Football Rumours Archive November 16 2006


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Freddy Adu will not sign for Utd as he is not good enough. SAF is allowing him to train at Carrington purely as a courtesy to Nike. The MLS is virtualy a non-contact league and Adu would be unable to handle the physical nature of English football.Trezeguet to Newcastle for 17million???? That must be a joke. Firstly, Trezeguet isn't worth 7million never mind 17. Secondly, Newcastle do not have that sort of money to spend. Thirdly, Glen Roeder has no transfer targets as he knows he will not be Newcastles manager on 1 Jan.Ronaldos decision to defy SAF and play for Portugal may be the final straw. SAF has never been afraid to get rid of players who cause problems and is prepared to let the winger go to Madrid for 16million + Beckham. Nani and Moutinho will be signed with the fee received. Torres will sign in Jan for 21million. Hargreaves will be delayed until the summer as SAF wants to see how Carrick does. If Carrick continues to impress hargreaves will not be signed with Utd opting for a younger/cheaper holding midfielder instead.No offence to Derek but you obviously regard Ricksen as a midfielder which shows how little you know. Fernado Ricksens prefered position is at right back which means if he signed for Newcastle he would be in direct competition with Stephen '6 chins' Carr. Are you sure Newcastle don't need him?Ok SAF has been given the nod to move for 5 players, these are Richards (to replace neville), Nani, Hargreaves, Kaka and Torres. This is see Smith, Brown and Richardson all leave. Some may happen in jan but Kaka will not come until the summer. Da ManLfc:- anton ferdinand - 5mil

leighton baines - 4.5mil

rafael v.d.vaart - 6mil + garcia

kevin nolan - 3mil + sissokoNani (8mill) and Hargreaves (18mill) will come to United in Jan window! Torres in 2008 Jan window as price will have been cut in half, and also MAN UTD have no great need for a new striker. SWP to Atletico in jan for 9mill aswell. Ribery will not sign for arsenal anytime soon as they will not meet marseile's asking price.I will send in the REAL possibilities for january if we get taken over:

Manchester United will be signing two players for sure either in January or more likely next summer. These players are Owen Hargreaves (15mil, after he proves to SAF that he is fully recovered) and Fernando Torres (24mil, Fergie believes he needs three elite strikers to compete in both the Prem and the CL). In addition, SAF will invest in the future by signing Adu (6mil), Nani (9mil), and possibly Moutinho (16mil) or Kerlon(7mil). The talk of Ronaldinho or Kaka moving to Old Trafford has to be considered nonsense until something more concrete were to happen. If either became availble there is no doubt that Utd would be involved as they are both special players that would fill a need in the squad, and the funds could be made available, but it is far too early to speculate that either would move on from their current situations.

INSIDER NEWSPlease stop these Arsenal Rumours, they will not be buying anyone in the jan transfer window. The only major activity to happen in the summer is Ribery joining them and Freddie L going to Italy possibly with ParmaReading News:

In January Reading will make moves on:

Nugent- 2.5m

Walcott- loan (possible)

Huddlestone- 3m

Lurrren from Arsenal 1.5m has he will want first team footie which he won't get at arsenal while Eboue is there.

Also S. Sidwell will sign a long term contact to prove he is committed to the culb.

Roch VirdeeFreddy Eastwood has agreed a deal to sign for West Ham United on January 3rd, i know this as i was drinking in a pub called varsity in southend which is located next to Mayhem nightclub down Warrior Square.

and Freddy told a few people that the fee is £1,000,000 + add ons.

So there from the horses mouth its a done dealArsenal manager Arsene Wenger knows that he has to start blooding some homegrown talent over the next two seasons in accordance with new FIFA regulations. At the moment, Wenger only has Theo Walcott and Justin Hoyte to choose from, with fringe players such as Matthew Connolly and Mark Randall looking to step up to the first team. However, I've caught wind of a rumour that last season's Champions League finalists will look to add another three England U21 players to their squad alongside Walcott and Hoyte. Liverpool keeper Scott Carson, currently on loan at Charlton, is a long term target for the Gunners and could make a switch next summer. Charlton are unlikely to pursue a permanent transfer, especially if they get relegated, and Liverpool have Jose Reina and Jerzy Dudek ahead of Carson in the Anfield pecking order. The second player Wenger will chase is Watford's Ashley Young. The winger is impressing in the Premiership and has already been linked with a move to the Emirates in the papers. The other player is Leighton Baines of Wigan Athletic, the left back being tipped to replace Ashley Cole in the senior side. Baines will apparently ask for a transfer in January, but Paul Jewell will refuse a move until the summer at least. Wigan could have another Pascal Chimbonda fiasco on their hands, but Baines' insistance to move to a club with more ambition could land him a move to Arsenal, who are looking for a new left back to compete with Gael Clichy following Cole's disloyal defection across London.Firstly, to the Tottenham fan who said Arsenal have no money because of the new stadium. How fooish are you? Football is a business and done over the long term and therefore Arsenal have plenty of cash because of increased income. Furthermore it was said that Wenger had £20m to spend not so long ago.

To Mr West Ham Percentage. Who are you?! You can't randomly decide on percentages of transfers, that's just quite blatently cock and bull! Especially when you rate Ashley Young as a 100% certaren'ty of leaving Vicarage Road. Firstly, he loves the club. His two younger brothers are there. His family lives in Watford and under no circumstances would the ambitious Aidy Boothroyd sell his best talent in January. Jesus.

One rumour, it has become apparent that the Hornet's are set to turn their attention to Alan Smith on loan. SAF and his colleagues have a good relationship with the Vicarage Road staff after previous deals and Boothroyd is still looking for someone to feel Marlon's shoes. Smithy to Watford pleases both SAF and Aidy so expect a deal to be reached shortly.

Tibbs.My friend is david gill's nephew and he has been told the glaziers are demanding sucsess and want 2 endear themselves 2 the united faithful so they've taken a gamble and raised 100 million 2 be spent over the jan and summer tranfer windows but unfortunatly that means there won't be any money the year after unless players r sold first

sir alex plans 2 spend wisely and buy top class talent as if he doesn't he may be asked 2 step down so the players he's lookin at are hargreaves no surprises there long team replacement 4 keane torres replacement 4 van nistlrooy ribery/malouda/vicente replacment 4 giggs nelson replacement 4 neville kaka/mouthinho replacement 4 scholes

so the team will look like this next year

van der sar/kuszchk











so now u know whos gonna win the prem cham league fa cup and every other trophy goin next yearTo the person who said newcastle are in debt you are correct. HOWEVER, newcastle will be given money to spend in the january transfer window as stated by chairman freddy sheperd(FACT!)

Newcastle ins: beattie, upson, distin and possibly bridge and nugent.

Newcastle will not get relegated i will put my morgage on it.RFC out in January will be N'Diaye, Novo, Rae, Hutton with Prso, Klos, Ricksen, Bardsley (end of loan) and Martin (end of loan) going in the summer. no new players in January, and summer signings will depend on what cash available, possible Brown/Whittaker from Hibs, but PLG looking at French players on Bosman dealsMAN City news - micah richards to arsenal for 10m plus flamini. SP will get around half of this to spend on transfers, he will try to buy freddy eastwood 2.5m and a right back and a centre back incase distan doesn't sign a new deal at city of manchester stadium. the right back could be a loan deal for glenn johnson which could move to a permanant deal.EDDYCutis davis of west brom is a transfer target in the summer, pompy and man city are chasing the player also man city are looking at gera from west bromWatford are after Heidar Helguson,David Healy,Collins John,David Nugent,Alan Smith,Carlton Cole, and Nathan Elington as they look for a replacement for Marlon King. Ray Parlour and Richard Wright could also be on there way to Vic.I work for a national paper and have it on good source from one of the footy journalists about the following transfers. .i can't promise all will happen but its the talk in the trade at the moment.

Richards will go to arsenal and not chelsea. The reason it is his dream to play for his boyhood club. City are prepaired to let him go as Trabelsi is finding form.

Shaun Moloney will go to Villa for a small fee in January as his contract is up. He wants to work with Martin O 'Neil again as he feels he has improved all he can at Celtic.

At Sunderland expect to see Roy keanne go after a young Irish player who plays upfront for Scunthorpe by the name of Andy Keogh. Keane had spoken with Former ireland manager and youth team boss Brian Kerr about this player. Also Alan Smith does not want to leave united to go on loan but has secretly said he will only go to Sunderland if he is forced on loan as he feals he can learn so much from keane and make the transition into a center mid.

Newcastle are desperate to sighn James Beattie in January. Also a possable swap with Valencia with Emre for Edu may happen.

Benitez knows that he must hack away sum fringe players and dead wood in the squad and soon. He knows that he has too many left sided player and expect Kewell to go with possable suiters are Spurs, Roma and shockingly Man Utd if the price is right. Expect to see Hypia being slowly eased out of the side with Agger becoming first choice and Palleta becoming first sub.It is well known the Rafa never took a shine to Steve Fin ( tried to replace with Josemi, Kromkamp and Agger )so expect him to chase Belleti from Barca. Fowler will be offerd a one year pay as you play deal. Providing Steven Reid can regain fitness and regain his form from last season expect him to go as a utility player and competiotion for Pennant.

Spurs know that there biggest problem is trying to keep ahold of players. Expect big money contracts to be given to Lennon, King, Dawson and Robinson to makensure the back bone of the team will stay. Defoe has never lived up to his potential and Spurs know that he must go to recoup their investment in him soon. All the big four know not to touch him so expect a bidding war from Villa and Newcastle to ensue.

Finally in terms of world football my contact has assured me that Ronaldo ( Madrid )has lost his will to play anymore. He hates Capello and knows when he gets fit he can leave. Expect to see him shortly playing in the MLS with the new " Beckham rule " introduced. Kerlon seen as the new Kaka will move to Madrid as they have givin up on ever getting Kaka as he wants to become a Milan ledgend. Barcelona are going to make a big move for a striker in January and will pull out all the stops to get David Villa.Aston Villa to sign Shaun Maloney and James Milner for definate in the summer. The Milner deal was done but Newcastle missed out on signing Mark Viduka before the transfer window closed, so Milner had to return to Newcastle, much to his dislike! Villa also looking to of load Baros, J Llyod Samuel and Djemba Djemba. O'Neil is not happy with Baros's work ethic in training and will be looking to get about £4-£5 million for him.FERNANDO RICKSEN TO NEWCASTLE TO REPLACE CARR.RUMOURS THAT WILL HAPPEN

fredy eastwood 3 mil

chun soo 1.3 mil- - JWIRE- - -


Kaka will NOT be leaving Milan anytime soon,he only signed a new 5 year deal in the summer.

Im a United fan myself and to the person who said that SAF see's Kaka as the perfect scholes replacement you are 100% wrong.Kaka has skill and rarly tackles,scholes has no skill and always tackles.

Chelsea will sign no one in January.

Man Utd will look for replacements for neville and giggs.They are Nigel de Jong or Johnny Heitinga and for giggs they are Nani or Moutinho.

United will not sign them both.

Fernando Torres is far from a done deal.If he doesn't join in January he will never join.

Also united will only sign De Rossi if the Hargreaves deal fall through.BUT! don't expect him to come for less than £18 million.Roma would let Totti walk rather then sell De Rossi.

Arsenal will sign Ribery in January.

Beckham will sign a new deal with Madrid.

Also expect Madrid to sign Marcelo(LB),GAGO(CM)and Higuain(S) all in January.

With the arrival of Marcelo,Roberto Carlos may leave,not to Chelsea but to Fernabache.

Liverpool will sign Lucas Neill on a free in the summer or for £1.5 in January to beat Barce or Milan.

Carlos Tevez will join Barcelona.

Mascherano will not be following him.

Atletico Madrid will sign Porto winger Quaresma for around £7 million.

And finally,to the person who said that Adu has impressed SAF on his trial,well get this he isn't going to be in Mnchester until the 17th of October,so explain that please.

- - JWIRE- - - Im a big HIBS fan and have heard that STEVEN PRESSELY will be signing for us in the Jan transfer window. This is because he has had a major fall out at hearts and John Collins really likes him. BROWN, THOMSON and WHITTAKER are all staying as they strongly believe they have a good chance of getting into Europe. RAB DOUGLAS will be joining as our new keeper and RIORDAN will be returning on loan for the remainder of the season. WTSIm a LFC fan and iv heard that we will be swapping Garcia for Guti. We will also be signing Craig Gordon from under Arsenals noses if Pepe Reina decides to go to Valencia. Lucas Niell and Defoe will also be signing.I support LEICESTER CITY and i can tell you that we are getting quality players in Jan. With Manderick bying us out it is attracting players from all over the place. Riordan will be joining from celtic as will O'Connor from Lokomotiv Moscow. These will be reunited as they formerly played for hibs together.Rangers will sign Scott Brown, Steven Whittaker from Hibernian. Pressley and Anderson from Hearts and Aberdeen while sign on 2 year deals and Alan Smith from Manchester United will sign on loan. Gavin Rae will sign for Hibs in the Brown deal. Celtic want Darren Huckerby from Norwich and could let Derek Riordan leave the opposite direction.West Brom to sign 3 players and 1 on loan in january and they are all 100% true they are: El Hadj Diouf, Alan Smith(Loan),Freddy Eastwood, and they will bring back the horse- - - - -

These are the Real Madrid targets for January:

Mexes(Roma),Stankovic(Inter),Gago(Boca),Higuain(River). Strangely, a bid may also be tabled for stranded Man Utd striker Alan Smith.

Bearing in mind the left back Marcelo has just signed for the club, Capello wishes to further rejuvenate the defence with the signing of one of his personal favourites, to pair with Cannavaro. Mexes could cost up to 10m.

Stankovic is refusing to sign a new contract at Inter in the hope he can become part of something big at Real Madrid. Capello has also expressed admiration for this player. He is in good form, yet an offer of 10-12m may tempt Inter.

Gago and Higuain are rumoured to have already signed a double deal to join the club. Gago would rotate with Diarra in midfield, while Higuain would be expected to ease the inevitable departure of Ronaldo(probably off to Inter) with his goals. Both are worth around 10m. Expect the players to join for a combined fee of 15-20m.

Capello may still be interested in the arrival of Smith even if Higuain joins the club, for Cassano is also expected to leave(Milan have expressed a strong desire to sign the player). It may sound odd, but Capello admires the tenacity, teamwork and versatility of Smith. 5-10m may see him leave Man Utd. Ferguson is none too concerned about his striking options at the moment.
