Leicester will not sack allen. they will make three more signings, these will be Riordan, douglas and Jason Roberts.
Sam sodge to sign for Sheff Wednesday for £1 million to strengthen defense and are also looking at two other signings.
City would have to be crazy to sell Richards but as this is football they just may. Many clubs have been linked but it's going to be the Newcastle.
Another addition to the black n white ranks is Guti but this pretty much is all about Chelsea and Robben, though Guti is certainly nowt like Robben with the addition of Wesley Sneijder it makes Guti a little left out. Put this with past comments regarding his development at the club Jose Maria wants out, that is Guti by the way.
As Deco is talk of the town I have heard that this is a possible smoke screen for the purchase of Juan Roman Riquelme after recent 'silent' dealings regarding Enrique.
Leicester are in talks to take John Hartson to the Walkers stadium. They also have granted a one week trial to welsh youngster Peter Vass who currently is at Rhyl FC, he has been likened to Craig Bellamy who also went through the Rhyl academy.
Arsene knows A major rumour is circulating the Emirates that despite Arsene Wenger saying he is nowhere near making any signings, up to four players could be signed before the end of the transfer window?
The wise money would be on Luka Modric (Dinamo Zagreb), Lassana Diarra (Chelsea) and a loan deal for Franco Di Santo (audax Italiano).
But the fourth player is yet unknown?
There are also a handful of youngsters on the London Colney radar, the rumour is that three players who are playing at the under 17's World Cup are also Arsenal bound?
Eden Hazard (Lille), Alberto Morgado (alaves) and AlFred N'Diaye (as nancy) are the players in question.
Quite posting stupid rumours. Arsenal are obviously waiting until Champions League qualifiers are over for MODRIC because if the qualify he stays, if they do not then he goes to Arsenal. It's pretty obvious + (cup tied) so what here are other players to play. Diarra will come last day because Wenger is not stepping up the chase because smaller teams see this and overbid. Cristian Nazarith will sign from cololmbia U17. If Arsenal slaughter Manchester City this weekend then it will urge Micah to not sign as he will see that Manchester City are not up to snuff with his favorite team. Only problem Liverpool, Chelsea will try outragous bid which could see anoter Arsenal fan go to a "money" team, but would not be suprised if a swap deal is done with sendoros and money. Pederson will sign for Flamini + cash. Suprise could be Fred of Lyon (remember adebaor falling out with Monaco) watch for it.
watch out for josmer altidore.
With Moyes getting increasingly annoyed with Middlesbroughs transfer demands for nigerian forward Yakubu, Everton are looking at alternative (international) forwards who have a different playing style to Andy johnson. These are rumoured to be Michael Owen (Newcastle), Klaas Jan Huntelaar (Ajax) and Vagner Love (CSKA Moscow). All of these targets around £9– £12 million. Moyes also to bid for Stewart Downing by the end of the week. Check the papers.
Fernandes to sign tommorow.
Arteta For Spain.
Heard it on good authority that Andy Cole is about to join dwight York at Sunderland, Heinze will not play for Man United again, neither will he play for Liverpool. Wenger will not sign anyone before august 31st, but maybe sign micah Richards next Summer. Lauren to join Newcastle. Mourinho will sign Alves.
Riquilme to AS Roma 15 m
Anelka to AS Roma 10 m
To the guy who says Jon Stead is going to Derby. why would United sell what appears to be the bargin of last season 750 k was a steal for a 23 year old yorkshire lad and he has played very well warranting a starting place. Robbo I hope will not sell him. As for Andy Reid he is a long term target for the Blades yes I agree, however we just got a big left foot player in Carney from OZ so I cannot see that happening either but I am aware he wants to move back up north so that would be a good buy for the Blades. United do need a good goalkeeper to keep Paddy on his toes and I hear that Austin Ejide the current Nigerian goalkeeper at 6 foot 5 inch is looking for a move to England. he plays in France for Bastia and I am told Robbo would love him here.
Liverpool officials are at Italy to finalize a deal for chiellini or Kaladze as the Heinze deal has broken. Also Rafa may let Kewell go as he will play Riise more in the LM as Babel and Leto settles in
Newcastle has been urged to keep the faith with Albert Luque by the Newcastle legend Marcelino. Not heard of this 'legend' possibly not. Rumour has it that he was a footballer. Newcastle made him a millaire and in return he would not play in case he broke a toe nail. Like anyone is going to listen to him.
Luque looks to be taking a exit route via Holland with Feyenoord leading a Dutch pack with PSV Eindhoven and Ajax.
