Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
To the chelski fan, get real henry would never sign for the money grabbers, he wudnt even join barca let alone chelski, ronaldinho the same and id hate to see kaka at cheslki hes a way too exciting and honest a player to join abaramovichs boring lot. why do people keep linking arsenal to central midfielders, we have diaby and demilson to come in, wenger has great faith in diaby and after seeing him in training and in games last season he is a raw talent, havnt seen much of denilson but have heard very good things. ribery will come in summer, bendtner will b given a chance, if not expect a striker to come in, probably huntelaar, torres is overated and too expensive (also may not cut it in prem league), also a few young english players to come in over jan/summer with the new champs lge regulations. a definite is a new keeper and with wenger preferring experience in goal i expect a renewed bid for buffon jan, gordon is unlikely as wenger has tried young keepers before (r wright)without success.
on the departure front i hate to say it but the legend that is freddie ljungberg may b about to leave, hleb may also b on his way unless he can pick up form. aliaadiere will def leave next summer despite good reserve form.Confirming the rumour posted 18/10/06 - I have also been told that Steven Gerrard is leaving at the end of the season, apparently to Barcelona rather than Madrid. It will be a straight cash deal rather than cash + players & Rafa will invest the money in English talent. From what I was told, Nolan, Richards & Bale will arrive along with one BIG name but the person who told me all this had no idea who that was (or woulnd't say!). He did let slip however that the player in question was not English.= = Given= =
Sidwell= =Parker= =Emre= Duff
= Martins= Beattie=
GR to raid the Championship clubs with a complete re-work of the defence after Saturdays and the last 10 years defensive display. Bridge to arrive in the summer with Robinson adding some steal in Jan with Upson pending on his recovery from his injury.
Beattie head to SJP for 4 mil AND Nugent for 4mil.
Freedy SHOULD be spending around 18 mil this winter.Sidwell - 3mil or SWP loan
Upson - 5mil
Beattie - 4mil
Nugent - 3mil
17mil spending in Jan.
GR may go for the more expensive less injury prone Curtis Davies to partner Robinson at LB. Mowbray have his own shopping list but not the required funds.With Milner leaving and hopefull Luque we may keep our spending down to under 12mil. And boy do we need it.Martin O'Neill will not sign Shaun Maloney from Celtic as Shauny-boy struggled to get a game under him at Celtic- playing him as a striker. He doesn't rate him. O'Neill loves his old favourites- even when they are finshed- so don't be suprised when Neil Lennon joins up with his old team-mates and signs in Jan or Alan Thompson- who O'Neill loves- he stuck by him at Celtic even when he was just plain embaressing and refused to drop him. Bobo Balde will struggle to get back in the Celtic team as either Caldwell or McManus will not be dropped, so O'Neill will make his move for Balde. Finally O'Neil will snap up another old guy in none other than Ranger's keeper Stefan Klos.
BOONDOCKCeltic Transfer News
Maloney-gunna sign a new contract FACT
Thommo-he won't leave his 40k a week
Pearson-One of WGS bhoys.
Aiden Mcgeady-Man Utd(giggs replacement)
Riordan-Loan West Brom
Richard Dunne-2 million
Darren Fletcher-Aiden swap deal
Adu-LoanAfter that awful performane by hoyte and djourou at moscow expect a move by arsenal 4 newcastle's parker .I am a close friend of a high up staff member at chelsea.
yesterday night a meeting was held with representatives from atletico madrid over a 42 mil move for tottes to be complete at the end of the season, with 1 chelsea squad meber going the other way, however i am not sure who that is yet.I really don't see arsenal sign Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, unless someone leave. but their problem still lays on defence. manU have targeted McGeady as the best replacement for giggs and mcGeady will want to follow his favourite player's George Best foot steps at manchester united.To the 'football genius' who said PLG will buy simon walton from leeds. leeds utd sold walton to charlton in the summer and he is now on loan at ipswich. another example of an armchair footy fan or someone who found him on last years footy manager.
now for some true football rumours!
manure have put an instalment on torres (i am sad to say) but only as a first option should the player decide to leave Athletico.
gareth bale will not be going anywhere until the end of the season (even if arsenal set the deal up in jan) to avoid the media crap walcott had to deal with.
beckham will not go to USA yet. not for at least 18 months as he knows he still has a lot to offer. could go anywhere though. maybe a milan club cos is missus would luv it. we all no shes the boss!
Darren Bent will leave Charlton with a host a clubs in a bidding war.
Chelsea are possibly going to sign Barthez over the next couple of days depending on cudicinis fitness.
Finally matthew kigallon (newc) and david healy (charlton) will be sold by leeds in for 3m each.
on the current bungs situation both portsmouth and soton will be brought up into it. due to a certain mr redknaps greed.
and please will ppl stop puting squad lists on this website. we don't care what your team might be next season!
and no my auntie does not know anyone who cooks hot dogs at old trafford or my gramps does not clean the toilet at chavski. these are from proper contacts so watch this space.
LUFC forever folks.
The agent.To all those people saying Anton Ferdinand is off to Liverpool/Villa for £7m or more - you are fools - he's worth about £2m at most and you can have him, he's useless!
However after the takeover happens West Ham may sign.
Toton Zola Moukoko
I heard this from my uncles neighbour who is taxi driver in Upton Park and drives many players around.I have good information that Peter Grant has made enquires with Alan Pardew to the availability of James Collins, Jonathon Spector and Tyrone Mears
From a nameless Pinkun MemberTo the liverpool fan who thinks they will sign Ledley King for 9mil,Ledley King is Tottenham's captain and is already a legend to spurs fans, selling him for anything less than 20mil would be an insult as he is probably englands quickest cb and is better than any other cb on the ball, and in my opinion he should start for england if Mclaren picked players with ability over those with a bigger reputation.
However ive heard spurs will be making an offer for curtis davies (4mil + davenport + stalteri) and will be searching for a left midfielder but not m.petrov as he is out for the season, so they will go for downing but only offer up to 7mil, or Pedersen. They will also sign a striker as mido or defoe could leave in january but this is unlikely but if they do spurs will go for huntelaar, babel or D.BentTo the guy who said Rangers would sign Simon Walton from Leeds for £1,500,000 is a lie he plays for leeds so please sort it out.
Man United / Liverpool or any british club besides chelsea will not sign torres due to they will not spend that much money on a striker not proven in the prem.
United will sign hargreaves and Nani that will be all.
To the championship - Steve bruce will be sacked without a doubt as birminham should be a premiship team, Southend United manager Steve Tilson is staying with the shrimpers as is hotshot Freddy EastwoodCeltic will sign whaley from preston for 1.5 million strachan also has his eye on kieron richardsonYou can all pack in sending your silly nonsense about Darren Huckerby-Celtic? No chance. Burnley-don't make me laugh! Listen. He is 31 and in the last year of his present Norwich deal. He will, in all likelihood be offered a new one in the New Year and will be happy to sign it-he and his family are settled in Norfolk, children at school etc. He has publicly quoted, on numerous occasions, that, if Norwich don't offer him a new deal (unlikely) he will retire as they are his last club. Debate over.Mufc might offload o'shea. m g pedersen to replace giggs. hargreaves will strengthen mufc midfield. torres to sharpen mufc attack. ther will be a new addition at right back to cover gary neville. new gk to be at mufc by 07/08 season. mufc also considered joe cole to replace scholes.All out at the Baggies, with Curtis Davies, Paul Robinson and now Pearson being strongly linked to Newcastle. Pearson being touted as GR's new number 2.Earnshaw to sign new 3 year deal with norwich in januaryMuamba is NOT signing for Birmingham permanently, he is considered by Arsenal as the new PV4 and in the future will partner Cesc Fabregas in the Gunners midfield.
Arsenal to sign Gordon and Ribery.Real Madrid will sign a lot of young talent for the future as the current Galactios at the club are ageing. So anyway transfers in january for real are Gago of Boca Juniors for £14,000,000 and Brazilian left back Marcelo for £8,000,000 i have seen this guy and hes really good. I also beleive Kerlon could be on his way to real madrid too despite the media claming he going to manchester united real are currently in talks with the highly rated striker and could move for £12,000,000. Now for the summer the main player real want is non other than steven gerrard of liverpool reportedley steven is very unhappy at the fact of playing on the right as benitz prefers to play Alonso and Sissiko in the centre of midfeild. Steven Gerrard coudnt move to any other club in England despite alomost moveing to chelsea a year ago he would rather make a move to spain and real would be his 1st choice. He could move next summer to the Bernabeu for £40,000,000 and this looks most likely. The second signing in the summer will be Kaka of ac milan a promise made by real madrid president roman calderon and will move for £30,000,000 and all this talk about him moveing to chelsea is totally false the only reason chelsea shown intrest this year was to block the real madrid intrest going any further as chelsea were mad due to the fact that real madrid got their man fabio canavaro despite interest from the english champions. Also Real will look at sevilla right back daniel alves and should move unless liverpool beat madrid to his signature. I will also mention c.ronaldo of man united he is currently stressed from the booing of the english fans despite his recent good form. Ronaldo could easily move if real come knocking with a large bid and would jump at the chance to leave although he loves the club. Players leaving real madrid are Baptista to arsenal will become pernament and will sign a 4 year contract with the gunners allo
wing reyes to stay where he is. Also expect to see Antanio Cassano move to Juvetnus or Roma. As for Robinho leaving he isn't as he loves life in madrid where he and his family are happy. David Beckham will sign a 2 year deal along with roberto carlos and will both end there careers there. i am unsure about raul but if he keeps playing like he is right now he will stay. The team should look like this
Alves Ramos Canavaro Carlos
Beckham Diarra C.ronaldo
Subs:Emerson,Gago,Marcelo,Robinho,Cicinho,Raul watch this spaceBenitez will only cash in on one the central midfield trio and it won't be Momo. Expect to see Xabi at Real next yr, they've made noises about him for 3 seasons now.Aston Villa are going to try and sign Jermain Defoe in January with a bid of around £8.5 million.
