does any everton fan know any more about the nolan situation because earlier in transfer market he was seen being shown around goodison park????!!!! Personally i think we have about 8mill more to spend and you watch we will and we will have extra for selling players! Naysmith-celtic for 2mill and possibly davies offloaded!! But moyes needs to kepp some players so we build up a squad!! so if any everton fan knows about nolan then can you tell me!ta ta

Can we stop it now with the ridiculous Wednesday and United rumours.. it's getting embarrasing, why don't you just say which team you hate first and then the rumour you've really heard? it'll save you time. I've heard for sure that Warnock is in a three way battle to sign two Ghana players, a striker and a midfielder, who remain affordable for now. If they beat Brazil (very unlikely) the price may alter.

To all you people who think that Man U or Arsenal are going to sign Mascherano and Tevez, how stupid are you.

Abromvich has links with Corinthians and would never let them go to one of Chelseas rival clubs. They will both end up at Chelsea. Tevez will sign this summer and Mascherano next summer. Other Chelsea buys are Cannavaro (Juve), Ashley Cole (Arsenal) and Fernando Torres (A Madrid). Robben is not going anywhere. Duff is going to Tottenham. Gallas is not leaving and nor is Cudcini.

Stop all the rumours about Torres, Tevez and Mascherano because who has all the spending power and can raise the price at any moment they want!

CHELSEA!!!!!!!!! Come on you blues!!!

Arsenal signing:

Gianluigi Buffon

Curtis Davis

Javier Mascherano

Liverpool will sign Dirk Kuyt from Feyenoord for around £10m in the next week. Rafael Benitez will pull out of the deal for Daniel Alves by the end of the week if Sevilla keep asking for more money.Liverpool will also have Mark Gonzalez's work permit, Fabio Aurelio will also sign from Valencia once the transfer window has opened on July 1st. If Benitez gives up on Alves , the players linked will be Mauro Camonrnesi, Jermane Pennant, Steed Malbranque, Dario Srna, Joaquin, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Damien Duff and Pablo Aimar.

newcastle will bid for heskey (4.5m) and one of ashton (10m)/kuyt (12m) or anelka (??m).

man u linked with every man and his dog but just expect one defensive midfielder - gattuso bein the one they want but wont get and a right back to replace neville after/during this season. van nistlerooy will depart to ac milan/bayern (10m).

liverpool will sign alves (9.5m) - rafa wont be messed around tho and will bid for dario snra (6m)if he is, aurelio (free), zapater (4m) or prieto (3m), paletta (2m) done, bellamy (6m) done, gonzalez loan return, saviola (5m). paul anderson will come into first team reckoning. rafa will go for huntelaar (10m) in january when cisse moves on and work on a move for david villa over the coming year.

the special one will sign any overpaid, overvalued player he wants to stifle any young talent they may have as it is his last chance to win the champions league before they bring in someone who can actually build a team instead of buying one.

ddub.

Manchester United midfielder Cristiano Ronaldo will hand in an official transfer request today (27/6/06). He is eager to leave Old Trafford and move to La Liga, so I'd expect Barcelona, Real Madrid and Valencia to make bids. M!

arsenal will make a bid for fernando torres after the world cup with there money from the champions league run and arsenals board giving an extra £20m of transfer funds. they will also be signing yaya toure or javier mascherano, curtis davies and gigi buffon if juve get relegated.

I find it very very amusing tht Rangers fans think tht Ronaldo and ZZ will b joining them. PLG is only using Rangers as a stepping club and will only b ther 4 this season after he is beatin by Celtic to the league title !!!!! Celtic will sign Gravesen and Scott brown to tighten up the midfield. Kadlec is definetly signing 4 £1.5 m and on their way out wul b Virgo, Camara, Thompson and Marshall (on loan)

Mon the Hoops !!! Hail Hail !!!

Arsenal are NOT INTERESTED in Torres, fact. To those insisting the player has already signed, way off the mark. Arsenal are interested in Saviola, Kuyt and Klose - CONFIRMED. The only Premiership teams in the race for Torres are Chelsea and Man U, and when Fergie wants a striker he usually gets his man. As Sir Bobby once said, "Sir Alex loves buying strikers". Carrick has been identified for the holding role, NOT a Scholes replacement.

Young will be a whufc player in the coming days we will also buy a keeper and pards wants another defender as back up to our young guns.

PLYMOUTH ARGYLE will name Ian Holloway as their new manager on Friday. They are just waiting for him to agree a severence deal with QPR. Mick McCarthy was interviewed but wanted a £250k salary and £2m to spend on players... plank!! Joe Royal was also interview while Paul Sturrock could not be tempted back to Home Park. I work at Home Park.

all the rangers fans on this ite are a joke!! your chairman has just told you that the days of money spending and big wages are over and still yu say ronaldo4 4 mill!zidane as coach!clement 4 1mill and brown 4 another 1mill.face it no money.rangers will sign makhater n'diaye though.celtic will sign kadlec hopefully kronjcar and carlton cole.HAIL HAIL

Spurs signings:

Chimbonda, Zakora, Berbatov (already), Carlton Cole, Duff, Curtis Davies...

Spurs offloads:

Defoe, Murphy, Reid, Naybet, Gardner, Davids...

everton still have a lot of ins and outs to be decided everton's tim cahill is not moving on joseph yobo is set to sign a new contract but in the mean time arsenal are looking for a replacment for fenerbahce bound sol campbell who is taking a 75'000 grand a week on a 3 year deal very seriously.andy van der meyde is not moving to ac milan or juventus he says he is happy at everton and wants to prove himself in the epl.I heard on this website that james beattie will leave everton for blackburn newcastle or charlton behave yourselfs! everton are still looking for back up for thier midfield with simon davies set to join bolton blackburn or reading for 1.5million kevin kilbane will leave this summer to join his former club preston or burnley for 1million.lee carlsley will join bolton because he has not been the same since his knee problem that kept him out of most of last season he will join bolton on a free.everton will sign didi hamann as he is not keen on a move to bolton he will be good back up for phil neville or neville back up for him! everton will want to one of these attacking midfielder with the sale of davies and kilbane.everton will put a bid of 5million for fulham's transfer listed steed malbranque he is already in contact with man city and westham also interested are newcastle.everton manager david moyes seems to prefer stilan petrov from celtic who are asking of a unrealistic fee and want james mcfadden.celtic have yesterday reject a bid from new money bags portsmouth celtic are very reluctant to sell because petrov sais he to play england put i believe he signed a new contract at celtic last jan and is under contract till 2010! perhaps celtic fans can help me out on the petrov and mcfadden situation if there is one.also everton are monitoring ghana star sulley muntari who has sad he wants to play for man utd.If james mcfadden does move on everton will not sign another centre foward with the breakthrough of victor anichebe and the almost return to fitne

ss of the prem's youngest goalscorer james vaughan. other players leaving everton are dickie wright watford willing to pay 2.5million also gary naysmith is hoping for a return to scotland celtic most likly. also sandro pistone is likly to join the club he was going to sign for when he was released last year by everton was to sign for lecce but then you know the rest!

I have read with interest the rumours / stories on this website about people being linked to certain Scottish SPL clubs. Two more recent rumours that I have heard are Zidane to Rangers and Nedved to Celtic. Both these players are in the later stages of their careers, and are actively pursuing the UEFA coaching badge. To do this badge, you must spend a period of time coaching outwith your own nation. Both these players, plus others such as Alan Shearer, are doing their coaching at the SFA's Largs complex. As part of their badge they must help coach with a side within that nation. I have it on good authority that ZZ will help the Rangers youngsters and PN will help out the Celtic youngsters. They are not signing as players or permanent coaches, it is just so that they can get their qualification.

Duncine

chelsea will not sign tevez this year, chelsea will sign lahm and maybe torres

Newcastle will not be signing Dirk Kuyt after he failed to impress toon scouts during the world cup Roeder wasn't willing to rely on his Erdivisie (dutch league sorry bout spelling) form after seeing how good Mateij Kezman Looked for PSV and how badly he flopped for Chelsea. Roeder will be turning his attention to Dean Ashton and Darren Bent aswell as a couple of budget strikers. Hasselbaink had thought to have been 1 of these but Roeder has denied any move for 'boro's fat Eddie Murphy. will people please stop submitting next seasons league table. no1 can predict that. toon

i can reveal the 4 men real madrid presidential candidate Lorenzo Sanz has pre-contracts with the 2 from inter are cruz and zanetti. the portugese player is carvalho and the biggest shock of all is the englishman £16m deal for darren bent. ronaldo will also go back to inter.

Totenham to buy DaMarcus Beasley from PSV

liverpool will bid for maxi rodriguez to resolve their right wing problem

WEST HAM WILL WIN THE UEFA CUP!!!!

To the idiots who say ajax are selling huntelaar to man utd or liverpool or watever, you are all wrong. He is their record transfer fee and is the next big star. Another 2 seasons at ajax will do him good. Also, ajax will get davids on a free and dennis bergkamp as a coach.Ajax is also not selling rosenberg.

arsenal are apparently in talks wiv buffon and saviola's agents over possible transfers while trabelsi has been offered a contract. i think all may go through as trabelsi is out of contract and was close to signing for us last season, while saviola is out of favour at barca although buffon depends on the juventus situation. i believe we will also sign curtis davies but that may be it. several players will obviously go out on loan.

2006/07 TEAM:

Buffon, Lehmann, Almunia, Poom

Lauren, Trabelsi, Toure, Campbell, Senderos, Davies, Cole, Clichy, Eboue, Hoyte, Djourou

Ljungberg, Gilberto, Fabregas, Reyes, Rosicky, Hleb, Song, Flamini, Diaby

Henry, Van Persie, Adebayor, Walcott, Aliadiere, Saviola or Torres

Inglethorpe has been signed up as Tottenham's U18 coach but is being groomed as a long term replacement for Martin Jol!

Zokora will sign for £8mill in the next 2 days with Carrick leaving for £14 mill to Man U and there is a possiblilty that Richardson might also be used as part of the deal because it suits both clubs. If the Richardson transfer does not happen then Tottenham could wrap up a £12 mill deal for Duff, Geremi and Carlton Cole from Chelsea in the hext week. Defoe likely to be sold to make more funds available. Pourtsmouth have bid around £12mill which is still on the table but Newcastle might bid for him to replace the injured Owen. Liverpool could also show an interest but Tottenham would prefer to sell him abroad because they feel they could get a better deal if he was sold to Madrid, Barcelona etc etc. To replace Defoe Spurs are in talks with Inter Milan over Martins and a fee of £10 mill is being talked about. If this does not happen Spurs could go and look at Dirk Kuyt again or could even come in with a late bid for Torres but he is already in advanced talks with Man Utd.

ARSENAL NEWS Sorry all to Man Utd and Chelsea fans but it is being reported in Brazil and Argentina that Corinthians have agreed a £14million fee with Arsenal for Javier Mascherano.The deal will be finalised after the World Cup and involves Corinthians having first option on Gilberto Silva.AW will also swoop for Dirk Kuyt(feyenoord)in the next 2 weeks for a fee of around £10million.As for Gianluigi Buffon it is likely as Juventus still owe Arsenal £7million for Patrick Vieira,which means the deal would consist of £12million in cash plus Arsenal wiping out the debt?Curtis Davies(WBA),Hatem Trabelsi(ajax)and Nuri Sahin(borussia dortmund)are also targets.Fernando Gago(boca juniors)will arrive during January transfer window.

Ian Dowie is set to move into the transfer market with a bang within the next few days. He will add numbers to the squad starting with Sidwell (who will definitely sign before the weekend!) and four others will quickly follow. These four will be all internationals and cover each area of the pitch.

Am a Rangers fan and am hearing all this nonsense about Ronaldo coming to the gers!....Thats just not gonna happen as PLG was A TV pundit for French TV and was slagging off Ronaldo during the World Cup for being so over weight and unfit and considering PLG drills in to his players the importance about fitness its just not gonna happen. However clement will sign by the end of the week and Elmander is very intrested in a move, with Webster another target off PLG's.

I have been tipped off that West Ham will step up their interest in bringing Jermaine Defoe back. Tottenham are keen to sell and West Ham are putting a package together which will suit both parties. Pardew wants him back as he see's him as a brilliant player to play with Ashton and is willing to take the flack from the Hammers fans to prove it will be a correct buy.

Liverpool will not hijack bayern's deal with Podolski because he has already completed the move. LFC will sign Alves, Aurelio and Zapater. No Torres and no Kuyt because Bellamy is to play along side Crouch.

ON NOW LETS GETTIN SOME THINGS STRIGHT I AM A MANUTD FAN AND SOME RUMOURS I HEAR DAT MY DADS THIS AND HE KNOWS THIS GUY ITS ALL RUBBISH I COULD SAY THAT I KNOW SIR ALEX FERGUSONS SON BUT IT AIENT TRU NOW IS IT.

Also he said he wants two strikers the first will be collins john who has impressed him the next will be jimmy flyod hasselbaink who he will use as cover until micheal owen is fit again.

Manchester City will sign 4-5 more players throughout this summer.

Steve Sidwel of reading Fc will sign for 2mil, Quinyton Fortune will sign within the next week (free transfer), wonderkid Samir Nasri will sign on a loan deal after the world cup, from marseille, and Hleder Postiga, maybe for 3 million, or posibly season-long loan..

WATCH OUT FOR CITY NEXT YEAR

Arsenal will not sign Torres, as he is too expensive, or Klose, as he is too old for a Wenger signing. Instead, Wenger will sign Kuyt as a replacement for Bergkamp, as he revealed that he was intrested in kuyt during the dutch game on french tv. Arsenal will also sign a center back, probably davies or possibly thuram! ManU will sign carrick for 15mil, as tottenham has bought zokora to replace him. Tottenham will also buy wilhelmson from anderlecht and move lennon to the left to solve that problem. Torres in the end will either stay at athletico or move to italy.

Big Manchester United fan. NEWS JUST IN!

United are Trailing young Sweedish talent Mikel Trondbourg, plays for a team called Milm or Malmo. He's 17yrs old & currently be looked at by Lazio, Arsenal, and a few spanish teams. But mark my words if he opts 4Old Trafford premiership Beware! More to follow.

MANCHESTER UNITED-you heard it here first...

We will sign Roman Riquelme from Villarreal for approx 12.5m as Ferguson went out to Germany and scouted him in training just before the World Cup.

We will also get Michael Carrick for 14.25m as Tottenham will sign Didier Zokora for 6.5m as Jol liked him in the World Cup.

We will get Spain star Fernando Torres as Chelsea will bid 20m (+Drogba p/ex) fro him and he will reject as he doesn't want to be second best. Man Utd will offer 25.5m and he will accept personal terms.

Gabriel Heinze will retian left back spot over Evra due to his performance in the World Cup.

~~~~~~~~~ARSENAL TRANSFERS~~~~~~~~~~

For all Gooners out there, prepare for a very happy close season and an even happier season.

Arsenal transfers are as follows:

Lehmann will be heading back to Borrusia Dortmond in a Lehmann+2m for N.Sahin deal, Lehmann will accept this as he realises that once G.Buffon has signed for 9m(Juve owe 10m on PV so total transfer is 19m) he will be no:2 and Lehmann does not wish to jeopardise his status as Germany no:1. S.Campbell will be sold in the region of 4-6m and P.Cygan will also leave to Lille for 500k, Campbells Replacement IS P.Senderos so please dont expect Davies, what you can expect is A.Ferdinand to sign for around 5m. Lauren is being touted to a few Spanish clubs i.e. Sevilla, Athletico and yes Barcelona who do have a problem in the RB position expect the fee to be around 5m+Merdia if sold to Barca, his replacement will be Trabelsi(Bosman free), Alumina will be sold for 500k to a La Liga team. Poom will stay as back up to Buffon with youth Italian GK V.Mannone breaking through as no:3, Ljungberg may stay or he may be sold to Barca or R.Mad for 8m, it really depends on AFC ins and R.Mad getting C.Ronaldivingallthetimeo from MUFC, Reyes will be sold to R.Mad for around 20m(maybe more depends on Spains WC progress which always adds a few mil on players) or he may be part of a D.Beckham deal(straight swap Reyes)(who really wants to live in England again, well Posh does anyhow, and Posh loves London, and DB is great friends with Cole and Henry so he could well be tempted), AW has been watching O.Hargreaves for 8m, who I personally think would be an excellent signing as he is young(25), English and his perfomances for England have been superb in the WC, no other CM will be bought as we have Fabregas, Gilberto, Flamini, Diaby, Song and soon Hargreaves, Adebayor will be sold on possible to NUFC who AFC are trying to strike a deal for Michael Owen, AFC feel this could be a great bit of business as NUFC will get the F.A's compo(6m) for Owen and will also get Adebayor(7m) and 8m for Owen, Making a total of 21m for an injured player which NUFC will see as fantastic business and will allow th

em to get some new players Adebayor will be one for free plus the 14m from Owens transfer/Compo, you may all say why would AW does this, I'll tell you why, because Overmars played his best football for AFC after similar injury all because of fantastic medical staff AFC have so AW feels that by January he WILL have the ulitmate ST force in Henry/Owen, between now and then AFC have Henry, V.persie, Lupoli, Bendtner and Walcott to subsidide Owens void.AW will also sign some more youth talent as he feels he can get round fifas homegrown rule buy buying young and feeding through youth ranks he has set aside around 10m for these transfers. Now AW has always been the best coach in England as well as the most shrewd business man in world football so his total spending will be very small considering he has over 30m to spend.

Sell ons= 40m + 30m transfer kitty=70m

Bring ins=32m = 38m left(20m towards Stadium + 18m for january/summer07 transfers)

Arsenal Team 06/07: GK:Buffon(1),Poom(21),Mannone(31) RB:Trabelsi(2),Eboue(12) LB:Cole(3),Clichy(22) CB:Toure(28),Senderos(6),Djourou(26),Ferdinand(5), RM:Beckham(7),Hleb(13) LM:Rosicky(23),Sahin(20),Larsson(29) CM:Fabregas(15),Gilberto(19),Hargreaves(8),Diaby(4),Flamini(16),Song(17) ST:Henry(14),Owen(10),V.Persie(11),Walcott(32),Lupoli(24),Bendtner(27)

petrov will go saturday to portsmouth for just over 4m in a cut price deal. celtic will sign kadlec but might put the initial bid to 1.6m with 400,000 more if celtic getn through group stages in the champs league. also on good authority is that carlton cole is being considered as a replacement to hartson. kranjcar will not sign but i can reveal that there has been contact between denilson and celtic but are afraid of high transfer demands but are defo looking for wingers. RANGERS SHOULD FORGET GUILY AND RONALDO BUT CAN HAVE ZIDANE WHEN HE GETS HIS NEW HIP!!!

News in italy is that inter milan could be set to make a bid for Christiano Ronaldo. If this is the case and they end up getting him they will not sign Luca Toni although apparently he has verbally agreed to sign after the World Cup. Also Grosso has already signed and there could be a possibility of Ronaldo joinin from Real as he no longer wants to stay.

Oh n Italy did deserve to win yesterday, it was never a red card n it WAS a penalty

Dundee United considering a move for Ayr United's goalscoring midfielder and club captain Raymond Logan, who was playing non-league football a season ago! United boss Craig Brewster admires Logan's attitude and workrate, but could face competition from Caley Thistle, St. Johnstone and - inevitably - Gretna, all of whom's managers have spoken with club scouts about the player.

I am a big Rangers fan and as much as i like to read the rumours about Pie Man (Ronaldo) , Guilly , sol "mid-life crisis" Campbell & Zizou heading to Ibrox i just cant get myself excited at this prospect. Can you imagine a december night in Inverness with Ronaldo running out in the light blue of the Bears alongside Novo & Bob Malcolm????

Yes Rangers will sign Clement & Elmander within the week with the trio of youngsters on trial currently at murray park but these big names look less likely each day as we hear the transfer funds has gone from £15 mil to £10 mil to £7 mil with 1 or 2 players being signed for a maximum fee of around £2 mil.

more likely transfer targets for Rangers are govou from Lyon, Rossi & Pique from Man Utd(loan) Poss loan for Essien (for first team football,worked under PLG @ Lyon) Saviola was a possibility but due to his recent performances thats gone out the window.

As good as the rumour team sounds, on the opening game Vs the Well it will be a very different, cheaper line-up.

The revolution will be great but it will be a longer process than some think as we are building a team that will dominate scottish football for,hopefully, the next ten years.

PLG and Mr Murray have a vision and we are just entering @ ground level where the foudations of a great team are being layed for the future.

THE FUTURES BRIGHT, THE FUTURE IS LIGHT BLUE!!!

READING have agreed a club record fee for Derby County winger/striker TOMMY SMITH. A deal is close and the player will hook up with his new team mates in early July for preseason.

TOM HUDDLESTONE is also set to complete a 3 year deal to join the Royals. I am told though that 'wages could be a problem'

VILLA TO LIVERPOOL

I know what people are thinking straight away and trust me as a mad Fulham fan im getting a bit scared.... I work for ITV as what is known in the business as a goather (make tea and mke sure everyone is happy) well whilst waiting for tonights match i saw Terry Venables speaking to Ron Yeats senior Liverpool Scout they were talking about Alonso and Garcia... Then went on to the subject of Villa and said 70% chance of him wearing a liverpool shirt next season...as well did you see who Villa went to when he scored his goal non other than one of his best mates Reina you may not believe but as i said as fulham fan if this is true Unlucky to the rest of the premiership i believe probably the best striker at this moment

Newcastle team next season:
