Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.
All these Manc reds are idiots . The reason you got no-one else in the transfer window is not because you didn't have any money or were too busy trying to tie up "World class" Hargreaves , it's because nobody wanted to join you . The reason for this is they don't want to sign for Slur Alex now when a new manager will be in place next season . Rumour has it that the Glazers are looking at getting in a more "modern" type business-like manager , and a dutchman and a couple of Italians are heading their list . .
Also according to a friend of mine in the Madrid press , Torres has apparently turned down the chance of a move to Chelski in the January window , in the hope that Rafa Benitez and the red scousers come knocking next summer . He also considered going to Old Trafford , but didn't think he would fit in as well as at Anfield , although he hasn't ruled out this move if
Liverpool can't afford him .Hi, this is the writer for German football magazine kicker again. Now I don't know anyone on any teams board, nor do I play for anyone's youth teams, but I did predict the Reyes-Baptista loan swap back in early July. As I said, there are options on both players to buy for their new clubs, however it is more likely that lower prices would have to be negotiated if only one player moves or the players will simply transfer permanently. Real Madrid will buy an option on Kaka over the winter and Ronaldo will move to Manchester United. With Raul a Madrid legend and Van Nistelrooy and Robinho both more ambitious and physically fit, Ronaldo will lose his place in the side. Remember, Reyes will likely take over the role Robinho filled last year, on the left wing. Man U will get the player for 10 million pounds. Real will look for an attacking center midfielder, but only if he is not cup-tied, leaving very few options. Cassano will probably go on loan to Juve or to Milan. Real want him to establish himself somewhere else so that they can sell for a windfall profit. Chelsea will not look to sign anyone of note, perhaps Nuri Sahin, who would, however, remain in Dortmund on loan. Look for Gago to move to Europe with Madrid and Barca the front-runners. Madrid looks more likely for their money and the fact that Barca have several attacking midfielders already. Also, Real might look into signing Quaresma from Porto.Well guys i tried to post a rumor a few days before the deadline,gallas to the gunners,if not illiusu stays also baptista in.mido back to spurs.never got posted?? anyway my dad works for a big sportspaper and has lots of contacts .he gave me this info plus heres transfers to be for you that nearly happened. close,close. so he says. del piero to bolton(pay scale problem). .joe cole to the gunners.??. sweinsteiger to newcastle(bid turned down). and believe it or not. .lee trundle to everton !may be still on.West Brom will
take advantage of the transfer window by signing Lee Hendrie and Gary Breen on loanLiverpool almost signed James Milner in the summer transfer window. He was actually Rafa Benitez's third choice winger after Alves and Pennant. Benitez wantes Joaquin or Simao but was priced out of moves.
=v1=David Beckham and Sol Campbell have been told that they are unlikely to play for England ever again, whilst despite impressive performances for Portsmouth, David James has also been told that it will be hard for him to ressurect an England career. McClaren is looking at 10 new faces to bring into the England set up and expect 3 or 4 of them to come in to contention soon. The likes of Joey Barton, Kevin Nolan, Scott Parker, Jermaine Pennant, Nigel Reo-Coker, Phil Jagielka, Anton Ferdinand, Curtis Davies and Stephen Warnock could all be subject to call up soon.
=v1=To the liverpool fan abusing the United fan, how is he an idiot by saying Man U have more money that Liverpool and then you go on to say how you have had more success. He didnt say Man U have won more trophies surely? That probably makes you an idiot - Anyway United will not go for Hargreaves in January he will be cup tied from the CL and therefore no value to them. Likewise Alves will stay till next summer and then move with his likely destination Liverpool or possibly Madrid. Having watched the super cup i thought he was real quality and will strengthen the mighty reds! Lets do them blue noses tomorrowGarry O'Connor will sign for Norwich on loan with a view to a permanent transfer in January.Expect Sheringham at the Lane (and that's Bramall not White Hart) in the new year. until the end of the season with a one year extension option.Rangers News (EXCLUSIVE)
