Real Madrid have signed Angel Di Maria for £40 Million so any rumours of him playing else where are un true.

 

24 May 2010 22:44:39
Paul Lambert is ready to shake up the Norwich League One winning team by signing Michael Chopra and Darren Ambrose from their cash strapped clubs. Paul Lambert is good friends with Harry Redknapp and a loan move for Gio dos Santos has been agreed in principle. Chris Iwelumo is also on Lambert's shortlist.

If Fraser Forster isn't signed, Norwich will look to former Cardiff and Ipswich keeper Neil Alexander, who is now at Rangers.

Chris Martin maybe be sold if his value of 3 million is met which will provide even more to the hefty transfer kitty that Lambert has been assured.

24 May 2010 22:48:08
To the guy(The mighty newcastle fan) who said stoke play unattractive football. OUR team is better than yours, WE don't need Rory delap to stay up. And im pretty sure that a player like, O'hara, Kevin princeboateng etc. would rather come to stoke than a newcastle team with a minute transfer kitty and they'd rather come to a team who has finished mid table in the EPL in there first two seasons, being the second team in the EPL history to break the first season points barrier, anyway good look next season when we absolutely batter you at the brit :).

Rumours for stoke:

24 May 2010 22:35:37
Aberdeen news!

Rory McArdle has signed a precontract and will sign full terms the first week in July. Jamie Langfield is very close to completing a move to the Championship so it is likely the Dons will need a new keeper but no targets have been identified yet. Offers are on the table to Kevin Kyle, Mark Wilson, Barry Douglas, Steven Smith and Mark Kerr but none are expected to sign. Replacement for Kerr could be Marc Laird who has been offered a deal which he will consider once Millwall have finished their season. Veteran striker Michael Ricketts has been invited to join on a preseason tour of England tba which would be a trial. Two french guys also been mentioned but Ive never heard of them.

Any true man united rumours cos yesterday i saw david silva at old trafford discussin things with fergie , beckford to villa and aguero to united

 

24 May 2010 22:36:23
Big news from Villa Park. The Milner rumours are true, and he will be leaving this summer (which won't come as a surprise to many).

It probably won't also surprise many that Martin O'Neill will also be on his way.

What will surprise most is that Roy Hodgson has been contacted about replacing him. Randy Lerner recognizes the importance of maintaining Villa's profile as a predominately 'British' operation, and is willing to invest in Hodgson for both his emphasis on attacking football and contacts throughout Europe.

Hodgson is taking the offer seriously. There is a suggestion that, at 62, this might be his last big chance to challenge for the Premier League.

Just wait and see.

 

24 May 2010 22:26:42
Angel Di Maria to Man United for around £40 million
Jack Rodwell to Man United for about £20 million
David Silva to Man United for about £30 milion

Sebastion Frey to Arsenal for about £10 million
Yoann Gourcuff to Arsenal for around £20 million
Per Mertesacker to Arsenal for around £12 million

Yossi Benayoun to Chelsea for about £12 million
Sergio Aguero to Chelsea for about £40 million
Daniel Alves to Chelsea for around £30 million
James Milner to Chelsea for about £30 million

Certainly not all but just rumours heard out and about.

 

24 May 2010 22:28:07

To Newcastle fans who link the whole of the Premier to themselves, Mike Ashley and Chris Hughton have already stated NO money will be used to bolster the squad..Get it into your thick heads!

Onto other general rumours

Manchester City to have a mass clearout; including Santa Cruz (Aston Villa), Onouha (Sunderland), De Jong (Arsenal) and Ireland (Also Sunderland).

Manchester United will have another relatively quiet Summer, although expect bids for a few Valencia players (Mata and Banega), one major bid will be for Yoann Gourcuff after the World up.

Chelsea will, as already mentioned, make a cheeky bid for Kaka and a suprise move for Pedro Rodriguez of Barcelona. Ancelotti will be looking to offload aging stars: Ballack, Paulo Ferreira, Belleti and maybe Carvalho.

Any safc rumours

 

24 May 2010 19:51:11
NUFC fans?

I have some news on good authority, since I have spoken to a friend who has been in the board room recently:

Mike Ashley doesn't want to spend too much money, but will give £5m in transfer fees. He will allow loan deals (Wages) and any free players. He is also planning to install some form of wage cap of 25k for new arrivals.

With the £5m, Chris Hughton will target James Perch, Chris Gunter and Onuoha. Onuoha would be a replacement for Danny Simpson at right back with Simpson becoming cover while James Perch could be a vital utility man being reliable, not injury prone and being able to play across the back four and in midfield while Gunter would be one for the future.

The combined fee would be around 5 to 6 million with Ashley satisifed to make up a spare million or so. Hughton was earlier prepared to blow his entire budget on Jermaine Jenas but his agent told him off the record that he would not be interested. Hughton will also try to add Tom Cleverly and Jack Wilshere on season long loans

24 May 2010 19:48:18
The long running saga of the yanks who run Liverpool has finally come to an end. A deal was finalised at the weekend and the two Americans have agreed to it. Kirdi who is fronting the bid for a Saudi Billionaire will play a role in the running of the club. Also Andy Lynch will work in the commercial area. Will Rafa still be there? I don't know, however, there will be two jobs in Milan.

The most important thing for LFC fans is that the people that have brought disaster to your club have gone. When will it be confirmed? I have been told beginning of June.

Gary Hooper is set to sign for Celtic after being shown around the stadium and training complex if he is convinced by Neil Lennon he will be a regular first team player.Diomansy Kamara set to snub Celtic and go to PSG instead.

 

24 May 2010 19:39:05
Arsenal News!

Arsenal qill not sign any more strikers, we have VP Bendtner and now Chamakh, along with Eduardo and Vela. assuming at least one of them stays.

We will sign Cahill and Shaun Wright Philips( Wenger has decided he needs another English player or 2). Regardless of whether Fabregas leaves. Rosicky has barely played 90 mins all of last season, he always got subbed. Walcott still learning. SWP will be good cover.

New goalkeeper will be either Hart or Buffon.

Another new CB will be Metersacker.

Trust me.

Manchester United are targeting Inter Milan's Wesley Sneijder, he has apparently hinted to friends that now he has won everything with Inter he could be ready for a new challenge and England is his next preferred destination more accurately Manchester United according to Utrecht's local paper! Could this be that little gem that Fergie has up his sleeve?

Preston North End looking to sign Plymouth Argyle player Damien Johnson. I heard the fee was about £400k

 

24 May 2010 19:25:21
My friend works in marketing at Leeds. He doesn't know everything that goes on but gave me the following info from around the club, accepts some of it may be hearsay etc etc:

Hooper will not be joining (Leeds not offering enough wagewise) was pretty certain on this one

Sharp deal close (expect end of week). Donny fans wake up to reality, if he wants to progress in his career then he's not going to join a opt for a dead end club like yourselves. He wants the Premiership not the JPT.

Beckford to sign for Everton, deal done long before now.

Kisnorbo/Snodgrass OF COURSE staying at Elland Road. Not sure why it's even rumoured that either would leave, both supposedly amused by rumours of their departures.

Leeds chasing Sanchez Watt on a season loan, Wenger apparently not keen but Sanzhez much more so.

 

24 May 2010 19:02:39
There really is a lot of rubbish on this website. Im a Liverpool fan who doesn't at all think for one second were be buying players such as Higuain, Joe Cole, Mata, or even Turan.

Una qu broma: Just heard a rumour from a friend that steven gerrard will be going to real madrid after the world cup with players VDV and higuain in exchange, with some cash maybe also 'va la cogida usted mismo!'

LOAD OF RUBBISH SENOR! Higuain finished 2nd top scorer in la liga (1 behind Messi), he is 22 and seen as the future of Real Madrid. Why would Real sell him to a club playing in the Europa League next season AND £16m cash in exchange for the overrated Javier Mascherano? Do the Liverpool fans living in dreamland realise they are laughed at all around the world and not just in England?
Mourinho will not sell Higuain! Kaka looks as though he could be moved on to Chelsea to give Jose the extra funds he needs to land his top targets Tevez, Gerrard, Ashley Cole and Maicon. Such is his arrogance, that he will not be fazed by the whole Atletico/Real rivalry and also make a cheeky bid for Torres. Despite all his claims that he would never sign for Real, Torres knows that Madrid will be a major force under Mourinho. They are also one of the few clubs that could actually afford to broker the deal. A return to Spain would appeal to Torres, but will it be heart or head that determines whether he will be a Barca or Real player next season? Drenthe, van der Vaart, Lassana Diarra, Metzelder, Guti and Raul will all be sold/released.

!! Man Utd News !!

I have heard from a close source that man utd manager sir alex ferguson is considering bringing benfica pair Angel Di Maria and Oscar Cardozo to the theatre of dreams in the summer for a combined fee belived to be in the region of £45,000,000 £50,000,000. If anybody has any more information on this to let me no because I think this will happen in the summer before the world cup, and also that will be it in the summer if these 2 players make the big move to the OT. There might be a few young players brought in like. Haris Vuckic, Romelu Lukaku, Neymar, Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen and Sergio Canales, expect 1 or mayb even 2 off these to be brought in to help the reserves and also break into the 1st team.. I also heard that SAF is interested in Fotballs next star winner Ben Greenhalgh who is currently playing for inter milan and could be ready to make a bid for him. I am new to this site an always have good information on transfers. I will keep use posted on what i am hearing.

Arsenal fans get over it Fabregas has his bags packed and is on his way to Barca.I hate seeing great players leave the premiership i love watching them every week and il also be annoyed if Torres Gerrard Lampard Cole go to Spain or Italy or where ever the papers have them going.
On a brighter note for Arsenal fans i have heard some of the signings that could possible go through.
Wenger is touted to be going back to 442 as the 433 was for Cesc.He loved the freedom of it.
Sagna is Juve's top target this summer and the deal could involve Bufffon going the other way because according to Italian newspapers he want to play Champions league and Juve have a deal with Fiorentina for Frey.Arsene will lose Gallas Silvestre and Senderos on the free so wants 2 CBs.Micah Richards has become a top target because he can play RB and CB and Man City are willing to off load players. Cahill is the next target as AW see's him as a younger Sol Campbell and he does not need to worry about their prices going sky high because they arent in the England squad.To replace Fabregas will be David Silva apparently an 18million bid has been accepted in the advent that Fabregas leaves.If you also recall Wengers comment about players leaving Madrid (i.e Sneijder and Robben) he said he may just hang about Madrid and pick up what players they will allow to leave. VanDerVaat was his top target but with Jose coming he may not allow this to happen.If not then Chamakh's former team mate Gourcuff will go to Arsenal as he is annoyed that Blanc has left to become the French boss after the world cup.
So Sagna for Buffon
Cesc for 40 million Which will get AW Silva and either VDV or Gourcuff.
20 million of his 30 million budget will go to Richards and Cahill leaving the other 10 to be used in the increased wage bill.

 

24 May 2010 18:28:14
Billy Sharp HAS been in talks with Leeds, deal should be concluded by the end of the week. Leeds have also agreed a fee with Scthorpe for Gary Hooper who is due at Thorpe Arch shortly for talks.

Neill Collins is a done deal.

 

24 May 2010 18:36:58
Kyle Naughton will sign for Leeds United from Spurs on a season long loan, the deal will be confirmed once the former Sheffield United player gets back from his holiday, same goes for Montgomery.

Hooper won't be signing Scunny want too much for him and Ken Bates is reluctant to spend money on transfer fees, he's got to paint the East Stand and get rid of rogue rabbits at Thorp Arch.

Leeds also tried to sign Darren Ambrose from Palace but couldn't (wouldn't) match the 17k offered by QPR.

 

24 May 2010 18:38:25
Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is ready to offer striker Dimitar Berbatov as part of a £28mdeal for Wolfsburg forward Edin Dzeko.
They are also looking at Ben Arfa, Silva and VDV

 

24 May 2010 18:40:17
Celtic FC news

Expect Celtic to announce severe debt problems in the next few weeks. A dramatic reduction in support and playing staff is to be expected with the failure to recoup any champions league money (last 2 years) and the dwindling sponsorship deals in the SPL. Furthermore the addition of the management consistently changing and a severe reduction in season ticket sales has now almost brought the Glasgow giants to their knees. I also have it on good authority that a key Irish investor is looking to withdraw his interest and invest in one of either two RED clubs on the EPL.

Key players such as Boruc, Brown, Maloney and McGeady will be sold off to balance the books whilst young first division and lower tier SPL players will be drawn in to develop through the ranks.

Watch this space.

 

24 May 2010 18:43:41
Man City will tie up a deal with Milner after the Mexico game while the player is in England the fee is £18m & Santa Cruz. City also set to steal Pienaar this week also the fee is around £10m & Bellamy. Mancini is keen to tie up deals for players before the world cup so City are going to be very busy during the next 2 weeks or so.

ARSENAL TRANSFER NEWS

Ins:

Sebastien Frey £8M He has hinted that he is leaving Fiorentina and Arsenal are leading the race to sign him. Manchester United have ruled out a move for a GK, so it is between Arsenal and Juventus. Frey won't move to Juventus unless Buffon leaves, and he won't be going to Arsenal or United, so he may end up at City.

Per Mertesacker £14M He looks the most likely and the biggest bargain around. Chiellini would be better, but he is left footed and a right left foot partnership worked well with Vermaelen and Gallas. If Chiellini were to sign though it would be for £16M.

Yoann Gourcuff £18M/David Silva £17M They are likely to come, and with Fabregas leaving soon, maybe next summer, he would be keen to get either of these players before they get snapped up. This would mean we would sign either and then they would play with Fabregas next season, and after that Fabregas will get sold if Barcelona have the money. Ramsey would then replace Fabregas, and Wilshere will go out to the Wing.

Net Spend £22M £25M

Outs this summer:

Silvestre Free
Senderos Free
Gallas Free
Traore £4M
Almunia £3M
Rosicky £6M
Szcenscy Loan
Wilshere Loan
Vela Loan

 

24 May 2010 17:25:04
I'm sorry, did someone just say Leeds are to sign Chris Brunt from WBA?! It's not April Fools Day mate, Brunt is a first team player at a Premiership club, so why would he go to a side who WILL struggle in the Championship next season.

Onto some realistic news, WBA to sign Marc Wilson, James Beattie and Lee Grant.

 

24 May 2010 17:16:46
First off. People saying Vuckic is going to Man United or Chelsea. this is UNTRUE. hes staying at Newcastle and will be part of thier first team next year. Steven Taylor WILL pen a new 5 year contract in the next few weeks and will not be leaving as no one will meet his £12Million price tag Hughton has put on him. Now all these ( Duluded ) leeds fans saying Smith and Ameobi are going to them. Dont talk st. Smith has said he wants to end his career at Newcastle and is taking a £20,000 pay cut to sign a new long term deal this summer. Ameobi wants another chance at the prem and leeds are in the championship so obviously he won't be leaving. Nolan is going no where as he will be made vice captain with Steven Taylor made captain. Now for the REAL transfers

Austin £1million (Swindon Town )
Ebondo ( free done deal ) (French club )

Is Holmes a good player? I always knew he was highly rated but don't know too much about him now.

 

24 May 2010 17:14:05
It appears that German agent Tim Hager is trying to talk one of his major prospects, Sylvain Marveaux, out of a move to Chelsea in favour of moving to Germany – probably as a replacement for Toni Kroos who is returning to Bayern Munich after a very successful year on loan at Bayer Leverkusen. Marveaux is currently at Rennes who Chelsea maintain a good relationship with – primarily due to petr Cech. It makes no sense to me at all that Hagr would wish to do this – but a nifty little rumour in any case. Sharkey.

Portsmouth has sent an inquiry to the Bulgarian Chernomorets asking for the possibility for Branimir Kostadinov, the former striker of FC Hearts, to join them on loan througout the next season.

The 21 year old player has made an extraordinarily strong season in his homecountry, after leaving Scotland, scoring 16 goals in 26 games. Kostadinov is national player and a participant in the U19 European Championship two years ago. He is famous with his speed and his excellent finishing touch.

Portsmouth's interest towards the Bulgarian is not the first one.

"Recent examples of Israeli staff playing for Arab owners include Man City owned by United Arab Emirates businessman Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim whilst Tal Ben Haim was a player".

Tal Ben Haim was signed in July 2008. Al Fahim took over Man City in Sept. 2008. They couldn't do anything about Ben Haim because they didn't have enough time in the transfer window. As soon as the window opened in Jan 2009, Ben Haim was loaned out to Sunderland on 1st Feb. He was then sold to Portsmouth in Aug. 2009.
Mascherano was thrown in to the "Yossi to Chelsea" rumour just to hide the truth.

Angel Di Maria a main target for Man United at the moment as Sir Alex views him as the missing link in the team. So expect to see Angel Di Maria to Man United at around £35 million also as he is a massive Man United fan and has made clear his desire to make the move to Old Trafford.

Southampton fans, quick question.

I understand that you are very interested in Bristol Rovers midfielder Chris Lines and have spoken to him about a move.

I have heard whispers that Rovers wish for Lee Holmes to be part of any transfer, plus cash.

Have you guys heard anything about this and know whether this is true. One Saints fan posted on here that Rovers were signing Holmes for 150K, but I was told that it would be part of the Lines transfer.

Can anyone shed any light on this from your end? Thanks.

 

24 May 2010 16:08:54
Barcelona know full well that there is no legal or even moral obligation to be taken into account regarding Arsenal's exploiting the anomoly between Spanish and British employment laws that allowed them to offer Fabregas a full contract when they could not. They are simply playing the game in the negotiating of a deal where they want to turn fringe players into a ready made "fee".
Toure was originally the prime candidate, mainly due to the difficulties that the club has had with his agent rather than his value to the squad, but he does not want to leave. Do not expect Chgrynskiy to be undervalued as they invested 25m in him only last summer and see him a a long term CB partnership with Pique. Few players will leave Barca by choice and why would they and despite what we may think of the Permiership or Arsenal, few would actually find Arsenal an attractive propositon by comparison.
Barcelona and Fabregas have prepared the ground and will make their move after the WC, and word in Spain is that a cash fee of 5055m will probably be accepted.

"The process of bringing in new investment and reducing our current debt will create a context whereby we can seriously get back on track the stadium project" Comments made by Christian Purslow on January 13th 2010.


"The good news is that all potential investors are attracted to Liverpool by the prospect of building a new stadium and participating in the transformation in the value of the club associated with that project". Another Purslow comment February 2010.

"The stadium is absolutely central to the club's strategic development because with a new stadium comes a transformation in the financial resources of Liverpool that can be ploughed back into the core of our activity which is our playing squad".

Just a message to all Liverpool fans who are throwing rumours around about so called ins and out of our club this coming silly season. 22million pound has been spent on planning a stadium that Martin Broughton describes as "ready to go to tender". Isn't it a tad pathetic that a club of our stature and history is branding itself around a stadium that has been designed to satisfy them Cowboys at present. On this notion, bringing players in and selling players has nothing to do with the takeover situation at all. Torres, Gerrard, Mascherano and so forth are not going to hold their laurels on the limited budget that we will be dealing with this summer merely because the focus of the new owners seems to be on developing a new stadium. New ownership will change nothing on the short term and the prospectus that the club seems to be presenting focuses solely upon using the staduim as a smokescreen and a catalyst in order to sell the club meaning more money will be spent on design and planning etc. This is a rumour site and realism needs to be respected. Many words and numbers spring to mind on this point; Roman Abramovich, Chelsea, 41, 841. Are owners with a new stadium focus necessary? No!

In Jovanovic, Mata, Wilson, Shelvey, Hennessey, Banega.

Out Benayoun, Aurelio, Riera, Plessis, Spearing, Mascherano.

Liverpool takeover will be done within the next 14 days.preliminary talks started just under 3 weeks ago with , syrian yahya kirdi.
after positive talks he went back to the middle east and also to do work for a major worldwide charity.
the deal should have been done on may 18th but the current owners shopped around before this and found that kirdi's offer was by far the best offer for them.this led to kirdi questioning his own advances and gillet and hick's methods in dealing with it.
however on monday morning a deal was struck and the offer accepted, and lawyers are now drawing up the neccesary peperwork to make it official.
the talk of the stadium and hicks wanting his own crew doing the job are true but a compromise was reached early today.

IN REPLY TO:"This is to JAMES007 earlier, you posted that you had some interesting news about Abromavic, but you couldnt post it on the site.Y NOT??can you post it now?.or at least say were you heard about it
RAFA NO.8"

I shall post about it in detail soon.
With the new Arab owners wanting Yossi out, Yossi actually had the upper hand. LFC could have received £8M from a club in Russia but Yossi turned down a move. Liverpool then turned to West Ham. Avram Grant then spoke to Abramovich about the Arab/Yossi situation. Abramovich wants the Arabs to know that Yossi will move to a bigger club than LFC (his words, not mine) and not suffer due to their takeover. This is not Ancelotti's decision but he is OK about it. Liverpool agreed to Yossi's transfer in order to prevent it becoming a potential "stumbling block" in the takeover.
There is more to it about Abramovich but I can't talk about it at the moment.

Do not expect the new breed of owners to sell up on the cheap (i.e. H&G, Glazer, etc). They are in it for the long haul, waiting for the Premier League negotiated TV deal to eventually break up and the Spanish style returns from individual TV deals can be achieved. That is when the big returns really kick in, and yellow and green scarves and pointless prematch marches are hardly going to worry them when the big prize is just around the corner. My contact from one of the banks involved has confirmed that whilst buyers may have been in the wings, they are not willing to pay the major premium being demanded as the current owners know that time is on their side.

LEEDS UNITED NEWS

Good and bad news folks!

BAD news: Beckford is definitely off to either Blackpool or Everton; he just needs to choose between first team football or a higher wage. Snodgrass will NOT be going to Celtic; but WILL be leaving. The favourites are Notts Forest; but the deal is far from signed, and a few other Championship sides are after him. Howson is also attracting a few teams sniffing around him..

GOOD news: If Snodgrass goes to Forest, Grayson will end up with Joe Garner from Forest; not sure if it would be a permanent signing or loan. We are also very close to signing Billy Sharp and would have an amazing strikeforce! Boyd from Peterboro' is also being touted as a replacement for Snodgrass, but we face steep competition. Expect a bid for a young premiership GK as well!

Nathan Delfouneso could be heading out of Villa Park on a loan deal, either to newly promoted Blackpool or a Championship team (probably Norwich). This is dependent on the quantity of Villa's strikerforce for the next season, with the loan deal only going ahead if there are at least four strikers ahead of Delfouneso in the pecking order. Beckford and Zigic are being linked to join up with Heskey, Carew (assuming he doesn't leave) and Agbonlahor. Villa are also interested in signing Connor Wickham from Ipswich but see him as a long term prospect rather than a first team player for next season.

I would like to add to the comments of James 007 and Mr Broughton about the takover of LFC. I work at an unnamed bank and have heard that the bid has been agreed and the finer points are now being worked on. I am not in the team working on the deal nor in a sufficiently seperior position to know any details I'm afraid bit expect news within a fortnight. However, I have been led to believe that the club are not making any substantial moves in the tramsfer market until the takeover is concluded apart from trying to retain key players.

I can confirm that curently there are no firm offers for Liverpool football club although there are two interested parties they have been putoff by H&G asking price believed to be over £600million. Rumours about Yossi Benayoun leaving because of a potential arab takeover are misleading and unfounded there are jewish player/s playing under arab owners and arab players playing under israeli manager in the premier league recently with no problems.

 

24 May 2010 13:33:59
MUFC

Firstly, As I'm sure you are all aware Fergie has said Berba will not be leaving. So don't expect United to sign any strikers.
(Rooney, Berba, Owen, Diouf, Hernandez, Macheda, Welbeck)

Secondly, Fergie has also said that United will sign 1 player this summer, 2 at best. The dead cert signing this summer will be a winger. With Nani and Valencia we have two quality wingers, but both prefer the right. With the ageing Giggs looking like the only natural left winger left in the squad if Tosic is sold, expect a natural left winger to come in. One of Silva/Young/Ben Arfa/Di Maria.

As for anymore signings, only going to happen if Fergie can get a good price for Carrick/Ando, probably Carrick, and if so expect one of Gourcuff/Modric/Milner/Rodwell. Although I can see Rodwell coming next year.

Vidic/Evra won't leave this year, probable next year, with another young CB coming in to be understudy to Rio/Evans alongside Smalling.

Fully expect to see Akinfeev on a free in January.

out

Frazer Forster Norwich loan
Shola Ameobi Leeds
Nile Ranger Leeds/Ipswich loan

Ryan Donaldson loan to championship side

Meanwhile, there will be no windfall for Newcastle from any potential move from Aston Villa involving former United midfielder James Milner after the player's agent Mick McGuire confirmed there was no sellon clause included in the £12million deal which took him to Villa Park in August 2008.

 

24 May 2010 12:57:04
I have heard a rumour that United will be buying Vuckic from Newcastle for a small fee and will loan him back til January maybe even longer, Newcastle will get Macheda or Diouf for a season long loan! James (18) and Welbeck (19) will go out on loan to Preston and there is a host of clubs wanting to take United's cleverly on loan, he is only 20 and will have a great career at United! Other loan outs could include Oliver Gill (19), Corry Evans (19) and even Paul Pogba, Pogba is just 17 and is already good enough to play in the first team although Fergie will not want to rush his development, you will see him in Carling cup games for sure!

If you have been lucky enough to see him play for the academy and reserves you will appreciate how similar he is to Viera, Pogba will be a huge talent! He will be a first teamer by his 19th birthday!

United's youth coming through is nothing short of amazing, United have a bright future with or without loads of money! United are an attacking midfielder come second striker away from walking the league next season!

IN REPLY TO: "Sadly in this world of modern day celebrity etc, religion still plays a certain factor, and sadly Yossi being Jewish, feels he will be surplus to requirements when Arabic owners come in, hence the move to Chelsea.
Mr Broughton"

Not true. It has nothing to do with Yossi feeling he will be surplus to requirements. The new owners are looking at promoting LFC in the Middle East/Gulf region in a very big way. They feel that having Yossi at the club would be an obstacle in attracting new supporters in the region.
I have some interesting info on Abramovich but I can't post it at the moment. My fellow LFC supprters can celebrate now that the Yanks are out.

One of:

Gourcuff 17.520 million
Ozil 1520 million
David Silva 2530 million
Javi Martinez 30 million
Ander Herrera 15 million

Will replace Fabregas

Inter will strengthen to defend their CL crown next season, Owner Moratti will gift the team 3 new signings

Kolarov15 million
Toure/Veloso 20/15 million
Aguero/Cavani 3540/25 million

Real Madrid will look to spend again with Mourinho in charge

Dzeko 40 million
Gerrard 2530 million
Javi Martinez 30 million
Ashley Cole/Patrice Evra/Kolarov/Vargas 25/30/15/20 million

Gerrard Deal will be met with some resistance but it will all depend on the player's desire which is yet to be determined, Cole would be interested in a linkup with Mourinho but Chelsea will want top dollar as for Man Utd and Evra it will near impossible as Freguson will not want to lose one of their best players. Kolarov to be at the head of twoway tugof war between Inter and Madrid. Raul, Guti and Drenthe to be shipped out. Mourinho is a big fan of Van Der Vaart and will want him to stay but Gago and Granero could leave.

 

24 May 2010 12:37:25
James 007, you are correct on two frontsbut as usual the devil is in the detail..
First off the date for the takeover I've been told ranges on from 4/5 days to maybe two weeks at least, sadly this is standard procedure, after the completion of due diligence the parties involved awiat for the deal to be ratified etc, and considering that they are happy with the deal they will then proceed to kick the muppets out.

Sadly though their is some issue with the proposed stadium, hicks is basically insisting that the new stadium be built with the contractors he initially consulted, which coincidentally he has a vested interest in.but the other party involved is none to happy that he will be trying to milk more money of them..so watch this one unfold.

Sadly in this world of modern day celebrity etc, religion still plays a certain factor, and sadly yossi being Jewish, feels he will be surplus to requirements when Arabic owners come in, hence the move to Chelsea.
It's sad to see this involved in football but the truth is yossi, is a deeply religious man, and he put his faith first and foremost and didn't want to make it an issue.so in all fairness kudos to him, great footballer and an even better gentleman for avoiding conflict.

Sadly James I am sticking my neck out, but my contacts are adament that shiek Mohammed is still in the hunt, although qia are pushing I'm genuinely at a loss at the momment to say which way it is goingso please James feel free to share your info.

And by the way James, I apologize if you feel I was being sarcastic when I called you friend, I wasn't. I was genuinely meaningful in my respect to you for posting like me what you hear, again my aplogies.

Not sure what is in the water in Newcastle but Delap to go to a team that will do wonders to stay up shows that they still live in desperate hope. Sunderland maybe but why would a player at a club with no debts, improving every season etc even consider going to a side who think that crowds win games. You will do well to come 17th. Delap has just pledged his future to Stoke get your facts right. CCC players about Newcastle' s limit these days.

A few outs at Stoke but in the real world the only ones that the Geordies could attract are the unwanted reserves.

MOURINHO will make LB his main priority this summer. His two targets are Ashley COLE and Patrice EVRA. Cole is more likely and has a history with Mourinho, he is also willing to move to Spain to escape the breakdown of his marriage. He knows that he cannot speak to another woman in this country now without the media speculating on his motives. Whilst Evra will be the costlier option, Utd would find it hard to turn down a substantial bid due to their financial predicament. The deal would only be on however, should Evra push for it. Ferguson will dig his heels in, loathe to lose another player to the Bernabeu in successive seasons.

Liverpool fans can forget the deluded rumours that Higuain and a chunk of cash will broker a deal for Mascherano. Madrid are not interested in Mascherano and the player will stay at Anfield. Mourinho will however push for a deal for Steven Gerrard, who seems eager to extend his injury plagued career by playing his last few seasons in the Madrid sunshine. Higuain will not be sold. Mourinho will target a forward in January should Benzema and Higuain be failing, but both will be given the chance to prove their worth before a decision is made either way.

Maicon and Sneijder will both be on the radar. Sneijder could be an embarrassing affair however as Madrid only sold the player last summer to Inter for £13m having bought him from Ajax for £18m 2 yrs earlier. It would take a good £25m to lure him back.

Guti, Raul, Metzelder, van der Vaart all out and should Chelsea agree a fee, Kaka could well be on his way as part of the deal for Ashley Cole. Ricardo Carvalho will also join as a squad player.

Lfc eyeing up mata and forward zigic of valencia in cash + riera deal

 

24 May 2010 11:03:47
Jose to take over at madrid before the world cup. His main concern is the madrid back line. Maicon will be brought for £25m with Maicon playing right back and Ramos moving into the center with Pepe. Aly ciccoko will be brought in for 9m+Drenth. The right winger Jose wants is non other than Joe Cole who will come in on a free. Macherano will come in for 5m+Higuain+VDV. Di Maria is a done deal and will cost £30m. Finally, the striker that will broght will be Drogba for £25m. Kaka will be sold to chelsea for £40m

ARSENAL
The rumours amuse me, firstly Arsenal will not sign Yaya Toure as Wenger has had opportunities to sign him & never has. Similarly, Wenger will not resign Upson, who had a poor season at West Ham. I expect a goalkeeper, a centre back or two & a replacement for Fabregas to be signed. As is Wenger's normal policy, these will be players with a long term future. So expect a goalkeeper, such as Hart or Lloris, A tall centre back such as Per Mertesacker & a Midfield player such as Yoann Gourcuff. My own choices would be Neuer, Chellini, Mertesacker & Melo.
READING
Have received interest from Blackpool & are keen to unload him, as he has high wages & doesn't give enough to the team.

 

24 May 2010 10:10:32

24 May 2010 10:30:36
Could people stop saying that Liverpool will use money from dossena/vorinon deals because it was all used to pay off some debt. Onto the rumours, gerrard, torres and mascherano are going nowhere, we all no something is happening behind the scenes with the takeover and our main players like reina will commit to the club. Rafa can only spend what he makes in sales until the take over is done but no idea wen this will be so expect free's and some more young talent.

Aston Villa negotiating with Valencia over Nikola Zigic and Miguel. Carew is leaving club or maybe already left.

 

24 May 2010 09:50:29
Gerrard n Torres are staying at Liverpool Next season. The only big player sale will be Masch due to the well publicised family problems. This will be for £3035 mill depending on whether Jose really wants him at Real. The talk of De Rossi is a smokescreen to try and lower Masch's valuation, similar to what they tried with Alonso.

Albert, Degen, Cavalieri, El Zhar, Aurielio, Yossi, Spearing and Darby are all potential outs. El Zhar, Spearing and Darby may be kept for home grown status, while Yossi may be trying to architecht a move due to lack of starts. Expect this to bring in around £20 mill (total for all 8 as some will be frees) and free up alot of cash for wages.

Lucas to take up Masch role with Banega £9 mill coming in to Alonso role. Aquilani will stay unless £15 mill offer made. Is so, expect a bid for VDV £1012 Mill and or Milner £24 Mill.

This gives Rafa a max of £43 mill to play with for LB, RW and striker. Kolarov could come in for £10 mill, wrightphillips for £8 mill/ Ireland £10 mill, leaving Rafa between £2325 mill for a striker. This could be Carlton Cole for around £12 mill leaving the option to bring in Micah Richards as backup right back/CB for £10.

£23 mill for Hennesy as back up.

The club has already spent £6 mill on youth this summer. The future looks bright, the future is Liverpool.

Liverpool have tied up deals for Juan Mata and Ever Banega. The deal involves 22m plus Albert Riera. Mata will occupy the left and Ever will control the game with Aquilani. Joe Cole has also signed for Liverpool, the deal will be announced after the World Cup. Milan Jovanovic will be announced next Thursday, before Serbia go to the World Cup.

Rafael Benitez is going to take a gamble on a volatile chubby Brazilian who could be bad for team morale and the dressing room but on the other hand could also be a great signing , Roma have offered Adriano a contract but apparently he does not want to return to Italy and he has not signed a new contract in Brazil so he will be a free agent by the end of the month , Arsene Wenger is also weighing up whether or not to try and land the striker.

24 May 2010 08:47:24
Kaka may be gracing the premier league next year as Mourinho is willing to offer Chelsea the man they missed out on last summer in exchange for Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard, Chelsea are looking at also signing Aleksandar Kolarov, Yaya Toure, and Yossi Benayoun.I'm sure Chelsea fans would love to see Kaka playing at Stamford Bridge but at the expense of probably the best left back in the world and a 20 goal a season attacking player I don't think so , I can't really see this happening however if Lampard and Cole want to join Jose in Spain then maybe it would be better for Chelsea than taking cash.

 

24 May 2010 08:52:23

Poor Chelsea and Man City. They have the money but not too many players want to play for them. Milos Krasic, David Silva, Neven Subotic, Steve Mandanda, Luis Fabiano, Luis Suarez and more have issued comeandget me plea's to SAF. It's the same with Liverpool and Arsenal. Unfortunately these clubs don't have the money to buy all of them.

Some interesting rumours going around this morning apparently Birmingham have given up their chase for Carlton Cole as they are not willing to pay anymore than £10million and have now offered Valencia £6million for 6ft7 front man Nikola Zigic also Liverpool are apparently looking to bring John Arne Riise back to Anfield and are hoping to land him for around £5million, Steven Piennar who has been linked with Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal in recent weeks has rejected a new contract while Jack Rodwell agrees a new 5 year deal ending speculation he might end up at United or Chelsea by the end of the Summer, it looks like Luca Toni will be playing for West Ham next year, Chelsea are set to offer Michael Ballack a new 2 year deal and have made a bid for Yossi Benayoun which indicates they have accepted Joe Cole will not be back next season but where will he go is the question, he can pick basically anywhere in England with Tottenham, Arsenal, West Ham, Liverpool and both Manchester Clubs are all chasing his signature, looks like James Milner wants to stay at Villa Park for some reason and Man City are lining up a bid for what it appears is their second choice in Juventus midfielder Diego, Mourinho is planning on making a £40million Roma raid for midfielder Daniele De Rossi and a£20million bid for Chelsea full back Ashley Cole when he takes the reigns at the Bernabau, Arsene Wenger is looking to sign Steven Taylor to replace outgoing William Gallas , Barcelona are still chasing Fabregas but a deal is looking increasingly unlikely as the valuations are so different and neither side seem to be budging , Barca value Cesc at a mere £30million where Arsenal value him at close to double that figure , Barca are going to turn their attention to Javi Martinez should they fail in their pursuit of Fabregas and finally Tottenham are winning the race to sign Arda Turan , thats a lot of transfer rumours for one day half of it probably isn't true because the amount of different players being linked with different clubs these days is ridiculous just try and see the believable ones and I suppose its whatever sells the papers.

Birmingham have bid £6m for Nikola Zigic of Valencia!

 

24 May 2010 08:32:30
Yossi's quote.'Ancelotti wants me for next season and now everything depends on Liverpool. Chelsea will have to pay some £6m but I believe that in the end I'll be moving there.'

 

24 May 2010 08:40:02
Arsenal have put a £12m bid in for Hangelaand with Fulham expected to agree £15m. Wenger has always liked him, now has European experience and player wants the move.

Wenger has also kept an eye on the Oneoha situation and may take him for £34m. He's English, young but PL experienced and tall good backup along with Djourou who is always injured.

If these happen, Campbell will go to Celtic as he doesn't want to be 5th choice in last year of career, with reserve players promoted if necessary.

If Fabregas leaves, expect Melo and Hazard, with Jack Wilshere featuring more.

If a goalkeeper is bought, Almunia (unless he's happy being no' 2) and Fabianski will leave, with Mannone and Schezny (quality young GK on loan last season) being promoted to 2 and 3.

'To the bloke who wanted to know something about stoke middle table united.

Delap to go to newcastle for 3 million

then stoke to go down! new season!'

Delap has recently signed a new contract and Newcastle 'relegation' Utd hardly a tempting place to play :) I see the Geordies are still deluded that they are a good side.


Beattie is not going to Barnsley get a grip. Birmingham and West Brom are welcome to him as he looks for the best deal from either.

Carlton Cole will join Stoke if West Ham lower the ridiculous price.

 

24 May 2010 01:28:36
For all you Man City fans :

The likes of Robinho, Jo, Valeri Bojinov and Benjani could all depart this summer although it is not like City need the revenue. Expect a potentially lengthy negotiation battle with Villa over Milner, with the midfielder's current club reluctant to sell to a rival. Hamburg's Jerome Boateng looks a likely arrival and would help to address the aforementioned defensive issues. Inevitably, City will be linked with a move for a striker, with Inter Milan's Mario Balotelli an unsettled customer at the Serie A champions.

 

24 May 2010 01:02:31
I have just heard that the red knights have recieved positive news on their bid to buy out the Glazers. I don't have details in what the development is yet, but my best guess is that the Glazers have set a fee which they would be willing to sell for. If this is the case then i would expect negotians over the next few days but a possible deal could be done sooner rather than later if this is the case.

I'll hope to bring you man.utd fans some more news on this story if i can get any, as i said the details are a bit sketchy and the words used were "The red knights have recieved positive news"

I'll update if i can find out any more details.

100% true Liverpool have accepted a bid of £6.5million from Chelsea for 29 year old playmaker Yossi Benayoun, Chelsea are also said to be weighing up a £20million bid for Javier Mascherano however Liverpool have said they will not sell the midfielder and he has said he wants to move to Spain so if he does move on I don't think he will want to move to Stamford Bridge.Albert Riera is also expected to wrap up another £6.5million deal this time to Stuttgart later this week.Juventus have made a second bid for Alberto Aquilani and things are looking a little strange down at Anfield at the moment, it looks like there is going to be a lot of players out but Rafa has reiterated his desire to keep the spine of the team but would Aquilani not fall into that bracket, Rafa is apparently willing to let him go and is lining up Stephen Ireland as a replacement, Fabio Aurelio is leaving on a bosman and a number of other players futures are up in the air so we will just have to wait and see what happens hopefully investment comes in soon so Rafa can get some of his top targets like Mata, Kolarov and Milner but I can't see these players coming in without investment.

get real mate, i'm a Celtic fan but there is no way Arsenal would sign McGeady, he'll goto someone like birmingham, they are said to have bid £8M in the last window and an offer of anything like that again would be accepted. I like the guy but he has no end product, he can dance past players ofr fun but doesn't have a killer final ball.

Heard the same info about Trapatoni coming in as a director of football role, Dermond Desmond already pays his wages for the ROI.

 

24 May 2010 00:29:53
Not sure if this will get posted but I have bad news for all Liverpool supposters who thinks they will get any Madrid players. When Mourinho takes over at Madrid he will not be doing any business with Rafa at Liverpool. so we can forget any players from Real Madrid. Which is a shame. Vdv and Higuain would have been good signings. The only way we would do business is with a swap for Gerrard. as for me I would like us to sign Joe Cole and Dzeko, kjaer, these will be highly unlikely though.

Celtic Rumours

Lennon will be in charge of the Celtic first team next season, not sure what his title will be though. Mowbray & grant are currently still on garden leave and havent been sacked by the club, this has been confirmed today by the LMA. It seems that celtic & mowbray/grant can't agree a settlement deal, this would explain why Lennon hanst been offically named as manager.
Mowbray & grant will either need to agree to a smaller settlement fee or sit out of football next season.
Lennon is currently involve on a supporters Q&A tours with Peter Lawell, these is no way this would happen if he wasnt going to be involved next year.

Players rumoured to be incoming targets are:

Stokes Hibs
S. Reid Free
Hooper Scthorpe
M.Wilson Pompy
Landry looked to be staying after his loan deal, Lennon has said he would love to get Keane although i don't think Keane would fancy moving to the SPL for anything other than a short term loan.

Celtic would be happy to sell most of the current squad for any decent offer although only S Brown & Mcgeady have any decent value

Rangers rumours

rangers are supposed to have given ellis 7 days to make his takeover bid, however with the investigation by the tax office still ongoing its difficult to see anyone buying rangers without knowing if they are going to get hit with the rumoured £20M tax bill.
walter smith ( yes he does actually have a surname) is expected to walk away and mccoist will take over, he will have around £5M to use for new players and to offer new deals to all the players out of contract, nacho" i also said no to rangers) novo has turned down a new deal at ibrox and went back to spain, boyd is expected to leave with several offiers on the table for england & turkey, he has said he will decide whilst on holiday over the next 2 weeks.
James McAurthur from Accies won't be joining rangers as he will get about £15K a week at wigan.

Other SPL

Dont expect to see much cash gettign spent by the other SPL clubs as none of them have any money. Hibs & Dundee Utd will spend a little however most clubs are cutting costs so only loan deals or frees transfers will happen

Blackpool will be a great place for top club loans as it negates the onward wage bill should they go straight back down.

Who ever said caldwell from burnley to blackpool for 2.5 million, is a load of rubbish, he has been released same as beckford.
TRANSFERS:

Bothroyd, Chopra, Whittingham, Ledley all set to leave as didn't make it to PL.

Barnsley to sign either, ben sahar, danny goodwillie, colin nish or derek riordan.

Also Barnsley looking to get james beattie on loan from stoke, plus colace could be swapped for becchio.
