Ugur Yildirim to sign from Heerenveen for £4.5m
Everton Rumours: Everton are trying to tie up another loan deal for Manuel Fernandes, the blues can't afford Benficas asking price as they feel they need to invest on getting a bigger squad for Europe. The blues are believed to have 20 million to spend this summer, as well as whatever they make from sales,
sales are likely to be-
James Beattie 3-4 Mill - Any club willing.
Richard wright- out of contract.
Andy van der Meyde- nominal fee/ free-Holland
Gary Naysmith- 1 mill- Rangers
Possibly Tim Cahill, Moyes is not happy that he is going off to the asian cup injured as something similar happened last year with the world cup but Moyes understood because it was a world cup, he doesn see the asian cup highly, its not really good playing against vietnam is it.
Expect some big clubs to monitor tiny tims situation, I am told Everton would start listening to offers in the region of 8 million. its not confirmed he will leave, it is possible tho.
Targets to bring in are-
CB- Ben Haim- bosman
LB- Leighton Baines 4 Mill or Paul Konchesky 1. 5
CM- Manuel Fernandes 1 year loan
Joey Barton 5.5 Mill
Kevin Nolan 5.5 Mill Mathieu Flamini-
Wingers- Kieran Richardson- 5 Mill
Matthew Etherington 2 Mill
Gilles Barnes 2.5 Mill
Strikers- David Nugent 5 Mill
Dean Ashton 10 mill
Darren Bent 12 mill
Watford want to sign the following
Jobi McAnuff-C. Palace
Just heard very strange rumour off a swap deal Joey Barton straight swap for Richardson let me know if any one heard this one cheers salford red
Ibrox gaffer Walter Smith is eyeing up a bid for Portsmouth CB Sol Campbell! Walter is also intrested in signing young polish keeper Lukasz Fabianski. Walter is hoping to add experience and young guns for his squad next season to tackle Celtic!
Rangers squad for next season :
Hutton Campbell Weir Naysmith
Thomson Ferguson Brown
Boyd McCulloch Beattie, J
Walter has been given big money by Sir David Murray to start the Ibrox revolution!
Sol Campbell is wanted by Newcastle, but the ex Arsenal defender is keen to stay at Portsmouth. Newcastle will turn their attention to Curtis Davies or Anton Ferdinand as well as Danny Gabbidon and Gareth Bale as they search for defenders.
Again, SAF will try to stick with his line-up only Saha will be sold. But this week after the lost to AC Milan flood of inquiries at Old Trafford regarding Heinze, Saha and Richardson. According to my source SAF is really in deep thoughts of selling Heinze and Richardson but for Saha it's almost a done deal with a Ligue 1 team and a EPL team as well. Torres and Hargreaves both won't come to Old Trafford due to their high asking prize SAF will use more or less 47 mil for several players (Nani, Huntelaar, Bale and Gudjohnson) possible are Micah Richards and De Rossi. I heard also that Rossi is asking Man United to extend his loan contract with a Serie A team. Regarding Ribery he is consulting already with his agents Frankie's first choice is Man United but his agent and advisers wants him to sign with Arsenal with French connections. Last words from my source that the Glazer's are very, very happy with the results for this years campaign and they promise SAF he have their full support and money is not the problem nor a issue. The Glazer's fancies a Man United dynasty for the coming season.
My two cents for Jose Mourinho; This guy (JM) is very much a cry baby! Be a man accept your failures and move on. Cristiano won his 3rd award by the way!
BTW, Nike is offering Freddy Adu to EPL/ SPL teams in exchange of more sponsorships (CASH) . SAF is hesitant because he has more young promising lads ahead of Freddy so Man United not sure about it.
Eduardo ratinho, new Brazilian right back currently starring at corinthians is set to move to Blackburn in an awesum 2.5 million deal
LOL LOL ok SHOOTER? don't trust me to be honest the broonie rumour is a bit boring now and since myself and most other people seem to know where he is going I will leave you in fantasy land? and you are right kingston is registered with Moscow but an agreement is already in place with Hearts which Rangers will take over hence Hearts paying moscow and Rangers paying Hearts for tax reasons heres a wee look at the spl champs starting 11 for next year.
Hutton Webster Weir Smith
Brown Fergie Kingston Thompson
51 and counting. . .
Nufc will make a move for 16 year old Danny Rose from Leeds as they need the money to save the club
To the bloke who said Bolton would sign Dean Ashton for 6 million is that some kind of sick joke?
Anyway a lot of rumours are the arrivals of 2 more Argentinians Javier Saviola and also Lionel Scaloni who was on loan last season and loved it here. They are both friends with Carlos Tevez from the international set up and both can arrive on frees and the wages will be no issue with eggys spending power.
Arsenal have agreed terms with Legia Warsaw for their goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.3 million euro.
personal terms to be agreed.
Darren Bent is once again wanted by West Ham, If bent is interested it would be in the region of £13 million. (expect West Ham to try and part ex the likes of Mullins, Harewood and Konchesky)
This deal could be good for all parties involved.
Arsenal will sign Craig Gordon from Hearts even though Jens Lehmann has extended his contract. Gordon will be given an opportunity to break into the first team next season, rather than simply act as back-up. Manuel Almunia will leave. Might hang around in the Premiership though. Somewhere like Aston Villa, Wigan or one of the newly-promoted teams beckons. Surprisingly, no additions will be made to Arsenal's defense, except for the more frequent appearances to be made by Armand Traore and Matthew Connolly. Senderos will be given one more season to prove himself. Djourou is safe. Arsenal's attacking options will once more be given a boost with the signings of Franck Ribery from Marseille and Arouna Kone from PSV. Ribery, if all goes to plan in training, will be first-choice right-sided midfielder next season, with Hleb as well being given one more season by Wenger to prove himself a worthy addition to the squad. Ljungberg will stay, and Walcott will make much more appearances, particularly in the Premiership. Arouna Kone will be utilised not only as a reserve striker but also as an attacking midfielder when Rosicky, Ribery etc. are injured. In the middle, Diaby will be pushing for a first-team place as Gilberto's replacement. No player will be signed to cover the impending departure of Flamini, expect Mark Randall instead to make some appearances. Up front, Baptista will leave, back to Real Madrid, Reyes will not return. Van Persie will remain first-choice alongside Henry.
Arsenal first-team next season (mid) :
Gordon, Eboue, Toure, Gallas, Clichy, Ribery, Fabregas, Diaby, Rosicky, van Persie, Henry.
Ribery will not join and Man United will bid Alves out of Arsene's price range. The hope is Arsene will have 30-35 million pounds to spend after Reyes leaves. Arsenal will sign Van Der Vart (9 Mil), Parker (Undisclosed), Kone (6mil), and longshot Diego for 10-15mil but he appears out of reach.
All from personal source BryGuy1541 (Best in the business)
Saviola is definatley interesting West Ham, He is on a free in the summer, Also whufc have agreed with Tevez and his owners to stay, the only discussions are the final price, MSI want $30 million us dollars (£16.8m) West Ham have offered £13.5 million
Man United Rumours
Coming from reliable resources. Saha is looking to go back to France so Man United will be looking to sign two strikers in summer. If Charlton gets relegated then there is a strong possibility that Man United will sign Darren Bent at around 10mil. Being long admirers of Tevez they will launch a bid for him as Tevez wants to win trophies and play in champions league which he will not experience at West Ham. Man u will be looking for a succesor to Giggs as he will only have a maximum of 2 years ahead of him they will sign Nani as they believe he will transform into a similar player as Ronaldo. They will not be chasing after Hargreaves anymore as Bayern want to much for him and Carrick has been in excellent form this season and they don't need Hargreaves. But they will be looking for a young centre midfielder that can be back-up to Scholes or Carrick they are going to look for this player in Spanish primera or serie a
outs= Saha, Richardson, O'Shea
ins= Bent, Tevez, Nani, centre midfielder

Sorry to disappoint the other Blade who's been playing Manager games on his Playstation. Old Colin won't be making any signings any time soon mate. Believe me, I know. The one you have nearly right is Billy Sharp. he would have joined his heroes last year, if not for the fact he won't play for you know who. But . Mr Warnock is already making contacts to start his television pundit career and won't be stopped by those who matter.
I hear Liverpool have enquired about ljungberg . though why we would want that crock with dodgy knees and no pace I don't understand . we already have Kewell to sit on the sidelines and cheerlead every season we don't need another one
Scott Flinders, Paul Furlong, Marc Bircham, Michael Morrison, and Leon Constatine are all on Kevin Blackwell's wishlist. Although it is unlikley he will sign them all he will be able to afford to. He will also loan Charlton Athletic's promising defender Jani Tanska.

The winger has also met the attention of Barcelona and Real Madrid and with a reported release fee Clause of £40million a bid of at least £20million would be expected.

Coventry Summer Signings
Lee Hendire will be joining Coventry on a pay as you play basis. He has to find a new club in the summer and wants to stay in the midlands.
Danny Nardiello is also close to agreeing terms with the Sky Blues with Adebola going the other way.
The only other deal done at the moment is a season loan for an Arsenal forward. This is NOT Theo Walcott as previously suggested but Rui Fonte the Portugese teenager. Wenger rates him highly but thinks he needs a season of competitive football before he can be considered for Aresenal
