Football Rumours Archive August 03 2008
Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Rudolph Austin's deal to Stoke was merely a smokescreen for the fact that there is a lack of players at the club. There was not much chance of the player recieving a work permit and this was obvious from the beginning. Tony Pulis has now set his sights on other midfield dynamo's now rather than looking towards another Jamaican international. The club has it is mind set on another Reading player, believed to be England international Nicky Shorey who is also being tracked by Blackburn Rovers, Middlesborough and Wigan Athletic. The club are rumoured to be in talks with another party about a deal for one of the current promotion wininng team, believed to be Danny Pugh who joined at the beginning of the last season. The club who are chasing his signature are Lancashire club Burnley, and Owen Coyle needs the player to replace Jon Harley who left for London club Watford.
Sunderland attacker Rade Prica is leaving for the Norwegian champions Brann Bergen. Roy Keane is not happy with his performance and wants to cash in. SK Brann Bergen will pay approx. 1.7 million £ for him and he will sign a three year deal. My source is a friend of his who played with him in Helsingborg (SWE).
Back on topic, Sir Alex has confirmed Frazier Campbell will be staying at United next season so it looks like there will be quite a few disappointed fans of Stoke, Hull, Plymouth or Celtic as a few seem convinved you're getting him. In my opinion if he went anywhere on loan this season it should be Hull and this could happen in January depending on United's Carling Cup progress.
Also, when Sir Alex has been discussing his forward options he has not even mentioned Saha once. Looks like we are waiting for a club that has some extra space in the treatment room, He would fit in well at the Hammers or Newcastle.
David Moyes has had enough at Everton, and will be announcing his resignation before the start of the season. He will be joining none other than Man United as the Assistant manager with potential to succeed SAF.
Mario Gomez– Munich (first bid rejected)
Gabriel (not Diego) Millito– Tottenham
Right bhoy's who ever told you'se Clarance Seedorf was coming to paradise was obviously drinking with Gabrial in the Welcome Inn.

You know where you heared it first, KPSTAR
Everton up for sale.
The 400 million price tag will be put on the club before august 8th.
Apparently an Indian, Russian and a yank are interested. This however relies on the move to a new stadium. This will definitely happen. My Dad has just recieved a letter stating that the 5year block booking request on his box in Goodison has been rejected. They did however let him book it for 2years and advised him he would be automatically top of the list at the new stadium.
Anyway BK, Phil gregg and planet Hollywood guy have been arguing over money for some time. Although BK is the chairman, davey Moyes has to get permission from all three if he wants to buy a player.
P. S no deals to go through before 8th but expect them to be lined up ready to go through once BK sells up. Moutinho, Arshavin, Johnson, Owen, Veloso, Joaquin. I am not saying these are all going to happen but Moyes is looking for 3 midfield players and forward.
"remember the name"
Rafa Benitez is extremely pleased with his signing of David Ngog, however it's pronounced and will now confidently offload Andriy Voronin after one season at Liverpool. Hamburg, who are currently in England participating in the Emirates Cup will look to negotiate a deal for the Ukraine international on Monday. Benitez will also look to bring Dani Pacheco and Kriztian Nemeth into the first team next season. Jordy Brouwer will be allowed to leave on loan with Luton Town interested in taking on the young Dutchman for the season in League Two.
Man United could abort their bid to sign Dimitar Berbatov with a £16 million move for Roque Santa Cruz. Amidst losing his best players this Summer, Paul Ince is hoping Tottenham will accept £12 million for Darren Bent although his 7 goals in 3 pre–season games has made Ramos keen about keeping him. This will lead to Ince making a move for Louis Saha and possibly Kevin Doyle although Djibril Cisse is a major target for Ince.
The Hammers Rumours – 70–80 percent done
Hammers will sign Bresciano from Palermo for around £4.5 million, Leroy Lita for £3 million and if personal terms can be agreed then Mutu will be arriving on a season long loan with a view to a permanent move – you know where – Knowledge is the bomb
Man United news>>>
Ronaldo will be leaving for Madrid. and then Sir Alex will stun the football world by signing both. yes both Sergio Aguero and Karim Benzema for a combined fee of 65 million pound. it will happen./I do not claim to have sources inside Old Trafford but it's guaranteed.
and to Vakesh>> who is 'Bhongi' and who is 'anmole'. I assume the latter one to be Luis Nani. but who is the first one?
bill kenwright will sell the club, but he will not put it up for sale because he wants as much as he can get for the club, £100–130 million, so with this Moyes will get around 35–40 million to spend along with the £16 million spent on munthino, Robert earl will stay as a shareholder. anyway
–munthino (16 million)
–milto (£11 million)
–saviloa (around £8 million)
–miba (4.5 million)
1/2 more players in over the Summer Moyes has publicly stated his desire to bring in 5–6 new players (a new defender and an understudy to howard)
players Out: only 1 –
