Football Rumours Archive June 12 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

This better be posted because I've had enough crap being spouted this summer, especially from the papers.

Liverpool will buy 2–3 players MAX, and will sell Voronin, Dossena, possibly Babel and Benayoun. My source (where all of ye can check is Guillem Balague).

More from this site reveals that Liverpool will entertain selling Alonso at 40–50 million Euro, and that they want him to publically state he wants to leave. The situation, however, now is that Perez's (Madrid President) recent comments about if a club does not want to sell suggests two things

1) Madrid are unwillingly to meet the valuation, thus Liverpool will not sell

2) Liverpool simple won't sell

But this could change if Alonso states he wants to leave, the problem is that he's not saying anything (despite saying he was happy at Liverpool before the Madrid talk started), it seems at the very least he is unhappy at the way he was treated last year.

Additionally, Mascherano a few weeks back stated he was also happy, and suddenly his agent claims he wants the Barca move, however, as Benitez stated he would not be sold for as much as 50 million, I suggest people stop spouting crap (for instance some are claiming he will be sold for 20 something million, get real), plus one person even suggested that Mascherano and Fabreagas would make up the worlds best midflied, you obviously did nt watch the CL final as Iniesta and Xavi are pure class, exactly whats holding Fabreagas out of a starting place in the Spanish national side.

Expect bids for a right back, winger (versatile), and a striker.

We all know Silva has been bidded for and I reckon Rafa will play hard ball here to get his man, but Madrid may step in ruin this.

Stop the Lavezzi nonsense, Rafa rubbished this and has publically stated the papers have nt a clue, so you can stop posting paper talk too.

Lastly, congrats to United for lying all year about Ronaldo, Perez stated that a deal was struck last summer for him, but he wanted to renegotiate it, but because of a clause in the contract he is forced to go through with it at the current price as they will have to pay a penalty to Ronaldo, which would ultimately more less make the money paid out the same (expect this to go through very soon as Ronaldo has already agreed a contract last year).

Well, finally the Ronaldo saga is over. Would have liked it if he had loved Manchester, but his stay was always gonna end. So now SAF has a transfer kit ranging from 100–140mil pounds. 80mil from Ronaldo, 30mil from annual transfer budget, and other sales (Campbell, Simpson, Gibson, and unknown others). Ribery is the top replacement for Ronaldo, but it's gonna come down to price. If its 35–45mil he's ours, if its more, expect SAF to pass. Valencia is a certainty and will cost 16mil. Benzema is the other top target and despite his preference for spain, will most likely be available to united for 30–35mil. David Villa is off to Madrid, but David Silva is open to an English team and a bid could be possible. Ashley Young is also an option. Other central attacking players will depend on whether Tevez stays or leaves. If he leaves, Aguero, Di Maria, Rossi or a similar player could arrive. Ibrahimovich is only a possibility if Berbatov leaves, but that's looking unlikely after his agent came out and shot down all rumours. Def Mid could be a position to consider, with OH out til December, with players like Hernanes, Gattuso, De Rossi, Senna or Yaya Toure options. The backline is pretty set, with the twins set to play a larger role next year and Dodo coming in for youth. SAF will use any leftover funds from first team purchases to buy youth from Brazil. Neymar, Douglas Costa, Falcao, Lulinha, Keirrison, Dentinho, etc. SAF knows that he won't have Ronaldo to rescue the team during poor performances, so he has to really improve other positions on the field and sharpen the link between midfield and attack.
  One of the reasons that SAF was willing to let Ronaldo go was that Real promised to pull out of bidding for Valencia. This allows Man Utd to have a free run at buying him no bidding war. Also he will try to buy Palacios as he wants a quality holding midfielder which would see Hargreves going the other way, this is dependant on THspur! I promise.

Liverpool have sneaked under the radar with the whole no money situation and put a £30m+ bid in for D Villa! If Alonso wants to leave for Real the deal will include Negredo + Gago + cash. Arbeloa is on his way to Athletico with a clause of 1st purchase of Aguerro and G Johnson coming in at RB.

Chelsea will sign Ribery, Pirlo, Pato and expect to see Robben back!!

Arsenal are trying hard to buy W Sjneider the price is a stumbling block may be another long one like Arshavin deal. They will also sign Owen on a free.
  Manchester United are to turn their efforts in signing another relatively unknown to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with a youngster from Belgium called Eden Hazard, 18 years of age and tipped to be the next Messi if not better.
Ronaldinho also being considered for the left wing as Rooney has expressed a strong interest in playing with the Brazilian.

Exciting times for the Reds!

  I was in a resturant in Birmingham last night and saw West Brom chairman Jonathan Peace with Adie Bothroyd
  I don't work in the city and am not related to a footballer/manager/scout etc but heres what ive heard.

Rafa may try for Ashley Young as well as Silva, they are both capable of playing on either wing and Rafa loves versatility!
Have also heard Aguero won't leave Atletico this year for ANYONE! He wants a shot at the champions league with this team and is still good enough and young enough to move next year. LFC may try for a first option on him (. .more on this in a min)
I have heard we will get Negredo. He will be surplus to requirements at Madrid and may not even make the bench with the new Galacticos policy.

I can't say anything for certain on the next bit of news, all i can say is this rumour happens every year, but this year is slightly different. There is a buzz around anfield and people who normally are willing to have a chat are being very close mouthed. Basically a lot of people believe LFC have been sold to DIC, it is just to be announced. There are also a number of comings and goings from some well known Hotels on the outskirts of Liverpool. If LFC are taken over we will try a cheeky first option (which would virtually guarantee his transfer to us next year)for Sergio Aguero. The figure would be substatial but not massive. This would allow Atletico to build on there squad whilst keeping one of their best players for another year. They are happy to do business with LFC because of there excellent working relationship with LFC and Rafa. Lastly I have heard Glen Johnson will not be coming to LFC. He has had his head turned by talk of massive wages which we will not match. He is apparently considering which of three he would want to join– Chavski/ManUre or Man City. With Man City being his likely first choice (highest wage offer). To the Manc posters– ha ha ha ha, youve been posting all year winky is going nowhere he loves the club and the fans and whiskey nose. Well the rest of the league are laughing ourselves stupid at you. Unfortunately you would have had about 30m to spend, this will probably go str8 to your debt now and you'll get the 80m to spend. Still winky the handbag wielding fiend is gone if we get rid of Didier 'i am massive but frequently fall over and cry like a little girl' Drogba, The prem' will be a much fairer and happier league!
Hope we are taken over and this aint another false dawn, either way bring on number 19!

As you all know newcastle are getting rid of all their players, and Arsene will not hesitate to get Obafemi Martins. Here are some other rumours ive heard.

Yaya Toure if Kolo stays £11 million
Klaas Jan Huntelaar (pe with Adebayor) £7 million
David Bentley (1 of the tottenham players that are being sold) £8 million
Xavi Alonso 316 million
Goklna Hinler undisclosed

Kolo Toure to Man City £15 million (if yaya doesn't come)
Robin Van Persie to Inter £17 million
Carlos Vela to West Ham £8 million
Vito Mannone to Barnsley £1 million
William Galls to Juventus £8 million
Emmanuel Eboue to Real Mallorca £3.5 million

Henry is also interested on returning to the Emirates, but no offer has been made by Arseene
  Arsenal to sign either Yaya or Veloso. 2 Centre Halfs in Vermaelaen and Richards. And don't rule out bids for Crouch and Dzeko if Ade goes.
  With CR7 and Kaka now at the Bernebeu, Perez will lok 2 add Villa who they have already offered 30 million 4 but Valencia want 35 + Negredo an agreement should b reached soon. Madrid will look 2 add Alonso but Perez is not willing 2 pay over the odds. They need a new CB and Raul Albiol has been lined up with Bruno Alves as back–up.

Barcelona are ahead in the race 4 Bruno Alves, while they retain 1st refusal on Ribery but are only willing 2 offer 40 million which is not sufficient as Bayern want somewhere around 65 million. They are preparing a 30 million bid 4 Mascherano despite Benitez's comments and are close 2 reaching a deal with Inter over Ibrahmovic and Maxwell which will more than likely see Yaya Toure go the other way.

There is a huge battle going on between Man Utd,Real Madrid, Inter, Barca and Arsenal for the signiture of Karim Benzema however it depends on other sales. Man Utd are favourites and are willing 2 pay 30 million out of the money the recieved from the Ronaldo transfer. Real Madrid have first refusal on Benzema and the option to pay 40 million and sign him after the World Cup in 2010 but are focused on Villa. Inter Milan could opt 2 take a large sum from Barca instead of the proposed swap deal between Eto'o and Ibrahimovic and move for Benzema while Barca could try for Benzema should the deal 4 Ibra fall thru. Arsenal do not have the money to compete with any of the other 4 clubs but have an ace in Adebayor who is admired by Lyon and wanted 2 sign him before his 2006 move from Monaco. Arsenal may offer 10 million + Adebayor 4 Benzema, this is highly unlikely though.

Chelsea are in competition with Man Utd 4 Ribery and Real Madrid 4 Villa. They are outsiders in both but are likley 2 sign Zhirkov (at around 18.5 million) and Sessengon (for 10 million). Carvalho is very close to signing a loan deal with Inter with the option 2 buy, while Deco and Beletti are likely 2 be used as bargaining chips in a bid 4 Aguero that could see 40 million pounds+ Deco and Beletti move to Atletico. The main problem will b his wage demands that stand at 160000 pounds a week AFTER TAX.

Arsenal will have a lower–profile summer with the deal 4 Ajax captain Vermalen almost done, 10 million pounds while Wenger is preparing a bid 4 Mamadou Sahko that could see Silvestre or Gallas inserted + 5 million. Hangeland is seen as ideal but Fulham want 15 million which may prove 2 much. In midfield Wenger is likely 2 chose between Veloso and Blaise Matudi, there are concerns over Veloso's attituide but both would cost somewhere in the reigion of 7–10 million. Mohamadou Dabo could replace an unsettled Eboue who is admired by Inter, Juve and Atletico.

Liverpool will also have a low–profile summer with few ins and outs. Dossena is on his way 2 Juventus while Degan is going 2 Schalke. Benitez will do his best 2 hold on 2 Mascherano and Alonso but if he fails Javi Martinez is his replacement and Bayern Munich's Tim Borowski. Alvaro Negredo has been watched by Liverpool but Tuncay remains the favourite 4 the switch. David Silva is not really an option 4 Benitez as he will b priced out of a deal with Real Madrid. Man Utd and Barca hovering. The big surprise is a bid 4 Ashley Young who Benitez believes he can tempt for around 20 million + Benayoun

Man Utd have 100 million 2 spend with the transfer of CR7 and their priority is 2 sign Tevez as he is a crowd favourite and 25 million will b put on the table. SAF is a huge fan of Valencia and 17 million should do the trick but Alexis Sanchez is also a possibility at 20 million. Finally, Benzema at 30 million.
  Gary Johnson is chasing Coventry City's Dimitrios Konstantopoulos after the recent departure of Chris Weale from Bristol City's Ashton Gate.




  To the guy who mentioned 'Jimmy Briand going to Sunderland', I have also heard about this rumour. Sunderland have been interested in Briand for a while now, despite his recent injury.
  To the guy who wrote this. .
Everton: big things happening this summer, here's a potential team for next season.


G.Johnson M.Upson P.Jagielka L.Baines

A.Young S.Parker M.Fellaini P.Neville Maxi


R.Green – 10 mil
M Upson – 10 mil
S. Parker – 7 mil
Maxi (Ath. Madrid) – 15 mil
Kalinic (Hajduk Split) – 9 mil


T.Howard – Arsenal – 13 mil
Joleon Lescott – Man City – 25 mil
Louis Saha – PSG – free (pay as you play)

Ins = 51 mil Outs = 38

Total spend = 13 milliom

Howard has just signed a new contract, so why would we sell the guy who just broke our clean sheet record? And why would West Ham sell their 3 best players to us?! Be serious!! And you missed Glen Johnson off your list of purchases! ;–)

I heard Everton are still keen on Obinna from Inter, after missing out last year due to work permit issues. Also, Mbia is being talked about alot.

I doubt Lescott will be sold, unless we get £25m for him. . . or Jo and about £15m.
(GK)Owain Fon Williams – Stockport – 1m,
(RB)Gianni Zuiverloon – West Brom – 2.5m,
(CB)Steven Taylor – Newcastle – 3.5m + Collins,
(LB)Joe Mattock – Leicester – 1m + Sears(Loan),
(LM)Luis Jiminez – Inter Milan – 7m,
(CM)Joe Ledley – Cardiff – 5m + Gabbidon,
(CM)Jonjo Shelvey – Charlton – 1m,
(CM)Jordi Gomez – Espanyol – 2.5m,
(AT)Djibril Cisse – Marseille – 4m + Faubert,
(AT)Danny Sturridge – Man City – Free(To sweaten the Bellamy deal).
  I'm the guy that told you Ronaldo would be transferred as soon as Madrid tabled an £80m offer. I said that 6 months ago, so you can see that I know my stuff. Man United will table an offer of £20m for Everton midfielder, Fellaini. You heard it here first!
  Just heard the lescott will be signing for real madrid next week in 25–30m deal
  Man United have reached an agreement to sign Aaron Lennon from Tottenham Hotspur FC for £22 million my SOURCES understand.
We Believe the deal is a done deal from my understanding. Close contacts at Man United and Tottenham have told us the deal has been reached with Harry Redknapp at Tottenham Hotspur FC and the player will undergo a medical next week at at Man United.

Should Lennon move to Old Trafford, he would follow in the footsteps of Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov, both of whom left White Hart Line to join United.


My source insists that Real Madrid will make a £28m move for Everton star, Joleon Lescott. As mentioned earlier, Manchester City have taken the bidding up to £25m. Real have raised the stakes now, and David Moyes is certain to accept the higher bid. Will City follow suit?
  It has been a couple of weeks since I have posted anything and I thought that this may be an appropriate time to provide an update on the Sergio Aguero situation. Some will recall I stated a couple of weeks ago that all signs were that Chelsea would be making a move for Aguero. Aguero had first been bought to Chelsea’s attention by Hugo Tocalli who had also identified Franco di Santo as “one for the future”. In January 2008 Diego Maradona visited the UK with a small party of affiliates. The same week di Santo was formalising his transfer to Chelsea. Discussions were held about Aguero and Chelsea continued with their watching brief (as did a number of clubs).

In January 2009 Maradona returned to the UK – this time as Argentina Head Coach and future father in–law of Aguero. Discussions were very much targeted at the future of Aguero with both Chelsea and Manchester United questioned as to their interest. Chelsea made it absolutely clear that they were interested in the player and were looking at guidance for how discussions could proceed. I understand there was no mention of money but a concern was raised about, of all things, the size of Chelsea’s pitch. I somehow doubt that this would be a show stopper. As I understand matters as of Thursday evening, Chelsea has opened discussions with Athletico with a view to establishing a position where both parties can agree that Chelsea can approach the player and his representatives.

I am by no means sure that Manchester United will not enter discussions about Aguero. I very much doubt that any other club will be looking seriously at the player. Comments here about the player moving to Liverpool are very wide of the mark – and conjecture about players moving clubs so they can play with their national compatriots and school friends is pretty much laughable. We had a situation in my native America about 8 or 10 years ago when one of the very top players forced a return to his home town side (consider them a mid–table club). His career went downhill from there.


The budget for the entire season is £15m – that is including all wages, and all transfer fees. Last season, we spent £8m on wages (just short, actually) and with % increases on promotion, that goes up to £8.75m.

van der Schaaf and Berisha have been told that they can find new homes – Coyle doesn't think of them as part of the tight–knit squad, and he isn't bothered about getting a fee for them, he just wants rid of them. That will cut VDS wages of £7k per week and Berisha's £3k per week saving around £500k – meaning that leaves us £6.25m for new wages and any transfer fees. Coyle has said that he wants 10 new players, but he's going to get 6, or possibly 7 if he can twist Kilby and Flood's arm – but they are 2 men that like to stick to a budget, and fair play to them, they don't want to ruin our club.

Anyway, we won't be paying silly fees like £6m for Doyle that has been mooted, £3m for Beckford or £5m for Campbell. We also don't want to pay the £2m that Williams are asking for Rhys Williams – despite how highly Coyle rates him.

From what I have heard, Burnley are looking at the following;

Rhys Williams – loan deal
Jose Baxter – loan deal
Russell Anderson – £250,000
Andrew Driver – £1.75m – this will be the biggest fee we spend, for a player Coyle has tracked for years.
Danny Welbeck – loan deal

Up the Clarets, watch those queues.
  Celtic F.C.

New Manager DEFINITELY Mowbray. .Lawwell waiting a few more days to save £0.5m on his release clause. Peter (The Pointer) Grant, and Mark Venus will join him as his Backroom staff, leaving Neil Lennon pretty much out in the cold. Lennon will soon leave, to take up a new post at Aston Villa, with his mentor Martin O'Neill.

Celtic Signings:
Morrison (WBA)
Fletcher (Hibernian)
Jones (Hibernian)

Rangers Signings:
Boyd (Peterborough Utd)
Mackail–Smith (Peterborough Utd)
Jackson (Gillingham)
Griffiths (Livingston)

The deal with "The Posh" is being sealed with a pre–season friendly to take place in July at London Rd, Peterborough.
"Iain the Know".
  Strong rumours that United will be signing three frenchmen: Benzema, Obertan and Gourcuff. Plus Alexis Sanchez.
  Rafa knows he has a squad that is just a few signings away from winning the premiership first position he will look at is right back he will sell arbeloa to athletico madrid for 6mil and will then sign glen johnson for 6mil plus 7mil from crouch deal then he will sign cover for center back he will bid 2mil for distin or 4mil for heinze. then coming in will be some attacking midfeilders javi martinez 10mil who will be the long term replacment for steven gerrard when he retires he will then try to sign a winger with a bit of flare david silva was a smokescreen for juan mata 12mil and a back up striker in tuncay sanli for 8mil these transfers will cost around 38mil these will be funded by sales and the robbie keane transfer money.
  Bolton are looking to pulling off another Okocha/Djorkaeff coup by landing Del Piero from Juventus. A bid of £3 million has been accepted Bolton are now just trying to persuade Alessandro to swap Turin for Bolton. Good luck I say!
  New boys Wolves are close to agreeing the transfer of Nicky Butt from Newcastle. Mick McCarthy knows that experience and leadership is going to be vital to PL survival.
  Newcastle and Middlesborough are going head to head in battle for striker Marlon Harewood. He is available at £2.5 million and would be a good aquisition for either side. Have also heard that Newcastle want to bring back Deitmar Hamman on a free for his final season before he retires.
  Aston Villa are close to completing a deal for West Brom's Paul Robinson. My source says the fee is just £1.5 Million.
  Bristol City have had a £325,000 offer accepted for ex Arsenal forward Tomas Danilevičius. The Lithuania international is expected to agree terms next month, replacing Dele Adebola who will sign for Notts Forest.
  My friend in Italy is informing me that Napoli are checking out Yossi Benayoun from Liverpool. He reckons that it will be part of a part exchange involving Marek Hamsik.
  Just come back from Amsterdam and there is a lot of talk about Ryan Babel coming back to Ajax, although most think it will be on loan. One guy told me it is part of the deal that brings Sulejmani to Anfield. Don't know much about him but this guy says he is a great player. I also heard that Tottenham are interested in signing Aissati for nearly £10 million. He is very highly regarded at Ajax so it looks like it would be a good signing!
  Spurs Rumours: It's all a bit what ifs and maybes. Depending on who stays will determine what type and position of player comes in, if we can get them.

Right Back: Hutton,Chimbonda and Corluka
CB: Corluka as cover if Hutton/Chimbonda stay

Srna looks a good buy if Bentley goes and can play right wing back. If he comes Hutton or Chimbonda will go and Corluka can still cover at CB and RB

In fact Bilic reckons Corlukas best position is holding midfield. Zokora out then, Huddlestone out in January if we get a better option in.

Arry's wish list then: Moutinho; Albiol; Veloso; Srna; Stephane Mbia; Stijn Shaars (left sided midfield) Damien Duff; Sturridge; Joe Cole!!

But we've all seen Arry has his own ideas and pops up with players out of the blue, that's why there's very littl ITK stuff out there. I live near Glasgow and there's still stuff about Mcgeady and Scott Brown doing the rounds. Seems things can't be done until the new manager has his say.
  Tony Mowbray is considering the Celtic job due to him not being able to cope with the expexctations at West Brom. I was informed by a reliable source within the club, that in a meeting with the chairman after the last game of the season, Mowbray was told he must work with a 20 man squad and if the team was not in the top two come christmas he was out. Mowbray knows he is about forth choice for the Celtic job but he believes he can get his career back on track after his failure at West Brom.
Man u fans arte crazy if you think the money is being re–spent in to the club you will sign one player and the rest will go on paying off some off the club debt.

You will sign Ribery for 40 million Euros (35 million pounds)

Ronaldo gone 80 Million done deal. .
Nani to Sporting Lisbon for Moutinho.
Robben from Real Madrid part of Ronaldo deal
Huntlear from Real Madrid part of Ronaldo deal.
Tevez will be at City by Thursday next week.
Vidic will be tempted by a move to Barca but will stay.
Dodo from Corinthians will arrive in Jan.
Pele Future French National Goalkeeper will be brought in.
Barzageli from Wolfburg as cover for Rio and Vidic.
  Arsenal News

I don't know anyone at Arsenal but i do have an uncle who played for them in the 60's 70's and talking to him he reckons the following might happen, based on what he's seen so far this year in the market.


Robert Green
Vermaelen(he didnt mention him, but as we all know its a done deal)
De Rossi or Inler or yaya, veloso will not be bought by any of the big four.
Hazard and Huntelaar.

he also said he's heard reliable talk of Cabaye.

i'll reserve judgement till august.

heres hoping.
  I can't help but think it is funny how many of you Man Utd fans have been insisting that Ronaldo wasn't actually saying. In fact, it is laugh out loud funny. Reading yesterdays rumours was highly enjoyable. But this is only the beginning, Devils. After his performance for England the other night, Perez is said to be rekindling his interest in Rooney, and his splendid double–act with Ronaldo. And with the debts of the Glaziers, United can hardly say no. Do not criticise me, Devils, you know that this is a genuine possibility.
I also laughed when I heard from a mate that Jermaine Beckford was set to reject any club that he didnt think would go straight into the Premier League. I don't mean to offend, but unlucky Doncaster and Barnsley fans (and the Geordies). You can hardly blame the lad though. He's been stuck in the third tier with Leeds for two years, scoring 54 goals in competitions; he clearly needs to move up to the highest level. I'm all for this move to Burnley, and if they are willing to pay the 3mil quoted, I would say they stand a real chance of landing a quality forward.
But you never know, do you
Malcolm Shaffer
  I konw this has been going on for a while but David Moyes is going for Joao Moutinho again. Sporting Want Around £16m for him but Everton are Looking Making the money up in bonuses and hoping to pay about £12m

Also anichebi is going to sheff wed, hull or cardiff for the season.

Also Messi coming to goodison this season (i can dream can't I)

the rest keep your eyes on
  A couple of very reliable sources suggest that WATFORD are seriously considering ALEX INGLETHORPE (Director Spurs Youth Acaademy, ex–Exeter Manager and one time Watford player) as a candidate for their managerial vacancy. Highly regarded within the game, young and with excellent contacts, knowledge of young (cheap and loan potential)players, ambitious and his teams play with style. Everything that they identified as being good in Brendan Rodgers. I am assured that he will make the short list and is already impressing the Board at Vicarage Road. . . . .
  Hi, this is who I think United will sign. Free Transfer Michael Owen– to be like Slskaer and Tevz– sit on the bench that won't worry him, like Henrik Larsson. Luka Modric– to replace Scholes and someoen who will pass, run all day and hold on to the ball like Inesta. Benzema, to add pace, height and skill.Someone who can hold the ball up. Aarron Lennon– pace, trickery and goals. Possibly– the big lad Everton
  According to reports real madrid will spend big this summer,, after securing the signings of kaka (59 million) and c ronaldo (80 million) leaves them with 161 million left. i think they will sign the following:
David Villa 45 million (116 million left)
Xabi Alonso 26 million (90 million left)
Frankc Ribery 70 million (20 million left)
Raul Albiol 20 million (Budget Spent)

Real Madrid Team Next Season.
Ramos Pepe Albiol Heinze
Alonso Diarra
Ronaldo Kaka Ribery

if this is a starting 11 for Madrid Next Season then all i can say is wow. . .

other news, javi martinez expected to complete switch to liverpool before end of the month. .dony know the figures but watch out for this kid,, very talented!!!
  LFC News

I've recently been working on a proposal with a well known city investment group and the Liverpool owners have agreed a deal with a middle–eastern investment fund to finance the new stadium.

The fund and current owners who'll effectively own a 1/3rd of the club each, have also agreed to use some of this capital to finance a big signing this summer in order to help Liverpool to maintain a challenge whilst the stadium is built.

The club are keeping this quiet for the time being as all parties concerned think it'll be best to announce all the deals at once to spark enthusiasm prior to their tour of the far east

I don't know the player(s) they're looking at but the budget is close to 50m.




  The big news at Villa Park at the moment is that Fabian Delph has been signed and will be announced any day now, and also that David Bentley has also agreed to terms and it's just a matter of haggling over a few bob on the fee. He too is expected to be announced as a signing soon.

Strong rumours also suggesting the likes of David Wheater and Michael Owen are next on the list for O'Neill who has money to spend again this Summer.
  Any spurs incoming news, all i hear is we are selling everyone, surely someone has at least a half decent rumour.
  News from the Manuel Ruiz de Lopera in Sevilla:
Sergio Garcia (8–10m euros)
Ricardo Oliveira (10m)

are both looking for a new club to relegate, Zaragoza will be sniffing around but probably don't have the funds. The same host of English clubs from last year (Stoke, Liverpool, Spurs, West Ham) also interested.
  Dubai International Capital have had a £425m bid for Liverpool accepted
  Stade Rennais have offered young striker Jimmy Briand to sunderland for around 8 mil.

Sunderland tried to sign Briand last year but Rennais refused to sell. They now want to cash in on him and have sparked Bruce's interest. The scouts who went to look at him last year have only good things to say about him and this deal is likely to be confirmed a week after Bruce gets back from holiday
  Can anyone tell me why Beckham was being booed against Andora by the fans? At first I thought they were shouting shoot.

  HOPEFULLY Arsenal will sign a DM, and one of the following would be nice. . .
(Rough guess at the prices?)
DM– Yaya Toure –Barca £15m
– Veloso –Sporting Lisbon £10–15m
– De Rossi –Roma £15–20m
– M Diarra – Real Madrid £10m
– Barry would have been great, but he opted for the cash rather than playing some decent footy in the champs league!
– Barnetta –B Leverkusen. – Melo –Fiorentina and a load of players names from the french League have poped up too. Dont know too much about any of the french league players to be honest!

Defender Centre – Would prefer someone that's had a couple of years playing in Europe or with their national team and around the age of 25 (so not to pickie, lol).

– Bruno Alves –Porto £10m
– Vermaelen –Ajax looks like it might happen soon for around the £10m mark?
– Hangeland –Fulham, but they will end up asking for a small fortune, like £15m which is far to much for 1yrs decent performance in the prem? If we could get him for around £7–10m at the most then maybe?
– Albiol – Valencia £10–12m
– or any number of the German defenders out their as their useually pretty solid, physically/in the tackle and the air.

Lets just hope we can keep our players injury free for next season as it would have made a difference last season for sure. And who know's. . . hopefuly a Prem or champ's league trophy in the emirates trophy room next season! Fingers crosssed.

  Hartlepool are set to sign Norwegian under 21 International Aksel Berget Skjolsvik from Molde. The deal should be complete in the next 7 days. He is an attacking Midfielder with a good shot and also a good team player.

  Told you about ronaldo now some more news

liverpool is already brought by DIC anouncment from 1–12th of july.

silva, will be brought before the anouncment.

tevez is one in the balance liverpool can afford him and want him but with the sale of ronaldo so can united. it is up to him as he loves the united fans but is unhappy with the way he was treated and lack off football. the choice is his nd don't be supprised either way

Benzema is negotiatiing with man u and lyon about a move cosying around £20–£30m expect it to take a while s the tevez issue is going to be resulved first

man in the no
  To all the silly manchester united fans making up rumours day in day out, claiming their unlcle's mates son is a ball boy at united, Ronaldo was never going to stay, we all knew that! so why make up silly rumours?
You all have egg on your faces now don't you!


N'Guesson is pretty much a done deal

Leicester are still interested in Simon Cox, but will not budge on 2 million.

Rumour has it that Fredy Sears was seen looking around the walkers on tuesday (like i say a rumour)

Aviram Baruchyan is being tracked by city, he plays for a side caleed Beitar Jerusalem, but according to gossip Ajax are reportedly interested.

City left back Joe Mattock is linked with a number of clubs (Liverpool, West Ham, Ipswich?)
I work with a guy who claims he knows his dad, he says that he isn't going anywhere, especially not the tractor boys)

DJ Campbell to Ian Hollowheads Blackpool

Finally i want to add these are rumours!! I am not quoting figures, because lets face it, none of us actually know do we? Ronaldo 40 mill + Huntallar? looks like your a few quid of people!
To finish my rant, I have had enough with people making up silly stories, why do you do it. . . its getting boring. To the people who give some decent rumours that they have heard on the grapevine, keep up the good work!

Thanks for reading. . . . .

  I have it on very good authority from a source close to Martin O' Neill that there will be changes to the forward line at Villa this season.

Owen will be signing a two year deal and the plan is to pair him with Heskey like their days with Liverpool and England. This should be tied up in the next couple of weeks.

Carew will be moving on and there are currently two offers on the table.

And although widely rumoured he will be going elsewhere, Villa are also very keen on a deal for Darren Bent which they belivee they will conclude over the next month.
  Danny Welbeck has been allowed to leave Man UTD on loan and will join Burnely for the season. With Coyle looking to improve his sqaud to survive the first season in the premiership, he has identified Wellbeck as his main target.
  Liverpool takeover. . . . .i really wish i could tell you who i got my info from, sadly i can`t as this is to sensative and the club would know where it came from. .anyway d.i.c have arrived we have been taken over and as stated in another rumour it is kept quiet due to price hiking in the transfer market. i am also sure that hicks or gillette will let it slip before it`s announced because they have been lucky in getting a good deal something which they thought had gone. . rafa has money and rafa has some great targets so cheer up it`s going to get exiting. . .

thank you by wasif mahmood

Are you for real mate ? lets start with the facts,,, you posted this after ronaldo's bid was accepted by manu,,, which is £80 mill not 60 mill. secondly who is going to pay for Kuszczak for 7 mill ? again be real hes only worth 4 at the most, now to your incomings. .
out of the 4 ya put maybe ya got 1 (one) right and that's valencia,. Benzema won't go for less than 32 mil. David Villa is on his way to Chelski for 45 mill. And if you really think your going to buy the best player in the world for £45 mill when ronaldo is worth 80 mill then your either drunk on drugs or playing to much footy manager. Messi won't leave Barca for less than £100 mill. and if he does go it aint to the mancs, it would be to real, Chelski or man city as they the only ones who can afford him. So please please get your facts right before ya post. . instead of your dreams. Now to some proper rumours . .

Chelski – zirhkov ( spelling) price unknown
Chelski – Villa ( £45 mill

Liverpool – All depends on what others do first ie Chelski for Johnson, Spurs for Downing, Man City for Tevez.

Manu – Valencia 16 mill,
Manu – Poss Benzema – £32 mill

Arsenal – Honestly don't care as they aint a threat anymore

Man City – Etoo 25 mill, ( only poss)
and anyone else who is greedy for money ie ( robinho & Barry )

Well that's all i got. seeya soon DuffBeer
Alright Gunners fans. .
The Vermaelen deal is basically done but there is still more movement in and out of Arsenal
Luc CASTAIGNOS (5 million) – Feyernoord – he is not going to Liverpool, Castaignos understands that Arsenal will become the best club in England in the next ten years and wants to be part of it
Yaya TOURE (18 million) – Barcelona – Wenger understands that he needs a commanding DM and Toure wants to join his brother
Edin DZEKO (11 million) – Wolfsburg – this guy is class, he is physical but still scores goals
Eden HAZARD (6 million) – Lille – young Belgian midfielder who will be the future partner to Nasri
Sofiane FEGHOULI (6 million) – Grenoble – He is our next Nasri, apparently he is as good as Zidane. .
Emmanuel ADEBAYOR (18 million) – AC Milan
William GALLAS (6 million) – PSG/Juventus
Henri LANSBURY (loan) – Championship
Jay EMMANUEL–THOMAS (loan) – Championship
Gilles SUNU (loan) – League 1
DENILSON – I think he is class but the masses don't. . (Serie A)
Emmanuel EBOUE – A great impact player (mid table prem team)
Kolo TOURE – I really hope this doesn't happen, he is our rock (Man City)
I really think we can finish 2nd/3rd next year and then build from there

  My cousin works for a leading hotel in London and saw Cardiff manager Dave Jones and another middle aged guy meet and have discussions with somebody who checked in under the account of West Bromwich Albion FC
  Glasgow Rangers Latest – from my contact at Murray Park

As we know Walter needs to get rid of players before he brings anyone in. So before June finishes expect the following people out the door, along with Dailly & Hemdani who have already gone and arron who has gone back to Valencia.


Adam £0.5m to either Blackpool or N Forest.
Beasley £0.5m to Schalke.
Ferguson to Birmingham £1.2m
S Smith £0.5m to Watford
Gow £0.3m to Derby
McGregor £4.5m to Birmingham

Total £7.5m

Boyd & i'm afraid McCulloch are going nowhere.


Hreidarrsson from Portsmouth £0 , although 34 walter sees him like weir and gough before him a fit professional who has two to three years left at the top and he can cover centre half and left back

Brunt from WBA £3m the Northern Ireland internationalist is seen as the player to fill the left wing position and to join up Davis & Lafferty.

Brescaino from Palermo £3m will be targeted for the midfield to replace the loss of Ferguson.

and last but not least Walter has always been a fan of out of favour villa striker Marlon Harewood and he will be picked up for £1.5m

Total £7.5m

The only deal which may not materialise is Brunt from WBA if this falls through expect a deal for Driver from Hearts with Velicka & Webster going back to Hearts plus cash.

Remember where you heard it first.
  Robert Koren to Stoke – £6m.
  I am the guy who said that said ronaldo would join madrid this season via the clause in his contract (sighned last season)stating madrid could speak to him if a an offer of 90 million euro's was tabled to manchester united.

Two very potential transfers that i am hearing from my advisors are robert green to manchester united; simply due to the fact of the retirement of van der sar, and ferguson doesn't beleive that foster is STILL not ready! And also don't be surprised it manchester city bid for Stuart downing; mark huges wants decent english players at good prices; ands also with the sale of robinho inevitable man city are sure to make a bid.

U heard it here first
  I am peter kenyons 2nd couson and he couldnt make my wedding this week as he is in madrid to over see a british transfer record he will be home in 4 days so keep your eyes open
  Antony stokes will move to celtic along with darren gibson [man u] marc antonie fortune and marek cech [wba] plus 1 blue chip signing from barca
  Hello, some news from the championship here.
I know a lot of the Bristol City forum read this site, so thought I'd drop in a few little snippets for them guys. they know who i am YES SIRee.

anyway, onto the 'rumours' all of which i am as confident as i could possibly be about.

City will not be selling Marvin Elliot to wolves, he has now signed a contract. however he has a non promotion fee releas clause of £5m. this has caused Lansdown and Johnson to put all their attentions into achieving the ultimate goal. Premiership football.
With 8 already gone from the squad, the Robins will be signing players to improve their core.
–Steven Appiah will return to professional football after over a year without a club, the Ghanain captain will be the heart of the midfield
–Avoiding the hype about Jermaine Beckford, Johnson will buy his strike partner Luciano Becchio for £1m from Leeds
– Giles Barnes will arrive on a season long loan with the option of signing him for upward of £2m
– A link with Liverpool FC will be announced, and Damien Plessis and Sebastian Leto will sign on loan for 2 seasons
– City have enquired about Billy Sharp and Danny Haynes, but as of yet have received no feedback
– Djimi Traore will end his Portsmouth Hell by signing on a 3 year contract, he will be promised his preferred left back position
– City will anounce the most significant transfer in their recent history too, when they complete the signing of argentinian wonderkid and Under 17 captain Maxmilliamo Otibé from Boca.

I have serious money on Bristol City gaining promotion this year
  'West Ham to sign Fabio Quagliarella, Marek Hamsik, and Lee Sharkey, all part of the Napoli visit to Upton Park this summer. Zola and Nani are creating a young, technical, attacking, and highly talented football team. Look out EPL, this team will be young, hungry, and very dangerous. .for years to come. COYI!!!' Quagliarella signed for Napoli June 1st this year. So he cannot move again. Fail. Liverpool are going after Aguero, whether they meet Atletico's valuation is another matter.
  Legendary Cardiff City football fan Dai Hunt has been seen meeting with Sam Hamman as the Lebanese Business Man looks set to sweeten the inner circle of fans before a shock take over of power at the Welsh Club.
Meanwhile West Ham will look to Joe Ledley to bolster the Hammers Midfield. However it looks like Cardiff will only agree to a deal if they promise to take Stephen McPhail as well.
  Burnley are set to sign upto 8 new players this summer.
Owen Coyle is interested in signing:

Andrew Driver – £1,500,000
Leroy Lita – Free
David Nugent – Loan
Sean StLedger – £2,500,000

  Billy Sharp back to Scunthorpe to partner Hayes, Hooper will depart
  King Leonardis. . Sorry Rafa, will have 2 teams next year (Prem/Champ & FA/Carling), but the fact is he is really happy with the squad and feels that it can be tweaked. I won't insult you with the dross which is likely to go and this will pay for the injection of a new bread of youngsters following the academy shake up. He has said that he only needs one or two major players with the likelihood being one FB and possibly LW. You know who i have touted so i won't repeat the KD connection. Deco looks like hes on his way out (Inter), I prayed for Ronaldo to go now we only need Drogba to go and this league will be a handbag free zone. Monopoly money being thrown about but Ronaldo could be the difference of 5 points come the end of the season unless he is properly replaced and there no guarantees there. I still think kiss the ring Frank Lamp may be going to Inter but this is just a hunch (or was that the Portugese player Quasimodo). Remember take care of each other, and smile.

  I don't understand how people can say that Liverpool don't have any money to spend. Okay, they have lost over £40million over the past year but are in less debt than the other clubs in the top 4. The £350million debt is against the owners not the club, the club debt is around £80million.
Rafa will definately go in for Glen Johnson and will try to do this before Portsmouth complete their proposed takeover just to keep the funds stable while Gaydamak is still owning to club. This will be for £7million, and the remaining £7million from the Crouch transfer that Pompey owe to Liverpool.
David Silva is still a possibility, for around £18million. Rafa won't have a load to spend but only wants to make a couple of signings as he feels the squad needs tweaking not overhauling.
  Right im getting sick of stupid utd fans saying there going to Yoan Gourcuff he was on loan at Girdins de Bordeux on has signed a long term deal with them so your not going to sign him o and your nothing without Ronaldo good luck :)

Anyways down to business

Offical Everton F.C Transfers

Fabian Delph 4m from Leeds Utd

Arda Turan 10m Galatarsay

Joao Moutinho 14m Sporting Lisbon

Joleon Lescott 11m (plus the 2)

Andy Van der meyde (free)

Tony Hibbert (Stoke)
  Personally, I thought Ronaldo was a great player but he has weaknesses. The selfishness of his play has cost United a lot of goals. I think United will go for a (3 style of side. Nani will be the Giggs (Douglas Costa would be nice) and Valencia the Kanchelskis. I can see Fergie¿s buying a new front man like Benzema because he has charisma, style, marketing potential and star quality we fans like. He needs a stop gap between Berbei and Macheda or Wellback.I really think the most crucial is to find a passer like Modric, and even perhaps a bull dozer like Mairon Felloini at Everton. I personally think he will create a Dogs of War kind of side. He always changes the style of play when there is a big transfer. Expect to see Modric playing at United and perhaps a double deal for Lennon, or even a triple with Bale on the left. Stranger things have happened. Free Transfer Michael Owen– to be like Solskaer and Tevez– sit on the bench that won¿t worry him, like Henrik Larsson. Luka Modric– to replace Scholes and someone who will pass, run all day and hold on to the ball like Inesta. Benzema, to add pace, height and skill and someone who can hold the ball up Possible– Aaron Lennon– unpredictable, maybe to so, pace, trickery and goals Possibly– the big lad from Morocco (Belgium) the enforcer Everton Felaini Surprise possible Roy Keane type and threat in air. Surprise possible Bale– Beckham. Anderton type runs all day and with a fine cross.
  Carvalho to Man City for £9 million, first team football for the experienced centre half suits both parties
  I work at Melwood as a Caretaker and get to see most of the players daily and also the youth. I also see management and coaches and will let you into a secret of what i saw.

David Silva with Rafa Benitez and two other men in suits going into one of the offices. I knew it was Silva because i asked my co–worker who said it was definately him.

Other rumours i have heard about Melwood is that Babel is going to stay, Johnson may be coming but only if Arbeloa leaves and that Tevez's representative's have already been to Melwood as have Levezzi's and also Aguerro's.

Caretaker Man
  When i was working at Doncaster Rovers today because i am a groundsman who roams about the Keepmoat, guess who pulled up in a black Audi. Jermain Beckford and another man outside the West Stand. They were met by one of the director's or someone and was quickly rushed into the Keepmoat. A person who works with me said that they left about an hour and half after i saw them. They arrived at about 2.20pm and left after. It was definately Beckford and what a coup that would be for Rovers. Sir John Ryan is definately splashing this summer!!
  Rafahas 25 million pounds of funds plus sales so he will look to sign micah richards from man city for a straight payment of 6 million pounds as he has been offered to the premier league and rafa likes a bargain perfect versatile defender competition for arbeloa and cover for any of the back four. Rafa will also sign adam johnson for 8 million pounds as he has been tipped to be the next downing, another player who will arrive at anfield is a striker negredo 8 million pounds will see him leaving almeria this summer, Our major signing will be david silva a 20 million pounds fee will be accepted because valencia are in financial meltdown and i don't see him bench warming at real, also arriving will be david bentley for 8 million pounds as he has been offered to the premier league as well as micah, leaving will be javier mascherano 20 million pounds plus sergio busquets and riera for 10 million pounds and dossena to juventues for 8 million pounds and the only other player who will be leaving will be benayoun to athletico madrid for 10 million pounds as well. So rafa will have spent around 50 million pounds on top quality players and also have 25 million pounds left over to buy another big name and/or the regular youngsters same as every season also leaving will be a few fringe players just mentioned the major transfers . Also heard a lot about takeover to happen or has happened last friday. YNWA El Kidd
  It's Danny boy for United– from St Petersberg.

with ronaldo finally going to madrid man utd to sign valencia, david silva and ribery. as for the goals they will lose fergie now sees this as wayne rooneys time to shine and will put him up top with berbatov, with ribery and valencia on wings, fergie has known for a while ronaldo was off and has indentified them 3 as replacments . with hopefully hargreaves back and carrick in form don't expect and CM but if fergie thinks hargreaves can't give him to injury free season then expect a CM to come in.
thanks chris_e_chris
