Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Gerard to leave liverpool,apparently his missus been playing away with local plastic gangsters,and he has had enough.expect real and barca to battle it out with 45-50 million pound bids.Hey watch this. Arsen Wenger said that he will not buy any player but he can loan Lauren with Curt Davies ! Remember this ;) see u on januaryThis time last year Lucas Neil and his Blackburn were sitting pretty in the relegation zone. Not a great start as can be said that of Newcastle this season (understatement) and look where Blackburn finished. Dont judge when short memories seem to cloud your judgement. Lucas Neil has every chance to join Newcastle, personally I don't think he will, but we pay lots of wages and we would offer him a first team jersey, something he would not get at Liverpool as well as the chance to play with Moore, a partnership that looks great internationally.
Moore currently is waiting for a new extension on his contract, this may have something to do with the Neil link.
Dont try and understand football as the strangest things happen especially when Newcastle are concerned, as for the name calling????Expect a shock move by arsenal 4 beckham in january . Also don't expect arsenal 2 keep baptist .Ok, I've seen on this website over the past few weeks, who Rangers will sign and that they have lots of money to spend. This is incorrect, I am a Rangers fan and it breaks my heart. David Murray got us out of the massive debt we were in. He has said recently, the only money that shall be available shall be the clubs profit, which aren't much. He is puting a lot of faith in the youth setup at Murray park. David Murray has also said that he would be interested in selling Rangers should the right offer come in. He shall get more for a debt free club, than a club in masses of debt, he wants to show that Rangers are as lucrative as they can be.I have it on good authority that come the end of the season, should Liverpool be outside the top two it could be the end for Rafa.
The board are worried that this new era looks like being a repeat of the Houllier days, a good first season and then bringing in lots of players who will get them no nearer the Premiership Title.
The favourite to take over is Marcelo Lippi who wants a crack at a Premiership club and has already been discussing the opportunity with the southern based consortium who are goin to be injecting cash into the club. Another season of under performance could also lead to two more big casualties, Gerrard, with Barcelona the likely favourites to sign him as they want another central midfielder, and Rick Parry, who has so far failed to do what he was brought in to do, attract investment.
My source is close to the club and assures me that these things have already been discussed at boardroom levelTo the person who said Liverpool are signing Billy Sharp of Crewe get your facts right before you post he actually plays for Scunthorpe. i see him play every week and his finishing is top class he's got something like 36 goals in 52 games, but hes not ready for the premiership YET. the rumour round Glandford Park is that he will join Preston early Jan after Nugent goes to either Everton or NewcastleI spoke to Gerrard recently! (not that i know him cos i don't). I said to him I get the impression your not enjoying playing on the right hand side of midfield, also that his body language suggests he aren't happy. He told me that's not the major issue, he is disappointed with the start they have had and feels they can't win the league already this season. He actually said he is desparate to win the league but doesn't think it will happen with the current players, he said expect to see big changes at Anfield next summer.Madrid to make a summer swoop for Gerrard. Adidas are heavily invoved in the deal as they want their best players at either the Benabeu or Stamford Bridge.Firstly i just have to say i wish all the newcastle supporters would get a grip they are not a big club, they just have a big stadium which lets face they can't even fill it these days, anyway to a truely big club Glasgow Rangers
Rangers will sign scott brown and steven whittaker in a deal worth 3.5 million plus allan mcgregor going the other way, novo will leave and possibley buffell and we will sign Bryan Bergougnoux and at least another 2 defenders and midfielders, there will be major activity as we do have money to spend and david murray will not risk another season missing out on the champ league as he feels if we do get there PLG can attract the names to be at least regular quarter finalists??? KEEP BELIEVING BEARS WE CAN STILL WIN THE LEAGUE??? 51 and countingLets get this straight;
Torres wil not make a move to a spanish team because he has said he couldnt bring himself to play against Athletico Madrid.
He dosen't care much for money so chelsea is unlikley but not totaly out of the question.
Man u is probabily most likley but the transfer fee could be a probelem.
Frank Ribery will move to arsenal but not until summer. Arsene likes the look of Klaas Jan Huntelaar but might have to get rid of A CF to bring him to the Grove.
Jens Lehmann is currently deliberating over a move in the summer to Borussia Dortmund and is expected to make his mind up by january in time for arsene to find a replacement. If jens decides to go Arsenal will aquire the services of Nuri Sahin for around 6-7Million.LFC
O my god, will people stop sayin that Gerrard will leave liverpool. Y would he leave the team that he loves? He's not a money grabbing or unfaithful player like Rooney, leaving his boyhood club just for a few extra quid.
Anyway here are some rumours. Benitez is looking at his ageing defence, Hyypia-31, Finnan-31, Carragher-28, so he is looking for some young defenders. He will bid for:
Micah Richards(RB) - 5m
Daniel Alves(RB/RW) - 9.5m
Curtis davies/Anton Ferdinand(both CB) - 10m/5m
He is also looking for another winger for cover for Pennant and who can be used as a utility attacking player, therefore he will buy long-term target Simao(RW/AM) - 9.5m.
Benitez is also looking at the misfiring strikeforce. with the likes of kuyt, bellamy, crouch and fowler there should be goals but benitez might buy 1 or possibly 2 new strikers, if so these will be from:
Torres/Villa - both 18m
Podolski - 15m (Would only happen in about 2/3 years)
Fred - 13m
Saviola - 5m
Defoe/D Bent - both 7m
Cassano - 8/9m
Trezeguet - 6m (even though he is rubbish)
There will also be a major clearout, the players which will leave or get loaned out are:
Crouch- 6m (will nly happen if we sign a big striker in his place)
Garcia - 7m (will only happen if Simao joins)
Hyypia - 3m
Finnan - 3m (he won't leave this season)
Zenden - 2.5m
Fowler - 3.5m (he won't leave this season)
These transfers will happen over 2-5 years because Rafa is constantly saving for the new stadium so don't expect this to happen over night.
Brilliant_stevie_gAlan curbishly will be named Westham manager by Monday.Celtic News ! Balde To Villa In January For 1.3 Pearson To Sunderland For 400k and Craig Beattie On Loan To Sunderland. In- Fletcher From Hibs 900k A Young Spanish Guy From Valencia And Ecuador Full Back Espinoza=Bad news for you man u fans i have it on great authority (u will have to trust me as i can't reveal my source) that torres will be leaving athletico Madrid in the summer but not for united. it won't actually be for any english team as capello wants him as raul and ronaldo are both getting old and tiring. capello wants torres and robinho to build one prolific partnership of pace, skill and finishing allowing van nistelrooy to play his normal game. sorry to break your hearts but it is fact. also gerrard won't go he won the champs league with liverpool and he knows in his career he can win the prem, fa cup as well meaning he wld have won everything with the club he loves. chelsea i rate will sign buffon and who cares who arsenal and liverpool sign they are not gonna win the prem this year or the year after it is a two horse race between united and chelsea.Liverpool will sign the following players by next summer:-
J.BartonALVES JO 2 LIVERPOOL IN DA SUMMER FROM CSKA MOSCOW!Ashley Cole is the last big money signing Chelsea will make for the next few years. Instead expect them to do an Arsenal and focus on youth team players and exciting young players from overseas. This has always been Mourinho's plan and is the reason Chelsea pay Frank Arnesen a small fortune. Its also part of the clubs long term plan to become self sufficient.Vladimir Romanov to leave Hearts in the next 12 months after sale of Tynecastle. He will leave with a huge personal profit by selling Craig Gordon and Paul Hartley, as well as the stadium and posibbly the clubs training ground. Apart from the money used to buy the club Romanov hasn't spent a penny of his own cash, instead he has taken out a number of loans(from his own bank)and has almost doubled Hearts debt.Hi Lads, Hope everything is fine ;0) Now to LFC news Rafa will sign Alves and Neil in addition he will try to lure Joe Cole and Backham. He will be also bidding for Vicentee, Rodrigiez and Belliti. No Gerrard to leave stop illusions and Flowler will not leave as Rafa wants to keep him in his backroom staff in addittion BEllamy has promised 15 goals for this season. We will see if things does not improve you might see Luis Fabiano or Maxi Lopez in januray Ah in addittion this Argentine lad Gonzalo has already signed for 2.5 m Pounds. The last thing I will request from you is to keep singing You Will Never Walk Alone I think Rafa needs it badly. Expect a thrashing for Reading tonight with my bets Fowler a Hatrick.
See Ya ALWAYS REDDDDDDDDDD AhmarilynDennis Wise to make a move for Easter from Wycombe.Millwall are going to be taken over in the next week by a australian tycoonWest Ham will sign the Ivory Coast left back Artur Boka who shone at teh world cup and who was followed by Spurs but didn't pursue in their interest.
Reo-cocoThere are rumours going round that United Chief Executive David Gill met with David Beckham's advisors with a view to discussing a move back to United in either january or the summer. Apparently they met in salford on Friday afternoonNicholas bendnter will move to newcastle united for 5 million which will see charles nzogbia move to arsenal for 4 milllion.Lookout for Beattie going to Newcastle in the January window being replaced by Nugent. A dream move as he is a blue nose.
Newcastle will learn from their mistakes, namely loosing Dean Ashton and Marcus Bent when you could have both of them for 4 mil, and take the 'chance' on Luke Varney at 3 mil increasing to 4.5 mil.
