arbeloa 9m
x alonso 19m
dosenna 6m
pennant 1m
benyoun 5m

money in = 40m

trust me on this 1 !!!!!!!!!
  I understand Man Utd have deals in place to purchase the following players:

DODO – £6m (Join in January 10 with Ljakjic)
DOUGLAS COSTA – £15m (Awaiting W/Permit Expected by July 6th)
KARIM BENZEMA – £32m (Will undergo a medical on July 3rd)

All the fee's appear to have been agreed and await confirmation. Trust me this is no Football manager wish list. These are the words being heard here at the carrington training complex.

No Aguero, Silva, Villa, Nilmar etc. . . (paper talk)
  Sunderland to confirm this week 2 strikers for a total of £25m coming up from london going by the names of Darren Bent & Carlton Cole
  I work near the stoke city michelin training ground and i haveseen obafemi martins training with the potters!
there already has been speculation about martins moving to the brit this summer so looks very promising for the potters!expect fee to be aroud the 6m mark
  Arshavin to leave Arsenal. arsenal originally declared interest in ribery and benzema to satisfy the likes of Arshavin and Fabregas, but will cash in on arshavin and use the £25mil from his sale and £25mil(approx)from sale of Adebayor to complete signing of benzema or ribery, also a dm such as cana.

Im not a fantasist claiming to be an insider, just my opinion.
  Don't let the 1 year contract extension fool you.
Melo is still an Arsenal target, the extension was the only way to get a buy–out clause in the contract, which will net them a little extra cash.
Melo will be an Arsenal player.
  ––––––––––––––––SWFC NEWS––––––––––––––––––

Tudgay is not going to burnley as they don't want to bid any higher than 2 million for him and wednesday want 3 million.

France is on trial at Wednesday and will sign for them after a full week with the team.

Victor anichebe will sign for SWFC very soon after some terms have been agreed in the last couple of days.

Darren Potter will eventually sign for wednesday for an undisclosed fee!
  To whoever posted this rumour:

'Cardiff City are to be investigated by the FA over payments made to the 'political charity' Common Purpose.

They will not be able to buy/sell anymore players until the FA is confident that their finances are in order and that no fraud has taken place.

There could be further bad news for the Bluebirds, with David Jones joining Preston as their new manager and Peter Ridsdale has failed to find a new buyer for the club – meaning that it could be a very difficult season indeed for them.

Ex–Cardiff City Employee.'

1) This is a rumours board mate – it's not affiliated with politics in anyway. If Cardiff have broken any laws about payments then I'm sure that they will be punished. However, I don't see anything on the news about this (and if it were right it would be a lead story!) so not quite sure what you're getting at. If Common Purpose is a charity, or has charitable status, then I'm not sure any laws have been broken as all (or most) clubs give to charity anyway :s

2) David Jones is staying at Cardiff – why would he leave for a team like Preston? (no disrespect to them) Okay, he may have his roots there (in the north–west) but he's settled in South Wales now and I'm sure he'd rather go for promotion with a team that has a more realistic chance of going up rather than Preston who in my opinion will be lucky to make the play–offs.

3) Investment – I think this is the only thing that you MAY be right on, but if Cardiff don't find a buyer it's not the end of the world for them, and they certainly won't be following Southampton et al and going into administration. Talks were recently held with American investors, I believe, and Peter Ridsdale has been to the states recently so maybe talks are ongoing with new investors.

Ok, my rumour is that Sam Ricketts is going to rejoin Swansea City.

  Exclusive: Benzema is to reject a move to Manchester United to work with French boss Arsene Wenger, Adebayor will be sold to Milan £25m and Benzema will be brought £32m 4year deal £75,000, also Lorik Cana will be signed on loan with a £10m agreed price for 2010 summer.

The Emirates rat
  WOW yet another ashley young to everton rumour. If this actually happens I will quite happily sit in the centre circle of goodison park and eat my steel toe cap boots.
Also " EDWIN HAZARD TO ARSENAL " is he the simple brother of Eden.

Any hoo on too some rumours. .

Tuncay also to villa with a deal involving; harewood(perm) and Garry Gardner (craigs highley rated younger brother) on loan plus 4 million.
Maxi Rodriguez off to spuds
Hetinga and veluso to lfc after they loose alonso and macherano (ha).
Apocoliptic battle between europes top clubs (no that doesn't include BCFC) for brazilian wonder bollox Taison.
RVN will move to Munich.
Oh and I almost forgot TEVEZ TO VILLA (don't ask me why I just have a funny feeling that i've managed to irationally justify to myself).
  Sheff Utd Rumours:

Jermain Beckford (£3M)
Andrew Surman (if wolves complete a deal for someone with more prem experience) (£1M)
Kyle Ried (Free)

  (The following is 100% true)

. .Contacts in Spain have revealed that Arsenal and Liverpool are going head to head for the signature of a Spanish player from Valencia. It is not Villa, but is either Silva or Mata. The bids are between the region of £15M–£25M and they are being taken seriously by the Valencia board. Benitez wants to keep hold of Mascherano and Alonso, but if he loses them then he will sign Cana and Martinez as replacements. Some more youngsters will soon be headed to Anfield, expect a Hungarian and an Argentinian youngster playing in the youth team next season.
That's all for now. .

  I am an arsenal fan and all the rumours about ribery are complete nonsense.however the benzema transfer looks like it is possible.also i no alot of arsenal fans feel the same and that is that we need toure and gallas to stay!!

Benzema–30Mill + bendtner
Lorik Cana– 9mill
vermeulan– 10mill

Gallas–6mill–Juventus or Milan or PSG

In Arsene We Trust

  Ronaldo coming out

Ronaldo last night revealed too a close friend that his meeting with Paris Hilton was all a misunderstanding. He said "I thought it was Perez Hilton who wanted to see me"
Ronaldo's friend told the media that Ronaldo went home with tears in his eyes, he really wanted to know if Perez liked his newest purse.
  Listen to all the liverpool fans saying they are getting villa not happening as ive heard from my source in madrid that real have made a 45m bid to valencia but have asked valencia to keep it hush hush until villa signing and also u will not get aguero either because he has said he wants to stay with athletico for atleast 1 more season and i am a arsenal fan and i no ur gonna say oh ur biast because u don't want them to join liverpool but in all i would love to see it happen because i would love to watch them week in week out in the premiership maybe u might get aguero next season and now get to these arsenal rumours well ur gonna say that theres no chance we will get ribery or benzema but to be honest we have a better chance to get these than any of the teams after them because next year world cup and they wanna be playing week in week out and at arsenal that is the only team they will be able to do this because at chelsea ribery won't be able to play every game because of the amount of wingers they have and he will get dropped now and then same at man u and definitly same at real madrid and ive heard from my source at emirates that ribery and benzema will definitly be at emirates next season also sakho will also be joining and he will be anounced as a arsenal player after emirates cup and also i no alot of my gunners are gonna complain about this but flamini is returning as part of the adebayor deal + 17m

Gooner N1

  Fulham are looking to buy the Nigerian international striker, KALU UCHE from UD Almería.
  I've just heard tht either Madrid or United might announce a new signing today or tomorow, not very sure about it tho, its likely to end speculation on Benzema's future since its very likely that if its not him at Madrid then he'll be mostly joining United, also Benzema's teammate Pjanic has been quoted saying Benzema will be joining United soon fr €45 million. also in a recent interview Benzema has denied ever saying Madrid was his favourite/dream club, he was misquoted by Spanish Paper Marca, who are known fr being very unreliable.
he also goes on to say in the interview that he watches EPL a lot and mostly watches Man Utd play. you can find this article on the web or you can check the Man Utd forums where a screenshot of it is given.

  Arsene has been very busy so far.

Vela (loan)
Ramsey (loan)

Cana (agreed)
Henry (to help his understudy develope)
Vermahlen (done)

  Gojko Kacar, 21 year old Serbian who currently plays for Hertha Berlin, to sign for Liverpool as an all–round midfielder in the region of £10m as a fee.
Described by some "scouts" as the next Steven Gerard/Roy Keane, looks like a born winner.

Karim Benzema to sign for a fee of £38m in the next few days.
  Scott Loach to Tottenham–???
Kelvin Davis to Astonvilla–???
Senderos to Astonvilla–???
Vucinic to Tottenham–17m plus Puvyuluchenko
Owen to AstonVilla/Everton–???
Jo to Everton–1year loan deal
Tuncay to AstonVilla–5m
Zarate to ManC–10m–17m
Benzema to Man U–45m if Pjanic is telling the truth.
Moutinho to Man U–15–22m
  Chelsea have signed Zhirkov, Turnbull and Sturriage. Maicon is very close to joining Chelsea. Ribery deal is 50/50 at the moment, as Chelsea are to offer Bosingwa and 30m for him. Hopefully Pato can rejoin his former boss, but it looke unlikely unless Milan change their mined if Chelsea give a huge offer about 50–60m.
Zhirkov 18m
Turnbull Free
Sturriage 3m
Maicon 25m
Pato 50–60m

Deco 8m
Carvalho 10m
Pizarro 10m
Shevchenko 5m

And to the rumour that Essien is going to Man Utd is rubbish, why would he leave, he has plenty of African friends at Chelsea, Man Utd have NONE! Think again that bloke who said he would leave. idiot.
  With the signing of Valencia, Fergie has started splashing out the transfer fund. Up next will be the following bids, obviously some may end up going higher, or not be accepted at all, but this is Fergie's plan for the week. .

Benzema 35mil
Aguero 45mil
Robben 9mil

Depending on the results of these bids, other players may be considered. . .Also, Fergie announced yesterday that Nani will not be moving this offseason, and will be given a full chance to claim a spot on the wing.
  !!!!!––––– NOTTINGHAM FOREST UPDATE –––––!!!!!

WESTWOOD HAS SIGNED!!! £1.8MIL!! Coventry must really be in trouble now!! I can't beleive it's gone through but the take it or leave it offer was accepted on Tuesday evening and the contract talks took less than 3 hours last night!

Expect a £6mill spree to be announced today at the City Ground (wednesday) with Westwood £1.8, Gunter PERMANENT £3.4 and Jones £800K. Not sure about what agreement we finally reached with Jones as my source was unsure if earlier reports about £15,000perweek were accurate!
