Ronaldo to Madrid for Robinho/Sneijder and £50 million cash (Sneijder the more likely option as Robinho would prefer to come to Chelsea)

Man United will also join the Hunt for David Bentley and K. J Huntelaar and look likely to sign both with the cash from the Ronaldo deal.

Toulanlan will sign for Arsenal in the next two weeks.

Engelaar is being watched by several top Premiership clubs after an impressive Euro 2008

Quareesma and Moutinho will join Inter as Lampard wants to go to Barcelona

  Eto'o has agreed to sign a two year contract with Inter millan for a fee of 2.5 mill

  I'm pretty sure that Bentley had signed for Tottenham.

My best pal, Wright is his neighbour and he said that he saw David Bentley was clearing away his house with his girlfriend, Ashley. He told Wright mom that he is going to London but din't state the purpose. It looked like they are shifting. As a Rover's fan, I hope thisis not true but it says it all.

  AZ Alkmaar's left sided midfielder, Stijn Schaars could join Glasgow Rangers in a 4.5 M deal by the end of the week

  The deal for Nasri is done He just had a medical and has already signed the deal. HE will be unveiled latest on Monday. And also the draft for the deals of Obafemi Martins (12 million), Andrei Arshavin (10 million) and Rafael Van Der Vaart (16 million) has been done. All we need to do is to re–confirm this with Wenger and then send out the offer and wait for the return. Artur Boruc is another but Wenger only wants to pay max £10 million but Celtic is holding out for £13 million.

  I work close to pride park and often nose for players. Have just seen Kevin phillips and is agent leaving the ground smilling.

  Lassana Diarra is not leaving Portsmouth, he has stated he would only leave if one of these four teams came in and they are: Man United, Chelsea, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. He has also refused to sign for any Italian team due to the history of racism in Serie A.

Kranjcar is not leaving either, they are both happy to stay at Portsmouth.

Pompey will anounce their interest in Shaun Wright–Phillips this week and wilmake a bid of £10 million. Peter Crouch is expected to sign a four year deal in the next couple of weeks, the only stumbling block is the price Liverpool are asking, Pompey will not budge on £8 million.

  Newcastle United have been listed with a load of names so far here are the truthful names: collocini (5 million) aimar (7 million) arshavin (12 million) arda turan (9 million) bridge (3 million) gomis (15 million)

  Celtic will strengthen all areas of the team this Summer. main targets are: pletikosa (gk) £1.8 million from spartak moscow, taiwo (lb) £2 million from Marseille, simic (cb) free from AC Milan, zapater (cm) £3 million from Zaragoza and the 'blue chip signing' pavlyuchenko (fw) from spartak moscow. 4 in a row cfc

  I am very close to Watford player Dan Shittu and can confirm he is on his way to Celtic and not Rangers in a deal worth £3 million + Nakamura. Expect this deal to be concluded in the week.

  Eto was spotted by a source having his own private tour of the ground.

This fuels the stories that FC Barcelona are keen to offer a player in exchange for Hleb.

  Leeds United transfers:


Robinson (Swansea)

Shelton (Sheff United)

  newcastle shock.

Just like I told you last week the Glen little would sign for Pompey. Reading other out of contract right winger John Oster will sign a one year deal with Newcastle and move back to north east were his wife is from. Hopey

  You have just got to hand it to the Liverpool supporters on here. Now everyone knows that the club is skint. So what do the fans do with this negative? They turn into a positive and employ wishful thinking as a tool. So the club is not broke but this is all a cunning plan by the devilishly clever Benitez to trick people into believing there is no money before he swoops, like an eagle, landing the prey that all the other teams in Europe covet. Guys, what you are doing is interpreting facts according to what you would like to be the case rather than according to the actual evidence.

Anyway, here are some real facts for you. Benitez is fed up with O'Neil at Villa and has made a take it or leave it offer of £16 million for Barry. If the deal does not go ahead he will swoop (like an eagle) for Bentley. Also on the cards is a move for Milner of Newcastle. Benitez values the player at about £6 million Mark but is very interested in using Crouch as bait to land his man. That is all for you folks at the moment. The only other thing I can tell you is that Benitez is being forced into looking at a couple of loan deals. I will post anything I hear regarding these as soon as my source gets back to me.

  After signing Steve Sidwell Villa will get

Paul Robinson £5 million

Pascal Chimbonda £4 million

Nickey Shorey £3.5 million

David Bentley £15 million

Peter Crouch £10 million

Also they will reject any bids from Liverpool for Gareth Barry

  Walter Smith is desperate for a left footed player and is eying up McFadden from Birmingham, but McLeish is not wanting to sell. McLeish is keen however to sign Boyd from Ibrox and Rangers are trying to use Boyd as a sweetner to accept Rangers bid of £3 million + Boyd. Rangers have signed three forwards and would only be willing to part with Boyd if they could bring in a creative players such as McFadden and he is about best Rangers can afford within their price range. Watch this develop in the next few weeks.


  Bentley is joining Liverpool – He's got really good mates who live in the City and is a regular at the Croc pub on Harrington street of a Sunday; saw one of his mates there Sunday just gone and he told me it is a done deal.

  This is not the first time and not the last that I have heard that Newcastle are not only interested in Zenit players but also their manager. Ashley was advised several months ago that he could get Dick Advocaat as well as Andrei Arshavin, Roman Shirokov and several other Russian league players and take Newcastle to another level at half the price and twice the football as before. Good football without the over paid fools. Young and hungry.

Watch Hiddink turn his old Dutch pay masters over and watch as Newcastle supporters disappointment turns to genuine hope as they appoint Mr Advocaat and move Keegan sideways.

  Rumours from informed sources at EUROS is that Adebeyor is going to Barcelona. There will be an announcement next week.
