Man United will not buy any one this January unless Adebayor anoces he would leave Arsenal or benzema says the same but in the Summer it will be spend spend spend for sir Alex Ferguson
Saha £9 million fegie bored off him being injured or he will be bait in part exhanges
brown out of contract soonish so he will be used as bait
micah Richards for a lot of money Sven is good friends with ergie so he will sell up for about £27 million which could rise to 30
karim benzema says he would love to join the Red Devils so about 20 milSaha or Brown
and a full back who can cover for Evra lesScot is in the frame and expect a bid for lahm definatley but wheter he would come or Bayern would accepted is anuva matter
To the person who said Babayaro is moving 2 Wigan he has went to LA Galaxy anyway Keegan is bringin in Barry Robson, A young teenager from Atalanta who I cannot say and possibly giles Barnes if Newcastle n Derby can agree a fee
Frm th inside man
Richard Lee is a target for Derby County if Roy Carroll fails to join the Premier League strugglers.
Danny Shittu could have talks with Blackburn boss Mark Hughes over a possible £5,000,000 transfer.
Steve Kabba will be released in Febuary but only if they can bring in West Bromwich misfit John Hartson for a fee belived to be around £2,000,000.
Graham Simpson is admiring the work of croatin boss Mareki Salovachiniv and has asked to meet the 22 year old gaffer in what has been thought off as a job offering as manager at Vicarage Road. He is in charge of croation side Filihevichion F.C. A club in what is equal to the English Blue Square Premier League sides in England.
Aston Villa Ins
Henrik Larsson Helsingborgs
Andrew Surman Southampton
Tresor Kandol Leeds United
Wes Brown Man United
Liverpool will sell Crouch, Kuyt and Voronin and bring in Villa, Ashley young and Silva, they will be looking for new centre midfielders as well
Stoke are interested in 32 year old Antwerp forward Darko Pivaljević. He is highly rated and impressed the Stoke Director of Football on a recent scouting mission.
Norwich are hoping to sign 2/3 names prior to the window shutting; and maybe one after the window is closed.
Norwich have already rejected a bid for Scunthorpe's Martin Paterson of £850 k. A further bid is possible.
The young Arsenal player Norwich have a first option on is rumoured to be either Kieran Gibbs or Mark Randall. This one could, however, be left until after the window closes – specifically when Arsenal's African Cup of Nations players return.
Norwich are then awaiting fresh news regarding Martin Taylor. The Birmingham defender is being kept at Birmingham until a replacement is secured, and even then a deal is far from secured with Norwich refusing to up the price from the £750 k offered. Birmingham want a reported £1 million with an option of a further £300 k should Taylor start 10 games.
Finally, Roeder is monitoring the situation at Newcastle as he is hopeful of landing Shola Ameobi. Ameobi is a player Roeder greatly admires, and Ameobi is supposedly keen to link up with Roeder once more. Unfortunately, Norwich can only afford to take the forward on loan, while Newcastle want to off load for £1.25 million.
Giggs, Scholes and Neville will retire if they win the treble (Fa Cup, Premier League, Champions League) this year. they think that United youngsters have a very bright future.
xpect a reinforcement.
lahm, Richards, leScott (for Neville)
i think that nani, park, Anderson, Hargreaves, and Ronaldo can coup with the departure of Giggs and Scholes but I think they also need to have a new signing in that department in case of injury (possible acquisitions Robinho, Ribery, Diaby, Quaresma, Muntari, Mascherano, and cambiasso)
redDEVIL 4 lyf.
Whoever said that Fernando Torres was going to Real Madrid in the Summer knows absolutely nothing. Rafa has been given the much deserved backing from the Yanks therefore El Nino will not leave neither will any of the backbone players to our team. Sammy Lee will be added to the coaching staff in the Summer, either he or Alex Miller will become Rafa's Assistant. Sami Hyypia will also be given a coaching/player role. Going out will be, Carson, Kuyt, Voronin, Riise, Pennant, Benayoun, Skrtel (loan, Itandje, Leto, El Zhar. The funds for these players will be spent on;
David Villa, David Silva, Dani Alves, Wayne Bridge, Joe Hart, Micah Richards. More to follow
Red in the Know Y. N. W. A
I can guarentee that in the Summer Rangers will sign 2 big names one will be rhino Gattuso and the other is a good surprise
Afc– OUT in Summer
Tottenham to sign Alan Hutton, Gilberto, Woodgate. C'MON THE COYS. SPURS TILL I DIE.
Listen, lets get this straight keegan has been told the only one he can sign is Barnes he has to pretend to be interested in big name players so when we narrowly avoid relegation they can spend in Summer, you do not fool me Mr Ashley
Sunderland will try to hijack the afonso Alves deal because of them losing Cole to Burnley and they will make a £7 million bid for AC Milan veteran cafu
Talks between Vladimir Romanov and Temuri Ketsbaia went very well in Croatia last week. Ketsbaia is now a leading candidate. Another contender is Aris Thessaloniki manager Dusan Bajevic. Romanov has contacts in Greece as seen with the signings of Fyssas, Karipidis and Palazuelos and as a result was alerted to both men.
Martin O'Neill has said he will not be forced into any 'panic' last minute buys but has not ruled out such last minute loans to add to the team. Possibly targets include:
juan pablo angel
Jose Angel Crespo
Rangers deadline deals for a fact
. dailly. loan#
. robson. £1.2 million
. lafferty. £2 million+ buffel
these deals are close to being done fact
big magoo. holytown rfc loyal//our ben.
Clarence Seedorf and Gianluca Zambrotta are self–confessed followers of Celtic. Zambrotta will arrive this Summer for left back, Seedorf next Summer. Teemu tainio will not come, nor will taiwo from Marseilles.
Sami Hyypia on a six month loan deal as defense is very shaky.
Sno will return to Holland, Chris Killen to Yeovil/Leyton Orient.
Liverpool to have a MAJOR overhaul next season. the American duo will replace Rafa with Mourinho and will be given 100 million to spend, and some players have already agreed to join The Special Ones new regime, do not expect any players at Chelsea who played under him to come.
Alves (20 million)
Kaladze (6 million)
Quaresma (12 million)
Mascherano (17 million)
silva (18 million)
villa (25 million)
Robbie Keane (11 million)/Kuyt
I know a source working closely with the likes of Mike Ashley who has told Kevin Keegan of an initial £125 million warchest, however he must clear out Babayaro (Derby – £500 k), Ramage (Hull – Undisc), Rozenhal (Hamburg – £1.5 million), Emre (Bayern Munich – £4 million) and Ameobi (Sheff United – £2.75 million) He will bring in the likes of Micah Richards, Van Buyten, John Arne Riise, Huntelaar, Van der Vaart
Juande Ramos will be offloading the following players either now, or in the Summer. Some have already been told:
Rafa Benitez is seriously looking at Junior Agogo from Ghana, he currently plays for Nottingham Forest and Rafa knows he might get him cheap.
Well, This one is a Corker.
As you may know, Dennis Wise has just left to go even further north, to the town of Brown ale. Well, the compensation received by Leeds is bountiful, and hey will spend it on a manager who can quickly take them to the top division. A man with personality. WHO? I hear you cry. Well, perhaps Ian Holloway? A columnist on BBC, took Plymouth to an FA Cup semi final, now steering Leicester towarrs the play offs. A good candidate. But no. Neil Warnock? A wordsmith, fiery tempered, Sheffield born and bred, a true psycho in a sane footballing world. Surely he, with his with and charm and acumen, having just lost a superb unbeaten run with Palace, is a contender? but no., but the man Leeds want is a Leeds old boy, a genius of all that is footballing, who has shared a dugout with Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, and Rafa Benitez. A man who, in his first season in charge, took a failing, near–bust championship club to the Premier League. Yes, Leeds United will, as of next month appoint Mr. Adrian Boothroyd.
New Leeds manager will be John Sheridan as I know his Distant relative Simon Sheridan told me so.
Alves will complete move to Boro
Vagner Love will sign for Man City
Robson will sign for Newcastle along with Ivan Cordoba, Sol Cambell and shock loan signing of James Beattie
Big Rumours Ashley young moving to Man United for £15 million + Darren flecther
The reason that Nigeria are failing so miserably in the African Cup of Nations, is that prior to the event, Berti Vogts had started talks with taking over from Frail in the Summer.
Also Craig Gordon not for Rangers, but when the Black Cats are sent packing to the Championship, he will go to Celtic on a cut price deal (maybe £4–5 million) with the Holy Goalie off to the Emirates.
Remember the name – buddhabhoy
9 million + Milner for Ashley Young.
Keegan will not be splashing out on defenders as Faye and Beye are on their way back to the Newcastle after tonight. It's all going to go on midfield flair and some scoring ambition AND he Keegan said Premiership players only
Celtic – Samaras from Manchester City will arrive on loan in January with vire to permament move in Summer. Strachan wants Lafferty of Burnley (why I do not know) and will offer £2.5 million + Derek Riordan but may have to up this or include another player (look for Chris killen being the makeweight as Burnley will have lost lafferty and gray so need similar type) Strachan will offer a take it or leave it £1.3 million to Dundee United for barry robson. he still hopes to offload Jarosik, Zurawski, and Balde (more to do with wages than anything else) and get some youngsters out on loan, these to include conroy, o'brien and mggowan.
Celtic Jan Ins – Samaras loan (Manchester City)
lafferty £3.5 million package (Burnley)

I have also heard that Dave Basset will be Hearts Manager by this weekend ( but the Mr campbell he met was actually Mr ogilvie – Mr campbell ogilvie.)
Hail Hail 3 in a row
'Ipswich To Sign Macedonian Gerrard'
Macedonian international midfielder Velice Sumulikoski (46 caps) could sign for Ipswich after reportedly being targetted by Blackburn and Norwich
Terms with the 26 Year old and club (turkish side Bursaspor) have been agreed and he looks set to sign Medical and work permit permitting.
To the person who speculated this (see below) about Newcastle I am sorry to say you are wrong.
Maduro £8 million – Ajax
Hetinga £7 million – Ajax
Jerome £5 million – Birmingham
Luisao £5 million – Benfica"
Maduro is the same player that has just left Ajax to join Valencia (one wrong). Some real NUfc rumours
Newcastle have enquired about the following eight players (some are known, some not)
Wayne Bridge – Summer deal if any
Wes Brown – was looking likely but new deal prevents that
SWP – utter no go
M. Silvestre – Wants to join but Barton at club is one thing preventing this
D. Ashton – possible Summer deal
J. Defoe – now looking less likely however initial enquiry was early January
J. Koumas – he was seen as the spark in the midfield and a possible 5–6 million bid is looming
J. Woodgate – Joined Tottenham so no go there
Brad Guzan will complete a move to Celtic on Thursday morning for a nominal fee.
