ARSENAL TO SIGN N. ANELKA ON TUESDAY 19TH JUNE. IT IS A DONE DEAL AND I AM 100% IT WILL GO THROUGH. SORRY TO ANY ARSENAL FANS WHO LIKE ME ARE DISAPPOINTED OF THE RETURN OF THE PRODIGAL SON.
Crystal Palace will sign Chelsea starlet jimmy sith on loan soon.
Charlton will sign Freddy Eastwood for 1.5 million and will sign Scott Carson back on loan. 100% TRUE
Everton breaking news
Iam cousins with James Vaughan and he has told me Everton are in talks with Inter Milan's Adriano.
Apparently he could cost up to 15 mill may see Cahill going the other way
Quick news for you here. Firstly I've heard that De Guzman from Feyenoord is keen on a move to the Prem with Chelsea, Newcastle, Arsenal, Liverpool and Boro are interested. Secondly, with Ribery moving to Bayern, they will move for unwanted Makelele as Chelsea have Mikel, Woods and Diarra coming through the ranks. Arsenal want Babel accordin to the club's spokespeople. Also, its rumoured that Jose is stil in the Hunt for a new striker, and could mean that Sheva is on the way out, even though he's a fan favourite. Targets go as wide as Chun–Soo (ridiculous but linked), McCarthy, Torres, Tevez and Adriano. I can see the 07/ 08 season being a classic. Peace
Word has it Coventry City boss Iain Dowie is hoping to sign the following:
Gary Borrowdale (C Palace–£100k)
Clinton Morrison (C Palace–£600k)
Alan Lee (Ipswich–£500k)
Andy Todd (Blackburn–Free)
Simon Walton (Charlton–Loan)
Since Athletico slapped a transfer price of 24 million on Fernando Torres, interest from other clubs has dropped. This is not what Athletico intended to do. To make other clubs gain interest again, they will make Torres available for 19 million. Liverpool are favourites but the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs, Barcelona and AC Milan are all interested. Liverpool's first choice striker is now Torres and Torres wants to move to Anfield. The only stumbling block is that Liverpool are only willing to offer 16 million and then future add ons. Athletico will enquire about Luis Garcia + Mark Gonzalez as part of the package (Gonzalez's transfer to Betis has fallen through) Liverpool will sign Torres for 12 million + Garcia + Gonzalez.
Villa to be busy next week. They will buy 4 players. They will be; Jermaine definitelye 100%, Wesley Snijder 100%, Appiah 100% and the coup of the summer arjen Robben for £16 million 100%. All these will 100% happen wait and see. The Villa park man
Man United will not sign another striker as SAF has Rossi back and will keep smudge and ole. Saha will stay aswell. Also Man City will get coleman as there new manager and he will bring in volz to replace Danny Mills who has offers from Derby and hull. Also there will be no takeover at Man City, the city board seem it will to big a risk for the thai to takeover. Torres will not join United he is over–rated and well and truly over–priced
Millwall to sign out of contract Rotherham defender pablo Mills on a 2 year deal.
Arsenal Fc News
Arsenal will Sign Torres on Tuesday 19 June 2007
the deal will involve Reyes plus 5 million and Fran merida one a years loan deal. This has come from a source within The Arsenalnal Background staff. 100% Fact
Arsenal's Freddie Ljunberg was in Sunderland last week to discuss a move.
Anelka and Wenger were talking in the vip lounge for 45 mins at heathrow. I can only hope they were talking about wedding plans or something because we don't want him back at Arsenal
In a change of mind by Michael Owen, he will be staying at Newcastle which means Ryan Babel will not be coming, unfortunate or not. So this may be good news for some of us to be keeping the most greedy person in England.
However I now have some more good news for you. These are the players that Newcastle have made a bid for:
David Rozehnal (2.2 mil)
Wayne Bridge (3.9 mil (ACCEPTED))
Habib Beye (3.4 mil (ACCEPTED) )
Sami Hyypia (Free (ACCEPTED) )
Dani Alves ( 14.9 Mil (ACCEPTED) ) ( Reluctant to go without champions league)
Shaun Wright–Philips (6.5 mil (ACCEPTED) ) (Reluctant to leave)
Maceo Rigters (5.4 mil )
Fredi Kanoute (3.2 mil )
Don't get excited about Alves probably won't sign because of Europe.
Recently heard from a quite good source that Rangers will sign Stevie Naismith from Kilmarnock for money + Filip Sebo and Steven Lennon going there on a season–long loan. Sebo apparently wants a year in Scottish football away from Rangers to adapt to our football.
I have just recieved word off a reliable source, that a certain kenny Miller has been spotted in the area of edinburgh, this looks likely that Hearts are set to buy a well establsihed talented player, who has fallen out of favour due to his dip in form and the performances of the Celtic strike force, this rumour is 60 – 70% accurate, bring on Miller
Celtic to push the boat out in their attempts to sign Craig Bellamy from Liverpool. A happy medium will be sorted out between the clubs as Bellamy is desperate to join up again with the Hoops and Benitez wants him off the wage bill. Celtic fans can forget, however, the sight of Appiah, Giuly, or Gudjonsen as the deal for Bellamy will be the biggest of their summer dealings. They will see another 2 signings with one of the 2 reported Italians joining and another defender. Thomas Gravesen, meanwhile, has hinted that he would like to stay, but Strachan is adamant he will be out the door as soon as a reasonable offer comes.
Arsenal will sign Ryan Babel within the next 2 weeks. Ljungberg will move on as and when the deal is done
Arsene Wenger is considering letting Henry join Barcelona but this will only happen if Eto'o comes the other way.
If Barca play hard ball, Wenger has been looking into the possibility of signing Fernando Torres from Athletico Madrid using Reyes as bait. Athletico are desperate to land Reyes especially after his heroics for Real on Sunday. Torres on the other hand is desperate for European football and would jump at the chance to link up with Cesc Fabregas.
Don't expect too many signings this Summer. Wenger may bring in another defender to help out when Eboue and Toure go on African Nations duty and it looks like Senderos will be on his way out after failing to impress. And he is more than happy with his midfield he expects Diaby, Denilson and Walcott to contribute more this season.
With no major injuries, unlike last season, we'll have a strong side next year. Expect Arsene to put a lot of faith in Cesc and Robin.

Liverpool have submitted their revised stadium plans to the council today (18th) and are due to publicly announce them to the world next Thursday (28th) What people don't know is that the press will be greeted by Henry, Teves, Alves&David Silva. All the deals have been done but the new owners want to make a statement of intent by showing them&the new stadium off at the same time for maximum impact.
