Mancini to get the sack after failing to qualify for the CL. Expect a player clearout also. City will spend like they did last year but will lose huge on players sold as the inflated market of last year is not going to happen again.

Rumour has it that Rangers' potential buyer is considering pulling out due to the number of key players that could potentially leave in the summer and Ellis is not willing to allow more than a 10 million transfer budget. The players in question include Boyd, McGregor, Bougherra, Davis, Wilson, Weir, Papac, Miller and Lafferty, with at least 6 of these players (Boyd, Wilson, Bougherra, McGregor, Weir and Papac) certain to leave in addition to fringe players like Steven Smith and Andreas Velicka who are actively seeking moves away from the club. It is thought that losing important players would greatly affect the possibility of silverware owing to lack of quality and squad depth and therefore Ellis now believes investment into the club is too much of a risk to take.

 

05 May 2010 22:25:20
Arsenal will sign Hugo Lloris, Brede Hangeland, Yaya Toure and Maroune Chamakh in the summer whilst mikeal silvestre, Philipe Senderos, Lukasz Fabianski and Edaurdo will leave

Knickerdropperglory here

Norwich are looking to bolster their strikeforce for next season. Spurs will buy Chris Martin for £3m, payment will come in the form of Adel Taarabt plus £1m. Martin's replacement will be Anthony Stokes from Hibs for £1m.

Jamie Cureton will be released, however Lee Hughes will be brought in as cover from Notts County.

Fraser Forster will return on loan from Newcastle in goal for Norwich. Forster will compete with David Crawford, who will sign from Alloa Athletic, for the number one jersey next term.

This is all the information I have at the moment.

I have heard that ellis will have control of glasgow rangers by 15th may and will offer mr smith a £10m transfer kitty which will mostly be used on contract renewals depending who leaves and as rangers will be bought there will be no need to sell unless the player wants to leave . i do believe as rangers are short onsquad players i think 2 defenders are reuired and a decent winger with a bit of trickery . also boyd to stay 50/50 he was told at january when offered deal that if a offer came in for him he would be sold .

 

05 May 2010 21:27:19

or
Danny Coyne set to be released by Middlesbrough at the end of the season.

Tommy Spurr
Mkandawire

Dont know if anybody has written in about Rafa's missus. It was on the local footy show in Dubai via an email from a viewer that Rafa's missus has failed to renew her membership of some posh golf club, think it started with a "B" can't recall the name. A sign that Rafa is due to up sticks at the end of the season?

05 May 2010 20:46:16
The manager merrygoround will begin after the La Liga season. If Real do not win the league then Pellegrini will be sacked. Mourinho will be the number 1 target and will make the move to Spain. Inter will hire Rafa Benitez. Juventus will appoint Bernd Schuster. Liverpool will be in for Van Basten. These are all top targets and all hinge on Mourinho. If he decides to stay in Italy then Juve will bring in Rafa and Liverpool will choose between Schuster and Van Basten.

Paul Lambert of Norwich City is looking too bolster his League One Championship winning team with mainly attackers. He is very interested in Sheffield Wednesdays Jermaine Johnson, and Crystal Palace Darren Ambrose. Having spoken to both clubs already the news is that Wednesday will be happy to let Johnson go at the right price. On the table Lambert is thinking of offering 300k and the services of Luke Daley & Paul McVeigh for one season.

Palace however are not looking too sell Ambrose but Lambert may be given more funds by the board in order to try and lure them too sell.

Others on his shortlist are: Ian Harte, Vincent Pericard, Adam Le Fondre, & Stwarz Katortion of Wisla Krakow and Freddie Eastwood.

Should some of these deals go through, to enable this, on the way out will be Jamie Cureton, George Francomb, Anthony McNamee and Michael Rose & Stephen Elliots loan deals will not be made permanent.

However, top on Lamberts list is Fraser Forster but Newcastle feel he could be their Number 2 next year and unlikely too let him go.

I am not a Norwich fan but work near Colney and this is 100% the truth.

 

05 May 2010 20:26:12
I'm a Southampton fan and for all you guys who don't follow the Saints we have the best Chairman England and he is willing to spend £10 million this summer. £10 million in League One! This is why we are being linked with likes of Darren Ambrose, Neil Danns, Nicky Maynard, Gary Hooper, Brian Stocks..

Southampton FC Outs:
Wotton Plymouth
Perry Free
Pulis Free
Gillett Free
Murty Free
Ostemober Free

Lambert has said he's saying, Lallana is staying for a year but if we don't get promoted next year he said he will leave. Lee Barnard, Jose Fonte, Dean Hammond will not leave.

It's with great pleasure that I announce Derek Riordan will leave Hibernian this summer and join Barnsley.
Acido.

 

05 May 2010 19:50:16
This should hit the papers by the weekend;
MAN UTD wonder striker DANNY WELBECK will join FULHAM in a 12 month loan deal.

ROY HODGSON is a long term admirer of the player and see's WELBECK as a perfect strike partner/replacement to BOBBY ZAMORA and is discussing terms with Danny over the next few days.

This may upset Fergie Jr at PRESTON NORTH END who was also expecting to sign the player.

WELBECK see's this as an opportunity of playing in the prem with a manager like HODGSON as too good a chance to miss and will turn to the club to make his name.

If he does impress, a full transfer should be on offer before the end of the year.

 

05 May 2010 19:51:06
Any PNE Rumours Anyone Plz?

 

05 May 2010 19:30:44
Norwich City will look to bolster their attacking threat by signing Christoph Smartinez and Ricardo Laborde from the Columbian Categora Primera A league club Atltico Huila.

It is well known that Norwich have been scouting the Columbian league in order to find new talent, and it is thought a bid of £500,000 for the pair will be accepted from the club in the next week.

MAN UTD REAL DEALS
people talking rubbish, saying they are related to united in some way. i am, not joking.
berbatov out if reasonably priced higauin OR benzema
carrick out replaced by modric OR milner and jack rodwell
if valencia decrease the price of silva to no more the 20 mil then could be worth a deal.
and the all important defencive midfielder maybe angel di maria
we need a right back but SAF believes rafael will develop into a superstar and no transfer.

 

05 May 2010 19:15:32
Ian harte will join his former club leeds united has been seen at thorpe arch

 

05 May 2010 19:18:52
Saints and Norwich fans are you serious. In fact, is there anyone you are not going to sign. ideas above your station spring to mind.

Whilst I cannot definitively say that Mark Yeates will not be loaned out, I really don't think this is even a remote possibility. Why on earth would SUFC loan out a player who scored and made two assists in the last match of the season.

Wake up and smell the coffee.

Notts county to replace luke rodgers whos off to usa with francis jeffers from sheff wed

 

05 May 2010 19:29:38
Who wrote this cack:

'Im a season ticket holder at everton and the word on the terreces is we're close to doing a double deal for el hadj diouf and Roberts. Rodwell will be on his way though with spurs willing to offer money upfront and robbie keane'

What utter rubbish. If you had ever been near GP you would know that Diouf would never be signed, he hates us we hate him as he's an ex red and a truly awful man, Roberts is not good enough, we have 4 strikers have just signed Joao Silva and look to be signing Beckford. As for Rodwell being swapped for Robbie Keane, I think you mean Pienaar, as that is what was reported in today's rags. Latest rumour is that Moyes is going to have a word with Donovan whilst at the world cup with the beeb.

05 May 2010 18:58:20
People keep posting ridiculous rumours that are blatantly obvious that it won't happen and untrue.
Liverpool FC Torres will not go to Chelsea for £70 million nor will Gerrard leave. There's been a lot of talk of Rafa going, but his agent insists that he's staying, so don't get your hopes up.
Chelsea FC. Not too many changes, depending on if they win the league. ( Obviously will ) so if they do, Ancolotti will probably keep more or less the same players. Maybe 2/3 to be added, to toughen up the squad for the champions league.
Man City Kaka will not be joining them even if they get the champions league spot, but expect them to spend big on world cup players and the crazy price tags.
Arsenal FC Chamakh FREE. He talked about it openly so that's a done deal. Expect Wenger to get 2/3 players max. depending on who leaves. The only uncertainty is Gallas as he has not signed a new contract. Arshavin will NOT leave, he said that he'll show the arsenal fans his best next season, so that clearly shows he's staying. Eduardo will NOT leave too. And nor will Fabregas to Barca nor Clichy.

Seriously before people start posting crazy stupid stuff like Wenger is going to buy 6/7 players. Its obvious he wont. He has never done it and never will ! I got all my info. Mainly through the clubs websites and their links and what the managers hint. What Magazines say its totally false most of the time.

No.1 Gooner.

 

05 May 2010 19:11:10

Cardiff City want to sign Danny Fox, Jason Koumas, Waghorn and Michael Brown if they get promoted

 

05 May 2010 18:10:35
Rafael Benitez is said to want assurances over transfer budgets and structure of the club before deciding whether to stay or leave Liverpool. As a Liverpool fan, I would like him to stay as long as he has the support of the board and players. As a fan, I want to see the Liverpool of last season, where we were actually good to watch, this year Rafa has been too defensive and this will need to change if we want to be in the top four challenging for the league.

What Rafa has been told I hear is concentrate on attracting Bosman signings for now, whilst the ownership is up in the air where as Rafa wants to bid for players whose value will rise after the World Cup Van Der Vaart in particular. Benitez is looking to Dida (Milan) to replace the departing Diego Cavalieri (To Brazil or Portugal £4m). Rafa has also looked at Hamit Altintop(BayernRB/CM/RM), Kevin Kuranyi(SchalkeCF), Marko Pantelic(AjaxCF), and most exciting Joe Cole! A last ditch attempt was made for Maroune Chamakh, but he has agreed to join Arsenal. Leaving the club, if Rafa stays, are Albert Riera, Phillip Degen, Diego Cavalieri and Yossi Benayoun, raising £20m. Steven Gerrard will have a decision to make as to whether to join Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid, if a bid close to £50m is made! Fernando Torres will stay, but if another season like this occurs, he will leave for Italy.

 

05 May 2010 18:25:26
Burnley News:

Brian Laws will be sacked with in the next two weeks and will be replaced by Tony Mowbray.

Couple of Everton whispers.. Man city maybe interested in Arteta. Cant see this going any further with the bad blood generated through the lescott sale, also arteta has said he would like to repay everton's loyality when they stuck by him through his injury.
Also. Everton, Fulham and Birmingham have enquired about Andre Dede Ayew. Ghana U20 star has shone brightly for his club Marseille and U20 torny. Agents said that clubs wanted to tie up deal before World Cup as they fear he'll shine and value will go up.
Also. Pienaar has hinted he would like to stay with Everton.
Also. Fellaini looking to be fit for August

 

05 May 2010 18:28:39
Sheffield Wednesday are expected to loose alot of first team talent this campaign. Here are the nearly complete moves:

OUT:
Marcus Tudgay 750kBurnley
Lee Grant 1M QPR
Mark Beevers 750k Barnsley
Tommy Spurr 500k Sheff Utd
Jermaine johnson 500k Norwich

It has being established that the club will not be able to afford any incoming players because the club is putting all income into reducing the huge debt. The club has missed out on £3M tv money all championship clubs are to recieve and also the £1M parachute payments from WBA and newcastle.

 

05 May 2010 18:29:30

As a big Saints fan, I find some of the rumours posted on here over the top and laughable. As much as I would love to see the likes of Darren Ambrose join the club, why would any player capable of playing at a decent level drop down a league. The fact we are lucky enough to have a rich owner, does not mean we can attract any player we want.As for David Wheater, I do not think so.
I am not in the know, but I think we have a chance of signing Brian Stock, because a lot of his family live in Hampshire.

Burnley rumours ?

 

05 May 2010 17:16:40
Guys, get realistic about United. Have a little faith in SAF and realise that this was a year when SAF had to blood youngsters and decide on who to keep and who to sell for the next great team (something ive posted time and time again). SAF's interviews should make ppl realise that some players are gonna be leaving for sure. and given the fact that United have been signing unexpected players over the years its not going to be any big superstars this summer at OT, except maybe a striker

Outs Carrick, Berbatov, Foster (permanently), Owen (if a bid upwards of 4M were to arrive)
Obertan, Diouf, Welbeck, Fabio, De Laet (loan)

Ins Joe Cole (free), Hernandez, Smalling.. these are definitely happening. Apart from this, expect one striker and one creative midfielder one of Dzeko/Alexis Sanchez and one of Milner/Silva/Gourcuff (one of these will be the blockbuster signing). Apart from this, we will either get Akinfeev for a free in Jan or for a direct swap with Kuszczak now itself.

Forget about Kaka and the other hoopla. Kaka is too old and too expensive and simply not the kind of player United are going to be buying!!

To the idiot who said this.

Norwich defender Gary Doherty is out of contract in the summer and will move to Plymouth once it expires, he was going to move in Januray but decided he wanted to see out his Norwich contract first.

Gary Doherty was voted in the team of the season. He is only 30 years old which for a centre half is not bad. I'll admit he isn't the fastest but he has chipped in half a dozen goals this season, playing exclusively as a centre half and not a centre forward as he did in his earlier career.

Another point is that Gary has only played for Luton, Spurs and Norwich which would mean he has probably wouldn't move hundreds of miles to play for Plymouth. If he was to go look at maybe Peterborough or MK Dons.

I don't know anything about any possible investment but the owner of Asia Airways Tony Fernandes has popped up a lot in the past.

 

05 May 2010 16:58:48
Heard from a very reliable source within the emirates that carlos vela will either be joining fulham or bolton on loan in the summer. partly because eduardo won't be leaving and the fact that chamakh has just confirmed he will be joining the emirates, meaning vela will probably get no playing time at all, all season unless a injury crysis accurs.
if your interesting in the chamakh confirmation he is a quote of him confirming his move to arsenal from an interview.

"I count the days, 11 short days. As time passes, it feels weird. I feel many emotions, " Chamakh told the French newspaper L'Equipe."I am delighted to join the English football atmosphere, it is something amazing. I love Arsenal's game. I know I will have to adapt but I know the short passing game."In February, I made my decision. A departure clause [in a potential new Bordeaux contract] was not logical after refusing Arsenal last summer."Chamakh has been with Bordeaux for a decade and helped them reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League."For my last matches with Bordeaux I can feel a lot of emotion, but I am leaving for a new challenge. At Bordeaux I was the club's child. In London, I won't be a kid anymore. I have grown, I have things to prove and I am motivated to achieve it."

 

05 May 2010 16:50:44
To the guy who wrote this shte


"Liverpool to sign 5 players in the summer: a left back, a left winger 2 strikers and shelvey included, plus a goalie if reina goes 2 barca. the signings will be left back belhadj from portsmouth £3mil, left winger pederson free transfer if contract not signed+babel loan, 2 strikers will be bojan and inzaghi for £7.5mil and £1mil each and the goalie will be 1 of the 2 young keepers from athletico madrid"

Are you serious man, very unlikey targets, why do we need bojan when we have pacheco, inzaghi is old! Perderson(he'd be on a bosman so why would we loan them Babel) Belhadj may come in with his fellow countryman Bougherra. I Just don't see Belhadj a first team LB at liverpool. Keepers Reina has just signed a six year deal, and don't expect him to be going anywhere, Cava is off tho, we are looking Dida as a back up as we need experience as we have a good few youth keepers.
Where did you get your information from?

Whoever put liverpool 2 sign inzahgi bojan belhadj and pedersen speaks rubbish inzahgi is 35 for god sake why would we want him? left back is between kolarov and taiwo and wot does rafa need pedersen for? if he does leave blackburn it will b to turkey some where or celtic. turan or mata are rafas top targets if he stays that is also coming in will be jovanovic c.cole maybe j.cole if we are lucky kolarov turan and shelvey why would reina go to barca he has just sighned a 6 year deal dumbo does that not mean anything to you?

 

05 May 2010 16:41:26
LFC NEWS too joker who thinks lfc may by another goalie if Reina leaves for Barca. Get a grip he has signed long term contract and is very happy in England and Liverpool.Some other LFC news have this on a whisper from T Henry girlfriend that Mr Henry is thinking over a move too Liverpool after world cup he wants last shot at Prem will be 2 year deal and does not matter who is charge he is seen too be icon so good for club.As i say its whisper and he will have serious amount of offers(money wise) from other clubs but LFC his PREFFERED DESTINATION

Regarding the Zarate/LFC rumour, the comment

"The biggest surprise will be the signing of Mauro Zarate. A clause in his contract has stated that since he has been left out of the team so often, he will be allowed to leave on a FREE. However he will demand a signing on fee of around 6mil"

I don't know how many games zarate has played this year but any "established" player who plays less than 10% of the competitive games his team plays is allowed to rip up his contract under FIFA rules.

In part its to stop restraint of trade whereby players in duispute with their club get left in the reserves.

First of all, who ever said that Welbeck is leaving Man Utd is sorely mistaken. SAF wants to mould him into becoming the new Wayne Rooney. Luka Modric will not join Man Utd this summer because SAF is looking to use the money from the Berbatov transfer to buy a new striker.
Higuain(2025)mil
Dzeko(1525)mil
Kaka is also looking like a huge possibility

 

05 May 2010 15:29:47
To all that are saying that Benzema will sign for us, NOT HAPPENING
Says He want to become a fixture at Real! Let him rot on the Bench there

Kaka is an unlikely buy as SAF won't meet Real's asking price should they sell!!
David Silva looks like he will shun Barca and Madrid as he want to play in England and has said he would like to play for United.(slim chance but we hope to get him)
Gourcuff should be the answer to our midfield crisis as he has talent and eye for goal with good passing the we are craving. Hamsik seems to be leaning to Inter(unfortunatly)
Podolski is simply a lost striker waiting for a chance to shine again on a big stage.

The Buys Should Read.

Ochoa 7.5 mil release clause (rotate with VDS until end of season)
Chiellini 25 mil (if we lose Vidic only 0.0000001% chance)
David Silva 25 mil (should the footballing GODS smile on us and Silva stays true to his word)
Gourcuff 17.5 mil release clause
Podolski 8 mil + Tosic

Sales:
Berbatov 18 mil AC/Munich (infuriatingly unreliable)
Carrick 13 mil Newcastle/(not showing that he deserves a team spot)
Foster 5 mil Birmingham
Owen 6 mil Villa


Transfers out = 42 mil
transfers in = 58 mil
Spending = 16 mil

Lineup for next season:

van der Sar(1)/Ochoa(12)

Rafael(21) _ Ferdinand(5)_ Vidic(15) Evra(3)

Fletcher(24)_/Hargreaves(4)

Nani(17)/Valencia(25) David Silva(7)
Gourcuff(14)

Podolski(20) Rooney(10)_
Subs:

Evans (23)_, Oshea(22)_, Brown (6)_, Neville(2)_, Scholes(18)_, Giggs(11)_, Anderson(8)_, Park(13), Hernandez(9), Obertan(26), Gibson (28)_

Smalling(31)_ and Macheda(27)_ don't have to be Registered as they are under 21
_ at the end signifies Home Grown Status(12 to Qualify for both EPL and CL)

 

05 May 2010 15:07:09

I work at Carrington training ground and the following rumours have been circulating amongst the other members of staff:

Berbatov is definately on the way out with Bayern Munich prepared to take him back to Germany in a deal involving Ribery moving the other way

Carrick may also move on with Hargreaves' return to fitness with Aston Villa ready to pounce should they lose either Milner or Young

Man Utd will turn down a huge offer from Real Madrid for Vidic

Micheal Owen will remain at the club and be released at the end of his contract next season if he doesn't prove his fitness and form

The club are looking to Brazil for their next batch of young talent

any more news I will post as soon as I know

Isnt it about time LFC fans stopped writing stupid things, how can you possibly know what is going to take place when..
1) no investment has been secured as yet.
2) noone knows who the manager will be next season.
3) players might no want to join LFC with no CL football and an uncertain future.

PLAYERS DO HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE WHICH CLUB THEY PLAY FOR!!

you seem to be claiming what players are doing before they undoubtly know themselves.

Real Madrid: Kaka, Metzelder, Drenthe, Lassana Diarra, Mahamadou Diarra OUT Carvalho, Maicon, Gerrard, Tevez IN Mourinho to take over as Manager Benzema will be offered to Man City as part of the Tevez transfer. Higuain will only be sold if a deal can be reached for David Silva (Valencia will have to lower their price considerably).

Aston Villa

Barcelona: Henry (to MLS) OUT Torres or Silva IN Very little else will happen at Camp Nou due to their failure to reach CL Final and their huge layout for Ibrahimovic last summer. The squad is big enough as it is. Arshavin rumours purely media speculation. There is no opening for him Iniesta, Xavi, Bojan, Pedro, Messi, Assulin etc. and why would Barca pay £20m+ for someone to become a squad player?

Mike Ashley will only change his wage structure for one player who he sees as the new Beardsley, Joe Cole. A chance to see Joe at centre stage where he wants to be even if it was for a season is enough for Ashley as he could then sell him, if needed, and make a profit. i know that this sounds like it should be on the joke of the day page but hey. also if Houghton can not cut it back in the Prem, Martin Jol will make his return to England!

ShoutE your man with the beads Seriously hope you are NOT a Newcastle fan, but if you are despite the fact he's just become the first Manager since KK to win you anything and that he's been at the club a year now, you still can't spell his name. Its Hughton not Houghton. And Joe Cole won't leave London unless it's for Man Utd Arsenal favourites to sign him should he rebuke Chelsea. Utd are his third choice, Spurs providing they get CL football.

Liverpool are lining up bids for 6 British players if they get funds from new investors. For the first team, it is just Alan Hutton (4.5mil) and Gary Cahill (14.5mil). For the reserce and youth team, they want Danny Wilson (2.5mil) Connor Wickham (3.5mil rising to 5mil) and a 7mil (rising to 10mil) move on Wigan duo James McCarthy and Victor moses but Liverpool are prepared to see the 2 of them remain at Wigan next season. Shelvey has already signed of course.

Also for the youth/reserve team, Benitez (who will stay as manager) wants Pablo Sarabia from Madrid who he can sign with a compensation package (approx 240k)

Benitez wants another 4 players for the first team:

Aleksandar Kolarov (12mil + Plessis)
Juan Mata (18mil)
Luis Fabiano (12mil)

The biggest surprise will be the signing of Mauro Zarate. A clause in his contract has stated that since he has been left out of the team so often, he will be allowed to leave on a FREE. However he will demand a signing on fee of around 6mil.

 

05 May 2010 11:46:35

I'm not goin to lie and say i know this will happen because I don't but what I do know is what I get told most of the time happens. Ok so firstly. If Jose leaves inter then he will be heading to real but only under conditions that he has full controll of his transfers. If accepted his main target is no other than stevie g who he tried to sign every transfer window for Chelsea, also had enquired about signing during his time at inter but gerrard made it clear Italy was a no go. Don't know if gerrard would go BUT if he does then where does that leave liverpool?? Reina. Remember gerrard stating reina will make a great team captin then pepe signing a new contract. Torres. Don't know if it's true but the opration could of waited til after the world cup but after bein taken off he spat his dummy out and demanded it be done as soon as. Which would leave him fully fit for the WC and then fully fit to join his new team(barca). Rafa. Would he have any say in these two happining?? I don't know. But if the board do sell his best talents and with juve already interested and with Jose leaving an opening at inter then Italy he will go.
I'm not saying this is all true but things i have heard

What a load of rubbish this really is. Let's get this straight once and for all. When the season is over and decisions have been made regarding the ownership of the club, then and only then will the players futures be decided. There is no way that any of Liverpools stars will leave until the sale of the club is complete. The reason being that it devalues the club and any prospective buyer will want to make those decisions and not the outgoing owners. Please stop posting this total BS and pretending to be Liverpool fans, most of you are probably United supporters. Nothing will happen other than Bosman transfers till the sale is completed.

In addition to this to all of those saying Liverpool have no money to spend. Yes you are correct at the moment, but once again depending on the new owners this could change and the funds could be small or significant. Nobody knows yet. All I can say is that the sale will be complete before the end of the World Cup, the yanks would never have got a 6 month loan extension if that was the case and that expires around the end of September.

Again if you are familiar with my posts then you will know that 90% of my rumours do actually happen. So write this down and look back at it if a September.

Right Rangers will find it difficult to hold onto some of their stars this year. A number of Premier League clubs are interested in striker Kris Boyd (Everton, Villa, Fulham, Stoke) John Fleck is also attracting attention from big EPL clubs like Liverpool, Man Utd and Arsenal. If Keane does not stay with Celtic then expect him to be a Spurs or Villa player next season.

Real Madrid are interested in Tevez and Barca will make a bid for Torres in the summer. However there's no need to panic Liverpool fans because I'm pretty sure El Nino will be at Anfield next season. If Barca fail to sign Torres then Guardiola will try and bring Robinhio to the Nou Camp. Benitez will stay at Anfield on 2 conditions, He will only stay on Merseyside if new owners come in and if they give him money. If given the money then expect some top Spanish players heading to Anfield.

To the person that said "Kevin Kuranyi has agreed a deal with Liverpool, following Milan Jovanovic deciding to play with Milan instead. Kuranyi has signed on a free contract worth 79k per week on a 4 year deal". That is not true. I know this for a fact. You are also wrong about Jovanovic going to Milan. The Serbian international said this about his move to Merseyside: "I opted to sign for Liverpool because they're one of the biggest teams around in Europe. They're definitely among the 10 biggest sides. I'm absolutely delighted that the deal is completed. From now on, I can focus on Standard Liege again. I want to leave the club in a good way." I hope that this settles any Jovanovic rumours.

:) :) :) Nottingham Forest Rumours :) :) :)

BD and ND have put their heads together and sorted in advance the moves Forest will make in the Summer. Much like Birmingham did last year, Forest will be investing in and making bids for the top performers in the Championship in order to increase the squad size, rather than just one or two marquee signings. Moves will be made for all these players regardless of how the playoffs go, although obviously if Forest don't get up then some of these will be out of reach.

Radoslaw Majewski Polonia Warsaw
Darren Pratley Swansea
Ashley Williams Swansea
Jack Hobbs Leicester
Gylfi Sigurdsson Reading
Peter Whittingham Cardiff
George Boyd Peterborough
Nicky Maynard Bristol City
Charlie Adam Blackpool
Charlie Austin Swindon

If Forest do get promoted, ND has promised BD the funds to go out and get these players, although there are no prices as obviously different clubs are in different situations and everything's negotiable, but a Premiership move would be too tempting for those 10. BD would likely not be satisfied by that however, and will want to make headlines with one or two if we're in the big time. This would most likely be Nicky Shorey when he returns to Aston Villa, although BD might give it a go even if Forest stay in the Championship.

There is about to be a transfer merry go round between Manchester United, Tottenham and Everton:
1. It has all started with United's interest in Luka Modric. Discussions are moving in the right direction with both parties looking at about 1820mil plus ben foster deal.
2.Spurs want to replace modric with pienaar.
3.Everton are looking at possible deal for Michael Carrick, (sale) and obertan(loan).Zoran tosic will move to colgne permanently on 7mil fee.
4.AC Milan are willing to pay upto 20mil for berbatov as they will have cash from the pato sale.
5.Saf will definitely recruit a striker which will be benzema/higuain/dzeko for around 25mil.
6.Danny welbeck is also involved in a move to spurs with a possible 5mil fee with harry redknapp looking to sell pavlyuchenko to everton.
7.Chelsea are actively pursuing aguero pato and thiago silva while are keeping a close eye on torres.
8.Barca and real madrid are on collision course for villa, silva, ribery. Barca may well bid for torres with bojan involved in the deal.

These are rumours and not all of this will happen but i can assure you that the united, spurs and everton merry go round is progressing.

Remember the name ezp

Mike Ashley will only change his wage structure for one player who he sees as the new Beardsley, Joe Cole. A chance to see Joe at centre stage where he wants to be even if it was for a season is enough for Ashley as he could then sell him, if needed, and make a profit. i know that this sounds like it should be on the joke of the day page but hey. also if Houghton can not cut it back in the Prem, Martin Jol will make his return to England!!!

Rafa other confrmed targets : Kolarof ( 12m ) , Mata ( 16m ) or Turan ( 14m ) , VDV ( 7m )

Gerrard and Torres and Mascherano will stay
Rafa will stay , he want to stay and the board don't want to sack him

No new owners b4 end of summer so ignore all the lies in media and no big transfers IN or OUT

Rafa problem not the owners or the money , Rafa know new owners will come 100% but he want to know what his budget exactly to move fast to conclude the free deals if he will have limited budget and he want to spend all the player sales this summer and NO , Torres and Gerrard sales not in Rafa mind so ignore all the lies and rumours , no truth in that , Babel ( or Yussi ) and Riera and Cavalieri and Degen will leave only

there is No 15 players IN and 15 OUT , 4 or 5 will leave and 6 or 7 at most will come

new contracts will signs in summer to Skrtel and Maschi and Carra , The New doctor will asses Aurelio condition and may be Liverpool will gave him another year ( Pay as you play ) as cover to LB and LW and CM

To the dreamer who wrote that the mags would get SWP, Keane & santa cruz. Good luck I hope you get them. Have a think about how you will feel at the start of next season when you have sold 2 of your 4 premiership players.

The only reason why Mourinho would come to EPL is his rude and arrogant personality.
He wants to show everyone he is the best manager in the world (which he propably is) and would want to make SAF blush by taking over Liverpool IF they really can invest heavily!

He also wants to hit out at Barca, so the Real Madrid option is pretty obvious.

Concidering his arrogant (genius) personality and his desire to return to EPL, why couldn't the Liverpool rumour be true?

Surely not coming to Liverpool if no huge invests are made.

Some Tottenham rumours:
No big changes coming as Redknapp has said.
If Keane will be sold, then another striker will be bought. Midfield is strong, and Sandro already coming nothing big coming.
1 top quality CB coming due to Woodgate and King being so injury prone.
Gary Cahill 13m

The price range and quality of the players depending on the champions league situation.
Top striker to come if we make it to Champions league.
Suarez 21m

I have seen a majority of manchester united rumours and by seeing all this and the comments made by Sir ALEX FERGUSON that his side just needs somt Teeaking here and there means that thei will at max 3 signings, according to me these can be:
!1) Goal Keeper It is mostly unlikely to sign Igor Akinfeev as his likely destination is chelsea because of high influence of Roman Abraomvich At CSKA
the GOAL KEEPER would be either of these two
Hugo Lloris:17 million or 5 million + Anderson
Adler: 12 million

SAF will not sign a RB as he has extended the contract of Neville by a year so that he can furnish the raw talent RAFAEL DA SILVA.

IN MIDFELD SAF is surely signing James Milner as he has the capability to play both as CM as well AS a winger which is what mostly appreciated by Red Devils

The last signing will be a striker and according to me it will be Klass Huntellar which will be a direct swap for Berbatov or 2 million + Berbatov But the latest interest is Higuain at 25 million to 30 million euro with first consideration od vidic next season

MANCHESTER UNITED FOREVER

05 May 2010 00:35:57
MUFC:

SAF has nothing to spend but realises the squad needs improving so will be looking to sell a number of players.

Carrick looks set to be moving on and might make the shift to Arsenal as AW likes his style of play. The fee would be around about £11 million. Tosic will definitely leave. Blackburn and Rangers are both interested in his services. £56 million would do the trick which prices Rangers out of the move. Neville, Scholes and Giggs have no intention of retiring. Foster will probably leave for West Ham, with Robert Green on the move, a £6 million move will probably be enough. Berbatov will probably be on his bike (finally) with AC Milan and Valencia both interested in a move which would cost them £1823 million. Owen and Brown might leave for £7 million and £8 million respectively. £61 million to spend now.

Dzeko and Benzema are being looked at as potential strikers. £17 million and £19 million respectively. Frey for £11 million, is a likely target, as is Defour for £8 million. A surprising target is Graeme Dorrans of WBA who SAF thinks will become better than Darren Fletcher. £6 million is the figure and expect these to happen.

The Trump Card

 

05 May 2010 00:34:06
Kevin Kuranyi has agreed a deal with Liverpool, following Milan Jovanovic deciding to play with Milan instead. Kuranyi has signed on a free contract worth 79k per week on a 4 year deal. As Fergie wants to buy younger players, Liverpool have become front runners to sign Joe Cole on a free as well. Cole is becoming frustrated at Chelsea and is ready to be part of the rebuilding process at Anfield. Although he is holding out for 120k at Chelsea, he is ready to accept 85k at Liverpool following their season of demise. Dida has also agreed to come to Liverpool after Cavalieri will be out at the end of the season. Cava has agreed a 5m deal with Benfica to become their new number one and Dida will become back up to Reina for free. Aleksandar Kolarov will also sign for Liverpool, as one of only two transfers that will cost anything. The Serbian will cost 14m. The other costing transfer arriving at Anfield will be Juan Mata, coming in for 18m. If Benayoun leaves, then Pablo Hernandez will come in for 15m
