Football Rumours Archive June 05 2007
Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
Julio Cruz pass from Inter Milano to Benfica Lisbon.
My son trains with Sunderland Academy on Mondays and we saw Matthew Etherington browsing around and watching sessions at the Academy of Light today, with coach Kevin Richardson. .
The rumours are true, West ham will indeed sign AJ for a fee of 17.5million!Moyes is happy for the home sick Johnson to depart as he already has a deal in place to sign Defoe from Spurs for 10m!moyes will use the rest of the AJ cash to sign Koumas, Luke Young and secure the perm'deal of Fernendes!.
Morten Gamst Pedersen will sign for Spurs during the month on June.
New name doin the rounds on the next signing through the doors of Old Trafford. obviously they need a striker to strengthen there team and alberto gilardino's name has been whispered around. it is only a whisper but thought i'd post it anyway. have also heard though that gilardino is unhappy at Milan and wants a move this summer, so this does give some feasible backing to this story.
Wellington Phoenix are looking at Steve Glendon to provide GK cover for their two All Whites Mark Paston and Glenn Moss.
Some big changes at Ewood Park! Blackburn will keep the big guns on the wings but reshuffle the front line. Gamst and Bentley will not be leaving as they are invaluable in that they can be the key to Europe. However Benni Bigboots McCarthy is leaving for Chelsea in a 11m deal! Mark Hughes is generally happy with his squad and expects to challenge for Europe next season providing he doesn't lose further personnel. Hughes will let Jeffers go as Roberts Nonda and Darbyshire compete with a replacement for the departing Benni and Jeffers, likely to be Bellamy/ Viduka/ Defoe/ Bent. Expect Sergio Petewr and David Dunn to be key players too and the football looks to be quite exciting! I'm not a fan but good footy is appreciated the world over, like that little gem Arteta in an 'ugly' (Really no offence meant) Everton team and the still very young Cesc!
Rafa will definitely stay at Liverpool. the reason why as follows:
dani Alves £18m
Simao £5m plus Cisse
total outlay= £65m
he will sell:
Bellamy to Villa £10m
Sissoko to juve £12m
net= £43m spent
this is poss because the club normally has £20m to spend every summer. plus profits from champs league run, £25m. gives you a total of= £45m. so after sales of Bellamy an Momo there would still be £24m left which Rafa will splash on Tevez. team next season:
Finnan Carra Agger Riise
d. Alves Gerrard Mascherano Malouda
lindfield (youth) cum on you reds.
David Trezeguet wants to leave Juventus, especially after his manager's departure. He will move to Valencia this season. Villa and Trezeguet upfront! scary.
Thierry Henry is guranteed a move to Barcelona, whether he will accept terms is a different matter. The deal does not include Eto'o.
I live in Sunderland and I was at Gateshead stadium the other day watching my nephew run. Joey Barton was at the traffic lights in a black car with the window down. Believe me you choose, but it's backed up by the fact he is already negotiating a contract with Newcastle.
Gerrard and Carragher have signed contracts till 2011.
Anelka will not join Manchester United.
Andrew Johnson will not join Villa or West Ham.
Sunderland will sign Robinson from West Brom for £2m next week. Total certainty from Nick Robbs who works backroom staff there. Whether he was joking I doubt, but if he's not then its true.
To the person who said they saw the Guillem Balague interview, how about the interview 2 months ago where he said you can bet your house on Torres going to Man United as that is the only team he would join in England? The guy clearly doesn't have a clue himself!
And please shut up The Arsenalnal fan who said Arsenal will speand 35 million on Ribery, Quaresma etc you don't have that money to spend you should be banned from this site people for talking complete rubbish.
Barton was on way to Newcastle but as West Ham matched his 5.5 mill Clause he is tempted by a move to London so he will have talks with both clubs. (this will not stop Parker joining WH) .
Reo–Coker shot himself in the foot by publicly saying he wanted to move to a top four club when he clearly isn't good enough. Expect Villa to succeed with 8 mill bid (good luck to em) . HAZE
Readings Seol ki–hyeon to join Aston Villa for 3.4 million
These rumours are just off the press:
Man United have been in contact with Chelsea regarding a certain Ukranian striker . but Chelsea will probably never sell to their rivals.
Rumours of Le Sulk i.e. Nicholas Anelka coming to Old Trafford are completely false.
If the Schevchenko (sp?) bid fails ( highly likely) . the next target is Roy Makaay. similar to rude but minus the big head!
Remember VAKESH KNOWS WILL BE BACK SOON
= The United Don=
Now a few rumours for a thought.
1. Andriy Schevshenko is on his way to Inter Milan in exchange for Brazilian striker Adriano.
2. A reported £10m is being stuffed by Chelsea for Tottenham Hotspurs Pascal Chimbonda, Martin Jol is however is on the market looking for a possible replacement and F. C Porto right back Jose Bosingwa is a possibility. Louis Figo is believed to be on his way to Tottenham too.
3. Claudio Ranieri, the reported in line Manchester City manager is going to Snub the Eastland job and take over at Juventus. Players in line are reported to be momo sisoko from Liverpool, alberto gilardino from Ac Milan and should I say suprise suprise or just go on with it, well its Frank Lampard of Chelsea.
4. Westham are planning a 13mill move for Andy Johnson.
5. Arsenal are after Auxerre right back Bakari Sagna.
6. Real Madrid or Barcelona are the likely new home for Gabriel Heinze.
I don't support none of these teams and wish most of them aren't true but well, like I said rumours for a thought!
= The United Don=
Whatever guy said that milner was being shown around st james', yea fair point its possible he could leave, but to end his dissapointing season? along with Taylor he has been the only decent player all season, have u been watching netball or something?
hopefully we will sign Baines Barton, Saviola maybe? no Bolton players hopefully, at a push anelka as long as he doesn't make his mouth go as he has done for every other club he's played for.
Andrew Johnson will be allowed to move back to London this summer Westham will pay 18m for aj.
Evertons replacement will for sure be Prestons David Nugent Everton with their funds will offer Preston 8–9m for Nugent.
With Johnson on his way out Tim Cahill could also follow with Roma and Westham suitors.
Jason Koumas wants to move to Everton and Moyes could be tempted to offer 4m for the welshman.
Phil Jagielka will complete his 6m move to Goodison later this week.
With Johnson on the move their could be a future for James Beattie their are many teams interested in Beats though.
Andy Van der meyde will complete a switch to Psv in july.
– Sheffield United Rumours–
it may be a rumour but then again this is a rumour page, Robbie Fowler after being released by Liverpool I am told wants a pay as you play deal down at the Blades. BRyan Robson is keen to get the striker and he is still only 32. Robbie don't want to up route and move anywhere so the offer is on the table. Andy Reid is still after the move back north and again now Warnock has gone he may now take the offer. expect Mr Robson to use all his contacts in the game to pull players in on loan without using the money the Sheffield United board wish to keep locked away. Jagielka, Tonge, Kenny, Kasim, and Davis can all go, And as they think it will bring in 10 – 12 million ? Sadly maybe 3 million tops will be given to the new manager. Sheffield United Will then Bang on the door of the Premiership for another 10 years while the board invest the money on there very good enterprize away from Bramall Lane.
Stevie Cunningham is set to leave Lnlithgow Rose this summer and sign for FalKirk for an undisclosed fee.
Cunningham has been watched a number of times by scouts and is deemed ready to make the step up.
To the guy who said: "Arsenal will sign eto'o – Barcelona will giv us 17 mil aswell for Henry"
What a joke, Eto'o is worth at least £25m, Henry at the age if 29 is not worth £42m. Henry will join Barcelona for £15m and Arsenal will not sign Eto'o as he will join Liverpool after the completion of the La Liga season. Liverpool want to offer £25m cash but Barcelona are holding out for Alonso and £10m. Liverpool will not swap Alonso so the deal MAY fall through if Barca presist with a swap deal, Eto'o however is keen on the move as he admires the support at Anfield and wants to link up with Stevie G.
To the guy who said Benitez will leave – what an awful rumour, I would hazzard a guess that you are a bitter Everton or Man United fan?
I work on the burger van outside Celtic park and have just seen Craig Bellamy arrive also to the person who insists Boruc is going to villa, dream on why would he leave a massive club in the champs league to go to a middle of the road tin pot club
My dad is friends with Jamie Redknapp and he said that he's 100% sure Henry will sign for Liverpool
To all you wishful Man City fans,
the likes of Ranieri&Houllier do not want to take over at your club. One of Sven–Goran Eriksson, Neil Warnock, Graeme Souness or Gordon Strachan will be your new manager come the start of next season. Most likely it will be the ex–England manager Sven–Goran Eriksson but that's only if the proposed takeover is completed. If not, then Graeme Souness will be current chairman John Wardles choice to lead ou into the next Premiership campaign. Also, unless the former thai primeminister takes over, expect more poor quality signings like Samaras and Corradi that will not perform at Premiership standard. Joey Barton was your best player and he is off to Newcastle.
It's no secret that West Brom have many players being watched. Koumas will move to either Villa or Everton, Davies to Spurs and Kamara is being watched by Man City. Mowbray is looking at Sodje to replace Davies, Hasselbaink to play up front and Lee Cook from QPR.
To the total mippet who claims to be an executive with sports world and knows Mr Ashley I thinki its time to stop taking the happy pills. and for him to say that Milner was getting a last look at st James as he had a bad season what Milner were you watching. he was one of our best players. please seek medical help. campbell and Ben Haim to sign by next Friday.
Saviola is agreeing personal terms with Man United, the deal should be finalised within the next two weeks.
Huntelaar remains Ferguson's first choice, he is also interested in Eto'o but is having difficulties meeting Barcelona's asking price. So the deal seems unlikely. Expect Ferguson to bid for Huntelaar only if another club happens to bid for him this summer. Otherwise Ferguson will wait another season before attemting to sign him
Torres wouldn't be heading to Old Trafford, he has a deal lined up with another club, but he might decide to stay put. His decision!
WEST HAM RUMOURS
Sheringham, Newton, Carrol, Konchesky, Dailly, Mullins, Reo–Coker, Etherington, Harewood, Tevez
Bellamy, Viduka, Parker, Richardson, SWP, Barton, Baines, Carson.
Niell Ferdinand Upson Baines
SWP Barton Parker Richardson
Scott Parker will leave Newcastle for West Ham on Monday for 8 mil with Joey Barton on his way in for 5 mil from Man City, Man United will not sign anelka, but will sign either Torres or Huntelaar before july 1st. Simon Fowell
Mike Ashley has targeted his first big signing – former Arsenal vice–chairman David Dein.
In the dual role of chairman/ chief executive.
Mike Ashley is David Deins neighbour and good friend.
Deins Left Arsenal last month amid a row over his support for a proposed takeover of the club by American tycoon Stan Kroenke.
And that raises the Distant but tantalising prospect of Arsene Wenger – who was dismayed by long–time ally Dein's exit from Arsenal – being targeted for the manager's job at St James's Park, as Dein is not a fan of Big Sam.
Spanish defender Cesar Arzo will move to Reading for £3.5m
Micah Richards nor Curtis Davies will be moving 2 AFC as AFC already have Matthew Connolly as 4 Hoyte he has just signed a new contract with AFC so he's not moving any where . Expect AFC 2 sign a striker as AFC have lost Aliadire and Baptist, might be Michael Owen as he's only 9m and he's fully fit, Traore 2 go out on loan probaly Sunderland .

Everyone talks to their hairdresser! Mine is in Mayfair and he looks after some interesting and well known clients. He is a liflong Spurs supporter and has been told by a current player that Chimbonda is leaving once Chelsaea are forced to up their offer. The Portugeses right back Boswinga is a target to replace him. Lee Barnard is thought to be a good prospect and will come through to replace Mido. Taraabt is likely to come through as well, so a senior pro is sought as initial first choice on the left, probably Petrov for obvious reasons. He knows Berbatov, nobody else is chasing him and he would be the right age to have on a three year deal as other reserve team players come up. Terry Dixon expected to be the pick of the bunch and will probably start in Carling Cup games next season. Also Dag Olsen and Dervitte look to have the right stuff. Not all rumours are about million pound deals. Every star came through from someones reserve or youth side!
The player says Liverpool are Spurs main targets to knock from Champions League spot 'cos they have a poor network following the arrival of Rafa, an iffy development system, little money and they're too late getting into the market. Spurs management are laughing up their sleeves at the Gooners 'cos Henry and Wenger won't be there much longer.
Ok West Ham fans Jermaine Defoe will 100% be joining West Ham so plse plse do not boo him he may have left West Ham in the past but we all no he will defenently strenthen the squad
