Newcastle United Rumours
The Ronaldinho transfer will not happen, although we did actually ask of his availability and got quoted.
People who will be coming in are Rod Fanni, Fabio Cannavaro, and possibly Luke Young.
The big news though is that Newcastle will break their transfer record by signing Berbatov of Tottenham for £28 million, with Ameobi and if the £13 million is met Martins being those sacrificed. Trust Me ;)
Please does anybody know who jimmy floyd hasselbaink is going to sign for since his release from Charlton.
Celtic to sign santi ezequero from FC Barcelona
mendy from PSG
and a suprise centre half
Real Madrid to sign Robben, Sneijder and Diego
AC Milan to sign Heinze, pato and Emerson
To the person claiming that while he was renewing his season ticket at Goodison he saw Riquelme, Vogel and Pienaar arrive, next time your going to lie make sure you are going to get most of your facrs right. I am a season ticket holder at Goodison and all renewals had to be done before the April 28th 2007. The new season tickets aredue to be sent out next week, so do not lie about seeing the players while you were renewing your season ticket. O.k now to the real rumours. Once Betis and Vogel agree on compensation he will become Moyes's second Summer signing, this will be followed by the signing of Pienaar on loan, putting to bed any rumours Fernandes will be coming back on loan. Moyes will then follow up with a bid for Baines. I would have said it was between £2– £3 million + Beattie but now Vaughan is out I think it will just be a straight cash deal.
Yakubu will join Manchester City by the end of next week for £10 million + Darius Vassell. Southgate wanted a replacement for Yakubu before selling him but is willing to sell if he can link up with his former Aston Villa team mate.
Just to let your know Freddie Adu is 18 since the start of June and Parma are very interested in him at the moment.
City to sign Yakubu for £12 million and Chris wilhelmson for £3 million over the weekend
A £7 million offer has been put it for Leighton Baines and this will put off the likes of Sunderland from making an improved offer. Also Hassem Trabelsi will join the club on a trial along with a 18–year old Cardiff forward, I have heard this from very reliable sources at a local newspaper
Steven Carr from Newcastle is a possible target but a more likely option will be another loan deal for Simpson from Man United or Michael Johnson from Manchester City on loan. LuaLua is a possible attacking option as he still has not sold his home in the north east and Roy Keane is an admirer.
Wesley Sneijder is not going anywhere near Villa Park unless Aston Villa cough up £20 million. That is how much Ajax will let him go for because they have already lost Ryan Babel to Liverpool. Also £20 million is about all the money Villa have to spend. Looks like Martin O'Neill will have to change his target.
To the guys who said that Rangers do all their signing talks at Murray park, this is true, James Beattie and his agent were being shown round the stadium to give him a feel for the place, he will be wearing the royal blue within a week
I believe this rumour to be rated at 50– 50, the rumour being Glasgow Rangers signing Juan 'seba' Veron following his release by Chelsea. reason why he has not signed before now is Copa America commitments. Finally naismith a definitely before next Wednesdays deadline. peace out monamee
I'm employed by a company that is purpose is to look into foreign nationals living and workin in the UK. recently a name landed on my desk and it was not until I have been watching the under20's World Cup thatI realised it is significance.
Angel Di Maria, a 19 year old Argintine
I have heard that Arsenal are interested in this player and this would certainly make sense. He is a left winger and he plays for Rosario Central and is participating of the Under 20's World Cup in Canada.
However given his current situation he will be denied a work permit.
Steven Caldwell to replace the departing Sol Campbell who is going to The Newcastle. Expect another younger CH with European experience to keep the heat on Campbell/Rozenhal Taylor/Ramage.
Watch out for Baines going to Liverpool and not Everton.
Heinze mayb have a future at Man United after Evra stunning performance at LW.
Shorey looks like the first choice for Big Sam at LB and with rumours of Dyer going south to the Hammers there is every chance ther maybe be players swapped in the deal. Mullins has been mentioned as well as Noble.
Leighton Baines is buying a house off my mate, but cannot get it until Wigan let him sign for Everton, which he is desperate to do.
To they guy who thinks I was very drunk in the pub and that Fowler was on his holidays. There were about 50 witnesses in the bar as well as getting his photograph and autograph on my bands cd. I was drinking coke all night. Sorry to disappoint you. If you're going to pick holes in rumours then do it to the ones that are not true.
I do not pretend to know things about players. I just know what I heard and what I saw.
Sam allardyce is looking to sell Emre and Dyer to either Bayer Leverkusen, besiktas, Lyon or Everton, the Hammers, Tottenham respectively. to make way for either wesley schnEider, Van Der Vaart or will make another swoop for Deco.
Newcastle to be back in Champions League where they belong
Ladbrokes have stopped taking bets on Jermaine Defoe to be the Pompey number 9 next season because so many people have placed that bet. there must be something in that.
Andy Cole to Nottingham Forest
Luke Young to Middlesbrough for £2.5 million
SWP to Tottenham (undisclosed)
Aaron Lennon to Middlesbrough (undisclosed)
"Extraordinaryly as it sounds, he could be the first cornish footballer to play in the Premier League. "
Get your facts right, Nigel Martyn and Matty Etherington all hail from Cornwall and have played hundreds of Premier League games between them.
Liverpool definitely not signing Heinze from United as I told everyone from the very start.
Chiellini from Juve is top priority now. He could be available for a fee of around £7,000,000 as he has fallen out with the Juve camp.
Ljungberg will stay at Arsenal. His move to Fiorentina did not materialise in the end and he knew all along that he could not leave the Grove. It's in his blood. The Man CitY/Sven rumour was never going to happen. He has publically stated (threw his agent) that he would not ever wear another Premier League shirt)
Luka Modric (Dinamo Zagreb) will join for sure, possibly in January and eventually replace Ljungberg.
Arsene will sign a new deal at the Emirates before the start of the season. This will happen after the American Business Tycoon Stan Kroenke ups his stake past 30 percent in the coming weeks.
This will trigger the transformation of Arsenal football club for years to come.
One signing that will happen before the window shuts on the 31st August will blow the lid off the rest of the Premier League.
For me there can only be one or two players with this potential.
I'm not an Arsenal or Norwich fan but a few mates are sometimes down at London Colney and they talk to the younger fringe players a fair bit and said that Johan Djourou and Justin Hoyte are joining the Canaries for the season on loan in the next week or so. It gets them playing regular football and Norwich want to increase their defensive options.
Leighton Baines to sing for Sunderland by next Wednesday for £6 million pounds.
Roy Keane to make a move onloan for Darren Fletcher of Man United.
Expect Juan Sebastien Veron to sign for Sunderland as early as next Monday.
Trinidad and Tobago Midfielder Silvio Spann is on trial with Sunderland expect Keane to make a move for him sometime next week as he has impressed in training and will be used as cover for Carlos Edwards.
Liverpool will get Chelsealini for £7 million pounds and Quaresma for 16.5 million pounds. they will not get Simao or Mancini as they do not show enough will to join Liverpool and they do not need another starter.
To the guy on about Freddy Adu, he is in fact 18 and can join Celtic but at this moment he looks likely to stay in MLS.
Celtic will however be signing Americans Frank Simek from Sheff Wednesday, Landon Donovan of the LA Galaxy and Danny Szetela from Columbus Crew. Simek and Donovan will join before the window shuts and Szetela will join in January on a free. The Galaxy are being forced into moving on Landon as he takes up a designated players spot which will not be there in 2008 according to new MLS rules.
Celtic are also set pickup Rod Fanni but this transfer will only happen if Bobo Balde completes his move to Sunderland.
Frank Simek– £1.5 million
Landon Donovan– £4 million
Rod Fanni– £4 million
Roben–Real Madrid (done deal)
Angel de Maria–Arsenal
Stewart Yetton is not from cornwall he is from Plymouth
Angel di maria is not going to Salamanca. Arsenal will not loan him. He will get a Special talent work permit. He is too good for Spanish scond division. He will join Arsenal's Austrian training camp. He is not future Cristiano Ronaldo. His play is similar to Puerta of Sevilla.
Arsenal had given professioanl contract for some young players. But none of them will get first team this year.

Stephen Hughes and Rab Douglas are both set to move to Leeds United once their transfer embargo has been lifted.
I have it on good authority that Alfonso Alves is currently on holiday in portugal after the Copa America, and he will link up with the rest of the players from Sunderland while they are there over the weekend on a training exercise. Roy (the king) Keane will have a good look at him before making a decision on offering £8 million. if he likes what he see's then Alves will be a Sunderland player on Wednesday. blacky SAfc4life.
Kenny Miller or Alan Smith will sign for Everton in the first week of august. also Riquelme will not be signing that bloke who saw him in the Everton car park must have been trippin because I did not see vogal or Riquelme and I was there all day.
