Charlton News - Dowie will not sign Diao after seeing him train as the player looked tried and lack skill. Liam Miller will join for £1.3m, while Murphy and Routledge will sign for £2.5m. Dowie is also in talks with Sorin as the Queudrue deal is looking unlikely. Isaksson will have talks before Dowie goes to spain and Lupoli will join on loan with a view to a £1.6m move. My friend works in the clubs office and deals with most of the paper work.

Man United will let go Ruud Van Nisterlooy to Bayern Munich in exchange will be Shwienstieger or Hagreaves plus 7 million.
The player to replace Ruud will be either Defoe,Klose,martins(only if Inter sign another striker and don't let Adriano go) or Makaay and NOT TORRES becuase he has rejected Man United about 1 million times!

possible team next season:
Carr Taylor Kovac Bridge
SWP Parker Emre Duff
Newcastle are trying there best to bring RvN to the club, however I can't see us getting him. Talking to Glen last night, he said he will try get 13.6mill out of Freddy, but still doesn't think Man U will accept this bid.
Also a friend from Liverpool says they have signed Nicolas Anelka and I trust this source 100%
Sheffield United targets:
Darren Ward (keeper)-free
Sheff United will sign Jason koumas for £1.5-£2m, Goalkeeper Darren Ward on a free and olivier Bernard, who is currently on trial, for around 500k. A bid for Heider Helguson is also likely.
Blades line up:
Sommeil Bromby Davis Armstrong
Ifill Jagielka Koumas Tonge
My english not very good. I am david villa cousin-i think is right-he tell me he go to liverpool but in august because liverpool wait for money in august. He say also joaquin phone benitez to go to liverpool but not yes or no>
Tomorrow, the 27th off july, is the day that Liverpool F.C. must prove to the council that they have the money for the new stadium or else lose the £20 million for Stanley Park. Last week Rick Parry said that the new stadium will go ahead and that there is no reason to panic. Obviously he know´s something we don´t and that is that Liverpool have indeed the money for the stadium.
Behind the scenes there´s much been working on the take-over. The Kraft-family has taken over the club. It will be revealed when all the transfers are done so Liverpool don´t have to pay over the odd for the players they want.
With Kraft taken over he also puts some friends on the board. He also has big plans to generate more money. One item that will be closely looked at is to expand the merchandising. Kraft thinks that Liverpool can get millions of pounds from America regarding merchandising. He also knows some big companies that would like to get involved with Liverpool F.C. only because Kraft is being seen as one of the honest, good, quieltly and most reliable businesspartner in America.
So all you Liverpudlians, the future is Red, the future is bright, the future is Kraft!!!
Cashley Cole to Chelsea £15 million + Gallas to be tied up by the end of the week. Good business if you ask me!! db
Newcastle will sign another player from Chelsea early next week %100 true. Rumours are that it could be either Geremi or Huth. db
Boro will sign 2 defenders a midfielder and one striker expect them to be Huth, Bridge, SWP and Diego Tristan top 6 finish nxt season
Charlton Athletic are to sign Lyons Defensive midfielder Yacine Hima on trail.
GREAT NEWS !!!!!!
To all Celtic fans-
Do not believe this Dion Dublin talk, it's only a smoke screen.
Celtic are burning mid-night oil to actually get Nicolas Anelka on loan, with an option to buy him outright at the end of the season.
This apart there is money made available by the board after the dismal showing in the friendlies & after Strachan embarassing them in public by talking of re-signing 37yr old Dion Dublin. No disrespect to him, but we aspire for better & younger player.
So expect these signings in the next few days:
Nicolas Anelka (Loan)
Sol Campbell (Free)
Thomas Gravesen (2.3 mill)
John O'Shea (2 mill)
Guiseppe Rossi (Loan)
Some had actually mentioned these same names on these pages a couple of days ago & now I'v been hearing these names whispered around in Glasgow too. So I guess this must be true !!
Also the names touted about for the exit door are:
So let's wait & watch & hope for the best !!
Steve Finnan is a £2.5 million target for Reading as Liverpool will sign Alves so Finnan will be down the pecking order. Could be announced as early as Friday.
PENNANT will sign for Liverpool for 6 million, but this will not be instead of Daniel ALVES !
Daniel ALVES will sign for Liverpool for £12.
Liverpool team tnext season will be;
ALVES CARRAGHER PALLETTA AURILIO

This will be a much more attacking team with a graet deal more width, with adventerous attacking full backs.
In th January transfer window or even after the season ends a new forward will be signed, TORRES !!!! His contract is currently running out (only two years left) and Liverpool have set up an agreement with Athletico Madrid and TORRES to sign him. 100000000000000% True
How do I know ? I'M Rick PARRYS gardener !!

liverpool have sign three players and they will be presented on august the 1st and i have heard that the takeover is complete and will also be presented august the 1st.
everton have more money than everbody thinks they have. they have around 12 million left to spend. i know this because my mum works as the head financial officer at goodison. she has told me that everton will make a 7 million bid for fenerbache's sanli tuncay. also to follow will be petrov for 3 million + naysmith. you heard it here first.
''And importantly Kerlon, Torres, Gattuso and Toni will definitely sign for Man Utd.''
COULDN@T BE MORE WRONG IF YOU TRIED, TORRES STAYING IN SPAIN FACT! TONI JOINING INTER FACT! KERLON JOINING REAL FACT! GATTUSO LOOKING TO REPLACE VAN BOMMEL AT BARCA FACT! MAN UTD WILL SIGN CARRICK & POSS. PIRLO.
Arsenal Will sign Fran Merida, Nuri Sahin and a young danish talent called Martin Vestergård..the last guy has also called upon interest from several spanish clubs aswell as italians...
Arsenal r probaly gon sign A.Diarra or Y.Toure for center mid they could get Appiah (Fenerbache)
but i doubt it on da wing dere choices r Ribery and Semoli i think at leest 1 of them wil accept
r offer for LB we havent bin 2 close wiv any1 but i think we will get prob Mexes not Davies
A.Ferdinad i doubt but lk hes made 4 signings 3 of them r young but 1 iz class
HEY FOLKS..... TIME FOR SOME INSIGHT INTO THE TRANSFERS THIS SEASON....
PERSONALLY IM A MAN U FAN , BUT THOSE PEOPLE WHO R LINKING GATTUSO, PIRLO WITH US ARE IDIOTS. NOW THAT MILAN ARE STILL IN THE CHAMPIONS' LEAGUE WHY ON EARTH WOULD THEY GO...?? CAN ANYONE TELL ME..
REAL MADRID CERTAINLY NEED A NEW LEFT BACK WITH CARLOS LOSING HIS HEAD, THEY SHOULD GO FOR ABIDAL FROM LYON, COZ BARCA NOW HAVE THE BEST IN ZAMBROTTA.. AND Y IS RIQUELME NOT BEING LINKED WITH ANYONE. IS HE STILL HAPPY AT VILLARREAL. MADRID SHOULD GO FOR HIM COZ THEY NEED A NEW CREATIVE MIDFIELDER WITH KAKA STAYING PUT AT MILAN .... AND RIQUELME WILL BE ATLEAST 25 MILLION CHEAPER THAN KAKA.. BARCA DONT NEED ANYONE NOW. AND AS FAR AS LIVERPOOL, THEY WON;T BUY A NEW STRIKER .. THEY MAY TAKE IBRAHIMOVIC OR TREZEGUET ON LOAN.. WHICH WOULD BE AWSOME.
There is a rumour that michael neville already has a new manager lined up for villa. This man is ex liverpool and current lyon boss gerard houllier. When he is in place he will raid former club lyon for fred and juninho. he will also take le tallec and pongolle on loan from liverpool. Baros will stay. There will be more signings but i dont know who yet.
Frogman you are wrong, proves how much you know. Liverpool trialist Lazaros Christodoulopoulos is set to sign a 3 year contact with Liverpool, I saw him outside Melwood and asked for his autograph and I asked if he was going to sign and he said 'definatly' for a fee around £130,000 due to a clause in his contract. Pennant had a medical today at Anfield and will join up with the squad in Switzerland before their friendly on saturday with Kaiserslauten.
Tothe person who said Rufete is heading to Liverpool on a free, you are wrong. There is premiership interest from Blackburn, Bolton and Charlton, but Rufete wants to stay in Spain, most likely with Osasuna or Celta Vigo
everton will try to get anelka as he wants to move back from the turkish league and he doesnt want to go to portsmouth. if that doesnt happen he move in for saviola. tommy graverson and malbranque are also on there to goodison before the season starts

we are the green and white army and come may we will be united sigen in the sun with the company of the Champions Legue The SPL and the other two cups
Liverpool officially signed a deal for Jermaine Pennant today, putting an end to the 'smokescreen' jargon that Liverpool fans have been insisting upon in their desire for Alves of Sevilla. Meanwhile, last year's failed Liverpool object of desire, Simao, will be transferred from Benfica to Valencia within 24 hours as the teams haggle over the last 2 million Euros. Valencia are also sealing deals for the sales of Mista and Aimar to help pay for Simao and another striker to better fit Quique Flores style and expectations. Valencia would like for that striker to be Obafemi Martins, but Luis Garcia of Espanyol or Fernando Baiano of Celta Vigo are more likely. Look for Valencia to make one final bid for Raul Garcia of Osasuna if the sales of Di Vaio, Kluivert, and Fiore go well. And lastly, news today suggests that with the sales of Traore and others, Liverpool will up their offer for Dirk Kuyt to the requested 10 million Pounds to meet Feyenoord's demands. David Villa will be at Valencia for a long time!
Liverpool have signed Jermaine Pennant for 6.7m. This means that the reds stll have enough money in the bank for David Villa who will be unveiled at the beginning of next week.
If the Krafts attempted takeover is a success then then money wouldn't be a problem anyway. Expect Alves or Simao to sign if the Krafts takeover the club.
Everton to sign James Milner on loan with a view to permanent deal around 4mil
As reported in various tabloids it seems certain that Stewatr Downing will sign for spurs after Duff snubbed the North London Club. Downing will partner Lennon on the spurs midfield that will also have Nedved joing there ranks soon.
Middelsbourgh will look to sell Downing for £11million as Southgate needs more money to strengthen his squad after the signings of Arca and possibly Huth
all those who thought pennant was a cover up for alves was wrong. But they still might sign him as well as villa, i think rafa may be tempted into a deal for guti for less than 12 mil although this story is quiet you watch n wait liverpool fans..p.s. luv it how some man u fans still recon they will get torres
I am a security guard at Melwood and picked up the following pieces of information today. A medical is booked for Dirk Kuyt on Saturday. But there was an insert on the form stating 'if Kuyt is unavailable then the medical will be for Klaas Jan-Huntelaar', leading me to believe everything is agreed with Ajax if Feyenoord keep taking the michael. One more piece of info I heard is that Dudek is in talks with Harry Redknapp and a deal will be agreed shortly.
I returned from my holiday in Majorca a couple of days ago and as I was walking through Palma airport, who did I see going in the opposite direction? None other than free agent Sol Campbell. Make of that what you will but I would assume that he's at least out there to hold talks with the La Liga club. Real Mallorca fits his criteria perfectly...they're a foreign side, it would provide the England defender with a big challenge and a move would continue to make him one of the wealthiest players in Europe.
Kevin Phillips to make sensational return to Sunderland. Quinn has convinced him to spend his last two years back on Wearside to fire Sunderland back into the Premiership. The move has currently stalled due to Villa having no manager but Quinn is confident he will get his man in by the start of the Championship season.
For the first time since his arrival, Rafa Benitez will not be making a big signing from Spain this transfer season. Not for a lack of interest though as Benitez and Liverpool were interested in Daniel Alves of Sevilla and many other Liga players. Asking friends who are close to La Liga they offered some insight. Apparently there is a strong backlash against the big Premiership clubs in La Liga, because the Liga clubs disapprove of the 'poaching' of Liga talent that has taken place over the last couple years. Particularly clubs like Barcelona, Valencia, and Sevilla are 'disgusted' with the buying of youth players 16 and younger. This, along with the disparity in strength of Sterling has driven Liga clubs to fight to retain their players and to hold strong to their high valuations of Liga talent.
