Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Ashley Cole will finally move across London this weekend for a reasonable price of 22m pounds- when you think of SWP at 21m and the geriatric Sheva at 30m, you'd have to say it was a good deal for both teams. They will also sell Reyes for a bargain at 10m to Real Madrid. Arsene doesn't have a budget per se, he tells D Dein he wants a player, Dein takes it to the board and they rubber stamp it. But Arsene knows he can't lose Pires, Bergkamp, Cole, Campbell and Reyes and not replace them, even if Pires was the only one who played a major part last year and he has already been amply replaced by Rosicky.
Reyes has already been replaced- look to see a lot of Theo Walcott after Christmas. Despite the new contract, Arsenal will have Curtis Davies in the next two weeks for 8m pound. Phillipe Lahm is almost a done deal to replace Ashley. Arsene likes Ribery as a player but he's too much of a flake- he may come in January if he doesn't go to Lyon this summer. Arsene doesn't spend stupid money for mediocre players (like Michael Carrick). He will spend stupid money for unlimited potential though, Walcott for example. He's also happy he didn't get Baptista last summer and Reyes to Real Madrid will be a cash only deal- same with Ashley Cole. I think the people that say here that money and players will be exchanged are all Yanks that are used to trading of players rather than transferring.
One point I would like to make to the people that post here- you might have the best information in the world but if you post with web chat room abbreviations like 'u' and scatter your posts with grammatical errors and nicknames that nobody has ever heard of, I will think you are an idiot and so will everybody else. Please, use real words and real names. Thank you.
Juventus News !!!!
Deschamnps will sign the following
cassnno - 8 mil to replace ibrahemavic ( p.s 24.6 million dollar man)
Bousmung - to replace cannnavaro
Fred/carew - from lyon swap for trezeguet plus 3 mil
plus none other then lucis niel! for a region of about 3-6 mil to replace thuram
you might be thinking juve don't have any money but what aboutt he sales from the other players e.g cannavaro and thuram
Arsenal want 16.5pounds for reyes they are ready to part ways with him because rosicky is being played at left , althiugh ribery has commited to OM january might be the date for him to move to emirates stadium come january a young gk will likely be bought to replace lehmann AW will still assess what position he needs badly as he has alot of faith with his young squad, a defender will be bought before the close of the transfer window that is all
Man Utd will sign Tevez for 15million rising to 21million,
man utd will not sign diarra but will take hargreaves and senna. . .also in his eyes are torres and not adriano. .saf is dreaming of torres still[;)]
Get real! Wenger is not going to make any big money signings until next summer. Gunners hope CL revenue and new stadium income will allow them to be more aggressive in the market next year. None of Ribery, Gallas, Baptista or Robinho will sign, and neither will a CD be taken. Wenger has faith in Djorou and Senderos. Maybe only Abidal once the Cashley situation sorts out.
Re: Cole, and the guy that said Arsenal will be stuck as Chelsea will pull the plug. Arsenal will be more than happy if Chelsea withdraw. Cashley's problem was that he felt Gunners valuation of him was too low, well, Gunners have now put a high price for him. Let's see how many other clubs value him at that! And Henry should know better than to make public statements about weakening the team. Trust Wenger, Henry!
Real and Arsenal are thought to be a way apart on their valuations of Reyes so a Real player will be involved in the deal. Mr Beckham has just missed out on the England squad and what better way to get back in than playing in england again. Plus Real have recently stalled on his new contract talks, he has a home not a million miles from arsenals training ground, he's good mates with Henry and most impoirtantly Arsenal have a huge new statium and need bums on seats!
I have to post re Man Utd as the stuff on here is mostly nonsense or copied from the papers. United WILL buy one midfielder and maybe one striker but United are strapped for cash and a striker will only come in if we manage to get good deal on a midfielder.
Torres - the only option we are considering and he wants to come regardless of press conference a few weeks ago. Price around £25m. Athletico really want to sell this transfer window as price will plummet next summer. We are the problem as we need a midfielder more and we must try and get the best quality but at the lowest price. Once the midfield is sorted we will bid depending on how much we pay for the midfielder.
Diarra - first choice but thought we had no chance against Real Madrid. They are trying to buy on the cheap so we are now back in the running. If we get Diarra we will most likely not bid for Torres. Price anywhere between £13m – £18m.
Hargreaves – second choice but only if Bayern sell for £8m or less. If we get him for the right price we will bid for Torres. We will only buy Hargreaves if we can still buy Torres with the remaining money.
Senna – third choice and only as a short term stop gap (1 -2 years). Will strengthen midfield in short term and allow us to buy Torres.
The main problem all summer has been buying two midfielders at the best possible price and therefore allowing us to buy Torres. Hence the long term haggling over Carrick and Kuszczak (now a loan deal to free up further money). Senna is now on hold as Diarra/Hargreaves may be available and both are far better long term options.
We are not the Man Utd of old when we could bid pretty much anything for the right player. We might not have got them being based in rainy Manchester rather than sunny Barcelnoa but we could bid. Not anymore – our spending is far more constricted.
celtic will bring in a series of players some on loan deals! firstly they will bring in juan pablo sorin-lb as his deal with bolton fell through and he sees cl football as a big lure! another defender but a centre back is requierd there are 2 possible in this 1 edmilson of barcalona as he isnt seeing to much first team football in spain or favalli who plays in italy i dont know if it is still inter!! there was speculation of le naylor of wolves but who wants him!! the new midfielders are tommy graveson as another 1 who isnt seeing to much football in spain and wants cl football! and up front there will 2 players but 1 will come they will be roy makaay on loan and daniel ljubjo the most likely being daniel ljubjo for 1.5 m of stuttgart!!1
i cant wait to see the back of petrov as he will go to villa and mo camara who has already went and i hope to see the back of PAUL TELFER i hate that guy.
celtic team next year-
CB-EDMILSON O FAVALLI
CF-MAKAAY OR LJUBJO
CF-ZURAWSKI OR MILLER
WE WILL WIN THE LEAGUE!!!!
I have news for you Tottenham fans - don't expect Mido to return to White Hart Lane. I know he's been linked with a return recently, but he won't be rejoining. Spurs have Robbie Keane, Dimitar Berbatov, Jermain Defoe and youngster Lee Barnard pushing through, while Inter Milan hitman Obafemi Martins will join in a big money move by Tuesday. Mido is going to stay with Roma for the coming season as he is eager to prove his worth with the Serie A club.

Those who continue to post on the hardy perrenial D Kuyt leaving Feyenoord for £10 or £12 mill are fooling themselves. Liverpool have offered £6 mill plus either Kromkamp or Dudek, but apparently not both. They wanted £2.5 mill from Pompey for Jerzy which doesnt seem unreasonable, but they dont rate Kuyt as a £8.5 mill prospect, not on their tight finances at least. Freddy Shepherd values Dirky at £5 -6 mill, doesnt matter what GR thinks as he's freddy's puppet.
Remember Kuyt's performances in Germany?, avergely average at best. He could be a huge success in the Prem, but is no way a nailed on cert like horse faced Ruudy was gonna be.
Liverpool are still it seems looking to offload at lot of bodies this month, so those who keep hoping the Krafts are going to buy the club, or take a controlling interest may be disappointed. Would a club knowing a huge influx of cash is hoving into view be so determined to cut the wage bill?
Shedding Diao, & le Tallec is fine, but why five more players?
Riise had better pull up trees this season if he wants to avoid being on next season's cast offs list, so im told, although it was put more diplomatically.
'Arry is still in the game re Ryan Nelson & very interested. He's filled two of the back four slots which waved opposition players through last year, so the Arsenal defensive mentality is taking shape at Jurassic Park. Blackburn are low on cash & Nelson is happy to move for the pay rise Pompey are mooting. They are increasing the average age significantly but theres two good years in the the new look defense. Matty Taylor was given a very respectable new contract in July, so Nelson should complete the defensive signings.
Tony Adams has settled in well at the club.
Pompey have made known a serious interest in Sully Ali Muntari but have apparently been laughed at for £4.7 mill, if they offer £7 to 7.5 it could well be on. Muntari is looking for some serious dosh but more likely to scupper Pompey's plans is faffing around at way under the transfer asking price.
Ghana's captain Appiah, is also likely to join the prem, looks a Bolton sort of player to me.
For some bizarre reason Inter Milan are listening to offers for Martins as they prefer stikers who have the mobility of milk floats. Pompey are expecting to be jostling in a crowd of clubs, but the more jostling the higher Martin's wage demands. This guy would make a great addition but is probably out of Pompey's financial league.
With all this cash they are spending on wages, why was Dell'Assandro too pricey for Pompey's taste? They didnt even try to keep Routledge for another season's loan.
Petrov's supposed move to Villa Park may not be as nailed on as Pompey thought. MON signed on with Deadly, despite supposedly being told there's only small change to spend, (3.5-5 mill). If the club doesnt change hands, he's made a rickets there. But hes a clever guy. . . .
You gotta keep boogying.

As the clubs mascot(TRUTH!), I no everything there is to know about NUFC'S transfers.
Obafemi Martins will finally come this week
Wayne Bridge will sign and replace Celestine Babayaro
Dirk Kurt will definitly not go to Liverpool and will be a Geordie by September
Thomas Greveson is coming to toon before long but talk of his team-mate, Woodgate is totally rubbish, he is staying put in Madrid
Here is what our team will look like for the new season
We will sell:Ameobi(HOPEFULLY)to Villa and Boumsong to l'OM and Luque will go back to Spain
You heard it fresh from the Magpie-With love, Monty
toon to sell harper to mackems for alnwick in return, toon to get kuyt and bridge by next friday. Mackems will sign phillips reid from spurs and shaktar wonnderkid rutski, smoggies to sign none thats the north east round up.
defoe to go, is a deffinent but not sure where to is reportedly coming out of spurs today. spurs want to bring back mido, but mido could choose newcastle as they are interested.
Apparently it is becomoming "Increasingly likely" that Ashley Cole will stay at Arsenal.
It is also increasingly likely - as we all know - that Reyes will head for Madrid within next couple of weeks, so expect an offer for an attacking left footed player who can pass as well as finish; this will NOT subsequently include Ribery as Wenger is not convinced by his passing. A bid for Downing could happen, as Arsenal were linked heavily a year ago - Reyes' departure should only increase this interest. Finally, dont expect a bid for a CB as we have Toure, Senderos, Djourou and Hoyte. ALL of whom Wenger has confidence in. Have total faith, Arsenal fans; Wenger is extremely confident in winning at least 2 trophies this season.
del piero will either sign for west ham or newcastle on a loan deal by the end of the week. man u will also deffinetly have owen hargreaves before the transfer deadline. But also defoe will be off to man u if spurs accept an offer from man u this week.
apperently ledly king could be the end of the transfer deadline big move. but to one off the big 2 in Spain.
jussi's cleaner has told me that ANELKA is a done deal for BWFC. Also on the cards is Woody on a loan from R.M.
even though norwich dont need any transfers but
Lupoli or R.smith on loan for the season
mcleoad 500k+ 500k if promoted.
norwich may get one or two other season loans for back-up because of injures promblems last year.
Toon news-NUFC will buy Martins(7m), Bridge(3m) and Gravesen(1m)! all transfers will be confirmed next week. other targets are Robert Kovac(1m), Lucas Niell(1m), Matthew Upson(2m), Dirk Kuyt(9m) and striker from division 1, I can't tell who'll be signed of them but GR will go for CB defenetly!
Welyaatz has spoken!
before the transfer window was open 90 percent off my rumors actualy happened apart from mufc this was due to the italy scandel Diarra wont sighn and can you honestly see Fernando Torres at mufc he doesent speak english but the problem ocurs when you see inter millan striking squad Adriano Martins Crespo Imbrahimovic and Cruz five forwards how would get into any team i thought Defoe may sign but totenham wont sell and nobody has showed intrest in Kuyt so i think Mufc wont sighn anybody else apart from Senna from Villareal.
does anyone actuallt think newcastle need graveson, unfortunately we will sign him early next week. We will also sign bridge for 3 mill and martins for around 8 mill. Also if Liverpool cool their interest in Kuyt then expect a bid of around 9 mill as well.
everton will try to complete the signings of steed malbranque from fulham who finally realises he is not worth 50'000 grand a week and will hopefully sign a 4 year deal worth 30'000 grand a week by thursday and also bid for west brom want a way midfielder zoltan gera before the deadline.everton will then turn there attention to andy van der meyde who broke a club rule by drinking 48 hours before a match which was aberdeen.the clubs interested in shany andy pandy are ac milan! juventus and az alkmaar.also sunderland's troubles are getting deeper so nail quinn will turn to lee carlsley to hardin up the black cats midfield.
Yo bruddah GOONERS
