Liverpool will bid for Antonio Valencia (12–15mil) Gonzalo Higuain (17–20mil) Gareth Barry (10–13mil) Glen Johnson (8–10mil) Aislan (6mil)
Several clubs are chasing Kuyt and anoybody who puts in an offer of more than 15mil for him will sign him. Benayoun's price tage of 7.5mil will be matched by many– he will have the choice where to go. Lucas is subject of a 8mil bid from 2 spanish clubs and 1 premier league club. Liverpool will let him leave for this amount but will insert a buy–back clause for him. Andrea Dossena will go to Juventus or Milan for 6mil. This cloncludes the big money departures.
Departures of Andriy Voronin, Itjande, Degen and Pennant will raise another 3–5mil.
Sebastian Leto will be loaned out in the premiership or La Liga
I'm a man utd supporter as much as i believe we have won the league already, i feel our attack needs something of a luxury in the likes of karim benzema. his good but i sure at man utd he will turn into a great player. fergie must remember he has a buy back clause on rossi which i think we should cash in on. as for robbie keane good player i think they should shift abit of the passes to him then torres all the time that's what makes him look too bad. arshavin his not totally the solution gentlemen wenger should spent abit now. (get veloso wenger)i think out of all the mangers his the second best in the world for his ability to make a young team play the most entertaining football in the world don't tell me about barca they haven't been tested, real madrid is not a test. man city please please get yourselves shweinstiger, podolsc, lahm, aguero, modise, arshavin, one of my favourite ''upson'' and boost that team. if not take out 300000mil pounds get yourself messi hahahahaha.

To the person that said Matias Fernandez plays for colo colo, that was his old club he currently plays for villareal in spain. keane to go back to spurs with lennon coming to anfield. agureo will hopefully come in the summer (23million), benitez to clear out dead wood in summer with lucas (thank god), n'gog, itanje, benayoun and a few youngsters moving on loan.
Heard that momo boukri, a young french starlet is going to spurs
Fletcher and mirranda (st mirren)leftback will sign for celtic on monday lee naylor going to newcastle on loan . don't know how true but iheard from what i think is a reliable source
THE LEAGUE FLAG IS STAYING WHERE IT IS 4 IN A ROW !!!!!!
Mattias Fernandez plays for villareal so if any liverpool scouts were watching colo colo (which i doubt) it definetely would not be fernandez they were scouting! Stupid rumour.
Ins: Santa cruz 13m plus darren bent.
Robbie Keane 15m
Lee martin from manchester utd res and nathan dyer from southampton will join sheffield utd end of the season j.j.toole from watford will join blades on monday
Robbie Keane will move from Liverpool to Spurs which in turn will involve DarrenBent moving up to Sunderland for £10 million.As a direct consequence Michael Chopra will leave Sunderland for Cardiff City for 3–4 million.
Happy Harry is working on 15 deals at the moment ,9 permanent and 6 loans. All of them are triffic players.
In the summer expect him to move 7 out again and bring in another 8 or 9.
No need for me to give the names out Arry will do that himself in the papers tomorrow.
To the guy who said Campbell will go to Hull, that would not be up to Harry, as he is on loan from United, so only United could make that deal.
