  I am an independent sports correspondent for the US news services based out of mainland Europe. It is interesting to see the number of supporters second guessing what their club is planning. The suggestion that "another milan player who will surely be offloaded will be sheva" makes no sense at all as he is on loan from Chelsea and Genoa have already expressed a keen interest in taking the player on a loan basis. Clubs in Italy, Germany and Spain are keen to do their shopping in the UK this summer due to the weakness of sterling against the euro. So some rumours that are sourced from discussions following press briefings, discussions with agents (who are looking to boost the value of their charges and discussions with other journalists:

(1) Hibernian goal keeper Yves Ma Kalambay is attracting interest from Anderlecht in Belgium.
(2) The Bayern Munich board is resigned to losing Franck Ribery during the summer – with his likely destination being Barcelona. It is most probable that they will join Chelsea and Manchester United in courting Yuri Zhirkov who will be leaving CSKA.
(3) Schalke 04 have declared an interest in Eider Gudjohnsen, but Gudjohnsen’s preferred destination is England. There is no secret to the fact that he would be keen to join Gianfranco Zolo at West Ham United. This suits the needs of both parties and the likely new owners of the club (once due diligence is complete). Schalke are also likely to make a formal approach for Tom Huddleston of Spurs.
(4) The general feeling is that the Ronaldo to Real Madrid saga will not be resolved until the elections are completed next month. At present, the discussions surround what is going to happen in terms of a head coach with it seemingly being a straight race between Rafa Benitez of Liverpool and Carlo Ancelotti of Milan. Ancelotti seems to be much happier with the situation at Milan than he was at the turn of the year and Real are most unlikely to want to commit the level of control over transfers to Benitez as he has requested through his business manager. So look for this to drag on for a couple more months before being settled.
(5) Deco will be leaving Chelsea with Inter his preferred destination but Porto his likely destination. It seems that with the African Cup of Nations being played in early 2010, Chelsea will listen to offers for Salomon Kalou and possibly John Obi. Obi would demand a significant fee but his style of play is well suited to clubs in Italy and Spain. Although Genoa have shown an interest in Andriy Shevchenko, Chelsea will either look to sell the player or possibly cancel or pay up his contract. Expect a couple of Turkish clubs to enquire after him. Brazilian Mineiro will be released and will make a return to Germany.
(6) Inter will look for an agreement over Jermaine Jenas – but well are aware that English players do not travel well and tend to struggle to learn languages.

  Villa have done a deal with Man City for Johnson who will be coming with Sturridge. Villa also wanted Richards but he is being used a part of a deal with another club (poss Arsenal)

These are only rumours (apart from the )
  Ricardo Fuller just seen leaving Cardiff City's training ground in the vale of Glamorgan. Joe Ledley going the other way.
  This is a rumour site not a wish list site
noone can second guess any off the top managers but after watching the games this weekend and reading the papers and of course this site, i am starting to think maybe someone some where has there finger on the pulse. take man u man city game tevez seemed a little annoyed every time ronaldo got into a good position and shoot(which is natural) but where was he after tevez scored. the notw said he was off to another club and a rival and they don't get bigger than lfc so this is where maybe some previous rumours catch fire.
also ronaldos petulance after his substitution should worry all man u fans (he is off)
i also have a strange feeling that this will be fergies last year

  Defeats By Valencia and Barcelona will mean
Real Madrid if F. Perez Takes charge will bring major changes in the next window. Firstly Ramos will be given a season to prove his worth. On reconmendation from Iker and raul who have taken to his management and progressed well. However the an overhaul is needed and a Spanish influx of spanish players is more than likely as F.Perez is a close friend of S.Blatter and realises its a matter of time before 6+5 comes into force. (The premierships dominence is making 6+5 a when rather than if) Therefore Real will try to assemble a strong spanish base and add over time galacticos. Albiol,Marchena,aldebeda,Silva and Villa will sign for 80m. To offset this the Duch contigent will be sold rasing 70m F. Perez has already express his deire to get rid of the duch under achivers (all six). M.Diarra,Saviola,heinze, will be offered to Bayern Munich for Lahm and Ribery as well as 20m. Bids for Negredo,Santi Cazorla, Xabi Alonso and possibly Marcos Senna (If Gago is sold)will coats an extra 40m. I don't have any insider knowledge like some claim to just a good knowledge of spainsh football and a keen intrest in events at the Real many of these rumers are comon knowledge or views expressed by Perez himself (getting rid of the dutch players).
  Pompey have accepted that their 3 most sellable assets must all depart in order to build up a squad that can keep them up next season. Out will go:

Glen Johnson – Liverpool – £10–12mil (Done Deal)
Peter Crouch – Blackburn – £7–9mil (Santa Cruz replacement)
Niko Kranjcar – Bayern Munich – £10–14mil (Ribery replacement)

Hart will not be given all of this cash to use due to Pompey's financial position. But he will sign the following:

Chris Brunt – WBA – £5mil (Wants Prem football)
Jonathon Greening – WBA – £3mil (Wants Prem football)
Barry Fergurson – Rangers – £1.5mil (Rangers want rid)
Jermaine Beckford – Leeds – £3mil (Ready to prove himself at the top)
Paulo Ferreria – Chelsea – £1mil (Chelsea want rid – wants to prove himself in Prem)
Joey Barton – Newcastle – £2mil (Newcastle want rid – Last Chance Saloon)

The reminder of his work will require loan signings:
Bendtner – Loan from Arsenal
Benjani – Loan from Man City, with view to permenant signing
  Cardiffcity 100%
i am family to member of city coaching staff and been told that cardiff are signing tommy smith from watford,
steve smith from rangers on a free.
mark hudson.
these are def signing.
other players we are trying to sign but got competition are.
ched evans,joe hart,andy dorman,and one big signing to excite fans but couldnt be told but deal is 80% done.
out are ledley,macormack,johnson,capaldi,purse,parry,whittingam,
  Tosic has been signed as Giggs' replacement, Ferguson has reiterated that there will not be significant changes to the squad this close season. Neville is considering retirement, he has failed to rediscover both form and fitness after injury and is currently taking his coaching badges. he will likely move, as Solskjaer did, into the youth set up. scholes is the only other player needing to be replaced. United have been scouting Pjanic and Benzema of Lyon, Hamsik of Napoli and Kuzmanovic of Fiorentina. a bid is likely to be lodged for one of the three midfield players, Benzema being reluctant to move to United. Pjanic is favoured, as Napoli are seeking £20m for Hamsik and Kuzmanovic is too similar in style to Carrick. Lajic will drafted into the first team squad if he shines in pre–season, in much the same way as Rafael and fabio have.
an experienced and attacking right back will be bought, to balance the attacking threat posed by Evra. Tevez will leave and Palacio is being tracked along with Radamel Falcao.
  To the newcaslte fan who said owen won't be going to wolves. in fact there is a better chance because he wants to move back where he was as a child which is near shifnal which is next to wolverhampton

To all the gers fans who recon Boyd is going in the summer. . Well he isnt, he will be staying, and it will be Novo and Velicka going out the door, also, to all those people saying Alan Hutton will be back in the summer as Spurs owe Ragers 4 Million . . . . Wrong. . they are paying in instalments and therfore don't owe the club nout as long as the continue to make their quaterly paymnets.

As for the the backroom goings on with buy outs etc. etc. . . again everyone is wrong, SDM has only ever had one offer which and publicly stated last year. ."buyer wasnt intersted in the club", but yes Walter Smith is Going up Stairs and Graeme Sounes is to be the Manager with McCoist under him (literaly knowing Sounes)

Thats all i have at the moment, but my little mole has his ear to the walls/floors and watching the fax machines

  Man U very happy with progress Craig Cathcart made at Plymouth last season, Considering loaning them three players next season. Cathcart to go back along with Darren Gibson and Frazier Cambell. Not happy that cambells season has been wasted and consider he needs a season in the championship to regain his standing.
  A real Arsenal rumour which shouldn't shock.
My wifes friend recently married a guy working at the Emirates Marketing Dept. who told me that Wenger has agreed to buy experience but yet again feels the need to prove that he can balance the books.He tells me the most likely happenings are:

(1) Wenger will sell Gallas, Traore and Sonderoos to buy a tall commanding Center Back – Metzelder Mentioned
(2) Wenger will sell Ade while he still has some value
(3) Third most obvious which nobody ever mentioned before – Wenger will buy an experienced Defensive Midfielder who can play Center Back – Cana & Barry Mentioned. The reason for this is that Martin Keown has convinced Wenger that such a player can swap position with Kolo from game to game depending on the opposition
(4) Wenger will pick up a cover player who can play across the back four – no names mentioned.

The squad will look like this:
G.KEEPERS – Remain as they are
L.BACK – Clichy & Gibbs
R.BACK – Sagna & Eboue
COVERING FULL BACK – New player to be named
C.BACK – Metzelder/Toure/Cana/Djouru/Nortveit/Song
CENTER MIDFIELD – Cana/Toure/Fabregas/Diaby/Song/ Denison/Ramsey
WIDE PLAYERS – Walcott/Rosicky/Nasri/Arshavin/ Wilshire/Merida
FORWARDS – Van Persie/Eduardo/Vela/Bendtner

Wenger is sold on this idea as (1) Selling Gallas,Traore,Sanderoos & Ade will finance the three new arrivals and (2) This will allow his DM players swap with the CB players – The midfielders cover the wingers and the wingers civer the forwards.

The board are going for this as it will bring in 3 experienced defensive players and also allow Wenger stick to his financial principals. The inly condition from the board is that if we are looking light either up front or on the flanks – Wenger will buy in the January window.

This is the first time I have posted here because before now I didn't know anybody who really had an idea what was going on inside the club. These are the experienced players Wenger is talking about.
  The East Midlands:

Forest will sign

Simeon Jackson

  Birmingham are set to bag themselves three Ranger's players after their good showing in the Scottish Premiership,currently top of the table. These are:
Kris Boyd £250,000
Allan McGregor £3m
Ferguson £1m
Possibly Broadfoot might arrive in exchange for Martin Taylor and cash from Rangers.
  I have it on very good authority the the following transfers are likely to happen this summer or next, especially with a World Cup on the horizon:–

Zhirkov – Inter Milan
Dani Carvalho – Atletico Madrid
D.Silva – Juventus
D.Villa – Barcelona
Ribery – Barcelona (swap with Hleb)
Benzema – Real Madrid (swap with Saviola/Guti/Van Nistelrooy)
Kaka – Real Madrid (AC Milan would want two players in exchange if it were to happen, most likely Sergio Ramos and/or Van der Vaart or Metzelder)
Lahm – Sevilla
Kallstrom – Sevilla/Atletico Madrid/Roma
Katsouranis – Sevilla/Marseille/Hamburg/Stuttgart/Lyon
Joaquin – Everton/Fiorentina/Marseille
Defour – Roma/Sevilla/Atletico Madrid/La Coruna/Marseille/Lyon
Kahlenberg – Lyon
Bendtner – Sevilla
De Rossi – Real Madrid
Chiellini – Barcelona/Arsenal
Silvinho – Celtic/Panathinaikos
Rafinha – Real Madrid (possible 2010)
Boruc – Atletico Madrid/Sevilla/Roma/AC Milan
Hamsik – Roma/Fiorentina/Stuttgart/Hertha Berlin/Hamburg
Diego and Cassano – Juventus (almost certain)
Guardado – AC Milan (2010 at earliest)
Pavel Nedved and Jerzy Dudek both moving on free transfers to CHICAGO FIRE for one last move (especially Dudek, considering Chicago has a very large Polish diaspora anyways)
  Concerning notable ins and outs in the Prem,

Arsenal are looking at Zapata (Udinese) Lucho Gonzalez (Porto) Richards (Man City) Martins (Newcastle) Chivu (Inter) and Glen Johnson
Lucas Neill will leave the Hammers for Liverpool or Villa on a free
Gamst Pedersen is looking to move on from Blackburn, with Everton and West Ham looking likely but not ruling out a move abroad with Atletico Madrid, Udinese, Zenit, CSKA Moscow, Spartak and Hamburg all very possible
Kusczak frustrated at Man Utd and may move on cheap with Zenit and a few other Russian teams interested or could move to one of the top sides in Greece, Turkey or Holland or France
Eto'o is going to be a Man City player, they will break the bank for him and Gudjohnsen is returning to the Prem with either Fulham or West Ham, and the Hammers are looking to replace Neill with a free move for Panucci – also in the frame are Sol Campbell (Wolves and Birmingham linked) and Garrido (Celtic and Bolton interested too) and Darius Vassell could be a Wolves player as well as Nikola Zigic
Kanu is leaving Pompey for Malaga
  Aston Villa Rumours.

Mon to put in a bid for Alan Smith to replace Friedel for next season. In order to continue with this years theme, the remainder of the defence will play in midfield, the midfield will play up front, and the st.johns ambulance will make up the defence. Substitutes will be randomly selected from the Holte end catering staff. It has also been confirmed that MON has lost the dressing room, but is now scouring google earth in the hope that someone has posted a photograph which may give him a clue where it is.

  A busy summer for Liverpool. Alonso is going to Juventus for 20m his replacement is Gareth Barry who could sign as early as the end of May. Daniel Prajnic is all but a Liverpool player with a 8m deal there. Tevez will join for 21m along with Gareth Bale for 9m. So the outgoings are Alonso(20m)Juve , Dossena (5m)Juve , Riera (9m) Villereal , Babel(14m) R.Madrid. Some other players will leave.
  Hello there when u need a laugh u can always rely on this site for starters skrtel to tranmere lol he wouldn't get on there bench and as for carricks future to be decided at the end off the season a joke hes been 1 of man utds best players and if u watch utd he makes them click and also for man utd to be buying benzema ribery and lahm fergie has said himself there will be few arrivals id guess 2 at most valencia of wigan has been touted around for awhile and if tevez leaves which i belive he will hes not worth 30million for 3 prem goals this season work rate can't be denied but for his wage u would run like that aswell. so the striker id like to c at man utd would be samuel eto'o his pace and finishing is wot we lack up front as rooney is playing wide left and is clincial enough. first post feel free to laugh at it i do it to almost every post i read here
  Ashley young is going to chelsea 4 a swap with malouda.agbonlahor is going to arsenal for a swap with adebayor
Liverpool are keeping tabs of Eden Hazard and may consider entering the race to sign him once the summer window opens.Also Rumour has i that Rafa is ready to drop his intrest in Garreth Barry and move to Sign Mark Noble form West Ham after he and team captain Steven Gerrard were very impressed with the youngsters capibilities. Aguero apparently agreed personal terms with Liverpool but the clubs still batteling to agree a fee for the Argentine talent with Athletico wanting to wait to see where they finish in the table before agreeing a amount.

Also i heard that Manchester United have had a bid Accepted for Celtic Midfielder Scott Brown which may include a United youngster or two going the other way on loan
  To the guy who said. .
''West ham news
west ham will buy new QUALITY players in the transfer window to try and get into the europa league next season but zola will have to sell 2–3 of his best players to add to the money he already has,

m noble 6.5m – one of our Best Players I think not
c cole 10m
l boa morte 3m – one of our best Players I think not
l neil 4.5m – one of our Best Players I think not
total income:24m
j garrido 3m
macheda loan
m johnson 8m
lichtsteiner 5m
zola will bring in a unknown striker worth about 9–13m aswell
outcome: 14m +''

where is the quality players? and your outs are completely wrong. 1. Lucas Neill is out of contract in the summer, so no income there.
2. Cole would be sold for a bit more than 10 million considering a 5yr contract was signed this season and he has started to prove himself as a potential England striker. 3. Mark Noble is not worth 6.5 mil. . who's gonna pay that for an over–rated, inconsistent player who wouldn't want to leave west ham anyway. the only one you might have got right is Boa Morte, but will he be sold considering his recent improvement in form?

now to the ins. . . quality???
Why would we sign garrido when Ilunga has penned a permanent deal? Michael Johnson may be a good player BUT he is suffering with a long term injury problem and is not worth 8 Million, expect him to remain at citeh until he has proven himself fit. Macheda. . not gonna happen. again maybe one right here lichtsteiner if neill leaves and that's it!

now for some more realistic (BUT NOT NECESSARILY TRUE) West Ham transfers:
Bowyer – Free
Davenport – 1–2 Million
Gabbidon – 500k
Lopez – End Of Contract
Dyer – 1–2 Million
Faubert – 2–3 Million
Stokes – Free
Lastuvka – End Of Loan
Quashie – Free
Reid – Free
David (USELESS) Di Michele – End Of Loan

Kovac – 2 Million
Ilunga – 2 Million – Already Confirmed
plus a few contract renewals and players that Zola, Clarke and Nani have had there eye on ( and before you say we have no money, Zola has been promised funds to improve his squad in the summer!)
  This one for the pool fan's the thick one's that is?

how can you be signing stewart downing when he signed for spurs in jan 09?????? (deal to be made public in the summer 09)!!!!!! give it up!!!! also gareth barry is a massive spurs fan, and like the press has said, like gareth has said that spurs ARE the only team he would turn down champions league football for!! and would very much welcome a bid from spurs and one last thing gareth would never be going to the ars!! gareth will be at one of three club's nxt term, villa, pool & spurs and if the pool think he's anfield bound then preper for a shock cause his heart is at whl.

F. Campbell, T. Kuszach, out
  I think Man City and thier owners will realise it will be harder than they anticipated to bring a genuine superstar into a makeshift team. However the potential is certainly there, and should they again somehow make the Uefa Cup, better still. I think the owners will realise the need to really strenghten all over to build a solid squad, which the stars can see on the verge of winning things, and being in the CL with. I expect Hughes or any other manager knows this and will go down the chelsea route of stripping midtable prem teams of thier biggest assets. . Expect serious bids for G.Johnson, Haangeland, Lescott, Valencia, Arteta, Barry, Krancjar, Downing, Martins, Santa Cruz. The trick is to buy as many of these CL–standard guys as poss, then try and poach a few genuinely talented guys with experience, like they did with Bridge. Expect good footballers who have been unstable in thier clubs to be bid for. Alonso, Gallas, Tevez, maybe Parker. Finally foreign players won't be high on the agenda, but the superstars will still be bid for. Guys like Kaka, Diego, Villa, Silva etc. Though certain others also, young hungry guys will be scouted already. . Miguel Veloso, Alex Witzel, Stephen Defour. All great and hungry. 5 or 6 of these players mentioned to replace deadwood like Elano, Dunne, Evans, Benjani, maybe even the likes of Phillips. The 3 biggest players added to the squad will be Hamann, Johnson and Petrov returning. So it would be like 8–9 new faces that can play! Added to a Uefa cup standard squad. . Dangerous.
  Rumour has it surrounding Leicester City FC that they will go for the double swoop of Birmingham City duo Kevin Phillips and Mehdi Nafti. Also West Brom want to sign Matty Fryatt for around £1million if they are relegated from the Premier League.

  I am suprised that almost no one is talking about Daniel Pranjic and his transfer to Liverpool. . From what I heard the transfer is almost done.
  Zola will be given £10mill for players plus any cash he can raise. Do no expect to see any major signings as Zola has great belief in the youngsters coming through. He is also keen to bring a couple of loans with purchase options, Balottelli will come in as a purchase along with Vela on loan. Tristan will get a one year deal but Di Michele will go back to Italy. Man City are very keen on Upson and may offer silly money in order to get their man, Zola does have a replacement in mind and has already made tentative enqiries. Carlos Tevez will stay in Manchester, but will be playing in blue next season. The banks will have taken over by Thursday and want West Ham competing in Europe as soon as possible to help boost the company value. They are committed to a three year plan to improve the club and secure a sale.
