Football Rumours Archive November 19 2006


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Being a "yank" and all I find it hillarious that a lot of rumours concerning Freddie Adu keep coming up. All you ManU fans that are looking forward to seeing him on your team will be sorely dissapointed if he makes the trip over the big pond. He is a good prospect, but a below average Premiership player at best. Don't get me wrong, for the USA he's shows great promise, but he'll be keeping benches warm in England for a long long time.The major clubs in la Liga will go English next summer. Both Barcelona and Real Madrid will offer Liverpool something in the region of 25-30m for captain Steven Gerrard. He might, just might be tempted this time. Barca will also go for Frank Lampard anyway, offering Chelsea 15-20m plus Deco in order to prise the player away. Expect the Spanish champions to bid for Micah Richards too if they manage to acquire Gerrard or Lampard(or both. .): something in the region of 10m. He is seen as the more solid, defensive replacement for Belletti at right-back.To the person who said you were burkes cousin there's no wat he'll sign for celtic i went to school with chris and last time i spoke to him he had enough with the sectarianism that goes with scottish football he'll sign for someone in england. if he was goin to sign for celtic he would've done so when he played with them not now and his dad/agent will get more money if he goes down south.To all those who say burke wil sign for celtic this is ludicrous. despite his father being a celtic fan, and his agent, dusnt mean he will sign. burke knows full well what would happen to him, ie kenny millers house gettin burned down after signin a pre-contract with celtic. and furhtermore his house wasnt even finished construction.

rangers to sign brown not thompson.

rangers monitoring the pressley situation closely.United and the Gunners are allegedly set to do battle for Ajax striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar when the transfer window reopens in January. Mauro Camoranesi, Daniele de Rossi and Andrea Pirlo look like possabilities to join Old Trafford after great success in the world cup, Scottish goalkeeper Gordon has man u's eyes drawn to him looking for a possible transfer, although the gunners might swoop in before them.

LIAMoChris Burke is not signing for Celtic. Yes he was a Celtic supporter but that means nothing these days and the wee guy is injury prone and no where near good enough to get in the Celtic team if he was to sign. Gone are the days when Rangers have any players Celtic would be interested in. Strachan also knows he does not need either Brown or Thompson from Hibs as where would they play? They are certainly not better than what Celtic have so why waste money on either of them and leave them sitting next to Pearson and Riordan. One of those two is definately out in January, most likely Riordan back to Hibs. Tymoshchuk will sign in the summer to complete Celtic's midfield to replace Lennon. James Beattie is more likely to come to Celtic than waste away at Newcastle or some other disintegrating English club as is Beckham, who will definately go to America in a few years but not when he is still able to play football.

LIAMoExpect a possable by move Arsenal 4 goal keeper Paul Robinson if Arsenal are unable 2 sign Yohann pele in january .Also expect Diaby 2 leave arsenal in january or at end of the season as arsenal have 2 many midfielders .This is the Kicker journalist. Now that Real Madrid have signed Marcelo and are closing in on Gonzalo Higuain of River and Fernando Gago of Boca Juniors, their focus in the January transfer window will be to rid themselves of players who are disrupting the emerging team chemistry. Cassano will most likely move to Juventus, but on loan in a deal. If Trezeguet is sold, Juventus will look to make the move permanent. Emerson looks set to sign for AC Milan only months after moving to Madrid, though I don't understand where he fits in behind Gattuso and Pirlo. Ancelotti is reconsidering the bid, however, because Milan are having greater difficulty scoring goals. In fact, there have been preliminary talks between Real and Milan over Ronaldo, according to our sources, although the player will almost surely prefer a move to former club Inter. Madrid will assess the team in the summer and renew their efforts at signing either Kaka or Fabregas, perhaps even Ballack if his form at Chelsea doesn't improve. They will also renew their efforts to sign Cristiano ROnaldo and Daniel Alves of Sevilla, although Capello prefers to remain loyal to Cicinho through his injury. Calderon would ideally like his team in September 2007 to be Casillas in goal, Marcelo at left back, Cannavaro and Ramos at center back, Daniel at right back, Diarra, Gago, and Kaka rotating at the two center midfield positions, Reyes, Ronaldo, Robinho, and Raul rotating at the winger/attacking midfiel positions, and Van Nistelrooy, Higuain, Robinho, and Raul rotating at the striker positions. Helguera and Guti will remain in the squad as platoon players, as might Pablo Garcia and Diogo when they return from loan.Reading Targets:

1)Sidwell will sign a long term contract, after being impressed with the way Reading have performed this season.

2)A 2nd choice goalie will be signed in January, as Stack is rubbish and Adam Federici is un-proven. Possibly Roy Carroll

3) Steve Coppell will sign another striker in january, possibly 2, as he is still not sure when Kitson will return, and Lita is under-performing. Jeremie Aliadiere and maybe Healy/Nugent.

4)Another central midfilder will be signed on loan in January. Alan Smith from Man united, could also be used as a striker.

Come On U'R's Iam A Loyal Royal!Arsenal Rumours and News:

1)No-one will sign in January, as Wenger has already said, but fringe players for example Jeremie Aliadiere and possibly Lauren will be sold on to pasture new.

2) Im the summer Micah Richards,Gareth Bale and Curtis Davies, will be signed for 12m,6m and 7m as Wenger wantas to build a good young youthful Britsh team for the future:


F.Muamba,C.Davies,G.Bale,M.Richards. Along with overseas talents such as:

F.Merida,R.Fonte,N.Bendtner,V.van den Berg,Denilson,A.Lupol and V.Mannone.

3)Possibly in the summer Lehmann may return to Germany, meaning Wenger may bid for Buffon if Juventus do not get promoted. However Buffon may instead go to Real Madrid, resulting in Casillas wanting to leave and Wenger may decide he is the cheaper and better option.

4)Expect Arsenal to win the Champions League and finish 2nd in the Premiership just behind Man Utd, with Chelsea finishing 3rd and Mourinho being sacked. The F.A. Cup is hard to tell who will win, but the Carling Cup final will be Arsenal's RESERVES against Chelsea or Tottenham.Lomana Lua Lua will leave Pompey in January, on a loan till the end of the season. Plymouth Argyle of the Championship are leading the chase, and it is thought that Lua Lua would welcome a move to the south-coast club. Preston and Cardiff are also interested.To the people slating arsenal and sayin stuff like arsene wenger won't sign any one in january as he publicly stated. ok he stated this but in the past he has changed his mind and he is still allowed to change his mind and secondly people sayin arsenal have no money well, keith edelman PUBLICLY STATED we have around 50 million as its publicly stated it must be true. So if arsene wenger can publicly state no transfers in jan y do people automaticly assume arsenal are lying when they state they have 50 million to spend. Anyways arsenal to sign gareth bale for 7m, micah richards for not sure, huntelaar for 11 million and finally reo-coker and ribery for 10 million and 15 million respectively, these could happen in january but most likely in summer.I AM RONALDHINO'S DAD N HES COMING TO CARDIFF!!

Letizi - FREE

Rodriguez - £400k

Buffel - £2m

Novo - £300kManU are on the brink of signing Marik Hamsik and are in talks of Dejan Stankovic deal.Ajax forward Klass Jan Huntelaar will reject the advances of Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea in January to finish the season in his native Holland. Huntelaar has been linked with the big three in the Premiership since he joined Ajax, but wants to end the season in the Eredivisie to help Ajax win back the title from PSV Eindhoven. Next summer it's likely he'll move on, but coach Henk Ten Caat will demand £17.5m for the international striker seen as 'the new Dennis Bergkamp'. Arsenal could be front runners to sign him as Bergkamp is an influential figure for Huntelaar, plus they already have Robin van Persie at the Emirates who would help him settle in north London. Manchester United are interested in taking the young striker to Old Trafford to become Ruud van Nistelrooy's long term successor, but Sir Alex Ferguson knows he has Wayne Rooney, Louis Saha, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Alan Smith to choose from as it is, plus the possibility of Freddy Adu if he impresses during his trial. Chelsea are interested, but are more likely to pursue a move for Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres.Brown n thompson going to celtic in summer with beckham and kadlec signing pre contracts. alan thompson leaves with pearson maloney and marshall following. This came from a freind hoo is kenny millers cousinArsenal will complete the signing of Nigel Reo Corker by the end of next week. My mates father works for the catering divison in the East Stand and said its a done deal.QPR are to sign Jimmy Smith permanently from Chelsea for a fee of around £850,000. He will never get into the Chelsea first team. At QPR he has gauranteed first team football. Also, Sheffield United are looking to sign yet another striker and have scouts in Scotland. No names have been mentioned as yet so Watch This Space. Manchester United to sign Klass Jan

Huntelaar from Ajax for £14m. This is much cheaper than Torres, and the Dutch game is very similar to that of the Premiership style so he would settle well. This will happen next summer as Alex Ferguson wants all his players available for the Champions League.
