Norwich City will sign Patrick Kisnorbo from Leicester in the Summer after their relegation to League One was confirmed, also coming in will be Martin Taylor and Cameron Jermome if Birmingham stay up along with Martin Paterson, Wes Hoolahan, Kevin Phillips, Rui Marquez, Ched Evans, Ryan Bertrand and Derek Riordan. It has also been rumoured that Paul Dickov is on his way to Carrow Road after a Bentley was spotted on several occasions in Norwich with the registration D1CKV.

Arsenal Football Club
The lastest news saying Wenger got only £25 million to spend is not true. According to very close and reliable source that amount put up is just make transfer opposition underestimate Arsenal's spending power. The real amount they have is a stAggering 80 million to spend
In: Klass Huntelaar – £21 million
Mark Milligan – Free
Robinho – £17 million
Jean Makoun – 10 mil
Lucio – 7 mil
There will not be any gk signings as Wenger is thought to be happy with both Almunia and fabianski. Barry will not be signed as Wenger is not favour of him.
Outs: Lehmann – Free
Senderos – 6 mil
Flamini – Free
Hleb – 12 mil
Eboue – 5 mil
Diaby – P/EX for kranjcar
Bendtner – 6 mil
Gilberto will not be leaving as Wenger sees him as a replacement for Flamini if he does not sign anyone. He is said to be frustrated with Bendtner playing style and Eboue poor final ball. Both will leave to add more transfer funds
>All of these rumours about Wenger. he has only once signed a player from our leaqgue (campbell) and that was because he was for free.
– – – – – –
Well, I suppose you're forgetting (and I do not blame you– they were atrocious) Francis Jeffers (£10 million) Richard Wright (£5 million), Mart Poom (a loan), William Gallas (Part exchange, how did you not remember this, ah yes it is because he cost you the title)
Get real, Chivu is not going to leave Inter for Arsenal, they are just about to win Serie A for the third time in a row.
I would not expect Wenger to buy English either (Johnson, Richards, Ashton), as he must be terrified of the consequences of his previous English signings. Unless of course, these new rules come in to implement 7 home players in a team. Then we will all see a very different and very weakened Arsenal
Liverpool are planning an absolutely massive raid on Rafa's former club.
He wants Miguel, Viecente, Silva and Canizares. He feels, due to Valencia's heavy financial problems, 35 million will be enough for the lot. Rafa thinks this is a bargain because at the beginning of the seasom, he wanted Silva and was willing to pay £25 million for him alone.
man united news
The most shocking transfer this Summer will be Ronaldiniho to United for £5 million + Pique. also incoming will be Huntalear (14 million) and Alves £15 million (rb). Manucho will also return from loan.
with the return of highly rated Brazilian twins and Foster no other players will come in for defense. Veloso and moutiniho will come in as cover for the midfield.
Scholes/Giggs will only play in Europe and games against big clubs. Fletcher will go for 8 MILLION to either Newcastle Sunderland Birmingham or Rangers.
SO next year United will play a 4 prong attack Ronldinho of the left, Ronaldo of the right, Rooney deep foward and huntalear up top. Tevez, Nani, park, manucho and moutiniho will all be rotated in this foward line while Anderson Carrick Hargreaves and veloso will complete for the 2 holding positions.
the Wigan pair will be bought but left at Wigan on loan with a callback Clause in the deals. if they are as succesful next season they will come in around Christmas time to help compete on all fronts.
right these in your diary then tick them of when they happen...
I think that gareth barry will join Arsenal for 11 millon + Senderos who might be a replacement for melburg
Giggsy will break Bobby Charlton's appearance record for Man United in the Champions League Final then he's off to Cardiff along with as yet 2undisclosed loanees, Aaron Ramsey will be going the other way, oh your so lucky to be having this kid, he's a gem. Watch him in the FA Cup Final he will be the star of the show.
Neil Eardley–Oldham Athletic–1 million
Erik Nevland–Fulham–3 million
Nicky Maynard–Crewe–2 million
Slvain Wbanks–Blake–Wolves–3.5 million
Peter Halmosi and Kristian Timar–Plymouth–4 million
Javier Saviola–Real Madrid–8 million
Danny Murphy–Fulham (Tottenham) –3.5 million
Richard Steerman–Leicester–2 million
Danny Guthrie–Liverpool–2 million
Mikel Alonso–Real Sociedad–swap
Sam Alladyce–Director of football
Jim Gannon (Stockport County) –assistant manager
Billionare (anyone but Gartside or that Japenese guy) –owner
El hadji Diouf–a Spanish or English club
Grzegorz Rasiak–Southampton (return)
Abdoulaye Meite–Lens–2 million
Ivan Campo–Real Sociedad–swap
Dani Braaten–Valengera–1.5 million
Phil Gartside (owner)
Gary Megson (manager)
Chris Evans (assistant manager)
8 years to build, eight months to destroy
Well we stayed in the championship
Expect not too many changes from Davey in the Summer – most of the money generated from the cup run will be put to "one side" for the new stand.
Strikers are his main priority. Leon will take over from Howard. Muller to be No. 1 Unless some one offers big money.
Also he is looking for a central defender (no names yet though.)
Brian Howard – Stoke £2 million
Paul Reid – permananet – Carlisle
Andy Johnson –Rotherham free
Nardiello back to Queens Park Rangers
Kim Christensen – released
Kayode Odejayi – Burnley £500 k
Kyle Letherton – released
Paterson – Scunthorpe £250 k
(davey has had him watched on 2 occasions)
Davey is looking for an experienced forward possibly Windass (if Hull get promoted)
Maynard – Crewe £300 (if paterson falls through)
Man United Rumours: After recent displays at centre back by Wes Brown he is obviously not a rb. Pique may go as he is not good enough. Sir Alex will try to buy a right back, likely to be Dani Alves or boswinga, although Brazilian twins Rafael and Fabio will get work permits this June and they play rb and lb. I think we will wait another year to assess the goalkeeping situation, VDS will be retiring soon but hopefully we can hold onto Foster. The midfield and forward situation will depend on the Premier League and the Champions League. If we win both our budget should be high enough to bring in some class, there will be no major departures, maybe a few youngsters sent out on loan but apart from that no major sellings. Veloso (10–16 million) may come in for Hargreaves/Carrick back up. I do not see palacios and Valencia coming as they are not good enough and overpriced. Up front we need a target man of a forward. Saha will leave as he is just an injury prone liability, bringing in Ashton from the Hammers would just be the same as Saha, not Premier League winning material and always injured. Huntelaar would just be live afonso Alves, great in the Dutch leagues but not in the Premier League. David Villa would not suit our style of play, more Liverpool's. I would love to see Berbatov come (25 million) or maybe benzema ( £20 million) either of which would be amazing signings, but do not forget manucho will be returning from loan so he should be good (hopefully). As far as Ronaldinho coming that would be great as AC Milan do not want him but I see it as highly unlikely as we have Rooney, Tevez, Ronaldo, Scholes, nani, Anderson etc. who all play in his positions. Pure speculation; Ibrahimovic (25 million) Maicon (10 million) Gattuso (15 million) Moutinho (8 million)./MM
Wembley Stadium could be announced as the venue for the final of the 2011 Champions League Final. Confirmation of this will come in November. The next two years are at Rome and Madrid respectively and UEFA want the final to return to England following the Premier League's successes in the competition. Holland is also vying to host the competition in that year while Austria and even Ireland are keen.
Philip Degen, Royston Drenthe, Gareth Barry, David Bentley and Sergio Kun Aguero will be the big names arriving at Anfield this Summer.
Ian Holloway will be sacked as Leicester City manager with Milan Mandaric set to appoint former Luton Boss Mike Newell for next season in League One.
Norwich City will be among the busiest clubs in the Summer transfer market with Roeder initiating a clear out now the season is at an end.
Darren Huckerby will be leaving with Gary Doherty and Mark Fotheringham signing new deals. All others out of contract (including the Jarvis brothers, Bally Smart and Andrew Cave Brown amongst a good 8/9 other fringe players) will be leaving.
A deal is nearly concluded with Motherwell for them to keep Simon Lappin and Matty Gilks is looking at moving on for regular first team football. Roeder believes young Declan Rudd is more than capable to sit on the bench. Lee Croft is believed to be interesting Stoke and Sheff United.
In the other direction, expect Marceo Rigters to arrive from Blackburn and Martin Taylor from Birmingham. Both are being negotiated and Roeder hopes to announce them soon after announcing Huckerby leaving to appease the Norwich fans.
Other targets include Leicester pair Ian Hume and Gareth McAuley but Ipswich is believed to be interested in McAuley. Rasiak is also believed to be the targeted replacement for Dion.
Tottenham will find it hard to hold onto dimitar Berbatov with AC Milan interested. when he does go in the Summer (because his agent is always in the press trying to get him a move) then Ramos will swoop onto his old team and sign Fabiano. also to come to the lane in the Summer will be capel, lucio, Bentley and (shock surprise) kanoute to make up four forwards to battle for competition up front (bent, Keane, fabiano and kanoute).
Manu have a budget of 50 million + any players sold and more money will come when we win the cl and the Premier League. Players coming In:
Defenders: Micah Richards £25 million as he can play across the back line. They are only going to buy him as they also have the brazzilian twins coming through.
Midfielders: Nani is staying so who ever said he's leaving he's not. We will be buying Joa motiniho and veloso. We will also may be buying the Wigan pair. If these palyers do come in then Fletcher will leqave but we will keep O'Shea as he is very versatille.
Strikers. Simple Alex Feruson knows he needs to buy a forward who can score 20 or more goals a season liek Torres so he will be buying huntaleer or Villa. This is because he has seen what Torres can do so he will go and buy Villa. However we may buy a cheap forward as we will be buying benzem, a next year when he leaves lyon. This will all happen.
Fc FC Barcelona are chasing Diego Capel and Dani Alues. Real Madrid to sign Huntelaar and Diego
I'm friends with someone who works at Leicester City and he says that Derby County are going to re–sign Matt Oakley and Steve Howard. They both still have a house in Derby and do not want to play in League 1. Perfect chance for Paul Jewell to re–sign 2 fan favourites.
Three of Liverpool's youth side, Nemeth, Pacheco and El Zhar, have been scouted by Plymouth, Barnsley and Stoke with the possibility of loan deals being mooted next season.
M. Richards – Man United – 25,000,000
Messi – Man United – 60 – 70 Mill
leScott – 10 mill
shorey – 4 mill
SWP – 12 mill
Sidwell – 4 mill
Barry 12 Million and Anton Ferdinhand
Downing – 12 Mill
doye – 4 milliom
Eto'o £22 million
Huntular 16 mil
Kaka 65 mill
Youlan – 12 mill
Nasri – £18 million
Mexes – 9 mill
Benzema – 35 Mill
Stoke City will try to sign Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes
4 major signings Vargas of Catania left back Barry defensive midfield Nasri? playmaker And Vicente left winger IN RAFA WE TRUST
Lucio – 29 – centre back – Bayern Munich
Mark Milligan – 22 – right back – Sydney FC
Miralem Pjanic – 18 – left wing/wide forward – Metz
Niko Kranjcar – 23 – right midfield – Portsmouth
Nuri Sahin – 19 – holding or attacking midfileder – Feyenoord
Nikos Karelis – 16 – forward – Ergotelis
Lucio is the much needed experienced defender Wenger talked of. Milligan comes in as cover for the outstanding Sagna. Pjanic (boy wonder) covers for Rosicky (expect to see Rosicky leave next season if injuries continue, with Keiren Gibbs fighting it out with Pjanic for the starting role). Kranjcar will replace Eboue as cover for Hleb (who's not leaving by the way. bye bye Eboue). Diaby will come into the first team as Flaminis replacement (shame to see him go), with Gilberto (one more season), Denilson, and new boys Miranda and Sahin being used as cover. expect to see 16 year old Nikos Karelis make 1 or 2 appearances in the carling cup, along our English boys Henri Lansbury and Mark Randall.
other possible tranfers (depending on how rediculous the prices are) are English Manchester City pair Michael Johnson and Micah Richards, Johnson being mroe probably, and long term target Robinho.
gooner numba 1
Arsene will sign lucio from Bayern Munich, maybe a bid for Robinho (10 million+ Gallas), I would like to see amauri or David Villa as Arsene doent think we need a forward and maybe a cheeky bid for Sergio aguero of about 30 or £25 million+ a player. Flamini leaves you might see yaya Toure as FC Barcelona are breaking down in team unity and everybody wants to leave.
. Amauri or Huntelaar
. Sergio Aguero–doubt it
. Yaya Toure
. MAYBE Bendtner

There is been strong rumours around Liverpool at the moment that thierry Henrys representives have been in negotiations with the reds for the past six weeks, and that when the Spanish season is over it will be announced. this comes from a very credible source within Anfield. apparently Wenger does not want him back, so his next choice is Anfield.
Afc Transfer news:
Ins (likely): Gattuso – Nominal Fee – Milan
Lucio – Nominal Fee – Bayern Munich
Ben Afra – 13.4 million – Lyon
Krancjar – 9.2 million – Portsmouth
Henry – Swap deal only – FC Barcelona
Robinho – £4 million + Gallas – Madrid
Villa – 12.7 million – Valencia
Loan Return: Vela – Loan return
Merida – Loan Return
Outs (Likely): Flamini – Free Transfer – Milan
Senderos – £5 million – Villa/Villareal/Newcastle
Lehmann – Free Transfer –?
Hoyte – £2.8 million – Wigan/Stoke/Sunderland
Eboue – 5–7 million – Portsmouth
Hleb – £12 million – Inter
Hleb – Swap w/Henry – Barcelona
Gallas – Swap w/Robinho – Mardid
Loans: Gilbert – Loan
Simpson – Loan
Fabregas and Gattuso with Diaby and Gilberto used as cover. Ben afra/kranjcar, Walcott, Rosicky and Vela on rotation on flanks. Forward line unlikely to change, but Henry may return to compensate Eduardo's injury, although highly unlikely.
Eboue's diversity may allow him to remain at the Emirates as back–up to Sagna, but Toure's recent starts down the right suggest his days are numbered. Song will continue in the middle as understudy to Gallas and Toure with Nordviedt being promoted. There is a possibility Lucio will replace Gallas, as Fabregas or Toure are made captain, but that will only be in a player swap and the sound of Gallas + cash for Robinho may tempt Madrid.
Almunia will remain as number 1 with fabianski being promoted to no. 2.
Randall, wiltshire, gibbs, gavin Hoyte, nordveidt, bazeratti and Merida will make appearances in carling cup and early Fa Cup before half are sent out on loan in January.
Bendtner will not be going anywhere.
Hearts will sign Colin Healy from Irish side Cork City. The former Celtic and Sunderland midfielder has agreed a one year deal with option of a further two years. He will join up with the Tynecastle outfit when the transfer window officially opens.
