Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Why do people insist on correcting peoples spelling, grammar etc? The Liverpool fan who ranted about another post's spelling couldn't spell himself. "Week" instead of weak! It's a rumor site not an English teachers practice marking site! Thankfully it looks like Berba's move to Man Utd. is off, not worth £28 million plus Man Utd. can't accomodate two lazy players. Truth is Sir Alex is happy with the squad he has and is putting faith in his youth, as shown by Possebon's inclusion.
Walsall Football Club are about to complete a double swoop during a raid on League 1 rival Leeds United as the Saddlers despetly look to add to their small squad ahead of Saturdays encounter with Southend. The Saddlers have already agreed fees and contracts with both Jonathan Douglas (£250,000) and Peter Sweeney (free) as the deal currently a wait a medical.
The Saddlers are also looking to offer former Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Gary Breen a short–term contract at the club after failing in their bid to sign former Southampton centre back Darren Powell.
My brother was on a plane with phil senderos heading to milan. expect him to sign on tuesday or wednesday.
you heard it here first
Hearts have offered a contract to Chris Turner.The Northern Ireland U21 star who was on trial with Rangers recently has been offered a deal.John Murray thought he had signed Turner until Rangers jumped in.Turner was not offered a deal by Rangers and is now ready to accept a contract from Hearts.
To the imbicile who said 'U liverpool fans are so funny saying liverpool will make a suprise bid for frank ribery . .you don't even have the money to buy barry and he costs £18 million and ribery costs at least £25 million so dream on'. First of all learn how to spell. Your punctuation is also a little week so maybe practice that up as well. Secondly it's not that liverpool don't have enough money for barry, it is that both hicks and gillett do not believe he is worth 18 million. Get your facts right before you make a fool of yourself again. Onto some real rumours. The asking price for Reira is too high and Rafa won't be held to ransom on this one. Stuart Downing is still a possibility as is Quaresma, althoug we are unlikely to hear anything until later this week. Downing has now become first option and Quaresma is second. Although do not be shocked is Rafa pulls off a loan deal for Drenthe. You did not hear it here first.
Everton have scouts in France watching Auxerre's Thomas Kahlenberg. Moyes has had him watched before whilst at Brondby.
Celtic will make one more signing this week.
Spurs news spurs look set to sign arshavin after he was left out of the zenit squad for the weekend, falcao will also signed from river plate, a shock move for owen may be made,
Eider Gudjohnson to sign for Celtic on loan with a view to a permanent move.
Alexander Madlung from Hertha Berlin to arrive on Monday for talks.
Peter Lawell in talks to bring Crespo on loan.
To whoever sent in the above rumour please get you facts straight before opening your mouth.
First,Gudjohnson has stated on barca website he will stay for atleast 1 more season.
second, Alexander Madlung plays for Vfl Wolfsburg and finally Jose Mourinho said he will not be signing anymore strikers as he is happy with what he has got which means he won't be letting crespo go.
My sources have told me four very interesting, and more than likely true, possibilities for the coming weeks. They are:
1. Alex Ferguson is considering making Ryan Giggs his assistant manager when his coaching badges come through in september.
2. Rick Parry will resign within 10 days after he lost the confidence of George Gillete. He is rumoured to be considerining offers from the FA, Sunderland, Wigan and Man City. Expect him to make it look like he is leaving Liverpool for one of these but he was forced out by a rare show of unity by the Americans, whose relationship is showing considerable signs of improvement.
3. Man City will be one of the busiest club in the final week of the transfer market, making moves for mateja kezman, rob green, david nugent and jermaine pennant.
4.Alan Curbishly could be out of a job very soon with the majority of the board favouring having wheeler dealer Sam Allardyce in charge.
SAFC i have heard that keano is going to bring back Arca from middlesbro' for about £6million to sort out our left back problem
Everton are expected to sign Turkish international Necati Ateş this week on a free transfer, he has been on trial with the club for the past week.
Thiago neves to man city
stephen appiah to pompey
hearts to sign another kaunus player (hopefully ledesma but probably not) not signing priskin
thiago motta to pompey
and finally swp and tubby ronaldo to city are the outsiders!!
I think we need to put an end to the CRESPO rumour at celtic. .He is paid 80k a week plus in italy and even if celtic agreed to pay HALF his wages it woud break our wage structure 40k plus add ons could end up about 50–55k a week SORRY but we cant afford that!!!!ALSO don't be surprised to see a new midfielder at celtic in the next 5 days possibly sooner not a massive name but will do for me if it comes off!!!HAIL HAIL
There is no chris patrick who plays for hull city chris patrick is an american football player.
M.johnson to arsenal from man city
d.nugent to Hull season long loan
To the bear who wants to see the Gers sign Cesar Arzo, he has already signed for Recreativo de Huelva. So I imagine that's not going to happen, expect a more realistic signing, such as Berra of Hearts, will the ex St Thomas Of Aquin's High School pupil want to sign? Smith has lost the plot, Murray should move him on and make a move for the Laudrup Brothers to take over. This would give the fans an entertaining, attack minded team, and would give young guys like Fleck, Loy, and Furman their chance to shine! Smith's tactics and signings have been terrible, if no change is made get set for another "anti–footballing" season from Ibrox.
A disgruntled bear. .we are the people!
I HAVE INSIDE INFORMATION .
ARSENAL WILL SIGN 2 NEW PLAYERS
