Liverpool have had a great season and just need to keep improving the squad
NAP – Itandje will be gone in the summer. His behaviour during the Service Of Rememberance has put paid to him. He will be made to publicly apologise to the families and moved on at the end of the season.
NAP – Rafa and the Right Wing. Rafa likes forward players who track back. Don't be looking for a right winger who is good going forward but can't tackle, can't defend, doesn't over–lap and won't track back. The Nap tip for this position is. . . Joe Cole for £25M. He will be the big buy this summer. Not Aguerro, not Villa, not Silva, but Joe Cole. And he's English as well.
Benitez is looking to sign a versatile striker–somebody who can come in and play with or instead of Fernando Torres. The greater the versatility, the better. His top 2 targets for this position are Gonzalo Higuain (20mil) and Bojan Krcic (12mil)
He is also looking for another striker who is young and who can develop into the striker Benitez wants. His top 2 targets are Diogo (11mil) and Keirrison (12mil)
He is also looking at 1 established and versatile attacking midfielder. His first choice is Frank Ribery but Munich's price tage of 35mil cannot be reached. He will instead look at Silva (18mil) to replace the outgoing Ryan Babel who is a target for Juventus and Athletico Madrid. Benitez will try and put in a buy back clause for him.
His targets for right back are between Santon, Johnson and Srna. Santon is first choice but he would cost around 8mil although Mourinho would like to bring Andrea Dossena to the San Siro.
To sum up, Benitez's main targets are Silva (18mil) Higuain (20mil) Diogo (11mil) Santon (8mil) + maybe a midfielder. A lot of players will be leaving: Babel (10mil) Voronin (2mil) Itjande Pennant (frees) Dossena (5mil) Degen (2mil) Plessis (2mil) El Zhar Spearing N'gog Kelly Darby (loan)
To the delude fan who wrote this::
Barry (he wants champions league football) £8mill
G.Johnson (Portsmouth are gonna have to sell) £9mill
S.Eto'o (Barca don't want him) £18mill
M.Zarate (the next L.Messi) £5mill
Diogo (if they sell arbeloa) £7mill or swap
G.Deulofeu (gonna be a huge star) 3.5mill
M.Mancienne (possible but Chelsea may not sell to a rival)4.5mill
David Silva (definately a target) £27mill
Ryan Babel (Rafa doesn't want him) £14mill
Lucas Leiva (massive flop) £9mill
Daniel Agger (he hates being a sub) £14miil
Andrei Voronin (loving life at hertha £5.5mill
S.Leto (swap for diogo or cash) £3mill
M.San Jose (loan) loan
C.Itandje (doesn't like the fact hr's never made an appearence LFC) £500K """""""""""""""""
Firstly you said Zarate is new MEssi. .he is no where near Messi. .he is a complete different player to Messi. .and Zarate has been superb for Lazio this season and his club AL SAAD want at least 15 mil. for him. no way Liverpool will ever get him for 5 mil.
second of all you said Lucas Leiva is a massive flop. but you quoted his price more than what you paid for him. if he is considered as a massive flop then most probably you'd be lucky to get 5 mil for him.
Third of all, you said Liverpool will sell Voronin for 5.5 mil. .do you value Zarate and Voronin at a same price?
grow up kid.
Man United Rumours:
Sir Alex has been fed up with Dimitar Berbatov and wants to offload him in the summer. Sir Alex has set his sights on Udinese striker Fabio Quagliarella who has impressed United scouts. Sir Alex has also been monitoring Bremen star Diego to replace veteran Scholes.
so outs will be –––
Ins will be –––
David Moyes top two targets are Alan Hutton and Dickson Etuhu. All the people who say Everton need a winger on the left don't really understand the Everton system. Osman and Arteta adapt well to each game and can be very effective. The two targets allow Neville to be used where and when required. Saha will be used occasionally on the wings when pace is required. If hes ever fit.a central 3 of Cahill Fellaini and Etuhu could be very effective, espescially with Pienaar and Neville covering. Expect to see more of Gosling too as a 5 man mid is used a lot more.
I've saw a few comments on behalf of my club Manchester City, and i have to say some of the rumours are ridiculous, i seen Robinho out Kaka in ? Are you stupid , or just drunk ? Hughes wants Kaka to link up well with Robinho !
But also, Ronaldinho looks certain to sign for around £15m. Vladimir Weiss will sign a new 5 – year contract but go out on loan to either Wolves or Cardiff.
I am a bolton fan and they will get £15mil to spend on
joe ledley £6mil need more goalscorers!
dan gosling loan promising
andy carroll loan promising good at headers
razvan rat £4mil experienced strong non–injury prone and consistent
and finally backup for matt taylor kelvin etuhu from man city on loan
out will go shittu bogdan cohen joey o brien and finally jussi kelainen will shockingly leave for palermo in his last season in a swap deal with samir ujkani 8th next season coykays!
To the Funny sellik fan who said this
Rangers set for big changes next season , the club are in big financial trouble and several high earners are up for sale. Ian Maxwell , David Rowson and Mark Roberts from Partick will all be signed up. Barry Sellars from Arbroath has already agreed a deal to sign at the start of the season. Elgin have rejected all advances so far for hitman Kenny Wright
Ha Ha we weren't the ones who signed Wayne Biggins and Carl Muggelton !
Take over talks have reached an advanced stage
With 2 consrtiums fighting it out for Murrays share !
A group from North America and Nothern Irsh one
are both in the running
Dont know who will be comming in but expect
the back room staff to change as there contracts only have 6 months left !
Also Weir Daily Hemdani and G Smith all out of contract and won't have them renewed !
Expect to see Hutton come back as the 4 million still owed to Rangers will be written off
and he is willing to half his wages to come back as his wife isn't happy and wants to go home !
Poss Managers being looked at are Moyes, Big sam ,
Gary Megson and Levein
Barcelona will buy in loads of players in the summer and they will sell some players too
Toure to Arsenal(12m)
Gudjohnson to Blackburn(3.5m)
Henry to Arsenal(10m)
Pique to Valencia(7m)
Hearts Manager Csabo Laszlo identified yesterday his targets as a Left Back, Central Defender, Central Midfielder and Striker.
He has often spoke of the importance of Scots in the team and has good contacts in Germany. European football next season will help him attract from abroad where he cannot find the right player in Scotland. His targets include:
Left Back – Marcel Schmelzer (Borussia Dortmund) on season loan.
Centre Back – Darren Barr (Falkirk) deal is done depending on Falkirk being relegated.
In the unlikely event that Falkirk stay up a shock move could be made for former player Ibrahim Tall, now at Nantes, who has played just eight times this season and who has let it be known that he enjoyed his time in Edinburgh. One of those who left after falling out of favour with owner Vladimir Romanov but now that Romanov's influence is lessened at Hearts he could be convinced to return.
Central Midfield – Tony Jantschke (Borussia Munchen Gladbach) season long loan – Only 18 but capped at under 19 level for Germany.
Striker – Lee Miller (Aberdeen) out of contract this summer and his agent has already had contact from Hearts. Did well in his loan spell previously.
The following players are on Chelsea's shortlist for next summer: (my uncle's cousin is a old friend of Peter Kenyon)
Michael Ballack – Free
Juliano Belletti – 3m
Nicolas Anelka – 10m
Deco – 5m
Pizarro – 8m
Ferreira – 2m
Quaresma – 12m
Zhirkov – 10m
Love – 10m
Hamsik – 8m
Javi Martinez – 8m
carlo anceloti will become manager
jay simpson will return
fraizer campell will return
diego costa 12million
Liverpool FC Transfer Activities:
First of all Tom Hicks and George Gilett will not be selling up, if they are going to sell anything it will be their american based teams. With Hicks and Gilett staying Benitez will be given around £25 million to spend on transfers, the reason for this amount is that Rafa will be able to use any money he gets from players being sold aswell. The players that will be sold are as followed:
Ryan Babel (£9 million)
Andrea Dossena (£5 million)
Philipp Degen (£2 million)
Andriy Voronin (£3 million)
Charles Itandje (£0 million)
Jermaine Pennant (£0 million)
So roughly from sales Rafa will have an extra £18–19 million to spend if he needs. Benitez now believes he has a squad that can challenge for the premier league so he doesn't want to change too much. His main targets are a right back, a right midfielder, a striker, and a versitile player. The players being targeted are below:
Glen Johnson (£10 million)
Joaquin Sanchez (£16 million)
Fernando Llorente (£9 million)
Gareth Barry (£8 million)
Whoever it was who first said Carlos Tevez would be joining Liverpool is absolutely spot on! A deal has been agreed with his management company and will be put through this summer! Fergie is apparently furious with the Glazers about letting him slip through utds fingers before hitting his prime!
Tevez nailed on for Liverpool this summer, seen him again this week in Liverpool city centre with Mascherano! According to my source LFC have reached a deal with the company who own his playing rights! Looks like it bit an explosive "TnT" partnership next season for the mighty reds!
Have to agree with the fella who said Tevez to LFC – Saw him with Mascherano in Liverpool so approached them both for an autograph (sad I know) and flat out asked him see if he was joining us – he said "we'll see" and the pair looked at each other shook hands and laughed!
Big rangers news david murray is selling to a nothern irish consortium and it is going to be graham souness as chairman and alan curbishley or phill brown as manager

Kilmarnock ( if they survive relegation ) to sign Aberdeen striker Darren Mackie. Mackie is keen for a fresh start after 10 years at Pittodrie , he is fed–up of being the scapegoat. JJ is a huge admirer of Mackie , hopefully we will fend off any other interest ( ICT , Motherwell )
The news from Spain is that former president Florentino Perez will stand again in the Real Madrid elections in June. Perez has been in discussions with Rafa Benitez' business manager over Benitez taking over the team next season. The initial sticking point surrounded the level of control that Benitez would have over transfer policy – but that has now been resolved.
To the person that said pedro mendes will leave if ferguson back in the team is talking rubbish
and ferguson will be back in the team but will not captain the gers mendes said in daily recored
that he would like to finish his football at gers
and will not move back to the prem
RANGERS NEWS. . .
Alan Hutton will return to Ibrox in the Summer,personal reasons and falling behind Corluka(who is Harry's first choice),also there is developments on the takeover,the group in question are going to make massive investment and changes to the club top to bottom,until then here's a couple names already linked.
Possible deal with Stranzil is also on the cards,
Aguiar deal is almost done as well
After performing well against Man Utd over the two legs Aly Cissokho could be on his way to Old Trafford, especially if Wes Brown leaves for 1st team football. The fee could be in the region of £4m–£6m.
Coventry will make a desperate attempt to reach the playoffs and a promotion push by providing manager Chris Coleman with suitable funds.
Firstly Guillaume Beuzelin will be offered a new one year deal with the option of another year. New deals for Kieran Westwood, Aron Gunnarsson, Scott Dann and Daniel Fox will be offered with pay rises. Secondly Coleman realises the need for a pacey goalscoring striker andmay look abroad after picking up a few names from his time in Soceidad.Inigo Diaz de Cerio has been a lethal goalscorer for the club scoring around 40 goals in 90 games, injuries have meant he has struggled to rekindle this form and is out of favour. Coleman may also look closer to home at Peterboroughs Craig Mckail–Smith and Scunthorpes Gary Hooper. The Andrew Driver deal will go through for 2million which will rise to 3.5 as long as no premiership clubs become interested. Tony Mowbray also wants to sign Driver and he may be swung more towards the Scots yo–yo club. To sure up the midfield Coleman is looking at Junichi Inamoto at Frankfurt, a player he worked with at Fulham to provide some much needed experience. The unwanted Graham Dorrans has impressed Coleman playing good possesion football and a fee could be agreed. As for right back Coleman may well take a gamble on another former player of his, Moritz Volz.Volz has been on loan at Ipswich and with the rumoured sacking of Jim Magilton the new manager will not be following up his interest. Danny Fox will reject a new deal and sign for a revitalised West Ham for 2.5million pounds. Finally Coleman will keep his eye out for bargains them being mainly low league players such as Kyle Langmead, Asa Hall, Nick Bailey, Zheng Zhi and the experienced Graham Kavanangh. PUSB
After the performance at Porto, Cristiano Ronaldo has cemented his future at Old Trafford. SAF was considerin his future but has decided he's indispensable. Berbatov has failed to impress, but will be given another year unless a big money bid comes in. Nani will go to Everton on loan though there won't be masses of transfer activity. Possible long term signing of Tevez and Aguero. Other than that youngsters brought in.
Barca will rock the transfer market by spending 135 MILLION on Villa, Silva (75) and RIbery (60) Kaka will join Chelsea to make formidable midfield of Kaka, Essien and Lampard
Theo Walcott can buy himself out off his contract in the summer for only £1 million which is crazy as AW has put off his contract talks till the summer but theo's dad is a massive fan of AW and will not let him leave because it does not make sence for his career.
The biggest signing for arsenal this season will be Craig Gordon from sunderland for £4 million the will be 3/4 other signings but as Aw sent massive in jan (feb lol) there is not a lot of money left.
A true fan with his ear to the ground!!
Not rumours but facts, news flash most clubs in uk well skint. that includes rangers for all you crazy folk out there talking rubbish about takeovers and players coming in,dont make me laugh
get in the real world for a wee change, old minty moonbeams has been taking cash from you for years,mis management its called, come on bears or whatever you call yourselves. no slagging about the past or the future just facts. no cash to spend as the bank wants it back through all their mis management over the years
some free transfers to ibrox and celtic park in summer not much more, just see celtic bring in 2 decent signings to bolster squad nothing more
both clubs going down the youth mixed with experience as its all we(both)can afford in current climate.
i hear celtic will sign spanish again similar to crossas deal,plus young talent from scotland being mcarthy fletcher
rangers will struggle to let go dead wood at murray park as why move when they getting paid well for jogging(similar to bobo and massimo)
ie hemdani stle sit back collect the cash or play elsewere for less
a realistic fan. .
Rangers: providing there isn't a buy ouy in the summer (which i doubt) i wouldn't expect any major changes after summer. ferguson will go (£1.5–£2m), possibly birmingham city (he won't move abroad) if he does expect either andy dorman of st mirren to come in or james mcarthur of hamilton. either will come in as cover as w.s will stick to the formula that was great at the start of the season – davis, mendes and thomson (who will be named captain).
david weir will retire, or walk away as he won't be guaranteed 1st team football next season, expect his apprentice – kirk broadfoot (oh no) – to take his place (it is common knowledge that weir regularly stays behind with him after training) if mcgregor leaves, which i hope not, expect alexander to be no1 and tomas cerny of hamilton to come in as cover. if rangers win the title (guaranteeing champs league) they may have a bit of cash to spend, a central defender will be utmost priority. if not they'll wait and see if they manage to get past the qualifiers.
fringe players such as hemdani (£25k a week), dailly, s. smith, mculloch, the usual will be asked to move on.
Arsenal – Yaya Toure (Barcelona) £19 million
Aston Villa – Darren Bent (Spurs) £9 million
Blackburn – Eidur Gudjohnsen (Barcelona) £2 million
Bolton – James Collins (West Ham) £950K
Chelsea – Robinho (Man City) £29 million
Everton – Stephen Defour (Standard Liege) £12 million
Fulham – Sylvan Ebanks Blake (Wolves) $6 million
Hull – Mark Viduka (Newcastle) £4 millions
Liverpool – Fernando Llorente (Ath Bilbao) £14 million
Man City – Kaka (AC Milan) £100 million
Man United – Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich) £36 million
Middlesbrough – Jason Scotland (Swansea) £5 million
Newcastle – Victor Moses (Crystal Palace) £6 million
Portsmouth – Stephen Bywater (Derby) £1 million
Stoke – John Arne Riise (Roma) £4 million
Sunderland – James Vaughan (Everton) £3 million
Tottenham – Kenwyne Jones (Sunderland) £14 million
West Brom – Matt Fryatt (Leicester) £1.5 million
West Ham – Manucho (Man United) £5 million
Wigan Athletic – Adrian Guardado (Deportivo La Coruna) £7 million
Everton are set to make moves to sign nani on loan from man united and jao moutinho will finally sign. expect a few others aswell
Simon Cox:Swindon: £2million
Jack Hobbs:Liverpool: £400,000
David Martin:Liverpool: FREE
Kerrea Gilbert: £100,000
Claude Gkanpka+Chris Martin:£500,000
we realy need a new rightback aswell.
Chris Powell RETIRE
Marc Edworthy RETIRE
Everton have little money this year, however i work for a statistics company (across Europe) and one of my colleagues said he saw an Everton scout reviewing Yoann Gourcuff at the Auxerre match this week. As Everton have no money i would think we would try and steal the [second] loan bid off Bordeux.
I can report that an offer was made by Everton for both Owen and Smith on Deadline day, however despite Ashley wanting to sell, Keegan delayed the move, do not be surprised to see both in an Everton shirt next season.
Victor Anichebe will be sold to Hull if they stay in the Premier League, and James Vaughan will be sent to Preston on loan, to regain fitness.
And finally, Mikel Arteta is set to move to Real Madrid, with Van Der Vaart moving to Everton. Everton will also pay £5 million upfront.
Liverpool fc to sign samuel eto'o,david silva and gareth barry for round about 45 million
With Stoke set to be in the premier league next season Tony Pulis will have at least 30m to spend in the summer. some of his targets include; Kevin Davies, Michael Turner, Danny Murphy, Matt Taylor, Daniel Sturridge, Ryan Nelson
Nani to be made available on loan for a Premiership team, final chance to impress in English top flight. Tevez will not be signed permanently unless the figure falls to £20m or less. Berbatov will not be sold, Ferguson is sensible enough to allow time for him to adapt to a new style of play, plus he contributes to a far more refined tactical approach to United's play. Ferguson sees him as integral to Untied's European ambitions. Scholes is now appearing as more of a liability and Ferguson is in danger of allowing sentiment to jeopardise United's ambitions. He will be replaced. United are looking at Moutinho and Matias Fernandez. Alexis Sanchez will be signed from Udinese, due to his versatility and similarity in style to Ronaldo. One defender will be purchased as the sale of both Pique and Silvestre has left United without the required strength in depth. Wheater is being watched closely.
To the Person stating the Rumour about Ryan Babel.
He was struggling with a Back problem sustained in Training. Rafa and the Physio's concluded it was too much of a risk and resulting in his removal from the squad. He has since made an appearance at Stamford Bridge.

Several rumours have been posted about Aston Villa and former Rangers defender Carlos Cuellar, to the person that said he will make a move to Seville, well done as your source must be good. He will be making the move back to Spain in the summer with the option of signing for one of three top six sides, if the transfer window was open now he would be signing on the dotted line for Real Madrid. This is 110% fact and you can take my word that you will not find a more definate transfer on any website.
Also Charlie Mulgrew knows nothing about the rumours of him moving from Aberdeen to Rangers but he would consider the move even though he is a Celtic fan because he hates Gordon Strachan as do many of the 1st team players at parkhead!
arsenal are not going to be that busy this summer as wenger beleives that his team is developing and improving mentally and physically
They will try and bid for mahamadou sakho from psg for around 6 mill to 8mill and also they might in fact sell adebayor if theres a good buy.
these are the ones i think arsenal should buy#
stephen ireland man city centrer midfielder
felipe melo fiorentina def. midfielder
.mahamadou sakhou centrer defense
maybe bruing in a striker if rvp or ade want to leave
butwenger building a dynasty at the emirates
The Kuwaitis are lookin to buy all of Gillett's shares and 25% of Tom Hicks's. They would guarantee Benitez a net budget of 50mil this year, and at least 20mil/season for the 4 years after that. With this 50mil, Benitez is looking to sign:
Gonzalo Higuain (22mil)
David Silva (18mil)
Javi Martinez (14mil)
Glen Johnson (10mil)
Leaving will be:
Ryan babel (12mil)
Lucas Leiva (loan)
Jermaine Pennant (free)
Andrea Dossena (6mil)
Nabil El Zhar (loan)
David N'gog (loan)
Andriy Voronin (3mil)
Charles Itjande (0.5mil)
Sebastian Leto (4.5mil)
Aaron Lennon will not be signing for Liverpool or anyone else, unless a ridiculous offer (which Liverpool couldn't afford) comes in. The person saying he is a realistic target because Spurs won't qualify for Europe, he signed his new contract after the Carling Cup final when they looked far less likely to make Europe than they do now.
Redknapp may look to Benjani if he fails to sign Kenwyne Jones.
Should Newcastle be relegated, expect to see Arsenal, Liverpool and Aston Villa battle for Steven Taylor and Obafemi Martins. Ryan Babel could be heading towards Spain with Valencia, Atletico Madrid and Villareal interested. Andrea Dossena will move to Napoli for a season long loan, with option to buy. Porto captain Lucho Gonzalez is being tracked by Hamburg and Spurs, although the Argentine is angling for a move to Spain. Benni McCarthy is expected to move on, with Everton, Hull City and Portsmouth interested. Angel di Maria is on his way to Chelsea for £12 Million pounds, but will have competition from Manchester United. =v3=
West ham new owner is South African–born tycoon sir donald gordon give it 4weeks !
I believe Rafa is going to trim the playing staff at Liverpool at the end of the season to free up some cash for transfers, therefore potentially the following may happen.
Dossena £5m – £7m (Not needed as Insua really progressing)
Itandje £500k – £1m (Terrible Keeper)
Voronin £2m – £4m (Wants first team football)
Degen £0 – £500k (Never seen someone so injury prone)
Leto £2m – £3m (Won't get work permit)
Hobbs £500K – £1m
Babel £7m – £10m (Wants first team football)
Benayoun £5m – £7m (Only a maybe, upset Rafa when played for Israel when not fully fit)
Out Loans –
Rafa may even look at reducing the reserves and youth further as there are far too many players to ensure development of the players he likes.
Possible Ins –
Lennon or Joaquin (RW)
Rafinha or Johnson (RB)
Silva and Villa will not be coming to Anfield as we simply cannot afford them. Although Aguero is a possibility.
YNWA – Scouse Magic
The United fan who said Sir Alex will offload both Ronaldo and Nani in the summer is absolutely spot on. Sir Alex has started to do what he never did in the last 5 years that is to criticize Ronaldo. expect more to come from Sir Alex so that fans will not be angry when Ronaldo moves to Real this summer. and Ramon Calderon has publicly said that the deal to bring the player to Madrid is done and dusted. so expect Ronaldo to leave United for good.
And Sir Alex will surely sell Nani as he has proved to be a complete waste of cash just like Dimi Berba'flop'.
so expected outs will be://///
1. Ronaldo – Real Madrid
2. Nani–––– whoever wants to pay 15 mil. for him
3. Berbatov ––AC Milan who are looking for replacement for Pippo Inzaghi.
4. Wes Brown –– Newcastle
5. Darren Fletcher ––– Everton
6. Tevez –––– loan deal won't be made permanent.
Expected ins will be////
1. Sergio Aguero
2. Alexis Sanchez
5. Gianluigi BUFFON!!!!!!
watch this space. ."RedDeviller"
Manchester United F.C
Bastian Schweinsteiger – £11,000,000
Sergio Aguero – £30,000,000
Phillip Lahm – £9,000,000
Franck Ribery – £30,000,000
Luis Nani–Bayern Munich– LOAN
I have read the rumours on the website about fulham and i'm pretty happy in who we are being linked with but this is roughly the look on how we will be shaping up next season:
Wistel will leave standard liege and Hodgson is keen on the influential midfielder. He will play behind johnson so the attack is more forward and fast. Hangeland will stay and Rob jones from hibernian will join the back four as Hodgson likes tall defenders. Zamora will leave unfortunately this is why there is a change in formation but if hangeland is to leave expect Jones and hughes or Breno from Bayern Munich to come in as he is out of favor. Other rumours will be Nani on loan to introduce some flair to the club and other expect Hodgson to buy some Danish talent, KJAER is strongly linked.
Bolton will sign

gareth bale £4.5mil

i am a bolton fan and whoever wrote this above is deluded, julio cruz for 9 mill when he is 35 and on a free at the end of the season grow up. i wouldn't mind seein reo coker at the reebok but i think he would rather move south then north. sean davis is a possible target for free, james morrison rumour won't go away either. would love another left back to put pressure on samuel but will have to see how tight money is this summer with the rumour of reebok pulling out of bolton this summer.
