Well, good evening again, one and all, welcome to another evening of "who, from the German world cup squad is going where in the Premiership" on Football rumours.co.uk

Well, unfortunatly, I don't profess to being the cousin of the cleaner, who is the sister, of the bloke who once cleaned a United players alloy wheels on his Audi (do all United players have RS6's?) who was given confidential information into all of United's deepest, darkest transfer secrets. But, what I DO profess to being, is a long standing United fan who, is maybe, seeing a bit of light at the end of the tunnel, with what is quite obviously SERIOUS persuit of Wesley Sneijer, proving that maybe we do have some intent in the market. OK, well all know in our heart of hearts that it is not going to happen, but the fact that United realise that we need to have that sort of player, pulling strings and chipping in with the odd 10 15 goals a season (maybe if we have had that, we wouldn't of lost to Burnley, and we would of, fortuatously, won the premiership by 2 points last season but I digress!) is a very encouraging sign.

But, onto somthing less encouraging Owen Hargreaves. I see a small piece on skysports.com, that he WILL NOT be travelling to America on the pre season tour, as he is injured AGAIN, and S.A.F has been quoted as saying that he is out, and is unsure when he will be back, but he will definatly miss the start of the season.

It seems many on here predicted that he would of been the great hope, the missing bit of defence and midfield, like a new player, someone who can do those ugly ugly jobs that never get recognised, but are invaluble our "Claude Makelele" if you were, but alas, it looks like, as the great Frank Sinatra sang, "now, the end is here, and so i face, my final curtain.." it could be the end of a career, that never really began at O.T my my how Bayern's shoulders must be going up and down, at getting one over on the ol' enemy again

But, and its a big but, if he does come back from this, what we could use is someone who could do this kind of job well whilst Owen is recouperating and coming back to fitness, could fit into the cut and thrust of the premiership easily, that could be used spareingly in the event of Owen on his return to first team action to protect him from burning out to quickly as it will take along time to get up to speed, is available on a free transfer, and has a couple of good years in him as the role he plays, he dosent run round like a headless chicken.

And the player, dear fans, is .. GENNARO GATTUSO. Now, before you all spit your tea, coffee or beer out (or whatever your drinking at the time!) over the computer here is another reason this could actually be not a bad fit. Champions league football, highest level football, and a wife who is scottish manchester to glasgow isn't that undooable and he had expressed a desire to come back to Scotland. Yes yes, we all know hes now 33, but, he is still highly effective and could be helpfull in the recouperation of Hargreaves, by allowing him to make his own pace recovery. And I know we have some outstanding midfielders coming through, especially Gibson Carrick and Scholes rolled into one, but we have none that do what Hargreaves did.

We know it isn't going to happen, but, its an interesting one none the less!

Well thank you for reading, please feel free to comment or shoot down in flames as you see fit!!

Bristol Rovers have reached an agreement with a goalkeeper to join the club within the next few days.

I've heard Jonny Tuffey, Owain fon Williams, Paul Rachubka and Steve Mildenhall linked and although any of the first 3 would be great signings (permanently), I wouldn't want Mildenhall.

Any Bristol Rovers stato's know who it is definitely?

Editor I don't suppose you have heard anything?

Glasgow Rangers F.C Rumours

Rangers will complete a deal to sign Dundee United striker David Goodwillie for 1.5 Million and will bid for Mogaro Gomis from the same team IF Kevin Thomson moves to Middlesborough which is unlikely as Thomson wants to stay at Rangers or move to a higher standard English team.

 

08 Jul 2010 21:54:51
I guarantee all spurs fans that these players are the targets of tottenham. benzema, huntelaar, ibrahimovic, dzeko, scott parker, joe cole and micah richards . two of the strikers will be brought along with gudjohnsen on loan. i have heard that j.ohara is a target of liverpool, keane will go to villa and expect hutton, pavlychenko and jenas to go.

To the guy who posted that:

Liverpool News.

Liverpool will only sell Steven Gerrard or Fernando Torres if either puts in a written transfer request. This is due to the fact that Liverpool want to keep the fans happy and if fans can see their star players pushing through a transfer, it'll keep Roy Hodgson and the club as a whole on the fans side. However, according to my source who has NEVER failed me with Liverpool news, Steven Gerrard is willing to commit himself to Liverpool for at least one more season. He knows that last season Liverpool were poor but he also had an equally shocking season and feels that he owes it to the fans to make it up to them and drive the club forward next season. He will also be an influential figure in convincing Fernando Torres to stay. Hodgson has asked Gerrard, Carragher and Dalglish to sit around a table with him and Torres when Torres arrives back from the World Cup and discuss everything they would like to see to move forward and build for the future. As a Liverpool fan and because of my sources links to the club, I have no reason to feel anxious about Gerrard or Torres leaving as I am very confident they will stay.

On to transfers. .

Milan Jovanovic has finally completed his move to Liverpool on a free transfer and has signed a 3 year contract.
Hodgson wants to sign as many British players as possible. Joe Cole has been offered a 4 year contract worth £75,000 a week. He has had an offer from Arsenal and is waiting for one from Spurs before making a decision next week.
Shaun WrightPhillips is another target and despite whats been reported about Arsenal being favourites, he would prefer to stay in the North of England due to his family connections still in Manchester so he would favour a move to Liverpool. He has been made available for £6million and Hodgson rates him highly.
Ashley Young is a target but James Milner is not. Milner was lined up as a straight replacement for Steven Gerrard but not any longer as Gerrard will not leave unless he puts in a request.
Maynor Figueroa is NOT a target despite media reports. Emiliano Insua will stay but another left back will be signed, possibly Wayne Bridge as first choice. Endo and Honda are targets Hodgson wants if Lucas and Riera leave. Hodgson may even offer £6million and Riera to CSKA for Honda anyway.

Takeover.

Liverpool will receive the first round of bids for the club around the 15th July mark. This is what all of the talk regarding this date is about. This will give Liverpool the opportunity to open negotiations with the 3 interested parties and start to talk and study the clubs accounts. A takeover will happen before the end of September, possibly even before the transfer window closes depending on how swiftly things move.

Finally some sensible Liverpool rumour, now let's just hope its credible and that by the start of the season our beloved team will be able to complete to the highest level again. Finally Alou Diarra(Bordeaux) has been link with Liverpool and its ridiculous because he was one of our young talent, we let him go and now we will have to pay for him again, well done. Ed what do u think of that?

 

08 Jul 2010 22:02:17
West brom really struggling to bring in players and have been knocked back by at least 7 targets .

 

08 Jul 2010 22:02:41
Looking through seeing all the Liverpool fans and that hating the fact Joe Ledley has turned their club down to play for Celtic.
People saying he has not had medical hes just lookin around its at early stages.
Thats maybe what was said but its not true
This is his 3rd time up to Glasgow and yesterday he came to finalise everything and get it all sorted before going back to Wales tonight to sort out everything.
He HAS had part of his medical at Celtic done and he will leave Glasgow a Celtic player.

````````````````````````````````````

I'm a Liverpool fan but unless this guy (never seen him or heard of him until recently) is something special and I doubt he is otherwise L'pool / manu/ arse / che / spurs would all be looking at him then i'd be disappointed if we were shopping for players from that league.

 

08 Jul 2010 21:40:49
Man u to buy 2 more players but it could be another 2 if vidic leaves and to see how long hargreaves is injured for if his injury is serious senna, parker, cambriasso, , gilberto silva, melo, cattermole, the 2 diarras, frings will be on the shortlist to replace him.

 

08 Jul 2010 21:41:30
For the last time Joe Cole is Arsenal 100%

Ed, get back in the top four next year and stop the scum and Man stty pretending to be big clubs.

Now that Cardiff City have paid the tax bill expect the following signings at the CCS:

GOALKEEPER: Darren Keet (Trial)

DEFENCE Franck Quedrue, Craig Eastmond

MIDFIELD Nicky Butt, Salif Diao, Jay Spearing, Henri Lansbury (Loan)

FORWARDS Jay Simpson, Fabio Borini (Loan)

Players moving as part of the transfer of Adam Matthews to Arsenal. Arsenal are offering £2.5m plus Eastmond and Simpson.

Paid the tax bill ? Where'd that come from ? The tax debt has NOT been paid, hence the crap that Cardiff are in. Other than that, can you really see players of that calibre going to a club like Cardiff ? A club who cannot guarantee players wages and has a season ticket for winding up appearances at court. Bloody laughing stock.

 

08 Jul 2010 20:52:20
To the person who said..

Interesting one for Donny Rovers fans. Brian Stock is strongly rumoured to be joining the Saints. HOWEVER, John Ryan is insisting on Ricky Lambert coming the other way in a straight swap deal!!

Thats absolute rubbish, lambert would never join doncaster & is worth way more than stock anyway

Brian Stock is an international midfielder, Lambert scored goals at league 1 level. I'd say that Stocky is worth double what Lambert is.

Watford are looking into offering Wayne Rooneys younger brother John a 2 year deal.

He's available on a free transfer after failing to agree terms with macclesfield, watford are looking to write of the compensation with loaning a player out to the League 1 side.

Malky feels its a bit of a gamble but with minimum financial risk!!

He is training with a League one Club just check the BBC

Portuguese goalkeeper Eduardo has signed for Genoa in Italy so will not be signing for Arsenal so stop the rumours, more news out of Arsenal is that Sol Campbell is in talks with Sunderland so looks like a couple more signings for Arsenal at least before the season starts will be sad to see the big man leave he proved to be a reliable addition last season.

Some interesting goings on at the CG. Billy Davies has returned from his jollies in Dubai to find that his fellow Nottingham Forest transfer panel members have made no progress in the targets.

Nicky Shorey was due to sign but is now courting interest from Newcastle who may lose Enrique, arguably the best LB in the Championship last season.

Whittingham was also due to join, Cardiff had tried to get a p/ex with Earnshaw but could not afford the difference in valuations. Now though Whittingham has interest from no less than three lower Prem teams. Unlikely to see him in the Forest shirt next season.

Pratley was also widely expected to join. Swansea requested that the news be kept quiet but it is now apparent that other offers were being touted also and Pratley could be moving further south than the City Ground.

Vindaroy was a surprise target, the young Norwegian LB was seen as a prospective Left Winger by Billy Davies who flew out especially to see him play. However this is now also in doubt. Billy wanted Gareth Bale to play LW, however Harry Redknapp kept him at Spurs and played Bale there himself. Bale is now the subject of a lot of interest from other clubs and Harry is now looking to snatch Vindaroy from under Billy's nose and use him as the spurs LW next season.

Perch has already headed off, Cohen is very likely to follow him out of the door, but it is as yet unclear to where. Calderwood is keen to bring him to Newcastle too, but faces competition from other Premiership clubs.

Wilson is on his way too after agreeing a huge wage hike and the guarantee of European football. Also expected to go are Garner (loan) Adebola (who cares) and McGoldrick. McCleary too is being offered to lower division clubs.

With most of Forest's targets now looking to go elsewhere the pressure is on for the panel to replace those leaving.

The first target is England superstriker Emile Heskey who is available on a free. O'Neill is so keep to help Heskey find a new home he is even prepared to assist in paying a % of Heskey's wages for the first 6 months.

Zenden is also available and could well slot into Forest's inexperienced midfield. Talks are underway.

With the problem LB position still an issue it looks as if Spurr will finally join the Reds. Wednesday though are holding Forest to Ransom and a deal in excess of £2m is currently under discussion.

Finally the club are looking to strengthen at CH & to replace the outgoing Wilson. A Big Name player has been offered to Forest and due to his success last year is very open to offers. Expect Sol Campbell for a medical next week.

That's it for salad today
Vital Radish"

What a load of tosh Radish. If Forest were in such a bad position Billy would have resigned by now we all know how volatile he is and he is only with us until the Rangers job becomes vacant. Hopefully Rangers will keep current management until Billy gets us in the Prem.

Lets face it all that's happened so far is we've signed Raddy and sold Perch who was excess to requirements. the squad have only been back 3 days for pre season training and Billy too. Give them chane be patient we ILL get automatic promotion this season, Billy has had his clear teh air talks with ND and he has returned after his hols good enough for me.

Hi Ed, i can confirm Liverpool have held talks with Joe Cole but there first thoughts are he is being to greedy. Macca

 

08 Jul 2010 21:30:32
To this guy:

"Joe cole is in Manchester right now having a medical with united staff, look for this story breaking before 20:00 on sky etc, how do i know this? Can't say, but I'm on my way to Manchester right now for when the story breaks!

TICK TOCK TICK TOCK..after nine and still waiting for the story to break lol!!

Onto more interesting stuff.Arsene has come out and said he wants to strengthen the defense, I am hoping this means the rumours of Mertersacker and Cahill are true. Everyone should know the the first thing anyone knows about a transfer at the Emirates is when its announced on Arsenal.com. Personnally I would love to see Joe Cole, Ozil, Muller and Melo there but it simply won't happen..Arsene knows, trust in Arsene!!

 

08 Jul 2010 21:30:52

"West ham are interested in villas nathen delfouneso deal might hinge on whether matty upson goes the other way or decides to stay"

At most it would be a loan deal. We also have no interest in Upson, he would be behind Cueller, Dunne, Collins and Davies (if he stays). Delfouneso is the biggest English prospect at the moment. And he's at the European Champions Usomething in France (can't remember, think it's 19).

Shaun WrightPhillips is another target and despite whats been reported about Arsenal being favourites, he would prefer to stay in the North of England due to his family connections still in Manchester so he would favour a move to Liverpool. He has been made available for £6million and Hodgson rates him highly.
Ashley Young is a target but James Milner is not. Milner was lined up as a straight replacement for Steven Gerrard but not any longer as Gerrard will not leave unless he puts in a request.
Maynor Figueroa is NOT a target despite media reports. Emiliano Insua will stay but another left back will be signed, possibly Wayne Bridge as first choice. Endo and Honda are targets Hodgson wants if Lucas and Riera leave. Hodgson may even offer £6million and Riera to CSKA for Honda anyway.

Takeover.

Liverpool will receive the first round of bids for the club around the 15th July mark. This is what all of the talk regarding this date is about. This will give Liverpool the opportunity to open negotiations with the 3 interested parties and start to talk and study the clubs accounts. A takeover will happen before the end of September, possibly even before the transfer window closes depending on how swiftly things move.

To the person that said this:

Manchester United are looking to sign 4 players in this transfer window. A defensive midfielder, an attacking midfielder, a striker & a rightback.
For the defensive midfielder, they are looking at Sami Khedira of Germany & VfB Stuttgart or Lassana Diarra of France & Real Madrid. Khedira would cost about £13 million whereas Diarra would be around about £20 million.
As an attacking midfielder, the number one target is Wesley Sneijder of Holland & Internazionale but other options are Mesut Ozil of Germany & Werder Bremen or Yoann Gourcuff of France & Girondins de Bordeaux. Sneijder would cost a pricey £29 million with Ozil costing £22 million and Gourcuff costing just £18 million.
The most likely striker coming to Old Trafford is Karim Benzema of France & Real Madrid but they are also considering Luis Suarez of Uruguay & Ajax and also KlaasJan Huntelaar of Holland & AC Milan. Benzema would either be a loan move or a £25 million deal. Suarez would be about £25 million and Huntelaar would cost about £19 million.
The options at rightback are Phillipp Lahm of Germany & Bayern Munchen, Gregory van der Wiel of Holland & Ajax and possibly Sergio Ramos of Spain & Real Madrid, although he is very unlikely as he has previously stated he would not like to move to England. Lahm would cost about £21 million, van der Wiel would be about £14 million and Ramos would cost around £27 million.
All from credible sources within Old Trafford.

Stop Making It Up. SAF has already said he will only make 1 signing. Sneijder has told he wants to stay at milian. Van Der viel, Ramos, Lahm, Huntelaar, Suarez, Gourcuff, Ozil and Dirrara is all aload of rubbish so stop getting Unted Fans Hopes Up.
The only player which could possibly come is Benzema as a trade for Vidic. And if we r lucky, get chiellini as a replacement.

Plymouth to sign shinji okazaki for 750k plus add ons from shimizu s pulse, the only stumbling block is the exchange rate, as argyle are looking to pay in installments as they don't have the cash. Japanese press.

 

08 Jul 2010 19:41:35
I want to believe the £30.5 million for Sneijder but Sir Alex's top priority is to see what happens during preseason. I've said it before, that is where he will judge on whether to promote sack or keep the players. Barcelona hope to have their problems sorted out before Real Madrid make a bid for Patrice Evra. Liverpool remain quiet for now. Spurs could go for Podolski or Carlton Cole if available at the right price. What do YOU think?

CELTIC

it said on the radio an hour ago that celtic have signed joe ledley but ive checked SKY SPORTS/CELTIC WEBSITE and its not said anything . IS IT TRUE ?


Ledley was up having a medial this evening, he has not signed a contract yet but he is expected to sign within the next 24hours. Bullard also has not accepted any offer and I expect that one to drag on another few days (maybe a week). Sol Campbell is now talking to Sunderland so I doubt that 1 will happen at all. Heard the young european trialist we have is a good player and that Lennon is impressed but not so much with Boateng.

Pratley fee and terms agreed today. No info on fee.Should
be announced on Friday. Delay was from Swansea end
with Sousa leaving. Shorey won't be signing so Forest have turned their attention to a loan deal for a young premiership left back (Van Arnholt?). Also bids have been received for McGugan and Garner no idea if these have been refused or not. Also been told we'll be having a couple of trialists join up with us in Portugal no names given as Forest don't want any potential deal being hijacked.



Do you honestly expect us real Forest fans to believe this carp?

When are they announcing Prately`s signing, tomorrow, we`ve heard that rubbish all week, no disrespect, i will believe it when i see it on the OS and in the press!

ND and the AP ARE A DISGRACE and so are you for sending in carp, wait until its announced officially before you write rubbish, do you work for the club? if not who is your source or did you wake up with this info?

"08 Jul 2010 14:50:57
I reported on here over a month ago that Man Utd were interested in 2 players from Italy [Juve to be correct] and 1 [possibly 2 signings] from Spain. Both of the Juve deals appear to have stalled so Fergie has switched attention and will concentrate solely on another player plying his trade in Italy. The deal to bring one player over from Spain is still progressing although not sure yet whether it will be a loan [with option to buy] or a purchase [with possible player swap involved]. Deal for the second player from Spain is very complicated. However, if all deals go through Utd fans will be very excited. It will however, lead to 1 senior player leaving. Will remind all when deals are done and will name intended targets if deals not successful. THE SEAGULL"

I'm sorry SEAGULL but this stinks of Koptalk levels of bs. You've worded a rumour that contains no information other than pointing towards two of the largest leagues in the world and all the types of transfer exchange possible. If this weren't bad enough, you then go on to say you'll name the targets IF the deals are unsuccessful handily enough this will then be next to impossible to disprove unless a journo asks a specific question about every player under the sun, which we both know won't happen. No doubt if a player in Italy or Spain (nice of you to narrow it down) is linked soon then you can claim you knew all along. Thanks SEAGULL, but i'll file it away with MR MUFC's gems about Higuain going to Utd after he'd signed a contract extension with Madrid and the plumb who said City were looking at a number 9 at the WC in a preposterously vague manner only to later claim he was proven right after a hack said City might bid for Torres (now there was a secret that was well kept).

Look all over the internet folks. Sneijder said his heart is at Inter and Moratti said he wouldn't sell him.

Also, will people not linking Young to Liverpool? It would cost them more to get Young than they'd get from Mascherano. 20m is a joke. We don't have to sell so all of our players prices are on our terms, not other teams. We're moving forward, not backwards. No chance Young will leave and looks even less likely Milner will. It's City or he's staying because he wants City money but he also has a ton of respect for O'Neill and they have a strong bond together. City won't pay more than 24m for Milner and O'Neill won't go lower than 30m for one of our best.

Phil o"

This makes no sense! Your clearly implying that you are a journalist or something similar, if this is the case and as you say 'expect to see on Sky Sports before 20:00' why would you (or sky sports for that matter) not already have this printed someone say "Joe Cole expected to sign" and have the breaking story therefore I feel you are talking tosh! Im not saying he won't eventually end up at Man U but to imply that your racing up to a press conference and already know this just doesn't add up. As well as the fact that how often are players announced at 8pm at night?

Just heard that man u might be looking to buy boughy from rangers for 30mill so they can get rooney out of his back pocket ha ha

on a more serious note boughy won't be leaveing for less than 7mill. also the rumour that gattusso is back in glasgow is true but whether he re sings for gers is a totaly difrent story he is hear visiting family. hutton was the player that was ment to re sing for gers but as that lump of wood broadfoot is staying for 3 more years that scupperd the deal. smith from newcastle might sing and obertan was a non starter so he won't come other players that might be comeing in are conway gomis both from dundee utd gattusso is possible as he did say he wanted to play for rangers again and this is smiths last year as boss.


as for celtic rumours the likes keane bellamy campbell and so on will not be comeing Mcgreedy is on his way out and the best the celts can hope for is a cople of players from the championship joining not epl as the wage demands are far to high for celts and gers

MEMUT OZIL to sign for Manchester United or Arsenal this summer. After losing out on Wesley Sneijder it looks like Man Utd could be in pole position with the player already stating how attractive a club it would be to join. The draw to Arsenal would be that they have been chasing him prior to the World Cup, and that an approach is not simply based on one good tournament.
As an Arsenal fan i think he would be the marquee signing we are looking for to restore Fabregas' belief in the direction the team is going. Ozil is probably valued around £25.0mil to £30.0mil. It looks like we have been priced out of a move for Gregory Van Der Wiel with Ajax wanting £20.mil+ for the fullback, Bayern Munich look favourites to sign him.

Hopefully the Arsenal XI 10/11 team will look like;

..Adler
Sagna..Koscielny..Vermaelen..Clichy
..Song
Walcott.Fabregas.Nasri
..Ozil
..Van Persie

Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere to play key roles again this year.

AM:Wesley Sneijder £30m and mario balotelli combined £38m plus Anderson
RB:Micah Richards £7m right back is needed plus the fact he is available
GK:Igor Akinkveev £15m young keeper to replace vds who looks set to be retiring
CB:Gary cahill £15m to replace vidic
we won't sign a defensive midfielder because owen hargreaves is coming back from injury
Out:
Anderson to inter
Berbatov To Fc Koln £15m because there one and only lukas podolski will leave for city £30m
Vidic £30m to real madrid no swaps or stes this is happening no doubt in my mind why would we want that useless french prick Benzema

BOSS ARSENAL!
goonertalk.com Arsenal are closing in on Fulham 'keeper Mark Schwarzer after the Cottagers opened talks with Hull over bringing in Boaz Myhill as a replacement.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger wants a new firstchoice goalkeeper and sees the 37yearold former Middlesbrough shotstopper as the ideal replacement for the shaky Manuel Almunia.

Added to that, Arsenal scouts attended Fulham matches at the end of the Premier League season and Wenger has personally attended several of his games in South Africa.

Fulham have already accepted a £3.5 million offer from Arsenal after rejecting a previous £3 million bid, with The Goon Blog suggesting that the Aussie has already thrashed out personal terms and a medical at London Colney.

It is believed that the final chance to play Champions League football is seen as too great an opportunity to turn down for the experienced stopper.
Had 2 copy n paste dis info coz i believe it's true, an offer's been accepted, Mark Schwarzer can handle the pressure better Mr.mistakey alunmia even wenger said an accouncement will b made after the WC. Welcome to ARSENAL!

Harry Redknapp speaking of Keane going on loan to Celtic.

"I wouldn't think that's a possibility no, because we paid good money for him and to loan him out again, it wouldn't be a goer, " the Spurs manager said.

"If Robbie's not happy when the season starts and he's not playing then we'll sit down and discuss it.

"And if he wants to move someone will have to buy him but I'm hoping he comes back in to the team and makes a real impact."

Arsenal

Well arsenal have many emerging transfer targets but some of the rumours on this site are just ridiculous.

Now on to rumours

Gk Maybe Schwarzer or eduardo don't really mind either eduardo looked solid during world cup but aslong as almunia doesn't start i will be happy

Defence Koscienly(WHO WILL NOT BE STARTING) has just signed but wenger has said he is still on the hunt for another defender
Tasci, Vertonghen or maybe metersacker will sign. but Vertonghen is left footed and wenger likes to balance out his defence And i don't under why people keep saying cahil will sign don't see wenger buying him over priced and i don't think he is even on wenger list anymore. Would mind any of Tasci Vertonghen or Metersacker


Mid Wenger has talked about ozil and has apparently made a £20mil bid for him would fit in perfectly
Gourcuff is still a major possibility as wenger is an admirer he apparently has made a bid and the Bordeaux manager has said he might lose his prized possesion. maybe he will sign not saying anything definate but maybe. Also on the joe cole think he will not be signing don't know why we would need him injury prone not that good and too high wage demands don't see this happening probably going tottenham or liverpool maybe even man u (unlikely though). Overall Big Maybe on Ozil but a possibility on Gourcuff. Fab may not leave as well

Att No one not sure on hazard or assulin but we are getting welington silva and galindo so not sure anyone would come in. Chamackh only


So Ins
Eduardo, Schwarzer(maybe) 34 mil
KoscienlyDone
Ozil, Gourcuff(more likely) 20 22mil
Tasci, Metersacker, Vertonghen 10 12 mil
Chamackh Done

Realistic don't u think Ed?? {editor's note – hasn't Eduardo already signed for someone?}

To the Arsenal fans who think they are going to buy everyone if you sell Fabregas which is more than likely you will never get the 40 million pound that some of you are claiming on here. As for a replacement if you think that you will be able to sign Ozil a player who has excelled at this world cup for a fee a low as 20 million then you are all clearly deluded Barcelona will never pay the gooners all that money for Fabregas a player they stole of them you will be lucky to get 30 million and will have to shell out at least the same if not more for Ozil a player who clearly will be in demand after the world cup he has had!!



I'll have you know that Arsenal are justas , if not more able to sign Ozil or anyone else. We are just as good as United, Chelsea , Real, Barca. Yes we have had CB and GK problems but the rest of the team is more than able of destroying any team.

We have the money (no debt unlike some)One of the worlds best managers, not some gum chewing rudolph lookalike, who is deluded about Rooney being the best in the world when he is seriously overrated. On our day we are the best in the world at what we do

Ozil to Arsenal!!

Looks like someones jealous that MUFc have the best manager in the world ahah!
Also everyone on here is going mad about Kjaer signing for Wolfsburg hen i blatently posted it last week!
Plus United will Sign Akinfeev Or Lloris , Chiellini If Vidic Leaves , We Also Want Sam Khdira Or Ramires And More Likely Ramires , We will Sign Ozil And Sanchez and We Will buy 1 Of The Following:Balotelli, Benzema, Suarez, Podolski.
Also Evra Isnt going anywere and Will Finish His Career At MUFC

RE: Old firm.
The 'tic Gutted if Ledley signs as he's a quality player and great value on a free, sell on next year for a big profit, Bullard a possibility but likely that him and Cambell are using the old firm to get moves elsewhere, hopefully the same for Ledley
The Blue Dream Reckon there's truth in the Gattuso thing, Smith started him off, he said he'd come back one day, Smith's last year could tempt him and wife is Scottish and kid is half scottish (just the good half). There is definately money to spend or smith wouldn't have signed on, but we're playing cards close to chest as we need all the breaks possible, gone are the days when our financial woes were so public, that all you needed to do was bid a 100k and any of our players were yours. Best to forget the same old names Healy etc, a good winger and possibly Mark Reynolds if Bougy goes. Think he will. Like i said before, if we say he's goin nowhere we get a decent price for him and his value will never be higher after a decent world cup.

First of all can i just say to everyone that wants to know about celtic, they're signing everyone by the looks of things. now to the serious side of things, bougherra to newcastle for £6million? after the display he showed at the world cup(especially against england when he made wayne rooney invisable) hes said to be worth at least £10million and why would he go to newcastle when he could realisticly get a game at chelsea or liverpool or arsenal or even man utd. another thing i struggle to understand that he gets valued at a low price by premiership teams looking at him but the fact is if he played in the premiership he could easily bring in anything upto £20mil if he played the way he plays for rangers week in week out but because he plays in scotland for rangers (who are looked at as a second rate team on this website by all premiership fans along with celtic when in actual fact if they had the same amount as the teams in the premiership were getting every year they would easily challenge for the title) that it means he can be bought for a small fraction of his realistic price tag. another laughable suggestion is kevin thomson going to middlesborough for £2mil aswell as lee miller coming to rangers. first of all why in his right mind would be join a certain fat lazy striker in swaping champions league football and the chance to win trophies every year to play for a mediocre team in englands second flight playing the likes of leeds and burnley and bristol city? and to say hes worth £2mil aswell as giving us lee miller is really just paying £1.5mil for him. its a joke. it is true that gattuso is in glasgow and he has actually trained with rangers once or twice since he went back to italy BUT that's only because his wife was back over seeing family, gattuso has stated he would like to come back and play in glasgow but it is hugely unlikely that it will be this summer. now to the side of players coming into rangers. walter smith has £5mil to spend along with all money from outgoing payers and anyone who says otherwise it talking rubbish(new contracts and contract extensions are not included in the £5mil). georgie welcome who played at the world cup with honduras will be brought over so that walter and ally mcoist can have a proper look at him and a price tag of about £500,000 could see him come to ibrox. chris brunt could also come to rangers from west brom for between 2 and £3million. its rumoured that the lifelong rangers fan find the lure of champions league football very attractive. expect to see a few loan signings and free transfers to come in. no major players will leave unless a huge bid is put on the table. if anyone else has rangers rumours can we hear about them? here we go 3 in a row

"Are you Man U guys serious? Sneider and now I heard Balotelli.you think Rafa will sell to Fergie after the Heinze incident? Talk out of the right end of your body please."
Not a rumour, just a quote by SAF in 2008 regarding Ronaldo to Real Madrid.It just goes to show that the bottom line it's all about the money.

"Do you think I would enter into a contract with that mob?" Ferguson said after United's 53 win over Gamba Osaka at the Club World Cup. "No chance. I would not sell them a virus.

"That's a no, " Ferguson added. "There is absolutely no agreement at all between the clubs."

Managers don't really have much power if the money men tell them to sell.

Manchester United are looking to sign 4 players in this transfer window. A defensive midfielder, an attacking midfielder, a striker & a rightback.
For the defensive midfielder, they are looking at Sami Khedira of Germany & VfB Stuttgart or Lassana Diarra of France & Real Madrid. Khedira would cost about £13 million whereas Diarra would be around about £20 million.
As an attacking midfielder, the number one target is Wesley Sneijder of Holland & Internazionale but other options are Mesut Ozil of Germany & Werder Bremen or Yoann Gourcuff of France & Girondins de Bordeaux. Sneijder would cost a pricey £29 million with Ozil costing £22 million and Gourcuff costing just £18 million.
The most likely striker coming to Old Trafford is Karim Benzema of France & Real Madrid but they are also considering Luis Suarez of Uruguay & Ajax and also KlaasJan Huntelaar of Holland & AC Milan. Benzema would either be a loan move or a £25 million deal. Suarez would be about £25 million and Huntelaar would cost about £19 million.
The options at rightback are Phillipp Lahm of Germany & Bayern Munchen, Gregory van der Wiel of Holland & Ajax and possibly Sergio Ramos of Spain & Real Madrid, although he is very unlikely as he has previously stated he would not like to move to England. Lahm would cost about £21 million, van der Wiel would be about £14 million and Ramos would cost around £27 million.
All from credible sources within Old Trafford.
The Trump Card

Come on seriously?! they already signing 3 (i think) players hernandez, smalling and someone else i think. And you think they gonna sign 4 more with the prices your quoting? How many teams actually buy that many players of that amount?

Wesley Sneider will not come. He's chosen to stick with with Inter. Maybe Balotelli but city are richer than us and are very interested. It will come down to who offers better prospects for the boy.

It appears there is no Alexis Sanchez news any more? Is it a sign of deep negotiations going on or its totally dead?

Officials from both clubs are due in Florence on the weekend to meet with Fiorentina sports director Pantaleo Corvino and discuss terms for Zanetti.

To the editor, I don't know much about this guy, do you? Would this be a good signing? Thanks,

BLUENOSELUKE0121 {editor's note – to be honest I am not convinced by him, I don't think he is in the same class as his namesake Javier Zanetti for instance. I have never seen anything particularly outstanding about him at all, he is not a bad player, but he is not one of those with anything special about him.}

From SSN Sneijder; "My heart is in Milan. With Inter, I won everything last season and there's a lot more to win, like the European Super Cup, Italian Super Cup and the World Club Cup, which are all great trophies."

Sneijder is aware of Manchester United's interest, but Inter president Massimo Moratti told the Italian press on Wednesday that the midfielder, the joint topscorer at this summer's World Cup, was not for sale.

Dear God, please let that be the end of it!

Liverpool are not going to sign big players like milner and klose because we just don't have the money but we are looking at Japan duo Honda and Endo with a combined fee of 10 mill and riera going to Honda's parent club. Also Figeroa or Taiwo to fill our left back problems most likely Figeroa. and this is 100% true Hodgeson looking at Arda Turan and Bryan Ruiz but we will only sing one of these two players.

BREAKING NEWS

Sneijder has confirmed he will be staying at Inter next season as he wants to win more with the Italian side, he said

"My heart is in Milan, with Inter I won everything last season and there's still a lot more to win, like the European Super Cup, the Italian Super Cup and the Club World Club all nice trophies."

United on the other hand have made to bids for Balotelli and both were rejected, Moratti wants 33m but United are only willing to go to 25m, Moratti has told the Italian press that he wants Federico Macheda chucked in with the deal. Fergie will be reluctant to do this but maybe Berbatov plus 10m?

Ed things are picking up big time at the moment, United have made a huge bid for Sneijder and two bids for Balotelli, I guess the Ronaldo money has been there all along? This will close a few mouths if United did spend 5060m this summer. Ed can any of your sources clarify that United are going to spend big money this summer? {editor's note – I will see what I can find out over the weekend for you mate.}

I reported on here over a month ago that Man Utd were interested in 2 players from Italy [Juve to be correct] and 1 [possibly 2 signings] from Spain. Both of the Juve deals appear to have stalled so Fergie has switched attention and will concentrate solely on another player plying his trade in Italy. The deal to bring one player over from Spain is still progressing although not sure yet whether it will be a loan [with option to buy] or a purchase [with possible player swap involved]. Deal for the second player from Spain is very complicated. However, if all deals go through Utd fans will be very excited. It will however, lead to 1 senior player leaving. Will remind all when deals are done and will name intended targets if deals not successful. THE SEAGULL

ABSOLUTE 'CODSWALLOP' IF HE WAS TIPPED TO BE A STAR FOR THE FUTURE THEN WHY HAS LYON, MARSIELLE, PSG OR BORDEAUX NEVER BID FOR HIM? WHY HAS HE NEVER 'EVER' PLAYED FOR FRANCE IN THE SENIORS OR THE YOUTH? THE GUY IS 24 YEARS OLD, HE WAS HARDLY KNOWN AS A STAR FOR THE FURURE WAS HE, I DOUBT DIABY EVEN KNEW WHO HE WAS BEFORE WENGER BID FOR HIM!

HE MAY TURN OUT TO BE A CRACKING BUY, BUT TO SAY HE WAS KNOWN AS A FRENCH STAR FOR THE FUTURE IS JUST A LIE.

A guy posted a squad list earlier using the line 'I hope the arrangement for the number of arsenal players' followed by a list of squad numbers! I take it the dude is some foreign armchair fan by his poor use of language! Anyway, just to let proper Gooners aware that Diaby currently wears No.2 and would hardly be willing to take shirt No.13! The new, up to date squad numbers will not be officially announced until the new kit launch on July 29th. The No.10 shirt is now vacant following the departure of William Gallas, this is expected to be taken by Andrei Arshavin (for marketing purposes). He wore 23 in the past. Gael Clichy will NOT be sold. He may be offloaded next summer once Gibbs has broken through and proved himself, but Wenger will not risk changing both fullbacks, a keeper and a new partner for Vermaelen. Its that simple! If the Real deal for Maicon comes off then Inter favour Bacary Sagna, however this will be subject to the player agreeing personal terms and Arsenal accepting a bid (which would need to be a minimum £15m). Chamakh has been given the No.29 shirt and is unlikely to change to No.9 (Eduardo). There is also no foundation in the departure of Rosicky (No.7). It is doubtful that the Schwarzer deal will now go ahead. Wenger will not increase the offer from £3.5m and there have been complications evolving from the departure of Hodgson and the lack of a decision on Fulham's new manager) Almunia will stay with the club (meaning he retains No.1). Another keeper is likely to be brought in though and Fabianksi would be loaned out for a season (or sold if AFC can find a buyer). Joe Cole will not be signing for Arsenal. METRO newspaper ran a story today claiming AFC were favourites with a £115k offer on the table. The club would never pay that money for a player new to the club. It has taken Van Persie and Fabregas years to achieve the level they are at and that's still short of £115k!
The only players that will be vacating squad No's are Gallas (10), Silvestre (18), Senderos (6). Sol Campbell will be offered a 1yr deal and if Arshavin moves to No.10 then Sol will take his No.23 shirt again. For those giddy about Mesut Ozil yes he's a great player and one Wenger admires but the deal for Cesc looks doubtful this summer. Barcelona are having to look at refinancing loans at present and Arsenal will want cash up front (no installments). So far FCB's only official bid stands at £29m less than half the asking price. Barcelona are unlikely to meet this valuation and Wenger will turn down anything less than what he wants. This will also blow any offer they had planned for Torres (unless LFC accept Ibrahimovic as part of the deal). Serdar Tasci and Per Mertesacker are the two Bundesliga CB's favoured to be Vermaelen's first choice partner. Arsenal give away very little to the media, therefore most of what is printed is pure hype with no foundation. My sources come purely from official scouting reports and inside info.

Some interesting goings on at the CG. Billy Davies has returned from his jollies in Dubai to find that his fellow Nottingham Forest transfer panel members have made no progress in the targets.

Nicky Shorey was due to sign but is now courting interest from Newcastle who may lose Enrique, arguably the best LB in the Championship last season.

Whittingham was also due to join, Cardiff had tried to get a p/ex with Earnshaw but could not afford the difference in valuations. Now though Whittingham has interest from no less than three lower Prem teams. Unlikely to see him in the Forest shirt next season.

Pratley was also widely expected to join. Swansea requested that the news be kept quiet but it is now apparent that other offers were being touted also and Pratley could be moving further south than the City Ground.

Vindaroy was a surprise target, the young Norwegian LB was seen as a prospective Left Winger by Billy Davies who flew out especially to see him play. However this is now also in doubt. Billy wanted Gareth Bale to play LW, however Harry Redknapp kept him at Spurs and played Bale there himself. Bale is now the subject of a lot of interest from other clubs and Harry is now looking to snatch Vindaroy from under Billy's nose and use him as the spurs LW next season.

Perch has already headed off, Cohen is very likely to follow him out of the door, but it is as yet unclear to where. Calderwood is keen to bring him to Newcastle too, but faces competition from other Premiership clubs.

Wilson is on his way too after agreeing a huge wage hike and the guarantee of European football. Also expected to go are Garner (loan) Adebola (who cares) and McGoldrick. McCleary too is being offered to lower division clubs.

With most of Forest's targets now looking to go elsewhere the pressure is on for the panel to replace those leaving.

The first target is England superstriker Emile Heskey who is available on a free. O'Neill is so keep to help Heskey find a new home he is even prepared to assist in paying a % of Heskey's wages for the first 6 months.

Zenden is also available and could well slot into Forest's inexperienced midfield. Talks are underway.

With the problem LB position still an issue it looks as if Spurr will finally join the Reds. Wednesday though are holding Forest to Ransom and a deal in excess of £2m is currently under discussion.

Finally the club are looking to strengthen at CH & to replace the outgoing Wilson. A Big Name player has been offered to Forest and due to his success last year is very open to offers. Expect Sol Campbell for a medical next week.

That's it for salad today

Interesting one for Donny Rovers fans. Brian Stock is strongly rumoured to be joining the Saints. HOWEVER, John Ryan is insisting on Ricky Lambert coming the other way in a straight swap deal!!

Absolute rubbish. Brian Stock is not leaving Doncaster, I had a chat with him yesterday at the local friendly game and John Ryan. Simon Gillett was also there and his signing will be announced today. Stephen Caulker of Spurs who was on loan at Yeovil last season is to join on a season long loan. Jay EmmanualThomas and Jordan Mutch are also set to return on loan as long as they do not make their respective clubs first team squad. Andy Keogh is also set to join on a season long loan but with a view to a permanent deal.
There are a couple of other suprises being worked on but John is keeping those close to his chest as those deals are not as far along as the ones mentioned.

Do you really think Southampton will let Lambert go when he scored the most goals in the football league.
Wouldnt comleatly rule out Stock coming to saints but its unlikely

Liverpool Rumours,
With little to no money to spend im being told endlessly about the same rumours of Arda Turan who incidentally is a LFC fan and has stated on numerous occasions his desire to play for us, or Joe Cole(free) to replace Yossi Benayoun.
Nigel ReoCoker who under the right management could be a solid aquisition, Scott Parker & (Ex)Evertonian Dan Gosling(free) are all being touted as successors to Javier Mascherano, who has his heart dead set on the exit door.
Taye Taiwo who i know was a Rafa Benitez target, but he's still one of the most sought after leftback's around and high on our priorities or Maynor Figueroa, are looking the likliest to fill the void left by Fabio Aurelio(free).
Our very own Dean Bouzanis will be the man to replace the unsettled Diego Cavalieri as Pepe Reina's understudy.

Just had a call from my Man Utd contact They have made an official offer of £30.5 million for Wesley Sneijder today!! I really didn't think this would happen if i'm honest but he is very reliable! Vidic all but gone to Madrid & United after Benzema, Gary Cahill will come in to replace him & the offer of £9.6 million for Soritis Ninis was rejected & United have not yet gone back in with an improved offer.
Enquiries have been made re: Alexis Sanchez but nothing solid.

Also been advised that Jamie O'Hara will be off to Liverpool.
& Stephen Ireland is convinced he is signing for United

Thanks

This is a REAL fact. Will be official today:

Miroslav Klose is signing for Liverpool.
He's being paid 10m pounds for the transfer and his annual salary will be 8, 5 million. His shirt number will probably be 7.

No it wont! silly boy

damn! 8.5m annually
thats like 3m more than yaya toure will get at city
and i thought they were the team ruining football but it turns out its the club with debt no champions league football and in search for a new owner also 1 question is klose according to you would get 8.5m pa is torres and gerrard on 50m pa? Ha!

Miroslav Klose is signing for Liverpool.
He's being paid 10m pounds for the transfer and his annual salary will be 8, 5 million. His shirt number will probably be 7.

To the guy who posted this. you're dreaming lad. I'm a Liverpool supporter and I can't believe that the club is so financially stable that it can now afford to pay a 32 year old a signing on fee of £10million and then complement that with a weekly wage of £170,000. This is not PES or FIFA we're talking about now. Roy Hodgson is not a complete idiot and knows that his first signings will go a long way towards appeasing or alienating fans even before the season has started. I believe that although Klose is still a quality striker he would only be a backup to Torres. Whatever money Roy has will be used in the attempted recruitment of Figueroa (widely reported), Rene Krhin, possibly Arda Turan, a genuine quality striker (Bryan Ruiz who I reported 2 weeks ago) and a second choice goalkeeper. There may be other signings in the pipeline but these will depend on player sales. I do not expect any major moves to be made before the preseason tour as Roy will use this to evaluate fringe players/deadwood. The upshot of this will be the silver lining that the only signings will be quality something that has been lacking for a while.

PEOPLE ARE READING INTO THIS REAL MADRID MAICON SCENARIO WRONG, IF MAICON IS BROUGHT IN RAMOS WILL NOT BE SOLD, HE WILL BE MOVED INTO CENTRAL DEFENSE NEXT TO PEPE, HE IS A BETTER CENTRE BACK THAN HE IS A RIGHT BACK. ED IS THIS A PERFECT CASE OF JOURNALISTS MAKING UP STORIES? THEY SEE MAICON IS WANTED BY REAL SO THEY ASSUME RAMOS WILL BE SOLD? EVEN I KNOW HE IS A QUALITY CENTRE BACK.

Let's stop all this stupid rubbish about Gosling signing for anyone.
He signed a 3 year contract with Everton in 2008 so he is an Everton player until Jan 2011.
He hasn't walked out, he can hardly walk anywhere at the moment.
He is at present getting treatment for his injury at Everton, hardly the actions of a club who are about to lose the player??
Nobody but NOBODY signs a player who is still out from a cruciate ligament injury and not likely to be back in training for 3 months!

 

08 Jul 2010 13:32:37
Robbie Keane to Celtic.

Lets put this one to bed. Harry is open to offers and there is interest from the EPL. If no sale by the end of the window he will then go on loan and clearly Celtic are his preferred option. Its wait and see until August for Keano.

Campbell to Celtic.

My info would suggest no real hope of this happening his love of Arsenal and self belief in his ability makes this move unlikely he still thinks of an England future

Ledley Bullard Boateng. Everyone seems hyper about these three why? Two were in a struggling relegated team and one is unproven

not convinced weve got this right

To this Guy:
08 Jul 2010 10:15:30
I posted a few days ago regarding players I thought had excelled at the WC, but who I hadn't seen linked with any clubs.

The editor said Salcido was linked with Arsenal, which I confess I do not remember must have been preWC right?

But despite reading this site about three times a day, and looking at BBC Football Gossip and various other transfer sites, numerous other players I posted about have still to be linked with any club as far as I can tell.

I cannot understand why the world's best clubs are not bidding for Kwadwo Asamoah, who was strong, decent in the tackle, kept possession beautifully and has a wonderful rangey leftfooted pass. And I believe is what, 21? 22? I also thought his teammate Andre Ayew showed masses of promise.

cast your mind back over the years and think of all the players who came to the premier league on the back of a good world cup (half of the senegal team for a start) . im sure these players will be monitored more closely over the next 6 12 months to see if they are any good.

Hi, I am a Newcastle fan but live and work in Glasgow, I actually work in Glasgow airport and agree with the guy about gattuso, y is he back in
glasgow tho?.


i don't no if gattuso is back in glasgow or not but if he is he might be back because he has family that live in glasgow ?

and plus i am a rangers fan but can everyone stop saying we are signing big signings when we won't we havent got much money, we will sign a few players before the pre season starts but i wouldn't expect it to be big signings it could be the likes of lee miller from middlesborugh if we let them sign thomson for money plus player. the likes of david goodwillie i think every rangers fan should not expect him in the rangers team next season for one reason that is they will not spend 3 million on him. players that could depart are alan mcgregor there is rumours linking him with teams such as benfica, sporting lisbon, tottenham, newcastle and middlesborugh. strachan is trying to create an old firm team so i would say middlesborugh are favourites. other players that could leave ibrox are bougherra ( arsenal, tottenham ) lafferty ( wolves ) davis ( premier league teams ) mcculloch ( french team )

QUOTE "Well goodbye Gosling, well done Everton" UNQUOTE

Ha, ha, ha, ha all of a sudden this so called player who was part of the future of EFc(small c) along with other names we will no longer hear in a couple of seasons is now a traitor because he's seen the light and realised how tin pot this club is run. You expect these kind of admin cock up's at part time clubs with part time staff with part time ambitions. Don't know why i'm that surprised really. But it's truly shocking how the everton fans have turned on a player who has been treated in a disgusting way. if i were Rodwell i'd ask for a loan move to Portsmouth, at least they treat their players with a little more dignity. Everton and it's fans should be ashamed of themselves. No way to treat talented young footballers. I suspect Gosling could be scarred for life at the treatment dished at to him. Hang your heads in shame. Tut Tut Tut. Sir Bob the Red

NOTICED THAT GOSLING AND SAHA DID NOT GO ON TOUR TO AUSTRALIA. SAHA DID NOT GO AS THE 'club' HAD 'PASSPORT PROBLEMS'DID HE SIGN A CONTRACT EXTENSION? IF NOT, I THINK HE MAY BE ON HIS WAY AS WELL. BITTER BLUES SHOULD TAKE A LOOK AT THEIR CLUB AND SEE WHATS GOING ON AND NOT MAKE UP SICK STORIES AND LIES ABOUT THE BIG CLUB IN THE CITY. BUT I SUPPOSE THATS ALL THEY HAVE, CANT WIN ANYTHING SO LETS KNOCK AND MAKE BITTER LIES & STORIES ABOUT THE MOST SUCCESFUL TEAM IN THE HISTORY OF BRITISH FOOTBALL. SICK PUPPIES GET A LIFE

Alright Ed I've never posted on here, but I have read this site daily for the last few years, I saw today that you have replied to another post saying that the 15th of July date suggested for liverpools takeover is a date that has been plucked out of thin air, well I never know any rumours or sources and this is the site which keeps me informed of rumours, however around 3 weeks ago whilst visiting Chester I got talking to a man in a pub about Liverpool, during our conversation he told me he was a friend of the journalist (I can't remember his name) whom rafa gave his exclusive interview too when he left the club, he said that that week he had received a text from said journalist who told him that a takeover would be compleated on the 15th, let's be honest the guy could have faked the message sending a message from his own number to his own phone and changing the number, but never the less it is a rumour and the post you replied to is the first time I've seen on this site referring to that date! Whatever you make of this is up to you and the other viewers of this site, but add to this Purslows comments (BBC website last week) that he expected offers or 'things' to start happening mid way through July, and he also expected a deal to be completed by august 31st, there could well be something in this rumour! If people would like to comment then great, if you want to rubbish it then fine (fair enough it is the old story of met a man in a pub) but this is a rumours page, and what I was told was a rumour, not saying a believe it 100% just think there could be something there!

United Rumours:

Manchester United are looking to sign 4 players in this transfer window. A defensive midfielder, an attacking midfielder, a striker & a rightback.
For the defensive midfielder, they are looking at Sami Khedira of Germany & VfB Stuttgart or Lassana Diarra of France & Real Madrid. Khedira would cost about £13 million whereas Diarra would be around about £20 million.
As an attacking midfielder, the number one target is Wesley Sneijder of Holland & Internazionale but other options are Mesut Ozil of Germany & Werder Bremen or Yoann Gourcuff of France & Girondins de Bordeaux. Sneijder would cost a pricey £29 million with Ozil costing £22 million and Gourcuff costing just £18 million.
The most likely striker coming to Old Trafford is Karim Benzema of France & Real Madrid but they are also considering Luis Suarez of Uruguay & Ajax and also KlaasJan Huntelaar of Holland & AC Milan. Benzema would either be a loan move or a £25 million deal. Suarez would be about £25 million and Huntelaar would cost about £19 million.
The options at rightback are Phillipp Lahm of Germany & Bayern Munchen, Gregory van der Wiel of Holland & Ajax and possibly Sergio Ramos of Spain & Real Madrid, although he is very unlikely as he has previously stated he would not like to move to England. Lahm would cost about £21 million, van der Wiel would be about £14 million and Ramos would cost around £27 million.
All from credible sources within Old Trafford.

LFC are close to signing wrightphillips and joe cole.
Hodgeson wants to add width to the liverpool team, and wants to play wrightphillips on the right and joe cole on the left. These two deals have convinced gerrard to stay. As hodgeson has announced on skysports. One more deal likly to be a striker rumours are klose or podolski but they are in negoations with ruiz. This is to ease the work load on torres which resulted in him being injured due to him being forced to come back to play to quickly after injury.

Man Utd will sign the following:

Benzema(As part of the swap deal for Vidic)
Chellini(25million)
Sniejder(35million)
Ozil(25 million)
Total85million

FELLOW MANK, WHY WOULD UNITED BUY TWO ATTACKING MIDFIELDERS IN OZIL AND SNEIJDER, THEY ONLY NEED ONE SO IT WILL BE ONE OR THE OTHER. CHIELINI IS TOO EXPENSIVE SO FERGIE HAS DECIDED TO LEAVE HIM ALONE. SNEIJDER IS A POSSIBILITY AS IS BENZEMA AND CAHILL. BUT BERBATOV AND CARRICK MUST BE SOLD.

Ed my cousin said he (dan gosling) used to go to watch torquay as a boy religiously, even when he used to play for the pilgrims youth teams he used to find time to watch torquay, he says he never really supported a premiership team as such but he did have a soft spot for west ham, god knows why!

i also asked him what he was like at school, for example greedy? cocky? he said he was okay most of the time but he was big headed and always had money and the best clothes and trainers, mobiles etc, his parents were comfortable financially, so no real clues to why he left everton, maybe another team has tapped him up? i do know everton were only paying him 8k a week, 15k a week was the new offer! {editor's note – only 8k a week? Must have been a real hardship for him to survive on that pittance!!}

To the Arsenal fans who think they are going to buy everyone if you sell Fabregas which is more than likely you will never get the 40 million pound that some of you are claiming on here. As for a replacement if you think that you will be able to sign Ozil a player who has excelled at this world cup for a fee a low as 20 million then you are all clearly deluded Barcelona will never pay the gooners all that money for Fabregas a player they stole of them you will be lucky to get 30 million and will have to shell out at least the same if not more for Ozil a player who clearly will be in demand after the world cup he has had!!



I'll have you know that Arsenal are justas , if not more able to sign Ozil or anyone else. We are just as good as United, Chelsea , Real, Barca. Yes we have had CB and GK problems but the rest of the team is more than able of destroying any team.

We have the money (no debt unlike some)One of the worlds best managers, not some gum chewing rudolph lookalike, who is deluded about Rooney being the best in the world when he is seriously overrated. On our day we are the best in the world at what we do

Ozil to Arsenal!!

This should be reliable.

I was watching the Spain/Germany game last night with my friend and the guy who lives below his flatwho is in property. Said his company had been showing Christopher Samba around a tres expensive house in North East London suburbs. Therefore, he COULD be moving to Tottenham, West Ham, Arsenal? Could be ANY london club really. I haven't made this up, but he might have. Although, he isn't a footie fan so it's unlikely he'd muster up Samba of all people to lie about.

I have heard that man u will be looking at bringing in Sneider, Benzema, and Mesut Ozil. Combined fee of around £70 mill. I can see Carrick going to spurs, Berba off to AC or Bayern Munich. Anderson will be given another year. Vidic may well be off to Madrid as part of the Benzema deal. However I can not see Evra leaving, as he will be ridiculed for his part in the French capitulation. Fergie has already proved that he can help players through difficult times after disasterous international tournaments (Becks, Ronnie, Rooney). I think Hernandez looks good and could play well with Rooney up front.

I can see next years top 4 being

1 Man U (if they strengthen)
2 Chelsea
3 Arsenal
4 Man City

Come on UNITED :)

ive heard it could be a takeover or a signing
so any idea?? cheers {editor's note in my opinion, nothing, it was just a date plucked out of thin air to make a rumour sound more believable.}

This does tie in (tenuously) with martin Broughton saying that the first round of bids were die in midJuly at Roy''s press conference last week.

There are bids in the background but none have been accepted yet

Someone said Erik Nevland has signed for Koln. That is not true. For months it has been well known here in Norway that he signed for Norwegian club Viking when he still was at Fulham. Hodgson didn't like that at all but played Nevland anyway.

As a United supporter I check this site daily, but there are not much about United here. But we all know Ferguson, he can keep things by himself. United have to strenghten, and Carrick, berbatov and Anderson are not up to the standard. Is it possible to get money for Hargo I hope the sell. But can someone answer this: United both loosing Evra and Vidic? What is happening on the leftback then?

UNITED SUPPORTER? MORE LIKE A LIVERPOOL SUPPORTER, HARGREAVES, ANDERSON, EVRA AND VIDIC ARE GOING NOWHERE KID, UNITED NEED AN ATTACKING MIDFIELDER AND THAT IS IT. WHEN I WATCHED HARGREAVES IN A RESERVE GAME HE LOOKED VERY SHARP, I WILL BE SHOCKED IF HE CANNOT GET BACK TO HIS PREVIOUS WORLD CLASS SELF, AS HE REALLY DID LOOK GOOD IN THAT RESERVE GAME, REMEMBER THAT WAS HIS FIRST GAME IN 19 MONTHS, GET M.U.T.V AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO CHECK HIM OUT IN THE 7 FRIENDLIES UNITED WILL BE PLAYING THIS MONTH. OR JUST SUBSCRIBE IT FOR THIS MONTH ONLY, CANT GO WRONG FOR £7, ITS LIKE A POUND A GAME ONCE THE MONTH IS UP, CANCEL IT!

"George Boateng is wanted by Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest, Stoke City and Fulham"

This is rubbish. Newcastle have no interest in Boateng at all. Hughton has publically stated that he wants to sign players of a good age (26 or under) as we already have players of relatively good experience in the Prem (take Smith and Nolan for example)

Also can't see Fulham or Stoke taking him either as they already have better players.

"Inter Milan will offer Wesley Sneijder 3.5m euros a year, it is not the 3.5m sterling which some papers are printing, he will be offered 110k a week, the

""You need to check your math. euro 3.5M is about £3M which is about £60k (euro 70k) per week. Sharkey.""

Sorry i was not clearer Sharkz, Sneijder will be offered around 3m sterling a year 'AFTER TAX' by Inter, so he will be given around 101k a week. As Britains tax rate is 50% and Italy's is 43% United will need to offer 115k a week to match Inters offer of taking home 3m sterling. Although i hear the offer on the table from United will be 110k a week for four years, i suppose there is room for negotiation! United may choose to make the rest of the money up in a one off payment, this will be added to his signing on fee.

About 6 weeks ago a girl from my work went to Dubai with her family. She actually met a few footballers over there. Jimmy floyd hasselbaink said torres was practically a done deal for Chelsea. She also met David bentley, he said he was definatley going to leave tottenham. He said his agent was talking to Liverpool, (rafa left so maybe that scuppered the deal) she also met darren fletcher, her brother inlaw (he supports Liverpool) had a bit of banter asking him if man u are buying anyone? He replied don't know are you? This is 100% true, she got holiday snaps to prove it.

I'm a Chelsea fan, and not a recent convert from the days of when we had glen hoddle in charge! so i know a little about how my club is run. there won't be any £30m+ signings this summer nor for the foreseeable future, they are trying to become self suficeint, they will buy new players but id imagine under 25 and at a good price, Lukaku may come in and go back out on loan, they will need another attacking midfielder but it will be some young starlet not a big name from the worldcup, don't get me wrong Oezil would do great i just think teams like Man City will offer 2x the price and 2x the wages, and still finish out the top 3, look out for kakuta and bruma making first team games and doing well. Chelsea will win the league again because we won't change the team who won it last year alot!

ManU have made the following bids so far:
Ninis 9.8mil (deal almost done the only problem is that SAF is being asked to raise his bid by another 1mil)
Sneijder 31mil (official bid was made a few hours ago, Moratti's decision is still pending)
Bids to be made within a week
Benzema 22mil (Jose may ask for a swap with Vidic. If SAF agrees, it'll be a cashless swap)
G.Cahill 13.5mil (only if Vidic leaves)
Ozil 24mil (only if the Sneijder bid is rejected. Berbatov might be used for bargaining)
T.Kroos possible swap deal with Berbatov (again) "if the Sneijer and Ozil bids are rejected" (no idea about the cash involved)
Also, I've heard that SAF has told Moratti that the club will match any bids made by M.City for Mario B. But if you ask me, this might be trash talk.

Hi, I am a Newcastle fan but live and work in Glasgow, I actually work in Glasgow airport and agree with the guy about gattuso, y is he back in glasgow tho?.

Newcastle will sign bougherra for £6million and Scott brown for £4.5 million. Very good sources in Tyneside.

Celtic aren't good enough for half the players they are claiming to sign and most of them are over 33 and are injury prone. L same as rangers mind u .


CAUSE GATTUSOS WIFE IS SCOTTISH AND HER FAMILY LIVE IN GLASGOW AND YOU ARE WELL A RANGERS FAN AND MOST OF CELTICS TARGETS ARE OVER 33 WELL THERE IS ONLY 1 CAMPBELL

The reason gattuso was at glasgow airport was probably the fact his wife has come over to visit her family as she is from glasgow or scotland.
however i herd theres a small possibility that he was or is in talks with a dubai club or something bt i hope walter steps in while hes on his visits and convinces him to play in glasgow for the gers for a year or two

I met Abou Diaby yesterday evening at a charity event in London. (I have pics of me with him if you want proof). Anyway, he expressed his delight at the signing of Koscienly as he has been tipped as a star for the future for many years in France.

With regards other signings, Abou confirmed Wengers interest in Joe Cole but was unsure whether or not we would sign him as it was completely the players decision. I got the impression that we may have just missed out on him.

Also confirmed that Eduardo will stay (especially in light of Bendtner and Van Persies injury proness). Campbell has been offered a further 1 year deal. Is jsut waiting for AW to return from SA to finalise it.

The Fabregas situation is a more interesting one. According to the big man, Cesc outlined his frustrations to Wenger in that infamous meeting. His primary concerns were the lack of signings over the past years. He wanted assurances from Wenger that a 'big' player would be brought in. Diaby expects this to be Gourguff.

Time is ticking for AW if he wants to keep Cesc. A big signing needs to be in place within a week of the end of the World Cup or Cesc will officially hand in a transfer request.

Finally, Wenger is not willing to spend more than 3 million on a goal keeper as he ended up signing Kosceinly deal cost double what they expected. That limits the options so expect schwarzer or else nobody.

This is a REAL fact. Will be official today:

Miroslav Klose is signing for Liverpool.
He's being paid 10m pounds for the transfer and his annual salary will be 8, 5 million. His shirt number will probably be 7.

Isn't £10m rather a large transfer fee to pay for a player who's available on a free ?

Norwich to complete free transfers for Marlon Harewood and Lloyd Sam this week. Sam was due to sign for Leeds but following discussions with Paul Lambert he has changed his mind and chosen to move to Carrow Road.

I'm pretty sure Gattusso isn't in Scotland as he was filmed on sky sports news recently regarding talks to play in Dubai for Al Ahli (sp?). Quite sure they'd have asked him why they were filming his interview in Scotland if that was the case.

Kevin Thompson is not going anywhere!! He is happy at Rangers and more importantly Walter sees him as the engine in Gers midfield! I agree we have to sell, however we have assets that IMHO we can cope withoute.g Bougy. Its going to be a big season for Fleck, I can see 1 or 2 loan signings, perhaps 1 or 2 buys for no more than a couple of million all in.
Let them try and catch uswe welcome the chase!

To the ed, ive heard alot about somethin happening on the 15th of july, heard on numerous occassions of this date, in regards to liverpool and was wondering if it is known what it is about?

ive heard it could be a takeover or a signing
so any idea?? cheers {editor's note in my opinion, nothing, it was just a date plucked out of thin air to make a rumour sound more believable.}

Apparently in the press conference where Roy was unveiled, Broughton announced that no bids had been made for the club as yet (although a fair amount of interest), but the first round of bids would begin from the 15th July, so don't expect anything exciting happening that day, will still be a while til anything interesting happens! Check it out on the BBC site and Sky Sports News regarding Roy's unveiling

Newcastle United Rumours:

Dan Gosling to sign, a lot of people have been saying Liverpool, Manchester United etc, however, he is more likely to get into Newcastle's team with the big status still being here. He should sign within a few days.

Tom Cleverly will also sign on a season long loan. Danny Rose is also being watched as Spurs consider loaning him out. McFadden could be signed as could Onuoha still and also Charlie Austin



big load of crap, how can gosling sign for anyone, hes out with a cruciate ligiment injury till after christmas so therefore would fail a medical, if anything he will stay at everton n just stay second fiddle to jack rodwell!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Why does any injury stop him signing, Downing signed for Villa with an injury, Owen signed for Man Utd with an injury..If the club is willing to take that chance then they don't even need a medica.l

 

08 Jul 2010 10:15:29
Also Leeds have offered terms to Robert Koren but he has offers from Blackpool and Newcastle so that deal looks unlikely.
_

Hughton ruled out Koren ages ago so i wouldn't put money on him being at newcastle next season.

 

08 Jul 2010 10:15:30
I posted a few days ago regarding players I thought had excelled at the WC, but who I hadn't seen linked with any clubs.

The editor said Salcido was linked with Arsenal, which I confess I do not remember must have been preWC right?

But despite reading this site about three times a day, and looking at BBC Football Gossip and various other transfer sites, numerous other players I posted about have still to be linked with any club as far as I can tell.

I cannot understand why the world's best clubs are not bidding for Kwadwo Asamoah, who was strong, decent in the tackle, kept possession beautifully and has a wonderful rangey leftfooted pass. And I believe is what, 21? 22? I also thought his teammate Andre Ayew showed masses of promise.

To all the arsenal fans who have posted that goalkeeper Eduardo is joining you , i'm afraid your wrong he has just agreed to sign for geona.

 

08 Jul 2010 10:26:02
Dan Gosling to Newcastle! What a joke why would he want to go to a team that's gonna be struggling with relegation and have hardly any money. If Man Utd, Liverpool or Arsenal etc come in for him you gonna bet he will jump at the chance to join them. maybe not so much Liverpool as he did play for Everton. Newcastle have no chance of Kevin Prince Boateng coz he will go to a bigger club abroad, the man city defender Onouah(sorry about the spelling) will be going to Everton or Sunderland.
Newcastle are gonna sign no name players like Sunderland did years ago and they will struggle and get relegated.

What I think will Happen with Transfers:

Cashley Cole Real Madrid
Gerrard Staying
Torres Depends on what Hodgson has to say to him.otherwise Chelsea, Man City or Barcelona
Mascherano Inter
J Cole Arsenal or Liverpool bound
Lampard Staying
Keane Villa
Milner Man City
Ireland Liverpool or Villa
Sneider Man Utd or Man City
Ozil Chelsea or Man City
Sweinsteiger Chelsea or Man City
C Cole Not going to Stoke probs Villa or Liverpool
Fabiano Man Utd
Berbatov Anywhere in Europe
Robinho Stay at City see how it goes
Fabregas Barcelona
Young Liverpool if they can afford him 20m
Cattermole staying at Sunderland
Bent staying at Sunderland
O'hara maybe Wolves or Blackburn
Upson Sunderland may involve Ferdinand
N'zogbia Sunderland or Arsenal
Taylor Liverpool or Arsenal
Pique Man City

Man united despite saying berba will stay have changed their minds and want to sell him his replacement will be out of either benzema, balotelli, poldoski, agbonglahor, klose and a playmaker will defientley come maybe 2 two playmakers but 1 will come.

 

08 Jul 2010 09:47:32
Firstly i would like to say props to the editor for a great site i read every hour during the transfer window! Now down to business after reading the recent post by the freelancer i was glad to finally see a person truly in the know i am also very close to the cole family and can confirm that joes uncle sadly passed last week due to pneumonia clearly it is a sad time for the family so i would hope people take note and stop posting crap about seeing him in liverpool or tottenham etc

On another subject a close contact inside the emirates tells me to be prepared for three signings early next week he won't reveal w
ho and believe me i tried everything to get it out of him but he did assure me arsenal fans will be very happy people come next week!

 

08 Jul 2010 09:55:20
Just a thought, considering Inter Milan are in a far healthier financial state than most Italian teams (and english for that matter) coupled with the fact they won a treble last season with all the revenue going into the club why are people under the impression they need to sell snieder to afford mascherano? I doubt Benitez would have taken the job if there wasn't money to spend.

 

08 Jul 2010 10:01:27
Man u will buy either wesley sneijder or mario baloteli most likely baloteli it won't be both if fail in both man u will buy benzema or poldoski but baloteli will be the most likely to come maybe the new eric cantona.

Arsene is after between 24 more players depending on sales and if he can keep Cesc. Cesc is the key to ending the 5 year wait for the trophy and that trophy will be the premier league.. Arsene will look for a young keeper with potential and that keeper would be none other than joe hart for a fee of 12 million, Arsene sees hart as Englands number 1 and the closest thing to david seaman he will have had since the great man left arsenal. Wenger will then look to sign another cb as he looks to stegnthen his backline of which there is a couple of targets I think possibly cahill 812 million and possibly a couple of forigen targets but it depends whether he wants to start his new signing as his number 1 cb. Another signing will come in midfield to add some steele to the midfield possibly cambiasso if inter sign maschrano, melo is off the agenda after his poor world cup and even a possible return for one gilberto silva is a real possability he is still top quality and could be essential to arsenals potential success. If Cesc leaves then Arsene will put his faith in young Jack Wilshire who will take a few years to develop like Fabregas did, losing Cesc would mean no title for arsenal and would result in RVP leaving along with a couple of others who have been waiting for success at arsenal for a while.

 

08 Jul 2010 12:09:47
An update on Ben Arfa. It is being reported this morning in Marseille that there has still been no firm offer for the player. The discussions with Bordeaux led to nothing. General enquiries by Aston Villa and Birmingham City did not lead to any offers being made. Everton have not, to date, renewed the interest they previously had in the player.

As I stated yesterday, Ben Arfa's preferred destination is Paris Saint Germain – but no offers from there either. Marseille are now willing and expecting Ben Arfa to leave

However, I have heared today that Marseille are moving ahead with finding a replacement – Sebastian Giovinco from Juventus although some fear he may be too similar to Mathieu Valbuena. Sevilla may well declare an interest in Giovinco as well.

08 Jul 2010 09:22:12
Someone said Erik Nevland has signed for Koln. That is not true. For months it has been well known here in Norway that he signed for Norwegian club Viking when he still was at Fulham. Hodgson didn't like that at all but played Nevland anyway.

As a United supporter I check this site daily, but there are not much about United here. But we all know Ferguson, he can keep things by himself. United have to strenghten, and Carrick, berbatov and Anderson are not up to the standard. Is it possible to get money for Hargo I hope the sell. But can someone answer this: United both loosing Evra and Vidic? What is happening on the leftback then?

Interesting one for Donny Rovers fans. Brian Stock is strongly rumoured to be joining the Saints. HOWEVER, John Ryan is insisting on Ricky Lambert coming the other way in a straight swap deal!!

Absolute rubbish. Brian Stock is not leaving Doncaster, I had a chat with him yesterday at the local friendly game and John Ryan. Simon Gillett was also there and his signing will be announced today. Stephen Caulker of Spurs who was on loan at Yeovil last season is to join on a season long loan. Jay EmmanualThomas and Jordan Mutch are also set to return on loan as long as they do not make their respective clubs first team squad. Andy Keogh is also set to join on a season long loan but with a view to a permanent deal.
There are a couple of other suprises being worked on but John is keeping those close to his chest as those deals are not as far along as the ones mentioned.

Hi, I am a Newcastle fan but live and work in Glasgow, I actually work in Glasgow airport and agree with the guy about gattuso, y is he back in glasgow tho?.

Newcastle will sign bougherra for £6million and Scott brown for £4.5 million. Very good sources in Tyneside.

Celtic aren't good enough for half the players they are claiming to sign and most of them are over 33 and are injury prone. L same as rangers mind u .

 

08 Jul 2010 09:03:39
Heard that Arsenal are not going to start a deal for Rafik Halliche after Arsenal spoke with Halliche's representatives in London. Apparently they want somebody more experienced than the 23 year old who plays on loan from Benfica at Nacional in Portugal last season. Had a good world cup and has 20 caps for Algeria. But him and Koscielny are too inexperienced. You never know though..

The Halliche rumour you could say seems wrondg as Arsenal are starting talks with Serdar Tasci. Same age as Halliche. In German WC Squad and 12 caps. Similar to Halliche but is a bit more experienced at club level for Stuttgart.

Any of these two would be good signings along with Chamakh, Koscielny and Hopefully a new GK and Ozil

 

08 Jul 2010 09:18:19
RE
"08 Jul 2010 01:58:42Liverpool to sign Arda Turan, ReoCoker & Taye Taiwo. Mascherano to follow Yossi out the door aswell as Aurelio(free) & Cavalieri."

Um, I know that there is a persistent vanity among managers that they alone can get get the best out of talented underachievers like ReoCoker, but isn't he now rewcognised as a bit of a lost cause? Surely the most likely move for young Nigel (if anywhere) is downwards? He can warm the bench perfectly well at Villa, but I think the lad needs to play regularly.

Whilst I think you're right about Cav leaving (it has been discussed for some while, but I am surprised by the time it has taken so presumably he's just being given time to do what he needs to do), both Arda Turan and Taiwo were rumoured benitez targets although it seems Turan might never have been seriously looked at and as yet I'm not sure how many of these are being carried over to Hodgson's team. Few I suspect.

As for this persistent 'buy British' tagline associated with hodgson, wasn't this actually in place BEFORE the Rafalucion came to an end? Hence shelvey and sterling and so on. And isn't this a reaction to the fact that the lfc academy wasn't performing as well it might, that epl rules require 8 home grown players and that as we've seen at Manure and Arse for example, bringing in teenagers from all over Europe doesn't always have the long term benefit on the 1st team as hoped as many yearn to return to their roots or the teams they supported as children. Insert your own list of examples here.

I think its likely that RH will add a few more british players to the squad but these will be chosen on merit (relative to available funds). To just choose players based on nationality alone would be laughable and I'm with Neil007 and Mr Editor on the list of socalled english targets that the media has Hodgson chasing not likely, not good enough and not in the frame.

I am intrigued however by this Insua/Fiorentina rumour as generally I would assume that anything with that level of contradictory reporting is just nonsense, but I'm beginning to wonder.

Charlie Austin will definitely be a Swindon player for 201011.

However, Gordon Greer is set to depart for Brighton. He will be replaced by Arsenal loanee Thomas Cruise.

Tony Capaldi to sign on Friday, with Jamie Hammond (Cheltenham Saracens) and Mike Chennells (Windsor & Eton) also joining on frees. Steve Smith (Poole) is in talks with Bournemouth and Yeovil.

Peter Enckleman was in talks with Swindon, but these have stalled as he has been offered Championship football with Coventry City. A young keeper is coming in on loan from Liverpool Peter Gulasci (?)

With Rose and Prutton already in and Caddis and Ferry to sign permanently once the squad is trimmed down (Michael Timlin, Callum Kennedy, Jakub Jesionkowski, Will Evans and Alan O'Brien to leave for Wycombe Wanderers, Gloucester City, Newport County, Weston Super Mare and Morecambe respectively) Swindon look like having a good chance of promotion!

To The Editor

A quick question about your response regarding transfers changing at the last minute.
"As far as I can tell you won't be far off, but that could change tomorrow if Alonso is offered to Liverpool for instance.}"
Trying to drop a little nugget of info for us? If so, who do Real want? Surely not Stevie. (wink wink) {editor's note – I was just using him as an example of a player that Liverpool would drop all other deals in order to sign. There will not be any movement around Alonso until after July 11th, at least, I very much doubt Jose would let him go.}

Ed is it likely that sneijder's price will be as low as 30 mill? i mean for a player who was instrumental in inter winning the treble last season and can potentially return to club football with a world cup and/or a fifa golden ball to boot, a runaway candidate for world player of the year who still has another 78 years of top class football left in him, shouldn't his price be closer to the 5060 mark? {editor's note – I don't see Inter selling him, Rafa likes one of those type of players to build the team around. He had Aimar at Valencia and Gerrard at Liverpool, I think he will view Sneijder in the same way.}

Im hearing more rumours again from my mate from Germany, that Schweinsteiger is moving to London. So that would suggest Chelsea or Arsenal. He would be a great signing for Arsenal if Fabregas goes.

Also Leeds have offered terms to Robert Koren but he has offers from Blackpool and Newcastle so that deal looks unlikely.

Leeds have made moves to sign Boyd from Peterborough and have enquired about loaning 2 Arsenal players, thought to be Jay EmmanuelThomas and Sanchez watt. Expect one or two of the Brazilian trialists to be signed.

Leeds will not sign Hooper, he is too expensive he will most likely go to Celtic.

Bach @ the person who said Sorry to burst your bubble mate, but I have it on good authority that Ledley will be signing for neither old firm side.
He's always said he'd prefer the premiership and Liverpool look set to make a solid offer

Bullard is beginning to look more likely though. As for a 'top striker' I can only assume you're making pure guesses due to the lack of a name. Anyone can say that their club will sign a top striker, sign anyone and say 'I was right'

I don't expect to see any of these players paraded tomorrow. Pure guesswork that post was.

Sorry you burst your bubble mate but ledley has signed a 1.25m a year contract..in the papers today.

Man u are signing my nanny for 275327735380183 to cover for Rooney.

Onto real rumours.

Arsenal are looking everywhere for a keeper in a bargain buy. One such option would be Eduardo, the portugese keeper. This would cost the gunners £3.2m (his buyout clause)

wenger is also looking for a strong right sided central defender to partner vermaelen. Tasci or mertesacker could be possibilities for £10m and £12m respectively.

Konscienly can play on the right side of central defence but most likely will not be in the starting XI

the freelancer
me again for long time readers you will remember i am very close to Joe cole.
this is a horrible post 4me to write but all u people stating joe is here joe is there are incorrect.
he had planned to take a break after the WC then announce his decision which was 99% likely to sign for AFC
anyway this di dnot happen as a very close family member sadly unexpectably passed away last week so he is here with his grieving family with his mind on anything but football.
this is not saying he will/wont talk to clubs but at the moment that's far from on his mind.
also question for the editor how can u possibly have all this info on what seems like every club i dontknow anyone in the industry with the inside knowledge you do, or is some of the stuff you post just your thoughts?
regards

CELTIC NEWS , FACTS
joe ledley and jimmy bullard will sign tonight they will be paraded tomorrow , next in will be liam lawrence , and a top striker! posted this monday 2 players on trial will also be signed one from hull other from montevideo! journo


Sorry to burst your bubble mate, but I have it on good authority that Ledley will be signing for neither old firm side.
He's always said he'd prefer the premiership and Liverpool look set to make a solid offer

Bullard is beginning to look more likely though. As for a 'top striker' I can only assume you're making pure guesses due to the lack of a name. Anyone can say that their club will sign a top striker, sign anyone and say 'I was right'

I don't expect to see any of these players paraded tomorrow. Pure guesswork that post was.


Actually mate Ledley will be signing for Celtic tomorow
Celtic will also go for Cardiff's orther star player Peter Witingham for £4m or give Glenn Loovens back to Cardiff and pay £2m for Witingham.

Rumours that gennaro gattusu of inter milan was spotted at glasgow airport on route to ibrox late afternoon this maybe a coincidence to the fact he stated (10 ) years ago . stating he would come back to ibrox , also his wife is from glasgow and child born in glasgow. possible rumour ?


Firstly, he's from AC Milan, which shows just how in the know you are
Heard nothing of it. Dont believe it.
I've not actually seen any of these 'I saw him at the airport/training ground/city rumors turn out to be true :(

Heard a couple of rumours saying that Miroslav Klose is going to sign for Liverpool.

Have you heard anything about this Editor?? and have you got any other Liverpool news?? {editor's note – I have not heard anything on Klose at all, apart from paper talk. I can only remember one player ever signing for a new club in the middle of a World Cup anyway – David Silva. So I doubt Klose would have struck a deal just yet with anyone.}

For those who are making out that the Ledley deal to Celtic is done, you may want to read the statement made by the agent

From BBC Sportscotland

"And Ledley's agent David Baldwin told BBC Scotland: "At the moment we're just having a look around, simple as that."

"There's a few places that we've wanted to have a look at."

Asked what the chances of Ledley joining Celtic were, Baldwin replied: "I don't know, it's early days yet, we'll see. "

Talks are NOT at advanced enough stages for medicals and unveilings.

Danny drinkwater trained with cardiff city today and will sign on a years loan from manchester united once transfer embargois lifted shortly FACT

You heard it here first

You said it WHEN the transfer embargo is lifted. Cardiff are in deep deep dodo and will need to pay off IN FULL both Charlton for Hudson and Sunderland for Chopra no part payments which is what they are offering. Oh, and the small matter of 1.3m to the HMRC. Then ANOTHER 1.3m or so in a month, then the month after that, then the.get the picture ? Then, in December they have to pay 10m to Langstones (Hammam). They are going under with Administration and 10 minimum points or Sam Hammam saving them being their only two options. Forget the Malaysians, they've had enough.

Who said his above wants to get there facts right, drinkwater will be signing already agreed on offical site, and another thing is you don't have a clue on the money point, tax bill will be paid soon, cardiff gettin 900k from ledley for goin to celtic which 500,000 goin to the rest of hudson deal, the sunderland thing is sorted so ur wrong there again, and the langston deal doesn't have to be paid all at once cardiff have been payin 83,000 pound a month since january if the 10 millon agreed hasnt been paid by end of december goes up to the 24 millon that was there in the first place. and cardiff will not enter adminstration at all and the malysians are stayin for the long haul

any news on dan gosling, the one linked with everyone but can't sign for anyone till after christmas because he will fail a medical lmao {editor's note – I get fed up with the stupid rumours myself, I keep hoping that getting them ripped apart on here will make people see sense. I am still hoping.... I haven't anything on Gosling right now, I am trying to get hold of my mate that knows him but he isn't answering his phone to me, probably knows I am not best pleased lol.}

Inter Milan will offer Wesley Sneijder 3.5m euros a year, it is not the 3.5m sterling which some papers are printing, he will be offered 110k a week, the same amount the Man United top earner is receiving Rio Ferdinand! Although Rooney will be offered 130k a week in the coming weeks. Manchester United will offer the Dutchman the same amount as Inter but will hope he will choose them. He has won everything he can with Inter so maybe a change of scenery is just what the doctor ordered.

Newcastle United Rumours:

Dan Gosling to sign, a lot of people have been saying Liverpool, Manchester United etc, however, he is more likely to get into Newcastle's team with the big status still being here. He should sign within a few days.

Tom Cleverly will also sign on a season long loan. Danny Rose is also being watched as Spurs consider loaning him out. McFadden could be signed as could Onuoha still and also Charlie Austin



big load of crap, how can gosling sign for anyone, hes out with a cruciate ligiment injury till after christmas so therefore would fail a medical, if anything he will stay at everton n just stay second fiddle to jack rodwell!

:BREAKING NEWS:

Inconsistant keeper, Lukanz Fablianski (Aka Flapyanski) will be offered by arsenal to blue square premier league side York city for 1 pound in an attempt get rid of the useless burden.

Konscienly has also completed his transfer from French ligue 1 side lorient. The fee was undisclosed but reports say it was
in the region of £810m.

Arsenal are set to offer ajax 10m for former vermaelen centre half partner Jan Vertongen. Ajax are expected to except the offer, the selling club which they are. This deal may have implications for ajax who will have lost their two first choice centre backs in as many years.

Ed do you have any news on sneijder coming to Manchester united and anything on benzema or other transfer targets {editor's note – I don't right now, I am trying to find out if Rafa has much power over transfers at Inter or not, because that might make a huge difference to Sneijder's potential move to United. All the reports I have read seem to disagree with each other though, some think he has very little power, others think Rafa has been given free reign. I can't see him dealing with United if he has the choice.}

Whoever wrote about raul joining celtic. he has pretty much signed 4 schalke.

also whoever wrote abou marcus berg this won't happen as hes hamburgs top striker and celtic won't be able to afford £10m which hamburg would at least want.

keane won't join as he will probably go 2 villa and spurs want to sell not loan.

A COUPLE STORIES HERE ED, BACKING UP ONE OR TWO PEOPLES PREDICTIONS TODAY.

United are apparently willing to pay £29m for Inter playmaker Sneijder and the Premier League club are also ready to compete with Manchester City for Inter's £30mrated striker Mario Balotelli.
Full story: Da!ly Male

Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson will bid for Wigan's Maynor Figueroa if he can sell leftback Emiliano Insua for £5m.
Full story: Da!ly Reflection

Newcastle are confident of singing England Under21 midfielder Dan Gosling, who left Everton on a free transfer after the Merseysiders failed to put a contract offer in writing by the middle of May. Full story: Da!ly Male

ALSO DOES THE LIVERPOOL STORY SUGGEST HODGSON HAS LITTLE TO SPEND? I THINK BALOTELLI IS A RED HERRING, I'M SURE UNITED ARE NOT INTERESTED IN HIM, I THINK THEY WANT TO DIVERT CITY AWAY FROM BENZEMA PERHAPS? CITY WILL DO THEIR BEST TO SWALLOW UP UNITED'S TARGETS.

All these rumors going on about fernando torres and steven gerrard leaving liverpool is a load of CP . as i watched tv yesterday liverpool boss said that Gerrard and Torres arent for sale so don't bother to make a bid that's what he said. Torres hasnt snubbed liverpool so all i have to say is don't write something that isn't true . it just confusing people because one persons saying one thing and another is saying different . this is the god honest truth . if you don't believe me go to the LFC website and it tells you everything. Hodgson has sed .

Pachecco and Torres will be upfrount alongside dirk kuyt
Steven Gerrard is Midfield as he is now and xabi alonso might be coming back on loan

Also other players have been sed to come to liverpool but none have been comfirmed yet
Riera may be stayin too as it is said on the website and yossi and lucus and masherano have deffo gone so there you have it x



as far as we know roy said he can't speak to nando till back from the world cup so knows nothing on the situation and torres if you watched his interview said he won't discuss his future until after the worlld cup and a holiday then he shall speak with the club the manager and his agent, so don't talk crap

lmao why would real madrid loan us back xabi when he was voted their fans player of the year and their then president said he was the summers best signing, so why on earth would they just say here ya go liverpool have on the free loan for a year lol

lmao hodson said lucas is in his plans and yossi went last week, stevie g is not gonna be our chicken dipper next season, we all know that hes leaving, when they asked about hodgsons appointment he refused to comment, errrmmm to me that's someone saying im not playing under him,

we have 815 million to spend, joe cole said he wants to stay in london, so rules out him on a free,
also rules out are dreamer fans targets, of aguero n co,
ive heard we are snooping round steven ireland, micah richards, damien duff though, none would cost alot either, ireland the highest at about 6 million :)

 

07 Jul 2010 23:52:10
I doubt that Manchester United will get their man Sneijder as Rafael Benitez is keen to keep him. My source tells me that Sneijder may be worth 43 million at the end of the World Cup. Chelsea are cooling off their interest for the 4 Germans but may make a big signing soon. Manchester City have made Milner top priority and are willing to tell other teams to wait as they get negotiations underway for the last time. Arsenal may just have to wait to get to excited as my source revealed that soon enough they may have enough money to make an improved bid for Fabregas and Evra believed to be in the region of 60 million. Real Madrid have contacted Manchester United for the availability of Serbian Nemenja Vidic and are willing to open the bidding at £18 million. Tottenham have assessed their options and are ready to make a £11 million bid for Podolski and a £15 million bid for Pienaar. Liverpool could make their first official bid for a player in the next 14 days as Roy Hodgson gets the guys ready for preseason. Any comments Ed or anyone else.

With regards to the post about garry neville selling his house. Last I heard he was selling it because his local council turned down his application to build an eco home. Doubt it has anything to do with him leaving man u.

"07 Jul 2010 21:56:37
MUFC Will Sign Akinfeev , Podolski , Ozil , Sjneider and Sanchez!

MR.MUFC"

What ever happened to your constant assertions about the signings of Di Maria and Higuain Mr MUFC? It's also worth bearing in mind that Inter likely wouldn't part with Sneijder (notice where the J goes) for anything but a massive bid and SAF would have to sell to buy. Also consider the notion of Benitez sanctioning a sale to a man he so dislikes and the idea has little credence.

 

08 Jul 2010 00:05:26
To the guy who said Wesley Sneijder to Utd for £26m. Your having a giraffe m8!
1. His value will be a lot more than £26m
2. Benitez wouldn't sell to Utd.

"I don't know if this means he is moving clubs or just fancies a change. However today I received a 16 Page document showcasing Alexander House as it up for sale. Alexander House is owned by Gary Neville. Decide for yourselfs what that means."


neville has thrown his teddies as he was denied planning permission for his telly tubby eco friendly home, due to local protests because of the heavy construction traffic, ruining the local view during developement, and he wanted a huge garden bush that spelt out united (must be a leeds or newcastle fan on the sly)

he now wants to move out of the area, to take his profile away from the area

he also isn't happy that a couple of scouse builders buried a copy of "the kop" under his swimming pool, which a lot of the other united players gried him for

I DID CONSIDER THIS BUT IF BENITEZ WANTS TO BUY HIS OWN PLAYERS FOR EXAMPLE MASCHERANO, BASTOS AND LUCAS THEN HE WILL HAVE TO CONSIDER THE OFFER, ALTHOUGH IT WILL BE MORATTI'S DECISION COME THE END, A 1722M PROFIT WILL BE TOO MUCH TO TURN DOWN, I THINK THE STUMBLING BLOCKS ARE ANOTHER CLUB COMING IN, OR SNEIJDER REFUSING?

Newcastle will sign two midfielders in the next week or so.

1.) Michael Bradley
2.) Tom Cleverley (seasonlong loan deal)

I am 100% sure both of these transfers will go through.

Some of Chris Hughton's other targets are:

KevinPrince Boateng
Darren Pratley
Dan Gosling
Marcus Pedersen

Brad Inman, Nile Ranger and Ryan Donaldson will all leave on loan.

Ryan Taylor could be on his way out after the arrival of James Perch, with Perch stating that he wants to challenge for the RB spot. Blackpool said to be interested, but Taylor will have to take a paycut as he is estimated to be on £40,000 a week at Newcastle.

With Norwich just signing a new keeper, Forster will instead be joining Burnley.

MANCHESTER UNITED RUMOURS

Manchester United are very close to signing Karim Benzema. The hold up with the deal is that Real Madrid want Nemenja Vidic as part of the deal.
United want to keep Vidic for one more season to help with the proggession of Chris Smalling.

United will pay in the reigion of 18 million for Benzema and agree to sell Vidic next summer for 25 million.

I can also see Gary Cahill arrive at United as well

What do United fans feel about Dan Gosling???
I would take a gamble on him and with rumours mounting of David Moyes taking over next season I can see Gosling sign for free and Jack Rodwell arriving with Moyes next summer..

Also.. Hargreeves will be given until December to prove his fitness and Carrick will remain at United until they make a decision on Hargreaves

Bryan Ruiz Liverpool
Paul Scharner Liverpool (hope not)
Joe Coles 50/50 to joing liverpool or spurs
Roy is also wants some english but he could not confirm who he is looking at, this is a good source of mine.
Also in my opinion torres gerrard reina arnt going nowere, if theres one star player it will be mascharno, but roy has been assured all the money will be reinvested into the squad, but you can't be sure with these yanks!

Ed what do you think we all know transfers can change with in minutes these days with money situations. {editor's note – it is a nightmare to keep up with, that's why, until people start asking me outright, I preferred not post up my own rumours. It is almost impossible to get right, only one team can sign each player yet they normally have at least 5 or 6 teams to choose from. It can come down to player preference or promises given hidden in the contract that no one else knows about. As far as I can tell you won't be far off, but that could change tomorrow if Alonso is offered to Liverpool for instance.}

Any Blackpool news today Ed? im expecting at least 3 players to sign tomorrow but any insights of who they are? {editor's note – only one I know that is close to signing for Blackpool that soon, is the possibility of Scharner. Though I find that difficult to believe as it seems a strange move to leave Wigan for Blackpool, no offence meant but Wigan are a more established team. So I am taking that rumour with a big pinch of salt.}

LEEDS V DERBY :
Schmicheal
Connelly Collins Naylor (c) Bessone

Howson Doyle Kilkenny Snodgrass

Hooper Becchio

Subs: Higgs, Bromby, White, Sam, Russel, Grella, Paynter.

LEEDS will only spend money on Hooper, Sam and Russel will be the only other people coming in on free's, but Leeds may get a defender on loan until Kisnorbos back, also Gradel will be suspended for the 1st game and Parker would be struggling to be fit for Derby.

I have spoke to a news paper jounalist who is very connected within scthorpe utd fc.
he tells me the only stubbling block with the hooper transfer to leeds utd is the sell on clause in his contract to his previous club which is 20%. leeds are not prepared to pay this.

 

07 Jul 2010 22:33:02
Ledley to sign for celtic on thursday, also tracking peter whittingham cardiffs attacking midfielder who scored 25 goals last season for 3 million with loovens being used as possible bait, also heard that lennon quite likes the look of stepjanovic who is available for 1 million from vojvodina. a can hear that thunder. markybhoy

Alberto Aqulliani(sp) is apparently in going to be signing for Chelsea but for only 10m.

TRUEBLUE012 {editor's note – I don't know anything about this, last I heard was that Roy Hodgson wanted to watch him in training before making any decision.}

Got ridiculed for my last post even thogh it was just a maths lesson (young +milner = 35+Babel) as unlikely as it is, the press liking it mind, but from what i hear in legal circles there appear to be some legs on the Aguero to LFC rumour. As a supporter this scares me as the fee would mean a top player sale at the moment. Unless it's earmakred for right at the end of the window, downhill with a following wind.

ED>>> is it true wigan are about to sign MCarthur and izzaguire (sp) from honduras, also roumers are rife that valdez (paraguay FR) is about to join the club?

thoughts please.. {editor's note – I thought I heard one of the commentators say that Izzaguire(sp?) was already signed up by Wigan, so I guess it is correct. McArthur looks likely as McCarthy (I wish one of them would change his name as I get them confused!) has been telling him how good it is at Wigan, though it does depend on the money of course. I have seen a report in a Paraguayan website that had Valdez down as set for Wigan, at least I think that is what it says, the translation that google gave was not very clear to be honest.}

Koscienly got given the number 6 shirt, not 32 and was announced today not Friday. Good try though.

 

07 Jul 2010 22:16:58
To the person that said that
Laurent Koscielny will be revealed as Arsenal's first defense signing this summer on Wenger's press conference this Friday. He will be given the #32 shirt (yes, the one Merida used to wear). He WILL be given the chance to start in preseason friendlies and fight for a place on the pitch pairing up with Tommy V.

He signed today m8 and will use number 6 shirt its on arsenal.com maybe you should of waited longer b4 you commented

Following the completion of Koscielny's transfer to Arsenal, only a GK (Schwarzer or Eduardo) and another centre back (Rafik Halliche or Serdar tasci) are likely to join. Assulin could be signed but is wanted by numerous clubs. A number of sources have mentioned KevinPrinceBoateng can't see it myself

This gosling thing seems odd, but I've heard he's with everton in Australia :s and there seems to be a few pics of him greating the azerbaijan kid when he cane for a medical, you know anythin ed? To me sounds like he will stay {editor's note – I am confused by this as well, the only thing I know about him is that he was saying how well Everton were looking after him following his injury and that he loved life at the club just a few weeks back. This is really strange to me, anyone know how represents him?}

Benfica centre back Miguel Vitor is expected to become Leicester City's second signing of the summer. Also Hugo Colace will sign on a free after Paulo Sousa moved from Swansea where Colace was expected to sign.

Danny drinkwater trained with cardiff city today and will sign on a years loan from manchester united once transfer embargois lifted shortly FACT

You heard it here first

You said it WHEN the transfer embargo is lifted. Cardiff are in deep deep dodo and will need to pay off IN FULL both Charlton for Hudson and Sunderland for Chopra no part payments which is what they are offering. Oh, and the small matter of 1.3m to the HMRC. Then ANOTHER 1.3m or so in a month, then the month after that, then the.get the picture ? Then, in December they have to pay 10m to Langstones (Hammam). They are going under with Administration and 10 minimum points or Sam Hammam saving them being their only two options. Forget the Malaysians, they've had enough.
