Info from inside united very reliable source. Remember me once it is true.
  Eto'o, Tevez, Toure, Santa Cruz to Man City
Fabregas, Villa to Barca

Also heard rumour that Man Utd have £2mil buy back clause in Giuseppe Rossi's contract and may exercise this! Not totally convinced tho seems a bit cheap for a player who will surely be top quality in the future!
  FNEWS
Villarreal are lining up a bid of around 14 million euros for Valencia winger Vicente but face compitetion from Benifica and Fiorentina
This week Silva rejected and approach from Manchester United after stating that he wants to remain in Spain and the only team who he would leave Spain for would be Liverpool because of their Spanish contingent
Liverpool have offered Mascharano to Barca in exchange for 30 million pounds and Bojan.
Manchster United will be joing the chase for wantaway striker Lavezzi.
United are currently holdin talks with 2 wingers. .Valencia from Wigan and Alexis Sanchez from Udinese
Liverpool are lineng up a bid for Juan Mata should their Silva bid fail.
Drogba could leave chelsea as part of the Pato deal
Santa Cruz has reportedly agreed a deal to join Man city
Liverpool are close to signig a young 20 year old winger from Uraguay
Chelsea will Bid for Rafinha to replace Munich bound Bosingwa
porto face a struggle to keep players with Manchester United enquiring about Hulk and Lisandro and Liverpool launching a bid for Rodrigues.
  Robbie Fowler will join up with ex team mates John Barnes & Jason McAteer at Tranmere Rovers. Fowler will join as a player/coach when his contract with the A League finishes.
  Liverpool Football Club's co–owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks have agreed to sell the club to a Singaporean based consortium.

The deal is reported to have been brokered by Ian Ayre the club's commercial director who set up the consortium with his business contacts in the Far East.
  SPURS: To the guy who posted Harrys new formation saying it was similar to Liverpool, 4–1–2–3–1! I hadn't realised they were fielding an extra player. Great idea: A goalie and eleven outfield players.

Hope Heinze NOT coming. According to Graham Hunter he's 'slower than a glacier'. Robben's ego and asking price means he won't come. His injury history is also a problem.

So who's really in the frame? With Ronaldo and Higuan (Argie and french passports) as right side/second striker then Ribery coming in might make Higuan available. Spanish teams can have 25 first team players registered and play only 3 non EU's in the same team. Currently Real has five Argies and two Brazilians, including Kaka.

On the left/attacking midfield they have Robben, Van der Vaart and Sneider, and Marcelo (Brazilian) as wing back/left midfield.Surely one of them will go. In central midfield M. Diarra comes from Mali but his injury restricts Reals options here. Gago,(Argie) Parejo, Guti and L.Diarra all play central midfield.

Saviola and Garay CB/Sweeper are both Argentinians, but surely Saviola is the one they will let go? Especially if Villa comes in.

Would be happy if Van der Vaart was on Harrys list, Huntelaar would be a better fit than Bent in any system relying on needing a big traditional front man, but is he any better than Pav?

Heinze is certainly on the way out, just not to WHL please.
  Andy Gray is in talks with C Palace about a 500,000 move. . .

Charlton will sign MK Dons centre back but can't do any deals because of pending takeover
  To the guy who said this –
"Tottenham look set to lose out on Arjen Robben as Bayern Munich want him as part of the deal to take Ribery to Real Madrid. Instead they will turn their attentions to Syndey Govou of Lyon, he will add some experience as well as good width. Spurs will also try to get his team mate Toulalan to run the midfield. I expect a lot more to happen at WHL this summer. HR wants to turn to a 4𢴐𣛧 formation next season, ver similar to Liverpools."

Eleven outfield players – I'm sure Redknapp would love to play that formation. As for losing out on Robben he was never coming to the lane.
Not a rumour but confirmation – Bentley has signed for Villa, it will be announced soon. No surprise there though. Ashley Young not part of any deal as MON would never sell such an asset. I think history shows Harry as a fan of 4–4–2 so expect a decent left winger at the club. Unfortunately, can't see any big name signings at Spurs this summer due to no european football. Side only needs a bit of tweeking to get into top 6 or 7, but a lot of work to improve on that.
  Everton news

This is a RUMOUR site – clue's in the name you fool!!!!
Now to my rumour – Man Utd to make a bid for Aaron Lennon. HR may sell if he gets Nani on a seasons loan and SAF is keen to loan out Nani. Watch this space
  I know a VERY highly placed person at Liverpool. . trust me and i also know that Liverpool have in fact been taken over by DIC. This isn't a rumor it is a fact. I also know these are the transfers that are happening/happened:
Ins
j.martinez
d.silva
d.villa
g.johnson
m.owen
some of these are definite like johnson however some have only had bids made. But we won't lose alonso or mascherano. That is a fact.
  BURNLEY RUMOURS

AIDEN McGEADY is OWEN COYLE'S number 1 target but will not pay over 8 mil for Celtic's flair player winger! This is came from a reliable source: a friend of Burnley's chairman.
  Man United for next season. .

GK – Van Der Sar and Ben Foster to have more opportunities in the first team

Defence – Vidic won't be going anywhere, few young south american players to come in. (dodo etc)

Midfield – Valencia to come in (20m), would love to see Ashley Young an OT. possibility of De–Rossi (16m) if Hargreaves is out for a long time. Other possiblilites are Moutinho from Lisbon, also Van Der Vaart or Sjneider from Real as they need to clear players out. Nani will be staying at OT for a make or break season

Attack – again from Real, possiblity of Huntelaar, doesn't look like Tevez will stay, or that Benzema will come in.
  Back again reporting with more info from Doncaster Rovers and it is good news. I was groundskeeping at Cantley Park when the players came back for their pre pre–season training for a week with some new faces on trial, young and transfer targets and i was speaking to Mills, Stock and ROK. Mills said that he was staying and that Birmingham, Nottm Forest, Newcastle and Wigan WAS all interested but he told them he was staying. I told him i would buy him a beer for it. Stocky said that he was staying as well because his wife and children are settled in Doncaster and i quote "she doesn't like moving around, she always says i would hate to be Victoria Beckham". ROK ie Richard O'Kelly said that they are trying to get Kilkenny and Beckford from Leeds for combined fee 2.5million and also looking at . . Michael McIndoe for a return as he has been offered for 250k back to us and said if Beckford doesn't or want to come, they will persue Leroy Lita but said that they need Beckford to decide quick otherwise they might miss out on Lita. And for the players that were on trial: Matt Richards a left back, Lua–Lua who is lined up for season loan adn a couple of teenagers who might be brought into the youth.

GD
  Word Up Blue Noses. .I can assure you I don't know anyone at St Andrews who knows anything about transfers but looking through various sources I have obbtained the below information –

Signed –

Christian Benitez (£6.2 Mill (rising to 9m depending on season)

Scott Dann (£3.5 aprrox but released as undiscolsed)

Stephen Carr – (Free. .looked solid last season but how will he cope back in the Prem, only time will tell)

Potential Signings in the coming weeks –

David Edgar – Free (not a bad signing)

Giovanny Espinoza – (£600,000 – bit of experience and Benitez will have a friend)

Barry Ferguson – 1M to 2M (Good capture if Bowyer is going to Bolton)

Roger Johnson – 5 Mill (out of all the Defenders I think he will be class)

Joe Hart – 4 Mill or Loan (not much I can say except smile at this one.


Not Coming –

Traore – Played well against Reading but he has signed a 2 year contract with Monaco so I wish him all the best.

Bowyer – Dragging his feet about signing a contract so if he doesn't want to come and play for the shirt then don't come.

Jordi Gomez – Off to Wigan (Gutted)

My Favourite Rumours of Players applying there trade at St Andrews (as I said at the start this is just what I've been reading from the internet, most made me laugh linking them to the mighty Blues)

Pederson (Blackburn) – We need a left winger with Prem experience, possible a swap deal involving Seb Larson (doesnt want to sign a new contract and last season wanted to go to Newcastle.

Boyd (Rangers) – Turned us down once why would he join us after gaining qualification in the European Cup. ?

Barton – (Newcastle) Wouldnt you just love Barton at the club. ? I know I would him and Graveson in the centre. .Happy Days

Nolan – (Newcastle) – Just because everyone is leaving the mighty toon why not one more

Owen – (Newcastle) – been offered pay as you play contract, the only good thing would be shirt sales like when Beckham went to Real Madrid

Beckford – (Leeds) hmmmm. .not sure what to say

Gardner – (Aston Villa) Very good up and coming player who I wouldn't mind playing for the blues, just look at how well the Ridgewell has done. .

Pennant – (Liverpool) Do you remember when he played with the tag. ? I still love Pennant (except the last game he played friendly against Tottenham and he couldnt be bothered) If he re–signed he would play with spirit as he would have a point to prove. .

Sorry my lunch break is over but there is plenty more linked players like Joe Ledley, all of the Newcastle Squad, some of Middlesborough and a few other players nobody has ever heard of. .

Keep Right On My Brummy Friends. .Over and Out
  I hear that this will be the last year that Barclays sponsor the premier league. Barclays are dropping sponsorship and its being picked up by Emirates.
  The Accies will today announce Dean Winnard as the first signing of the new era, after news leaked that the club appear to be on the verge of a shock takeover by David Fish, owner of United biscuits.

The list of potential targets inlclude Danny Hollands, Efe Sodje, John Main, Ben Futcher and Shrewsbury hotshot Grant Holt.

Danny Hollands has been in talks with manager John Coleman as he is frustrated by the apparent lack of ambition at Bournemouth. The signing is expected to be announced later this week.

Leeds gangily forward Luciano Becchio has been mentioned and is contemplating a shock move to the Crown Ground, he is mulling over a step down that could potentially see long term benefits for his career in English football.

One final FACT, McVities (part of the United biscuits franchise) look set to be unveiled as shirt sponsors for the club, penning a 4 year deal, worth £700,000 a season for the Accies.

  Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has identified three to four primary targets to sign this summer. Glen Johnson is expected to sign this weekend for £17m. During July, Carlton Cole will express his desire to play Champions League football, and Liverpool will jump in with an £11m offer for him. Finally, the left wing is a problem that Rafa wants fixing, and he will place a bid for David Silva for £22m, but if this falls through, expect a move for Ashley Young for £18m. If Xabi Alonso leaves(Rafa will not let Mascherano leave), Steven Defour will be brought in as his replacement for £8m. If this fails, Jeremy Toulalan will sign for £14m
  I work at Old Trafford in the catering department, and get to hear a few things. Most of your stories regarding United are on the button, although I really don't think there's legs in the Valdes rumour.

Surprised you haven't mentioned possible the biggest story going round the place at the moment though – Fergie is trying to get rid of Carrick. He was disappointed with him in the big games last season, and even dropped him for a few (Chelsea and Liverpool at home for example) but his anaemic performance against Barca was the last straw for Sir Alex. He's convinced he will never be a world class midfielder, lacks the character, so is ready to trade him in. Talks have already begun in private with Milan about an incredible swap deal for Andrea Pirlo. Will be big developments over the weekend.
  I love this site, absolute madness. to the guy who says Man U are going to get Valdes from Barca – it's already reported that he's signed a new long term contract there!

Here's some real gossip – Southampton FC will confirm the takeover by the Pinnacle Group within 24 hours with Matt Le Tiss as chairman and War Kev as manager.

Tony Lynam is the key figure in the buy–out.

Lynam is acting for one hugely wealthy and so far anonymous investor who has hundreds of millions to spend on the club.

Lynam said: "I was asked originally to act for a group of four wealthy businessmen but when the time came for cheques to be put in it came down to one man. Our one client has substantial wealth – several hundred million."

  An Italian radio station is reporting that Manchester United have made contact with Inter Milan with a view to signing Zlatan Ibrahimovich. Inter are demanding 60m pounds but United are hoping a deal could be done for 35m plus a player, possibly Berbatov.
  After hearing speculation about many players leaving/joining Liverpool, its getting obvious on who will be joining and who will be leaving Anfield this summer, left start with the leaving –

OUT:
Alonso – will be given the go ahead to sign for Real Madrid when Liverpool get the amount they have been wanting for the Spanish talent (25m–30m)

Arbeloa – This will be the second player from Liverpool joining Real Madrid and with him admitting he is homesick, he will for sure agree terms with the Spanish Giants. (6m–10m)

Dossena – Having had a on/off season, he believes that he is settled in, but not all Liverpool fans believe that he has. With Juventus bidding for him, it will be most likely for Andrea Dossena to be leaving the reds this summer. (5m–8m)

Pennant – With his contract about to run out, it is likely that Pennant will be moving down to Portsmouth on a permanent deal for a free! Jermaine is likely to sign a 4 year contract which will keep at the club until summer 20120. (FREE)

Itandje – After his disgrace during the Hillsborough memorial, fans and players have been not been too happy with this lad. With a few French sides being interested he will return to first team football in Ligue 1 in France. (1m–2m)

Babel – Having not impressed last season Rafa feels he won't improve too much, so rafa has added him as part of the Villa deal which will lower the price alot! (P/Ex)

Voronin – Voronin will not be leaving Anfield this summer, after a promosing season in the Bundesliga, Liverpool will be giving the Ukraine national a second chance to prove himself at Anfield. (STAYING)



IN:
G. Johnson – Having wanted a move out from Portsmouth, he has decided that Liverpool was the right direction, as he believes Liverpool have a much bigger chance of winning the title at Anfield, and wasnt needed the first time at Chelsea, so he thinks that will he be needed the second time, so Anfield was his destination on a 4 year deal. (17.5m)

D. Villa – After saying that he has decided his future, and a few days before that Torres asking Rafa to sign Villa, they made a great decision, even though a fee of 32m with Ryan Babel is a high amount, Liverpool feel this is the second key player that Liverpool need to win the title. (32m + Babel)

J. Martinez – The second Spanish coming in for Liverpool this summer, the U21 Spaniard is supposubly the next Xavi Alonso, and with Rafa needing a replacement for Alonso, Rafa has found the right man, Martinez and Lucas will be swapping throughout the season with Gerrard dropping back at some points. (12m)


Total Spent – 61.5m
Total Income – 50m
Profit – –11.5m
Transfer Budget – 20m
Amount Leftover – 8.5m


Thanks, Smooth Talk.
  LFC FACTS!!!

Let me start by stating that I am actually a Chelsea fan, but due to Non Disclosure Agreement's in place I am unable to name names, sources etc. . . . .

LFC HAVE BEEN SOLD – Expect an announcement in July. The reason nothing is in the papers or on websites is simply because the new owners want Rafa to buy who he wants (yes the money is there) at true value and not pay over the odd's on his targets. If Clubs knew DIC's Maktoum (yes he will be the new owner) was in charge then they would quote Rafa astonishing prices.

Onto some confirmed facts;
Alonso will be leaving – most likely Madrid. However if Barca do not get their number 1 target Fabregas then they will go for him. Rafe would prefer to deal with Barca as they will offer players he is interested in. . . . Bojan (recommended by Torres), Yaya Toure, and expect a cheeky enquiry for Henry.
Mascherano will be going, although if he does leave before Alonso then expect Alonso to be shipped to Madrid.

Rafa would like to keep one of them and will push Gerrard back into a central role. Y???? Aguero is definitely on his way! A fee of £35m spread over 4 years has already been agreed! Hence demands to Chelsea of £200k a week. It was just to throw them off! Atletico accepted Chelsea's bid of £38m + add–ons but Aguero wants to go. Aguero is currently trying to convince Mascherano to stay at LFC as he is on his way to help them win the elusive title!

Glen Johnson is a done deal, no Micah Richards or anyone else for the defence apart from fringe/reserve players.
  Stoke City are preparing a £4m raid on Blackburn Rovers for their Australian International Brett Emerton, Tony Pulis is looking at Emerton for his versatility.
  Reports coming from liverpool say that they are visiting athletico madrid president, no details on who they are discussing but 2 name being banded about are aguero and forlan
  Blackburn are looking at Stoke Citys Seyi Olofinjana as a possibility that could see the player heading for Ewood Park in the same deal that takes Brett Emerton to the Britannia Stadium as part of a £4m package, £2m + Olifinjana = Brett Emerton.
  HI
I just got a phone call from my cousin who works in the liverpool store ( the one at anfield ), She dosent really follow football but she rang me to tell me that she saw 3 tanned men in suits with a young lad in a tracksuit , she said they were speaking portugese or spainish or something like that, they were took on there own tour on anfield by two men in suits and when they showed them the champions league they had said they have already seen it themselfs, I have no idea who it could be but judging by it you wd imagine that its a team that's won the champions league, so maybe real,barca, porto, ac,. . . any body know any teens or young 20's from them clubs linked with us
  Rafa is still hoping to get a work permit for Leto so don抰 expect anyone else to come in to the left wing unless it is again refused. Riera had a great first half of the season and was still pretty good in the second half, even if he tired a little. Expect him to be stronger next year and to be supported by Leto.


Babel may be sold of a suitable bid is received but I doubt that Galatasaray have the funds to tempt Rafa to sell. He will be used again as an impact player on the right and as a striker. This means no David Silva. I happen to think that Babel will continue to improve. Once it 慶licks in to place for him he could prove unstoppable and at last begin to deliver on his potential.

Attention will be turned to a back–up striker (Saviola) as N抔og will be given another season to develop and Rafa is working on options in case he loses Alonso or Masch. It would make sense for any deal which takes Masch to Barca to include Yaya Toure although Rafa may choose to put his faith in Lucas. He started to play much better at the end of the year. This would allow him to bring in someone like Martinez with Jay Spearing providing cover. Micah Richards is being looked at as cover at both CG and RB.
  There will be no movement in or out at Cardiff until Dave Jones has returned to the office after his holiday.

Moves likely then are:–

OUT
J Ledley – 4.5million and Anichebe season long loan with first refusal at end of season
Whittingham – straight swap Bradley Orr
McPhail – Motherwell £250K
Johnson – £5m+ Birmingham – but only if Birmingham improve payment schedule to include £3.5million up front

IN

Orr – Bristol City – see above
Cox Swindon (£1million staged)
E Johnson Fulham (Free)
J McAnuff – Watford (£600k)
J Koumas – Wigan (Loan)
plus young midfielder from Arsenal on season long loan
M Hudson Charlton – £250k (to be named Club Captain)

  I'm an old schoolfriend of Grat Holt's. He has turned down a contract offer from Derby, which he described as 'insulting'.
  Valencia needs to sell David Villa to gain some financial control but the only club he wanted to go to was Liverpool.

Liverpool couldn't match Man U, Barca or Chelsea's offers so Valencia took him off the market.
  Serbian midfielder Nenad Milijas will stay at Red Star Belgrade after failing to gain a work permit.
  My mate works at liverpool airport and has in the last twenty four hrs seen representatives of EVERTON flying to portugal and france when he asked 1 of the reps what they were flying out for the answer was "we are going to talk to sporting lisbon and unamed french club about potential targets". although no specific name was mentioned mountinho and mbia spring to mind also in next few days man city will sign sant cruz 18mill and offer jo+cash to everton for lescott
  Arsenal have signed vermaleen for an undisclosed fee.next would be sahko and huntelaar. .
300.1,arsenal
  Angel Rangel and Gorka Pintado are poised to hand in transfer requests should the ex Portugal coach Paolo Sousa be confirmed as manager of Swansea City, as there is no love lost between Spaniards and Portuguese. The other members of the Spanish contingent at the Liberty stadium are said to be waiting to see what transpires.

Angel hopes to join former boss Roberto Martinez at Wigan and Pintado is interesting Cadiz, recently promoted to the second tier of Spanish football.
  The real madrid deal for ronaldo is off, the winker has ruined his dream by demanding to much for his image rights, he will be a united player next year and for many to come. This however has messed fergusons plans and the only players to come in are mouthino from sporting with nani going on loan untill jan, valencia from wigan and a few youngsters douglas costa, david de gea, dodo done deal Daniele Dessena and a greek centre back papa or pop something. United will put a deal in place for karim benzema and he may come this summer depending if united recieve offers for berba if not definitely next summer after world cup. Wait and see.
  I think chelsea will by tevez for 30m and i hope they get villa
  LFC are in talks with swapping javier mascherano for samuel eto. liverpool are also interested in boro youngster adam johnston and hereford youth player adam morgan. heard it hear first!
  To ' MACCA '

With regards to your statement below it just goes to show that ' drugs don't work '

A deal between Everton and Aston Villa is being struck out for Ashley Young, the fee believed to be around 20m plus Victor Anichebe. As crazy as it sounds, this WILL happen in the next two weeks. Ashley sees a brighter future at everton, and has fallen out with MO. MO also rates Big Vic and would like to give him an oppurtunity to partner heskey/carew. Would be perfect for the toffees who are desperate for a winger.
Believe me my Uncle is a major shareholder in EFC.
More to come soon
MACCA

You desperatley need help if you think this transfer will happen.

The truth shall set you free.
  To the person who said Ashley Young was an Arsenal fan as a youngster and then gave wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashley_Young as proof. Firstly wikipedia is not the most reliable source and Secondly If you read the text properly it says that he was a Celtic fan growing up, which at the time MON was in charge of – so i think he would me more inclined to stay with Villa.
Now for some rumours:

INS
Lucas Neil – West Ham(Free)
Kyle Naughton – Shef Utd (4m)
Steven Defour – Standard Leige (9m)
Eden Hazard – Lille (7m)
Marcus Berg – FC Groningen (10m)

OUTS

Delfounso – Loan
Salifou – not sure where
Zat Knight – B'ham city or Wolves (3m)– depends wether MON signs L.Neil

  My wife is from Madrid and works for the press.
Firstly Tevez. The reason he will not sign for
Liverpool is because Mascherano is going to Barca.
David Villa will be a Liverpool player in time for pre–season. Arbeloa will go to Real Madrid, Alonso, maybe. The other striker being linked with Liverpool is Nicolas Lodeiro from Nacional in Uruguay. Juventus will not pay 7 million for Dossena. Instead they will sign Grosso from Lyon. Kun Aguerro was a possibility, but Rafa is not sure about his temperament. Same also about Micah Richards. She says another name linked to Liverpool is Guiseppe Rossi from Villareal. Rafa likes this kid a lot.
  Arsenal Ins:
Thomas Vermalaen – 11m (Almost Done)

  Will deluded Liverpool fans posting onto this site now PLEASE stop posting rubbish about Valencia's David Villa joining Torres up front at Anfield to form "the most deadly strike partnership ever"!!

As Villa has stated many MANY a time, he is not interested in leaving Spain. He is happy living in Spain. He wants to continue playing in Spain. And it will soon be announced that he has signed for Real Madrid for a fee somewhere between £30m–£40m.

Valencia are in debt, they want to get as much for Villa as they can, Real have money to burn and will pay such an amount, Liverpool can not match such a bid for one player in their current financial state.

So remember. Villa to Real Madrid. Not Liverpool.
  Doncaster defender has met with John Ryan and Sean O'Driscoll this week to demand that he be able to travel to Nottingham on Monday to discuss personal terms with Forest after Billy Davies gets back from his summer break.

Three other players will do the same: McKenna, Blackstock and Westwood, along with the four signatures already negotiated by the transfer panel: Gunter (Loan), Anderson, Adebola and McGoldrick.

Davies is hoping to tie up all these signatures early in the week and will announce them all at one press conference so that he can then begin and concentrate on nothing else but his pre–season fitness camp on Wednesday 24th at the academy site.

Don't ask how I know. .
  Ipswich fans, expect to see Paul Scholes & Ryan Giggs playing for you next season + possible season loan for Wellbeck.

Villa look like losing Young to Chelsea, but Bentley & Jenas from Spurs coming in.

Liverpool ~ Owen to come back on a reduced wage with bounses when played. Richards from Man City also to sign along with Johnson.

Curbishley will take over at West Brom.

  HIBS NEWS!!

Fletcher to Celtic £4m, Gow from Rangers and Duffy from Bristol Rovers for £500k combined!!
  West Ham have signed Jiminez, Mancini has been bought in on loan with the option to buy, as he is older Zola wants proof he can play in the premier league before splashing the little cash we have. Lucas Neil will sign the lower wage contract and if Sturridge goes Chelsea instead of us then we are looking to bring Bogan in on loan
  Right can we get this straight for all the people saying that LFC will get David Villa, David Silva and glen Johnson you've all got your heads in the sky, Liverpool have no money to spend unless they sell players we already know that, they will not get Villa because villa has quiet categorically in a number of interviews said that he wants to stay in Spain seeing Real and Barcelona have placed bids for him the two biggest clubs in Spain i really can't see him moving to the English Premiership, Valencia have already said they are not going to sell David Silva they will either hold him on until the the January transfer market or more likely next summers transfer market. And

now to Glen Johnson he will sign for Chelsea with the sale of Bosingwa that frees up the right side of defense, glen has a lot of friends at Chelsea that still keep in touch with him, Glen Johnson will be promised first team football at Chelsea whereas Rafa cannot promise that with a world cup coming up which Johnson wants to be included in he needs to play regular football he will be able to get that at Chelsea hence why he will move there

Now for speculation

arsenal

wenger still beleives in his youngsters and wants them to prove themselves so won't make any major buy apart from Vermaelen

Sell

Gallas will bring toure back into line
  Theres going to be a fair amount of change at the emirates this summer. Barcelona will want to compete with Madrid and sign big names for themselves, Fabregas will join for 30mil (. .and no yay toure isn't joining) Nasri will become the attacking flair in the middle of the park. There are 2 main targets for Wenger in the holding roll, these are brazilian Felipe Melo for 13mil from Fiorentina or the same fee for out–of favour Mamadaou Diarra, the latter seeming the more likely option. If either fails to materialise AW is keeping a close eye on Veloso transfer developments and the sort of fee Sporting will accept for the star from Bolton, expect Arsenal to swoop in late for this one. Vermaelen is a done deal and means that Senderos will not be returning. Toure won't leave but Gallas wants to play in Italy for either Milan and may even join Madrid to fill Cannavaro void. Bassong wants to move but is nothing new to what AW has therefore turning interest to Chielinni, Mertesacker or Zapata. Expect a bid to take Huntelaar to the club but that is only if Adebayor departs, his move too is also dependant on moves in both camps in Milan, either Inter or AC will move for him to replace Ibra/Pato respectively. First XI 09/10 – Almunia, Sagna, Toure, Vermaelen, Clichy,Walcott, Diarra, Nasri, Arshavin, RVP, Huntelaar.
