Football Rumours Archive June 15 2006


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

From a reliable radio pundit in Scotland (Chic Young)that Rangers are set to make in his words "a sensational signing which will astound everyone"(personally heard this on BBC Scotland on Saturday 3rd and again on the 10th of June). Rumours that it is a 30 year old striker playing presently in Spain. Could it be that it is Ronaldo!!

Manuel Villar Mir and ex-world rally champion Carlos Sainz have started setting up deals for when they win the july 2nd election. first off messi has said he will not go to real even if they pay the 150m euros to buy his contract. but reyes will sign in a swap deal for cassano and julio baptista. they will also try for cesc with a £24m bid. ruud is next on there list and they will pay manu £10m plus beckham. there biggest deal will be £45m for totti and expect a £10m for de rossi too. pirlo is also on there list and a bid of £33m is expected. zlatan is also a target for £21m as is cannavaro for £5.5m.

manu are set to meet the £12m cluse in owens contract when ruud leaves, saha is also set to move on to either lyon or marsellie. which will trigger an £8.5m bid suazo or martins. while SAF is set to go argentinian mad this summer with gabriel milito, mascherano, cambiasso, riquelme and tevez. while simao and ribery remain targets. kaka is set to be offered a new deal at milan and if he decides to leave real and manu will battle for him. expect none of the above deals to be done until after the wc.

charlton are set to lauch a £1.5m for viduka and SWP is set to stay in london and sign on loan for a year at the valley while craig moore is set to join for £250k. the sidwell deal is nearly done and anelka is set to join in a shock loan deal. davenport will also join in a deal worth £1.5m with £1m upfront. while bids for sodje (£800k), mcleod (£1.2m) and £3.8m for barton. a loan deal foe maxi is also in the pipeline.

Expect Tim Cahill to move to ManUre straight after the world cup! You can put your money on that one.....SAF must ensure he gets in quick because his WC performances will ensure he is hot property. Hoping the rumours of Trezeguet or Ibrahimovic coming to LFC are true!!! _______aussieLFCfan______________________________

I find a lot of these Arsenal "rumours" very very funny. Clearly you don't have any sort of link to the club and all your info is based on your daydreams. Arsenal have money to spend but its £35m after the rosicky transfer, not the ridiculous sums people are talking about. We just missed out on signing Kompany for £5.1m when he joined Hamburg last week. However we will sign Vanden Borre from Kompany's old club Anderlecht. We will also bring in Davies for around £5m. That will be the defence sorted. In midfield Mascherano is said to have agreed to join us for around £9m after Argentina get knocked out of the world cup. If this fails we will get Yaya Toure for £8m. I am also told that a deal is in the works for Van der Vaart of Hamburg. He will join for £6m. Lastly strikers, Athletico Madrid have no problem with us over Rosicky as they knew he wanted to join us. They are willing to enter talks with us over Torres expect a deal to be discussed for around £18m. If this falls through expect bid for Dahlberg (young Swedish Striker). Juventus players. We have first option on the 1st team squad due to the current Vieira situation (they can not afford to pay us the £10m they owe). Buffon is being eyed up for £5m + write of debt of Vieira. Treza and Ibrahimavic are also interesting targets. This is what my uncle who is on the board tells me at least.

The News From St Andrews is: Heskey will leave this summer with Celtic being the dark horse likely to capture his signing. It is expected that he will sign for around 5 million spread over various deals/payments. Pennant is also expected to leave and has been tempted by a big money offer from 'Appy 'Arry at Portsmouth. It's expeted that the deal will cost Portsmouth 4.75M up front with various add ons that could see the blues scoop 6.5 million for him if Harry makes it into Europe with Portsmouth!!!!

So with this new found wealth Birmingham will complete the signings of:

-Cameron Jerome - Cardiff - £3m - Already Complete

Neil Danns - Colchester - £600k

Stephen Kelly - Tottenham - Undisc.

Carlos Edwards - Luton - £500k

Calum Davenport - Tottenham - £1.1m

Eddie Johnson - Kansas City Wizards - £750k

Andrea Guatelli-Portsmouth-Part of Pennant deal

Kris Commons

Andy Reid

Matthew Kilgallon

Rossi - Season Long Loan

Danny Shittu

Also Birmingham are to poach the Bolton fittness staff and open a start of the art recovery centre in light of the injury list.

Holloway to be named as next Plymouth manager as Pulis is back at Stoke, QPR are set to make a bid for Adam Boyd as Waddock tries to strengthen his side, also a loan bid for B.Wright-Philips.


I told you about Ballack and Rosicky long ago,and I got new rumours from Germany for you.

Bayern placed a bid for RVN but Manu will not agree to let him go 4 10mil euros.Hamburg signed Kompany and won´t sell van der Vaart.They are looking for 2 Strikers,Adebayor, Klasnic and Pizzaro are possible names.

Liverpool will get Alves and Aimar ,and Cisse to join Lyon.

Chelsea will place a bid 4 Phillip Lahm (16mil euros) because R.Carlos is too old.

Manchester is going to sign Riquelme but he will be expensive (22mil euros).

Wenger and Mourinho will fight for the signing of N.Sahin (most talented midfielder in europe,age 17) but Dortmund will not accept any bids under 12mil euros.

I´m sorry guys but you will not see Kaka,Torres, Adriano or Ribery in the PL next year.

Real will spend a lot of money this year.Expect to see Emerson,Cannavaro,Ibrahimovic,Adriano and last but not least Kaka in the white galactico shirts.

Kaka will probably be the most expensive Transfer ever done (70-80mil Euros).

--- --- --- Rumours --- --- ---

Arsene Wenger will be going for Frank Ribery - 100% Sure. As for Forwards, He is Waiting on Torres & Juventus Status (If Relegated Trezeguet). If Torres Performs Poor in World Cup Except AW to Wait till January for a new striker.

As For Midfield With ribery & rosciky it will be fully built.

For Defence - AW is looking for more options particularly with Sol & Cygan's Exit. Except him to buy World Class CB with age around 20 to 24. And a young Talent CB.

With this Summer Transfer Closes for Arsenal.

Expect Arsenal to Spend Around 20 Mil this Summer Excluding Rosciky Transfer.

Everyone keeps linking Riquelme and Cambiaso with Man U and Adriano with Arsenal. the later are both in Inter's first eleven and Riquelme is a transfer target (villarreal want Materazzi) Do you really think a club like Inter would sell both Adriano and Cambiaso and let Riquelme just slip away? the only players who Inter are willing to let go so far have been Veron, Favali and Wome. Favail and Veron are both in their 30's and Wome didnt make the cut.

Inter's Targets this summer are

RVN (possible youth palyers + Cash switch)

Riquelme (materazzi + Cash)

F. Grosso (deal in the works)

L. Toni (unhappy at Fiorentina)

UTD will complete the signing of Fernando Torres from Athletico Madrid within the week for 25million, he will then form a formidable partnership with Rooney and Van Nistelrooy who will patch things up with Fergie. Michael Carrick will move from Spurs for about 15million and Riquelme will sign for 16million. this is a total of 56million but Mikael Sylvestre will be sold for around 4 million, Darren Fletc her will move on for around 3m, O'shea will go for 3m and Liam miller will join Watford for 2m

This will be the only money Fergie spends, so dnt expect a spree in the january transfer window.

Original targets Diarra and Masherano will move but not 2 united. Diarra will go to Real Madrid and Masherano would prefer a move abroad to Italy where Ac Milan are favourites to catch him.

Frank Ribery will move to Lyon as he doesnt have the potential to play in the Premiership

The player merry-go-round at Sheffield Wednesday continues with Paul Sturrock about to sell David Graham to Huddersfield or Doncaster.Chris Brunt will be sacrificed and will go to Spurs with Wednesday getting Andy Reid in part exchange with a cash payment as well.

He will also push to get Steve Howard from Luton, Yohann Folly from Southampton and Steve Hammell Motherwell's Scottish international left back.

There is apparently a very good chance that Portsmouth will be big spenders this summer. Pompey have already been linked with Jermain Defoe, Nicolas Anelka and Sol Campbell, and there's a decent chance those transfers could take place. Boss Harry Redknapp has been reportedly been given a big money warchest and is planning a spending spree. I'd expect Wigan striker Henri Camara to swap the JJB for Fratton Park, and I've also heard that Australian striker John Aloisi could be on his way back to the Premiership. I don't know for sure who they'll target, but I expect Harry to be busy once again this summer.

Juventus will not be relegated, but FINED a huge sum of money that will force them to clear out a few Players.

Arsene Wenger will NOT be accepting Patrick Vieira back but will be asking for either Buffon or Trez or even both depending how bad the money trouble is.

Manchester United is secretly plotting to sighn Timmy Cahill From Everton FC, also Liverpool are interested.

Remember lads this is a RUMOUR so dont go NUTZ!!!

i am a liverpool fan and would just like to state to all rumours about liverpool, that you all seem to think rafa has about 30mil 2 spend wen e actually has arond 15-20mil,so dnt expect any big names in till january.....expect alves and victor in, and garcia to go to arsenal or newcastle as e is no longa needed!!!!!


the rumours doing the rounds this morning in the uk of a proposed transfer of FERNANDO TORRES to Man Utd have some validation....SAF has made it clear to Atletico that he wants to build a strong relationship with they did with sporting during Ronaldo's transfer.Expect some player exchange in the deal(NOT RVN,BUT MAYBE ROSSI ON LOAN) but news is that it MAY be a 22M deal structured over 3 years.

IF it does happen UTD will not sign a winger...but just a couple of midfielders. Riquelme is almost acertainty ..this you can count on.

CARRICK may follow but there still might be room for GATTUSO's arrival via part exchange with RVN.

LFC supporters get ready to welcome the likes of Mark Gonzalez(deal done), Aimar, Kuyt, Guily. SWP is not coming as chelsea can not sell to a rival club. You heard it from me...............


Liverpool will not let cisse's leg break compromise their transfer plans as they need to compete with the big spending of Chelsea and United!! Expect Liverpool to complete the deals of Palletta, Aurelio, Gonzales, as expected, Liverpool will also sign Alves for 8m after he stated he wanted to go to Liverpool, Pennant will also sign for 3.5m but Camaronesi may also sign for 5m depending on Juventus situation with Serie B, Liverpool will also sign Aimar 5m and look for a replacment for Didi Hamman, Xabi Prieto from Socidead could be on his way for 3m. Liverpool will also sign Saviola on loan to replace the injured Cisse and Bellamy for 6m!!





Spurs ins





Yaya Toure

Ben Arfa








Spanish reports today suggest Mauro German Camoranesi will complete a £5.5 million move to Liverpool. The deal will mean that Jermaine Pennant doesn't move to Liverpool and instead the 28 year old Italy squad member will join up with Liverpool on July 11th. It may not be Ibrahimovic who is likely to sign with the Reds, as apparently Benitez is more interested in David Trezeguet who would cost around £10 million. He will also sign 1 more striker and that could be either Dirk Kuyt or Klass Jan Huntelaar or Craig Bellamy


(in order of move)

- Mauro German Camoranesi - £5.5m - Juventus

- Daniel Alves - £10m - Sevilla

- Craig Bellamy - £6m - Blackburn

- David Trezeguet - £10m - Juventus


I have a very strong link in arsenal and i know for a fact that they are goin to sign torres for 19.5 mil and yaya toure for about 9 mil and after that they are after gago 1 mil and curtis davies 9mil and depending on how much they have left they might put in a bid for ribery (but this is very unlikely) all the talk about adriano is rubbish and if the


PLG targets - Jeremy Clement £1M, Lionel Letizi Free, Andy Webster £500K, Scott Brown £1.8M, Craig Gordan(january) £2.5M, Johan Elmander £1M, James MacFadden £600K.

OUTS - Stefan Klos (January), Fernando Ricksen, Alan Macgreggor, Nacho Novo, Bob Malcolm, Piere Fan-Fan, Breham Hemandi


United will be very active in this summers transfer market as they glazers are set to invest big in the squad


JAVIER MASCHERANO (£8m) signed to play the holding role in midfield

FERNANDO TORRES (£24.5m) SAF keen admirer and currently in talks w/ Atletico

SIMAO SABROSA (£13m) Man u set to move for him after Ribery rejects Utd.

RAFINHA (£4m) Very young and highly rated Brazil right back. Cover 4 neville





MILLER (£2m)


ROSSI (Loan)

O’SHEA (£4m)

----VAN NISTELROOY WILL NOT BE SOLD, Sir Alex has recently held talks with Ruud over his future and still sees him as an important first team player.

1st team next season

------------------------Van der Sar-----------------------



------C. Ronaldo-----------------------Simao------------


------------V. Nistelrooy-----Torres---------------------

----subs: Smith, Saha, J.S.Park, Rafinha, Fletcher, Brown, Evra, Scholes, Richardson

Sheffield United to sign Nicky Butt and Mikeal Forssell.












AC Milan will sign Luca Toni for €24million from Fiorentina to partner fellow Italian Gilardino.

Arsenal won't sign anymore strikers, they got 7!! Instead a centre back will be needed. It's gonna be phillipe mexes for 5mil.

gk:- lehmann, rb:- eboue, cb:- toure,mexes lb:- ashley cole, rm:- rosicky , cm:- fabregas, gilberto, lm:- reyes, ST:- Henry, v.persie/adebayor

Everton have now completed thye signing of Joleen Lescott, and of course Andy Johnson taking everton's spending total to 13.3mill, however a lot of this money depends only on appearances so spending is actually only around 9mill so Everton's spending will not stop there with Steed Malbranque hopefully moving to Goodison for 4m and Benni McCarthy in a swap deal with AVDM, Everton may also buy a centre midfielder possibly Barton depending on his situation at Man City and contract negoations!!





BENCH:Turner,Stubbs,McCarthy,McFadden,Viadarson(youth player)

Alves deal should b signed and sealed by the weekend,but with Rafa & Parry refusing to pay £12m it could drag on. Srna,Aimar,Pennant,Kuyt, Bent are all other targets, but Rafa loves Aimar style so expect the deal to b pushed through as more cover 4 right wing. Bellamy appears to b the most obvious striker to b signed as Martins is in the £10m bracket. shawrientes

With tottenham rejecting man u's 10 mil bid for carrick man u will sign everton star tim cahill for somewhere around 8 million pounds.

Neil Danns in negotiations with Coventry City over £500,000 move, according to one of the backroom staff at Colchester, also interest from Birmingham City and West Brom.



My uncle is a junior scout for Arsenal, HE HAS BEEN SUCESSFULL IN LOCATING YOUNG TALENT such as Fabrice Muamba, Jay Simpson etc. He has informed me that Wenger wants to add to his midfield and possibly to his backline.Wenger wants another winger, defensive midfielder and attacking midfielder.Amongst his targets are Frank Ribery,Yaya Toure,Javier Mascherno,Fernando Gago,Raphael Van Der Vaart and Baptista. Curtis Davies will be a gunner with Ribery,Mascherno and Van Der Vaart joining him.

I hope you take this with a pinch of salt

Rafa Benitez could smash out an £18 million record fee for Valenica's La Liga hotshot David Villa. Benitez is watching him closely at the World Cup and his goals impressed the Liverpool manager hugely today!

Manchester City have no budget to spend.. but they are signing Samir Nasri of Marseille on a season loan, very likely.

They will also sign Steed Malbranqe, Helder Postiga (possibly loan) and danny murphy 2million. dont forget they have Micah Richards,possibly the best youngster in the premiership!

hahahahahahahahahahahahaha, the spurs fan that said joe cole will join them, try carlton cole, spurs arnt good or big enough for joe cole to join,

and the everton fans that are saying malbranque will solve your left sided problems, you'll probably get him, but i could count on one finger the amount of times steed played on the left wing, he's a right footed right mid or centre mid,

arsenal 95million to spend? come on, surley its more like 25m at the most.

Fulham to sign lua lua to replace steed and matty taylor to replace bridge.

arsenal will sign zigic and a new centre back,

man utd will get carrick and riquelme,

chelsea will sign andrade and carlos,

tottenham will sign everyone available according to the rumours,(they'll probably get 2 unheard off players)

liverpool will probably sign pennant, you have to ask yourself why liverpool fans are excited about this though, just been relegated and now joining a club in the champions league, he's not even that good, mind you he's better than garcia and sissoko

aston villa just james milner

newcastle are a better club than everton and will sign kuyt, 2 new centre backs and another left winger

west ham will sign luke young

charlton will probably get relegated with sheff utd and watford,

neil warnock will be sacked by christmas,

gutted for watford, but i cant see them staying up, they should keep boothroyd what ever happens though,


Steve Finnan is 30,not 31. Gudjohnson to Barcelona for 8 million. Moneybags(you know who) have made a 10 million bid for Phillip Lahm. Sevilla will compromise over a transfer fee with Liverpool for Daniel Alves, around 9 million will get him. Unsure about the situation regarding the striker we need. Liverpool have made a bid of 8 million for Javier Saviola, that's all I know, but it's true. Pablo Aimar cannot be 'forced' out of Valencia. Don't forget if Valencia accept an offer for him other than one from Liverpool, he can simply reject the contract offer until either he's sold to Liverpool or he leaves for free in the Bosman ruling. There is only one place for Aimar, Liverpool, with his best ever mentor, Rafael Benitez. That's all the information for now. Mr Realism


Outs: Butt/Milner/Faye/Chopra/Boumsong/Bowyer/Carr/Harper (Krul will be 2nd choice keeper)

Ins: Steed M/Kuyt/SWP (Loan) and a couple more players.

GR said three main players are on top of his list for the summer and will sign a few more players. FS will give GR the all clean to bring these players to St James's Park. With Chopra gone to Cardiff GR needs a striker that will work well with owen (Luque is not settled and Ameobi is not everyone's savior) According to many rumours around Newcastle Ronaldo seems to be the No.1 choice since we have good connections with R Madrid and Owen has also played with Ronaldo and made a great strike force. About SWP who is linked with nearly every Premiership club, Scott Parker will try and preswade SWP to come to Newcastle.

Scott Brown will sign for Rangers within the next three weeks for around £1.5M - £2M

With sale of g.naysmith and, moye will look to replace them both with the signing of d.traore for 1.5-2 mill who can play both at lb and cb after he impressed moyes when he was a trial at the club

Arsenal will sign F. Torres After the world cup to partner Henry and they wiil also sign micah richards and curties davies to add to the ranks of youth talent.

Sheffield United will still sign lee Hendrie, and mikael forssell, I said claude davis would join them for 2.5m and I was right, hendrie and forssell may well join soon. One player united wont be signing is graham branch, he has snubbed a move to bramall lane and wants to finish his career at burnley. nh

Nigel Worthington is lining up a surprise bid for Polish striker Kornel Kiwerski. Currently playing for Polonia Warsaw, Kornel is a 6.2 centre forward in the mould of Emile Heskey. He should be available for a minimum sum

defoe will not be goin to upton park this summer. pards would not waste all his funds on just one player. besides defoe already has his eyes on liverpool. however expect luke young to come this week and other players such as arca, upson and duscher

MAN UTD: -Carrick is very close in signing for 15 mil.

-Torres will sign for 25 mil. very soon

-Ribery is lost to lyon

-Mascherano will not sign and will go to Italy

-Riquelme will sign for close to 20 mil after the WC

-Diarra is a 50/50 in signing for 24 mil

-Ruud or Saha will be sold to make room for torres

-Fletcher, O'shea, and smith will be sold

arsenal are watching torrers, ibrahimovic fernando gago. more likely arsenal want torrers but some others target have been watched.


Carlos Tevez will join Real Madrid after the World Cup. The 21 year old Argentinean has agreed personal terms and all that is left is signing of contracts. He will partner Robinho up front in the coming years when Raul retires and when Ronaldo moves on. It seems The Galacticos have finally woken up to the fact that you've got to buy young players and blood them through, having signed both Sergio Ramos and Cicinho in the last year, along with Robinho. Tevez will have to polish up his act however. After his controversial move from Boca to Corinthians two years ago he has been fined several times by Club officials for various offences, including sporting Manchester united, Barcelona and Juventus shirts on seperate occasions giving interviews for the club's Television station.

west-hams benhiene is rumerd to be going to celtic has anyone els herd this

portsmouth are 2 sing shaun wright philips on loan and also capture deals for amdy faye jermaine defoe and yakubu


Frank Ribery will sign for Man utd for an initail fee of 12mil + obvious clauses such as how well he and man utd perform over the upcoming years. this deal has materialised as arsenal have been unwilling to make an offer for the player and Marseille have said that they won't be selling him to Lyon. other than that man utd will not be making the big signing's expected. Diarra may be recalled for more negotiations as tottenham seem unwilling to sell carrick. as a Man utd fan i would like to see neither of these players to join and for us to turn our attentions to Daniele De Rossi from Roma. i believe a bid in the region of 10 - 12 mil should be enough to secure his services. We will then need to sign another centre mid or left mid depending on where Ribery plays. i think we should sign another defence minded player and play ribery on the left with a license to wander, very much like ronaldo at the moment. i think this player could be mascherano as he is very disipline and sits well in front of the back four. i think this is an excellent partner for De rossi who is very much like lampard and like to get forward into the box. of course with Man u's budget and the likely cost of all these player's either Ruud or Saha may have to be sold; and unfortunately it seems like it may be the great duthman who leaves with bayern munich now declaing an interst. So fregie if ur reading this, what are you waiting for! Manu team nxt season:

Van Der Sar

hi all. SAF looking at germany v poland game and is keen on klose (as he is seen as the best 'in the box' striker other than RVN) also schweinsteiger (although i personally dont think this will happen) and boruc as possible EvDS back-up. Ribery transfer will not happen as too expensive, same applies for Carrick. expect possibly Klose (8m), Sneijder (7.5m) and Appiah (5m). Juve will be cleared of match fixing so none of their stars available cheaply!!!!! MUFC DOWNSIE_53

!!!!!!!ARSENAL NEWS!!!!!!! Expect to see Buffon at the emirates next season as Jens Lehmann prepares for retirement at the end of next season. Curtis Davies and Yaya Toure to both sign as well. No frank ribery as his club are very angry with the issue regarding flamini. Maybe Torres but it doesnt look promising and no Adriano. But there is always next January! Macca

efc news everton will sign fulham pair luis boa morte and steed malbranque after wc

can i just say, that pablo cesar aimar isnt a striker, he plays as a link up between midfield and attack. so, with a likely move to liverpool, he will play behind kuijt and bellamy/martins. benitez will play a 4-3-1-2 formation. he will also sign darijo srna or joaquin or alves for the right wing. aurelio, gonzalez and paletta are definatley coming in aswell

everton are set to sign luis boa morte after wc with everton flop simon davies moving back to london also steed malbranque is a target oh ya

everton is a much bigger club than newcastle come on you blues!

Premiership new boys Watford are in the hunt for Plymouth Argyle Star Akos Buszaky. The Hornets hope to have him snapped up in time for there first Premiership Game of the season (Though to be at home against Arsenal)
