Last week Simon Grayson revealed he wanted two more additions to his squad before the end of the transfer window closes. In the next 48 hours he should have brought in a new player. Any more news on this, or Leeds United please tell me.

Rumours that Marvin Elliott is on his way to Leeds from Bristol City. Not sure of fee but 3 year deal.

Would love it, credible source? Not likely on this site.(7)(8)

 

 16 Aug 2010 22:44:55
"united to try and sign Haris Vuckic from Newscastle for 8M then loan him and obertan to Newcastle, deal being descussed after tonights game."

8m? His market value isn't even a million, so Newcastle will likely make about a million for him. Newcastle fan wanting money after a crap performance so they don't go down I see. Too late.(11)(9)

 

 16 Aug 2010 22:53:26
JLloyd Samuel to sign for Bristol City from Bolton this week. Youngster Matt Phillips from Wycombe also signing.(4)(4)

 

 16 Aug 2010 23:09:52
Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is interested in a season long loan deal for Liverpool's young utility defender Steve Kelly, after the young defender had a strong pre season exceling at right back and left back in friendlies and European competition. Roy Hodgson will only allow Kelly to leave if another left back arrives at the club. With Fabio Aurelio susceptible to injury and the limbo over the departue of Emilano Insua. There is no recognised consistent left back at the club.(2)(9)

 16 Aug 2010 23:15:31
Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United have all enquired about Marc Albrighton's contract situation at Aston Villa. The young midfielder only signed a new contract last year, but the giants of English football have all been alerted to the emergence of a 'homegrown' talent following his outstanding performance for Aston Villa in their 3–0 victory over West Ham on Saturday. These are only enquiries, and Aston Villa would like to insist Marc is not for sale.(10)(16)

 

 16 Aug 2010 23:17:55
Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal) turned down Barcelona and AC Milan to join the Gunners.(14)(21)

 

 16 Aug 2010 23:22:53
With managerless Aston Villa approaching the end of the Transfer window with the prospect of losing James Milner and not making any new signings, Kevin MacDonald has been given control of Aston Villa's £8 million transfer budget. The caretaker manager could have more funds made available to him following Milner's sale, but it is understood that the £8 million could be used to bring Middlesbrough midfielder Gary O'Neil, former Chelsea forward Eidur Gudjohnsen, and free agent Mikael Silvestre to Villa Park.(7)(11)

To yorkie lad where the proof of your source you say its in the press in austria, i always put the link up to prove my source where use, except probably in your head, as im sure your well aware he not undergone medical yet. so he not signed for one and two, why would he need a work permit austria is part of european union, go get a education because obviously don't know the in's and out's and fact don't know this i find it hard to ever believe what yorkie lad says, so come on yorkie. prove me wrong but i bet you can't ha ha .(5)(25)

SPL Rumours
–––––––––––––––––
Emilio Izaguirre should sign for around £600K in the next day or two, looks a decent left back ( can't be worst than Mulgrew)

McFadden has been linked a few times and ashe in in his last year of contract he could arrive for about £2M

Vladimir Weiss from City has been linked as a loan deal, sorry fellow Tims but neither Shay Given nor Craig Bellamy will be playing for us this season. Dont think City would sell him to another EPL cluband not sure if Cardiff can afford the deal, however he has said that he wants to be closer to his family so why would he move another 250 miles away from them???
Given – he may want to leave toget first team footballbut City don't really need the cash do they?? i think that they will rotate both him and Hart throughout the season, as soon as one makes a mistake the other will get in.

Leaving Paradise will be:
O'Dea – loan to Ipswich
Josh Thompson – Loan to CCC side
Hinkel – back to Germany – £1.5M

Rangers
––––––––––––––
Jelavic saga should be sorted this week, if he plays in the Europa League he won't move to rangers, if he doesn't then expect himto be signed this week.

2 or 3 more players will be brought in, with Davis rumoured to be off to everton

Aberdeen
––––––––––––––––––
Left back Grant Basey looks to be coming in on a free transfer.

Dundee Utd
––––––––––––––––
Houston will be hoping for no transfer action as he wants to keep hold of all his squad.(14)(14)

 

 16 Aug 2010 22:37:07
Rangers' interest in Croatian striker Nikica Jelavic is over. The Rapid Vienna striker will not be moving to Rangers and instead will stay with the Austrian club.

Rapid Vienna have said that they don't have time to bring in a replacement and need him to face Aston Villa in the Europa League play–off game. It spells the end of weeks of speculation over a proposed move.

BREAKING NEWS FOR RANGERS FANS

Rangers will now look to complete the signing of Portsmouth striker Tommy Smith. Gaffer Walter Smith will also be trying to bring some more in before the transfer window slams shut in just over a fortnight.

A look at Rangers' bench on Saturday shows you how badly Rangers need to bring in some cover. Andrius Velicka was the only player on the bench who was not a youth player. An injury or two and Rangers are in dire straits.

Walter Smith may be tempted to come back in for Jelavic next year and may attempt to sign him on a bosman in the January transfer window. But for now Smith will focus his attentions on signing is namesake from Portsmouth.(26)(27)

Rangers News

My friend works for an Aberdeen newspaper and as told me that Miller and Davis where sold on Sunday night to Newcastle. This will hit the papers tomorrow. . FACT. The reason this has not came out is due to the fact that Newcastle had their match with Utd to concentrate on and also Rangers FC did not want fans to panic. They believe that fans will not feel the loss due to the fact that Jelavic will be a rangers player by Wednesday and they have many CMs lined up to take Davis's place such as Freddie Adu, Benny Feilhaber and Alejandro Bedoya.

Really hope this is not true but it unfortunately it is. .

The only hope is that the replacements are good enough to do the same job as Super Steve Davis.

Keep the heads up fellow Gers fans.

In Walter We Trust.

In reply to baggieroy – odemwingie is a nigerian international born in russia currently playing for lokomotiv moscow – it is claimed he has agreed terms and signed a 3 year deal pending the 2clubs reaching an agreement on the transfer fee believed to be approx 2.5 million(7)(3)

 

 16 Aug 2010 22:02:37
Craig Bellamy will not sign for Cardiff this season, as Fulham are set to sign him by Thursday afternoon.

A player who might be on his way to Cardiff is Everton and Nigeria striker Victor Anichebe.

Charles N'Zogbia is also considering a move to Cardiff, after a bust–up with Roberto Martinez. No Premiership or SPL sides want him, so rather than be frozen out he will drop down a division for the season.

The money gained from the sale of Peter Whittingham would finance his move (even if it's a loan), but Cardiff are also interested in Hibs defender/ midfielder Lewis Stevenson, and a deal for the Scot could be in the offing.(6)(31)

RANGERS LATEST

BBC reporting that Jelavic is staying for Rapid's Europa League games against Villa however it is all over Croatian and Austria media websites that Jelavic is infact joining Rangers and the deal has been finalised. (www.24sata.hr)

Rapid cannot afford to play him in these games as it will drastically decrease his value and they will not risk losing £4.2m for a player in the last year of his contract.

I think this will break in the UK media tonight and in tomorrow morning's papers.(37)(32)

 16 Aug 2010 20:21:03
Arsenal need to buy! ! As seen in this summer alot of the young players in Arsenal's reserves are just not good enough to play for Arsenal. They spent so much time and effort on them and alot of them don't come out to anything. They need a minimum of 3 defenders. Spahic needs to come in for around 4–5 million. I don't really care if he is 29 he is a good solid defender and needs to be brought in. They need to spend 10–12 million on Sakho or maybe work out a deal where they send a player plus cash that way which would make the deal cheaper. They will also need one more defender to make sure that they have plenty of cover. easier to loan out players to get first team football for a few months than go and but players. Eboue needs to be sold TODAY! he is garbage and should have never started against liverpool. I think that Wilshire did well but I would have preferred Rosicky to play instead in the middle as we saw when he came on he brought another dimention to Arsenal. Walcott should have started instead of worthless eboue bc walcotts speed gave liverpool trouble. Wenger needs to stop being so darn stubborn and play walcott so that he can do some good for the team and sell crap eboue and go and get Hazard now! We need him now not in january bc as we saw on sunday Nasri is still not consistent. Hazard could probably come in for 10–12 mil and again we could send crap Eboue the other way or a youngster on loan for a year.(20)(18)

or 6.5m around £5.2m plus Ryan Babel both deals PSV could be interested in.

In other news Liverpool will sign Brad Jones in the next 24–48 hours and Liverpool could complete as many as 2 other deals (not Jones or Toivonen) before the window shuts.

THE SCOTTISH SUN ! LOLLLLLLLL
The Scottish Sun see that davis wasn't in the team and 1 + 1 = 3
THEY ARE TRYING TO UNSETTLE RANGERS!

"What ever is thrown at us , we will always rise to the top! "


The sun didn't say he was going and if you read what i said i didn't either. I said there was a rumour going around ibrox davis was at everton and the sun said the same thing they didn't say he was at everton so they are not putting 1 + 1 and getting 3 they are just saying about the rumour so hows this trying to unsettle rangers?

If you check out all the related Real Madrid fanzones etc you will see that they are carrying up to date reports within the last 2hrs on the Ozil saga. .app player has now asked to be left out of Wed's C/ L game. .shock horror and Real Madrid have now sent their officials to Germany to complete the Transfer. Would appear he has agreed personal terms. Again I reel in shock. . not a big decision is it. .sunny manc or man in sunny spain! I'm a Man Utd fan myself but as much as I wanted to see Ozil at OT I just want him to sign for someone/ anyone so we can all move on. . .(12)(18)

To the guy going on about Rangers '£80 million debt' and tax bill leading to administration – this tax case hasn't been prepared yet, so your figures are pure fabrication, also why would Lloyds allow us to buy players if the funding was uncertain? I suggest you apply your amateur accounting skills to your own club – £15million debt and rising! McGeady cash will ALL go towards servicing this debt – FACT.(25)(35)

Rangers Latest :

Never mind the guy who states rangers " £80m " debt , it must be debt building up over the last 100 years LOL , 80million is just absurd!

Anyway , on to transfers:

Walter will run the rule over Bazarite and Welcome tommorow in a close door game against Partick Thistle at Murray Park ( Free to watch )
Khumalo – £1m 80%
Bazarite – Loan ( Free next year ) 100%
George Welcome – £500k (depends on game)
Nikica Jelavic – £4.2m + add–ons 95%

CMON WALTER , GET THEM ALL!

CJ {editor's note – I am a little confused, if the game is behind closed doors, how can it be free to watch? The whole point of that is that there are no spectators allowed.}


The article on Rangers potential debt was published in the Herald and Scotsman newspapers in May this year. £80million is merely speculative. However, it is made up of the £30million already owe Lloyds and the £24million backdated tax bill from when Rangers paid players wages into overseas bank accounts. This takes the debt to £54million. . this is factual. The other £26million is where the specuation comes in as HMRC may impose further financial penalties.(25)(25)

Is anyone going to call me a disgrace or an embarresment today for saying there was a rumour davis was at everton for signing talks even though it says in the scottish sun that was the rumour going round ibrox?

WATP

Davis was at Ibrox on Saturday, I sit in the main stand and I seen him, he left just after half time, so your rumour has no basis. I also recieved the text saying he was down at Everton and pmsl at it.

To Editor, they say games at murray park are behind closed doors, because they don't sell tickets, but you are free to go and watch it, they do this normally at reserve games where you get a crowd of between 50–100 people.

RFC {editor's note – then it is not closed doors, they aren't allowed spectators at behind closed doors matches. Reserve games are never behind closed doors, they might not sell tickets but that is completely different from playing behind closed doors.}(5)(22)

Another delusional Rangers fan.
read the papers, and listen to your own chief executive. You are under investigation from HRMC over 24mill owed in taxes through using an offshore payment fund, this will if proved have interest added as well. This will be sorted in time, so don't deny it or ignore it as it won't go away.
also Davis Bougherra and Miller, two of these will be sold before the transfer window as they are on high wages
Jelavic, possibly Conway and/ or Goodwillie will be brought in and 1 or 2 loan signings in order to reduce the wage bill and satisfy Lloyds
Bellamy and Given are no goes for Celtic, Becchio will not be joining either.
Samaras and Hinkel will leave Crosas on loan to Middlesboro.
as for signings too many rumours without substance but a top signing will be made before deadline day along with 2 or 3 others and maybe a loan deal to replace players leaving, so possibly 4 in 4 out(17)(27)

===============================

Celtic Finances

Interesting to see John Reid say this debt of £5.85m is sustainable, then followed by, Neil Lennon has already spent £10m on top of this on new players plus more to come, whereas the money from McGeady, said to be around £9.5m, Boruc £1.7m, McManus £1.5m, plus a few fringe players sold, after reading some posts on here"Lennon has millions to spend"with the figures above, I can't see the Celtic board sanctioning these ridiculous claims, I honestly think, Celtic will have to offload some players, Samaras, Fortune, Rassmussen, Brown to name a few, before they can spend again, until then it's only frees and loans, money is tight for both of the Old Firm, Rangers have money to spend on 2/ 3 players, loans as well, but that's as far as it goes, reallistic Old Firm fans know and can accept this, then again there's always the others who can't! (24)(13)

 

 16 Aug 2010 17:30:16
The comment in relation to the £80m debt at Rangers is taken straight from Scotsman article in May. There has been plenty of analysis since in relation to this risk. Suffice to say, Lloyds would not have permitted any transfer budget in this window if they felt there was the remotest risk. Keep things up to date lads! Keep it relevant!(16)(10)

Well it seems (according to the independent, guardian etc who are generally credible sports reporters) that Ozil is on the verge of joining madrid. If that's the case then sure i'll be disappointed but we have to have faith that SAF knows what hes doing. I will find it easier to accept if United never bid for Ozil. However if the reason we missed out was because SAF didn't act quick enough and wanted him on a free next year then i won't be too happy. Anyway whatever happens, IMO, Fergie MUST go all out to get Rodwell next summer. Everton fans will hate me for saying that but the lad is the future for both club and country. I wouldve preferred to sign him this summer however Everton have no need to sell just yet as they are a club on the up and the relationship between the 2 managers is extremely good. Maybe we can nick Moyes and Rodwell at the same time? ;–)(30)(34)

Charles N'Zogbia and Craig Bellamy will both join Fulham.

Fulham will send Andy Johnson to Cardiff, as he is no longer guaranteed 1st team football. I personally know AJ and he'd have no trouble in moving to Cardiff but he is going to stay based in London (i.e. he wouldn't move to live in South Wales).

Also, Scott Parker is going to make a surprise move to Newcastle United. SP has had enough of being used in the media by Gold and Sullivan and wants away from the 'circus' at West Ham.

More bad news for the Hammers is that their stadium move could be off if they are relegated, and with a lot of players unhappy at Upton Park it's quite possible that they'll end up in The Championship next season.(11)(63)

I see Ozil has agreed terms with real madrid so i expect him to complete the move shortly. As for the rumour part of my post, i believe Milner will complete his move to liverpool ONLY if the take over goes ahead before the transfer deadline. He has publically stated he wants to join them. The hodge could use the mash money i suppose but only if he sells him. If he sells him, he could get milner and get a world class striker in january when he will have the full financial backing of the new owners.(12)(33)

Question to ED/ Readers

Do Given or Schwartzer have buy out clauses in their contracts? How much?

Arsenal will no doubt move for a keeper, I just wonder if they could force a move for Given?

Both Given and Schwarzer would jump at the chance, Schwarzer would be a cheap option @ £3 million ish but I would rather see a big spend for Given!

Also, any rumours about CBs with any legs? ED you mentioned last week an agreed price with a german team, any news?

Arsenal4Life {editor's note – as far as I know neither player has a buy out clause. As for the CB from the German team, I can only assume it has fallen through, maybe the player's wage demands were too high? I don't know to be honest, but it has taken far too long to be a straightforward transfer.}(27)(13)

RANGERS Football Club could be saddled with a debt of up to £80 million after being hit with a colossal tax bill.

The Glasgow club has reportedly been handed a £24m "assessment" by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) after an investigation into offshore payments made to players during the past decade.

The club fears the fine, combined with interest of £12m and possible additional penalties, could reach up to £54m.

Combined with its existing debt of about £30m which it is under pressure from Lloyds Banking Group to repay this could leave Rangers owing almost £80m.

An Ibrox source described the situation as "desperate", and said: "We're already struggling to pay £30m we owe the bank. Another £50m could tip us in to the abyss of administration.

"We've been hit with a £24m 'assessment' from the taxman. The implications are horrifying. The interest could be £12m and there may also be a penalty element of between £12m and £18m. This is a desperate situation."

The tax bill relates to alleged loans that Rangers players received from employee benefit trusts administered by the club's parent company, Murray International Holdings, owned by Sir David Murray, who announced his decision to step down from the Ibrox board last August.

The club is expected to appeal in a process that could take a year. Though it has not commented on the size of the tax bill, Rangers chief executive Martin Bain confirmed HMRC "had raised an assessment for the club".

A football financial analyst said, however, that the HMRC was unlikely to force the club into insolvency. "Our experience is that, generally, the HMRC do not try to maximise their bills, and certainly, I would have thought, not gone to the levels where they put Rangers in danger of falling into some form of insolvency, " he said. "Clearly, if you push a company over the edge, you will get a fraction (financially] of what you might have got.

"It has to be palatable from everybody's perspective, but that's not to say that the HMRC will look for their tax and will look to get the entirety of the tax they are due, but it may be that, once it's gone through the various authorities, there is a negotiated lesser sum due.

"It's when it comes to penalties that there's clearly a negotiation to be held."

It has been claimed that the club may attempt to stall any final demand in an attempt to find a new billionaire owner who would be able to foot the bill, but the analyst believed this was unlikely to happen.

He said: "I think anyone who buys the club will seek an indemnity from the current owners that, whatever bill they have to pay, will be ultimately paid through a reduction in the price they (the new owner] pay or simply by the current owners.

"I don't think anyone would want to take on that level of uncertainty."

HMRC is also investigating the use of employee benefit trusts by a number of English clubs.

The new revelations are the latest to emerge about the state of the Glasgow club's finances.

In March, team manager Walter Smith warned that Rangers' cash crisis was getting progressively worse, while senior officials have spoken of their fears that the club could collapse if it failed to stick to a budget reduction plan brought to them by Lloyds.(47)(57)

Mcfadden is also being lined up either at the close of this transfer window, or again in January
players out will be Hinkel, Thompson on loan, O, Dea on loan, but both transfered at end of loan deals, Rasmussen and Samaras will also go either before deadline day or January
Bechio is possibly on his way
outwith that there will be 1 or 2 loan deals with Given being the goalkeeping target, depending on whether Man City will allow him to leave as they need cover for Hart(40)(73)

Surely it would take a lot of money to buy him as in my opinion he is our best player!

in reply
Contract talks have stalled with Becchio, he was asking for around 10,000, Leeds offered 7500.
and because he only as 12 months left on his contract they have told him he can leave this summer so they will get something for him

around 750k would get him(32)(57)

A question rather than a rumour. Ed. . . .IF, Chelsea complete the rumoured signing of Neymar from Santos, how does he stand in regards to obtaining a work permit? Obviously he does not qualify through International appearances, is there a different criteria due to his age? Thanks

{Editor's Note: Neymar will put taken down the well trodden route of the "talent" exception. The rules allow a club to request a player is granted a work permit on the basis of the talent that player has. The process is used by all clubs and most recently (last Thursday) by Chelsea in completing the signing of Ramires.}(26)(21)

Some old firm news.

Rangers – as most will know, bain away to vienna to talk to the croatian lad and his agent to offer a take it or leave it deal. Looks to be promising this time for rangers. Vienna were trying to keep the options open, hoping for an offer from an english club to offer more than rangers and a one off payment. Good news for rangers is no one else is interested in him.
Looks like deal to be concluded by the end of the week.

Celtic – bellamy deal scuppered as he wants to settle nesr his family, quite rightly so but would have been amazing up here in scotland.
Celtic seem to be turning their attentions to the leeds number 10, becchio. An Argentinian forward with an eye for goal.
I don't think there is any talk about becchio in any of the papers as yet (up in scotland anyway) but have very good reason to believe that this deal has already took initial talks, according to some friends in the media.
Also, celtic looking to sign another couple of players on long term contracts as well as 2 or 3 loan deals, given, wiess have been mentioned.
Zander diamond of aberdeen has been quoted as a potential target for cover.

I have only posted 3 times, only genuine rumours.

Well it seems like Bellamy is off to Cardiff, fair play to the lad it seems like a family decision as much as anything and to be fair to the guy going to play for his boyhood club is an achievment all footballers would love to make. He obviously wants to be near his family and who can fault the guy after the way city have played with his head who can blame him, Glasgow probably wasn't the right move for him just now.

Us tims shouldn't be too disheartened though you never know what the future holds, this guy aint finished not by a long chalk so expect us to be in with a chance in future windows as Craig still has so much to offer the game, let's get it right sports fans this guy is pure class. At 31 he has a few years left you just never know in this game that we love that is football.

I would like to congratulate Cardiff in winning the race for Bellars signature he will no doubt lift the whole club after what has been a difficult time for everyone concerned with Cardiff City.

Best of luck wee man hope it works out.

Happy Tim.(54)(44)

This is accurate information obtained from the PA of the chief executive David Gill, who is a close work friend of mine at old trafford (i am the PA for the secretary)
Ozil was said to be more keen on manchester united as he was a keen fan of the club as a child through the 90s

A little snippet again from Belgium.

Racing Genk (who have made a storming start, winning 3 from 3 scoring 11 goals) had several scouts watching v Charleroi (5–0) this last week.
They were from (in no particular order) Arsenal, Juventus, Chievo, Everton, Fulham, Leverkusen, Ajax, PSV & FC Twente. They were all watching
Jelle Vossen (age 21 – centre forward), who has already scored 4 and Kevin De Bruyne (age 19 – attacking midfielder) who has netted 3 times.
If its not in this window, they will not be in Belgium for long. That said, Vossen did recently sign a new contract.(21)(11)

Whittingham to Forest deal still on,
Pratley to Forest deal still on,
Swansea are trying to scare Forest into offering more money by holding out till the end of the transfer window. Forest will then make a deal of take it or leave it. . Not as much as Swansea want but enough to lure him away as they will not lose him for free no matter what Huw Jenkins has said on the official website.
Whittingham will also be held on to by Cardiff until they have a deal in place for Bellamy which will be sooner rather than later so once again they will not lose their star player for free and will be tempted by a take it or leave it offer from Forest in the last couple days in the window.
Maybe a nother defender coming in as its looking a bit bleak at the back but this will be all the signings Forest will make and should be the icing on the cake.

"Anelka 2 make a shock move bk 2 arsenal as Chelsea signing Neymar n STurridge to b brought in to the fold dis year. Wenger has always said Anelka would of become best player in world if he had stayed at Arsenal. Fee will b 7m. Abramovic himself has accepted this offer as things are tough at Chelsea."

Sturridge isn't strong enough yet to play in Drogba's role, and no one else even comes close at Chelsea currently. Anelka will be kept as Drogba's replacement should he be injured etc. Both are in their 30's and thus will not be able to play all the games in every competition we're in, even if they do stay injury free.

From Arsenals own site: "Yes, I considered bringing him back at some stage. It never worked because we'd always had strikers and also I have never been a big fan of bringing old players back." – Wenger himself.(14)(96)

the goalkeeper thing we will sign some person that turns out to be top quality like what we did with artur boruc
message to lennon keep charlie mulgrew well away from starting 11

rangers:
to all the rangers fans the realistic ones realise that rino gattuso isn't going to sign and i don't think jelavic will sign either. i would say yous could add another player or 2 to the sqaud e.g fringe players from premier league and although its a player suggestion and probally won't happen i would like to see someone like aaron moakena come 2 spl

could be the tightest league campaign for a good while.

Not so much a rumour as an observation:

fergie has said many times that he trusts his current squad, which was many people's reason for them not making any big name signings since chicharito. but since then, fergie has indicated that bebe was an ''impulse buy'' (in other words, they probably looked at a youtube video at quiroz's gaff and snapped him up.). what this tells me is that fergie isn't 100% confident in the squad, and if he lied about that, he could have been at craven cottage to see oezil as well as fulham. personally i see no reason why oezil wouldn't come to manchester but it also crossed my mind that he would be in madrid's team for at least 4 months, and even when kaka returns, jose could play a system similar to the german world cup system with kaka playing schwinestiger's position. he would definately play ahead of van der vaart. so he probably would get a place in madrid's team but of course as a united fan, i see no reason why fergie wouldn't at least try. although i have heard that bremen have asked for at least £16m and probably not even city would pay that. . well, maybe. .

"HE WILL NOT BE JOINING FOR FREE IN JANUARY, THIS IS WHEN HE CAN SIGN A PRECONTRACT WITH A NEW CLUB AND LEAVE TO JOIN UP WITH THEM ON JULY 1ST 2011!

UNITED WILL NOT GET HIM ON A FREE BECAUSE HE IS EXPECTING HUGE WAGES FOR EXAMPLE 120140K A WEEK AS HE NEVER COST THE TEAM A PENNY AND UNITED WILL NOT PAY THEM WAGES, LEGENDS LIKE PAUL SCHOLES & RYAN GIGGS ARE ON 90K A WEEK, VIDIC IS ON 90K A WEEK WHEN HE SIGNS HIS NEW CONTRACT, THERE IS NO CHANCE A PLAYER WILL COME IN AND BE PUT STRAIGHT ON 120K A WEEK IT JUST WILL NOT HAPPEN, WHY DO YOU THINK WE LOST OUT TO CHELSEA IN THE BALLACK DEAL? BECAUSE WE OFFERED 90K A WEEK AND CHELSEA OFFERED 151K A WEEK!

UNITED WILL NOT BE HELD TO RANSOM BY A PLAYER THAT HAS NOT GIVEN THE CLUB ANYTHING IN RETURN! IF UNITED DO NOT GET HIM FOR THEIR CUT PRICE (WHICH THEY ARE ATTEMPTING TO DO) THEN WE WILL NEVER GET HIM, ITS THAT SIMPLE!

EDITOR COULD I HAVE EXPLAINED IT ANY CLEARER THAN THAT?"

1. Yes that pre contract was what i meant, with him playing for us in pre season.

2. Ozil, has made it perfectly clear that it is not wages that he wants but trophies and the chance to play for a top european club. Also if you think he is asking for 120–140k you are misinformed, no club apart from man city is ready to offer him that. Not even real madrid or barcelona.

3. Also if you have any common sense you will know that real madrid already have canales and van der vaart and when fit kaka too playing there in the same positions so if he has a choice between united and real madrid on a pre contract he will chose united.

4. The deal with ballack was different and the times were different too. Ballack knew he had equal chance of first team football in chelsea, he was already established and a first teamer so it was not that he wanted a first team place but ozil does. Also remember when VDS, giggs, neville, scholes retire we will have a potential 200+k surplus left on the wage bill so we can afford to give some extra wages. Although i agree united won't be held to ransom i know that united will be able to offer him better prospect of breaking into the first team.(31)(18)

Hey, i posted a week ago, saying a deal between werder bremen and manchester united was imminent for ozil. word late last night/ early this morning, is that ozil is flying into manchester today to complete terms, including a medical, and that the conclusion of the deal will be made public late tonight/ early tomorrow morning. This is accurate information obtained from the PA of the chief executive David Gill, who is a close work friend of mine at old trafford (i am the PA for the secretary)
Ozil was said to be more keen on manchester united as he was a keen fan of the club as a child through the 90s(28)(25)

Good luck to him. . . .12 months before he realises that the grass isn't always greener. . and that he's not going to a 'bigger club'.
