Manyoo News i valet players and staff cars at united and i get on well with brian mclair we were talking about fergie signing henry and he said its a smokescreen if its anyone its eto not henry because a henry wouldnt go to united and b hes too old at 30.He said the targets for united are huntellar eto benzema berbatov and david villa . Benzema dont want to move till next year and any deal will be 30plus mil altho united are trying to get rid of saha but lyon not interested in saha marseile are but wont go above 5mil also sunderland and fulham and west ham are looking to sigh saha so he is def going either way thank god.now the interesting part united av offered 25 for berbatov spurs want 35 off united but will accept 25 from any other team outside uk and spurs are after david villa united have told spurs accept 25m for berby or they will sign villa instead spurs called their bluff so the berby deal is dead united will sign either huntellar villa or eto .
eto wants 160k per week so would be the last resort huntellar wants to join united badly so basically its villa or huntellar villa at 1st said he did not want to move to uk he wants to move to barca or madrid and as neither have approached to sign him he now wants to move to epl instead now madrid are still hoping ronaldo will do a u turn and sign for them so a striker not on there radar and barca will only buy villa if eto gets sold which looks unlikely . Mclair said fergie would rather get villa because he will fit in at united and do well where has huntellar may not do as well here as over in holland also by signing villa it will piss off tottenham and madrid in one go so villa is the stiker united will sign and deal will be announced by the end of this week or beginning next week he has got to pass a medical and agree personal terms altho transfer fee been agreed for 30m with a further 6mil in clauses and bonuses if they win epl and in europe again taking totall value to 36m however fergies only worry is that villa cud do what reyes did after a year and say hes not happy there and wants to move back so fergie wants to make sure he will be 100% committed for playing for club where as he knows its huntellars dream to play for united . Mclair also said this could be rooneys last season at united as well because he has not improved since signing and reports of him smoking and the fact hes overweight when back in training aint gone down to well with fergie so if rooney dont perform this season he will be sold so huntellar could come then also rooney has said he only played bad because he was played out of position so he will be played in strikers role and if still same then hes going also rumour floating about is keane is trying to sign scholes and giggs for sundeland but neither want to go there giggs wants to coach at united where scholes just wants to finish his career at united. . .
A source at Hearts who is well in the know about everything that goes on at Tynecastle has told me Hearts are on the verge of signing Srđan Radonjić on a permenant deal from Odense. Chaba Laszlo has been trying to sign the experienced striker for some time and providing he can get a work permit Radonjić should play some part against Rangers.
Newcastle will sign Senderos in a deal which will include Given or NZogbia. Most likely, this will be Given as Newcastle are lining up his replacement, this being Rangers keeper Allan McGregor. Rangers fans be happy as Newcastle were prepared to push hard for Cuellar. Alan Smith will leave for Everton, to the fools that booed, he tried hard but we should never have paid so much for him in the first place. There are too many charlatons in the stands these days. Coloccini is a certainty. Rumours of a meeting with the Valencia hierachy regarding the purchase/loan of Zigic have yet to be officially confirmed. As stated before Jonas is gonna be a big hit so the next purchase may very well be Madrids Ruben de la Red or Udinese's Inler this will be settled during the Senderos deal as Arsenal are the front runners on both. An improved bid for Balckburns Warnock will be submitted and excepted. Whilst Enrique looks to be in great shape as well as form, he still is the only TRUE left back at the club.
ShoutE Your man speaking Spanish in The Toon
Adrian Boothroyd has stated that signings will come sooner rather than later. I know for a fact that DJ Campbell has signed as he has bought a house in rickmonsworth for a million pounds and boothroyd tried to sign him last year.
Alan Smith Defo going 2 Everton. Was at the necastle vs valencia match and at the end of the match smith was the only player to stay on the pitch and aplause the fans, thanking the fans and saying sorry for being such a bad signing? Expect new signing guiterrez to be a hit in the prem.
More of a query of a rumour. Can anyone shine any light on the reports comming out today that Sunderland have agreed to sign Stephen Ireland.
Micaeh Richards is being targeted by Real Madrid AND Barcelona they will need to offer at least 22m to prise him away from Man City
Kaka to Chelsea–
If anyone has read Kaka's fourfourtwo.co.uk interview, you will know he sets himself goals and usually gets them done. He has accomplished all his goals EXCEPT play at the olympics for his country. And now with the Court of Arbitration ruling in favour of clubs and the clubs STILL letting their star players leave or stay, Kaka is a little peeved. However a deal is still a long way off.
if Chelsea do get Kaka, Milan will buy Diego from Werder Bremen.
KJ Huntelaar to ?–
Manchester United, he wants a move to Old Trafford and is expected to be the most cheapest option on Sir Alex's list. However, Sir Alex is eager to bring in a player who wouldn't mind playing second fiddle to Rooney and Tevez and still perform when brought in. Huntelaar In
Rafinha to Middlesborough??–
A reason why Southgate hasn't moved in for a RB yet is because he is having a look at the olympics and is looking for a young, quick RB.
Rafinha is fitting the bill and is seen only behind Daniel Alves for the National Squad.
HOWEVER a deal is way off because Fc Schalke rate hime very highly and his price will be very very inflated.
BoroKnight– asking you, why not?
To the Spurs fan who is playing championship manager and buyin everyone trust me both Santa Cruz bros Will be playing for Rovers this season.
Rangers will sign Goergias karagiunis from panathikos within a week. Everything is agreed just to put pen to paper. Watch this space
Everton will land antonliy tymoschuk in an 8 million pound deal aswell as,diego milito,alan smith and joao moutinho
I hate to say it but the Barry deal is off. Silva is not in question as Rafa says it will be an English player who can play in 3 different positions. Sadly we're going to Kop for Stuart Downing who is poo !!!!
Barry is a cleverer player than he gets credit for and would have given the team great balance. A midfield of Barry, Masch, Alonso and Gerrard would be an enviable one and would give us a fantastic chance of winning the big head to head games we have faltered in. Rafa will add a world class winger next year and that is when LFC will win the league. Just short this year i,m afraid.
Carlos Cuellar will not be sold, especially to Stoke City. This move would be a huge step down in his career as he would not win any trophies or get European football, he has also stated his love for Glasgow Rangers! Nacho Novo will not be going to Hull as he wants to end his carrer with Rangers. Kris Boyd will move to a German team for £3m! The money we get from Boyd will allow Walter to bring in Stevie Davis who we desperately need! Players who look to be on their way out are Daniel Cousin to a Championship team, maybe for £800,000, Alan Gow to another SPL team, Jean Claude Darcheville could also leave, France or Spain possible destinations. Chris Burke to go out on loan. Walter and Ally will bring in another 2 maybe 3 players which will give the team the strength it needs! Players who dont want to play for the jersey or are only in it for the money should find another club as they are not wanted!
Once a Ger always a Ger!!!!
To the person who thinks that Joe Cole will sign for Villa. Joe Cole has stated time nd again that he has always wanted to play for Chelsea. Also he is a winger and lamps nd deco central mids. Also, CFC would not sell our player of d year. And even if he moved it would be to a cl club, not a uefa cup club. Robinho 2 arrive shortly nd Kaka next season to replace lamps who, sadly, will be leaving next season.
Liverpool are putting a bid to tempt Chelsea to part with Joe Cole. This is the 'player who can play in 3 different positions'. If this fails a bid for Downing will be made.
Arsenal Fans Big News
Arsenal styl have to 15 august to make a bid for either motinho and velso 15million will be enough due to thier clause but everton have equalled this amount for motinho. If we do not sign any of the two players before 15 august then we wil have to play 2o million plus for velso and motinho. i dont think we will get any of these but instead sign ghanian midfielder Annan who is on a trial at arsenal this week he is a good replacement for flamini and blackburn had him on trial lst week but failed to occuir his services. he would cst in da region of 1.5million from stark. with Annan we will sign Micheal johnson from man city who on sunday 10th august rejected a new contract, he will cst in da region of 8million making our last 2 summer signings Annan + Johnson= 9.5 million
ARSENAL 2 WIN DA LEAGUE
O.K Thanks to parry publically stating liverpool are not prepared to pay for barry the aim is now to get both david silva and micheal johnson before the start of the season and allow alonso, voronin and pennant to leave. First with 18mil from barry available benitez will use 10mil to buy johnson thenn allow alonso to go to athletico(hence him saying he could still leave( for around 15mil possibly including a first option on aguero. this will then leave 23 mil available which will then be used on sliva , also leaving some money left. If voronin and pennant also leave he will use the money for milner for cover on the wings. Barry is not a target at the moment any more.
With the American owners now turning the deal down at £18m for G Barry, Benitez will be forced to allow Alonso to move on. Barry will hand in a transfer request hence dropping the cost of the transfer by at least £3m. He will be at Liverpool by next Friday.
As Orange Say "the future is bright" that is for newcastle as they can sign players also can spurs but one team who will go down the drain will be the toffees as they cannot afford to buy any1.joao moutinho will move to the mags and so will seb larssen + coloccini to complete the toon.everton will waste 10 mil on vagner love who like jo for man city will not score goals they both look good but there not because they are playing in the russian league whoopa–dee–do.and also jo's record for corinthians was shocking city fans you need a martins/viduka/owen in your team coz there top class and they are all happy with the mags
Henry 2 Manutf is on sir alex counldnt denie it wen a reporter asked him are u intrested in buyin him and said we have been licked wiv a strkier every dai we are lookin at 1 or 2 options but it think this is a back up plan if they dnt get berbatov becuase spurs are tryin 2 get £30 million thats to much
There will be big changes at ibrox before the deadline, out going will be Broadfoot, Papac, Dailly, Adam, Gow and cousin. this should free up the cash to sign a naismith of sheffield utd, Scott Severin, Davis and Ian Black that will be all the summer dealings with the exception of a right winger depenting on funds and if mcCullough can be shifted on.
