Any SOUTHAMPTON FC News and Rumours?


01 May 2010 22:00:12
It strange how many people know about what is happening at Liverpool, and most of them are n't even liverpool supporters .
Any way some real rumour that just crept up in my head, its 100% true new rumour
If Chelsea beat Liverpool tomorrow expect Fergi to be forced to resign at the end of this season, the Glazers did not like the fact he was not more vocal of his support to them, and the fact united will have nothing but Carling cup ; the owners feel its the perfect chance to remove him; they do not like the power he has in the club and over the supporters .
I know this for a fact ; I have inside information a friend of mine is the toilet cleaner and Rio told him while he was cleaning his nose, and also distant cousin is a gardener for the glazers and they told him, its a fact really its.
Man U prawn 4 SaLaD(no offence just liked the name)


01 May 2010 22:00:40
Westham look set to appoint av grant , he said he has been offered jobs on tv [friday] with this fact in mind in will come boateng, ohara and maybe james. ilan has been offered a year deal. but the big news i, ve heard is that gold has been in touch mu and 2 loan deals are on they are carrick and wes brown. 2 big names are in out green, cole, upson, behrami, kovac+6 fringe all out total 40m.


01 May 2010 21:23:05
"Joe cole to Liverpool ( Chelsea will pay half of his wages ) . Chelsea win tomorrow 2/0 and win the title

done deal"

That is a load of BS. That would be considered illegal by the FA and both clubs would be fined and docked points.

Onto real stories. Man Utd will go french next season with the signings of Yoann Gourcuff and Karim Benzema. Benzema will come as part of a deal that gives Real first refusal on Vidic. Utd will also sign a wide player as back–up to Nani and Valencia. Greek sensation Sotiris Ninis is the preferred option.


01 May 2010 21:23:36
Obviously a lot of people talk un realistic rubbish on here, on a quest for a dream team.
All the teams are gonna move on 3 or 4 players and bring in 3 or 4. Not get rid of 15 and bring in 20, that's stupid.
Here are my suggested REALISTIC transfers for Liverpool this summer.


Out –

Benayoun – £8 Million
Riera – £8 Million
Plessis, Spearing and other fringe players – £6 Million

In's –

Kolarov – £12 Million
Turan – £13 Million
Altintop – Free
Jovanovic – Free

If we have more money from the new sponser then I would love to get Kjaer (Who stated he would like to play for us), and a new centre forward.

01 May 2010 20:53:09

To the fella asking about Aston villa rumours ..they'll go for shaun wright phillips, michael turner and michael owen. I've got insider gossip straight from Martin O'neil.

01 May 2010 21:12:10

Bargain double deal being lined up to sign Muntari and Balotelli from Inter Milan, both have been regarded as surplus at the San Siro next season.

There is truth in the Micah Richards rumour and he has already spoken to Aaron Lennon about moving to London in the summer. Also wanted is Bolton's Gary Cahill although their is a strong reluctance from Bolton to enter negotiations with any club. Regardless of the player, the defensive position is the one area where Redknapp feels Premier League experience is most vital.

Back up to Gomes is a search starting in England. Loach, Westwood, Lewis and Schmeichel are all on Redknapp's radar. The main fear is being priced out of a deal which may leave Schmeichel as the favoured option.

Sandro already signed and Gudjohnsen deal likely to happen too, there will be a right/central defender and a forward brought in for certain.

Keane, Hutton, Jenas, O'Hara all leaving in the summer, possibly Bentley and Crouch or Pavlyuchenko to also leave and Naughton to go out on season long loan again.

From good insider

Liverpool officials in talk with Sven Goran Eriksson representative to takeover from Rafa after The World cup

Sven will jump at the chance and Rafa will leave to Real Madrid ( NOT JUVE ) after Hull game .

01 May 2010 19:56:23
Arsenal to unveil Bordeaux pair Mourianne Chamakh and Yohann Gourcuff before the World Cup begins. The original plan was for Steve Rowley to continue scouting the form of Chamakh but it seems Goucuff has impressed him too and so has gone back to Wenger, who knows all about him, with a glowing reference. And since Arsenal Lack creativity when Talisman Fabregas is missing and the possibility of Fabregas moving on in 2011 to Barca, the frenchman could be the perfect fit to replace him, but in the mean time will partner the Spaniard in the 3 man Arsenal midfield
Arda Turan, captain of Galatasaray, is a transfer target for Arsenal. Wenger is looking to strengthen his team in a bid to improve Arsenal's challenge for the Premiership next season. He hopes to wrap up the deal before the start of this summers World Cup in South Africa.
Seems like Man Ure are sniffing around Steven Pienaar, his agent was at Old Trafford today over a 14 million deal
Leighton Baines to move to Spurs in the summer for 12 mil. Assou–Ekotto has proven to be a liability this season and Baines would be tempted by Champions league football. Baines at left back, Bale in midfield, has goals, pace and assists written all over it!


01 May 2010 20:08:35
Is there any rumours on PNE


01 May 2010 19:07:45
I have to laugh at some of these arsenal rumours, i stumbled across this site while researching transfers and have good informed transfer info on arsenal, wenger has opened discussions with scotty parker over a 8–10 mil deal, he has also had discussions with mario balotelli as eden hazard doesn't want to leave this year, expect balotelli or shaun right phillips as wenger wants to put nasri back in middle, also extended discussions have happened with diarra of real madrid( not the one who used to play for us) and phillipe mexes of roma as he is now 3rd choice and roma are in deep financial trouble however roma are playing hard ball because of champs league money, yohann pele is at a verbal agreement however steklenbergs agent has been contact by gazidas, chamakh is done deal we all know that, wenger has 3 players in 5 posistions he wants so expect 5 in and im guessing fringe players out to try and cover costs


01 May 2010 19:09:51

Mourinho to liverpool . deal done 6 months ago. new owners to anfield in 4 weeks.


01 May 2010 18:30:40
–––––West Ham United–––––––––––––––––––––––––
Zola will definitely be leaving unfortunately. The board have lied about him not wanting to be involved in transfers, and the bid for Dorrens behind his back has pushed him to walk away with his head held high at the end of the season.

The Davids have already agreed on some players to leave as they know of players they can bring in.

Robert Green; £8–10 million
John Spector; £2 million
Danny Gabbidon; £2 million
Matt Upson (If he cannot agree a new 3 year deal); £10 million
Herita Ilunga; £4–5 million
Valon Behrami; £8–12 million
Keiron Dyer: £3 million or best offer
Luis Boa Morte: £3 million
Mido: Loan spell ends
Benni McCarthy: Looking to get back what they spent on him, between £2–5 million.
Ilan: End of Contract

Coming into the team will be a mixture of youth and experience: The cost next to the name is the most the board are willing to spend on the player.

David James; free
Nedium Onuoha; £6 million
Nicky Shorey; £4 million
Tal Ben Haim; £1.5 million
Hayden Mullins; £1 million
Charles N'Zogbia; £8 million
Jamie O'Hara: £7 million
Robbie Keane OR Roque Santa Cruz: £12 million
Carlos Vela: Loan
Benjani: Free


01 May 2010 18:10:44
To the idiot who thinks WHU may sign Beckford for £4m, the lad is out of contract and available on a free and is going Everton anyway. Already done is a deal for Joao Silva and Jan Mucha. There will be an attempt to sign Donovan but apart from that the summer will be spent making sure our best players don't leave by improving their contracts, which is a good way to use our limited resources.



01 May 2010 17:56:42
The porn kings at west ham will eventually piss zola off so much he will walk which is of course what they want no compo.likely manager is m hughes or god forbid the wally with the brolly or curbishley will be back.whoever gets the reigns they will spend big with there own fortune. players most likely are robbie keane david bentley kenwyn jones shaun wright philips fringe players to leave and maybe green and upson depending on the right bids or swap deals

01 May 2010 17:45:22
Strong rumours in milan, Mourinho to leave after the champions league final to Liverpool or Madrid.
The Liverpool sale will take place soon, Benitez will leave, and the new owner would be a real lifelong liverpool fan. All transfers to be decided by the new manager.

Source: A very senior and well connected scout.


01 May 2010 17:44:02

Carew is in discussions but Kamara and Nevland need to be removed off the wage bill first.

Blackpool are set to sign out of contract striker Davide Hayerv, an ex Hungary u21 striker from Ϊjpest FC on a bosman at the end of the current English season beating off interest from Ipswich and Charlton


01 May 2010 16:21:15
Guti is not joining Valencia, he joining a club in the UAE.

Liverpool to sign VDV and are in advanced talks about signing Kjaer and Arda before the World Cup. Apparently Keane said he wouldn't sell Wickham. Don't know if there will be any more signings, it depends on takeover.



01 May 2010 16:30:22

Just like to say i agree with this, Anderson bid was rejected in January before he got injured. Out till the start of next season but once fit he has to prove himself. Regards keepers, i watched the Bayern – Lyon game and didn't think all that much to Lloris, certainly not worth more than 15 million. Does have a lot of potntial but i can see him Barca as he's much better than Valdes. I still United to sign Akinfeev and De Gea.

Also to the lad that put up the Diego Buononette rumour for a 4 mill signing in January 2011, any substance in this or just wishful thinking? He's been one of my favourite players on the last 2 football manager games but i think he'd be a bit small for the Prem.



01 May 2010 16:55:34
Good Mates With A sctorphe utd player and he says that Gary Hooper will sign for celtic and lennon is looking at taking Micky O'Connor Aswell. also jobi mc anuff from reading will join sctorphe.

01 May 2010 15:32:06
who posted this?

''Mon the hoops! keep the faith, we shall overcome''

What an idiot. nuff said. Really can't stand celtic fans, theyre clueless.

Real rumours:

–)Roberto Mancini to get the chop at Man City and replaced by Guus Hiddink although Michael Laudrup is also in with a shout of getting it.

–)Angel Di Maria will join Chelsea aswell as David Silva and Bastian Sweinsteiger. Nicolas Anelka will leave and possibly Drogba depending on the offer.


01 May 2010 14:47:23
Just heard David Silva will goto either Arsenal, Man City, Man U, Chelsea, Liverpool or Spurs.


01 May 2010 14:52:11
Along with Jonjo Shelvey and Raheem Sterling, talks for John Cofie are at an advanced stage, with the striker agreeing terms with Liverpool. His fee should be around 480k. He will be joined by Connor Wickham from Ipswich. Wickham will sign for 6m, but will return to Ipswich until January, with the option of signing for the rest of the season, depending what situation Liverpool are in. Aleksandar Kolarov has also agreed terms with Liverpool. He will sign a contract worth 79k and his transfer fee will be 13m. Milan Jovanovic will be announced at the same press conference as Kolarov. He has signed on a free contract worth 50k per week. Rafael Van der Vaart will join the Anfield club after Florentino Perez's appointment. He would have left sooner but his wife had a medical condition. He will sign for around 8m


01 May 2010 14:52:36
Arsenal in 2010–11:
subotic is long term replacement for gallas, who will stay for 1 more season. campbell will also stay for 1 more season, but silvestre and senderos will be released. traore will be sold, with young brazilian pedro botelho being promoted in his stead.
chamakh is in for free, with vela going out on loan. eduardo is to be given 1 more season to prove himself, otherwise he will be sold next summer. simpson to be sold.
frey to replace almunia in goal. fabianski to go out on loan, szczesny to be no.2 keeper, with mannone 3rd choice.
hazard to replace vela, who is going out on loan. lansbury will be promoted.
if no deal can be reached with blackburn for defensive midfielder Nzonzi, Wenger won't sign anyone in that position. merida to leave for free.


01 May 2010 15:00:30
If Blackpool fail to win promotion to the Premiership, expect a record transfer bid of 600k bid for Gillingham's striker Simeon Jackson, if Blackpool are to win promotion they will set their targets elsewhere


01 May 2010 14:04:00
Will people stop posting about David Silva coming to the premiership , he won't be coming here as he is going to sign for real madrid in exchange for van der vaart, guti and cash

AW said he will buy 2 or 3 this window. Word from within the Emirates is that his targets are
GK – SORENSON, Almunia to stay as No2, Fabiansi and Mannone to go out on loan.Szczesny will be no.3 choice and Carling Cup 'keeper.
CB – HANGELAND, Silvestre, Senderos and Gallas will all leave on a free. Djourou will return, Campbell will sign for another season. Bartley will join 1st team squad.
DFM –MELO, will battle with Song for the role. Song will also play CB.
These are the 3 main targets AW wants in plus
S – CHAMAKH –free agent and EDIN HAZARD – AW rates him VERY highly and is prepared to buy him and 'loan back' for one season
OUT ON LOAN – Vela, Wiltshire, Coquelin, Cruise Eastmond, Watt, Murphy,
SOLD/MOVED ON – Traore, Merida, Barazite,
Gilbert, Randall

Ist team squad 2010/2011:=
SORENSON, Almunia, Szczesny
SAGNA , Eboue
VERMAELEN, Campbell, Bartley
NASRI, Walcott
SONG , Melo, Denilson
FABREGAS, Ramsey, Diaby
van PERSIE, Eduardo
CHAMAKH, Bendtner, Sunu

There is a little concern within the management about the Gunners being a bit short of cover at RB and CB. A utility defender (the like of, for example, Micah Richrds or John O'Shea is additionally pencilled onto AW's list)


01 May 2010 12:55:34

01 May 2010 12:41:57
At 01 May 2010 12:00:37 Goatman Gary tipped
Chelsea to sign Ludovic Guily.

Guily will be 34 by the start of next season. I agree that he will not be at PSG, but Greece or Turkey are far more likely destinations that England. If he were to come to England, Chelsea would certainly not be an option – perhaps Blackburn Rovers who have a manager who has enquired after the player before. Sharkey.


01 May 2010 12:46:43
Arsene Wenger is talking to many potential transfer targets, but the ones in the most advanced stages are Steven Nzonzi of Blackburn and Sebastien Frey of Fiorentina. both are available for around 7m each. Nzonzi would provide vital cover for Alex Song, and Frey, at 30, would be a top class GK addition. he's at an age where he has a good few years left in him, but also where he won't stand in the way of the long term Arsenal no.1, Wojciech Szczesny, for too long.
With only 14m spent on these two players and with Chamakh coming in for free, expect a quality CB to follow suit and also a bid for Eden Hazard. the CB is rumoured to be Neven Subotic for 14m, and Hazard would be bought for £14m and then loaned back to Lille for a season as he wants one more year. This shows £42m spent, ie within the £45m budget.
Furthermore, departing for fees will be Traore(3m), Simpson(4m), Vela(6m) and Almunia(4m), thereby recovering £17m. going for free are Senderos, Silvestre, Merida and Gilbert.
Wilshere, Fabianski, Sunu, Galindo and Nordtveit will be out on loan along with some of the other youngsters. Wellington Silva will join up with the 1st squad in january2011.
FREY Szczesny Mannone
Sagna Eboue Clichy Gibbs Botelho
Gallas Vermaelen SUBOTIC Djourou Campbell
Song NZONZI Eastmond
Fabregas Diaby Denilson Rosicky E–Thomas

Yo! Some of you might remember me from last year, i gave many predictions and most came true. I have sources in the premier league, and i've met Peter Crouch in person.

Here's my current tips..

There has been much discussion about Yoann Gourcuff making the move to England this summer – perhaps to Manchester City. It seems more probable to me that he will stay another year with his current club Bordeaux lining up a move to Chelsea next summer, where he is seen as a possible long–term replacement for Frank Lampard. Sharkey.


01 May 2010 11:51:24
SHOULD rafa stay this summer his 4/5 players will be:

kolarov – 11m
van der vaart – 7m
balotelli (loan)
mata/silva – 18–25m

these are all true
the final 1/2 players will be decided on WC form
players like – shelvey, sterling, wilson, jovanovic etc arent included in this list.

riera, benayoun, aurelio, skrtel and possibly torres/gerrard will leave.

IF rafa leaves all transfers will obviously be decided by the new boss.

torres and gerrard won't both leave this window
but one might with torres being the favourite to go with benitez or to barca.


01 May 2010 11:19:26
Artem Milevskiy of Dynamo Kiev is likely to make a move to Marseille over the summer. However, I would not be surprised to see Paris Saint–Germain declare an interest, and also possibly Spurs, perhaps as an alternative to making Eider Gudjohnsen loan permanent, or perhaps as a replacement for another forward. Sharkey.

FACT Newcastle will be signing:–


Well maybe not this season, well actually its probably never but it's the way they thinking already, seems though they have been promoted, the ego's on them are a joke like they think they gonna be signing alan hutton, sorry but Hutton has already told Steve Bruce he wants to Sign for Sunderland, just depends on that greedy git Daniel Levy off Tottenham. Just a quick note to other teams Bent and Gordon are going nowhere so it's pointless even saying you are signing them. Bruce has said ridiculous amounts of money will get them. Anyway:–

Sunderland Ins:–
Keane or
Crouch both possible
Wright Phillips strongley linked
Figereo always linked depends on Wigan

Sunderland Outs:–
Bardsley unfortunately
O'donovan maybe loan
Jones possibly

I can confirm the rumours of Benitez and Juventus are true. An offered deal of €4M a year after tax for a four year contract, plus a signing fee, plus a huge immediate transfer budget, plus guarenteed budgets for the following three years, plus total control over transfers is after all, not to be dismissed lightly.

He is a torn man – his head is saying go to Italy, buy the best, win trophies, one big pay–day and then retire to the cushy life. His heart however says Liverpool. His family also do not want to quit Merseyside – they are settled here and like being here. They have made very good friends and do not want to leave.

So that is Benitez's dilemma – does he listen to his wallet and his ego, or does he listen to his heart and his family.



01 May 2010 10:14:15
Benitez will announce that he has signed a four year deal with Juventus after the Hull game. His replacment is being slowly lined up by the clubs officials but it the final descion will be made by the new owners when they are brought him. So far the shortlest consist of
Roy Hodgson
Martin O'nell
Slavian Bilic
Cesare Prandelli
Alex Mcleish
Bernd Shuster
King Kenny will take charge of the club and all transfer dealings until new oweners come in. He may stay as manager if the new owners want him. Shock rumour is that Ian Rush might be signed as his assistant or as a striker coach!


01 May 2010 07:52:55
After Sundays game at Anfield expect news of the departure of Rafa Benitez. So please, no more rubbish about players coming in & leaving.


01 May 2010 08:46:59
Heard a real rumour today, forget the talk of Jose being the new Liverpool manager. The man taking the helm from Rafa next season Roy Hodgson. He's the only manager they want that they can afford.

01 May 2010 08:55:35
Liverpool Fc are linked with a move for Balazs Dzsudzsak from PSV for a 10m transfer and 70k per week.

Regarding the post from the undercover spy.

1. TEVEZ will not go to Liverpool he's going to Madrid as he hates back stabbers Cook, Marwood and Mancini.
2. Mancini doesn't want to leave City but the players want him out
3. Rafa going to Juve is a done deal 6 months ago Rafa wants severance from LFC
4. Mourinho will go to Madrid after the WC
5. Manchester City's new manager will be Martin O niel

Are you on medication? Novo to Liverpool!! Stokes to rangers!!!!

Dindan is buying out the remaining year of his contract so he can stay in england and sign for blackburn, where he has already had a medical!

rangers will be lucky to spend 1–2 mil on players in the summer and those will be average spl players who won't demand high wages.

Mon the hoops! keep the faith, we shall overcome

To theturdz speaking who wrote "the steven gerrard rumor is fact he been shagging ronnie whelans daughter". That's one sick thing to say mate. Ronnie Whelan's daughter has a disease called Myasthenia Gravis. Look it up. She's a very ill young lady. What your suggesting is nothing short of scandalous


01 May 2010 04:38:19
Overheard at West Ham yesterday:

Zola is 'absolutely fuming' at the 'old perverts' undermining him at Upton Park.

Curbishley is returning as manager, with Zola off to take over the reigns at Cardiff City once the investment there is complete and only if they are promoted (Dave Jones will leave along with Peter Ridsdale at the end of the season. Have heard a whisper that Jones is set to invest in Stockport County and will move back up to the north west.

Many West Ham players are unhappy with the new owners, and as publicised all but Scott Parker are for sale. However, Parker himself is set for a summer move to Celtic with Robbie Keane and Joey Barton.

West Ham are already being tipped for relegation next season, and you can get a best price of 12/1 on them going down. If they are not in the Premier League for the 2012/13 season, they might not get permission to pay at the Olympic Stadium.

If you thought that West Ham had trouble over Tevez, Joorabchan, Magnus Whatshisname and the Icelandic Banks then as BTO said 'You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet.' From what I hear West Ham's future local derbies could be against Leyton Orient and Dagenham!

This is 100% true, Arsene Wenger is poised to sign David's Silva from Valencia, again this is gospel truth, the silver in question is a nice cutlery set. There is a full set of spoons but one of the forks is missing. One of the knives is a little bent but not as much as Nevilles on field smooch with Scholes!

Ps Thanks for the idea, just running with it!

Celtic are looking into the possibility of signing Sporting's Tonel and Man City's Sylvihno in the hopes of adding some much needed experience to their backline. In addition, the Bhoys are looking to bring in Landry N'Guemo and Diomansy Kamara in after loan spells with the club. It is thought that a total of £6 million would be sufficient to obtain these players' services.

Players on their way out include Zheng Zhi, Giorgios Samaras, Stephen McManus and Shaun Maloney. Zheng Zhi is wanted by Preston North End who are willing to pay £1 million for his services, while Samaras is the subject of a £2.5 million bid by Panathinaikos. Shaun Maloney is wanted by former manager Gordon Strachan, but it is thought that the transfer would require upwards of £3 million which Strachan is looking to invest in his defence with the possible signing of Stephen McManus.


01 May 2010 01:17:19
Players linked with WEST HAM:


All of these players have been linked with moves to West Ham. Im not saying that all of them or some o fhtem are being transferred but all are linked with a move to the club.


01 May 2010 00:39:39
Said this before and I'll say it again, Carra and kenny are taking the reigns at Liverpool.


01 May 2010 00:56:17!.!.!

this is 100% true, arsene wenger is poised to sign david's villa in valencia, this is gospel truth, the villa has five bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms, it has double glazing with air conditioning! the gardens are huge and a deal will be completed within 7–10 days, there is just one snag and that is david must take his garden gnomes with him, apparently wenger is frightened of them as they resemble arshavin!

arsene was quoted as saying "ones enough"

£20million from Standard Chartered + £50million from Selling players like:
Babel £8million
Benayoun £8million
Kuyt £14million
Riera £8million
Aurelio Free
Deadwood players (El zhar, Degen, Plessis, Spearing, Cavalieri etc) £12million

–We should buy:
Aly Cissokho (LB, lifelong Liverpool fan) £10million (suggestion)
Simon Kjaer (CB, lifelong Liverpool admirer) £10million (rumour)
Arda Turan (LW, lifelong Liverpool fan) £15million (rumour)
Joe Cole (RW, would love to join Liverpool and have the chance to put one over Chelski) Free Transfer (rumour)
Gonzalo Higuain (ST, excellent striker being sold at a cut price by Madrid) £20million OR Darren Bent (ST, British striker who would love to carry us back above Tottenham) £20million (Both rumours)
Milan Jovanovich (ST, good back up for LW too) Free Transfer (deal completed)

–£15million has already been put aside to invest into King Kenny's Accademy.
Raheem Sterling, QPR, 15yrs, Right Winger, £2million
Jonjo Shelvey, Charlton Athletic, 18yrs, Centre Midfield, £1.7M

Otamendi (CB, South America) (Asking price of £12million is prob too high)



30 Apr 2010 23:27:31
The rumouers about Tevez to Liverpool are true. Mancini who has already been told his 6 month contract will not be extended has already agreed a deal in principle to take over from Rafa Benitez with the new owner Mohammed bin Rashid al–Maktoum who will be announced as the new owner on June 1st. Mancini is setting up a deal to take Tevez with him to Liverpool, Tevez has already handed in his transfer request last Monday and expects his wishes to be granted. There is a stumbling block at the moment as Jose Mourinho who will be the new manager of Man City has been told of this and has told Man City CEO Gary Cook that he want to be involved in all the deals of who comes in and out of the club, at this moment everything has been put on hold untill Mourinho take over at City and Mancini at Liverpool. We expect Tevez to line up in the red of liverpool along side Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard next season.
Undercover spy!!

Smirnoff Red you must be out of your mind. Villa will not sign for Arsenal for 4 very good reasons.
1). He has always stated he would not come to the Premier League
2). Arsene Wenger would not pay 40 million for him
3). He is 29 years old and we all know Mr Wenger would like some mature players, but 40 million for a 29 year old is not Arsene's way.
4). You will not pay his wages of 200k a month period. If you did Cesc would want the same and many others besides.

Villa will be at Barcelona or Real Madrid period, they are fighting it out despite what you read here.


30 Apr 2010 23:09:33
The takeover at Liverpool is entering its final stages. The interesting thing is that there are still two parties involved, even at this late stage of negotiations. It is expected that early next week, the negotiating parties will each give their 'final offer'. These will then be looked at by Martin Broughton along with Christian Purslow and they will make a decision based on which offer best suits the club.
No–one knows who these parties are other than those who are very close to the deal and as such, no information is available on who will be the manager next season (though it isn't looking good for Rafa as he has not been assured of his position, or even acknowledged by the chairman).
What I do know is that the offer that will be accepted is the offer that benefits the club most.NOT the Americans. Stadium funding is a big part of negotiations, but so is the ability to provide funds for transfers season upon season (irrespective of economy).
The deal should be completely tied up by late June, maybe early July, thus, there WILL be funds for transfers at Anfield this summer. probably fairly significant funds!!
The future is certainly looking bright for the red half of Liverpool.
