David Villa will sign for Liverpool for an initial fee of £26 million with Yossi Benoyuon going to Valencia.

  My Dad is a traffic warden and was stopped by a lost John Gregory he asked for directions to the Walkers stadium,

Also my cousin seen him at McDonalds just off J21 of M1

  Rumours from inside Ibrox as follows

Thuram–done deal (free). so no sellic he is not on his way to the manky east end.

Sean Malloney– certainty to join the Gers, almost a done deal.

And Sadly, King Carlos is on his way out because Mr Bain and SDM cannot resist the smell of fresh notes that will be in abundance from the deal. sad day.

We will not get Beckham because we have not even enquired about him and that goes for Ballack also. (ridiculous rumours)

The manky green and grey hoops of the east end of Glasgow will not sign highly rated Roman Pavlyuchenko who is incidently being chased by FC Barcelona (do the math). nor will they get a sniff of £16 million rated Darren Bent. but thanks for the laughs, we were all in stitches at that one back in the southside, and no doubt all across the UK.

thanks for Reading–Ibrox Insider., KiD E fdlrs

  Big A–league news right here. much to the surprise of many Victory fans Archie Thompson will be sold to Adelaide United in a direct swap for Robert Cornthwaite, Thompson will slot directly into Uniteds defense and use his height effectively for the first time, Cornthwaite will take over from Theoklitos as first choice keeper. Also with the money United recieved from Burns/Djite they will sign NRL star Petro Civoneceva as their new forward. A. W. N. Y

  The Hammers' scouts have gone to the Euros to meet with Slavin Billic. Curbishley has named 3 Croatian players he is interested in and sent his scouts to see if Billic will allow them to watch them train and see what their attitude is like.

Also while they are there they will be checking out the Turkish team too.

  Ok so rumours about David Villa coming to Anfield are huge, however he will not join Liverpool for a number of reasons.

1. He's out of our price range, and Hicks has not had a good year in the US, behave

2. Nemeth will be perfect in the 09/10 season; we will not buy Villa, 26 years old, to play with our 23 year old Torres, because we simply will not splash 20–25 million on a player for two seasons.

Expect a relatively experienced forward, ideally Henry, however we would be priced out and I doubt he would want to join. You may well see a cheeky bid for Gudjohnsen go in, as he wants to come back to England.

Agger is going nowhere, behave and expect the Barry deal to go quiet, much like the Bently rumour.

Ok to the tangle of wingers, Rafa does not want Nasri; he feels that anything above £10 million for him is too much. Quaresma will go to United, much to my disappointment, but this is only because Ronaldo will go, yes he will, to Real Madrid for 50 million + a possible Sergio Ramos, but it is too early to foretell. Silva could well end up going to Chelsea, but Joe Cole could well be offered to leave, and he does not want to leave England, or go to a club in London. Leaving United or Liverpool offering Champions league football. United are not in the market for a winger. Chelsea could ask around 16 million, but if Joe Cole wants to leave he will get his way eventually I am sure, all that needs is for some money from the Americans, but that is like taking candy from two very stubborn businessmen.

  I own a corner shop near to Joey Barton's parents house. I was talking to one of the locals who had been speaking to the parents of Joey Barton and they said that he will be at Newcastle next season once he's finally out as Ashley is backing down trying to reduce wages as it was Morts idea and he has now left. They claim Joey has high hopes for next season as Newcastle are close to the signings of Arda Turan and Pablo Aimar, even though they could possibly force him out of the starting 11. Bafetimbi Gomis is still being considered along with Zigic although neither have been aproached.

Special K.

  FC Barcelona are confident of signing Valencia duo David Villa and David Silva. Liverpool are interested in the pair as well while Chelsea and Madrid are interested in Villa.

  Reports claim that because Bolton have signed fabrice mumamba that has alerted Sunderland into a £6 million bid for captain Kevin nolan which will be accepted. Sunderland also have moved to sign mgeady, cuelar, warnock and av also put a bid on for Cardiff defender roger Johnson believed to be £3 million pound. cheers

  Liverpool will make a £10 million move for Hatem Ben Arfa from Lyon and they will aim to finalise a deal within two days of starting negotiations–similar to the way they operated around Ryan Babel last Summer. They will also complete moves for Gareth Barry (17 million) Andrea Dossena (7 million) UlRich Rame (2 million) and a shock signing of Nicklas Bendtner for £8 million.

  Aston Villa will sign Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell and Tottenham full–back Pascal Chimbonda in the next couple of days.

  To the loser who thinks the red half of Merseyside is "tReading water". get a grip of yourself, you seriously think Everton will have a bigger transfer budget than Liverpool? what are you thinking? Also this is a RUMOUR site so to not get yourself involved with Rumours is a little bit THICK is it not? Rumours I have heard are Zarate is in talks with Boca and one EPL team, this is thought to be possibly Liverpool as Benitez likes to have back up for his first options as always, he could be put off by the £20 million price tag though. when you compare this to the fact that Everton are looking to sign such a superstar as JIMMY BULLARD for a whopping £3 Million you can see which team is moving forward and which really is "tReading water" LFCER

  My co–worker is the secretary of one of United's bigger supporters groups and he's been white as a sheet this afternoon after learning about a monumental situation developing at Old Trafford.

It seems that the club have been sounding out the supporters groups about the implications of Ronaldo's transfer to Madrid. As has been mentioned today, it looks like the Glazers have accepted a cash offer, behind Fergie's back, of £65 million for the player and a 10 percent merchandising cut for two years. The figure is lower than expected due to the player's unwillingness to play for United next year.

The situation, however, is compounded by the fact that Fergie, Queiroz and several other key back room staff have decided to quit the club in protest. The Glazers are now threatening to sue the staff which is making the situation much worse.

The supporters groups are being sounded out about preventing supporter demonstrations at the ground. The players are extremely unsettled by these developments and the club are now desperately trying to prevent a general player strike.

The Glazers are keen to sell their main asset now as the pound and dollar could lose even more value against the euro in the next year. They feel Ferguson has too much influence over their investment so are not sorry to see him go either.

This probably will not be the only rumour like this today and there is a chance that the story will break tomorrow or Thursday. I am posting to this site as the club have threatened to break off ties with supporters groups that break the story before the official announcement.

I cannot believe that our club is facing such a bleak situation. I hope it all works out okay, even if there is no way back for Fergie now.

Come on you Reds. United 'till I die.

  Benfica and U. S. star Freddy Adu will be loaned out to Italian side Genoa.

  Sir Alex will sign Valencia right back Miguel for 15 million.

  Everton are after FC Twente midfielder Orlando Engelaar after he has had a impressive showing for the Dutch at Euro 08

  Hearts have knocked back a third bid from Burnley for driver. heard the latest bid was for around £900,000 + addons. also you heard from here first but vladimir Romanov has been speaking to former Hearts boss valdas ivanauskas, strange as there is rumours of a media conference this Friday and valdas is currently without a club. also should be noticed that valdas did have success first time round for Hearts before he had some health issues.

  CELTIC Rumours

Maloney and Petrov could be on their way back if the money is available after Van Buyton (Bayern Munich), Leko (AS Monaco), Stranzl (Spatak Moscow) and Magnin (Stuttgart) sign.

Thuram and Seedorf will not be coming as they are already at top teams. So stop talking rubbish and get some real facts that make sense

__– jH– __

  West Bromwich have signed Derry midfielder Patrick (Paddy) McCourt

  West Bromwich's targets:





Alexandre Song

Marlon Harewood

Danish number 1 Jesper Christiansen


Adel Taarabt

Scott Carson

Kevin McDonald

Radoslaw Majewski

Ibrahima Sonko

  My mate is best friends with Alexei eremenko jr., who apparently has a host of English clubs after him. Stoke, Ipswich and Fulham are the main clubs. Hodgson's Fulham know of the technical ability of the 25 year old from his time as Finland manager. On the other hand, Hodgson is also interested in bringing his younger brother Roman from Udinese.

  As I told you a couple of weeks ago lilian thuram will sign for Celtic Strachan has spoken to the player and agent, he will undergo a medical at Celtic park as soon as France go out of euros. i also said Celtic had made a enquirie about van nistlerooy but real want to much so Celtic will turn to Crouch or pavleychenko. glad we lost out to lafferty his record for goals is poor and that is in the championship. 51 and stopped

  West Bromwich have signed Livingston player Graham Dorrans

  Breaking Leicester City news Dario Gradi in as role of DOF Gerry Taggart in as manager

  After completing the signing of John Spicer, Doncaster Rovers are hoping to tie up a deal for Matt Mills by the end of the week once a medical has been completed. A player + cash deal has also been proposed for Oldham's Chris Taylor. The club is also said to be monitoring the fitness of McLeod at Charlton and Hoskins at Watford, having been interested in taking each player on loan. Potential deals for either player depend on when they recover from long term injuries and how much their clubs are asking.

  Why do Newcastle supporters think they can sign anybody? Rumoursflash you have a mince team as it is and your managers track record is a joke. Cuellar to St. James? Do not think so somehow, why would he leave a team that could win a trebel in Scotland to go to a club that cannot even guarantee him survival?. that fog on the tyne must be obstructing your vision. Rangers on the other hand will sign: Miller, Velicka, Lafferty, Cufre, Lovenkrands, Steve Davis, Klasnic and two creative midfielders or wingers as adam is certainly not the answer wide left.

  I Wish people would stop printing rumours straight from dailly newspapers we can all read them ourselves.Also the 'Football Manager Enthusiasts' give us peace. Scottish Premier League Rumours are unbelieveable: Huntelaar, podolski, Seedorf, D. bent, thuram, Giggs, Kewell etc. to join Celtic is nonsense although they do have a few quid more than Rangers, lucky if one of the above join.More likely are van buyten and frei or pavlyuchenko as the big money signings, and other 2 or 3 £3 to £5 million (maybe maloney and or petrov) if Boruc or mccgeady leaves and they manage to get rid of Gravesen, Balde, killen, Riordan, Donati and sno also expect couple of Scottish Premier League squad players to join like Hunt and gomis + for Rangers after signings of Miller £2 million, Velicka £1 million and lafferty £3 million + gow money maybe a bit tighter to sign decent left back, younger partner for Cuellar (as Webster just had double hernia op and out for at least first two months) and creative midfielder that is so badly needed so to be able to go for better players, players will need to be moved on like cousin, darcheville, buffel (who 90 percent of fans want to stay), hemdani and maybe big money for Thomson from mid table EPL club or West Bromwich/Birmingham, boyd same clubs as Thomson, mcgregor if big cash is offered

  Man United: Ronaldo will eventually be sold as their is nothin United can do about if the player weants to leave, Ronaldo is simply toying with the media and loves the media attention. if a deal is to be done it will either be £87.5 million straight up, £60 million + Robinho or £37.5 million + Ramos + Robinho. United have tried to add cassilas and snEider in the deal but cassilas will never leave and snEiders price has shot through the roof considering his form in the euros.

it is widly known that United are searching for a hitman to play closer to goal. they are in order of how much United want them

1. Benzema – although United know it highly inprobable

2. Berbatov – £27 million

3. Huntelaar – £18. 5

4. Luis fabiano – if his reported release Clause is true

5. Fernando cavenaghi – £12.5 million

at right back United are looking at ( if Ramos is not included in the Ronaldo deal)

1. Micah Richards £19 million

2. Phillip lahm £13 million

Liverpool: Liverpool are really struggling to get any funds together, any funds hey get will be from fringe pplayers sold, the likes of Riise, finna, Crouch, Carson, vorinin, Pennant and Alonso will all be sold to fund the following players

Barry – £15 million

Dossena (done) £7 million

Arda Turan – £11 million

  Released Man United Midfielder Richie Jones will sign for Swindon Town before preseason begins for the Robins on the 27th June. Jones who can play central/right midfield will provide competition and height to the Town Midfield.

  Liverpool Nasri "first option" – bit of confusion about this. all it means is that Lfc have the option to match the accepted bid and discuss terms with Nasri. in which case, Nasri can choose who he wants. I would be surprised if Lfc would offer £12.5 million seeing as they will not pay £15 million for Barry. I would be even more surprised if Nasri chose the chance to sit on Lfc bench over playing for a club known for giving young players a chance.

Also, Villa has publicly stated he would rather play for Madrid or FC Barcelona than in England, so unlikely to go to Lfc, Arsenal etc. (although Chelsea could make it financially impossible to turn down).

Finally, would be good if people here posted rumours rather than wishes.

  Wba rumours

phillips is leaving which I do not no why. he got you 2 the Premier League.

been linked with Dave kitson an Stephen hunt. both 4 £8 million (bargin)

leacock from Derby is also linked which would tighted up the defense.

i no this because my mum is deans keilys baby sitter

am a DINGLE.

  The money made from Kyle Laffertys departure to Rangers will go straight into the transfer fund and be made available for Owen Coyles Burnley targets. The names Coyle is expected to bring to Burnley are:

1) Derek Riordan (Celtic £1 million)

2) Andrew Driver (Hearts £750 k)

3) Darren Barr (Falkirk £600 k)

4) Diego Penny (Colonel Bolognesi £400 k)

5) Martin Patterson (Scunny £450 k)

6) Bostjan Cesar (Marseille £600 k)

7) Kevin Mcdonald (Dundee £350 k)

8) Stephen Crainey (Blackpool £250 k)

9) Alan Gow (Rangers £0 Part of the Lafferty sale)

  David Villa could snub FC Barcelona after Torres has persuaded his fellow Spaniard to join Liverpool. Samuel Eto'o will join the Premier Leauge with Phil Scolari set to make him his main signing at Chelsea to replace the departing Drogba. Anelka and Pizzaro will also be cleared out with Scolari set to also bring in Deco from FC Barcelona and forward Adriano from Inter. The Portugese boss is also chasing Ronaldinho while Shevcheko is being urged to stay by the new boss.

Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba will depart the club along with Anelka, Pizzaro, Sidwell and Florent Malouda.

= v1=

  Lets have it right, Liverpool do not have any money. Forget Villa, Quaresma etc. LFC are skint. They might scrape enough for Barry but that is the lot until the Yanks leave town.

Sad but True

  My friend works in Celtic park and he has told me that there are a few big names that the board are trying to bring to parkhead. One is Seedorf, his time in Milan is coming to an end and he still wants Champions League football and was impressed by the Celtic fans on his visits to the ground. Darren Fletcher could also be on his way as Man United are looking to clear out some players. also expect a central defender to come in and it could well be Senderos from Arsenal.

going out at Celtic will be Balde, Gravesen, Donati and Riordan clubs yet to be settled. Boruc may leave to join Arsenal for £15 million and if so Celtic will go for either Cudicini or Craig Gordon for 12 milion punds + Balde and Riordan.

  Hartlepool's Manager Danny Wilson is number one target for Mk Dons once Paul Ince leaves to takeover as boss of Blackburn.

  I have some very interesting news, I have a pretty reliable source who very rarely gives me any info but when he does he is usually spot on. He tells me that Arsenal have signed Inler and Zapata from Udinesse for a combined fee of £20 million, it will be announced in the first week of July. Wenger has also bid for Albiol but is waiting for a response from Valencia, the bid is thought to be £7 million + Senderos. Nasri and Ramsey are also done deals.

  Kris Boyd will leave Rangers and join Birmingham. Big Eck loves the player and feels he can convince Boyd to come to St. Andrews especially after Rangers have signed three new forwards.

Other Rangers rumours – Martain Bain (Cheif Exec. ) will travel to the Euro finals tonight to tie up deals for 2 big sinings one French and one Italian

100 percent true.
