AC Milan will use the money from the sale of Andriy Shevchenko to bid for Steven Gerrard. (Daily Star) --- Here we go again! I swear some people just love this bunk. Next we'll be hearing Real Madrid is trying again and maybe even Chelsea, I mean can you imagine? Ballack, Gerrard AND Lampard!? Cajnces are, Italian papers are just reporting this stuff to get into the brits heads before the cup. Anyway, don't get your panties in a twist, Stevie ain't goin' nowhere. Let them bid, we can just laugh it all off, because at the end of the day Gerrard is a red for life. If it weren't just for the fact that EVERYONE at LFC from Perry to Rafa to SG to other players have all said he's not leaving, just think on this... Do you really think, after all the great moves and brilliant managing Rafa's done over the last 2 years to get this far, that he'd do something as stupid as giving up one of the best players in Europe? Yeah, I don't think so either. Try this on for size too... What could Rafa g
et if he sold SG that would actually make the team better without him than it is with him? That's right, nothing. It's just plain illogical. So for all the Reds out there. sit tight and don't let all the hogwash get to you, next Fall Stevie will still be a red as sure as the sun will rise and set. --- GO REDS!
Probable Manchester United squad for up coming season:
-----------van der Sar------------
If MU fail to snap up Torres, they will certainly try to get colo tevez or even adriano. one thing i can say with qiute confidence, Ruud will leave and a new extra-class striker will be captured.
giggs,scholes were,are and will be our legends but now we should get ones like Mascherano or Riquelme.
Aitor Ocio of Sevilla who is out of contract is not interested in a move to England...he has already rejected a move to various premiership sides...
Apparently he is holding out on a move to Valencia or another big Spanish club
Adriano will sign for Real Madrid before the world cup.The deal will involve Ronaldo going the other plus 40mil euros.
Also i have it on good authority that Man Uniteds interest in Lyons Diarra is just a smokescreen.Their real target is Romas 22yr old ace Danielle Di Rossi.A bid of around 20-25mil will be to much to resist for the italian club.
Officials from Tottenham Hotspur football club have been seen around football club Roma.
Qpr midfielder Marc bircham is in talks with swindon town about a possible move as qpr made him avaliable for transfer near the end of last season.
Fernando Torres has signed a contract for arsenal and will sign after the world cup. And Dirk Kuyt has signed for Tottenham
Injury prone Neil Mellor will next week complete a £900,000 move from Liverpool to Premiership new boys Sheffield United.
Luke beckett is to sign for swindon next week after turning down a contract from hudersfield and oldham who he played for last season.becket who is surplus to requirements at sheffield united and has been made avaliable on a free since they one promotion to the premiership,wise sees beckett as the one to fire swindon back up to league one and hopefully a deal will be done next week.
Millwall are likely to sign :Lenny Pidgely who has been realeased from Chelsea, Zak Whitbread from Liverpool and Darren Byfield from Gillingham. Spackmans Liverpool & Chelsea links will help the transfers of Whitbread & Pidgely
Arsenal will sign Adriano from Inter in the summer with Campbell going the other way. I f Campbell does go then AW will look for another experienced defender (Thuram would be a BIG possibility). Cole will not be moving anywhere in the premiership as AW would rather sell him to a foreign club (most likely RM - who also want Reyes) so expect AW to look to add Robinho or Casilas (Pending on the Juve situation and Buffon) in a swap deal.
my dads mate is fracis jeffers, and he claims that he is coming back to everton. Ha, but also he claims that everton will sign lescott by friday. Huth will come after the world cup (depending on if yobo moves to arsenal). Malbranque coming possibly followed by swp and joey barton. Looks like an exciting season for the blues! - mjp
I hear that Inter Milan are lining up Fiorentina striker Luca Toni to replace wantaway striker Adriano. The Brazilian has apparently been linked with Real Madrid and Arsenal, so Toni could become Inter's next recruit as his replacement.
Man united news - adriano swapped with ruud and 10 mil , diarra wont be coming in he wants to go to real madrid or barca - ribery and Riquelme are in negotiations if they dont come off expect Mascherano and kerlon . makoun already signed for lyon and arsenal were gonna try get adriano before united but ruud and cash was better for them so expect arsenal to go for torres instead and a few juve players due to their financial problems . also martin o neill will be in place this season queroz off and this is fergies last season ..
Relegated Birmingham City will, despite the claims from Steve Bruce, have a clearout this summer to even up their financial situation. Cameron Jerome has already joined from Cardiff City, and he's likely to replace Emile Heskey, who would've left even if Birmingham had avoided the drop. Mikael Forssell, Jermaine Pennant, Maik Taylor, Matthew Upson, Jiri Jarosik, Nicky Butt and Mario Melchiot will also leave St Andrews.
Henri Camara is soon to move , his employers Wigan have agreed a bid of £7.5 million with an unknown club . This money coul see a few players join the club such as ;
Callum Davenport - Spurs - £500,000
Chris Kirkland - Liverpool - Loan
Liam Miller - Man U - £1 million
Florent Malouda - Lyon - £6 million
Ze Roberto to Arsenal - This is 100% true, News will be announced after the World Cup
After successfully completing the deal for Lescott,Moyes will make one last signing this summer in Steed Malbranque from Fulham which will solve our left-sided midfield problem. Also Moyes is considering a loan move for SWP. Moyes could ponder getting Francis Jeffers on a free for back-up.
Everton Team 06/07
Subs :- Osman, Martyn(if still playing),McFadden, Stubbs,Van Der Meyde, Neville, Jeffers
Here are some random transfers i have heard about
Glen Johnson -----> WHUFC 3.3m
Vincent Pericard -----> PAFC FREE
Jermain Pennant -----> WHUFC 4m
John Bent -------> Colchester FREE
Roberto Carlos ----> Chelsea 8.9m
Do you not find it funny that 'V1' always post rumours, that seem to contradict his previous rumours?
I found it highly amusing how at the top of the page he stated what Newcastle's team would be next season, then later on posted rumours about Newcastle trasfers, with a brand new player on! I wouldn't think Newcastle would sign someone and not even put them in the squad! Please 'V1', post rumours that atleast aren't contradictory so we can pretend to beleve them. Real rumours I have heard about N.U.F.C are the obvious ones.
Kuyt = £10,000,000
Huth = £4,000,000
Bridge = £4,000,00
S.W.P = Season long loan
Have all you newcastle fans forgot about James Milner he is a great player and he is off to villa I know this because he said he is'nt botherd about wages he just wants first team football.
Arsenal Summer Transfers
Torres £22.5 Million
Curtis Davies £5.7 Million
Vieria Return (Undis)
Buffon £9.5 Million
These are the official bids Arsenal will be launching for each of these players. I work within Arsenal Football Club, please dont pass this rumour by. WATCH THIS SPACE
Can confirm there is something in the rumours suggesting Mourinho will be leaving Chelsea (rumoured to be in 2007 though could even be as early as this summer). Ballack and Shevchenko are Abramovich signings NOT Mourinho's who is starting to lose influence over team affairs. The potential signing of Roberta Carlos highlights this fact even more so. Abramovich is taking a role more similar to presidents of clubs on the continent who dictate the clubs transfer policy. Jose likes young, hungry, hard working players with a team ethic so that he can mould and easily influence them as oppose to having older, established big name players with potentially clashing egos. The changes at Chelsea are seen as a massive slap in the face for the Portuguese meastro. Inter have already been linked and Milan is also a possible destination. However, Mourinho's future likely to be decided by the result of the Real Madrid presidential elections whereby the incoming president will be looking to scrap th
e unpopular "Galaticos" system in favour of having a top quality coach who will have more influence on team affairs, including transfers, in an attempt to try and narrow the gap with Barca.
Manchester United will move for Robben OR Duff from chelsea. They will also sign J. Mascherano and Riquelme. If RVN leaves this summer, Fergie will go Jermain Defoe. Fortune, Fletcher and Silvestre will all be leaving
Nottingham Forest FC Latest
Nottingham Forest Star David Johnson will not have his contract renewed at the end of next season due to his very high wages and will finish his footballing career where he started it, Ipswich.
New Manager Colin Calderwood will try and sign a goal-keeper after Paul Gerrard was realesed by the club.
Spurs team next season
My partner, who works for an airline crew (who shall remain nameless) met Craig Bellamy (got the auto too) on a midweek flight to Glasgow. It was later on when she saw Bellamy in The Radisson Hotel with a group of men she asked a colleague if they knew what it was all about. The only person in the group that was recognised apart fron Bellamy was Tommy Burns. Watch this space.
with alvaro recoba about to be released from inter expect to see moves from clubs such as portsmouth, boca juniors, villareal, parma andpossibly a bigger club such as liverpool or valencia
Reports in the press suggest that Liverpool FC are on the verge of a takeover, and that it has been verbally agreed on July 1st. The reason this has not been made official is because teams will start asking for more money.
Liverpool are also ready to splash out 9.5 million on darren bent, however the charlton chairman is unwilling to let him go. But with a 7 million profit in 1 season it may be too much to resist.
Djibril Cisse is to complete a move to Marseille or Lyon before the world cup. Marseille are ready to bid 8 million which Rafa is willing to accept.
Pablo Aimar may be on his way to LFC after Valencia admitted they are ready to let him go. Liverpool offered 10 million last season but the offer was rejected however it may be enough this time around.
With Sevilla sending Saviola back to Barcelona, they have removed Barca's first option on Daniel Alves. Therefore it looks like Liverpool are favourites to sign him for 8 million. Liverpool representatives are working hard to complete the deal in the coming week or two.
Jermaine Defoe is keen on a move to LFC, with Kewwll possibly moving int he opposite direction. A 5 million puond plus Kewell maybe enogh for LFC to persuade Martin Jol to accept. Also with Jermaine Defoe's squad number being given to Dimitar Berbatrov, and with Carlton Cole seemingly on his way. Defoe may be surplus to requirements.
AC Milan are aiming to use the money they recieve from shevchenko's move to Chelsea to try to convince Liverpool to let go of their prized posession. However with Milan only willing to offer 17 million, LFC are unlikely to accept after they rejected 32 million from chelsea last season.
Liverpool will find out in the next week whether Mark Gonzalez will play next season after they apllied for a work permit on June 1st. At the moment it is looking good as Chile are in the 70 ranked teams, and also Mark Gonzalez has made a name for himself after his performances for Real Sociedad last season.
Thanks for reading folks I'll be back with more.
Fergie´s main targets are Diarra, Riquelme, and I´ve heard now that United are now interested in Dirk Kuyt to replace Ruud, so Liverpool and Newcastle face competition to sign him.
Fergie is still keen on Gennaro Gattuso from AC Milan, but it doesn´t look likely that they will sell.
United´s likely team next season will be....
Van der Sar, Neville, Heinze, Ferdinand, Silvestre, Vidic, Evra, O´Shea, Brown, Ronaldo, Giggs, Diarra, Scholes, Smith, Riquelme, Park, Saha, Rooney, Kuyt?, Torres?, Rossi, Solskjaer.
why is it when anybody is linked with a play on this site MAN U fans decide to link themselves with the player as well. well arsenal will sign Adriano cuz inter want campbell and adriano is not happy Wenger has been at the brasilian training sessions keeping a close eye on him and has asked gilberto to see if he is intrested in a move the answer was YES so the two clubs are discussing a fee right now the price is exspected to be 22 mill + sol campbell however the fee could increase if they do not seal the deal before the world cup and he has a good world cup then it could increase by another 5 mill.
ARSENAL NEWS Arsene Wenger has set his sights on Adriano(inter)and it looks likely that the deal could be done before the world cup starts on June 9th?Sol Campbell will be moving to Inter along with a large sum of cash.Yoann Gourcuff will not be signing for Arsenal as he now wants to join Milan.AW will sign Nuri Sahin(borussia dortmund)instead.Other Arsenal signings will be Curtis Davies(west brom),Marcos Senna(villarreal)or Patrick Vieira will return?Youngsters Fran Merida,Nacer Barazite,Adil Chihi and Assulin Gai will also be signed.Expect a bid also for Franck Ribery(marseille)who Thierry Henry has taken under his wing with France.
Gareth Southgate will be appointed as the new Middlesbrough manager sometime next week.

Adriano has been quoted saying how he 'admires Arsenal' and says t'hey are going to be the dominant European force for the next 5 years', Wenger has been seen at Brazils training camp talking to his Agent, and the fact Inter want Arto Lupoli for nearly two years now. The deal would be around 30 mill, 15 up front plus installments but would also include Inter being allowed to 'share' Wengers youth policy, ie, we sign young Africans, Brazillians etc and loan them solely to Inter until they get European clearance for passports.
Going to Reading FC
Eidur Gudjohnsen £6.5M
Ray Parlour (Free)

- - - Portsmouth FC news - - -
jamie redknapp is goin to be revealed as arrys right hand man in the next few days as cotterill said he aint interested.
arry is lookin at bringing in players for all positions and trying to do what he did in past seasons, bringing in a mixture of experience and youth.
However, harry and the chairmen have drawn up quite a hit list, although if milan mandaric keeps intfereing with his own targets, arry will walk out again as he did so last time. because red star belgrades' Zigic is mandarics target rather than redknapps!!

although at this stage, dejan stefanovic has attracted feyenoord, matt taylor has interest from fulham and spurs, and i dont kno if its true, but gary o'neil has bin linked with liverpool??
expect a big reshuffle of players to fight for top 10 finish as expected by sascha gaydamak! as we have seen the departures of
routledges, diao, karadas and koromans loan ended
Fran Merida is goin to arsenal for sure. The deal is already 80% done. AW will prob go for 2-4 other youngters. Possibly Davies, pele, gago, makoun. His two main striker targets are Arouna Kone from psv and Aiyegbeni Yakubu from Middlesbrough!
Load of rubbish about Vieira coming back to the Gunners. No way would Wenger resign him - he made his decision and he'll stand by it, it's just not in him to go back on something like that. Juve do owe us cash though and talk of Torres seems to be wide of the mark. Ibrahimovic or Trezeguet a strong possibility. Cole will stay but Campbell definitely out, which is a shame as he'll probably be replaced by Thuram (slightly creaky these days). Lots of flannel about Man Utd signing every player under the sun. Owen WON'T be going to Old Trafford. If he has a decent World Cup, he'll be priceless and the fact that he is the only hope of filling Shearer's boots means he'll stay on Tyneside til next season at least. Torres is more likely to stay in the Primera than move to England. Can't believe Barca haven't moved in yet. Riquelme, Mascherano and Ferdinand will not be heading to Man U either. The best they can hope for is Kevin Nolan! Enjoy.

Kevin Foley will sign a 4 year deal with Paris Saint-Germain after the World Cup. Foley has been linked with many clubs recently and has turned down the likes of West Ham, Spurs and Liverpool to join the Paris outfit. PSG have paid Luton €2.2 million for the player + young centre back L Mabiala.
With the money from Foley, Mike Newell will sign a right back with Kevin O'Conner top of his list.
MAN UNITED NEWS Javier Mascherano has reportedly held talks with Manchester United according to reports in Argentina. The agent of Mascherano who is Fernando Hidalgo has had discussions with the Manchester United directors according to these reports. The player has been linked with moves to Chelsea and Arsenal in the past year. Sir Alex Ferguson is desperate to bring Juan Roman Riquelme to Manchester United Football Club.Ferguson is desperate to reinvent his midfield in order to launch a lasting Premiership bid for next season, and believes Riquelme would be the perfect addition to his squad. United are prepared to back their manager this summer, and a cheque for around £10million will soon be winging its way to Spain in an attempt to lure his target to Old Trafford.

Firstly real madrid are waiting to see wot happens with juventus as they are interested in signing zambrotta and ibrahimovic.

Rangers will complete the signings of Jeremy Clement and Johan Elmander in the next few days. Other players being targeted are - Steve Mandanda, Anthony Revelliere, Scott Brown and Niko Krancjar. The team will be as follows: -
i am an assistant to ian cotton,official press spokesman for liverpool fc.here are the facts to clear the rumours up.we have agreed deals with pennant and bellamy. these will only be signed if our 1st choice targets do not happen. these are fernando torres and ludovig giuly. negotiations for both players are ongoing. alves will not decide on his future for two weeks, although his early indications say he wants to play in the premiership for liverpool.feyenoord are asking too much for kuyt. huntelaar is being watched for the future (my advise was ignored, i said buy him now )and charlton are asking silly money for bent.aguero has signed for athletico but i know he had contacts from mr benitez. there is also a surprise to come and i wouldnt want to spoil it, but all lfc fans will be happy.
To all of those people who think that Rennes starlet Yohann Gourcuff is going to Arsenal - please give it a rest! As a Gooner myself I'd like to see an exciting young talent join, but I have reason to believe that his heart is set on a move to Milan.

EMERSON WILL FOLLOW HIM TO REAL MADRID WITHIN A WEEK
Sheffield United will clinch a double raid on Manchester City this week. David Sommeil has already agreed terms on a move to Bramall Lane following his release, and right-back Danny Mills will also sign for newly promoted United after being made available for transfer.
Liverpools interest in Ronaldo has not died down despite the lack of press coverage, liverpool want to make a bid of around £8-10million before the world cup starts as his almost certain goals for brazil during their campaign will re-ignite a host of teams looking for his signature.
news straight from gary lewin arsenal physio, he is currently with the england squad and has been told by arsenal that he will have to perform to extremely harsh medicals on adriano of inter and wright phillips of chelsea, arsene wenger wants to make sure he gets his moneys worth from the two !!!!!!!!! 100% true
