Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

United Rumours:
– Silva/Villa won't be coming to United until summer. Both want to stay at Valencia unitl the world cup finals are over to make sure they get there spot in the Spain team.
– 1 big name arriving in January which will be Rene Adler. Fergie rates him well and thinks he would be the perfect keeper to replace Van Der Sar in the future. Around £12.5m will be the cost for him. All other signings in January will be young lads (Ljajic & Kjaer)
– In the summer United will be selling Nani & Carrick. Nani could be involved in the Silva/Villa deal and Carrick will be going to back to Spurs. Carrick will be replaced by Yoann Gourcuff and Nani will be replaced by Silva.
– The transfer money for buying players up to next season will be around £65m all together.
Starting XI for United next season:
Adler, Rafael, Rio, Vidic, Evra, Valencia, Gourcuff, Anderson, Silva, Rooney, Villa
Good times ahead


Contrary to what the board at Bournemouth is saying, Eddie Howe will be moving from Dean Court after being courted by Peterborough.

The Posh see him as an ideal replacement for Darren Ferguson who has apparently had talks with Celtic of all teams!

However, Posh also interested in Southend's Steve Tilson and if Tilson leaves, Eddie Howe could well take over at Southend.

Also, Bournemouth Chairman Edward Mitchell is to be investigated by the FA about being involved in the running of two clubs (Bournemouth and Dorchester Town) and if found to be acting outside the rules Bournemouth will have between three and five points chipped off their total, forcing Mitchell out and the club into hard times (again!)


WHU update ––

Intermarket group have made a £98Mil bid for the club £48m to go on the debt £20m to go to the Blunts & £30M for the club as a going concern , but this is likely to be turned down.
Scott Duxbury as been forced into a corner by the current owners due to him giving Jason Burt to much info about the goings on at Upton Park


It'll come as no surprise to learn that Liverpool are looking for inexpensive cover players in January, perhaps more surprising (or maybe not) is that they're casting their eye over Dutch legend Roy Makaay. Personally, I think they could do worse, this chap has been an absolute goal machine wherever he's been and has had an impressive record recently with Feyenoord. Relatively cheap aswell and could bring the best out of others.


To whoever wrote about Huntelaar to Arsenal to cover for Bendtner, you could be on to something...also just heard found out that Arsenal were trying to nab Andre–Pierre Gignac from Toulouse in the summer but had a few bids rejected, maybe they might start to relight that fire with Bendtner out for a while


Silvestre, Rosicky, Senderos, Traore, Simpson and Almunia to depart before next season. They may be joined by Fabianski who realises a new GK will be bought, and that Mannone has overtaken him in the pecking order. Gallas may also leave if Wenger fails to offer him the right deal.
Rob Green or Manuel Neuer to replace Almunia. both are dependable keepers. Wenger will try to sign Micah Richards from Man City. If Gallas leaves, Mamadou Sakho will become a priority signing. Wenger does not want to miss out on him. Silvestre and Traore will not be replaced by new signings. Instead, 2 out of Eastmond/Gilbert/E–Thomas will be promoted. Mark Noble is being looked at to provide cover for the increasingly impressive Alex Song. Diaby and Denilson are seen as too attacking to fulfil a DCM role. Coquelin may be promoted for next season. Rosicky will not be replaced by new signings either, giving the likes of Ramsey/Wilshere/Merida/Lansbury the chance to stake a place. Up front, an audacious player+cash bid for Agbonlahor will be launched, with either Bendtner or Vela going to Villa on loan for 1 season. If this bid fails, expect Wenger to go after one of Chamakh, Dzeko or C Cole. Szczesny to be promoted. Eden Hazard to sign as a star of the near future.
out: Silvestre, Senderos, Rosicky, Almunia, Simpson, Traore, maybe Gallas, maybe Fabianski, maybe Vela/Bendtner(loan).
in: Green/Neuer, Richards, maybe Sakho, Noble, Agbonlahor, Hazard.


As I said before Mowbray has till the end of December to turn things round. As for the person who included Caldwell as a one of the "popular" players being forced out , you are having a laugh. "Heid" is a joke and universally despised by right thinking Celtic fans. The clown and his partner McManus should and will be out in January. McCarthy will come in and McDonald and Killen out. Antipodean chancers.


Mowbray is under pressure, not only from irate supporters but I have just heard that senior players have had meetings with certain directors about the unrest at the club.
They are unhappy about public criticism in the press when little is said face to face and there is also a failure to adapt to new formations and tactics that invariably have to be scrapped later in games, often when it's too late!!
Players feel that the more popular of them are being forced out the door and bids apparently have been accepted in principle for:– McGeady, MacDonald, Brown and Caldwell to name a few.
The season looks to be one of failure and turmoil, when we should be taking advantage of the problems of our oldest rivals.
The board are split as to giving Mowbray more funds based on his last batch of dross or to appoint a new manager with the cash to push for the Championship as they have had their fingers well and truly burnt with the C.L. qualifiers in the past.


Heard a rumour of a holding mid merry go round in the summer. Mascherano will move to Barce for 35mil, then Yaya Toure will move to Real for 26mil, then Lassana Diarra will move to Liverpool for around 25mil. Makes sense no? All 3 are unhappy at their respective clubs and are more than open to moves. Mark the words of BONZO! Plz post guys.




Man United transfers to happen either January or next summer 90% certain.
David Silva £25 million, Simon Kjaer £10 million, Steven Defour, £15 million, and either Rene Adler or Igor Akinfeev, ignore all talk of another striker coming to Old Trafford, SAF is more than happy with his striking options, with Rooney, Berbatov, Owen, Macheda, wellbeck, Josh King and Diouff coming in january there are plenty of choices, after this season there is a good chance that Nani will be shown the exit door, SAf has been impressed with the way Obertan has taken his chance and shone, with his pace and ability to get passed defenders he has shown enough to be given a sustained run in the team next season.
Take note of the names mentioned above, these will happen!!


Rafa Benitez wants Mascherano out of Liverpool and on to Barcelona, not because of a fall out but because he would bring in money for him to spend in January. Barca are willing to offer £31m for Mascherano and will sign him in early January to give Rafa spending money. Andriy Voronin and Andrea Dossena will also leave for £4m and £5m respectively. He will use £3m to sign Goran Pandev and £12m on Carlton Cole to boost their attacking options. Juan Mata will come in for £17m as he has ahd a fall out wih Valencia chiefs over a new contract. Simon Kjaer will have his buyout clause met at £6m and the last £2m will be used for contract improvements.


Peterborough have made Leeds boss Simon Grayson their number one target after parting the ways with Darren Ferguson who in turn could end up at Leeds!
