Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.



 
Liverpool will look to offload youngsters Zsolt Poloskei, Victor Palsson, Francisco Duran, Martin Hansen, Nikola Saric, Vitor Flora, Miki Roque and Andras Simon????? This won't happen as Flora, Poloskei and Saric all brought last summer. Its likely theyll be loaned out not sold. Rafa would like to bring in Daniel Sturridge from Man City, but faces competitiion from Chelsea, Arsenal and Villa. a bid for Ryan Taylor will be made if NUFC relegated(can cover both L/RB). David Silva target no1 willing to spend 28m on him. Kjaer or Hangeland will be signed if Agger leaves. so sturridge, taylor, silva,(kjaer or hangeland) signed for around £40–5m
  LFC in's

1. Joe Cole or Theo Walcott 2. Fernando Lorente 3. Kuba 4. Glen Johnson

LFC out's ( massive clear out of players, these would be my guess, many of the reserves will be moved on, those to be fast tracked Pacheco and Nameth).

1. Babel 2. Deegan 3. Dossena 4. Hypia 5. Arbeloa 6. D.Plesis 7. A.Simon 8. Voronin9. Pennant
  I tell you what some of these values are laughable i work at anfield and these are the biggest rumours for the summer

keepers nobody comeing in but itandje will go for a small fee or have contract cancelled after his recent behaveior and david martin will make loan move to leicester permanent

defenders philip degan will go again for small fee and andre dossena will go probably for about 6 million sammi hyypia will allso go as he wants to continue his football and agger will not make up with benitez and will go for 12 million glen johnson is a done deal for between 6 million and 10 million and expect rafa to make a surprize move for micah richards for 10 million

midfielder jakob blaszsowski will arrive for 6 million as understudy to kuyt and downing will come in for 12 million on the left with barry comeing for 9 million out will go pennant for 3 million leto for 3 million babel for 12 million and lucas for 10 million

up front voronin out for 4 million and expect big moves kerrison in for 10 million silva for 17 million and aguero for 24 million

this will happen garenteed

  Villa will boost there squad big time in the summer signing some good players which include; Dunne (4.5 mil), Richardson (3.5 but only if sunderland go down), owen (on a free), downing (15 mil), this one may come as a surprise but maloney is comming back (2.5 mil), anton ferdinand (4 mil), delph (2 mil), hart (5 mil), richards (3 mil), lescott (12 mil) and finally micheal johnson (6 mil). MON will sign these 11 players to boost the squad and to really push the top 4 all the way for the champions league spots while still challanging in europe. The team that is likely to drop out of the top 4 next season is none other than chelsea, guss will leave and the only man that can save them is the special one jose mourinho and can you really see good old roman putting his foot ion his mpouth and going cap in hand to jose.
  Totenham are going on a major sweep of young brittish players this summer, mainly from the championship

Gk Westwood – Coventry
Lb – Fox coventry
Cb Dann
Eb Eardley
St Ebanks Blake
Cb Mancienne
  Obafemi Martins will complete a Move to Manchester City once Newcastle are relegated.
  First of all, Tevez is not going to Liverpool.He is staying where he currently plays . Sir Alex will sign him permanently for 20 mil pound.
Second Of all, Ronaldo is staying too. No chance of him being joined Real Madrid in the summer as Nike doesn't want it to happen and they will offer huge bucks to Ronaldo to stay put.

But one man is certainly out in the summer. he is none other than Nani. and Alexis Sanchez is on his way to Old Trafford to take Giggs' place while Tosic would take Nani's role.
A Central Midfielder will be brought in as Sir Alex needs a replacement for Veteran Scholes. Diego, Hamsik and Fellaini are Sir Alex' main transfer target. Douglas Costa will be bought for future. And a strong central defender will also come to the Old Trafford this summer for sure. One of Gonzalo, Amorebieta, or Chiellini will be signed.
So,
Outs will be:

Nani
Fletcher
John O'shea

Ins will be::

Alexis Sanchez
Diego/Hamsik/Fellaini (any one)
Gonzalo/Amorebieta/Chiellini (Any one)
Douglas Costa
Noble Lazarus
  Tottenham Rumours:

Manchester City and Hull have enquired about Jonathan Woodgate and Michael Dawson respectively. One of these offers may be accepted (most likely Cities, crazy money). Spurs are looking at David Wheater and Micah Richards (exchange deal) as potential replacements.
Redknapp is happy with his midfield, but may need to find replacements as Huddlestone and Zokora demand moves. He has lined by Julian De Guzman and Alexander Tettey as potential targets.
Up front they will sign one of Kenwyne Jones, Yakubu, Peter Crouch or Nikola Zigic, unless their ambitious bid for Miroslav Klose is accepted, which is unlikely.
  Expect Coventry manager Chris Coleman to approach West Ham for possible loan deals which may include Freddie Sears and a return for Zavon Hines. To the person who posted 'Scott Sinclair will be coming on loan' this isn't true as Coleman has cut all ties with Chelsea following the rejected loan bids last season. Expect an experience midfielder and rumours emerging from the club point in the direction of Didi Hamann, Danny Murphy or Jonathan Greening. Birmingham may be willing to let McSheffrey leave but Ranson has discssed the move and a combination of high wages and recurring injuries have put him off making a move. Expct to also to see Kris Commons and Jobi McAnuff be linked with the club as Coleman is keen admirers of the creative widemen. Michael Doyle and Elliot Ward are on premiership wages and willbe forced to leave, the latter has had a private bust–up with one of the other members of the squad and will be offloaded.
  Liverpool fc rumours
silva will be coming in as benetiez was in talks with valencia but cancelled them as valencia were going to go to the press to get more teams coming in. so the ins will be:
silva 25m
barry 15m villa have no cl footy
johnson 8m
tevez 30m
outs will be:
babel 10m
itandje 2.5m
degan 2m
lucas 5m
from the skipper
  I have it on good authority that there will be massive movements within the transfer market this summer.

With Aston Villa making a break of it and spending big.

Mr O'Neill has had his scouts out and visited a few Eurpean games this season himself along with them.

INS
Defour – Holding midfielder – Standard Liege (£12m)
D Bent – Striker – Spurs (£5m)
Olof Mellbeg – Defender – Juve (£3m)
John Arne Risse – Left Back – Roma (5.5m)
Joleon Lesscott – Defender – Everton (12.5m)
Vagner Love – Striker – CSKA – (15m)
Micha Richards – Defender – Man City – (5m)
  AFC Arsene Wenger is preparing a bid for OSC Lille starlet Eden Hazard.Hazard has stated that he would prefer a move to his "dream club" instead of moves to Man Utd,Chelsea or Barcelona.Wenger spoke about Hazard in an interview with a French magazine over the weekend.
Blaise Matuidi has also hinted that a move to Arsenal could happen in the summer?The French media are already suggesting that a deal has been struck between Arsene Wenger and Saint Etienne sporting director Damian Commoli for the Les Verts captain.

  All this talk of Tevez for Liverpool is wide of the mark.

Rafa will get Javier Saviola for free, a deal was to be concluded in Jan but will be done in the summer.
  rumour around old trafford has it that fergie only wants to bring in 2 or 3 players. . with 2 big signings. the team next season will be:


––––––––––––––van der sar–––––––––––
–––rafael––ferdinand–vidic––fabio–––
––ronaldo––hargreaves–kaka–rooney–––
–––––––––––tevez–––––berbatov–––––––

(YES, RONALDO IS STAYING)

other signing will be dodo. .

mark my words
  West Ham United

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner will become a West Ham player in the summer, this will not be made official until the end of the season.

West Ham pay 7 million pounds for the player.

WHUFC
  I've been given some information from a friend who often gets this stuff right that man utd have agreed to sign roque santa cruz with fletcher going the other way and nani going on loan the rest of the fee he didn't know about.
Cmb
  Liverpool will not be signing David Villa, Roque Santa Cruz, Samuel Eto'o or Michael Owen.
They will sign Filip Holosko from Besiktas who is a Slovakian striker. The fee will be around 6 million euros and he will be a back–up to Torres as the 2 players are very similar.
  Premier league new boys Wolves are looking to sign Nigel Reo–Coker, Tom Huddleston, Peter Crouch and Clint Dempsey
  Rumours leaking out of goodison are that moyes will aim to have this squad next season and make a serious challenge at the top four.

1st 11

Tim Howard

Leighton Baines
Phil Jagielka
Joseph Yobo
Tony Hibbert

Steven Pienaar
Miguel Veloso – 10 million – Sporting CP
Tim Cahill
Marouane Fellaini
Morten Gamst Pederson – 5 million – Blackburn

Yakubu

Rest of the squad will include

Lars Stabaug
Jack Rodwell
Leon Osman
Marc Janko – 3.5 million – Red Bull Salzburg
Dan Gosling
Luis Nani – loan – Manchester United
Marco Pantelic – free transfer
Joey Barton – 3 million – Newcastle United


going out will be

Mikel Arteta and Joleon Lescott are both to go to manchester city for a combined fee of 34 million

Victor Anichebe – 4.5 million – Hull

James Vaughn – Loan – Preston or Rosenborg

this is the squad moyes wants for next season , spending under 22 million and reciveing just under forty. he may also may a last ditch attempt for jao moutinho of Sporting CP , meaning he will not move for joey barton , moutinho will cost 12 million .
  Have just heard that the City board are getting increasingly annoyed with Mark Hughes falling out with his players and will be sacked because he has lost the dressing room. He will be replaced with Rijkaard or Roberto Mancini.

If Rijkaard comes in expects him to sign the following
Eto'o for 19m
Marquez– 6m
Sneijder– 21m
Van Persie–17m
If Its Mancini that comes in he will bring in
Ibrahimovic– 35m
Chivu– 13m
Mauro Zarate– 9m
Montolivo–12m

There will also be a massive clear out expect the following to leave
Jo– Everton 8m
Ben Haim– Sunderland 4m
Michael Johnson– Villa 5m
Benjani– Wigan 4m
Petrov– Villareal 6m
Fernandes– Bolton 3m
Ball– Rangers 2m
Also a few youngsters will be allowed to leave.
  To Scouser Tommy,

Foreign players may be non–dom but they will be classed as Ordinarily Resident for tax purposes and therefore will pay the new super tax. I hope your not an accoutant. I will agree though that it won't deter players from coming to the Prem. Firstly 'cos we pay so much more than any other league (aside from Barca & Real) and secondly because, as you say, players have expensive and v.good accountants. To my knowledge they generally use employee benefit trusts to circumnavigate PAYE. . Christ, that was dull but accuracy is important.

Rumour wise expect Arsenal to sign an unknown french speaker from DR Congo in the summer – you heard it here first.

Up the Arse', bring on United
  Paul sturrock to resign due to ill health
  Rumour – the money from the Keane deal in January came in and out of LFC within a day. The money was sent to secure the summer transfer of a player, though do not know which one it is. any ideas on this web site?

  To the guy that asked about birmingham rumours.

They have enquired about two young Arsenal players on loan, Wilshere for a season and also Randall.
  Just thought id say that the walcott babel rumour, while a little far fetched, is NOT an impossibility– the reason being that babel is a gunners fan and walcott is a liverpool fan. If u remember back when walcott signed for arsenal he was heavily linked with liverpool, and vice versa with babel. Even tho at the moment walcott is used more regularly and looks a better player, babel clearly has volumes of potential and wenger is never one to shy away from a challenge if the final product is worth it. Also babel is best mates with van persie and would want much less than ade in wages. Wenger could afford to sell ade and still allow babel time to settle as arshavin, nasri rosicky or fabregas can all bang them in as second strikers. A deal of babel plus a bit of cash would suit all parties and arsenal and liverpool actually have a good relationship. The clincher is if u remember walcott was persuaded to go to arsenal by his dad who thought wenger would develop him better, but theo wanted a move to liverpool. Everyone knows babel loves arsenal. I may b living in dreamland, and personally i doubt itl happen but i wouldn't right this rumour off out of hand, its not as unbelievable as it sounds on the surface. DUCKULA ps does anyone else remember the liverpool owners saying that kaka was the one player they would break the bank for if he ever became available, yet here he is and theres not a peep from them! Typical!
  Wolves fans may or may not be happy that lee naylor is down in wolverhampton for talks over move from celtic. I saw him at three hammers golf complex on sunday 26th of april
  Man Utd News
Ronaldo is staying
Nani swap deal with wigan for Valencia
Tevez to Liverpool
Benzema coming to united
Sir alex will sell Campbell, Manucho and Martin to fund for a playmaker and a centre back possibly both being brazillians and young (douglas costa and dodo).
  Kevin Phillips of Birmingham City is in talks with Gary Johnson of Bristol City as the new striker to replace Dele Adebola.
  Rafa has stated that he has roughly 95 players on his shortlist but he will then narrow it down to a dozen or so:

David Wheater – £7million (interest last summer however,deal was put in place in january but Wheater wanted to stay to try and keep Boro up)
Ral Albiol – £6 million
Glen Johnson – £8 million
Kuba – £10 million
Mata – £15 million
David Silva – £20–25 million
Walcott – swap for Babel as Walcott is Liverpool fan and Wenger wanted Babel whilst at Ajax but was unprepared to pay £10 million plus, but this transfer looks unlikely as Wenger is a huge fan of Walcott
Barry – £8 million (Alonso STAYS)
Kun Agero – £20 million + Babel/Lucas
Higuan – £14–18 million
Llorente – £9 million
Santa Cruz – £14 million (back up for Torres)

Rafa will buy 4 at max but will definetly buy Wheater and Barry. . . .FACT
  Leicester will be signing:
David Stockdale or David Martin for £1million
Wayne Brown (Hull)
Youga (charlton)
Astrich Adjeravic (Liverpool)
Bailey (charlton
Dany N'Guessan (lincoln)
Jermaine Beckford (if leeds don't go up)
Adrew Surman or Adam Lallana (southampton)
Simon Cox (swindon)
They are looking to sell:
DJ Campbell (Any championship club)
Nicky Adams (Rochdale)
Barry Hayles (league 1 club)
Wesolowski (Dundee)
Trust me this will happen
  LFC Rumour

My mate's heard some interesting gossip coming out of Melwood. Middlesboro's situation is alerting Rafa, either Downing or Tuncay if they get relegated.

Three positions need strengthing RB, RW and CM and Robbie Keane needs replacing:

RB Glen Johnston (a clause in his new contract he signed in Jan 09 that if a bid of a set amount is received Portsmouth will accept)

RW Ashley Young

CM Gareth Barry (you hope it is to play alongside Alonso and not instead of)

CF Listen up Kevin Davies of Bolton!
