Newcastle Rumours – Scouts were at the Hearts v FC Barcelona match watching Eidur Gudjohnsen, who is interested in a move back to the Premier League. We are also still chasing Collocini, De Jong and Nicky Shorey, however if we give Dennis Wise the job of dealing with personal terms, we can wave goodbye to all of these signings. He hasent got a clue. What is he actually doing at the club? Weve lost out on Modric, Aimar and now Reyes, all through personal terms.
Fernando Canvennaghi (6 million is would be a bargin buy for the hoops for the cl and everybody has to know about this skilful forward)
basa or tamas
4 in a row
Not a rumour, Robbie Keane was in Liverpool's newz bar with Steven Gerrard Carra and stan collymmore (strange) and a older ex player I do not reconise, so it is all but done lads
Rangers Summer transfer dealings are as follows,
Cardiff will be offered £1 million take it or leave it which is a fair deal considering that he can be signed on a pre–contract agreement in janurary.
If this fails Walter will go for Berra of Hearts.
Naysmith of Sheff United will be brought in as new left back.
Hakin Yakin will be brought in along with two of the following (most likely first), Vayren (PSV), Davis, Severin, Gomis and D. Fletcher (loan) Rangers have not given up on Davis– just trying to get a deal done quicklythe clubs are close to agreeing a fee in the region of 3.75 mill
players being told they are free to leave are;
players likely to be loaned out are
All six months
Alonso to inter, Lampard to inter in January, barry to Anfield in January to play mainly as a left sided player as Rafa has high expectations of Lucas in 2008/09, Keane in before Friday, to allow Gerrard back into centre–mid, Carra to play as full back to allow Agger and skrtel to flourish
LIVERPOOL and ARSENAL will not GET BARRY. HE will JOIN SPURS 4 £13 million+ KABOUL.
Fact: STOKE CITY have signed Olofinjana from Wolves this morning for £3 million, also Sunderland goalkeeper Martin Fulop could sign as a fee has finely been aggreed. Gud times for THE MIGHTY POTTERS
and at least three more to come before the start of the season. JH
I believe from a number of people that Tommy Gravesen will sign for Sunderland after being told he has no future at Park Head.
Premier League Rumours:
Arsenal– De Jong OR Yaya Toure maybe Bischoff
Man United– Berbatov
Liverpool– Barry, Keane
Blackburn– Robinson, Davis, Bradley
Fulham– Johnson OR Nugent
Hull– Nugent (maybe)
FC Barcelona–Berbatov OR Drogba OR Luis Fabiano
Real Madrid– Ronaldo OR Falcao
Villarreal– Vagner Love, Maniche
Inter– Muntari, Quaresma
Roma– Malouda (loan), Inler, Pavlyuchenko
Lets clarify a few things. Rafa loves hard working players and that is why Khuyt will not be leaving. Martin O'Neill was origionally correct to try an get every penny he could for his tems best player. We would do the same. But now he is acting disgracefully, it is transfer saga by press, and all from the Villa side. I reckon the deal will still be done. Keane to sign next week for approx £15 million' at least one more player to come after these two. The mancs cannot afford Aguero or anyone else in that price band. They have shelled out over £30 million for Tevez. The only big buys up the east Lancs will come if Ronaldo moves to Real.
Ok, I do not post often as I do not claim to be a source insider. Having said that I have heard that United are planning for life without Ronaldo by trying to firm up deals for auergo (spelling) and udinesse Alexis Sanchez.
I believe both deals will be completed by August first which will allow Ronaldo to move to Madrid for £60 million
Portsmouth In's and Out's
Younes Kaboul will snub interest from Sunderland and Aston Villa to join Portsmouth. Deal to be done in the couple of days fee to around 3 million+ puls add on's
Pompey will sign Shaun Wright–Phillips and Nicky Shorey with the money for Muntari's deal.
Sulley Muntari will sign for Inter Today with Patrick Vieira coming to Portsmouth to join up with France team mate Lassana Diarra.
Davis will join Hull or Stoke for a fee to be around £2.5 million.
Portsmouth Young center back/right back Martin Craine will join Queens Park Rangers on a 6 mounth loan deal.
Both Pedro Mendes and David Nugent will stay at Portsmouth and fight for his place.
Kanu will sign a new one year deal.
Noe Pamarot will also stay at the club.
Richard Hughes could leave.
Omar Krumah OJ will join the club, the The Gambian teenager has been on trail and has played in pre–season games and has done well. but Harry Redknapp does not think he is ready to play top flight football so he will go out on loan to a championship club.
Harry Redknapp would then be happy with his squad.
Villa will sign for Real Madrid and turn down Braca and Tottenham. ( the fee to be £31.5 million)
Tevez will sign permanent for Man United.
Alonso will move to Fenerbahce and then Liverpool will get barry.
Huddersfield Town will complete the signing of Ipswich winger Gary Roberts on Monday for a fee of 250,000.
Also if Ipswich are successful in their pursue of Crewe forward Nicky Maynard, Teriiers target Alan Lee will be heading to the Galpharm for around 500 k.
Man United are going to sign Guti for £10 million, along with arshavin for 15.5 million with Saha going to Fulham for 5 mil
Chelsea will sign Kaka for 100 million along with Robinho for 30 mil
Liverpool will be selling Torres and gerard to Real Madrid for a fee between 60 and 90 million for both also Sergio Ramos going the other way.
these are 75 percent true because I am related to the star of the show, heskey.
Middlesborough will sell Brad Jones to Leicester for £1 million as Southgate aims to raise funds for a new keeper to replace Mark Schwarzer.
Defenders Anthony McMahon and Matthew Bates will complete a move to Hearts in a £2 million double deal.
With £3 million of funds Southgate will swoop for want away Aston Villa keeper Thomas Sorensen for £2 million and Thomas Gravesen on a Bosman and Sean Davis for £3 million.
Portsmouth will offload Richard Duffy to Hull, Lauren to West Bromwich, Sean Davis to Portsmouth and David Nugent to Bolton.
The profits of those sold players will be around £9 million + the £12 million paid by Inter for Sulley Muntari giving Harry a nice £21 million to spend.
He will start with a replacement for Muntari with the addition of Tom Huddlestone for £4.5 million and winger Jermaine Pennant for £5 million.
He will also strengthen the central defense with a late swoop from Sunderlands noses for French defender Younes Kaboul for £4 million.
Firstly let me say I have no real interest in the Premier League as I support Orient. But from a good friend working in Canary Wharf it would seem that DIC are growing increasingly tired of the problems facing them in their bid for Liverpool. If the deal cannot be sorted out in the next few weeks they will walk away and start negotiations for NEWCASTLE.
The logic being the club (complete with a very good ground) could be bought for a fraction of the price of Liverpool and even with investment on players the deal looks good.
If Liverpool is bought do not expect too many signings, because while some of the board may be fans the I stands for Investment and the whole point of DIC IS not to act as a plaything but was formed to provide long term investment income for when the oil starts to dry up.
Im best mates with David Beckham lol not really.
nobby solano might be of to the MLS. L. a galaxy a possible detination as nobby has a good relationship with manager ruud guilt having played under him at Newcastle. a possibility?
however Ronaldo going nowhere, Berbatov not coming as relations between Man United and Tottenham is not good more likely Aguero or Fabiano.
The Henry rumour is just a red herring
James Beattie will sign for Newcastle for around £7 million. Kevin Blackwell will no doubt get twenty quid and a bag of hula hoops to spend on his replacement.
