Rafa Benitez has sent scouts to brazil and is looking for promising talent, he is looking to bring in a young 18 year old Brazilian striker, Arnold from Corinthians if he can get a work permit. Barring trouble with the work permit - done deal

With 45 million to spend in the summer, Alan Curbishley is hoping to make Scott Parker, Wayne Bridge and Darren Bent his first signings.

From a relative of him Lee Carsley is moving to the Midlands possibly Birmingham (his hometown club)

Norwich Rumours: Norwich are closing in on Jon Ostemobor from Crewe and Danny Coyne from Burnley.

However, it is believe Coyne is wanted to replace departing Paul Gallacher as no. 2 keeper, not no. 1. Expect Gallacher to head back to Scotland.

Aston Villa makin a shock move for dejan stankovic, also got his eye on the likes of djibril Cisse, Paul mcshane, giles Barnes, Steve Sidwell, nrc, swp, Scott Parker, Wes Brown and John o shea, bright things ahead for the villa!

Some bizzare Manchester United rumours out there, lets get a few things straight.

The following, despite what numerous people have been saying will NOT be sold.

Dong- Annual Marketing Value in China alone is more than 10x his annual salary

Rossi- Has scored 10 goals for Parma since joining in Jnauary. Fergie has tipped him to replace Scholes at OT

Pique- Fergie travelled to Spain last week to tell him he will be a regular in the 16 next season.

Heinze- Done well in his first season back from injury, will continue to battle Evra for the left back position and is cover for the centre half position if needed.

Smith- proved he can play with the best this season, utility player in the forward positions.

Definately out this summer-

Saha- Fergie now ped off with the injuries, expect him to go to Lyon or PSG

Silvestre- no longer needed with Pique now in the 16- Expect Lyon to take him

Brown- SAF always lets players go at his age when he knows they will not be able to command a first team place- i.e. Phil Nevile. Newcastle looks to be his next move

Richardson- Just not god enough- Wil be off to the aggies if they come up.

Out on loan-

Kieron Lee - Sunderland

Cathcart- Watford

Ron Robert Zeiler- Sheffield Wednesdaynesday

Campbell- Birmingham

Gibson- NEC Neijemen

Players arriving- from-

Tevez, Huntelaar, Duscher (free transfer), Hargreaves (done deal), Scneijder, Nani (almost done deal), Moutinho, Bale.

Walsall Fc are in talks with Clube Desportivo Feirense over the possible transfer of striker Jorge Leitao

Plymouth Argyle rumours

The proposed deal to sign Peter halmosi for 400k now looks to be dead as the club are unable to meet his 6k per week wage demands, with halmosi not joining it also looks like kristian Timar will also turn down the chance to join. Whilst Akos buzsaky will put in a transfer request if his two countrymen do not sign, with Sheffield Wednesdaynesday or Norwich the probable destinations.

Tony Capaldi will join Stoke next week on a free with David Norris also signing for 300k.

Plymouth have also told told West Brom to increase their offer to 500k if they want defender marcel seip

Has anyone else heard about the 16 year old Brazilian wing backs we signed?

Manchester United may be spending as much as £100m in the summer and winter transfer markets! We won £50m from 1st place plus are owner may give us up to £50m.

Brazilian twin fullbacks - already done

Ribery - £15m

Mountinho - £10m

Deco - £10m

Eto'o - £30m

Tevez - £12m

£47 left over

Winter, Stadium, youth?

Paul Jewell could be offered the job at Manchester City whilst Chris Coleman is in the frame for the vacant managerial position at Wigan as is BRyan Robson and a surprise name being considered by Whelan is sacked Luton boss Mike Newell!


This is exclusive as I know the person that unveiled the mcsheffery deal 1 month before it happened. the deal was dome 1 moneth before we got him for reasons I will not disclose.

matt sadler is going out of brum due to falling out of favour with bruce, this may relate to a possible incident reqyuarding bruces closest family. this information may not be true reguarding the bruce rumour but he is going. This is not libellious and as I say only a rumour.

more l8r coming.


On very good authority (A close aide to Mandaric) I have been told that Hasselbaink is attending a medical at Leicester on Tuesday, and will almost certainly sign for them on Wednesday.

Also strongly suggested that Mandaric is meeting Stuart Pearce this week.


The players most likely to be on their way out are those who have not featured for the first team for the last few weeks, even though fit. Wenger said on the clubs website that Almunia would feature against Portsmouth, but his absence suggests that he is at odds with AW about his team role. It seems likely that he will leave with Fabianski his direct replacement. Flamini and Aliadiere have also been fit but left out of recent squads, with the former stating his ambition to leave for first team football, and the latter failing to impress AW. Baptista has not convinced AW of his abilty to adapt to the pace of the Premiership, while Arsene also said Ljungberg would partner him upfront at fratton park. His absence might suggest AW has lost faith in him but his future is less clear, while it seems that Reyes does not have a future at the club. Therefore, it can be anticipated that their might be 2 or 3 top class signings this summer to replace these outgoings, with Bendtner returning to challenge for the first team. Judging by the players AW has been scouting, it can be presumed that Arsenal are after a winger, and holding midfielder, and a defender. For wingers AW has been linked with Ribery, Babel, Malouda and Jimenez so maybe expect one of these to arrive to give much needed width to the team. The 3 main holding midfielders that AW has been keeping an eye on are Stephan Appiah (Fenerbahçe), Rio Antonio Mavuba (Bordeaux) and Jean II Makoun (Lille), so again - expect one of these to sign to replace Flamini. Finally, In defense Wenger has been repeatedly linked with Eric Abidal (Lyon) and Younes kaboul (Auxerre) with Ezequiel Garay (Racing) also a less lightly possibility. AW hasn't been linked with many strikers so he probably feels that Rosicky or Hleb can play secondary striker if needed. These seem the most plausable signings, compared to some of the fantasies flying around this site. Keep it real lads. Benny


INS: Tevez (Saha + 10 mil)

Foster (back from loan)

Rossi (back from loan)

Pique (back from loan)

a left winger (succesor to Giggs)

a centre midfielder (back-up)

a right back ( succesor to Neville)

OUTS: Silvestre (4 mil)

Richardson (4 mil)

Saha (Tevez + 10 mil)

Bardsley (permanent deal to villa)

Eagles (loan to Sunderland)

West ham will not be signing carlitos Tevez or any other English club he is looking for a move to a Spanish side.

West Ham done deal on Darren Bent ! with Harewood going other way.

West ham are also looking to sign a left back but who I do not no yet. probably Baines.

They is still a split decision on whether Mourinho is staying the player want him to continue all the work he has done were as the board are getting inpatient they want the champions league

possible Mourinho reps=

Guus Hiddink-good friends with abromvich

Frank rijkaard-good job at Barcelona wants new challenge

ronald koeman-has admitted he wants to work in England

louis van gaal-Peter kenyon has admitted he likes the way his teams play attacking football

but the favourite for the job is juande Ramos who is liked by a lot of the Chelsea fans players and staff and is said to learning English

Arsenal Rumours

Das I here what you are saying but I believe your source isn't that reliable. Firstly We won't be going for Eto'o because Wenger does not like bidding wars and we don't have that much money. Plus with Henry, V. Persie, Adebayor, Bendtnar and Walcott and Aliadiere we do not need another striker. Wenger instead will invest in Franck Ribery at 15M, Ryan Babel at 6M and a Defensive midfileder in the region of 10M.

This means The Arsenalnal squad for nest year will be:

Lehmann/ Almunia/ Fabianski/ Eboue/ Hoyte/ Toure/

Djourou/ Gallas/ Senderos/ Clichy/ Traore/ Ribery/

Hleb/ Fabregas/ Denilson/ Gilberto/ Diaby/ Rosicky/

Babel/ Henry/ V. Persie/ Adebayor/ Bendtnar/ Babel.

Any Comments? -BMAN-


Everton will keep MannyFernandes on loan and sign him next season when Carsley goes. We will also sign Joey Barton for 3m because Man City just want rid. Moyes is never going to spend 7-10m on Jenas. A new rumour is that while Moyes was in the USA in pre-season he made a deal with Kansas for Eddie Johnson 1m.

To the guy who said he was a close friend of Jermaine Defoe, he can't be that close you don't even know how to spell his name! But Judas will be rejoining the irons for £9.5m (Reo-Coker will not be involved, but Spurs will have 1st option) . Other Hammers rumours United will sign Carlitos for £27m, his love for the fans has swayed his decision. UEFA CUP NEXT SEASON

Leeds United are planning to raid newly promoted Hartlepool for Andy Monkhouse, James Brown and Michael Nelson. Wise is most confident of bringing Monkhouse who he has previously signed before during his short spell at Swindon. However, they will not be signing Dimitrios Konstantopoulos who will be signing for Fulham.

Hartlepool manager Danny Wilson is lining up 6 players, 4 of them will replace the 4 that are leaving.

Leeds are also battling to land the signature of Tommy Miller from Sunderland.

Chelsea won't go panic this summer, they already got sidewell, alex, Crespo (back for sure), will sell Lampard to Barcelona and get Deco and Zambrotta in exchange and might go for Quaresma if they sell SWP, players leaving for sure Geremi, khalid.

they will invest in youth they gor for Renato agusto, guzman


Zambrotta Terry Carvalho cole. a

Deco Essein Ballack Quaresma

Sheva Drogba

sub: Crespo, Robben, Mikel, alex, cole,

With West Ham staying in the premier league, look out for some major activity in the transfer market. Eggy has already stated our squad is too big, which it is and a number of players will leave; Carrol (500k), Newton, Paintsil (500k), Mears (600k), Konchesky (2m), Ferdinand (6m), Gabbidon (5m), Bowyer (500k), Quashie (500k), Etherington (1. 75m), Reo Coker (8m), Cole (1.5m), Harewood (3.5m), Kepa (loan end), Tevez (Madrid/ Barce), Sheringham (free) .

This mass clearout will provide approx 30mill as well as the money for wages plus getting rid of the 'bad eggs' at the same time.

AC will look to adopt Chelsea's policy of having 2 quality players in each position with some back up players incase of injury - and with some big signings, this is how the squad will line up:

GK: Green, Walker, Stech (back up)

RB: Neill, Spector

LB: Shorey (6m), McCartney

CB: Collins, Davenport

CB: Upson, Shittu (3m), Tomkins (Back up)

RM: Benayoun, SWP (9m)

LM: Kewell (1m), Boa Morte, (Reid as backup)

HM: Noble, Mullins, Dailly

CM: Parker (9m), Geremi (4m)

FW: Ashton, Zamora

FW: Bent (11m), Defoe (9m)

Thats approx 50mill spent, with 30m going out so only 20mill difference. Way under the budget that the club has. The spine of the team that has done so well in recent weeks will be there, with new players being added to help the Hammers push up the table.


Chris Coleman will go to MAN CTIY it would of been Paul Jewell but he doesn't want to manger a just yet.


Bernardo Corradi

Paul Dickov

Trevor Sinclair

Ousmane Dabo (kept Barton instead)


Luke Young

Hermann Hreidarsson

Darren Ambrose

Alexei Smertin

Tomasz Radzinski

Jay DeMerit

Hameur Bouazza

To the Sheffield Wednesdays fans who think they are signing Billy Sharp how deluded can you get he is Sheff United through and through you'll see that in his celebration after he bags a hattrick against you. the truth is he has signed for Liverpool for £2.5 million and we are getting him back on loan for next season.

Mourinho will tell Roman that he won't need much cash this summer and this will convinve Roman to let him stay.

Chelsea will sign the following:

Miguel (Ferreira+7mil)

Sidwell (free)

Alex (from loan)

Viduka (free)

Johnson (from loan)

Ben Haim (free)

Leaving will be:

Ferreira (swap)

Hedman (free)

Boulharouz (6mil)


GK: Cech Cudicini Hilario

LB: Cole Bridge

CB: Terry Carvalho Alex Ben Haim

RB: Miguel Johnson Geremi

LM: Robben Sinclair

CM: Lampard Ballack Essien Mikel Sidwell

RM: Cole SWP

ST: Drogba Shevchenko Kalou Viduka Sahar

Team: Cech/ miguel/ terry/ Carvalho/ cole/ cole/ Lampard/ MIKEL/ ESSIEN/ Robben/ DROGBA


The big four to share four! Penny for a good guess of the "share order": F. Torres, D. Villa, S. Eto'o, K. Huntelaar among the Premiership Big Four. Go!

Everton IN's

Sylvan Distin (FREE)

Leighton Baines (3-5m)

Steve Sidwell (FREE)

Joey Barton (cut price of 3m, but could raise to 5. 5 if the likes of Bolton etc. get involved)

Manuel Fernandes (season long loan)

Jermaine Jenas (5-7m)

Nuggent (4-6m)

Everton OUT's

Nuno Valente (nominal fee)

Gary Naysmith (1-2m)

Sandro Pistone (nominal fee)

Andy Van Der Meyde (2m)

possibly James McFadden (5m)

Howard/ Neville/ Yobo/ LeScott/ Baines/ Arteta/ Barton/ Jenas/ Fernandes/ Johnson/ Nuggent BENCH: Turner/ Distin/ Sidwell/ Osman/ Vaughan

Richard Wright and Alessandro Pistone.

Both Players could come to Leicester City this season. Petit to make sensational move to Leicester alongside Eastwood, Varney, Kieran Lee and Chris Eagles (Man U) Horsefield could move to City permantely after Sheffield United got relegated. Alan Stubbs and Dean Moxey (Exeter) to move to the Walkers with Coleman in charge. Iain Dowie isn't wanted by City and Ince has not got the experiance required.

Wolves will sign Billy Sharp from Scunthorpe in the summer, regardless of promotion. The deal will see Sharp link up with former strike partner Andy Keogh. The deal will involve cash plus players. Expected price of £1.5million plus Jemal Johnson, Denes Rosa and Micheal Oakes.

Man United Rumours


Saha - Lyon (10mil)

Heinze - Juventus (8mil)

Silvestre - Lyon (4mil)

Richardson - West Brom (4mil)

Rossi - Parma (loan)

Lee - Birmingham (loan)


Tevez (12mil)

Hargreaves (17mil)

Nani (17.5mil)

GudJohnsen (6mil)

Bale (8mil)

Evans (back from loan)

Pique (back from loan)

Sir Alex is going to bid £11 million pound for Barcelona midfielder Deco and he is also condidering putting in a bid for Inter Milans Adriano for £16 million

Right Liverpool supporters, I've got rumours for you but I don't know whether it is good or not!?

Joining Liverpool will be:

Pato (12mil) young Brazilian striker

Simao (6mil+Cisse) portuguese winger-both sides

Amauri (9mil) Brazilian striker

Lucas (8mil) HM DM CM CAM

Leto (2mil) Young tall argentinian winger

Jagielka (5mil) back up CD

Bouzannis (100k) Young U-16 aussie GK

Quite surprising, but no world-class players in there even with the £££. Lots of potential though-especially from the south americans. (+-42mil)

Leaving Liverpool will be:

Dudek (free) definitely abroad

Zenden (free) probably to PSV

Padelli (return loan)

Cisse (swap) to Benfica

Bellamy (8mil) villa, Blackburn or Newcastle

Carson (loan) see below

Paletta (loan) to championship

There will be a Clause in Carson's contract stating that he can be recalled at ANY time-if Reina was injured. Martin will be on the bench but won't play in any matches (as Carson can be recalled) (+-8mil)


GK: Reina (Carson) Martin Bouzzanis

LB: Riise Aurelio Insua

CB: Carragher Agger Jagielka Hyypia Hobbs

RB: Finnan Arbeloa

LM: Kewell Gonzalez Garcia Leto

CM: Gerrard Mascherano Sissoko Alonso Lucas

RM: Simao Pennant

ST: Kuyt Amauri Crouch Pato Voronin

Even with Lucas coming, Rafa won't get rid of any CM (except zenden) This will allow Lucas to settle properly and he may let one CM leave the following season. Hyypia will be allowed to leave if he wants but he wants to stay.

The only young players featuring next season will be Hobbs, (Carson), insua, Leto, Pato and Lucas because most of the others will go out on loan.

Rafa is not sure about Riise at LB so expect to see Aurelio feature a lot more.

The squad is massive but his fist team will probably look like this:

Reina/ Finnan/ Carragher/ Agger/ Aurelio/ Simao/ Gerrard/ Mascherano/ Kewell/ Kuyt/ amauri

Although signing 7 players, the first team won't be too different.

The major battling areas will be in LB, CM, RM

Many coming and goings at Hearts over the summer. players in to include Steven Naismith, Barry Robson, Steven Maclean and players out Craig Gordon, Edgaras Jankauskas and a shock move by Rangers for Cristophe Berra with Nevio Scala finally being named as new head coach

From randys mouth, bellemy is a done deal also kevin nolan is on o'Neils wish list

West Ham keeper James Walker seen having lunch in Birmingham with Walsall's Manager Richard money. Possible return to The saddlers ?

Paul jewell after will go to Manchester City to replace Stuart pearce

Liverpool will be busy this summer but no transfer budget has been given. The new owners are willing to back Rafa so will give him unlimited funds, although there is obviously a common sense limit in place.

Firstly, a centre back will be purchased for a nominal fee to replace the departing Hyypia and it is clear Paletta isn't yet ready and may never be so. Sylvan Distin will be a suprise target due to him being out of contract and having proven Premiership quality. Other than that the defense will be kept the same.

In midfield, Rafa is looking to add youth and flair for the future. He has already secured the services of Brazilian league footballer of the year in Lucas Leiva for 6 million from Gremio. The 20 year old was captain of the Brazilian under 20's and has since been called up to the senior side. He plays in a similar mould to Kaka, scoring plenty of goals but also his strength allows him to help out defensively. He will be slowly bedded in next season, given the odd substitute appearance.

Next, Rafa is hoping to secure Alexandre Pato before the Champions League final. A deal for around 8-12 million will be concluded for the 17 year old wonderkid, again from Brazil. He recently shone in the under 20 championships, registering 5 goals. Once again, he will slowly be bedded in despite his big price tag before replacing Luis Garcia in the team.

Finally the big name transfers will be completed. Dani Alves will finally sign for 10 million, providing extra cover at right back, but more importantly becomming the first choice right winger where we are lacking in options. A left winger is also required, but due to the high price of other transfers Simao and the like will not be signed unless a deal for Alves / Pato collapses.

Finally and most importantle a striker is needed. Rafa will buy one out of Eto'o, Villa, Tevez, Amariuo and Torres depending on the amount of money spent on other targets. Torres is looking the most likely. Voronin has already been signed as Fowlers replacement.

Departing: Fowler, Dudek, Bellamy,

Squad for next season:

Reina / Carson / Padelli

Finnan / Arbeloa

Carragher / Agger / Distin / Paletta

Riise / Aurelio / Insua

Alves / Pennant / Garcia

Gerrard / Pato / Leiva / Alonso / Mascherano / Sissoko

Kewell / Gonzalez

Torres / Crouch / Kuyt / Voronin

- Reina -

- Finnan - Carragher - Agger -

Alves - Riise

- Gerrard - Mascherano - Alonso -

- Torres - Kuyt -

However the likes of Arbeloa, Riise, Carragher, Alves, Gerrard, Garcia, Pato and Leiva are very versatile players so our squad depth will be fantastic.



Dean gerken-Colchester-1m (+walker)

nicky shorey-Reading-3m,

Nigel reo-choker-Everton-free,

Carlos Tevez-Real Madrid-15m.



After his scintillating performances of the last two months when he has been the stand-out player in the Premiership expect a full-scale, Europe wide auction for the services of Carlos Tevez. After finally settling into English football Tevez has shown Europe what South America has known for a couple of years now: quite simply that Tevez is one of the finest young talents in the world. Yet in comparison to most of his illustrious peers (Ronaldo, Messi, Fabregas etc) Tevez is readily available as he doesn't play for one of Europe's footballing elite.

AC Milan, Inter, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United are all interested and now it is just a case of who bids the most, and the players personal preference as to which country he will live in. Not knowing the man myself I can't say with any certainty where he will go but I wouldn't rule out a move to Juventus as they have cash to burn and will desperately need reinforcements. Also with Del Piero approaching the twilight of his career it would be prevalent for them to replace him soon and with similar class. Tevez fit's the bill perfectly.


Harry Redknapp wants to sign Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink on a free, as well as Robert Earnshaw from Norwich for around £4 million.

Redknapp may offload Lomana LuaLua this summer with Fulham interested in signing the DR Congo striker.



/ O- AFC / O-

Some slight ammendments to yesterday's post, which I may have forgotten or have recently learned:

- Carlos Vela will again be loaned out to the Spanish league to gain some first team experience. I have seen him in action and he could revolutionize the game in years to come.

- Wenger will not sign Darren Bent or Nigel Reo-Coker.

- Armand Traore will be loaned out until January. Wenger is now in the process of selecting a shortlist of candidates to cover Gael Clichy. I personally would not be surprised to see the Georgian defender Kaladze in his plans. He is a versatile player with much experience to help the assortment of youngsters at the club. Milan would let him go for a reasonable price.

- There is little chance Steve Sidwell be returning to the club.

- Kenyan youth prodigy Wambano Klein is currently being scouted after his eight goals in two matches following the beginning of the new K-League season.



All of the following will happen

-Birmingham city will sign - distin (Man City), Barton (Man City), Rossi (Man United) IF NOT Darius vassell (Man City), ridgewell, Jlloyd Samuel (Aston Villa) and Del Piero in January.

-Newcastle will sign-Viduka, Nolan and jenas will return.

- Stuart Pearce will return to manage in the Premiership for a midlands club at some point in the season! (ALL OF THESE ARE NEAR CERTAINTIES)

Swindon Town will announce there new sponsor this week after losing Nationwide. It is likely to be 'Farepak' hampers, on a 3 year deal, the company is going from strenght to strenght, and are in a good position to support the local football team.

Unlike alot of rumours on this site, this 1 is 100% true! : )

Totenham to go for Darren Bent as berbatov is moving to Liverpool. Simao to come in for a trade for Cisse permanent and gonzalez on season loan. Liverpool to buy someone as cover for Carragher and Agger as hypia is leaving. Liverpool also are chasing after gareth Bale in a deal trading insua plus 6 million for bale.

other big transfers: Chelsea to go for Tevez and Alves and might launch a shock bid for Deco

man u: havgreaves and a suprising move for Michael owen. they will also get David silva for around 20 mil

Ipsich to try and mount a serious promotion chase next term, looking to sign some quality players to give them a chance.

Jeffers (Free) Blackburn

Christie (Free) Middlesborough

Wright (Free) Everton

Killkenny (Free) Birmingham

Miller (Free) Sunderland

Barnett (1million) Luton

Lewis (500,000) Leeds

Ricketts (Free) Preston

Also look out for the up and coming young ipwich players such as

Garvan, Peters (Midfielders)

Supple (GoalKeeper)

Haynes, Clarke, Rhodes (Strikers)

I have it on very good authority that Rafa will be making an audacious bid for Eto'o after the CL final. Of course he is not willing to spend stupid money (40+ million) so there is a worry within Anfield that Chelsea or United might trump Liverpools bid.

Tevez is the backup option and he will be available much cheaper. Liverpool would be Tevez's destination of choice because he doesn't want to leave England and apparently he has heard good things from Mascherano.

Ipswich and Cardiff are both keen on released ex-Everton keeper Richard Wright.
