Football Rumours Archive April 08 2009
Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
As far as rangers buy outs go,i won't hold my breath.
ferguson will leave in the summer due to the fact he disillusionment with the club,whether he retires or not is another story,but i have heard some rumblings that due to his families unwillingness to uproot he has attracted interest again from newcastle and also sunderland.
McGregor is unlikely to be pushed out the door from what i have heard,but if a bid in the £5/6 mil mark rangers will bite the prospective buyers hand off for it.
this will be the case for any players at ibrox as long as the price is right,so whoever is bid on first will shape the rest of the sales and purchases.
if fergie leaves then i am pretty certain that boyd will take the huff and slap in a transfer request.
i have heard that we are looking to bring in warren feeney from cardiff but other than that in not hearing much else to be honest which is leading me to believe that a change in management is afoot maybe even the change in ownership that some have been shouting about(doubt it though)
I heard that Scott Brown is heading to Spurs in the summer in a deal involving Pavlachenko. Other definates are Duff from Newcastle, Dixon of Dundee Utd and a bid for Giovanni at Hull.
Sven Goren Eriksson is on his way to Sunderland to take over from Ricky Sbragia
if sbragia loses badly against Manchester United he will be sacked
Sven is being lined up to safe the Sunderland's season. .
To all those fans that saying that man utd will Benzema, this is highy unlikely. Man Utd are unlikely to go in for a striker as SAF feels the likes of Campbell, Welbeck, Manucho and even Macheda will battleing it for the 4th choice striker role at utd. If man utd fail to secure Tevez then expect the likes of Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal to pounce but the likely hood he is likely to go to Spain with Madrid or Barca the likely destination. If that is the case then utd will try and bring in Ashley Young from Villa as SAF was impressed how the lad played against them. United will offer a mere 15m for him
Just to touch on this whole gazprom rumour. .im pretty sure you can't own/have interest in 2 clubs who can meet in europe, or has that rule changed?
i remember when murray was interested in leeds some time ago he was rebuffed due to the fact rangers and leeds could meet in europe.
This would of course rule out gazprom, abramovich (who, just to remind you has his hands full at chelski) and anyone else who has an interest in another club at present
Im sure this is still the same and being a gers fan myself it would just be easier for all to accept that unless we lower the debt, or murray lowers his asking price, the best we can hope for is a board buyout with bain at the fore
Guys, please can we stop correcting 'True Blue' about his 'Ted Rogers' post. I think you have all got the wrong end of the stick with this one. Maybe he means that it's Ted Rogers from the 80's games show 321 and his trusty side kick Dusty Bin. lol.
Anyway, Man United will finally sign Tevez on a permanent deal and give him a more prominent role up front with Roomey. Berbatov will be avilable for transfer but only City will bid for him, and he will say 'no'. Feegie wants Benzema but he will stay at Lyon so Fergie will look at Dzeko or Owen. Ribery will be bid for if Ronaldo finally decided to chip off to Real Madrid, which will mean that schnieder arrives at United with a large bag of cash for Real too. Nani will either be sold to Inter or go on loan to Everton (if Moyes can get Jo playing football imagine what he could do with Nani). At the back, Fergie will get Lescott as he has worries over Rio's recent injured back. Devilish7
Fulham are planning bids for Scott Sinclair from Chelsea and El Zhar from Liverpool. Hodgson is looking for more pace on the flanks for next season as has singled out these 2 as the ones to do it. He will also make a loan bid for Gibson from Man Utd to provide cover and competition for Danny Murphy. I would also expect around 6/7 players to leave in the summer.
Big sam is planning a clearout this summer with McCarthy, Santa Cruz, Perderson and Tugay to leave. Sam's major target is Pablo Aimar and he wants to build the team around him, with Vaughan and Anichebe from Everton among his targets to play off him. Derbyshire will return and be given another chance out of the shadow of Santa Cruz and Ivanovic will join on loan from Chelsea. Mid table saftey next season I think.
Check your facts mate. Ted Rogers, the cable television billionaire who bought the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team along with the Sky Dome Stadium in Toronto, then changed the name to the Rogers Center, did in fact die late last year. Whats more his funeral service was held at St. Micheal's Roman Catholic Cathedral in Toronto.
Sorry, but this Mr. Rogers won't be riding in to save your team.

and premier league. Mr Murinho will be fill in.
Couple of rumours been floating my way about Liverpool's summer signings. The one that I can't see happening is a swap deal involving Aaron Lennon
& Ryan Babel. The one that piqued my interest as that we in for Juan Mata from Valencia. I must admit, I like what I've seen from this kid, and if Babel is on his way out, this one makes sense.
To true blue.
ted rogers is dead. . . i live in canada and it was big news here,as he owned the biggest tv/cellphone/internet company and was owner of the toronto blue jays.
if you don't believe try googling his name and you will find the facts.
sorry to sadden your day,but being a true blue you will be used to that
With RVP, Ade and cesc all stating in the press that arsenal need to start winning some silverware, regardless of how this season ends up there will be activity come the summer to keep all parties happy and make arsenal a force in the prem once more. Gallas has been sounded out by Juventus and the player is keen to play in Serie A, this will lead to the introduction of Sakho of PSG. Sagna and Clichy are going nowhere despite reports suggesting otherwise. Senderos will be leaving and that may end up being part of the PSG deal for Sakho. In midfield Song and Denilson will leave, Song will move to France possibly Bordeaux and Denilson is off to Italy. In coming will be Matuidi from St Ettiene and a more central role for Nasri. Adebayor WILL leave come the summer along with Bendtner (thank christ). Incoming will be Dzeko from Wolfsburg who has been scouted by the gooners for a few seasons and is really coming into prominence now for both club and country. Also there will be one for the future, either Diogo from Olympiakos or Piatti from Almeira. Both are well regarded withtin there clubs and will require a hefty bid to prize them away. Also any talk of Henry joining is ridiculous and the player will continue in spain for another season or two then possibly go back to france for a season before retiring.
I have heard from a season ticket holder mate of mine who goes to watch man champion utd that SAF is getting tired of the niggling injures that Rio keeps getting,if a decent offer comes in he will be prepered to let him go and then bring in either lescot or wheater and he will use cathcart has backup cause he has been doing very well in a struggling plymouth side.plus i don't think there won't be to much acctivity in the market ,part from Rio only Ronaldo and/or Nani will go
Liverpool owners may sell their stake to the kuwait fr around 450 mil
this will allow benitez.s transfer target list upgrade
now he is targeting
raul albiol if agger leaves
a lb dunno who yet santon from inter i hope– 12 mil
garerth barry fr 14mil
arron lennon maybe fr 14 mil as he did sign a new contract
wingers tragetd– david silva fr 20 mil only
strikers targetd– lukas podolski, bojan krkic,samuel eto
sergio aguero and villa are too expensive
Why does everyone keep saying Aaron Lennon is going to liverpool, he is no where good enough for liverpool, in fact i believe that he has mugged tottenham off by signing a big money ccontrat. He is not very good at all, barely prem class. He is fast and has nothing else to his game. When was the last time anyone seen him actually cross a ball. If you want fast, sign Usain Bolt.
One story doing it's rounds there is a Russian connection as well,this connection is through Advocaat he still has a great love of Rangers,and his friendship with Sir David Murray is well known,he has business associates who are reportedly interested in a deal to buy out Rangers,Gazprom who sponsor St. Zenit have been mentioned,Abramovich is supposed to be involved as he has already met Murray in Scotland on his yacht and at Murray's chateau in S.France,wait and see.
Dear god, is that wishful thinking or what?! Absolute poppycock. There will not be anyone buying Rangers, this summer or any summer. The level of debt is so immense, and Rangers and some of their fanbase being nothing short of an embarrasment in Europe, what possible appeal is there to buying them?
Anyhoo, Celtic to finally sign a proper left back in the summer, with one of Marek Cech from West Brom or Pogatetz from Middlesborough being brought in. Also being targeted are Damien Duff as replacement for McGeady, and Fletcher of Hibs, which everyone knows.
Gareth Barry – Aston Villa – 13 Million
Glen Johnson – Portsmouth – 9 Million
Sergio Aguero – Atletico Madrid – 20 Million + Babel
Aaron Lennon – Tottenham – 18 Million
Raul Albiol – Valencia – 7 Million
Babel– Atletico Madrid– Swap
Andrea Dossena – Juventus – 8 Million
Lucas Leiva – Arsenal – 12 – Million
Yes it has been mentioned before, but this canadian connection seems to hold up. Spoken to mate who's dad works in the ticket office for over 10 years. The takeover is imminent and should happen in July. If takeover doesn't happen, then the rumours are true that nobody significant will be joining the club and the worlds most winning club will be forced in to playing the products of murray park.
Just a wee word to praise the Gers for being swift in the punishment of the gruesome twosome. Other clubs (Celtic) Should follow suit and do the same to scotlands biggest idiot Artur Boruc. Just shows the difference in traditions at both clubs, but Strachan doesn't need to as his fans are making fools of themselves anyway as it is. lol, As for the person who refers to Scotlands most successful team as Rankers or the stadium as Ipox, this person typifies what is wrong with scotland today and his lack of intelligence mixed with obvious hatred and bigotry reflects extremely badly on the club he supposedly supports. If only he could take a step back and take a look at himself. .how embarrassing.
Tottenham are set to sign swindon defender sean morrison in the summer in a deal that could rise to over 2 million pounds they will face tough competition from everton to secure his services who are also keen on the 18 year old swindon centre back.
After his stunning strike V Aston Villa at the weekend, the proposed loan deal of Federico Macheda to ANYONE has been put on hold. Expect to see him feature heavily in the up and coming Champions League ties V Porto. Sir Alex will then assess whether he NEEDS to go out on loan, or is already good enough for a permanent start in the Man Utd first team. .at the expense of Berbatov who is being "hawked" throughout Europe! " Iain the Know"
QPR are set to demote/ Sack Sousa so you can expect them to move for Roy Keane. The Players that Keaneo will buy is Jon Greening from West Brom, he will try and get Macheda on loan from man utd, also expect Keane to put in a cheeky bid for Michael Mancienne from Chelsea. He will also try his luck and sign Mcgregor from Rangers (thats if the wage package is right for him). But this is probably the shocker. . QPR will try and Buy Fredy Adu purely for marketing reasons and Keane and Flavio will try and get a pre–season friendly against AC Milan.
