Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
real madrid president ramon calderon has gone to france to speak to lyon president jean-michel aulas. he has asked about the possible signing of diarra. but as well as this, after seeing reyes say that he wants to stay at arsenal (thank god) he has surprisingly inquired about their brazilian striker fred. yet another striker. . . .
Expect Hatem Trabelsi to surprisingly join Man City, a medical is taking place and he looks set to sign. NUFC rumours are rubbish.
chelsea have launch the last 20mill pound bid for cole,A expect arsenal to agree the terms as they need to finalise before the champleague register. if they rejected this offer than sorry for u arsenal fans dont expect big names to come.
As an arsenal fan, I would really appreaciate"fans of arsenal"to post ridiculous comments on players coming in.Players like Mascherano,Abidal,Robinho, Baptista,Ribery,Malouda,Cassilas. etc.They are close to signing?? come on. .I know you all have high hopes but please say something which is possible.The REAL things that are happening is Arsenal could be signing Illiasu for 500k if he impresses, and "already" captured Barcelona's Fran Merida and the first signing Rosicky. Players that gone out on loan are Muamba,Gilbert,Larsson and Bendtner.So I guess things are sorted now. .
Arsenal have bid 8 million plus manuel almunia (permanent) plus abou diaby (season loan) to West Ham for their captain nigel reo coker. Arsene Wenger will also sign "a top keeper" but he is keeping it very quiet. It's obvious he needs a centre back and he has two top targets. They are Deportivo's Jorge Andrade and Real Zaragoza pablo millito. These deals will be funded when cole goes to chelsea and reyes goes to ral madrid. The only striker that will be signing is Robinho as he is similar to reyes. Baptista wont sign as adaboyor will play "the big man" role. Add to that van persie and henry and you've got a great strikeforce.
Gareth Southgate will finally make some serious moves in the transfer market. First of all, Stewart Downing will go to liverpool in exchange for harry kewell and cash. this cash wont be much(3-4 mill) as he is desperate to make a big name signing. This money will be used to get malbronque although this will happen very late, mabye even a deadline day move. They have bid for robert green and have offered bradley jones in exchange. He needs a centre back to replace himself and is interested in stephane henchoz as back up. Robert Huth will eventually sign when his injury clears up and geremi will return to the riverside.
in's: Martins(7m), Kuyt(7.5m), Bridge(3m), Trabelsi(free), SWP(loan-11m at the end of season), Upson(1.5m)
out's: Faye(1.5), Boumsong(3.5m), Babayaro(1.5m)
NUFC possible line-up:

i waz at the newcastle villerreal game yesterday in the platnium club and in the vip section a am sure i saw nichlos anelka i may be wrong but if it wasnt him it must have been a very good look a like
rafa benitez will sign Ibrahimovic on a season long loan because rafa thinks we need a strong and goalscoring striker, with view to a permanent deal worth about 19m if Zlatan plays well in the premierleague. this will leave us with 5 strikers including Pongolle who will be brought into the first team more. It is also Fowlers last season so expect another striker next summer(Torres, Defoe or Huntelaar).
Benitez will also sign a holding midfielder to replace Hamman, not sure who probably someone like Somoza(3m)because he is cheap and hard-working like Sissoko. Also dont be suprised by a 5-10m for Brazilian midfielder Anderson from Porto.
Rafa is still pursuing Alves(9.5m)and is battling it out with Seville for his signature and is ready to offer 2/3m + Dudek/Kromkamp for non other then Pascal Chimbonda, he will replace kromkamp but Finnan will still be first choice for his last season or two. Alves will play right wing with Pennant but will drop to right-back when Finnan leaves. this leaves room for another right midfielder. this winger will be young Paul Anderson from the youth team.
THIS IS HAPPENING!
where do u toon fans get your info from. Dean Ashton is going nowhere. he has said he is staying and so has alan pardew so keep dreaming.
West Ham may sign either james milner (permanent) or SWP (on Loan). Also Robert green to sign for £2.8 million.
My dad is friends with a director at Tottenham Hotspur and I can reveal that either Ryan Babel or Ben Arfa should be unveiled tomorrow. Now that Spurs do not want to sign Chimbonda Liverpool will apparently sign him and Spurs will sign Hatem Trabelsi instead.

NUFC NEWS: The striker Glenn Roeder has been looking at is not KUYT or MARTINS. Chairman Freddie Shepherd has been quoted recently as saying: "This is Newcastle and we're many things, but we're never boring so let's see what happens." This is because the actual striker GR wants to bring in is none other than ADRIANO! expect CRESPO or IBRAHIMOVIC to relace him at INTER.
get this straight. rosicky wont play on the wings. he will either start ahead of fabregas, or be on the bench instead of fabregas. hes a central midfielder. anyway arsenal will sign either ribery or wesley sniejder to give ljungerg competition.
MAN UTD NEWS! FACTS! Carrick was the obvious signing and no, now that he is injured Fergie won't panic buy, he's still just as shrewd as ever. It is likely that Senna will be coming this week but probably for slightly more than you'd expect (probably £8.5mill, as villareal wanted £10mill). After that Fergie claims to have possibly another player in mind. If he has his finger on the pulse this could be Tevez (Man Utd should still have a very large budget left after Glazer's promises and the refinancing). Tevez has clearly stated that he, relluctantly, has to leave Brazil and it's no secret that he favours Man Utd. Owen Hargreaves would be a sensational signing for the Reds but Fergie has made no indication of purchasing a third midfielder. However, Senna, at 30, is only a consolidation figure, whereas Hargreaves is still young. The fact of the matter is that Fergie is building a team that he can pass on to a new manager. With Foster, Simpson, Bardsley, Pique, Richardson, Fletcher, R.Jones, Lee Martin, Rooney, C.Ronaldo, Rooney and Rossi all under 21 and looking like promising internationals, he DOESNT NEED to splash the cash. Any player he buys is just in hope that he can win the league one more time before he retires. FACT!
jose reyes will go to madrid on wed.

and robinho or baptista for swap and some £
True Transfer news.
GK: GK situation is fine for now, Alumina will be sold to a Spanish side, Poom will take his spot as No:2 and Mannone will take Poom's place as No:3.
DF: AW is currently trying to convince A.Cole to stay, If he goes He will EITHER be sold to Madrid for 20m+Woodgate, No Robinho(Overrated as AW now knows), No Baptista(We have 5 CM, he is not needed) OR Sold to Chelsea for 25-30M or 15m+Gallas+Bridge. Ghanain trailist MAYBE be bought for 500k.
MF. Reyes WILL be sold to Real Madrid for no less than 20m(17m cash, what AFC paid for him, and buying out the add-ons Seville insisted upon concerning goals, apps & success) Ribery will be bought with this cash for 14-16m. Come january Gilberto maybe sold and his replacement will NOT be Mascherano(Overpriced and non-homegrown, AW needs more homegrown players) it will be EITHER Hargreaves OR Nolan(trust me).
ST: No one will be bought or sold but come January we will have a (like) new striker in Bendtner when he returns from loan at Birmingham.
AFC Team 06-07
I'm not going to front like some other people on this, I'll just say what I know. Mufc-
Senna is a fairly wrapped up deal anywhere between 3 to 5 million pounds. Tevez's agents met with man u staff yester day and they have offered tevez for 15 millon pounds. These are the wo likeliest summer transfers The club will make in addition to carfrick. However Alex ferguson is known to be interested in Owen hargreaves as he wans to maintain an english core, especially with the new stipulation on foreign players in the champions league(at least eight native players must be in the squad.)
United's budget was around £20m or £30m. Minus 19 for carrick plus £10m plus £16m ( mikel and ruud)means united actually have atleast £27m to spend. Minus the £20m to £25 for tevez and senna and united have made at least a £2m profit. if tevez does turn out to be £15m then united would have £7m to spend on a midfielder in the hargreaves mould. Ferguson is definitley on to something
Tevez o man utd on Friday
lets cut out all this nonsense arsenal runours. .the only player leaving arsenal is cole to chelsea possibly for gallas in exchange, if its an exchange or just for money expect eric abidal to come in from Lyon. Reyes is going nowhere as hes stated he wants to stay and Wenger will not sell him. Possibly see ghanian CB
man u to sign tevez from his club on tuesday.personal terms have bn already agreed.ribery claims the teams he wns to join knows it and that team is not arsenal.he has always shown interest in signing for man u and said that he anted to stay at marseille when christiano ronaldo was asked to stay by SAF.he now looks set to join man u after SAF showed him his plans for next season. trust me this is 100% true . . . . . . . . . .arsenal will sign appiah from his turkish clubto reinforce their midfield.tevez is on his way .
Reading are looking to add Romanian Mirel Radoi from Dinamo Bucharest. He plays in defence and midfield and would be useful cover at Reading.
for all those liverpool fans going on about Kraft. read the business section Kraft are in take over talks with a french firm which will cost them alot so Liverpool are off the radar. Parry and Moore have let us down even Villa can fine a billionare but not the Pool . .sad really

After seeing Rangers defensive problems on Saturday against Dundee United expect to see Monsieur Le Guen to act quickly to resolve these problems. .
He'll snap up Revelleire from Lyon on loan for the rest of the season, with the view to a permanent move.
Andy Webster will arrive from Hearts for £750,000. His proposed moves to Wigan, Blackburn etc are all subject of a UEFA finding, however Rangers will now just the queue for his signature due to the erractic form of new boy Karl Svensson.
Lee Martin will also sign up on loan from Man Utd, this will be a year long loan deal only as Fergie see's this guy with a bright future at Old Trafford.
Torres will be joining Arsenal but . . . . . . Not untill the Jan transfer window.
Real madrid will send Raul on loan to liverpool so he can rediscover his form. He barely reached 10 goals last season and some people say he is bored at real madrid and wants a new challenge. Benitez originally enquired about robinho but was offered raul instead. He jumped at the chance but a deal is being delayed until zlatan Ibrahimovic joins real madrid. Liverpool will have first option if real decide to sell but rafa is rumoured to be waiting for fernando torres to wind down his contract at atletico.
Everton will sign gravesen and saviola within the nxt 10 days.
