BERGKAMPWORLD Arsenal have made the signings of Marseille pair Franck Ribery and Samir Nasri a priority in the Summer?Arsene Wenger lost out on the signing of Yoann Gourcuff to Milan last Summer and he won't let it happen again!
A deal for Nasri is expected to be in the region of £6million up front rising to £10million with appearances. It is also said that Arsenal have a verbal agreement with Marseille to sign Ribery this Summer if they do not reach the champions league.
Sheffield United are definitely set to sign Northern Ireland goal hero, David Healy from Leeds United in the Summer. Neil Warnock will pay up to £1.5 million for the prolific Ireland striker who has struggled to match the same international consistency at struggling Leeds United.
Everton striker AJ 2 sign 4 AFC that's why Efc want 2 sign Nugent, Flamini 2 leave AFC and move back 2 France . Ribery has said I will only leave if my club dosen't get in2 the CL and he will problay sign 4 LYON or Real Madrid as Madrid have already given an offer of 18m and AFC would have 2 give a better offer then Madrid 2 sign him .
Somewhat strangely, I saw Robbie Keane and Ian Harte at Waterloo train station this morning. I went up to Keano and asked for him to Autograph my rucksack. after he had signed I said "Robbie, you're not going to leave Spurs this Summer are you?' he said, and I quote 'No chance mate, I'm going no-where' THIS IS 100% TRUE I SWEAR ON MY MOTHER'S LIFE. Will all the posters who persist in fibbing that Keane is off to Villa or Celtic for a paltry six million pounds (he is worth at least 15m) please cease their nonsense, I have had it from the horses mouth, and so have you lot. Keane and Berbatov are Jol's first choice strike force and there is no way EITHER of them will leave, certainly not for Villa or the joke SPL
Milan Mandaric revolution at Leicester with the Summer signings of Inigo Idiakez and Chelsea youngster Michael Mancienne going into the centre of midfield. Srecko Katanec could potentially become the next City manager with a £10million warchest to get Leicester promotion.
This is an Arsenal loan alert based on what I've heard. Obviously Arturo Lupoli and Sebastian Larsson have completed permanent moves to Fiorentina and Birmingham City respectively, but the futures of Nicklas Bendtner, Kerrea Gilbert, Fabrice Muamba and Jose Antonio Reyes remain uncertain. Bendtner will return to the Emirates in the Summer to challenge for a first team place at Arsenal, but Kerrea Gilbert will complete a permanent move to Cardiff once his loan deal expires. Arsene Wenger has EmManuel Eboue and Justin Hoyte as his priority right backs, and it was the emergence of the young duo which ended Lauren's Arsenal career. Muamba will return to St Andrews next season for another loan stint, but I hear that he will sign for Fulham on a pre-contract in January 2008. Reyes, however, will not return to Arsenal as he constantly reitirates his desire to permanently return to Spain. Arsene Wenger is willing to lose Reyes without receiving a penny - instead he will offer the current Real Madrid winger the option to return to former club Sevilla in a straight swap deal for Jesus Navas. .

Celtic Manager Gordon Strachan was spotted walking out of Livingstons, Almondvale Stadium with Chief Exec Peter Lawell. Livingston attaker Robert Snodgrass walked out moments after, Snodgrass heading for Celtic in June
Expect Israeli youngster, Ben Sahar to be introduced into the Chelsea first team next season. Also expect Alex to arrive in England with a work permit and play alongside Terry. Micah Richards will join and 1 midfielder could come in. Quaresma or Simao is also a possibility with Wright-Phillips set to stay and get a better chance.
Lampard is off as is Joe Cole.
Cech, Richards, Alex, Terry, Cole, Quaresma, Essein, Ballack, SWP, Drogba, Shevchenko/ Kalou/ Sahar
Absolute rubbish that we will have nothing to spend. Smith/ Brown/ Durrant all on spying trips with a number of players being watched. Will have approx £11m, which is not bad considering the lack of Sky money.
Think Brown is a done deal along with Gow and Broadfoot. Looking at right back and 1 or 2 strikers
Why do people put their dreams on this website? All these players supposedly going to Liverpool is a load of mess. Villa is staying with Valencia. FACT. Lennon recently signed a new deal with Spurs because he knows he's at a gd club where he can play regularly and mature as he isn't yet the real deal. Ribery will go to Arsenal if he goes anywhere. Please stop putting rubbish on ere it's depressing and annoying as people may start believing it! Right now that's out the way here's a new fact. Healy to Bolton from Leeds, around 3 mill. Sheffield United also interested but I have heard from good sources Bolton have there man. HAZE
Rangers to sign S Brown, Gow, Broadfoot, Webster, Healy (Leeds), Koevermaans or Balaban, maybe Lovenkrands in swap for Buffel.
Out will go
N'Daye, Rae, Sebo, Novo, Adam, Sionko and Buffel
Manchester City will buy Chris birchall of Trinidad at the end of the season for £0.5m. Also looking at Eliot Ward, but may be put off by price quoted of £3m
Samir Nasri (Arsenal/ inter)
Ribery (real/ Arsenal)
Younes Kaboul, Marcel Jansen (Newcastle)
Metzelder (Real Madrid)
Bale, Nani, Quaresma (Man U)
Appiah, Cassano (AS Roma) (Appiah is worth more than 3mil I think
Kris Boyd (Newcastle)

Along with Scott McDonald. And another Defender, two other midfielders and JAmes McFadden as well as a top £5m striker

Real Madrid will show their depth finance again this year, they are expecting to dish out 100m euros on several players.
