Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.



As far as i know, manu never really declared interest in signing either of the argentine duo.We were interested in torres and hargreaves and i believe manu will push for them in jan.

it is really nice to see tevez and mascherno joining westham other than the big clubs.

AND to all the liverpool fans who are jumping in joy,someone needs to pull them back to ground as there is a possibility that portsmouth and westham

may finish above them in the league.Just so you know, arsenal were never interested in mascherano or teves. it was julio ' the beast ' baptista all along.

arsenal will in january make baptista's signing permanent in a straight swap for jose reyes. arsenal will also look to sign gareth bale.TEVEZ AND MASCHENRO NEWS!

Can I just say well done to West Ham for getting two brilliant players BUT in the january transfer window if any club offers 35m for the two players West Ham must let them go. Nad the only reason Tevez and Maschenro went was because the company that owns them just got partly bought by West Ham.MAJOR TEVEZ AND MASCHENRO NEWS

Roman Abramovich owns 15% of MSI the comapny that owns Carlos Tevez and Maschenros contracts. So next summer chelsea will get both players to replace Drogba and the ageing Makelele. They where given to a team that wouldnt cause a serious threat to chelsea so they can gain Premiership experience.After the superb signing of Colin Kazim Richards, Sheffield United's January transfer targets will be most of the players they missed out on. They are:

Greg Halford-Colchester

Scott Brown-Hibernian

Kevin Thomson-Hibernian

Karim Saidi (Tunisian left back)

Marcus Bent-Charlton

Andy Todd-Blackburn

Jobi McAnuff-Crystal PalaceDerek Geary, Chris Lucketti, Keith Gillespie and Neil Shipperley will all leave Sheff United in January as they will not be in the first team. Also, why has every club left it until August 31 to bring in new players? Why not earlier so there was no rush or no panic buys? It just results in teams missing out on most of their targets.After missing out on defensive targets on permanent deals, Mike Newell is looking to bring 2 new faces to Luton Town, outside the transfer window. Expect 2 big arrivals on loans, in the next 7 days.

=v1=Javier Mascherano and Carlos Tevez deal are done. but some still wonder why not manU or Arsena??. actually Abramovich of chelsea are behind this deal remember when teves from Boca Juniors transfer to Corinthians, Abramovich was seen dining with Boca Juniors chairman Mauricio Macri along with Tevez's agent. to be true that Abramovich have business relationship of MSI but not directly link with MSI. certainly abramovich is making the football world looks like a reality games on his hand. and this is scary. Now that this window closes january looms towards us. .Expect arsene wenger to sign ribery in january as he will now want to not only play alongside King henry but gallas aswell. also expect baptista to sign permanent deal sometime soon as real madrid won't want him back and gunners won't like to see reyes returning. .january could be a busy time for AW as he missed out on a few players this window. . .

watch this spaceIn jan transfer window there will b sum major signings like the transfer of defoe to replace ruud van nistelrooy and drogba to ac milan for 15 million and reyes to real madrid nd c ronaldo to villareal nd senna goes other way celtic are lookin to sign a defnder to replace bobo balde mostly likely 2 be diamond of aberdeen and rangers celtic hearts hibs nd aberdeen are goin in for dundees kevin mcdonald ( who is a tireless nidfielder) rangers may swoop for man u's louis saha in exchange for kris boydGOOONERNEWS Arsene Wenger has done it again!Got rid of moaning players and replaced them without touching his £20million transfer kitty!My information is that four deals have already been put in place for the January transfer window?I believe these to be Gareth Bale(southampton),Julian Faubert(bordeaux),Yohann Pele(le mans)and Nuri Sahin(borussia dortmund).The Faubert deal depends on Bordeaux not making it past the Champions League group stages,this could take the deal to next summer?AWis also looking closely at Anderson(fc porto),he would have signed for Arsenal before he went to Porto but Arsenal could not get a visa for him.I've seen little titbits surrounding the supposed capture by arsenal of the brazilian u-19 captain denilson. anyone care to shed some light on such whispers?MSI are hoping to tie up a deal by christmas to buy west ham united, if this deal goes ahead Tavez and Mascherano will be staying at west ham, around 30 million will be made available for future transfers. If the deal is not completed expect the 2 players to move on in the summer. west ham should net a tidy profit as they own 50 % of each player. Whatever happens west ham fans enjoy it while it lasts.Arsene wenger is eyeing up paul konchesky for a swoop in january, expect a 3.5 million bidThe reason that Boltons bid for Kevin Thomson was rejected, is that celtic have already agreed to pay £3.5m for Thomson and Scott Brow

n next summer. Although Brown's first choice was to move to Rangers, Paul Le Guen did not see where the talented 21 year old would fit into his plans and declined to make an offer. Celtics original transfer budget this summer was £5m although this is unaffected as more money came in than out in terms of player transfers and champions league money. £3.5M of this money has been used in the signing of Brown and Thomson so Strachan is likely to have around £1.5-2m to spend in January(Do not rule out the arrival of a new back-up goalkeeper as Marshall may move to the English Championship if he doesn't feature on a more regular basis). Celtic may also move for Stephen Naismith of Kilmarnock in January as Peter Lawell was in negotiations with Kilmarnock before Naismith went on trial with Arsenal, at which point transfer discussions were placed on hold. As far as Rangers are concerned, Paul Le Guen is not interested in arranging any future transfers at this moment in time, although it is known he is a keen admirer of Paris St Germain striker Pauleta.Recently released Deportivo duo - Scaloni + Tristan are heading for trails at Bolton.

Also Everton will move for David Nugent and Stewart Downing in January and offload VDM and Beattie if they fail to improve their fitness and form. I await January eagerly.Diego Tristan has been released by Deportivo La Coruna and has been chosen by Glen Roeder as a possible stop gap striking option for Newcastle until the January transfer window.Celtic are willing to allow Craig Beattie to go out on loan to the english championship for a year as they look to further boost thier squad for the champions league by signing out of contract Deportivo striker Diego Tristan. Leeds, Sunderland and Derby are all interested in Beattie and he would be keen on a move to prove himself as he is well down the pecking ordeer at celtic. While Tristan is thought to be keen to move to Celtic for Champions League football but i think it will only be on a 1 year contract.Celtic News
