Just been informed that goncAlves, angolan forward, has signed for Man United. Man United also after Mauro zarate. Argentine forward plays in qatar.
Newcastle are to keep Owen and sign Heskey and have a Duff/Milner Owen Heskey forward line in a 'kind of ' 4–3–3 which will look more like a 4–3–1–2. This will open the door to a creative midfielder or the likes of Eidur Gudjohnsen. This will be the end of Ameobi at SJP. Owen will then sign a new contract, this may not sit well for many fans. Allardyce will look at replacing Owen AND Viduka allowing Smith and Martins their chances while settling another couple of forwards. Wes Brown is a done deal with Carr likely to journey to Sunderland but with the African nations, this may not happen until the Summer. Sylvain Armand will be added to the back line this winter too.
Former Hearts capt Steven pressley interested in the vacant Hibernian job, wants to move into management as thinks his back problems getting worse.
Might form a double act with him and Neil Lennon.
tho Craig brewster is favorite leaving John Robertson to return to Inverness.
In January, Momo Sissoko will be offloaded for £9 million and Albelda will be brought in for £3 million. Kakha Kaladze will also be signed for £4 million.
Eduardo will not be sold because Arsene Wenger is extremly impressed by his progress as he has come from a complete different league as the EPL carling cup and Champions League and has already got eight games for the club in only 14 apperences. Arsene Wenger has said he will be fully into the club by 2008. and Arsene Wenger Has been exceptionallly impressed with Nikolay Dimitrov after the manager haned him his first game during his trial due to the absents of Nacer Barazite and he got his first goal and a assist. Tresor Mputu and a few other players will signed in January. Arsene Wenger will break the Arsenal transfer record and will splash out £17.3 million on who?
Chris Gunter is Off to Totenham in January. The transfer fee has been agreed, just the formality of agreeing terms and a medical to come. Cardiff's loss is Totenham's gain. You have got yourself a gem. Be careful though you will have a team full of taffs at this rate hehehe.
John Collins will be revealed as the new Fulham manager before the new year
West Bromwich news__ Bednar to sign permanently in Summer. Steven Fletcher from Hibernian in Summer. Kevin Mcdonald from Dundee in January. James McCarthey from Hamilton in Summer. And finally Acuna from Cadiz for 4.1 million in Summer. John Hartson will leave for Motherwell in January as Mark Mcghee looks for another forward.
Walter Smith has enquired about the availability of,
1. W. Palacious (Blackburn)
2. A. Mokoena (Birmingham)
3. T. Cahill (Everton)
4. P. Lovenkrands (Schalke), possibly signing for the Famous Glasgow Rangers during the Jan. transfer window, Wattie will also definitely make one major BLUEchip signing that will shock the jungles, thus allowing the Berrs to regain and return the Scottish Premier League title to it's rightful home, THE PEOPLES STADIUM.
man united news
Sir Alex has moved quickly to sign Manucho the 24 year old angolan after a succesfull trial. Sir Alex has told the legal reps that he wants the work permit sorted out at any expense. Manucho is a raw version af Adebayour who United missed out on. United coaches beleive that within a season he can be as good as van nistelrooy or even better.
the other transfers this January are
Defoe swap for Saha. Ramos belives he can get Saha fit and he has more to offer than Defoe who United think is perfect for letting Manucho settle down over a season or so. May include a small amount of cash or a loan.
Shorey for £2 million and Eagles on loan for the remainder of the season. to give back up to Evra.
United hav failed to agree a deal for lahm so insted a move for sagnol will be made in the next few days. This is likely to be knocked back so United will move for Glen jhonson (wes Brown and cash) or if this fails then £6 million for hutton is already in place but is initially agrred for the Summer.
No move will be made for Anelka, Berbatov, Lennon or the other names flying about.
int the Summer:
Giggs will be replaced (Pederson, bale, Damian Duff. sum of the names being mentioned)
new right back if the Brazillain kids do not get their work permits
veloso from lisbon (8 million)
and a move will be made for afifth stricker either huntaler or benzema but this will depend largley on what Tevez agrees as United are refusing to pay over the top for him. (max £25 million) not the 35 quoted.
Momo Sissoko will move back to Valencia in January for either a fee £15 milion or for £8 million + Albelda and Angulo.
