Barcelona to sign Man Utd's Christian Ronaldo by the first week of August. A fee of 28 million pounds hs been agreed by both clubs.Heard from a man utd office staff at a manchester restaurant.
Portsmouth are set to sign David Nugent from Preston in a £3.75 million deal. The striker could be 1 of 2 new strikers heading for Fratton Park - Anelka or Collins John could be the other. Expect the Stilian Petrov saga to reach its conclusion this weekend, with the Celtic player set to undergo a medical with Portsmouth in the next 72 hours, prior to a £5 million move on Monday. Harry Redknapp will also step up his persuit for a winger and will make a move for Dean Whithead or even James Milner. He will then look to conclude a transfer for Portugese ace, Manuel Fernandes in a £10 million deal, when he recovers from injury in about 3 - 4 weeks time. Harry Redknapp would also like to bring in Nijitap Geremi from Chelsea alongside Sylvain Distin from Man City and Ryan Nelson from Blackburn but he looks to make 5 - 6 more signings prior to the end of the transfer window. He is also after a goalkeeper and Jerzy Dudek is also a possibility. I would thing they would be Nugent, Anelka, Petrov, Dudek and Fernandes as well as possibly Geremi.
Wolves manager Mick McCarthey looks set to replace Paul Ince with Everton midfielder, Lee Carsley. Simon Davies or James McFadden, Allesandro Pistone, Andy Van Der Meyde and Gary Naysmith could also be on their way out of Goodison Park. David Moyes is looking to bring in 2 more signings - 1 could be Maniche or Malbranque.
Liam Miller is set to sign for Sheff United for £1m. ---King Peasant---
The only player that will be involved with Newcastle and West Ham will be James Milner from Newcastle to West Ham for £3million. Pardew has stated that none of the strikers will be leaving So keep dreaming Toon fans. Also West Ham are likely to sign Robert Green in the next couple of weeks from Norwich for about £1.5 - £2.5 million
you newcastle fans make me laugh incase u havent noticed WEST HAM r NOT a selling club anymore as we have no reason 2 b! no striker will b leaving the hammers this transfer window! expect pardew 2 make a bid 4 unwanted midfielder danny murphy nd goalkeeper ricardo as competition 4 carroll
New Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has drawn up a shortlist of new faces he wants to lift the club back into the Premiership. Arsenal striker Jeremie Aliadiere, who spent four months on loan at Molineux at the end of last season, has emerged as a top target to join the club on a permanent basis. Sunderland defender Stephen Wright is another player that McCarthy likes from his time with the Black Cats and could make an offer.
Rangers have landed filip sebo. he will sign by next wednessday. A move for a right-back from spain is also on the cards. Malcom and bernard out . Ricksen appears to be on his way as well.
carrick is about to sign as i'm sure u all kno.........mascherano becoming a big possibility with united about to offer 16m......tevez is could come as he is around the same asking price as torres and gabi heinze is trying convince his 2 argentinian counterparts to join united
SAF has been playing a game with other clubs through the media, by saying he would be happy to start the season with what he has and such. when in truth he is about to tie up 3 more deals with 2 to come. the first 3 are carrick (as most know), mascherano and tevez are both due to sign next week. the other 2 he is after are toni and simao are also on his hit list. there are also 2 more players but SAF may wait until jan or even next summer they are sahin and rafinha. so cheer up united fans SAF knows what his doing.
I have just driven outside white hart lane on my way to work and who did i see getting out of a car and walking into white hart lane.....? David Trezeguet - don't be surprised if spurs announce this huge capture in the coming week!
Stop dreaming magpie fans!!! Dean Ashton is probably the best english striker aside from Owen and Rooney so why would West Ham sell him???
Furthermore, why would he want to go to a club that finished BELOW the one he's currently playing at last season. Although must admit it's looking like Harewood is on his way out, probably Villa, Blackburn, N'castle or unlikely but Spurs. C'mpon the Hammers!!!
Woodgate back to NUFC next season on loan with a view to permanent move.
Spurs also interested in him if King decides to move on.
Either way, Woodgate in the Prem soon.
Charlton are set to bid for Routledge of Spurs next week, also there are plans to tie up deals for Marvin Elliot. Traore is a done deal and will sing on loan with a view to a permanent transfer. Dowie is also looking to strengthen his backroom staff by signing Carl Leaburn the ex-player as coach, as well ex-number 2 at Palace Kit Symoms
It turns out man u have more money than everyone thought. The RVN transfer will add to this. Michael Carrick is a certanty. Fergie has made a bid for guti of real madrid. To replace Rvn, he is set to make a bid for Nicols Anelka. Expect a bid for Lyons Fred. That waster christiano ronaldo will be sold to valencia for big money an replaced with aron lennon. Stewart downing will sign also.
Luton Town will follow up the signing of Adam Boyd, by either securing Neil Mellor on loan from Liverpool or Matt Derbyshire on loan from Blackburn.
Liverpool will raise money for the villa deal by selling Dudek to west ham, Krompkamp to west ham, traore to charlton, kewell to atletico madrid and luis carcia to Osasuna. Zapator is still being linked and mark van bommel is a possibility. And has Alves signed? As rafa would say "sure"
ac milan will sign zlatan, buffon and kolo toure !!!!
I can't say too much,but I know a lover of someone high in the Old Trafford hierachy. She being the best friend of my sister has told her the following---
Carrick will be joining us for £14.5m,with another £2.5m if United win the European champions league in the next 3 years.Or another £1.5m if we win the premiership this season!
United are trying to buy Mascarano and have offered £16m,they are willing to go up to £22m.
Foster will stay at OT as will Rossi(no loans)The West Brom goalkeeper will not be signed
Silvestre could go to Lyons, but only if they offer £5m+. Fletcher will go to Celtic for £2M and Miller to Leeds for £1m.We may well not buy another striker until next season,unless we could get Trezeguet, or Tevez for £12m-£15. More then likely we will not buy a striker until next year,then for £30 million Torres will at last become a red. 2006/7 team
Rio (Wes Browne)
Plymouth Argyle News!!!!
After his assault Chris Zebrowski will be sold to Shef Wed as Sturrock is a known admirer. With Cocko reurning to argyle as part of the deal, with the owls getting £25k cash as well.
From an inside source! word of kemp!

RVN - RMadrid 13.2
I hope they dont sign either toni or tevez...i hope vicente will come 2 replace Giggs but probably in january.
More Arsenal News
Arsenal will not be doing any more signings until the Ashley cole drama is soughted out.
Ashley cole will be sold to chelsea for around 22million or 10million and arsenal wiil get Wright Phillips.
If we dont get Wright Phillips the money will be used to buy yaya Toure (he will be bought even if we do get wright phillips) and a defender. an english player i persume. Davies unlikely.
but like carrick going to man united deal, you never know.
Reports eminating out of Germany suggesting that Liverpool are in talks with Miroslav Close.
OK, latest from St.James Park.....
Freddy and Roeder were away Thursday thru to Friday sorting through some transfer targets - the main reason more players havent arrived yet is the extortionate values being slapped on them by their clubs.
Looking to be on the way out -
ELLIOTT - FREE to Sunderland
BOUMSONG - SWAP to Juventus, 3MIL to Marseille
HARPER - SWAP to West Ham
BUTT - LOAN to Sheff United
KLOSE - 6MIL+
ZEBINA - SWAP involving BOUMSONG to Juventus
UPSON - 2MIL+
WRIGHT PHILLIPS - LOAN with option of permanent deal
BRIDGE - 3MIL
IAQUINTA - 4MIL+ future fees
With Carrick out of the picture, it may be Hossam Ghali, who has been in supurb from for Spurs in pre-seaosn that takes over the defnsive midfilder role.
Chimbonda will move to Spurs and more than likely for £6 million, however, they may be able to swing the transfer to less after Wigan rescently signed in a Crystal Palace player. Possibly seeing Ret Ziegler moving the opposite direction?
Downign should make the move to Notth London as in par with Spurs, policy of "young british talent" using the money gained from the Carrick Transfer
Liverpools paul anderson will next week complete a years long loan deal to swindon town next week as rafa benitas wants him to taste more first team football instead of reserve team football for the liverpool youngster.
Celtic - The TRUTH !!!!!!
Some of the CFC postings recently are pants and just rehashes of Daily record stories or E Tims rip offs. Jan Vinegar of Clydebank and Timmyshrek ain't coming . This is just spin from the Celtic board following on from Wednesdays disasterous showing against the Man U third team. Neither will cone to Paradiseand the same goes for Bridge and Gravesen. Bottom line -there is NO money . What there was has been spent and the Petrov dough ( when it arrives ) has largely been accounted for. A left back will be signed but for a modest fee or on a Bosman but only when sulky Stan has gone. On the positive front the under 19 stars ( Ferry, Cuthbert, Fox, and Grant ) will also be brought into the first team squad.
Manchester United have made a loan bid for zlatan Ibrahimovic. This is because carlos tevez will join next summer. He want one more season in south america with corinthians and this agreement will suit juve too. Carrick looks a done deal and I have been told fergie wants real madrids guti to partner him. Guti will cost as little as 3 mill as madrid continue their rebuilding. A shock signing could be portugals goalkeeper ricardo, i dont think he would be welcomeed with open arms though. Theres also a rumour that utd will go for jonathon woodgate as well. Again, he might be sold on the cheap. Christiano Ronaldo looks like going to valencia and fergie might try and get aron lennon in a big money deal.
I can reveal why fernando torres has turned down man utd... Because he is waiting for liverpool. It seems to be common knowledge that liverpool are near to securing investment, which will see a big bid for torres. This will include luis garcia and harry kewell(who took his holiday in madrid and was spotted looking at houses). Torres has started taking English lessons and asked xabi alonso to find him a house. Xabi alonso and pepe reina begged him to join during the world cup and it looks like it worked. A deal mighn't be done until late august though.
Gareth Southgate is ready to sell stewart Downing to man u for big money so he can rebuild his squad. He will sign Steed Malbronque and a deal for robert huth will finally go through. He will enter the race to sign SWP, although it looks like a team who are in euorpe will get him. He will also try and take geremi back to the riverside. To replace Stewart Downing he will sign luis Boa Morte.
Newcastle will sign Wayne bridge for 3m, S-W-P on Loan, Miroslav Klose for 6m foolowing their recent signing of Damien Duff. They shall sell:Harper,,Moore,Boumsong,Elliott,Babayaro, Dyer,Faye,Butt,Solano and Luque to raise money for signings.
Given,Carr,Bramble,Taylor,Bridge,SWP,Parker, N'Zogbia,Klose,Owen and Duff will be the starting line up with Krul,Huntington,Emre,Milner and Ameobi on the Bench. When Owen is injured Emre goes into centre midfield. #
I know a guy who holidays in Lake Garda every summer, who happened to get talking to none other than David Trezuguet. Believe it or not, he has had talks with Bolton. I'm not a fan, but it looks like big Sam has maybe done it again!
RFC NEWS !!!
Anyone who thinks that the PLG era is totally about unknown signings for the future is mistaken . The parimony shown thus far is simply to allow bids for 3 players. These are being saved for the week leading up to the second game of the season. Don't know why exactly but seems related to some complicated financing deal. Anyway they are ; Sol Campbell ( Will accept £39k a week as loves Glasgow's City of Culture vibe ) , out of favour PSG winger Jean Sept-une ( probably £ 2 million Euros ) and disgruntled NUFC full back S. Carr to fill problem RFB position . Hutton will go , along with Prso , Ferguson ( yes , you heard me right ), Rae, Klos, Marvin, Novo, and other stragglers as the French revolution sweeps IP. Good luck Celts - ya're gonnae need it !! P.S ;PLG will not ignore Scottish talent expect bid of circa £ 50 K for Partick Thistle youth Charles Charnley.
GR is looking at Bridge AND SWP! Duff and Parker has told them they will be playing first team football down the north east should they sign. GR, still looking for a CB and a FW and will try and speak to Sol Campbell because he thinks he can do something boum couldn't do. Finally GR is willing to let Milner and Harper go in swap for Marlon H. If anyone was around the Chroincle building today and heard this please reply.

arsenal will sign alou diarra and a defensive midfielder, there is no need 4 any more attackin players, remember gooners dont get worked up bou arsenal not signin 2 many players coz''wenger knows'' . also chelseas big name signings will b flops in da premiership like sheva nd ballack.as 4 cole i hope he goes coz there is no place at arsenal 4 an ungrateful prat..we ave flamini and armando troare at lb 2.,,,,,,young players comin 2 de emirates r nuri sahin as he wants 2 follow his idol rosicky nd fran merida they will b signed in da summer or in january....remember ''wenger knows''
i'd like to say how true'r words have neva bin spoken thn frm the man u fan yeaterday. i fear fergie has lost control and man utd's ship is sinking before it leaves the dock. our only possible signing seems to be that of michael carrick, and we're going to pay well over the odds for him(15-18mill). i was shocked and sort of outraged this week when ferguson came out and said he wasnt bothered if no players were signed, he also added that he didnt think the fans would be to dissappointed. what fans has he been talking to?we have some great centre mids coming through in dave jones and darron gibson but they just aren't ready. hopefully the rumours on here about mascherano will be true as he is a top player and would improve the side greatly. dont see the great urgency for an attacker but am very worried about the midfield. hey maybe their waitin till next year when lampard is available providing he doesnt sign a new deal it is reported that he could leave chelsea for under 5 million.
Portsmouth are set to turn to patrick kluivert in their search for new strikers. They want three new strikers and I believe kluivert will be one. They will bid for birminghams mikael forssel next week. Next on the shopping list is barcelona's Maxi Lopez. Expect a bid for swanseas lee trundle to back up these 3 main strikers. Matthew upson and geremi will be brought in to tighten up the defence. Wayne Routlidge will be bought on a permanent deal. Steed Malbronque and tommy graveson have been linked too. Jerzy dudek will also join.
Alex ferguson will look to replace his ageing stars this season. Stewart Downing will be brought in as an understudy to ryan giggs. Carrick is to replace keane and guti will be brought in to replace paul scholes. Trabelsi will be brought in to backup neville and woodgate or yobo will partner rio. Ibrahimovic or trezuguet will be brought in on loan.
WEST HAM TRANSFER NEWS....
A mate of mine (an agent) has told me that West Ham are in a shock move to land Edgar Davids from Spurs. West Ham are looking to bolster their midfield whilst Tottenham have recently signed Didier Zakora. The fee is believed to be around £1.5million with the Dutchman stating that he would love to move to East London following allegations of a fall out with manager Martin Jol....You heard it here first!
I have a sneeky feeling that the speculation about the krafts takeover as Aug 1st will be the date that its announced, is not true.
A much better idea is Sept 1st when the transfer window is closed.
Just imagine if we came out with the fact we have just been taken over on Aug 1st and that we have got 190 mill from somewhere and newanfield is about to be built,
villa/Kuyt will be more like 25 mill instead of 10-12 mill
alaves 18 mill instead of 10-12.
these are so close to being finalised...
