Ins – Ben Arfa on 1 condition only they want Adebayor in swap deal but Arsenal are only willing to swap Bendtner and pay £10 million.

Phillipe Mexes is main defensive target.

Also Vela is back do not forget.

Outs –

  Arsenal could make the super signings of the Summer. Ben arfa is looking certain to sign a deal. As Arsenal have not enough squad depth Wenger will sign Mexes, Richards, ben arfa, Thierry Henry will be brought back to Arsenal.

This will not just gove the squad more depth, this will provide more power into the team.

Moving out will be Lehmann Eboue Gilberto Bendtner.

  Top premierleague transfers

Arsenal–ben arfa


brum–zarate (permanent)

blackurn–Lennon (swap)


Chelsea–Van Der Vaart

Derby–Kaka (only joking) hibbert








Portsmouth–Defoe (permanent)



Tottenham–Bentley (swap)



  This is completely true; Arsene Wenger could leave Arsenal at the end of the season. He feels he has taken the team as far as he can, and so do the board. He will take a step away from football as the stress is getting to him too much. The decision will be announced early next week, or at the end of the season depending on the result against United on Sunday.

  FC Barcelona could have a huge clear out at the end of the season. Leaving will be:

Ronaldinho (14 million) Italy

Thierry Henry (10 million) Italy

Rafael Marquez (6 million)

Deco (10 million)

Coming in will be:

Diego (14 million)

William Gallas (8 million)

Karim Benzema (25 million)

  Man United Rumours:

one of Hernanes, Thiago Neves, Renato Augusto or Miguel Veloso will sign next season as Sir Alex believes one of these guys would be the perfect partnership with Anderson in the near future.

They will also buy young Giovani Dos Santos from FC Barcelona for £21 million.

United will also buy Philipp Lahm for £11 million and play him right back.

And United will buy one foward their two main targets are Benzema and Bojan and they will sign one of those two.

Liverpool Rumours:

David Bentley– £15 million

Rafinha– £8 million

Henry– £16 million

Thanks for Reading


  Liverpool signings:

Xavi Hernandez + Giovani Dos Santos (35 million)

Gabriel Heinze (swap)

Rafinha (8 million)


Leaving will be:

John Arne Riise + Jermaine Pennant (12 million)

Scott Carson (6 million)

Andrey Voronin (free)

Harry Kewell (free)

Xabi Alonso (10 million + Heinze)


  Why do people keep linking Gudjohnsen with a move to Liverpool? anybody who knows anything about football will know that this player is despised within Anfield. The players and staff have never forgiven him for getting Alsono booked and suspended for the second leg of the Champions league Semi Final a few years back.

I Heard an interesting rumour this morning, Liverpool are going to try and tempt David Beckham back to England, whether this will be successful I do not know, although if he does show any interest in returning then we can all agree that Arsenal will also register their interest.

Also the Mancs are to sign Benzema this Summer but are happy for him to remain at Lyon for another year, they are looking to bring the Angolan on next season and then have benzema join their ranks ready for the 09/10 season.

  To the guy who think Liverpool will sell Guthrie to Bolton for £3 million think again, you may get him on loan for another year but Rafa will not sell this kid, all Liverpool fans can see this guy will be a good player, he plays a bit like Gerrard when he first broke into the team in 1999.

Also think I might be wrong about Bentley going to Liverpool, there are lot of strong rumours now linking him to Tottenham. And he was a Tottenham fan. Still we will defo sign Lennon.

  Newcastle will only be looking for 4 to five players for next season. Them players being.

Diego – 14 mill

arshavin – 8 mill

bridge or Riise – 5 mill

bafetimbi gomis – 10 mill

Metzelder – 8 mill


smith – 5 mill

rozehnal – 3 mill

n'zogbia – 9 mill

Carr – £2 million

rumours of signing Kalouda is not true since the player has already agreed a contract with cska moscow.

  Newcastle after £5 million rated morrocan winger Mbarek Boussoufa.

  Man United


Karim Benzema 25–30 million – NO. 1 Target

Miguel Veloso £15 million

Toulalan – £15 million – Only if Hargreaves is sold?


Evans £5 million – Sunderland

Fletcher £8 million – Sunderland/Newcastle/Everton

O'Shea £6 million – Everton/Sunderland/Boro'


Fabio and Rafeal – Sporting

  Expect Bolton to go for Leroy Lita and Jermaine Beckford in the Summer with Rasiak to go back to Southampton.

Liverpool are favourites to sign Bentley but if they fail to get his signature expect a bid for Joaquin, Ashley Young or Aaron Lennon.

Man United are sure to sign Klaas Jan Hunterlaar or Karim Benzema with Louis Saha sure to go back to France.

Arsenal are looking to bid for Tim Cahill in the Summer but I am sure David Moyes will not let him go.

Thanks for Reading. = ) S10

  MK Dons captain Keith Andrews is reeling from his international rejection – and that could be bad news for his club.

Andrews has been in tremendous form this season and was tipped for his first Republic of Ireland cap in May. However, he has failed to even make Giovanni Trappatoni's initial 40 man squad.

Now he may look to move to a higher division to boost his international chances, and with clubs from the Championship and above sure to be interested, Paul Ince may have to work hard to keep his captain.

  This is not a rumour but fact. In there recent fanzine Barce admitted that they have been talking to an English club about a possible sale of one of there players. For me it has to be one of three, Henry, Ronnie or Dos Santos. The two big stars are unhappy and little Gio is bit of rebel and likes a tipple out on the town. If Henry goes he will I am sure end up in Italy I would expect Milan if they do not get Schevenko. Ronnie to City? maybe but I would expect more than likely for it to be Liverpool. as Gio I would say again maybe Italy or even Portugal as Porto look set to lose Queresma. For any other big signings I would say Lahm to United, Rafinha to Liverpool, Finnan to Blackburn and for some reason people dismiss this but Aguero to Arsenal the reason I think this will happen, Cesc Fabergas. He will give Wenger an ultimatum he either aquires better players or he's off and Arsene has been looking at him for a few years now so I would not be surprised to see him go. Not such a big transfer but expect to see Henri Camera go to Leicester the only reson I think this is is that Holloway tried to get him at Plymouth and Leicester have no forwards worth 20+ goals. Thanks for Reading, LawsforEngland

  NEWS FROM THE LANE, I am sorry posted an article (yesterday) regarding a rumour myself and someone else posted a few weeks back, then said that is 5 out 6 rumours right so far, in the post I mentioned the sale of Ronaldinho and his destination to Liverpool I actually should have written Henry, sorry

  NUfc Transfers

Definite Ins:

Dawson £6 million Tottenham

Riise 5 Million Liverpool

Kompany £8 million HSV

Huntelaar £12 million Ajax

Possible INs

Henry £11 million Barcelona

Diego £15 million Werder Bremen/Deco 10 Million Barcelona


Rozenhal 2.5 Million Italian side

Enrique Loan four months Championship

Ameobi Loan End of Season Stoke

Troisi Loan End of Season Queens Park Rangers

  Rangers will persue Gomis, but will only get him if they move quickly before Premier League clubs go for him. The cheaper option would be Bendtner on loan or a £7 million move for Pavlyuchenko
