With Bendtner not even included in the squad against Pompey, it is heard he is getting fed up at Arsenal and will probaly leave Arsenal come Jan. With Arsenal having signed Diarra expect Eboue to leave maybe 2 Spain, as 4 David Bentley it known he wants 2 move 2 a bigger club but so far there have been no major offers 2 his agent from any big club only Arsenal still have interest. So there is a chance Bentley might move back to Arsenal but only in a cash + player deal with Black burn Rovers if at all.
The following transfer rumours come from a source very close to the David Gill at Old Trafford.
last week Man United made moves for three players but all were rejected or out priced.
1. Defore– tot wanted £20 million
2. Mcarthy– Blackburn wanted £10 million (or cash + players up to the value)
3. Adriano– this almost went through until United medical team said that Rooney is highly likely to be fit after the international break. the Adriano deal would have been one year loan then option to buy for £12 million.
Man United hav instead decided to allow Saha one final chance to sort out his fitness until January if he can prove it then Dong will be slowly introduced as Fergie believes he is good enough to make it. United will only dip into the transfer market if there is any more injury problems. The plans are to next season bring in Huntlalear for £10 million or less as he will be towards the end of his contract and also bring in a winger as Giggs leaving will leave only Ronaldo Nani and Eagles. the early canditates are Quaresmo, Pederson or lennan.
the Hammers to sign Uruguayan starlet Paco Gonzalez for £7 million pounds from Independiente once the transfer window opens
Having Spoken to some close friends working at vicarage road is has been brought to my arttention that Watford are about to complete the season long loan signing of Wayne Routeledge with a view to it being made permanent at Christmas.
Darren Fletcher £4 million
Defoe £5 million + Bobo Balde
Harry Kewell £4 million
David Nugent (season long loan £1 million)
These will definatley go through if the mighty Celtic get through to the knockout round of the Champions League.
Zurawski £3 million–wisla krakow (polish team)
Jarosik £1.8 million Sunderland
Riordan £2.6 million Birmingham
These players will leave in the January transfer window, I know this for a fact because I am a friend of one of Celtic's youth coaches and he told me all the inside information, he also said that Celtic have a 16 year old Dutch forward who scored 36 goals in 47 games for the under 16's in two years, he's going to be the next Ruud Van Nistelrooy.
"little John 'the mole' watson"
To whom ever said Nicky Shorey's family members are all the Hammers fans, you are wrong. He stated on a certain Sunday morning football show that he and his family members supported Arsenal as kids.
England boss Steve McClaren may hand Scott Carson a shock start in the Euro 2008 qualifiers next week.
Everton news. A couple of days ago I posted news of 3 deals Everton failed to push through (Riqulme, Modric + Appiah). From the same souce I can safely say that Phil Jagielka will not return to Sheff United on loan.
Milan Mandaric could speak to Mike Newell, former Luton Town manager regarding the vacant managerial post but is likely to award it to Paul Jewell or Neil Warnock.
Arsene knowsLuka Modric will be Arsenal's only senior signing in the winter transfer window?
Youngsters Alberto Morgado (cd alaves), AlFred N'Diaye (as nancy) and young Brazilian Neymar (santos) could all be added to the Arsenal youth ranks.
Alex Brosque, who has been called up for Australia to play in Argentina, will make a loan move to Sunderland from Sydney FC. This comes on the advice of Dwight Yorke who played against him in the A–league in Australia. This is not a rumour and will be announced shortly before the Aussie–Argentina match on Sept 11.
Overheard Central Coast Mariners (Australia) management about securing a player/coaching role for Harry Kewell. Apparently Harry's injuries will not heal properly and he cannot commit to the pace of EPL. A–league have agreed to subsidise this move to start to get more big name players back to Australia.
Michael Ballack will leave Chelsea in January for around £8 million with Lyon a possible surprise destination although Real Madrid remain interested.
Tom and George want to make sure that the impetus is maintained by Liverpool throughout the season and so have told Rafa that he can spend again in January and have provided a more or less unlimited warchest. Expect bids for Micah Richards, Giorgio Chiellini, Ricardo Quaresma, + a swap of Crouch for Berbatov + £12 million. We will then have the best squad in the World.
