Liverpool will bring in three players in January four if Marseille fail in the Champions League
1) bernard mendy to play right back
2) Rafa is deciding between three players depending on the clubs fortune for left back including phillip lahm as well as one less known from Eastern Europe
3) pandev of Lazio to play just behind Torres
4) Nasri if Marseille fail added to these will be a number of kids aged 18/19 includin centre back and right wing danish and argentine
MAN UNITED – Huntelaar on his way 2 United alond with veloso, hamsik, rosina, jotevic or menez, Fabio and Rafael deal already done last Summer. MAN UNITED100 percent
ARSENAL – ben afra and modric will come in and if Adebayor goes then maybe kenwye Jones will come in or gouaffran of cean French team
Chelsea – barry, daNeil Alves, lunhina, afonso Alves in out – Shevchenko, Lampard, Drogba, ferrera, kolou
United tried to sign Ronaldinho when he first started turning heads at Paris St. Germain but he chose FC Barcelona
They were still out looking for a true young flashy footballing star.
then they found Ronaldo. and then Nani along with Anderson. Obviously Sir Alex is loving these young tricky playmakers and he's going to continue to snatch them up. and obviously he's got his scouts packed in portugal, Veloso is most likely on the way every one knows that they probably have a deal agreed already and I am sure we'll see him in jan. if not definatly the Summer. Veloso would be the third sporting player to come to United in like 4 yrs or whatever it is. So who's next? a young Brazilian few know of–Celsinho
find out about him for yourself supposedly United going to get him in 09'
And I am surprised Quaresma is still at Porto, but I think someone will take him before the end of next Summer, I am actually shocked United did not sign him being he's portugese and Ronaldo like
Arsenal will not be as "busy" as these boards are saying. Do you ever know Arsene to make so many changes? Plus he has a good formula now, so knows not to fix something that ain't broken. Arsenal will simply do this: Out: Lehmann to FC Copenhagen; Bendtner to Benfica; Song to Stuttgart Kickers. In: Modric, Guzan (US GK), and Brazilian LW "Lenny"
Newcastle will buy Joseph Yobo from Everton to replace the leaving Steven Taylor. Everton will exchange Joseph yobo + £5 Mil for Michael Owen – a Long life Blue.
Newcastle will buy Romas Daniele De Rossi for £15 million.
GOOOONERNEWS Lassana Diarra is not going anywhere.Gilberto will be leaving in either January or next Summer along with Lehmann, Kerrea Gilbert, Jay Simpson and possibly Emmanuel Eboue.
Arsenal are looking at Jeremy Menez (as Monaco), Samir Nasri (Marseille) and Luka Modric (Dinamo Zagreb). Also expect a bid for Steven Taylor (Newcastle United) and French youngster Yohann Mollo (as Monaco).
Juande Ramos is going to ask Daniel Levy to put up money like Tottenham have never spent before. A lot of these players supposedly going to Arsenal, LFC, and Man United will be bound for WHL. Ramos has been an admirer of Nasri for instance and is asking for him. Nasri, Mexes, Kevin Hofland, Michael Parkhurst, Joao Moutinho, Daniel Alves, and Morgan de Sanctis are all on their way in before the end of next Summer. Out are Robinson, Stalteri, Routledge, Dawson, Young–Pyo, and Gardner.
Arsenal is the second Richest club but this does not mean they will spend big as Arsenal has always been as they have a policy of scouting for young talent rather than shopping in the transfer market. They only experianced players that will be bought are Modric, Marco Rossi (replace Toure for African Nations) Benni Mccarthy ( end of season if Da Silvia is not performing) Nasir (long term replacement of Tomas Rosicky) and Karim Benzema as he recently stated he wants to win trophies under Wenger. Ben Arfa is staying with Lyon as it is his childhood club. Diego Capel and Macauley Chrisantus will be coming in as there fathers have expressed that it will be the best place for there sons to bloom.
LISTEN CAREFULLY Anton Ferdinand will sign for Everton in January with Everton being offered £7 million + Ferdinand for Andy johnson. MARK THIS SPACE
Sammy Lee to be new Norwich manager.
100 percent fact.
Everton will sign Steven Pienaar at the end of the season for £2, 500,000 as per the purchase Clause in the loan deal. Thomas Gravesen MAY be bought, but it is a matter of whether he can sustain fitness throughout the season – he is getting on a bit.
Stephen Appiah is basically a done deal, and he will sign in January for £6, 400,000.
Stewart Downing is a target and although he loves Middlesbrough, a £10,000,000 bid (or something smaller including Van der Meyde) should get him should Everton have a good cup and league run, as well as qualify for UEFA.
Andy Johnson apparently wants to sign a new contract, but he apparently also wants to go home, to London (which is strange – is not he from Birmingham? ). So this is a tough call, but a bid in excess of £13,000,000 might be enough, as we can have a choice of Jermain Defoe (£9,000,000), Vagner Love (£10, 500,000), Afonso Alves (£9, 500,000) or K. Jones from Sunderland (£7,000,000).
To solve the right–back problem, Justin Hoyte seems a reasonable replacement for Tony Hibbert (£1, 500,000 to any Championship side) and as Arsenal may be looking to offload him, £2,000,000 should be good enough.
I work for a solicitors firm in Chigwell and have dealt with many Tottenham players and coaches in my time handling all their paperwork in house purchases which has opened many doors and having various conversations with players.
Now I am not one of these my dads, best mates, milkans, cousins, son is a scout or anything because so far all rumours I have posted have been true.
I told everyone about Tottenham signing Berbatov, D. Bent, Kaboul, G. Bale and hot prospect from Leeds Danny Rose.
Now with Jol gone I can state that because Ramos enjoys fast attacking football everyone will see Stalteri, Assou Ekotto, Cerny and surprisingly Bent going. Bent will go to Newcastle as a proven Premier League goal scorer with the imminent departure of Owen.
See players like Routledge get given a chance to shine and prove what the hype was about and a second chance for Ghaly.
In will be Riquelme, Alves, Kanoute, Palop and Shansuke Nakamura.
Because Ramos and the board believe thay can build a Champions League team Ramos will switch the teams around to ease Fixture congestion with one team for the league and another for all European and cup games.
Expect Liverpool to be spending again in January. Expect at least two new centre backs to come in as Hyypia will be kicked out the door. Probably someone like Vanden Borre from Anderlect or Kompany from Hamburg, someone with pace and power (something we really lack).
Also a finisher will come in, hopefully Defoe. Torres and Gerrard are the only ones who can score, expect Sissoko to go as Lucas is now ahead of him in pecking order. Crouch will stay and become pinnacle of attack after his substitute appearance against Arsenal. Will rotate Defoe and Torres around him.
Set to convert Voronin and Kuyt to wingers, and they are both up for the chop if that does not work out. Babel will leave in Summer if he does not get more games and Pennant will be sold with Aaron Lennon replacing him.
Benitez very unhappy and anyone who does not perform will be shown the door, including his golden boy Kuyt (he loves him for some reason even though he seems to be getting worse.)
Just you wait and see.

I work for the local paper and we are working on something big for next Monday.
Hearts CEO Roman Romanov is coming to Edinburgh. He is raging at what is happening and will make big announcements after Sunday's Derby.
A major name head coach will be appointed and he will announce a massive (for a Non Old Firm team) transfer war chest for January
Sorry I cannot say anymore.

My inside sources told me that of the Buzsaky rumour, which is now all finalised. He was approached by The Foxes, however we got there first. He was even at the game to watch us beat Charlton.
Anyway, a fresh rumour that we are targeting none other than David Nugent who failed to hold down a regular place in Pompey's setup. We hope to gain his services until at least Jan. Also, for next Summer, there is a strong possibility that the great Francesco Totti will come to finish his career at Loftus Road. Also, I feel I missinformed you on the Cranie transfer, as this looks like we will struggle to keep him for good now.
All this is things that are 100 percent being looked into.
Man United rumours
Anelka in for £11 mill
Saha to Lyon if still injured before xmas
Nasri to join £17 mill
Casillas in for around £9 mill
O'Shea to Newcastle for £7 mill
Fletcher to Sunderland for £6 mill
Jewell to Norwich as new manager. He will be unvieled Tuesday the 29th. Money has been offered by two board members (Not Delia) to help the club out, with possible outside investment also helping but not confirmed, source from within the club
Tottenham will have a massive clear out which is good knews for Celtic. With the current form of Scott McDonald Premier League teams are interested in him and he will leave for 10x what Celtic paid for him 6 million. He will be replaced by Robbie Keane who will be replaced by Kanoute at Tottenham
Juande Ramos was not Daniel Levy's first choice for the managerial post at Tottenham, it was in fact Harry Redknapp. Levy offered Redknapp the job over three months ago when he invited the Portsmouth man over to his house for dinner, with the intention of persuading him to swap Fratton Park for the Lane. Redknapp turned down the offer saying that he's walked out on Portsmouth once before and will never do it again, hence the reason why he has signed a new contract.
