Moutinho will sign for Everton–FACT Obinna will also sign–FACT Saha will sign–FACT A top class winger will sign–Maybe
Man United will not sign Karim Benzema because the player will only move to Barca or Madrid.
To the guy claiming that Arsenal signed Kerlon, I would suggest actually reading the Cruzeiro website, which suggests that he as in fact been sold to an Italian businessman, and will initially play for Chievo
Re;birmingham city fan vennegoor for jaidi is a joke.jan is goin nowhere. but mc fadden to celtic is a cert.plus a top left back before 12 noon sunday
This is not rumour but a fact. .
Just saw Patrick Viera at the emirates stadium for the Arsenal Match against Newcastle. .
This deal has been concluded. . expect a official confirmation anytime in next 24 hrs.
Man City have had quick easy dealings with Kompany and Zabaleta. As a result they were hoping to push through deals for Brazilian Olympic team memebers Thiago Neves from Fluminense, and Hernanes from Sao Paolo who has been compared to the likes of Kaka and Redondo. Another player they are looking at is Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso, although the deal is unlikely to be completed by deadline day.
To the person who said arsenal had signed Kerlon from cruzeiro, get your facts right. Kerlon has just put pen to paper on a loan deal with Chievo from Italy.
Only likely arsenal signing is Miguel Veloso, or if not, watch out for the return of Vieira.
One of these two will be signed by tuesday morning.
Thierry Henry was in Manchester on thursday as confirmed by Ian Wright when Shaun was having his medical– many people thought this meant Henry to United but he will make a shock move to City
City have obtained investors from Dubai and Henry has a good relationship with Garry Cook as both used to work with Nike– and City want a superstar after the Ronaldinho pursuit failed
I don't think Carl Fletcher will cost Cardiff City just £40,000 as he is highly rated back up to the first team and he is only on the transfer list to raise funds for a new striker. Anyway Plymouth Argyle are expected to sign him for around £500,000 so Palace will use the money to buy Danny Webber and Jon Stead from Sheffield United.
Can i just clarify a few fings up about Newcastle, i am a Newcastle fan nd i would not be suprised to see Michael Owen leave he has publicly declared he loves the north east and Newcastle but he sure isnt happy about the sale of Milner and also about the way the board are treating him about a new deal Keegan says that milner was his sale bt i don't fink it was ther is alot of unrest behind the scenes of St jame's park and keegan has stated that every player at the club has their price so sounds like the whole team is up for sale we will not sign anyone is mick ashley is a fat greedy twat who just wants to make money not spend it on improving the squad. Also about Berbatov i just want to say that he is a Newcastle supporter and has been since he was 17 when we played a bulgarian team in the uefa cup or champions league and shearer gave berbatov his shirt after the match berbatov used to wear the shirt for bed but i can say 100% that he would not sign for us we are not good enough anymore and ashley won't spend a penny like i said earlier he wants to make a profit. The whole club is in tatters and may be about to do a Leeds don't be suprised to see keagan walk out again sometime soon.
Big Jan will not be leaving for birmingham, there has been interest from several teams but the big man will stay for at least one more season.
Steve Fletcher from hibs will join on monday with possibley riorden, mark brown & killen +£2M going to hibs.
Still hopeful that a left back will be signed as naylor isnt the answer. A few names have been mentioned over the close season and peter lawell said that they are still trying to bring in more players.
Wee Gordon will again keep some of his pocket money until january to see what areas need improved just like last season when he brought in sammy, robson & hinkle. Expect to see McArthur and/or McCarthy from hamilton in january if they show they can cope well in the spl. Should be able to get both for approx £2.5M.
It seems that the quaresma deal with inter has collapsed as the president of inter refuse to pay such money for the talent and it seems really that liverpool has being favourite to sign him.
Berbatov in shock move to Villa for agbondalahor
and 11 mil. Arsenal to tie up signing Dean sturridge and micah richards for 22mil total. Riera to liverpool for 10 mil and pedersen will complete a 10 mil signing to everton with vaughan going the other way to blackburn on loan.
Expect 3 new signings at arsenal before the deadline.
Miguel Veloso from Sporting.
Santi Cazorla on loan from Villareal (Villareal hope to sell him in 1 years time so are loaning him to the premier lge to hopefully boost his value.)
Could be a move on the cards for owen as he was allegedly spotted at the emirates on saturday evening, oh yeah he was playing there!– Though it will be either him or Henry, if Henry is left out of the barcelona line–up things could get very interesting– but we'll just have to wait and see!
OK let me start off by saying Arsene Wenger will not be signing patrick vieria, just because he was sat next to silvestre during the game against united doesn't mean he's going to join, he's often at Emirates, but of course its transfer window and people love to spread stupid rumours. and secondly Kerlon is not signing with arsenal, because he's currently training with chievo in italy. Arsenal wouldn't need to waste money on an untalented player, big whoop he does the seal dribble like a thousand of other people can. and he's worse than RVP when it comes to injuries.
