Football Rumours Archive November 24 2006
Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Anyone thinking that a new board will result in wholesale changes at West Ham are wrong. Following the upheaval so far this season Alan Pardew is keen to bring in a genuine right winger. His first choice will be Shaun Wright Philips. SWP is keen on the deal as he would not have to move and West Ham come recommended by his dad. Chelsea would also be keen as they do not see West Ham as a direct threat.
Nigel Reo Coker will move to either Arsenal or Man Utd for an inflated fee. Yossi Benayoun will take over the central role and the captains armband.
No other players will be bought in January unless Tevez and Mascherano leave, which is unlikely. Alan Pardew is keen to settle the team back down for rest of the season, ensure safety and look to restructure in the summer._____________________________________________________________________________
i am a manyoo fan and i would like to share my rumours to all this site visitors. i would like to share transfer rumours of manyoo and the possibilities of this transfer happened this jan transfer window or next summer.
firstly, SAF wants to sign RB to backup injury neville.SAF target is:
1-rafinha:very good and young RB.play for Schalke and first choice RB there.only 19 years old but is a very attack minded RB.might be good replacement but the question is will he be good enough to play in the Premiership?
Value: around 7mil
2-castro:like rafinha, he is young and good defender with rough tackle style.play for leverkusen and is spanish under 21 RB but he is prefer to join
liverpool or arsenal
Value: around 2mil
3-zabaleta:the argentine is 21 years old who play RB or RM.Currently play as RB at espanyol and he play part in friendly match between Brazil and Argentina at Emirates before this but the risk of buying him is the argentine is always failed to proved in England like Veron,Mascherano and Tevez but maybe he can be successful like Heinze.Who knows???
Value: around 5mil
SAF also wants to sign a midfielder. The target is:
1-Hargreaves:He is actually no 1 manyoo target. He wants to join Manyoo but Bayern block the transfer before. His hardworking playing style will only boost manyoo midfield and SAF will do everything to sign him. Maybe hard to sign him because Bayern want him to stay.
Value: around 15 mil
2-Reo-coker:like Hargreaves, he is combative box to box midfielder. He wants to moved but blocked by Pardew. The good alternative if SAF failed with Hargreves and manyoo facing Arsenal to get his signature.
Value: around 10 mil
the long term replacement of Scholes is also considered:
1-Van Der Vaart: very creative midfielder with killer pass and powerful shot towards the goal. the Hamburg captain is manyoo target before moving to Hamburg. He looks like a good replacement for scholes but he won't come cheap and also manyoo will face competition from other clubs in Europe.
Value: 15 mil
2-Sneidjer: the former van der vaart teammates is a target of AC Milan and good midfielder. He is good alternative for scholes and also seeking a move away from Amsterdam Arena.
Value: 10 mil
3-Kerlon:regarded as the new Ronaldinho and plays for Cruzeiro in Brazil.the skillful attacking midfielder is only 18 and manyoo plans to buy him and then loan him to either Osasuna or Sporting Lisbon to gain experience and work permit
the left winger is also being search
1-nani:the portugese is ronaldo close friend.he is also skillful and speedy winger like ronaldo and can play right or left.the good relationship between Sporting and manyoo will ease the transfer.
2-vicente: he is a manyoo target last season and he is likely to move away from mestalla to gain place in Spain national team towards the Euro 08.the wing wizard is also lost his place at Valencia to David Silva and Gavilan and will considered move to England.Good replacement to Giggsy.
finally a striker.
1-torres:very good and young striker.he is seeking a move to England because dosn't want to play other club than his current club, Atletico.the reduce of value in his contract means that atletico is ready to sold him.SAF is admirer of him and he will be a good partner to Rooney.
2-HUntelaar:the hunter is a target of many Europe top club.the goal machine is only 23 and will remind manyoo fans of van the man.he is more cheap than torres but Ajax has declared to keep him for a long time.
possibilities:50-50Tevez and Mascherano will NOT leave in january!
under fifa laws if they leave for another club they are unable to play for that club until the beginning of next season. .and i do not see these two players leaving to spend 6-8 months sitting at home!
west ham will bid for SWP on a loan basis to begin with and then it could become permanant in summer!
they wil also make a bid Keiran Richardson and talented left back Zonneveld which cud spell the end of konchesky west ham career!
R-e!e#ceTo the Celtic fans who think Chris Burke will either sign a pre contract or go straight to celtic,you need therapy.
He won't be stupid enough to do that whether he's a Celtic fan or not.
Brown to Rangers as he is a bluenose and rangers are the only club to enquire about him.
Kaboul to rangers and a big centre half from Young boys of Berne.
Also Alan Smith (another bluenose)on loan from Man U as Bardsley heading back but Martin is staying.
Naismith from Killie who has interested Arsenal,another possiblity.
Ricksen,J Rod and Novo sold to highest bidder.
Possible £2.5 the lot,maybe less.
PLG has approx £4m plus incomings to spend.
Andy Webster another possibilty in January.The mighty Spurs will sign Jeremy Rothen in Jan to strenghten ther bid to climb the league and to succeed in europe. also expet a surprise bid for Quaresma 2 solve our left sided problems or msloney from Celtic for a fee of around £500,000. u heard it here first! oh and Sheff U will take Davenport and gardner off our hands and we will sign C.Davies 4 £7 MillionAll this torres to chelsea talk is absolute rubbish, get a grip chelsea fans, you already have two top class strikers, torres will go to man utd in jan or the summer, also if robben continues to get dropped from the first team it is possible he could move to old trafford or real madrid. Man utd will sign freddy adu in june and will also get nani and hargreaves in the near futureWith Milan Mandaric buying Leicester City and making £20million available straight away to spend in the transfer market, City are expected to raid Portsmouth for striker Svetoslav Todorov and to entice Sheffield United midfielder Michael Tonge to The Walkers Stadium. Milan has set his sights on the Champions League eventually for the ambitious East Midlands Club.To all the Celtic fans who think cos they are through to the last 16, anyone will sign for them. Get real. naismith and Brown are Rangers fans and have both publicly stated this and so if we wants them, we will get them. .Celtic to sign Bellamy? ok as he was such a star when he was here.
Hibs to sign Thompson and Balde
Rangers to sign Naismith in jan and Brown in Summer-Manchester United rumours-
SAF will not be bringing Kaka or Riquelme to Old Trafford in the near or distant future. Riquelme is a good player in Spain but he is lazy on the pitch. Also Kaka would command a fee of £50million+ to aqquire his services. Reo-Coker is a real possibility as is the signing of Torres. Reo-Coker has proved himself in the Premiership and SAF is a long time admirer of Torres. However the SAF is reluctant to pay the minimum realease clause of £25million. What with Veron being such a flop and costing so much. If United win the premiership then SAF will announce his retirement and expect Marcello Lippi to be the next manager.I have heard from a source at The Lane that Spurs are tracking French attacking midfielder Phillipe Caren from Auxerre. He likes to play in the hole behind two big strong strikers. Mido will be one and Caren would liked to be involved with Cisse again once his loan at Marseille runs outMan Utd News
Some talented and exicting names have been roused up to SAF's interest for the Jan Window. Some names that keep occuring are Kaka, Kerlon, Huntelaar, Pedersen, Moutinho, Torres, Hargreaves, Nani, Sergio Aguero, Matias Fernandez, Shwienstieger and many more.
All of which will be carefully considered to boost the youth and skill of Man Utd team.
Possibal Team after Transfer Window:
Van der sar
Pedersen Vidic Ferdinand Evra
Ronaldo Carrick Kaka Nani
(unfortunately Kerlon looks unlikely to join the united ranks as he turns 18 on the last week of the transfer window.
LIAMoBolton Wanderers manager Sam Allardyce will look to give new contracts to three crucial players at the Reebok. Kevin Davies, who is out of contract next summer, will be offered a fresh two year deal to run until the summer of 2009. Captain Kevin Nolan will be offered a five year contract to ward off Manchester United, who have been linked with an £8m bid. Also, Senegalese attacker El Hadji Diouf will have the chance to sign an extended deal, with Allardyce ready to offer an extra two seasons on top of his current deal. Bolton will also look to make some changes in January, with Ali Al Habsi set for a loan stint in the Championship and Nicolas Anelka possibly set for the axe after a disappointing first few months in Lancashire.Hypia will join Newcastle in the summer, or maybe jan. agger finding his feet and looking strong. newcastle need to strenthen defence and hypia can add this to the toon squad. given could be sold in summer even tho they don't wish to let him go. arsenal will come in with an 11m offer which they cannot refuse.Plymouth To sign Leon Constantine from Port Vale or Chris Porter from Oldham. Jarvis in, looks a distinct posibility and Djordic Set to stay as He's putting in the effort off the pitch and performances improving. Barness Definately going in Jan probably to someone League 1. Also Holloway look for a Premiership young striker to loan in, in Jan.Write this down, bellamy to leave liverpool in the near future, possibly bent to replace him. defoe or keane to villa, we will have a tottenham striker. Baros to go for a reasonable price. eastwood to join a prem club - im not quoting a specific team because every1 wants him. west ham will not be spending too much in jan as magnusson wants to assesss pardew firstly. djemba just go. trundle to bolton to make goals that anelka can't. Lyon will make an ambitous bid but be unsuccessful and trundle will partner anelka up front. deadly. as for man u chelsea and are
senal. who cares. Gordon Strachan is set to launch an audacious bid to bring back Henrik Larsson in Jan. The Swede is eligible for the Champions League and Helsingborgs have already said they will not stand in his way should he want to move. The only problem is the fact Larsson rarely changes his mind, although he may make an exception this time as his wife and son both love Scotland and his son loves Celtic. Aside from that expect Brown and Thomson to sign in Jan along with Steven Naismith.Man Utd will sign Torres and Gattuso in jan for 30million. Micah Richards will be signed in summer for 4million + Mikael Silvestre.Liverpool News
Benitez will look to strengthen the squad with the following possibilities;
IN - Micah Richards (Future RB), Sergio Aguero (Argentinian Wonderkid, who Liverpool have trailed for the past few seasons, also Aguero is an avid Liverpool fan who has stated his wish to play for them), Rafael Van de Vaart (Exchange with Luis Garcia) and Emiliano (Highly rated LB)
OUT - Zenden (Has not proved himself at LFC), Sami Hyppia (Possible retirement), Fowler (Possible retirement), Steve Finnan (Possible retirement) and Luis Garcia (Exchange deal)Expect Lassana Diarra at SJP on loan in January. I mentioned this near the start of the season and with Newcastles lack of defensive midfield options it will benefit both The Toon and Chelsea the same can be said of Paulo Ferriera. This fils two positions needed for no price leaving what little we have to sort out more defenders and fowards ie Ricksen, Beattie, John and VarneyRafael Benitez is looking to sign Rafael Van De Vaart from Hamburg for around £8 million in January. The Dutch ace is keen on a Premiership move. The other signing to be made in January by Liverpool is the £2 million signing of Lucas Neill, however Benitez is also monitoring Alves, Richards and Bale for that position. The manager is also lookin for a centre-back but it is unlikely that he will sign one until the summer when he will consider a move for either Anton Ferdinand, Curtis Davies or even Allesandro Nesta!
=v1=SENSATIONAL CELTIC NEWS!
Word is that Celtic have already signed up Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson for £6m and are now in the progress of sorting out Shaun Maloneys contract or making a £1.5m bid for Stephen Naismith of Kilmarnock as his replacement
Riordan will be kept but may go on loan back to Hibs for the remainder of the season
Pearson, Balde, Lennon, Telfer and Thompson are all definetly leaving
With Whittaker, Anderson and obviously Brown and Thomson being lined up as replacements + we'll go for Naismith to replace Maloney if he decides to leave as was reported in the papers yesterdayJanuary transfer targets:
nufc = ricksen 1m
all of these will happen if belgravia as expected put in a bid for the club in early december.
torres = 25m
tevez = 12m
reo coker = 8m
parker = 7.5m
all of these will never happenWhu 2 sign-
w.brown+richardson (free for NRC deal)
janot (switched with carroll)
FERDINAND- BROWN- GABBIDON(C)- BRIDGE
PHILLIPS- BARTON- ALBERTO- RICHARDSON
BENAYOUNBig Norwich News: Ex-Barnsley boss Andy Ritchie has been seen with Mr Doncaster (Norwich BoD) entering the Carrow Road complex. This is 100% Truthful is I work in Morrison's close to the Carrow Road Stadium and on my break I usually have a walk up to Carrow Road. As Grant has only just been appointed, I'm guessing that Deadly Doug Livermore may be out and Andy Ritchie may be our new Assistant Manager. Let hope this happens! Come on you Yellows!NORWICH CITY NEWS: JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW: Earnshaw and Huckerby to stay. Up to £4.5million to be made available to PG. Offers being sought now for several existing 'passengers' in the Squad. Contact will not confirm actual targets but they include some of the recently mentioned names.
Board now prepared to 'go for broke' for promotion, partly because last year of parachute payment. Therefore expect lots of positive activity in both directions during January.Birmingham City News; Matty Upson to Newcastle, to replace the real Geordie Legend that was. Jean Alain Boumsong, £2m upfront £2m on apps & success, David Dunn to Man City, unless Blackburn come back in for him, if he gets himself fit (his hamstrings have been fine all season - it's is ankle that have gone now) then he thinks he can get into the England Squad with Micah Richards & Joey Barton around him. Blues to sign Seb Larsson on a permanent to replace Dunn & if they go up Bendtner & Muamba to spend next year on loan to get a season of Prem football under their belts. Forsell to spend next season on loan at Glasgow Rangers to get his confidence back, knocking in goals in a glorified sunday league. Jarosik back to BCFC if they get promoted again.READING JAN TRANSFER NEWS!
