"Carlos Tevez will be at West Ham next year. Only reason it's not been finalised is he's in Sth America playing in the Copa Cup. He will sign a permanent deal, do not know amount. I have been told that the West Ham Chairman wants to make a BIG signing and Carlos is his choice. " according to a poster.
Well, the problem is that West Ham are not the choice of Carlos Tevez. The latest I have been told is that Rafa is trying to work out a one year loan agreement for Tevez with an option of a permanent deal next summer. West ham CANNOT offer Tevez any European football, and Kia wants to increase Tevez's exposure through Liverpool's CL campaign. Secondly, his friend Mascherano has already done a deal with Liverpool and so the transition to Anfield will be a lot smoother for Tevez, his agent Kia and Liverpool
Javier Saviola will be unveiled as a Manchester City player by Wednesday. Rumour has is that there will be a few announcements on either Tuesday/ Wednesday including:
Sven being appointed new boss
City playing Real Madrid in a pre–season friendly
City signing Saviola
Oasis playing a pre–season gig at Eastlands.
I have just been told that Rafa Benitez has met with Kia Joorabchian (Tevez's representative/ owner/ agent) earlier today. Who told me this?
Kia Joorabchian himself. I saw him in Waterloo tube station an hour ago and asked him. He said he has just been to Liverpool and talks went well.

Sorry to Arsenal FANS. Arsenal have some big trouble ahead. They have lost their NO 1 HERO, the legend THIERY HENRY.
and now ARSENE WENGER is all set to join Real Madrid. Following him Kolo Toure, Cesc Fabregas and Theo Walcott will join Real Madrid. Arsenal may also lose Rosicky as Juve and Barcelona will fight for him after they fail for Lampard. so Arsenal got a new stadium last seoson, now they will get a new Manager, a new start
– – –
To all those speculating over Capello's successor at Real Madrid, surely the most likely candidate is neither Wenger nor Benitez, but Bernd Schuster. Given that Schuster has already told the press that he has signed a contract to be Real manager next season. Then again Madrid are prone to changing their mind.
If anyone were interested in why Reading have not released a new home kit. Reading Football Club are currently in discussions with a possible takeover by Red Bull. Red Bull have previously took over Austrian club Salzburg and American club Metrostars and seem keen on establishing their name in the Premier League and renaming the club to Red Bull Reading in a deal that could allow Reading untold Mills for wages and transfers. Talks are still in the early stages, but John Madejski appears keen on selling after failing to attract any Asian bids the past two years.
Apparently, this is a translation of an article that appeared in an Italian newspaper: –
Vincenzo Montella is desperate to return to England to play in the Premier League because he believes that he still has a lot to prove, both to himself and to the Fulham fans who, according to Vincenzo, took him into their Hearts.
"I would love to return to play with the Fulham team and the players that are now my friends. I loved London and the Fulham fans who showed me real affection and continued to chant my name despite my form not being that good.
I believe that Mr Spalletti would agree to let me return but it is up to the new Fulham Manager Mr Sanchez who, although I got on very well with and respect, may feel that I do not fit in with his future plans.
I have had approaches from some other very good British and European clubs but I believe Fulham have first option to take me back and I am very happy with that."

With pressure being put on the current Arsenal board by fans Wenger and senor Fabregas they will depart with kroenke taking over and bringing back dein. this probably will not happen till late aug/ sep so not many players of great significance will be bought in till January. maybe Babel sagna or Tevez if the price can be kept to under what is receved by outgoings but the ultimate signings for Arsenal this season will be Wenger and Fabregas.
