Expect confirmation tomorrow

Also Hazard To Join In January

Gooner N1"

Mate youre a deluded disgrace. as an arsenal fan (if indeed you can be counted as a real fan) you should know arsene will never sign/sell ss many players in one summer. also your player list and prices are a load of bull. we will not sign Ozil, Cole AND Gourcuff, only one of them will come in, and even that is only if fabregas goes. having signed koscielny, only one more defender will come in, not subotic AND mertesacker. i doubt either of those will join.
eduardo is by no stretch of the imagination worth £10m, we bought him for £8.5m. after an arsenal career blighted by injury, how the hell is he worth £10m? idiot.

In reply to this:

Joe ledley will not be signing for celtic

funny how hes just completed his medical at celtic and agreed a four year deal. Some people should really watch sky sports new.


YEAH? EXACTLY WHERE ON SKY SPORTS DOES IT SAY THAT HE HAS SIGNED SOME PEOPLE SHOULD ACTUALLY NOT COUNT THEIR CHICKENS! IT MAY STILL HAPPEN BUT IT ALSO MAY NOT!!

Mezut Ozil will sign for man utd after saturdays 3rd4th play off for a fee of 20 million and carrick. Ozil will travel to the USA to meet up with the squad to watch a few games before the community shield game against chelsea. after wolfsburg's signing of kjaer utd will turn towards johnny evans after nemanja vidic will be leaving for real madrid in january . utd will also sign stekenlberg goalkeeper of holland for in the region of 7 million. liverpool will sign endo and raul with gerrard and torres leaving for spain or NORTHern england?


A couple of things i thought i would highlight first of all what makes this guy/girl think carrick would want to move to germany and play for bremen no disrespect as it is a quality competitive league but really why would he, 2nd thing how come hollands young world cup finalist goalie is so cheap he seems solid to me and does look worth more then that especially with the player prices theese days and the last bit get real another manc or londoner worrying about us coming to get them, thanks mr editor brilliant site and im with you on most things regarding our club not fussed about cole weather he comes or not give youth a chance but wouldn't mind a silky left back to help young boy insua and teach him a thing or too thanks again rant over YNWA

"Last bit of info I have I'd that lee hills will be leaving to barnsley, a little odd after he's been injured for months."

That is complete and utter shte, surely?. Why would we opt to sign a left back when we've just signed Jay McEvely who's a left back and we've also got Luke Potter as 2nd choice left back. They're both better than Hills & tbh Hills wouldn't get into the Barnsley squad anyway. He's not good enough.

100% RELIABLE INFORMATION

Just been told by Carragher's cousin (Jamie Keggin) that Joe Cole has told Carra that he wants to sign for Liverpool but the major stumbling block is his missus Carly Zucker, she wants to remain in London as they've got a young child. They are supposed to have gone for a break to try to decide where Joe is going & he wants to talk her round but to be honest, i'm doubtful now that he will join Liverpool and think he is destined to go to one of the London clubs.

A disappointed red.

 

09 Jul 2010 22:44:24
I am a celtic fan and just like everyone out there know that we can't get keane on loan. so no the only option we have is bellamy on a year loan, but the news that's been going around for a few days now is skippys on his way back part of the mcmanas deal, also celtic have had contract talks wae jose concalves, they were waiting on campbells desicion.
_
really ?, go to Goncalves official site and it says "I'm very close to completing my move to Rangers on a four year deal, such a wonderful club"
Glasgow Rangers Champions
Skint & still better than scumtic

miller is going to rangers as part of the thompson to boro transfer

macmanus is still coming from celtic
dawson and hooper are still coming deals agreed already
just have to shift on miller, lita, mido and a few others before they can come

absoulute fact but carnt say how but watch and see

If the Hatem Ben Afra & Landon Donovan are so close to signing for Everton, why is this site the only place It's ever mentioned?

 

09 Jul 2010 22:22:28
Looking at several transfer talk websites and it's reported on them that a 20% sell on fee is delaying the transfer of hooper to Leeds. Just telling u what it says. I'm not sure weather we will get him , just can't imagine bates wouldn't spend that much on one player , and yes we do have the money were making better profits than most of the teams In the league but bates is one tight git as every Leeds fan knows . Just have to wait and see what happens MOT

 

09 Jul 2010 22:23:14

My friend is very close to Joe Cole, I was told two months ago that Joe Cole will be signing for Arsenal and it will be announced after the world cup. I have been told he won't move to Liverpool as it is too far away from his family, he reckons Man. U are on the way down (he doesn't trust the glaizer set up), Tottenham arent guaranteed champions league football this season and he doesn't get on with Harry Rednapp. Its been a done deal since well before the world cup.

All 100% true fact

well you and your mate know sweet fk all cause he has just signed for spurs, harry got crouch, azza, jd, dawson, ledley and even his nephew lamps to talk him into the move ahead of arse



not nailed on at all that is it? He's on Holiday, but apparently he's definately been in Liverpool this week, although I have no idea if he's spoken to any clubs.

CELTIC ARE CLOSE TO SNAPPING UP SctHORPE STRIKER GARY HOOPER FOR AFEE OF £2MILLION.

LEEDS WONT SIGN HIM THEY WILL SIGN ADAM LE FONDRE.

 

09 Jul 2010 21:37:59
Simeon jackson is most likely off to norwich not saints no matter what some dodgy betfair rumour might claim. Wait and see.

we will mate but we got lambert and barnard anyway who are better strikers so won't be to dissapointed if we miss out and plus we got connoly for cover up so won't be to dissapointed.

ALL WRONG
WENGER WONT PAY THAT MUCH THAT BOLTON ARE DEMANDING
COLE IS GOING TO LIVERPOOL
YOUNG IS STAYING AT VILLA
POSSIBLY BUT CLOSER TO 810M
VAN DER WIEL IS SIGNING FOR BAYERN

no mate its you that's wrong, wenger IS willing to pay that because cahill is only young, very talented an hes desperate for another good CB, plus the relationship between him an owen coyle is brilliant, expect wilshere to go on a year loan in the deal. your right about young , wenger isn't interseted. cole isn't going to liverpool, hes said time an time again he wants to stay in london!! spurs or arsenal is the only destinations for him. an ajax have accepted a bid for van der wiel but he hasnt decided because he knows of the interest from arsenal an other clubs, so its not deffient to bayern yet.
handanovic or schwazer to join very soon, with cahill, sahko, halliche but most likely tasci will join, an if cambell leaves i think he may sign another one

James Beattie To southampton £2 Million to replace ricky lambert who scored 31 goals for the saints last season is hot property alot of championship clubs are interested in signing him
The Saints are also interested in Micheal Tonge, Fraser Forster and Sam Vokes On Season Long loans other players are expected to join in the coming weeks

 

09 Jul 2010 21:27:06
Why is everyone now saying SAF is looking for new CDM when we have fletcher and carrick can play that roll as well plus we have pogba coming through the ranks and SAF always likes his CDM to come through the ranks or be british/irish so they understand the way we play i think SAF will give berbatof another season because he is world class but just bad dip in form. only player coming will be attacking midfielder and i think it will be OZIL as SAF has been tracking him for awhile plus maybe a couple of young players if price is right .. look through our squad and it's very strong and we already got 2 new players and new CM mahe it 3 can't see anymore than that unless vidic leaves which i can, t see spainish clubs in far more trouble than EPL one's and new rules means no more bail out's ..

 

09 Jul 2010 21:28:28

09 Jul 2010 21:31:58
What a joke to suggest Ashley Cole would even contemplate a move to Liverpool. I think the bloke can be a bit silly at times but he is not deluded. He is one of the world's best left backs and if he left Chelsea it would be for Real Madrid or Barcelona, he has not got to prove himself to anybody here. As for Torres, I don't think he will come to the bridge but don't dismiss it out of hand. I feel he has had his head turned and possibly it has affected his performances at the world cup, reminiscent of Gerrard a few years back. Ozil must be bid for though as he is the type of player missing since Robben left. We have had no creativity for far too long.

 

09 Jul 2010 21:34:27

LIVERPOOL FC RUMOURS
GK:Cavalieri is leaving and nobody knows who will be his replacement . It could mean a promotion for David Martin.
RB:Degen looks like he will leave, this probably means that Stephen Darby may be promoted. Micah Richards could be signed for 8 million to cover for right back and centre back.
CB:Skretl looks like the only centre back to be leaving for 8 million. Richards may be his replacement with Ayala being promoted.Taylor has been linked though.
LB:With Aurelio gone a left back is needed.Insua has been linked with a move away.This may or may not happen.Aurelio may resign.Others linked are Warnock, Figueroa and Bridge.
RM:Rodriguez is staying.Shaun WrightPhillips has been linked in a 6 million deal. SWP will not join Spurs as they already have Lennon.So LFC looks the only place for him with Man City wanting him off the wage bill.
CM:Lucas and Mascherano are leaving.Rumoured replacements are Cambiasso, van der Vaart, Parker , Gilberto Silva , Annan and Barry.Gerrard will stay.Joe Cole is 50:50.
LM:Riera looks likely to leave for about 8 million or as part of the Honda deal. Babel could leave as part of the Ashley Young deal or 9 million.Rumoured players are Ashley Young, Keisuke Honda , Arda Turan and Bryan Ruiz.
ST:Torres will stay. Llorente could join as could Asamoah Gyan. {editor's note – Martin has already left.}

Regarding the Ledley saga, i've heard that he's headed back home without signing for Celtic is because of a family issue, illness or whatever. Dermot desmond supposedly gave him the use of his private jet to get back home as soon as possible.

Also, looks like i could be right regarding the Bellamy/Keane situation after what Harry has came out with.
Campbell deal is still on, Sunderland are interested, but it's thought he has already given his word to Lennon.

Story about Bullard's tyres & ice throwing incident are completely unfounded. Manager from the Hilton in Glasgow has denied all knowledge of any "mobs" being in the bar at any time..ever lol!!

09 Jul 2010 20:51:37
Milan Jovanovic has Finally signed !! he will be a good signing.
Mascherano definitly leaving 35 million to barcelona
money to spend will be around 6070 million due to other departures.
Transfers coming in are :
SWP £6 million
Stephen Taylor £5 million
Figueroa £5 million
Ireland £7 million
Crouch £9 million
The SWP and Stephen Taylor and Figueroa are 90%95% close to happening but crouch and ireland are just speculation

 

09 Jul 2010 20:51:54
Hargreaves continuing injury woe may force Fergie to consider signing a long term relpacement for him as there are no natural holding midfielders in the squad. Gibson doesn't have the positional awareness, Carrick can't tackle, Anderson is a "flair" attacking midfielder or supposed to be being played out of position and Fletcher is a box to box midfielder.

Targets are likely to be young and very budget, names that come to mind are Stefan Defour (remember Fergie's letter to him at Christmas?) and the Madrid Diarras (probably Mamadou as he is cheaper and would allow for Pogba to progress). But my outside bet/hope is on Anthony Annan of Rosenberg and Ghana. He has 18 months on his contract is 23 and has been highly impressive on the biggest stage. Just my two cents. Here is hoping Hargo can get back to full fitness.

The Hooper deal is as good as done the hold up is that Scthorpe are trying to devalue his loyalty bonus,
Scthorpe are basing it on the initial down payment, Hoopers agent wants it based on the overall fee,

ABSOLUTE BULL NICE TRY.. IF CURTIS DAVIES WENT FOR $10 MILL THEN WE WILL SELL DORRANS FOR AT LEAST$15MILL AND NOT TO WEST HAM. HE WOULD BE A GOOD MOVE FOR MAN U WHO WE SEEM TO OFF LOAD MOST OF OUR DECENT PLAYERS TOO ANYWAY..

09 Jul 2010 14:56:31So now were paying 2 million plus tonge ( worth £500 to £850 ) and Kitson who we paid 5 million for ? for a player who doesn't seem to want to come ? or we could go to tribunal and pay you 3 million ! When it looks like he, s taking the bigger wage at Celtic and 2 team football . Just wish he would decide what to do , he is realing annoying fans now from all concerned

Well he is goin to a club that's bigger european football and a chance to win trophies at celtic and has a chance to play in one of the biggest derbys in the world

Liverpool linked with a 8 mil pound move for juve forward David Trezuget. As a liverpool fan i think this would be a good move but not at 8 mil maybe swap for riera. Source is caughtoffside

Roy Hodgson will bid 4.5 million for Matt Taylor and 10 million for Fernando Llorente. I am in the Liverpool academy and this will come true.

Matt Taylor can not even get a start for Bolton how can he command a fee of 4.5m

But then again Liverpool are used to paying over the top for crap players

 

09 Jul 2010 20:06:18
Just out of interest is Gary Hooper worth all this hype from Leeds, Celtic, Boro and now Blackpool apparently? Jermaine Beckford has played 237 career games and scored 137 goals and Gary Hooper has played 204 and scored 78. Leeds turned down 1.5 million pound bids from Newcastle and since he has signed for Everton who finished in the top eight of the premiership and played in Europe. Is Gary Hooper worth 2 to 3 million? Comments please posters you aswell editor? {editor's note – I have been asking the same question myself, I haven't seen much of Hooper to judge him.}

With the arrival of our new manager mixu im happy to say that us in the youth and reserves are happy to train with the senior players . Some of the players including danny invincible have been aggrivated by the fact a few of us have been considered by the new manager for the first teamduring our preseason matches . Guillame Beuzilen (spelling) was at training today and he's looking good . Also the manager spoke about some new talent from the lower leagues in england and scotland being intorduced before the end of preseason im good friends with scott anson who used to play with me here at killie who is now playing at annan athletic scott said that mixu was interested in bringing him back to us also scott included the names of leigh griffiths and turkish winger serhat akin (spelling) i don't know who he is editor can you tell me so i can inform the boys on monday ? .

Also hibs' danny galbraith said that stokes is moving to celtic at the end of the season but the deal isn't 100% yet . {editor's note – Akin has just joined Karlsruhe after being released by his previous team in Turkey. I doubt very much he will be moving anywhere else.}

Great news for liverpool fans everywhere roy has got gerard, kujtand torres to stay he has set up four signings RUIZ of Twente, figuerio of WIGAN Cambiasso of INTER AND FINALLY THE BACKup striker we have all been shouting for Ashley Young who will interchange with Jovanavic and Ruiz left and centre

 

09 Jul 2010 20:19:15
Forget all the attacking options for lfc , I think they need some defenders , left back and centre half , once Torres and gerard stays then I would look at defence , any rumours of defenders on hodgsons list ??

 

09 Jul 2010 20:24:47
Any saints rumours???

To the surprise of many, Doncaster Rovers will, allegedly, lose Sam Hird to Leeds. Hird is rumoured to want more first team football and a source speculated that he does not figure in the coming seasons plans at Doncaster in other than a "back up" capacity.
Rumours of Brian Stock leaving for Southampton are untrue, and the Doncaster warchest is apparently "far from anywhere near empty" according to the source. A premiership centre back will be signing next week from a tophalf premier team in a deal which will also see a "very well known" loanee midfielder from the same club travel with him for the season.
Doncaster have dealt well in the market this summer and, in addition to the above, a possible further midfielder slot is being pursued.

To the guy who posted the Celtic 11.
That line up is utter nonsense.
Bellamy and Nick Shorey ?

To the guy that posted about Gatuso only visiting Rangers .. spot on. Rino is a regular in Glasgow, Robbie Keane is/was a regular at Celtic Park. People jump to conclusions and normally post garbage on this site.

Ive heard McGeady, O'Dea, McCourt and Samaras are all England bound by end of July. Hooper and Ledley will sign, Bullard isn't happy with wages being offered. I heard Celtic were trying to pull a payasyouplay type deal. His overall wage would be based on appearence bonuses

09 Jul 2010 20:32:35
I know i said king kenny would take over at liverpool and was wrong but i did say riquelme and cole would sign. i still think they will. i also like the idea of aurelio returning under hodgson, s tenure. sell mascherano the renegade and bring back the people's favourite xabi alonso. we'll be back. form is temporary, class is permanent. YNWA JFT96.

Sorry Liverpool fans but Torres will sign for Chelsea.

Mystic Meg is that you?.because you're the only person who can see inside Torres' head right now from your basement. With all the rumours and wishlists that go around on these pages it's a wonder that any club needs to employ a scouting system. Maybe chairmen need to take a new approach and take heed to the inane dribblings of some spotty, social inadequate who plays too much Football League Manager. It seems that Spurs, Chavski and Man Ure fans all know who Liverpool can afford and who their targets should be and which players will be on the move. Apparently flashinthepan glory, a few spare pounds or delusions of grandeur entitles the moronic masses to spout rubbish as fact.

Now that the facts are out of the way, here are a couple of items of conjecture that I have heard. Roy Hodgson is using the Figueroa story as a smoke screen and his number 1 priority for left back is actually Matt Taylor from Bolton. Mascherano will leave for Inter (no surprise there) but the deal will consist of Esteban Cambiasso and Rene Krhin going the other way in a straight swap with no money involved at all. Two weeks ago I posted that Liverpool were interested in Bryan Ruiz but it has now developed that the player is having second thoughts because he wants to play in next season's Champions League as he reckons it could lead to a move to Real Madrid in the future.

 

09 Jul 2010 19:46:41
Any berwick rangers rumours

 

09 Jul 2010 19:47:11
"With the £25m from the Mascherano deal a £25m bid for James Milner will be lodged (£12.5m upfront, with the remaining £12.5m over the next 24months)"

Sucks it'd fail. We want 30m, no less than that. City are the only team we'll sell too because we want Ireland. If not he's staying. 25m + Babel could do it though (Babel is not worth the 1015m you idiot Pool fans think he is).

 

09 Jul 2010 19:47:22
I am a celtic fan and just like everyone out there know that we can't get keane on loan. so no the only option we have is bellamy on a year loan, but the news that's been going around for a few days now is skippys on his way back part of the mcmanas deal, also celtic have had contract talks wae jose concalves, they were waiting on campbells desicion.

My friend is very close to Joe Cole, I was told two months ago that Joe Cole will be signing for Arsenal and it will be announced after the world cup. I have been told he won't move to Liverpool as it is too far away from his family, he reckons Man. U are on the way down (he doesn't trust the glaizer set up), Tottenham arent guaranteed champions league football this season and he doesn't get on with Harry Rednapp. Its been a done deal since well before the world cup.

All 100% true fact

well you and your mate know sweet fk all cause he has just signed for spurs, harry got crouch, azza, jd, dawson, ledley and even his nephew lamps to talk him into the move ahead of arse

Darren ambrose wants to stay with palace and will sign a new deal the new owners thrash out by Monday.

No word on nathaniel clyne but my sources assure me he'll be starting the season for palace.

Jordan from burnley is all but done, the delay being caused by a freak traffic accident and I've heard that palace have had an increased undisclosed bid for owen garvan accepted.

Clinton morrison is due a medical on Monday afternoon for palace but with stern john being released another striker is needed and I'm informed that gb is prep. a bid for Simeon Jackson although he may face competition from championship new boys millwall and Norwich, however he favours to stay in London and palace is his preferred destination but money may be an object.

Last bit of info I have I'd that lee hills will be leaving to barnsley, a little odd after he's been injured for months.

That's all for now I'll keep you updated.

I got talking to Neil Lennon When he was in Lurgan with Paddy McCourt and a few others and he said that He has Spoke to Aiden McGeady about staying and Aiden McGeady says he is going to wait and see how we go in the 1st European game of the year. He also said Liam Boyce was coming in on trail and he did. He said he is working very hard to get Robbie Keane back on the books but he also realised that in order to get players like Keane he has to sell and i can Promise all celtic Fans Paddy McCourt will not be leaving Celtic as he has a major part to play this year.

Stoke City Rumours:

Just a few that have been doing the rounds, not saying they are going to happen before anyone kicks off on their keyboard! And obviously they won't all happen as there are quite a few. They are just what I have heard.

Ins:
David Bentley (possibly loan deal) love to see him, need a right winger and pulis would get him back to best.
Jermaine Jenas
David Wheater
Carlton Cole Hope this is true
Roman Pavlyuchenko
Jamie O'Hara Again hopeful
Joe Ledley Possibly off to Celtic
Mark Noble
Robert Koren
Daniel Sturridge (loan)
Emile Heskey Do not want to see him at Stoke
Alan Hutton
Jermaine Pennant Pulis could get him back to best
Isaac Vorsah
Paul Koncheskey
Sol Bamba
Kieron Dyer
Andy Carrol Doubtful as he wants to stay at Newcastle
Adrian Colunga
Alan Smith
Abdeslam Ouaddou
Papa Bouba Diop
Jon Walters
Kenwyne Jones
Mevlut Erdinc
Jordan Rhodes
Charlie Austin
Scott Loach cannot see why as he would be 3rd choice behind Sorenson and Begovic

Outs:
Dave Kitson can see him going to Bristol City, back with Steve Coppell
James Beattie sad to see him go if he does, shame things couldnt be worked out
Carl Dickinson PNE, great at championship level
Tuncay possibly off to Germany, linked with Sunderland and Blackburn
Michael Tonge
Liam Lawrence sad to see him leave also
Ibrahima Sonko again maybe to Bristol City
Tom Soares
Andrew Davies

Done Deals
In:
Florent Cuvelier Free Portsmouth 17 year old Belgian International, apparently a very good prospect.
Out:
Steve Simmonsen Sheff Utd
Andy Griffin Reading
Amdy Faye Free Agent, linked with Leicester
Salif Diao Free Agent, offered duel coaching role at Stoke

Alot of names have been linked with the potters, personally hope to see a striker like Carlton Cole come in, a right winger, centre midfielder and a left back are most need.

Interesting to see what happens over the summer! ED just wondering if you had any news on Stoke, any thoughts on players linked? {editor's note – I don't have any thoughts on anything right now sorry mate, managed to get a touch of sunstroke today so I am struggling just to read through stuff at the moment.}

REFscott mcdonald £2mil middlesborough(already scored for rangers twice

What planet are you on,

1, He is die hard celtic fan
2, he signed with boro only in jan for £3.6m, so why would boro sell him for £2m
3, rangers are collecting irn bru bottles for cash
4, McDonald held his nose after he scored in an old firm game at ibrox because he knows the place is rotten and that was his message to the rangers support.
5. He knows he would be a target for endless abuse if he signed for rangers
6, He has unfinished business at Celtic thanks to mowbray.

The list goes on so stop kidding yourself on about these crazy posts.

 

09 Jul 2010 19:34:11
Joe cole has now signed for spurs, as i said the deal was done weeks ago, harry even got his nephew lamps to talk him in to the move ahead of the arse

now that is two out of three so far the only let down is the guti deal to blackburn

To the person who said chelsea will put bids in for kaka and torres whats your source m8 (i hope its true)

 

09 Jul 2010 19:40:48
Manchester United will Launch a 25million bid for German Star Mesut Ozil after the World cup. Balotelli will stay at Inter as will Sneijder. Benzema will stay at Real unless Berbatov leaves.

Van Der Sar
Neville Vidic Ferdinand Evra
Valencia Ozil Fletcher Nani
Rooney Hernandez

Chelsea will sighn Steven Pienarr and will end their summer spending.

Liverpool will keep Torres and Gerrard but sell Macherano for 22m. They will bring youth in or look for potential targets.

Man City will make a bid for James Milner whom will stay at Villa. Torres will stay and Liverpool. City may get a young defender or maybe Balotelli.


Arsenal will sighn a highley rated young player and will battle for Joe Cole. Fabragas is staying.


Rumours:
City to bid for Drogba = no
Chelsea for Torres = no
City for Ozil = no
Chelsea for Ozil = no
Arsenal for Ozil = poss
United for Ozil = I see it
Suarez keen on United move = no
Real to bid for Evra = no
City to sighn Milner = poss but no.

For me if this all happens what i said at the top the table will be:

1. United or Chelsea
2. United or Chelsea
3. Arsenal
4. Man City
5. Liverpool
6. Tottenham

From 36 they could al;l be in different places. Who knows?

 

09 Jul 2010 19:45:10
Leeds are hopeful of signing a striker before tomorrow's departure to Solvakia. MOT

This could be hooper..I know you don't think it will but I follow this other website as well (www.newsnow.com) and if you follow the links to the leeds page it says that hooper has been left out of scthorpes squad for their friendly this weekend increasing speculation that he may be joining a new club being Leeds or Celtic!!

Liverpool to make a 6m bid for Juventus striker David Trezeguet.

Lovett32

 

09 Jul 2010 18:57:41
Apparently Chelsea are going to offer £50m for Torres off of Liverpool, which would allow them to sell DROGBA to Man City for around £35m as Torres is the better striker. This would stop City from buying Ibrahimovic from Barca which would stop them from buying Fabregas from Arsenal. Gourcuff and Joe Cole would then not join Arsenal. That leaves Cole a few options:

1. Join Tottenham as you are practically handed first team Champions League football.
2. Join Manchester United and lower your wage demand to actually win things.
3. Join AC Milan and have a different experience where you will also win the occasional trophy.

If Cole were to go to United then that would drop a bid for Wesley Sneijder which they are planning as Cole is about the same player as Sneijder. Inter most probably wouldn't have sold him anyway. If this was to happen then the bid for Mario Balotelli would be back on for a battle between United and City of Manchester. That would raise Inter's funds and I imagine that they would use that to buy Mascherano off of Liverpool. Then Hodgeson is boned.

Then Gerrard will join Madrid as he will have the ability to win things there. This will cause Hodgeson to then buy Ashley Young off of Aston Villa and whoever else he likes because LOOK AT THE TRANSFERS THAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED, HE WOULD HAVE LOADS OF CASH TO SPLASH. I imagine he would go for Suarez as a replacement for Torres as he is a natural goalscorer. Maybe De Rossi for Mascherano and then GOURCUFF for Gerrard. Arsenal wouldn't take him so Liverpool will. Bordeuax after that I couldn't really see succeeding which is a shame considering I really, really like that team. Laurent Blanc is a saint for that club.

Honestly, if even the first transfer happens I will be shocked. But that could be the reaction. There's probably loads more I could tell you but I just can't be bothered to type it up.

Redeth.

All the guff about RANGERS signing this and that..

I stated bout a month and a half ago alot of stuff and the last part came to fruition today.

ALL OUT OF CONTRACT PLAYERS ON DECENT MONEY WONT GET NEW DEALS.

Rangers have 2million set aside for transfers, the bank will no allow any more than that.

Laugh it off if u want but wait till season kicks off and you can send your apologies.

Alan Gow has been released by Plymouth Argyle. It is expected that he will return up north to move back to scotland, where it is expected he will join Hibs , where he spent last season on loan. With the sale of Ashley Barnes , expect Peter Reid to want to spend the cash on another striker after getting rid of Barnes and Gow. Okazaki , the Japanese forward , is widely expected to join in a move funding by the Japanese owners. Peter Reid is also looking to bring in another goalkeeper , most probably a keeper on loan from a Premier league club.

This should be close to the team should all goes to plan :


Larrieu


Duguid R.Johnson N'Gala Bhasera


Noone Fletcher D.Johnson Bolasie


Patterson Okazaki

Whoever said this:Equally, Gerrard's value will depend partly upon his potential resale value, and the length of contract will be dictated by his age (30). He may be worth £30m to Liverpool as a merchandising clothes horse, but would not be worth anywhere near that elsewhere.

is an idiot to be frank. why would liverpool gerrard for anything less than £30million if he is worth £30million to them?

 

09 Jul 2010 18:32:38
Ok, first things first. My source has jst confirmed that SAF is "not bidding for any other DM" after the Hargo incident. S.Khedira has been a long term target in that position but that's it, Fergie isn't gonna push the panic button any time soon, even if he fails to get Khedira.
The priority signing is still an AM. The Sneijder deal is "still not off" (believe me, far from it) as there will be a series of final negotiations after the world cup. If that doesn't go well, Ozil is the next target and the only problem there is the asking price. The bid that SAF has in mind is close to 22m. Benzema deal ir stuck as both parties are disagreeing on the swapcash front. A formal inquiry has been made n the 1st bid would be made around the 15th.
And here is a surprising piece of info. SAF is lining up Balotelli for a "different" type of role. Any idea what that means?
Other players under consideration are: Sanchez, Barrera, Muller, Hazard and Diego.

 

09 Jul 2010 18:34:28
Who ever wrote this please tell me where you got this from:

Rangers to sign Asamoah Gyan on loan until end of the season to strengthen in Europe. Physical power and eye for goal will help him fill Kris Boyd's boots.

Right i know rangers can buy players but after the world cup im sure gyan would be worth more than 5 million so the only players rangers will be signing is free agents or loans.

 

09 Jul 2010 18:42:53
Ski and city fans alike, as per previous seasons that ski and city bid for torres, not going to happen. He simply does not want to play for you lot or any other prem team, get it into your numb skulls and save yourself the blushes.

Everyone who keeps saying that Liverpool are skint keep forgetting the fact that most transfer fees are not paid up front but are paid over time. With that in mind and the fact that Liverpool is expected to be sold by Aug it means that Liverpool probably have a decent few quid to spend.

Hopefully Liverpool Arrivals

Turan (kids a genius and loves the club)
Jovanovic (done)
Young (overated but hes young and English)
Ruiz (young and talented)
Bridge (English)

Would make for a good title challenge

(Ed what you think? I know that you are a Liverpool fan, so who would you like us to buy) {editor's note – I don't want any of those players apart from maybe Turan to be honest. Though Ruiz I just don't know enough about to form an opinion. I don't really see the need for any more signings, it is time to give the youth a chance and put the money towards a new stadium instead.}

Torres to chelsea for £30m? Dream on, if Ronaldo is worth £80m, he should be at least worth £60m even after a poor world cup!
Anyway on to LFC rumours:
Joe Cole: 50/50 between us and Spurs (wouldn't be particularly bothered is he chooses Spurs, but then again would be a great addition to the squad!)
Milan Jovanovic: Done deal, very pleased about this.
Ashley Young: £14m + Babel or £21m
Ruiz: £13m
Steven Taylor: £6m
Maynor Figueroa: £6m
Arda Turan: £12m
David Trezeguet: £8m

I Expect 2/3 of these to happen, but before you go slating me remember these are rumours.

My friend is very close to Joe Cole, I was told two months ago that Joe Cole will be signing for Arsenal and it will be announced after the world cup. I have been told he won't move to Liverpool as it is too far away from his family, he reckons Man. U are on the way down (he doesn't trust the glaizer set up), Tottenham arent guaranteed champions league football this season and he doesn't get on with Harry Rednapp. Its been a done deal since well before the world cup.

All 100% true facts.



The statement above couldnt be further from the truth. Joe Cole was keen on joining Man U but his wage demands are a joke. I personally don't rate him at all and i think his agent must be on drugs. Since coming back from injury hes looked slow and aged and i think he will be injured within six months. What is your view ed ? is he worth what he demands ?

Manchester United are preparing a 14m bid for Miguel Veloso ive also been informed there will be 2 more bids but i don't know who the players are ? Does anyone know who the other 2 players could be ?

INFOMANIA {editor's note – I don't rate Joe Cole at all, never have done either. He is certainly not worth the ridiculous wage demands his agent is making.}

"Young to liverpool was practically a done deal last year but Young gave it 1 more year at villa.Villa not matching his ambition he will be at liverpool next year, no babel swap as roy will play him with torres."

Pay up the 3050m and we'll talk. :) But O'Neill JUST CAME OUT AND WANTS TO STRENGTHEN. You have absolutely 0 chance of getting him. Hodgson said English so they pick the 2 best English players in Young and Milner. Genius Media but these 2 are out of the price range Hodgson would want to spend on 1 player.

LFC THE IF AND BUTS?

Gerrard to Real Madrid 35M (paper talk)
Masherano To INTER/BARCA 35M (almost guaranteed)

Values vary depending on what ya read.

If any of the above comes despite the fact we don't want Steve G to go, after 12 years service, if he said he wanted to go, i wouldn't have a problem with it , but i would have to see if we could get GAGO, VDV, and DRENTHE from Real Madrid and use the other money from Masherano to see if BENZEMA was interested?

Of course the above is hypothetical but with those R Madrid available its worth asking if the offer comes in from Real Madrid.

If/When Masherano goes i wouldn't be looking for any swap but to hopefully invest the same money into the squad.

Even the Juve Trez is worth a punt? I def cannot see Torres going for less than 60mil+ , so all ya CHELSEA fans can put in what bid ya like? doesn't mean cause ur CHELSEA we accept ! He signed a 5 year contract.

Blackpool are looking into a double swoop on Wolves. As mentioned in the press again this week, they are very close to luring EBanks Blake away from Molyneux for around 1.5M, but they are also enquiring about the availability of Micheal Kightly.

In reply to this:

Joe ledley will not be signing for celtic.

his mother is not well and it has hit home how far away he will be from his family

the best part is, he will sign for cardiff where his mum and dad attend every single game whether he is fit or not

ledley is a bluebird and realises what the club means to him and his family money is not the driver for him but it appears to be so for his agent who he has fallen out with

his agent will get a huge signing on fee and has started to slate cardiff which he is not happy about

funny how hes just completed his medical at celtic and agreed a four year deal. Some people should really watch sky sports new.

Pienaar's plan i was told was have agood world cup and hoped to sign for spurs or arsenal. But after meeting with Moyes in s. africa and after having a poor tournament hes close to signing a 3 year deal worth £55k57k a week.

arteta is a cert to stay along with Jags with Arteta signing a new deal. Heard nothing about Manu rejoining only after same players Donovan, Ben Arfa and if Cordoza price was £15m Moyes would bid but highly unlikely. Dufour from Standard is another Moyes has his eye on.

Liverpool Transfer Activity:

Hodgson has been given in the region of £20m to spend and told ALL can be spent in the summer with up to a further £15m in January, providing the club is in the top 5 at that time Quite an incentive This is without any outside investment or a new buyer He will also receive ALL transfer funds from players sold, which he expects to be as follows:
1. Benyoun Chelsea £6m
2. Mascherano Inter £25m
3. Riera Napoli £5m
4. Insua Forientina £3m
5. Cavalieri Inter £5m
6. Degan Hamburg £2m

So overall spending funds of: £66m
Coming in:
1. Cole Free
2. Barry Man City £10m
3. Crouch Spurs £10m
4. Richards Man City £12m
5. James Portsmouth Free
6. Bridge Man City £5m
7. Van Der Vaart Real Madrid £15m
8. Jananovic Free (confirmed).

Also expect some very exciting youngster to be given a chance to shine, in the form of: Ayala, Pacheco, Amoo, Della Valle, Mavinga, Shelvey and Kelly All of which have the potential to be excellent / world class players.

On the coaching side Expect to see Sami Hypia return (which will be amassive lift for all the players, as he was hugely popular and a great professional) Dalglish will be given sole control over the youth set up, including signing the best 'British' younsters plus Ian Rush will be brought back to coach the forwards.

Personally, I believe Hodgson will prove to be a fantastic appointment The talent is at the club already, and if he can perform his normal trick of getting that little bit extra from all the players, the likes of Babel, Lucas and Ngog could really shine.

'Chelsea are set to put a cheeky bid of £30m for Torres!!

Think we should respond and offer £6m for Ashley Cole.or this that being a bit generous?

Your offer would be a bit generous for Cole considering the baggage he is carrying.'

Two things 1. Torres shirt sales and merchandise alone are worth £30m per year re. world wide sales

2. Don't joke about Ashley Cole to Liverpool Heard a whisper this could be on the cards He wants out of London but does not want to go abroard cheeky £20m offer on the way !

In the last hour Barcelona have said that they will accept 29m for Ibrahimovic, they are desperate to offload him to bid for either Cesc, Torres or even both!

Editor am i the only bloke who thinks berbatov is much better than Ibrahimovic and he is being quoted as leaving for half the price? Nearly the same age and similar in styles of play although Berbatov is a much better all round player than him, am i wrong? {editor's note – I don't think many people in the UK rate Zlatan to be honest, I am not sure if Britain is missing something everyone else has seen or if he is just a lazy get who has been lucky to play for some great sides.}

Leicester City News:
Paulo Sousa has already started making his summer signings and has a big transfer budget to use after Milan Mandaric found new investment for the club from a trip abroad. Here are the players coming:

Miguel Vitor coming on a seasonlong loan from Benfica, a 21 year old portguese center back.

Darren Pratley for a fee of just above 1 million as he wants to reunite with Paulo Sousa and wishes to play in the Premier League and believes Leicester have a chance of doing so.

Marlon Harewood coming in as a free agent. He already lives in Leicestershire and would like to stay there so this is a good, easy move.

Sir Alex Ferguson does transfers on a list and preference basis.

Strikers:
1st choice: Villa (United put a bid but he was sold to Barcelona as he wanted to stay in Spain)
2nd choice: Benzema (made tentative enquiries, waiting to see if Real Madrid will sell him).
3rd choice: Edin Dzeko (Ferguson an admirer of Dzeko and would represent something different upfront for United who do not have a target man but United
4th choice: Mario Balotelli (Fiery Inter Milan player has plenty of talent and Ferguson wants to turn hi into new Ronaldo. But City interested and price may be too high at £30m or more)
5th choice: Luis Suarez (interested in move, but Ferguson tentative about deal)

Attacking/Creative Midfielder:
1st choice: J.Cole (wages were too high so United dropped interest in Cole)
2nd choice: Snjeider (staying at Inter Milan)
3rd choice: Ozil (after good world cup he has moved up Fergie's list. Expect a bid or enquiry next week)
4th choice: Van der Vaart (Real Madrid looking to offload midfielder but this would be Fergusons last resort).
5th choice: Thomas Muller (Unlikely to move from Bundesliga)

Defensive Midfielder (With Owen Hargreaves injured Ferguson will look for a new midfielder. He already had drawn up a list but it was not his priority. But with Hargreaves injury he will try and secure a new midfielder):
1st choice: Sami Khadeira (Good young player who has impressed at WC has gone to top of Fergusons list).
2nd choice: Lass Diara (if Mourinho wants to sell him United will try and sign him).
3rd choice: Cambiasso (Ferguson has been an admirer of Cambiasso for many years and with Inter looking to sign Mascherano Ferguson could be able to sign him).

One player from each category will definitely sign unless a new player becomes available or a change of mind from Ferguson. This is his official list given to David Gill.

MATE YOU HAVE NOT GOT A CLUE, BALOTELLI IS FIRST CHOICE YOU NUGGET, THEN ITS BENZEMA, DZEKO IS NOT EVEN ON THE LIST, DZEKO IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO PLAY FOR UNITED.

JOE COLE IS NOT ON THE LIST EITHER, UNITED ARE NOT INTERESTED IN HIM REGARDLESS OF WAGES, HE WANTS 100K A WEEK, WELL UNITED WERE OFFERING SNEIJDER 110K A WEEK SO STOP TALKING RUBBISH. HE TOO IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO PLAY FOR UNITED, HE IS GREEDY AND DISLOYAL SO WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT HIM? SNEIJDER IS FIRST CHOICE THEN ITS OZIL, AFTER THAT ITS BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD, HE MAY EVEN WAIT UNTIL NEXT SEASON TO TRY AND FIND SCHOLES' REPLACEMENT.

UNITED HAVE JUST TWO CANDIDATES FOR HARGREAVES POSITION, EITHER DEFOUR OR MORE LIKELY VELOSO, FERGIE IS A MASSIVE ADMIRER OF HIM! HES JUST TURNED 24, HE HAS A KILLER LONG SHOT, AND HE IS POWERFUL, HE WILL BECOME A 30M PLAYER AT UNITED NO PROBLEM.

EDITOR WOULD YOU SAY I AM TALKING SENSE? {editor's note – I am glad you brought up Defour, I have been trying to think of his name! I pretty much agree with you though I am not so sure about Veloso, I thought United had dropped their interest in him.}

Argyle have released alan gow from his contract so the scottish team who wants him can now by him so i imagine they couldnt afford a transfer fee steve maclean is the next likely to go he will probs stay in england though he has been told he can leave for free so weve paid of gow so maybe we do have money which i believe we do jimmy patterson and dj also look likely to go with patto going back to scotland and dj is wanted by derby preston doncaster, barnsley but is no longer wanted by bristol city and we are to bid for ryan harley from exeter, okazaki could also come in a record fee and andrew davies from stoke is also on the shortlist same as simon francis ex southend player is in talks with the club but has offers from other teams to.

Anyone noticed how Sir Alex is only 'bidding' and matching offers on players already with firm offers from other teams.

Karim Benzema
David Villa
Wesley Sneijder

If he wanted them he'd choose players not already committing themselves to other teams and exceed the current bid and go higher. Methinks he's just trying to keep fans happy and create the impression that Man Utd has the funds.

Notice how the players already signed (and who Man Utd keep referring to as proof of funds Chris Smalling, Javier Hernndez are young and probably are not for cash up front.

There's plenty of cover in the CM position with Michael Carrick, Anderson, Darron Gibson and Darren Fletcher. Expect only a cheaper (relatively speaking) attacking midfield option.

YaYa Toure cost City 24m (£20m). Champions League winner, international, playing for arguably the best side in the world. City have repeatedly had to pay way over the odds for players from much lesser clubs. How on earth then will Mascherano, a sulky nomad with a suspect temperament and on the back of an average season and World Cup, command a fee of £30m?
Equally, Gerrard's value will depend partly upon his potential resale value, and the length of contract will be dictated by his age (30). He may be worth £30m to Liverpool as a merchandising clothes horse, but would not be worth anywhere near that elsewhere.

You forget to mention with Toure that Man City are paying him an unbelievable and ridiculous £220k per week. I wonder why he went there?
As for their respective valuations, each players transfer value is dictated by the selling club. Toure was surplus to requirements at Barca with the development of Busquets, and the desire to bring in Fabregas or Mascherano. Yes Barca might well replace Toure with Masch. Perhaps they think Masch is the better player, hmm!
Anyway Masch is a key player at Liverpool and Argentina's captain (he had a decent world cup by the way). LFC are unwilling to sell him,
and so if they do they will expect to receive top dollar. You might only value him at £15m, but clubs will have to pay what LFC set as the asking price, after all Masch is contracted to Liverpool and it is their decision whether he is sold or not. It's the same with Gerrard and Torres, their asking prices will be £30m and £55m respectively, if clubs don't meet those valuations then they won't be leaving, simple as that.
Hopefully LFC will stand up to these three players and make it clear to them that it is the club that will dictate where they play their football next season, and not the other way round.

 

09 Jul 2010 17:12:16
Ed, in regards to Riquelme and West Ham: Gold and Sullivan refused to play the £50,000 a week he was demanding. They were offering £40,000 (I believe). Hence Riquelme is looking at other options before agreeing to the West Ham deal.

 

09 Jul 2010 17:12:45
Birmingham City vicechairman Peter Pannu says they want four more signings this summer.

But the club's chief negotiator stressed that they would not be held to ransom on transfer prices.

"There are still a few targets we are working on, " Pannu told the Birmingham Mail.

"We are hoping that the relevant clubs can agree on valuations that are reasonable and realistic. Prices being asked at present are crazy and do not reflect true value as we see it. If it comes to it, then we might have to be prepared to hold the money back to January."

We have what we have a good squad. But hopefully we will be in a position very soon to bring in two, three, maybe four new players."

Message to Neil Lennon .. Time to hunt Sol Campbell , its obvious he is not interested in playing for Celtic , he'd rather sign for any old club in England , he's 35 years old and well past his sell by date , time to move on , there are better, younger alternatives out there ie. Ivan Ramis from Real Mallorca , Kelvin Wilson and Sean St Leger who are eager to sign .

I am a Liverpool fan and would like to make a few comments.

I have noticed that a lot of people are saying we are going to buy a lot of players. IMPO I do not believe that there will be a lot of transfers in. Roy Hodgson will look for players to cover the immediate vital areas ie LB, LM. I also believe that we have enough players in the squad that will be able to give us some depth and if Roy is confident in giving some of the youngsters a chance he will.

The transfer that I do see happening will be Mascherano leaving. He as hinted that he has wanted to leave since last season.

Riera and Babel may be given the chance to show their potential and I hope that they do. I personally do not rate Ashley Young for £20m as I think, if he is as good as people make out Martin O'Neill would have proved that, a good example is James Milner.

I would like to see Wayne Bridge and Stephen Ireland come in as they will be cheaper from Man City due to them having to reduce their own squad and will become surplus to requirements. Also Micha Richards as a possiblility and have Glen Johnson at RW rather than RB.

What I do hope is that we do not bid for SWP or Gareth Barry. Barry had the opportunity to join us before and didn't.

If there are any other possibles I woild like to hear of them.

Whats all this talk of Melo and Veloso coming to Utd?

Melo is total rubbish who even Arsenal pulled out of a deal for 12 months ago and Veloso was close to a deal at Bolton last year so what massive increase in performances have propelled him to utds level?


Defour is the man Utd want and are still keeping tabs on. He is still recovering from his injury but my view is that he will be monitered till Jan them if he gets back to the level of before then a move will be made. Untill then Utd will use O'Shea, Carrick and a recovering Hargo till then.


Attacking options are abit low on experience so if any strikers outwith hernandez are coming in they would most likely have champs league experience of a few years at least

Mr Ed, rethis Ledley saga, the guy as you also agreed wants to sign for an EPL team, so that Cardiff can get compensation, the guy has being up to Glasgow on three occasions, to sus out the Celtic offer, why has'nt he signed?why the delay?is he doing a Sol Campbell and waiting to see if a better offer comes in?in terms of wages Celtic offered him a reported £25k/week, Stoke and West Brom refused to pay these wages for him!is there anybody else interested in him?what have you heard? {editor's note – I really don't know anymore than I have said, he was obviously impressed with what Celtic had to offer or he wouldn't have taken the family up for a look. The offer was obviously good enough to make him seriously reconsider his options, Celtic are offering more money and first team football. I would say myself that he is just taking some time to make what is the most important decision of his career – the wrong choice could kill his career stone dead but the right one could see him take a huge step forward. Plus he does still have affection for Cardiff and they will miss out on a lot of money if he joins Celtic. It is no wonder he needs time really. I mean what would you do if you were him?}

Newspapers in Scotland today Walter Smith says 9 of his 18 first team squad are for sale, as they are going into the last year of their contracts and Rangers can't give them what they would want to resign.
So expect the same as last year no signing unless someone is sold first and then players of a lesser quality than what they have.
Players who can can go are Neil Alexander, Lee McCulloch, Kenny Miller, Andy Webster, Andrius Velicka, Sasa Papac, Kevin Thomson and Danny Wilson. David Weir has only a one year contract also.
There are none of the usual rumours going about at all.
Not a good sign.
If Rangers can win 3 in a row it will nothing short of a miracle.

Arsenal Transfer News:

Sky sports website is this morning repoeting that Arsenal have switched there Goalkeeping search to Samir Handanovic (hope this is true as he is only 25 and already quality), the report goes on to say Udinese are in no financial state to refuse a substantial bid for the slovakian.

Other News: 1 more Centre Back coming in:

Serdar Tasci (£12m), Douglas Texiera (£7.35m) or Rafik Hallliche (£4m)

Joe Cole could join, but could just as easily go somewhere else. Lastly I keep hearing about Kevin Prince Boateng, who admittedly had a good world cup but I would be suprised (anythin to add ed or anything on what I have said?)

Kevin Prince Boateng, in my opinion does a lot of running and nothing else, not the best at taking or finishing chances created for him ..a bit like Nicklas Bendtner..who apparently rated himself in the worlds top 5 strikers before the world cup..i think he needs a bit of a reality check..

 

09 Jul 2010 16:50:30
To the guy who wrote

"I've just read an article saying Rangers will listen to offers for 8 players out of contract next year, these players are, Alexander, Webster, Wilson, Papac, McCulloch, Thomson, Miller & Velicka, Walter Smith has said he can't afford to give them a new/better contract & along with the possibility of selling Bougherra, Davis & McGregor this doesn't sound good for Rangers fc, infact, i think this could be the beginning of the end for them because if they can't afford to give new contracts for those players, what standard of player will they bring in, if any "

Part true.. Smith has said that he currently cannot offer players new contracts as there is a strict business plan in operation however, He is adamant that Rangers do not need to sell, Davis, Bougherra, Wilson, Thompson are integral to rangers and will not be let go cheaply.
Fact of the matter is last Winter Celtic over did it with bringing in new faces that, with exception to keane, haven't been tested at a big Club.. Looks like they are making the same mistake. Smith is a little more shrood and will only sign a player if he can see a benefit to the team, which offers value for money, he also said he won't bring in loan players as the reserve team deserve a chance to break through, and this year looks like the year for that with Wilson, Fleck, Little, Shinnie and McMillan all featuring more this season.

Expect Three signings at Ibrox at the most

A forward (Possibly Goodwillie)
A winger (Possibly Conway or Swanson.. I prefer Swanson)
A left back (Goncalves)

All in all, we should have a settled unit of players that know how to win. Celtic again are going for the rash approach by linking themselves to everyone that's available and bringing in players who don't have the winning mentality or players who haven't played for a club the size of Celtic before.

Comrades!

@09 Jul 2010 13:10:23 ".. pave the way for McGeady to move to villa next week."

This is true. I reported this on here approximately 2 weeks ago. McGeady will be a direct replacement for Milner who in turn is Manchester bound (not sure whether it's City or United, but definately Manchester). I know this because as I stated then, McGeady has dropped his agent and is now handled by the same agent that does Carragher and a few others, in readiness for his move to the EPL. As with most things, it's not 100% till the paperwork is signed, sealed and delivered, but at the moment that is the plan and all parties concerned are in agreement and the paperwork is currently being put together. McGeady's transfer fee will be in the region of 7.5M. Celtic fans will scream he's worth more than that but the reality is that he isn't. He is untried in the EPL and has a bit of an offpitch discipline problem.

Stories that appeared that he was under consideration by us (Liverpool) date back to Rafa who was interested about 18 months ago. Stories linking him with Birmingham are entirely false.

Also, Arsene Wenger is keen to get Adam Matthews in and won't mind loaning out two of his young stars to a club with Premiership potential.

Besides, a contact of mine at St. David's Hotel in Cardiff has told me that two players from Arsenal have been booked in for a week, and that they may be back for a 'much longer stay'.

Its a well known fact that Jay Simpson has been released by Arsenal.


where on earth have you heard we released simpson? don't be a donk. he has a year left and will either be SOLD or sign a new long term contract. pre season will decide

Fabio Aurelio will be offered the chance to return to Liverpool by Roy Hodgson as long as he can prove his fitness. Hodgson wants to strengthen the left back position Insua is not leavinghe adds to the homegrown quota at LiverpoolFigueroa, Bridge and Taiwo are all targets to strengthen. Javier Mascherano is leaving for either Inter or Barcawhoever puts the best package togethermost likely from Inter. £25m and Rene Krhin will be enough to take him to the San Siro. Barcelona will not offer this muchwhilst replacing Yaya Toure with Nigel De Jong as part of the Zlatan Ibrahimovic transfer to Man City. Back to Liverpool, an £80k p/w contract has been offered to Joe Cole, a £50k p/w contract has also been offered to JUAN ROMAN RIQUELME! I too am shocked! With the £25m from the Mascherano deal a £25m bid for James Milner will be lodged (£12.5m upfront, with the remaining £12.5m over the next 24months)

Rumours that Mark Robins has pulled off a new signing for Barnsley FC are out. He has been seen in the new Ramada Encore hotel at the edge of Barnsley punching his fist in the air after a lengthy conversation on the telephone.
It could have been him completing a new signing or he could have just ordered the Chefs Special for all the lads from Jalsa Tandoori.

Forster signing should be announced today, Tusday at the lastest. No more players will be leaving Burnley for a fee, but two younger players will join a league two team (not sure of the player's or team yet). Brian Laws wants some of the youth to shine, so don't expect many more transfers.

Forget any talk of Liverpool signing big players for 2 reasons:
They have nothing to offer big players (no Champions League, not much money)
It's not Roy's style to make extravagant signings.

Keeping Torres and Gerrard is the most important thing for Liverpool at this moment. Mascherano has requested a transfer and will go for £2030mil. Apart from that Roy will strengthen the side with several smaller signings, mainly British.

SWP (£6mil) 50% chance
Joe Cole (free) 20% chance
Taylor (£58mil) 30% chance
A. Young (1525mil) 10% chance
Van Der Vaart (part exc.) 30% chance
Turan (£812mil) 20% chance
Klose (free) 5% chance

My thought out opinions.

Taylor to Everton, possibly I have heard that his agent is trying to get him away from the toon because of the way he was treated by club over Carroll incident. Carroll may be an idiot but taylor is no angel big headed gobshe just like Kieran Dyer. Treats the reserves and youngsters like scum. He is over rated but could do well at another club. Houghton wants him to stay and Carroll is going to be in prison mid season anyway. Club will let him go for £6m £8M.

And to all u people who think that Gerrard and Torres will leave Liverpoolu r 110% wrong.
Gerrard will die a Liverpool player.
Torres will never go to another premier league club and no club other than Real Madrid can afford him right now and Torres will never join them.

 

09 Jul 2010 15:26:55
Editor i know your a liverpool fan but this takeover and 15th july thing is tedious mate! why on earth would bidding start on a particular date it aint an auction ?! im a spurs fan so correct me if im wrong but before gillet and hicks came liverpool struggled to find a buyer then and you were in a much healthier state then to. so why would bidding start on that date? surely if your up for sale now then potential buyers can bid now but i think that there aint no one serious yet to bid. i do know its getting boring though! transfer rumours are what this sites about but not takeovers! when someone bids for your club surely we will findout in the media like last time. what do you think ed ? {editor's note I am bored of the takeover thing myself, but it IS an auction, and you are wrong about the state of the club. It has been improved in the time that H&G have been there, that should tell you something about just how bad things were before they bought it!}

ED it's not an auction per se but rather due process, i.e. the Information Memorandum has been circulated to parties who expressed an interest and signed a confidentiality agreement. Those parties will now be conducting preliminary financial due diligence and there will be deadline to submit an opening bid possibly 15th July, I have no idea the sellers will then narrow down to a shortlist of buyers. There will then be a period of further diligence following which (effectviely a beauty parade) a preferred buyer will be chosen. It will then take a further number of weeks to finalise legal and commercial due diligence as well as more financial diligence. The legal contracts will also be drawn up and negotiated during this period. If things go smoothly (when do they ever?!), a deal could be done by the end of August. In my view and experience (being a corporate finance lawyer) it is unlikely things will be tied up by then if the bidding is only starting now.

On Hodgson he is a yes man and easy and cheap to get rid off. I fully expect that he has a low/no compensation clause in his contract should a new buyer want to bring in his own man. That is exactly King Kenny was never considered for the post as it would be suicidal for the new buyers to come in and get rid of KK even before he has had a proper chance at the job. With Hodgson, that will not be the case as most fans will want a big high profile manager in place and will wave Hodgson goodbye without issue!

Transfers for Liverpool Gerrard will stay. Torres will stay. Masch £25m to Inter/Barca.

Turan, Mata, Banega etc were all Benitez's target and will not be coming in.

Ashley Young bid been rejected and MoN doesn't want to sell. That;s over.

I really don't know if Arsenal are just keeping their options open just in case or if they have moved on and given up on the Aussie.}

In reply to this:
"Shweinstieger, muller, podolski all staying in germany they believe the belive bundesliga to be strongest league due to look how far bayern got in CL and how early the english teams got knocked out then you look internationally how much better they were than england.theyve all said england team is just full of ego's so why would they move to these clubs were players with egos play the big i am and do sod all!
Ozil is only one going anywhere and that will be spain everyone wait and see probs whu ballack went back leverkusen for cheap aswell they love and prefer playing football in germany!"

You mean the same Bayern team whose firstchoice team contains a grand total of 3 germans? Ballack went back to Germany because Chelsea refused to give him a contract as he has been carried by the rest of the team for 2 years. No other top club in all of Europe would even consider signing him now.

Ozil WILL join either Utd or Arsenal depending on how Utd's bid for Sneijder and Barca's bid for Cesc goes. Both have made bids for him in the past and his performances this month have only increased Wenger and Fergie's interest in him

To the responder Leeds have already 1.4 million (google it) for Hooper, spent c.600k on Collins, there is money there to spend for Leeds, given that there's no way that the club would be spending half their transfer budget on Collins.

Leeds united:Gary hooper seen traning at thrope arch this morning you heard it here first

Leeds will no be spending 3 millions this summer on one player, our Budget is around the million pound mark

we don't spend to much money on transfer fees
surely by Leeds signings so far you tell that
Kasper Schmeical, Free
Paul Connolly, Free
Fede Bessone, Free
Billy Paynter, Free
Lloyd Sam, Free
Neill Collins 300k

other rumours in
Darel Russell, also free
Ali Fuseini, is on trial, also free
one of Scott Sinclair or Leroy Lita but if the asking price goes over 800k don't expect it to happen

My friend is very close to Joe Cole, I was told two months ago that Joe Cole will be signing for Arsenal and it will be announced after the world cup. I have been told he won't move to Liverpool as it is too far away from his family, he reckons Man. U are on the way down (he doesn't trust the glaizer set up), Tottenham arent guaranteed champions league football this season and he doesn't get on with Harry Rednapp. Its been a done deal since well before the world cup.

All 100% true facts.

Yorkielad, are you serious? Will you please make up more lies about how bullard is worried about coming to the crime ridden Glasgow! Yeah cos no crimes happen in London or hull both places he was happy to stay in. Truth is he is mulling over the deal but is in Scotland still as he is watching the golf. Good chance he will sign but nothing is concrete til announced.

WEST BROM NEWS!

JP the Chairman is buy more shares and the rumour goes he is not buying more players as he is in talks to sell the club. Why would he buy shares and tie up more money unless he wants to make more on the sale and make the books a better proposition for potential buyers. Money people out there have a better clue than me but interesting isn't it. Dorrans won't go to WEST HAM as they are relegation challengers like ud right now. We won't stay up unless we buy well..

This is yet another 'I know someone who works at',

but my aunty has been at the academy for years and has got news including proof that 2 reps from royal dubai (cousin of man city owners) have been to melwood and the academy 4 times over the past 2 months have done a deal which will see tom and george pickup £50mil each profit and will be announced on the 15th (thursday),

auntys a very reliable source who told me that robbie keane was on his way 3 weeks before he penned a deal and also told me on nando's arrival 1 week before the papers got hold.

she has also said that Rafa's house in the wirral will be kept an montse (rafa's wife) will be living there with the kidssources have told my aunty that we shouldnt say goodbye forever to rafa just yet, which would make sense as he has given £96,000 to hillsborough and a lot more to the rhys jones charity in order to speand the compensation he received of £3,000,000 on good terms so that he can always return back.

also David Amoo and Lauri Dalle Valle have been brought in to the first team, both are high prospects with Dalle Valle scoring for fun with the liverpool youngsters and David Amoo single handedly changing games with his style as an attacking midfielder..looking for a new name to put on the back of the new away kit..AMOO.

If I'am wrong about the takeover then so be it, but like I said, very very very reliable source.

Shame about Hargreaves injury, United's line up could have looked like this next season. Now United will look to replace Hargreaves and will probably have to drop their interest in Mario Balotelli, i cannot see them affording Ozil, Mario and possibly veloso as well!


What about valancia, we paid 16 million for him and he had a very good first season and will only get better. If nobody leaves all united need is an attacking midfielder (hopefully sneijder or Ozil) and maybe now a holding midfielder because i doubt hargreves will ever get back to full fitness/form :(.

 

09 Jul 2010 13:55:05
A few outgoings at the city ground

perch £1m+ newcastle done

tyson £1m reading or southampton very possible

cohan £45m maybe hope not bolton

wilson £3 4m maybe hope not again celtic

dele adebola free to ipswch maybe just a rumour

garner huddersfeild may well not happen now due to injury to blackstock and dele leaving for ipswich

bennett on season long loan to leauge one club

maloney and bryne also loaded out to league one or two clubs

with forest having one of the smallest squads in the ccc and maybe upto eight players leaving plus blackstocks injury surely billy must have a few players lined up more than just whitts pratts and shorey. shorey don't want to come to forest pratley deal seems to be going nowhere and is whitts good enough im not so sure.

RANGERS RUMOURS
first of all just to put this to bed, gattuso is in glasgow and he may very well train with rangers and yes he might even be at murray park but he isn't joining rangers this summer at least. over the years he has came back to glasgow because his wife is from glasgow so they frequently come back to visit and gattuso just needs to ask and hes allowed to train at murray park with rangers in order to stay fit its been in the paper a few times over the years. bougherra won't be leaving unless £10mil at the least is offered and thomson won't be leaving either because hes been labelled as one of the untouchables at rangers and £5mil would need to be offered to see rangers ever consider letting him go. no major players will leave unless crazy big money offers are put in. it is widely known that walter has been given £5mil AT LEAST to spend on players along with money from out going players that's if anyone leaves on a permanent basis.
rumoured ins(not all will happen obviously, just all of the names ive heard):
craig conway £750,000 dundee united
david goodwillie £2mil dundee united
chris brunt £2.5mil west brom
gael obertan LOAN man utd
scott mcdonald £2mil middlesborough(already scored for rangers twice)
tonel £1mil sporting lisbon
georgie welcome £500,000 honduran club?
alan hutton LOAN spurs
john tuffey £150,000 partick thistle
james mcarthur £350,000 hamilton
sol bamba £1.3mil hibs
an unknown world cup player other than georgie welcome who ally mcoist watched at the world cup but its rumoured he plays for north or south korea, anyone heard anything?

again, not all will happen obvioulsly. these are just some names that ive heard being linked with rangers. expect walter to wait till mid to late july before he starts doing anything transfer wise.
HERE WE GO 3 IN A ROW

Ok so hargreaves is out and we're talking like we gotta drop targets to get replacement fletcher can play there carrick, think about this, pay ten to twenty on replacement or work on his confidence? No brainer. Did anyone know park can play there?bet not, john o shea can stand in . but don't be suprised if there is additions in that department already talked about and not affecting priority targets. We aint skint and alex aint dumb, he known for while not to depend on hargo recovery or it lasting so believe me plans are in place, budget d.m, s are available in the diarras and maybe a suprise coming. And as a side issue stop slating people cause they can't spell, they speak more english than you can speak any other language. Dumb asses.:).conskujo.

Couldn't agree more, and is a chance for Pogba to get some outings in the first team this year, looks like a class prospect.

Ed is it true that chelsea have made a move for a DM (khaderia from stuggart) and a right winger (1st choice sanchez from udinese) with bost prices being around the £10mil mark. was very surpirsed when told as sanchez maybe but where would khaderia play, also whats the latest with torres any developments as £35mil bid being mentioned in last few days {editor's note – Khedira? I don't think he is a defensive midfielder mate, not when I have seen him play anyway, unless I am getting him mixed up with someone. The guy in the German World Cup squad right? I doubt very much Chelsea would get him for 10m and there is almost no chance of getting Sanchez for that little either. Same goes for Torres for 35m, it just won't happen.}

There is not a hope in hell that west brom will sell dorrans to a fellow premiership struggler.if that they decide to sell then remember jeremy peace's previous sales;
ellington 4 mil to watford, kamara 6 mill to fulham and koumas 5.5 mill to wigan. these aren't great players so how much is dorrans really worth ! in my opinion he's a top 6 side player !

any real west brom rumours editor ? {editor's note – I haven't had time to chase up any rumours about anything the last few days mate, I have been too busy with real life stuff to have time to do anymore than just post up what has been sent in.}

Coventry City Latest News
Aidy Bothroyd will bring in alot of new players in a push for promotion a new staduim could be on the table aswell
Kyle Walker and Sam Vokes on season long loans
Aaron McLean £1m
Nedum Onouha £3m may choose to sign for a premier league club instead
Ross McCormack £1m
Tom Cairney £1m with add ons
Andy Lonergan £800k
Micheal Tonge £800k
Jon Stead £1m

A new stadium?! I suppose you could be right, The Ricoh is getting a bit old now, we've had it since 2005 after all!
You think we are going to spend approx 9.5m on players, that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. We have a couple of million to spend, but are looking towards free transfers and younger, cheaper players. The only one of your 'rumours' that is even remotely possibly, would be Sam Vokes, but I doubt that one aswell.
Kyle Walker, I would imagine, will play a few games for Spurs this season, Peterborough want around 23m for McLean, Nedum Onuoha has been linked with this likes of Everton, West Ham and Liverpool, despite Cardiff's fanancial worries, they will get more than 1m for McCormack, Tom Cairney will be a big part of Hull's coming season and has been courted by Liverpool, Lonergan is worth more than 800k and we have Kieren Westwood, Michael Tonge will not sign as his wages are way too high and Jon Stead, you cannot be a Coventry fan as this guy was dire on loan he will join Huddersfield, for nowhere near 1m!

TO editor read on metro newspaper site that the genius Juan Roman Riquleme is a) avaliable on a free transfer, b) unwilling to renew it with Boca and C) that he Wenger is interested is there any truth to this considering Wenger policy on players over 30?
And p.s rumours of west ham being interested REALLY?? {editor's note – I believe he rejected an approach from the Hammers, but I am not 100% on that do any Hammers fans have any more info? As for Wenger, he wants over 30s in the side, it is just he length of contract that he offers that stops him signing many.}

The real reason for the delay in Ledley signing for Celtic is that Joe did not want to leave Cardiff with no compensation for him, as a result Celtic have agreed to pay slightly over the odds for Peter Wittingham, £4M to be exact, with £1M of that being written off as Glenn Loovens returns to Cardiff. Ledley will sign when all parties agree, but the transfer of Loovens will need to wait until Cardiff's transfer ban is lifted once they have sorted out their issues with the taxman, which they will do so with the money from the sale of Wittingham. Other teams such as West Brom were sniffing around but looking to take advantage of the financial situation at Cardiff by offering around £1 1.5M for him which would hardly be useful to Cardiff as this doesn't even cover ther tax bill. Trust me, Joe loves Cardiff and did not want to leave them in the mess they are in. Celtic's signing of Wittingham will end their interest in Liam Lawrence and pave the way for McGeady to move to villa next week.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has ruled out Robbie Keane making a loan return to Celtic. Before you ask who my source just go to SSN website and read there.

The reason Redknapp isn't letting him go back out on loan is because Keane is on his way to Midlands club Aston Villa. O'Neill who has been a long term admirer of the irish hitman is believed to making a £8.5 Million bid after he annouced strengthening the squad was a priority over the summer.

I get really fed up of seeing so much speculation linking Leeds to Gary Hooper as I am really sceptical of this particular speculation.

I have however seen this story, via NewsNow, appear on two other "independent" websites (i.e. I don't have any reason to trust the conent much more than some of the stuff I see on here).

Story the same on both sites (text identical) reads:
"It appears a 20 per cent sellon clause is now the last hurdle Leeds United need to clear if they are to complete the £3 million signing of Scthorpe's Gary Hooper, who netted 30 times last season."

Leeds have completed the signing of Lloyd Sam (see the official site).

Rumours in the local Coventry media suggest Leeds will not be signing Michael Doyle.

Utd have bidded for Ozil and Sneijder, my source tells me the sneijder deal has been waved away.
Other than this I'm not hearing anything out of Old Trafford, other than money problems.

Look at the odds on torres comming to man city that will tell you where hes going i told you all the other week when i got slatted torres to mcfc fact"

err. his odds onto be at liverpool

Having looked around, most of our friendly bookies have MCFC as favourites to sign him!! Still can't see it myself, but then again, why would he want to stay at a club that has gone so far downhill??

In reply to this.again what can man city offer more than liverpool this season?! they in the europa league with liverpool surely torres one more season at liverpool then off to europe. City fans are most deluded bunch of people around at mo, u were never like this when u didn't have the money

I totally agree with this liverpool supporter, I'am a 100% gooner and i want to say that torres will never go to city at this moment! Liverpool is one of the most beautiful clubs where you can play football and city is a club where you can be on a 200 000 a week contract but with no history. Also the city fans are so brave with their money! I hope that city will end out of the top 6! Torres will stay with liverpool ( 75 %) or will go to chelsea (25 %).

Sir Alex Ferguson does transfers on a list and preference basis.

Strikers:
1st choice: Villa (United put a bid but he was sold to Barcelona as he wanted to stay in Spain)
2nd choice: Benzema (made tentative enquiries, waiting to see if Real Madrid will sell him).
3rd choice: Edin Dzeko (Ferguson an admirer of Dzeko and would represent something different upfront for United who do not have a target man but United
4th choice: Mario Balotelli (Fiery Inter Milan player has plenty of talent and Ferguson wants to turn hi into new Ronaldo. But City interested and price may be too high at £30m or more)
5th choice: Luis Suarez (interested in move, but Ferguson tentative about deal)

Attacking/Creative Midfielder:
1st choice: J.Cole (wages were too high so United dropped interest in Cole)
2nd choice: Snjeider (staying at Inter Milan)
3rd choice: Ozil (after good world cup he has moved up Fergie's list. Expect a bid or enquiry next week)
4th choice: Van der Vaart (Real Madrid looking to offload midfielder but this would be Fergusons last resort).
5th choice: Thomas Muller (Unlikely to move from Bundesliga)

Defensive Midfielder (With Owen Hargreaves injured Ferguson will look for a new midfielder. He already had drawn up a list but it was not his priority. But with Hargreaves injury he will try and secure a new midfielder):
1st choice: Sami Khadeira (Good young player who has impressed at WC has gone to top of Fergusons list).
2nd choice: Lass Diara (if Mourinho wants to sell him United will try and sign him).
3rd choice: Cambiasso (Ferguson has been an admirer of Cambiasso for many years and with Inter looking to sign Mascherano Ferguson could be able to sign him).

One player from each category will definitely sign unless a new player becomes available or a change of mind from Ferguson. This is his official list given to David Gill.

 

09 Jul 2010 12:17:37
Ok so hargreaves is out and we're talking like we gotta drop targets to get replacement fletcher can play there carrick, think about this, pay ten to twenty on replacement or work on his confidence? No brainer. Did anyone know park can play there?bet not, john o shea can stand in . but don't be suprised if there is additions in that department already talked about and not affecting priority targets. We aint skint and alex aint dumb, he known for while not to depend on hargo recovery or it lasting so believe me plans are in place, budget d.m, s are available in the diarras and maybe a suprise coming. And as a side issue stop slating people cause they can't spell, they speak more english than you can speak any other language. Dumb asses.:).conskujo.

IN FAIRNESS MATE, CARRICK, FLETCHER AND CERTAINLY O'SHEA ARE NOT DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS, ALTHOUGH FLETCH AND CARRICK CAN PLAY THERE THEY ARE NOT DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS. AGAINST THE BIG TEAMS THEY GET FOUND OUT, FLETCH IS A CENTRAL MIDFIELDER WHO PLAYS BETWEEN THE ATTACKING AND DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDERS, WE DO NEED A SOLID DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER AND I'M SURE UNITED WILL TURN THEIR ATTENTIONS TO VELOSO, HE WILL COST BETWEEN 1215M. I EXPECT UNITED TO BUY A DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER, ATTACKING MIDFIELDER AND A STRIKER. THEY WILL OF COURSE REPLACE VIDIC IF HE WANTS TO LEAVE.

VELOSO (1215m)
OZIL (2025m)
BALOTELLI (15m+Macheda) OR BENZEMA (25m)

BERBATOV (1518m)
CARRICK (1215m)
GRAY (300k)

Arsenal Transfer News:

Sky sports website is this morning repoeting that Arsenal have switched there Goalkeeping search to Samir Handanovic (hope this is true as he is only 25 and already quality), the report goes on to say Udinese are in no financial state to refuse a substantial bid for the slovakian.

Other News: 1 more Centre Back coming in:

Serdar Tasci (£12m), Douglas Texiera (£7.35m) or Rafik Hallliche (£4m)

Joe Cole could join, but could just as easily go somewhere else. Lastly I keep hearing about Kevin Prince Boateng, who admittedly had a good world cup but I would be suprised (anythin to add ed or anything on what I have said?)

 

09 Jul 2010 11:52:24
After studying some players in training and discussions with senior figures, Roy Hodgson has identified the key areas of the squad that needs to be strengthened. These areas are; left back, left and right wing, central midfield, upfront. These are the priorities and Hodgson would prefer British players to sign due to the quota.

Hodgson has been given £15m to spend plus player sales. Javier Mascherano will leave for Inter, and this is something Hodgson would prefer to get done as soon as possible in order to bring in a replacement. He will leave for around the £25m mark and Hodgson is an admirer of James Milner so he could use the full amount from the Mascherano transfer to bid for Milner. Milner is an admirer of Liverpool Football Club and was close to joining before he went to Aston Villa.
Despite intense media speculation, I can assure Liverpool fans that Maynor Figueroa is not a target. In actual fact, despite the left back position being an area needed for strengthening, Hodgson is yet to identify a potential target. Aleksander Kolorov from Lazio was a target identified by Rafa and chief scout Eduardo Macia has reported filed regarding this player but with City interested, his price will rocket. I would expect Hodgson to bid for Wayne Bridge should he be made available but at the moment, no left back has beeen identified. There could be a surprise return for Fabio Aurelio who Liverpool released and Hodgson did want him at Fulham so if nothing comes around, he'll be resigned and Liverpool will have more money to spend.
Shaun WrightPhillips is being lined up as a possible signing as he will be deemed surplus to requirements at City and they would like to cash in on him and remove him from the wage bill. He would cost around £6million. Tottenham are also interested so if they sign him, Liverpool will pursue David Bentley. Joe Cole has been offered what Liverpool feel to be a very good contract offer. He has been offered £80,000 a week on a 4 year contract. Cole is currently on a family holiday and his agent has been doing negotiations with Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham. Joe will speak directly with each club, hold talks and take a look around each club next week before making a decision. Despite his links in London, he is willing to move North should he feel that's his best career move. Bryan Ruiz, a versatile left winger and striker from FC Twente is another target. He scored 24 goals in 34 games last season and Hodgson wanted him for Fulham but couldnt afford him. He would cost £12.5m as this is his release clause in his contract. There are scout reports complied for Juan Manuel Mata and due to the financial crisis Valencia are in, this could be an ideal opportunity to offer Valencia a good offer for a terrific young, versatile winger an offer they cannot refuse. I am told £10m plus Albert Riera would be enough as Valencia would have a direct replacement and an extra £10million. Milan Jovanovic has already signed and is another versatile player who can play upfront and on the left wing.
Again there are no definite namesd for the strikers position, Stefan Kiessling, a 26 year old German international for Bayer Leverkusen is a target after finishing 2nd top goalscorer in the Bundesliga last season.

I've heard too things around Cardiff this morning about the ledley situation.
1. was that Cardiff was willing to agree the offer that stoke made which was 2m plus micheal tonge and Dave Kitson but wasnt available to agree it first time round due to the transfer embargo but now that's cleared up and it will be lifted soon they can accept it.
2. is that Cardiff made a last ditch offer too keep their son and the offer was very interesting to him.
This is just what i've heard.

Plymouth have 2 million to spend yeah right, i follow plymouth we have nowhere near that, we are not financially well off. Falling gates and a huge wage bill mean we have very little. The japanese press say argyle are interested but can't afford him in a one off payment, so are looking to stagger payments, which hinders any deal as exchange rates are constantly changing.


board have told reid to trim down the squad but if he wants a player the board will give him the money to buy a player fact.but i don't think weve got 2 mil to spend either.

Joe ledley will not be signing for celtic.

his mother is not well and it has hit home how far away he will be from his family

the best part is, he will sign for cardiff where his mum and dad attend every single game whether he is fit or not

ledley is a bluebird and realises what the club means to him and his family money is not the driver for him but it appears to be so for his agent who he has fallen out with

his agent will get a huge signing on fee and has started to slate cardiff which he is not happy about

Toure
Milner Silva
Tevez
BalotelliDzeko

Squad rotation will be used and starting line up will be based on player form making the team even more competetive.
Richards, De Jong, Barry, Adebayor etc will push for starting place.

Just read that George Boateng has had his car vandalised while he was at Celtic park. Not the welcome to paradise he was expecting.

No more Ashley Young to Pool Rumours. NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. Liverpool are looking at Cole on a free and SWP for 6m. Turan for 12m is a possibility but Young is worth 30m, I'm sorry.

I am not saying i want A.Young but i am just wondering how villa fans are valuing him at 25 to 30m, i mean the lad didn't go the world cup or he didn't even make the pre squad & people like ozil/van der vartt/ wesley.s/ who have had very good world cups are being branded at 20/15/30m brackets, so how is young worth 30m can someone please give me a good reason apart from being english.

In this country it doesn't matter how good you are, it's how much the selling club think they can fleece out of the buying club. To me £20m for Young is a good deal for Villa. But O'Neill is a strange character and gets very upperty if someone dare show an interest inone of his players.

Look at the odds on torres comming to man city that will tell you where hes going i told you all the other week when i got slatted torres to mcfc fact"

err. his odds onto be at liverpool

Having looked around, most of our friendly bookies have MCFC as favourites to sign him!! Still can't see it myself, but then again, why would he want to stay at a club that has gone so far downhill??"

Perhaps because he loves the club and has close friends there. It's also worth bearing in mind that Liverpool were odds on to sign Ribery last year bookies' odds are largely based on how much has been staked on a possibility, not the likelihood of it actually happening. All this means is that a reasonable amount of money has been put on him going to City, not that the bookmakers have any inside info.

Scott sinclair has a choice between Leeds and Plymouth, and another club. Personally i think more clubs than that would be after him, Theoretically Leeds would be the obvious choice over Plymouth, higher wages, better division, bigger club. However Sinclair had a great time at Home park on loan from chelsea, the fans loved him, his disabled brother plays for argyles disabled team (not first team), he could have a season in league one where he is guaranteed football week in week out, and make a huge impact that swells his confidence immeasurably, a must for any youngster. So the obvious choice may be counterproductive.Sinclair to Argyle, along with Ryan harley, and a proven goalscorer.

09 Jul 2010 01:14:12
MAN UTD had the chance to sign Ozil when he was a teenager, so am not really sure if they will go foe him now. any ideas anyone?


United also had the chance to sign Rooney before Everton, went back for him. Same with loads of players. Also, United are reported to have made a bid to sign Ozil in January, but Ozil didn't want to move part way through the season. If that is true, then it is clear United maintained an interest in him, and rated him enough to make a move for him just 6months ago. Hopefully they make a move for him again this summer, as he is the type of player we desperately need.

West Ham are set to sign Barrera but face a challenge in getting him a work permit. He hasn't played sufficiant international games to automatically qualify for one.

Avran grant has told Matthew Upson he shoud either sign a new deal with West Ham or clear off! If Upson refuses to sign a deal soon, expect him to be leaving this summer. Most likely destination is Sunderland with a bid of around £5million and Anton Ferdinand.

 

09 Jul 2010 10:03:15
First things first, Manchester United do have money, and more than most think to play with. After the Berbatov, and sadly Owen Hargreaves transfers, Sir Alex has to get any future transfers spot on! That's why other than paper talk, We have not seen and " Definate " moves made for players. Also with Manchester City, seemingly ready to pounce on anything Man Utd scout, Then this summer has become a hard task! I think priorities are an Attacking Central Midfield. I also think if there is one out there we will bring another Striker in, With Diouf and Hernadez being sent on loan. I hate the glazers as much as anyone, But I don't believe they will let Man Utd depreciate, As this is the "ONE" Viable asset, that is making the Glazer family profit. Depending on the Nemanja vidic rumours, I do believe emay well be on his way! At 28 and if correct, I can't see Sir Alex keeping hold of him. Vidic wants to stay, His wife on the other hand hates England with a passion. Possible replacement is Neven Subotic, Gary Cahill, David luiz.

Aside from that, I don't believe needing a left sided player that, We are not interested in Joe Cole, After last season's move for one Michael Owen, I think there could be a suprise there for many, Who think he is a dead cert for Arsenal, Spurs etc.

Benzema I'm not to sure about, I still think Suarez who has had an impressive world cup, Could be the one, I think Fabiano is over priced and fear he could be another Berbatov. Only other position is goalkeeping, Which knowing how long it took us to replace Smechiel I believe this is probably the most important area to get right. Back to the midfield don't be suprised to hear the name Rafael Van der vaart, Mesut ozil I would'nt like to say as United will not get drawn into a bidding war. Last Marek Hamsik of napoli.

Anyhow yet again this isn't a friend of Sir Alex's dog walker's groomer, left sided cousin, seperated my marriage, Just opinion. and hope this lays some rumours to rest.

Im a true LFC fan with realistic targets and opinions, however if the worst scenario come to place and TORRES, GERRARD and MASCHERANO all left im pretty sure we would get in around 100MIL? minimum . Now that would either make 5 quality 20 mil signings ? or 8 say 12Mil signings, either way if there gonna go, there going for top dollar.

MASCHERANO min 30 Mil ? id be cycling him to INTER !
GERRARD min 30 Mil ?
TORRES min 5070 Mil ?

So Roy is playing the waiting game and evaluating his options and squad, like most of sensible LFC fans, we all now we need a LB, poss a pacey CB, and in my eyes a LW. Then it depends on whats sales or made not for the money but for the tactics he has in mind and the players in the positions. I would like to see STEVIE (if he stays of course) back to CM, where he can pull the strings, if he goes for the money we re after then targets like VDV, BANEGA, GAGO, HONDA, could be looked at? as with MASCHERANO if YAYA went to MANC for 28M then damm right we selling him for more than him ?

Can't see this happining. Haughton has stated several times that he doesn't want to sell.

To all the fools debating Torres and offering their musings from various "sources", Torres has previously said he will NOT leave Liverpool for another Premier League club. If he were to leave it would be for Italy or back to Spain, that's straight from the horses mouth.

Could we forget the rumours about Torres going to Citeh or Chelsea now? I'd also add H&G are no longer involved in the running of the Club and there is still an embargo on the sale of players until our Ownership issue is resolved which should be towards the end of August. Any sale of intangible assets especially one with such a commercial value as Torres would HUGELY impact our sale negotiations, hence the Club aren't looking to sell their "star" players perhaps fringe players but not Gerrard or Torres.

To TheTurdz..

Your brief regarding Mascherano is hardly ground breaking mate. I doubt it would come as a surprise to anyone when he leaves Liverpool. It has only been a matter of time before an official request to move on was written. He has evidently been unhappy for some time, dating potentially to when Barca originally tried to sign him. This has been reflected in his performances for mush of last season, which, in my opinion, have generally been rubbish.

The question is where will he go?

Inter or Barca seem to be the only possibilities. Barca surely won't sign both him and Fabregas, but selling Yaya Toure leaves them a little short in terms of holding midifielders.

Inter have Cambiasso who, although left out of the Argentina squad, is every bit a match for Mascherano. I'm intrigued by the possibility of using Cambiasso in a cash+player deal which would see Mascherano flogged to Italy and us getting a readymade replacement.

I think that where possible, we should look to take advantage of exchanges as I don't trust the Yanks enough to guarantee that any hard cash raised from player sales will be made available to Roy to find replacements.

PACMAN {editor's note – am I the only one who thinks Cambiasso is a better player than Mash? He offers so much more to the team going forward.}

Coventry City Transfer News:

Aidy Boothroyd is set to bring in a goalkeeper, winger and couple of strikers in a bid to get Coventry into the top 6 this coming season.
Currently, Kieren Westwood is the clubs only senior goalkeeper after the departure of subkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos. Danny Ireland, who was the 3rd choice last season, is currently the number 2, but having only made 1 first team appearance, has very little experience. Available players Kieren Westwood, Danny Ireland.
Boothroyd is happy with the quality and depth in defence, after completing the signings of Stephen O'Halloran from Aston Villa and Richard Keogh from Carlisle. Available players James McPake, Chris Hussey, Martin Cranie, Ben Turner, Richard Wood, Jermaine Grandison, Jordan Clarke, Richard Keogh.
He is also pleased with the midfield players, although he has recognised that a creative midfielder/winger is needed to add a bit of inginuity to the side. Available players Sammy Clingan, David Bell, Michael Doyle, Gary Deegan, Isaac Osbourne, Aron Gunnarsson, Carl Baker, Michael McIndoe, Gary McSheffrey.
As previously stated, 2 strikers are needed as currently, the club are short of firepower. Available players Freddy Eastwood, Roy O'Donovan, Shaun Jeffers.

Potential Targets:

GK Carsten Null (1860 Munich), Matej Delac (Chelsea), David Stockdale (Fulham), Martin Hansen (Liverpool), Gunnar Nielsen (Man City), Ben Alnwick (Tottenham).
DF Calum Davenport (Unattached)
MF Robert Koren (Unattached), Anthony Worsworth (Colchester).
ST Fabio Borini (Chelsea), Marlon King (Unattached), James Beattie (Stoke), Rob Hulse (Derby), Orlando Smeekes (FC Carl Zeiss Jena).

In other news, Burnley, Bolton and Middlesbrough are interested in Aron Gunnarsson, Blackpool are interested in Sammy Clingan, Norwich are interested in Michael Doyle and West Ham are interested in Kieren Westwood.

Everything hinges on Dorrans from WBA, West Ham won't give up. Once they get there man the midfield merry go round begins:

Dorrans West Ham
Parker Villa
Milner Citeh
Ireland Villa
Barry Liverpool

The Milner deal could include either Ireland or Onhoua or both dependant on the price and the players themselves.

Keane has been spotted at Boodymore Heath this week and should be a villa players in days.

 

09 Jul 2010 08:07:03
To the Villa fan who said 20mil for Ashley Young was a joke why?? he is not the finished article, he does not play his best football every game, he is young and english but that doesn't mean he's worth stupid money.. 20mil is market value and if he indicated his desire to move (to Liverpool for example) i believe 20mil would be accepted.

However, he won't go to Liverpool because they simply do not have that sort of money. It would be risky to blow all of the transfer budget (15mil + Babel the only deal i think Liverpool could afford) on one player. Liverpool need a winger or 2 but there are plenty of other areas also in need of attention as well do not expect Young to join. And definitely not Milner, his value has already gone skyrocketed due to Citys interest.

Joe Cole has been spoken too by Liverpool but his wage demands are too steep and his heart is still in London. WrightPhillips is being looked at and would be relatively cheap but its unclear whether or not City would be willing to do business with a Top 4 rival.

Heard a rumour that Ozil is on his way to Inter Milan, Benitez was already looking at bringing him to Liverpool but after an impressive World Cup showing raising his value (way out of Liverpools budget) and Benitez moving on it seems he may be Italy bound. Inter can afford it so the only question is does Ozil want to move there or is there a better offer on the table?? Madrid, United, Chelsea and City are the only ones who could afford to compete. Madrid and United are the only ones with the money and the prestige.

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.

Check the official site pal, it HAS been paid.

Also, Arsene Wenger is keen to get Adam Matthews in and won't mind loaning out two of his young stars to a club with Premiership potential.

Besides, a contact of mine at St. David's Hotel in Cardiff has told me that two players from Arsenal have been booked in for a week, and that they may be back for a 'much longer stay'.

Butt will come if we can match his wage demands (50/50) and Spearing has no real future at Liverpool so may well see Cardiff as a good club to join. Borini is a maybe, but I know for a fact Dave Jones wants a new striker and is scouring the Premiership and SPL for a loan signing.

I was the one who first put up the Scott Sinclair to Leeds rumours, & it looks like a lot on here have just run with it, Leeds have definitely not agreed terms with him & he has definitely not come down for a medical, there are numinous clubs in for him, Chelsea have accepted 3 offers for him so far, Leeds is one Plymouth is another not sure of the third, hopefully he'll be a Leeds player but like I said not close to a done deal.

Koren still has an offer from Leeds on the table & supposedly has a good relationship with Leeds' representatives after they tried to sign him before he went to WBA.

Last little bit of info, Leeds still interested in Offers for Kilkenny and Snodgrass at the right price.

now im not going to go into sources, i have mates in liverpool involved in lfc..what i hear, you guys hearashley young has met with lfcthere has been no response yet..joe cole has met with lfc..after england arrived back and we havnt any word yet from his camp to this time..i was told liverpool have put a bid in for bryan ruiz..as i stated three nights ago and still i have no word back on that either, i asked tonight about any takeover bid and i was told that liverpool are in talks with numerous parties although no names have been revealed..and to expect martin broughton to come out with a statement regarding this issue rather soon.., regarding bids..not about anyone near any takeover.
my views on everything going on are simple..were going to have to wait and see..hodgson has his ideas, and has the squad he wants..its a waiting game..expect nobody to arrive(other than jovanovic) and mabee some youth players untill august at the earliest.

Liverpool transfers this season will be
Milan Jankovich already signed
Arda Turan highly likely
VDV Hart highly likely
Diarra possibly
Benzema possibly

 

09 Jul 2010 00:53:07
_VDS
Rafael Rio Vidic Evra
Fletch _Hargo
_Ozil
_Mario _Nani
Rooney

Shame about Hargreaves injury, United's line up could have looked like this next season. Now United will look to replace Hargreaves and will probably have to drop their interest in Mario Balotelli, i cannot see them affording Ozil, Mario and possibly veloso as well!

 

09 Jul 2010 00:54:19
MIDDLESBROUGH:
Gennaro gattuso has expressed his desire to play in England and my sources in Italy tell me that Gordon strachan is leading the race to sign the little italian midfielder. Although I think it may seem very unlikely. What do you think?

 

09 Jul 2010 01:14:12
MAN UTD had the chance to sign Ozil when he was a teenager, so am not really sure if they will go foe him now. any ideas anyone?

TARGETS[not 100% facts cos i am rooneys childminders cousins wifes dogs walker!] FOR THE BIG TEAMS:
CHELSEA:torres khedira schweinsteiger lukaku david luiz
MAN U:van der varrt balotelli ozil lahm otamendi
ARSENAL: melo ozil cole mensah busquets[maybe part of fabregas deal]
LIVERPOOL: cole turan young milner gosling cole[striker]
VILLA: parker keane bellamy gosling mcgeady
SPURS: cole marin podolski cavani bonnuci martinez
MAN C: ibrahimovic milner dzeko bastos martinez balotelli [pele maradonna van basten and klinsmann]

See any these transfers on the cards Ed or just usual false paper talk? {editor's note – there are a few that are definitely targets. But most of them don't look to be happening, but isn't that always the way? Papers put out thousands of names and only mention the one they got right in all those names.}

Liverpool have had a contract rejected from joe cole because arseanal have offered 115k a week which is 40k more than what lfc offered him. liverpool have got some back up with jovanovic deal going through which is a good free transfer after a short but good world cup scoring against germany,

liverpool will still have a chance of joe cole deal,

ins, cole maybe
jovanovic done deal
figeroa looks likely
shaun wright phillips possibly an easy target

outs, ryan babel defo 610million
lucas defo 2 5 million
mascherano unless persuaded but very unlikely of staying 25 million max

possibly if liverpool raise some funds though more players who can't take the club to the top they will sign a few good players who are worth 10 million plus

Look at the odds on torres comming to man city that will tell you where hes going i told you all the other week when i got slatted torres to mcfc fact"

err. his odds onto be at liverpool

Having looked around, most of our friendly bookies have MCFC as favourites to sign him!! Still can't see it myself, but then again, why would he want to stay at a club that has gone so far downhill??

 

09 Jul 2010 00:44:54
Hartlepool will sign:

Evan Horwood (released by Carlisle)
Fabian Yantorno (Midfielder from Uruguay)
Kevin Bobson (Dutch striker)
Kazenga Lua Lua (loan from Newcastle)

Other news from the NorthEast:

Jonathan De Guzman will go to Newcastle.

Cana left Sunderland for £5m

Darlington will sign highly rated 17 year old Neil Pallister who was born in Hartlepool.

PNE FC

on the verge of a £500k deal for Stoke City LB Carl Dickinson.

Enquiries have also been made with LFC for loan of Nabil el Zhar.
Resigning of David Nugent for fee of £1.2m is looking likely as he accepts substantial wage deduction.

Richard Chaplow is interesting Swansea/Blackpool @ £500k, leaving only Darren Carter, Neil Trotman and Stephen Elliott to offload.

ARSENAL TO SIGN ONE OF THE FOLLOWING DEFENDERS:

PER MERTESACKER (WERDER BREMEN) £1416m

NEVEN SUBOTIC (DORTMUND) £1315m

SERDAR TASCI (STUTTGART) £1214m

GARY CAHILL (BOLTON) £16m STARTING BID NO DEAL. WAY OVERPRICED, BOLTON WILL NEED TO COME DOWN TO EARTH IF THEY WANT A DEAL FOR THE LAD.

LAURENT KOSCIELNY IS NOT FIRST OPTION TO PARTNER VERMAELEN. HE WILL PROVIDE BACK UP TO BOTH CB'S AND CDM FOR SONG.

 

08 Jul 2010 23:23:55
No more Ashley Young to Pool Rumours. NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. Liverpool are looking at Cole on a free and SWP for 6m. Turan for 12m is a possibility but Young is worth 30m, I'm sorry. Yes Taylor wants to push the Pool move, Parker is most likely moving to Villa Park where Young and Milner most likely will be there (Young definitely). Shorey at Pool? Figueroa is definitely a major player wanted over Shorey. Shorey holding out for Prem team with Newcastle looking at him. {editor's note – I would doubt if Shorey is an option, he struggled to get a game for Fulham while Roy had him on loan.}

Editor i know your a liverpool fan but this takeover and 15th july thing is tedious mate! why on earth would bidding start on a particular date it aint an auction ?! im a spurs fan so correct me if im wrong but before gillet and hicks came liverpool struggled to find a buyer then and you were in a much healthier state then to. so why would bidding start on that date? surely if your up for sale now then potential buyers can bid now but i think that there aint no one serious yet to bid. i do know its getting boring though! transfer rumours are what this sites about but not takeovers! when someone bids for your club surely we will findout in the media like last time. what do you think ed ? {editor's note – I am bored of the takeover thing myself, but it IS an auction, and you are wrong about the state of the club. It has been improved in the time that H&G have been there, that should tell you something about just how bad things were before they bought it!}

Loving all the man utd rumours KEEP THEM COMING PLS!! Red evil Till I Die

 

08 Jul 2010 23:40:57
I wish the anti United brigade would stop saying United have no money to spend, evidently they do with a 29m bid placed yesterday and two bids for Balotelli in the region of 2025m. Lets not forget United equaling Real Madrid's 31m accepted bid for Benzema last season confirmed by both United and Lyon, United obviously do have funds.

Manchester United have funds to spend so just get over it people, United will buy at least one probably two big players. With Sneijder out of the picture now you would be a fool to think Ozil is not next on the list. If United fail to get Balotelli then they will probably turn their full attentions to Benzema once more. Now United have lost treatment room legend Owen Hargreaves they will try to buy either Veloso or Melo, Veloso would be my bet. But this is just an educated guess.

I am not being optimistic i am being realistic, if United have already bid for Sneijder and Balotelli then there is nothing stopping them from moving onto the next targets. With Ozil saying on two separate occasions this week that he would love a move to either Chelsea or Manchester United or La Liga, how can you plums think that United are not in with a chance? Grow up guys, whether you like it or not United have money to spend!

Nuff said!

 

08 Jul 2010 23:08:26
I heard whispers around Chadwell heath that West Ham are trying to bring Michael Carrick back to the club. I don't know what they have offered, but I suppose the deal is dependant on the Sneijder transfer happening.

Ed, have you heard anything about this? Or am I hearing things again? :P {editor's note – I hadn't heard anything on that until now. I would think it will depend on Hargreaves, if his injury forces him to retire then United would have a nice boost to their coffers. If his injury is just long term they will need to keep Carrick.}

"Javier is looking, for sure, to leave Liverpool, " A well placed source told Soccernet. "There is no doubt that at the moment he wants to go. Await developments, as Javier has made up his mind."

The only reason Mascherano might stay would be if the clubs interested in him fail to meet Liverpool's valuation.

Barcelona have long been linked with Mascherano but the financial situation at the Nou Camp is far from stable. Inter Milan are looking the most likely destination as Rafa Benitez is keen to be reunited with his hard tackling midfield dynamo

I said in AprilMay "That if Rafa goe's Mascherano wants to go with him" This is him now pushing through his move to Inter and Liverpool will probably have to lower their price. Me personally would hold out for the price that he is worth 3540 mill don't forget that Rafa said himself "He's worth 50 million". Now we will only get 2025 mill because we all know if a player dosn't want to play for you we have no choice. That's why Fabregas will leave Arsenal! But not for 5060 mill like Arsenal want and IMO is worth! But probably 3035 mill.

I hope Mascherano rots in HELL if you think i'm to harsh remember LFC saved his career. Only for us he wouldn't be wanted by Barca, Inter or prabably any world class team.

THANKS MASCH FOR NOTHING BUT YOU WILL MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE THAT MICHAEL"THE TRAITOR"OWEN DID AND REGRET IT. LFC ARE RISING AGAIN AND QUICK. Blair Mayne YNWA

 

08 Jul 2010 23:11:23
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).


DEAR FRIEND, I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THAT THIS IS NO KOPTALK. AND THE PLAYERS IN QUESTION DO NOT INCLUDE HIGUAIN !! CHECK MY EARLIER EMAILS IF POSSIBLE THE JUVE TARGETS WERE A MIDFIELDER AND SOMEONE FROM THE YOUTH SETUP. THE SPANISH CONNECTIONS INVOLVES A STRIKER AND A MIDFIELDER [ONE OF WHICH WILL NOT MATERIALISE IF THE BID UTD HAVE MADE FOR THE ITALIAN BASED PLAYER IS ACCEPTED]. GRANTED, THE MESSAGE WAS AMBIGIOUS, BUT THE POINTERS ARE CLEAR. ONE TABLOID PAPER [NOT THE SUN OR MIRROR] HAS BEEN SPOTON IN ITS ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT UTD TARGETS AND THAT IS BECAUSE THE INFO IT HAS BEEN FED HAS COME DIRECTLY FROM UTD MANAGEMENT. THE ITALIAN PLAYER IN QUESTION DOES NOT PLAY FOR MILAN AND ONLY ONE OF THE SPANISH PLAYERS ARE TIED TO REAL. AS PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED, ALL WILL BE REVEALED IN DUE COURSE WHETHER THE BIDS ARE SUCCESSFUL OR NOT. REGARDS THE SEAGULL

 

08 Jul 2010 23:12:57
Liverpool have signed Jovanovic and will look to sign Ruiz (14m), Cole (free) or Turan (12m?), Figueroa (5m) or Taiwo (8m). Possibly some other squad players as replacements. This will create a lot more competition for places and will strengthen the squad massively.
I expect the first XI to look like this (433 possibly):

Reina
Johnson Carra Agger Figueroa(/Taiwo)
Maxi Gerrard Turan(/Cole)
Aqua Ruiz(/Jovanovic)
Torres

Mascherano will sign for Inter probably but it will be at the end of the transfer window as his agent has said!
The likes of Lucas, Babel, Riera, Insua and Ngog etc. will be assessed during preseason and some may go but the above transfers, or similar, should happen regardless.

These are just what I keep hearing and I definitely think if most of the above happen then our squad will be much stronger next season and will be far more competitive at the top of the table!

Probable rangers team for next season


McGregor

Whittaker Webster Weir Papac

Conway(1.0m) Davis ThomsonNaisy

MillerLafferty

Subs:
Alexander
Fleck
Little
Wylde
Kind Bendikson
Broadfoot
Edu
Welcome(500k)

Expect Sir Watty to bring in a defender from nowhere, like he always does, someone noones heard of.
Probably a midfielder from the lower leagues in england league 1 or below, but don't worry the manager is usually a good judge of player and wouldn't sign someone he thought couldnt make it at ibrox.
And maybe another Striker on loan or bought if funds permit
Apart from boyd I think the team will be better, more balanced if we bring in the boy conway and put stevie davis through the middle.
total spend:34m

Probable Celtic team
Zaluska

DuriHoovield K WilsonMulgrew

MaloneyBrownLedleyLawrence

Rasmusson hooper

septic subs:
Fortune
Thompson
rogne
M wilson
Ki
The tic will probable bring in another midfielder as cover maybe Bullard if doesn't get an offer anywhere else.
Another defender if the get rid of loovens
and another striker if Samaras goes
Total spend:810m

3 in a row here we go

To the guy who posted this:

Breaking Glasgow Rangers news:

Gattuso sighted at Murray park, signing talks underway.

rangers are lucky they can afford the wages of madjid bougherra never mind gattuso

Celtic News:

Sol Campbell more likely to go to Sunderland now. Shame a would like to have seen him make a fool out of miller. They will now chase either Kelvin Wilson or Sean St Ledger.

Jimmy Bullard and Joe Ledley are more or less done deals just waiting on medicals.

If Gary Hooper comes then bellamy and keane rumours could fade away.

But If McGeady is sold then Keane Or Bellamy could sign to partner Hooper. We would NEVER be able to afford both of them.

Last but not least Liam Lawrence and Daryl Murphy could join in the next week or two. Again depending on when Mcgeady is sold.

Rangers by doing nothing in the transfer market are being cagey but very wise.Values will drop the nearer we get to the end of the window that is the time to go into the market not now when clubs are desparate to get the most from their assets. Believe me Walter is spot on with his strategy. Rumours at Rangers Vaughan season loan from Everton. Hutton WILL COME BACK TO IBROX either part ex for Boogy or straight purchase when funds are available.Gattuso won't at this stage. Other signings are small beer.Yorkie lad

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!!

right, lets get some facts straight here. John Rooney is 19 so is NOT available on a free transfer. he is under 24 so he would require a fee as the Bosman ruling states. he has not turned down Macclesfields offer officially but he is training with an unnamed League one side. and Macclesfield are a League Two club so if you're gonna talk about him please get it right. I am a share holder at Macclesfield so i get my info first hand. we are hopeful he stays but if he doesn't the interested clubs have been told that six figures will cover it

Plymouth have 2 million to spend yeah right, i follow plymouth we have nowhere near that, we are not financially well off. Falling gates and a huge wage bill mean we have very little. The japanese press say argyle are interested but can't afford him in a one off payment, so are looking to stagger payments, which hinders any deal as exchange rates are constantly changing.

From an independent fans website regarding Saha

'He doesn't seem to be in Sydney with the squad, having been named in the squad to travel and is advertised on the posters over here in Sydney as one of the big names to play! Aparently according to a Twitter comment he was spotted at finch farm with gosling while the rest where in Oz. Looks like he's on the way out! Would be sad to see him go..'

The latest I have heard (not sure if true) is he lost his passport and had to stay behind to get a new one.He may have a new one now

Plymouth Argyle have sold Ashley Barnes to Brighton for 300k. He has signed a 2yeardeal with £10,000 per week.

Gillingham will let Simeon Jackson go for 750k which 3 clubs are willing to offer(Norwich, Millwall & Southampton, Plymouth are only willing to pay 600k)

Argyle will bid for Martin , midfielder for Ipswitch, though probably a loan deal

all true mate but i don't think barnes is earning that much its more likely 3000 a week but the fee is right everything u said apart from barnes wages are correct argyle need a right mid more than anything in my opnion and lee martin is a plymouth aswell i think.
