Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.


Just saw Robinho entering Stamford bridge. NO idea how uch being payed but seems as though something might happen. I hope so.
  Aguero is all set to be the new no. 7 at Man United. Ronaldo will be leaving but nobody in exchange only cash. These will fuel the kitty for aguero who has a 35 million pound release Clause and go in for Ramos who ACTUALLY wants to move from Madrid.
The third forward saga continues at Man United as well
Berbatov may join but the problem is playing second fiddle to Rooney and Tevez so Huntelaar is more likely.
Ferguson, as documented, is fuming at Ronaldo's "loyalty" and now the fans have also shown their discontent by protesting at a recent friendly. Aguero being a perfect fit for pace and skill looks ready to fill the void

  A mate of mine knows Dougie Freedman who will not be signing for Leeds but will insted be going to Millwall to prevent having to move his family up North.

I also have it on good authority that Leeds Uniteds Peter Sweeney has impressed a number of clubs including Queens Park Rangers, Crystal Palace, Derby and Huddersfield with his performance against the reserve match at York. Queens Park Rangers are favourites to sign him after already tabling an offer for the winger.
  Blackburn will unviel their first signing next week segundo castillo and after his unvieling they will try and sign Jermain Pennant, emanual Eboue, antony annan, Michael bradley, Joaquin Sanchez and Simon vukcevic as Paul Ince looks to play more attacking football next season and the new defencive coach will try and improve our defencive record by spending time with the back 4 and the keeper.
with a couple of signings and more money made availible Blackburn look to improve more for next season and challenge in the transfer market with their Uefa place contenders like Tottenham Villa n Everton
  For all those who think Arteta is staying at Everton you are wrong. He is leaving I know because I know Michael Bradley from USNMT and he assures me Arteta is gone. His mate's Sacha Klejsten (Chivas USA) and John Raus (LKS lomza) are also coming to England to Charlton (January) and Gillingham. Trust me I know Bradley.
  I hear on half decent advice, groundsman at Upton Park who shares a beer or three with me down the local, true fact I add. that Luis boa morte + cash will be shipped off to olymPique Marseille as a make weight for D. Cisse, I for one do not want this to go through, Boa morte can go there but do not fancy Cisse.
  Sunderland will confirm the signing of Croatian forward Mladen Petric from Borussia Dortmund for £5.5 million on Friday morning. He was seen being shown round the Stadium of Light by club officials.
Ex–Spain international David Albelda will also sign a one–year loan deal from Valencia after falling out with the manager.

Franck Queudrue is considering a move to The Saints after being released by Birmingham City. The French man is expected to sign a four year deal in the next week.

Jan Poortvliet will give Chris Baird the chance to return to the South on a loan deal, Saints chairman Rupert Lowe is trying to convince Fulham to pay some of the defenders wages.

Mohamed Kallon will not be signing for Southampton. The deal has now gone quiet and saints have pulled out of the deal.

Jhon Viafara seems to be staying. The midfielder showed up for training on Monday. It is the first time Jhon has been in training since the holiday.

It looks like Kelvin Davis will complete his return to Ipswich town before the 25th July after Ipswich fail to get Richard Wright from the Hammers.

Rolando Zarate from FC Barcelona de Ecuador (Ecuador) – free – he is the brother of Mauro Zarate who was at Birmingham on loan last season
  Ronaldinho is not coming to Liverpool (AC), neither is eto'o, we haven't got that kind of money, but the Barry deal could go through, obviously as the second holding midfielder with Mash, I have friends in Spain who say the Spanish press are convinced David Silva will be coming to Anfield to play on the inside right, the only other biggish name will be Robbie Keane who will sign by the end of the week pushing Babbel for a place on the inside left. (Torres supported by a free role Gerrard) This totals around $40 million, the whole Alonso deal depends solely upon the barry deal, simple as. If this squad stays fit with the problems the top three seem to be having (Lampard/Drogba/new manager, Aderbayor/Kleb, Ronaldo) This maybe enough to put us 'very' close.

Good moves Rafa.
Kaunas are close to agreeing a deal to sign former Hibernian forward Eduardo Hurtado. The very experienced Ecuador forward will join in time for the clubs Champions League persuit. The forward who has played for over 20 different clubs is also expected to take on a coaching role at the club. His agent has told me his client is very excited at the prospect at joining Romanov's football empire.
  Celtic are poised to offer Watford £1.2 million for Danny Shittu in a deal which will include Darren O Dea going the other way on a season long loan.

Celtic are also interested in signing Darren Flethcher from Manchester although facing competition from Everton.
  My girl freind is from Milan and her brother works the Milan will sign Ronaldinho and will have his medical tommo and will sign contract until June 30 2011 also Hleb to be sining for barsa in the next few days
  I work within Sunderland Arsenal and can state Sunderland are on the verge or in the process of completing moves for the following players:
Dorin Goian £3.5 million
Lee naylor £2.5 million
Steed Malbranque £4 million
Stephen Hunt £5 million
Leroy Lita £5 million
Jonny Evans £5 million
  Scott Carson will be revealed as a Middlesbrough player on Monday 21st July.
  Got a mate in Spain who tells me storys coming out of their are:
Alonso is being linked with Arsenal, maybe if Barry goes their though to Liverpool

Joaquín (Valencia) will move to Tottenham
  Championship Newcomers Doncaster Rovers are lining up a season long loan move for Portsmouths young defender Martin crainie, only if the deal with young Manchester City defender Matt Mills falls through.

Also expect free agent Darren Byfield to sign for Doncaster aswell by Wednesday

Aslo a new keeper will join Doncaster from a league 2 club also a young player.
  I work closely with the Liverpool board, So anyway here it goes. To the person who said that a German has been staying at a hotel in Liverpool' It is not Podolski, It is German Youngster Marko Marin, he is an attacking midfielder and Rafa has opted to go for him because he will be much cheaper than the likes of David Silva and Queresma, Plus he should be easy to sign as Liverpool have a good relationship with his team Borussia Monchengladbach. I can also reveal that the Barry deal is very close to collapsing as Martin O Neil and Rafa cannot agree a price for the England international, if the Barry deal falls through expect Rafa to go for Spanish youngster Javi Martinez, Martinez is a central midfielder and Rafa has been watching him for two years know. This means that Alonso will unfortunatly be leaving Anfield in a possible move to Athletico Madrid, possibly as an offer for Argentinian Sergio Aguero, yes it is surprisingly Liverpool who have made an offer for the youngster, he will offer Alonso + £18 million. Thats all the news I have for know,.
  Theres a specific reason this Summer's trasfer window has been rather quiet. RONALDO.

Yes, portugals living, breething advert for hairgel has actually managed to affect the whole transfer market. The first problem is, even though by now Fergie probably hates Ronaldo, he would still welcome him back to the team if he pledged his future to United. If Ronaldo is n't sold, United will not buy Berbatov as Ronaldo is good for Goals, and they simply have not got the £25 million upfront, that Tottenham are after, floating around after last Summers splashing out.

If Ronaldo stays, Huntalaar maybe in there sights, as Ajax are willing to accept the £17.5 million in installments. However, Huntalaar is also a target for Mr Wenger. However, typical of Wenger he will not get drawn into a bidding war with United, and would prefer to go elsewhere.

AND., If Ronaldo goes, there is a good chance Adebeyor will be brought by Barcelona, as wheneevr one club makes a big signing, the other tends to to keep up in the popularity content they have. SO expect Adebeypr to leave in a £28 million deal.

Stan the gooner man
  Pavlyuchenko going to Liverpool in a swap + cash deal involving Voronin with Simon and nemeth going on loan.
Ronaldo to FC Barcelona not real guardiola has major funds available due to sale of Dos Santos, Deco and the Ronaldinho deal. also expect them to offer eto'o to Chelsea in a deal invovling Drogba and Malouda.
Sergio aguero is not going to Man U. they do not need him they have Rooney and Tevez for that position. man will make a bid for toni if the Berbatov deals colaspes.
expect Everton to sign as many cast offs as posible. Arteta wants Champions League football so will sign for asenal to replace Hleb.
Tottenham to sign a very expensive centre back dnt no who.

and can people stop playing football manager or fifa and saying there club is going to sign the players they did.

LFC Sonik
  LFC Rumours

Stevie G said he will watch the breaking news on SKY for LFC transfers. So if Stevie G does not know targets then how do people on this forum or are you all talking bull. Leave that to others to decide. It is beleived Rafa has £20 million + sales. Targets are Barry/Keane. If Alonso goes back to Spain then Silva is possible. Pennant will leave to Blackburn to replace Bentley and Rafa will probably target Milner/Downing/Riera.
Aguero will cost £30 million which is not possible unless a swap with Alonso and Laurel and Hardy cough up extra funds. Keep the faith.

  Roy Keane is eyeing a move for ex team mate and close friend Gary Neville on a year long loan. while United are planing a £20 million bid for Sergio Ramos. Tottenham have rejected Man Uniteds last offer for Berbatov so the devils will turn their attention to Serbian giant nikola Zigic who currently plays for financialy insecure Valencia.

Ronaldo is secretly planning to go visit the bernanbeau while on his rehabilitation course in "portugal" to hold contract talks which would come into action as soon as the bid of 70 million is accepted

i got these rumours from a newsreporter at one of Englands leading newspapers
  KK will raid the lower leagues and offer Reading £6 million for Shorey and Lita and Birmingham £10 million for McFadden and Larsson. He will bolster then look to bolster the backline by trying to get Cuellar from Rangers and bring back Aaron Hughes from Fulham as cover across the back four.
  Sources in Liverpool with strong ties to Everton FC have been approached to "Feel out" David Moyes about the possibility of becoming Ferguson's Number 2 with the view to take over when Sir Alex retires.

Could this be the reason behind the lack progress in new contract talks?
  Roma have made enquiries about Freddie Ljungberg
  At a news conference earlier today Leeds boss Gary McAllister said that Striker Tresor Kandal has been in talks with with championship club Bristol City after they are interest in him from last season Preformances. Also in League One Defender Bruno N'Gotty has said "I'm not glad I have come here to Leicester in June 2007 it was possible one of the mistakes of my career. I could have gone to a much bigger club such as Watford. "
  I firmly believe that Ronaldo is going absolutely nowhere. There is no evidence what so ever that a deal will ever go through. So there are no plans to replace him.

Reports are rife that Berbatov is edging closer to becoming a Man United player, this I do believe, however, Sergio Kun Aguero is a definite target. If Man United go public with that one, his price will rocket with a possible bidding war breaking out. Other than that, Man United are not aactively chasing anyone, but Man United are always scouting. Remember that. You will not hear about any other deal until it is a done deal.

Fergie will get his man, whoever it may be.
  Villa set to sign andrea D'Assandro this week to replace barry.
  It has been said that Cardiff Striker Thompson has been seen driving out of Cardiff training ground at speed. The media tried to get a word with Blue Birds boss Dave Jones and this is what he said "Steve had been lacking match fitness ready for the algarve cup and we strickly told him he needs to buch his ideas up. " We know now from what Jones said that Thompson must not of liked this and stormed out of training and made his way home.
