Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

"and i'v also herd the possibility of young superstar Bojan Krkic on loan. I personally believe this could work as Celtic have a good policy with Barca and Marc Crosas is here. Also the SPL would build up his strengh and his pace would be vital. Also he would be playing in the champions league!"
I dunno u could get a hard qualifier:P.

If rangers win the league,
walter to stay till his contract is up in december and hand over to ally, very little on the transfer front
g smith
expect to see alot more of the youth after christmas with loy and furman back from loan and more from arron fleck little and wilson, mayb even a fleeting apperance for wylde.
  To the person who wrote the below. . you muppet!!

Breaking news! After the Man United trophy ceremony last night one of my mates was sitting outside Old Trafford when the squad came out. He got Ronaldo's auto–graph and noticed there was no Carlos Tevez until around 30 minutes later. He was on his way back home when he could hear voices he looked back and Tevez and Fergie were standing outside the Old Trafford Entrance talking about next season. . both of them walked away with a big smile on their face. My mate shouted "Have you signed for us yet Tevez?" and Tevez apparently just winked at him and laughed.

That is the biggest load of rubbish I have ever read!

Now for some real rumours. Ronaldo will not be going to Madrid this season! Tevez will not be signing for Utd as they only want to pay £15 million and that is £10 million short of the agreement 2 years ago. Rooney is waiting to see what signings are made this summer and how the teams does before deciding if now is the right time to go abroad!
  Liverpool rumours. . just a couple things ive heard:
Ryan Babel – Ajax (season loan)
Emalino Insua – West Ham (loan)
And the usual suspects : Pennant, Itandje, Voronin. .

Glen Johnson – £10million
Antonio Valencia/David Bentley – £16million/£12million
Carlos Tevez – £24million

  Everton NEWS
Moyes has asked for 40m and wants tevez £25m and moutinho £12 & £3 barton Champion League next season is a real target. .COYB. .
  Cardiff City

Steven Smith from Rangers will be signed on a free transfer.

Mark Hudson from Charlton will be signed for £400k.

Joe Ledley to be sold to Stoke for £5m.
  Im half French, and my cousin is a lower league player in France, but he used to play for Monaco youth team. He still has contacts there and the big buzz was that a party from Arsenal were 100% at the last two or three training sessions/games watching Jean–Jacques Gosso, the Ivory Coast defensive midfielder. So the connections (Monaco – Wenger Ivory Coast – Toure, Eboue etc) are all there already.
  Can we get one thing clear as of now. RONALDO will be staying with Man Utd. He has made this clear verbally, his body language suggests it and his £6m long–term deal with Nike confirms it (Real Madrid have no links with Nike). If anyone posts rumours to the contrary (they are probably Liverpool supporters who desperately want him to go to enhance their chances for next season) then you know that the quality of any associated moves must be rubbish.

With the seaon coming to an end soon there are so many rumours flying about:
Nothing concrete about Chelsea whatsoever. Expect an early announcement on the next manager (remember last year) to get the transfer ball rolling
Not going to mention much about City – too much silly talk beig spread
Nothing concrete about Arsenal
The rumour about VIDIC leaving Man Utd is unlikely (but not impossible) at the moment BUT if he did leave for family reasons, HANGELAND from Fulham has been mooted. Utd will bend over backwards to keep Vidic
OWEN to Everton on a free is looking more and more likely BUT wages will be a stumbling block. If too expensive for Everton, Owen will be City bound
ALONSO will stay at Liverpool. He's too popular at Anfield and Rafa would be ridiculed if he sold him
KUYT will stay but TEVEZ will not be arriving at Anfield – they're too similar and Tevez will be too expensive
BABEL will be off, back to Europe presumably, where there will be several suitors, as he has been a big failure in the EPL
With Alonso's future secured for the next couple of years at least, BARRY will stay at Villa – unless Arsenal make a move which is unlikely
NANI will be off. SAF would prefer to sell him as funds will not be as plentiful as a lot of people suggest. Otherwise on loan in the EPL. Many rumours of Nani being replaced with VALENCIA from Wigan so a lot of smoke might indicate there's a fire
Not a rumour but a feeling. Everyone seems to think that GLEN JOHNSON will be joining Liverpool. I'm not so sure as he could be the perfect replacement for Gary Neville at OT, with the twins as back up for Johnson and Evra
  Arsenal fans just accept it xabi alonso WILL NOT sign for you and Liverpool are in severe debt why would they loan out Ryan Babel?? Please stop posting wishlists of you football manager shortlist and to the Celtic fan who thinks they are going to sign Bojan Krkic, thanks for the laugh!! Now for some rumours

David Silva to Liverpool (£15m + babel to replace him)
Sergio Aguero to Liverpool(£18m + arbeloa and Lucas)
Liverpool to fund these by selling fringe players + the money from the Keane deal as Liverpool don't owe spurs anything due to part of transfer
Xabi Alonso will NOT leave as Rafa knows how much he needs his passing in midfield

  With Hull City looking set to avoid the drop, Phil Brown has drawn up his wanted list, and my good friend is an Academy player at the mighty KC.

Frazier Campbell £4m
Robert Huth £2m
Vela (Loan)
Darren Bent £7m / Owen (Free)
Nesmachnyi £1.7m
Camacho £5m
Eljero Elia £3m
Benayoun £3m
Zigic £5m

Folan – QPR – £2m
Marney – Wolves – £2m
Garcia – Accrington – 50p (Hopefully)
Halmosi – West Brom – £1m
Hughes – Leicester – £1m
Geovanni – Benfica – £9m
Cousin – PSG – £2m
France – Tranmere – 300k
Welsh – Carlisle – 500k
  I have heard few rumors,

Tevez is using Liverpool link to pressure United deal, and he will be succsessful, he will get long time contract.

Gudjohnsen will leave Barcelona and head to prem. he may go to Newcastle if they avoid drop, but most likely will join Tottenham, as Redknapp will get rid of Pavelchuenko (spelling) after his latest disrespect (let's face it, he isn't the sharpest tool in the box)

Wenger will offload Adebayor and the useless Diaby.

Benitez will try to buy striker, probably Aguero, cash + Babel
  Liverpool fc will be offloading a number of players to make money for 4 big name signings,going out will be.
benitez will not look 2 bye loads of small money signings as he wants to strengthen the first eleven,
so expect
tevez 22million
silva 17 million
glen johnson 9 million
barry 8 million
and if rafa has any money left he will try to sign javi martinez 12million
tevez is a done deal already that's why tevez did not say he wants to stay after the arsenal game and is desperate to play with torres up front and of course mascherano
  Migel vuloso sporting lisbon – arsenal
miguel valencia – aston villa

craig gardner is a dead cert to move from aston villa to birmingham city next season
  Right! this is happening anything else you have read is not.

First up Rafael Benitez is going to start his English Rafalution at Anfield by snapping up Ashley Young and Gareth Barry in a joint £25 million deal. Barry has fulfilled what he said last summer in trying to get Villa into a Champions League Spot and Young does not fancy Thursday night football for another season in the Europa League.

Secondly Glen Johnson will join in an £8 million deal. This figure was set up in a release clause Johnson had stipultaed in his contract signed earlier in the season and has been triggered by Pompey's faliure to reach a top 10 place finish.

To help part fund these deals, leaving Liverpool this summer will be:
– Jermaine Pennant who will join Wigan to replace the deaprting Antonio Valencia who is off to Perez's Madrid masterplan.
– Andrea Dossena, who will yet again replace or at least provide competition for Jon Arne Riise at Roma.
– Ryan 'DJ' Babel who Arsene Wenger wants as he does not think he has enough under achieveing young players.
– Lucas Leiva will be sent on loan as Benitez thinks he stil may have a future at the club and does not want him to go on the cheap this summer and see him become a success elsewhere.

Finally Carlos Tevez will not be joining Liverpool as although they were his first choice, Benitez does not want to change his 4–5–1, 4–2–3–1, 4–4–1–1 (or whatever you eant to call it) formation, and cannot see Tevez fitting in without dropping Gerrard or Torres.

I'm not a selfish chap so thought I should let you in on the TRUTH in L4
  Celtic Fc

Will 100% not sign Bojan or Owen

And Marc Crosas is no way near the league that Bojan is in .

I have to say Marc Crosas has been a poor signing

However Celtic will sign

James McCarthy or Mogaro Gomis
Paul Dixon
Zander Diamond
Sone Aluko
  I'm Liverpool fan. Four positions we need, right back, centre midfield, winger, striker.
Right back, first choice, Glen Johnson as he fits the bill, 8m.
Centre midfield Barry as he's definitley going to leave Aston Villa for Champions League's football and he would be available. Cost 12m
Winger, Silva, available and could be our major summer transfer. Would cost 17m or more.
Striker, I'm tipping Tuncay from the relegated Middlesbrough, 6m at most.
Transfers out: Babel Bayern Munich 10m
Dossena Lazio 6m
Voronin Hertha Berlin 6m
Arbeloa Athletico Madrid 7m
  Real Madrid have already signed Kaká. They have a total agreement with Milan and with the player and he will play for Real Madrid the next 5 seasons. Madrid will pay for him 63 million euros and Kaká will earn around 9 million euros per season. Its official but Real Madrid will not make it public until the 4th of june. New president Florentino Pérez has promised to create a new los galaticos, he also plans on signing Ronaldo from Man Utd and Xabi Alonso from Liverpool.

There is no truth in the link between Tevez and Liverpool. Rafael Benitez has no intentions of buying a player like Tevez as he feels he has a similiar player in Dirk Kuyt.Instead he has been working behind the scenes to buy David Silva from Valencia. He will also attempt to bring another Spaniard to Merseyside, 20 year old Javi Martinez from Atheltic Bilbao (a replacement for Alonso) he'll bring in some youngsters (Jesus Fernandez) and will also bring a back up striker for Torres (Saviola or Kevin Davies)

trust me
El Listo
  Right 1 Rumour i know of is that Andrew Drury (Stevenage Boro) is being watched by Brighton Not sure how true this is tho i for 1 hope its complete rubbish as hes a great Player.

Also Gary Brabin (Cambridge Manager) as they have just lost in the Play–Off Final i hear theres a league club much higher than them in talks with him, I believe This could be Brighton too or Colchester.

Can anyone tell me if they have also heard about any of these?
  To the person that stated Blackpool would be buying DJ Campbell from Leicester for £2,000,000 please note that Blackpool's record transfer to date is £275,000. Unless Karl Oyston won the Euromillions jackpot last week I'm fairly certain your a little wide of the mark with that. Not saying it won't happen for a smaller sum though (about £1,800,000 smaller!). Also why would anyone pay £750,000 for Paul Dickov when his last 2 transfers were both free's?
  This is 100 % true
out –
cambell – 8 mil hull if they stay up
nani – 11 mil velencia
Kuszczak – 4 mil zenit
berbatov – 22 mil man city
others – 5 mil (lee martin, erkesley etc)
income – 50 mil


benzema – 30 mil
ribery – 35 mil
tevez – 20 mil
Spent – 85 mil

man u will spend 35 mil in total.
If man u can't sign ribery they will sign david villa for 20 mil taking there spending to 20 mil.
SAF has identified 2 kids
1. Dodo already signed for corathians for 3.6 mil and will raise to 5.6 mil.
2. Papadopoulos from olumpiacos.
man utd are monitoring douglas costa. but his 15 mil asking price putting David gill off.

Rember me when it is true.
  Milan Mandaric has renewed his interest in signing rivaldo from FC Bunyodkor and will offer 500k to bring the brazilian striker to leicester
  Ok its time to be realistic with rumours at Ibrox!

If Rangers win the League this year then its possible that Smith will move up the stair and Ally will step into the Manager's chair with McDowall and Durrant being Assistant and Coach. . new regime. . DISASTER!!! If Rangers are wanting to move forward its time for a clear out and pretty much start again! I appreciate that in the current climate that is difficult, however if we want to turn our fortunes around this is the only logical success. Personally, I would like an actual tactician, Phil Brown comes to mind. He has more tactical knowledge in his little finger than the 4 above put together!

Ok for transfer rumours/realistic and might sign one or two of these in cetain positions:

IN: GK – Cerny / G Smith
Def – Robbie Nielson / Tonel / Hreidarsson / Fabio (LOAN) / Severin
Mid – Hughes / Aguiar / Brunt / Morrison / McArthur / Dorman
For – Sandaza / Harewood / Healy / Mehmet

OUT: Boot Ferguson & McGregor out the door, possibly sell Mendes if we get decent cash (everyone knows how to play against him now)

Thomson for new Captain!!! 2 IN A ROW NEXT SEASON!!
  Ok lets get a few things straight about all this crap flying around that liverpool will sign aguero and villa it is not going to happen! However Rafa unfortunatly has stated he has to sell before buying i am basing this on fact! Now outgoings will be Lucas 7m, Babel 12m (Fulham of all people showing interest), Vorinon 3m, Dossena 5m, Caviellieri 2m, and finally realeased will be intandje and degan pennant will leave on a free but because of this pompey will sell us Johnsen (8–12m) also coming in will be an extra keeper, his name is Kameni he plays for espanyol and will arrive on a free, Now the player that will replace hypia is none other than sol campbell he is also a free agent as is julio cruz who will sign on a pay as you play contract and now finally liverpool will produce one big signing none other than david silva for a reported 12m + Arbeloa!

You heard it here first
  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE will people stop linking the worlds best young goalkeeper with teams; Ben Foster is and will be a Man U player next year he is the best prospect to replace VDS and when he does he will be playing for the best team in the world, fact.
  After failing to get into the Europa League West Ham are on the verge of being taken over. The deal has been in the offing for a few months, but without the possibility of European football the price is obviously going to be lower. Zola will be given a strong transfer budget of 15 million and will also be able to spend any money raised from sales. Kia Joorabchian is working on a few deals at the moment, as a way for West Ham to keep him quiet about the Tevez saga and they need to pay him off, keeping their word on their side of the deal. Expect a couple of unknown signings for the future. There is also talk about adventuring into the South American market, with Hernanes and Kerlon just a couple of names mentioned. The new owners want to be in the top 6 next season and build a strong youthful squad to challenge the top four in the future. Carlos Vela has signed a loan deal for the season, whilst West Ham are Also in advanced talks with Bates of Middlesborough. Zola is building a good squad and expect big news coming out of the club after the last game announcing the sale of the club to foreign owners.
  Lyon are going to bolster there squad apparently and won't sell Benzema for less than 35m here are some targets for the club as they want to get back on top and getting through to the semi's of the champions league next season

Yoann Gourcuff
Yoan Gouffran
Fernando Cavenaghi/Keirrison/Bafetimi Gomis
Henri Saivet/André Ayew
Taye Taiwo/Mamadou Sakho
Blaise Matuidi
Ángel Di María
Very unlikely but Henry
  The Peoples Club !!
After missing out Joăo Moutinho & Arshavin last season D Moyes has a new target in Alonso from the shite, Barton's name is in picture again as well, Jo may get a seasons loan, but a quality striker is the target. !
  So after reading all of the cousins of players and agents step brothers and and copius amounts of stewards friends and so on its all nonsense really. I actually work with a steward at Chelsea and he says you hear absolutley nothing on transfers as no rumours at all hardly come from match days!! Anyway on Arsenal its believed they will buy 3 players maximum. There is news today that there transfer budget has been reduced to £13m plus what they make in sales. So no 60 –80million spending spree like everyone is suggesting. Anyway the Rumours I have heard regularly are.
DEF:– Hangeland/Bassong (I don't know who would want any defender that has played in the worst defence of the year) Hangeland great choice could be the new Vidic.

MID:– Senna/Veloso/Alonso (I would put into the pot to get Alonso, if we weren't tight pre season and paid the extra money Liverpool wanted it would of been Arsenal scrapping it out with Man Utd i'm sure)

FWD:– Forlan / Negredo (Have no opinion on either both good years in La Liga. Like every other human football fan I would love David Villa but he is not coming, well not at this moment. Everyone who says its a done deal its nonsense probably the most reliable source in Spain (Guillem Balague) says no contact has happened between either clubs.

I think possible outs will be minimal he is desperate to keep the shape in the team. You will see 3 maybe 4 guys out on loan. Plus the sales of possibly Adebayor and Senderos.

Like the other guy who says it even though its a tough time for us. At the moment we have to.

Trust in Arsene!

  To the person who claimed to work for the LFC press department. Firstly, we are not told what to release to the press until a deal has actually been finalised. Secondly, Pennant is out of contract and, as such, will be free to sign for any team he chooses and will certainly not be involved in any swap deal. Thirdly, no money from the Keane transfer has been paid to any club for any player. I do work as part of the press department and have no clue as to who Rafa will sign, although the big RUMOUR at the moment is that Simao is the real target from Atletico.
  Alan Curbishley will be the new Reading Manager.
  My friend works at the red cafe and he can reveal that tevez won't be staying at united because we have another forward lined up. Arsenal forward emanual adebayor for 18 mill plus wes brown! Also tosic joining everton on one year loan and darron gibson teaming up with wolves for reported 4 mill
  Nic Zidic will be with Wolves in the premiership after terms were agreed with Valencia. A second target from the cash strapped Spanish side could well be on the books
  Heard Villa are looking at the following foreign strikers:–

Vagner Love (CSKA)
Edin Dzeko (Wolfsburg)
Ismael Bangoura (Dynamo Kiev)
Demba Ba (Hoffenheim)

Thanks for reading
  Although gunners have disappointing season and wenger is criticized throughout. Wenger will stay with gunner. Wenger is ready to sell ADEBAYOR to Chelsi, MIlan or Barca. He will try to persuade injuryprone dutch ace Robin Van Persie. If he refuses to sign new contract, he will be sold at 15 Mil Pound. incoming players are: Momo Sakho from PSG Bassong and Martins from Newcastle.He is looking for defensive midfielders but all available in market like Veloso, Inler are expensive. He he will go for Matoudi or Coutideur which suits Arsenal bill. Dailymail yesterday reported wenger will be given 13 miliion for summer and 22 million from ade sale. He will have 35 in total, if Ade leaves Dzeko might come.
  Carlos Vela is going on a season long loan to Bristol City. Also Nicky Maynards going to Tottenham for 4.4 mil.
  Birmingham City to sign Mikael Silvestre from Arsenal for 500k
  To settle this 'keane' issue. .
Keane was bought for 18m rising to 21m. 10 down, 8 next season, 3 on winning title and games played.
He was sold for 12m raising to 16m if Tott stay up, goals and games etc.
Liverpool will min lose Min 2m. Max 4m now Tott are safe and liverpool didnt win league.

So yes liverpool do have some money from Keane transfer. This was right from Defoes and Kings mouth about 3 months in Epping. and im a West Ham fan.

Also sorry Hammers as you may guess. Ashton isn't coming back. He wants to, club doesnt. .his insurance payout is 10m to West Ham. .

Carlton Cole
Glen Johnson
David Bentley
  Should Rangers win the league on Sunday then WS will sign Tomas Cerny, Hermann Hreidarsson, Andy Dorman, Peter Lovenkrands, Bruno Aguiar and Robbie Neilson in the next month. He will also try to move on Allan McGregor, Barry Ferguson, Brahim Hemdani, Charlie Adam, Alan Gow, Graeme Smith, Damarcus Beasley, Christian Dailly, Aaron Niguez, Andrius Velicka and at least one from Steven Smith, Andy Webster, Kirk Broadfoot and David Weir.
  Tottenham Hotspur summer 2009 transfers

Frazier Campbell loan end
Ricardo Rocha £1m– Benfica
Ben Alnwick £2m– Sheffield United
David Bentley £8m– Liverpool
Gilberto £2m– Borussia Dortmund
Chris Gunter £2m– Wigan Athletic
Roman Pavlyuchenko £9m– Werder Bremen
Giovani Dos Santos £3m– Villareal
TOTAL: £23m

Marc Antoine Fortuné £3m
Aidan McGeady £13m
  Arsene Wenger will honour his contract as he has always done. However we can look forward to an interesting summer and expect the following:

Once the season closes Usmanov will launch a takeover bid which will see him and Kronke joining forces to take the club forward and David Dein returning to the board. The Emirates stadium will then be paid for and thus removing the drain on the clubs resources.

There will then be a remarkable swap deal with Chelsea that will involve Adebayor and Van Persie moving to Stamford Bridge with Drogba, Anelka and £10m to The Emirates.

Flamini will rejoin the club as he has unfinished business.
  LFC Rumours

As much as i want all of these players to come in, i think we'll get about two of them, maybe three. Then the squad will have more depth and strength and can mount a serious title challenge!!!!

Aguero – 20 mil
David Silva – 18 mil
G. Johnson – 8 mil
Tevez – 22 mil
Barry – 8 mil.


Lucas – 5 mil

Hyypia – free
  Tommy Miller has signed for Sheffield Wednesday on a 2 year contract.

Wednesday have also offered a deal to Released Reading man Scott Golbourne.
  A mate of mine works at the Liberty stadium and the word is that Swansea are lining up Dean Windass to replace Jason Scotland who is on his way to local rivals Cardiff.
