MAN UTD

Rodrigo Possebon is going home to join Brazilian side Santos on a permanent basis. My source inside OT says that UTD will use this opportunity to start discussions over the possible transfer of Ganso. This is only my second post, my first was when I spotted David James in Bristol before he signed for Bristol City.

 19 Aug 2010 22:40:42
Who agrees with me click believe. Arsene is bidding small amounts on average player, that he knows he will not get, thus shifting the attention from the real targets, that are already signed (I believe Pape Diakhate and Tasci are done deals). And the only goalie he wants is Schwarzer(Given was never an option), because he wants a stop gap for Cesny & Vito.(7)(10)

 

 19 Aug 2010 22:44:20
The latest rumours from inside Murray park are that Joleon Lescott will be joining on a season long loan from Manchester City as Mancini does not rate him too highly, and that Frederico Macheda will be joining on loan from Manchester United in order to obtain Champion's League experience.

MUFC rumours:

After the signing of BEBE the Glazers have told David Gill that SAF has £10M to spend (to include wages) before transfer deadline. Depending on injuries and champions league performance more money will be available in January. Van Der Vaart has been offered to several Premier league clubs including MUFC.

Utd were approached off the record by LFC with regards to Darron Gibson (Hodgson is a big fan) but SAF said no chance.

have you bugged Gills office to get this information! (10)(18)

 

 19 Aug 2010 21:17:11
Despite Leeds only signing League One players who were on a free, there's still Leeds fans on here claiming that you'll sign Viera, Gallas, Woodgate and Smith, it's no wonder everyone laughs at you.

Meanwhile, Jay Simpson has signed for Hull City, as I said this morning, McCormack is not subject to any interest from City, but Steve Caldwell and Jay DeMeritt are both on trial at the moment and one will be signed as soon as there is another player moved out(unless it's Bullard who's moved out, in which case we might sign both of them, along with several other players!).(4)(13)

 

 19 Aug 2010 21:18:46
So ed, firstly thanks for reassuring us all about jelavic's transfer to rangers going through! second now he will most likely sign, smith says he wants one or two more players. who do u think they could be??

MLG {editor's note – I am not sure to be honest, Jelavic was easy to find out about because his agent was very open about him wanting to move there. I would have to say that the most likely targets would be the Americans though.}(12)(3)

Arsene wenger is destroying Arsenal he's had the summer to buy and with less than 12 days for window to shut we are short in midfield, defence and a goal keeper is needed.Frimpong is out as for upto 9 months.Denilson and Diaby are injury prone which only leaves Song as defensive minded midfielder, Melo would have been the perfect signing, Arshavin continues to struggle with fitness and form, he should have brought in Afellay who is ADAPTABLE, Nasri is out and cesc not fully fit it does'nt bode well.Squillaci has been mentioned he's not good enough, why not bring in mexes or subotic, we are being pathetic over Schwarzer, Given is a match winner and will save us 12–15 points.
Arsene needs to spend money and quickly as our hopes are over before season is fully on the way.

Given – £8 million.
Mexes or Subotic £8–15 million.
Melo – £15 million
I'm a season ticket holder and don't want to endure injury ravaged players again making our title hopes suffer.(26)(20)

Chelsea are still hopeful Neymar will decide to come to London. His family are keen on the move, although his club Santos are wanting around 25m rather than the 22m on the table.
The other Brazilian they are trying to get is 17 y.o Lukaku from Anderlecht for 9m.
Ancelotti will then decide whether to keep Gael Kakuta or sell to Bayern Munich for around 12m.
Di Santos is being touted around Europe for 5m, but as yet no takers, so a loan deal to Wigan or PSV looks more likely.
The other decision is whether to sell Mancienne for 6m, with Ancelotti still not convinced about the young England player and make a move for 28m rated Luiz from Benfica

2 THINGS WRONG WITH THIS:

1. LUKAKU IS A BELGIAN OF CONGOLESE DECENT. DUNNO WHERE YOU GOT BRAZILIAN FROM.

2. KAKUTA IS ONE IF NOT THE BEST YOUTH PLAYER WE HAVE + THE FACT WE HAD HUGE TRIBUNAL ABOUT THE SIGNING OF THE PLAYER SO I THINK ITS FAIR TO SAY HE WILL BE GOING NOWHERE(17)(9)

 

 19 Aug 2010 18:08:11
To the guy who said this! I have heard from my next door neighbour who is a coach for liverpoool youth team; that Liverpool are signing a young leeds midfielder Sanchez Payne for £100,000 and as a sweetener they are loaning Daniel Pacheo to Leeds until January.

Deal will be done on tuesday I believe.

sanchez payne has jus signed his 1st pro contract yesterday along wiv 2 other leeds youngsters so give yr head a shake(6)(21)

I have a funny feeling that Pape Diakhate has already signed for Arsenal and will be announced right at the end of the transfer window.

Editor – Have you hard anything Proper regarding United transfers. . Papers are filling there columns with rubbish.Ferguson has constantly changed the subject when quizzed on transfer dealings.

AS PREVIOUSLY POSTED ON HERE NUMEROUS TIMES DURING THE PAST FEW MONTHS, SAF's MAIN PRIORITY IS TO SIGN ONE FROM A SHORLIST OF THREE [TWO PLAYING IN SPANISH LEAGUE BUT NOT FOR REAL AND ONE IN ITALY – ALTHOUGH HE INITIALLY DID HAVE TWO SCOUTED INTENSELY IN ITALY. THE PLAYER IN WHOM HIS INTEREST HAS BEEN DROPPED IS DIEGO.]. OSIL WAS ONLY A REAL POSSIBILITY IF FEE WAS AROUND £8M [CHECK PREVIOUS POST TO VERIFY THIS]. IT DOES APPEAR THAT HE IS MOVING CLOSER TO SIGNING ONE FROM HIS SHORTLIST. AS PREVIOUSLY NOTED, I WILL NAME ALL 3 WHEN MAIN SIGNING IS COMPLETED.

Serious interests being shown to bring Lindegaard to OT before the end of the 2010–11 season (either in the summer or winter window). Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was scouting the shot stopper in the game against Motherwell. He is 1 of the 3 Goalkeepers on SAF's shortlist which also includes S.Asenjo and Akinfeev. AFA Lindegaard is concerned, ManU must act swiftly as Celtic might be ready with an offer as early as next week.

Tom Craddock of Luton Town discussing terms with Norwich City, Barnet and Brentford also interested.

Pittman to Bournemouth but Southend hotshot Matt Paterson to replace him.

Ross McCormack has a host of clubs after his service but it looks like Derby County are favourites although both Celtic and Rangers are in.

Rumour that Lincoln City are looking tp bring in both a Premiership and a Championships striker.

Darius Vassell being courted by numerous clubs, but I hear that Leeds are favourites, at least two L1 clubs are in for him."

RANGERS NEWS

Hey ed, can you shed some light on the following?

Jelavic's name not in squad published on BBC website, is this an indication that something is afoot with his protracted transfer to the Teddy Bears? Is he perhaps known by a different name?

Really hope this one goes through, C'mon the Gers.

Copy / Paste from BBC website: Rapid Vienna: Hedl, Sonnleitner, Heikkinen, Katzer, Soma, Kayhan, Hoffmann, Kavlak, Hinum, Salihi, Nuhiu. Subs: Payer, Patocka, Drazan, Gartler, Saurer, Dober, Pehlivan. {editor's note – he has been removed from the Rapid squad at his own request to allow him to make his move to Rangers.}(38)(4)

"I have a friend who works at the Leeds United superstore as a stock manager. Apparantley he has received instructions from the very top of the club to make sure that they have plenty of the letter "V" in stock for shirt printing – apparantley they are close to unveiling a signing with this letter in his name.

Seems to fit in with the Vieira rumours – I doubt this is true, but stranger things have happened."

Maybe Van Der Vaart?

"I was in London recently, and my uncle had some paperwork to deal with at Downing Street, so I spoke to the guard while I was waiting, and he told me that a few deals were getting processed in the office, as they deal with passports and work permits, and they know about international calls etc."

I think the Downing Street guard may have misled you. I am afraid they don't deal with passports of work permits there at all.

"Ive been following the Neymar transfer and i feel he would add alot to a ageing strike force at Chelsea, its gone quite lately, does any one know of any Developments, No Bull Please"

Tom it is going to come down to money. I don't think Chelsea will pay the release clause which would put the decision in the hands of the player and his family; but Santos is not a wealthy club and the latest (and possibly final) offer may be too much to turn down. If we step back and think about what would be best for the player, then perhaps half the money up front and a season long loan to Santos with the transfer completing next summer might suit everyone. As long as Chelsea made the payment before the end of June 2011 there will be no revised financial rules applied to the transaction. The player comes to Chelsea a year older and is more likely to get in to the first team; Santos get a further year out of the player and much needed funding; Chelsea avoid having to account for the expenditure next season. What I don't know is if such an option would be considered for Neymar who would be a very expensive and reasonably high risk investment. But we should know over the next few days.

Sharkey.

{Editor's Note: Aside from mounting speculation about Raul Meireles and Andres Guardado there is nothing concrete. What does seem to be happening is a squad refresh to bring in some younger players this year meaning that less will be spent in the next couple of years in line with rule changes.} (5)(6)

And, an unamed Chilean.

While at first looks all this seems to be fantasy from a clear Blackburn fan (personally i prefer chelsea) everyone who is thinking he is an idiot needs to take a step back and look at this from a different perspective since league 1 became known as the premier league only four clubs have won it these four are Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Blackburn which nobody ever remembers they did. so they have the history and a lot of these players i think would be more than happy to come to this club it is an amazing club with a rich history and these players would more than likely try to take this club back to the glory days the only rumour i would say is stupid out of what you have said is the Bastian Schweinsteiger one he clearly does not fancy a move to the premier league and if he did everybody knows that Chelsea would be his first choice but apart from that i have to say in well done for thinking big

Roy Hodgson is looking at taking Charlie Austin from Swindon to Liverpool on a 2.5 year deal.

Charlie is English (born in Hungerford), and is highly rated by many in the game.

A deal of £1.5m plus Stephen Darby, Nathan Eccleston and David Amoo will be enough to get Austin in, and he will wear number 7 if he signs.

Other players departing Liverpool will be:

Kristian Nemeth – Millwall
Martin Kelly – Brighton
Lauri Dalla Valle – Sc thorpe
Peter Gulacsi – Swindon
Emilano Insua – Preston
Damien Plessis – Brighton(6)(24)

Chelsea are still hopeful Neymar will decide to come to London. His family are keen on the move, although his club Santos are wanting around 25m rather than the 22m on the table.
The other Brazilian they are trying to get is 17 y.o Lukaku from Anderlecht for 9m.
Ancelotti will then decide whether to keep Gael Kakuta or sell to Bayern Munich for around 12m.
Di Santos is being touted around Europe for 5m, but as yet no takers, so a loan deal to Wigan or PSV looks more likely.
The other decision is whether to sell Mancienne for 6m, with Ancelotti still not convinced about the young England player and make a move for 28m rated Luiz from Benfica.

1. Neymar has stated himself that he wants to develop in Brazil with Santos. Where did u get the idea that his family wants to move to London? His father is quoted as wanting Neymar to stay in Brazil. Even the Legend Pele has advised him against moving too early at his age. Also. Santos just put a 35M Euro tag on Neymar

2. Why the hell do they want to get rid of Kakuta? The kid's a phenomenon waiting to happen. He shines at the u19 tournament during the summer. Plus, Chelsea risked transfer ban trying to get him. Ur rumour does sounds ridiculous now init??

Get ur facts right mate. Even if its only a rumour, make it believable mate.

No rumour here. just some facts.

The Devils have finished business in the window. i'd really love for a reinforcement in the midfield. But SAF knows best.

I was in London recently, and my uncle had some paperwork to deal with at Downing Street, so I spoke to the guard while I was waiting, and he told me that a few deals were getting processed in the office, as they deal with passports and work permits, and they know about international calls etc.
Arsenal– The Squillaci rumours are true, Wenger is interested in him, sees him as a replacement for Silvestre. Wenger also is looking at Joris Mathijsen, Neven Subotic and Per Mertesacker(he played yesterday, so i don't know whether he is cup–tied or not) He wanted Mark Schwarzer as goalkeeper, but is now attempting to sign Shay Given as he is available and Fulham are being too adamant. Ricardo Montolivo may join as well, as Wenger is a big fan of his.
Chelsea– Ancellotti is happy with his squad, and sees no need to buy anyone, they may get Neymar, and loan him back, or they may buy Cutis Davies as defensive cover.
Tottenham– Redknapp wants around 3 signings to bolster his squad, all aroungd the 10–12 million mark, he's interested in Stipe Pletikosa as cover for Cudicini and Gomes, and he may offer Jenas plus cash for Parker as well. He wants a striker as well, as Defoe is injured, with Loic Remy and Connor Wickham being possibilities. (Editor, you seem to know that Mertesacker is staying skysports says the same, could you state any reason, as Mertesacker nor Arsenal have commented on this, and he would be a perfect fit) Thanks

To the Celtic fan that wrote this:

FACT.

if rangers get jelavic, they won't buy goodwullie numpty, goodwullie is only going to pursued if fail in jelavic deal which at this moment is unlikely with him been cup tied(HE ISN'T CUP TIED, HE HAS BEEN LEFT OUT OF THE SQUAD FOR TONIGHTS GAME AGAINST ASTON VILL SO YOUR WRONG ONCE AGAIN). where you been hiding under a rock. your facts are off the mark. (I THINK IT IS YOU THAT IS OFF THE MARK)

weiss was a target during summer of this year and rangers enquired about him, they followed there first enquiry up with a gen offer to man city, which man city happy for to get some first team football. as lack of creativity and real talent in rangers squad(AW RIGHT, I THOUGHT WE HAD LAST SEASONS PLAYER OF THE YEAR IN OUR SQUAD, AS WELL AS THE BEST DEFENDER IN SCOTLAND LAST YEAR ALSON) so he will play week in week out at rangers and gain champions league expierence also (YES, BECAUSE CELTIC CAN'T OFFER HIM THIS) FACT.

mexico have 2 friendlies this year against ecudor and columbia. not 4 matches FACT (WRONG, MEXICO ARE PLAYING ECUADOR 4TH SEPT, COLOMBIA 7TH SEPT & POLAND ON OCT 12TH, THEY ALSO POSTPONED A SCHEDULED FRIENDLY WITH CHILE). why do people lie and talk bull. who know nothing about football. just another bitter rangers fan. (YOU ARE THE ONE THAT HAS JUST BEEN PROVEN WRONG)

celtic are not interested in becchio of leeds never was. looking for a number 7, goalkeeper and another centre back. that's it. no more. and as far as celtic looking at jelavic no they are not also. westwood from coventry looking at and given, also looking at 3 centre backs and searching for a number 7 for celtic which the funds for mc geady will be used get facts straight first eh. . .

Still after Keane and could get him for £6million if spurs get into group stage when they'll sign Loic Remy"

Celtic didn't pull out the deal mate, uz just couldnt offer what we could (champ league), that's why he has been told to join us. As for the keane rumour, i thought these stupid rumours had stopped? He's gona feature for spurs this year, in champ league n EPL. Plus, if u check your news, Loic Remy is having a medical at marseille as i post. As for the sammy is better comment, am gona leave that alone as its a ridiculous thing to say. Anyway, u won't have to worry, as he's joining the mighty gers.

Well it seems like the Jelavic deal will finally take place as soon as today, Rapid have confirmed it themselves that he will be joining the SPL CHAMPIONS!, this should now quash and silly rumours of the likes of Owen etc. Beattie and Jelavic. Miller still being linked with a move away, tho I find this unlikely as he has finally landed the no9 shirt this season! Weiss also looks likely to join after chosing the champions league over the poor Celtic team and their hoped participation in the europa cup. Walter will go back into the market to strengthen at the back. pavin the way for Boogie to head out in Jan with replacement setttled at club. .

IN WALTER WE TRUST
BRINGING HOME THE TITLE

To everyone saying that Rangers have pipped Celtic to signing Weiss, your all wrong, Celtic pulled out of the deal after we missed out on Bellamy. Was part of the bellamy deal as "favour" favour to City. to The guy who wrote that Jelavic to be new No7. hope not. Sammy is better.

Got to also Commend Rangers, Walter Smith and Pains me but Martin Bain, for pulling off another couple of excellent signings in Weiss and Jelavic.

Looking like Rasmussen and Fortune will leave this club in the next few days to be replaced by none other than Robbie Keane. Lennon will go all out to get the signature of Keane and it looks like he will be signed on a 3 year deal costing around £6m and some pretty big wages as well as a huge signing on fee (I'm being told it could be as much as £2m to keep him sweet).(25)(27)

Manchester United Transfer News

Anyone find curious that this Summer, Real Madrid have brought in 5 players. . all midfielders!

Canales (CM/ Wing)
Angel Di Maria (Wing)
Ozil (AM)
Pedro Leon (Wing)
Khedira (DM)

What about their existing midfielders?. .

Alonso (CM)
Gago (DM)
Van der Vaart (AM)
Diarra (DM)
Granero (CM)
Kaka (AM)
Drenthe (Wing)

They can't all fit into one team, therefore I suspect that we could see 'the old friends' agree a deal for one of the above to come over to Old Trafford. Everyone keeps mentioning VDV since my post on Sunday (which put the idea in most peoples head), but I suspect that SAF might just be interested in Gago. Even though he's a defensive midfielder, the recent emergence of Paul Scholes would be a major reason for flirting with a DM rather than a AM. Plus Gago is only 24, an Argentine international, great sell–on value, and very much suited for the English game. Add onto this the dissapointing progress by Carrick, Hargreaves injury, the signing of Bebe – who I suspect SAF will try and convert into a AM (similar attributes to Ronaldinho in Bebe's play – direct, great technique, vision, etc) the possible transfer for Gago starts to make some sense.

Comments always welcome.

Thanks,

Vassell doesn't currently have a club, so has no wages to drop, Leeds won't pay enough to get McCormack(too many other clubs interested) and it's Bellamy, not Bellemy.


To the guy who said the above, yes he's a free agent but he still will have a wage demand and it is this that he must drop. Before you open your mouth and think you're saying something clever please don't because you've just embarassed yourself through your own ignorance and pettiness.(9)(34)

MANCHESTER UNITED

With the summer signing of centre back, Chris Smalling, the United defender who has dropped down the pecking order is Wes Brown.

He announced his England "retirement" before the Hungary international, and with SAF picking Vidic and Jonny Evans in the middle, Smalling on the bench, and Ferdinand to follow when he's back from injury, Wes may find there is no room at OT. Even right back is crowded. John O'Shea and Rafael are ahead of him, and Marnick Vermijl (the young Belgian signing) is now in the Reserves along with Gary Neville, and Wes' younger brother, Reece. Fergie can also pick Fabio at right back, and Ritchie De Laet can play all across the back four.

I can see Wes Brown being bought by one of SAF's mates like David Moyes for Everton, or Steve Bruce at Sunderland. It may be his only hope of some playing time.(52)(19)

(And yes I do remember that we have done buisness with them before – Ashley Cole for Gallas + 5 million –But times are different now)

Even if we do lose Clichy to someone, Arsenal should easily be able to place their trust in Keiran Gibbs for the LB role.

"I havent posted on this site for quite a long time because I only post the truth. When I read some of the rumours on here, espescially from Arsenal fans I shake my head in disbelief – you all need to stop talking such rubbish. I was quite happy when Newcastle earned promotion back to the EPL but unfortunately because of that we have to put up with their dreamer supporters chatting bilge on here. Let me tell you Mike Ashley will never give Newcastle a marquee signing.
Now onto my news. I work at Old Trafford, I won't specify where for fear of my job but i have spoken to various players over the last week or so, some of them I know quite well and I have been begging them for the gossip. Two high profile Man Utd players have informed me that SAF is working to bring Rafael Van Der Vaart to the club and that talks between Ferguson and Mourinho have already began. I asked how likely it was that the deal would be finalised in this window and one of the players told me that it was nearly done. I am quite sure that this will come to fruition. My last post confirmed that Man Utd would purchase Chris Smalling from Fulham 3 weeks before it happened. This post will become reality too. Trust me."

Leeds United news:

Henri Lansbury set to sign from Arsenal this week

Darius Vassell could be making his way to Elland Road before the end of the transfer window, if he agree's to drop wages

Also Leeds join race for powerful striker Ross Mccormack, after Craig Bellemy signs for Bluebirds


Vassell doesn't currently have a club, so has no wages to drop, Leeds won't pay enough to get McCormack(too many other clubs interested) and it's Bellamy, not Bellemy.(20)(35)

 

 19 Aug 2010 10:43:59
Leeds to try to sign Lansbury from Arsenal and McCormack from Cardiff on season long loans. The Honduran trialist didn't play because he didn't have clearance, but did play in the closed doors match against York. A decision will be made today or tomorrow on his future after his extra week is up.

EDEDED ED please and nufc news . . . . . thanks :)

{Editor's Note: I think Hughton is finding it tough. Target Weiss is heading to Scotland to play for Rangers and FC Twente' s Ivorian Cheick Tiote (who was under everyone's radar) is attracting offers from elsewhere. As for Ben Arfa, I refer you to my notes from yesterday – you may need to start supporting Werder Bremen if you want to watch him next season.}

I havent posted on this site for quite a long time because I only post the truth. When I read some of the rumours on here, espescially from Arsenal fans I shake my head in disbelief – you all need to stop talking such rubbish. I was quite happy when Newcastle earned promotion back to the EPL but unfortunately because of that we have to put up with their dreamer supporters chatting bilge on here. Let me tell you Mike Ashley will never give Newcastle a marquee signing.
Now onto my news. I work at Old Trafford, I won't specify where for fear of my job but i have spoken to various players over the last week or so, some of them I know quite well and I have been begging them for the gossip. Two high profile Man Utd players have informed me that SAF is working to bring Rafael Van Der Vaart to the club and that talks between Ferguson and Mourinho have already began. I asked how likely it was that the deal would be finalised in this window and one of the players told me that it was nearly done. I am quite sure that this will come to fruition. My last post confirmed that Man Utd would purchase Chris Smalling from Fulham 3 weeks before it happened. This post will become reality too. Trust me.(31)(25)

If spurs get into group stage of champions league they will sign loic remy for £13m and sell Robbie Keane to Villa, Blackburn or Celtic for arount £6m. Keane wants to stay but enjoyed his time in Glasgow so could move back there if the Celtic board splash the cash.

The player himself (apparantly) prefers a move to celtic as he can still play in europe but not be cup tied of he returns to man utd ! Although is considering rangers as he is a fan of sir walter. Don't know how true this is just what I've heard.

So, Celtic havent spent a penny this transfer window again. The only decent player they have signed is Juarez, and given Mexico have 5 friendlies penciled in before end of year, won't play much.

Rangers today will announce the signing of Weiss, (Lennon's top plausable target) and Jelavic. Goodwillie and Perea to sign at the weekend, with Welcome and Barazite on deadline day.

There is no way Spurs are going to let Robbie Keane sign for Celtic on loan, especially now that Defoe looks to be injured for the next few weeks/ months with a groin injury(SSN today).

If they are wanting rid of him then they will be buying a top class striker first.They will then be looking to recoup some of the cash they have paid out so there is no way they will put him out on loan.

So all of this talk about Keane's wife wanting to move back to Glasgow's west end is total MINCE!(28)(33)

Ed, Ed, Ed. . what the hell is happening? If EDUarDo becomes an editor ill pack my bag and go join Craig at Cardiff! And it seems to me Chris! has become the new WATP! Anyway to more pressing issues. . how do i become an ed, do u all hang out, how did u meet! s t sorry had that annoying t t Eduardo in my head.

Do you think that Chelsea is treading a fine line in the Neymar transfer and what chance do we have of getting him? I would think the best option would be buy him and loan him back for the season, although it seems we are yet to think of that! In your all knowing opinion, will Chelsea sign him?

{Editor's Note: I am sure you have nothing to fear about the Eds. Now neymar. No fine line, there were discussions with his father, his agent and a representative of Santos in New York last week – there is no "tapping up" or anything underhand going on at all. Santos are doing what they can to get the full buyout clause met. The first bid from Chelsea was much too low to be acceptable and they are now looking at a further bid today or tomorrow which they are saying will be a "take it or leave" offer. This will fall short of the buyout clause by perhaps £5M but may be acceptable to Santos who need the money. If that fails – it is a case of payout or walk. I don't think at that price loaning the player back is an option – paying perhaps £5M now and letting the player stay a year and then paying the balance then might be – I don't know.) (19)(8)

I'd love to see Smith back at Leeds but it will NEVER happen. Hopefully we sign Jay Simpson but doubt it!
