  Me and my mate were at the Rangers v Hearts game a few weeks ago and bumped into Marlon Harewood. I asked him what he was doing at Rangers and was he going to sign and all he would say was, I was just havin a look around, He was also spotted leaving Murray Park a few days later!! Could he be signing????????? I bloody well hope so!!!
  You people should know by now that when you hear alot about a potential Rafa signing, he always ends up signing someone else. .
Think about it. . The media was very close when they reported rumours of Forlan to LFC. That was the first red herring that Rafa Dropped. . Now he has all you people thinking over him going for Silva. . . I hope Silva don't have his hopes up cos he's not coming to LFC.
The rumours originated with Forlan at Athletico because Rafa was beginning his cover up to draw everyone away from who he is really targeting. . Which is the Forward with whom was Torres' partner at Athletico. Who Torres knows how to play with, and with whom LFC can stick to the 4–2–3–1 formation.
One of the most talented youngsters around. And with his Argentinian Team captain Masch and team mate Insua making him feel at home. He will fit right into the squad.
The Boy is non other that KUN AGUERO!!!
Think about it. . Nothing else makes more sense.
Yes he will cost. . but look for a part exchange etc. . Cos Rafa will only sign 1 big name this summer and 1 big name in January(with the new owners money)
  OFFICIAL: CARLOS TEVEZ IS A TIME LORD.

I can reveal that having been stopped for speeding by plod on friday in merseyside, prior to meeting Bill Kenwright, Tevez managed to get all the way to Argentina to play on Saturday against Columbia. Amazing! Or could it be that the 'officer' who posted the story about booking him for doing 47mph in a 30mph zone, and phong Bill to say he was late, is the one who's speeding.

  ________________________________________________________________

Sunderland are close to signing Sbastien Bassong from Newcastle for £6M

_______________________________________________________________
  Jonathan Fortune seen driving away from Carrow Road. Clingan and Hoolahan will be sold to the championship. Norwich will sign Michael Nelson and Danny Woodards but will unfortunatly miss out on Miguel Llera.
  LFC Rumour

Kop Holdings LTD the Company formed by Hicks and Gillette to fund the purchase of LFC has made a loss of approx 42m due to interest payments. This was totally expected as it was based on Contracts to pay interest at certain rates deemed beneficial at the time. The Auditors KPMG are required by law to comment on " whether the company can continue as a going concern " they had to bring the issue as one of uncertainty because no extension of the loans has yet been agreed.
This doesn't mean there is any cause for concern.LFC is profitable and future revenue streams from TV etc are certain. The owners know that growth in the value of their investment will primarily come from success on the pitch so there is little doubt that funds will be available for transfers. There is a strong possibility that Alonso will leave but only because he may want to not because LFC want the funds. Babel will leave if a good offer comes in as will Dossena, but both may stay if offers are not good enough.Rafa will try to replace both of these also a striker and RB are sought. Silva is first choice but as we know Real/Chelsea/Man C will compete. Tevez will sign for Manu i personally think Rafa has expressed an interest to force Manu to sign him thereby reducing their transfer budget ie better the devil you know! Tuncay is a good bet and once again Johnson will be dependent on other interested clubs.However don't underestimate the draw of playing for LFC there will be many agents offering players to Liverpool. Rafa will no doubt get the best his funding will allow although these may not be his ideal choices due to the spending power of some of LFCs competitors.
  West ham transfer to be announced in the next week joe ledley to west ham collins to cardiff plus some cash which as normal for the hammers will be undisclosed.probably somewhere in the region of 2 million.

Hey everyone write this down, you heard it here first:–

This is Arsne Wengers last season at Arsenal! Where will he go? I hear you all ask. Real Madrid– NO. French national squad – NO, AC Milan – NO. Man city – YES. He will do this last season then take over at Eastlands where he will be able to spend spend spend. Man city feel he will attract the best players in the world and play the sort of football they want. This is the reason Mark Hughes has not been sacked.


  Depending on whether Real get Alonso, Liverpool will gamble on Dutch duo Huntelaar and Robben. Liverpool fans will probably dislike the signing on Robben initially but he is proven in the Premiership and after some good performances, would be accepted. He would be ideal as Riera is a quality winger, and with Robben's injury proneness, would not not complain about the lack of first team football. Liverpool will again bid for Tottenham's Aaron Lennon but will not get him as they will drive the price too high.
  To all burnley and gers fans saying driver for 1 –1.5 m get real we turned that down already and now hes in u21 squad for england mad vlad wants 2 –2.5 m for him so get real
  Heard these rumours are doing the rounds in Glasgow. Rangers Football Club have been approached by Birmingham City regarding Barry Ferguson. McLeish wil be looking to bolster his midfield with an experienced midfielder and Ferguson fits the bill. Tony Mowbray will also offer Ferguson a chance to sign for Celtic but accepts that boyhood Rangers fan will never pull on the hoops leaving Alex Mcleish on poll position to sign him for 1.5 million.

Other moves out of Ibrox are also touted as;

Kris Boyd to Newcastle / Birmingham (2 million)
Alan McGregor to Newcastle / Schalke or Birmingham (3 million)
Brahim Hemdani – gone
Chistian Dailly – gone / to Dundee Utd
Alan Gow – will be going
Charlie Adam – will be going
Andreas Velika – Hearts (1 million or exchange)
Stevie Smith – will be going (Birmingham possibilty – McLeish rates him highly)

Players being mentioned as Ibrox bound,

Michael Owen and/or Alan Smith from Newcastle
Lee Miller – Aberdeen
Scott Severin – Aberdeen
Charlie Mulgrew – Aberdeen
Johnny Tuffey – Partick Thistle
Bruno Aguiar – Hearts
Laryea Kingston – Hearts
Andy Dorman – St Mirren
Niguez – Valencia
Kris Commons – Derby
Chris Brunt – West Brom

Obviously there would be a huge list of possibilities but the priority for players in are a goal keeper, left sided midfielder,a centre back and a centre forward. Personally I woud love to see both Owen and Smith (huge Rangers fan)puling on a blue jersey. Owen would guarantee 30 goals plus and perhaps rekindle his love of the game a la Gazza many years ago. This is what Rangers are & should be about, believe. . .
  Joleon Lescott will sign the end of this week at Manchester City for £9m with Richard Dunne going in the opposite direction.

Steven Pienaar is in talks with a shock move to Anfield, as Rafa sees him a solution to his midfield problems.

Everton also will announce the signing of Nigel Quashie who was on loan at Wolves last season. Quashie, who is 31, will be joining the Blues in a player and coaching capacity.
  Stop linking Carlos Tevez with all of your clubs. He is on international duty so he can't be in Liverpool, Manchester or London.

It is unknown were tevez will end up. I don't even think joorbichian knows. But i already know he won't go to everton, liverpool or man city.
everton–the takeover is true but he will want champions league football.
Liverpool– there in massive debt so can't afford him
man city– He has to much respect for united to go to there ''rivals''

now i am an everton fan an lescott will definatley be going to city for £28mill or £16mill plus richards or jo. Most probably richards will be chosen because moyes will want a like for like replacement straight away.

expect moutinho, ledley, bentley, obinna and a new right back to be playing for the mighty blues next year. The right back being his most important position because tony hibbert as much as we love him just isn't good enough for the push for champions league places.

also watch out for osman, anichebe and hbbert to leave this summer
  Arsenal:

in: Vermaelen or Zapata
Yaya or Inler

Out: senderos and maybe adebayor––enough bs rumours please
  Arsenal rumours in (i believe these are reliable because my friend works under Ivan Gazidis at Arsenal) Apparently Wenger has asked for £40 million to spend in the summer + money he gets from players leaving on the following players:

INS:
Edin Dzeko £15 million (WOLFSBUEG)

Thomas Vermaelen £10 (AJAX)

Joleon Lescott £9.75 million (EVERTON)

Yaya Toure £9.5 million

or

Marcos Senna £9.5 million (VILLARREAL)

Keirrisson £3 million (Palmeiras)20 yrs old striker

Dositej Anastasijevitzch £1 million (Shakahter Donetsk) 15 yrs old defensive midfielder

OUTS:

Emmanuel Adebayor £20 million AC MILAN

Emmanuel Eboue £8 million ATLETICO MADRID

Carlos Vela (LOAN) Birmingham City

William Gallas £8 million PSG

Phillipe Senderos £6 milllion AC MILAN


TOTAL SPENDING= £48.25 TOTAL SALES= £42 million

SO WENGER ONLY REALLY SPENDS £6.25 million

These are the exact players Arsene Wenger is looking at to buy at the moment and this is a very reliable if you don't believe me call Arsenal and as if Dean McKerr works in the financial sector. All info is from him. CArlos Vela will go to Birmingham City on loan as Arsenal have always let their rising stars develop at City such as Muamba, Larsson and Bendtner.
  Expect Liverpool to sign David Silva by the end of the month. Rafa is wasting his £20m budget on him now as Real Madrid want him. After that, it is quite on the signings front until late July/early August. Outs will be:
Charles Itandje – £500k – Montpellier
Andrea Dossena – £7m – Juventus
Alvaro Arbeloa – £8m – Atletico Madrid
Albert Riera – £10m – Villarreal
Ryan Babel – £9m – Arsenal
Lucas Leiva – £6m – Sevilla
Jermaine Pennant – Free – Stoke City
Andrey Voronin – £4m – Frankfurt
and unfortunately Xabi Alonso – £22m + Heinze
these will be following Jack Hobbs to Leicester for £500k and Smi Hyypia, who's joined Leverkusen.
Ins will be (after the sales):
Gabriel Heinze – P. Ex
Glen Johnson – £10m (£3m + £7m owed from Crouch)
Antonio Barragan – £4m buy back clause
Michael Johnson – £5m
Kevin Nolan – £3m
David Bentley – £8m
Sanli Tuncay – £7m
Sergio Aguero – £30m
Mounir El Hamdaoui – £8m
  Doncaster rovers board are secretly aiming for the play–offs this year and are plannin to spend a bit of money this season

  My Dad works with one of the Bristol City directors so I have it on good authority that Bristol City are set to bid £4m for Cameron Jerome from Birmingham City.
  Seriously Arsenal fans, do not believe the media rants they blow small things into huge things.
When has uncle Arsene done us wrong. he is a credit to the english game,
he won't be making huge splash outs for players as he doesn't have alot in the kitty.
He will however make some good descisions on players with huge potential, Vermaelen being one of them. Matudi another and chellini, that will be it.
Just scouring the internet and these are the consistant names.
  To the arsenal fan who wrote this:
"i seem to remember ranieri being interested in eboue, so possible swapo deal involving chiellini?"

I seem to remember Ranieri being sacked straight after Inter won the serie A title. So his interest in Eboue will no longer have anything to do with Juventus and therefore Chielini.
  To the guy who claimed that Huntelaar will be joining United, you are spot on. In fact, one of the reasons Real bought Huntelaar in January rather than Villa was so they could use him as bait for Ronaldo if they needed to this summer. Ferguson may go for Robben too. Expect as much as 50m + Huntelaar.

SPURS: IN: Downing, Van Nistlerooy, Bassong, Arteta

OUT: Chimbonda, Bentley, Bent, Jenas.

CHELSEA: IN: Zambrotta, Barzagli, Ribery

OUT: Ferreira, Carvalho

LIVERPOOL: IN: T Sanli, G Johnson, M Petrov

  Arsenal ins, outs, promotions and loans. Le Boss has £13m to spend plus resources from sales bringing together a total budget of £42m. With the departure of Gallas and Senderos 3 defenders will join the club with Thomas and Hoyet adding to the squad as cover and Traore returning to the fold. With the departure of Adebayor expect 1 forward to come in and join up with Jay Simpson returning to the squad (at least until January). The departure of Eboue will enable the Toure bothers to realise their dream of playing club football together. All in all the following will strengthen the squad and Le Boss will balance the books again!!

Arsenal In:
18: Brede Hangeland (28) (Fulham) £10m
6: Thomas Vermaelen (23) (Ajax) £7m + future payments
27: Mamadou Sakho (19) (PSG) £5m + Gallas + future payments

  Hello, just to point our to you "police officers" and passers by saying about you saw Tevez near Old Trafford,Anfield,CoMs & Goodison, he is away on international duty with Argentina so we know that is pure lies, but he will be signing for Manchester City according to Pablo Zabaleta.
  AVFC TRANSFER RUMOURS:

Firstly Owen to villa not everton as he don't want to go back to merseyeside. Next huddlestone and hutton look likely plus david bentley if he is 10mil or less. Hleb was one but doubt that defour i would love as he has been rated and discribed better than barry who left for the money as far as i am conserned.
  Liverpool will be signing HUGE numbers of players this season. Benitez's £25mil budget has no changed. Benitez will spend big, however this is primiarily due to the fact that Xabi Alonso will leave to Madrid for big money.

Liverpool signings:

Gonzalo Higuain (26mil + add ons)
David Silva (18mil)

These will be the 2 big signings. There will be no Aguero's, Villa's, Ribery's etc as they would all cost in excess of £35mil

Javi martinez (11mil + add ons)
Glen Johnson (10mil)
Adam Johnson (5.5mil + Hamill loan for the season to cover for Downing's injury) A bargain and even if he doesn't make it, his market value will increase.

These will be signed for the first team squad.

Luc Castaignos (2mil)
Jesus Fernandez (200k)

These players will be signed and kept in the reserves until ready for the first team.

kelly & San Jose will battle it out for the 4th centre back position

Leaving will be:
Alonso (27mil) Babel (7mil) Riera (unfortunately 10mil) Degen (1.5mil) Dossena (4.5mil) Brouwer (200k) Anderson (900k with buy back option) Hobbs (400k) Hyypia & Pennant (free) Voronin (3.5mil) Leto (2.5mil)
  WATFORD rumours – Alan Curbishley to be appointed new manager working with Malky Mackay and Nigel Gibbs – financial position has improved very slightly and that will allow Tommy Smith to stay but Lee Williamson, John Eustace and Tamas Priskin will be leaving. Danny Rose to return on a season long loan.
  Liverpool cash plus players deal with athletico. Possible swap Arbeloa and Benayoun 10–15mill for Aguero. He wanted to sign for pool a year or so ago but we wouldn't pay up for him (25mill) Athletico Madrid have openly enquired about a deal for our two so would it not make sense.

If or when we lose Alonso, Gerard poss move back into midfield with Masch (who's going knowhere)and Aguero takes up the role Gez played all year.

Silva would be a bonus, but a player that i think we need and a player we could afford if Alonso goes to Madrid. More money in from the likes of Babel and Dosena, i imagine yet again we'll sign a substandard right back, if that didn't work then we'd still have Agger and Skrtel centre–back and Carra a great right back if a little slow.

In short, stop panicking LFC fans, we've loads of options, loads of time, a great team and a great manager!
  Liverpool and Man City have had £11m bids for Javier Martinez accepted even though the player will speak to both clubs he has his heart set on Liverpool
  To the numpty who wrote this ''Fergie is not stupid enough to pay that amount of money for Tevez. He is a forward who managed 5 league goals in a season.
So he runs around alot and some of the idiots at OT join in with the sign him up song. They get on Berbatovs back when he has the most assists in the Premiership.''
First of all, Tevez would have scored a plethora of goals, had he have been given a starting chance by Fergie, and as for your point about Berbatov, it is a lie, as Van Persie actually had the highest assists in the EPL.
Now for rumours:
Arsenal will sign Vermaelen from Ajax for £11m, and with the sales of eboue, senderos, gallas, Wenger will sign either Yaya Toure, Cana, Mahamadou Diarra or Palombo – all D.M.'s that could potentially also play C.B.
This leaves the Adebayor situation, if an offer of over £22m comes in, Wenger will sell, and buy a replacement, possibly pogrebnyak, or maybe Milevskyi. Otherwise, he will keep Adebayor, and hope that he recovers his form and starts scoring many goals again
BTW, to those who believe Wenger will sell 10 and buy 10 – When has he done that in the past?????
  Rafael Benitez will raid former club Valencia for giant Nikola Zigic. The 6'8 striker is seen as perfect back–up for Fernando Torres as he can most certainly play the lone striker role. Zigic would cost Benitez around £8 million.

Juninho Pernembucano has been attracting many premier league clubs, but expect him to join Genoa with Hernan Crespo already there and Ricardo Quaresma all but signed.

Sporting Lisbon face losing some of their key players with Miguel Veloso, Joao Moutinho and Celsinho attracting attention throughout Europe. Bolton, Everton, Villa and Manchester City are interested in all 3 players.

Expect a Real Madrid fire sale.
Leaving are:
Cannavaro (Free)
Marcelo (10m)
M.Diarra (12m)
Sneijder (12m)
Van Der Vaart (15m)
Robben (17m)
Van Nistelrooy (2m)
Huntelaar (22m)
Saviola (free)

In will be:
Gallas (5m)
Santon (8m)
Senna (6m)
Ronaldo (70m)
Kaka (57m)
Hernandes (6m)
Adebayor (25m)

and the suprise package . . Owen on a Free!
Seems farfetch'd but I have been reliably told that Real are willing to meet his crazy wage demands on a pay as you play deal.

Welcome the new Galacticos

The Matador
  Oh and on a sidenote, Tevez will simply be released by United, with nobody following up interest due to his high price. It is likely that Tevez will train with a team, but will not be signed until Kia drops his asking price. I am told that the front runners for the deal are Inter due to their aging strike force.

The Matador
  Sheffield united are going to put a 1.5 mil bid in for Doncaster's midfielder Brian Stock
  Real Madrid WILL DEFINITELY sign Xabi Alonso, it is just a case of when and for how much. Benitez insists he won't sell for less thatn £30mil, but Madrid want to do business at around £26mil. Benitez is being stubborn. Madrid have offered Wesley Sneijder/Robben/Nistelrooy/Van–der–vaart in swap deals but Benitez is not interested in any of these players. The only players Benitez would be interested in are Ramos and Higuain. Madrid have rejected any chance of Ramos leaving, as they want to keep their best spanish players. However, the case with Higuain is different. Real Madrid plan to sign Villa, Kaka, Ronaldo AND Ribery. Higuain does not fit into the first team plans. Liverpool value him at around £22mil, Real Madrid value him at £28mil. A deal is a very real possibility, and the value would be closer to the £22mil than the £28mil.

Also, Real Madrid forward forward line up next season:

Alonso Diarra
Ronaldo Kaka Ribery
Villa

WOW
  Liverpool will keep hold of Xabi Alonso.

They will sell babel, voronin, leto, dossena, degen, itjande and a few others to raise £20mil on top of their £20mil transfer budget.

They will then sign:

Glen Johnson (10mil) Right back competition for Degen

David Silva (17mil) Can play in any 3 positions in the 4–2–3–1 behind Torres

Javi Martinez (10mil rising to 14mil) Although Alonso will be kept, Benitez believes he is something special, and will spend big to sign him

and the shock transfer:

Ruud Van Nistelrooy (2mil) Provide good back up to Torres.
  I've just started a summer placement as part of my degree at spurs lodge and, although the players obviously aren't around, there is a lot of behind the scenes work being done regarding players and the new kit sponsor for next season.
after mansion pulled out of their deal, mr levy was hell bent on trying to pursuade holsten to come back yet again in order to please the fans and raise their morale again. this however never materialised, not through lack of trying but because the holsten brand simply doesn't have enough money anymore to support a premier league team for 3–4 years. expect the new sponsor to be either another online gambling company or virgin, but only if virgin agree to a colour change just for the logo on the shirt. as for players, expect a mass clearout of fringe players that haven't lived up to potential, and for these players to be replaced with real quality players.

  New Reading manager Brendan Rodgers has given Sir John Madjeski a list of targets for the summer. Expect Hunt to leave with Fulham the most likely destination. Surman from Southampton will be the replacement.

Rodgers will also raid former club Watford with Tommy Smith, Ross Jenkins and youngster Eddie Oshodi [never heard of him] all being lined up for a combined £2m. He will also re–sign Jack Cork on loan whom he also had at Watford from Chelsea.
  In response to Liverpool signing Kevin Davies, he could be the mentor to N'Gog and Nemeth that McAllister was to Stevie G and Danny Murphy.

  I know someone who works in the offices at Man Utd and they said that with money getting tighter Man U will looks for some foreign bargains. They've targetted a trio of players who will probably cost a combined total of £12–15m. First up is promising Danish goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen of Vejle, who has been dubbed the new Peter Schmeichel. Secondly there's Dutch midfielder Sergio Hellings who is owned by Ajax, but was on loan in Belgium this season. He's been compared to Frank Rijkaard. Finally Portuguese winger Marco Ferreira of Sporting CP is being targetted as a potential replacement for Ronaldo.

  MCFC Rumours what i've heard!!
City look set to sign javi martinez for around £8m. A mate of mine also believes city will go for jonas gutierrez from newcastle. Also a rumour that i hope does'nt materiaise is that mr hughes likes Nicklas Bendtner from arsenal – not what we need.

Personally i'd like us to go for Luis Fabiano from Sevilla and Lucho from Porto, top players. Expect lots of bids but maybe 4–5 to actually materialise!

Never dull at City!!!

  To the man who said arsenal where to sign villa veloso and sagna theres 2 problems with that

  Carlos Tevez will sign for Manchester United this summer. Here's why:

– LFC were linked with him and it looked like there was a strong chance of getting him but LFC's spending spree has been severly reduced because of how much in debt they are.

Man City are expected to be offering £25 million for Samuel Eto'o to Barcalona and there are rumours of them bidding for Berbatov aswell. If the Eto'o deal goes through and everything is accepted then City will have Eto'o, Robinho, Vassel, Benjani, Caicedo & possibly Berbatov.

Carlos Tevez has said that he wants to stay in the Cheshire area as his family have just settled in and he doesn't wish to get them on the move again. Well, Would Tevez be any better going to City? Is he guaranteed first team football at City with all these other strikers that City have?

Man United will offer the £32 million they need to offer to sign Tevez to Kia/MSI and I think if United do sign him then I think he will play alot more regularly than he did towards the end of this season as I think SAF has started to realize just how much better he is that Berbatov.

  HIBS MANAGER
I have it on good authority that the new manager for the mighty Hibees will be Hearts Legend – John Robertson. Rod Petrie, as always, has kept his cards close to his chest and has persuaded JR to cross the "great divide". John has been looking for a route back into mainstream management, and this post represents a real challenge and appeals to the mischevious streak in his character. You heard it from BIG C first!!!
  There is a guy called who works at Anfield who i will call Willo for now; He has told me that Rafa has been talking to Ruud van Nistelrooy`s agent aka "kingfunk" and that Ruud will be joining liverpool on a two year contract withen the next two weeks for a transfer fee of £2m and wages of £80grand p/w.
  LFC News

In response to El Torro, it is a big rumour/fact that Kevin Davies has been looked at. The issue is not age but price, Bolton apparently wanted too much (6M) and LFC have baulked at that price. I bought this rumour to these posts two months ago and i have since had the rumour confirmed by someone at Melwood. Whether LFC have moved on i don't know. But Davies was, according to the rumours, Rafa's first target several years ago but for reasons i don't know went for Crouch instead.

Secondly Owen would not be welcome, loyalty is a big component for Rafa, and that is something Owen is lacking as well as class, fitness and a need to have pound notes in his pocket to name but threee negatives (there are plenty more). No offence but NUFC over Liverpool in 2005? Do me a favour.

Oh and thirdly to all LFC fans, please do not read anything into these 'Kop facing ruin' stories the media have decided to rake up. These accounts have just been released but everyone in LFC knew the position last year, so what has happened in the last year or so? We bought Keane, Mascherano, Dossena, Riera and big new contracts to Benitez, Gerrard, Kuyt, Agger, Torres. . hmmm a club on the verge of dire financial straits?

Don't believe everything you read in the gutter (Sun) press, it will not make any difference to LFC's spending.

No player will be signed for LFC over £25M so we can stop posting these 'rumours' we'll ask the price and move on if the price is too much, simple as.

  Alonso has decided to stay at Anfield.

Liverpool are trying to get deals for:

A right back: Glen Johnson OR Darijo Srna. Liverpool will not go above £10mil for either player.

A versatile attacking midfielder: David Silva (max 18mil) OR Ezequiel Lavezzi (max 20mil) Higuain would be targeted if Real Sign 2+ of Ronaldo, Ribery, Silva and Valencia. He would cost £25mil.

These 2 signings are the priority.

Liverpool have a £20mil budget to work with. There will be a mass clearout, but not of any first team regulars. Leaving will be Itjande, Dossena, Hobbs, Degen, Anderson, Leto, Babel, Voronin, El Zhar & Brouwer. This will raise around 25mil while the departures of Hyypia and Pennant will significantly free up the wage bill.

Liverpool will also try and negotiate a deal for Javi Martinez for £10mil. This deal is complicated. Bilbao are almost certain to lose Fernando Llorente this summer to a big team and are keen to bolster their forward line. However, it does not seem this transfer will go through until the end of the transfer window as teams try to negotiate a lower price. Liverpool will try and broker a deal to sign Martinez for £10mil and loan him back to Bilbao until January. Within this period (July to January) Liverpool will also loan out David Ngog to Bilbao. In January, Bilbao will use the money from the Llorente deal to sign another player and Ngog will either return to Anfield or stay in Spain for the rest of the season.

With Liverpool in need of a back up striker, they will look to shock everybody by bringing in Ruud Van Nistelrooy for a fee of £2mil on a 2 year contract. It is this deal that will convince Luc Castaignos to join for £2mil.

Other young players Liverpool are chasing are Jesus Fernandez (200k),

  Everyone Shutup?
You, me and everybody else doesn't know whats going to happen over the summer so stop trying to big yourself up. all the guys claiming there the ones that posted this that and the other, wow? you had a guess? and the chances are it werent even you.
sorry about my little rant guys(:

time for some rumours? likely transfer?no definate facts about who's going where just what players have actual said:

Ribery:
Personally i think he'll be at Milan or Real depending on the kaka deal, AC need something to pick there fans up and there not exactly short of cash as it is, real is probably the most likely destination but who knows right? lets just wait and see.

Manchester City:
People are linking City with everyone these days, but in my own OPINION i think that its all paper talk, if you feel differently then fine, but i reckon Sparky' is smarter than that, i believe he will build and incredible side, okay it will take a while but a side with Robinho, barry, given, ireland ETC. can't be a bad one right?


Valencia:
This one for me tells us the ronaldo ending, according to sky sports news on the 07June2009 both Manchester United AND Real have tabled bids for the Valencia ace, well if united sign him then ronaldo is surely off to madrid, if madrid do then theres no need for ronaldo, okay ron is in a different league if you look at attacking but Valencia is a more rounded player with a defensive vision that Ronaldo hasn't even got.

Glen Johnson:
i think that honestly he'll be at Manchester City or still be at portsmouth next year, i don't want to hear stuff about a get out clause in the players contract because only Portsmouth and Glen know whether it exists or not. on the basis that it doesn't i reckon it will go down to a bidding war between Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, and ofcourse City can go all the way upto the Hundreds of millions, where as Chelsea will most likely make a 15 mil take it or leave it offer and i can see liverpool going 9 mil and city going between 17 and 20, okay might not happen but its my opinion.

Liverpool:
i don't know the extent of the reported Financial meltdown at anfield, but that doesn't mean they've got 50–60 million or 50–60 pence. i reckon it will be nothingg new up there, liverpool fans are hoping for the next big talent to be brought in whereas most fans have got the right idea well the same as me anyway, i think they'll be the 'big' signing and the others, you know the 'Robbie Keane' and the Low League Foreigners. but again who knows right?

Manchester United, Arsenal & Chelsea:
I Actual have no idea about these 3, okay united perhaps either Ronaldo out or staying plus the valencia deal, and either tevez signs permanantly which i hope will happen or benzema being brought in which again will be exciting to see what finally happens. Everyone has opinions about arsenal and im not going to criticise them but for me all they need is a DM an experienced one, they have Van Persie as an out and out scorer aswell as Eduardo. with Kolo looking stronger and stronger all the time and sagna, gibbs, clichy and Djourou established as first teams it all looks fine, if gallas leaves which i doubt then Hangeland looks likely to come in, both roughly the same calibre but with Hangeland being better in the air and younger, but then again he wants to stay put.
Chelsea im not sure about i believe a good few Russians will come in reccomended by Hiddink but apart from that i have no idea, but im sure they'll be a big player coming in along the lines of Villa, Pato, Aguero just someone unexpected and last minute, could even be berbatov? very very unlikely but the did want him last year plus we need to bolster our midfield and i wouldn't mind seeing Essien or mikel in a united strip next season, but that's probably more fantasy than rumour.

  Liverpool FC fans!!!
Friday I was having coffee before going to work in North West London, I was having a laugh with a gooner friend about the ups and downs of summer tabloid rubbish when a gentleman having coffee near us made the comment : 'Liverpool were sold at 7.00 am (on Friday!)We asked who has bought Liverool? 'The buyer is from the Middle East' he answered. We know this gentleman knows Wenger, Sugar and many other people in the know so it made us wonder. If Liverpool were bought on Friday by middle easterns, why is there a delay letting fans know? Anyway, this is from the horse's mouth, beleive me.
You heard it here first, whether true or false I can't say.
So keep your eyes peeled.

Number one Potter
  Scottish Football Rumours – NONE. .before anymore Celtic and Rangers fans make a complete titty of themselves on here about ins/outs lets remember the facts. 1 – Rangers are in serious debt and as such will not be "splashing the cash" on anyone over £3m, and unfortunatley now that Man City have joined Chelsea in the money stakes it probably ruels out almost every player still contracted in the EPL, as the selling clubs will now hike prices accordingly. 2 – With the cash crisis at Ibrox common knowledge, which buying club in their right minds are going to offer over the odds for what will only be decent squad players IF McGregor/Bougherra/Ferguson/Boyd/Mendes are touted around, expect £2.5m/£2.5m/500k/£2.5m/£2m respectively for these players. Currently, Steve Davis is Rangers best asset and could command a first team berth in all but the top 4 in England so the possibility remains that an offer in the region of £5m may see him move back south. 3 – John Fleck, £10m was the gers fans and certain media outlets valuation of this youngster. He undoubtedly has a decent future in the game BUT for goodness sake lets get real, did anyone see him in the recent Scotland v England U19 game? He was anonymous and not only outshone by most of the England team but also most of the Scotland team too. Give the lad a break, let him develop and hope he's not another Steven Thomson/John McDonald/Simon Donnelly or Mark Burchill, remember them, the great white hopes? 3– Celtic, no guarantee of champions league this year, 2 qualifiers, the 2nd of which sees them (if they progress through round 1) up against some real quality potentially, means that they will also fail to attract teh big names fans want. 4 – Celtic, no manager yet. .so how do you know who stays and who comes in?. .5 – Setanta, will they walk away from their current deal due to their own financial state? If they do where is the money coming from to support Scottish Football? ESPN are rumoured to be considering buying them but will they see the "potential" in the deal on the table? – Therefore my fellow Scottish football supporters, lets wait. .don't give everyone else on here the platform to ridicule you further. He who lasts laugh, lasts longest. .
  Would Liverpool fans get a clue and stop linking the club to top strikers like Eto'o, Lavezzi, Aguero, Tevez, etc. Rafa won't change the formation to save his life. These strikers won't come to Anfield to warm the bench and play when Torres is injured.

Silva is a possibility, although Rafa seems unwilling to part with the supposed £25m+ being demanded. The more likely option is Rafa reopening his interest in Bentley, who it seems, can be obtained for about half the price of Silva.

The right back area is still causing problems and it seems that Rafa wants to bring either Glen Johnson or Rafinha to Anfield. Johnson being prefered, but at about twice the price.

On a MANURE note, will people PLEASE stop linking Scholes and Giggs away from the club, neither will leave, especially not to teams like Stoke, Hull and Birmingham, as I have read recently. If and when Sir Alex decides not to offer them playing contracts, they will join the coaching staff, or retire.

And for the love of Pete, will people stop playing Football Manager before coming on here. Teams will not sign 8–15 players and rearrange thier entire squad based on who had a good season last year. It just doesn't happen that way in real life.

{Spike}
  Truth be told, some people has been talking crap around here. Specially about Liverpool. The Scousers didn't had the money to sign Tevez in the first place, and now, with their new financial issues I doubt they'll even sign Silva. Thinking of Aguero and Lavezzi is also riddiculous for you Scousers.

Now, about the Ginger Prince to Bolton or Stoke and Gary Neville to Middlesbrough. When Scholesy leaves UTD it will be to play at Oldham, nowhere else, when will that happen I dunno, but he most certainly won't go to any other club. Gaz on the other hand, my actually consider going somewhere else so he could play more and make it to the World Cup, but not in damnation would it be Middlesbrough or any other Championship club.

I expect UTD to make a good offer to Tevez, as much as Joorabchian is asking actually. However, Tevez may leave anyway, I'm not sure about that. The Ronaldo deal is pretty uncertain actually, the latter years it was pretty clear he would stay 'cause Fergie said so, but right now, he it's all shrouded.

If Tevez goes I expect Fergie to give more chances to Danny Welbeck and Kiko. Benzema and any world class winger will only arrive if Ronaldo goes.

One last thing. Giggs is going nowhere, and please, I mean pleaaaaaase, check your bloody spelling!! You could check on the web before writing stupid mistakes!!

  If Real Madrid ask for Alonso, Benitez will quote £30mil or £5mil + Higuain. Madrid plan to sign Ribery, Ronaldo AND Silva anyway so Higuain can be replaced, however there is no player they would prefer as an attacking holding midfielder than Alonso. The swap is more likely to occur.
  Sheffield United are getting these players in the summer. I know this from my mate who's uncle washes Kevin Blackwell's wife's car.

Good times are here again after we were robbed in the play off's
  GCFC NEWS " Let us talk the truth brothers . . "

The appointment of Tony Mowbray is now beyond rumour and eases into the fact bracket. What is now becoming clear also ( allegedly ) is that his appointment may have an equal amount to do with his willingness to accept a spartan spending regime

Income streams are drying up. The likelyhood of Setanta making good on next years TV money is questionable and the SFA do not have the resources to step in again. The major income driver is the sale of season books and these are appreciably down. The club have gone for a relatively low key appointment and recognise that a last minute rush to renew is not a likely consequence thus the total sale is likely to be down on the previous term for the first time since the new stadium opened. There is no chance of a capital injection by donation , or sweetheart loan from Desmond or any other board member. Banks are wary of lending to any football club and Celtic although not in any real debt , do not , with their reducing income look a good bet. The days when a club in the SPL will be given a £ 40 m overdraft are over.

Realistically then it will be a " eat what you kill " regime. There is some good news as the departure of Balde, JVH, Nakamura and Hartley frees up approx £ 70 k weekly on the wage front. This may allow one or possibly two marque Bosman signings , should a star be willing to hitch himself to the tic . However if a large number of additions are to be made these will require to be comprised of loans, or extremely astute forays into teh lesser tapped markets of Eatern and Central Europe, South East Asia , and Africa. The obvious alternative is to create funds by teh sale of player stock. In this team that means Boruc, McGeady or Brown.

Boruc's form and conduct last season substantially reduced his market value and the main players at the top level are no longer interested. This may leave the spotlight on the other two. They are still prized assets and might from a comitted bidder attract a joint fee of £ 18 m . Should either or both be sold, the competency with which those funds are utilised will be the acid test of Mowbrays management regime. a poor return would inevitably allow Rangers to take the title and mean his dismissal.The safer route accordingly is to simply " make do and mend "

Hard to be sure but I'd wager his first choice team would go something like this :

Boruc
Hinkel
Bosman L/B
Loovens
Caldwell
Brown
Crosas
Maloney
McGeady
Bosman Striker

  Hi all,
as i am a member of a private luxury group called asmallworld. I saw the agent of Diego Forlan is looking for a high profil house in Milan.
  Mark Hughes is desperate to land Joleon Lescott and will offer Micah Richards AND Jo in exchange.

Moyes will be tempted . . and will target Joao Moutinho and Steven Taylor as his other purchases this summer.

Another swap deal could include Joe Ledley and Victor Anichebe.

Only Andy Van der Meyde will be cut adrift . . to Blackburn or Stoke.
  Rafa's lookin at some really good value signings to replace some of the fringe players in the squad, as part of his wage slash. Inward bound we have targeted guys like 'Toni' Barragan, Matty Bates, Sylvain Distin, Micheal Johnson, Sanli Tuncay, Javier Saviola and Jordi Gomez. Not all of these obviously can be tempted, but expect some of these tp replace Degen Itjande Sami Pennant Voronin and MAYBE Leto (Dependant on work permit – Rafa wants to keep him), Babel (wierdo anyway, waste of talent) Dossena (worked very hard and Rafa wants to show some faith, also our two LBs are very injury–prone) and Lucas (Depends if we get Johnson or somebody cheap enough, and offers come in, Rafa likes him, but hes the natural choice to be replace when the other 3 CMs are taken into account). I don't think people realise how high LFC pays its fringe lads in wages, guys like Itjande Leto and Lucas are taking home £35–40k a week almost. Ridiculous.
  Hey!

This isn't one of those wild pitched rumours that everyone puts on this site after playing 15hours non–stop of football manager! My best friend has been working for Deloitte in Glasgow for 6 years and for the past 2 weeks he has been supervising a graduate from university. Everyone knows that Deloitte deal with all off the finaincial aspects of the football leagues north and south of the border. So if any club makes a deal, the paperwork goes through the accountants at Deloitte to make sure everything is in order from payment to tax. Since the turn of the month, any new graduates help with the paperwork of the leagues as it tends to get busier. My friend deals with small corporate so hes never dealt with the 'football' side of things but cause hes supervising the graduate hes getting some news. . anyway. . im a man utd fan and he got some goss from down south on some dealings already starting. .
Arsenal In. .

Outs. .
Kuschazk £2m Sunderland, Gibson £4m Hull, Manucho £5m Hull, and my biggest disappointment Tevez loan expired.

These are only a few of the clubs dealings, apparently theres plenty more. The clubs put in the paperwork before sending it to the other club cause it has to be seen and signed off that they are abiding by the law. These are certainly not done deals bar Dodo for man utd. Any clubs can reject the offers but its just what the paperwork is showing as it passes thro Deloitte!!!

Ill keep you posted for any other news!!

Gibby
  Cardiff City has responded to Birmingham's £5million "Take it or leave it" Offer for Roger Johnson by saying "Leave it"! HOWEVER the deal could be resurrected as a possible deal involving slightly less money (approx £4million) and Kevin Phillips moving to Cardiff has been proposed.

If this fails then Birmingham will look elsewhere for a centre back – possibly looking to take a risk on West Ham's injury prone defender Danny Gabbidon.
  Trust this. This is the news that i got from Arsenal staff. The signing will be like below. Arsenal signings will be:

Ins:
Benzema (Lyon)
Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
Yaya Toure (Barcelona)
Denilson (Real Madrid)

Out:
Van Persie (Real Madrid)
Sagna (Real Madrid)
Senderos (AC Milan)
  I work at a luxury car dealership. we lease lots of cars to clubs. We've just had Kyle Naughton of Sheff Utd return his car as he will be joining Man United next season. That is right. Man United. Manucho is part exchange
  Rangers Summer News

As we all know the club are looking to reduce the squad number so expect to see the following players leave:

Ferguson, McGregor, Adam, McCulloch, Gow, Beasly, Smith, Velicka, Webster, Broadfoot, Daily(gone) & Hemdani(gone)

In will come 6 players from the following:
Barr(Falkirk), McArthur(Hamilton), Brunt(West Brom), Jones(Sunderland), Smith(Newcastle), Driver(Hearts), Hreidarsson(Portsmouth)& McCormack(Cardif)
  Liverpool fans need not worry too much, our financial situation isn't great, but Its not as bad as the media is making out. Rafa still has 20M to spend plus money from sold players.

He is in Spain trying to talk to David Silvas agent. Although it's reported that Madrid want Silva it's unlikely as they are also keen on Ribery. So why would they want 3 wingers (Ronaldo being number 3) Silva could be a red next year but it's not definite. Rafa will also try and bring Crouch back to Anfield for around 5M. If Johnson doesn't come then a bid for either Rafinha or Ramos will be made. David Villa will sign for Madrid also in a deal between 40–50M.

InsideR
  Breaking News.

Seen Dermot Desmon outside Parkhead with the new duo who will win Celtic the SPL trophy back , the duo is not Keane & Lennon or any other identified candidates , it is none other than fan favourites Rosie & Jim.

But seriously please stop trying to identify who will take over the hotseat , nobody knows not even Dermot Desmond , so if you magically know more than him please but a lottery ticket on , and then leave the country.

Rumours

Expect alot of players leaving the exit door at Ibrox , none of which being the main players but the likes of Lee McCulloch and Charlie Adam , although they may be held on to because of the lack of midfeilders for the beginning of next season.

Celtic have no targets just now , simply because we have no manager , in all honesty i'd like to see Davie Clarkson at Celtic , i think Scott McDonald is evidence of how brilliantly players can come from the other SPL clubs and make themselves known.

But no targets until new manager , i just hope the new manager gives fringe players their chance as they are magical players

Other rumours.

Ronaldo – who cares longest saga ever.
Silva – will not go to Liverpool , may join Real but has stated if Valencia are able to keep him he would like that.
Anybody going to liverpool is fairly unlikely in all honesty.

  Manchester united rumours


ins

valencia–16mil$
tevez–25mil$(he loves manchester united fans)
and expect a midfielder to sign as hargo and scholes are not at their best with giggs playing only in cups
someone like veloso or dodo from brasil

outs
ronny not leaving as he is expected to stay for another 2 years so that he can see rmad spending big and then moving

definitely leaving are gibson,manucho,campbell,park ji sung(to his native country korea)
  Manchester united will release tevez and he'll join man city as liverpool will not be able to spend any big money. Cristiano ronaldo will stay as real madrid have signed kaka and can't afford spending very very big. So, united will not sign any wingers (valencia, ribery, sanchez and silva) but the void left by tevez will be filled by benzema.
United will sign le mans keeper yohann pele for free. Van der sar will retire in january. Hargreaves will not make it untill new year if he could, so, united will sign an experienced DM either gattuso or De rossi. Dodo is a done deal from nacional brazil and also one of douglas costa (gremio) or feghouli (grenoble).
United will win the EPL again and chelsea will be 2nd. Liverpool will finish 3rd and benitez will be kicked out for taking long time reading poems about sir alex ferguson.
  Portsmouth rumours upson to join 6m,kyle walker and naughton 3m +nugent,manuel fernandes 7m ,owen garvan 3m,g oneil 3.5m,tuncay 7.5m saviola loan,sekou cisse 4m,kallil 2m,benjani 2.5m
  Agreeing with LB I would also like to confirm reorts that Driver will sign on Monday as a medical has been arranged.

Other news I have been picking up from other sources is that Matthew Mills will move to Birmingham with the fee rumoured to be around 2 million. Sorry Rovers Fans!

Birmingham seem intent on staying the division and by splashing the 10 million on Benitez expect to see Cameron Jerome depart to Cardiff to replace Ross McCormack who will join Burnley for around 3.5million.

Alexander Hleb will return to England with Manchester City very interested. Distin will join Arsenal and Antonio Floro Flores a pacy striker come right winger will hook up with fellow Italian Gianfranco Zola at WHU for a fee around 5 million.

  Rumor is that Peter Crouch is on his way back to Anfield this summer. Rafa is under financial constraints due to them useless cowboys in control and is hoping to bring back crouch, which will also help with the 6+5 rule. I heard from a source at Melwood that the bid is 4 million pounds, half of what he was sold for, although crouch is in no hurry to return to the Kop
  To all you people saying liverpool won't sign anyone you are wrong rafa will be fully incharge of buying and selling and he will sell these players
lucas–8mil–buy–back clause–10mil
intandje–2mil
el zhar–2mil
vorinin–4mil
arbeloa–5mil
dossena–6mil
reira–8mil
babel–10mil–buy back clause–14mil
this will give rafa 45mil but that is all he will be given the owners will not give him any money but 45mil is enough and he will sign
GLEN JOHNSON–his buy clause is 12mil we will offer 5mil plus 7mil from the crouch deal chelsea will also bid for him but is likely to come to us for first team football.
JAVI MARTINEZ–he will come in for 10mil man city will also bid for him but will come to liverpool because of the spanish contingent at liverpool and because their a bigger club.
TUNCAY SANLI–will sign for 6mil plus spearing will go on loan to middlesboro.
JUAN MATA–14mil.
this will leave 10mil for a backup striker

  Hey, i'm the original 6+5 guy – remember? I had the mate in the French press who was giving me inside knowledge on whats happening at FIFA? Anyway, i was roundly slagged–off at the time by worried Premier League fans, concerned that their clubs would have to start producing their own players. WELL, i was just speaking to my pal and Europe's 'top clubs' better enjoy this transfer window, as by the summer after next, there will be limits on how many imported players each team can field. 'BUT THAT'S ILLEGAL!' you cry – no it's not. Foreign players can still be signed (and paid) like any employees in any trade in the world – but IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE/EUROPA LEAGUE SQUAD 6 players on every team–sheet must have been produced by, or played in their designated country for at least 3 years. Similar rules have been used in other leagues in Europe and in European competitions in the 1990's. This won't effect teams not playing in European competition, but it will shake things up BIG TIME. I'm not a lawyer, but my mate says FIFA have approved it in principal and they have some pretty astute legal minds on the case, so it is not against any European legislation – nobody is losing employment oppertunities or being discriminated against. It is being backed by Franz Beckenbauer, Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini too, so i'd suspect it's really going to happen. Expect an announcement in the next few weeks for the rule to be installed after the World Cup. Next summer will see many clubs across the continent buying only homegrown players in preperation – i just hope there's enough to go round! It may even get to the stage where clubs are paying like £12 million for fairly average English midfielders . . . WAIT A MINUTE, THAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK!!! GASP!!!
  RedReport
Ok i know i usually concentrate on Liverpool rumours but this time round i got news from all around Europe.

Ronaldo is going to Madrid.The deal is 90%done all that's stalling it is that Ronaldo wants to make sure Kaka signs before he joins up.
Daivd Villa will join Madrid after sucsessful talks with the club.
Benzema and Ribery are both close to Barcelona moves which will see Eto'o shipped out to Juventus and Henry moved to the bench.
Silva will be at Liverpool next season as he dosent see where he would fit in with the likes of Ronaldo Kaka Villa Robben and other probable signing Ibrahamovic
However Madrid and Chelsea will still fight to Hijack the move so Rafa is holding behind the scenes talks with Juan Mata in case the Silva deal falls through.
Zhrikov and Riise and in a straight fight to be Barcas new LB.
Liverpool are keeping tabs on Juve striker David Treziguet as he says he wants to leave the Italians and head for a new challenge.Liverpool are likely to make Andrea Dossena a part of the deal.
According to reports the French strike won't mind playin second fiddle to Torres as long as he gets a role to play in the CL
A.C milan are set to sign Marek Hamsik as Kakas replacement.
the head of the D.I.C is in talks withe Liverpool to become a thrid owner to the club with the Americans ready to hand him control on Transfer Budgets etc.
Lastly Manchester United will sign 2 first team players next season. .Valencia from Wigan and Scott Brown from Celtic

Believe what you want. . if you have feefback its welcome. . Champions League to be world Class next year!
  Max 6 players coming in for arsenal this summer, with 2 being youngsters: Sakho, Hangeland, Matuidi (tho im still holding out for Yaya), Dzerko, Hazard, Edge
rosicky given til december to prove fitness, otherwise will b offloaded in january window, silvestre will see out his contract, fabianski maybe sent out on loan, in which case expect a loan/free keeper to come in, eg Kameni, RVP will sign a new contract, eduardo will have his first injury free season, traore, hoyte, lansbury, barazite all to return from loan, nordveit to be promoted either next season or season after, merida, e–thomas, frimpong, sunu, denilson, shea all out on loan.
out will be adebayor, gallas, eboue, randall, mannone, simpson, senderos.
in a fantasy world: Yaya, Hangeland, Richards, Dzerko, Green all in, with Fabianski, Randall, Silvestre, Gallas, Denilson, Simpson, Adebayor, Senderos all out.
  Regarding the LFC & Real Madrid Rumours. . .

Please see what Guillem Balague has to say as he is quite accurate

Please stop posting OTT rumours. .

Rafa DOES have money to spend, the loss is from the parent company of LFC NOT the club which made 10m profit last year. Hicks and Gilett will have to pay the interest on the LFC loan from the profits/sell offs from their other sporting ventures. Rafa knows this, and was told months back exactly how much he would be allowed to spend this summer.

I expect one big signing and the rest will be squad signings as we are very nearly there with the strength and depth of the squad.

Alonso will decide whether he stays or goes as Rafa has told him he wants to keep him, but will not stand in hs way if he wants to leave. Expect Javi Martinez to come in if Alonso leaves. Martinez is very similar to alonso and can add more goals in that position.

I do not know who the big signing will be. Guess we will have to wait and see.

YNWA
  Arsene Wenger will sign 4/6 players at most and will get rid of 4. He will also get a few youngsters for the youth team. Arsenal to get taken over by Alisher Usmanov in the next few months. All transfers funded by 25m budget and money from sales.

Arsenal in:
Igor Akinfeev 7.5m from CSKA Moscow
Bruno Alves 10m from Porto
Lorik Cana 10m from Marseille
Edin Dzeko 15/25m from Wolfsburg
Ryan Babel 12.5m from Liverpool

Arsenal out:
Mikel Silvestre 2m to French Club
Philippe Senderos 5m to AC Milan
Manuel Almunia 3m to Spanish Club
Emmanuel Adebayor 25m to AC Milan

AFC09
  New Real Madrid/Liverpool rumour

Liverpool will sign Xabi Alonso in a swap deal that will see Gonzalo Higuain + around 6mil move to Anfield. Real Madrid are trying to secure deals for the following attacking midfielders:
Kaka, Ronaldo, Ribery, Silva and Valencia. They want ALL 5 (though Valencia may turn them down for Man United). However Higuain will be sacrificed, as will Robben and Sneijder.

Liverpool have already identified Javi Martinez as his replacement for £12mil.

Liverpool will also bid for Glen Johnson for £10mil, and this is where he will go as he does not think he could displace Bosingwa at Chelsea.

Real Madrid will also move for Bruno Alves and David Villa.
