Sorry Gers fans, don't expect any major spending. Apart from 3 million for Brown of Hibs, Walter Smith will have to sell to buy. The usual suspects will go bringing in some money and freeing up wages (bye bye Klos, Prso, Novo, Rae, N'Daiye, Buffell, Sebo, Sionko, Weir and possibly Papac and Svenson) and say hello to Sonck (Bor M'Gladbach), McCulloch, Naismith (Killie) and an offer for Berra of Hearts as well as Wattie scouring the BOsman/ loan markets

BERGKAMPWORLD Arsenal will sign both Franck Ribery and Samir Nasri from Marseille in the Summer!It will be a deal that will cost Arsenal around £20million. Craig Gordon will also join as the long term replacement for Jens Lehmann.
Fabrice Muamba, Jeremie Aliadiere, Freddie Ljunberg, Arturo Lupoli and Kerrea Gilbert will be sold along with Jose Antonio Reyes!
Expect one shock arrival at the Emirates which could be Jonathan Woodgate? Havard Nordtveit and John Bostock will arrive at the Academy.
Man Utd Rumours=
Man Utd have generally gone for young, up and coming players which can go into the United style of playing, with this in mind they will target players such as Kerlon, Anderson, Nordveigt (although Arsenal might beat them to the chase) Bale, Nasri, Garay, Richards, Nani and Moutinho. Other players that United will attempt to bring in are the Ajax trio Huntelaar, heintiga and Sneijder as well as a already established striker such as Obi Martins, Eto'o (Expects to see the Glazers to flex their finacial muscle) .
Possible Squad in 08
Van Der Sar/ Foster
Huntelaar, Eto'o or Martins/ Smith
Oliver Kapo is on the move from Juve this Summer. Expect much interest from England and Spain, especially Arsenal, Liverpool, Portsmouth, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla. Lyon, Monaco and PSG may also come in for him.
Samir Nasri is on his way to Arsenal for £6 million pounds. Fee will rise subject to international and Arsenal appearances a la Walcott.
The question is where Arsene will play him. Current thinking suggests in a removed Bergkamp like role. Though there are worries about his finishing ability (see Fabregas, Rosicky, everyone else this season).
Torres to Barcelona as Man Utd will get Gudjohnson and will not pay 24 mill for him. He said he'd never play for another team in Spain cos he doesn't wanna play against his beloved Atletico, but he won't turn down Barcelona. Giles Barnes WILL not go to Spurs he will go to Liverpool. Freddy Eastwood to the Hammers, 3.5 mill. Ashton will want to leave though he will be forced to stay for another season. Personally, if I was West Ham i'd get the £14+ mill people will offer and cut my losses, he's very injury prone. That's all today folks. HAZE
Sidwell or S. Brown
Keane or Bellamy
Youngsters: McCarthy, Pavlov, Pop and a few more
Prso - if he can't continue
Sorry about that I meant Steven Davis, and he will leave because he will want first team football which he won't get at villa.
Liverpool to add whizkid Sotirios Ninis from panathinaikos FC to their ever growing youth setup in the Summer transfer window. Rafael Benitez has identified him as their leo Messi within the near future. watch out for more inside info
Edinburgh SPL club Hearts are on the verge of capturing Klaus Topmoller, the current National coach of Georgia, as their new head coach.
Topmoller met with senior Hearts officials before and after the recent Scotland v Georgia game and has agreed a two year contract to start in June. Topmoller has insisted that he be in sole charge of all matters related to the football side of the club including signings and team selection. Owner Vladimir Romanov has agreed to have no direct involvement in the football affairs of the club whilst Topmoller is in charge but has insisted that the clubs policy of tracking and signing the top under 19 talent in Europe is continued.
