Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
I am a die hard Manchester United fan and I know no one in football biz. However, these are all what I hope to see happening in this Summer trasnfer: IN Riquelme (15M) Torres (25M)Hargreaves (8M) Lennon (8M) Simao (12M) Ribery (12M) TOTAL 80M OUT Ronaldo (20M to RM, who can forgive his involvement in getting Rooney sent off?) Fletcher (5M to Celtic, who needs him anyway?) Richardson (5M to Wigan) Silvestre (5M to Lyon) Evra (5M to PSG) RVN (12M to Milan) Smith (8M to Spurs)TOTAL 60M. And finally fire Ferguson for his blindness for supporting Ronaldo and Fletcher all this while. GET LOST, FERGIE.
everton have made some good signings and willing to look for some more but will not be spending alot of money untill he sells some players expect naysmith to leave for about 1.2mil and davies to sheffield united everton will sign malbranque or barton and will sign benni mcarthy and the man who sed johnson and lesscott didnt go trainin go on evertons website and johnson and beattie are warming up together
c ronaldo is on his way out of man u, but 'the special one' is eyeing up a move for his compatriot, in a swap deal for robben, who fergie wanted in the first place.
Mike Chivers will be signed on a free transfer from Stoke, the England U17 forward will move to Coventry on a free transfer. Micky Adams sees him as a player for the future, but also is looking to add to his striking options having missed out to Blackburn in the race for Francis Jeffers
Many people think that the Daniel Alves deal from Seville has stalled but Alves will push a deal to go through and Seville are going to accept at around £8.5 million. He may be unveiled alongside Mark Gonzalez, Gabriel Paletta, Fabio Aurelio and Craig Bellamy on Thursday's press conference at Anfield. The final signing or signings may have to wait a few weeks as Benitez prepares to make an offer for David Villa who wants to join Liverpool but realistically is very expensive. Benitez may pull of a deal worth around £15 million + Sanz Luis Garcia who is highly rated in Spain.
If the Alves deal doesn't go through, Benitez may make a £12 million move for Joaquin or Simao.
There is still chances for Muntari, Aimar, Dirk Kuyt, Maxi Rodriguez, Hatem Trabelsi, Alberto Zapater, Dario Srna, Jermaine Pennant and Ludovic Guily. Expect a Liverpool press conference this week to definitely reveal several of the signings, most of which are known.
spurs will come back with a last minute bid for marlon harewood 2million plus Defoe! spurs were impressed with harewoods performance in the premiership and finishing the 2nd highest english goal scorer in the premiership!
In the aim to play Champions League football to improve their performances for England, Tottenham will be selling:
Carrick - Utd - 14.5 Mill
Robinson - Arsenal - 11 Mill
Defoe - Liverpool - 6 Mill
King - Chelsea - 17 Mill
Also leaving will be Mido(loan ends), Davids, C.Davenport and a host of fringe players. The money gained from sales will be spent on players, but I dont know who they are yet, I imagine they will be from the French and Dutch League. But with key players leaving the calibre of players being quoted on here i.e Mascherano, Martins, Van der Vaart, Ibrahimovic etc, will not be joining.
LIVERPOOL HAVE ALMOST COMPLETED THE SIGNING OF BENFICA WINGER SAMOA SAMBROSA ON A 4 YEAR DEAL FOR A FEE OF 9.5 MILLION
man utd have almost completed the signing of benfica star armando petit in a 3 year deal
After failing to land him last season.
Edgar Davids will join on a free transfer to Birmingham City. He will become their new captain
ipswich are looking at a possible swap with david healy for darren currie, this would mean the end of sam parkins nightmare at ipswich and would leave for a fee of around 250,000 with northampton the interested party, also magiilton is looking to offload forster and bring in fuller of southampton also other possible targets are- clapham of birmingham, miller of sunderland, holland of charlton, pique (loan) form man utd and hoyte (loan) from arsenal, expect some big changes at portman road
Carlos Tevez will be a Chelsea player by the start of the season.I thought he would stay in Brazil for another season but the situation has changed due to the fact that Hernan Crespo will leave the club this summer.Crespo is on his way back to Italy after Abromavich has reluctently agreed to sell the player.Tevez will cost 25mil and form a formidable Chelsea attack with Sheva,Drogba and Kalou.
A left back will be signed being either Phillip Lahm or Ashley Cole both costing between 15-20mill.This will open the door for Aisier Del Horno to leave the club just a year after joining.Real Madrid and Valencia are reportedly interested with a fee of around 6-9mill most likely.
Arsenal striker Jeremie Aliadiere is convinced that he can force his way into the side this season. However, I have reason to believe that QPR are monitoring his situation and are plotting a season long loan bid in order to make him their first choice striker.
Just to clear up a few things regarding arsenal. Carlos Salcido is an arsenal target but plays left midfield and is 24 yrs of age so Arsene Wenger is likely to sell Ashley Cole if this target is to be persued further, also to the person who said arsenal are on good terms with salcido's club Chivas because we bought carlos vela of them, know your facts !!! we bought vela of "Guadalajara FC" not "Chivas." Also i'd like to say Thuram will sign for arsenal as a replacement for both Cygan and Campbell, Trabelsi has a deal sorted with liverpool and its not now just up to liverpool to finalise it since they are not gettin Alves. I hope Mascherano signs for arsenal but its seemin unlikely at the moment and 10 million is the deal put out there for dirk kuyt who'll wear the number 10 shirt at Arsenal. Hope this clears sum stuff up.
ARSENAL NEWS Torres,Mascherano,Carrick,Kerlon and Ribery to Man Utd?HA HA HA!dont make me laugh Utd have NOT got the money.The Glazers are already losing £12million a year in interest on their loans,Utd will be lucky to have £20million to spend and will have to shop at the lower end of the market now as Arsenal have for the past 10yrs.Its funny though now Arsenal have plenty of funds to spend and Utd dont.Arsene Wenger will look to spend some of his £40million transfer kitty this week on Yaya Toure(olympiakos)or Javier Mascherano(corinthians),Dirk Kuyt(feyenoord)and an unamed centre back thought to be either Phillipe Mexes(as roma)or Curtis Davies(west brom).It has been heavily rumoured in both Brazil and Argentina that Corinthians have agreed a £14million deal with Arsenal for Mascherano?He has also been seen and photographed wearing an Arsenal t-shirt just days before leaving for the world cup.None of these are his main transfer targets though,that honour belongs to Nuri Sahin(borussia dortmund)who looks likely to follow his hero and mentor Tomas Rosicky to Arsenal.
Manchester United are about to sign Michael Carrick for £14m, following the arrival of Didier Zokora at Spurs. This is due to be announced next Monday.
Manchester United will announce on Monday the triple signing of Mahamadou Diarra, Fernando Torres and Michael Carrick, for £18.85m, £24.45m and £14m, respectively. I know this as I have been asked to attend the press conference at Old Trafford, and I have been told what it us about, as it was leaked outside the ground on Friday. Looks like United could return to the pinnacle of the League!
Philip Lahm will be a Chelsea player after the World Cup after the club agreed an astronomical deal with the left back's club Bayern Munich.
mitchell cole to sign for sheff utd im a southend end fan and ive heard 1 of teh staff saying hes off to brammel lane theres also a rumour freddy eastwood could be on his way to the steel city and to the blades
Manchester United have basically already signed Fernando Torres for £25m. It has become increasingly obvious that Cristiano Ronaldo might be leaving. IF he does, Sir Alex will look to Ribery (£7-10m) or Joaquin (£12m, will fall like a domino if Fernando Torres is reeled in). Other signings will include Hargreaves (£8m), Mascherano (£12m) and Kerlon(£8m). Man U will be able to afford this because the Glazers have given SAF £30m + £10m from Chelsea for Obi Mikel and the sales of Sylvestre (7m), Van Nistelrooy (15m), possibly Ronaldo (25m) and Fletcher (2m) will make it more than possible for Man U to buy these players and have a nice budget for the January transfer window.

the hoops will not sign kadlec because his agent is looking for to much muney instead they will sign Ian Harte from Levante for free . this will bring much needed experience to the defence for the champs leege nxt season cos he has play there many tymes b4 with Leeds . Celtic will possibly make an atttempt to buy Cannavaro from Juve however his wages cood b a stumbling blok. If Petrov leeves then Graveson will sign for 1 mil . Chance of Giggs coming 2 although that depends on the Ronaldo situation at Man U . Celtic WILL sign JFH for free as he is not signing a new deel at boro and wnts champs leege footbal badly . Camara , Virgo , Beetie all out on loan and Varga will sign 1 yeer extension
MAN UTD TEAM $ NEXT SEASON
NEVILLE FERDINAND VIDIC HEINZE
MAXIRODRIGUEZ HARGREAVES RICARDINHO PARK
Latest on the Rebrov to Hearts deal is that with Skacel now a certainty to go and Webster (unfortunately) heading out the door, Ivanauskas will definately swoop for the former Spurs and Dinamo Kiev striker with formalities being tied up on the contract and also a defender will be coming in with former Arsenal and England under 19 player Justin Hoyte the main target. There's still no clarification on where webster will go - though theres a host of english sides and a german team interested
Former Southampton and Charlton defender Tahar El Khalej could be set for a shock move back to English Football with League 2 newcomers Hereford United also Hereford could be signin Hull goalkeeper Sergio Leite on a season loan also they have made a bid to get Charlton young striker Rurik Gislason on loan! finally they are making a move for former Wycombe, Charlton, West Ham, Derby and Newcastle midfielder Rob Lee!
stop linkin reading with bas savage (donkey) and andy hughes (hard working flop) we will sign mensah for around 3-4m and maybe dean whitehead for about 1-2m. And the person who said we had a bid accepted for the argentinian goalie do you know anything about him i never heard of him.
Man U will buy Mascherano, Riquelme, Miguel and Torres. If Christiano Ronaldo was to leave he will be replaced by Maxi Rodriguez. Man U are also keen on Rennes goalkeeper Issakson along with city rivals Man City and Arsenal.
I think a lot of the rumours concerning the royals are highly unlikely as Hargreaves will NEVER sign for them and I cant really see them spending over £1m on players so anyone over £3-4m is a no no.
Possible signings : Mensah, Davenport, Postiga (unlikely), Inzaghi (again unlikely although his Mrs is from Berkshire and he wants to end his career in EPL + depends on AC Milan) but the one I hope for is Upson as he played for us before and loves the club + facilities. Possible Loans I have heard on the grape vine are SWP, Walcott (Lives in berkshire I know as I know his Dad) or Vela.
Bas Savage & Andy Hughes will not be re-signed for a club who got rid of them because they were not good enough for championship let alone Premiership!
Sidwell to stay one more season.
I am going on hearsay so I doubt this is 100%
jimmy floyd hasselbaink will possibly be a celtic player before the week is over, he is currently locked in talks with gordon strachan, their will be 2 more signings after this possibly michal kadlec and thomas graveson but the later depends on the petrov situation if the hasselbaink deal falls though then expect strachan to try and lure viduka back to celtic park but the hasselbaink deal the most likely, cheers BL
RVN to Bayern, C. Ronaldo to Real, A. Cole to Chelsea. All definate to happen
Even if the clubs involved in the match fixing allegations are cleared, expect a mass exodus from Italian football in general. The uncertainty of how clubs are being run behind the scenes has started to worry a lot of players. Don't have much more than that yet, although have been told of a few. Once I get more information I will post - hopefully with some definate names but if what i've heard is anything to go by look forward to some class players, possibly plying their trade a bit closer to home.
owen hargreaves will NOT move to man UTD, because Carrick is already imminent to move there (17.5m )instead hargreves to join either, Arsenal (unlikely) , Chelsea (highly unlikely) , liverpool (likely) Bolton (not very likely) or another top 6 team
Hulse IS staying at leeds
Owen (who's out for 5 months) will be offloaded next summer
C.Ronaldo to Barca or Real madrid
Beckham not to got the other way
A.Cole STAYING at arsenal
Jamie Hayter to Q.P.R, the reason he wants to play for a bigger club and Bournemouth need the money. Trust me!
When Fabio Capello is installed as Real Madrid manager he will attempt to sign Pavel Nedved and Zlatan Ibrahimovic although the president would prefer Adriano to Ibrahimovic and Kaka to Nedved.
Hristo Stoichkov has recommended Stillian Petrov to Barca. Since the 2clubs hav a good relationship expect a 4.5million deal with celtic taking Barca youth team player Christian Rocco on loan as a temporary replacement.
my cusin players 4 the liverpool youth team nd wen he was at melwood yesterday he is 99.99% positive that he saw shaunwright - phillips.
According to a journalist in Holland, Anderson Silva da Franca, the Brazilian midfielder that Everton "signed" and then loaned to Malaga for the duration of last season, is set to join Dutch side Heracles Almelo on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent move.
team for this season liverpool
finnan carra hyypia riise
joaquin gerrard alonso gonzalez
hyypia will start season so not to break up back line straight away. but he will lose place over season. we need someone with pace. alves is off i reckon. aimar is possibility but we have too many midfielders now, and money could be better spent up front.
Currently talks are going on between sir alex and the Roma manager on transfering totti to manchester United. Recent reports say that fergie is ready to pay as high as 29 million for the Italian star.
100% TRUE. Celtic to sign to Umit Koc (an attacking midfielder) from turkish team BJK!!!!
