man utd 2 sign carrick 14.5 million+ possibilitys tevez mascherano kuszack and ibrahimovich or trezegeut on season long loan till torres comes next july watch this space man utd 4ever
Ashley Cole :- WIll Complete Transfer within a few Day
Hernan Crespo :- Will go to AS Roma. (100%)
Huth :- Will go to Mboro (on loan) completely transfer next season)
SWP will stay another season. He will play more games this season coz Duff already in NUFC
Bridge also have to stay another season as Roberto Carlos already rejected bid from CFC. Arjen Robben is happy at CFC.
Arsene Wenger has indicated he still wants to strengthen his squad further. So expect at least two more players. Cole is almost certain to join chelsea in the range of 16-20 mil.There could be hickups as I just read that arsenal demand 30mil for the "world's best left back". for Appiah and Yaya has seem to quiet down.I think Wenger will still go for a defender before the window closes, probably Trablesi. No more Davies as he has signed a new deal with the baggies.And to all Man Utd fans, Tevez and Mascherano already agreed to join? you must be dreaming!!!! It would take 3/4 of the price of Rooney for each.The only possible things for you guys is Ronaldo staying and Carrick joining. Get the picture?
Arsene Wenger recently revealed to Arsenal board two signings and two bids that he launched.The board members along with David Dein were taken by suprise.Wenger has signed Luccien Aubey for 5.5mil and followed this up with the 18mil capture of Argentine monster Javier Mascherano.Wenger sees the two players as perfect additions to the Arsenal squad.Following Gilbert,Larsson and Muamba out on loan will be Auturo Lupoli,he will be heading to Mercyside with Everton.The young Italian centre foward bagged 17 goals in just 15 games for the reseves and is much better than Rossi of Man Utd.This is not my opinion but that of Parma youth coach Vito
Parsio back when the two players were under him.He stated that the loss of Lupoli was immense,failing to mention Rossi who left at the same time.Wenger as I mentioned earlier launched two bids,there are for Nuri Sahin the size of the bid is believed to be 7mil and Benzema of Lyon for 3mil.Anderson of Porto is being looked at.Wenger is expected to secure Fran Merida(the new Cecs) and Assulin Gai(the new Lionel Messi).
spurs are going to use the carrick money (18m) to buy wesley sneijder for 7.5 million, willy sagnol for 5 million and andre ooijer for 1.5 million. the rest of the carrick cash could be used to buy a 4th striker.
From the person who told you norwich were signing lee croft about a week ago, norwich are looking at putting a cut price bid together for out of favour sheff utd striker Goeff Horsefield, often the bane of many canaries fans as he has a good scoring record against them including one in the playoff final 3 years ago. Expect to see him and a young right back (Justin Hoyte likely on loan) come in as the only major signings, with Darren Ward heading to Leeds Utd. However, if west ham do come in for robert green in this transfer window, we will move for a new, younger target man, a creative central midfeilder and an experienced top flight goalkeeper. Names in the pipe line include, Bobby Zamora, Mark Noble (loan), Richard Wright, Darren Potter (loan), Freddy Eastwood, Billy Sharp, Lee Wilkie
There are 30 clubs across europe to have expressed interest in David Trezeuget, including Celtic, Bolton, Wigan and PSG of all teams. However his preferred choice (and likely destination) is to go to either Liverpool or Man U, where he will get Champions League Football, Regular 1st team football, and a dream move to England, as he fancies a new challenge, and the clubs here to have expressed an interest are bigger and more widespread than the spanish league, (his only other fancied league). There still may be a late bid from Barcelona however
Djimi Traore will complete a loan deal to Charlton this weekend. Stephen Warnock has been told that he has a future at Anfield, but Fulham are extremely interested in another loan move and Benitez would happily let him leave on a loan-basis.
Upon failing to land some of their top targets, Real Madrid will add to Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Cannavaro and Emerson by signing two wingers, Joaquin Sanchez for around £14 million and Ze Roberto on a Free transfer. Thomas Graveson will be allowed to leave as will Guti, however Capello will try to sign a good central-midfielder, and he will make big bids for Diarra and Kaka.
To the guy who said that man u, will replace their aging stars.- Guti is an aging star he is 29/30 years old. scholes is only 31. and is still a world class player. So that would be pointless.
But Man U will sign
Mascherano - 16 Million
Guti - 2.5 Million (As Back-up)
Lennon - 14 Million
Downing - 11 Million
UTD already have most of this money, but another major player will be sold which is C. Ronlado, o either Barce Or Valencia, For 28 Million
Jose Mourinho is after 1 more striker to add to Kalou, Drogba, Shevchenko and Crespo. Hernan Crespo looks set to leave, so Mourinho needs to replace him and wants to get 1 over Liverpool by snapping up, Benitez' long time Dutch target, Dirk Kuyt. Mourinho would pay up to £18 million for the Feyenoord striker, whilst Benitez would only pay up to £12 million for the prolific goalscorer. Expect Chelsea to wrap up an Ashley Cole deal next week.
Philip Mexes (defender of Roma) is in his way to London to sign for ARSENAL for 10 millions .
Celtic failed in bid to sign Lokomotiv Moscow striker Garry O'Connor. Not reported in any newspaper but 100 per cent true. Deal was too costly.
Luis Garcia will not be leaving Liverpool as Rafa sees him as a key player for european games. Dani Alves will sign in the next couple of weeks along with a quality striker, David Villa. If not Villa, it will be Kuyt or even possibly Defoe. Trezeguet will not be coming as he is staying at Juventus. Same with Zapater as he has signed a new deal at Zaragoza.
IT SADDENS ME BUT MASCHERANO IS NOT SIGNING FOR MAN UTD. THIS IS BECAUSE MARCO SENNA FROM VILLEREAL WILL ALSO BE TAKING HIS MEDICAL ALONG WITH CARRICK ON MONDAY. HE WILL BE SIGNING FOR A REPORTED 10M. I KNOW THIS AS I HAVE CONTACTS WITHIN MAN UTDS BACKROOM STAFF WATCH THIS SAPCE
Alex ferguson will bid for theses players before september.... Robert Green,stewart Downing, Aron Lennon, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Guti, Johnathon Woodgate and Thomas Gravesson.
Hi all.In my local last night ( in Belfast), I got talking to a Crusaders player who told me that next season, Dean Windass has agreed to join for a final hurrah. Apparently, this is a long standing wish of Dean's to play for the Hatchet Men.On the Crues!
Frank Lampard to Real Madrid or Barcelona after a falling out with the Chelsea management with regard to disagreement over off the pitch issues!! Watch this space!
Everton will sign
Liverpool are hopeful Kewell will agree to a substantial wage cut to get a move to Spain (preferable), or another Premiership club.
His 1st team options at Anfield are now restricted, but the relationship wuth the club is still fine. However the club very much favours getting the 200 grand per month off the wage bill, understandably.
Gonzalez has looked excellent in training btw.
All is not well on the sunny south coast.
Arry is not happy at the apparent vetoing by the board of Anelka. First manager out this season proper?
To the westham fan who siad thaty Ashton wouldnt come to us becasue we finished below u, get ure facts right please, we finished 7th U finished 10th. Glen Roeder has bin quoted as saying 'We have permision from 1 of the clubs for a player we would like to sign but the other players do not need permision from their clubs' hmmm i smell the bosman rulling here, maybes del pierro... I could see Ashton coming but not bridge as him and cole (when he goes) are the only LB's at Chelsea. But am not Notre Damus so these are just comon sense judgements. T.
Man u have finally become active in the market and will look to finalise all deals in a week. with carrick having a medical on monday he will be joined there by mascherano and kerlon. ferguson is also keeping taps on senna as he wants good competition for midfield places and alan smith has been restored to being a centre forward. also torres will be a utd player next summer when utd sell saha. this is the reason torres stayed in spain as the man utd management told him that they didnt want to break the bank to sign him now as there were more important areas to fill. because manchester is the only place torres wants to play he said that he would wait another season for his dream move.
ashton wont leave WHU, instead defoe is on his way to the toon for around 8 mil as well as anelka for a similar price as well. woodgate also in on loan to toon from real madrid
marcos senna from villareal 2 manutd for 7million definate carlos tevez spotted wearing a manutd shirt in brazil a possible signing - even better than torres
Except spurs signing an amazing young talent called Mohamed Zidan from Werder Bremen who spent last season loan on 1.FSV Mainz05.
Senna from Villareal to Man Utd for 8mill and Carrick to Man Utd for 18mill.
Rumours are Robinho will be bought for 25mill the same amount as Torres would have cost. Man Utd will have a strike force much better than any team in the Premiership and therefor will be the new xhampions.
I have it on good authority that Niall Quinn has had his scouts working around the lower leagues and has taken a liking to Scunthorpes Billy Sharp. He's 21 years old which fits Quinns thinking in terms of siginings, and he has faxed over an offer this week. Also Quinn is looking at Micky Bridges today as SAFC are over at Brunton Park playing a friendly and is looking to tie up a deal.
torres deal is back on man utd have made a £29m offer plus mikel. torres said he was going to stay cos atletic told him to if he ever wanted a move and so they could push his price up.
MAN UTD NEWS
IBRAHIMOVIC, TEVEZ, MASCHERANO AND CARRICK 2 MAN UTD BY END OF TRANSFER WINDOW
For the guy who said Ashton would not move to a club who finished below them last season this maybe true, but NUFC actually finished above West Ham in the premiership and GR was the highest placed English manager in the league last season.
Players In; Wayne Bride, SWP, Zebina, Harewood, (all likely) Klose, Ashton, S. Campbell (unlikley)
west ham will sign john paintsil,robert green for 2-3 million and also shaun wright phillips on a season long loan with a view to a permanent move also surprisingly .......... dean ashton will not be leaving.
Coventry City News
After receiving £500,000 for the sale of James Scowcroft to Crystal Palace and missing out on signing Lee Croft who has joined Norwich, Micky Adams will lodge bids for Shefki Kuqi (Blackburn) and Marton Fulop (Tottenham) and will offer trialists Jaroslav Drobny (Fulham) and Frank Songo'o (Portsmouth) contracts with the club.
wish these west ham fans wud get real. yes, its only rumours about harewood and ashton, i am relieved to say that as they r both useless and rnt gd enuff to play for newcastle. GR has already sed he wants players proven in the premiership, harewood and ashton has proven nothing, they r no better than ameobi. howeva, defoe may arrive for sumwher in th region of 12mil, along with bridge and SWP.
August 1st Portsmouth to unveil 7 new signings because Sasha Gaydamark takes complete control on that day an wants to unveil his new Portsmouth. Anelka,Defoe,Nugent,Fernandes,Dudek,an 2 others
Honestly will everybody stop with the Vieira - Man U claims, I've recently came back from spain and the main transfer talk is abour Villareals Senna to Man U for 3.5-5M. West Ham to sign James Milner as you probably know and the 'BIG' player AP refered to will be from one of the Prem top 4... Watch this space
ricardo 4 m (had a 3.5m bid rejected)
appiah 3 m
10million (8mill+carrick money+players sold)
Just heard that Charlton have agreed a deal with Newcastle for Amady FAYE with Jason EUELL going to the toon in exchange. No idea yet if any cash is involved yet.
for the clown who said united were going to sign jorge andrade.... dont talk rubbish. i believe united will sign another midfielder along with carrick, and it will either be mascherano or guti and also possibly tevez or trezeguet to replace the brilliant van nistelrooy.
Following up on the signing of Skacel Saints are talking to Liverpool about signing Darren Potter (following his successful loan last year) and Neil Mellor on loan.
They'd also like Richard Chaplow back from WBA but that seems unlikely!
Burley and the new board are also talking to Mr Wenger about bringing Walcott back home on loan for the season - apparently he regrets leaving the South Coast and his mates in the Saints academy who are a lot better than the Arsenal youth players he's now stuck with - he should have realised that when Saints youth beat Arsenal in 5 out the 6 games they played last season!
Expect to see Saints Academy graduates Adam Lallana, Drew Surman, Josh Dutton-Black, Nathan Dyer, Dexter Blackstock and Gareth Bale make a major contribution to Saints promotion push this season.
Saints are also interested in signing Hoyte and Aliadiere from Arsenal as well!
Higgingbotham, Kenwyne Jones, and Ricardo Fuller could all be on their way out!
lfc news.....ive heard that Villa will not be coming to liverpool. Kuyt will arrive for 10-11m and benitez will find funds once everything over the stadium and the krafts ends to sign Camoranesi. These are the last signings lfc will make this transfer period. Look for bigger names, i.e. Villa and Torres, to come next summer, or possibly, but unlikely January.
Liverpool haven't allocated Paul Anderson a shirt number for the forthcoming season, despite being considered as a pivotal part of Liverpool FC's future. The reason for this is that Rafa Benitez plans to send him out on loan to a Championship club, in order to gain further experience. Premiership side, Watford could take on the winger for the season, although Liverpool have strong connections with Luton boss, Mike Newell who wants to bring in the ex-Hull player on loan. There is a chance that Newell will seal a double-loan move from Liverpool for Neil Mellor and Paul Anderson, although he may prefer to sign Blackburn striker Matt Derbyshire.
Fernando torres is set to take a u turn and sign for man utd. Their is an element of politics here, torres wants to go but does not want to make it look like he demanded to go. He wants the club to accept a fee rather than demand to go. Man Utd have half of last seasons budget along with the this season aswell as mikel and ruud sales. This accumalates to around £35million. Utd will launch a bid in the coming weeks.
Mikka Koppinen is very close to signing a deal with Luton. He is over in Finland at the minute but will hopefully come over to England to sign later this week. Mike Newell has put offers in for Loyd Owusu and Izale Mcleod as he sees both of them as ideal replacement's for Steve Howard.
Newell has also made an offer for Calum Davenport although this is unlikley to happen due to Premiership clubs showing an interest.
Another defender Newell likes and had been to watch recently is Fulhams Zesh Rehman.
Tottenham are furious after man utd enquired about another one of their other young english internationals - Aron Lennon. The player is said to fancy his chances at a "big club". Lennon wants champions league football so he can finally dislodge david beckham in the national team. There was no chance of this under eriksson but he likes his chances with Maclaren. Tottenham could price him out of a move at 15 mill. Man u are prepared to offer 9 mill plus players.
Woodgate loan then permanent
To the lad who said liverpool will wait until September first to announce investment - u are 100% right. I believe Robert kraft has already "invested" 30 mill in the club which has and will be used on new players. In September he will get the club for 30 mill cheaper as he already paid it, if u know what I mean. The rest of the money will be spent on daniel alves and dirk kuyt.
Liverpool are set to do what man u couldn't and bring fernando torres to the premiership. They are currently preparing a offer of 18 million plus luis garcia and harry kewell. The player is said to be very keen after hearing great things about the club from the spanish l'pool players. He is also attracted by the number of spanish players at the club because he believes it will help him learn english faster and settle in the city.
firstly we could tempt any west ham striker to newcastle, but we prefer a better player in jermaine defoe who i am lead to belive will be unvailed a newcastle player monday at a press conference
Liverpool will sell Harry Kewell to spurs or a spanish club this week. They will look to replace him with fulhams luis boa morte. He will compete with speedy gonzalez for the left wing role. I've also heard rumours that rafa will bid for fernando torres but i doubt he has the funds. But what a signing that would be!!!! Daniel Alves deal looks to be back on after sevilla signed a right midfielder from stuttgart. Dudek will leave after carson signed a new contract. Traore will follow him.
i have heard from a reliable source that benitez will make these signings:
Ibrahimovic - 13.5m
Zapatar - 2m
Alves - 9.2m
We will be able to sign these because the Kraft family has already taken over but are not being anounced until the end of the transfer window so we can get players for cheaper.
This will be all the signings for this summer, but TORRES WILL be signing next summer once we have secured the plans for the new stadium in stanley park.
A friend of mine works at Old Trafford and has told me that Torres will definitely not be signing for Man Utd, he instead favours a move to Liverpool to team up with Rafa Benitez. Ferguson is apparently looking at bringing Tevez into the the side but this may be proplonged as the player wants to play another year for Corinthians, however the deal is meant to be a dead cert with Tevez only willing to join Manchester United. Vicente isnt bbeing lined up to replace Giggs or Ronaldo as SAF believes he is too injury prone. Carrick and Mascherano are definites but look out for a move for Simao as he is very highly rated by the Old Trafford board.
