Benitez will not sell Kuyt and will pursue a deal for PSV's Ibrahim Affalay with the Dutch team set to accept £8 million for the midfielder. Affalay will join Gareth Barry, Dossena and Degen as new arrivals at Anfield while Benni McCarthy is also a potential target.

= v1=

  Rangers Will Sign:

Jean Calve–2 million

Jeremy Berthod–2 million

Ivan Klasnic–FREE

Kenny Miller–1.6 million

Andrius Velicka–1.2 million

Palladino–4.5 million

Adam Johnson– Cousin straight swap.

Rino Gattuso– £5 million maybe.

Total– 16.3 million with Gattuso

11.3 mill

But possible SDM will buy out remainder of Rino's contract at AC Milan.

  Boro Exclusive.

Boro in talks with Tottenham about signing Aaron Lennon. Apparently we are prepared to offer £5 million, but Tottenham want £6 million. Arda Turan has been scouted by Middlesbrough and he may be the next choice if the Lennon deal does not go through. Tottenham have also offered Robinson to Middlesbrough for £4 million, but Southgate is looking at other options first. Middlesbrough also in talks with Heerenveen about the availability of Michael Bradley, and Paris St. Germain about Didier Dagard. Midfielders are Boro's main priority, but if Southgate can secure some signings, then he will look into bringing in a left–back and a goalkeeper.

  Micheal Ballack to go to Rangers, I do not know the fee but David Murray will pay him out his own pocket at 50,000 per week.

  Chelsea Ins:




Van Der Vaart



Also to the deluded Liverpool fan that beleives Podolski will go to them for £7 million stop dreaming. You saw him get those two goals on TV and now think that he will sign. He loves life in Germany and he is at the top club that is winning everything and is in the Champions league. He is actually getting trophies at Bayern. Also on this note if Liverpool do not win anything these season say good bye to Torres. Also Podolski has been offered many times to leave but he will not. Well known fact.

  While going on a football trip to the USA I met the nigerian football team at Frankfurt coming back from their friendly against Austria. I spoke with Yak, Victor and Yobo. I asked all three if they were staying with the mighty blues, Yak and Yobo seemed very positive about playing for Everton next season but Victor did not seem very sure. He said He would been having injury problems which had hindered his season, he seemed a bit frustrated. I just hope he stays with us as him and Vaughan are great prospects for the future and could form a great partnership. Exciting time for the Blues.

My brother is an FA rep who deals with the north west registration comittee – I cannot disclose anymore. Some are guaranteed some have been mentioned within camps, figures are not accurate.

  Leeds United Are To Sign Out Of Contract Jay Jay Okocha From Hull City For a Free As His Contract As Expires And Is Availble

  Liverpool ins:





Diego milto

also there will be a back up keeper bought








and by the way all thoughs people saying Arsenal and Bolton and teams like that are after sportins miguel veloso is a load of rubbish United have a thing with sportin which alows them first look at any talent and why would they let someone like that go to another good English team

  My Dad is the groundman at Barnsley FC and he said that he has seen both Nicky Maynard and David Prutton there having a look round. Maybe two new sigings for the reds?

  Aleksandr Hleb has agreed terms with the Blaugrana outsh.t (outfit) for £16 million pounds with add ons, that could rise the figure to 18, £5 million. However, Wenger will not get cash or yaya Toure or Dos Santos (who's set to join Rottenham NotTottenham), but has spoken to and will revive the career of Ronaldinho. He is keen to work under Arsene and admires his stlye of play. He has been given strict terms in his personal terms in his contract; such as a curfew, which will circumvent the party life that ruined him.

His salary will start at 95 000/week.

P. Trochowski has been used as a smoke screen for Diego Ribas the Cunha, who will be signed for £15 million pounds. Quaresma is now on Wenger's wanted list as he is on the cheap + Porto has been relegated from Champions league.

  Liverpool will be signing:

Matias Fernandez (6 million) versatile: L/R/AM SS ST

Ibrahim Afellay (8 million) winger to replace Pennant

Gareth Barry (15 million) versatile: DM and LM

Nicklas Bendtner (7 million) as a back up to Torres

Andrea Dossena (7 million) replacement for Riise

+ goalkeeper as a back up to Reina


Jermaine Pennant (6 million)

John Arne Riise (5 million)

Steve Finnan (2 million)

Xabi Alonso (15.5 million)

Peter Crouch (10 million)

Andrey Voronin (1 million)

Scott Carson (6 millioni1l)

Charles Itjande (1 million)

Danny Guthrie (1.5 million)

  ^^^ e. v. e. r. t. o. n ^^^

Everton are going to sign a few players this Summer. they will not buy a lot because David Moyes never does. Aaron Ramsey will chosing us over United and Asrenal I have heard becuse he likes the atmosphere at Everton and he ill get good pay. we will also be looking at a right back, rumours of Luke Young and Glen johnson. the main buys will be in the midfield as he looks at European Talent: –



He will probably replace Lee Carsley with a denfinsive midfeilder like Tom Huddlestone. He will only but a forward if Andy Johnson depatures and he will probably replace him with some one from the euros.

true respectable news efc the religion

  Leeds United are said to be mulling over a swoop for Peterborough United's George Boyd, Boyd attracted interest from Leeds while at Stevenage and also at the start of last season but the transfer ban restricted Leeds making a solid bid.

  Jim Jeffries will be announced as the new Hearts manager at some point this week.

  From a true blue

Arteta will stay as he wants to break into the Spain squad at Everton, kallstrom will not sign as Champions League football is the key which Everton cannot provide, the Michael bradley deal is dragging on abit and Moyes is thinking of changing is targets

with the ramsey deal all but completed as rams wants first team football which United cannot provide, Johnson will leave as Everton have the yak, big vic and Vaughan and looking for afourth, Aj then to the Hammers for £10 million. Other news. Huntelaar to United for £16 million, Adebayor to AC for £23 million, Crouch is not going to Pompey as Harry does not want to pay £15 million. only 10, Drogba and shevvas to Ac for combined 40 million with Kaka also staying, all these people saying top stars want to go only to Newcastle must be

mad as Newcastle is a place that ruins careers E. g allardyce, owen, Duff, Luque etc. + their not exactly European challengers. unlike the Toffees.


  I was coming out of the national musiem when I saw Andy Cole shaking hands with Alan irvine.

dwight yorke and David Weir favorites to sign for preson north end.

  To the person who claimed Rafa will become Spain's manager after Aragones – I think Vicente del Bosque might have something to say about that as he has already been confirmed as Aragones' replacement.

Think again.

  BECKHAM TO RANGERS? what a joke. he rakes in nearly half a million dollars per week, what is Murray going to do? have the under 12's play for Rangers with Beckham on the right because the only way to afford Beckham is to SELL everybody. Now serious rumours from the CHAMPIONS.

Celtic have made a bid for Park Ji–Sung for £3.5 million. Doubt that Fergie will sell him for that, but it's worth a try.

Naylor to Portsmouth £2 million

Ian Harte to Celtic, free transfer – this comes up every year, same as the usual Darren Huckerby rumour

Stelios – free transfer, too old. do not know what Strachan sees in him

Ross McCormack – No need for him, he can go to England if he wants

Prince bauben – 500 k. not bad player, but would rather have gomis from the arabs

Keep you updated if anymore spring up.

3 in a row 7 to go

  If Ronaldo leaves Man United then Patrice Evra would also want to leave as he has been attracting interest from Marsailles and Bayern Munich.

Fergie will step down as manager after the 09/10 season to be replaced by Queiros. Queiros has been promised this to stop him leaving to coach an unnamed Spanish side.

  Stoke City will sign Marlon Harewood 4.7 million and will sign Nugent for £5 million along with a few Russian internationals. I have heard that we are intersted in Gardener on loan. this is a reliable source


  To the person who said 'Villas big signin of the Summer will be gera on a free as Sidwell will go to Manchester City, ' no. Just no.

1) Gera is off to Fulham already.

2) The Sidwell deal is just waiting for Chelsea to instate a manager.

3) both Maloney and Harewood have already said they are not going.

4) MON is absolutely categorically not interested in Voronin and if, IF, Barry goes it'll be for cash only.

5) Young leaving? You have got to be joking. Villa are not a selling club and there is no way Young would go for as little as £12 million.

Unfortunately this all means that the link to Cissť is probably wrong too. Ah well.

– hvs

  Ronaldhinio will snub a move to Manchester City because Liverpool have tabled a bid believed to be in the region of £16 million pounds, the lure of playing Champions League football will be enough to snatch the former World Player of the Year from the jaws of Thaskin, Rafa believes that the Brazilian playmaker will be able to solve Liverpool's problems out wide, enabling him to put Ryan Babel up front with Fernando Torres

Rafas Red Men

  Afc Bulletin ) ) ) ) )

Expect Cardiff player Ramsey 2 move to Afc. Possable player swap deal with Arsenal player Hleb moving 2 REAL MADRID and REAL MADRID player Sneijder moving to Afc.

  Roy Keane storming out of SOL? Thought he was in New Zealand with the All Blacks for his UEFA licence?

  Just got a taxi in north London and the cabbie was telling me he drove Darren Flecther to meet Tottenham officals. Do not know how true it is but he seemed honest enough

  Liverpool to sign Villa. Concrete

  2 the guy who said this:

Liverpool will sign Nasri for £12.5 million and risse. Crouch will leave for £12.5 million to cover the prices of Nasri. Alonso will leave for £7 million + Robinho who will not be happy when Ronaldo comes. then Liverpool will sign dossenia with the £7 million that we got fron Alonso deal. barry will come to Anfield for £7 million + Carson we will then sign Ribery for £30 million. Finnan £4 million vorraninn £2 million le latlic 3 millio benuyoun £7 million Pennant £10 million will be sold. to make money for the Ribery barry deals. with £19 million in kitty left from what hicks and gillett gave to Rafa

a forward will be bought for 20 mill

with Rafa looking at these

1. agureo tops Rafa list with

2. Ronaldinho in second

3. Villa third

4. pato

5. berba

the con–con in the know.

What a load of complete rubbish, typical biast Liverpool fan, let me correct U.

Just for the record I am a United fan, and the following is true that I asure u:

Nasri will sign for Arsenal, done deal £15 million

Alonso will go to Juve £14 million

Dossena will sign for Liverpool, fee I do not know

Barry will also sign for red side of Mersyside cash + Carson

Ribery will not sign for Liverpool lol very funny though, he will be Uniteds replacement for Ronaldo if Robinho does not come as part of that deal, otherwise he will stay at munich possibly go Chelsea

Ronaldinho is a maybe, as is Villa but the 2 lads from the Spanish team that got relagated I understand are being heavilly looked at by Rafa.

David Villa to be the star of the euro,

Arsenal to win the title next year: (

  To the person who said Cardiff Wonder Kid Ramsey is signing for Everton, he's already agreed terms with Arsenal and he will become a great player under Wenger. Nasri is a 50–50 now because of Liverpool's Late Bid after Rafa Remembered He Has That 'first Option. ' But if Nasri does not want a move to Liverpool then It do not Meen a ThInG. Other Possible Signings: David Villa (17 million), Obafemi Martins (9 million), Kompany (14 million) and Mountinho ( £14 million). I can Guarentee That Aaron Ramsey and David Villa are 85 percent Likely to Sign.

  Arsenal to sign ramsey £5 million Nasri £13 million yaya Toure £7 million and possibly David Villa if a bidding war doensnt exceed the £20 million mark, players leaving will be Flamini and Lehman free and Hleb £16 million Hoyte £4 million.

total net spend £25 million not unlike Arsenal

  I have it on good authority via Paul Peschisolido (Karren Brady's Husband) the following Ins and Outs at Birmingham City.

Richard Kingson could return, he was released close season but with Maik Taylor looking to move to Liverpool, he will come in and contest with Colin Doyle for the number one jersey.

Marc Edworthy of Derby has already signed, McCleish tried to sign him at Rangers. Likely to be back up but has extensive experience in Championship.

McCleish is keen for a dominating Centre half and has identified Titus Bramble to fit the bill. Bruce is keen to offload.

Other players such Patrick Berger and Shola Ameobi are in discussions.

  Celtic will not make a move this Summer for frei insted WGS will look closer to home. Keep watching.

  Villa to make triple bid for Bent, Huddlestone and Chimbonda for £16 million. Also Guzan and Sidwell are done deals.

  I am covering the press release in austria n switzerland. last weekend I saw Aaron ramsey with Arsene, he is expected to sign as you might have found out today. yesterday I saw Arsene talking to joan laporta (FC Barcelona president) expect a deal for yaya Toure to be finalised within weeks. also Arsene has asked to attend the russia game, he has his eyes set on arshavin, nothing is certain yet. he also seems to be answering a lot of German journalist, he is interested in one of their midfielders, again nothing certain. he is attending the Spain game, journalists are saying he is interested in a defender (albiol), midfielder (de la red) and forward (villa) obviously not all are expected to sign.

  The Ronaldo saga is getting boring now, so could all the Man United fans stop suggesting they will get £100 million for him, you would be lucky to get half of that for him.

Anyway, Arsenal will be buying a few players during the closed season transfer window. Here is what is likely to happen.


Flamini (FREE) – Done Deal

Lehmann (FREE) – Done Deal

Hleb (£6 million + Yaya Toure) – The Hleb transfer is being held up by FC Barcelona as Arsene Wenger is asking for Yaya Toure in return. Expect Arsene Wenger to get his man so that FC Barcelona do not lose out on Hleb.

Eboue (£6 million) OR Hoyte (£3 million) – One of these two will go, depending on the offers. The other will stay and act as the covering RB to Sagna.

Adebayor (£24 million) – AC Milan will look to snap up Adebayor from Arsenal as a younger (and in business terms, a better investment) version of Drogba to play up top with Pato.


Vela and Merida (Loan Return)

Yaya Toure (FREE/Swap) – Yaya will replace Flamini in the heart of Midfield with Cesc, and will offer Arsenal pace and power in that area like Vieira did before.

David Villa (£17 million) – Villa will be the main forward up top and will provide a bucket load of goals. Being good friends with Cesc will keep him happy at the Club and dismiss any moves away.

Nasri (£13 million) – Nasri is DEFINATELY going to be signing for Afc, but he has decided to put it off until after the Euros to concentrate on his football.

Cristian Zapata (£11 million) – Wenger will get the big Columbian defender near the end of the transfer window.

Ben Arfa (£11 million) – Ben Arfa will come in and offer Wenger width on the left hand side.

Akinfeev (£12 million) OR Frey (£9 million) – New #1.

Other youngsters will be baught.

Let the good times at the Emirates Roll.


  Eidur Gudjohnsen, Darren Bent, Nicky Shorey, Jimmy Bullard, Steven Taylor all to come to the Hammers, with Nigel Quashie becoming Assistant Manager. ;)

  Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman has offered Nigerian International forward Jay Jay Okocha a one year contract to become a Player–Coach and will be the highest paid person at the club.

Burnley have turned down a £100,000 bid from Leeds United for goalkeeper Gabor Kiraly, but the Elland Road club could rebuff their offer for the transfer listed Hungarian stopper.

  Celtic will sign alexander frei (dortmond), Joey Barton when he's finished picking up the soap (Newcastle), Nicolae dica (bucharest). Celtic may well go for ivan klasnic as well.

3 in a row seven more to go

  At last Liverpool have got the players they want Degan, Dossena, Nasri, silva, villa, barry and the surprise two Arsenal forwards Bentdner and Van Persie the cosrt is offset by Alonso, Riise, Finnan, itandje, hobbs, vorinin Crouch and a surprise big exit stay tuned for who
