Man United will let Tevez go in the summer, after he announced he would love to play for Sir Alex's most hated, Real Madrid. Tevez will go to Madrid for the demanded 32 mil, giving Real a real headache over striking options with Tevez, Huntelaar, van Nistelrooy, Raul and Gonzalo Higuain all battling for a place in the first choice strike duo. To replace Tevez, United will look into Karim Benzema (30 mil) (most likely, as Madrid will get Tevez so will no longer want Benzema) and a more unlikely option of Sergio Kun Aguero (35–40 mil). City will not sign David Villa, as he would only leave for a champions league team (Real Madrid, Barcelona and Chelsea could all show interest). Andrei Arshavin will 100% sign for Arsenal very soon (possibly by the end of next week), as Arshavin would choose premier league over any other league, and the only other prem team showing any interest in Arshavin is Spurs, and Arshavin would obviously choose a champs league team over a relegation contender. The fee would be of 12–15 mil.

  Spanish bank Santander is currently in talks with Royal Bank of Scotland about buying Liverpool if HIcks/Gillett default on repayment in summer. Santander see Liverpool as a great brand to esatblish themselves in UK market. If it happens expect to see Liverpool spend a lot in Spanish market in Summer.

  To the guy who says he works in the city and hears that west ham need 30m by the end of january or fold!! and have agreed to be relegated at the end of the season cos they feel like it. You must mean Norwich city is where you work, West ham have to service 12.6m of loans per football calender. WHEN THE CURRENT CHAIRMAN BOUGHT OUT EGGIE MAGNUSONS 5% HE ALSO PAYED OFF 33M OF OUTSTANDING DEBT, These debts were payed by personal wealth. So in fact, west ham as a buisinss is ok for debt, its just wether the chairman does go under big time, remember what the papers don't say or tell you, he has a personal fortune 265m, his son and heir is the richest man in iceland with a 1.6bn fortune. BUT THE PAPERS ARE SELLING FROM IT. . REUTERS WORKER.

  Glasgow Rangers are set to sign Venezulan striker Giancarlo Maldonado on a loan deal.

Kris Boyd will move to join Birmingham after re–negotiations about his wages.

This is expected to happen next Thursday.
  To the chimp who said Robinho will go to the rags what a load of BS. Tevez will probably go as he as seen Alex the red nosed Alcoholic in his true colours as a bully, all be it a very successful one and will be on his toes to Real Madrid in the summer for 25–30 M.
City will sign Diego Lopez GK from Villareal for 10M and a yet to be named superstar midfielder from a Major Spanish club this transfer window . Gnegneri Yaya Tourť from Barca in the summer for 25M, Owen on a free from Newcastle providing he can stay fit and injury free over the summer (Done Deal). Samuel Eto'o is a big possibility for 09/10 as Barcelona are going to sign Villa from Valencia for next season. Richards is going nowhere but Dunne, Elano, Jo and Tal Ben Haim will leave Middle Eastlands with Spurs, Lazio, Everton and Blackburn respectively their most likely destinations.
If Hughes cannot turn the season around he will go with Josť Mourinho and Roberto Mancini his most likely replacements. Either would have a bucket load of cash for transfers.
Come on the blue revolution GuzzboyBlue.
  My auntie's husband is on the medical staff at west bromwich albion and assures me that thay will be making at least one signing next week with a shock move for kanu who is unhappy at the lack of first team football at portsmouth

he has also told me that there is one player booked in for a medical on monday but with other premiship teams intrested he did not say just incase the move broke down
  Pompey News
Edu is set to sign on loan at Pompey this coming week and will be followed by fellow Valencia team mate Manuel Fernandes in a £6million deal.
Adams will also put in fresh bids for O'Neil and Barton. It is believed however Adams has to reduce the wage bill by 25% and Richard Duffy, Lauren and Herman will be the last to leave this window. Hermann is reportedly going to Celtic in a deal worth £500,000. I also have a feeling Campbell and Kanu will be released in the summer to free up some of the cash.
  First of all there is no major signings from either old firm teams celtic maybe one more youngster which in the long run is a great idea rangers lovenkrands and another defender not tonnel or any other name you see on this site .
wgs to leave in the summer that is why the are keepin there money . levein or mowberry to take over
hail hail 4 i a r

Boyd will deff leave before the end of the month so to Ferguson Boyd i am not totaly convinced with but would rather keep him as his work rate etc has improved alot ! but has no pace and that's the main reason smith is happy to let him go ! Ferguson on the other hand is just about finished so even 2 million would be great for him team plays alot better with out him . several teams in prem intrested in him plus wee dick fancies him 2 but dosent think he can get him to move to russia
McGregor is away to bids of 6 million will be accepted , Bouggerra will only be sold if someone bids more than 5 million for him ! McCulloch is intresting alot of english teams for somewhere in the region of 1 million ! The bank will be quite happy to get 6 million and walter will get the rest of the cash to rebuild the team also Lovenkrands is back training at murray park , He is desperate to come back offerd to play for 5 grand a week as he made over 4 million out of shalke and dosent need the money ! no deal though till some more players moved out

  Carlos Tevez– to leave Man utd this January and move to Liverpool.

John Arne Riise is leaving italy and will move from Roma to english side Chelsea. to replace wayne bridge its a done deal. he will not be joining newcastle. believe me he agreed a deal with chelsea last week. from daniel – I work at chelsea and i know these rumours espially the tevez to liverpool story as chelsea asked to sign tevez but he wants to join liverpool.
  Barnsley manager Simon Davey will turn to Europe in his search for a striker. He seems determined to added youth to his front line as he targets Polish international Robert Lewandowski (according to reports in Poland). Although his price tag could prove a problem, an intial loan period with an option to buy in the summer seems to be the most likely deal to be done.

  Shock Norwich City news. A consortium led by a former player will takeover from Delia Smith within the next month. The deal will mean complete control for the consortium who will make available a sum of £25 million for transfers for the new Norwich managers Iwan Roberts and Aide Bothroyd. A bid for Leroy Lita has been accepted and the money from the sale of Lee Croft to Man City and David Marshall to Rangers will pay for it. Times are changing at Norwich, thank god for Lee and Peter
  West Brom to sign Nick Carle from Crystal Palace.
  Expect to see celtic make a 6 month loan deal for Nicky Shorey from Aston Villa, possibly made permenant in the summer.
  NORWICH NEWS. Roeder is lookin at many possible striker targets he is lookin 4 cheap buys as norwich have no money and if they did they would be reluctant to give it to man they are gradually loosing trust in. he is lookin to ched evans back on loan he is well down the order at man c and with them lookin to sign more strikers this could happen. another target is izale mcleod who is available for around 200k a bargain considerin he was worth a million a few years back. expect hoolahan to be gone. shittu and konchesky possible loan targets hereidasan maybe on a free as he is not signin for celtic for 2.5mil as one bloke said. cameron jerome also possible as he liked the area and the club when shown around before signin for birmingham.

  Former–Rangers winger Peter LÝvenkrands is expected to arrive at St. James' Park on Monday to finalise his transfer to the North–East. The Magpies are desperate to add numbers to an injury–hit squad, and LÝvenkrands may be a safe bet considering he can be acquired on a free.

LÝvenkrands has represented Denmark in 20 Internationals, and was a regular at the Ibrox before his coveted move to German giants Schalke o4. However, he has not been able to find his form with The Miners, and is now looking for a new club to ply his trade, with Newcastle in pole position to land him.

A move back to his old club Rangers is still on the cards, but Walter Smith is said not to be keen on re–signing the wingman.

Dennis Wise and his recruitment team are working to secure the Dane, while other targets are also being scouted, according to The Daily Mail.

If the transfer goes through, LÝvenkrands would be Newcastle United's first signing of 2009.

  Liverpool will do little business in this transfer window, only Pennant will leave if a suitable offer(£3–4m) is made. Milan supposedly offering contract to sign in summer. Rafa looking for English clubs interested(Stoke, Hull, Wigan,Tottenham) to make an offer. Have sign Palsson for 300k for the future. In the summer big business to take place. Rafa will be given £50m and whatever made on sales. With this in mind he will sign Glen Johnson – although he signed a new contract there is a £10m release clause, which Liverpool are willing to meet. A £30m has been set aside for Kun Aguero, although it will take considerably more to sign him. And finally Theo Walcott is on Rafa's hitlist, with a new contract yet to be signed he could in theory be bought for £400k, due to his age Liverpool would only have to pay for the cost of his training, but in reality a bid close to £15m will be made. Dossena will be sold (£4–6m)with Milan and Juve interested, Rafa happy with Insua and Aurelio. Benayoun will look to move in with interest form Man City, Villareal and Valencia – will look for around £8m. Voronin will be sold to Hertha for £2m, Degen to Bremen for £1.5m. Hobbs and Nemeth will be loaned to Wolves if promoted.
  Everton – Michael Johnson (MCFC) for 3.5m and Lescott for 17m to MCFC. Thats not a rumour that's just rubbish. Even a half fit Jonno is worth 3 times that in the current market. I heard a swap deal was offered but Jonno does not want to go to Everton and they cannot even afford Jos wages for a loan. Sure both will leave either now or summer along with Vass, Elano, Dunne, Benjani and Onuha. But not until the repalcements are signed and delivered.
  Not a rumour but to the person who said Simpson will be sold, no, he signed a new contract before he went on loan, also I know him personally and his intentions are to stay with Arsenal.
  Many on here will remember me from the past. I am the guy that correctly reported a number of moves in and out of Everton, including Johnson to Fulham and Fellaini to Everton. These were reported weeks before the papers even realised what was going on. You might say that I have inside information. Anyway, a very interesting one I've just heard is that Everton are attempting to broker a deal to sign Manuel Fernandes of Valencia. Blues fans will remember Manuel from his 2 spells at Goodison on loan. At this point, I can confirm that an offer for £7m was made for the talented midfield. The ball is now in Valencia's court.
  Owen coyle to sign steven whittaker and alan gow from rangers both for £250k
  So west ham need to raise 30million or go why did they not accept man citys bid of 20 million for parker and bellamy.the truth is west ham are not as badly off as the papers are saying.they can afford to keep the players they want to keep as the owner has publicly stated,i suspect parker will be sold for a huge profit as zola will feel he can cover that posistion.bellamy and upson will stay put at least untill the end of the season by which time new owners will be in place.the sheffield utd case will go in west hams favour as the FA are sick to death of it and cas will throw it out of court.zola will bring all west ham young talent through next season and the hammers will go from strength to strength.DONT LISTEN TO ALL THE DOOM AND GLOOM THE PICTURE REALLY ISNT THAT BAD.

I very rarely write here unless there is genuine news unlike the vast majority of people who sadly write rubbish / wishful thinking.

It is well documented that Arsenal need to strengthen and Mr Wenger has stated he is only looking for "special talent". The Arsenal are rapidly improving unlike the doom merchants as we have been unbeated in the last 7 games, with 4 wins and 3 draws. These are FACTS, typical of my news.

THE BIG NEWS which is an exclusive as no one as far as I know has mentioned this in any paper or website. . .

ARSHAVIN is a target, but this is NOT the main target, rather a second choice / back up for the MAIN target. . .who is a "special talent", a current international player, FRENCH (so wenger is keen and has been for over 4 years) scores lots of goals and can play on the wings. . .

ARSENAL ARE closing in for FRANK RIBERY from Bayern Munich for £15 million+. This is AN EXCLUSIVE. Ribery is keen to come, but Bayern are not very keen as yet to sell. Ribery has two and half years left on his contract and has not/will not resign again, hence this possibility.

IF RIBERY comes, this would be the BEST SIGNING of the month. CLASS is rare, but this could happen!!!

If not Ribery, then Arshavin with one more midfielder.

REMEMBER me when this happens.

SAB ( a true gooner with FACTS not rubbish)
  Just heard from my Scottish contact in Birmingham (his name is James ;–))that Aiden McGeady is subject of £3m bid from Birmingham City. The Glasgow born winger is wanted by Alex Mcleish to help in his push for promotion to the premier league.
  I feel Man U will let Tevez go. Letting Tevez go to Man City and us taking Robinho will be fantastic for us. Summer, well, Benzima and Aguaro (spelling!) in. What do ya'll think?
