Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Liverpool are interested in the following players Daniel Alves, young Udinese defender Zapata, Ogbuke along with Arsenal, Marchioni, Higuain, Nani, Daniele Cacia and Huntelaar. Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting Liverpool will sign all of these. Also every big European club will offer Nesta a contract, but expect him to end up with fellow Italian international Cannavaro at Madrid. Apparently Benitez is taking a serious look at Reina's form, and from what I heard he is interested in Ustari and Amelia.If Celtic midget Shaun Maloney does not sign a new contract, Strachan will try to sign Beckham in Jan, although his wages will be a stumbling block. Ryan Giggs is also a possible target with Scott Brown of Hibs while Neil Lennon will sign for Martin O'Neill's Villa in Jan if Celtic are out of Europe. O'Neill is interested in Celtic's Balde, Thompson and Lennon but not Maloney, who if leaves will sign for either Newcastle or Man Utd. Celtic will try and boost their attack in Jan with Everton's James Beattie.
BOONDOCKLiverpool is having a Conflicts between manager and director. Some of the boards have support rafa decision, but have reminds rafa to improve the club's financial and to be caution of buying players. Rafa will have to sell either of his best players in order to generate a transfer funds. Expect to see Alonso, Garcia and even gerrard if a huge tranfers fee came in.Benitez to raid Udinese for £10 million in January.
But NOT for Iaquinta. .for Antonio Di Natale!
Rafa sees him as the perfect support for Kuyt.Liverpool News:
Firstly,Stevie G won't be leaving and if he did it would be for Real Madrid or Milan.Now to the transfer news, Liverpool will be buying G.Milito of Real Zaragoza for 7m or Colocini from Deportivo for 6m to replace Sami Hyypia. Their will sign Galetti from Atheltico for 4m or Stewart Downing for 8m to replace Harry Kewell. Lucas Neill will also be bought in to replace Neill Finnan for 3m. They might also buy Simao for 12m but only if they sell a striker.
Firstly,they won't be buying Torres.Lampard will stay at the club. Joe Cole and Arjen Robben are the most likely players to leave with they final destinations being out of the following teams: Barcelona,Inter Milan,AC Milan,Man Utd,Real Madrid and Arsenal. Chelsea will be buying a striker in the form of Higuain for 9m or Klass Huntelaar for 12m or David Villa for 25+. They will buy Camoranesi for 7m and might even sign Nesta for free.
Manchester Utd News:
Man Utd transfers in January will be Hargreaves for 12m from Munich,Nani for 7m from Sporting,Castillo for 5m, Higuain for 8m and Freddy Adu for 3m. As all of you know Man Utd has a transfer kitty of 35m(20m+15m left over). But there will be a few players leaving in the form of Silvestre for 6m to Lyon and Richardson for 4-5m to Charlton or Totenham. In the summer Man Utd will only sign two to three players in the form of Torres for 26m and Heastead for 3m and may consider swooping for Nesta for Free.In to all of you who think C.Ronaldo will sign for Madrid, you all are crazy. He's very happy at Manchester and the only reason United sold Nistelrooy, was that both of them couldn't play in the team. So tell me why would he join Madrid????????Liverpool will not sell gerrard to real madrid but maybe chealsea he is clearly upset with the postion hes in.They will also sell garcia.With the 40 million liverpool will buy huntallar(15 mill)and robinho for (10 mill)because hes had a couple of scraps with team mates at real madrid thay will buy lucas neil(5 mill).Man unt will sign torres and anton ferdinand and will loan out alan smith to newcastle.This is a message for 'v1' - Fran Merida is already an Arsenal player. He joined in the summer and is a regular in the youth team. Sort out your facts before posting a rumour. As far as some potentially real Arsenal rumours, the Swiss youngster Julian Esteban has been firmly mentioned in the tabloids as being a Gunners target. He plays for Servette and, although Bolton are also interested, he would favour a move to the Emirates because his fellow countrymen Johan Djourou and Phillipe Senderos, a former Servette player himself, ply their trade there.Since the story broke a couple of weeks ago, all I've heard is Jose Mourinho wants to join Inter Milan. Mourinho admitted last season that he's considered leaving Chelsea and apparently this season is likely to be his last at Stamford Bridge. Inter have a very stro
ng squad as it is with players like Adriano, Patrick Vieira, Luis Figo, Alvaro Recoba, Hernan Crespo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marco Materazzi, but Mourinho would undoubtedly look to strengthen the squad further. Roberto Carlos is one player who has been linked with a move back to his old club, while Mourinho would look to take Claude Makelele, Ricardo Carvalho and Carlo Cudicini with him.To the idiotic rangers fan who thinks they are a big club. newsflash son ya not even the best team in glasgow.Newcastle are a great team just lacking the missing peices of the jigsaw and we will win trophies. you may of won trophies in scotland but your league is like a micky mouse league. if nufc were in that leauge we'd win every single game.
hibbert-4 mil(to replace carr)
carr- loan championship side
butt- mackems 2.5mil
nzogbia- arsenal in exchange bentner heading for the toon!
nufc 4 a trophy this season!I was up liverpool saturday and steven gerrard has split with his bird alex curran, because she has been playing away with a scouse lunatic. the youngest child aperently is not gerrards and he wants a dna test. gerrard will be off in the summer with a move 2 spain the most likely destination being real madrid, although barca are interested aswell.as a neutral i would jus like 2 say that glasgow rangers are a much bigger club than newcastle united.REDS NEVER SAY DIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
Now to LFC news from the back room:
As I have said before the deal for Gonzalo Higian has already been signed for £ 2.5m as MSI own this player that is why he is a bit cheap.
Rafa is making up his mind on one forward Caccia of Piancenza or Caracciolio of Palermo both are 23 years and will come in the region of below £ 5m.
In addition Rafa is currently negotiating with Bordeaux for Chamakh who is an excellent header and Rafa sees him as even better than Torres.
Daniel Alves is not helping in negotiating with Sevillia so the move stalled again and Rafa is currently looking for Young of Charlton £ 2m??
Rafa is also looking for Bayern Munich RM Dieseler who would not be cheap but Rafa thinks that he is a more mature player than Simao and would adapt with no time with the EPL.
That's all Folks.
RED FOR EVER NEVER SAY DIE AhmarilynV1 - Arsenal's reps looking at Fran Merida - spot on mate! BUT, only because he turns out for their youth team every week ya tool!
Not a rumour as such, but have heard that the recent "rift" between Gerrard and Benitez is a fabrication stemming from a story that ex-Manc Paddy Crerand has been putting about - this has come from Dave Usher on TLW by the way, who as far as I've seen seems to call these things correctly!I am a liverpool fas and i will tell the other liverpool fans to stop saying that Steven G will go out in jan or summer. Yesterday or Sunday, he said that he will kept the captain and never plan to sell him. And also real fans. stop dreaming that u would get the best midfielder. Never!
Liverpool would have a chance to sell steve finnan and but either Sergio Ramos or Daniel Alves. Lucas Neil signs a pre-contact with reds and surely he will come this jan. Simao will be replace harry kewell because he have to long injury so rafa need to sell him to any club like: valencia, spurs, newcastle, everton, and benfica. Kevin nolan will think first that he will stay in bolton or not. Torres and Villa would never come to anfield. Trezeguet maybe come to liverpool if he is not to happy to stay with juventus. Kaka and j.cole have very less chance to come: I think only 0.0001% Gerrard is happy to play on the right. That why the England Manager pick him to stay at the right side. Hunterlaar maybe come to anfield in jan or summer. Nesta will have a free transfer to Chealsea or Liverpool. Hinguain will come to Reds or Manu.
Liverpool transfer for jan:
Finnan £4mThe glazers will try to sign beck's in jan because they know this will send revenue at old trafford soaring and beck's want's out of real aswell.But he won't get his game because gigg's and ronaldo are first team regular's and nani will arrove in january aswell along with higuain or anderson smith will go out on loan to either pompey,villa or wigan then fergie will start using solskajer as a striker until the summer when either toress or castillo will arrive.Also expect nesta in on a free and probably gigi buffon because he is fed up at juveand more than likey m.richards.
man utd's team 2006/2007:
van dr sar/buffon
neville/richards vidic ferdinand evra/heinz
nani higuain/anderson ronaldo
toress/castillo/saha rooneyGOOONERNEWS Fran Merida Perez signed for Arsenal in the summer!He has already played for the youth and reserve teams,so please get your facts correct before posting complete rubbish.Franck Ribery has made it clear to Marseille that he will be joining Arsenal in January or in the summer,his agent is under instruction to start proceedings as soon as the transfer window opens?He has also said that he will not talk to any other clubs.AW has said that he will not be signing players in January so that he can get Ribery,Gordon and Nuri Sahin in cut price deals?Remember he wasn't going to sign anybody last January but he signed Walcott,Diaby and Adebayor.Klass Jan Huntelaar is being scouted for a potential summer move to the Emirates.Team from january:
WebberUnsworth, ifill, shipperley and lucketti to leave in january.
killgalon, brown, koumas, nunez and edwards to come in january.
nunez might be earlier becoz he is free transferFirstly Celtic are not interseted in Beckham. Strachan has publicly stated this. Gattuso will not return to Rangers as he wants to end his career at Milan. The player has publicly stated this. Juninho will not move to Rangers next year. He has no intention of leaving a Lyon team who are guaranteed last 16 Champions league football for a team that struggle to qualify for the tournament. Rangers will sign Scott Brown. Celtic will sign Keven Thomson. Whittaker will join WBA.OK, Man Utd are playing great football once again and look likely to push Chelsea all the way this year. The reason why the midfield and forward lines are playing so well is the fact that they know big arrivals are imminent and want to keep their places. Firstly, Hargreaves will be moving to OT in January for around £10 million. Next, Nani is on his way for around £7 million. A striker will be signed (but maybe not until next summer) and the most likely candidate at present is Huntelaar from Ajax for around £12 million, as SAF has went of Torres (feeling he might not be able to adapt to the premier league). Another on the radar and almost certain to join is John Heitinga who is 23 this year, will be a replacement for Gary Neville and wil cost around £5-6 million.Arsenal's transfer war chest has been bolstered by the increase in ticket revenue from the new stadium. The funds have now been secured for a number of experienced stars to help bring the young players through. If all goes to plan, Nedved will be signed from Juventus, and Walter Samuel will also be signed, while the transfer for Gareth Bale has been finalised.
-6-Hi there i have some new news regarding man united and torres. I have heard from my brother in spain that yes he is contemplating switching to his clubs arch rivals real madrid as they see him as a long term replacemnt for ronaldo and raul. i know this will annoy the man u fans on here but i have this on great authority and my brother also tells me that if it is not real madrid then it will be valencia. the spanish local newspapers are stating he is more than happy in spain and wants to continue in spain for the next few years. Also, i cannot see gerrard moving from liverpool the two go together like bread and cheese. it is rumoured as well that man u are looking at freddy eastwood of southend. the two teams meet in the carling cup in a weeks time so SAF gets to see his capabilities first hand. however this is not a huge interest by SAF as he if he does go for eastwood it will be too loadn him out to a lower premier league team. it is rumoured that west ham and wigan would be interested. all of these are exactly wat i have heard from local papers and the local grapevine.Nigerian "Chinedu Ogbuke", Ogbuke known as Edu in Norway, has bagged eight goals in just 12 games so far this term and that looks to have alerted numerous suitors to his potential to Chelsea
Again Chelsea are known to have been tracking Ogbuke since before his move to Norway - and so with Jon Obi Mikel , Chelsea could very well have a distinct advantageI have heard a rumour that Celtic are interested in signing everton forward James Beattie on loan. Strachan worked with Beattie at Southampton and got the best out of him, and it is rumoured he feels he can get Beattie playing at the same standard once more.Can I just state that Steven Gerrard will NOT be leaving Liverpool this season. He is happy at Anfield and his realtionship with Rafael Benitez and the other Liverpool players is fine. He is fine with the position he is playing in and still believes that Liverpool are in the title race.To the guy who said that fran merida will be signed by arsenal for £10million - doubt it as he has already signed! read a youth report on the official arsenal website he signed about 6 months ago. Anyway on with the rumours - adebeyor to be kept until summer at arsenal in an attempt to get his value up, he will then be sold and niklas bendtner (spelling?!?) will be given a chnce along with aliadiare(ditto ?!?) - also expect arsenal to ease back on the beautiful football in away games and in champion league as wenger knows its defencive brilliance that will bring success. After all iits pointless scoring 5 if you let in 6 etc. so expect to see denilson and diaby (when fit) in the team more often. Even still the beautiful football will always rule at ashburton, and wenger will continue to produce gold from lead , so to speak.
stan the manTo the Rangers fan what is your problem? Back off! Luca Toni to sign for the toon in January as Fiorentina as going no where! Should have bought him in the summer. Mini TottiRonaldiniho to -AC Milan
Dider Drogba to -AC Milan
Andrea Pirlo to- Manunited
Gianluigi Buffon to- ChelseaTo the absolute idiot who claimed there were maybe 'only 4 or 5 clubs bigger then Rangers'. I count Manu U, L'pool, Chelsea, NEWCASTLE YES NEWCASTLE, The 2 spanish giants, Both Milan clubs, Juve still, Bayern Munich, Lyon and lets not forget CLETIC to name but a very few. Rangers are equal to a below mid table EP team. FACT! The amount of trophies they've won is nothing when you consider they've no european honours and scottish cups are worthless ( two hoarse race ALWAYS ). there i've done my ranting. RUMOUR-> NRC to leave West Ham, however not to a top 4 club but to Everton, . sayonaraLuton Town defender Kevin Foley could be set for a £2 million move to the Premiership next summer. Aston Villa were interested under O'Leary but it now seems that Fulham are favourites to snap up the young Irish defender.
