Giggs, Scholes, Neville to retire after 2007/2008 season. .with this, look for heintaga or abidal to replace neville w/ SAF also keeping tabs on the development of bale and his own bardsley, scholes will be replaced with moutinho (who will be bought in jan 2008 window) and nani to repalce giggs. .hargreaves/parker as well as torres and nani will come in this summer. .the sales of fletcher, o'shea, smith, and wes brown are possible but NOT all of them with fletcher being the most likey. .MAN U team at start of 2008/2009 season
heitenga/abidal rio/vidic evra/heinze
ronaldo moutinho/carrick/(parker/hargreaves) nani
rooney/torres (saha/rossi)This is a note from a liverpool fan who reads from this site daily. some of the stuff that people come out with is pure entertainment. the way that people believe that teams have hoards of cash that they're willing to throw away, to having relationships with people through bizarre and strange networks that are apparently reliable! People please keep it coming!
But i've got to draw the line somewhere. talk of garcia leaving is almost as stupid as talk of gerrard leaving. garcia is someone who will consistently score in the champion's league and has a great record of scoring in the big games against chelsea, arsenal n co! benitez would never offload him unless he failed to score in a season! Its obvious that hyppia, fowler n zenden are on their way out. i wreckon that benitez will go for micah richards to cover right back, and possibly matthew upson depending on his proneness for injury. i think that craig lindfield in the reserves might graduate to first team in the new season of 2007 n replace fowler. i suspect that gerrard will spend some time on the right of midfield and expect benitez to sign a centre midfielder in the shape of kevin nolan! please feel free to criticise my thoughts! i know its nothing exciting or elaborate but my imagination and creativity do not stretch that far!
kev!Liverpool to buy during Jan window 06-07 and before next season:
Butelle - Valencia = £1.5m
Neill - Blackburn = swap for Warnock.
Coloccini - Deportivo = £3.5m
Mikael Alonso - Sociedad = £1m
Guti - Madrid = £10m
Cacia - Piacenza = £3m
Leaving will be: Dudek (Free to ?) / Carson (Charlton) / Hyppia (may retire?) / Warnock (swap) / Zenden (Ajax) / Kewell (Spurs) / Fowler (Stoke)+ Rafa will let loan players leave = Cisse / Pongolle / Potter / Daio & Le TallecAs mark randall replaced Denilson early in the second half of the Carling cup , expect Randall 2 play in the season as it is heard that fabregas just might leave arsenal 4 real madrid in january or at the end of the season after the fraceas he had at the whuf match and Randall could be fabregases replacment . Also expect lauren 2 leave 4 seville in january or at the end of the season .Is it just me or is tim cahill the best player outside the big 4. it also looks like tim cahill is of to inter milanI reckon that arsenal will sign Baptista on a permanent deal, Philip Lahm 4 12m, the return of steve sidwell with aliadiere goin 2 reading and arsenal 2 sign louis Saha 4 16mFreddy Adu hav been given permission to train with man united for 2 weeks. .It is his ambition to join man united and he is one step ahead by training with them. he will sign a professional contract next summer when he turns 18. .Torres will join in january together with nani. .Hargreaves will only join in the summer
I don write stupid rumours like others

Real Rumours People. .RazorArsene Wenger has clearly stated that he will not sign any new players in January, and Marseille chairman Pape Diouf has now said that there is no chance that Franck Ribery will leave the Stade Velodrome. Saying that, people continue to link Ribery with a move to the Emirates in January. God only knows why. There's a decent chance that Ribery will join next summer though, and he definitely won't join Real Madrid. Madrid will add youngster Fernando Gago to their squad in January, which will rule out the need for any other midfielders.All you lot are dreaming, if you think you can steal our Freddy for less than £5m. .
Do me a favour, the £2-£3m I've seen quoted on here is a joke. .
He's the best striker outside the Prem.
He will not go to any Championship club. .FACT. Prem only for our Freddy, and it will be summer 2007 at the earliest before he leaves Roots Hall.
Get a grip dreamers!To all these ppl who r statin man u will sign 20 odd players ova the next 2 transfer windows get real maybe 5 players maximum we've got a big squad already and would most likly ave to sell a few ppl 2 balance the books before buyin remember the glaziers r runnin the club like a bussiness and can't just spend randomly like chelsea.most of the names mentioned r bein scouted by united but they r either/or's 4 example united ain't gonna sign torres and huntalear as they've allready got saha rooney smith solskjear rossi and fangenzu when he eventually arrives from belgium so if we were 2 sign both we'd ave 7 strikers com'on so heres the list of either/or's
there r also a lot of youngsters that sir alexs is castin a eye ova but he won't make a move 4 them 4 a couple of years as there 2 young 2 press 4 the united first team so it's betta they stay at the current clubs and gain first team experiance
lennon will only sign if ronaldo leaves so u can't stop shoutin off about that 1.
and of course the usual exodus of youth players who sadly didn't make the grade
as 4 sellin smith or park sir alex hold both in high regard at old trafford as they have the quality and more importantly the work rate u'll be seein them 4 a long time yet. u need workers in ur team look wat happened 2 real madrid since they got rid of there workers in place of fancy flare players who can do the tricks but won't run there asses of when there losin.
well that wat's reli happenin at old trafford.Man Utd will sign Ajax striker Klaas jan Huntelaar for around £15 million in JanuaryHull city will make a bid for Rotheram striker Will Hoskins in January around £1millonLiverpool to sign Valencia@s GK Ludovic ButelleMan Utd are to sign Freddy Adu in June 2007 for £6m. Also Huntelaar £12m.
Hargreaves £12m and Nani £8m definintely happening in jan.
Barca not interested in Lampard it's a smokescreen to get Steven Gerrard as clubs sense he aren't happy.
Real Madrid to swap Ronaldo with Adriano.
Chelsea swap SWP and sell Shevchenko back to Milan to go for Torres.
Henry Seriously thinking about leaving as it's the same old story at Arsenal, he aren't got time to wait for youngsters to mature. Also fabregas new long term deal put in place as expect bids for £20-25m from the big two in spain.
Kaka wants to play in the prem in a few yrs. The team he wants to play for is Man Utd as they followed his career in Brazil when he was young but did not take the gamble like AC but Kaka would have gone if they had stumped up £10m.Plymouth Argyle boss Ian Holloway is taking a look at promising Shrewsbury centre back Kelvin Langmead.
The big defender started his career as a striker.Some months ago i posted a rumour that ronaldhino wasnt getting on with his manager after a bust up and wanted to leave , i said this weeks before the media picked up on it because my cousin lives in spain and works at camp nou and he told me, since then he has said that chelsea went in for him and was told they want 30m and lampard for him him which was refused however ac milan are looking to spend the shevchenko money on getting ronaldhino to san siro but the shock news now is that manchester united were prepared to pay 32 for torres and have scrapped those plans now because they can get ronaldhino between 42-45m they also know through sponsorship they can recoup 10m back on him therefore he will be nearer the torres price tag and SAF will finally get the man he has wanted for years but it will also keep the players they have ie ronaldo and rooney at OT instead of having their heads turned by chelsea/barca and real who have all approached united for a price on rooney and ronaldo , OH will arrive in jan however smith will be sold and ole s will retire end of this season leaving rooney saha ronaldhino and rossi up front , giggs scholes and ronaldo can switch from midfield to attacker if needed , silvestre will be off end of this season as well now heinz vidic and evra are playing . p.s. manchester don't want or need beckham back , you never return once you leave OT and becks knows it .Rangers only spent 3.5m on 11 players in the summer and it has cost them the league. Murray fooled Le Guen into thinking he could turn around their fortunes on that budget. Murray to step down in january as new owners are lined up and they will spend more at the end of the year than what rangers have spent in the last 5. Murray only selling to rangers fan, that's why he is not putting any money into the club. January will see the arrivals of anderson and brown.GOOONERNEWS Anthony Stokes is not going anywhere,he w
ill extend his loan at Falkirk until the end of the season and then he will be given his chance next season.The same goes for Nicklas Bendtner.Franck Ribery is trying to get his move to Arsenal brought forward to January but Marseille won't let the move take place until the summer.Yohann Pele will also move to Arsenal in the summer.AW has said that he will not be making any signings in January but expect moves for Micah Richards and possibley Ashley Young?Also major rumour that Arsenal will offer a player to Borussia Dortmund in order to secure Nuri Sahin,the player is rumoured to be Freddie Ljung berg?If plg has 1 monthe 2 save his job if he fails the next boss will be alan curbishly he will bring in sean st ledger and david nugent from pne for 4million pounds scott brown from hibs for 1.4million pounds herman heridersson and jerom thomas for 2million pounds from charlton and hayden mullins from west ham for 1.85million pounds gers possilbe line up- - - - -McGregor- - st ledger- -heridersson- rodreguez- smith- -Burke- -Ferugson(c)- -Mullins- Thomas- - Nugent- Boyd- - Liverpool keeper Jerzy Dudek will be offered to Charlton in Jan as Scott Carson is going to be recalled. Rafa Benitez feels that Dudeks best days are behind him, despite his heroics in midweek, and is looking to free up his 30k a week wage. The Pole believes he still has 3 good years in him and wants to remain in the Prem.Everton fc could be set to land a swap deal involving Andy Van Der Meyde and Ajax Cf Markus Rosenberg.Man utd will offer c. ronaldo and 10 mil for ronaldinho in the summer, they will also try and get adu in june.
SWP wants a move away with either america, italy or spain the place he will go, another english winger,Beckham is also wanting a move with england or america the places he will go. Tottenham are interested but so is DC united.
Arsenal will not get any big money transfers as usaul if AW does buy anyone they will be young.
BUT there could be a left back coming to the emirates, the west brom defender, Curtis Davies is a target.
Lennon will soon enough outgrow the yids and want a move away with all the top clubs interested.
Tevez and mashjerano will be sold to a european club if they do not start to play well.Man utd in's and out's:
in's:man utd ot sign higuain,nani,moutinho,torres,and 19 year old midfielder off brescia marik hamsik if hargreaves can't be signed.

Robinho is on magnificent form this season aswell as sergio ramos who is doing really well at right back. real madrid will sign marcelo and gago in january. But in the summer kaka and possibly c.ronaldo will make a move to real madrid. watch this spaceAston Villa News:
Eastwood - impressed O'neil from recent performances and is being seen as a hot prospect for the future
Defoe - Been in contact and happy with terms at villa, also O'neil is in need of a new striker brcause Sutton's got old and Baros can't count on him for anything.
Keane - for the same reasons as Defoe
Milner - deal should have gone through but was called off. Now it is back on for sure because O'neil see's him as a key prospectNufc News
First of all to the guy that said that there is no chance that Nugent would come to Newcastle you are sadly mistaken, Nugent would want to come to a club that really needs him and right now Newcastle is that club, Everton have their strikers. Another thing a 'True Blue' decided to leave Everton to go to a certain Man U ring any bells?
Nugent, Upson and possibly even Eastwood to be on they're way to geordie land in January. If we stay up then some high profile signings will also be madeExpect Darren Bent to sign for either Tottenham or even Portsmouth at the end of the season for around £10 million.
=v1=Paul Le Guen to be sacked at Rangers next week, 3 man shortlist of Alan Curbishley, Graeme Souness and Terry Butcher to replace him.
Glenn Roeder will be moved to Director of Football at Newcastle as soon as a new manager can be identified.Rafa Benitez will be at AC Milan next season after his agents claims he would consider a move to Italy. These were not off the cuff remarks. Benitez has been unhappy with the board siding with Stevie Gerrard during their recent spat. Milan sounded Benitez out 2weeks ago as they feel Ancelotti has become stale and needs to be replaced.Just heard from a reliable source some names on sir alex's scouting list i'm not sayin that they will be signin in the near future but they r bein looked at
all these players r currently bein scouted by man uFERNANDO TORRES TO OLD TRAFFORD EARLY NEXT YEAR. this is beacuse england are playing spain on 7th feb at old trafford. i have it on good authority that united will throw the red carpet treatment out for nando, in an attempt to get him to old trafford. for example he will be singled out for tours of the training ground, stadium, trophy room and i even heard a whisper that ergie will meet him personally- You heard it hear first!
