Just wanted to help this dude:

"05 Jul 2010 17:20:32
Cole, Young & Milner to Liverpool?

What with? Brass buttons! According to you lot, Gerrard and Torres are both staying. That given, where does the cash come from? Hodgson has at best £15m available. That won't even get you Milner's right foot let alone Ashley Young as well! Joe Cole won't move to LFC he'll be at Spurs next season. The lad doesn't want to relocate and wants CL football hope he enjoys the two games he'll get in the qualifiers!
"
You must've been living in a hermetically sealed, media blackout for the last 18 months, Masch has been angling for a move for a long while! I don't think there are many level headed readers/posters out here that would disagree that he is off. Couple that with the Chairman confirming the new manager will be given the funds from any sales to reinvest in the squad and there you have it (et voila for my french friends). No brass buttons needed (or billionaire/mystery/nonexistent owners)

Andy Johnson is set for a dramatic return to the club
which made him in crystal palace with a 4.5 million bid
lined up. CPFC2010 the new consortium who have
bought the club want the popular player to return to
help get the fans on side of the new takeover. To fund
this Palace will have to sell players with Claude Davis set for a 3 million deal to return him to his former club Preston
and Alassane N'Diaye being linked with a 2.5 million deal
to Stoke City.

 

05 Jul 2010 22:01:46
I have it on great authority that after a torid time at spurs that John Bostock will return to his former club crystal palace. After their former owner Jordan left their is still no one to hold a grudge against him so John will join his boyhood club in a cut price 500k deal. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST. __thenowburyspur___

04 Jul 2010 23:17:12
Everton looking at bringing Landon Donovan back either permanently (7 mill) or on loan. The only other possibilities are Arne Friedrich and Mario Gomez . who would replace Joseph Yobo (Villarreal 3 mill) and Yakubu (West Ham 6 mill). Vaughan and Baxter will also go out on loan. Pienaar and Arteta WILL stay.



sorry to dissapoint you but Arne Friedrich has joined VFL Wolfsburg for 2M and mario Gomez is a striker.

REAL RUMOURS

Mascherano to inter fo 22M + 6.5M in add ons. This money will be used to purchase hoonda who will cost 9M + Riera and 1 of Gilberto silva(unlikely), Barry, Diarra (again unlikely) or Parker (most likely)

The 15M Roy has been given will be spent on a left back Bridge/Taiwo and a Striker (Gyan maybe?)
AND Torres and Gerrard WONT BE LEAVING

 

05 Jul 2010 22:05:25
Roy Hodgson to meet with Joe Cole tomorrow. From what i hear and with Liverpool being the new favorite with the bookies(33's to 4/5), it looks like he'll be unveiled as a Liverpool player as soon as tomorrow night. Hope its untrue as i don't think he's a top player anymore, but it looks very likely.

To this fool:
bullard he is 5050 because of the rep of glasgow

ARE YOU KIDDIN OR WHAT.GLASGOW IS A CRACKN CITY! HAVE YOU EVEN BEEN? WHY WOULD HE BE WORRIED ABOUT IT WHEN HE PLAYED FOR HULL WHICH IS A TOTAL SKIDMARK OF A PLACE. THINK B4 YOU TYPE YA MUG

I live near Glasgow and go out at the weekends there. It's a wonderful vibrant city and all the places that Bullard would go to would be the equivalent of anything London has to offer. Please use your brain before you post as all cities in the UK have good and bad points/areas


Mate, I live in Glasgow, why would it be cause of its 'rep'. Its not as if when you go out you will defo be harmed.far from it.safer then london by miles. Glasgow is great, have you ever been?

Anyone got any true rumours about the most important club in the world plymouth argyle?

 

05 Jul 2010 22:07:33
We all know Gallas and Silvestre are leaving on Free Transfers this summer. This leaves Wenger with only 3CB's, Vermaelen, Campbell and Djourou. Two CB's are expected to join and they are Koscienly £8m and Taylor £5m. If Maicon Follows Mourinho then expect Inter to Bid £16m for Sagna. If this happens Vanderwiel £8m will be signed. Vanderwiel wants to come to Arsenal and has said it in public. "Ive heard alot about Arsenal, Mr Wenger and the Premier League, hopefully Vanpersie can put in a good word for me". Wenger now knows a top team like Arsenal needs a Good GK if there gna win anything, that's why Schwarzer £2.5m or James are wanted. These two are quality keepers and have at least 2 more years left at the highest level so Szczesny can step up and take the No.1 spot. J.Cole is wanted to add experiance to the squad and Diaby and Denilson can be used as DM and cover for Song rather than them playing in attacking roles. Sometimes Arsenal neeed someone who's more direct and can take someone on and change the game if its not going well. Thats why A.Young is wanted by Wenger to take the LW position and compete with Arshavin. With Eduardo leaving and Vanpersie being injury prone, Ashley Young will be a good additoin to the squad.

GK. Schwarzer, Fabianski, Manone.
RB. Vanderwiel, Eboue.
CB. Koscienly, Vermaelen, Taylor, Campbell, Djourou.
LB. Clichy, Gibbs, Traore.
DM. Song, Diaby, Denilson, Eastmond.
CM. Fabregas, J.Cole, Ramsey, Lansbury, Wilshere, Rosicky.
RW. Nasri, Walcott, Bendtner.
LW. A.Young, Arshavin, Vela.
ST. Vanpersie, Chamakh.
Most of the squad can be played in diffrent positions e.g Nasri can play in MF, Vanpersie can play on the Wing.

CELTIC NEWS

Ledley wages to be matched by any offer he gets elsewhere, up to a maximum 30k, celts hoping the lure of medals, european football & 60k crowds should be enough to entice him. One thing i did hear from the discussions yesterday were that he is pushing on a £5m release clause should an EPL team come in for him.

Bellamy: don't know what to make of this any more, Bellamy was reported as saying he didn't want to play in England or Europe, and there were only 2 teams he would join, logical thinking meand Cardiff and Celtic. Man City have offered both celts & cardiff a 60% help with wages, with a view to a permanent move in january should he perform to either teams satisfaction. problem is, celtic can't afford the £7m+ transfer, and cardiff can't afford even 40% of his wages..could be stalemate unless he lowers his demands, or city cut their ties.

Keane: very doubtful, although has spent a few days with Desmond in ireland recently, and most of his furniture is still in the glasgow house he was renting. despite what most people are saying, Harry wants him off the wage bill but can't afford to take much of a hit on his transfer fee, which then creates a problem..who will pay?

Campbell is a cert, and has been assured that BIG names will follow him. wenger will not budge on a 1 year contract, and has averted his attention to a german defender, thought to be Mertesacker. Although a decision won't be made until after his honeymoon, he is apparently already given Lennon his word, which he has been using to entice the likes of Ledley, Bellamy, etc.

McGeady will be sold, with villa looking favourites to sign him, although Villa arent prepared to pay the £11m+ asking price, and trust me, that is the price, they are willing to put up 34m & petrov, who has still failed to settle in the midlands even after all these years.

Have just returned from the Emirates Stadium on council business regarding the Highbury developments and over lunch was talking to a club officialcannot name him.He told me the next ten days will be the busiest at the club in yearsexpect 4 new faces to be unveiled nearly at the same time.The definite is Koscielny which has been completed.Mark Schwarzer has completed terms on a playing contract but is tying up loose ends regarding his other role as a coach.Joe Cole is happening alsoforget Spurs on this one my source saysthe fact Arsenal have said nothing about it is because Arsene Wenger needs to return from S Africa to meet J Cole again(met up once before the world cup) to convince him that he will have a central rolehe will because despite initial positive vibes, Fabgregas is leaving.The club cannot convince him to stay for one more season which is what Arsene pleaded with him to do.Being around the Barca based players has finally convinced Fabregas to leave.Arsenal tried to sign Ozil before the world cup but his price has shot up so he won't be coming, leaving the central role to Cole.Eduardo is also leaving though the source would not say the destinationnot in England though.The Fabregas funds will be used to purchase Gourcuff though don't be surprised if Arsenal go for Steven Ireland at City. Finally Arsene wants another striker in which the source expects to be BalotelliArsene really rates this guy, has had him watched all season and now feels is the time to get him to Arsenal.So to conclude, definite ins are Koscielny, Schwarzer, Joe Cole and very likely Gourcuff.Fabregas is off with Eduardo and this will make funds to get in Balotelli, Ireland and possibly Micah Richards

Not saying i don't think its true but give us some proof. If your working with the council and did attend the Emirates Stadium there is a new thing on the way into the entrance what is it??

 

05 Jul 2010 21:18:06

Just getting up to date with footy news after holiday up here in Scotty land.
Good news for Chelsea fansHibs have released keeper Yves Makalamby after 2 years of calamity keeping for Hibs ( check out youtube! ), but he's not downhearted, 'cos he claims that Chelsea are poised to make him an offer to go back to the Bridge ! Aye, right Yvesstand by yer phone.
Birmingham fans can start counting on goals coming from Gary O'Connor again. He is staying at B'ham on a 2 year deal. I thought he was a stick on for Hibs, but even I get some things wrong.
Not wrong tho' about Goodwillie going to Celtic..he might go, but he's never a £3m player..not even close. He'll have a problem going into the Glasgow gold fish bowl as well. Oh, and I might be the only one in the world who hasn't been touted for a move to Celtic, by the way.

Swindon Town have completed the signing of Julian Gray and it will officially be announced tomorrow.

Just to clarify torres has built a house at the top of woolton hill not in formby and is often seen walking his two dogs around calderstones park with reina, not formby.

fox

Donovan deal will be permanent, the reason Ben Arfa deal has stalled is everton won't pay 10m straight up but want the fee to reach 10m with add ons. No way Jags will be sold. Onouha 6m could spell the end of Yobo (hope not think hes twice the player of onouha, yobo's wages are one of the highest in the club that's the only reason why he'll be sold)

05 Jul 2010 15:44:04
Hwy its me again, the one who said That Kjaer is on hiw way to wolfsburg and look what has happened, the deal will be finalised by the end of the week! Also MUFC are joining the race For Arsenal Target Van Der Wiel And We Will Also Sign Ozil Podolski And Sanchez with the youngens who are already signed!Plus as i said yesterday Shwienstiger is going to madrid or Chelsea! What do yo uthink Ed?

MR.MUFC {editor's note I actually am not convinced Schweinsteiger is going anywhere to be honest.} what about the other ones Ed? {editor's note – I can't see United signing more than 2 players, a striker to replace Berbatov and an attacking midfielder. Though a keeper is also a possibility, if the right one is available.}

Ed, got any inside rumours on Man United's summer transfer targets? One website claimed united were after Mesut Ozil and Manuel Neuer for £32m, do you believe it?

44TH44 {editor's note – I doubt if there is a club in the world that wouldn't be interested in Ozil. With his contract coming to an end I am sure there are no shortage of offers on the table for him to choose from. Neuer has been scouted a number of times, I don't know if the rumours of a bid are true but they would make sense with VDS coming to the end of his career.}

To the guy who wrote:
"Guy Assulin (just released from Barca) is heading to the premierleague.
he is wanted by Chelsea, ManU, Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool.
most likely to go to Arsenal or Chelsea.

SURELY IF BARCA HAVE RELEASED HIM THEN HE IS NOT MUCH COP?"

Well, his contract ended and he wants to play some football, which is hard when you have to compete with Messi, Pedro, Bojan and other great players.
He had a 20M pounds release clause at the age of 17, so he must hold some talent.
btw, you could say the same thing about J dos santos, who was sold cheaply, but we saw him play well at the WC.
Assulin is very talented and has a bright future ahead of him. wish he will choose the right club to prove it.

Brown (4) (Homegrown)
Neville (5) (Homegrown)
Smalling (Homegrown)
Evans (6) (Homegrown)
Rio (7) (Homegrown)
Vidic (8)

Berbatov (23)
Diouf (24)
Welbeck (Homegrown)
Owen (25) (Homegrown)

Not actual Squad numbers, i am showing the 25 man squad as it stands. I will show you the Homegrown players. United have 13 Homegrown players in the 25 man squad. United have a full squad but if a new striker comes in (over 21) Berbatov will have to be sold or Diouf will go out on loan, If another defender or midfielder comes in (over 21) then De Laet will go out on loan or be sold. If a midfielder comes in Carrick or Anderson will have to be sold.

THIS IS WHAT THEY MEAN BY UNITED HAVING TO SELL PLAYERS BEFORE THEY BUY, IT IS NOT DOWN TO NO MONEY, THERE IS JUST NO MORE ROOM FOR ANYMORE PLAYERS IN THE 25 MAN SQUAD.

Welbeck and Cleverley will go out on loan 100%, Diouf, C.Evans, Gill, Cathcart or Possebon could go out on loan. Gray will be sold.

EDITOR HERE'S SOME INFO FOR YOU, IF YOU GET ANY QUESTIONS IN THE FUTURE, THIS MAY CLEAR EM UP!

05 Jul 2010 20:53:28
Sniegjer or whatever is close to go to man u. saf will offer 27m for him and if they have money left they could sign benzema or milner for 30m or 5m plus carrick

 

05 Jul 2010 20:54:51
Bolton have accepted a 15 million plus adds on for gary cahil and danny welbeck or diouf could be included in the deal as man united want another striker and will go for anton ferdinhand.

REALISTICALLY IT WOULD BE AROUND 10M PLUS 5M IN POSSIBLE ADD ONS. ALSO DANNY WELBECK OR DIOUF WOULD BE A LOAN, NOT PERMANENT!

I THINK YOU MEANT UNITED WILL LET DIOUF OR WELBECK GO BECAUSE UNITED WANT TO MAKE ROOM FOR ANOTHER STRIKER?

DID YOU MEAN BOLTON WOULD BUY ANTON FERDINAND AS A REPLACEMENT FOR CAHILL?

thats wat ive heard mate from a good source.

 

05 Jul 2010 20:56:20
 Joe Cole will be sorted by Saturday, with talks with Liverpool and Man City tomorrow, with Tottenham and Arsenal set for talks on Wednesday. Man City will offer him the most money; Liverpool guaranteed 1st team football, with Tottenham and Arsenal offering Champions League footballbut not 1st team football. I fully expect Joe Cole to be presented at Liverpool next week.
 Big happenings at Anfield heading out are Javier Mascherano(Barca35m), Lucas(Inter8m), Albert Riera(Mallorca6m), Martin Skrtel(Juventus12m), Phillip Degen(Basel1m), Diego Cavalieri(Brazil4m). Added to Roy's £10m budget, Hodgson will have around £65m to overhaul the squad.
 Incoming Keiran Westwood2m, Joe Colefree, Milan Jovanovicfree, Gary Cahill12m, Wayne Bridge7m, Anthony Annan5m, Gilberto Silva2.5m, Arda Turan10m, James Milner 23m, Semih Senturkfree
 Chelsea will go all out to bring Kaka to Stamford Bridge willing to offer the 58m Real Madrid paid Milan last season! Sergio Aguero will follow for 32m, with a bid for Marek Hamsik of Napoli of 17m is in the offingdon't know whether will be accepted.
 Man Utd do have money to spend, with their usual £20m and anything made on sales. SAF wants a striker to partner Rooneywith Luis Fabiano, Luis Suarez, Karim Benzema and a return for Diego Forlan all potential signings. Owen Hargreaves will be like a new signing, meaning Michael Carrick will be used as bait in an unsuccessful move for Luka Modric.
 Arsenal are looking to sure up their defence, with Arsene Wenger happy with his attacking options. Laurent Koscielny is more or less signed, a move for Per Mertersacker will soon occur. If in the unlikely event that Barca offer over £50m, Cesc will leave and replaced with Yoann Gourcoff.

Ed, any Tottenham transfer news? All I've got is that Joe Cole is almost done. {editor's note – there seems to be a lot going on at Spurs, Harry wants to trim the squad a bit, I don't have enough knowledge of Spurs squad to know which players or how many will be going though.}

Not a rumour now, but Hibs have signed a big centre back from Norwich David Stephens any Norwich fans out there that can tell me if he's any good ? He's only a young lad, and played a few games at Lincoln City apparently.

Jimbo

In response to this

"Joe Ledley is in a three way tie . he was in stoke on monday, westw brom on wednesday and stoke again on friday to talk with pulis and coates and look around the new training facilities but was it celyic last nite ! He will probably join stoke as he said even before ther didn't get promoted he said : "I will join stoke if cardiff fail in there promotion push" with celtic a near second as he wants to play in the EPl

Fozzy"

if this was the case then why would he even bother coming up to talk to celtic when his "first option" stoke also want him

 

05 Jul 2010 20:41:30
Any news on David Luiz?

 

05 Jul 2010 20:43:08

05 Jul 2010 20:24:40
Ive heard that ancerlotti is after bayern munich and german player muller.

also that joe cole has nearly signed for arsenel.

also man city have made a 25 million bid for arteta.

 

05 Jul 2010 20:25:06
Nile ranger, donaldson, braadan inman wil go out on loan
Jonas Gutierez to lazio for 8m Chris hughton will buy ariel garce 1m
Nedum onouha season long loan
kevin prince boateng 3m
toni kroos on a season long loan
a big name striker on the cheap or a proven goalscorer eg
Bobby zamora the new alan shearer 6m
frazier campbell the new les ferdinand £3.5m
james perch undisclosed fee
ashley seriousley needs to wip out the cash if he wants the toon army to stay up anyone agree?


Why would we want Zamora a left footed target man, when carroll is singing a new deal, Gutierrez has sadi he wants to stay, Campbell can stay on wearyside poo player..

Boateng and Garce would be good signings and so would Onuoha but city won't loan him out.

 

05 Jul 2010 19:55:27
Blackpool are set to offer a life line to england pair emile heskey and michael owen, heskey will join blackpool on a season long loan to try and win back the hearts of england fans as martin o neil has placed him further down the pecking order however it is thought wigan are also intrested in bringing heskey back to the DW, and owen will also join on a 6 month loan deal to try and get some game time and find his previous form, that england seriously lacked in this world cup, and try and play his way into fergusons squad and capellos euro qualifiers

 

05 Jul 2010 19:57:54
Interestingly ARSENAL have 21 players above 21 in their squad, that is you take out Cesc and put in Koscielny and Campbell stays for one more year. Out of the 21 they have SIX homegrown players so this means Ramsey and Walcott will have to be named in the 25 man squad to make up the numbers for homegrown players this means Arsenal have just TWO places up for grabs, meaning they can only bring in TWO more players over the age of 21.

So people need to think about their posts as three or more players over 21 is not Possible for Arsenal unless Campbell is swapped for another homegrown player before he leaves. In other words if Campbell leaves then a max of THREE players can come in over the age of 21 and one of them must be homegrown!

I explained that a well as i could, basically if Cesc leaves and Campbell stays then Arsenal can bring in just TWO players over 21, if Cesc stays and Campbell stays then the most Arsenal can bring in is ONE player plus Koscielny over the age of 21. Hard to understand i know but it is all fact.

LFC
1stly to the person (fool) who posted this :

I told all of you last week that man city reps were in south africa talking to a number 9 i then told you it was torres let me tell you now torres has agreed terms and will become the best payed player in the world deal done !

I better start legal actions for "tapping" up one of our players.

As i said 3 weeks ago, there will be changes some fans will like some they may not.
But let me reassure you all again LFC will be stronger than ever in 12 months time.

Now i know you are talking absolute rubbish. Barclays Capital is not even based at 1 Churchill Place. ..

Sorry mate you do your homework, barclays is at (1 Churchill Place, London) so sorry to you.

Nice try, but you're wrong. As Barclays and BarCap are both clients of mine, I know the difference. 1 Churchill Place is Barclays Bank Head Office. BarCap is at 5 The North Colonnade. .."

All i mainly see on this site is transfer rumours for money bags Man City and Donuts from Liverpool thinkin they got money when there skint. Villa maybe not be the biggest club in the country but they do have a sizeable transfer budget which can only increase with sales of Luke Young, Steve Sidwell to West Ham and Habib Beye to Stoke or Newcastle.

This is only what ive heard from the pubs and getting my haircut so there just rumours Ive heard.

Scott Parker West Ham £10,000,000

Robbie Keane Spurs £8, 500,000

Hugo Rodallega Wigan £12,000,000

Micah Richards Man City £6,000,000

Rob Green West Ham £6,000,000

Steven Taylor Newcastle £6,000,000

Miguel Veloso Sporting Lisbon £12,000,000

Connor Wickham Ipswitch £2,000,000

As I said before all these rumours are just that so don't expect to much, but if they come through expect some players to leave IE some of the fringe players. Also expect James Milner to stay at Villa due to the signings of Yaya Toure and David Silva also having Gareth barry and Steven Ireland on the bench Milner would not get as much first team football as he would at Villa.

Editor what do you think about this, do you think they are likable targets or just plan old speculation also what do you think about Milner. Id also like to here from other fans of clubs to have your input.

To the idiot that said man city have a small stadium, eastlands was open in 2002 and it's the fourth highest capacity stadium in the PL.
Anyways, i've heard that celtic, newcastle and blackpool scouts have been to see bohemians play in the Irish league, they are watching a tall CB who's good in the air. I'd say it's McGuinness. He turned down trials in the uk many times as he thought he'd be homesick, he feels he is at his best now and ready for a move away from ireland.
Hope it goes through,
Zippy.

Arsenal

Not sure where all of the Arsenal stories are coming from, people claiming this source says this and that. I have three people who I have been friends with for numerous years who are great contacts within the club and the only news they are giving me is that apart from the french centre half signing, the club are keeping all of their transfer business very quiet.

One of these friends is normally spot on with any story's, but has heard nothing at all. He along with every Arsenal fan out there expects there to be a few signings after the amount of players who have left, but again dosnt know who the targets are or even their possitions.

Anyone out there claiming they know this or that is either very very well connected or making things up.

Regarding these "done deal" comments regarding LFC and its takeover.

Now, noone in my immediate (or even extended) family plays golf with any exLFC players well, not that they've told me, so I'm in no position to say whether or not "done deal" is indeed the prevailing view of said former stars, but I do know a little bit about takeovers, so here goes.

First, and as painful as it is, cast your minds back to Tom Hicks phone briefing on SSN. In that he said that they'd just finished pitching and that the expected timescale for the deal was end Aug end Dec. Then wind forward to last week and Broughton's comments that they had received no firm offers thus far, that they anticipated receiving such bids by mid July and that he was hopeful the deal would be sorted by late August. By and large, all this tallies, the primary difference being that broughton decided for whatever reason to give a more optimistic view on the timescale. The only thing of real difference was the level of Hicks' involvement in all this Hicks implied he was involved, broughton said he wasn't. Both have their own agendas so believe who you want but as a rule you'd expect the Chairman to be heavily involved in takeover talks (assuming good governance) whilst maajor shareholders often are involved via a representive (unless they fulfill an explict executive role). Anyway, none of this sounds like a done deal and why lie? Enough assumed "done deals" fall through so why set yourself up for a fall?

The reasons for Broughton's more optimistic timescale could be anything eg, LFC has received sufficiently credible statements of intent to bid that they're confident of this timing; or, to sound more attractive to transfer/backroom targets. Etcetera.

If "done deal" is indeed a genuine refelection of sentiment emanating from within the club this could imply that there is either a "favoured party" from whom a bid is expected (or even that only one acceptable bid is expected) and therefore there is a growing assumption that the new owner will be this party and that's that. I would advise caution in that case, at least until a firm bid is made.

Then again, maybe it is all a bluff and a bid has been made/accepted and broughton is simply trying to flush out a competitive bid to strengthen his hand. Not sure, don't think so. Unless there's a concern about the existing bid, this would be a big risk, and broughton would only take it if he had no other option.

Or, more unlikely still, a succesful bid really has been made and the deal is being kept secret for ..er..um..some odd reason particular to either LFC or the acquirer. And the various regulators would be rather interested to say the least. In this peculiar scenario the deal will be announced when its finalised rather than simply agreed.

Me, I think that Broughton's been fairly honest. No bids yet. Bids expected soon. A favoured party is expected to bid and fingers crossed deal done before transfer window ends.

But feel free to disagree.

Guy Assulin (just released from Barca) is heading to the premierleague.
he is wanted by Chelsea, ManU, Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool.
most likely to go to Arsenal or Chelsea.

SURELY IF BARCA HAVE RELEASED HIM THEN HE IS NOT MUCH COP?

1st off his name is gai assulin 2nd barca only released him because look at all the other talent they have waiting to break into the first team .. watch videos of him in the youth team he like a cross between benayoun and messi .. chelsea are favourites to sign him hence the reason we bought benayoun

 

05 Jul 2010 19:53:17
People need to stop talking rubbish about Torres..He don't know what hes doing himself over liverpool so how does anyone else know!?

As for the players thinking of leaving Liverpool then we should ship them all out asap! Players like Mash (although i like him as a player a lot), yossi, riera, babel etc are just simple replaceable leeches! Unlike reina, cara, gerrard, kuyt, etc.

Anyway the only freakish rumour i heard which made me laugh the other day was Gerrard has already sorted a contract with AC Milan!? Personally i think its rubbish but im just passing on what i heard and yes the rumour came from a friend of a friend who knows Gerrad lol.

I just wanted to say about all the rumours linking man utd to benzema/suarez/fabiano or anyone else. I really can't see it because everyone is quoting man utd's formation as 442 but against most teams they play 451 and theyre not going to drop rooney so why would they need another striker? They already have berba, owen, macheda, hernandez and a few other youths. I can see them buying a midfielder but that's about it. what do you think ed? {editor's note I think that Berbatov might well be on his way.}

tbh utd mainly play 442 and in european games they play 451 so there is a possibility of a new striker coming in i mean berba had a poor 2 seasons and could be on his way out and theres talk hernandez is going to be loaned to valencia but i don't see it either way kiko, hernandez and welbeck are all young so wouldn't be in the team EVERY week and if berba was sold that leaves rooney and owen who would make it in the team every week so don't be so hasty in saying there might not be a new striker coming to OT

Some news from the NorthEast

Possible Newcastle ins:

James Perch (done deal)
Patrick Van Aanholt (loan deal)
Peter Whittingham (£3m+)
Adam Matthews (£2.5m+)

Some news regarding Hartlepool United is that they are on the verge of securing significant foreign funding after IOR's 13 year reign. Also, Pools are looking at signing Nile Ranger or Ryan Donaldson of NUFC on a season long loan.

Boro have signed Kris Boyd and are looking likely to sign Andrew Driver of Hearts.

Sunderland are wanting Titus Bramble due to the fact that John Mensah will not be signing due to fitness concerns.

Blyth Spartans are going to sign Neil Harrison, a young tall striker.

I know this isn't realy a great insight into anything in particular but aparently stevie said that a lot of major changes were going to happen at lfc in the next few weeks then he looked at alex and she just smiled at him. my uncle would not lye about this sort of thing as he is a die hard lfc fan and a highly regarded buisness man in ni!

"only repeating what my contact said , defour was looked at more seriously a year ago but apparently has not progressed as hoped, even though my opinion a good player."

Thanks for this. I appreciate that he had a length lay off with injury and that he signed an extention to his contract. So perhaps one for next summer then.

"05 Jul 2010 16:12:23
Hello I havert posted on here for about 2 months. but this will be Newcastles squad for the new season

GK. Harper. Krul.
CB. Taylor, Kadar
CB. Coloccini, Willamson
LB. Enrique, Perch (undisclosed but around £1.5m
RB. Simpson, Onuoha (£4m) Naughton ( 6month loan ) while simpson recovers from injury.

LM. Gutierrez, Routledge
RM. Gosling ( FREE), weiss( loan ) Guthrie
CM. Nolan, Barton, Vuckic
Cm. KP Boateng (£3m), Smith

STR. Carroll, Karrkopp (£2m) ( sorry about spelling young norwiegan striker )
STR. Marcus Pederson (£2m), Lovenkrands

Perch is a done deal. the 2 young strikers (£4m) will arive in the next 3 weeks. KPB (£3m) will sign by next week along with Gosling on a free transfer Onuoha will sign in early august and weiss will come in to cover for gosling as hes out untill Jan. Ryan taylor (£3m) will sign for stoke. Ameobi 2.5m will go to reading. Tozer £2m ( championship club ). Xisco £2m to real santander. Zambler £2.5m to an unnamed italian club. Best will re sign for coventry £1m. Forster will go to burnley on loan and ranger is set to go to Ipswich on loan. Newcastles line up will be

.Haper.
Onuoha.Coloccini.Taylor.Enrique.
Weiss/Gosling.KPB.Nolan(captain).Gutierrez.
Carroll.Pederson.

This is fact. just wait and see it'll happen.

Thanks

The source."

That would be nice, but a few problems:

Firstly, Zamblera shall leave for a NOMINAL FEE (not 2.5million) to an Italian club, although Roma did not take up their option to buy.

Furthermore, Gosling will not be free; although his contract may be up, the development compensation must be paid.

Nedum Onouha shall not come to Newcastle, Man Citeh are demanding at least 5.5 million, this summer prices are extra inflated.

Xisco's wages are too high for Santander (hes on 50k), he will probably go out on loan to them (or someone similar) again, and then again the season after, after which his contract shall be up.

Kevin Prince Boateng is just about Portsmouth's most saleable asset, and shall probably not be sold for less than 5 million, probably to a London club (Hodgson was interested until he moved to Liverpool).

Ameobi won't leave; he doesn't want to and Chris Hughton likes him.

Ranger may be sold because his attitude in training stinks.

Forster may still go to Norwich on loan, as their No. 1 shirt has not yet been taken in their 2010/11 squad numbers.

As for the rest I'm not sure; I honestly wish you were right, though, as that squad would keep us up.

In reference to the chap who said " Manchester City " Representitives were in talks with a certain no 9 whilst in South Africa, I am undecided if Torres would discuss his future, whilst spain are still in the " World cup ". What I do know is talking to someone who work's in scouting, Has told me that Manchester City will stop at nothing to buy the World's best players. I do believe Torres has been offered a phenomenal amount of money by Manchester City, I do believe after the rollercoaster ride that has been Liverpool. That he would consider the chance of joining a team who is on a rapid rise (ableit from funds no prem team can compete with)..Depending on what is actually going on at LFC. I do think there could be a shock on the cards. I do not hate LFC or a rival stoaking the fires. Just how I see it and what I have heard. Similar to Manchester United who are keeping there cards very close to there chest Expect 1 big signing to get the fans on board by the Glazers. Funds are in place regardless of debt, but given Fergies checkered history with big money flops (Veron, Kleberson, Djemba Djemba etc) Again I believe there may be a rabbit in the hat there. Oh and as for Arsenal I think Fabregas will stay at Arsenal for one more year, similar with what Ronaldo did at United. these aren't facts just from what I have read, know, and summerise.

05 Jul 2010 18:26:59
ARSENAL:from what I've been told theres not going to be much going on transfer wise, this is what I've been told is probably/maybe happening:

INS:
Laurent Koscielny (Lorient) 12 million euros
Gregory Van der wiel (Ajax) N/A (only if Bacary Sagna goes to Inter Milan)
Mark Schwarzer (Fulham) 3 million pounds
One of Phil Jagielka (Everton), Gary Cahill (Bolton), Brede Hangeland (Fulham), Steven Taylor (Newcastle) or Joseph Yobo (Everton) N/a (tbh I'm not completely sure about this one as I've had contradicting information, most probably Brede Hangeland or Phil Jagielka)
Yoann gourcuff (Bordeaux) 21 million pounds (probably won't happen if Cesc Fabregas doesn't go to Baca)
Gai Assulin (free agent)
Eden Hazard (Lille) N/A (if not this season, next season or so I've been told)
Nigel de Jong (Man City) N/A (this may or may not happen but as Man City have just bought Yaya Toure De Jong may now be surplus to requirements and from what I've been told Arsene Wenger wants Arsenal to play a 4231 next season with two defensive mids so De Jong would slot alongside Alex Song quite nicely)
Joe Cole (free agent) (again this may or may not happen but it is still a realistic possibility but may end up joining his old buddy Harry Redknapp at Spurs)
Keisuke Honda (CSKA Moscow) will only happen if Eduardo and/or Rosicky leave and even then it still may not happen but Wenger rates him so highly "a genius" and "the best player at the world cup so far". or..
Gervinho (Lille) like above will only happen depending on departures.
or..
Loic Remy (Nice) like above will only happen depending on departures. Most likely out of the three, Honda as he can play many different positions and just the fact Wenger rates him so highly but again i must say that some of these transfers will only happen depending on players leaving.

OUTS:
Sol Campbell (Celtic) (he may end up staying but from what I hear its not a 2 year deal he wants, its a starting place he wants!!)
Bacary Sagna (Inter) (only if he Maicon joins Jose at Madrid which I don't personally understand as they already have Sergio Ramos in that posistion, but next season could see him play at centre back which I understand he doesn't like the idea of)
Mikael Silvestre (released somewhere in the middle east or France)
William Gallas (released Italy or France)
Cesc Fabregas (Barca) no need to explain this one may or may not happen no point saying it will or it won't beacause no1 actually knows.
Denilson (N/A) a surprise to many people I know but my sources seem to think there's a chance he may leave i doubt it myself personally.
Tomas Rosicky (Germany or Italy) and Eduardo (France or another team in England) may both be sold to make space in the squad or/and to reduce wage bill)
Armand Traore (N/A) IMO its a real shame I think hes a beter prospect then Kieran Gibbs but that's just me he will leave either on loan or permanently due to lack of first team opportunities.
Carlos Vela (N/A) I know another surprise I have been told this one is unlikely but may go out on loan.

ED, what do you think of the accuracy of my rumors?

This is theturdz speaking
after some delving around the middle eastern newspapers i came across a small yet significant artilcle buried amongst an interview with an associate of a sheik maktoum who it is thought had to be bailed out by abu dhabi which is total nonsense anyway so after reading the article in question it ended like this ive copied and pasted the last few lines make of it as you want,

"Surely in the current climate, and with time running out on the Americans who must repay or refinance their loan in July, nobody is going to buy Liverpool at this present time.

"The price drops with every passing day, and any prospective buyer would now wait until the summer before making a move. By then, the Americans would have to accept a much lower price around £400m or lower."

remember the name remember theturdz


theturdz.

Man United linked with Van Der Wiel? As a Utd fan this is annoying as he has been linked with Arsenal in England and other big clubs in Europe not United up until now. Besides MUFC do not need him, have we forgotten about a certain John O'Shea? Gary Neville can fill in and Rafael is a great prospect. Wes Brown is there too and providing he stays fit is a wonderful backup (right back all season the year we won Champions League and Premiership).

A versatile attacking midfielder is the only almost definite. Take your pick of complete random or best priced young creative player to be groomed next season, my bet the obvious Sotiris Ninis (cheap and versatile). Any other signings will be completely out of the blue a la Hernandez and Smalling. Unless this Gary Cahill rumour has any basis.

Thanks for listening.

Iv got a few contacts or people i know who are acedemy scouts or involved in football in midlands and iv herd a couple of times that england is no longer a massive attraction for footballers from the rest of the world. Players who are allready here and settled obviously would rather stay or go back to somewhere they have been. But others would rather go to spain italy or even germany.
This has been seen at birmingham wolves west brom and villa who i have on good aurthority have bid successfully for players but they just don't fancy the epl. Pav would rather go to germany or russia than stay miccolli would rather stay in italy ndaw would rather stay in france or move to spain.
This is driving teams like man city to offer 150k a week for yaya n it turn down and 170 185 200 210 and then yaya has to agree at 220k a week. He doesn't even want to be here and will be another robinho. Likes d money but doesn't want to be here. West brom can't attract the drabs from east europe because they want to go to italy villa want a couple of 5 6 mill players from africa and south america but spain n germany is more appealing. Wolfsburg are more appealing than spurs it shudnt be but no1 wants to come here because of tax and the phisicality. English clubs will buy from english clubs or pay over the top. What u think ed n what u heard about this? {editor's note – the English league has been overspending for years, now they are having to rein in spending to meet the new UEFA rules, it will make it difficult to match the wages on offer abroad.}

Leicester City will announce Paulo Sousa as their new manager later this week, as talks are now only about personal terms as he has agreed a twoyear deal. Paulo Sousa has already stated that he still wants to keep managing some of the Swansea players and as soon as he is in charge he will sign Darren Prately and Mark Gower from Swansea as well as Hugo Colace because Hugo wanted to play under Sousa and that is why talks have slowed down between Swansea and Colace. Its looking better than first thought now for the foxes. Expect players to be coming in to the Walkers, the only player leaving will be DJ Campbell to any of 2 teams which I can not tell the names of.

Editor, do you have any news on Benficas David Luiz and Mesut Ozil? Also anything on Arsenal ? {editor's note – Luiz is attracting interest from numerous clubs, I really wouldn't be surprised to see him end up at Arsenal though. Ozil, I just really haven't a clue what he is going to do, but I doubt anyone does while the World Cup is on. As for Arsenal, I don't have anything new.}

Tottenham have bid 10 million for Connor Wickham today, which should tempt Ipswich to accepting.

Blackburn are close to agreeing a 3 deal for Tommy Smith for a fee in the region of 2 million.

In's at Ipswich Steve Tilson will arrive as number two before towns visit to roots hall on Friday.

I understand new zealand full back kyle reid is coming over for trial this week. Town our also keeping an eye on Lee Peltier at Huddersfield for 1 million, but a move for Lee Novak seems to have collasped after he agreed a new deal.

To all the those people that fell for another fake story about " torres agent saying that he's leaving" , yet again you, ve got it all wrong , go on skysports.com "Torres Exit Talked Denied" his agent has come out and denied rumours about him saying that. so stop making up your bull crap about hes already signed for dirty chelsea or money grabbing city. Hes A scouser through and through!

To sharkey

only repeating what my contact said , defour was looked at more seriously a year ago but apparently has not progressed as hoped, even though my opinion a good player.

can not wait for the next two weeks when man utd reveal all their signings in one go , will stop all the rubbish about no money.


ed meant to say bout ninis , possible aswell even if other two fail asi think that is a done deal.

ARE YOU KIDDIN OR WHAT.GLASGOW IS A CRACKN CITY! HAVE YOU EVEN BEEN? WHY WOULD HE BE WORRIED ABOUT IT WHEN HE PLAYED FOR HULL WHICH IS A TOTAL SKIDMARK OF A PLACE. THINK B4 YOU TYPE YA MUG

I live near Glasgow and go out at the weekends there. It's a wonderful vibrant city and all the places that Bullard would go to would be the equivalent of anything London has to offer. Please use your brain before you post as all cities in the UK have good and bad points/areas

Hey Ed, any proper Blackpool news? Also, any truth in Bentley? Sounds a bit farfetched as his wages would surely be far too high. {editor's note – I haven't heard anything concrete on Blackpool at all, though I doubt the Bentley rumour. More because of his vision of his own self importance and greatness as a player.}

I don't rate him in the slightest, even less so now he is so hampered by injuries that he runs like he is in knee deep sand.}

Seen on other sites but not mentioned on here is a possible swap deal involving Gael Clichy and Felipe Melo personally i like the idea. Gives wenger that defensive midfield cover alongside Alex and gets Gael Clichy out of Arsenal where he seems unhappy and below his best plus with Kieron Gibbs emergence don't need to sign a replacement. Other news mainbly being about Tomas Rosicky, Eduardo and Nicholas Bendtner. All three i feel have had there time and chances at Arsenal so losing them won't be at detrementral, plus have replacements for them all so. I personally believe the rumours about Joe Cole going abroad if he was signing for English team deal would be done by now. Plus isn't required with Wellingtons arrival in new year. Defence well that's a difficult one i think Wenger knows who he wants in Kosceinly and jagielka but knows he won't get the latter cheap so. Mertsacker isn't that impressive i personally feel the rumours about Marquez are closer hes older and more of a leader, Arsenal have youngsters coming through. If campbell can be persuaded to have a bit part role this year playing wise and do some coaching of youngsters feel wenger would like that. Wenger also as we are all aware is very much an economist and with new regulations coming in about CL i don't feel he is about to rush out and spend a fortune in fact can see a few more big names going in 12 months time. Goalkeepers this is a mine field for the Gunners with everyone convinced about it being Schwarzer but i think Shay Given is an outside bet and a far keeper. Man city linked with Casillias and also having Joe Hart back may go for this. He would cost more but that would be paid for the sales of Almunia and Fabianski, Mannone and Scerzerny as back up and coached by given.


Well just my ramblings i know but feel the horizon is changing in the premier league, clubs are taking stock not rushing into rash and over the top deals. one with CL expectations have guidelines to meet so. Just maybe Permier leagues time is up and the cycle of top league moves on. Happened when Italian league calmed and now Spain is suffering. only Russians and Man city paying daft wages so.

To the one who said this "
Just to clear a few things up:
1.Manchester United are easily paying off their debt per
year, although it isn't going down, the interest fees are easily being paid.

2.A bid matched Barcelona's for David Villa, this stops people saying that we don't have money.

3.Nemanja Vidic on form is the 1st or 2nd top centre back in the world and will not be sold for anywhere near £10 or £15m. Expect £25m at least

4. SAF is looking to sign 2 or 3 more players. Vermijl, Hernandez and Smalling are already here.

5.SAF went to watch Ozil last season, and after the world cup is finished a bid of £20m will be lodged.

6.When Berbatov is sold as well as Anderson and Carrick a bid of £25m for Benzema will be made.

7.Also expect a bid for Pablo Barrera of UNAM Pumas.

Ozil#8
Benzema#9
?Barrera#12
Hernandez#14
Vermijl#34
Smalling#33"

It was going all too well until you spoilt it with that 6th point. It is ridiculous to think that SAF will sell berbatov, carrick and anderson to just buy benzema. I know berbatov has had a decent(not good) season and the other two have had disastrous seasons but that has all been down to confidence loss. There is just no sense in thinking that SAF will sell one of his most experienced players in carrick and a good young midfielder in anderson in the same season. Berbatov will not be sold unless somebody offers 20mil+. The only way we will get benzema is if jose thinks he is too much of a distraction in the dressing room or demands a first team place etc. Also i expect one of ando or carrick to be sold but not both. I think it will be anderson who will be at the wrong end of the stick and will be replaced by ozil.

Just a quick question to the {editor}
Do you reckon that fat dkhead who runs koptalk even knows anyone from inside the club..
i mean ive (i don't like admitting it) had a look around koptalk a few times before and it seems to me that he posts absolute garbage..what you think? {editor's note – I have watched his site over the course of years now, ever since I started this one, and I have never read anything that shows a single sign of any inside knowledge at all. He just talks utter crap and it is not a site I would give the slightest bit of credence to.}

Torres is staying, scources from inside LFC have informed me + his house is still being built in Formby(street that gerrard lives in). New owners should be announce 1725th july. Ashley young and milner will be bought £35million + babel and/or riera. Gary cahill will be bought for £11million and finally roy will make bids for agero and ballotelli but will only sign one . Also why is everyone saying liverpool are signing joe cole ..he's tottenhams new no.10

"Giving robinho's example was a good strategy to prove me wrong, but those were days with no UEFA rules! Chelsea could post millions worth of losses and still not be accountable to anyone and play in the Champions League. But now it is different, chelsea need to meet the guidelines or they are in deep trouble. Even with both coles, ballack, deco, carvalho, kalou(the last 2 i don't think will leave) leaving chelsea will still post a loss on its dealings and it will still be big."

why is champions league regarded as the drem tournament of europe, is it because of the size of trophy, absolutely not its only because all the big teams in europe compete in it.will champions league be the same with no chelsea, ac&inter milans, manchester united, arsenal, b.munich etc.again answer is no.so do you think they can afford loosing these teams when new rule comes into existence, ending up loosing all the lustre of the competition.i'll leave it to you to answer.the fact is the rule hasn't came into existence, its never stated clearly by the uefa, not even to the clubs, so there will be loop holes in the law which will be delibrerately put forward by the uefa themselves, which the highly talented financial experts of the above clubs are going to exploit successfully..so you don't just finalise it is going to be a quiet summer in top 4 transfer window, you'll surely see top signings by the top 4.

err correct me if i am wrong ed??ed, whats your views on the uefa rules, are they gonna eliminate, these top clubs from competition since all of them are incurring losses right now?? {editor's note – I think they will have left loopholes and the big clubs will exploit them.}

Editor'what do you think of these deals? and also are you having any Manchester United transfer news editor? {editor's note – if the stories about Cahill are true, then it is either Vidic going or Rio's injuries, in my opinion. If it is Vidic going then I would be certain that Fergie will at the very least try for Benzema.}

Just wondering if anyone knew any concrete evidence involving the Igor Akinfeev move to Utd in Jan? its been going round for a while, and to be fair, maybe this is why Fergie has kept quiet on the GK department, as well as selling Foster. Im guessing the move would be in Jan, cuz of the russian league format. But yer any help would be sweeeeeeeeet! Ed, any ideas?

PartWolf {editor's note – I thought Akinfeev had signed a new contract because he had decided to stay. I am not 100% sure now, I do think he would be a fantastic signing though.}

Hammers to make the following moves in the next monthall serious rumours cooberated by various sources inside and outside the club.


1) Cole will be sold if buyer agrees £10 million up front, with 3 million in add ons (ie appearances/goals/caps)

Should they sell Cole, then Piquionne has been lined up as a short term replacement, around the £1.5 million mark.

2) Neymar is a definate goer, although G and S are struggling to broker the deal to ensure the profit from his future sale stay with the Hammers and not a third party agent. The Chelsea link with this deal is a red herin, as Man City are being lined up a parent club for us.

3) The French lad Remy doesn't want to come, he wants to wait for Arsenal in a couple of years. He will remain in France till then.

4) It's hoped Upson and Green will sign new contracts, although if offers in excess of £6 million are received for either then these will be considered providing replacements can be found first.
The replacement CH will be Wheater and GK will be James.

5) Other live targets include Joe Cole, Henry, Pennent, Scott Loach, Barrera (mexican winger) and the two they are desperate to keep quiet, and closest to finalising, is none other than.
Chris Samba for £7 million and
Roman Pavluchenko for an inital £9 million fee, raising to £11.5 depending on goals/europe quals.

These are all genuine leads, which should ensure the hammers have a somewhat better season than last time.

IM A HAMMERS FAN AND ITS NICE TO SEE SOMEBODY FINALLY TALKING SENSE!!

I agree with the Green and Upson, but I think West Ham will be looking to keep Green more than Upson. Voles want to work with Green and improve him (as he did with teh likes of Niemi). Upson will be allowed to go as he had a decent world cup and wouldn't let him go for less than £10million in my opinion.

You have forgotten about the deal they will be getting for Pennant (£2million pounds). I think this is also a close deal as he is cheap and a good buy for that price!!

Ed you got any transfer news on arsenal. {editor's note nothing new right now, just waiting on Koscielny to complete and then a formal bid for an Everton defender. I say Everton defender because I have two conflicting bits of info from there right now, one says it is Jagielka Arsenal want, but the other believes it to be Yobo. Jagielka is the better player in my opinion.

It is Jagielka the reason being that he can cover two positions CB and CDM. Wenger needs cover for Song/Diaby and sees Jags as the man to do the job. The problem is the valuation Everton have so far rejected one offer and Arsenal have yet to make an improved bid. Whilst Jagielka was first option, Wenger has Ajax's Jan Vertonghen earmarked. He is younger (23), has more pace and would certainly increase the average height being 6'2 to Jagielka's 5'11! He is also a close friend of Thomas Vermaelen. Koscielny should be confirmed this week Schwarzer deal is currently on hold until the new Fulham manager has been announced.

PS) Why are Arsenal fans on here still going on about Joe Cole? He isn't even being considered as an option. He's never fulfilled his potential for starters, blows hot and cold and spends way too much time on the treatment table. Why would we need Cole when we already have a similar player in Tomas Rosicky? Forget it! {editor's note – Yobo has played as a right back and central midfielder on numerous occasions.}

Really? Joe Ledley was in Glasgow last night. maybe not so definite!

Dunfybhoy!







Joe Ledley is in a three way tie . he was in stoke on monday, westw brom on wednesday and stoke again on friday to talk with pulis and coates and look around the new training facilities but was it celyic last nite ! He will probably join stoke as he said even before ther didn't get promoted he said : "I will join stoke if cardiff fail in there promotion push" with celtic a near second as he wants to play in the EPl

Cole, Young & Milner to Liverpool?

What with? Brass buttons! According to you lot, Gerrard and Torres are both staying. That given, where does the cash come from? Hodgson has at best £15m available. That won't even get you Milner's right foot let alone Ashley Young as well! Joe Cole won't move to LFC he'll be at Spurs next season. The lad doesn't want to relocate and wants CL football hope he enjoys the two games he'll get in the qualifiers!

A Newcastle supporter suggested at 05 Jul 2010 16:28:23:

"toni kroos on a season long loan"

Sadly Kroos will not be available for a loan as he has returned to Bayern after a loan spell bityh Bayer Leverkusen, who wanted to keep him longer. He came in to this world cup as a better prospect than Ozil and certainly will be one to watch in the future.

why would he go man city when they have Given and Hart already
there would only be 4 teams he would go to if he left Madrid now
Arsenal, Man.United, Bayern.Munich, A.C Milan.

Chelsea Liverpool Juventus Inter already have top class keepers so they wouldn't buy him

Mourinho has already signed angel di maria £30m
Which means shay given will be only second choice at man city and his such a class keeper he may leave this summer or joe hart may leave depending on mancini
Alex McLeish of birmingham is interested in Rafael Van Der Vaart For £15m along with steven piennar £8m, Micah Richards £7m, Graeme Dorrans £6m, Jack Wilshere On loan and all ready signed players Ben Foster And Nikola Zigic.

DI MARIA SIGNED FOR EXACTLY 25 MILLION EUROS! (£20.7m) WHY DO PEOPLE THINK KAKA WILL BE SOLD? HE IS PROBABLY THE BEST CENTRAL MIDFIELDER IN THE WORLD AND MOURINHO WILL GET THE BEST OUT OF HIM. KAKA WILL STAY AT REAL MADRID 100%. REAL MADRID HAVE ALREADY SAID WHO ARE SURPLUS TO REQUIREMENTS DRENTHE, VDV, GAGO AND BENZEMA (ALTHOUGH THIS GUY WONT BE PUBLICLY PUT ON THE UNWANTED LIST AS THEY KNOW UNITED ARE VERY KEEN ON HIM AND WILL WANT TOP DOLLAR FOR HIM)!

Hi heard from a very reliable source the ashley young has agreed to move to arsenal for 18 mil and i am a liverpool fan and also some one has bidded for james milner 28 mil
THIS IS FACT !


Whos your source Billy the Bull Shtter the only "FACT" in this statement is that the fact that this is a load of rubbish. Milner is hot property and is not in the country as he is taking a holiday from the world cup and the only club likable to sign the midfielder now is Chelsea but they are in pursuit of Bastian Schweinsteiger. Also O'Neill has said he will accept no less than £32 Mil which has been reported in many national news papers and also SSN, O'Neill will stick to his guns which has been proven with the Gareth Barry saga 2 seasons ago.

As for Ashley Young, he is happy at Villa he starts week in week out and Wenger does not need another winger as he as Arshavin and Walcott and buying Ashley would only be a confidence destroyer for the youth players that wenger has to his disposal in the way buyin him means they are not good enough. Another big thing is the price Villa signed him at 11 Mil from watford O'Neill values him at £25 Mil and it wil take atleast that to get his signature.

Thanks for reading this and hope its cleared the situation up abit. Editor what is your view on this and I would like to here from anybody who wants there say.

PsX Con {editor's note – I am wondering if these stories have come about because O'Neill is looking to move on Young myself. Only the stories do seem to be coming from Villa.}

Ed, any news on lfc. What do you thinks gonna happen this summer? I believe that all the stuff on aguero coming to anfield is bull? what do you think?
cheers LFCboy {editor's note – I don't believe the Aguero rumour myself, I know he is a Liverpool fan but I think he will have some Champions League teams to choose from. Gerrard and Torres look likely to stay, they are going to give Roy a chance.}

He may have been at WBA through the week but he was in Glasgow last night. It would appear that Ledley has yet to make his decision! So I wouldn't bet on him going to WBA just yet.

Celtic
George boateng is in glasgow for talks probably will be offered a 2 year deal.

There is also 5 trialists ibrahima camara of le mans that plays full back or midfield and stepjanov of vojvodina are the only two that have been confirmed by their clubs.

The mexican winger barreras agent also was talking to celtic, however the fee of £35m might be a problem unless mcgeady is sold, which is being considered if an offer of £7m plus is received and he wants to go. Also if his agent is willing to make a 12,000 miles round journey it gives the impression the player is interested.

Joe ledley is also in discussions with celtic and will probably be offered around 20k a week, much the same as stoke will offer. Therefore I think he will sign for a chance in european football. But theres also the danger hes trying to start a bidding war.

Bullard will have more talks but i doubt they will sign him if they can lure ledley as they would have 3 attack minded midfielders (brown), ( ledley and bullard if they sign)

So I sat down last night and thought about the realistic transfers of LFC that's doing the rounds and this is what I came up with.
ins Outs
Jovanovic Free Riera 6m
J Cole Free Ben A Youn 5.5m
G. Silva 2.5m Lucas 9m
Drenthe 6m Cavalieri 3m
Wilson 4m El Zahr 3m
Young 20m Degen 2m
Aguero 30m Ngog 6m
A goalkeeper about 6m Masch 30m
Total: 68.5m Total:64.5m+the supposed 15m
Total:79.5m
These figures are obviously aprox & what is doing the rounds in the media, so if most of these came off the squad would look something like this;

TORRES AGUERO
BABEL J. COLE

JOVANOVIC G. SILVA GERRARD KUYT
A YOUNG SHELVEY AQUALANI MAXI

DRENTHE AGGER CARRAGHER JOHNSON
INSUA SKRTEL WILSON KELLY

REINER
GOALKEEPER?

Plus say three from the youth, take your pick. But my point is with a squad like this, I think it would not only challenge for the top four but maybe the title, on paper I think it is the equal of any in the prem? Plus it would also leave around 10m for Jan. More importantly it is a healthy mix of youth those that are in there prime and some that have bags of experience. I don't know, I for one would be more than happy if this was our squad for next year. It's not all doom and gloom.. Tobey

Fact 1. As stated respectively by its chairman and manager LFC does not need to and does not want to sell Gerrard and Torres. Those dumb ass lazy journalists should ask themselves this question. What seller of a company in the process of being sold sells the company's prized assets whilst in the middle of the sales process? This would quite simply fcuk up the sales process. These rumours are clearly a load of ball ox designed to sell papers. (For those still in doubt SSN has reported that Torres's agent was misquoted).
Fact 2. Rafa having left does not increase the likelihood of Torres and Gerrard going. On the contrary, both Gerrard and Torres's relationship with Rafa over the last 12 months was not a happy one. They both approve of Woy as his replacement.
Fact 3. No sale has taken place yet. The first round of bids are expected in mid July just as the chairman publically advised. Bliar Payne and one or two other conspiracy theorists seem to believe that the chairman msay have lied through his teeth at the press conference so as to hide a sale which has allegedly already completed or been agreed. This is complete ball ox. It would be professional suicide for the chairman to lie in this manner.
Fact 4. Blair Payne by his own admission is very very confused.

I have been told that Garry Cook CEO of Manchester City had a meeting with Fernando Torres agent Jos Antonio Martn in Valencia 3 Weeks ago at the 5 Star Hotel Las Arenas. From what i can gather the deal would be more than the Cristiano Ronaldo transfer fee, Likely blow the Yaya Tour wages out of the water. (If He Accepts It)
Adios
Why do people keep posting this nonsense about Torres? If he did go, which I doubt (I think he will give it at least 1 more season), it would be to Barcelona not Man City.
Man City are going to be in big trouble when the have to live within there means and not the owners' money. They have a small ground and a lot of overpaid player which means they will make a loss. That is why most of the top teams are now being sensible.

I just wanted to say about all the rumours linking man utd to benzema/suarez/fabiano or anyone else. I really can't see it because everyone is quoting man utd's formation as 442 but against most teams they play 451 and theyre not going to drop rooney so why would they need another striker? They already have berba, owen, macheda, hernandez and a few other youths. I can see them buying a midfielder but that's about it. what do you think ed? {editor's note – I think that Berbatov might well be on his way.}

Nicky Butt is more likely now to join Ipswich, although this has not been confirmed.

Have just returned from the Emirates Stadium on council business regarding the Highbury developments and over lunch was talking to a club officialcannot name him.He told me the next ten days will be the busiest at the club in yearsexpect 4 new faces to be unveiled nearly at the same time.The definite is Koscielny which has been completed.Mark Schwarzer has completed terms on a playing contract but is tying up loose ends regarding his other role as a coach.Joe Cole is happening alsoforget Spurs on this one my source saysthe fact Arsenal have said nothing about it is because Arsene Wenger needs to return from S Africa to meet J Cole again(met up once before the world cup) to convince him that he will have a central rolehe will because despite initial positive vibes, Fabgregas is leaving.The club cannot convince him to stay for one more season which is what Arsene pleaded with him to do.Being around the Barca based players has finally convinced Fabregas to leave.Arsenal tried to sign Ozil before the world cup but his price has shot up so he won't be coming, leaving the central role to Cole.Eduardo is also leaving though the source would not say the destinationnot in England though.The Fabregas funds will be used to purchase Gourcuff though don't be surprised if Arsenal go for Steven Ireland at City. Finally Arsene wants another striker in which the source expects to be BalotelliArsene really rates this guy, has had him watched all season and now feels is the time to get him to Arsenal.So to conclude, definite ins are Koscielny, Schwarzer, Joe Cole and very likely Gourcuff.Fabregas is off with Eduardo and this will make funds to get in Balotelli, Ireland and possibly Micah Richards.

Northampton Town/ Leeds Utd News

Bit of a shock this one and I expect people will be sceptical, but according to a NTFC employee I know who has been 100% spot on in the past, Leeds have agreed personal terms with Adebayo Akinfenwa on a free transfer.

Apparently Akinfenwa was reluctant to accept a deal where he wasn't guaranteed first team football, but he has had assurances that Leeds will not be signing any more forwards.

Apparently the deal is for 2 years.

 Torres is staying at Liverpool, for this season. Guillem Balague is said to have spoken to Torres' agent who can't speak English, no comments have been made. Torres and Gerrard are staying at Liverpool this season and if no Champions League football they're off!
 Javier Mascherano (£32Barca), Albert Riera (£6mValencia or Mallorca), Martin Skrtel (£12mJuve or Lyon), Lucas (£8mInter) and Phillip Degen (£1.5mSchalke) are all leaving.
 In addition to Liverpool's £10m budget Roy Hodgson will have around £5060m to spend. Roy is looking to hijack Simon Kjaer's £10m move to Wolfsburg, if unsuccessful expect moves for Gary Cahill, Ryan Shawcross or Steven Taylor to replace Skrtel.
 At leftback, expect a move for Wayne Bridge (£6m) who will slide down the pecking order at Man City, with Jerome Boateng signed and Aleksander Kolarov on his way.
 To replace Mascherano and Lucas Hodgson said to be interested in Gilberto Silva (2.5m), Anthony Annan (£6m) and Scott Parker (£10m).
 Expect big moves in attacking areas, with Jovanovic signed Arda Turan will arrive in a deal worth £10.7m if Joe Cole cannot be persuaded to join, Keisuke Honda is wanted with a £12m in the offing. One of Ashley Young or James Milner to be signed.

Also a rumour about the takeover (that I do not believe). My dad's business partner golfs with Rushie (cliche but true) and Rush seems to be of the opinion that its already a done deal, despire what Broughton has said..

CHRIS! {editor's note – I will see what I can find out, I have a friend who knows Dunne well from his time at Everton, I will see if he knows anything. Trouble is the players are often the last to know, but it is worth a try.}

"Why buy a 14m Dutch right back , when you can buy and have Micah Richards, an Englishman at half the price? Come on Gill, you can give Ferguson some money just remember your TV statement MUFC has money the boss has only to ask."

probably because Van Der Wiel is class. Richards hasn't improved since he made his debut. If anything, he's gone backwards.

This is theturdz speaking
after some delving around the middle eastern newspapers i came across a small yet significant artilcle buried amongst an interview with an associate of a sheik maktoum who it is thought had to be bailed out by abu dhabi which is total nonsense anyway so after reading the article in question it ended like this ive copied and pasted the last few lines make of it as you want,

"Surely in the current climate, and with time running out on the Americans who must repay or refinance their loan in July, nobody is going to buy Liverpool at this present time.

"The price drops with every passing day, and any prospective buyer would now wait until the summer before making a move. By then, the Americans would have to accept a much lower price around £400m or lower."

LFC Let's just be sensible for a moment shall we..

GK
Reina is now probably the best keeper in the EPL. Cavalieri is a god, solid second choice and the club have 3 superb prospects in Bouzanis / Hansen & Gulcasi.
SO UNLESS REINA OR CAVALIER ASKS FOR A TRANSFER, DON'T EXPECT ANY NEW FACES.

RB
Johnson obviously will be 1st choice but with 2 good prospects in Darby & Kelly plus Carragher if necessary.
AGAIN, NO NEW FACES.

CB
Carragher, Agger, Skrtel, Kyrgiakos all represented their national teams at the WC so why change any of them? The young spaniard Ayala (who is highly rated) is going on a season long loan back to Spain such is the confidence in the players they have got.
AGAIN, NO NEW FACES.

LB
Insua will no doubt be a very good player one day but he is still only 21. The young french left back Mavinga is also highly thought of at Anfield but at 19 is also too young for a full ELP season.
THEREFORE, A NEW LEFT BACK IS DEFINATELY REQUIRED I WOULD IMAGINE, GIVEN ROY'S QUOTE ABOUT BRITISH PLAYERS THAT WAYNE BRIDGE IS A SAFE BET (UNLESS HE BRINGS BACK WARNOCK?).

RM
Maxi has shown at the WC that he still has class and brains if not pace anymore. Kuyt never was a right winger and El Zhar will never make the grade. Gerrard can play there obviously but that's a waste (not as much as playing him on the left Fabio but never mind!).
THEREFORE, A NEW PLAYER IN THIS POSITION AND ONCE AGAIN WITH THE WHOLE 'BRITISH' THING GOING ON, WHAT DO WE RECKON..JOE COLE / DAVID BENTLEY OR JAMES MILNER?

CM
Gerrard (who isn't leaving thank you very much British tabloid reporters) / Aquilani / Lucas / Spearing and the new boy Shelvey.
WOULD IMAGINE A DEFENSIVE MINDED PLAYMAKER WOULD BE A WORTHWHILE BUY. ONLY SCOTT PARKER SPRINGS TO MIND BUT DON'T RULE OUT THE 'ANCIENT' DANNY MURPHY COMING HOME.

LM
Roy has said he will give Albert Riera a chance. If the players don't have a problem with that (who knows how much about the socalled 'punch' were true) and lets face it Rafa's selection policy at times upset even his hardest supporters. Babel is not a left winger and has stated so many, many times (Rafa again I'm afraid).
IF RIERA STAYS AND WITH JOVANOVIC (APPARENTLY) ARRIVING NOONE ELSE WILL COME IN. LIKELY. MATTHEW TAYLOR AS A SUGGESTION? IF RIERA GOES MATTHEW TAYLOR, ASHLEY YOUNG OR AIDEN MCGREADY MAY BE TARGETED? ALSO JOE LEDLEY COULD BE A GOOD OPTION AS ONLY A COMPENSATION FEE WILL BE REQUIRED TO CARDIFF.

ST
Torres (yes that's right Man City & Chelsea fans), Kuyt (who is a striker, just watch the WC) and Babel will be the main choices with again good young options in Eccleston, Pachero and Dalle Valle.
UNLESS SOMEONE 'SUPERB' BECOMES AVALIABLE AND SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT WANT THE 'GLAMOUR' OF THE CL I DON'T SEE ANYONE ARRIVING. IF HOWEVER, KUYT OR BABEL DO GO, EXPECT THE ARRIVAL OF CARLTON COLE.

FOR THE ATTENTION OF THE EDITOR:
Ed, I hope this isn't a too long post for you to publish but I hope it appeals to your sense or realisim and feel free to add anything you know that I don't (which is probably a great deal!).
neilr007 {editor's note – just one definite point, I am pretty sure Cavalieri wants to leave.}

Hello Ladies and Gents.
Dzeko to City is imminent. All you Manchester City fans out there breath easy because you finally got your man.

Dzeko is about to hand in a transfer request and he is pleading to the Wolfsburg staff to let him join Eastlands.

The deal will not be the 50 million asked by Wolfsburg, however Mancini has agreed a fee with the German club in the region of 40 million. The deal will be announced in the coming days.

This will take Mancini's spending to 100 million pounds!

ABSOLUTE BULLCRAP, LISTEN CITY UP TO ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO HAD AN OPTION TO BUY DZEKO FOR 34M EUROS, (HIS BUY OUT CLAUSE) BUT NEVER MADE AN OFFER, 34M EUROS IS AROUND 28M STERLING, SO IF THEY WANTED HIM, THEY WOULD HAVE BOUGHT HIM THEN. PLEASE PLEASE STOP TALKING SH!TE.

BESIDES DZEKO HAS DONE NOTHING TO WARRANT A 40M TRANSFER FEE, HE IS AN AVERAGE STRIKER AT BEST. HE HAD A 34M EURO BUY OUT CLAUSE FOR YEARS UNDER HIS CONTRACT AGREEMENTS AND NO ONE HAS MADE A BID FOR HIM, HE IS WORTH 20M TOPS, ED WHERE HAS THIS PLAYERS REPUTATION COME FROM AND RIBERY'S REPUTATION FOR THAT MATTER, HOW HAVE THEY WARRANTED A LARGE FEE FOR DOING JACK SH!T?

 

05 Jul 2010 14:53:33
Hodgson is not Jewish but that's besides the point.
Some posts on here would have you thinking all Arabs are Jew haters that is simply not the case!
Get alife anyone who can afford to take over LFC is hardly going to be a simple bigot. The Ed is 100% right Arab and progressive Isrealis are anti the Isreali state not Jews so stop the racism you fools. Yossi left cause he aint good enuff and the REDS are rebuilding.

Northampton Town/ Leeds Utd News

Bit of a shock this one and I expect people will be sceptical, but according to a NTFC employee I know who has been 100% spot on in the past, Leeds have agreed personal terms with Adebayo Akinfenwa on a free transfer.

Apparently Akinfenwa was reluctant to accept a deal where he wasn't guaranteed first team football, but he has had assurances that Leeds will not be signing any more forwards.

Apparently the deal is for 2 years.

Unsigned suggested some Manchester United targets at 05 Jul 2010 14:13:08:

I understand that nothing has changed in that Karim Benzema and Steven Defour remain the likely targets. I am surprised that there has been no fuss over Defour at all this summer.

Whilst Ozil may only have a year left on his contract, and regardless of his desire to play in England, he will likely attact some high–end offers from elsewhere and Werder Bremen could price him out over a move to the premiership. Bayern will no doubt have their eye on him, and likely a couple of Italian and Spanish clubs.

Sharkey.

Vichai Maleenont and his family are in talks with Milan Mandaric over the takeover of Leicester City. Vichai and his family are worth around $450 million and will pay around £28m to buy Leicester and will invest up to £30m over the next 2 years, with around £20m of it going on reducing the clubs massive debts, including the stadium debt.

Leicester's new sponsor is also likely to be related to Vichai's company, BEC World Media Group.


not really debating the rumour, just wanted to say that I thought the foxes paid off the stadium debt when Mandaric arrived? Also heard rumours our sponsor next season will be crunchie (as in the chocolate bar)

RUMOUR 1 Gerrard is still not convinced of LFC future until substantial funds are invested in new international star calibre players.

Gerrard would only leave LFC for Real and as Mourinho is so keen on Stevie, Liverpool would be able to use the sale of Masch and Gerrard for Kaka..

Kaka would play europa league football as he did so at Milan but would you think this deal would be favourable for LFC?

RUMOUR 2 Torres is the last of a dying breed of loyal "keep yourself to yourself" players most notably his low key wedding to his childhood sweetheart. He is desp to win things with LFC but unless we attract big players he will not want to waste his prime years of his career battling for 4th.
Liverpool have asked him to convince Pedro/Mata to join him at Anfield and in return have suggested they will look to buy a 2025mil forward to partner him.. whispers of Aguero. Thoughts? {editor's note – do you really think there is a chance of Kaka (who is more like kack these days anyway) signing for Liverpool?}

Im 40 years old and my cousin is one of the scout at man city he gave me some inside information that the club are keeping tabs on lucio and a deal could be struck around 15million wednesday afternoon, also he told me they are also looking at casilas and a deal for 20 million should be completed soon as the end of the week. Also milner has been looking around the training and facilites today

haha this is to funny

Man City so sign casillas for 20 million mate ur having a laugh
real madrid would want at least 40 mill for him since hes only 30 and is still one of the best in the world
also you really think Hart and Given are gonna be 2nd and 3rd choice keepers
also Lucio15 million
inter paid more than that to sign him and he has developed since so ud have to pay at leats 25 mill to get him
also both play for champions league teams and get paid over 100,000 a week so why would they move to europa league team when they will be playing champions league and competing for trophies


now onto some real rumours and doings
Torres could leave Liverpool depending on what Hogdsons plans are
Gerrard will stay
Chelsea will attempt to sign Ozil an if Torres does leave Liverpool then Cheslea will sign him
Arsenal will complete signings of Schwarzer and Konsicley soon
Man United are after Tomas Muller
Tottenham will battle it out with Arsenal for J.Cole

Roy Hodgson is looking to add both experience and english talent into the squads but is watching positions carefully to see where he needs to add. He has talked with Kenny Dalglish who has outlined the main positions that needs fixed.

If Mascherano leaves expect a cheap CDM like Gilberto Silva to arrive and the rest of the cash put towards a winger or a second striker. Money from the kitty and Yossi's money will be put towards a new centre back and/or Left back to fill that position. If Nemeth decides to leave the club or N'gog for that matter expect a bid for a Mr.Church from Reading.


The money from Yossi sale will NOT be given to Hodgson. This money will be used to pay off Rafa and compensation to Fulham

Arsenal

Schwarzer, Handanovic or Eduardo (Portugal) to replace Almunia as number 1

Koscielny and one of Rafik Halliche (Algeria) or Per Mertersacker replacing Gallas and Silvestre.

Khedira or Honda to be added to midfield (maybe only if Rosicky leaves, but one could join if he stays)

If Fabregas leaves Khedira and Honda will both join or Ozil. Wouldn't mind seeing this but at the moment looks as though he may stay.

Honda could also join if Eduardo leaves (likely) as he can also play more of a striker role.

 

05 Jul 2010 14:38:39
It's true that Carl Dickinson has said he would love a permanent return to Barnsley. Plus he'd never go to you because he'd be scared that we'd go back to Deepdale and annihilate you 41 again ;)

Billy Sharp has finally completed his move to Doncaster for 1.1 million pounds. As It has been said all along, Leeds will not be signing him. They are expected to announce the signing of a striker once they return from Slovakia, noone knows who it will be, I personally hope Hooper but think he is too costly for Uncle Ken

 

05 Jul 2010 14:12:56
"David Nugent Back to preston north end his true home were he will be joined instead of by jason scotland it will be by ross mccormack for a complete fee of £4M
to reinforce his defence darren fergusan will take carl dickinson from stoke along with kyle walker on a season long loan from spurs, luke daniels from tranmere young keeper from his old club peterborough he will sign aaron mclean"

Luke Daniels is a West Brom player, Tranmere had him on loan. Hope we can get him back again, but if not someone will get an excellent season's loan, he's a great young keeper.

Mufc targets

versatile att mid options

ozil = 1 year left on contract , so cheapish and only view move to utd and chesea in prem, his words not mine.
or
sanchez = possible but price tag to high due to udinese wanting to keep him for one more year.

utd have been keeping tabs on both players since both were teenagers.

ninis = possible if other two fail

strikers

benzema = fergie favorite and will come cheaper than last year due to poor season.

fabiano = no chance , to old and to much

suarez = to similar to rooney, no chance

your opinion ed

good source , will not revel due to freindship {editor's note – I wouldn't be surprised if you were right. Benzema is definitely his favoured choice for striker, but I think Ninis is a bit more than third choice.}

Bolton have accepted a 15 million plus adds on for gary cahil and danny welbeck or diouf could be included in the deal as man united want another striker and will go for anton ferdinhand.

REALISTICALLY IT WOULD BE AROUND 10M PLUS 5M IN POSSIBLE ADD ONS. ALSO DANNY WELBECK OR DIOUF WOULD BE A LOAN, NOT PERMANENT!

I THINK YOU MEANT UNITED WILL LET DIOUF OR WELBECK GO BECAUSE UNITED WANT TO MAKE ROOM FOR ANOTHER STRIKER?

DID YOU MEAN BOLTON WOULD BUY ANTON FERDINAND AS A REPLACEMENT FOR CAHILL?

I know somebody who has regular business/personal contact with Torres, can't say how as it would be unfair to them, but it is completely legit, this person had him sign a copy of his autobiography for me and sees him frequently, for instance. I am assured absolutely by this person last spoke on Frida that Torres intends to stay at Liverpool. Of course if the owners need/want to sell him that is another matter and there will always be attempts to destabilise players (Daily Mail, other clubs etc). Ed, if you look back through historical posts you will note I have consistently realyed same message. I have no knowledge of any other matter other than this (takeovers, transfers) but the source in this case is genuine. {editor's note – my sources all say exactly the same thing too mate.}

I have been told that Garry Cook CEO of Manchester City had a meeting with Fernando Torres agent Jos Antonio Martn in Valencia 3 Weeks ago at the 5 Star Hotel Las Arenas. From what i can gather the deal would be more than the Cristiano Ronaldo transfer fee, Likely blow the Yaya Tour wages out of the water. (If He Accepts It)
Adios.

Firstly, I can't see him getting a game at Manchester City – so why would the club spend so much on him? Secondly, if Mancini as already agreed a fee with Wolfsburg, why does Dzeko need to (a) hand in a transfer request, and (b) plead with Wolfsburg to let him leave?

People really need to start reading the quotes and not the headlines or what a journalist predicts will happen because its all made up and speculation, this does not mean Torres has decided to go to another Premier League club, it is what the journalists are hoping will happen and this story no matter how many times a year is printed will always have people talking about it and buying their papers.

People need to start wising up on this site, newspapers lie, that is a fact! Please read quotes and not the headlines. One more year at Liverpool then off to Barcelona, that is my bet and i am sure Liverpool fans will honour that, would you honour that Ed? Do you think what i have said is fair regarding 'Daily Mail' & 'Daily Mirror'? {editor's note – the whole story is just a non–story wrapped up in a few blatant fabrications from a journalist trying to shift a few extra copies. The whole thing is a nonsense.}

OLD FIRM NEWS

Rangers
Chris brunt will head to glasgow sometime this week for talks deal could be done by next monday.
David Goodwillie has also stated his desire to join the club however Rangers are not willing to pay the £3 million price tag given by Dundee Utd.
Boyd has already left, but don't expect many others to go (not any big names at least).

Celtic
Bellamy has been given a £10 million+ price tag which celtic will not pay.
Keane will not be moving North either mainly due to the fact that he still wants a crack at the spurs team.
Celtic do have the upper hand in the Ledley deal however should rangers manage to sign Chris Brunt West Brom may put up stiff competition for the signature of the Welshman.
JP ;)

To the guy who said brunt to ibrox

i think you are deluded mate. in the paper there isn't any quotes only the paper stating what they believe. he would cost more than 2 mill plus he would want more than 18k a week which walter has already said is all he can offer any player at ibrox or coming to ibrox which should put the bullard going there rumour to bed. Also the paper doesn't even say brunt would love to play for rangers but says would welcome the move, but again no qoutes

midfield fletcher, scholes, giggs, hargreaves, anderson, carrick, gibson, valencia, nani + obertan
forwards rooney, berbatov, hernandez, macheda + owen
Looking at that we only need a new keeper and a 20 goalaseason man ( Suarez ) to help rooney

 

05 Jul 2010 12:57:44
The disgraceful rubbish that litters this site about Liverpool will contiue as long as we are stupid enough to believe, "my mate is a mate of Bill's mate who delivers milk to someone who cuts Carragher's mate's lawn!"
Roy Hodgson (RH) will take a short time to run through the squad before he talks to the chairman and Purslow about movements.
RH has been around the game and knows agents, chairmen and other managers.
It is inconceivable that during the World Cup he did not think about players he wanted/does not want should the job be offered to him.

I tend to skim through the gossip and ignore the outlandish and sift for the facts.
Dalglish will help RH.
Gerrard will stay.
Torres probably wants to stay, but his agent would not be averse to him moving for financial reasons.
Man City's shocking disregrard for the overall finances of the game will blow a hole in wage restraints and damage the game. In the shortterm their greed and financial lunacy will damege LFC and others struggling with debts.

 

05 Jul 2010 13:00:19
Torres will sit down with Liverpool after the WC that is obvious. (Ed I have never seen you so wound up about an Issue are you an LFC red) I am sure LFC will try and keep Torres but ultimately he will want to see investment in the squad or I think he will want to leave. Why would he want to play for a team outside the Champions League and rebuilding with out any investment. Ideally he would want a move to Barca but they have spent already and have other priorities. Chelses would be his best option but city could pay 70 mil plus. {editor's note – I am a red but it is just so annoying that people are believing paper talk about this. Torres' agent has said the story in the Mail is not true. By the way he stayed for years with Atletico without Champions League football, he will give the club one season I think before looking to move.}

Ed, Torres had informal talks with Abramovich in a hotel in London in April. 100% Fact. Still not sure he will leave, he is undecided. If he does his terms of his contract have already been agreed.
Macca {editor's note I don't care, Chelsea have bid for Torres every year, every year he has turned them down flat, even before he joined Liverpool. Now they are lowering their wages you think he will suddenly decide to join a team he doesn't want to play for that he has openly said he would not join? He is not considering a move anywhere, he has not been considering a move anywhere until AFTER the World Cup. When his World Cup is over he will sit down with his advisors and family and discuss his options. Torres will have formal talks with the club about the future and Roy Hodgson about his plans for the coming season, until he has had those there will be no move. Plus I don't believe there were any informal talks in April with Abramovich in a hotel in London, as he was receiving treatment on his knee injury in Spain during the month of April, if I remember correctly.}

ED ITS THE DAILY MAIL CLUTCHING AT STRAWS, APPARENTLY THEY SAY THAT TORRES' AGENT HAS SAID HE MAY LEAVE LIVERPOOL BUT NOT NECESSARILY THE PREMIERSHIP, SO THE PRESS HAVE JUMPED ON THE BAND WAGON AND PRESUME HE MEANS CHELSEA BECAUSE CHELSEA PLAY CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FOOTBALL, PERSONALLY I THINK HE WILL STAY AT LIVERPOOL OR GO TO BARCELONA EITHER THIS YEAR OR NEXT? BUT IF HE WAS TO GO TO A PREMIERSHIP SIDE I WOULD THINK IT COULD POSSIBLY BE CITY OVER CHELSEA NOW, I WOULD HAVE PUT CHELSEA AHEAD BECAUSE THEY PLAY CHAMPIONS LEAGUE BUT NOW THAT SILVA, TOURE AND TEVEZ WOULD BE HIS TEAM MATES, HE MAY FEEL CITY HAVE A GREAT CHANCE TO WIN THE LEAGUE, GET CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FOOTY FOR NEXT SEASON WHILE HE IS LINING HIS POCKET WITH 250K A WEEK?

CITY HAVE MADE NO EFFORTS TO SIGN DZEKO OR IBRAHIMOVIC, SURE THEY HAVE MADE THEIR INTEREST KNOWN BUT THEY HAVE NOT BID FOR THEM, SO COULD THEY BE STILL HOPING TO SIGN TORRES? WHAT DO YOU THINK ED? DO YOU THINK CITY MAY HAVE OVERTOOK CHELSEA NOW AS HIS PREFERRED DESTINATION NOW SILVA, TOURE HAVE SIGNED AND HE COULD LINK UP IN A FRIGHTENING PARTNERSHIP WITH TEVEZ?

ED I AM A UNITED FAN SO I WOULD PREFER HIM TO STAY AT LIVERPOOL OR GO TO BARCELONA, I WOULD HATE HIM TO GO TO CITY OR CHELSEA BUT OUT OF THE TWO, WHERE DO YOU THINK HE WILL GO? IF HE CHOSE PREM? {editor's note – Torres's agent has said the story is not true, that Torres is happy at Liverpool, that should be the end of any rumours of him joining Chelsea or City but I doubt it will be. I don't think he would stay in the Prem, when (not if but when) he leaves it will be for Italy or Spain in my opinion.}

Fergie is normally quick to cut his losses on a player that hasn't worked out.}

Leeds United News;

Two signings confirmed today or tomorrow.

Jay De Merit is likely to be the CB joining after Neil Collins has agreed a deal elsewhere.

Doyle is likely to sign as cover, with Koren being first choice.

Billy Sharp will join Doncaster, Leeds & Scthorpe will attempt to reach an agreed valuation for Gary Hooper. Failing to do so will result in a Top End Prem Club loaning a young striker and also one more striker.

 

05 Jul 2010 12:39:03
Taarabt deal agreed with Qpr, 2.5milion+ add ons. Up to Taarabt now, he's looking for a deal abroad but he won't get a better deal than at Qpr

BBC Radio Sheffield is reporting that a fee has been agreed between Sheffield United and Doncaster Rovers for the striker Billy Sharp. Sharp is set to rejoin the Yorkshire minnows after a period on loan at the Keepmoat last season.

All this points towards Leeds finally signing Gary Hooper from Scthorpe. Sharp was always second choice behind Hooper but terms were agreed between Leeds and the Blades man with the understanding that if Leeds captured Hooper then the deal would be void.

I now expect Hooper to sign for the Whites before the players depart on their preseason tour of Slovakia at the weekend.

Ed you got any transfer news on arsenal. {editor's note – nothing new right now, just waiting on Koscielny to complete and then a formal bid for an Everton defender. I say Everton defender because I have two conflicting bits of info from there right now, one says it is Jagielka Arsenal want, but the other believes it to be Yobo. Jagielka is the better player in my opinion, but Arsene might not be of the same opinion as me, I know both have interested him in the past, so I don't know which he would go for. The only reason I am wondering if it could well be Yobo, is because Yobo is up for grabs this summer.}

Hodgson will try to get:
ins:
1 gervinho
2 Taylor (new castle) (done) announced by the end of the week end.
3 Ashley young ( after alhilal game)
4 aguero ( last week of the negotiation period )

TAKEOVER next 8 months


Why don't you get a life, You have a £15m transfer budget and i think Athletico may want a bit more for Aguero, Villa wiill want more for young and i think gervinhos value would hacve rocketed as well.

Im assuming you mean Ryan Taylor because Steven Taylor will sign a new deal at newcastle along with Carroll and Krul.

Too every arsenal fan who says you are buying Steven Taylor, Do you really believe everything you read in the papers, Because this link has been going for about 4 years as has the N'Zogbia link and have either come off ..No, Will either come off..No.

Big Arsenal news!!

Marseille coach Didier Deschamps has confirmed his interest in bringing back Samir Nasri to his former club to team up with Lucho Gonzalez in midfield

Umm..yeah, sorry, but that is neither "news" nor is it "big". The fact that Deschamps' comments appeared on goal.com actually makes it LESS newsworthy and LESS big.

Deschamps regrets selling Nasri to Arsenal. It's nothing more than seller's remorse and Deschamps' comments reflect that when he says that the sale was because OM were having money issues at the time. Deschamps wishes he hadn't sold Nasri, but there's no way Arsenal are selling him back to OM.

Nothing to get all breathless about.

 

05 Jul 2010 12:13:56

Just to clear a few things up:
1.Manchester United are easily paying off their debt per
year, although it isn't going down, the interest fees are easily being paid.

2.A bid matched Barcelona's for David Villa, this stops people saying that we don't have money.

3.Nemanja Vidic on form is the 1st or 2nd top centre back in the world and will not be sold for anywhere near £10 or £15m. Expect £25m at least

4. SAF is looking to sign 2 or 3 more players. Vermijl, Hernandez and Smalling are already here.

5.SAF went to watch Ozil last season, and after the world cup is finished a bid of £20m will be lodged.

6.When Berbatov is sold as well as Anderson and Carrick a bid of £25m for Benzema will be made.

7.Also expect a bid for Pablo Barrera of UNAM Pumas.

Roy Hodgson is looking to add both experience and english talent into the squads but is watching positions carefully to see where he needs to add. He has talked with Kenny Dalglish who has outlined the main positions that needs fixed.

If Mascherano leaves expect a cheap CDM like Gilberto Silva to arrive and the rest of the cash put towards a winger or a second striker. Money from the kitty and Yossi's money will be put towards a new centre back and/or Left back to fill that position. If Nemeth decides to leave the club or N'gog for that matter expect a bid for a Mr.Church from Reading.

 

05 Jul 2010 12:21:40
Hello Ladies and Gents.
Dzeko to City is imminent. All you Manchester City fans out there breath easy because you finally got your man.

Dzeko is about to hand in a transfer request and he is pleading to the Wolfsburg staff to let him join Eastlands.

The deal will not be the 50 million asked by Wolfsburg, however Mancini has agreed a fee with the German club in the region of 40 million. The deal will be announced in the coming days.

This will take Mancini's spending to 100 million pounds!

 

05 Jul 2010 12:25:18
What is the status regading Sebastian Larsson, does aanyone know? Is he signing a new contract with Birmingham, if not, are West Ham still keen on his signature? For me that man is a quaility player and can play both right back and right midfield. Strong attitude and quick paced. He always plays good when he's playing for Sweden.

 

05 Jul 2010 12:26:25
Just heard a fresh rumour for you all. Take it as you will. I have relatives based in the German club and they have released this privy information regarding the sale of Edin Dzeko..

Manchester City have agreed a fee for Dzeko.
It is believed to be 38 million euros.
The deal will conclude in a matter of days as Dzeko has handed in a transfer request.

The news will appear in the media within 24 hours.

As a wolfsburg fan, i am sad to see such a talent leave.

If you could clear things up Editor that would be great! {editor's note – Inter were interested in him a long time ago but signed Maicon instead.

Tottenham are looking to make a sign of intent towards other premier league clubs inc. Man City by making two massive signings funded by sales and a £25mil30mil warchest. The wage structure will be broken massively in order to do so.

Ibrahimovic £31.5mil (90k per week)

Robinho £22mil (80k per week)

Big signings, but risky in that there is a combined £53.5mil spend and the wage structure is smashed with both on top wages, poss upsetting other players.

Both players also have a tainted past. They both are known to have a bad attitude, think more about the individual or money and enjoy the party lifestyle, therefore its risky, but Harry thinks they can combine brilliantly in a 4231 formation and all they need is to be loved.

 

05 Jul 2010 12:31:33
Ipswich have been quick of the mark to offer sacked Steve Tilson a role as Roy Keane's Assistant. The warring CEO Clegg and manager Roy Keane both agree with this one, Keane impressed with Tilson's loyalty and general decency, whilst Clegg wants someone with good managerial experience on board in case Keane walks or is pushed.

Tilson's reaction is not yet known but the suspicion is that he may want to see what options are open as a number one.

Brentford have enquired about taking Counago, but were quickly put off by his wage demands.

Torres aint gonna join another EPL team.. That is FACT!! He's said numerous times he wouldn't want to play for another prem league team after Liverpool, personally (I don't know agents or staff at anfield or Torres missus family member unfort) I think Torres will stay at Anfield for one more year, he said he loves the clubs and with his injuries wants to have one more season before leaving prob for Barca or maybe try Italy.

Walsall rumours

Two former Norwich players are training with Walsall. One is 34 year old, Jamie Cureton, who expressed his intrest in the club a month ago but Hutchings rubbished the rumours. I can now confirm he is training with The Saddlers to keep his fitness up, but will still be trying to impress Hutchings.

The other is one of Hutchings' targets, Gary Doherty. After been released by Norwich, Hutchings was eager to bring him to Walsall, and has offered him a 1 year contract, with a possible 1 year on top of that if he wishes.

The only problem with signing either of these players, they both demand high wages, but Hutch is trying to find a way around it.

More Celtic info..As i posted last night Bellamy may go back to Celtic if we can move Aiden on for about 8M to cover the fee with Bellamy wanting 60k and Celtic only having 40k tops with merchandice add ons. With Liverpool looking likely to get Ashley Young from Villa, M O'niell will make a bid for Bellamy as he rates him highly so Bellamy will favour a move to the Midlands instead. Friends with a person in the know. What do you think Ed? I'm a hoops fan and would love Bellamy back but Villa are a bigger attraction.

Hail Hail. {editor's note – I could see the attraction of Villa for him, I don't know if it will happen, but I could understand if he chose to sign for them. I just wonder if the lure of returning home to Cardiff might just win out in the end.}

Reply to this:
Ed, Torres had informal talks with Abramovich in a hotel in London in April. 100% Fact. Still not sure he will leave, he is undecided. If he does his terms of his contract have already been agreed.
Macca {editor's note I don't care, Chelsea have bid for Torres every year, every year he has turned them down flat, even before he joined Liverpool. Now they are lowering their wages you think he will suddenly decide to join a team he doesn't want to play for that he has openly said he would not join? He is not considering a move anywhere, he has not been considering a move anywhere until AFTER the World Cup. When his World Cup is over he will sit down with his advisors and family and discuss his options. Torres will have formal talks with the club about the future and Roy Hodgson about his plans for the coming season, until he has had those there will be no move. Plus I don't believe there were any informal talks in April with Abramovich in a hotel in London, as he was receiving treatment on his knee injury in Spain during the month of April, if I remember correctly.}

Ed, The mail is reporting this that torres is off to chelsea & i know you should not believe everything them rags print, but guillem ballague has been saying this for months that torres would consider chelsea.

The thing is ed the liverpool squad is not as bad as people make out i.e torres/gerrard/carragher/maxi/kuyt/masch/agger/johnson/reina and if hodgson can keep the core together & bring 3 very good players with a bit of wheeling & dealing or if a sale does go through before the window shuts, it will push for a top 4 again.
Pete {editor's note – Guillem Balague has also been on SSN saying that Torres's agent denies the statement in the Mail was ever made. It is just nonsense aimed at increasing sales.}

===============
''Mcgeady is staying with celtic end of. Don't get your knickers in a twist about it.''

Me thinks this is bulls. McGeady will be leaving. Stop thinking your team are bigger than they actually are. Once one celtic fan says something you all jump on the bandwagon, belittling everybody elses rumours just because it may have a detrimental effect on your crowd. clown. Daviebhoy appears to be the only celtic fan with any sense on here. Both halves of the old firm are as bad for it but celtic seem to be the worst.

Joe Cole is considering his options but I think he will end up at either Tottenham or Arsenal. Man U is a shout basically to get away from London but i reckon he'll stay down there. John Il Moukon is being targetted by Arsenal again as is Edin Hazard. Chelsea most definately want to sign Torres and with the financial problems at Liverpool it is a good possibility.

Tbh I think that all the rumours circulating Barnsley aren't going to happen. If any the most likely would surely be Derek Riordan as we have been chasing him for a couple of years now and he is a proven striker with a good goals per game ratio which is what we need seeing as we only have Iain Hume, Andy Gray & Liam Dickinson attacking wise atm. I would also say Carl Dickinson would be a likely transfer but if Jay McEvely arrives at Oakwell then I doubt that will happen.

Here we go again, do you people not check on other sites before making stupid comments like this

05 Jul 2010 09:36:04
Who should ManU sign considering their voids n financial troubles?
Well, a large part of this depends on the sale of players like Vidic, Berbatov, Anderson, Gibson, Carrick n Obertan. The "most likely to leave" list includes Berba, Anderson and Carrick. Vidic will only leave for Real Madrid.
Keeping all these things in mind, we can easily accumulate approx 32 Mil through sales. Add the 25 Mil that SAF has got from the yanks n u r looking at a figure of arround 57 mil.
The following voids need to be filled immidiately:
RB a position that hasn't been ManU's strength for quite some time now. We hve Neville n Rafael bt neither of them can be trusted for excellent performances in the nxt 2 seasons. With Maicon joining Mourinho, Ramos might be surplus to RM's needs. Bt he is likely to cost arnd 2530 mil.
CAM Ninis would fit perfectly with his versatility. He can be groomed under the guidance of Scholes for a year n be prepared for the future by one of the best. He is likely to cost around 10mil. Other costlier options are Hazard (25 mil) n Pjanic (15 mil not sure). Sneijder n Ozil would be dream add ons to the squad bt lets be realistic, with their performances at the wc n the interest frm some "wealthier" clubs, we might nt be able to get them.
RF Rooney is immaculate when he's near the penalty area. We need some1 who has good long range abilities n who can be a good supplier to Wayne. Benzema(22 mil) n Hernandez(done) fit in perfectly. Suarez(more than 28 mil) is in the same mould as Rooney, so no point having 2 of them in the same team. And Fabiano (2530 mil) is, well, too old n too costly an option.
GK Believe me ppl, the Akinfeev (8 mil) deal is as good as done n he fits in perfectly. Other alternatives may be Neuer, Lloris n Asenjo bt a number of clubs are interested in them too.
Selling Vidic can bring in some cash and Kjaer (12mil) or Cahill(15mil) coming in would leave an additional 10mil to SAF's kitty.
As I mentioned earlier, money might restrict SAF's ambitions. Not all of the above would materialize.


Kjaer is signing for Wolfsburg.


gooner for life

Vichai Maleenont and his family are in talks with Milan Mandaric over the takeover of Leicester City. Vichai and his family are worth around $450 million and will pay around £28m to buy Leicester and will invest up to £30m over the next 2 years, with around £20m of it going on reducing the clubs massive debts, including the stadium debt.

Leicester's new sponsor is also likely to be related to Vichai's company, BEC World Media Group.

Some people are funny hahaha, putting rumours up of players who have already signed for clubs, av just seen one liverpool to sign silva, considering he has just joined city, and am a liverpool fan. Now there is a rumour here that liverpool are looking at dempsey and i know people are gonna say , but roy has an agreement and if u listen to what roy said he said ' i have an agreement i won't be raiding fulham, one player is not a raid. Also the hyypia rumour is gathering pace , but bayer lev are asking for 2+mill and Roy does not want to spend that, hopefully smthing can be sorted and the last rumour is nzogbia, don't know how true this is but apparently he is now classed as home grown. {editor's note – I don't believe the Silva rumour was referring to David Silva but to Gilberto Silva.}

DB9, pretty sure Martin O'Neill has nothing to do with Ashley Cole joining Liverpool, and I'm pretty sure you didn't see him there. I guess you mean Ashley Young? Probably a lie also."

In response to this, the guy clearly made a typo but 2 of my friends posted on facebook that they seen ashley YOUNG in L1 on sunday so its either a massive coincidence that so many people would tell the same lie or its true. In which case it doesn't mean he is signing for liverpool maybe he just likes nando's chicken :)

Torres will go to the highest bidder now he has officially told Liverpool he wants out. Chelsea and Man City are the only two clubs in the running and will start a bidding war and we all know who will win that one don't we eh. Expect Torres at Man City £80m and £200k per week. {editor's note Torres has not officially told anyone anything yet, the closest to anything official coming from Torres was him telling the mascot that he would not join another EPL team. In case you have missed it, City and Chelsea play in the EPL, which would mean it isn't either of them.}

Torres is set for another EPL CLUB in this mornings DAILY MAIL newspaper. Ed these are his agents words NOT MINE! {editor's note – no, they are more journalistic nonsense from a paper that is known for its constant lies about Liverpool. Anyway, it doesn't actually say anything of the sort if you read the quotes, it is absolute rubbish.}

Roy Hodgson is targetting Joe Cole as a replacement for Yossi Benayoun and Albert Riera. Arda Turan is second choice of the scouting team. He (Hodgson) is currently assessing the strength of the squad before making any other moves but realises he acts to act quickly over Cole. It is highly unlikely that Real Madrid will match LFC's valuation of Gerrard so don't expect talks to even enter in to a preliminary stage. There is an offer from Italy for Skrtel and Ayala is off to Spain. Torres' agent is talking to interested clubs as a fall back in case things deteriorate at LFC over the summer but this is unlikely. Masch still likely to leave, giving Hodgson a healthy transfer budget to bring in a couple of quality English players. It is thought the deal for Wilson from Rangers is now dead in the water. Martin Kelly to be given a chance to continue to impress and Taylor of Newcastle being considered. Left back seen as other problem area, some experience likely to be sought allowing Insua and Mavinga time to progress

05 Jul 2010 10:11:00
Hammers to make the following moves in the next monthall serious rumours cooberated by various sources inside and outside the club.


1) Cole will be sold if buyer agrees £10 million up front, with 3 million in add ons (ie appearances/goals/caps)

Should they sell Cole, then Piquionne has been lined up as a short term replacement, around the £1.5 million mark.

2) Neymar is a definate goer, although G and S are struggling to broker the deal to ensure the profit from his future sale stay with the Hammers and not a third party agent. The Chelsea link with this deal is a red herin, as Man City are being lined up a parent club for us.

3) The French lad Remy doesn't want to come, he wants to wait for Arsenal in a couple of years. He will remain in France till then.

4) It's hoped Upson and Green will sign new contracts, although if offers in excess of £6 million are received for either then these will be considered providing replacements can be found first.
The replacement CH will be Wheater and GK will be James.

5) Other live targets include Joe Cole, Henry, Pennent, Scott Loach, Barrera (mexican winger) and the two they are desperate to keep quiet, and closest to finalising, is none other than..
Chris Samba for £7 million and
Roman Pavluchenko for an inital £9 million fee, raising to £11.5 depending on goals/europe quals.

These are all genuine leads, which should ensure the hammers have a somewhat better season than last time.

M.U.F.C. NEWS

Firstly, all these transfer rumours are crazy. Manchester United will spend this summer but Sir Alex will be not pay over the odds for players. Can we really see him spending 30million on 29 year old Fabiano!!!! No chance!

I believe our defence is solid as long as Vidic stays and with the arrival of Chris Smalling and the progress of Jonny Evans and the Da Silva twins, we look okay in that department.

When I think of our goalkeepers the alarm bells start ringing.. Van Der Sar is 40 and that Polish keeper isn't world class and with rookie Ben Amos, Im concerned.

Our attacking options are strange. 7 forwards in the first team of which only Rooney stands out, Berbatov doesn't score enough goals and is lazy, Owen injury prone, Wellbeck built like a sparkler. Maceda, Diouf and Hernandez our unproven in the Premier league.

As for our Midfield. Where do I start!

MUFC Ins..
Smalling
Herdandez
Ninis

Anderson

Forget Donovan to Everton this summer.
LA Galaxy will keep him to ensure they win the MLS and then they'll be in the World Club Championship which they will also want to keep him for.
Only when that is finished (January 2011 I think) will Donovan be allowed to leave, either on loan again (likely) or, if the deal can be done before the window closes he could be an Everton player in January 2011. Otherwise it'll be the summer of 2011 before he returns home to Goodison.

Arsenal Rumours

Goal Keepers:
The Gunners have missed out on Eduardo who signed for Genoa

So seems Schwarzer will sign.

Defenders:

Van der wiel if and only if Sagna leaves that also if Maicon moves to Madrid.

Hangeland may move to the Emirates because Roy Hodgson admitted he won't buy from Fulham.

Koscielny deal may have been put on hold till after the World Cup ends.

Gary Cahill will not move as he's going to Manchester United.

Simon Kjaer is moving to Tottenham.

High Probability of Mertesacker joining
So in defence a lot of work needs to be done.

Midfield

Wenger may give Rosicky another year to get to form but otherwise only Fabregas may leave, If he leaves Gourcuff will sign, Arsene Wenger trusts him even though he had a miserable WC.

Gervinho if the price is right and Liverpool don't get to him first

If Fabregas stays then some young talent may join.Afellay maybe

BUT I REALLY HOPE HE SIGNS EDEN HAZARD!! YOU DON'T WANNA LOOSE HIM !!

Forwards

Eduardo will be sold for 3 Million and Vela will spend half the year on loan

Honda may move considering how much Wenger praises him

Sorry but Carl Dickinson is going to either fight for a place at Stoke or go to Barnsley. He has already said after a successful loan spell that he likes the club and would come back!

He is to join darren furgosson under his new squad coming at deepdale he aspires preston as a better and bigger club with more pay also a better changce of getting to the premiership ! Preston to sign jason scotland ! any PRESTON rumours ?

It's true that Carl Dickinson has said he would love a permanent return to Barnsley. Plus he'd never go to you because he'd be scared that we'd go back to Deepdale and annihilate you 41 again ;)

 

05 Jul 2010 09:36:04
Who should ManU sign considering their voids n financial troubles?
Well, a large part of this depends on the sale of players like Vidic, Berbatov, Anderson, Gibson, Carrick n Obertan. The "most likely to leave" list includes Berba, Anderson and Carrick. Vidic will only leave for Real Madrid.
Keeping all these things in mind, we can easily accumulate approx 32 Mil through sales. Add the 25 Mil that SAF has got from the yanks n u r looking at a figure of arround 57 mil.
The following voids need to be filled immidiately:
RB a position that hasn't been ManU's strength for quite some time now. We hve Neville n Rafael bt neither of them can be trusted for excellent performances in the nxt 2 seasons. With Maicon joining Mourinho, Ramos might be surplus to RM's needs. Bt he is likely to cost arnd 2530 mil.
CAM Ninis would fit perfectly with his versatility. He can be groomed under the guidance of Scholes for a year n be prepared for the future by one of the best. He is likely to cost around 10mil. Other costlier options are Hazard (25 mil) n Pjanic (15 mil not sure). Sneijder n Ozil would be dream add ons to the squad bt lets be realistic, with their performances at the wc n the interest frm some "wealthier" clubs, we might nt be able to get them.
RF Rooney is immaculate when he's near the penalty area. We need some1 who has good long range abilities n who can be a good supplier to Wayne. Benzema(22 mil) n Hernandez(done) fit in perfectly. Suarez(more than 28 mil) is in the same mould as Rooney, so no point having 2 of them in the same team. And Fabiano (2530 mil) is, well, too old n too costly an option.
GK Believe me ppl, the Akinfeev (8 mil) deal is as good as done n he fits in perfectly. Other alternatives may be Neuer, Lloris n Asenjo bt a number of clubs are interested in them too.
Selling Vidic can bring in some cash and Kjaer (12mil) or Cahill(15mil) coming in would leave an additional 10mil to SAF's kitty.
As I mentioned earlier, money might restrict SAF's ambitions. Not all of the above would materialize.

For all those saying YOSSI was sold cos he is Jewish and there has been an Arab takeover are you mad.
There has BEEN NO TAKEOVER and even more telling ROY HODGSON is JEWISH!!!

IN RAFA WE TRUST {editor's note – I was wondering when someone would notice that fact. I keep hoping that will put a stop to the stupid rumours about it being because Yossi was Jewish that he left. Yossi left because he can sit on Chelsea's bench and earn a lot more money than he can earn sitting on Liverpool's end of. All this crap about it being a dream come true is the same drivel he spouted on joining Liverpool. I am just wondering if he try the 'I was always a fan of them' like he did with Liverpool.}

Ed, Torres had informal talks with Abramovich in a hotel in London in April. 100% Fact. Still not sure he will leave, he is undecided. If he does his terms of his contract have already been agreed.
Macca {editor's note – I don't care, Chelsea have bid for Torres every year, every year he has turned them down flat, even before he joined Liverpool. Now they are lowering their wages you think he will suddenly decide to join a team he doesn't want to play for that he has openly said he would not join? He is not considering a move anywhere, he has not been considering a move anywhere until AFTER the World Cup. When his World Cup is over he will sit down with his advisors and family and discuss his options. Torres will have formal talks with the club about the future and Roy Hodgson about his plans for the coming season, until he has had those there will be no move. Plus I don't believe there were any informal talks in April with Abramovich in a hotel in London, as he was receiving treatment on his knee injury in Spain during the month of April, if I remember correctly.}

The mail is reporting that Torres could well be off. His agent says premier league teams could be his destination.

Well really all he said was that he is waiting til the world cup is over before meeting up with Hodgson, does that really mean that he is leaving?! I think that's just fair point really seeing as he is concentrating on the world cup!! if he leaves for EPL (which is unlikely) it def won't be to man city, what more can they offer this season than europa league?!

Ed, any Villa rumours, I have heard that the Milner deal has been agreed between the two clubs, reportly £25m. They are just waiting for him to return from hoilday to tie up the personals

Have you heard?? {editor's note – it does seem more and more likely Milner is going, which would worry me if I was a Villa fan. It suggests to me that he has lost confidence in the future direction the club is going. Why would he leave unless he feels the club is not looking to challenge for honours? I don't know where the Young rumours are coming from, O'Neill rates him very highly (for some reason) and won't let him go cheap. The Agbonlahor to Arsenal rumours I don't believe either, Wenger has Walcott if he wants to put a headless chicken that can run very fast with little to no control over what he is doing, why would he want to buy an almost exact copy? Robbie Keane should be a done deal soon and a central midfielder, I know Scott Parker was high on the list for that role, I just don't know if there is any chance that move will materialise.}

Unsigned said at 05 Jul 2010 03:46:10:

"LFC to sign Ireneusz Jelen for £7m from Auxere. Heard it from his agent."

Marseille have declared an interest in the player and clearly someone is boosting his profile by saying that there are "many French and foreign clubs" showing an interest. If Jelen did come to England it would probably be to a middle tier side – he has been a consistent but hardly outstanding player whilst he has been in France.

"Chelsea will not spend big this summer. They are in more trouble than united. Not because of debt but because of the huge wage bill. even though they only bought zhirkov last year they still made a huge loss."

You are right that they need to bring down the wage bill – but do not get wrapped up in the loss made by the club last year. They are by no means self sufficient at this time, but it should be remembered that the accounts included a number of one off payments incurred because of coaching staff changes.

I am afraid not. Landon Donovan is in Los Angeles and played in the game last night. I am not saying that he will not move over the summer, but at present he is concentrating on LA Galaxy. He gave the "never say never" speech when he got back to LA, and a couple of clubs had previously declared an interest in the player – and neither are Everton. Sharkey.

Not bad, but it'd be Gulacsi instead of Hansen, Kelly instead of Darby, then Ayala instead of Kelly at CB. I'd rather have Lucas than Silva or Murphy, and would keep N'Gog so that we're not relying on Kuyt in two positions all season.

To the person who said this:

"Andy Keogh is a rumour nothing more, and he isn't a goal scorer. The Man. Utd kid is Mame Biram Diouf who has great potential but that's it. Who's going to get us the goals;

Ameobi 214 games and 42 goals which is rubbish
Maynard 137 games and 63 goals which is excellent

This wouldn't be something that Coppell would be interested in. It'll take 6m+ cash before City would even consider thinking about letting Maynard go."

Ameobi has played the majority of those games in the prem. Has Maynard? As soon as Ameobi was in the championship he found his home, and without injuries could easily have been top scorer. I'm not saying the rumour is true, but read into the facts a bit more!

Torres will go to the highest bidder now he has officially told Liverpool he wants out. Chelsea and Man City are the only two clubs in the running and will start a bidding war and we all know who will win that one don't we eh. Expect Torres at Man City £80m and £200k per week. {editor's note – Torres has not officially told anyone anything yet, the closest to anything official coming from Torres was him telling the mascot that he would not join another EPL team. In case you have missed it, City and Chelsea play in the EPL, which would mean it isn't either of them.}

Liverpool are set to sign karim Benzema from Real Madrid. The french striker had a torrid season last year and new manager Jose Mourinho wants rid. Mourinho is willing to let Benzema go if he can have first refusal on Steven Gerrard next summer. Gerrard is willing to give liverpool one more season to get back in to the champions league and if not is going abroad.
The fee touted is supposed to be around 1518 million.
Liverpool are also linked with Rafael Van Der Vaart from Madrid also. Don't be shocked to see a combined bid of around 20 million for the two attack minded players.
You heard it here first.

I love this site, I thought us Leeds fans lived in the clouds sometimes but coming on here n seeing that Preston are signing about 10players all with transfer fees even though you nearly went into administration does make me laugh, 4million for nugent ha more likely to resign healy, anyway Russell will sign this week with a cb to follow and we will be made to wait for beckfords replacement as we don't want to pay over the top just because we need a striker.Expect a couple of loans too prob players to cone on from the bench like watt M.O.T

Firstly, Mesut Ozil is not going to Manchester United. Nobody knows which club will secure his services; many are in the race.

~ Man City:
Dzeko 28 mil (Finalised after WC as they await Torres decision)

Bellamy and Santa Cruz given a price tag of 12 mil

~ Barcelona:
Fabregas 40 mil
Mascherano will not sign, he will join inter milan (Rafa is there).

~ Liverpool:
Steven Taylor has completed a medical (signed for 5 mil announced at end of week).
A club (unkown) has agreed a fee of 11.5 mil for Skrtel.

Have just received some news from a contact inside Leicester city that Australian defender Adrian Leijer will have a 1 week trial at the club soon with a view of a possible transfer if successful.

He has played in the UK before with Fulham and Norwich and would like a move back to England to break into the Australian national team.

Fee is believed to be around 150k plus more based on appearances.

Now i know you are talking absolute rubbish. Barclays Capital is not even based at 1 Churchill Place. If you're going to make up fanciful rubbish at least do your homework.

Sorry mate you do your homework, barclays is at (1 Churchill Place, London) so sorry to you.

Indeed Barclays Bank PLC are based at 1CP. However, you will find Barcap operates from different premises in London Condor House & 5 The North Conolade.

As for actual rumolurs, Man Utd to sign Ozil for £20M. The debt situation isn't the huge doom and gloom scenario made out by some people. Luis Suarez also interests SAF but any deal is dependant upon the sale of Berbatov. Carrick is also likely to be shown the door at OT.

Why does everybody think that all these german superstars are going to pack up and come to england? They won't.. the german league is the most even, has the highest goals per game ratio and possibly the most exciting league in europe.. the top 6 clubs in germany have the financial muscle to keep their players happy, plus they don't have to learn a new language and adapt to a new culture.. everybody that has liked Muller to Man Utd, keep dreaming, the kid worships Van Gaal for pulling him out of the the Bayern 3rd team and giving him a chance.. same with Neuer, he's been with Shalke since he was 8 years old, he's a local boy and he loves the club.. what makes you think he would abandon his club to come and play for united when he doesn't have too.. you wouldn't say this about giggs or carragher.. guys who deeply love thier club..

the big boys in england are going to look local this year, all the rules are moving in that direction, starting next year with the 8 home grown rule and the limited squad. expect a bit of a fire sale on players from the england side beaten by germany in the U21 european championship final. Hodgeson has already come out and said he is looking to go british where possible

05 Jul 2010 05:47:26
In reply to :"P.s has it ever been confirmed that Mufc put a £30m bid in for Villa?? and dya really think Utd would get him or Ozil?? i dont!!"

Yes it has been confirmed by SAF yesterday. Before you say he lied , Valencia president also confirmed that they had an equal offer from united, but villa did not want to move country so he chose barcelona. So united do have money. Yes united can get ozil because he wants success and trophies, not money, so city will not be involved. Also he is in last year of his contract so his club cannot hold anybody for ransom.

 

05 Jul 2010 05:52:51
Chelsea will not spend big this summer. They are in more trouble than united. Not because of debt but because of the huge wage bill. even though they only bought zhirkov last year they still made a huge loss. So to meet the regulations they have let joe cole, ballack and deco leave. They will not be replaced and if they are then only with players like benayoun. Ancelotti was brought in because he is good tactically, can get the best out of ageing squads, and most importantly identifies cheap young talent and has a good scouting network and does not need to spend big to succeed. That is the same reason hodgson is manager of LFC. There won't be any shweinsteiger, ozil, ribery, torres etc. coming at chelsea. They want to meet the financial regulations with comfort and may look to offload cole and some youth academy players to fund transfers and post an acceptable loss.

This sounds like a load of rubbish to me, you sound like a Man City fan. If saf has no funds how was it 30m bid was put in for David Villa?? You also said when he asked for funds they told him to spend first?? Ive heard United are going to bid for Ozil. Whats your view on all of this ed? {editor's note I think there is money there to spend, just not ridiculous amounts.}

Im sorry to the guy who replied to me i meant SELL before he could SPEND. Also i am not a mcfc fan i am a very worried mufc fan because i know we are pretty much fked when it comes to money and will soon be so desperate all our fans, players and managerial staff will fk off leavin us right in the st but hey at least the yanks will leave coz there will be no money comin in from the matchdays when we only have half the ground full bad times for us on the red half of mcr. P.s has it ever been confirmed that Mufc put a £30m bid in for Villa?? and dya really think Utd would get him or Ozil?? i dont!!

NO BUT IT WAS CONFIRMED THAT UNITED EQUALED REAL MADRID'S 31M OFFER FOR BENZEMA BUT HE CHOSE REAL MADRID! UNITED ARE LOOKING AT ATTACKING MIDFIELDERS BUT CANNOT AFFORD TO GET INTO A BIDDING WAR WITH ANYONE, THIS IS WHY ITS BEEN QUIET, UNITED WILL SIGN A PLAYER BEFORE THE END OF THE WINDOW DO NOT WORRY.

Just to put one of the recurring arguments to an end, Barcap is located at:

The South Colonnade,
Canary Wharf,
E14 4BB

And, Barclays PLC is at.. yup, you guessed it:

1 Churchill Place,
Canary Wharf,
E14 5HP

(There the same company, but wholly seperate entities!)

As a former intern working at BarCap I can confirm that many negotiations take place between the two offices, and old colleagues of mine have been telling me that there are bids which have been put in, as they work in the Investment Banking side/arm of the business and that the bank are negotiating terms with both RBS, Broughton and laying out to potential bidders the figures that need to be placed.
As it has been reported, there is no strict deadline as such, but BarCap would look to move this swiftly as they do not want to get entangled in the same manner that RBS have.

Were roughly looking at another two months of protracted negotiations/due dilligence.

But soon all will be revealed!

Joe Ledley would prefer to move to West Brom as it is nearer to his family in Wales and there style of football would suit him better. Ledley has been discussing personal terms at Stoke but they have been put on hold until he has a medical at the Hawthorns this week. If he does complete his move then Cardiff City will be due with around £750,000 possibly rising to £1,000,000. Will be sad to see him leave Cardiff but good luck Joe! Keep up the good work for Wales.

you must have noticed by now that if joe cole wanted to join tottenham or arsenal he would have done it by now. He was waiting to see who the next liverpool manager was.Now it is roy hodgson who is known for getting the best out of players he has opted for a team with a great future ahead of them by the end of the summer they WILL (heard from a reliable source) have new owners who are willing to back their manager and clear all debt.

Norwich City will hold a Press Conference tomorrow to annouce the signings of John Ruddy & Simeon Jackson.

Ruddy's fee will be relatively low due to his desire to leave Everton, and the fact that he is surplus to requirements. Motherwell wanted to make his transfer permanent, but couldn't match the £200k wanted by the Merseyside club.

Fraser Forster is still being targetted for a loan move, although sadly he seems set to join Burnley.

Norwich remain in the hunt for a new RB, winger, central midfielder and further striker. Expect most business to be concluded before next weekend, although a couple of late moves may be made by the club considering their revitalised financial position.

Roy Hodgson wants Lee Cattermole to be one of his first signings as Liverpool boss along with Rafael Van Der Vaart.
Young, Hangeland, Ireland, Parker, Milner and Klose have also been rumours but none look likely.

Arsenal are to have any bid for Ozil rejected as the player would prefer a move to Chelsea or Barcelona.

Gignac wants a move to the Premier League with Villa and Spurs in for him.

Torres and Gerrard are to remain at Anfield this season with a clause placed into their contracts which would allow them to leave if Liverpool fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Robinho to return and stay at Man City. Bellamy, Bridge, Barry and Santa Cruz are to leave Eastlands.

Manchester United are to bid for Gary Cahill and Sotiris Ninis as well and are likely to release Anderson out on loan and will try to gather funds from Evans, Obertan and Gibson.

Newcastle have offered 3.5 million plus Shola Ameobi for Bristol City's Nicky Maynard. Bristol are holding out for the equivalent cash sum as they already have strikers Andy Keogh and an unamed Manchester United loanee lined up as replacements.

Andy Keogh is a rumour nothing more, and he isn't a goal scorer. The Man. Utd kid is Mame Biram Diouf who has great potential but that's it. Who's going to get us the goals;

Ameobi 214 games and 42 goals which is rubbish
Maynard 137 games and 63 goals which is excellent

This wouldn't be something that Coppell would be interested in. It'll take 6m+ cash before City would even consider thinking about letting Maynard go.

Scottish club rumours. all these are from talking to agent contacts in Yorkshire. Dont jump down my throat Celtic fans don't shoot the messenger.

Celtic Mc Geady deal by Tuesday which will release 6.5 million at least. EPL club . If yes then you might get a pleasant surprise with a big name signing not loan being courted by Assistant at Celtic Park. Aidan will not go to Russia. He does want to leave though. Bullard I have told you what I know Hull are desparate to cut their wages budget I am still told that the Rangers option is alive but I agree that the money may make this difficult.

Rangers You will now go for two strikers to supplement Miller One is Honduran boy WELCOME but a big name is also being courted. Loan deals and bringing baqck an ex player will happen by August.

Hearts Cousin 50/50 will be sorted next week

Dundee Utd Webster for Goodwillie is unlikely. Webster fancies a run at Ibrox this year.Yorkie LAD

OK everyone can stop the kjaer rumors now, he is off to wolfsburg source sky sports news

Torres will not leave nether will Gerrard.

Sergio Ramos wants Ashley Cole at real Madrid so why would he be going in a swap deal?

Chelsea have made enquires for mavereaux and ramires, mavereaux plays for Bordeaux and ramires plays for benfica, if they get the 2 players, that will be Chelsea done for the summer, they will not be getting Mueller or schweinstiger bayern munich WILL NOT sell them, they are both bayern through and through, lampard won't be going anywhere, Ashley Cole might link up with Jose though.

Nobody knows were Joe Cole is going to end up.

Joe ledley is interesting Liverpool and west ham.

no body knows who Roy hodgson will target, all we know is they will be British. with 1 0r 2 foreigners, mashcerano is expected to complete a 27 million pound move to Barcelona, Albert riera will either be used as part of a deal or sold for around 6 million.
Nobody knows anything of a takeover, but apparently their is big news between July 10 17th

oh and to the deluded man u fans, you won't be getting anyone of the calibire of Fabiano, dzeko, oezil, snjedier etc, just cracks me up the fact they are jealous of their bitter neighbors, expect Rooney to be sold next summer between 5075 million

iam kinda sick of seeing rangers and Leeds rumors everyday, and people saying "their in the know", or "they have a source" bottom line you know F'all, even if you did know, you wouldn't come on here and spout your b.s, 1/2 the people that post the b.s rumors, should stick to football manager, i mean come on miner and Ashley young for 35 million plus babel, this is coming from a Liverpool fan, babel is woeful, villa won't be taken for fools they could get 30 million just for milner and 1518 million for Ashley young, babel is barely worth 9 million.
Dan.

Hi editor do you have any real news or rumours about liverpool fc both signings and ownership issues? {editor's note – I am sorry but Hodgson is not fully decided on who he wants right now, he is taking a look at the players in training before making his final decision. I heard that he has been told by the coaches to have a look at Mavinga before making a move for a left back. I really hope that is true! As for the ownership, Broughton came out and openly stated the club's position right now, there is nothing that can be added to that.}

Roy Hodgson has planned talks with Joe Cole for Tuesday! With Cole also interesting Tottenham and Arsenal, Hodgson hopes guaranteed 1st team football will be enough to persuade him to move north. Roy wants to bring in Ashley Young(15m) James Milner (22m) Joe Cole (free) Keisuke Honda (15m or 8m+Riera) and Gary Cahill(12m). With the £15m budget, supplemented with the sales of Javier Mascherano (£3035m), Martin Skrtel (£12m), Dirk Kuyt (15m) Phillip Degen (1.5m)

My sources tell me that Arsene Wenger could just turn to taking Mertesacker or Subotic (but may choose Subotic) and will wait for any player in any position to be worth value. Sir Alex may be tempted into selling supperstar Berbatov to either Wolfsburg Bremen Milan or Munich. He has also enquiried about Ivica Olic and will hope to get Sotiris Ninis. Chelsea could go for 4 Germans in Lahm, Schweinsteiger, Oezil/Mueller and Podolski. Liverpool will hope to get Taylor and Jones and Young to Anfield before August. Tottenham want to buy Agbonlahor or Podolski and will heavily consider the older Forlan. I'm back. Unknown.

I heard today that Roy Hodgson is trying to bring Clint Dempsey to Liverpool, as well as Hangeland and possibly Damien Duff.

Ed, have you heard any of these? {editor's note – yes, but I don't believe a word of any of them, he has promised Al Fayed that he won't bid for any Fulham players in this transfer window.}

Sorry but Carl Dickinson is going to either fight for a place at Stoke or go to Barnsley. He has already said after a successful loan spell that he likes the club and would come back!

Any Barnsley transfer rumours?

Up the Tykes!

Callum davenport going to rangers

you better let di matteo know then because hes been training with west brom

i love reading all the rumours on these pages but when someone comes out defiantly saying that a player is signing on this day and will be unveiled at this time its pretty laughable considering no newspaper or any media outlet has reported it.

 

04 Jul 2010 22:17:36
Could somebody, ed if you have time, clear up these 3 grey areas. 1. is wesley sneijder a real madrid player or an inter player? was reading a paper the other day and it quoted him as a 'real madrid star'? and is it possible that he would move to man united?

2. was there a clause in jovanovic's contract that had anything to do with benitez? and is it possible for that to happen in the first place?

3. i am 50% certain that luis fabiano is out of contract at the end of the upcoming season. so this would considerably lower his price to even £510m as teams like man united would be more than willing to take him for free next year?

thanks for your time :)

ED Are the LFC rumours around J Cole, A Young and J Milner got any depth to them.. seems to me that some people are just jumping on the press band waggon.. Whats your take? ( i would love it if it was true) oh and SWP would be a good buy.. {editor's note – I hope the Cole rumours are not true, but I do believe that his agent has been contacted, though I believe the club were given a figure that he would want to play for Liverpool and it was dismissed as laughable. I don't know about the Young and Milner rumours, I get the impression it is guesswork by the papers rather than any actual inside knowledge.}

Heard from a taxi driver that Bellamy was up in Glasgow a couple o weeks ago and that he and Lennon and another man went to a golf course then to a restaurant. Could be bull but hope not. Oh Bullard's agent used to be evans but now represents himself, hence the reason reports said Bullard has no agent and has been speaking to both clubs this week in a bid to settle his future ahead of the new season. Also Lennon hopes to conclude that deal within days.

Ivory Coast Star Gervinho Is Liverpool Target For Roy Hodgson Report

Man Utd have 90+ million to spend FACT!

David Gill has repeatedly said so since the end of the season to allay fears of the sceptical fans who are shouting for big spends on big players.

Saf has and always will keep his cards close to his chest with targets which is why Utd have almost always got the deal done before it gets leaked to the press. So most of the names banded about are fictional rather than factual targets.

My opinion on some names

J Cole Looks likely Spurs won the race but im sure Utd will be at least speaking to him and his agent.

Dzeko no chance Wolfsburg want to much.

Sanchez Possible target but not likely to happen this year.

L Fabiano Hope so. Stumbling block will be the price. Sevilla are looking for 30+m and I have no idea why as he has already stated his reluctance to sign a new deal and his contract only has 1 year left. Saf would do business but at more like 12m with his age also almost 30.

Schweinstiger Would be awsome but very unlikely Bayern would sell without massive fee which Utd would get priced out.

Kjear Looks good and I have heard he fancies the Prem and Utd but interest looks to be fading now Vidic will be staying.

Ozil He would fit the bill in my opinion and apart from his googly eyes he looks the part to. Might have a price hike after a good WC especially if the Germans win it.

Suarez Has said himself Utd interests him and will fit in with Rooney but I think bidding war and Berba staying might put a dampner on this deal.

Aguero, Pato, Neymar, Maicon, Sneijder, Lucio, Forlan, Rossi, Van Der Vaart, Casillas, Ramos all rumours and nothing more im afraid.
