On radio city today (local station in Liverpool) I'm sure I heard that Liverpool and Arsenal are battling over the signature of robiniho, as Real Madrid are desperate to sell in order to raise funds for the sale of Kaka.
I've had a look around the usual footy sites since though and havn't heard anything on the subject, which you would think they would be all over. can anyone deny/ confirm this? if it's true then this could be the answer to our (Lfc's) problems in wide areas, if not then I'm so excited about who were going to sign that I'm starting to hear rumours which aren't being said (a disease shared with many on here).
Millwall to take pablo Mills on trial after his release from Rotherham with a view to a permanent move to the new den.
Coventry City No takeover
Expect to hear this in the next 10 days, with no transfer budget and a very expensive court case, Dowie will leave.
Liverpool will unveil three players at the begining of next week. Rafa has had his eye on the Spanish league that's a fact. He has been looking to bring in some fresh faces, some exiting talent that will bring a better attacking flow. Torres will be the main target unveiled for a fee of around 13 million plus Mark gonzales going the other way on loan. The second is jesus Navas, an attacking winger seen to be able to push Pennant for a first team place. he will sign for around 6 million plus further add ons. Finally Robinho will be the surprise capture, Real Madrid are sure to strengthen the team after winning the Spanish league and Robinho will drop down the pecking order. therefore he will sign in the region of 11 million and real get first opotion on xabi Alonso, should he decide in the future to return to Spain. all in all 30 million spent. the futures bright, the futures scouse. NELLY
Hope Alan Smith goes 2 Boro 4 6 mill because I would be devastated if he signed 4 Everton we sold shrek 2 United we don't want donkey back BLUENOSE SLIM
Whoever kept putting that Sullivan and Panther were going to join Argyle probably feels like a right prat now as Panther has signed a 1 year deal at York and Sullivan has just signed for Doncaster. Also De Zeuew is expected to stay in the north and is expected to sign for Leicester and Jody Morris is and old has been who we would never want down here
Argyle have made if fairly clear which British based players are at the top of Holloway's shopping list Porter, Gallen&Sinclair as well as un–named European trialists coming in 2 weeks
As for the West Brom fan why would Argyle sell 2 of their most gifted players for just £1.8 million especially after 1 of them has only just arrived for Argyle's record transfer fee
I am a close friend of a Fulham director. Everton have been in contact with Fulham over the availability of Diop, who is out of favour with Sanchez. Fulham value him at 4 million, but Everton are prepared to offer 3 million pounds plus Gary Naysmith, a long term target for Fulham.
Diego Milito has opened with Liverpool for a deal in the region of 15 million. Fernando Torres will be the other striker to greet Melwood. it looks as if moalouda is going Chelsea so we will try again for David silva and need a right sided midfielder this being Mancini/ simoa also a centre back is needed and this will be from the Spanish league again. plus a heap of young players will arrive =
Just heard this from my cousin who is involved in Chelsea Football club and he has told me that Liverpool FC have approached Shaun Wright–Philips who, at the moment, is considering the move. this is clearly the start of the big name transfers to Liverpool this summer.
Arsene Wenger has two deals in the pipeline:
1. Torres from Atletico Madrid if Reyes is not bought by Real Madrid (as Reyes is part of the deal)
Another option Arsene discussed with A. Madrid is a swap of the Argentinian Sergio Aguero with Reyes + cash. )
2. Arsene has been looking for cover for Gilberto in someone who could take over once Gilberto retires – Thiago Motta is the player he has decided could fill that position. That's is one of the reason of his meeting with Barcelona's representative.
A little bird told me so.
Liverpool are planning an outrageous bid on Athletico Madrid who did not get European qualification. They are looking to sign:
A combined fee is likely to reach 55 million. Athletico are reluctant but all of these players want to join Liverpool. Athletico will ask for Garcia, Cisse, Arbeloa and Gonzalez is exchange. Rafa doesn't want to sell Garcia or Arbeloa but will reluctantly agree. This will make the deal worth around 40 million + the 4 players.
Liverpool will then look to sign Micah Richards for 15 million and a cheap goalkeeper for back up to Reina.
I work at Seaham Hall as a waiter and have just seen none other than Marcus Stewart deep in conversation with Danny Wilson of Hartlepool and another bloke, possibly an agent. It all looked very amicable and ended with handshakes and smiles all round.
I know because I served the drinks.
With Spurs tipped to get Bent. The mighty Aston Villa are going to offer Darren Bent the chance to join a big club.
Spurs challenge Hammers, Charlton and Fulham for third biggest club in London. Villa are on their own as the biggest club in the midlands. With the investments from the new owners in the squad. Villa could well be challenging for CL this year.
ManUnited will probably not buy a striker any more as Rossi has returned and Ferguson has decided to give him a chance in the first team. Considering they have Rooney, Smith, Rossi, Solskjaer and Saha, they really don't need a new striker. However, they will opt for a cheaper striker if Fergie sells Saha for around £10 million. Options for strikers are Fabio Quagliarelli (likely), Torres (possible) and Michael Owen (not going to happen) . Richardson, Silvestre and possible, Eagles will also be leaving this season while Heinze WILL stay. Mark my words.
Norwich are to bid 200,000 for Dean Marney and he is also being joined by Billy Sharp, he's down Carrow Road 4 talks 2day n now Wolves "look set" to sign freedy Eastwood they are out of the race. Norwich have already signed jon ostemboor n expect a couple more frees before the start of the season. Also Norwich will bid for David Marshall in a last 750,000 bid n if they don't get him expect alexander or coyne to arrive. Lastly after missing out on Billy Jones they will sign Kevin nicholls from Luton.
Super Blues Information. With the Yeung Hong Kong takeover almost complete (being kept V. quiet), Brucie was asked to put together his wishlist. Sullivan and the Golds have always said they would only sell if the clubs future was in good hands. Apparently Yeung has promised Bruce upwards of £25 million and anything from sales. Out will go: Forsell (1 million Hannover), Danns (500k Notts Forest), N'gotty (Already Gone), Tebily (Released). Brucie is now preparing bids for: Nugent 5 million, Ridgewell 3 million, Latka 2.5 million, Reo–Coker 8 million, Jerome Thomas 4 million, and a couple of other foreign youngsters.
BRUCIES BLUES FOR THE TITLE.
Leicester City are set to make a shock signing of Billy Sharp, I can literally swear to my life. I am from Leicester and my BROTHER is BILLY SHARP of Scunthorpe yes. believe me now. I couldn't find another place where you can put in your own comments. Apparently he said he likes the stadium, wants Premiership football in a few years (who doesn't) wants to come and live with me in anstey, Leicester and has had personal recommendation from izale McLeod who was also linked with Leicester as I've known izale since I went school with him in 95.
Shaun Wright–Phillips, Tim Cahill, Vicente (Valencia), David Nugent&Freddy Adu, are West Ham's targets for the Summer. Alan Curbishley has identified these as his most prioritised tagets. (j#m)
Kenny Miller won't be going to Hearts, His family live in Edinburgh and he uses a gym near Musselburgh. Oh and he drives a big american car with those childish spinners on the wheels (all respect has gone for him now).
Im not gona go on about being some guy with
authority, you know people say theyre a friend of a friend of a cousin of a guy that's a cleaner at the Emirates and hears all the rumours, I'm just a regular Arsenal fan and I'm gona cut to the chase, these rumnours are 100% true.
AW's shopping list:
Richards (Man City)
These transfers WILL be sealed over the next couple of months, I repeat WILL happen. Now as for all this rubbish about Henry going to Barcelona for 22 million for sure is all a load of rubbish. Chill out fellow gooners, the king is staying put on his throne. Henry is said to have threatened to sue the reporter for that French newspaper that reported Henry will definitely go to Barcelona. Barcelona will just have to get over themselves and make do with Eto, as will Liverpool just have to get on with it and make do with Kuyt and Crouch and AC Milan just have to make do with Gilardino and Inzaghi. Milan and Liverpool WERE also in the race for Henrys signature, but won't get him of course. Why would Henry pose in the new away kit if he was just going to walk out afterwards?
These rumours WILL all happen and if any more news comes in ill keep updating U. Peace out
Man United Squad List for 07/ 08 season:
1 Van Der Sar
There will be no signing of a stiker for the Red Devils despite talk of Torres, GudJohnsen and Quagliarella signing. Instead, Giuseppe Rossi will be used as a first team regular after impressing in the under–21 championships and on loan at Parma. Leaving the club will be Danny Simpson, Mikael Silvestre and Kieran Richardson. Alan Smith departing for Sunderland, Everton or Middlesbrough is rubbish.
– > Crosbie
With jo kuffour now a done deal expect the following the arrive:
ainsworth – QPR
wilson – pompey
gosney – afc totten
llalana – saints
de zeuww – free
akinfenwa – Swansea
Jason Koumas will not be joining Newcastle as they already have James Milner and Damien Duff as their first choice wingers and Koumas wants first team football at a Premiership club. Freddy Eastwood will join Wolves. Despite Juande Ramos still being the favourite to be the Manchetser City manager next season he will not be. The proposed takeover by Thaksin Shinawatra will not happen because of serious doubts over his financial future. John Wardle will not sell the club and will therefore continue as chairman next season. Paul Jewell will be appointed as manager. Bernado Corradi, Georgios Samaras and Darius Vassell will leave the club paving the way for City to invest in proven goalscoring talent. Morten Gamst Pedersen will sign for Liverpool in a cash + player deal involving Craig Bellamy who will replace the departing Benni McCarthy who will re–join former boss Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.
Riquelme for Everton. Don't make me laugh, and I'm as blue as they come. Jagielka is are only target at the moment. We are also looking for a left winger but no deals are currently in the offing.
The wife, yes the wife, has just told me that someone saw Ruud Van Nistelrooy being driven out of Anfield a couple of weeks ago. She got the story from someone in her work. We both work in Liverpool, so it's local info.
Not convinced myself, why would someone who recieved so much abuse at Anfield come to us?
My mates girlfriend works as a P. A to a football agent and Darren Bent will join Liverpool. Only sticking point will be the fee– Charlton want a flat fee, but Liverpool are trying to get a lower fee with add ons.
There are also strong rumours in the industry that Carlos Tevez will go to Liverpool and turn down Inter Milan. Bellamy has been offered as an incentive, but West Ham aren't that keen – Villa want him, but won't pay more than £8 million
Daniel Alves won't be signing for Liverpool though, now that Real Madrid want him.
Malouda is close to accepting a deal to join Liverpool in July. Arsenal were interested but will be happy to get the young Dutch star Babel.
Arsenal will sign Alexandre Pato 12 million and Renato Augusto 14 million but they are not likly to get work permits so they are likly to be loaned out. Song will join Sunderland on a season long loan and Djourou loaned to Birminham. Torres will be signed for 5 million plus Reyes and meride and vela on year loans. The other arivals will be Ryan bable 6 million and Malouda 14 million plus Traore on loan. They will also sign Richards but he will stay on loan at Man city until African Cup of Nations and after that will rejoin them on loan until end of season.
How's this for a signing? Eggert Magnusson has been in Argentina the last two days trying to wrap up the signing of Riquelme.He will sign next week in a deal that will make the rest of the Premier teams sit up and take note that West Ham mean business.What a season we are in for at Upton Park. Come on you irons.
