Liverpool have joined the race to sign carlos salcido from PSV, who would cost only 2.5m. Salcido will join liverpool as they will offer him first team football, while rejecting wigan, roma and valencia. Liverpool will sell Javier Mascherano to Inter for around 25m, and replace him with ever banega from valencia for 10m. Liverpool will then use the other 15m plus 4m from riera and 5m from insua to sign marcus pederson for 5m, a very promising young striker and diego forlan with the remaining 20m.

Lfc update. The torres transfer is pure speculation. The fact he had a Liverpool scarf wrapped around his neck speaks volumes. Yes he's not happy we didn't sign villa as promised. He will commit his future to Liverpool this week with assurances that a top striker will be signed. First choice aggurro next hunttalaar. A left back will be signed this week not drenthe. A winger will be signed also. Liverpool will be back next year

LIVERPOOL news
I appreciate what you are saying mate and totally agree with you. I also had reliable information with regards to this information and me living inand around liverpool there are quite a few people close to Torres who I know, and also other members of the team.As you can see I posted earlier today
25 Jul 2010 10:40:47
But despite a little truth, there is an old saying LOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS
Those with loose lips will sink the possible signings of new players, and that's why any new signings are closely guarded.
Joe cole and Stevie Gerrard Know who they are but are sworn to secrecy to them.

Latest news
Purslow is infact in spain he is in negotiations with Fernando Torres, for him to return to Liverpool as a player.This is proving to be more of a set back to Purslows plans, As Torres is unsure about returning , due to the lack of support up front with him, He knows that Gillet & Hicks should have secured another striker last season , but instead the lies and promises they told to Torres, he cannot forgive them.The club now have to secure another striker to play alongside Torres, If this doesn't happen I can see Fernando going elsewhere.
Meanwhile, Philipp Degen has reportedly caught the interest of Stuttgart according to the German media. so that will be another player less on the payroll, and according to popular belief, Liverpool could be set to land a player swap deal with AC Milan that would see Klaas Jan Huntelaar move to Anfield, with Ryan Babel + £? going the other way.I hope this happens It would be a real coup for Roy.Liverpools Financial situation is still in turmooil as it still has to pay interest on its loans to the great financial Institutions, Hopefully we shall all hear more before the end of the transfer season, as negotiations are still going ahead with certain parties wanting an early sale and other parties wanting more money from the sale and building rights to the new stand.(6)(6)

RE: 24 Jul 2010 23:57:31
"Aguero has apparently put in a transfer request and with liverpools connections with athletico madrid maybe it is worth ago, ok maybe we don't have a lot of money but if masch was to leave he would b a good replacement, obviously not position wise but you could move gerrard back to his midfield role and play aguero just behind torres, imagine torres and aguero together they would be brilliant, ive also heard purslow has promised to his best to sign aguero in order to help persuade torres to remain at liverpool.would be a fantastic coup if it is true and if we managed to pull it of".
Why is it that people are of the thinking that if we sell Mascherano we have to bring in a likeforlike player? The whole past critiscism has been around us playing with 2 holding midfielders, something Roy will do away with right away. Therefore the position vacated Mascherano will be filled by Lucas, Roy's captain on the recent tour. As for Gerrard falling back into the midfield it won't happen, Aquilani will be the playmaker under Roy, unless of course the BIG signing eveyone is talking about does take place! In which case expect Roy do away with his need for a left back as we revert to just 3 at the back (a tactic deployed on the recent tour) and which will open up the possibility of us possessing the kind of attacking team Roy know's the fans are demanding.

tHE FACE MAN {editor's note – hopefully with Bridge? I hope he never gets near a Liverpool shirt myself, far too slow and not good enough to make up for the lack of pace. I expect a left back to sign in the next couple of days, probably from Spain rather than England.}(3)(7)

I had posted about a week ago that my source ( 100% reliable has two cousins playing for top 10 EPL sides..serious!) had told me that he had heard Arsenal would be signing Stekelenburg and Subotic. So.. now news is breaking on a potential deal for Stekelenburg, and a deal is imminent for a 17 million CB from Germany. I think the Akinfeev story that is being circulated is just talkthe "Ajax" contingent is TOO influencial at the Emirates..expect Stekelenburg to be announced before the Emirates Cup. Subotic has already toured the Arsenal training facilities..and again..I believe Mertesacker is a smokescreen as well to keep other clubs from hijacking the deal. The last piece of info I received is that Fabregas WILL be sold. I only pass on what I hear mates!(4)(10)

 

 25 Jul 2010 22:01:52
I have abit of an insight into whats happening with Manchester United, Who they are interested in, who they want to sell, etc, etc.

Interests;
Stefan Defour Sir Alex is clearly interested in the Midfield man, whether he'll get him is another story a fee of £13.2 Million has been 'quoted'.

Eden Dzeko The last news i heard on this was just before Manchester United signed Hernandez so things may have changed.

Jack Rodwell This is just an obvious target who has however recently signed a new deal at everton so an offer of atleast £27 Million would be needed, IF Sir Alex tries and Fails to sign Rodwell Tom Huddlestone has been named as plan B.

Departures;

Macheda With him having the same development problems as Rossi he may be sold for a fee of £8 Million, but the more likely option is a 3 month Loan Spell at either a Spanish, Dutch or English club.

Welbeck this depends on his PreSeason but its likely he will go out on Loan with Newcastle being the Media's choice HOWEVER Blackpool seem to be the more Likely choice as they have a lack in firepower.

Michael Carrick Michael has been given one more season to prove he can be consistant at the highest level for an entire season, if he fails it is likely that he will be sold sooner rather than later with Everton or Aston Villa being the likely clubs, he may even go this season depending on IF anyone is signed in a midfield role, if he goes a fee of around £712 Million has been reported.

news in general;

any deals for players won't be agreed until the Preseason tour has ended or is atleast back in the UK (& ROI).

a new Goalkeeper will not be signed in the near or immediate future as Edwin has commited his future and may only be signed for the season but wishes to stay on longer, Ben leaving will push tomasz kuszczak and either Ben Amos or Conor Devlin. It is believed that unless a problem occurs tomasz will succeed Edwin Van der Sar.

Arthur johnson.

(DEAR ED, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF TOMASZ KUSZCZAK BEING PUSHED AS NUMBER ONE? AND WHO DO YOU THINK UNITED NEED TO SELL AND/OR NEED TO BUY [DON'T MENTION BERBATOV]. {editor's note – I don't see Kuszczak as quite good enough to be honest. I personally feel you only need an attacking midfielder such as Ozil to complete your squad.}(5)(6)

 

 25 Jul 2010 22:04:37
Not exactly a rumour and i don't think the McCoist twitter is real as it's very unprofessional. If it somehow is true i think a more likely rumour could be Gibbs instead of Wilshere. Rangers desparately need cover for left back or could be deployed more as a midfielder as we need wingers and Papac can go back into the centre for cover although i personally feel he's a liability there. Gibbs is a good young player and backup to Clichy and although he was getting a few games last season until hit by injury. Not sure if Wenger would let him go however and if they'd keep him for backup as im not sure if Traore is still there as i remember interest from PSG. Just a thought though!(4)(7)

{editor's note I haven't heard of this at all. But it would make sense, Akinfeev is an excellent young keeper with only 18 months left on his contract.} Ed, you are wrong mate, Akinfeev himself said he has a contract till 2013. Would be too pricey and has no chance of coming to Arsenal, ye all know Wenger is a tight old git. {editor's note where did Akinfeev say that? I haven't seen anything on him actually signing the new contract he was offered.}

Akinfeev said it himself on the sky sports transfer centre that he has a contract until 2013. {editor's note – he said it himself? Ok, cheers, I must have missed it as I was expecting an announcement from his club as is usual in those situations.}(2)(5)

To the person that put

Ian Holloway trying to bring in the 4 loanees that helped Blackpool gain promotion to the premier league.

Seamus Coleman( has recently signed a contract with Everton) but Moyes may allow him to leave on loan to get first team experience.
Dj Campbell
Barry Bannan
Stephen dobbie.

Also Holloway has had a number of trialists in Devon this week including: Francis Jeffers and Malaury Martin.

The deal to sign Dekel Keinan is awaiting a work permit.

After having bids rejected for David Goodwille and Garry Kenneth this week, Holloway is expected to increase his bid for the pair.

Expect Ollie to make possible moves for Paddy McCourt, Danny Welbeck(loan) and a new keeper

you can only have 2 players on loan in the premier league, Dekel Keinan has his work permit but has to do a english test!!(5)(2)

Heard cristian purslow is in madrid doing some sort of deal with spanish clubs for a left back. it looks like ashley cole is going to real madrid despite what chelsea have said about him staying he clearly is not happy in london and wishes to move abroad.Now with ashley cole leaving for madrid, madrid will have three left backs marcelo, drenthe and the incoming cole which leaves me thinking is it marcelo who purslow is in discussions with. After all he won't be playing many matches with cole in the team he is the best left back in the world by the way.
If liverpool can get marcelo it would be very good signing for them because he is young, pacey got a get left foot and good going forward (he is brazillian after all).liverpool should be able to get him for around 9million.(8)(8)

@Red Lenin.

The reason that qoutations are used is so that who ever is printing the story about the "Hodgson Beef situation" can then say that they lifted it from the news of the screws.

The truth is this. It is a story, run by a news international "rag". It has no confirmation from within the club, I know someone who works in the offices at Anfield and they say that talking to anyone from any of the newspapers who lied is a discaplinary offence, so it is a made up story that sounds good, so other papers have carried it on. Believe me when I say, Liverpool FC has no friends on Fleet Street..(8)(5)

This to the idiots on about gallas to celtic there been nothing from celtic fc regarding gallas, and talk of 45k you mad, he on 90k a season at arsenal, and at this moment panithanikios have spoke to his agent regarding his wage demands, he is a free agent at 33 years old, now if panithanikios worried about his wages be out of there reach then celts will not be able to afford his wages, because he will want more than 45k, and at q and a tonight with lennon, he spoke about where he sees the club and see keane and bellamy wages maybe out of celts reach, he also stated he would love to keep mcgeady, mcgeady has 3 years left on contract, so not as if we have to sell him this season, i say forgot bellamy, and lets by youth, rangers will have a weaker team this year, already got hooper who looks a top talented player and scores goals for fun and instead of bellamy i would go for a much better prospect at 21 years old plays for roma and will cost celts 5million pounds plus higher sell on in future player i think we should go for is okaka??. also his agent supposedely been in touch with celtic and other clubs regarding transfer of the player as roma look to offload him this summer.(7)(5)

Manchester united going for defour is a smokescreen for ozil. Fergie will not risk for defour incase he becomes another hargreaves and we don't want that! However if ozil fails united will make a shock bid for ronaldinho! Fergie has always been fond of him n tried signing him before he went to barca. could also help anderson turn up a gear!

TRUMORS So this is a smokescreen that has been in place for a year is it? Well before most people even knew who ozil was.

Its well documented with the letter from fergie and the club asking Liege to keep them informed on how his recovery is coming along that Defour is a legit target and providing he makes a full recovery a possible Jan move may becon.

ronaldinho?? Have you been on the sauce?

Not only has his agent and AC's president both said they are happy to end his career there also he is rubbish. Anderson is a regular party goer so how would legendary hell raiser Ronnie help get Ando on track?

Ozil is interesting as there seems to be wide spread interest in him yet with only 1 yr on his contract left im surprised nobody has tried to steal a march and get a deal wrapped up quickly and avoid a bidding war.

My thoughts are that Bremen have set a price for him and have let all parties know what the fee is but it will be considered to high by all with his contract situation.(11)(10)

Walter Smith would never let him reveal Rangers transfer news over Twitter and why would he call himself the RealAllyMcCoist there is also a RealAndyGoram page which is clearly fake to and are made by the same guy.


It is not fake as the rangers team to face blackburn was announced on it before the game and if you look at who he follows u can see it is him.WATP(2)(10)

How can Fabregas sign a contract with Barcelona without a fee being agreed with Arsenal? The answer is that he cannot – of course.

to whoever wrote this

why would micheal boulding come on wearing bennet on the back of his shirt , yes boulding is on trial but the trialist was an argentian striker who is friends with colace who was explaining instructions to him cos he isn't english

chris wood will join barnsley on a season long loan this week(10)(15)

Arsenal!

Arsenal currently have 28 players as part of their first team!..This includes 4 keepers.so even if say 2 were to be dropped from this..this still leaves us with 26!..This also will make wenger think before any further signings.he will have to definitely sell/loan 1 player to cut it down to 25 and any further defense additions will see more players sold to make this accommodation to fit the rule of a 25 man squad Traore may possibly loaned
and Rosicky may also be making his way out if Mertesacker/Jagielka or any other CB is to be signed/

Keepers:
if a new keeper is brought in then Almunia will go , mostly to valencia..and Fabainski may also be sold which will promote either Mannone or Szczesny to the First Team

Not really a rumour, but more a statement of fact, as Rafa might have said. The story about Torres having "beef" with Liverpool was printed by the NOTW. Not a paper popular within the L4 area."

I hear what you say, but it's also reported on BBC, ITV, Sky, Sunday Times, Sunday Telegraph, Independent On Sunday, The Observer and several other papers. They are also direct quotes hence the use of ".."

In addition, Torres's continued silence tends to support it, as does my understanding from what I've been told.

Ed what do you think?

RED LENIN {editor's note – it's an old story, but it is well known he was upset at broken promises last year. Personally I think if he needs promises to be made to him about who the club are going to sign to play for us then he should be kicked out the door. I don't hear Pepe or Carragher making ridiculous demands and attempting to hold the club to ransom.}

"Mcgeady won't be signing for Villa, its a step down and he is looking for a bigger club. won't be leaving Celtic until after champions league qualifiers, though a rumour is that he will remain at Celtic till at least january.
a cash swap deal with either Heskey or Carew is a non starter as Celtic are looking for a straight cash deal, and any deal to buy Bellamy will be on a 1 year loan with option to buy at end of season which suits all parties."

ha HA. There isn't a bigger club interested in McGeady than Villa and it's far from a step down. It's actually quite the step up.

McGeady should be signed soon for about 8m
Keane is getting closer and closer for 6m
Ireland and 15m+ for Milner

All should happen soon.

McGeady is the most likely because of O'Neill(25)(19)

I was told some time ago now that LFC was sold!
I got this from sources who is 90% of the time very accurate in terms of football information, they informed me of 5 new faces at the club for the first team, these signings did not include the rezzies. I didn't state any names as i was only given one, Which was Aguero!
Since Broughton came out at the Roy conference and gave us the info he did, i felt that maybe i should forget rumours and just sit and wait. Only now with the few signings we have made and the name of Sergio now popping up regularly, i'm wondering if perhaps my source was infact very close to the truth!

I'm fairly well connected at Newcastle, but by no means do I know what will happen for sure, just bits of news circulating inside the club:

It's now common knowledge (published in l'equipe) that Newcastle have some representatives out in France to negotiate for Hatem Ben Arfa. The sum mentioned is £6 which would mean a hefty loss for Marseille, so a seasonlong loan is likely with a view to buy.

Hughton looking at two loan deals. The first will be Tom Cleverley, maybe only until January to cover Gosling's injury.

The second loan deal was going to be Patrick Van Aanholt, however in light of the Steven Taylor injury, Hughton wants to loan in a centre half and look to sign a left back on the cheap, or use Kadar as cover for Jose Enrique.

Finally, a striker is being lined up to partner Carroll, with Lovenkrands as 3rd choice cover and Best looking to be sold on. Newcastle did show interest in Gary Hooper but now he's all but gone to Celtic.

Some options being looked at are:

James McFadden
Carlos Vela
Vugar Nadirov (23, Azerbaijan international)

P.S. Hartlepool United will be taken over this week.(9)(16)

PNE Chairmen Maurice Lindsay is in talks with a highly rated midfielder and is thought to be closing in on the deal.

Sources close to Darren Ferguson understand he is to make a undisclosed bid for Peterborough striker Aaron Mclean for pace up front.

After Matt Phillips returns from The England u19 championships he is ready to bid around 500k for the wycombe winger.

Ferguson is finding it hard to thrash out a deal for Stoke city left back Carl Dickinson because of stoke's asking price for the player which they want 750k but preston are only willing to pay around 500k.

Beckham to west ham on a 5 year deal to go through on the last day of the transfter window



Im not a West Ham fan but if I was and read this i would be embarrassed. There is no chance of Beckham leaving LA cause of his twiglet of a wife is happy there. Also if he did sign a contract he would be 40 by the time the contract ran its course. He will run out his contract at LA Galaxy and then retire from playing, her may go into coaching or maybe even management.

AVFC Con

To AVFS Con do your research before you post! The proposed 5 year deal is not entirely a playing option, it is leading on to a coaching role, and to assist the bid for getting the Olympic stadium after 2012.

Although it is a long shot, as a Hammers fan, I am not at all embarrassed as I see it making good sense if all the elements of the deal come together(5)(23)

A friend of mine recently suggested that should mascherano be sold, the bulk of the money will be used to make another push for glen johnson mirror gareth bale and this is why our transfer dealings have stalled a bit. I know everyones going to slay me for this and say spurs would never sell, and there was that thing where he apparently said he hated us (although ive not found any official record of it) but for up to 25 mil? I think maybe theyd think about it certainly that's a lot of money. This would leave the 15mil budget plus sales (obviously minus shelvey etc) to find a striker and a cheap back up left back. Thats gotta be 20 mil at least so 15m striker 5 mil back up? It started me dreaming really.. Duckula(7)(22)

Ed, I seen you wrote something earlier which suggested that the new reds left back could be from a Madrid based club. I don't know wheter this guy has been mentioned but what about Antonio Lopez from Athletico? He may be there captain , but they have just spent a bit of money on Luis Felipe from Deportivo and therefore could subsequently lose his place in the team. Just wondering who you reckon it could be that could fill that position for us ? {editor's note – I do think it is either him or Drenthe, I suppose it could even be both but I doubt that. But both are surplus, Felipe was bought because Atletico expected to lose Lopez and Drenthe can't get a game. I have no idea which it is that Purslow is talking to though.}(15)(9)

Not really a rumour, but more a statement of fact, as Rafa might have said.

The story about Torres having "beef" with Liverpool was printed by the NOTW.

Not a paper popular within the L4 area.

Its fairly well known that Rob Beasley who is senior writer for this "News" papers sport section is a mouth piece for certain members of Chelsea's inner sanctum and will write storeys on their behalf to stir things up, particularly when they arent true and involve the red half of Merseyside!

Although the story doesn't have his name on it, you can be sure that he was behind it.

So then you can write the story off just on that one alone.

And secondly, when was the last time you heard a 62 year old man who is as well spoken and well read as RH use an American street slang to describe any situation?

Yeah, I thought not too.

So don't believe the hype, especially from fleet street, if it aint in the echo, its a lie..(17)(11)

Pueslow is in Spain negotiating a number of possible deals, depending on the sale of Mascherano.
Atletico left back Antonio Lopez is being pursued to play left back and a figure of around £6m will be discussed. Lopez is well thought of by Torres and highly recommended by Maxi too, as well as playing well against Liverpool in the Europa league last season.
While negotiating with Atletico the names of Forlan and Aguero will come up i am sue, however current funds mean they are likely to be signed unless any take over happens before the end of August. Aguero would be the target of a late deal for a showpiece signing.
Other Spanish based players who Liverpool have been following include Banega, however he is unlikely to sign unless Aquilani or Lucas leave.
Drenthe is also an option for the left hand side, but that will depend on Lopez.
Konchesky is likely to be signed for around £2m as competition for left back and Flamin is being targeted as the replacement for Mascherano.
huntelaar is a possible loan addition, but if enough money is available I expect Hodgson to pursue Kevin Doyle, who he rates very highly. Doyle can play up front on his own, or alongside Torres and I am sure would score goals with service provided by the likes of Jovanovic, Cole, Gerrard, Maxi, Kuyt, Babel Aquilani etc etc
Team next season..
Reina
Johnson
Lopez
Carragher
Agger
Flamini
Gerrard
Aquilani
Cole

MORE NFFC NEWS:

Further to the possible imminent sigings of Whittingham and Pratley. Reds fans can expect at least two more signings in the next week or two. Forests contract offer to Shorey ( A fee with Villa was agreed weeks ago) was given with a time limit. If Shorey doesn't accept soon the offer will expire and Forest will pursue other targets. With Traore, Dickinson and Rindarooy all thought to be options.
A striker will also be signed, with Austin, Simpson and a number of Scandinavians being linked.
Tyson, though not keen to drop into League 1 will talk to Southampton if they can match Forest's valuation. Despite interest in Cohen and Wilson from bigger clubs they are both tied to long term deals and all but the biggest of offers will be declined. The only players that Forest have listened or accepted offers for are/where considered fringe players.

Finally, just a mention to the spurious rumours that Forest have no money. These are complete made up rumours brought on by the fact that Forests AP have been slow to spend what cash they have.(16)(15)

 

 25 Jul 2010 17:43:15
To the person who said this:
Liverpool to sign both Diego Forlan for £15 000,000 and Wayne Bridge for £4 000,000 before the Europa League qualifier second leg. Expect Javier Mascherano to sign for Barcelona for £25 000,000. Also expect the reds to approach Galatasaray regarding Arden Turan and possibly offer Lucas Leiva as part of the deal. Philipp Degen, Damien Plessis, Charles Itandje, Ryan Babel and Krisztian Nemeth will also depart bringing in around £13 000,000.

Mcgeady won't be signing for Villa, its a step down and he is looking for a bigger club. won't be leaving Celtic until after champions league qualifiers, though a rumour is that he will remain at Celtic till at least january.
a cash swap deal with either Heskey or Carew is a non starter as Celtic are looking for a straight cash deal, and any deal to buy Bellamy will be on a 1 year loan with option to buy at end of season which suits all parties.

Crystal Palace News
All has been very quiet lately, but I have heard from a source close to the club that Palace are to announce up to 4 signings next week. I believe one of them is the confirmation of Lewis Price's arrival from Derby County, but the other three signings are believed to be two midfielders and a striker. This would take Palace's total number of players signing to 7, but George Burley is very keen to reach the 10 mark due to the number of trialists which have played in the friendly games. It is evident that he wants more depth in the squad. As my source only knows that two midfielders will sign and a striker, I believe Burley will want another striker after that and a left back possibly.
The only information I can reveal is that one of the midfielders is understood to be Charlton Athletic's Jose Semedo, who is rumoured to of handed in a transfer request. I do not know that for a fact, I just know Burley is very interested to land him, especially after the disappointment of losing out on Barnsley's Hugo Colace. A holding midfielder is needed and Semedo would fit the bill perfectly, after Derry's transfer to QPR. Colace was approached and was set to sign last week, but unfortunately decided to show his loyalty to Barnsley and sign a new deal. The bid for Semedo is unknown, but it is understood to be an enquiry. There have been reports linking him to clubs such as Celtic and Wolfsburg, but Palace will hope to make the player their own in this transfer battle. If Palace do miss out, then a bid will be in place for either Sheffield Wednesday's Sean McAllister or Charlton's Therry Racon, as both clubs are unfortunately struggling financially and maybe tempted to sell up. However, none of these bids will be over the £500,000 mark, as is evident in the other midfielder we are close to signing in Owen Garvan of Ipswich Town. Our pursuit of him is public and a the deal should be done when a fee is met, as Garvan is very keen on the switch. The mystery striker we could be close to signing is a Premier League youngster, but our source has not been informed who this exciting player could be. My guess is one of Nile Ranger of Newcastle United, Zavon Hines of West Ham, James Vaughan of Everton or Scott Sinclair of Chelsea. Burley is thought to be keen on linking up with Chelsea and Arsenal to acquire their prospects on loan deals and Ryan Bertrand and Mark Randall are names which are up in the air at the moment. Bertrand is keen to join Palace, so if other Championship sides come in for him on loan, then I can only see him choosing us. That's all the information I know.

Comrades!

Hot from the inside! The story that Torres's beef is with the owners not the club is 100% true. Torres was promised Villa as a partner for last season. The papers were on the verge of being signed and the Americans pulled the money to pay debts instead. Torres halfbelieves this was their plan all along so that he would be 'trapped' into staying. As a result Torres is refusing to commit unless he actually sees a quality support partner signed not just promised. He simply will not accept anyone's word over the matter not Purslow, not Hodgson andefinately not the Americans. He accepts that the Americans are no longer in control and the banks are running the show now. He also accepts that the club will be sold 'hopefully sometime within the next 12 months' but he feels that a player of his calibre has the right to be in a team that is challenging for major honours on all fronts every season and wants to see that Liverpool are serious about doing that right from the off this time out.

He does not believe Liverpool are capable of this without a major signing to support him (probably a correct opinion).

City boss Roberto Mancini is under pressure to sell of a number of players in order to reduce his 37man squad to 25 in order to comply with Premier League rules. This could mean the sale of striker Craig Bellamy and midfielders Nigel De Jong and Stephen Ireland.

Also if he did sign a contract he would be 40 by the time the contract ran its course.

Heard a whisper that Purslow is visiting both major clubs in Madrid, speaking to representatives of Guti, Van der Vaart and Aguero. He's not tying anything up apparently, but looking at different deals, and also speaking to Torres, which is one of his reasons for being there, despite Hodgson making it sound like a happy coincidence.(41)(24)

Ive heard that Liverpool are on the verge of signing Maynor Figueroa from Wigan to play left back next season.

The only other signing that they are interested in is a striker to ease the workload on Torres. Torres has supposedly demanded this before he commits his future to the club. The man that they want is Aguero, yet they are unlikely to be able to afford him until Macharano is sold. Watch this space.

Paul Konchesky from Fulham for 23 million.

Charles N'Zogbia from Wigan for 79 million.

milner to man city
Guti to besitkas or aston villa. (most likely besiktas)
marcos angeleri to sunderland.
ballotelli to man city.

ronaldinho to the premier league is a possibility although it would cost 8 million and 100k in wages per week. Liverpool and aston villa apparently interested. although Ronaldinho wants champs league football

torres will stay at liverpool to get club back in champs league.

expect all of these rumours to be true.(34)(25)

I can quite confidently tell everyone that the story from the NOTW has been fabricated by quite a bit. You can read/watch all the quotes from roy hodgsens interview (from al the other newspapers, and watch on sky sports news website), and at no point does he mention "torres has a beef with the club". In fact all he says is that Purslow is talking to torres, and when you watch it, you see he is pretty relaxed and confident about him staying. In essence, this is simply the NOTW making a story up (no surprise given the fact that they made up a story about torres going to united, and, them being the sunday version of the Sun, made up a small story about Hillsborough)

In other transfer news, according to Rory Smith, Figeroa's agent has stated that figeroa is signing for liverpool with the deal being 90% complete, for a fee of around 8 million euro's

Kenny Miller out injured sufferring from shin splints could miss the start of season and transfer to Blackpool now looking as though its off.

Just to let u know that he played and scored against blackburn this morning playing around 70mins. Looked good

I am a rangers fan and hope he's not leaving.

Also regarding rino guattuso, his agent said "Olympiakos have shown an interest, but until we speak with Milan then we cannot open negotiations." So there is nothing agreed. He prob won't come to rangers, even tho he stated he would play for free years ago.

Still believe we will b fine since Walter is a good manager, and I thot they played ok against blackburn today.

All these rumours persisting about Rangers signing this guy and that guy even the reasonably intelligent Rangers fans out there must realise they need to sell a bigger £number than the £number they spend.

So bringing in Driver when we've already knocked back £3m+ from both Burnley and Twente Enschede. So what you looking to sign him for? £3.5m£4m? How do you really think that'll sit with Llloyds? Honestly. Not to mention the £20k a week that comes with any signing of that magnitude.

Same argument I am sure being thought through by Dundee Utd fans so forget about Goodwillie too.

As for rumours Jim Jefferies has stated he has his eye on a particular striker to partner Kyle and has done for a wee while. Hearts must be in with a shout as he says the striker knows we are after him and obviously hasn't put us off. I hope it's not Leigh Griffiths at Dundee. Talented laddie but wired to the moon. Lee Miller at Boro touted but surely too similar to Kyle!?(19)(28)

I have it on good authority that Liverpool officials are currently in Spain, Madrid to be precise and are not looking to Purchase Sergio Aguero but they are actually targeting Diego Forlan, i have also heard he is not to partner Torres, he is to replace Torres. He will cost them around 17m even though he is the wrong side of 30! A similar story has been printed on Goal.com, usually i will not listen to a word they say but i heard this rumour last night and it looks pretty solid!

After landing in Australia with only 13 first team players, Rangers have revealed that they are hoping to sign three players before the end of the transfer window.

They currently have three players on their radar, these players are:

(BRETT HOLMAN AZ Alkmaar) A striker and possible replacement for Kris Boyd, who scored two goals for Australia at the World Cup

(YOHAN BENALOUANE SaintEtienne) A former French Under21 international, a highly rated defender also attracting interest from Sevilla, West Ham and Newcastle, a possible replacement for Danny Wilson

(MICHAEL TONGE Stoke City) A talented midfielder who could fill the boots of Kevin Thomson, though he is also being monitored by Cardiff City and Nottingham Forrest(32)(22)

 

 25 Jul 2010 13:35:30
Simple as this. Fernando Torres has said even before the world cup he wants proof that LFC are moving forward and signal their intent by signing big. Now cole has signed Torres wants a big player to play up front with him. Aguero/Forlan or even Milito. He has not came out and declared his future to LFC because he simply has not been convinced. With the yanks breaking so many promises in the past he wants to see something happen fast. Thats why Purslow is in Madrid now trying to capture the signings of Aguero or Forlan. With the sale of Mascherano agreed in princible for around 25m LFC will have funds to do this. Possibility is say 22m plus Babel. Then LFC would have funds left to also BUY Hunterlar.(34)(29)

Yakubu will leave for 7million due to him not proving his fitness. This will pave the way for Klaas Jan Huntelaar signing on a initial season loan with the option to buy for 10 million.

So rangers now owe the tax man £56 million! Is this the same calculator that said 50 million Celtic fans in Seville!

The amount is closer to £24 million and the case is ongoing the loophole rangers used is legal provided all the proper steps and legal work has been taken. Anyway arsenal owed a massive amount but hrmc settled for £11 million plus £700k expenses so if rangers found guilty highly unlikely they would pay the full amount.

Got to laugh timmy all we hear is we are
going under blah blah yet we keep winning the league!

Anyway some rumours rino not gonna happen to old and too expensive aluko from Aberdeen is being considered as a cheap signing £150k also togne looks likely. The healy rumour won't go away but I think wages may be an issue unless we do a loan deal with Sunderland?

Asamoah Gyan is being tracked by several clubs. Fenerbache lead the race for the striker, however Liverpool, Tottenham, and Blackburn are all interested.

Barcelona are contemplating signing Villareal midfielder Marcos Senna as a backup to Sergio Busquets.

Nemanja Vidic has sealed a new 5 year deal at United worth £90,000 a week. David Gill has said that United are waiting for Wayne Rooney to come back from holiday so that the club can sort out a new 5 year deal for him. Both the club and Wazza want this to happen so a 5 year contract worth £150,000 a week should be enough to keep Rooney at Old Trafford.

This is why United will not be bringing any big name players in this summer (unless Evra decides to leave after putting his house up for sale).

I CAN TELL YOU THAT ROONEY WILL BE OFFERED 130K A WEEK AND HE WILL HAPPILY ACCEPT IT AS MONEY IS NOT HIS MOTIVATION, ALSO EVRA IS SELLING HIS HOUSE SIMPLY BECAUSE HE WANTS TO MOVE, HE IS SURROUNDED BY CITY PLAYERS IN HIS STREET AND HE WANTS OUT WHICH IS FAIR ENOUGH IN MY OPINION.

If Barcelona are interested in Torres, I am pretty sure thay they will have to sell Ibrahimavic first to raise funds. Ibrahimavic has said that he does not want to move to England so the options of offering the player plus some cash for Torres does not seem to be a possibility.

Putting aside any English clubs who are interested in Torres – I am confident that if he wants to consider a move to Italy that there will be options available. However, there may need to be a player plus cash deal made as Liverpool would probably price the player way too high.

I wonder if red suits Samuel Eto'o?

Anthony stokes will be signing for Celtic by friday with Sherridan, moving in the opposite direction as part exchange plus 1.5 mill
also a big name player will be signing as well
possibly Bellamy, and Mcgeady won't be allowed to leave Celtic until after the champions league qualifiers but sold before the end of transfer window, with a player exchange and 8 mill
Ramis will also sign in a cut price deal from Mallorca(38)(18)

Purslow is in Madrid for talks with Aguero. I beleive Torres has said something like 'if we sign Aguero i will commit my future to LFC and sign a new contract" (even though its already 4yrs plus). But will be to just stop rumours and attract players!
Expect the Aguero deal to be released in a week.
Also Huntelaar is now agreeing personal terms. It involves a player loan swap deal with Babel, which will benifit both teams. As AC.Milan are short on wingers but have plenty of strikers whereas Liverpool have plenty of wingers but are short on strikers!
Keep up the good work Ed

Comrades!

Purslow in Spain 'negotiating a transfer'. Liverpool need a left back. Rumours of Royston Drenthe being on the radar. It's all very square peg in a square hole. Drenthe is a left wingback and could fill the left back slot at Anfield and reinforce a more attacking philosophy. Drenthe was also chased for a while by Benitez in 06/07 but he opted for Real instead. He is very agile and although naturally leftsided can play either side in full back or winger role making him a handy utility player to any squad. He is a good friend of Babel (I believe they have even made a record together?) and there is no doubt that he can play at a standard high enough for the EPL. BUT and this is a very big BUT is he of a standard high enough for a team that sees itself as a permanent member of the 'top four' and is desperate to reassert itself into that group.

Personally with the right coach, I think so but it's a gamble. I also believe this is who Purslow is in Spain for, not Aguero.

After reading several rumours regarding Sergio Aguero to Liverpool..My thoughts have led me to believe 2 possible theroys.There must be something happening at boardroom level regarding a possible takeover..The new owners must want to make their mark on the club and impress the supporters with such a coup!The other is that purslow may well be in talks with Atletico Madrid but for a different player..This player may well be Simao SabrosaWe were heavily linked at the start and as Turan e.t.c. are too expensive Hodgson may well be in for Sabrosa!.Please your thoughts ed.hughboiii. {editor's note – there are no new owners, yet. I am led to believe that Purslow is there for a left back, not a forward, and that there are at least 2 clubs being spoken to about a full back.}(20)(17)

 

 25 Jul 2010 12:17:33
Just been told by a very reliable source that Purslow is not in fact on holiday in Spain like I thought but is there negotiating a transfer and was speaking to Torres as he is in the area. The club they are speaking to is Athletico Madrid could this be for Aguero? surely not I thought that rumour was just every one wishing!! want some info as I do not want to get my hopes up heard anything ED? {editor's note all I was told is that he was in Spain negotiating a transfer but I wasn't told anything more.}

In response. as amazing as this would be i see some problems. If we are to sign aguero then where does the money come from? Even from mascherano sale, the price we'd have to pay for aguero is gonna leave us with little/no money to get a quality left back which we desperately need & the defensive midfielder to replace mascherano (i've heard lucas being mentioned to fill this position but he is far FAR more effective going forward). However there is another possibility. could the signing of aguero be a double edged sword!? What i mean is, could aguero be a replacement for torres? We'd certainly have the money for him if torres was sold! and we'd have plenty of cash left to cover the other positions.

I hope we have torres and aguero next season, but right now i think we can only afford one and personally i'd much rather have torres. Maybe it's a discussion to sign him in january, when hopefully we'll have new owners and new money :)

Redfish I'm afraid its looking more like Torres out and maybe Aguero coming in, the chances of them lining up together next season is virtually nil as they will be using the Torres money to purchase Aguero. Its a shame though because it would have been a cracking partnership.(20)(21)

Hi Ed, Do you think there is any chance Purslow is there to talk to Aguero. He is in Madrid I think so he could either be talking to Aguero or maybe Drenthe and Van Der Vart? Or he could just be telling Real Madrid to lay off Gerrard cause he is staying. What do you think? {editor's note – I don't believe it to be anything to do with Aguero or VDV.}(19)(23)

Hi Ed, You were saying that it seems Arsenal are after Subotic or Tasci apart from Schwarzer. Does that mean no interest in Jagielka? Also, have you heard anything about Sol Campbell? Cheers Shaun {editor's note there was interest in Jagielka, but the price put them off. Sol is just taking some time to think over his options, no one will know his decision until he comes out and tells us. It is all guesswork right now.}

Ed, do you think Subotic is a big possibility?

Also anything on Rosicky to CSKA?

Honda?? {editor's note – Subotic is a possibility, but that is all, I have been told Wenger is waiting on Campbell, if he stays that will be the final defender signing for this summer. I have heard nothing about Rosicky leaving to CSKA or any deal for Honda, shame though, I would love to see Honda in the EPL next season, he really is a top class player. Best Japanese player I have ever seen.}(16)(13)

Editor, due to today's news with regards to the future of Villa's manager if Young was sold..do you think there is mileage in the story? If not why was it published?

To add more speculation..liverpool have kept the number 7 shirt free and he fits in with buying British policy..and may be the signing Joe Cole and Gerrard were talking about.

What do you think?

 25 Jul 2010 12:06:22
Torres has made it clear that he is open to offers, if Barcelona miss out on Cesc this week after talks with Wenger which looks likely, expect Barcelona to turn their attentions to Ozil and Nando! Roy hodgson has tried his best to keep him but he has failed, Hodgson has said this in his latest statement

"Unfortunately, I cannot do much more, his beef is with the club and not me."

This is a clear indication that the club has not been sold (Blair Mayne) and that it is not even close to being sold, Broughton said in the Hodgson press conference that offers will be coming in mid July, i know its not going to be made public but Roy would know the details, therefore so would Torres and he is still not happy, therefore a takeover is still not close.

Editor if Liverpool can get 5060m for Torres, what two strikers would you buy in his place? Suarez & Aguero? {editor's note – I wouldn't touch Suarez, I am not convinced by him at all, even Kuyt scored lots of goals in Holland. I would prefer a Ruiz and a target man, or Aguero and give Pacheco more matches.}(15)(22)

This is to the editor,
i was wondering if you had any idea about hodgson's comments in regards to torres. he's come out and said that torres has said to him that his 'beef' is with the club and not with his appointment, this all relates to past issues at the club, rather than the future??
any ideas/suggestions what the main factors are?? or do you think its just a 'kop out' to coin a phrase for him to find pastures new and wealthier ones at that? {editor's note – the players were all given promises that certain players would be brought to the club last summer, those players never arrived as the money was used to make an interest payment instead. The trust has gone between the players and the present owners, but, in my opinion, it is not the place of the players to worry about who the club buys. They are such spoilt little brats these days, expecting the clubs to buy players to keep them happy. It is the managers job to choose the best players within his budget and the players job to get out on the pitch and perform to their best ability. The sooner the likes of Gerrard and Torres remember that the better, and if they can't learn to do that then they should be removed from the club immediately.}(37)(18)

As well as lawrence the strength will be maloney, ramussen , mccourt , mcginn , odea , murphy , khi , crosas , forrest , zaluska to fill the bench!

Latest news
Purslow is infact in spain he is in negotiations with Fernando Torres, for him to return to Liverpool as a player.This is proving to be more of a set back to Purslows plans, As Torres is unsure about returning , due to the lack of support up front with him, He knows that Gillet & Hicks should have secured another striker last season , but instead the lies and promises they told to Torres, he cannot forgive them.The club now have to secure another striker to play alongside Torres, If this doesn't happen I can see Fernando going elsewhere.
Meanwhile, Philipp Degen has reportedly caught the interest of Stuttgart according to the German media. so that will be another player less on the payroll, and according to popular belief, Liverpool could be set to land a player swap deal with AC Milan that would see Klaas Jan Huntelaar move to Anfield, with Ryan Babel + £??? going the other way.I hope this happens It would be a real coup for Roy.Liverpools Financial situation is still in turmooil as it still has to pay interest on its loans to the great financial Institutions, Hopefully we shall all hear more before the end of the transfer season, as negotiations are still going ahead with certain parties wanting an early sale and other parties wanting more money from the sale and building rights to the new stand.

EVERTON INFO

JAGIELKA Man City enquired about 4 Everton players way back in May which included 18m bid for Jagielka. City offered Lescott as part of the deal. (The value of Lescott was 10m, but there is no way he would be resigned by Moyes).
Within days, Arsenal had offered 8m for Jagielka then 10m. Arsenal knew of the City interest at 18m so obviously Wenger is playing games.

ARTETA will more than likely stay, in any event he will not go to another EPL club at any price.
He loves Everton and the fans. The issue is the health of his son and the need for support of his family.

PIENNAR may stay but if he does go then Italy will be the his preferred destination with Everton reluctant to sell to another EPL club. Unsettled by an agent pinning his hopes on a big move on the back of a fabulous world cup performance to attract the top clubs, but which went more like a damp squib.

GOSLING agreed a new contract verbally but was told by those advising him that he could command a first choice berth in central midfield at most other clubs! Whilst the FA ruled in his favour on the free transfer, other evidence has since emerged. FA unlikey to reverse their decision (they never do), but the feeling is that they have been deliberately mislead.

BAINES to cross the park? No chance.

OWEN to sign? No chance.

YAKUBU, WHU bid 5m then 6m, Everton will sell for 8.5m

YOBO is surplus to requirements but Everton would be happy to keep him as a squad player.

HIBBERT has been interesting Wigan and Bolton but no firm bids.(27)(21)

Walsall FC news

To whoever said we will sign Vassell, your talking out your backside, he won't join Walsall. Blackpool are apparently intrested in him.

Walsall have rejected a Watford offer for Deeney, thought to be around £400,000. Birmingham are reportedly going to put a £500,000 offer for the 21 year old.

Young trialist Chris Stokes is in talks with Hutchings following two good performances against Wolves & Coventry City.

Hutch also wants a winger, this will probably be a player on loan from a local premier league side.

If Deeney leaves, then Hutch will obviously look for a forward, but you know as much as me about who that may be.(11)(24)

Man City began to transfer window with the following targets but every agent and club links them with a player just to put the price up simple.

Boetang signed
Silva signed
Yaya Toure signed
Kolartov signed
Milner close to signing
Dzeko Wolfsburg won't let him go for less than 40m so goodbye
Ballotelli close to signing
Rumour has it there is one mega deal don't know.

Lets say a it could be a 90% hit rate

They made enquiries about Torres but were knocked back by Liverpool.
The rest of the links are just fish and chip paper.

Finally, Mancini made it clear no first team player goes until he has signed the above. Now we will see Jo, SWP, Bellamy and Ireland leave. Ireland part of Milner deal above.
Possibly Bridge and even Ade. No loans (other than for Jo) so Tottenham will be asked for 8m otherwise no deal.(27)(21)

Serious news regarding Liverpool F.C.

..First of all Fernando Torres will not be leaving Anfield this year although he does have problems with the club and is unsure about where the club is headed. It's sad to say this but the only reason he won't be leaving this year is because there simply isn't anybody who wants him. It sounds crazy but Ancelotti has said he doesn't want to sign him, Torres himself has said he doesn't want to play for City, Barca won't sign him because they have Villa and Ibrahimovich and he won't go to Real Madrid because they are the rivals of his boyhood club Atletico. However Fernando will give Liverpool another year and if things change then he may stay a bit longer.

Now some news regarding Arda Turan, the Galatasary president (Adnan Polat) has said that the club is willing to sell Arda to one of 5 top clubs in Europe. According to reports those clubs are, Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. However he would only cost around £10 Million due to his contract length and has said numerous times that he is wants to play for Liverpool. So should Hodgson make a bid for Turan then he will be a Liverpool player for this coming season. Hodgson must first sell Mascherano (who wants to leave) and sign one or 2 fullbacks, and a striker. So expect the deal to happen within 34 weeks.

Roy Hodgson will announce three more signings before the end of the transfer window. Paul Konchesky will be a Liverpool player next Friday. Talks have been going on for about a week, and will sign a three year deal on Wednesday. Because of the Europa League match, the announcement will be delayed until Friday, where he will undergo a medical and sign his contract. He will take number 15. Jorge Fucile will also be a Liverpool player. His transfer will be concluded in a weeks time. He is excited about the move to Liverpool, but Porto want the whole transfer fee up front(6m) instead of installments. He will be the regular left back and take number 3. Finally, Roy wants to spend 20m on a striker to partner Torres upfront. He is undecided about who to go for, as he does not expect to have the funds until the beginning of August, but sources have revealed that he is looking at Giampaolo Pazzini, but he will cost 24m.(15)(31)

I'm a season ticket holder in the Kop and I have it on good authority that Christian Purslow has been in Ibiza talking with Torres, attempting to convince him to stay at LFC. The situation is that Torres back in March was stating LFC had to buy 4 or 5 quality players and although Cole has been signed, no other player has been aquired which would strengthen the starting XI. Purslow has now stayed in Spain and is speaking with two clubs about the availability of two players. Unfortunately I do have any more info on who these players are but people closer to the club than I are dreaming of Aguero. With only 3 weeks to go until the start of the season, there will have to be some additions as early as this week if Torres is to be convinced the club is moving in the right direction.

Reading about the Rangers Fc Loan in for a young english player.
Speaking to a friend who works with the Rangers Fitness coach they think it might have been Jack Wilshere but after Arsene Wengers promise not to send him out on loan for the beginning of the season he now thinks it might be Jay Emmanuel Thomas but Arsenal only wish to send him out if Rangers can play him in the Champions league as they think the Spl is combatitive enough for his development but the European games may better his overall game. Jay Simpson has been mentioned as with Celtic but he seems to be looking for a permanent transfer now, and I am unsure of his transfer status, I think he has 1 year left?(19)(30)

Someone please tell me why people are still posting that fabregas is going to barcelona in this transfer window.

fabregas has stated he is happy at arsenal
when cesc said that he wanted to go to barca, he didn't say right now, he just said yes i'd like to go.
arsene wenger himself has just recently stated that he will not sell cesc, as the last word goes to arsenal football club, not barca, and not cesc.
wenger has also stated that he does not know why barcelona keep trying to bid for fabregas because it is a battle that arsenal have already won.

I wonder if anyone at all reads the news about the players before posting rumours. Francesc Fabregas is a gunner this coming season, his contract says so and there is no escape claus unless arsenal accept a bid, which they have stated over and over again that they will not.

Click believable if you agree.

In response.. as amazing as this would be i see some problems. If we are to sign aguero then where does the money come from? Even from mascherano sale, the price we'd have to pay for aguero is gonna leave us with little/no money to get a quality left back which we desperately need & the defensive midfielder to replace mascherano (i've heard lucas being mentioned to fill this position but he is far FAR more effective going forward). However there is another possibility.. could the signing of aguero be a double edged sword!? What i mean is, could aguero be a replacement for torres? We'd certainly have the money for him if torres was sold! and we'd have plenty of cash left to cover the other positions.

I hope we have torres and aguero next season, but right now i think we can only afford one and personally i'd much rather have torres. Maybe it's a discussion to sign him in january, when hopefully we'll have new owners and new money :)

I expect talks to be held soon, I think the only reason nothing has happend as of yet is because Purslow has been on holiday and been busy speaking to Torres because of this he has not spoke to Hodgson in the last 2 days. I fully expect Liverpool to sign a Left back either jansen or Some one that has not been mentioned yet because they are all to expensive and also expect Turan to be coming to Liverpool aswell! Some one tell me Im wrong ;) what do you think ED You heard anything from your sources?

LFC 4 Life!! {editor's note – all I know about Turan is that he is desperate to join Liverpool and that Dalglish and the scouts have recommended him. It is now upto Roy to prioritise his spending. I don't think Turan is a priority.}(132)(59)

Over the past couple of days I have been speaking to Ally McCoist on Twitter. I honestly don't know if true, however, last night he message that there is a Big Signing on Monday at 12pm. All he said is that he is a very talented youngster being signed from a very big club and he is English., couldnt give anymore details. I don't know how much I believe it, however if something happens on Monday then you can judge for yourselfIve just been on his twitter and it does say that, but i think don't think it will be a big signing tbh probably a sixteen year old from one of the big fours academy.WATP(31)(121)

Normally i hear about big name signings for liverpool before they happen but my sources have said nothing about sergio aguero. but everywere i look on internet mainly here, i find a lot of people are saying that he is joining. i keep hearing that mr purslow has flown out for talks and that aguero wants play alongside torres. there must be some truth in it.
anyeay the following transfers have a good chance of happening:
wayne bridge to liverpool 58 million
(hate to say it being a liverpool fan)ben arfa to everton on loan
and finally i have heard that everton are interested in carlton cole.(61)(97)

Just been told by a very reliable source that Purslow is not in fact on holiday in Spain like I thought but is there negotiating a transfer and was speaking to Torres as he is in the area. The club they are speaking to is Athletico Madrid could this be for Aguero? surely not I thought that rumour was just every one wishing!! want some info as I do not want to get my hopes up heard anything ED? {editor's note – all I was told is that he was in Spain negotiating a transfer but I wasn't told anything more.}
