Football Rumours Archive April 30 2009
Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
First of all guiseppe rossi won't be going to spurs simply because manu have 1st offer on him that was made before they sold him.
Now the ronaldo deal to real won't happen nike want him either at united or barca and this is causing problems because he has a 5year deal with nike and real is addidas although addidas are looking at buying out his nike contract if that happens expect to see 60m and diarra go the other way . hargreaves will be on his way for a cut price 5m to the highest bidder due to injuries if diarra comes or an alternative will be sought xavi is the name being bundled about if no diarra.
Tevez will be staying because lyon want 40m for benzema and united will not pay that for someone who is not EPL qualified and its a big gamble if he can't cut it in EPL.Nani won't be going anywhere if ronaldo goes then nani will play rw and tosic will be lw.Wellbeck will go on loan but macheda will stay to make up the 4th striker.Oshea could be on his way. No big changes but just tweaks a lot depends on ronaldo and united won't spend the ronaldo money on kaka it won't happen hes too old a player to pay that much but you could see messi if ronaldo goes if united can convince him to leave barca that is.
HAve heard some interesting transfer rumours flying round north london at the moment. Shockingly 2 Newcastle players will be aquired, these are likely to be Bassong and Martins. It is no secret Ade will be a target for Milan should Ancelotti stay at the reigns in Milan however should he get the boot expect a move by city rivals Inter as they are looking for a replacement for Adriano and the ageing Julio Cruz, providing competition to Ibrahimovic and Balotelli. Also expect a bid for CM Matuidi, St ettienne are looking all but relegated and there stars will move on with Wenger keeping a close eye on this impressive young talent aswell as Gomis – although Lyon look strong competition to his signature. Should Bendtner move to pastures new then a bid for either Zidan of Dortmund or Ba of Hoffenheim will be made. Rumours about Walcott for Babel are ridiculous. Expect a large bid for Clichy that will test Wengers resolve. Likely to be Madrid or Barcelona.
Alrite, i'm known as pavarotti for muy singing skills, but i know a rumour or two at ibrox, the Rangers are planning to bring in Andy Dorman(1 mil), Chris Brunt(1 mil) and Andy Driver(1 mil)
Out going will include Barruy Ferguson to Fulham for 1.5 million. Lee Mcculloch to Coventry for 500k and Steve Davis tio Everton for 6 mil
After selling Newcastle to a madagascan based consortium, Mike Ashley will follow it up with a big money move for his boyhood heroes Torquay United. He will look to bring in Torquay hero Lee Canoville as a long term manager to bring Torquay back up the league system.
You heard it hear first!!

Nickie Bailey from Charlton FC, and jordi Gomez to sign for Derby County FC, for a combined fee of £4 million.
Yaya Toure has asked his brother Kolo Toure to come to Barcelona. you reckon he will go there or vice versa? Thats if barca bids for him? . .–JG–. .
Stoke City are reportedly planning a £3 bid for Sheffield United's Kyle Naughton.
Strong hints from Port Vale that the League Two Burslem club are looking to appoint a new manager before the end of this week. Bill Bratt, chairman of Port Vale, said in the post–game speech to a packed, attentive audience, after the recent Wycombe game, that major changes were underway and hinted that announcements were imminent.
Deliberately leaked rumours have clearly indicated that there is a board room split in deciding the club's next manager to replace marooned Dean Glover, who is yet to officially hear of his fate, with options allegedly being made to him to remain in a coaching capacity with the youth set–up, seeing out the remainder of his current assistant manager contract.
Paul Ince, previously manager at Macclesfield, MK Dons and Blackburn looking to become the new Valiants' manager with half a million pounds investment being provided by club sponsor Harlequin.
Player and coaching staff contracts are likely to be agreed as early as next week.
Heard through the graoevine that City are looking to bid for Maicon from Inter Milan and Ronaldinho from AC Milan. I think their aim is to buy every Brazilian out there.
Walsall transfer news
taundry–bristol city £100,000
gilmartin–out of contract

byfield–doncaster–free (yes another rumour about him returning)
Hutchings will also be intresed it signing a right winger and another forward if he fails to bring Byfield to the club. he will also want to bring in a couple of players on loan
Stunning news for United fans. SAF's successor has been decided – with SAF having a major say in the decision. They wanted someone with the same grace under pressure, the same fairminded objectivity, the same monastic integrity in financial matters. Someone in short who can and does sing from the same script, who can blink and chew gum at the same time – Big Sam.
Everton fc are currently watching albacete on loan from athletico madrid star Diego da Silva Costa expect moyes to offer 3 million
Frank Rijkaard to take over at City this summer but only if they can secure the services of Karim Benzema first.
B.Munich are set to reveal Bernd Schuster will be manager from next season. His biggest task is persuading Ribery to stay.
Barcalona to pay £33 million for Ribery, Henry will join City for his retirement fund. Eto'o will stay for one more year until Bojan steals his place. Ribery, Messi and Eto'o upfront, pretty frightening!
Real Madrid will go all Spanish this summer with bids for Silva, Martinez, Navas, Albiol and Capel. They will fund this by selling Metzelder (B.Munich), De La Red (Ex. for Martinez), Drenthe(Inter Milan), Van Nistlerooy(Galatasary)and Van Der Vaart(Chelsea). They will bring Guiza back to Spain too.

All this talk about a Walcott and Babel swap is makes no since, come on liverpool fans. I love how everyone is in love with Gibbs when in fact Troare is better but because Gibbs is english people overate him, by the way we have another young leftback named Pedro on loan at Salamanca. We also would sell troare because he is a good winger too and that will allow Arshavin to play games down the middle. Arsenal will sign a winger, cb, and cm. The winger wil be Babel, Marko Marin, Eden Hazard, Gourcuff, Jaizinho Arroe or Wesley Sneijder. The CM will be Matuidi or Inler. The CB will be Sakho who will be back up for a year for gallas. Sakho is as strong as Micah Richards but a far better defender and he is a leader, captened PSG at 17.
(For Sure List)
Senderous–who ever will take him
Adebayor– Milan(money and Gourcuff), Barcelona, Madrid(money and sneijder or Higuin or Huntelaar)
Eden Hazard–Lille(this year or next),Next C.Ronaaldo
Sakho–PSG(young Gallas but with leadership qualities)
Leicester will be signing :
Yhis will all happen this year as i am a cleaner at lcfc

push for top 4 and good run in europe aswell, hughes has till the end of next season to prove himself.
Benitez's budget consists of 25mil plus whatever he can get from his squad sales
He will sell:
Dossena – 6mil – Udinese/AC Milan
Degen – 2mil – hamburg
hyppia – 500k – wolves
babel – 14mil – inter
lucas will stay sigh
this gives him a budget of around the 47 mil mark
He will bring in:
Johnson – 9mil – pompey
Tevez – 28mil – 3rd party
kolse – 8 mil – Bayern
If Tevez goes elsewhere, Expect Simao (13mil, Atletico), Barry (8mil, Villa) and A.Young (18mil, Villa). under these circumstances lucas WILL go (huray!) for 9mil, Villerreal.
Expect the 2nd to happen but either set of transfers will strengthen the squad, to what benitez wants. Good Times. YNWA. BigSmoke.
Just to clear a few things up about manchester United FC:
Luis Nani will not be going anywhere next season, Sir Alex has said that he is part of his plans and has just had an unlucky season due to the consistant form of Park Ji Sung and Ryan Giggs.
Cristiano will be on his way out of old trafford this season, Sir Alex has said with the money raised from his sale he will attempt to purchase Kaka for a fee of around 50 million pounds which will be hard to turn down for any club, this deal looks likey at the moment with, Kaka saying if he was to come to england it would be to play for either Manchester United or Arsenal as he believes they play the best football to suite his style, aswell as the clubs being in talks and a fee has been accepted.
Berbatov will not be sold, for a player that needs time to gel and form partnerships with the front men he has done incredibley well scoring 11 goals this season, what most people don't realise is that he's an attacker but not an out and out goal scorer he holds the ball up and plays it through aswell as being a box poacher, so he has done very well at united for his 1st season.
Tevez is a hard one to decide upon but the way i see it is if not him the its rumoured to be benzema right? explain this to me he's 2 years younger, correct but has no premier league exp with tevez we've had those 2 years out of him and he is a proven premier league player, and i think sir alex see's this too, he's not stupid my any means.
Fletcher, brown and oshea will not be going anywhere, fletcher and brown are both regulars with a very important roles at the club and as for Oshea although he isn't a 1st team regular he is still very important to us so i only expect to see Kuzcack leave and perhaps gibson.
thanks for reading, feel free to comment!

Total coming in 40mil
1. Benayoun new contract
2. Riera one more season to prove himself
3. Agger new contract
4. Hypia coaching staff
5. Ngog still as bit part player
6. Arbeloa one more season
7. Insua new contract
8. Pacheco promoted
9. Nemeth promoted
1. Pato deal done from Keane's tranfer
2. Glen Johnson for 7Mil
3. Albiol 14Mil
4. Downing 7Mil

Total in 43mil
Toatl 3mil spent. .this shows how shrewd Benitez can be in the dealings. All deals are targetted to be completed by 15july. Just before thier Far east training trip to Singapore. Believe it or not. .up to you!!!
Zola and Clarke will use their Chelsea connections at the end of the season and try to bring Joe Cole back to West Ham,initally on a loan deal until at least January to get him fit again,and if all goes well they will make it a permanent signing then.Also expect Joe Ledley to complete a move to the Hammers,for a fee of £5.5 million.
