don't say that gareth barry is going to you cos he wants champions league football not the carling cup!!!!!
  Paul Sturrock is and he knows it hanging on by his finger tips at HP. The club is in crisis with non playing staff on redundency notices. The chairman wants out and did not bother to travel to some recent crucial games.
The playing system is disliked by most of the team and alienates 'footballers' in the squad. On top of this the scouting system has been a joke this year. The Japanese takeover will be crucial to the longterm stability of the club, but there is a sting in the tail on who are the 'real' owners, its not PAFC !
There could be as many as 10 want away players but after this season not many buyers

Ian Holloway must be smugly nodding somwhere

  Rafael Bnitez has recently found out that his budget this summer is 25mil + whatever amount he can raise from player sales.

He is actively looking to get rid of:

Andrea Dossena (5mil)
Andriy Voronin (3mil)
Sebastian Leto (4mil + buy back clause for 8mil)
Lucas Leiva (6mil + buy back clause of 9mil)
Philip Degen (3mil)

Coming in will be:

Gareth Barry (10mil)
Fernando Navarro (10mil)
Youann Gourcuff (16mil)

  Latest gossip from a source in milan––ronaldinho to meet city officials soon en a move 2 eastlands almost certain. . .another milan player who will surely be offloaded will be sheva ,,probably to ukraine. . pato is being closely observed by liverpool en a move looks certain for 15–20 mill,.
  Liverpool may well lose Xabi Alonso this summer but only for a price of at least 22mil. Anything lower than that will be rejected.
  With the league title now likely to being travelling to the South West of the city it is far from certain that Gordon Strachan will remain the supremo at Parkhead.In the event of his departure the smart money is on Owen Coyle to be brought in to replace him. This move is not dependent on an unsuccessful experience on the play offs, for the allure of Celtic is still strong enough to Coyle to make him forego a season's relegation battle in the EPL.

There would thereafter be mass departures through Parkhead's gates : Hartley, Nakamura , McManus , Hinkel , Naylor, Balde ( obviously ) Hesselink, Samaras, Caddis, Wilson, Mizuno , all going. Expect signings to be low key as Celtic quietly abandon any lingering pretence at true European ambition. Still some cheer to be had by likely targets : Eagles. R. McCormack , Alexander, K. McDonald, G. Boyd, and the promotion of McGinn, Ferry , Cuthbert, McCourt , and others from the reserves who could make for an enterprising side led by a skilled manager. A cup is real a possibility next year and the title could even be wrested back from a Rangers side who realistically still require radical surgery with the funds for the operation not there

Remember this post and me as the true People's Friend . .QTPFQR
  Carlos Tevez and Moutinho to sign for Everton.

You heard it here first.

JOEY
  Am the person who brought you the Man City in discusions with Millan and Kakka 1st as FACT. i have a relative at the club whos job it is to !! (well she got in trouble last time so can't say) and Harry Rednap got the blame.

Hughes wants 5 – 6 players depending on if he gets his 1st which is:

Lescott from Everton – City are looking to pay around 8 – 12 mill and may use Jo as a tool in this deal, wanting 2 – 4 mill from Everton, Lescott is landed then he will be used as a L/B and cover for the C/B if not then Hughes will not pursue another L/B instead changing his attention to:

Hangeland from Fulham – paying around 10 – 12 Mill
Hughes Wants Two midfield players a holding Midfielder and the main target being:

Veloso from Sporting – city will only pay up to 15 mill and if have to go higher or if he rejects us for another club will go all out for:

Yaya toura from Barca – their has been an offer on the table for 20 mill for a while now but they will go to 25 if Veloso don't act fast.
the 2nd Midfield player he wants is a creative midfielder and whilst most people think they are going back in for Kaka the meeting witch took place and has been wildly reported on was acutely about:

Ronaldinio from Milan – offering a cut price 12 Mill, but if personal terms can not be agreed with City offering nothing like the 180 k aweek that was on the table last summer then they will turn their attention back to Kaka who Milan say they are willing to listen to offers for.(City not happy that they was used as a PR stunt by Milan in January and have put several confidentiality clauses in place preventing all parties from discuss to the media untill he has signed for City or agreed a new contract at Millan, aparantley the clouse would cost whitch ever party breaks it over 3 mill, so no messing about from Millan this time round)
The last player Hughes wants to bring in is a striker or possibly two is he dose not get his 1st choice which is:

David Villa – with City not wanting to go over 35 mill, if he decides to go to liverpool (who are leading the running but are struggling to work out a finance package and want to pay over 3 years) then City will attempt to get the strike partnership from Barca, being:

Etto and Henry – with near 30 mill being set aside for the deal. .
  Andrew Surman? jesus he has just got promoted with leicester who are on a real high and though it pains me to say have a decent young side
Who ever wrote that needs 2know he is currently a Southampton player!!! However, City are trying to bring Surman to the Walkers along with Simon Cox, Kerra Gilbert on loan along with Tom Clevery. Some top talent from eastern Europe are on their way to the Walkers. Quality like Tunchev. Stockdale signing on a permanant. Failure in MK Dons gettin promoted then Peter Leven is on his way to the LCFC.

Whilst Patrick Kisnorbo is the only real big name player leaving.
  I have some 100 accurate information from my sourc in Spain you all know who he his. He tells me Arsenal are already thinking of life without Ade and have made inquiries regarding Fernando Llorente (Bilbao), Daniel Guiza (Fenerbache), Diego Forlan (Atletico)

Llorente who scored his first internation goal against England is choice number 3 my source says that Wenger thinks he unproven

Daniel Guiza all should know bout him 27 la liga goals all from open play Wenger has enquired about him after a poor season in Turkey around £10m he can be brought

Diego Forlan Wenger has made an enquiry but Atletico have said they will only sell star players if they finish outside the top 4, the price available for Forlan will be around £8m but 30 years of age is the factor.
  Major signings at Liverpool this summer:

Ezequiel Lavezzi (20mil)
Gareth Barry (10mil)
Kuba (7mil)
David Silva (18mil)
Gabriel Heinze (4mil)

Leaving will be:

Lucas Leiva (6.5mil) + buy back clause
Jermaine Pennant (free)
Sami Hyypia (free)
Andriy Voronin (3mil)
Charles Itjande (0.5mil)
Andrea Dossena (5mil)
+ Keane Transfer (12mil) + 3mil since Spurs not relgated
Damien Plessis, Adam Hamill, Paul Anderson, Sebastian Leto (loan)
  LOL, firstly to all you Liverpool fans out there you're deluded. As everyone knows Hicks and Gillet are going to need to re–finance in the summer, and while it looks like they will be able to do it, there will be no money left over for transfers, especially not £45 million plus sales.

Liverpool
IN's
G. Barry 9 mil
G. Johnson 11 mil
S. Downing 10 mil

OUT's
Babel 12 mil (Inter, Arsenal, Juve)
Alonso 17 mil (Real, Inter)
Voronin 4 mil (Hertha)

Man Utd
IN's
Lahm 16 mil
Ribery 32 mil (only if Ronaldo leaves)
Tevez 25 mil

OUT's
G. Neville (retiring due to injury)
Carrick (his future at the club will be looked at during the summer)
Ronaldo 60–70 mil (less likely to leave, will probably wait till SAF retires)

Chelsea
IN's
Zhirkov 14 mil
or
Silva 25 mil
Eto'o 25 mil
or
Villa 40 mil
And possibly a defender as Alex expressed his desire to leave earlier on in the season and Carvalho have been injured quite often this season.
And finally a back–up goalkeeper

OUT's
Both Malouda and Kalou will be looked at in the summer. Drogba or Anelka may also leave, depending offers come in.
Deco will leave. 4 mil
Ferreira
Shevchenko
Alex, Carvalho and Ballack may also leave.

The Bender
  Celtic – With McManus's injury possibly ruling him out for rest of season, Glen Looevens will be given a "shot" at making the position his own and Celtic may look to offloading their skipper in the summer and recalling Scott Cuthbert as cover to Caldwell and Looevens with Darren O'Dea as another alternative. If Looevens fails to impress don't be surprised to see Celtic go for Aberdeen's Zander Diamond as a replacement. Gary Caldwell will be given the captain's armban for next season regardless. In the middle of the park, Hartley will be offered a one year extension and he knows he will be used more from the bench than not but also he'll be introduced to the coaching side working alongside Chris McCart's new look team. Balde, Naylor Nakamura, Hesselink, Samaras will be allowed to leave if offers come in. A few of the reserves will be sent on loan again BUTexpect a few to make the breakthrough next season including McCourt, McGinn, Millar, Marr, Caddis and Mizuno. There will be signings, but not of the £3–4million as rumoured here, there could be one jersey seller brought in and the strong rumour is one of either Michael Owen or Milovesky of Dynamo Kiev. Hail Hail to the Hoops
  Everton to sign bendtner on lon and they will then spend 16 million on nani from man u heard this from a very good source

  To the Sky blues fan having a go at Barnsley.

This is a rumours site, get to know your football Surman plays for Southampton not Leicester!!!!!
  Liverpool are considering making an offer for Robinho. The deal would cost 15mil + Babel, who Mark Hughes is a big fan.
  1st of all to the very over optimistic Arsenal fan who claims Arsenal are getting Martins, Bassong and Taylor. WHAT ARE YOU ON ABOUT?!

1st you said Martins will be signed for 12 million because NUFC are certain to go down,if we beat Mboro and Fulham at home we stay up, simple as! Martins has said many times this season he would like 1 more year at NUFC if we stay up!

2nd you said you would be getting Bassong on a free at the end of the season as his contract runs out and he's a good player. HIS CONTRACT RUNS OUT IN 2011! Bassong has also stated he wouldn't like to leave if we stay up as he feels he owes the club alot and NUFC are ready to increase his wages by 35,000!and NUFC won't sell him for less than 10mil

3rd and the most ridiculous vof all, Steven Taylor for 4.5mil????? HE said when he signed his contract THIS SEASON!that his lifelong club is his life. he will never leave as long as they want him. Taylor's minimum release as stated by Kevin Keegan and surely won't be changed by Alan Shearer is 12mil! Steven Taylor bleads black and White. I LIVE IN THE SAME STREET AS HIM! he would never go to Arsenal.


Another thing, about a week ago a very over optimistic Wolves fan said they were getting Michael Owen on a free, GET REAL! He will stay if we stay up i beleive as Alan Shearer will stay on and if he doesn't sign a contract he will go to Liverpool or Everton, not Wolves!!

NUFC 4 LIFE!



We're staying up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  I have been informed that there will be a pay as you play offer on the table for Michael Owen to go to Aston Villa this summer.
  Arsenal are eyeing up some young attacking players and more experienced defensive players after another season without silverware.

First on the Agenda:

Stephan El Shaarawi (Genoa)– 16 years old, can play striker or wing as well as CAM has already made his debut for Italy U17's has Egyptian parentage. He has impresed with his deft 1st touch and creative skills, made his 1st team debut in December against Chievo. Genoa are willing to part with him for 6 million

Eden Hazard (LOSC Lille)–18 years old, plays on either wing or as a central playmaker, has great vision and unbelievable dribbling remiscent of Messi, Wenger has already admitted being impressed by his progress, He is however being followed by Man Utd, Chelsea and Barca and is tied to Lille till 2012 but an offer of 8 million should suffice.

Robert Aquafresca– 21 years old, Striker on loan with Caligari from Inter Milan, has impressed by scoring 11 goals this season prompting speculation that Inter Milan will offload him to get a good price 2 fund their summer spree,Quick, strong and a good creator has had Wenger take notice 10 million may land him, but Napoli and Genoa are interested.

Marouane Chamakh–25 years old, Striker, Bordeaux has stated his desire to move to Arsenal,powerfully built at 6 ft 2, good touch and great finisher has scored 11 golas in 30 games. It is rumoured that Spurs are preparing 9 million offer.

Sofiane Feghouli– 19 years old central midfielder, was instrumental in Grenoble's rise from Ligue 2 has already been tagged the new Zidane, but is actually more of a midfield anchor who could slot in next to Fabregas easily but with Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool all interested a bidding war could erupt.

Mamadou Sahko + Sebastian Bassong– The most likely arrivals at Arsenal in the summer, Sahko has impressed at PSG with commanding displays at CB and LB and is almost certain 2 complete a move to the Emirates for 8 million. Bassong has been Newcastle's player of the season, but with the Toon's relegation woes they will probably b forced 2 sell him for a cut price of 5 million and Arsenal are his top suitors.

Brede Hangeland– Has probably been one of the best defenders in the Premier League this season helping Fulham keep one of the best defensive records in the league and within touching distance of Europe and at 27 his experience would b invaluble (8 million)

Giorgio Chellini– One of the top defenders in the world period. The heir apparent to Fabio Cannavaro would cost a mammoth amount of around 20 million (at least) but with Juventus looking to fund their own transfer plans an unwanted Arsenal player + cash could covince them to sell their prized asset.

Marcos Senna– 32, the star of Euro 2008 was a phenom in the middle of the park for Villareal breaking up every attack and providing assists and some spectacular long–range strikes impressed Wenger especially when he saw how badly Arsenal ran over Villareal without him, the ideal man next to Fabregas who could allow Denilson,Song and Diaby to grow over the coming years. With Villareal set 2 miss the CL next season they may sell their captain for around 10 million.
  To start of with, walsall will be buying a few
out–of contract players this summer.

Ins

s.pearson–derby–free
a.todd–derby–free

of may 2010.
walsallforever!!!
  Stig Tofting will be appointed Port Vale manager within the next 2 weeks. He was at Vale Park yesterday for talks.
  Likely exits from the EPL:–

Zokora (Spurs – any one of Sevilla/Atletico Madrid/Fiorentina/Udinese/Hamburg/Stuttgart/Marseille), Kranjcar (Portsmouth – Sevilla/Atletico Madrid/Marseille/Roma/Panathinaikos)
  Alex mcleish is at the rangers game today saying that he is interested in a few players like ferguson mcgregor boyd mcgeady etc but that is a lie he is up there because he is going to be the new rangers boss in the summer he has been treated shamefully by david gold and karen brady

  Nicklas Bendtner and Roque santa cruz will swap clubs with 4million also going to ewood park. Arsenal will get a buy back option on bendtner.
  Liverpool Rumours
Liverpool ar close to signing Gareth Barry, some may see him in Liverpool this week or next as he's about to agree personal terms with Liverpool for a fee of £9m + £3m after appearances. Liverpool will also sign Stewart Downing, conditional on whether or not Boro drop. Expect Kuba Blaszczykowski to join for around £8m and Glen Johnson for £10m. Michael Owen will also sign on a free as well as Negredo, the fee just depends on whether or not Real Madrid choose to use their first option clause, which they probably will, seeing as the price tag at the minute is £5m and they'll buy him to sell for double that, which Liverpool are willing to pay. Don't be expecting any big named signings this season, although we will try for Aguero, Silva and Villa, but we're not quite in the financial position to be making these signings with these Yanks at the helm. Babel, Lucas, Pennant, Voronin will all leave, with Aurelio being a possibility if Downing joins. AND RAFA BENITEZ ISN'T LEAVING. Explain why when he'll be in full control next season, exactly what he wanted at Valencia. He's a reds fan now so don't be expecting him to join Madrid. And Xabi Alonso isn't leaving, especially as he's just had the best season in his career.
Also expect to see Tevez and Ronaldo join Real Madrid with the mancs signing Benzema. Arsenal will sign Sakho, Yaya Toure and Babel, Chelsea will be quite quiet, but Ancelotti will be the new manager and don't be surprised to see them move for Kaka, although I doubt he'll sign. They will however buy Diego and are looking at Vlado Ibisevic, Kenwyne Jones and Sanli Tuncay to replace Anelka, who'll leave to sign for Lyon as a replacement for Benzema.
  To the guy commenting on Valencia's financial situation. . since when was being 600m euros in debt just a short term problem? Their problems lie much in the same as Leeds but on much larger scale, buyers for the land of the Mestalla can't afford to pay agreed price, interest on loans topping 40m a year and the only way of making any money is through the sale of their players. Villa will go to Madrid or Barca for 40m and Silva will join Liverpool or Juve for around 25m, quite a step down in asking price when Man City were quoted 125m for both in Jan. Albiol will join either Arsenal or Liverpool for 9m, Zigic will join either Santander, Wolves or Blackburn if they stay up for around 5m, Banega will join A.Madrid and Joaquin will join Sevilla. Manuel Fernandes will join Everton again initially on loan, but will sign permanantly. Renan being looked at by Arsenalalso
  Burnley fc will sign tommy miller on a free from ipswich and we will also sign paul parry from cardiff for 800k. darren mccormack will come in on loan for the season and fiorentina striker arturo lupoli will sign for 1 million+. these will all be after the sale of chris eagles to everton for 3/4 million.
