Football Rumours Archive September 18 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Fergie will be making few, if any, signings in January as most of his targets are likely playing in the WC and do not want to move 6 months before the tournament and risk their form or place in their national squad. Silva is the obvious one, and a deal has been agreed in principle (although not officially) for 25mil next summer. Nani could be involved as a player exchange, but only if he fails to impress SAF the rest of this season. Aguero is still a target, but SAF won't pay over 50mil for him, so it all depends on how stubborn Atletico wish to be. The following target will depend on Hargreaves return. If needed, expect Utd to move for another CM, almost certainly Gourcuff as we have a great relationship with Bordeaux after this summer's Obertan dealings. Finally, as always, SAF will spend on youngsters with potential. I can't begin to say who, as it is impossible to know, but the names being floated around like Hazard, Douglas Costa, etc. Expect certain players who don't live up to expectations this season to move on, and remember United still have Macheda and Wellbeck as well as young Serbian Adem Ljajic coming in January. Good luck this weekend to everyone....well, cept ManCitiBank.


After everton didn't spend much in the summer kenright will buy 1 player in January As most of the long term injurys will be back so moyes will possibly go for a young left back for cover as baines is the only one. But in the summer moyes will go for 2 big players possibly van der vart for 7mill to add some creation to the midfield & next season rodwell will be in the first 11 each week. The next. Big player in will be a world class striker because jo will leave because efc will not pay 15mill for him as they could get a much better Striker it will be klas jan hunttlear or vanger love costing around 15mill after add ons. Moyes will also loan in 2 players one will be a defensive mid as Neville is getting old don't know who yet the other will either be another striker on loan or a right midfielder possible bentley. Please post

The word is the Rio is engineering a move to one of the Big clubs in Spain. He has seen what John Terry is now on and you know what players are about pride. It would also suit his outside business interests and raise his profile. Remember where you heard it here first.



Angel Di Maria is coming to Liverpool


(((AFCBULLETIN ))) Possable move by Juventas 4 Eboue, Gibbs 2 replace him . Expect AW 2 move 4 a GK 2 replace either Mannone or Fabianski, AW is interested in Wigens KIrkland , WHUFC green . Its heard AW is now looking at other strikers as Juventas may sign Bordeuax striker Chamakh .


Man United/Valencia agreed a £25m deal which will see David Silva come to Old Trafford in January with Nani going on loan to Valencia for 2 seasons. Man City will sign Yaya Toure in January and another rumour was that they were going to bid for Lionel Messi... however, Messi has just signed a 7 year extension contract with Barcalona which has a £225 million clause in it. Liverpool will have a new manager by January and it's most likely Guus Hiddink, they will bid for Sergio Aguero in January and if the bid fails they will turn to David Trezeguet and Liverpool desperately need another striker to team with Torres. Chelsea will not be signing anyone as they are banned from signing anyone until 2011.


Arsenal will move 4 a new CB in January, after Djournou was ruled out for 6–8 months. Early favourite being Borussia Dortmund's Neven Subotic. Wenger was willing 2 offer 12 million in the summer but Dortmund wanted 18. Expect Wenger and Gazidis 2 b more agressive in closing the deal at around 15 million.

Chamakh is also on the radar, with Wenger wanting to move quick come January as Juventus are on the look out 4 a replacement 4 Trezequet and are scotuing the Moroccan out. He is willing 2 offer the striker 50000 a week as he is concerned about RVP's ability to play CF in a 4–3–3 system. He would move RVP to the right and leave Arshavin on the left while Chamakh would slot in at CF.

Next summer, along with Chamakh, Sakho should replace Silvestre in an 8 million deal with Silvestre going 2 PSG. Wenger is confident that Song, Denilson and Diaby will fo the job in midfield but has his eye on Udinese pair Kwadwo Asamoah and Gohakn Inler as well as Parma's Kenyan midfielder McDonald Mariga. Atletico starlet Igancio Camacho is still being scouted.


United news:–
sir ale had 105 mil to spend this summer with 80 mil from ronaldo and 25 mil kept for tevez.sir ale bid for benzema but the price went way too high and sir ale wanted three players in, so he gave up on benzema.united then bid for silva which was accepted but he wanted one more season at valencia so united still bought him an have let him stay with valencia for one more season as united do this in case of many players.sir ale's final target was aguero but he did not want to sign unless mourinho was the manager as he has great admiration for the man.but jose is still unsure over becomin the net united manager and the issue will be dealt with next summer.


I've been in spain now for the past 3 years and i live just outside Valencia.

I can tell u now for a FACT, David Silva will NOT be joining Liverpool. He was questioned by AS newspaper a few days ago about the prospect of playing in England one day and his exact comments were as follows:,

"England and the premier league have always interested me. Manchester United are my favorite team and they suit my style of play. It would be hard to resist them."

Manchester United have been interested in Silva for 2 years now and they are close to agreeing a deal in january to announce the signing of Silva, but.., he will be loaned straight back to Valencia for the rest of the season so not jeopardize his world cup place.

I read this forum a lot as i love hearing rumors, but Liverpool fans seem really deluded on here and always seem to be Linked to everyone, even though they have no money. I think a lot of there supporters on here seem to think Silva is a certainty because of there spanish connections. They need to wake up and smell reality.

Mind you, i support the mighty Aston Villa has its ups and downs, but we target REALISTIC players.


So much for the guy saying Neill was coming back to West Ham?? So please, anyone with info on West Ham takeover? Irons

Peter Kenyon will join LFC within 3 months


To the person who wrote this, "I am based in the US and rather close (cannot say in what way – I'd get fired) to the high–ups at Hicks holdings. There is no truth in the 'Benitez' fired and cheated out of his compensation package story."

Your contacts must be a janitor and a mailroom boy. It's Hicks Holdings with a capital "H." Benitez is done and dusted. He's basically a caretaker manager until the Christmas break.

I've been telling you for weeks, he is off in Jan and will be replaced by a British born manager – FACT. The compensation has been agreed to; the package is much less than you think – FACT. Benitez has a handshake deal with Real Madrid – FACT.
