Football Rumours Archive August 12 2009

 

Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.



 
The Lescott saga is not over. Slimy Hughes might think he's almost got his man but just watch out. Moyes has already been in discussion with Wenger about a swap deal for Senderos (plus £18m for EFC) and Alex Ferguson has been monitoring the situation since early July, having asked David Moyes to inform him of developments. Could it be possible that Fergie, the old Master, will come in now offer Everton a deal? He's got the money, and Lescott would obviously prefer to play for United (big club) over City (small club that hasn't actually won anything). I suppose we'll see.

Go on Alex, get your man!
  What is all this hate about Wenger. . ?

Call yourself Arsenal fans. . so we haven't won anything for 4 years. . is it the end of the world. . .?

Obviously your new 'fans?' as you do not remember the 70's when we won the Fairs cup and then the double. We where the top team and then nothing major for 8 years till 1979.

Now look at us. .we have prestige, recognition and start players. . yes star players all thanks to Wenger. . do you like Arshavin ? do you like fabergas, RVP, Walcott, Nasri ? how about the new kids in Gibbs and Wilshire ? all here because of AW.

So go and support a club who wins. . .

We are a self sustained club not a billionaires fantasy club. . be proud of that. .QW is doing his best and if teams like Real Madrid are after him be PROUD that he chose us.

So we are not buying. I agree its frustrating but he has only sold 2 1st teamers and brought in 1 to cover. We still have the same team who was written off last season in December as we where 13 points behind Villa and we stormed the last 1/2.

Let Man C buy everyone. They will be know as a club who brought success. We will be know as a true football team who has style and who plays TOTAL football.

sorry to rant but I read this website for funny transfer rumours and also hopeful rumours posted.

Also to Everton Fans. .forget that guy who wrote that you shud not boo Lescott because he wants to goto a bigger club. . .what does he know. . where did you finish last season ? where did Man c ? so who has more potential. . . . you want loyalty not money grabbing players. .we are the same with Ashley Cole and Adebayor (Toure is different). And what did he say about why you moaning as you brought an up and coming Derby (I think that was the club) player ??? hahaha idiot. . hmmm Derby or Everton. .Champioship or UEFA cup ??? hmmmm. .

well that's it for me. .

only rumour I have (sorry Everton fans) is that Everton are buying a one legged bald headed Swissman. . good for us bad for Everton

In Wenger we Trust in Transfers we HOPE
  In response to. .
Rumour I hear is that Ivan Gazidis has had to step in to prevent Wenger from selling Cesc to Barca.

What a load of made up tosh. Wenger has fought every summer to keep his captain, Ade and Toure went for their attitudes as well as there price tags. Also can Wenger haters please stop ending posts with Gooner and Arsenal fan. .because you obviously aint!!!

Tim Krul to arrive at emirates. Been tracked for 2 years by AW.
Possible bid for Hazard on the cards.
A defender to arrive – AW cards close to chest.
Alex Song to be the ONE DM at Arsenal this season.
  Ive heard that Brian Stock will be signing for Coventry for 2.5million after Coleman has stated that a central midfield player wants to join City and the club are in talks with Coventry
  ARSENAL

long gone the days when arsenal could rely on one of the tightest toughest backline.
are defense is a joke, it is aerily weak and poorly organised!!! GALLAS

hangeland would be awesome but i have doubts. mathew upson micah richards would be good. we should pay everton or city 2 take senderos as he would weaken thier defense. break the bank on a world class defender the only deference between arsenal, united and chelsea is terry and ferdinand.
we have an attack force that cnt b compared with in england. arshavin is deadly and walcot with rvp. cesc in behind. best attack in the league and 1 which could win anything with a good backline and for good sake wenger replace viera 3 years after he left.

get of wenger back no team in the world can compete the way arsenal do with such limited funds. arsenal dnt have money it isn't wengers fear to spend.(we bit) arsenal board need to piss of cos football is run financially now. their morals deserve admiration but im sick of lukin up to lfc cfc and mufc. chamak could be good but not neccassary.

cesc being sold for 25mil is a joke he is one of the best cm in world and is 21 he is worth atleast 50 in todays climate if pussy ronaldo is worth 80 and alonse 30.

diarra or gago from madrid is excitin
  Am a stoke fan. Worried ryan shawcross going to everton. James vaughan plus 3 million. Someone said though lescott would be stupid not take step up. As a neutral have much more respect for everton and still think they will finish above city this year ! Stoke to sign gary o neil and kieran westwood.
  Shawcross – liverpool??? £7 mill. . not enough. .
Ab Faye to Hull do you think we are mad!
someone honestly thinks we would sell our 2 centre backs. . 30m might cover the cost though. . liverpool can have shawcross in exchange for torres. . possibly gerrard. . the only reason hull got orangepyjamas (olyfinjana) is because he has 1 good game to 2 bad games. . .

stoke to sigh– ashton 7 mill (nfortunatly), Ledley 9m with add ons, Wheater– 5m & a n other winger/creative midfielder. . Koumas was mentioned. . apparently in the next 3 weeks we are going to get rid of 6 players, and bring in 4!!! bye bye dead wood
  LEICESTER CITY NEWS!

Leicester are said to be interested in signing Beckford from Leeds for £3.5million, if their offer of £2million for Gillingham's Jackson is unsuccessful.
Leicester are also ready to announce the signing of Nino from Tenerife.
  'Malaysian investors at Cardiff are due to offload David Jones, and his replacement will be none other than Dick Advocaat who today left Zenit St. Petersburg.'

Whoever posted this, I think you need to get up to speed on things. As previously pointed out, Advocaat had a pre–contract agreement to take over the Belgian national side. Unless Cardiff buys out his contract he won't be their new manager.

However, there will be a new man at the helm of Cardiff City soon (David Dein) and a new manager (one of Gordon Strachan, Steve Coppell or Alan Curbishley, have heard that Peter Ridsdale has had talks or is in talks with at least two of these managers at the moment).

Also to the Cardiff fan who slated Willo Flood – Flood is a good player, but he didn't get on with Dave Jones (he was so crap that Celtic signed him, yeah right. .) Wouldn't want to see him sign for one of Cardiff's rivals but good luck to the lad wherever he ends up.

  Rumour I hear is that Ivan Gazidis has had to step in to prevent Wenger from selling Cesc to Barca.

Apparently Arsene feels that the money is just too good to resist.

Wenger is very short–sighted – forget about spending TOO MUCH money in the transfer market. One season out of the Champions League, and arsenal will do a Leeds. If he doesn't spend money, he'll lose Arsenal far more in the long run.

I think Arsenal would be better off without Wenger now, they need a manager with REAL ambition.
  BREAKING NEWS
Rangers will sign 3 players on deadline day. Budget increasing when Celtic are humped by Arsenal.

Chris Brunt – West Brom 3 mil
Mark Renolds – Motherwell 800K
Lewis Nicol – 16 year old wonder boy from Raith Rovers 50K

Man in the know (his da) I've already spent some of the signing on fee. Get in there.

PS Bob Malcolm back to Gers Aye Right try harder than that for pS takes – Tim from Carfin

  To the Man U fan that seemed concerned about the facts. .

1.The Word MOB. . INFORMAL a group of people who are friends or who are similar in some other way: ie Madrid Directors.

2.Man U had the option on Tevez over the two years at an agreed fee of 25Mill this option was no different to a contract. Re unsucessful Argentineans Tevez won the following at OT. Premier League: 200708, 200809
FA Community Shield: 2008
UEFA Champions League: 200708
FIFA Club World Cup: 2008
Football League Cup: 200809

3.VIDIC. City are interested is Vidic ?
  Arsenal transfer news:
wenger will only bring a cb in once senderos has left 2 everton 4 6m, nobody knows which cb wenger will bring in as we all know he does his transfers behind the scenes but he will spend a maximum of 7.5m. he wiil bring in a dmc 4 12.5m and he will bring chamakh in 4 7.5m and silvestre will go the other way to sweetern th deal. gallas, rosicky and almunia will all leave next summer and hangeland,arda turan and krul will replace them. gael clichy could leave next summer 4 a huge fee 2 r.madrid and pedro botelho will replace him after getting a permit.
  To all you Everton mugs winging about Lescott wanting to leave. Why are you slagging of your one of you best players just because he wants to better himself – I thought only Spurs fans done this. Lescott would have been a half decent player whoever he joined so stop trying to make out any different you dumb scousers.
Man City have cash to burn and are trying to buy their way to the top , so you can't blame anybody trying to join them. Where is Evertons ambition?
It was ok for you to buy one of wolves best upcoming players a few years ago!

Lescott + Upson to man city
Toni + Cisse to whu
bentley to sunderland
pavlychenko to liverpool
  It was always only ever going to be a matter of time that lescott realised that staying at everton was a big waste of time and hand in a transfer request. Surely now alex fergi wanna be moyes has to sell or risk having a very good player very unhappy and devaluing himself by putting in crap performances and city snaping him up in jan for 1/2 the fee offered now. My advice to moyes is put up and shut up and just agree that if city want your stars we'll have your stars. Anyway on to rumours. . . . .

City to sign before midnight 31st august

LESCOTT
MAICON
UPSON
NEILL
TOURE (YAYA)
  Have to say, all these Arsenal fans signing off with 'In Arsene we trust' sound about as sensible as the religious whack–jobs they're imitating!

Truth is, Wenger's on an ideological mission. Arsenal have become his plaything, and he has no interest in spending money, but proving his point to the footballing world. Personally, I think we should get rid of him ASAP, but I know a lot of the 'believers' won't like to hear that.

Anyway, the news I hear is that Ivan Gazidis is in Munich at the moment, but not negotiating with Bayern.

Story is supposedly Neven Subotic, and Edin Dzecko.
  To all the hopefull man united fans out there of which i am one, there will be no more transfers this summer. I would bet my house with anyone that may say other wise. Wish it wasn't true but they looked pretty good against chelsea today. Should be a great season. Enjoy people. –PRECOG–
  I am good friends with theo walcotts uncle and he has asured me that man city have put in a firm bid for him a bid which arsene wenger is taking very seriously as he wishes 2 add a world class striker 2 his attack and feels the 27 million offered by city can boost his cash for a striker.
remember you heard it here first.

the man with a plan!!
  Preston North End want another CM, a ST and a CB before the window shuts.
Irvine is reportedly after:
DJ Campbell (Leicester City)
Simon King (Gillingham)
Liam Miller (QPR)
Jack Rodwell (Everton)
Victor Anichebe (Everton)
The board however will only give him a maximum 3 players to buy out of that list though.
  First time poster here: To the guy who talked about Mike Ashley:

"Sad times for us Newcastle United fans. How that joke of an owner became a billionaire I'll never know."

Let's have it right the reason why you are where you are is because the man you vilify, made the mistake of listening to fickle geordies who dared to question Sam Allardyce, who subsequently led a team in a worse position to safety at the expense of Newcastle. He brought in the Messiah AFTER bringing in Wise and he walked (true to type), he brought in the legend Shearer who proved he weren't up to the job, all because he was trying to appease the fans.

Don't criticize Mike Ashley toon faithful – take a long look at yourselves if you want to know where the blame lies and furthermore I reckon at least 80% of the footballing public share this view – comments on this are most welcome.

Anyway on to my team, I understand that Liverpool are considering bids for both Sol Campbell and Sylvain Distin in light of the loss of 5 first team defenders in recent weeks.

If Liverpool receive a good offer for Dossena then Benitez may reignite hie interest in Royston Drenthe on a loan/permanent deal.

In terms of defensive midfielders I understand Benitez is happy with Mascherano, Lucas, Spearing, Plessis & Gerrard though a bid for Suarez, Silva or Rodriguez may be on the cards as an attacking midfield option.

On the striker front Rafa is undecided as to whether reinforcemnets are required and he may be prepared to follow up his interest in Guiza, RVN, Fabiano or Trezeguet.
46 – The Doctor
  Fergie will use nanis injury to bring in another player:

he will sign, silva– 26 mil

and either villa or aguero in january for 32million

everton will bring in:

michael ball–free
rasmus elm–3 mil
senderos–loan

but evertons biggest success of the summer will be keeping hold of lescott
  To all my fellow Gooners

Marouane chamack will be an arsenal player before the window closes. After his goal in ligue 1 against lens, his manager laurent Blanc told him to wave good by to the fans.

everton will not sell lescott to manchester city, and senderos won,t move to everton. Don't be suprised to see senderos as part of the deal to sign Brede Hangeland from fulham.

Matuidi will not be moving to arsenal because his club won't want to lose two of thier key players without replacement (gomis & matuidi).

jose murinho have asked patrick viera if he wants to stay or go. Hopefully he would leave with a coaching job waiting for him after retirement in arsenal.

Nuru sahin and Arda turan will move to arsenal next summer. it is said that a deal has been struck for the duo.

In arsene we trust.
  West ham –

Hunt and partner still in running despite denials from spokesman.
Luca Toni enquiry been made nothing further Bayern want 3 mill fee.
Gudjonsen nothing new to report.
Arab party circling have a name at long last NASSER A`l KHARAFI IS THE FRONTMAN.
AND TOLD AS YET NO BID FOR UPSON.
Still being told cb holdings desperate and takeover imminent

from your west ham friend
  First game of the season and a win for Walsall!
Anyway on to rumours,and there is an unbeleivable
one floating round, which is that Walsall are trying to bring Jorge Leitao back to Bescot!

Transfers gunna happen

Matt Upson–W Ham–Villa–O'Halloran & £7m
Tuncay–Boro–W Ham– £4m
David Silva–Valencia–Arsenal–£16m
Simeon Jackson–Gills–Fulham–£1.5m
K–L Huntelaar–Real Mad–Tottenham–£18m
R.Snodgrass–Leeds–Newcastle(need players)–£500k
  I was the person who first posted that Rafa Benitez is looking at Ryan Shawcross in March and will he has already placed a £5m bid. Tony Pulis was in denial that his star defender was targeted by a Champions League side however he wanted closer to the £8m mark. Ryan has found out about this and has asked Tony to allow him to move in order to further his career. Shawcross will be a Liverpool player by the end of the week. He will sign a 5 year deal worth £40k a week. That will leave only £2m left in the budget and with Andrea Dossena almost out the door to Fenerbahce, he will bring in £5m, Rafa is going to look at Diego Capel and will bid £15m, with the £7m going now and the £8m in January. Rafa's final signing will be Alvaro Negredo on loan with a view to a permanent signing for £13m next summer
  Massive news coming out of the Cardiff City stadium. Cardiff City will hold a press conference this morning (Monday August 10 2009) to announce a rather substantial financial investment from the Far East (Malaysia) following Peter Risdale and Alan Flitcrioft visited the country last week.

As a result expect some larger than expected moves in the Transfer market before the end of August.

Hope this is put up before ASAP.

Cheers
  To the person that said the following:

"DIC(Dubai International Capital) are in talks with Tom Hicks and George Gillet about purchasing Liverpool , though talks are only at an early stage."

It has been stated previously that the American Owners are not interested in negotiating a deal with DIC as the Arab private government vehicle do not trust their valuation of the club, and also the American Owners are hesitant as they were offended by their previous meetings.
I really do hope that something can be struck between the two tho.

Do you happen to have any further information on this????
  To the rather sad individual who wrote the following.


Lpool will bid for villa and valbuana of marseille before transfer window closes

there is plenty of cash to spend i work in the accounts dept.

there was going to be an offer for silva made early in the window but the whole alonso thing came up, this deal has given the club enough cash for villa and the fact aquilani only cost 4.25 up front has also meant there will be spare cash for the attacking frenchman

purchases are also not dependant on any more players leaving, the money raised from departures will be used in jan with a huge shock coming to anfield if things don't go to plan for his current club.

well clearly you don't work in the accounts Dept at LFC, because LFC DONT have an accounts Dept.So please don't come on here telling lies.Liverpool FC's accounting and financial affairs are all carried out by a firm of accountants called KPMG.I know because my Mrs works for them and personally holds the caseload for 2 premiership club's.

As a genuine rumours I am reliably informed that Sunderland are looking to bring in Distin and prelimanary work as been done to bring in Tuncay from Middlesborough
  Just to get a few things straight! There is no way Man City will sign Vidic even if they paid 100 million. I don't know who keeps putting these so called "rumours" on here but they clearly don't live in England, understand football or have the faintest idea about Fergie. As if he'd sell his best CB to his City neighbours (I was gonna say rivals but that's a bit over the top). Plus Vidic has a calf injury so won't be gong anywhere for a while even if he wanted too.

As for any other big money signings by Chelsea, Man U or Liverpool, Ray Wilkins summed up all these clubs positions yesterday when he said Real have inflated the market (and wage expectations, Pato wanted over 200k per week) so any other big money moves to these clubs are unlikely until the market calms down. Expect a few acquisitions in the Jan window but for now the most you'll get is Turners' move to the Reds once a price can be agreed between Rafa and Brown, possibly a last minute scoop in the defensive by City but as I said but not Vidic and definitely not Terry (whoever said a 90% chance is in dreamland), and perhaps a few smaller but interesting moves by Everton, Villa, Spurs and maybe Arsenal to reinforce key areas.
  Man United news""""

Sir Alex knows his team need another attacker and that's why he will make a move for Ajax Star Luis Suarez in this week. .no Villa no Aguero. forget them. they are affordable but Sir Alex doesn't want to spend that much on one player. .
and after seeing a less convincing Foster on goal against Chelsea Sir Alex will also make move for his long term target Villareal keeper Diego Lopez. .

so
ins will be

Suarez 15mil
Diego Lopez 15 mil

outs no one.
  Manchster United Rumours:

– David Silva continues to be linked with Manchester United and there are many sources are suggesting it is a matter of Ferguson trying to get the price closer to £20,000,000. Liverpool were rumoured to be in the running for the Spaniard but due to the lack of finances at the club, have been out priced by rivals Manchester United.

– Sir Alex Ferguson will reignite his interest in Franck Ribery this week with it being reported the Red Devil's boss will tempt Bayern Munich with a reported £45,000,000 offer!

– Rumours are also circulating that Manchester United will launch a £40,000,000 bid for Sergio Aguero should they fail to sign French ace Ribery from Bayern Munich!

Now, for the non high profile signings:

– United will offer £3,500,000 for Bursaspor striker Sercan Yildrim.

– United have been monitoring the progress of current Shakhtar winger, Willian and are prepared to make an offer in the region of £5,000,000.

– Negotiations are still ongoing between Manchester United and Gremio about young starlet Douglas Costa but Man U are not willing to meet the £20,000,000 asking price!

All other transfer rumours:

– Liverpool were rumoured to be interested in signing Valencia frontman David Villa but due to lack of finances and Valencia manager Emery proclaiming the player is unavailable at any price, rumours have subsided.

– Chelsea remain in talks with A.C. Milan about Andrea Pirlo but the Italian giants are reluctant to let him go.

– The situation is similar with Alexandre Pato, with Chelsea rumoured t have offered a "mounstrous" offer.

– Arsenal remain locked in negotiations with Bordeaux about frontman, Chamakh, who Arsene Wenger believes is the ideal replacement for Emanuel Adebayor.

– Wenger is also said to be "extremely interested" in Fulham hardman Hangeland who would replace new Manchester City centre–back, Kolo Toure.

– It appears Manchester City are the closest out of a number of Premiership clubs to securing the signature of Portuguese defensive midfielder Miguel Veloso with a fee of £14,000,000 on the cards.

I'll be back with more rumours later today!
  To the ill–informed person who posted this:

'Pavit PogrebnyakZenit St Petersburg to blackburn£9 million'

1. His name is Pavel.

2. He signed for Stuttgart last week so it's quite unlikely he'll sign for Blackburn now.

Get your facts right before you post – that goes out to everyone. A little bit of research means that everyone else won't think you're an idiot.
  This message is to 'the big cheese' or should i call you 'the mouldy cheese'

your comments are as follows:
Wenger will not spend any money until they are through to the CL group stages. This is just common sense. They need to make £20m ish from player sales every season until the stadium is paid off. He can't come out and say it officially as the fans would get fed up and not buy season tickets etc. Wenger has £20m to spend if they beat Celtic and nothing if they don't.

What a load of poppy–cock, wenger would not work under those kind of constraints. He never does transfer business when he has a big game coming up like Celtic away, also Wenger stated the other day that most transfer now occur in the last 3 days of the window because he has made his value of the player required and now its a waitng/gambling game with the selling club
ie Bordeaux want 12m–euros for Chamakh arsenal have offered 7m–euros, Bordeaux try and push the price up, but the nearer the transfer deadline comes the bigger risk they lose him for nothing. .

from the cheese eating mouse
  To the guy who said this:–
To the person that said about City going for Vidic. . I think you're right but my source says they will offer cash + player. It doesn't say which player it will be though. I'm hoping that if this rumour is true, We'll get around £40m for Vidic (knowing City probably more) + Richards then Richards will replace Vidic and United can then use the money to buy Ribery and also have money to spend in January."

Sorry to disappoint you mr manure but Ribery will be going to Madrid next season. .deal has been done between Munich and Madrid!!!
  BREAKING NEWS sources from leicester city fc are saying Peter Leven for 500k and Dean Lewington for 1m are to join leicester this week.
  A mate of mine from uni who is doing Sports Science is on a physio placement at Liverpool and he bumped into Martin Petrov at their training complex. Apparently the wheels are in motion for him to make a £6 mil move from Man City. City's midlfeild is now far to congested so he is the one to go in order to make some room. You heard it here first!!!!
  To the guy that said this:
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

"Everton will keep Lescott now . . but still need some cover due to injuries. Moyes is sick of other teams 'gazumping' him after scouting so is keeping the following quiet:

Defence: Steven Taylor (if Senderos deal falls through) + Michael Ball

Midfield: Rasmus Elm or Nigel ReoCoker

Wing/Striker: Victor Obinna

Once Arteta, Jags and the Yak return. . Everton will challenge the top four and leave moneybags Villa, Citeh and Spurs in their wake . . AGAIN!"
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

SIGH! Well if Moyes is trying to keep the above quiet, he's made a pish–poor job of it seeing as all those rumours have been reported in the press at different times during the last month.

If people are going to make things up, at least be original. Copying from the papers and pretending that you have inside information is just so pointless.

Anyway, it looks like Joleon Lescott is going nowhere. Or does it? Mark Hughes has wasted weeks on Joleon, and now he faces starting the season with a shambolic defence. This is a gut feeling, but if City haven't sorted anything out by next week, I expect Hughes to come in with a final plea that Everton and City iron out a deal. In such an event, I would expect Moyes and Bill to take City to the cleaners and grab around the £28m mark.
  Every time I come on this site all I hear is Liverpool going to buy Silva, villa and Augero I have been hearing these rumours since the window begun i am bored of hearing them now literally we have all heard them millions of times can we stop with them!

right for the rumours

Chelsea

Buy!

Luis Fabiano – anchilotti is known to be a fan of him! hence why AC have been interested in him he has been tracking him for a few years
Pato – anchelotti knows the potential of this young lad so knows what he can produce in the future!

Sell

Anelka – his performance in the charity shield was diabolical with anchilotti bringing in some strikers he needs to offload a couple with di santo and sinclar being loaned out it gives some room but with pato and fabino coming in he doesn't want to much competition
Deco – will be sold to inter as he doesn't feature in his plans
TERRY – Will not be sold he needs champions league football to make sure he can get into the england squad!

Liverpool

Buy

NOT VILLA, SILVA OR AGUERO!

they will buy Ashley young, he is young has the potential and is English most importantly he has the ability to open up the defence for Torres and get balls in from the wing

Michael turner again English and is more than a capable defender so will give a strong back line!

There is the only signing I can see them making!

Sell

the usual rumours on here!

Man U

Only potential one i can see is bringing in Robben but it won't be a purchase it will be a one season loan with the option to buy at the end of the season.

Sell

none!

Arsenal

buys

lee catermole arsene is known to be a fan of him with his team being primarily based on foreign players with a few exceptions with a couple of younger players who will take a few years before they will be up to the Champions league he needs to bring in English players catermole as we all know is more than capable of keeping up with the high based football that the top 4 play!

sell

arsene knows that the squad can't have to much more shock departures because he needs to keep the vast majority of his squad in tack! only potenial could be eboue with the A cup of nations coming up!

these are only my views i could be completely wrong but that's how i see the market going

  RANGERS LATEST. .

IN

Tonel (Sporting Lisbon) £1.2m
Gomis (Dundee Utd) £800,000
Ball (Free transfer)
Lovenkrands (Free Transfer)

Interesting one this but Smith is watching with interest the Derek Riordan situation at Hibs. A bid of around £600,000 could be enough to tempt Hibs to part with their wayward star and Smith feels his disciplarian style is just what Riordan needs to sort himself out, and at the same time solving Rangers problem left midfield slot.

CoBro
  Celtic info from a reliable source.

IN

Gomis – Dundee Utd £1m
Diamond – Aberdeen £500k – (raising to £750k)
McCormack – Cardiff £4m – (TM not happy with way things have started with Fortune)

OUT

McCourt – Aberdeen – Loan
McGinn – St Johnstone – Loan
Donati – Bolonga/Chievo – £2m
  Kasper Schmeichel will sign for Notts County this week, as well as Greg Cameron and Danny Jackman.
They also have a number of players on trial, with the potential of a couple of big name signings joining before the end of the month.
  Swindon town are in talks with bristol city striker lee trundle. Leagtue 1 rivals Walsall are also closely wstching the situation.
  Everton will keep Lescott now . . but still need some cover due to injuries. Moyes is sick of other teams 'gazumping' him after scouting so is keeping the following quiet:

  InsideR, I normally like to read your posts, but your last one gave me pause for thought. .

"Well all I can say is expect a player to come in on the transfer deadline (you might be surprised)"

I can only infer that you don't know who we are signing – it seems a bit of a strange post – i expect more from you sunny boy!!! ;)

I hear that the Villa deal is close to completion, the main stumbling block is the UK (the winter season is fast approaching and he is not a fan of our weather), and the tax laws – 50% of your wages going to Mr Brown is not high on Villas agenda!

Thanks for tuning in – bobsureuncle
  Hi,was at a wedding on friday in a liverpool hotel and Fernando Torres was at the hotel too,i was talking to him asking him were liverpool going to sign silva as all the speculation on here says we are and he was laughing saying i will have to wait and see ,make of that what u like but i seem to of got the impression that we will actually sign him,i also asked him about aquilani and he said he is a good player BUT xabi is a very big loss to liverpool!
  Arda turan and nuri sahin to arsenal next season, reports coming from turkeys national press claim the deals have been done, this will see cesc and theo head off to pastures new, cesc to barca and theo to liverpool who'll be the new premier league champions.
  The sudden death of Daniel Jarque from heart failure during training is shocking and very, very sad. He was a player well regarded and his name appeared on this site on a number of occasions linked with EPL clubs. He was 26 years old. My coffee tastes very bitter this morning and I'm reflecting that every now and again tradgey hits and we count our blessings whilst trying to make sense of the unthinkable. But, it's happened before: Antonio Peurta, Marc Vivien Foe and Phill O'Donnell. Don't know what else to say. . RIP
  RedReport
Liverpool hav signed Aquilani and know want to bring in a fourth choice CB. Turner is first option as he is English but Hull want 12 million for him with Liverpool willing to offer nothing above 8. Rafa will consider offering a player on loan to sweeten the deal for Hull and is considern Vorinin as Rafa is unsure of his ability to perform in the English game and won't mind sending him to Hull for 5 months to prove himself in the top flight. Liverpool will also offer Hull a choice of Kelly San Jose or Ayala as cover for CB on loan. Hull will only take up this option if they fail to sign a replacment in time.
Spearing is begging Rafa to give him a chance to prove himself in the BPL which he is considern with Aqualini out for 2 months. Defour is lined up in case Lucas chooses to leave.
  DIC(Dubai International Capital) are in talks with Tom Hicks and George Gillet about purchasing Liverpool , though talks are only at an early stage. Michael Turner will sign this week for 8m and also Liverpool are set to bid for Simon Church of Reading a bid of 1m is being disscused
  The Dark Owl – You say Turner is definitely going to Liverpool for £4m, does the fact that £6m has already been rejected and Hull won't take less than £12m, make your rumour rather unlikely ?

  I've seen Shevchenko walking into the main reception at the walkers stadium as Mandaric says he will provide his wages. COME ON LEICESTER!
  No rumour but I believe Fulham against Bury in a League Cup tie were the first team to field an entire team including subs, of foreign players and not Arsenal.
  David Ngog will join Sheffield Wednesday on loan this coming week.
  Well to whoever suggested this–

Chelsea will sign one more player even though Ancelotti said wuold not sign anymore players. That stricker will be Ageuro. He will sign for £45millon. We will then sign another player in January. Most likely a world class midfeilder. Robben, Silva and even a surprise move for Deigo. They would cost 20million, 23million and 27million

Well that would be a surprise move for Diego seeing he signed for Juve weeks ago
  Lfc real rumours guaranteed!

Liverpool will be maiking bids this week for valbuena of marseille, turner of hull and a striker with a value of £15 million. fact!
  Jamie McCombe and Adriano Basso will be Cardiff players by the end of this week.

Yes folks, we're signing Levi Strauss
  In the Sunday People it says Notts County are talking to Dennis Wise . . that's a joke right? Anybody else heard about this?
  To the person that said about City going for Vidic. . I think you're right but my source says they will offer cash + player. It doesn't say which player it will be though. I'm hoping that if this rumour is true, We'll get around £40m for Vidic (knowing City probably more) + Richards then Richards will replace Vidic and United can then use the money to buy Ribery and also have money to spend in January. .
  My Brother works at the West Ham training ground and he has heard that West Ham will definately sign Toni and Gudjohnsson this week. But what has not be reported is they have bid for the talented creative Peruvian midfielder Anderson Cueto and are confident of getting him. COYI.
  Liverpool to sign villa in week fee agreed with valencia inside information from the top. The titles coming home number 19
  Celtic will put Paddy Mccourt and nail mcginn to Aberdeen on loan,James Mcfadden 2.5 mil by next week also Zander diamond from Aberdeen.Mcgeady going nowwhere,a vital player for Mogga.Rangers could sign Darren mackie as novo could be out for months also Rangers are in for Darren Barr of Falkirk.

  Forest will officially announce a trio of defenders next week as Davies aims to complete his jig saw. John Harley (perm), Zak Whitbread (perm) and Calum Davies,(season loan)Whitbread and Harley could be announced as early as Monday while Davies is expected to be announced later in the week.

Rumours about Tyson leaving are true, Coventry have enquired and know the figure needed to make it happen.

Notts County have contacted the club about loaning them Mcleary but this has been refused.
  ANFIELD RUMOURS
Liverpool will NOT sign David Villa the price quoted from the mestalla is something we simply cannot afford.
David Silva will however sign for LFC in january. Only other big news is that Kun Aguero will be a liverpool player but won't be signed till next summer – (pre contract already signed).
COME ON YOU RED MEN !!!!!

  Im friends with mark beevers(sheff wed) brother. hes told me that everton and tottenham are both mulling over making a offer for him but are both only wanting to pay 2.5 mill for him with wednesday wanting nearer 4 mill.
  >>. .but Sneijder turned down Inter when he
>>was asked to be part of the Eto'o/Ibrahimovic
>>deal, as he wants to play in the Premiership.

Sneijder could not have been part of any deal involving Eto'o and Imbrahimovic as the transaction involved Internationale and Barcelona – and not Real Madrid who Sneijder playes for.

  Please stop refering to managers by the initial of the name e.g. SAF Sir Alex Ferguson, MON Martin O'neil.

Also, stop listing unrealistic rumours. Infact, you have to question whether some of you actually know what a rumour is! suggesting chelsea will buy Diego when he has just signed for Juventus is not a rumour but a blatant lie, fuelled by playing a league on fifa or champman!

Now for a fact, Man Utd will never buy anyone from Real Madrid, as that is like giving back the enemy some money for Ronaldo. it will never happen!

Man Utd are holding out for more interest on Ribery. If it looks like he is staying in Germany he'll opt out to the best offered contract. With Man Utd losing out on Benzema, Eto'o and not getting anywhere with Aguero the you can bet they will do all that is possible to get him.

Also, if you're a betting man, put money on Chelsea to win the charity sheild and Man Utd to win the league.

Happy Easter!
  Everton will this week swoop for niko krankjar from pompey in a ten million pounds deal.
  All this talk of mega money being spent by any of the top 4 is nonsense. Fergie and Ancelotti have both said that there will be no new signings this year. They both feel that they have strong enough squads and will save their cash for January if needed. There seems to be a game of chess being played. Every squad in the top 4 is weaker than last year and with the ridiculous prices being banded around (due to Real Madrid and Man City) they are thinking that they might as well wait until January or next year when (if) things calm down – unless another top 3 manager makes the 1st move (not Arsenal as their squad is a lot weaker and Wenger does not like to buy more than 3 key players a season).

Rafa had said that Johnson was his last big name signing but that was before Xabi left. This means that he had little cash before and only has roughly the remainder of the Xabi sale to play with. The deal was £25m up front (all borrowed/loaned by Real Madrid), £5m next season and £4m if they win the league etc.
£17m was given to Roma upfront (they need the cash as they would £30m in the red due to missing out on the champions league this year) plus £2m signing on fee. This leaves about £8m. Michael Turner was wanted but not at the £12m quoted. Rafa offered £4.5m as a 1st offer and was happy to go to £6m. Sol Campbell is being thought about but any defender who comes will have to be happy with being 4th choice. Also, if they are English as this would free up a CL space for another foreigner (ie dropping Sami last year). If no–one offers for Voronin he will be 2nd choice striker this season.

Wenger will not spend any money until they are through to the CL group stages. This is just common sense. They need to make £20m ish from player sales every season until the stadium is paid off. He can't come out and say it officially as the fans would get fed up and not buy season tickets etc. Wenger has £20m to spend if they beat Celtic and nothing if they don't.

the big cheese
  I have heard that Fulham have been offered Stephen Appiah (so have many other clubs) by his agent. Fulham are short of DM players so are seriously considering giving him a trial. They are worried that he has been a free agent for almost a year now and wonder why no–one else has signed him. Now they are through to the next round of the Europa league they will also go for a defender but I have no names yet.

Last season the FA signed a deal to bring in an extra £20m per club in TV rights. Where has this extra cash gone?? No–one is spending.
the big cheese
  To The Bodymoor Mole,
how could schneider turn down inter as part of the etoo / ibrahimavic deal? He plays for Real Madrid, not Barcelona!!

United to look at a winger now that nani is out. Robben is a very likely option.
  I was in company on Saturday night in nth. London and football transfers were very much the talking point, who was coming, going, useless, undervalued , overrated and where we all thought the make up of the top half a dozen prem. would consist.
Man. U. were thought to be 3,no Ronaldo or Tevez. Chelsea to be 2, Liverpool to be champs, grrrrr.
Arsenal 4, Villa 5, Man c 6, TH 7, no surprise here. Interesting that over the weekend, after our discussions, that Wenger said that Villa were more likely to challenge the top 4 when a comment that MON had enquired about Theo. Walcott as a direct buy or just a loan for the season was said to be in the air. Does Wenger know more than we all realise? Walcott would fit MON's plans , ideas to a tee. All we can do is wait and see, but general opinion was that it would suit both Arsenal and Villa if the move came to fruition.
  After the defeat against Chelsea Sir Alex has realised that he needs to add quality to the squad as Berbatov will not score more then 15 goals a season. He used to score 23 at spurs but he took penalties.
He will sign David Silva for £25 million. Fergie likes him as he is versitile. He can play left midfield, central midfield and support striker.
HE will sign Jrmy Toulalan for £20 million he is the player united need as fergie has given up on Hargreaves.
He will also sign David Villa for £40 million, he is a goal scorer and him and Rooney can strike a great partner ship.

Trust me on this one =)
  Lpool will bid for villa and valbuana of marseille before transfer window closes

there is plenty of cash to spend i work in the accounts dept.

there was going to be an offer for silva made early in the window but the whole alonso thing came up, this deal has given the club enough cash for villa and the fact aquilani only cost 4.25 up front has also meant there will be spare cash for the attacking frenchman

purchases are also not dependant on any more players leaving, the money raised from departures will be used in jan with a huge shock coming to anfield if things don't go to plan for his current club
  "Chelsea will sign one more player even though Ancelotti said wuold not sign anymore players. That stricker will be Ageuro. He will sign for £45millon. We will then sign another player in January. Most likely a world class midfeilder. Robben, Silva and even a surprise move for Deigo. They would cost 20million, 23million and 27million."

Who ever wrote this is a tit. Diego recently moved to Juventus so wouldn't move to Chelsea in January.

>MUFC to sign Silva and maybe a few more youngsters that no–one has heard of.
>LFC won't make any more signings unless Rafa feels he needs to in January.
>CFC will sign Pato, but expect it to be last minute
>AFC to sign Matuidi, Viera and Chamakh (spelling)
  Liverpool news

After completing signings of Alberto Aquilani and Glenn Johnson,Benitez will make one final signing of a winger. Contrary to reports Micheal Turner will not be signed and Rafa will make do with his reserve players after they impressed against Athletico.The wingers Rafa has in sight:
In order of preference:

Ashley Young–25m–30m (pricey but best bet)
David Silva 30–35m (too high)
Van der vaart 10m (cheap option and class act)

Depending on funds provided Rafa will make the possible signing.
