Chelsea will sign Kaka and Ronaldinho. Scolari wants Kaka more than anything, and Ronaldinho is eager to team up with Big Phil whom he knows well. With Scolari coming Lampard will move to Inter with Ashley Cole.
Liverpool Rumours: –
Stuart Downing has agreed terms with LFC and the signing will be announced as soon as legal.
Alan Shearer will not be joining Blackburn as manager, as he told the BBC in an interview that, although he is flattered to have been offered an interview, he has every intention of honouring his pundit contract with the BBC, and anyway, it is common knowledge that there is only one club that he's destined to manage. The man who will take over is Sam Allardyce. Sam will only take a few staff members this time as Blackburn cannot afford huge wages for his extensive backroom staff building. Rovers are a very similar club to Bolton in size and resources and they believe he can emulate the same success he had with Bolton. I am loathe to losing Sam and having him take over at our rivals, the I. n. b. r. e. d. s. A concerned Bolton fan.
Ricardo Quaresma – Porto
Frank Lampard – Chelsea
Ricardo Carvalho – Chelsea
Amantino Mancini – A. S. Roma
Alberto Aquilani – A. S. Roma
David Villa – Valencia
Samuel Eto'o – FC Barcelona
Deco – FC Barcelona
Adriano – Loan Return
Acquafresca – Loan Return
Hernan Crespo – A. C. Milan
David Suazo – A. S. Roma/Sevilla
Santiago Solari – Benfica
Oliver Dacourt –?
Dejan Stankovic – Liverpool/Manchester City
Patrick Viera – Portsmouth/Arsenal
Nicolas Burdisso – Juve
Marco Andreolli – A. S. Roma
Pele – A. S. Roma – Loan
Arsenal ins: Samir Nasri–12 million (so all you sad Liverpool fans can get realistic seeing as he has practically signed for us), Aaron Ramsey–5 million (all but done deal, haha UNITED and Everton), Shay Given–3 million, possibly David Villa depending on whether or not Cesc can persuade Wenger to go through with it, in which case he would definitely come as he has made it clear his first choice club would be the Gunners, so get over yourselves Chelsea, you will lose out.
Man UNITED ins: UNITED will have to resort to their third choice of right back signings, being Philip Lahm, as their first choice, Dani Alves, has already snubbed them in favour of a move to Barcelona, and your second choice, Sergio Ramos has basically said thanks but no thanks to your interest, so Lahm will be signed for 8–10 mil. It is anyones guess as to whether Ronaldo will go to Madrid or not, but if he does Quaresma, who plays identically to Ronaldo, will be brought in straight away as a replacement for 20 mil. The final signing will be Luis Fabiano of Sevilla for 25 mil.
Chelsea ins: Having already sorted out the right back crisis with the signing of Jose Bosingwa, Chelsea will now raid Barcelona. Deco has practically signed for 10–15 million, as a replacement for the departing Essien who will leave for Inter. Ronaldinho has practically begged new boss Scolari to rescue him from his FC Barcelona nightmare and Scolari will strongly look into Ronaldinho to replace the departing Lampard who will also leave for Inter, the fee will be around £20 million, which will knock Manchester City right out of the race to sign him. The final major signing will be Samuel Eto'o for £30 million to replace the practically departed Drogba who will leave for AC Milan.

MASSIVE Arsenal news:

From very reliable source.
The Hammers will be fairly quiet this Summer, with so many big names to return from injury most of the last seasons first XI will be strengthen from within. Faubert, Dyer, Bellemy, Parker and Ashton to all hopefully have an injury free year. In addition the progress of youngsters Stech, Tompkins, Sears and Collinson will be a big boost for the squad.
That said the following should happen;
Some of the rumours on here must be from 15 year olds on their lunch breaks playing fantasy football.
Firstly Scolari had been sounded out nearly two weeks before Euros which shows all the Ancelotti stuff was rubbish.
Kenyon is in Milan trying to offload Drogba to Milan and use Shevchenko as a make weight for Kaka. Sheva is a big bit of bate as High Ranking Board member Godfather of Sheva's kid.
Kaka is in Sao Paulo at the moment and will be spoken to at length upon return.
Expect Ronaldinho, Deco, Queresma, and Lampard to be confirmed as new signings/contract after July first when Phil starts at Chelsea.
Other possibilities are Ribery, Henry (Abramovich long time admirer) and Eto'o (Although Chelsea may back off if Kaka is allowed to leave.
Expect Chelsea to also announce the plans for a new 65,000 seater stadium on the site of old gas works 2 miles south of Stamford Bridge. Name possibly Samsung Stadium in a deal similar to that of Arsenal and Emirates.
To all the peole saying that LFC are going to sign Nasri trust it is a lie look at this website it is a pre contract agreement youngguns. wordpress. com/2008/06/13/Nasri–has–pre–contract–agreement–to–join–Arsenal/and LFC have no money they have to sell to buy

Sorry about my poor English. I am from Greece and my father works at Panathinaikos F. c. they are very close to bring Pablo Aimar and Havier Saviola to Greece.
Just a small note to bring the Everton fan back to reality. Djibril Ciise will not be signing for Everton. Yes he still has his house in Frodsham and the reason he is moving furniture in there is because he rents it out in the winter and moves back in during the Summer because he still has many friends in the area and his wifes family still live close by in Wales.

Cristiano Ronaldo will stay at United for another season or two. Fergie will target three big players this Summer being Sergio Ramos, Miguel Veloso and Karim Benzema. Very good source.
Arsenal will sign;
Goalkeeper– Either Frei or Coupet
L Back– no need best left back in the Premiership (Clichy)
R Back– no need best right back (Sagna)
C Back– Wenger said that he will not buy a new centre back becuase his bis for zapata was rejected and will not go higher
Midfield– Nari and Ramsey maybe Yaya
Foward– Santa cruz will come into replace the obviously leaving Adebayor and he has publicly stated that he would like to join Arsenal and maybe David Villa.
Rememeber you heard it hear first
Man United have agreed a contract with Dmitar Berbatov with the knowledge of the Tottenham board. A fee is now to be agreed and my sources tell me £28 million will be the price.

Coventry will sign next week
gunnarsson 800 k
keiran westwood 500 k
David bell 300 k

My older brother is good friends with Simon Dawkins, who is in Tottenham Reserves and he told my brother that Tottenham have made a £8 million bid for Igor Akinfeev and a £12.4 million bid for Lukas Podolski and are also chasing David Bentley.
He also told him that Giovani is earning £45,000 a week.
A2D's Arsenal update:
Hahaha. I cannot believe what the guy yesterday said about Bentdner and Van Persie joining the scousers IF they do not get Nasri and Ben Arfa. There was then a rant about Ramsey and about 20 other players. That was funny. Now onto more pressing matters.
Ramsey has signed for Arsenal today. It's on the website Arsenal. com and skysports. com.
A Local Marseille newspaper (La Province) has stated that Nasri has also signed a pre–contract agreement (which is legally binding in aspects. ) with Arsenal and cannot understand where the English media's Athletico stories and the delusional scousers on various forums and THIS website have come from.
Adebayor's agent is talking again. This story keeps resurfacing, but Adebayor is on holiday and has stated he intends to stay and return for pre–season training in July.
Agents seem to know young men can be manipulated however ;). o O (When Milan come along you do not say no blah blah blah. Then in Milan. Give me £5 million and I'll get that signature. )
but I still think he will stay. UNLESS Milan's offer is over the odd's and Wenger (and only he) decides to cash in.
A case then of who comes in. Villa would be nice, but would be too expensive with Chelsea sniffing about. From speculated availabilty coinsided with ability I can only see Eto'o as the replacement.fact. A Wenger type player.
A centre back is nowhere nearing conclusion. I have a feeling this one might be a suprise.
The Hleb story has gone all quiet also. Definantly in it is final stages and should be over and done with in the next fortnight. Straight cash and no swap deals.
It's all still going according to plan and just in case you need reminding.
Nasri – Marseille – 13.5 million
Ramsey – Cardiff – £5 million
Chantome – Paris St. Germain – £3 million
Counqlain – Free/Compensation
A Centre Back – Various –? m
Vela – Loan Return
Merida – Loan Return
Eto'o – FC Barcelona – 16–22 million (IF Adebayor leaves)
Flamini – Milan – Free
Lehmann – Stuttgart – Free
Hleb – Various – 12–16 million
Djourou – Various – £3 million/Loan
Hoyte – Various – £2 million/Loan
Simpson – Various – 500 k – £1 million/Loan
Adebayor – Milan – 25–32 million (Would have to be silly money)
Randall, Gibbs, Gilbert – Loan
Now stop making up stories, take it all in. And my fellow Arsenal brethren get ready to get behind the VENGABOYS again this season
("The vengabus is coming and everybody's jumping.")
Newcastle to sign Răzvan Raţ as replacement/back up for Enrique and Joris Mathijsen from Hamburg. They will be joined by Arda Turan and Crouch/Zigic depanding on the Valencia deal with Enrique with Gomis soon to follow.
There is only one team in Kirby.
MON will buy
Aston Villa ins
and some other names I am not alowed to say but a forward left back and a center midfielder
I am back after a long time, been very busy because I have been trying to tie up the loose ends for the Samir Nasri deal. Next up for him would be a medical and a personal meeting with Wenger. Also I have been tasked to draw up an offer for dortmund's Wonder–kid Nuri Sahin. Over the last fews days I have been processing the loan deals of Walcott, gibbs, lansbury, Traore. David Villa is not a possibility as Wenger thinks that our strikeforce is powerful. Expects Zapata, we are brooding over whether to offer £16 million for him.
TRUST ME ALL THESE ARE 100 percent TRUE.
s. Nasri–Arsenal undisclosed
d. villa–Arsenal 29 mill
j Hoyte–a Villa 4 mill
n. solano–hull free
p. Crouch–Pompey 6.9 mill
g. barry–Liverpool 18.5 mill
Arron ramsey–Arsenal £5 million
l. Saha–Hammers £5 million
louis boa morte–Newcastle £2 million
Berbatov–Chelsea £30 million
o. kapo–Wigan £2 million
d. cousin–Fulham £2.5 million
Hope United or Chelsea sign Ribery because he is awful. how can anyone state he is worth £30 million and not burst out laughing? he is almost as overrated as Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
there is a possibility that xabi Alonso's move to Juve is stalling as Juve are interested in bastian schweinsteiger from Bayern. he does not play in same position as Alonso but they do not want to pay too much for Alonso so they still have enough money for the German. if this is true then it's unlikely Bayern will sell lahm and also Ribery as that means losing 3 first team players and no team ever does that.
