Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.



 
An interesting rumour surrounding Giovanni Dos Santos of Spurs and Chelsea's Scott Sinclair is that we will see a straight swap in the Summer as neither are getting any first team opportunities at their current clubs. Do Santos who is enjoying his time at Ipswich knows he needs to get back to the top level or kickstart his career back in Spain. Sinclair also appears to be keen to move on, but sees it as important that he stays in the top division.
  Liverpool are in advanced talks with Athletico,Valencia and Arsenal for Aguero Silva and shockingly Walcott.Expect one of the three to sign for Liverpool in the summer. Babel could go as part of the Aguero or Walcott deal but not the Silva one as Valencia want cash. You may say Wenger won't sell but from what i have heard Theo wants the move as he is a lifelong Lfc fan so Arsenal could be convinved to sell. Expect 1 of these three to be the new Liverpool number 7.

REDREPORT. .Justice for the 96!. .YNWA!
  Rafa's main areas for improvement this summer are to replace Lucas, Pennant and Keane. Three back up players only. He has in his sights Cana (Marseille), Johnson (Boro) and Aliadierre (Boro). A few youngsters will probably sign but the main objective is too save for a major bid for Aguero for the season after. Benitez knows he won't be able to replace Gerrard with a like for like so he will opt for the little argentine instead. He will have couple of years to learn from the master and get a good understanding with Torres. Who here wouldn't want a Torres/Gerrard/Aguero front line? Wait and see peeps.
  Bolton are looking to make bids for Morrison (£4 Mil), Gary O'Connor (£2 Mil) and Geovani (£3 Mil)this summer.
  Liverpool this summer

Common sense prevail i don't play football Manager


Outs

Dossena will head back to Italy for 5 – 7m due to LB being covered with Aurelio and InsuaDossena(both played well this season)
Lucas to be loaned out (hopefully sold, he awful, it bothers me he gets to pull the shirt on over his really bad haircut). with barry coming in.


Ins

G.Johnson will come in at RB to compete with Arbeloa.
Gareth Barry will be signed to give more options in midfield, which will allow Lucas to be loaned out (hopefully sold, he awful, it bothers me he gets to pull the shirt on over his really bad haircut).
New Striker – Unknown , becos if Torres is injured we are toothless.
Right Winger – Possiably Silva, but probably either downing (boro going down) but most likely Kuba Błaszczykowski.
Centrer Halfs Raul Albiol & Matthew Upson – to replace Hyypia and Agger if he leaves (hope he doesnt).


Please comment on these no magic kids from Brazil or argentina


Search your feeling you know it to be true.


We may sign Bagpuss, Chocky & Grotbags but i don't think we'll have the money.

  I am good friends with walter smith's son Steven and I can confirm that the following are in fact done deals.

Incoming this summer will be

Steven Milne from St Johnstone
Martin Hardie from St Johnstone
Ricky Waddell and Gregory Tade from Clyde
Steven Crawford from East Fife (depending on salary expectations)

In addittion the club are also evaluating the feasibility of swoops for

Sean Kilgannaon of Forfar and Paul di Giacomo of Airdrie.
  Scottish rumours heard from a good source who knows his stuff cos he's a football agent – Craig Gordon to Arsenal for £7 million, James Morrison to Fulham/Bolton £4 million, Darren Fletcher to Everton £6 million, Arthur Boruc to Torino £6, Fadin' McGready to Blackburn/Villa £7.5 million, Andy Dorman to Rangers £700k, Alan Hutton to Man Utd for £9 million, Lee Millar to Rangers for free, Martin Stranzl to Rangers for free, Alan McGregor to Tottingham £6 million, Steven Fletcher to Celtic £4.5 million, James McArthur to Rangers £1 million, James McCarthy to Celtic £3 million, Lee Wilkie to Hearts £500k, Neil McCann return to Hearts for free and errr. . . oh, that's it just now.
  Richards is set to stay at Eastlands next season but Dunne wants new challenge and may well move to Newcastle if they stay up. Dunne will be replaced by Samba of Blackburn. City will also sign Seedorf, Cambiasso and Gattuso from Italy. Santa Cruz will add fire power upfront.
  It's all goin pete tong at SJP. Just to compound the magpie nightmare, ashley is being sued for all he is worth from various sources and will lose a substantial chunk of his cash. The result, NUFC to go into administration resulting in points deductions. Consequently, the floundering club is to be sold on the cheap to Sir Fat Fred of Shepherd. Deep joy.

Torres and Tevez, The new partnership that will be liverpools striking force next season.

Tevez has and i can confirm has joined Liverpoll. Fergie is furious at loosing the player especially to rivals Liverpool hence all the media feud with Rafa Benitez. Reports linking Liverpool with other players are unlikely to be true however it is believed that rafa is looking for more wingers to help his side win the title next season especially if his system changes to 4–4–2 to accompany the arrival of Tevez.
  Liverpool Ins: Barry,Silva,Johnson,Kierrison Man Utd Ins: Tevez,Young,Dawson Chelsea Ins: Hiddink,Milner,Villa,Abidal Arsenal Ins: Jagielka,Yaya,
  To the guy(kid)who wrote this:
I WAS UP IN LIVERPOOL A FEW DAYS AGO AND I SAW . . . . .cARLOS TEVEZ. . .AND MASCHERANO.

???????WAHT ELSE CAN THIS MEAN????????

TEVEZ WILL BE SIGNING
ALSO AT THE LIVERPOOL FULHAM MATCH I OVER HEARD SOME BACKROOM STAFF TALKING ABOUT
#####bASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGERSWORK PERMIT ########
APPARENTLY HIS PASSPORT IS (SOMETHING IN WEIRD SPANICH ACENT)

WATCH THIS SPACE
BUT DONT LOOK INTO THE SUN IT MIGHT BURN YOUR EYES

well it couldn't possibly be that there just good friends it must mean that he's joining liverpool, you'll never guess what i saw the entire ukrainian football team in london awhile back i guess there all joining chelsea it must be i mean what other possible explaination is there???? muppet. and as for Bastian Schweinsteiger's "work permit" which one would that be he's a german international and as a german is a member of the european union meaning he doesn't reguire a work permit to work in this country. again i say muppet. and as for your little comment at the end i would assume that's a knock at my little end piece "if you look to the sky's you'll miss that which is right infront of you" now i best explain this for you. people have stared to the sky at the stars for hundreds of years to try and work out the future i.e. "star signs" but if you realise no one actually can tell the future now matter what "insider" infomation they have again if you asked the real madrid top brass who they were going to sign last summer you would have been told Ronaldo as many of them did tell people and the press but alas he didn't sign as man utd wouldn't sell him so until the deal is signed every piece of info is RUMOUR and nothing else. no one knows who will definatly sign until the player puts ink to a contract. so it's a little joke to all the readers who read this site and laugh at people who state such stupid ramblings as: he will definalty be signing. so i'd just like to end my little rant with you are OWNED. Lol. oh and best put a random rumour as this is wat the site is for ermm. . Gerrard Torres Ronaldo and Lampard to LA Galaxy this is a definate from a really reliable source. lol
  There has been a lot of hot air written about what will or will not be happening at West Ham. There are currently five options open to the club. The most unlikely is that the current chairman will raise new capital and stay long term. Next is that the Icelandic banks take over, this is also unlikely. There are three other interested parties, a consortium led by Michael Tabor, Anil Ambani and the Al–Kharafi family. Each have promised to invest in the club with the last two also promising to push ahead with a new stadium, they are not interested in the Olympic site unless it is for sale rather than lease. The only hold up to a deal being done is the FA/PL investigation. Once that is cleared up then the sale will go ahead. Ambani is currently leading the pack with a bid of around £90 million. The business plan involves steady investment in the playing staff with emphasis on the youth policy. There are no plans to follow the Manchester City route which has attracted ridicule. If Ambani or the Al–Kharafi family are successful then the manager can expect a large transfer budget but with conditions, No hugely inflated fees, no players at the end of their careers looking for a last pay day, and no silly wage packets. Things should be much clearer to all by mid May.
  Hyundai A–League side Wellington Phoenix looking at signing Francis Jeffers as marquee player
  Birmingham City to bid for Barry Ferguson and Kris Boyd of Rangers
  16 year old Brazilian starlet Wellington is likely to sign for Arsenal in the summer having already signed a pre–contract agreement. Ryan Babel is being considered by Wenger, as a long–term admirer (who he was linked to after Henry's departure) Babel is likely to leave Liverpool in the summer, Wenger is considering offloading Nicklas Bentdner at the end of the campaign and playing Babel in his prefered CF role. Both Arsenal and Chelsea are following Joao Moutinho, however he has recently signed a new deal (till 2014) with Sporting and has a buyout clause of 22.5 million euros, In addition Wenger has long been tracking Veloso who has fallen out with Sporting coach Bento and is very likely to leave
  Man City are looking to sign:

Diego (Werder Bremen) 25mil
Mikel Arteta (everton) 19mil
Fernando Llorente (Ath. Bilbao) 16mil
Stewart Downing (Middlesborough) 12mil
Glen Johnson (Portsmouth) 12mil

They are not going to be able to get the best players from the best clubs in the world so they will try to build with players who are available who have a lot of talent.

Benjani, Vassell, Garrido, Ball, Petrov, Mills, Schmeichel and a few others.

Jo will return from loan.
  Real Madrid, (following the presidential elections), are expected to have a mass clearout to replenish their squad. Up to 17 players could go including:

Cannavaro–Juventus (free)
Metzelder–Leverkusen (5 million)
Miguel Torres–Qatar (free)
Drenthe (loan, with view to permanant deal)–Juventus
Codina–One of the mid–table Spanish Liga sides (2–3 milion)
Javi Garcia–Mid–table rival (2 million)

And depending on recent performances (And possible new manager's decision)

Snejder– Juventus/Atletico (18–20 million)
Van Der Vaart–Chelsea/Inter (15 million)
Robben–Liverpool/Man Utd
Mamadou Diarra–Inter/AC (10 million)
Van Nistelrooy–Tottenham/Newcastle (8 million)

It is possible some will be used as makeweight to bring Ronaldo to Madrid + the loan of 70 million euros from the bank of Santander

The only safe players from the fire sale are: Higuain, Ramos, Casillas,Pepe, Raul and Huntelaar

Their main targets are:

Bruno Alves–30 million
Diego–25 million
Maicon–20 million
David Villa–50 million
Silva–30 million
Ronaldo– 70 million
Xabi Alonso –20 million

Highly unlikely more than 1–2 go through
  Barry Ferguson is going to Birmingham, FACT. This will be announced at the end of the season although his uncle said he might now play for rangers again due to injuries. It is a done deal, he has cut all strings with walter and ally and has been told to find a new club for next season. I'm personally gutted, think he has been a great servant to rangers.
good luck barry

Also rangers are looking for a replacement for weir with zander diamond being one option others that were metioned were. tonnel, shittu and possibly chris baird from fulham. there is also a rumour spreading like wild fire that if we can off loa enough players off our wage bill rangers will bring Kanu next season on a two year contract.

  Argyle rumours ,
sturrock to be moved upstairs
gallagher to coventry ,(dont fancy another relegation fight)
empenzer to be shown the door,(always injured and getting paid to much)
judge to stay on loan if blackburn don't get relegated (from what ive seen he is better then some players already in 1st team , wayne andrews )
fletcher to sign permenant deal (only if neil warnock is not the next argyle manager)
  Hi all, got it on good authority that there will be two brazilians arriving on merseyside this summer. One is Jo who will sign for Everton permanently from City and the other is Rafihna who will sign for Liverpool from Schalke.

Also on the grapevine are talks with Michael Owen about a return to Liverpool. This, however, will only go through if Newcastle are relegated. Martins is in talks with Wigan, West Ham and Fulham about a possible move as well.

Suprisingly, Athletico Madrid, Villareal, Roma, Fiorentina, PSG and Monaco have all enquired about Anelka as they feel he can be there 'Main Man'

Man Utd are looking at off loading Hargreaves because they don't feel they are getting their moneys worth.

Arsenal are looking at Javi Martinez from Athletico Bilbao or Joao Moutinho from Sporting Lisbon as Wenger see's these as quality Midfielders to play with Fabregas.

Villa are looking at Mikel from Chelsea as he wants regular first team football.

I have these all from extremely reliable sources, they are not confirmed deals by any means, just what's being banded about by scouts, chief exec, directors of football etc.

DT
  I was wondering if anyone else has heard the roumor which is doing the rounds on the club deck at the pearly blue gates of Ibrox. . . . . apparently Man Utd have agreed with Rangers to set up a feeder link with Rangers, the same set up they have with Royal Antwert ?? , with a lump sum 7.5m being paid to Rangers in the summer. This will enable Man Utd first choice on any youth players younger than 19 at an agreed percentage. Also lead to believe that as part of the deal Man Utd will alow 1 reserve player to go on loan each season but must make a minimum of 8 first team aperances in that season. It is also aparently to help Rangers fight of the big 3 in the EPL who keep circling arround Willson, Loy & Lennon. Personaly if this is true then i think Murray is destroying the club, and after seeling the jerseys hes selling the club piece by piece.
