Manchester United
Berbatov will possibly be swapped for Edin Dzeko plus £15m over two years from VfL Wolfsburg

Antonio Valencia will come in for £18m
Ashley Young will come in for £25m
Marcos Senna will come in for £9m

Daniele De Rossi, Samuel Eto'o and Arjen Robben are the final big players with a question mark hanging over them

Karim Benzema deal will not go ahead
Franck Ribery deal will not go ahead
Alexis Sanchez deal looks increasingly unlikely

David Villa and Fernando Torres rumours are complete nonsense.

  Celtic Rumours
Just heard throught the grapevine that the deal to bring Steven Fletcher to Celtic will be announced 24 hours after the appointment of Tony Mowbray. Also heard that Celtic are after 4 players from Eastern Europe and a couple form England the names I have so far are,
Ansaldi – Rubin (Russia) Left Back/Left Winger
Robert Lewandowski – Lech(Poland) Centre Back
Lucas Biglia – Anderlecht – Centre Midfield
Mariusz Lewandowski – Shakhtar–Attacking Midfield
and From England
Barton – Newcastle United (do we really need him?)
Parker – West Ham.

There will also be a significant number of players heading out the exit door. The signings above however clearly show the intent of Mowbray to build a slick attacking team for the futute.
These come from a source working at a magor Glasgow newspaper and he has been pretty reliable in the past.

Cheers P
  Bumped into Louis Saha in the Trafford Centre.
He fell over.
Out for 6 months now apparently.

  Tony Mowbray has spent the last couple of weeks assessing the Celtic squad, and through a friend I can reveal, that several players will leave and only a few will come in, as Tony thinks there is a lot of talent in the reserves such as Ferry and Hutchinson who are ready to come in.

Bobo – End of contract
Naka – Free – Espanyol
Hartley – Free – Hearts or Ipswich
Doumbe – End of Contract
Vannegoor Of Hessilink – Free – Twente
Mark Brown – End of Contract

Funds will also be raised from the sales of a couple of the following:
Lee Naylor, John Kennedy and Possibly Stephen McManus (depending on interest)

Mowbray will attempt to keep the highest valued players, Boruc, McGeady and Scott Brown, but Boruc may force his hand to go.

Mowbray has watched and is interested in the following players:
Simon Cox – Swindon
James McCarthy – Hamilton
And Steven Fletcher – Hibs

He will also run the rule over a few players recommended by John Parks – Namely Roland Garcilue, Xabi Castillo, Anis Sharbini & Lech Poznan Duo Semir Stillic and Robert Lewandoski.
  Fergie to surprise everyone and sign Everton and Spain International Mikel Arteta for the right wing and Ashley Young for he left plus the most vital signing of Daniel De Rossi (midfield) who will move to the Premier League Champions. Remember this comment on the day its announced.

Fergie to announce his retiremnet after 2010 World Cup, Jose Mourinho or Martin O' Neil will be his successor (nobody else). . Rafa will leave for due to pressure at Anfield.
Whichever manager lands at Old Trafford out of those two candidates, the other will manage Liverpool.
  My cousin has connexions at Anfield and is always right and has told me that Liverpool will shortly announce twin signings of Ricardo Quaresma and Joaquin Sanchez at 15 millions Euros apiece. The wing issues are resolved!
  It's confirmed. Glen Johnson is moving to Liverpool. A realtor friend was instructed to source for accommodation for the said player. You heard it here first!
  With Tony Mowbray being officially confirmed as Celtic manager this week, he is moving fast in the transfer market as his targets have already been sought out. James Morrison £3m, James McCarthy £1m, Steven Fletcher £2.5m and suprisingly Derek Riordan £1m. Scott McDonald will be sold as Mowbray hates slow fat strikers and he will look to offload at least Samaras, Donati, Flood and Naylor to join Balde (Birmingham), Hartley (Hearts) and big Vinegar. Chris Killen will be given a chance as will Ben Huchison and Paddy McCourt. Rangers fans will be delighted with Billy Mehmet being their biggest summer signing for 500k.
  Accrington Stanley are in talks with David Fish, owner of United Biscuits, over a shock takeover of the cash strapped club. It is believed to be worth £10million with a further 5–10million invested into the transfer kitty and long term progression. A period of exclusivity is expected to be reached this week.
  Liverpool will sign 3 players for the first team squad and then a few youngsters:

Glen Johnson (14.5mil rising to 17mil)
Micah Richards (5.5mil)
David Silva (17.5mil rising to 19mil)

Oscar Sielva (1.5mil)
Jesus Fernandez (200k)

Leaving will get the following off their books, which will provide moeny for transfers and also clear up the wage bill a lot:

Andrea Dossena (6mil)
Philip Degen (1.1mil)
Nabil El Zhar (950kmil)
Andriy Voronin (4mil)
Sebastian Leto (3mil)
Paul Anderson (900k)
Jack Hobbs (750k) SOLD Leicester City
Jordy Brouwer (300k)
Jermaine Pennant (free)
Sami Hyypia (free) CONFIRMED Bayern Leverkusen

Also, players going out on loan will be:
Kelly, Hamill & Flora (Middlesborough)
Kristzian Nemeth (probably in spain)
Damien Plessis (possibly Newcastle)
David Martin & Stephen Darby (somewhere in the championship)

David N'gog is going nowhere.
  Tevez to sign for Man city in the next few days! deal already agreed with a wage of around £140,000 a week! eto'o will the follow for £25 mil and similar wages! Santa cruz will not join city as he will be unable to pass the medical due to his knee problems! bet big sam wishes he took £18 mil in jan now!
City to sign at least 2 defenders 2 striker, expect to see toure and lescott joining soon with rihards goin to arsenal and dunne off to celtic or spurs for £6 mil. .
Man utd will struggle to find a replacement for ronaldo due to other clubs (mainly real madrid) joining in bidding for them! with utd unable to compete financially!

  Re Ashley Young.

I just wanted to reconfirm the supporting status of Ashley Young. He is an Arsenal Supporter and always has been. This doesn't mean he will be leaving Aston Villa by any means.

So, to reiterate – Ashley Young grew up in Stevenage as an Arsenal fan.

  Celtic rumours.

with TM coming in at celtic this week he will be given 10 million to spend this summer, plus what he gets from selling players.

players out

VOH – out of contract
donati – 1.5 million
naylor – 1 million
hartly – out of contract
bug sammy – 4 – 5 million

players in

Castillo 1.5 million
Robinson 1.5 million
Fortune 2.5 million
martins 3 million

and 4 others coming before end of transfer window.
  Liverpool have decided they only want to sign two players this summer. They want a left winger/midfielder and a right back. Rafa's top targets for a right back are Glen Johnson for £16.5m, Darijo Srna for £13m and Rafinha for £7.5m. His top targets for a left winger are David Silva for £22.5m, Ashley Young for £17m and Michel Bastos for £9m.Dossena will join Juventus for £7m. Voronin will join Wolfsburg for 4m. Lucas will join Atletico Madrid for 7m

Man utd are interested in signing David Villa for a ENGLISH TRANSFER RECORD of £45m. Fergie has also tied up a deal for Antonio Valencia for £23m. His last target is Victor Valdes and is willing to pay £22m for the Spanish Keeper.Dodo and Douglas Costa will be their Brazillian imports for the summer for £20m.Tevez will go to Chelsea for £28m and Ronaldo is obviously going to Madrid.

Chelsea boss Ancelotti wants to rid of most of the Portuguese contingent at the Blues. Ricardo Carvalho and Deco are going to be part of a deal that takes Maicon to Chelsea from Inter in a £15m plus Carvalho and Deco. Yuri Zhrikov is finally going to go to Chelsea for £18m. Carlos Tevez will also join Chelsea in a deal worth £28m. Moussa Dembele will also join the Blues for £14.5m
Don't think I can take anymore stupid lies about who's going where and who's seen Carlos Tevez in their local co–op!
I'm going to post some actual rumours (you know those things that are said amongst people who have heard something from somebody and end up spreading across the city/country – not just my dreamteam wishlist for next season!)
LFC RUMOURS – sorry no suprises here –
Liverpool have made a bid for Glen Johnson though to be about £18m (but Portsmouth still owe them money from Crouch deal) Rafa is hoping Johnson will choose the reds over the likes of Chelsea and City as this will show his desire to play for the club – an important part of rafa's recruitment policy.
Liverpool have also made a £6m bid for Alvaro Negredo though there is some concern that Real Madrid will not do business with Liverpool if they refuse to sell them Xabi Alonso (who is not for sale along with Mascherano) Rafa sees Negredo as an ideal striker to play alongside or in absence of Torres but is still young enough to develop and would not expect to start every game.
Liverpool are also making a bid for Carlos Tevez (on Monday or Tuesday this week) when they speak to his representatives – whilst they may be priced out by other clubs Rafa is hoping that Tevez will show a desire to achieve more success rather than taking the money at City and will be hoping the fact that Mascherano is at Anfield this may swing his vote – if not then again it will be for the best as Rafa will not want any player who is not fully dedicated to the cause.
That's it I'm afraid – Rafa is only after a striker or someone who can play in an attacking role and a right back. We will only make other signings if we are forced to sell (this will only happen if the right bids come in for Babel, Lucas or Dossena) only then will replacements be sought as Rafa wants to keep the squad together as much as possible.
Ipswich have enquired about taking David Ngog on loan for the next season but Rafa will wait until a striker has been purchased before making his decision.
Other rumours going around the city at the moment are that Everton will try to tempt Micheal Owen to Goodison making him their highest paid player but Owen's prefered destination is Manchester City or Aston Villa. Another one is that Manchester United will try to sign David Villa and offload Berbatov but I think we all know that Villa will stay in Spain and sign for Barca or Real.
  SUNDERLAND – Micah Richards (Man City)
  Red report
Rafa is will not sell Alonso unless a crazy bid of 50 million plus is made which is unllikely
however Rafa is said to be more flexible on Mascharano and may let him go if a bid above 25 million is made
Eto'o was according to reports in spain being offered as part of the deal but Rafa is trying to get Bojan in as Torres speaks highly of the youngster
Rafa is lining up a 16 million bid for Miguel Veloso as his replacement and also a bid for Bayern Ler.'s Vidal as backup
After watchin Spain play Rafa is detrmined to Get the Silva deal done as he was more than impressed with his ability to pass aswell as dribble in his little Cameo.
Rafa was also impressed with Riera and Arbeolas performances and is willing to give them another season each as he did with Xabi.
Lastly Adam Johnson could be Liverpools first summer signing if no complications arise while Liverpool have inquired about west hams Mark Noble and CB tomkins to boost their English players.
  For the loser whos uncle works in ross hall hospital. This is where septic players go for their medicals, Rangers have a 14 million pound complex that has a medical room.

  Ok here’s the real news on the gunners transfer front:
Firstly the Vermaelen transfer has been completed; this will be announced later this week.
With regard to Sakho, he will also sign over the next or so, his agent has said he’s not leaving in an effort to get Wenger to up his bid.
Wenger is still chasing Hangeland for roughly 9 million.
He will hijack if you believe the papers 2 deals, Veloso to Bolton (don’t make me laugh) and the apparent bid from spurs for Huntelaar. The Veloso deal will go through if he doesn’t sign a holding midfielder in the shape of either Yaya or Inler. Huntelaar will sign for arsenal over spurs for two reasons, Wenger has chased him for nearly 3 years and van Persie plays for us, plus we can offer him champions league football. Just depends on how much spurs offer Madrid.
The two signings that I'm more excited about are Eden Hazard and Yohann Cabaye both from Lille. These will be completed just before the transfer deadline.

Good time ahead.
  To the spurs fan re: ashley young yes your correct
ashley is a spurs fan. But sorry no he won't be going to spurs. Like most footballers he wants champs. league so with chelsea poised to bid £30 mill + that looks most likly move for him. All this speculation blew up because martin o neil is a admirer of jenus .For confirmation ask harry redknapp.
  Breaking Ronaldo news!!

He will not be signing for Madrid he will sign for spurs!!

he said he would feel more at home because their strikers are keane and bent

Well it made me laugh :D
  Just a few rumours I've heard from a few clubs:

1. Young Jack Wilshre from Arsenal will be going on a season long loan to Newcastle to gain first team experience and will be ready for the Arsenal first team after returning. 100%

2. Glen Johnson of Portsmouth will be joining Liverpool for a fee of around £14 million. This will be concluded this week. 80%

3. Xabi Alnoso and Javier Mascherano will not be leaving Liverpool this summer. Both players will confirm this within the next 2 weeks. 100%

4. Antonia Valecia will join Manchester United for £18 million within the next 2 weeks. 90%

Expect a number of Liverpool and Manchester Utd youngsters to be loaned to us in the next couple of seasons. This is for 2 reasons Milan Mandaric is hoping to sell the club in the next couple of years so doesn't want to waste money signing players on long contracts and also Both Manchester Utd and Liverpool were impressed in the way we treated players such as Cleverley and Hobbs. Also the Cox transfer isn't going to happen! but the Wellens one is probable with DJ Cambell going the other way as part of the deal. Clemence and Tunchev will also be fit for the start of pre–season.

My brother works for SMPR consultants who do some of the Far East marketing for the club, and they've been given the heads up that LFC have tied up 2 deals already but have been told to release the info in conjunction with the press releases about the financial restructuring at the club (early July announcement apparently)

Those 2 players are Johnson and Aguero

At this time the club believe Alonso will be staying, and should be used in marketing pics for the Far East tour the club are going on this summer, but have lined up a replacement midfielder and a young brazilian if Xabi does decide he wants to leave

  City have offered Micah Richards to Liverpool for £8 Million with Jo on a years loan. The offer is aimed at persuading Liverpool to drop their interest in Glen Johnson clearing the way for City. I personally think that would be a great deal for both clubs. I think Rafa will be able to get the best out of Richards and get some discipline in his play. Jo would be great backup for Torres and even a good partner too. Fingers crossed.





  Capdevilia is being tracked by Blackburn boss Sam Alladyce. He thinks his crossing abiity would be ideal for Santa Cruz and would be a great influence on Stephen Warnock. The only stumbling block would be that he could cost nearly £5 million. Meanwhile Bolton are back on the very ambitious trail of trying to sign miguel Veloso from Sporting Lisbon. Not quite sure how they plan to pull that one off.

  Fulham are gonna spend most of their transfer budget on bringing Matt Taylor down south. It is beleived a bid of £8 million would be enough to prise Boltons best player away. Fulham also hope to conclude a straight swap with middlesboro between Simon Davies and Gary O'Neil.
  I have just saw Kris Boyd and Stwven Davis at Ewood Park and also can confirm that Craig Bellamy is going to Celtic and i can also confirm that Filip Sebo is going back to Rangers as I have a close source with the 2 old firm clubs.

moutinho to everton (around 8–12 mil)
rod fanni to everton or west ham (around 5 mil)

ribery will not be goin to united !
benzema will not leave, but is a good chance he might next season
unless madrid table a bid ashley young will stay at villa
sakho to arsnel (arround 6–9 mil)
johnson to liverpool (around 15 mil) if this fails he could be goin to chelsea and then liverpool would set their sights on richards as right back
senna will not be comin to england
expect a shock return to liverpool for owen
zhirkov to chelsea (around 15–20mil )
pato or aguero to chelsea for about 35–45 mil
the ajax defender vermalaen should soon complete around a 11mil move to the emirares
