####### Man United news #########
Man United scouts were present in the UEFA cup tie between Udinese and Werder Bremen to have a check on both Alexis Sanchez and Diego and they were impressed. Expect Sir Alex to bid for both of them cuz he needs to find replacement for Scholes and Giggs. United are also leading the chase for Gremio star Douglas Costa. Berbatov is going definitely but don't know about Tevez.Now its 50:50 that he might stay.
Rumour has it that SAF has realised not signing Torres was a huge mistake, and is not prepared to let it happen gain with Sergio Kun Aguero. He will pull out all the stops to sign him during the summer. Ronaldo will be leaving, but not to Real. He'll be joining Barcelona in a deal worth 40 mil plus Xavi. Messi was wanted but Guardiola refused. Nani to Inter for 18 mil and Berbatov to Real for 30 mil. Using the funds United will sign Tevez on a permanent basis and raid West Ham for Collison. Finally Alexis Sanchez and a few South Americans will join.

Firstly lets make this clear to Rangers fans, YOU are Scotlands shame, a club with standards, don't make me laugh, you are the most bigoted club in the world. Yes Celtic have problems attached to their support as well but there really is no comparison. A small minority caused touble in Manchester, mmmm you must be as ignorant as Bain and the Scottish press were in denying the scale of the riots. Just so people know i am a St.Mirren fan and our club along with the rest of Scottish football detest the rotten Ibrox bunch, its not just Celtic fans who feel this way. We can't all be wrong about Rangers.
For a football rumour unfortunately Andy Dorman will sign for the rotten mob in the summer for a fee of 1 million, a big loss for the Buddies but this money will be invested in the team as we are in a very good position fianancially. Oh aye and one other thing we will do the Gerts in the cup semi in a couple of weeks to leave yous empty handed once again, come on ye Saints!!!!!
I am one of the senior clerics at Sunderland AFC and I can say that it is a 99.99% certainty that the club will be signing Afonso Alves if Middlesbrough are to be relegated, but if Middlesbrough do the unexpected and manage to stay up an alternative striker will have to be identified. There are also other targets for Sunderland and the planned leaving of other players.
– Jones (Tottenham)
– Cisse (Marseille)
– Gordon (Rangers)
– Richardson (Everton) (with Van Der Meyde coming the other way as part of the deal)
– Kaboul, he has failed to impress at Portsmouth and rumours say he is discontent with life on the South coast
– Danny Shittu
– Afonso Alves
– Van Der Meyde
– Alan Smith
MAN UTD NEWS
First, let's stop naming Sergio Ramos as a transfer target. WE already have Rafael as our rb of the future, and if we get a player from Real in exchange for Ronaldo, only Cassilas or possibly Robben would interest Utd. At this point Ronaldo will NOT be leaving, as MU and Nike are currently putting together a new package for CR7 that includes a large bump in both base salary, bonuses and marketing profits.
Tevez and Berbatov will stay, but only if Benzema is not available from Lyon. If he does come (prob for 35–40 mil) then expect Tevez to be allowed to leave.
Nani will be sent to Atletico Madrid along with 15 mil for Sergio "Kun" Aguero.
A left winger will be purchased, either Ribery (30–35mil), Sanchez (12–15), Valencia (10–15) or Silva (15–20).
Fergie will take a look at Diego as a possibility for an attacking midfielder, but Juventus still seems the likely destination for the Brazillian.
Finally, Fergie will buy 2–3 young phenoms as investments. He has realized that its cheaper to spend money on these players when they are 17 or 18 than to wait a few years til they cost 30–40mil. Players on his radar include Douglas Costa, Neymar, and about 4 or 5 additional south american players. Total cost of this investment should be around 30 mil.

Fulham transfer rumours they will look mainly at young players such as darron gibson on loan.tom huddlestone looks destined for fulham for around 5mil also it looks as if steve savidan will come to craven cottage for 3.5mil.uefa cup here we come!
Arsenal Football Club:
Joe Hart – Manchester City – Loan
Brede Hangeland – Fulham – £6 million
Yaya Toure – Barcelona – £12 million
Philippe Senderos – AC Milan – £4 million
Nicklas Bendtnar – West Ham – £7 million
Armand Traore – Portsmouth – £2 million
To the person who stated "It has finally been announced by Cristiano Ronaldo's agent, Manchester United football club and Real Madrid that Cristiano Ronaldo will sign for the 'galacticos' in the summer for a fee of 67.1 million pounds and Arjen Robben. The deal has been in place from the 18th November 2008 in which they came to an agreement via satellite link after both parties agreed a sum and that the player wished to move to spain."
I can absolutely guarantee that this is palpable nonsense. There was no agreement made between the clubs on November 18 and there has been no announcement. Whether or not Ronaldo leaves for Madrid or anywhere else during this or next summer, has not been decided.
Newcastle United will offer Joe Kinnear his position as manager back in the summer even if the team are relegated to the Championship although since Chris Houghton has departed the club, Iain Dowie is very likely to remain as an assistant at the club. If Kinnear rejects the opportunity to manage the club for health reasons, Ashley will try and persuade Shearer to remain with the club for the Championship dogfight although the owner is also keen on ambitiously bringing in Sven Goran Errikson.
Man Utd Transfer Rumours
Nani 10–15m (Inter Milan) – The Portuguese winger has failed to impress SAF as he is inconsistent. With the arrival of Serbian winger Zoran Tosic, who is faster than Nani, better at dead ball situations and is a consistent performer, expect Nani to leave for Inter Milan, who are looking for a replacement for Ricardo Quaresma who will depart in the summer, with Chelsea being his favoure destination
Berbatov 20m+ (Inter Milan/AC Milan) – SAF would prefer Tevez to sign permanently, so the Bulgaria captain will leave OT for Italy
Hargreaves 10m (Bayern) – Too many injuries
Darren Fletcher 5–10m (Sunderland/Rangers/Celtic)
Manucho 2.5–5m (Hull)
Douglas Costa 10–15m (Gremio) – Highly rated Attack Midfielder
Alexis Sanchez 10–15m (Udinese) – Quality Striker/Midfielder with bags of potential and pace
Sergio Lionel Aguero 20–30m (At. Madrid) – Immense player, will only be signed if Tevez or Ronaldo leaves
Expect a right back and centre back aswell
Simon Cox of Swindon Town is set to complete a 1.35 million pound move to League 1 runaway leaders Leicester City in the summer.
To the person who said: 'Liverpool have wrapped up a deal with Atletico Madrid that will see Maxi Rodriguez and Sergio Aguero move to Anfield for 30m plus Alvaro Arbeloa'. Sergio Aguero alone is worth more than £30m, let alone with Maxi part of the deal as well. For this deal you are looking more at £40–45m + Arbeloa.
Anyway onto my rumours. Chelsea are reportedly in the hunt for two strikers. One big name and one for backup. The backup would be Roman Pavlyuchenko, who Guus Hiddink has said is not being treated rightly by Redknapp, who contiues to leave him in the reserves despite comming into some good form at White Hart Lane. Hiddink believes that Pav' would be of good use at Chelsea and would get better playing time than he does at Spurs. Hiddink will recommend Pavlyuchenko (£15m) and his Russian team mate Zhirkov (£15m) before leaving Chelsea in the summer. The big name striker Chelsea are reportedly following is none other than David Villa. It is well known that Valencia are in big financial problems, so selling Villa to Chelsea and David Silva to Liverpool would go some way to solving their problems. Chelsea are willing to pay £40m for the Euro 2008 star, however Valencia will demand no less than £45m.
There are a lot of rumours flying around that William Gallas has played his last game for Arsenal, after being ruled out for the rest of the season. However Wenger has said that he sees Gallas seeing out the final year of his contract at the Emirates next season. Gallas himself has not so long ago said that he will see out his contract before leaving Arsenal. Gallas will be with us next season before making a Lehmann–like departure on a free transfer. This summer we will be buying Mamadou Sakho of PSG for around £5–8m, so by the time Gallas leaves in the summer of next season, Sakho will have played enough for us to be a ready made replacement (he is not good enough yet). Provided that no players leave us this summer, I cannot see any areas other than defence and possibly goalkeepeing that we would need to strengthen in. I believe we are already strong enough in midfield, despite all those who say we need a defensive midfielder. Alex Song has been putting on some very promising performances lately in that defensive midfield role, along with Diaby and Denilson who can also sit and protect the defence. If big name players in this area are brought in (Yaya Toure, Miguel Veloso etc.) then players like Song, Diaby and Denilson will have no room to progress. Bringing in Mamadou Sakho along with Espanyol B team midfield starlet Pablo Saranova in the summer would be good enough for me, so long as no BIG players leave. Remember we still have injuries who will be as good as new signings, particuarly long term absentee Tomas Rosicky, when they return.
In Arsene We Trust
Moutinho is keen to link up with zola as he feels he can learn from him only sticking point is the money being asked a reported 20 million zola might finance the move with the sale of m noble who has both arsenal and everton interested
Man utd transfers
Fergie is gettin sick of the whole team carrying the egos of Ronaldo and Berbatov and will ship them out this summer. Along with them will be Nani out on loan(last chance saloon).
Ronaldo – 20mil p/ex madrid
Berbatov – 25mil either milan team
Kuzchach(awful spelling!) – 6mil mid–table team

Flechter(Hargreaves return) – 8mil Arsenel
Park ji–sung(expiring contract) – 5mil
Nani – 2mil loan everton
Macheda – 1mil loan
Frazier–Cambell – 8mil Hull
Total Income – 82mil + 30mil kitty + 20mil left aside for Tevez = 132mil
Fergie will sign Tevez permantly for 20mil(wich was laid aside for this transfer) since he paid kia 8mil for 2 year loan. He will replace Ronaldo with Ribery and Nani with Silva. Foster will get more of a chance in goal because of Kuzchach departure and VDS age. Benzema will be brought in because of Berbatov departure. Ramos and Sneijder will come in as part of Ronaldo deal plus 20mil our way. David Weater will be brought in when Boro get rel, Fergie sees him forming a solid partnership for the future with Evans. Also 3 youngsters from Brazil will be arriving for the future.
Sneijder – p/ex
Ramos – p/ex
Tevez – 20mil
Ribery – 25mil
Silva – 22mil
Benzema – 30mil
Weater – 10mil
Kerrison – 9mil

Total Outcome – 132mil
United for 4 in a row!!
Heard from a friend who knows John Owens the current academy manager that Liverpool are looking to strengthen their current squad this summer with the following acquisitions:
Adam Johnson (RW/LW) (Middlesbrough) If Middlesbrough get relegated this season then expect Johnson to arrive for a fee in the region of £8,000,000
Fernando Llorente Torres (ST) (Atl. Bilbao) Has impressed this season scoring 16 goals in 34 games. Atl. Bilbao would settle for a deal worth around £9,500,000
Gareth Barry (CM,LM,LB) (A.Villa) Aston Villa will most likely finish 5th or 6th in the Premier League this season which will result in the departure of Barry. Expect Aston Villa to command a fee of around £8,000,000 due to Barrys contract due to expire.
Liverpool will then sell the following players:
Voronin. £3,500,000 to Hertha Berlin.
Pennant. Free to Portsmouth.
Degen. £1,000,000 to Bundesliga
N'gog. Loan to newly promoted Premier League club.
Spearing. Loan to newly promoted Premier League club
Everton will be a stronger force come the end f the summer if everything goes according to plan

Steven Defour 12M
Lucas Biglia 10M

Trust me I know
In reply to this blue nose clown .
Just a wee word to praise the Gers for being swift in the punishment of the gruesome twosome. Other clubs (Celtic) Should follow suit and do the same to scotlands biggest idiot Artur Boruc. Just shows the difference in traditions at both clubs, but Strachan doesn't need to as his fans are making fools of themselves anyway as it is. lol, As for the person who refers to Scotlands most successful team as Rankers or the stadium as Ipox, this person typifies what is wrong with scotland today and his lack of intelligence mixed with obvious hatred and bigotry reflects extremely badly on the club he supposedly supports. If only he could take a step back and take a look at himself. .how embarrassing.
I'm the person who referred to your club as rankers and your stadium as ipox, this is a light hearted wind up, as for my lack of intelligence, well, i'm pretty happy with my qualifications as is my employer, as for my obvious hatred and bigotry, what is this based on??? what part of my comments is bigoted?????, i have took a step back and looked at myself and i'm happy with what i see.
Your correct that our support have different traditions, just ask the good people of Manchester!!!!!
Why should we punish Artur??? blessing yourself isn't a crime and is an act that you will see players throughout the world do each game.
As for rankers punishing wee barry sidebaw & mcgreger, these are two of the players dodgy dave wanted to sell a few mouths ago. . . strange that walter smith didnt take the same action many years ago when Gazza battered his wife whilst at rankers!!!!!
Anyway sorry for the rant. . here is the rumours i've heard.
Spurs will bid around £8M for scott brown but Celtic will turn this down as they intend to build the team around him. Although if it went as high as £10M then it will be goodbye to Brooney
Celtic will look a few loans deals for some of the younger players at Man Utd.
Rumours about a swap deal with Liverpool involving Stevie Gerald and Chris Killen are not true:)
Having seen his first choice team finally getting closer to United, Benitez is going to go for experience to bolster his squad. It seems pretty certain now that he will bring in Barry for about £8 million. He will also get Michael Owen in on a pay–as–you–play deal for free whether the Geordies are relegated or not. His 3rd striker is going to be none other than Thierry Henry as Benitez knows of his respect for the club's traditions and fans. He is going to cost around £12–15 million. These are only his early targets and more will take place as he can move players on (Lucas,Babel,Dossena,Benayoun). No big big transfers in this window though.
Big news. Despite recently saying that he would not want to leave AC Milan to manage Chelsea, it is understood that Carlo Ancelotti has a 'gentlemans agreement' with Roman Abramovic to take over as Chelsea manager in the summer. It is said that Ancelotti did not want to leave Milan mid–season (thus Chelsea brought in Hiddink), but would be happy to move to the bridge in the summer. A £5.8m contract is set to be penned in June by Ancelotti, with Milan reportedly giving him their blessing to join Chelsea. With Kaka having recently having left the door open for a move to the premier league, by saying that he wants to play in England after AC Milan, and with him no doubt keen to follow Ancelotti to Chelsea, Mr. Abramovic will make as many funds as needed available for Ancelotti to lure Kaka to the bridge. Kaka came very close to moving to Man City in the summer, as he wants to play in the premier league, however it did not go through because City are not the right club for him. However he would relish the chance to play for Chelsea, and Chelsea would be able to offer enough cash to see this happen.
I am not a Chelsea supporter, so this is not a wish, it is a rumour.
In Arsene We Trust
The Toronto Blue Jays have a patch on their sleeve
this season with the word 'Ted' inscribed. Supposed to be to in memory of the late owner, maybe you should give them a call to let them know that in keeping with the season he has arisen.

After last nights champions league game against, Bentiez realises the need for better strength and depth. Lucas, Dossena, Aurelio, Degen, El Zhar, Leto, will all be on their way. In will be: Johnson & Richards – Man City, Marcelo – Madrid, Johnson – Portsmouth, Silva – Valencia, Rafinha – Schalke and Bentley – Tottenham.
All deals in the pipeline
Whoever claimed that Ted (Edward) Rogers III (owner of the cable company and toronto Blue Jays,) died last year, you need to check your facts before asking other people to check theirs'. This Ted Rogers is still alive, the Ted Rogers who died last year is the comedian Ted Rogers (dusty bin) etc.
Onto rumours, expect Real Madrid to sign the two Ronnies (ronaldo and ronaldinho) in the summer, as well as bringing in Kaka. Other possible moves are for David Villa and Fabregas, although it is unlikely they will arrive.
Expect Arsenal to enquire about buying Higuain and Sneijder and Gago, as these will be sold to bring funds for 'el galacticos'
Tevez will be having a meeting within the next month with Kia and scott duxbury with regards to the move back to upton park. it will not be a permenant signing but as a 3 year loan, this time without the 3rd party agreement.
Kia and his group are looking at taking over 75% of west ham by the end of june in order to keep the current owner out of the brown stuff in Iceland. deal to be worth in the region of £70M.
Kia and his group are rumoured to be putting a further £25M in to Zola's fund, however he has been made aware that he must go the academy route if possible to achive a place in the europa leauge next season and that the funds are there as a back up only
To the person who wrote:
Dear god, is that wishful thinking or what?! Absolute poppycock. There will not be anyone buying Rangers, this summer or any summer. The level of debt is so immense, and Rangers and some of their fanbase being nothing short of an embarrasment in Europe, what possible appeal is there to buying them?
Number 1: This summer or any summer, I think that is more wishful thinking on your part. If this statement was to be true, which is infact impossible, David Murray would need to be immortal. Therefore they will be sold at some point. So your logic in that sentence is idiotic.
Number 2: Rangers being an embarrasment in europe. Thats funny, I seem to recall taking my seat at a UEFA cup final less than 11 months ago.
Number 3: Why is it that Rangers fans talk about Rangers on here, but Celtic fans seem to be more interested in whats going on at Ibrox as opposed to their own club. Why?????? Very sad, but for the Celtic fans who feel the need to take time out of their lives to comment on a team they don't even support, do you even realise that it is quite plane to see to anyone the amount of hatred flowing through your veins. It really is quite sad and laughable.
Feeney to sign for Gers despite being singled out by Celtic fans recently for supporting a certain football team. He feels he can rise above the embarrasing fans of the old firm. Also Hutton will return, along with two young boys on loan from Man Utd. Ferguson will leave with McGregor,Hemdani, Dailly, Weir and Stevie Smith
True Blues please don't lower yourselves the their level. And let them get on with the low intelligence comments. Its them who are embarrasing Celtic.
((( AFC Bulletin )))
Its heard AW might make a move 4 Everton player Jack Rodwell , Rodwell made his full Everton debut as a substitute against Alkmaar at 16 years 2 become the youngest Toffees player 2 play in Europe . AW is also interested in Real Madrid player Gonzalo Higuain , Higuain has scored 17 times 4 Madrid this season . Its known Werder Bremen player Diego will leave and move 2 another club , expect AW 2 move 4 him if Fabregas leaves AFC .
Man City will lodge a £180 million bid for Roanaldo in the summer. New manager will be Jurgen Klinsman. Also expect to see Drogba, Lahm, and Bentley arrive at Eastlands. From Fanny Lee.
As far as gazprom and rangers are concerned, it is technically possible for them to have a stake in rangers. They are majority shareholders in both Zenit St. Petersburg and Schalke 04 in Germany. Unfortunately, since they already provide funds for two large european clubs, i doubt that they would be interested in Rangers (a club with considerable debts to clear before any buy–out). On a lighter note, Rangers to bid for Sandaza of Dundee Utd, a fee of around £1 million taken from the sale of Ferguson to Sunderland, should be enough. McGregor to be back in action before the end of April, Smith has become annoyed with the media deciding for him that he will never play again. However, Ferguson will never play again, as the management believe that he should've known better as captain of both club and country and has shamed Rangers.
We give True Blue grief for Ted Rogers cos the poor bloke died last year, and then you say that it could be Ted Rogers of 3–2–1 fame!
You have to laugh, cos he died in 2001!!!!!!
Anyway, WHU are consolidating what they have over the summer, with only the likes of Davenport, Quashie, LBM, Bowyer and possibly Dyer on the move.
The only ins are likely to be a striker and midfielder. Maybe a central defender. And that's it.
Other interesting fact that I heard was that Dean Ashton's career is likely to be over since the injury he sustained is incurable. The bone he broke in his foot/ankle is in such a place where every time he puts weight on it, it causes pain.
Keeping the world informed.
Doc Martens Upper
Utd set to replace the outgoing Nani (Inter Milan) with Bastien Schweinstiger (Bayern Munich). They want a front three of Rooney, Ronaldo and Schweinstiger.
Liverpool are attempting to set up a link with Almeria, which would give them 1st option on their players and loan arrangements between the clubs. Rafa wants this in place due to his interest in Pablo Piatti(AM/FC) and Mane(LB) both of whom currently at Almeria. So Arsenal's reported interest on here may be hit if this is agreed. Arsene is looking for a striker to replace Adebayor who is off to AC Milan for 30m euros. On the list are Santa Cruz(£17m), Dzeko(12m) and Ryan Babel(12m). And also a CB and CM. CB inc Sakho, Lescott, Agger, Chiellini and Micah Richards. For CM Veloso, Arteta, Xabi Alonso and Gago.
Ted Rogers is dead. . but his son is also called Ted, what this has got to do with football I don't know?! One rumour that won't go away (and that I don't like) is that Craig Levein will be the next Rangers boss! Also expect us to make a loan signing from Man Utd.
QPR NEWS– Gary Mcallister will be QPR`s next boss and he will sign disgraced Rangers player Barry Ferguson.
Hello to all coventry fans who are desperate to hear news on some summer transfers.
Well this comes from a reliable source who was also correct in saying that chris coleman would be next city boss when ian Dowie got sacked. This source is good friends with Gary Mcsheffery and he says that MAC is desperate to come back to the sky blues and "would walk" at the oppurtunity. However with Birmingham reportedly commanding a price of 4m – the amount they paid for him, this could prove a stumbling block for the sky blues.
Other players we have been strongly linked with
Scott sinclair – loan
Craig mickel smith
Finnaly there are suggestions that coleman is looking for an experienced CM who can run the play to partnner young Gunnarson. A player like how Dennis Wise was for us 3 years ago. The identity of this player however is still unclear.
