manager list of replacements.
and a few othersArsenal will sign Reo-Coker frome West Ham wither in January or in the Summer for a fee in the range of £9m. Wenger is also keeping tabs on Buffon, Trezeguet and Chiellini. Wenger hopes to complete the £8m signing of Chiellini in JanuaryI am suprised that so many people think that Buffon, one of the best goalkeppers in the world, will DEFINATELY sign for Arsenal for only 12million! With todays current transfer prices I find this highly unlikely. Especially when you look around at Europes other top clubs, Inter are now the new real madrid buying absolutely everybody and then trying to fit 16 players across midfield, so they of course will be interested! AC Milan would also be interested. Both teams are Italian and Buffon would most likely prefer to stay in Italy (as most of the italians do). Then there's Real Madrid with the Cappello connection who I am certain would happily bid 20million for a goalkeeper of his class. Then you have Manchester United, Liverpool and of course chelsea (why not have one of the best keepers in the world when you can have two) who will happily part with the entire national turnover of a small african nation for well anybody!
By my reckoning Torres has only scored once this season. He has also be sent off once as well.Arsenal news: I have close connections with the club and i can tell you that their will only be 1 signing made in the jan transfer window, no more then that.Portuguese winger Simao Sabrosa will finally leave Benfica in January. Liverpool and Valencia have both made it as far as talking personal terms over the past year, but for one reason or another those moves have fallen through. However, Valencia are apparently looking to revive their interest in the player and could make a £7m bid in January. Real Betis, Deportivo and Aston Villa are also interested, though, and will provide a worthy challenge to the Mestalla outfit.O'Leary to become Leeds Utd next manager, yes he will return, he comes back from his holiday in Spain on Friday as been out there for 3 weeks, Bates has been out to speak to him, he has been assured there will be some money come next summer when the club should be debt free again.
Roy Atkin will again become his No.2This is Steveo from the burger van opposite paradise, this will be the last as my van is now being moved. The last major rumour is as follows. Celtic have agreed to release youth player Greg Fanning to Cardiff on a 6 month loan, watch this guy score them a hatfull and probably come back as a class act next year, Thus remember i told you all first about Veneggor and Gravensen. Mcknight tonight over and outA friend of a friend who work's at Newcastle has told me that a there is alot of talk that Owen will sigh for Man U and that's why wonder kid Rossi went on loan after telling West Brom they wouldn't let him go after selling Ruud. And they are in talks with the FA over compensation so with that and a small fee (8m) from Man U they will have most if not more than they paid from him.Arsenal still may sell hleb and replace him with TIM CAHILL! arsenal need a player like cahill to battle, and also pop up and score vital goals, like pires did, and scholes does now for manutd. also wenger will try and sign igor akinfeev, the 19-year-old russian goalkeeper for cskaOK; where on earth do all these Arsenal rumours come from? Maybe knocked up during playtime,and uploaded once mummy and daddy are not watching!
Given Wengers track record of signing unknown young players and more established players who do not fall into the "superstar" caragory. Wenger likes to develop players to fit the Arsenal style, occasionly straight replacements occur i.e. Rosicky. Who in England had heard of Lehman, and look how well he`s done! maybe Buffon is a real option to break the rule of "superstar", we do need a good solid long tern replacement for Seaman, Lehman was never going to go on for ever.
A clear out may well happy in January, with the likes of Aliadiare finally moving on (he`s been given one more chance), Hoyte hasn`t made the step up yet, not sure about Luaren, Adebayor will stay, he`s still young and learning. Bendtner will stay and push RVP for place with Henry. Larson to stay at BFC with Muamba going elsewhere. Flamini will stay as Wenger will be loyal after his hard work last year, he`s good utility player like Grimandi.
If Hleb had settled better then it may have seen Ljunberg move on, this may still happen if Walcott improves and gets regular place next year.
Watch Merrida and Traore convince in the league cup.
Enough of the ridiculous, but keep the more sensible coming they are amusing.Heard from a mate of mine who plays for the arsenal reserves that arsenal are not too sure about keeping on "the beast" because he looks to be out of shape and struggling to adapt to the EPL and will now look for ramos in exchange for reyes who is definatly finished in england! heard him and henry had a bit of an argument about him whoreing himself to real who by the way look poor again this sesaon! ha ha haPreston look set to let david nugent join everton in jan after all david is a massive everton fan but preston have said as part as the deal preston will get victor anichebe or james vaughan on loan for the rest of the season everton will also turn to valencia holding midfielder ruben baraja the former spain international is out of favour because of the form of albelda and edu baraja will join everton on a loan deal if everton get into europe baraja will join everton on a 2 year deal.Firstly glad to see some people on this website can predict the future? Tell me whats next weeks lottery numbers? 2010 World Cup winners?? How can anyone state "Sheffield Utd get relegated" hate to tell you, there's about another 30 games to be played. Anyway, live in Glasgow and the rumours around here is that SAF is so in awe of the recent performances by Aiden McGeady against Rangers and Artur Boruc that he is considering a bid for the two in January with both staying at Celtic for the remainder of the season- - JWIRE- -
Manchester United news,
Manchester United will have money to spend big in the January transfer window.
Sir Alex was aware of his lightweight midfeild but as there was no one he wanted availble he kept his wallet closed.
It is understood that SAF has been set aside upwards of £30 million but a bit of that is for next summer.
Expect two signings for United.
#Fernando Torres will sign for £22 million,rising to £27 million(depending on sucsess)
#Daniele de Rossi from Roma,Fergie see's him as a young Keano.But beleive it or not it is harder to prize De Rossi away from Italy then Torres from Spain.Expect a bid for De Rossi early in January.A bid of £19 million will be lodged.
Hargreaves might come in the summer.
