Football Rumours Archive November 03 2008
Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
(Shaz#4 may want to read this) Much is being made of the disruption in the Arsenal dressing room, as well as some of the performances this season. . thses are worrying to any Arsenal fan, however, do not underestimate the faith the players have. Just because we have dropped points to poor clubs does not mean our highly rated players will leave, if Cesc and Ade where going to go, they would have already gone. Even if we do not win anything this season I would expect these players to have the integrity, and ambition to realise they are the core of the team, and personify what Arsenal are; a club of integrity, history and pure football.
With regards to siginings, it is well reported that Wenger enquired, but for several reasons was not able to sign any of the holding midfielders identified, so you would expect him to have scouted a list of targets for january, possibly:–
Obviously thses are only my interperetation of the evidence, in my opinion I would love to see the following become part of the Arsenal:–
. . and in a World where we didn't have the integrity we do, and accepted copious amounts of outside cash, these players would be on my hit–list:–
. and dare I say it; Flamini!!
((( AFC Bulletin )))
Gallas 2 leave AFC as might RVP,Toure, and some others come Jan .Its been known if AW is unable 2 sign Gareth Barry then he might try 2 bring David Bentley back 2 AFC . AW is also interested in making a move 4 Carlos Tevas and Klass Huntelaar in Jan .
Manchester United News: ~~
Fergie to offload Owen Hargreaves in January and to sign Douglas Costa from Gremio.100% guaranteed. most probably Hargreaves will be off to the blue side of the Manchester and Micah Richards could be heading to the other way. .you heard it here first. 'Senna'
Rangers will offload Allen McGregor too Spurs for £7.5 million in the January window, McGregor is keen too join up with his mate Hutton, Rangers will use the fee to sign Fletcher (Hibs), Langfied and Mulgrew (Aberdeen).
The truth at arsenal;
They gave 2 goals away in 4 minutes
They cant grind out a result
They cant defend set pieces
Behind the scenes there is NOTHING WRONG
Though the dressing room unrest stories are pretty funny!
Wenger will look to sign players in janurary as there will be many players available, he will try to sign;
Given/ Hart(wont get enough first team football when city sign Buffon)
Barry/ Alonso/ Y.Toure
A tall strong and quick center back will also be signed in the summer and Gallas will either go the other way in part–ex or to Barca as part–ex with iniesta.
The captaincy will go to Kolo and cesc will become vice–captain.
The departure list will look like this;
Wenger will leave arsenal as soon as the French national team job becomes available, probably in the summer. Marco van basten will take over as boss with dennis bergkamp as his number one. Expect some serious transfer activity during the summer, with huntelaar joining and adebayor leaving.
Man it's will confirm in March 2010 that fergie will be retiring. Although no announcement on a replacement will be made, mourinho hill take over once the season has finished. He will ask giggs, scholes and Neville to take major roles within the backroom staff.
Moyes will have a fair bit to spend in January as the takeovers are expected not to be done till March–May next year, but Kenwright has given him 10.5m on top of his 13.5m left over from the summer so he will have 24m. Which he will spend on:
(After being frozen out by Adams at Portsmouth)
(Another 4.5m over the next 2 years)
West Ham are closing in on a take over deal. Foreign investors fronted by ex Hammers striker Tony Cottee look set to complete a takeover by December. They are very impressed with Zola and intend to give him a decent war chest in January. All sponsorship deals have been put on hold as the new owners want to put their own in place. The only hold up is Gudmunsson ensuring that the Icelandic government are unable to take the money from him.
––––– POMPEY NEWS ––––––
With Harry Redknapp leaving Pompey to spurs, Pompey are going to be under attack with harry wanting to boost up the spurs side bringing in players from the south coast.
Niko Kranjcar – £10 mill
Lassana Diarra – £21 mill
Jermaine Defoe – £18 mill
Glen Johnson – £15 mill
Tony Adams is adamant about keeping these players, if portsmouth are to be a top flight team. But however the south coast club are enduring strong economic problems, struggling to have enough money, to lure players to saty at the club or bring players in.
Although there have been rumours about Arab Billionaires interested in buying the club with Gaydamac looking to sell up.
In the January transfer window Tony Adams is looking to bring players in:
Jermaine Pennant – Liverpool
Theo Wallcot – arsenal
Arron Lennon – spurs
Jermaine Jenas – spurs
Giovanni – hull
dirk kuyt – Liverpool
But there needs to be some sales done to get the players to get the cash flowing in:
Diarra is the most likely going to join Redknapp at spurs for probably £21 Million, defoe is also in the list to go to spurs but i don't believe he will join his former club.
Kranjcar is another player with a strong possibility of leaving with interest from wenger, redknapp, and benitez. however portsmouth wint let him go that easily, there will be a big price on his head.
these are all truth from a pompey player at fratton park anonymous
Everton will step up in their chase for Darren Fletcher with a 7 million bid
Fabregas will only leave Arsenal if we do not win anything this season, as he said in the summer. If he does leave, it will be to one of Barca and Real Madrid for around 60 mil (yes he is worth that). If he is sold to Barca, we will demand Yaya Toure in return (if we do not sign him in January), if we do then we will demand Iniesta. If he is sold to Madrid, we will demand Mohammed Diarra in return. Adebayor is going nowhere at least for another season as he has just signed a new 4 year deal in the summer. Clichy is going nowhere as he has signed a new contract in the summer. Sagna is going nowhere as he is happy at the club and only signed a year ago. Toure is going nowhere as his brother Yaya will be joining the club soon. Walcott, van Persie and Nasri are all happy at the club. The most likely to leave is William Gallas, as his attitude could cause conflict amoungst the team. If he is sold, we will sign a solid replacement and Toure will be given the armband.
The Arsenal Know It All
To the person that said "fabregas yes hes gud but not worth 65 million if he is worth that torres is worth abt 100 billion" i dare think how much kaka and Ronaldo are worth because they are 100times better then torres. anyways on to the rumour i have heard West brom might try a cheeky loan bid for Manucho in january to boost their fire power and tottenham could try to raid man utd for evans and foster to sure up their leaky defence and goalie position
MON has already tied up a deal to sign a mega star midfielder from Spain, a current spainish international. Will come out in the papers in late Dec if my source is correct. Also Rafa will make another move for Barry, but Gareth is more settled again now and is disappointed that Liverpool didnt make more of an effort to sign him in the close season.
Due to the recent bust up in the arsenal dressing room, the players who we love (arsenal 1st team), will disband – adebayor – roma (23 mill)
fabregas – Real madrid (28 mill)
Clichy – valencia (12 mill)
this will happen in the next transfer window many more players will leave and the harmony of the team will be broken
All Forest fans. . I told you that Cole was leaving and now I can confirm that Bent is on his way from Birmingham on loan to add firepower.Dan the ever so Main Man.
Gareth Bale can't command a fee of higher than £10m if he goes to one of the big four. This clause was put in his contract by his agent when he signed for Spurs. So for the "bin dipper hater" before you slag Rafa get your facts right. Bin Dippers top of the league.
––––AFC––––Arsenal will make a £15million double swoop on Standard Liege for Steven Defour and Axel Witsel.Arsene Wenger will also move for Leeds Utd youngster Fabian Delph.
Thirdtimelucky matias Fernandez plays for villareal i think u mean manuel fernandes and bojan is not worth 20 million diego is not worth 30 million inestia wud be abt 25 million moutinho wud cost more than 14 million coz they wanted 19 million off everton and no 1 in the world would pay 65 million for fabregas yes hes gud but not worth 65 million if he is worth that torres is worth abt 100 billion
Liverpool have been linked with scweinstiger (spelling) and fred (the striker that plays for Lyon)both on frees at the end of the season as their contracts are up at the end of the season we have been recently linked with xavi of Barcelona and Sergio Ramos of real Madrid because they are both currently unhappy expect a bid for Sergio aguero in the summer. we have also been linked with arjen robben of real madrid the spainish newspaper marca have said that rafa enquired about robben over the summer he could come 2 us because he won't have trouble settling in with kuyt and babel and many reserves are dutch but i cant see this happening after the arrival of albert reria would rafa waste 8 million he could afford to if sheik mohammad al rhaktoon(spelling the 1 who recently ditched dic 2 make a bid 4 us) takes over

The thing about Kris Boyd going to Nottingham Forest is perfect. Wonderful striker, just what we need! Steven Fletcher would be good too. Having Cole gone, I hope there is enough money to attract at least one of these players.
Blackburn rovers search for a right winger will end in the january transfer window as he will sign alexis sanchez 8–10mil or jermaine pennant 5mil.
villanuevas loan deal will be made permiment.
ince will try and sign emanuelson from ajax or real madrids marcelo for 13mil.
he will sign castro for 8mil or fucile for 6mil.
