To Inter this Summer,
Ricardo Quaresma – £15 million + the rights of Pele
Lampard will sign next Summer on a free transfer
Adriano will not be leaving as he has already been promised a place in the team next year
The injury to captain Barry Ferguson has led to Walter Smith taking a long hard look at James McCarthy of Hamilton. He should be able to land him for no more than £1 million. Walter Smith is also keen about Dundee United Linchpin Gomis. If he can add these two players and a centre back then he beleives he can bring the title to it's rightful home.
Robbie Savage is not going to Hull. his family livein the midlands and he will be heading back to Leicester or Nottingham Forest.
Rumour has it that Smith and Barton will be joining Rangers, why they would? I have no clue Cueallar (spelling) and Boyd moving in the opposite direction.
To the person who says:
. gudjohnsen (5 million)
. a Ferdinand (5 million)
. shorey (4 mil)
. moutinho (11 million)
. Edmilson (free)
. bassong (free)
. insua (loan)
. seb larsson (4.5 million)
. Cuellar (3.5 million)
I will stop there haha, King Carlos to Newcastle for £3.5 million? you are aff your heed mate, I am a Rangers Fan and would shoot SDM if he let Cuellar leave for anything rather than 7–10 million, He was named in the Eurosport team of the year along with the likes of Messi, Ronaldo, Ferdinand and Casillas. I am the one who told you first about Lovenkrands and mentioned about SDM buying Gattuso's contract out, as the Steve Davis deal seems off (Until January) We will bring in Gerrano "Rino" Gattuso, as he has decided " not " to sign for Bayern Munich, with him now knowing that Milan are willing to sell him, Rangers are his best option as his wife wants to return to Scotland.
All together now, The Cry was.
Big Rumours for Man United fans
1. In spite of what Gill and Sir Alex are saying about Ronaldo, his days are numbered at Old Trafford. He will be sold to Real for at least £75 mil. no player from Real is coming in the opposite direction.
2. United will then move for Aguero and a cheeky £40 million bid will be enough to convince Atletico to sell.
3. Saha will be sold to any Premier League club for around £6 mil.
4. Manucho will take the role of Saha.
5. Because of the ongoing row between Levy and Sir Alex, Dimi will not join United. United will then turn their attention to Karim Benzema. expect another big bid for him. This time around £30 million.
6. By the end of August United will sign Chilean prodigy Alexis Sanchez for £15 million.
So spending= £ 40+ 30+ 15= £85 million. and earnings = £75+ 6= 81 million. believe me when I say. "the widow maker"
Liverpool ins: N'Gog CalVieri
Valencia need the money badly and also there are the Spanish lads at Lfc. Barry deal will fall through. Expect an enquiry for Maxi Rodriguez a long term target of Rafa If we do not get Silva. Keane to sighn very soon.
Liverpool outs: Carson, Guthrie, Crouch, Risse, Le Tallec, Kewell, Itandje. XABI WONT GO YEY.
Koki mizuno to Birmingham on a season long loan
scolari is very happy with the squad he has got as his disposal at the moment he feels he can win all with the depth n quality in the squad however he wd like to add these players
lw: Robinho or quresema
as he feel molouda is pretty good but these players are better than him
thus deal depends upon the Drogba deal as scolari fells that Drogba, Shev n Anelka are a very strong strike force along with Kalou n Robinho as back up
expected departures: benhiam, pizzaro, swp, ivanovic
sold: boularouz, makalele, Sidwell
this season chalsea is the team to watch
Marlon King was sited at Reading Football Club despite being in contract negotiations with another club
HAMMERS – Green to Arsenal and Robinson to the Hammers as part of a Ferdinand deal
To the total lunatic who thinks Rangers will sell Cuellar for £3.5 million you need to lay off the Glue. No way will he move for under £9 million, Besides he is happy at Rangers.
Davis Will sign from Fulham for £3.5 million + add ons, also I expect Smith to try and get Fletcher on loan to cover for Barry Ferguson who will not be fit for four months.
More Transfers will follow if Smith is able to shift Big Lazy Cousin and a few others
Leeds United have taken on trialist; argentine forward Luciano Becchio.
–Former Boca Juniors, FC Barcelona and Real Mallorca
–At his career prime of 24 years old
–Scored 28 league goals in last 50 outings in Spain
–Wants to sign permanently at Elland Road
My diagnosis. perfect strike partner for Jermaine Beckford, who ISNT leaving, so should he sign, whites MUST out–score everyone
Berbatov £24 million
Thats it – Neville back as RB with Brown, Ronaldo to stay. Tottenham dossier a smokescreen before selling after Man Utr return from tour.
Activity has been quiet recently, but here is some Scottish Premier League transfer news.
cousin (thank god)
venegoor of hesselink
also Hearts to sign jimmy flloyd hasselbaink
Robbie Nielson will sign for Ranger on Monday in a straight swap for Gow
Liverpool will open negotiations with Velencia this week for David Silva as a £10 million bid is about to be put in for the winger
remember where you heard it
Expect Liverpool's new no. 7 Robbie eane to be unveiled after the weekend after a 17.1 million deal has now been agreed.
Then in the next two weeks expect a formal offer for David Silva to be made.
Also within the next week or so the Gareth Barry saga will finally be sorted out which will involve: £15 million cash, Steve Finnan and a one year loan deal for Spanish youngster Francis Duran.
I have heard through a reliable source at the Hammers, that Curbishley is looking for a bit more creativity in midfield. The player he wants is Lucas Biglia from Anderlecht, a young Argentinian. He starred alongside Lionel Messi during the 2005 World Youth Championship. It's also thought that the Hammers may make a double offer for Anderlecht's left back Olivier Deschacht to add cover and competion to George McCartney. The fee is likely to be around £12 million.
Four signings will be announced by Celtic on their return from Portugal at the weekend.
first, the long running saga og Gabriel Tamas is all but complete, and he will jet in on Friday for medical.
Dominik Cervi has agreed terms and has been granted a work permit (due to his Italian heritage)
Michal Kadlec is in talks with Celtic and it's hoped the deal will be signed by early next week.
and finally Darren Fletcher is on route to Celtic for £5 million, Celtic want to announce this next week, but may need to wait until closer to the transfer window so that Man United have all their transfer dealings concluded.
Andy Johnson will be sold to Fulham by Friday for £11 million. Moyes will look to replace Johnson with Darren Bent or Michael Owen. Everton will confirm the transfer of Moutinho for £17.2 million within the next week. Joaquin and David Bentley are the last targets of David Moyes, one of them will be signed before the end of the transfer window.
Cuellar. £3.5 million. roflmmfao mate you are having a giraffe. Cuellar himself has stated he is very happy at Rangers and in Scotland, also that money is no object to him he would rather be happy. what would the big man want to move to Newcastle for. only move he will do is back home to a big Spanish club. fact. only a couple more signings on the blue side of Glasgow, loovens from Cardiff, Davis from Fulham and Mika Vayrynen from PSV. lovenkrands is a maybe but doubtfull. velicka top scorer in Scottish Premier League coming season follow follow
Norwich are to sign trialist makeise today or tomorrow after he impressed and scored during the Sweden tour. Lupoli is not joining as Roeder admited he's never heard of him. bell, Gow and two more forwards are to sign this week.
Wondered why all of a sudden Liverpool and Arsenal are making tracks to sign UK nationals?
It's the new ruling that will come into force in the Premiere league (then Europewide) with regards 6–5 rule. mark my words, why else would Liverpool be even entertaining signing the likes of Milner at £10 million, Stewart Downing for £12 million, Robbie Keane for anything up to £20 Mil and then there is Gareth Barry for £15 million (a player who three years ago nearly left Vlla for a clutch of clubs for £2.5 million) and Liverpool are also rumoured to be after Bentley at £18 million (a player sold by Arsenal for £2.7 million).
Arsenal have brought in Ramsey and are also interested in Barry. Green will arrive for between £5 million and £7.5 million, sneaky bid for Wright–Phillips, although Chelsea probably will not do business with the Arsenal if they can help it. Do not be surprised if they go back for Bentley making it a 3 way tug of love with Tottenham and Liverpool, (Mr Wenger would have had a buy back Clause when he sold, he is the man when it comes to transfers of young boys. )
Arsenal set to promote a couple of British youth players this year aswell.
Everton to sign 3 midfielders, a defender, a keeper and a forward by the time they go off on their US tour.
Those players are known well enough if youve been watching. Although Sean Davies could arrive at the club (5 years too late to be an impact player), for a cut price deal of £1.5 million, as Pompey have a fire sale on the go clearing the decks for a bid to bring in Sean Wright–Phillips. A player Everton are also interested in.
Newcastle have an exciting three weeks ahead aswell, although they do not seem to be going Brtish, but ex Premiere leaguers on their way back to the divison from Spain is the flavour of the day for them.
These UK based players are not worth that kind of money really though are they, otherwise we'd be balls deep at the World Cup and Euros. The football world has gone mad.
O'Neil does not want Milner as a wide player but a centre midfielder, to replace Barry. Milner is a attacking midfielder not a winger anyway as he does not have a great amount of pace but has a great engine and a good passer of the ball. This is why Keegan does not want to sell him but the board do, for no less than £10 million, so they can fund a move for a 'star'. Potentially N, Zogbia and Milner are the perfect CM players.
ShoutE your man in the showers
DIC will buy Liverpool as the stocks in the US have seriously dented H and G's purse. Money is availale for Rafa but he will wait as the price on many of the targets will drop rather than go up as transfer time goes by.
Ferguson is about to walk, no second in command, no loyalty from the Glazers as Ronaldo could go.
Shocking tranfer news from Villa Park, Sidwell has decided he does not want to stay in the midlands and has asked to be moved on. Martin O'Neill is furious but has reluctantly agreed to let him go if somebody matches the fee Villa paid. This is 100 percent true, my sister is a 'special friend' of Gabby. Also, a new midfielder will be signing from Spain this week, not sure who it is, but the fee is going to be over £25 million.
I have heard a rumour, from a decent source but it is still only a rumour, that Man United outcast Nani is on his way to Aston Villa for a fee that will smash the Midlands club's transfer fee. I have heard a whisper it is in the region of £17 million and Fergie is very keen to offload the troublesome winger. Nani is thought to be a bad influence on Anderson, who Fergie rates very highly and is said to be one of the reasons that Ronaldo is so keen to flee to Spain. Good signing for Villa is O'Neill can keep him under control.
Liverpool have just agreed a fee with Paris Saint Germain (PSG) to sign 19old David ngog the fee is about £1.5 million he is a young forward.
LFC facts watch Liverpool take the world by storm when DIC take over on the 4–8–08 when we get Barry–16 million+ Finnan, arshavin £17 million, abonglahor £13 million, rafinha £8 million. we will also get rid of the dead wood such as Carson 3.25 million to West Bromwich, Riise £4 million to roma, Pennant £5.5 million to Blackburn when (Bentley leaves 2 Tottenham), Alonso £12 million to Athletico Madrid (low price because we have first option on aguero), Leto £2 million olypiAkos, Crouch £11 million Pompey, Voronin Schalke £3 million. Watch us win the Premier League next year
Makelele has signed for Paris St. Germain and this means lamps will stay
MAN UNITED: If Berbatov is not signed (he will be as far as I know) then Ferguson will sign Eidur Gudjohnsen from FC Barcelona.
CHELSEA: Adriano is on the table for anyone who wants him, and has been offered as part of the Lampard deal. Scolari is only likely to consider the deal should Drogba leave the club, and even then it is very much a no go as the player does not want to come and Lampard will not request to leave.
ARSENAL: All this talk about Barry and Alonso is unfounded and both are not even on Wenger's radar. He has intimated that he will sign one more player, do not be surprised if he signs two, but neither will be household names.
LIVERPOOL: Benitez will conclude a deal for Barry soon. He will pay close to the asking price and Steve Finnan will indeed be included in the deal. Keane is a real sticking point as Tottenham are reluctant to sell, but Benitez will eventually get his way for the right price. This will signal the end of his signings for the Summer. Alonso will be sold if a bid of £13 million comes in.
Wenger to sign two new players:
No forward unless Adebayor goes, which is now very unlikely.
Barry will be brought in + Hoyte. And finally Zapata will come if Gallas goes to PSG. Fact. Just watch.
This is true.
Liverpool F. C
First Team In's
G. Barry (Deal will still go though)
and we will sign a forward from La Liga, not quite sure who.
first Team Out
Blackburn is trying to buy Greek defender Vasillis Torosides for a reported £6 million euros. Blackburn offered Greek powerhouse OlympiAkos £4 million a few weeks ago but the offer was rejected.
– – – – – Everton Summer Transfers
– – – – –
Everton look set to offer a huge £16 million for Moutinho. This £16 million will not be a one off payment. The transfer will cost £11 million upfront but will be subject to add–ons. The £11 million will be generated by the sale of Johnson.
Everton will then sign Manuel Fernandes. This will either be on loan or a permanent deal worth £6 million.
Moyes then wants a replacement forward. Two names in the question are Darren Bent and Millito.
Another two signings will then be brought in.
This will mean Everton will mount a serious challenge on the 'Top Four' and leave Liverpool only challenging for fourth place and not the title again.

Big Deal For Sunderland Fans.
My cousins husband who works at the training ground at Sunderland just told me that both Eider Gudjohnsen and Darren Bent will be showin round 2mora after bids have reportedly been accepted, £5 million for Eider and 13.5 million for Bent.
This is on top of signing Malbranque, Tainio, Chimbonda and Kaboul, which will go through £2 millionora if Kaboul can agree personal terms.
Behrami deal stretching out as he is waiting for a bigger team to come in for him. If he gets no offers he will sign for the Hammers. Chelsea will get krul from Newcastle, this will pave the way for Curbishley to sign Cudicini after Green's comments in the news last week. There will be one more big name signing which will be a forward, but there is a shortlist of a few names to fill that role. who it is I do not know, but it will happen. various youngsters will also join but they will all be for the future. looking for a 6/7 place finish next year. any lower then see you later curbishley.
The possibility of Yaya Toure at Arsenal is exciting. Strength and power alongside Fabregas. If Arsenal keep Adebayor and Wenger does bring in Silva, the Summers transfer would be great. We need strength and Silva offers added versitility and his performances with Cesc at Euro 2008 show how positive a move could be. I hope if Adebayor stays, he can progress from last season.
Celtic In – riqelme for around about £5 million + clauses on appearances, Bellamy £3 million, tamas expected to sign before the end of the week, Celtic are also on the Hunt 4 a young south American forward for £5 mill
I have contacts in and around Easter Road and also have family in Fathell Midlothian, near the Hibernian training ground. I can report a number of very real possibilities of Hibernian' activity in the transfer market.
Mixu and Rod have been busy but are keen not to take attention away from the upcoming FC Barcelona game or to scupper potential moves.
Fletcher to Celtic this week – cash + Killen + one year loan of O'Dea. Cash to be spent on wages for goalkeeper, with Herford's Samson and an–named Finn (not Niemi) both at the training ground yesterday.
Benjelloun and Zemmama to Birmingham – cash + a young midfielder, a winger in the build of Riordan. Riordan will not return to Hibernian.
Signing ahead of a Friday press conferences are Lovell, Yantorno and, surprisingly, Steven Pressley – as Rob Jones is a target for newly promoted Doncaster Rovers.
