Football Rumours Archive June 20 2006


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

for those of you who say Mascherano will not come to man utd because or abramovich's connection to corinthians...that is why he WILL be coming...negotiations began in Feb on a result, Utd get the 12mm plus the rights for Mascherano for 7.25mm...and he comes only as a defensive midfielder instead of Gattuso..look to the ivory coast for ''Keano's'' position.

CHELSEA NEWS!!! Mourinho so impressed with van persie in world cup that he is considering a cheeky bid for him he likes the way him and robben can pop up anywhere on either wing. is possible wright-phillips could be offered to the gooners cos wenger was in for him before. van persie could be tempted cos he is still a sub at gooners and wenger is unsure of his temperament. how do i know? u heard it here first!!

Fergie is going to show he is open to formation changes this summer with his transfer purchases...Ruud, although a great poacher, is not mobile and can't keep up with the way United are trying to play and therefore will be sold to make room for Fernando Torres (24mil spread over three years). This is where Fergie is going to get interesting with Saha partnering Torres up front, and rooney and ronaldo free to move around in a similar way to Ronaldinho, Messi and Deco swap positions and make runs off of each other for Barcelona. Riquelme will be brought in to spread the ball to all of the attacking talent, and a holding midfielder will be used to protect this attacking formation. Carrick is possible as Diarra is making huge wage demands despite Lyon's agreement on a 18mil transfer fee. Yet, most likely is Machereno as it would give the team an Argentian connection from def thru midfield that has worked remarkably on the international level. Expect Fergie to double up on this defensive midfield position and buy a cheaper player such as Petit in case he wants to play a more defensive formation with two def mids and rooney up front.

i am good friends with darren bent and he`s told me that liverpool have put in a bid of around 7.5millon but carlton have rejected the bid but he said he wanted to go to lierpool and liverpool only

ashley cole is not going anywhere, he will have signed a new contract by january too. if he was ever to leave then he would go abroad, not to chelsea, so lets all just calm down. chelsea know this, it's why they are going for carlos/lalm

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS!! In a cafe in a posh part of london i saw Arsene Wenger talking to a man who i no to be none other than Fernando Torres' agent! They chatted for ages and shook hands at the end! TORRES TO ARSENAL!

BIRMINGHAM CITY NEWS!!! Blues news is that we are swapping emile heskey for jason roberts as he reckons he could score more goals in the championship. Chris commons ( 500k ) and Tom huddleston on loan. This will give the blues plenty of midfield options.

Striker options: Mcleod, Tyson, both for less than 1mil

also expect one suprise signing after the world cup not specfic as yet


Players to leave will be:

Vieira, trezeguet/ibrahimivic, buffon to arsenal

thuram to man utd

del piero to Roma

Zebina to tottenham

Nedved to sparta prague

Emerson to real madrid

Zambrotta to chelsea

Cannavaro to Newcastle

Cambiasso to Liverpool

Camoranesi to Bayern Munich

Stuart Pearce is being left frustrated by the man city board at his lack of funds. The city board are telling him if he wishes to buy he has to sell first, but with the city squad very thin on the grond as it is pearce can't afford to sell, so he is therefore looking for free transfers or players with little value, which is very difficult in the world cup year with all players gaining in value with there performances. Names been mentioned recently include Helder Postiga for 3mil, but this is unrealistic as we dont have that money and pearce wouldnt spend that much on a former premiership flop. Looks like pyscho will have to make do with what he has got, but be warned look out 4 players such as Micah Richards, Daniel Sturridge and Ishmael Miller, these are gonna star next season! BLUE ARMY 4 LIFE! ! !

expect everton to make a bid to sign joey barton, as moyes was impressed with his performances early on in the season. He may tempt city with a 2-3 mill bid, barton would earn around 25k or 30k a week.

Latest News

Tim Cahill to sign for Utd for 9.milion mid July, Everton will look to Graveson who is available and also look for another striker some people are saying Jeffers is coming back but Moyes sees that as a backward step.Definatly leaving is McFadden who will go to Celtic.

At Anfield things are pretty much sorted Kuyt deal off he is going to Newcastle. Still not certain Bellamy will sign this depends on the David Villa deal but Rafa will surprise all Reds fans late July with his final transfer of the summer. The final peice in the jigsaw.

Well my dad works over at the spurs training ground and he sed spurs have strong talks with torres and also duff from chelsea but they will both cost alot of money which spurs have because of the new sponser but it still wnt b enuf so c davids,Michael Carrick and Jermaine Jenas this is 100% true. Also spurs have put a 25million price tag on little aaron lennon so all u man u fans unlucky

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp is getting desperate to sign big name players and Sol Campbell and Glen Johnson now top his list with Redknapp also after Curtis Davies but will only move for him if the Campbell deal falls through. He wants Petrov still and will amazingly tie up a deal to bring Shaun Wright-Phillips on loan and Henri Camara for £4 million. If the SWP loan cant be agreed then Redknapp will move for Whitehead or Milner or Pennant. It is true that Redknapp also wants to bring in 34 year old RIVALDO although even Bolton are interested and he is quite happy in Greece but Redknapp might offer a tempting deal! Im unsure whether it would be Campbell or Davies who would come but i have assumed Davies for now although Arsenal are likely to get him.


<.> Curtis Davies - West Brom - £6 million

<.> Glen Johnson - Chelsea - £4 million

<.> Stilian Petrov - Celtic - £6 million

<.> S.W-Phillips - Chelsea - LOAN

<.> Henri Camara - Wigan - £4.2 million




--------------LUA LUA----CAMARA-------------


Aussie and Everton star Tim Cahill will move on to join Man Utd for a fee of 8 or 9 mil. Tim Cahill has stated that he wants to remain in the EPL so rumours for a move to Inter and Valencia will not go thru.

Van Nistelrooy will not be parting as he has had a talk with SAF and they have made up.

Man City are going to attempt to sign Daniel Van Buyten, who played on loan at city a few years ago. Also city are after jamie fleet, a young star who plays for chesterfield. The fee is likely to be 50k.

According to the press in Croatia, Zinedine Zidane has agreed a one year deal to join Dinamo Zagreb. I know he's said that he's chucking it in after the World Cup and I still think he will, but this is a pretty creditable rumour so I thought I'd post it anyway.

Sheff Utds top targets:

Mikael Forsell £2.5m

Lee Hendrie £500k

Jason Koumas £1m

Spurs Ins & Outs!!!


Berbatov £10.9m. Done

Pekhart £600,000

Dervitte Undisclosed. Done

Ekotto Undisclosed. Done

Zokora £9m.

Duff £5.5m.

Trabelsi Free

Aimar £6m

Total £32m


Fulop £400,000

Davenport £1.7m

Davids Release

Carrick £16m

Total £18.1m

Spurs already had £20m from last season plus another £20m for new kit sponsors MANSION and around £5m for Puma, so all in all there is a budget of £60m but Spurs never like to spend anywhere near there budget, so expect another £20m to be spent.

Also Jol wants cover for every position as we will be playing alot more games no we are in Europe. Team next year.....













Subs: Cerny, Huddlestone, Tainio, Routledge, Jenas, Keane, Pekhart

Good News Man Utd Fans!

Torres will be joining after the World Cup linking up with Rooney and Ruud to make one of the most feared strike forces in history. Lining up in midfield will be Mascherano and Riquelme they will create good link up play between midfield and strike. If Riquelme bid fails Carrick will be next in line along with Ribery, the latter being the more likely of the two. Diarra will not come as he is to expensive and will just turn out to be another Essien and no one needs that! Kerlon will not be coming as those reports were purely fabricated expect him to go to a spanish side. With a few quality signings we will gain what is rightfully ours! the Premiership!

ARSENAL NEWS Arsenal will make a suprise bid for Michael Carrick?Carrick wanted to join Arsenal before he signed for Spurs.Franck Ribery is almost a done deal along with Fernando Gago(boca juniors).The striker to replace Dennis Bergkamp will not be Torres,Adriano,Zigic or Trezeguet it will be either Javier Saviola or Zlatan Ibrahimovic(either will cost around £6million as Juve owe Arsenal money).Arsene Wenger is very keen on signing Jeremy Menez(sochaux).AW has around £25million plus the money from sales likely to be Campbell,Lauren,Aliadiere,Cygan and Smith?So to all of the people saying there is no money a spending kitty of around £38.5million could be availible.

Liverpool WILL NOT be buying any of these spanish stars like Torres and Villa. LFC fans will have to look closer to home and it has been reported that Wigans Camara has been stalling on contract talks ahead of the news that lFC is interested. Cisse the flop has been injured again and cant see us selling him to anyone over the price of £6 million. Alves will slip through our hands like Aguero did and so we will bid for chimbonda as he would be ideal. Crouch has secretly dissapointed Benitez with his form last season and will be given another season to prove himself or will be shipped off far away. Viduka is an option but he is aging and we already of Fowler to play that bit part role. Expect younger attackers to come in but not Defoe or SWP, but instead Pennant and Luke Moore.




In the heat of the world cup Arsenal football club are looking to expand on their ageing midfield and attack. The buzz around the grove is that Gilberto and Freddie could be on they're way out. Making way for Portugese wing/midfielder Senna and Hollands Van Der Vart. Both would come at a substantial cost, however it will be no suprise if Arsenal put forward some sort of bid. Also, in the reserves news, young Sydney FC midfielder Mark Milligan has caught the eye of Gunners scouts and has been offered a 6 month loan/trial. The Aussie is currently part of the Australian World Cup squad in Germany. Lastly, it is old news that Sol Campbell has been unhappy at Arsenal during their last term, and a likely replacement will come within in the form of Phillipe Senderos, however Wenger is looking for another fullback and likes the looks of Real Madrid youngster Sergio Ramos, again he may be out of the price range but there is genuine interest there from Arsenal. If you don;t want to take these "rumours" seriously then suit yourself. Next season when some of these changes take place, you will see what I had told you months earlier

My mate has just come back from holiday in Majorca, and Kevin Nolan was promoting at a kids football session, and he told my mate he's desperate to play for Liverpool. Also my mate got chatting to Luke Young's brother, (he plays for bournemouth), he reckons Luke will be leaving Charlton, with West Ham and his old club Spurs interested. He also thinks that Darren Bent will leave Charlton, again Spurs and Liverpool vying for his signature.

the gers fans need to get a grip, the big name signings r just fantasy. they will not spend more that 2mil on a player. they r reading 2 much into their chairmans hype.

the hoops 2 buy the 2 czechs,kadlec n jarosik, jimmy,a bhoy from Japan,tommy g, sno, thomson fae hibs and some1 from the ivory coast.petrov will go 4 bout 5.5 to 6.5mil. mone the hoops.

young matt holmes is rumoured to have joined liverpool. so has david villa


These are the possible transfer targets for prem clubs-----

LFC=Villa,Nolan (bid placed)


AFC=Yaya Toure,Ribery

Watford expect to put the finishing touches to a number of moves prior to the conclusion of the World Cup. Manager Adrian Boothrod is keen to get new faces in before the full squad come back for pre-season training on July 10th.

Boothroyd is to make former loanee, Chris Eagles, his first signing of the summer from Manchester United as a loan with a view to a permanent move. He is also to move for Ugo Ehiogu from Middlesborough for £500,000 on a 2 year deal.

Boothroyd has seen bids for QPR's Danny Shittu, Leed's Matthew Kilgallon and Claude Davis of PNE turned down.

to the united fan who said thank god saf is leaving u r obviously not a real man united fan. any way mascherana riquelme and torres all definitly signing with cahill carrick and villa back ups also lennon possibility





It'd have to be Japan's Alex

My uncle works at OT as part of the youth team set up. Torres is a done deal, RVN is NOT leaving and Riquelme coming is a load of rubbish-fergie got his fingers burnt with Veron and Riquelme is much the same player who couldnt hack the pace of the prem and fergie knows that. In midfield nothing has been finalised and there is a couple of players out of a shortlist of about 10. Best bet Mascherano and Gattuso

Rafael Benitez has enquired at juventus over a possible swap deal involving David Trezegeut and Bruno Cheyrou. An initial £8 million and Cheyrou is thought to be considered as the starting pitch.

With news that Darren Huckerby may be leaving Norwich for Sheff Utd, Nigel Worthington will make a bid for Chris Brunt from Sheffield Wednesday. Paul Sturrock may be interested in a swap deal including Dickson Etuhu.






Expect to see a renewed bid for Ryan Taylor from Norwich this summer. He chose wigan over Norwich last summer, but has not seen much 1st team football due to the emergence of Chimbonda. Also, Norwich have made an approach for Chris Sutton on a pay as you play basis and are not preparted to stretch further than that for him, expect to also see a tall target man and a Right Midfielder arrive at carrow road with around £1.5m being spent on them. One option being targeted, is a £1.5m joint bid for Luton Duo Carlos Edwards and Steve Howard. Rob Green will now not be leaving, as Norwich rejected an approach from Arsenal amongst others, unless they got theo walcott on loan for the season in return. Now he is injured, the interest has died down, at least until January. Norwich's team targeted for next year, will be: Green/Gallacher , Taylor, Shackell, Doherty, Drury, Edwards, Etuhu, Safri, Huckerby, Earnshaw, McKenzie/Howard

To all of you who are saying Jenas is unhappy at Spurs...tosh! He is staying because he loves the club and he really enjoys working with Martin Jol. Also Robben is joining Spurs for £12 million after the world cup as Chelsea will be getting rid of a few players for as much as they can get to try and recoup some of the money they have spent that they did not need to. Duff will not be going to Spurs and Lennon will not be leaving...sorry to all of you Man Utd fans who were hoping to get a new GOD! Also Carrick will stay and dont be surprised to see Tottenham put bids in for all or most of the players leaving Italy's Serie A due to the major scandal. Last but not least... Zokora to Spurs for £6 million what a signing he looks amazing and when he is no longer in the World Cup he will make contact with Martin Jol via his agent.

Come on you Spurs!!!

Corinthians midfielder Javier Mascherano will snub a move to Manchester United and Arsenal in favour of a £14m move to Inter Milan. The Argentine would be willing to move to England, Spain or Italy, but would make Inter his preference ahead of any other European side.

Juventus forward Alessandro Del Piero will leave the Stadio Delle Alpi this summer, whether the Serie A champions are relegated or not. Del Piero is behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Adrian Mutu and David Trezeguet in the Juve pecking order and is up for a move elsewhere. He wouldn't want to play for another Italian side, so I'd expect a move to the Premiership, Bundesliga or La Liga to materialise. Werder Bremen could be a surprise move, though Liverpool, Fulham, Manchester City and Osasuna have all reportedly been credited with an interest.


remember when i told u about the ya ya toure transfer rumour. Him goin to arsenal its true!

He has signed but not publicly a 4-year deal at the emirates stadium for around 35 grand a week.

The transfer is thought to be around the 7-11 million asking price from the Big Greek team Olympiakos.The transfer will not be announced till after the world cup.Arsene Wenger has sealed the deal before he attracts interest from other big teams.CALLUM MC

Radoi to Portsmouth £7M

its been reported that juve will be fined a massive 12million for the match fixing scandal meening they will have to sell players.Arsenal will get first refusal on any player they want from buffon thuram viera trezeguat and nedved. arsenal are likely to be given buffon for free instead of juve paying the rest of the 8million for viera


It is true that pratically many of the summer signings of Manchester United are on pre-contractual deals to avoid inflation of prices from consequences of a positive world cup. The pre-contractual agreements also ensure that if a player is seriously injured, then Manchester United have the capability of cancelling the contract.

Contract deals have almost been done with Juan Roman Riquelme and Fernando Torres. Although Manchester United won't reveal further details now due to the possibility of Chelsea complicating the situation.

Crystal Palace are on the verge of signing Hull Citys Boaz Myhill and Jon Parkin for a combined fee of 2.3 million pounds it is also rumoured that former Hull boss Peter Taylor is interested in signing Hulls Damien Delaney and Leon Cort that could cost Palace another 2 million

Spurs are willing to consider offers for 'in-form' midfielder Hossam Ghaly. The spurs mangement considered the Egyptian to be in "the best form of his career" during his reserve appearances but remain unconvinced about his ability to cut it in the Premiership. Pompey, West Ham, Reading and several European clubs thought to be interested.

Apparently Tottenham are set to sign the goal scoring wonder Darren Bent from charlton for a fee of £12million.Beware of the king of kings!MJ

Speedy winger paul parry is poised to complete a move to west ham, who are desperate to secure his services with a bid of 1.5m

Sheffield wednesday have joined the race to sign yeovil defender terry skiverton, lodging a 100k bid for him. However, they may find it tough to fight off competition from northampton, oxford and accrington stanley.

Izale Mcleod is set to waste his career at MK Dons after agreeing a new contract with the club. The striker is reported to be interesting astone villa and birmingham but will stay put in order to 'aid his development as a player'.

NUFC News......

I have seen reports that a possible take over of the club is on the cards. A US company has shown intrest in John Hall shares (FS may also be willing to off load his but fans dont want to put any hopes on that)

All this BS about who has done what is NOT what these pages are about so come on and get over it!

I'm not going over the ins and out as they have been a closed book as they are waiting for offers to be accepted (3 still out 2 confirmed)

Villa not very close on the JM value and have refused a part ex.

LUFC fans may need to think the CB bit over as his house in the North East has been taken off the market. Not sure what is going on their but after been on the market for 5 months it has been removed from all advertising.


1) Colchester united are going to sign martin ling of the os on as manager as phil parkinson has gone to hull.

2) Fulham have in fact signed gabby zakuani from the o's, subject to a medical

3) Finally My fathers friend is best buddies with bolo zenden of liverpool and apparently he has rejected the offer of a new contract and will sign for Blackburn next week

LFC News:

Liverpool to complete Craig Bellamy signing by Thursday at the latest for £6m. Also, David Villa is now strongly being linked after Luis Garcia says he'd love him at Anfield. Villa would cost around £18m so is unlikely sadly. Aimar deal still on but it all hinges on the Alves move. Personal terms have been agreed with Alves but Sevilla still demanding too much. Word has it that they'll now accept a £9.4m bid as Alves has said he refuses to play as he wants to complete his "dream move"



The race to sign TORRES is over as arsenal will be signing him for 23.5 million after the world cup this is FACT.. ADRIANO will not be signing but his brazillian team mate KAKA has been strongly linked with a move to the emirates. WENGER will follow the Juventus saga closely and if juve are relegated expect BUFFON and THURAM to be joining the gunners.


i play football with kevin nolans cousin and he says kevin will be signing for everton after the world cuo with richard wright and kilbane going the other way along with 2 million pound

LATEST MUFC NEWS: SAF wants proven premiership players predominantly with a couple of foreigners making up the numbers. Expect Carrick 15m, Cahill 8m and Kerlon 5m for definite. Mascherano/Cambiasso 10m, Duff/Ribery 9m, Rafinha 4-6m and Torres/Huntelaar/R.Keane 10-20m all possibles along with any juve players if found guilty(even with arsenals first option) with nedved favourite of all. MUFC also to sell silvestre 6m france/part of carrick deal, fletcher 2m scotland, wes brown 2m/loan deal in prem, smith 6m/loan deal in prem, and finally RVN/saha 10-18m only if deemed surplus to requirements. Team Next Season: VDS Neville, Rio, Vidic, Heinze Ronaldo, Carrick, Cahill, Duff Rooney, RVN Subs: Foster, O'Shea, Evra, Pique, Park, Scholes, Giggs, Cambiasso, Richardson, Huntelaar, Saha

Liverpool are set to land Daniel Alves and Craig Bellamy this wk. It Is believed that sevilla have now reduced the pound£12 and liverpool are believed to have increased their own price to 10m.

Carrick will not leave spurs, neither will Jenas.

We will however be signing zokora, yaya toure, and a full back, possibly barry or konchesky.

We will also be getting Downing

All those saying torres is going to Man U, you aint got a clue. Arsenal have agreed a pre world cup fee of 20m euros. Athletico are probably kicking themselves as are Dortmund as the values of both Torres and Rosicky have doubled.

Watford will not be siging anyone until after the world cup.

Dwight Yorke will sign for Sunderland on a six month rolling contract, well according to my mate who works for the local paper.
