Swindon are set to beat Bristol City to the signature of highly-rated Forest Green youngster Peter Wyatt. Wyatt, a pacey right winger come natural goalscorer, won Forest Greens player of the season and has been spotted by Wise as 'one for the future'. The youngster will sign by the end of the week.
Listen up all Arsenal fans.
ARSENAL'S SQUAD 2006-2007. By contact of A. Wenger.
Expect this to be the first team squad next season. Arsene has already showed he wants the formation to go continental by buying Rosicky.
BUFFON will come from Juve as they owe us for PV4, and we need a new long term GK.
EBOUE has impressed so will replace Lauren.
TOURE will be our No.1 CB for years to come.
SENDEROS will be long term replacement for Sol.
COLE will stay despite rumours.
GILBERTO will stay No.1 DCM for another year. No need to splash out on £10 Mascherano etc.
FABREGAS is consistant and is improving greatly.
ROSICKY will adopt the new offensive mid position. Hleb will switch with him & Van Persie.
VAN PERSIE has proved himself in World Cup and will play in Bergkamp's position-ish, supplying the two centre forwards and in turn scoring a few too. This is where he is most potent.
TORRES is as good as a done deal and will be announced soon. He can head the ball from crosses from RVP so offers an aerial threat which Arsenal have not had for years.
HENRY will be our best CF for at least 3 more years.
LEHMANN will go if Buffon is signed. Maybe back to Germany.
LAUREN will go. Expect to see another unknown for the 2nd RB slot.
CAMPBELL may go to Portsmouth and Wenger will invest in either Curtis Davies or Walter Samuel.
CLICHY will stay and be No.2 RB.
FLAMINI will stay and provide cover in Midfield or LB.
REYES will stay & provide more attacking options throughout the season.
LJUNGBERG may go or put up with 2nd spot ot Van Persie unless Van Persie doesn't hit form.
Also expect random bids for Defensive midfield players on the cheap. Ibrahimovic will be bought from Juve if the Torres deal somehow falls though, although he might be bought anyway for good backup.
Arsene wants to win the Championship next season and belives this formation will work in the Premiership as well as the Champions league. We will not allow lesser teams to bully us in prem.
Trust me all of this info will prove to be true, you heard it here first.
Arsenal to spend about 40m this summer on: 20m Torres , 5m Davies , Buffon(rest of Vieira money),10m Ribery and 1.5 on Porto's young Brazilian Anderson , 500 000 on Merida , 3m Sahin
Torres has agreed to join Arsenal. The negotiations are for an initial fee of 20 million pounds, rising to 30 million pounds should Arsenal win the Champions League. Athletico have expressed a desire for Robin Van Persie so the initial fee could be knocked down if he is included in the deal _ _.
Kevin Nolan is to join Liverpool for £6 million this summer! The boyhood Liverpool fan will replace Dietmar Hamman who is heading the other way. He won't get a starting spot and he knows that but will fulfill his dream.
Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy will be announced as the replacements for Fernando Morientes and Djibril Cisse early next week or on Friday. Monday is the likely press conference.
Benitez feels Peter Crouch could be a super sub and provide a goal nearly every match in that role and may opt to have a Bellamy/Kuyt partnership at Anfield and a Bellamy/Crouch partnership away from home. If Benitez shocks everybody with the £18 million record signing of David Villa then Dirk Kuyt will probabaly not come. As it stands at the moment (LIVERPOOL are not cash strapped) and incoming will be:
<> CRAIG BELLAMY
<> DIRK KUYT
<> KEVIN NOLAN (possible)
<> DANIEL ALVES
<> VICTOR SANCHEZ
<> FABIO AURELIO
<> GABRIEL PALETTA
<> MARK GONZALEZ
To all blue blooded scousers out there bad news kids this is not a rumour evertons new stadium is not going to be on valley rd in kirby but on kirby golf course half full of norweigan and cockney kopites yes thats right a shared stadium this is 100% true the person who told my boss stands to make millions of the land and is also tied in with peel holdings you heard it first a devastated blue nose slim
PLG has persuaded Zinadine Zidan to sign for Rangers on a player/coach role after France crash out of the world cup,especially if France fail to reach the later stages, Zidan will not be happy about leaving his playing career on such a low. He will not cost a lot in wages as he is keen to study coaching in Scotland under the help of his mentor and great family friend. Clement, Elmander and another 2-3 players will join up within the next 2 weeks as well. Ludovich Guilly is an option with the possibily of Scott Brown, Andy Webster, Paul Hartly, Darren Fletcher, or Owen Hargreeves joining up too. Expect more appearances from youth players such as Macormack and Adam. Nacho Novo Fernando Rickson and Gavin Rae will be given another season to prove themselves, but Fan Fan, Malcolm, Andrews and Klos will all leave.
Man City News

TORRES is definately going to man utd. ive got a mate who is friends with someone on the backroom staff for tunisia and this guy spoke to spain's kitman after their game the other day and was told by spain's kitman that Torres going to utd is a done deal, in the region of 25M. apparently he loves old trafford and wants to play there. he will not go to chelski because he doesnt like the club and he doesnt rate arsenal after their awful league form last season, he thinks they are a spent force and they didnt deserve to qualify for the champions league.
Clive Clarke will sign for Norwich this week and Carlos Edwards will sign within the next fortnight. Also watch this space for a suprise 'big name' signing.
ipswich town looking to sign chris birchall for 100.000 and hope the capture of him can persuade dwight yorke to come on a one year contact, ipswich also looking at clarke of west ham, holland of charlton and gaardsoe of west brom. Watch out for these names in the next year - owen garvan, shane supple, jamie peters and danny haynes!!!
With Michael Owen looking like he is out for 6 months and Shola being Newcastle's only striker now expect GR, to bid for Nicholas Anelka & Dirk Kuyt. Also look out for Tabelsi from Ajax available on a free and a cheeky bid for Owen hargreves after last nights performance duee to losing Lee Bowyer to Charlton.
Celtic FC squad for next season:
Torres lets slip that his preferred destination next year would be Arsenal. He wud love to play with his friends Reyes and Fabregas and form a leathal partnership with Henry. He wud also like to work under Arsene Wenger. AJ
You heard it here first,Torres agreed to come to MUFC,he is coming to sign on saturday,for a fee of 24,5million pounds,payable in three years time.SAF will sign Vierra for 6million pounds,Requelme for 18million,Kerlon for 5million.RVN is not leaving,Petit for 4million and a shoking signing of Kaizer Chiefs chief midfield maestro Tinashe Nengomasha(dubbed the next Makalele) as an understudy to vierra after Manu's tour to South Africa in July for 1million.
sorry all arsenal fans out there, im not really sure where you think all your money will come from to buy all these new players seeing that your new stadium has cost you a fortune... your best bet will to sign a few players from juventus, seeing that they owe you money still for viera... otherwise, your debts will stop any serious buying until next year at the earliest!!
australia's world cup broadcaster is SBS, and its main world cup commentater is none other then martin tyler. before spains match against tunisia, he mentioned that a massive rumour has swept the world cup regarding fernando torres. raul of madrid, aswell as puyol of barca both mentioned on spanish television that fernando torres has secretly been in negotiations with manchester united, and that he that he put pen to paper the previous evening.
im sick of all the pathetic rumours on here.... only rumours with credability should be posted....
and id like to think martin tyler is a credible source.
BIRMINGHAM CITY WILL COMPLETE MORE SIGNINGS OVER THE NXT FEW WEEKS TO FOLLOW THE CAPTURES OF CJ, KELLY AND NEIL DANNS. THEY ARE LIKELY 2 BE:
-DAVENPORT (TOTTENHAM) 1.5M
-IZALE MCLEOD (MK DONS) 3M TO REPLACE HESKEY ( WIGAN) FOR 5M
-BEN MAY (MILLWALL)2M
FINALLY PENNANT WON'T LEAVE AS HE VOWED 2 STAY AT BLUES DUE TO THE FAITH SHOWN BY BRUCE WEN HE WENT 2 PRISON. SO LIVERPOOL CAN FORGET IT AND THINK ABOUT SOMEONE ELSE 2 SIGN!
liverpool will sign bellamy for 6mil this friday. Other bids will be daniel alves from sevilla for 10mil. They will also try a 7mil bid for kuyt plus kromkamp. Zapater or nolan are likely to come in. Nolan however is a more passionate player as he's a liverpool fan since a child. Liverpool will defitnately scare teams in the CL with a Belamy and kuyt partnership.
Great news Arsenal fans arsene Wenger has finally asembled the perfect young team, the final pieces were fernando torres signed after spain vs. tunisia, Javier mascherano to also come in set to be completed any day now, Curtis davies to replace sol. And finally buffon to come in as juve owe Aresnal nearly 10million still and can't pay it back.
onto the Sitaution in Italy it has been leaked that Juve will be demoted 2 divisions and Milan will be demoted 1 with fiorentina and Lazio also having major fines so expect lots of players to leave unfortunately for most fans outside serie A as usual italians tend to stay in Serie A shown by the world cup squad so main beneficiaries will be palermo who will take a few of juves players and Inter to gain most, roma will also steal a few players, but as they are in major debt will still sell big time.sampdoria and Udinese will also be big beneficiaries.
Malbranque to man utd for 6 million,as back up
Arsenal have made an enquiry about javier saviola to be linked up with Maschereno. This possibly means that arsenal will loan out a few strikers probably Bendter and lupoli with bergkamp retiring and Saviola coming then Arsenal will have 6 strikers, two of which will be playing on the wings next season, so people who say aresnal already have 7 strikers need to get their facts right.
I think that Chelsea will not win the title for two simple reasons. The first of which is Chelseas style of play - no matter what people say they ARE a long ball team and secondly because they have too many players, although they have a rotation policy, not everyone will be happy. Having said that though - Money talks!
AFC will sign Buffon and Torres as the 2 big signings promised to Henry when he signed his new contract (as Rosicky had already signed). AW will also sign teenagers such as Fran Merida and Nuri Sahin aswell as long term targets Curtis Davis and Fernando Gago.
Man U will sign Tim Cahill and Frank Ribery. They will be used as long term replacements for Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs respectively. Man u will not sign Carrick from Spurs as they are as they demanding too much money. SAF will instead look to sign either Mascherano (if AW doesn't) or most likely Gattuso in a deal involving RVN.
Liverpool will not sign any big names such as Totti or David Villa simply because they do not have enough money and instead will look for cut price deals for players such as Aimar and Alves.
Chelski will sign a few more big names and expect them to bid for anyone any of the other 3 bid for quite simply because they can.
Watch this space, L+T
the reason saf should stay is because he is the greatest manager of the last 20 years and u obviously have a short memory as he has been a legend for us winning everything united guaranteed signings torres riquelme zokora cambiasso and possibly cannavaro thuram mascherano lennon fabianski
SWINDON NEWS. Chris Perry has been in contact with swindon, over a playing/coaching role.
Craig Bellamy and Papa Diouf are both meeting with Rick Parry and Rafael Benitez today. Craig Bellamy will accept what ever Rafa wants him to do as it is his dream to play for Liverpool. If Rafa wants him to be a goalkeeper, he'll jump at the chance. Papa Diouf, who is Marseille's chairman, will attempt to wrap up a belated move for Djibril Cisse in order to warn of Lyon when he regains fitness. The fee is thought to be around 6 million, or a loan move with an option to buy him for 8 million.
arsen wenger has been linked with aimar frm valencia as he is not wanted by the club. the deal could be worth around 8 million.
Arsenal will not sign Torres, instead they will sign Saviola.Every Player Manu is linked with you Arsenal sopporters seem you add it to you team,saying he's already signed. By the way,Torres will cost around 25-35 million and AW wont dream of paying so much for a stricker. Manu have had they 25 million bid accepted and will unveil him after the WC. Liverpool wont be signing Villa for 15 million cos he will cost much more than that neither will Cambiasso who will sign for Manu following Carrick.
Hearts are battling with Portsmouth and Watford for the signature of Portuguese striker Nuno Gomes. Also expect to see the arrival of Greek international Angelos Charisteas from Ajax on a years loan.
FERNANDO TORRES will reveal his lucrative move to Arsenal after the group stages. The fee is to be around 18-22 million which was agreed before the champions league final.
BUFFON will also be an Arsenal player along with maybe THURAM or CANNAVARO (depends on the juve situation) The fee for Thuram will be free, Cannavaro will be a couple of million and Buffon 8 million. However Juve owe Arsenal 10 million which will result in all transfers costing nothing.
One common story is the idea of RAFAEL VAN DER VAART joining for 6 million. SAVIOLA will not join as he wants to stay in spain neither will the overrated Ribery.
Cygan 1 million
Campbell 5 million
Aliardiere 2 million
Lauren 4 million

Scott Parker will be talking to SWP and Bridge to lower them into St.James's Park. And one more player is on GR list, Steed Malbranque.
LFC NEWS expect a fresh take over bid from steve morgan and the following players to come in Bellamy 6.5m dani alves 10m zapter 3-5.5m palleta 2m aurelio free gonzalez done and dusted and maybe depending on funds kuyt 10-12.5,m

Everton, Sheffield United and West Ham are all vying to sign Norwich and Wales midfielder Carl Robinson. The creative schemer does not want to spend another season playing in the Championship. A bid of £800'000 will secure his services, Sheffield United are favourites, especially as they may offer Geoff Horsfield in a player exchange deal.
Meanwhile, Forest and Wales midfielder Gary Holt, an ex-Canary, is mulling over a move to Celtic, whilst a current Canary, Darren Huckerby has, again, stated his future is at Carrow Road, despite interest from a number of clubs both at home and abroad.
Finally, promising young Norwich centre half Jason Shackell is being tracked by Watford; Adrian Boothroyd is familiar with Shackell and will make a bid towards the end of June; the Canaries, looking to raise money to finance a year long loan move for Arsenal's Pascal Cygan are looking for about £300'000 for Shackell who is not rated by Norwich boss Nigel Worthington who has apparantly also enquired about Matt Jackson at Wigan, an ex-Canary himself.
i think its strange that liverpool have been linked with torres every summer for the past 3 or 4 years, and yet this summer when it looks like he might actually leave no one is mentioning liverpool, even though we have a spanish manager and 3 players in the spanish squad. i don't think he'll sign, i just think its strange. bellamy will be a great signing when he signs, friday is my guess, as he wont throw away the chance to join a big club, especially the one he supported as a boy (unlike when most players say it, this is actually true as alot of people in wales support either liverpool or the manc scum and we had ian rush when he was growing up, who he says was his hero, and ian rush confirmed this himself on the liverpool website). hopefully we'll also sign another striker aswell as bellamy, villa might be wishful thinking but i hope it happens, if not maybe kuyt. expect alves to sign within the next week and dont rule out pennant at anfield, even tough everyone seems to have stopped believing that one. LFC
highly rated viarealle defender sorin has interested newly premiership side sheff u and other mid laegue teams like everton and middlesbrough to boast there european chances . (new middlesbourgh manager southgate is aiming high on his transfer list isnt he ). yaya toure is also on middlesbourghs list of transfers.
duff will join spurs for 8 million
David Moyes is being prepared to make a move for Alan Smith on a season long loan so the forward can regain his fitness with a view to a permanent deal. This is because S.A.F. cannot see Smith in his first team plans. With his transfers soon to be made in reinforcing his midfield to match the top 4 and a new striker.
Simao 2 LIverpool £11.5 mill
Chelsea not interested any more as they got ballack
i have links into the club and i belive pompey are on the brink 2 sing radoi and cambel for a fee of around 7 million each and they have already captured emana
you heard it first here
RUMOURS/FACTS: So Bellamy did have a clause in his contract, i didn't believe it at first but it's true, however, the welshman will sign for a fee just under 7 million not 6 million. good bit of business if you ask me but his temperment needs managing (in rafa we trust). Liverpool will now capture Kuyt for 11 million (fact not rumour) and Alves will NOT arrive (cost). Also, TORRES WILL NEVER JOIN ARSENAL OR MAN UTD, IN FACT HE WILL NEVER JOIN L'POOL OR THE PREMIERSHIP. I JUST CANT UNDERSTAND WHY ARSENAL AND MAN U FANS ARE CONVINCED HES GOING TO SIGN.Freddy the Frog Hopper
ARSENAL NEWSITS official Fernando TORRES will be joining arsenal for 25million the deal was done before the world cup it is a 3 year contract and he will be wearing the number 9 with reyes turning to number 10. Saviola will also be signing for 8.5 million this will leave enough money to complete the signing of Yaya Toure and Mexes to replace Campbell who is going to Newcastle. Eddie :)
Possible Arsenal Transfers:
Buffon, C.Davies, P.Mexes, Thuram, Yaya Toure, Gago, J.Mascherano, Menez, F.Torres, Saviola
Not all of the above but these are our targets. AJ

In recent months there have been a number of unsubstantiated reports on whom Sir Alex Ferguson desires to purchase and who he wishes to place on the market to acquire more funds. What you’re about to read is confidential plans for Manchester United set up by Sir Alex, David Gill and the Glazer Family. Firstly can I say that, Utd fans are going to be amazed by this report your about to read, like myself when I first read it.
The document stipulated that Manchester United will announce a Press Conference at 12.00pm on Friday 14th July 2006. Sir Alex will be present along with David Gill, Bryan & Joel Glazer. The Conference will be held for 45 minutes in this time David Gill will
Start off presenting the new home Shirt sponsored by American International Group (AIG), David Gill will then go in to detail about the design. Once this is over David Gill will hand over the Conference to Joel & Bryan Glazer, who will then turn to the press and in typical American Press Conference fashion (meaning over the top and having the shock factor) say ‘I would like you all to welcome the new members of the Manchester United family and out will walk the new players, to the shock of the press entering the room will be Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano, Esteban Cambiasso in the new Manchester United home shirt. David Gill will then say that they hope this will reassure the fans and that there summer spending is not yet over, David Gill will then go on to say that they have 3 to 4 more potential signing. Sir Alex will then go into detail about the transfers, contract lengths of each player and why they have signed each player. Fans who think that this is just a fan writing this report and what you have read and about to read below is very suspicious and strange behavior for Manchester United are wrong as this is what the Glazers are known for in America, the Glazer family are renowned for there strange approach towards the press and straight to the point, over the top conferences. The report I read also had some names of the other potential signing that David Gill stated earlier in the press conference, those names were Franck Ribery, Juan Roman Riquelme, Rafinha, Rafael van der Vaart, Joe Cole, Simao and Klass Jan Huntelaar. Now next to the player called Klass Jan Huntelaar, written was January 2007. so I can only presume that they are signing him in the January Transfer window. Then Sire Alex will let the press ask questions, once this is over Sir Alex will then go onto say that they have also signed Kerlon Souza from Cruzeiro Fc and that with them unable to acquire a work permit, Kerlon will go straight on loan to Racing Santander Fc for 2 seas
ons and that they have the promise of Racing Santander coach Juan Ramon Lopez Caro, that Kerlon will play at least 15 games in each season that he is there. Then nearer to the end of the press conference there will be more questions from the press and then Sir Alex will talk about the upcoming season, he will go onto to say that Ben Foster will be the new number two goal keeper and Gerard Pique and Guiseppe Rossi will be heading to West Brom on loan for a season.
Press Conference Over.
Arsenal to announce Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano, Fabrice Gago, Phillipe Mexes, Curtis Davies and Yaya Toure as there summer signings totalling £60 million. With S.Csmpbell, J.Aliadiere, P.Cygan and A.Lupoli all exiting the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal have already agreed a fee with atletico madrid for fernando torres and he will sign after the world cup, FACT!!!

everton will sign crotia right winger dario srna
Defoe to Newcastle £8.5M
Shepherd has met the Tottenham board today as he found out Owen is out for 5 months, they have agreed the fee and Defoe has agreed terms.
Man Utd News: Manchester united are in for the swoop for fernando torres who will join manchester united after the world cup for a fee of around 24.5 million... another playerd heavily bound to arrive at old trafford is javier masacherano though he may be priced away by real madrid who are also willng to get his signature... If that happens then manchester united will go in for carrick who they can swap silvestre for as he his highly rated by martin jol and it would cost around 12 million and silvestre in exchange... Riquelme is also wanted by sir alex ferguson but he will have to wait and see if he has enough funds available or else petit will be signed from benfica for a fee around 6 million... Kerlon is also united bound though manchester united will face stiff competition by barcelona to get his signature.
Tim Cahill will leave everton regardless of what he sed. Bellamy has been promising to stay all year yet he's leaving. Jermain defoe to be bought as Bellamys replacement. Come on Rovers!!!
u mite not have heared of him but i am best mates with david robertson of dundee utd an paul le guen has been in contact with him over a possable move 2 rangers f.c!!!
liverpool to sign aimer for 5m buy bellamy for 6m pennat for 3.5m baptista for 15m and torres for 10m selling cisse for 8m pongolle for 3m le tallic for 1.5m dudek for 1m traore for 2m and kirkland for 4m
NO MORE SPECULATION. I HAVE IT ON EXTREMELY RELIABLE AUTHORITY LFCS SUMMER SIGNINGS:
BELLAMY - BLACKBURN - 6m AND PONGO LOAN
KUYT - FEYENOORD - 10m
ALVES - SEVILLE - 9.75m
ZAPATER - ZARAGOZA - 4m
GONZALEZ - PERMIT GRANTED
AURELIO - VALENCIA - FREE
PALLETTA - BANFIELD - 2m
ZAPATER IS THE REPLACEMENT FOR HAMANN WHO LOOKS SET TO JOIN BOLTON. HOWEVER, ALVES WILL BE THE ONLY RIGHT WINGER TO BE SIGNED. IF HE GETS INJURED, GERRARD WILL FILL THE GAP ON THE RIGHT, WITH SISSOKO OR ZAPATER FILLING GERRARDS POSITION. IF GERRARD GETS INJURED WHILST ALVES IS, BELLAMY WILL BE PLAYED ON THE RIGHT WITH CROUCH AND KUYT UPRONT. DONTBE SURPRISED TO SEE A GOALKEEPER TO REPLACE DUDEK AS HE LOOKS CERTAIN TO LEAVE FOLLOWING HIS HOUSE BURGLARY. ALSO EXPECT A BID FOR CAMERONESI AND IBRAHIMOVIC IF JUVE GET DEMOTED
Everton big outs! tim cahill will join man utd after wc and by the end of july joseph yobo will be arsenal player.also a possiblity is that james beattie has become blackburns top target to replace craig bellamy.so everton could have 15-16 million to play with if these sales are comfirmed.
big african players on the move gyan asomoah ghana=tottenham sulley muntari ghana=man utd didier zokora ivory coast=totenham(replace man utd bound carrick) ya ya toure ivory coast=arsenal abdoulaye meite ivory coast=everton aruna dindane ivory coast=man utd hatem trabelsi tunisa=tottenham or man utd
hi there here is the latest transfer news:
gattuso and riquelme will not join man utd
torres and zokora will join arsenal in 20m and 9m deals respectively. curtis davies will join the gunners in a 8million move
phillip lahm wil jet in for a medical involving a 12.5 million switch from bayern 2 chelsea
daniel alves, pablo aimar and miroslav klose will join liverpool in 5m 6m and 9.5m deals respectively ( klose 2 old 2 attract big money deal ) these deals will come off and expect buffon, trezeguet, del piero, ibhimovic, thuram, emerson, camaronsi and vieira to all leave juve if they are relegated 2 serie b due to the betting scandal surrounding them. PETE
With the injury to Owen expect Newcastle to step up their interest in Dean Ashton at West Ham. Can't see any deal being done as West Ham reportedly will only accept a bid in excess of £20m, but Newcastle are looking to tempt them with £15m plus Luque.
This might be acceptable as it may help to fund deals for Saviola and Maxi Lopez from Barcelona. The Saviola deal being agreed and the Lopez deal on loan with option to buy.

Rafael Benitez is looking at squad players and with Cisse now going to Marseille with a view to an £8 million transfer next season, Benitez may be clear to get 2 strikers in. Craig Bellamy is almost a certain providing he completes his medical and he will be announced to the media on Friday or Monday. Benitez will also sign 1 of Dirk Kuyt, Klass Jan Huntelaar or David Villa.
The latter would cost £18 million although Benitez may be willing to balance the deal by sending Sanz Luis Garcia in part exchange to lower the deal to about £12 million as Garcia is highly rated in Spain. David Villa is his first choice although Dirk Kuyt is also wanted. If Villa comes, Garcia will go although if Kuyt comes Garcia wont go. Pongolle, Mellor and LeTallec are heading out whilst Fowler will be in his last year now.
Dani Alves will get his £9 million move to Liverpool as well.
Atletico Madrid have agreed a 20.4 million euro deal with AC Milan for Fernando Torres, although th e deal may be cut down if AC Milan decide to let Gilardino go the other way.
Also Milan have made an offer for Buffon and Thuram from Juventus if they go down which is 5 million euros and Christian Abbiatti.
Also reported in an Italian newspaper that Javier Saviola, who has been told he can leave Barcelona by Rikjard, is going to Inter in a 4 million deal.
But if Cambiasso has a good world cup with Argentina he could be leaving Inter to join Manchester United, who will also buy Carrick for 12 million.
Mascherano however, is not going to Manchester United as the media speculated and is leaving to join Arsenal in a 8 million deal.
Zakora is definitely going to Tottenham, who will use the money from the carrick deal to buy him from Saint Ettiene for 4 million euros. They will also buy another defender to strengthen that. According to numerous websites they have their eyes on Inter Milan's Burdisso and Bayern Munich's Lahm.
In Scotland since Hibernian have sold most of their key players they are going to get many players in. They are looking at Frawoski of Wolves and Poland to replace one of their strikers. Ex-player De La Cruz is set to sign from Aston Villa after he returns from the world cup with Ecuador and also they are looking to loan out Arsenal's young French startlet Flamini, who needs to gain experience. They are looking at many younger players coming up through the academy some players are, Alistair Taylor and David James,not the England goalkeeper.
Valencia CF to trade Stefano Fiore + Cash to Internazionale Milan for Nigerian Super-Striker Obafemi Martins. Other Valencia Ins to include Defensive Midfielder Alberto Zapater of Real Zaragoza, possibly Gabi of Atletico Madrid and possibly unsettled Diego Forlan of Villarreal. Now if we could just settle that Right Wing position. Look for a bid for JuanFran. Valencia CF outs to include Pablo Aimar, the afore mentioned Stefano Fiore, Bernardo Corradi who wants to go to Torino over England, and possibly Mista, David Navarro, and the unhappy Emiliano Moretti.

The person who said Paul Parry is to join West Ham for £1.5m is wrong as he will sign for Everton for £2.6m.
FACT- Nicky Butt has not rejected Sheffield United because there was never a bid in for him. He is not going to the Lane. He is more likely to go back to Birmingham than go to Bramall Lane. The Blades will sign Forsell, Kilgannon and Omer Golan
Also, Ryan Taylor of Wigan is not going anywhere as he is still on the comeback trail from a broken leg. He recieved this injury in his comeback match from a metatarsal injury. Wigan also see him as a player for the future and would only loan him out to get back to fitness.
Newcastle will sign Dirk Kuyt as replacement for Owen after the World Cup. They will also sign Malbranque and Obefami Martins of Inter.
barthez and his agent attempted to get a move to ibrox but were rebuffed by PLG last week.clement is looking a cert to sign as plg rates him very highly and he is deperate to move to ibrox.also Austria Vienna's Slovakian forward Filip Sebo could be on the cards for a move to glasgow.as far as sol campbell goes i truly hope he stays well away from ibrox not due to ability but the way the media is up here ,one slip up and he would end up having a breakdown.as far as ronaldo goes,i think a coach like plg is just what he needs to get him back on track i'd love to see him in the royal blue but i cant see it happening
With Owen out for at least the first half of the season Freddy Shepherd has stated that newcastle will be after two top strikers. The main target is still Dirk Kuyt with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink coming in as a stop gap to cover while Owen's out. Another striker will be wanted as Jimmy's 34 now and wont last more than a season, this will wait, however, until january at the earliest.
These two signings will be joined by a couple of defenders, one experienced centre back and a left back, and malbranque and possibly SWP on loan.
Torres is not going to arsenal because he is to expensive.expect yaya and mexes as the only two signings at arsenal this summer
