Forlan 2nd Rafa choice if he don't get Higuain and Scott Parker his 2nd choice to replace Masche

MAN UTD NEWS:

Sir Alex has said that he expects only 1 more signing of the right "quality" by this he means first teamer, still expect a couple of 1618yr olds to sign and be groomed into the first team in a few seasons time. He is planning on Berbatov staying but if the right offer comes in then he will be sold and may be replaced with a player between the ages of 2832 so as not to get in the way of the youngsters coming through at the moment(Welbeck, Macheda, Diouf, and now Hernandez), the players who MAY sign as a replacement for Berbatov IF he leaves are Anelka Trezeguet or Fabiano. but this is highly unlikely as United want over 20M for Berbatov. The 1 "quality" signing Sir Alex was talking about is an attacking midfielder there are 5 choices these are Marek Hamsik(1st choice), Yohan Gourcuff(2nd), Luka Modric(3rd) and Miralem Pjanic(4th) Steven Defour(5th) expect one of these to sign. the only other possibe signing is Jack Rodwell but only if someone else bids for him the same way as untied signed Rooney when Newcastle bid for him.
Leaving Old Trafford this summer will be Foster, Carrick, Tosic, Possebon, Ziegler, Grey and Cathcart. Raising between 2025M. The youngsters joining the reserves will be Haris Vuckic, Roberto Firminio and Marnick Vermijl.

So in summery
one of:
Hamsik
Gourcuff
Modric
Pjanic
Defour
will sign.

Haris Vuckic
Roberto Firminio
Marnick Vermijl

And possibly one of:
Trezeguet
Anelka
Fabiano
IF Berbatov leaves, and even then its not guarenteed he'll sign anyone of them.

 

20 May 2010 22:14:15
It looks like Villa are set to lose whole host of their star men this summer with John Carew set for a move to Fulham, James Milner looks like he will certainly be leaving but where to is the question, Manchester City have had a £20million bid rejected while their rivals Manchester United and Chelsea are thought to be preparing bids and even Arsenal may make a late attempt to sign the 24 year old if Cesc Fabregas does leave for Barcelona, Nicky Shorey is another Villa man set for a move to Craven Cottage, Nigel Reo Coker is being linked with Wolves.Steve Sidwell could also be on his way but not sure where to. Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea are all thought to be interested in Ashley Young although he is probably the most likely to stay at Villa Park.Martin O Neill is lining up a few men just in case he is forced to sell, Shaun Wright Phillips, Robbie Keane and Michael Carrick are the 3 main men he thinks can replace Young, Carew and Milner.

Billy sharp hasnt signed for anybody yet fact i was sitting with him in a pub holidaying in spain so don't be deluded by all these rumours he said he would love to sign for donny but not sure if sheff utd will take what they can offer, the mostly likely scenario will be that nobody meets sheff utds overrated value and goes back out on loan to donny, he will not decide anything for many weeks yet so please stop all the bull about billy and get some proper facts on ere, r.t.i.d

Transfer Latest Man United
(This is all FACT and sources are all given so look it up yourselves if ye don't believe me so stop all this tosh that's being put on here bout United)

This is the exactly the words that came from SAF when questioned ''Will there be any big name signings over the summer''!! In which he replied:
"There may be one signing and we'd like to get a good player to the club, of course. But it's not easy in the presentday climate.''
Check it out on the United website where it shows the video of SAF answering this question!!
So expect 1 big signing(20mil+) and maybe a lesser signing aswell(under 20 mil)!!
You can't dispute it when SAF said it himself!!

According to the Daily Mirror, United failed in a last gasp, £35million bid for Barcelonabound striker David Villa. Valencia president Manuel Llorente claims his club had a 'significant offer from England that was not Chelsea', but Villa's preference to remain in Spain clinched a move to Camp Nou.
(Man City are waiting to see what happens with Ibrahimovich and nothing else, Arsenal were never linked and are to busy with fabregas and Liverpool.enough said!!) So had to of been Man United!! Money is there people!!

Goalkeeper will not be signed this summer this is fact with SAF publicly announcing Ben Amos as his 3rd choice keeper for next season!!

PLAYERS £20million+ Rumours:
David Silva Latest Reports from Spain claim Real Madrid are lining up a bid of £20mil for the Valencia player!!(They spoil everything, but fingers crossed)
If Real do sign him it leaves the floor open to sign Di Maria but Benfica aren't letting him go to easily!

Benzema LatestAccording to tribalfootball.com SAF has been given the ok to launch another bid for the French player!! United apparently are going to test the resolve of Real to keep a player who has played so below expectations by bidding £20mil (and possibly by promising to allow Real to bid for Di Maria or Silva without competition its easier be the highest bidder when your the only bidder)

Ibrahimovich Latest United and City are both reported to be set to battle it out for the Swede's signature this report coming from Spanish Daily Newspaper Sport! Although Burlesconi(Barca President) has said his not premier league bound

Arguero Latest Daily Mail reports united could be looking to make £50million bid for the Atletico Madrid player!!

PLAYERS UNDER £20million Rumours:

Rodwell LatestThe Sun reports that United are lining up a £15million bid for Rodwell even though Moyes has issued a clear not for sale sign over his young midfielder

Sotiris NinisThe Panathinikos wonder kid tribalfootball.com says United and Roma are interested in the player valued at £8.5million!

United have money but SAF has always kept how much he has to spend to himself!

20 May 2010 20:47:06
Im not going lie and say i work at the Emirates or Anfield theese are just rumours which are speculating around and i have picked out what i think are most likely;
Arsenal
I believe Fabregas will not leave this year but may move not year, Arsenal are going to find a replacement for him already though.
I think Gourcuff will sign for £15 million Nasri and Gourcuff next year will form a bond in the centre midfield, Buffon will be involved in swap deal with Juventus, with Sagna going the other way in the deal, Chazmach on free! Van Der Wiel will be bought for 12 million from Ajax And Mexes from Roma
Wenger will play 451 next year bringing in Walcott more as a Right Winger as Nasri will be brought into Centre with Gourcuff and Song as the holding defence midfield in the 2011/2012 season as Fabrgeas will be sold.
If Fabregas was sold this year i believe Wenger will ask for 40 million and Ibrahimivic or 30 million, Henry and Ibrahimvic.
Next Year; Buffon, VDW, Mexes, Vermaelen, Clichy, Walcott Nasri, Song, Fabregas, Arshavin, RVP


Liverpool
Mascherano involved in swap deal involving L.Diarra and VDV coming to Anfield.
Jesus Navascoming for 12 million
Wilson and Shevley coming i think about 4 million was fee between them

Please will people stop making stuff up.

hope we get the new stadium contract.

 

20 May 2010 20:27:13
ATTENTION PEOPLE

The Cesc Fabregas deal is probably not going to take place now. The only options Arsenal were willing to consider were Yaya Toure or Bojan Krkic, but neither are considering coming to Arsenal, so Barcelona will have to pay straight cash, which may be hard as Arsenal will negotiate high. If Milner is worth £28M Fabregas is worth £70M, Arsenal are not buying or selling in the inflated market, unfortunately, but this is their star player, and i am pretty sure we will sell him at his inflated value (his value is around £45M). That is why we are not signing English players. Milner is no way near as good as Di Maria and yet they are worth the same. Cahill is not worth £15M, he has yet to show he can play at the highest level. Players abroad, that no one else are bidding for, are the players we should target, (except for Gourcoff, who would prefer Arsenal if he were to leave anyway, because of the Chamakh link). Top Class players like Per Mertesacker are free from bidding wars, If Juventus sold Buffon they would want to sell to Arsenal as they can then clear the debt they owe Arsenal). This is also a reason we sign youth players.

Plus about the Fabregas deal again, Barcelona are not going to pay more than £40M, they have to offer a good player that Wenger wants if they were to get a chance at signing Fabregas, as they will soon get in the debt that Manchester United are in, which is what they deserve for shopping crazily. This is also why they won't sign Rooney or Torres. THEY ARE OVER £400M IN DEBT.

 

20 May 2010 20:12:17
Don't know if this will make it onto the site, however it's not a rumour but a blatant fact. After his time at Liverpool, whenever that may be, Fernando Torres will play for 2 clubs. AC Milan and Atletico Madrid. He is as loyal as they get and would never play for another English or Spanish side. FACT!!

So please no more fanciful rumours suggesting he'll be off to Chelsea, City, Utd, Barca or most ridiculously Real Madrid.

Don't believe me? Read his autobiography 'El Nino, My Story'

 

20 May 2010 19:57:17
Jason Roberts to Leeds, Norwich are offering him more money but he's heading to Elland Road

And lets iron this out right now there is no bigger team in Yorkshire than Leeds bar NONE. I'm sick of Barnsley or Donny fans thinking that because they've had a season or two in the championship that there the bee's knee's you are nothing and have achieved nothing when you've come close then open your traps until then shut it

I am a bristol city fan, and live 5 minutes away from the bristol rovers ground. I walked passed the Memorial Stadium today and saw some activity by the players entrance. I went to see what it was about and i saw Michael McIndoe coming out and shaking hands with the officials. I said "is that Michael McIndoe?" the guy said yes and the gas look like they might sign the ex city player, as coventry look to sell him.

Avram grant resigns as portsmouth manager 100% true

 

20 May 2010 19:40:27
BULLSHT ALERT! Just a couple of facts for you all to consider.Fernando Torres will NEVER move to Barcelona if you knew anything about Spain then you'd know that catalans hate the normal spanish and there are in fact stabbings etc at the 'classico' derbies, besides they already have David Villa (sort of) and Ibrahimovic, who will be used to gain the services of Fabregas. They don't need another striker, they play 433 and the manager isn't allowed to change that, because every reserve and academy team they have are brought up to play the barca way FACT!

WHAT A LOAD OF SHT! Where is David Villa from then you moron! Tulia in the Cantabrian region (not far from Oviedo) he's NOT Catalan. Andres Iniesta is from Albacete he's NOT Catalan, I could go on but you get the picture. FC Barcelona represents the region of Catalunya, whereas Espanyol are the 'Spanish' side. The deep feeling that lies between Real and Barca goes back to the days of Franco and the Civil War. They have never liked each other and whilst Real are always willing to take one of Barca's players, Barca have in the past shunned players with Real history (Eto'o was a Real player but failed to make the grade, he cut his teeth with Mallorca). To suggest that a 'Spanish player' would be unwelcome at the Camp Nou is utter bllocks. The fans pay to watch football, not regional politics. What Guardiola is trying to do is make his team as Spanish as possible by linking Torres and Villa upfront with the 'foreigner' Messi in a free role and utilise a midfield of Xavi, Iniesta and eventually Fabregas. I think maybe you are confusing FC Barcelona with Athletic Bilbao, who only recently starting signed players who were not from the Basque region of Spain. If not then you're plainly and simply as we say in Spain 'los coo' (look it up on Babelfish or something!)

The summer budget had been assigned to land Fernando Torres and David Villa with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thierry Henry being moved on. Fabregas was not thought to be in reach. It is a FACT that Barcelona cannot afford to sign all 3 this summer! Torres would be a much more useful acquisition than Fabregas right now. In all honesty, Barca do not need Fabregas and would be quite happy if he joined them in another 2 years when Xavi may have lost a yard or two of pace. Villa and Torres have a great partnership in the National side so for Guardiola to invest such large sums of money in the pair will at least guarantee a decent return (unlike the gambles on Ibrahimovic and Henry!). Ibrahimovic is likely to return to Inter or sign for Bayern (if they win the European cup it will largely fund the move).
Also rumours of Higuain and Diarra in exchange for Mascherano gotta love the scousers, biggest bunch of blaggers known to man! Higuain is worth approx £25m, Diarra around £10m. Mascherano is worth no more than £20m and besides, its Gerrard Real want not Mascherano!

 

20 May 2010 19:42:26

Anyone thinking Lukaku is going anywhere other than Chelsea is deluded. The boy is a Chelsea fan and idolises Didier. Chelsea will look at signing him this season and possibly loaning him back as his father would like him to stay in Belgium for a couple of years.

Other in's:

Aguero obvious, but pretty much done deal.

Bonnuci youngster, very highly rated, replacement for Carvalho and along with Bruma will form the backbone of the Chelsea defence in a few years.

Van der Vaart/Ozil both available cheaply, Ozil is in last year of contract. Should be tied up soon as his value will skyrocket soon because he will shine at this World Cup, mark my words.

Those are the 3 that Bruce Buck mentioned today, slight possibility of more if players like Bosingwa/A.Cole leave. But Ash has seen he's going to win things at Chelsea for sure.

 

20 May 2010 19:55:21
Liverpool rumours:

Potential signings
Navas Homesickness problem now cured, hence in the spanish squad for this summer.
Mata Valencia's financial situation dictates more sales.
Higuain Rumoured fall out with Ronaldo, could be part of another deal (ie someone leaving).
Kjaer Boyhood fan.
Ireland Not in City's plans, as Milner bid proves.
Cole Out of contract.
Kolarov Help Jovanovic settle and visversa.

Obviously not all of these would happen but most will and player sales will probably fund most of them.

Everybody saying Billy Sharp is at Leeds, please get a life and stop posting rubbish. Billy Sharp is on holiday until June 27th, I work at DRFC and know this for sure. He will decide his future after he comes back and will return to Sheff Utd training. Leeds and DRFC are interested and ROVERS HAVEN'T BID FOR HIM YET!

John Ryan has also given SOD £700,000 to spend on players this summer and are only willing to spend £500,000 on Billy Sharp with possible future incentives next summer depending on goals scored! And if Sharpy doesn't return, SOD will go after Brett Pitman who is a sure to come to Rovers (Best mates with James Hayter and Brian Stock, links with James O'Connor and Sean O'Driscoll. FACT! The other £200,000 will be used on either Tom Kennedy (Rochdale) if DRFC don't sign Hunt from Notts County who is out of contract.

Below are the targets I know are on SOD's shortlist and their prices:

Billy Sharp Sheff Utd £500,000
Jay Emmanuel Thomas Arsenal Loan (Season)
Tom Kennedy Rochdale £125,000
Brett Pitman Bournemouth £250,000

If Adegivememoremoney was sold for 25Million then Fabregas must be worth 50 million as he is twice the player. He will not go as he owes so much to Wenger for making him the player he is.
Arsenal to sign at least 3 quality experienced players to push for the title in Wengers last season as manager before being made managing director of Arsenal FC.

A question for City fans and rumour starters, why are you STILL writing 'Man City INs Torres' etc. Do you not realise that he WON'T go to City? Is it not really obvious that IF he leaves it will be to Spain or Italy? Is it not really obvious that City DON'T have anything to offer Torres other than money?

Anyway, onto rumours, i have heard that Beckford may be on his way to West Ham now. I have also heard that Spurs may try and sign Di Maria, if Bentley leaves

Billy sharp In return
Tommy Spurr Sheff Wed In
European Striker No info
Adam Le Fondre Rotherham In Mark Robbins link

billy sharp as confirmed he is going to give the blades another shot, also sufc have recently rejected an offer from doncaster in the region of 1.5 million pound, the offer was referred to a ludicrous and outrageous, with an hint that the ammount of money to acquire the services of Mr sharp sits in the region of 2.5 million. Tommy spurr as been valuated in the region of 3 million pound. Adam Le Fondre as been valuated around 2 million pound, pricing him off the market so that clubs steer clear of bidding for him, also Ronnie Morre as stated ALF will see out his contract with the club. Bogdanovic is out of contract so any part exchange is stupid as he IS NO LONGER A BANSLEY PLAYER.

Sergio Aguero's words
"Chelsea are a great club. They have become one of the most feared in Europe over recent years. London would be a really amazing city to live in as well myself and my wife could be really happy there.

"Carlos Tevez is doing really well at Manchester City but for me it is about joining a club who are ready to challenge for honours. City are not ready yet."

Kun to Chelsea

I'm not sure why people are saying Zlatan Ibrahimović is joining them he is currently earning 750k Euro's a month only Man City will match or better it.

The player you have all forgotten Robinho he will be moving back to brazil for £10mil

Manchester United to bring in one player Miguel Veloso who will give Hargreaves a tough time getting back into the first team

Liverpool will only sell Steve and Torres if the Yanks have a sale put forward for the club. Shame for Liverpool as the new owners will have a lot of rebuilding to do.

Celtic Graham Carey. I posted yesterday of huge Interest from 4 championship clubs Ipswich and blackpool, 2 others and Wolves and Wigan in premiership. Expect some news on this in the next few days as Celtic resigned to loosing the player.
Carey shares the same agent as Roy Keane. Celtic offered contract extension to left footed winger who spent season on loan with St mirren, scoring free kicks against Rangers and Hearts. He's an under 21 Irish International. Lennon mad keen to keep him.

what a load of ste! When has SAF stated that they will have to sell Rooney ? Players do have a choice which team they play for.
Some people seem to think the club can decide.
FABREGAS is leaving 100% Get over it hes going

To the guys posting:

"20 May 2010 03:24:12
Fabregas Saga:"

Completely agree. For too long have Barca been able to get away with blue murder in transfer markets, tapping players up etc; why have have they never been punished by fifa? because Fifa is super corrupt. Just because you play football well does not mean you have the god given right to any player you like the look of.

Wenger and Arsenal fans (I for one) endured summers of this tripe with Henry. Was it the Champions league final 06 when a "fan" ran on the pitch and draped a barca shirt over henry's shoulder? This time around I can really see Wenger telling Laporta etc to stick it where the sun don't shine. Fabregas is under contract until summer 2014, his wages are going to increase, and so is value. Cesc, if Barca don't think your worth at least 40 million, they don't deserve you. They might argue he is the product of their youth system. But simply put, they weren't willing to take a risk on him then, and he wouldn't be the player he is now if he hadn't gone to Arsenal. To be honest, most of the stuff being printed on our papers is just translated lies spain. Is anyone even sure he made to London on Tuesday for this meeting with Wenger; I thought the ash cloud had grounded flights?

Another point; where does Fabregas play for Barca? If he's going to push iniesta or Xavi out of the team, he must be worth as much as them, say 50million a pop, not million. At Arsenal Cesc is loved by fans, Captain and indefinitely the first name on the teamsheet. Wenger will fork out the doe to build a team around him to keep him rather than sell him. At Barca, yeah sure he'd be loved by the fans, but he'd the first name on the bench.

Onto the rumours:

A goalie at Arsenal: Hart seems to be a nonstarter anymore, City won't let him go. Buffon seems to have gone cold, and Lloris pops back up again. A smokescreen for Buffon, maybe?

Defenders: Kjaer's gone cold, Jagielka is picking up pace it would seem. anyone got news about Mertesacker.

Midfield: If Fabregas stays, expect an enforcer and artist to be bought by Wenger. Diaby to possibly leave, because he's perfectly consistent at being inconsistent. Would like to see Flam back to boss it, but doubt it. Lorik Cana possibly. Artist? Dreams of Gourcuff coming over to join up Chamakh to really get on Bordeaux's tits.

Winger: Arsenal need an outandout winger. Mesut Ozil has been spectulated about on the web. and wenger was a massive fan of his after Germany's last Euro U21 victory. Doubt Hazard joining this year.

But at the end of the day, "In Wenger we trust, but can never predict"

Donomuch

LFC NEWS
The arrival of youngsters Sterling & Shelvey will be followed by the arrival of Wilson from Rangers and Hennesey from Wolves. These deals all from transfer kitty avaliable prior to this summer.
Barcelona won't match Wenger's valuation of Fabregas so they will turn their attentions back to Mascherano for £30m. Reira (he's not bright is he?) will join Stuttgart for £5m. Also leaving Cavalieri / Degen / San Jose (done today) / El Zhar / Plessis & N'gog (thank Christ) giving Rafa £44m to spend.
£3m + Benayoun (shame) will go to WHL for Bentley / £3m + Babel (not a shame) to Galatasary for Turan. Banega & Ziegler will cost £8.5m each. The final piece in Benitez's plans is Mezut Ozil who will arrive for around £1518m.
Yanks may not be gone by the start of next season but shouldn't be long after that (let's hope for some more volcanic ash and that they get stuck at JL airport along with LFC fans ready for a european away game!).
The new owners (and at this exact moment in time there is noone definate) will have to clear the debts and fund the new stadium in time for the start of the 20122013 season so no money will be avaliable for any more transfers until the the following season will Rafa will look to replace Carragher and Gerrard.

STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT
ARSENAL WILL NOT SWAP CESC FOR ANY PLAYER AT BARCA IT WILL JUST NOT HAPPEN ITS A CASH ONLY DEAL IF IT HAPPENS, AND I MEAN CASH THATS PAY UPFRONT
anyway ive heard arsenal are interested in Shawcross, that will be interesting at the first training session if it happens

 

20 May 2010 18:39:19
Arsenal will sign some quality players, Wenger knows if he doesn't Fabregas will leave soon. Fabregas would love to play with Gourcoff and I suspect Wenger will sign him because he also likes Gourcoff and doesn't want to risk losing him to Man Utd.

Joe Hart is awesome but he is 23, which will get in the way of Sczenscy. Buffon or Frey look likely as they are top class, in their 30s and shouldn't be too expensive. Juventus still owe Arsenal around £6M for the Patrick Vieira deal. So we may only have to pay £9M + Clearing of Debt. Frey could be avaliable for £7M.

At CB, Cahill is overpriced, and Hangeland may not be good enough. Simon Kjaer is a very similar player to Hangeland and is about 7 years younger, so he can improve more than Hangeland. Mamadou Sakho is a bit too inexperienced. Giorgio Chiellini would be perfect but may be too expensive and we could face competition from United if they sell Vidic. So I think that Per Mertesacker could come in for around £12M £15M. He should easily be able to cope with the physical presence of the PL as he is 6'6. Mamadou Sakho could be bought if Traore wants to go to PSG (Which is his dream) for around £4M + Traore.

The only other signing is Marouane Chamakh for Free. We have plenty of Attackers. The only other possible signing is if Sagna leaves Arsenal, we will sign Gregory Van Der Wiel for £8M. If Clichy leaves, Gibbs will be promoted.

 

20 May 2010 18:31:33
To whoever just said arteta and jagielka for 28m, neither player wants to leave everton and everton don't wana seel either, the 2 combined would go for a lot more than that.

everton to bring in
Beckford(free)
Petrov(free)
Ben Arfa/Zamora(if not then keane) (8 mill ish each) most likely one or the other but maybe both
Vertonghen (not sure)

Yakubu and Yobo will probably leave most likely West Ham for yak and newcastle maybe Marseille for Yobo

 

20 May 2010 18:32:38
How do you know Billy Sharpe is at Leeds now? Have you seen him?

Liverpool are now linked with Reto Ziegler the former spurs and Wigan flopplayer. The Sampdoria defender has been earmarked to fill Rafa Benitez's problem leftback position, according to reports in Italy.

 

20 May 2010 18:05:26
A question to the arsenal fans, if fabregas isn't going because barca won't fork out the 70 mil+ because they don't have that bigger budget , how would they sign torres for at least 70 million. Personally I think that they will get fabregas as a player who is forced to stay at a club won't play at his peak , so his value will drop.
Real Madrid to sign:
David luiz 20 million
javier mascherano :(10 million+ higuain ( not a bad deal )
Ashley cole 16 million
adebayor loan

arsenal to sign
gourcuff roughly 21 million
bojan loan
rafa marquez exchange
mikel arteta + jagielka 28 million
van der wiel 12 million

Outs :
sagna 13 million inter
fabregas 35 mil + marquez permenant and bojan on loan
gallas free, nasri said 6 people don't talk to him

spurs :
don't know much but I expect Diego forlan 18 million

man city
milner possibly 28 million
di maria 25 million , not the 38 eeryomr is talking about
cardozo 20 million/ hulk 24 million
benzema Loan exchange for adebayor
maybe a cheeky bid for kaka

Liverpool
mata
kolarov
cahill
banega
higuain
another youn Spanish winger or the young argentinian winger but I can't put my finger on the names sorry
jovanovic

Outs
mascherano
riera
babel
ep zhar
degen
aurelio

20 May 2010 17:59:13
Walsall are intrested in free agent, Adebayo Akinfenwa. After he has said no to Northampton, Walsall captain Mark Hughes, a former Northampton player, has spoke to Akinfenwa and has tempted him to become a Walsall player.

Walsall will contact the player within the next week, hoping that they and Hughes can tempt him to sign the contract. This is thought to be a 2year contract, with a 515% increase on his offer from Northampton.

Hutchings is also intrested in Lee Hendrie. In febuary, Walsall were intrested in him, but now hes a free agent, he is willing to cut his wages by 50% to sign for Chris Hutchings' side. He will join in with training when they return, then Hutchings will offer in a oneyear contract.

One will be confirmed before the transfer window and the other within 2 weeks of it reopening.

 

20 May 2010 17:56:42
1stly, most people saying here tat man utd doesn't have money tats all crap.in fact its quite the contrary united did bid for Villa for around 45 million euros but it was rejected by valencia as villa wanted to stay in spain nd join Barca.which I thnk are trying to make a Spanish International team plus messi nd alves.now united's targets for da summer are
David Silva nd Angel Di maria (1 of them will go to Real Madrid nd da other to United) 95% sure


erm actually if you knew anything about this then you would know that just 2 days ago SAF said himself there will be most probably absolutely no more signings maybe just 1 small player, but no big players. so much for 45 million euros being available, so stop making up rumours that you wish will happen.

anyway, on to a real rumour for arsenal.
chamakh deal is done and will be announced when his contract with bordeaux expires in june. also, a goalkeeper and a defender will definately sign, wenger has narrowed his choices down to 3 in each position. 1 big player will also be signed to try and persuade fabregas to stay. im not going to pretend i know who because i don't but i know it will be an attacking player, most probably somebody like silva or maybe ronaldinho.

 

20 May 2010 17:57:01
Newcastle to sign 18 year old Raffaele Maiorano from torino.

 

20 May 2010 17:58:21
Fabregas is not going to Barcelona until next year.

Arsenal will sign Simon Kjaer.
They will not sign a GK.

They have no interest in Lukaku. They have their own Lukaku in Benik Afobe.

 

20 May 2010 17:36:57
Everton rumours

Yobo could be off to Newcastle and the funds used for that will be spent on Jan Vertoghen of Ajax.

Yakubu will be sold and to replace him will be either Mbokani, Robbie Keane or Bobby Zamora.

Also, for the future, Mlapa and Aleksandar Ignjovski will be bought from 1860 Munich.

A friend was talking to some Milan fans holidaying in London a rumour picking up pace is that the San Siro club are looking to offload Ronaldinho after another disappointing season. Manu are linked with a move in a deal involving Berbatov going to Milan.

 

20 May 2010 17:32:15
To the "wizards sleeve' the whole of london knows about cole to tottenham the deal is as obvious as day and night, but swp!! please get a grip on this one mate i know for a fact harry prefers bents to swp

 

20 May 2010 17:25:23
I've just read that Ronaldinho is going to valencia !

 

20 May 2010 17:27:32
Fabregas isn't goin anywhere. It hasnt been confirmed yet and Barca havent even put in a bid yet. barca buying Fabregas for £30 million is just a rouma.And because of all this Arsene doesn't want to loose Fabregas for a long time so his going out and buying. He also told Fabregas he was building the team around him and Gourcuff is one of the pl;ayers he wants in his team. he also wants Gourcuff in this summer because next summer Gourcuff would probably be bought by another big team and would be at the start of a contract.

Gourcuff,
Mertesacker,
Mandanda/Lloris,
Chamakh,
Van der weil, will be joining and..

Almunia,
Gallas,
Senderous,
Sagna, will all be leaving.

 

20 May 2010 17:29:58
Just a couple of facts for you all to consider.
Fernando Torres will NEVER move to Barcelona if you knew anything about Spain then you'd know that catalans hate the normal spanish and there are in fact stabbings etc at the 'classico' derbies, besides they already have David Villa (sort of) and Ibrahimovic, who will be used to gain the services of Fabregas. They don't need another striker, they play 433 and the manager isn't allowed to change that, because every reserve and academy team they have are brought up to play the barca way FACT!

Barnsley Rumours
GK's As they were, possibility of young keeper joining

Defence Foster out, Shackell captain, stoke lads in, Elliot Ward in

Midfield Devaney to be sold or loaned, Colace to sign as vice captain, Teixeira in based on wages, Nicky Law in, Warren Feeney in

Forwards Hume and Gray out Le Fondre, Sharp and Ben Sahar in {editor's note – where do you get this from about Torres not joining Barca? The classico is between Real Madrid and Barcelona, Torres is an Atletico Madrid fan. Atletico fans hate Real Madrid, not Barcelona. Next you will be saying Rooney won't join Man Utd because Liverpool fans hate Man Utd!}

 

20 May 2010 17:20:27

For EVERTON fans :
As asking price for fabregas is to high it is reported that arteta will join "barca".
Possible new signings are vertonghen from ajax, beckford from leeds and a goalkeeper (no names mentioned)

 

20 May 2010 17:23:59
Lfc true rumours/fact

expect to see real madrid make a bid for mascherano after the world cup considerin his performance in the WC.
Also expect barcelona to make a bid for torres of 70mill if they decide to sell ibra as he has lost his first team place and has not been worth the cash they paid or the 10mill a year he earns a season. so are looking to offload him.


if masch is to leave to real expect it to be a player exchange plus cash possibly higuain is what im hearing plus 10 mill.


other players are
kolarov and jovanovic whihc are basically done deals to what i hear.
ever banega 8.5mill
juan mata also a major bid will be made.
Ajax centreback Jan Vertonghen will also be bid for if this falls through
kjaer or peraja will be inquired about.
David bentley also being looked at as there is a possibility kuyt may be offloaded.

 

20 May 2010 17:16:14
Tottenham:
Joe Cole
Carrick
Harry wants a world class centre forward but has faith in the strikers he already so he will only spend on if he thinks he can get value

please, please get it into your thick heads NO carrick to white hart lane! he is very much disliked as is keane, the thing is modric will remain at tottenham AND as the player has said which seems to fall on deluded manc fans!! his next club will be in spain!!!!

 

20 May 2010 17:12:51
To anybody on here talking about LFC transfers, please don't say that the owners are going to invest any money whatsoever, Gillet and Hicks are leaches and just sap money out of the club.

One rumour that's doing the rounds is Mascherano for Higuain and VDV or 510 million.

Another is Barca will offer Ibrahimovic + cash for Torres, but this is most likely not true and is a rip off

To the person that said: "Ibrahmavic is staying in a high class NORTH LONDON Hotel with Henry and Bojan".

As far as I'm aware, North London doesn't have ANY "High class" hotels. The closest high class hotel to N.London would be "The Grove" (where the England team usually stay) but that's in Rickmansworth, Herts

actually north london has a few high class hotels

even harder for liverpool to sign is joe cole who seems destined to renew his friendship with harry redknapp with both player and manager expressing how much they enjoyed working togeather, also cole mentioned at the mitchell fight sat, that he was joining harry again most probably before the world cup if not then after but will deff be joining

FABREGAS LATEST.

Barca still hope to be able to present Fabregas to the media tomorrow along with David Villa, they believe a dea; is VERY CLOSE. 35m euros (£30.4m) and Marc Muniesa Martinez (18 yrs can play all across back four, regular for Spain U19) and also ALEX HLEB who is set for a stunning return to the Emirates, expect news within 24 hrs

Yeah, sorry, but that's a complete nonstarter from the Arsenal side. The deal is not close, let alone VERY CLOSE. Arsenal have already said they're not interested in ANY player swaps from Barca. The price to start negotiations is £80m, flat fee. Barca don't have the cash. So, sorry to burst your bubble but there won't be any presentation of Cesc Fabregas wearing a Barca shirt within the next 24 hrs.

 

20 May 2010 16:36:08

The Blues have failed in a bid to sign Fernando Torres so will now move to sign Aguro of Atletico Madrid

 

20 May 2010 16:36:32
Rafa is looking to Joe Cole to his squad, hence Stevei G's recent comments about the player. Although he is on a free his contract will be very costly so will put a large dent in any transfer budget. A left back is the only other priority currently although another striker, on top of Jovanovic, will be sought if funds are made available. Rafa knows which players he is willing to sell but don't expect them to be sold unless he is told he can reinvest the proceeds. With Wilson, Cole lus a left back coming in, and Aurelio definitely leaving, expect Kyriakos to make way. The others who may be leaving are Degen, ElZhar, Babel, Yossi and possibly Masch, although this is only if the player requests a move.

Burnley Football Club are going to be the busy spenders in the championship this summer with 4 out and 6 or 7 in. Steven Jordan, Steven Caldwell have been released whilst Chris Eagles is being sold to Bolton and Steven Fletcher to rather Bolton, Birmingham or Wolves but will demand £7m. Wolves is most likely because Laws wants to use EbanksBlake as bait for the striker. Also in will be Maik Taylor, Robert Koren, Gavin McCann, and Jack Cork. Bury youth player Billy Crawshaw will also be bought for £200k. You heard it here first. UTC

Will people please stop linking Liverpool with Mata, Turan, Navas, Silva, van der Vaart, Higuain etc. Rafel Benitez is staying 100% whether you like it or not and this year he has vowed to buy British and/or homegrown talents to create a bit more passion in the dressing room and on the field, players Rafa is actually trying too bring to Anfield on are as follows Joe Cole{free}, Gary Cahill{£12million}, Wayne Hennessey{£2.75million}, Stephen Ireland{£8.5million} and Steven Fletcher{£5million}, Benitez has already wrapped up deals for two British youngsters Danny Wilson{£2million} and Jonjo Shelvey{£1.7million}. Rafael Benitez is still looking abroad but only for two players and both are left sided Serbian's, Lazio's left back Aleksandar Kolarov{£12million} and Standard Liege left winger Milan Jovanovic{free}.Yossi Benayoun is unfortunatley on his way to Stamford Bridge in a deal worth around £9million, others leaving will be Fabio Aurelio, Sotiris Krygiakos, Phillipe Degen, Albert Riera, Damien Plessis, Nabil El Zhar, Krisztian Nemeth, Mikel San Jose and Diego Cavalieri.I expect Rafa to stick to his formation which is pretty much a 451 however the starting line up will look a lot better if he get's the player's he is looking for my guess is the starting XI will be ReinaJohnsonCahillAggerKolarovKuytGerrardMascheranoIrelandJ.ColeTorres with plenty in reserve unlike last year HennesseyBabelAquilaniRodriguezCarragherLucasInsuaFletcherJovanovicSkrtelN'gogShelveyWilsonSpearingDarbyHansenPachecoAyalaAmooDalle Valle.While the squad still won't be as deep as some of our rivals it will still look vastly improved but we will again be praying Gerrard and mainly Torres do not get injured.Maybe this terrible season was in a weird way good for the club in the long run with the American's leaving and Rafa looking closer to home for talent and passion, hopefully it was just a blip because I still go by the slogan in Rafa we trust.

How about some real rumours

James Milner won't be going anywhere!! He knows what Martin O'Neil has done for him, Also Milner is represented by the PFA and therefore does'nt have an agent pressurising (sp) for themove so he can make a quick buck out of it
this is the squad posted on here

cb carragher, agger, cahill, kjaer, wilson, jones

lw mata, cole, turan, fleck
st torres, higuian, rossi, ngog, wickham

you forget that players under 21 can be included in squad but do not need to be registered and as there is a lot of young players in that squad i think that you should think before you post or better yet don't post eny thing at all

in other news takeover nearly complete liverpool will rise from the ashes of this season like a pheonix

Arsenal:
Arteta
Hangelaand
Chamach (done deal)

Chelsea:
Torres (unlikely)
Aguero (if Torres bid fails)
Di Maria
Alves

Liverpool:
Wilson
Joe Cole
Kjaer
Liverpools transfer activity will be minimal until the ownership issues are resolved and Torres has made a decision on his future. I have it from a reliable source he will not make a call on this until after the world cup.

Man City:
Milner
Ibrahimovic
Gourcouff/Hamsik


Man Utd
Milner/Modric
Rodwell/Defour
SAF has stated he has the right balance to the squad at present. That is because it is uncertain if Carrick & Berbatov will still be there next season. If they go United may go for 2/3 players instead of the 1 stated by SAF. United fans should not hold their breath on a new striker as they will not spend stupid money on a Benzema or Aguero. Macheda WILL be
given more opportunities next season. Dont be surprised If United make do with Smalling & Hernandez.

Tottenham:
Joe Cole
Carrick
Harry wants a world class centre forward but has faith in the strikers he already so he will only spend on if he thinks he can get value.

Henry is going to USA and Bojan won't be moving unless its a loan deal

"To the guy who wrote Rangers have a 3 year plan with bank and you will be handed 5 million for transfers. You are an absolute dreamer. Rumours are supposed to have some sort of background, not whatever fantasy you happen to come up with about your club.
As for your rangers, Walter smith will be leaving this summer with ally mcoist stepping up. You have to sell at least 5 1st team players to keep banks off your back. Also your tax bill is liable to rangers and not Murray Holdings. Half Rangers players salaries paid through UK banks and other through offshore accounts to avoid the tax man. It sadly ( Not for me ) Has caught up with you. My source is a relative of Walter himself and he spoke to uncle Walter little over a week ago. But you can believe in whatever fantasy comes next. Who knows. Mabe Rangers are buying Fabregas hahahahaha"

Get a grip Johnston has already said that Smith will be given 5 Million to sign and renue players contracts, the reason Smith was going to the bank himself was to ask for more funds !!. As for selling players, there is no need, revenue recieved from the champions league (which the manky mob won't be in), season ticket sales & 3 new shirts this season and the money from new shirt sponners Tenants, will keep the bank happy.

I will personally guarantee (anyone wana take bets ED can hold the money) Smith & Co. will be at them helm for another season and then Smith will pass the reigns over to McCoist and McDowell.

Rangers have been wresteling with the team from the piggery, with one hand tied behind our backs and we still manage to slap yer fat arse's get it right up ye !!

3 in a row here we fcking go !!

Smith's blue and white army !!!!

Ok, time to clear a few things up regarding LFC.

The Manager:

Rafa will be staying. Whether or not you like that doesn't really matter, the current owners would never bring in a new man while they are trying to sell the club, as any potencial owners may want to bring in their own man. Not to mention Rafa has pretty much said he isn't interested in leaving and feels he still has a job to do. Jose Mourinho will not be joining liverpool in the near future. He has said on a few occassions that he will either stay at Inter or join Madrid, so can we put this stupid rumour to bed. Same for Martin O'Neil, who has said he won't be leaving Villa, Roy Hodgson has also said he won't be leaving Fulham. So Rafa is Staying.

The Owners:

Who knows. Personally, I can't see new Owners being found until later this year. And when we do, expect them to turn the club around year on year. Instead of spending 1.2 billion on turning the club around in year 1, expect them to first buy the club, then pay off 30% of the Debt on the club, then begin the process of building the stadium for roughly 320million. While there will still be debt on the club it will be reduced year on year. Not perfect, but a whole lot better than what we have now.

The Players:

While noone can accuratly perdict what is going to happen with regards to the Star players, we can make some educated guesses.

Gerrard and Torres look likely to stay. Likely, anyway. Gerrard and Torres both believe that Liverpool can give them what they want BUT under the condition that LFC will be signing Top Players, Although Mascherano may leave no matter what happens. Torres may end up partnering Villa at Barce while Gerrard would go where ever Jose Mourinho goes. Masch would go to a top Italian or Spanish Club, with Barce lining up a move should the Fabregas Deal Fall through.

Leaving the Club for sure:

Cav, Degen, Aurellio and Reira, for around 12 million.

Possibly Leaving:

Yossi, Babel, Aqua, Nando, Gerrard, Masch and Skrtel.

Rafa's Targets:

LB: Kolarov, Taiwo, Cissokho,
ST: C. Cole, Jovanovic, Rossi, Boselli, Pazzini, Lavazzi
L/RW: Turan, J.Cole, Navas, Sanchez, Mata
CM: Melo
CB: Wilson

Hope this has been imformative, Bonnar Boy.

Rafa has been told that the two front runners to buy the club are not interested in keeping him on, citing recent struggles with the board, player unrest, and the fact that he cares more about his own bleating to the pressand blaming everyone else other than admit he has failed big time.

They want jose, but given the fact that he is preoccupied at the momment will wait until next week to show their "business plan" along with their terms and conditions, which along with their ambition will make it almost impossible for him to decline.

One of the investers in looking at a sizable warchest to entice him..expect the news to break within a week

Talking to a police friend of mine, who work in Blackpool., he told me that Blackpool if promoted to the prem will not be allowed to play at Bloomfield Rd, as a safety cert will not be given on Police advice. As the ground is not safe nor finished.

To the guy who wrote Rangers nhave a 3 year plan with bank and you will be handed 5 million for transfers.. You are an absolute dreamer. Rumours are supposed to have some sort of background, not whatever fantasy you happen to come up with about your club.
As for your rangers, Walter smith will be leaving this summer with ally mcoist stepping up. You have to sell at least 5 1st team players to keep banks off your back. Also your tax bill is liable to rangers and not Murray Holdings. Half Rangers players salaries paid through UK banks and other through offshore accounts to avoid the tax man. It sadly ( Not for me ) Has caught up with you. My source is a rerlative of Walter himself and he spoke to uncle Walter little over a week ago. But you can believe in whatever fantasy comes next. Who knows.. Mabe Rangers are buying Fabregas hahahahaha

Sunderlands Steve Bruce has said he has an open cheque book, but he won't be spending and brining in players like last season. Initially they only need a couple of players

Right Back after a successful loan Alan Hutton could be making a 5mil move back to sol. Ahmed AlMuhammadi is also a 4 mil target from ENPPI at just 22 he has shown a lot of promise and able to play any where on the right.

Left Back is a problem having Kieron Richardson there and George McCartney injured (most of the time) 8mil bids for either Maynor Figueroa (Wigan) or Tay Taiwo (Marseille) both are similar players and would give a better attacking option.

Defence Nedum Onuoha has been rumoured to move to sol for 4 mil from Man city the bid will only going in if Anton Ferdinand is sold to West Ham; John Mensah will either be loaned back or bought for a undisclosed fee

Right Wing Riveros is already a done deal and with him and Steed on the wings bent will have quality balls in

Striker an 8 mil bid for Robbie Keane is on the cards Darren Bent would love to have him as a strike partner if this doesn't happen a move for a young prolific south american will be moving over

Total spend through the summer will be no more then 30 mil and should see them in the top half of the table

 

20 May 2010 12:58:23
Torres is not going to go to Barca. Laporta doesn't particularly want him. It's the new chap coming in that want's him.
Laporta wants to sign Cesc. But not for the ridiculous amounts that is being banded about like £80, £60 or even £40 mil.
£30/32 mil is where they see the player valued.
(I personally don't even think that, and would make the Barca first team anyway, until Xavi retires anyway, even then they are different players)
I'm pretty sure Barca won't sign Fab or Nando this year.
Silva will obviously sign for dirty Real madrid.

And for those of you who are adamant fergie will only sign 1 more player ''because he said'', he bought Diouf the day after saying no more business will be done.
What clubs say and do are different things.

 

20 May 2010 12:57:40

Some one on here posted a rumour about a week ago that Liverpool were interested in Birmingham City left back Roger Johnson.

Todays Daily Mail reports that Birmingham are preparing a bid for Paul Konchesky of Fulham. Why would they do this when they already have a decent left back in Roger Johnson?

I'm trying to put 2 and 2 together and find out whats happening at LFC.

An uncapped 27 year old english player isn't a typical Rafa purchase but just the sort of player we'd have bought a few years back. Not a big name but a good solid pro.

So who's pulling the purse strings at Anfield?




IDIOT. Roger Johnson is a CentreHalf!
Big Eck is looking for a left back because he wants ridgewell to be a covering centre half/left back, especially is Murphy Leaves for scotland.. so it would make sense blues buying Konchesky.. not the first time they have tried..

Aguero going to Manchester United

The tears of Sergio Aguero .. Goodbye to Atletico Madrid?

Barcelona, (Sports Network) Sergio Aguero left the Camp Nou today with tears after losing the final of the Copa del Rey, fueling rumors that next season puts him out of Atletico.

Atletico Madrid fell 20 to Sevilla and lost the opportunity of a big fire season that they won the League Europe.

Aguero was the last player to leave Atletico Madrid in the field. He stood alone, while Sevilla's players celebrated the title on the field. Despus, el argentino se despidi de todos los hinchas rojiblancos con lgrimas en los ojos. Then, the Argentine took leave of all Atletico supporters with tears in his eyes.

After the meeting, the "Cadena SER" said the Atletico Madrid millionaire received an offer from Manchester United, he would be willing to pay the buyout clause, which is 60 million euros ($ 74.4 million).

The whole red and white through a difficult economic situation and would be willing to consider the proposal of Manchester United. "Atletico Madrid left the decision to the player, " added the radio station.

Agero fulfilled 22 years on 2 June and recently left a door open at the exit of team he played for since 2006, when it launched the European adventure.

"I always said that in June the club will try to do my best to see if the entity needs money or build economically otherwise. If it's for the good of the club ..", said a few days ago.

Aguero did not say too much after the meeting, he offered an impromptu press conference at the insistence of journalists.

"I felt sadness, a negative thought about not getting the win. No one said goodbye. I was sorry for the party that lost. I thought we lost, we could not take the Cup, not in anything else, " he said.

Agero again gave the fans of Atletico Madrid. "I felt excitement for the people, still encouraging dsespus to end the game. They behaved very well. This is the first time I went, we lost and we continue to encourage, " he added.

QUOTE
Defeat in the Copa del Rey final was not the only blow for Atletico. The club Atletico could face up shortly by one of its stars: the 'Kun' Agero.

He informed the Cadena SER midnight, Manchester United want to sign Argentine forward at all costs, and is willing to pay in full the price of its buyout clause: 60 million euros.

The English club has already communicated to the athletes for their interest and now the decision is in the hands of Aguero, who in the next few hours could put towards the Premier League.

Agero contained in the sights of several clubs, including Real Madrid, Florentino Perez.

My Spanish girlfriend goes to English lessons with Maxi Rodriguez and often has a chat to him about the going's on for Liverpool and Argentina.

Rumours are also flying around the place that Joe Cole is signing before England go to the world cup.

20 May 2010 11:24:44
This time last year I gave you some good QPR rumours which all came off.

Here are a few names who will be signing for us this season..

Darren Ambrose, Jules Speroni, Clint Hill and Jobi McAnuff are all but done, as is Jamie Mackie (already official). We're looking to bring in either Darius Henderson or Rob Hulse as a big target man to knock the opposition CB's about and maybe Danny sttu to return on a free.

Gary Hooper has attracted a lot of interest, but rest assured, we are trying to sign the lad. Nate Clyne isn't looking likely. Maynard and Iwelumo are not going to happen. Brizzle want more than £3m for Maynard. Quality striker, but not worth that figure according to us.

I'll let you know if I find out any more..

You Rssssssss

 

20 May 2010 11:22:02

THESE ARE MOST FREQUENT RUMOURS :
TEVEZ to REAL MADRID, LAMPARD to REAL MADRID, FABREGAS to BARCELONA, MILNER to MAN UTD, DINDANE to PANATHINAIKOS, SUCHY to MILAN, GREEN to ARSENAL, TORRES to MAN CITY, ADEBAYOR to LIVERPOOL, IRELAND to LIVERPOOL, GALLAS to MARSEILLE, S. FLETCHER to WEST HAM, BOYD to BIRMINGHAM, HENRY to NEW YORK RB, JOE COLE to TOTTENHAM, BECKFORD to EVERTON, AQUILANI to JUVENTUS, MELO to LIVERPOOL, AGUERO to CHELSEA, MOKOENA to CELTIC

 

20 May 2010 11:06:02
Y.Toure will not be moving to Arsenal. He's satisfied with his place in the team, despite his lack of 1st team football, and discussions from his brother Kolo, who had an acrimonious exit despite his long years at the club, has persuaded Yaya to stay on.

Barca refuses to even pay 60M for Fabregas, and with Yaya out of the picture, the only option left is cash+swap deal for Keita, Thiago and/or Henry

It is ludicrous to think Wenger would take Henry back, so from a personal view I'm already convinced Barca will step up 6070M or 40M+Keita or Thiago (and that Fab is gone this summer)


NO DEAL FOR KEITA YOU DO KNOW HE'S 30 RIGHT? AND YOU DO KNOW WENGERS POLICY ON SIGNING PLAYERS RIGHT? OK, GOOD THEN WE ALL KNOW THAT WONT HAPPEN!
Many rumours about Toure, but the smart money is on any player exchange being Bojan Kjrkic or Gai Assulin. With Fabregas effectively taking Assulin's eventual position, it looks unlikely he'll be given the chance to break through. Arsenal and the Premier League defences would give him a great opportunity to shine and devlop his talent.

Rangers are also close to sealing the signing of Torquay United's wing wizard, Robert O'Connor. The Irish U19s star is out of contract in the summer.

 

20 May 2010 10:55:24
To everyone saying that Maynard is leaving Bristol City, get a grip, we signed him for 2.25 million and obviously no lower than that sum, people saying 1.52 million, you obviously would be terrible a business as you never sell for less than you bought unless that is a last resort. The official Bristol City Website says that no bids have been made, or even enquiries. Maynard himself has said he wants to stay, any less than 5 million would be an insult.

Also, Coppell has said that any old Reading players eg, Shoey, Kitson, Igimarson will not be joining City unless the player is right for the club.

Mancity Tevez almost certain to leave, I think Adebeyor will go as well, both to forgeign shores. Milner will be bought, probably closer to £30m by the time AV play hard ball.
I can't see the likes of Richards, Onouah or Bellamy leaving, however Ireland's and SWP's days are numbered, as are Santa Cruz and all the bench warmers who are on loan at the moment Boij, Caicedo, Jo etc.
MC team for next season:

Cesc is staying at AFC, he understands his current market value and knows Barca do not have the capital to match the valuation as AFC are demanding a min of 40m up front in any final valuation, they will not come back next year as if predicted and Spain win the world cup his value will dramaticaly increase further.
Cesc to stay for two more years

Rangers News.

Not sure if this is good news for us Gers fans or not, but i have been told from a friend whom works for a large Scottish tabloid that Andrew Elis is currently in Edinburgh and the deal to take control of SDM shares will be completed within the next 48/72 hours.

Personally i am sceptical about him, but if he clears the debt and allows Smith to tie down Boyd and get some more bodies in to the club then surely that's not a bad thing ?

Smiths blue and white army.

A few people have mentioned about Bangera having an £8.5m release fee, (where has this been confirmed from??). He signed for Valencia for roughly between £10 12m, (Euro rate at the time depending), I personally can't see Valencia agreeing a release fee LESS than what they have paid for him, Spanish clubs traditialloy treble the amount. Also he's only 20(ish), so in reality he's going to demand a £15m fee. Anything less would be a steal

LFC to hang onto Masch until after the world cup and if he has a good one, his value will increase even more. Irrespective he will leave for £2530 in value, but more likely in player swaps, such as Higuian or VDV & M Diarra

Rumours from north of the border:

Any rumours on celtic can only have limited truth about them as the board are still negotiating with lennon over permanent managers job. Robbie Keane will definately not be coming back as, previous to this season, all celtic offered that tottenham didn't was the champions league., now that has changed Keane will stay in London.

Rangers rumours:
c'mon, use your heads! Rangers are skint atm so any rumours of players coming to rangers (david goodwillie) are obviously false. They will sign nobody this summer but are likely to sell Danny Wilson to Liverpool for around £3million and possibly steven smith to blackpool or cardiff. rangers will not be able to shift Alan mcgregor due to the bagage he carries. Kris Boyd must be smarter than you think because even he knows the only place he will score goals is the SPL. He is just stalling over a new contract to squeeze more money from Rangers. Andy Webster is also returning from a loan spell with Dundee utd

Right jose wants to coach ex cfc players and steven gerrard and rumors atm is that gerrard defo staying a joe cole on his way to anfield could it be that these players already kno who the next manager will be? and what a coup if jose managed to return liverpool to thier former greatness surely that would deem im the greatest manger around this is something he wants to be and what better way to do it!!
if jose was to come in i'd expect to see mario batollie(spelling) and wesley sneijer(spelling) at anfield next season thanks liverpoollauren

West Ham United could be set to name Gregorio Manzano as manager after he was suprisingly not offered a new deal at Mallorca, despite almost taking them into the Champions League this season.
Should he sign a deal to become the Hammers new boss it is expected he will bring a few Mallorca players with him, most notably Mario Suarez to boost the midfield, Dudu Aouate to replace the outgoing Robert Green and Aritz Aduriz to bolster a weak front line.

press conference expected at st. marys this afternoon where it is widely believed that brian stock, inigo calderon, billy painter will be unvieled as saints players {editor's note Billy Paynter? Why would he sign BEFORE the play off final? He has a chance of playing in the division above, I can't imagine anyone not taking it, not when it might be their only chance to test themselves.}


I am a Saints fan and that is absolute rubbish, i agree with the editors not why would he sign before the final, and no one calls press conferences anymore if we do sign one of those players it will simply be announced on the website.

Martin o'neill is ready to walk out of aston villa after randy lerner told him that the next bid over 21m for milner WILL be accepted wheter he approves or not.just home from drinking with a mate of mine who works at villa park and he said that theres muder going on and don't expect o'neill to be there beyond the weekend.
seems funny after lerners comments this week,
and i always liked lerner.obviously a money grabbin yank.i know how pool fans tink now!


Are you a complete moron ?? Milner has hinted he is staying at Villa, Randy in a recent interview said in no uncertain terms that Milner would be staying, Oneill has committed to the club and Randy has committed to MON. Get a grip you friend in Villa Park obviously has access to Randy's office, MON and all transfer dealings !!!!

Now real rumours some names linked with Villa

Jenas possible long time link
Keane possible long time link
Bendtner not sure about this
Boyd ?
Beckford ?
Clyne ?
Dorrans part of any deal involving coker, shorey or davies

20 May 2010 09:05:02
Fabregas update:

Y.Toure will not be moving to Arsenal. He's satisfied with his place in the team, despite his lack of 1st team football, and discussions from his brother Kolo, who had an acrimonious exit despite his long years at the club, has persuaded Yaya to stay on.

Barca refuses to even pay 60M for Fabregas, and with Yaya out of the picture, the only option left is cash+swap deal for Keita, Thiago and/or Henry

It is ludicrous to think Wenger would take Henry back, so from a personal view I'm already convinced Barca will step up 6070M or 40M+Keita or Thiago (and that Fab is gone this summer)

 

20 May 2010 08:19:04
Hello all,

After some time away I have returned.

Firstly, whilst being away I was told that Jonjo to Liverpool was on the cards (about 2 months before the deal) and chose to completely ignore it !! Ha ha ha even The Wizards Sleeve makes mistakes.

Secondly, may I state that some time ago (during the January window) I predicted Joe Cole to Spurs please note that this transfer will happen before the start of the new season.

Coles agent and Redknapp are friends, have been for years since his days at West Ham nothing to be read into that as they both respect each other professionalism, however I do also know that Joe has no intention of leaving London.

The Totts will also make an approach for Shaun Wright Phillips, however Levy is somewhat tentative of Redknapps eagerness to spend beyond his clubs means (look at all his former employers and the state they are in now) so keeps a tight reign on the financial side of all negotiations (this also explains why Joe will go because The Totts can pay his massive wages by offsetting against any fee they would have to pay any clubs that holds his contract).

Other news Gary Hooper of Scthorpe definitely moving on this summer to bigger things (possibly to be Newcastle) I know it's not in the same league as 'David Villa to any club other than Barcelona' but at least it is genuine.

It's plainly obvious that Liverpool are not going to be passing their financial details to all and sundry, however I have been told (by an UNreliable source) that there is a stumbling block with Rafa's contract rather than the man himself (the new owners unwilling to continue with the terms).

The Wizards Sleeve has finished end of message.

Rafa the gafa has vowed buy british and homegrown players this year and here are the players he is trying to bring in, Joe Cole, Stephen Ireland, Gary Cahill, Wayne Hennessey, Steven Fletcher, Jonjo Shelvey and Danny Wilson, he is also trying to bring in two Serbian's for the left hand side Aleksandar Kolarov and Milan Jovanovic, all of these targets are in my opinion quite realistiic and wouldn't cost too much but I don't think Fletcher will fill the void if Torres gets injured I would like to here Liverpool are after a striker like Aguero or Higuain but you don't always get what you want, no really big names Rafa is trying to instill a bit more passion in his squad and is looking mainly for proven premiership players this year rather then going abroad and hoping for a gem.I am expecting Ryan Babel to stay after Rafa's recent seel of approval for the young dutch winger who is yet to live up to his £11million price tag , the squad is going to be trimmed with Riera, Degen, Aurelio, Cavalieri, Martin, Threlfall, San Jose, Plessis, Nemeth, Krygiakos, Benayoun and El Zhar all expected to be shown the exit door.

 

20 May 2010 07:10:11
Jermaine beckford WILL sign for everton, my gaffer is a leeds fan and is good mates with the reserve right back at elland rd, and the deal was done shortly after he scored the winner at old trafford as far as im aware it is a free transfer and he is leaving because ken bates wouldn't pay him 10 k a week as at the min he on around 2 , 3 k . 10 K !! that's right leeds fans you may have kept him if your chairman wasnt as tight as a camels arse in a sandstorm. but good luck for the new season and hope your team does you proud

20 May 2010 08:02:55
Leeds United are looking at a number of possibilities to be Jermaine Beckford's replacement, Jason Roberts, Kris Boyd, Ian Hume, Robert Earnshaw (very unlikely) and also Nick Maynard (better off staying with Bristol City because that's where he belongs) are just a few names being
linked

 

20 May 2010 08:15:16
Nicky Maynard won't go Stoke. He is a Crewe fan. If he does leave Bristol City it will be for Wolves or Everton.

 

20 May 2010 02:42:42
Heard the most fantastic rumour if your a leeds united fan, that they are after Kris Boyd from Glasgow Rangers who is out of contract this summer, a replacement for Jermaine Beckford

I can remember kris boyd saying he will only move to the prem or stay at rangers

 

20 May 2010 03:15:34
As people know the special one will be manager of real madrid next season. He will want to team up with some of his chelsea players to team up with him next season. As madrid struggle at left back A.Cole will go and so will Ricardo Carvalho as they need an extra centre back.

Chelsea will then have to sign replacements. So they will sign Phillip Lamb from bayern munich and they will also sergio aguero from Athletico Madrid. Joe cole will sign new contract after World Cup. Anelka will sign new 2 year deal.

Chelsea team for next year.

Cech
Lamb, Alex, Terry, Ivanovic
Malouda, Lampard, Essien, J.Cole
Drogba, Aguero

Glasgow Rangers are supposedly 80 million in debt because of her majestys tax. So that is why Andrew Ellis will not be taking over Rangers. Boyd, Novo, Broadfoot and Smith will all be leaving. So will Bougy 5 million to Everton, Wilson 4 million to Liverpool, McGregor 6 million to Newcastle and Fleck to Liverpool for 2.3 million.

I got all these from my source who works for Sky Sports News about 5 hours ago but most of these speculation will happen after the world cup.

Fabregas Saga:

There are a few problems now developing with any potential deal; it appears Fabregas is more keen on moving to Barca than Barca are of signing him. And with the ridiculous transfer fees Barca have been throwing around; there is no way Peter Hillwood (not Arsene Wenger) is going to let Cesc leave on anything less than a deal on parity with that of Ibrahimovic's last summer.

It would appear as Fabregas has stated he wishes to join them that Barca think they can get Cesc in a deal worth around 40million ("on the cheap") however Arsenal will look to the Ibrahimovic deal last summer. 40million + Eto'o (a deal worth at least 65million) for at the time a 27 year old, who some people at the top of the game (Martin O'Neill springs to mind) simply don't rate him. Also yesterday 40million for a striker turning 29 this season from a club who simply had to sell.

Whereas Cesc is a mdfielder widely regarded as one of the worlds best (and probably now the Premier League's best) and is the age of just 23. He has 4 years left on his contract at a club where he is the club captain and that club have absolutely no desire or need to sell him.

It's becoming obvious Barca don't want to stump up such a deal, but will have to give Arsenal a deal to the value of 62million. Yaya Toure is likely to be involved in such deal, as is young defender Marc Muniesa and a one off payment of 40million.

These are the demands of Arsenal; that are felt be the board to be realistic.

When trying to buy one of the worlds biggest stars you much show respect; you can't go in low and negotiate such a huge deal; Man Utd allowed Ronaldo to leave because they recieved a huge swift offer; the Ibrahimovic, Villa, Schevchenko, Robinho, Kaka (I could probably go on) transfers have all happened in this way. When signing such a huge star the buying club go in and make one bid which they know matches the selling clubs value of the player, if this doesn't happen the deals don't!

In summary a potential deal is on the cards if Barca become more committed to the deal; if they want Fabregas they will have to up their valuation; there is no way Arsenal will budge on this one.

hmmm..well, you've got part of the story.

1. Arsenal have not granted permission to Barca to speak with Fabregas.

2. Numerous websites are now quoting sources within Barca that Pep Guardiola and Fabregas met last week, further stating that a preliminary contract was agreed. Clearly a violation of FIFA and UEFA rules (tapping up) if this meeting took place as rumored.

3. Barca do not have the money to pay more than roughly £35m for Fabregas. They are £400m in debt and just spent £34m on David Villa.

4. Despite what Gillem Balague has said, the meeting between Fabregas and Arsene Wenger was not nearly the contentious affair he wishes it was. Balague works for a Spanish paper and clearly has an agenda to put forth with his continuous stories about Cesc leaving Arsenal.

5. Barca's assertion that Cesc should not be valued so highly because he started his youth program with them is beyond laughable and has no merit in negotiations.

6. Both Arsene Wenger and Peter Hill Wood have stated clearly that they are not interested in selling Cesc to Barca. Wenger even went so far to say that the more Barca talks, the worse it will be for them.

7. Barca have overplayed their hand on this from the start. After several years of blatantly planted stories in Spanish papers, Tiki Burgerstain making public comments about Cesc's "Barca DNA", compelling Barca players to comment on how much they'd love to have Fabregas at the Nou Camp, Arsenal have had enough. If Barca choked on their spit at Arsenal originally demanding a starting point of £40m pounds to begin negotiations, the latest comments from Barca about the meeting with Guardiola and assurances from Spain that Fabregas would be signed by the weekend have only hardened Arsenal & Arsene Wenger's stance. They've just upped their valuation of Fabregas to £80m pounds to even consider whether or not to look at a deal with them.

So, basically, Barca's long history of tapping up the Captain of Arsenal has finally come to it's rightful conclusion if they want him, they're going to have to mortgage the club to get him. Short of that, they can jog on. End of.

 

20 May 2010 03:25:56
Looks like rafa is going to pull a shrewd bit of business with Juve, with a straight swap between Alberto Aquilani and Felipe Melo. Neither has settled in at thier new clubs, both were similarly priced investments and both would probably suit the other's league and style of play better..

RUSSELL could well be allowed to leave & ADEYEMI & DALEY will be sent out on loan to League One to get experience.
Paul Lambert is said to be targeting namesake Rickie LAMBERT from Southampton although they will obviously be reluctant to let him go, if FORSTER bid fails excity player LEWIS will be targeted as there is strong links between Peterborough & Norwich, Jed STEER could be used as part of the deal.
Other City targets are:
Darren AMBROSE Palace (cash strapped Palace looking to sell)
Matthew TAYLOR Exeter (Exeter are reluctant but Norwich should cough up the fee required after a few negotiations)
Nicky BAILEY Charlton (fee may be stumbling block)
&
Nathan ECCLESTON + Martin KELLY Liverpool (Loan)

In a dream world the friendlies against Newcastle & Everton will also be used as a link up for potential loans next season!

How deluded can Liverpool fans get? Jesus Navas suffers from chronic homesickness. He can't even travel with the Spanish squad. Similar type of thing to marcus trestcothick. Real rumours: after the sale of yakubu to west ham, except motes to move for darren bent. No more major signings just new contracts. Pienaar to flirt with clubs to gain a better contract. Kolorov and scotty parker to sign for the sinking ship. {editor's note – He is almost certain to be in South Africa with the Spanish squad, so I guess that proves you wrong. He has been having treatment for his homesickness and it is said to be pretty much cured now.}

I am sick of hearing about Nicky Maynard leaving City. He LOVES playing for us and he LOVES the city. To the leeds and Sjoke "stoke" City fans wanting to have him in their teams, stop trying to unsettle him. I spoke to my mate Alan Walsh about these rumours and he said that Coppell wants to keep him. COME ON U REDS!!

I'm an Arsenal supporter and I think the reason there has been no updates from either Cesc or Arsene regarding Cesc's departure is down to 2 possibilities:
1 Arsenal doesn't want to annouce anything until they reach an agreement on the price. Because if they say "Fabregas wants to go" and negotiations fail over money and Fab ends up staying, there will be a backlash against him by the fans.
OR
2 Arsene is not even in the country, and never even met with Cesc, and all this is media talk. In that case when Wenger comes he'll clarify things that Fab wants to stay.

I think it's 1 more than 2, unfortunately.
Moving on, I think if Fabregas go, we will get both Ozil (Arsenal target since 2008) and Melo (Arsenal target since 2009). Nasri will show the world next season that it's the system not the player. Good luck Cesc, and thank you Barca for your business.
