Sir Alex to make a rade on the old firm in January
he wants two players from each, he wants Carlos Cuellar and Alan hutton from Rangers and artur Boruc an Scott Brown from Celtic, he also wants to sign Rafael Van Der Vaart from Hamburg
To the guy who thinks the 'rumour buzzing around Bolton' is that Anelka will leave for £12 million and we will replace him with Beattie – I take it you do not actually live in Bolton. Firstly, the Bolton board have stated that Anelka will only leave for a minimum of £15 million. Secondly, the forward Bolton are earmarking as a possible replacement is Jon Dahl Tomasson who Gary Megson was seen watching during the international break. James Beattie is taking Middlesbrough's fancy; not Bolton's. The Baptista move is exceptionally unlikely but possible. However, expect Megson to bring in a centre back and a winger to compensate for Diouf and Meite's abscenses due to the African Nations. Megson will have a maximum of £3.5 million with which to buy these players unless he sells Anelka. Chelsea, Man United and Manchester City are chasing him, but Chelsea and United are reluctant to cough up £15 million for a 28 year old who will be cup–tied for Europe.
Rangers to sign McFadden. Hutton will leave to Man United with Fletcher + £2.2 million in return.
Man United facts.
Fergie will buy only two players this January transfer. Heard it was going to be moutinho for £20 million and a left back probably Marcelo of Brazil or gareth Bale of Tottenham.
Sir Alex could be about to make a bid for AC Milan's Kakha Kaladze
Kaladze's situation at Milan is being monitored by Sir Alex after he admitted the left–back slot might need more support with only the fit Evra and versatile O'Shea able to play there, Silvestre can play there too but he's out until after the New Year with injury, so the Georgian international could be snapped up for around £4 million after Milan admitted he is no longer needed at the San Siro
Liverpool are to sign Valencia forward David Villa in the Summer for a massive £25 million + John Arne Riise. Dirk Kuyt will be going to Sevilla for £9 million. Sissoko will leave for £10 million to Inter and Mascherano's transfer will be made permenant for a negotiated £15 million fee. Kaka Kaladze will come for £4 million as will Ezequiel Garay for £8 million. Scott Carson will join Villa permenantly for £10 million.

There have been rumours that several Premier League clubs are looking at diminutive attacking midfielder
Tamas Hajnal. The brilliant Hungarian has been lighting up the Bundesliga for promoted club
Karlsruher, who are surpising everybody infifth place.
