Just heard a massive rumour last night at Man United's match Wednesday night. Comes from a very reliable source who told me about numerous United rumours in the past such as Nani and Anderson last Summer, Ben Foster a few years ago, Veron, Kleberson, I could go on. The rumour is that Owen has had enough of the Geordies getting on his back with playing for England and NCfc, so has secured a deal to go to United for cash + one players. Not sure who the one players is who will be leaving United, but a very gd chance that it will be Brown (not signed a new contract) or O'Shea (really hope he does not leave).
Other news is that Bardsley will go to Sunderland in January after his loan has finished for the rest of the season with a view to a permanent deal.
There is been the usual names linked in January, but IF Sir Alex gets Owen I very much doubt he would purchase anyone else until Summer
Shocks at top clubs but all true Riise out by January
causing problems same as Sissoko and Alonso injury worse than first thought Man United, Rooney on his way as girlfriend causing trouble with Sir Alex, Tevez and Ronaldho also unsettled Chelseas Joe Cole leaving after being left out John Terry and Frank Lampard wishing to go to Spain Cesc showing signs of interest in Real Madrid Rosicky and Toure being lined up by FC Barcelona Berbatov to leave Tottenham in the Summer
Great Arsenal rumours One of my cousins best freind is a coach at Arsenal's Academy. He has revealed that he has seen Robert Green and Eto'o at Arsenal's training ground. He said that they seem keen to watch the Arsenal players train and how the setup works at the Emirates. Rumours around the Emirates seem to be that Robert Green will cost around £6 million and Eto'o around £20 million. I think that these players would be a great assest to the Gunners title race. I will be looking forward to see them in Arsenal colours.
Michah Richards to Liverpool in January, a move away from ManChester City was inevitable, he would never move to Manchester UNITED as City have said they do not want to deal with thier rivals. Michah Richards made a statement that he would never consider a move to a London club as it's too far from his family and friends, so that rules out Chelsea and Arsenal. So the only other club that he would consider moveing to is Liverpool Fc. Benetez has already said he would love a defender of his class to be the successeor of Carragher. He also believes at this time in his life he would not want to move abroad yet. Expect to see Podolski to arrive in January as he's had a huge bust up with muncich manager, he also claims he adores Liverpool, and he feels he would excel in England. Benetez is an admira of Podolski, back from when he was at Cologne.
^– This is around 90 percent likely to happen– ^
The following rumors I am about to state are around 70 percent likely to happen:
Ronaldiniho to Chelsea for 70–80 M
Joe Cole returning to the Hammers for 9 M
Robert green to Arsenal for 5–7 M
Eto'o to Arsenal for 18.5 M
Ledley king to Man United
Mexes to replace Richards at City for 8 M
Swap deal involving Owen and Crouch
Viera to fioriantina for 4 M
The players Benitez will offload and buy this January and the next Summer are:
Out: Crouch £12 million, Sissoko £12 million and Riise £8 million and Pennant £8
Ins: Quaresma £20 million, D. Alves £25 million, Taylor £10, D. Villa £35 million.
Quaresma for leftwing, Alves for rightwing, Taylor for central defender and Villa for the forward position.
It will cost Liverpool only £50 million
I have heard from a reliable source, that Rangers and Man United are going to do a straight swap involing Kris boyd and Darren flether, as Ferguson wants a second choice forward to bring on to chase games.
this will go through in January and will also involve Danny simpson and fraizer campbell going on loan to Rangers until the Summer
The Hammers to sign England Forward for Club out of Europe by January. Peter Crouch
only rumour I have is Everton paid for Owain Tudur Jones's (Swansea) knee op in the Summer, they sent him to see M. owen's doc in the states. do not know if there is an offer or anything (maybe in the Summer, if he has an injury free season)
Newcastle look like they are going to make a bid for the 26 year old Russian Arshavin. £8 million is rumoured to be the figure and I think that this story has a lot of legs as Arshavin can play deep CF, forward, wing or midfield making a perfect addition to a squad that favours 4–3–3. I think that this is more likely than Riquelme link but you never can tell with Newcastle.
I heard Rafa has an extensive list of targets. He will not have wholesale changes, but he was explaining to my mate that his idea is to always keep his options open. For me though it does not work after being forced onto Pennant first time and then missing out on a raft of wingers recently. However with the Villa Eto'o Torres situation I suppose it worked out quite nicely. Anyway in the same conversation, my mate who loves his rench football (hes from Paris) asked him if we considered his favourite player, Gouffran. Rafa said he had looked at him but did not think he was worth the risk, but will keep an eye on him. He said his scouts in France all suggest that, and this will please yesterdays poster, Hatem Ben Arfa is the man for Liverpool FC and that the only hurdle would be the asking price.
100 percent true
pato is sign on loan from ac to Derby, as they have links from when eranio played for them and he is a scout for ac. he will sign a £6 milliononth loan deal.
sounsess to be Wigan manager, he will bring in barry Ferguson, Cuellar and burke from ranagers and will also re sign boumsong to partner Bramble at the back.
Arsenal will sign Modric in January and he will be used as a winger. Wenger will also be looking to sign two more players in January, a keeper and a center back. Goalkeeper being Rob Green and center back being micah Richards.
Modric £8 million
Green £5 million
Richards £12 million
Song £2 million
Eboue £5 million
To the guy who thinks you should stop posting rumours, that is what the website is for and facts are not rumours – check a dictionary
G. Ochoa's agent is reportedly in talks with Man United about a three year contract and a £7 million move. December or July – not sure when it will happen.
The Mexican keeper is currently playing for Club America in Mexico. Only 22, ranked as something like the third best in the world at the moment. Not official, only rumour – until officially confirmed by either clubs this may not be accurate info.
Juande Ramos is planning no mass exodus in the next window although if the right offers come in for the right players he will let them go. but, only if he can fill the positions that he has targeted for improvement, these are centre defense, central and left midfield. He wants to bring in a playmaker for either of these positions and the signing of a world class left midfielder will allow Malbranque and Lennon to concentrate on contesting for starting spot on the right side of midfield.
He is unsure of the long term positions of Gardner, Rocha, Tainio, Zokora, Huddlestone and Routledge with close scrutiny also being placed on new signing Kaboul.
He has also demanded a change to scouting policy and wants to bring in established players to help bring the young talent through. Ramos has already shown the clubs board and sporting director that he will demand 100 percent control of his playing staff.
Bale and Bent will be going nowhere and Berbatov will only be allowed to leave if he wants to go and Tottenham receive an offer that matches their valuation of him.
All facts. straight from Park Lane, N17.
Steve Morgan has promised to give £10 million to mick in the Summer on top of any budget he has left from this season. mick McCarthy could sign o'halloran from Aston Villa for the next two months then hopes to extend it to end of season.
I'm the one who brought the news way back in the day that Arsenal would sell Titi Henry to FC Barcelona for a shock sum of 16–18 mil. They would sign Diarra from Chelsea way before the papers announced that Arsene wanted him. I have read all these rumours about Arsenal over the past few months and had to laugh to myself. The closest rumour I have come across is the Luka Modric signing in January. This is still possible but will only happen if someone makes a move for no 7 Rosicky. Although Wenger said that he would not allow it to Rosicky to leave until the Summer, as he has his eye on a gem of a player in no other than Kaka from AC Milan. Kaka has already stated that if he decided to move to the EPL then it would only be Arsenal and Man United. Therefore Liverpool, Chelsea and Newcastle are all out of the window. We all know that Arsenal have over 70 million to spend and with additional funds in the Summer + cash from player sales, they would have more than enough to buy the player out right. We all know that Man United have already spend over 70 million this year and with Berbertov wanting a move to Man United, they will not be able to afford Kaka aswell.
When Wenger said he would be signing a super super class player, this was the one he was always on about. but at the time, he did not have all funds available to buy the player out right, therefore Holding off until next Summer (also Henry leaving made him change transfer plans).
Trust me this will happen and be a surprise to everyone.
Remember where you heard it first.
Apparently Newcastle is preparing a £12 million pound bid for Juan Roman Riquelme and an £8 million pound bid for Andrei Arshavin in the Winter Transfer Window.
Kaka to Newcastle and Claudio Husain to Man United are two of the funniest things I have seen on here. Man United is moving for Guillermo Ochoa, and if they acquire anybody else it will be Maurice Edu. But Ochoa might be the only acquisition at the break for this very strong team.
Joe Cole spotted coming out of Suites Hotel Knowsley on East Lancs Road in Liverpool (He was with a man who looked like he could be his agent). Was overheard saying he was on his way to the Liverpool Academy. My mate is a Chef in the hotel and got his autograph and a photo on his phone. Hopefully he will be signing for the Reds.
Sven to spend big in January with Afonso Alves moving to City in a £13 million deal which will see samaras return to heerenveen, Mark Bresciano also moving to Eastlands from palermo, City are also set to test Tottenham resolve with a £8 million bid for Aaron Lennon, one shock deal likely to be concluded is the return to England of Patrick Viera, players leaving City include dabo, isakkson and possibly Italian misfit rolando bianchi
Villa will move for Celtic's Aiden McGeedy in January. A fee of around £1 million would surely bag the in–form Irishman, with O' Neil a keen admirer.
Arthur Boruc will be sold in January with Arsenal leading the chase for the contRoversial Pole. Expect Strachan to bid for several big–name goalkeepers including David James and possibly Chris Cresswell.
16 year old forward Phillipe Ghoule of French non–leaguers Moissy–Cramayel is also on Strachan's radar. He is being watched by a number of Italian and English Premier League clubs including Atalanta, Birmingham and Charlton. He is tipped by many to be the next Hatem Ben Arfa.
Newcastle are chasing Adriano, but it is rumoured he does not fancy the north–east of England. Expect a move to La Liga with Valencia and Real Madrid interested in the forward.
in; M. Richards £12 million cash + Senderos and Hoyte
Modric £9 million
Ben Arfa £14 million
Rosicky £9 million Inter
