Football Rumours Archive June 21 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.


Will people please stop the rumours about DIC taking over at Liverpool because we all know deep down the two Yanks (Hicks & Gilett) will not sell. Now to transfers, Glen Johnson will sign on Monday after already deciding to join us before Chelsea had a agreed a fee. He will be given the number 2 shirt as Andrea Dossena will next week head to Italy, probably to Juventus as he is the younger option to Fabio Grosso who Juve were also interested in. With £6.5 million from this deal and £8 million from the Alvaro Arbeloa deal to Real Madrid this will cover the money that was used to sign Johnson. With Johnson signing for £10.5 million and the money of the Crouch to Portsmouth deal wiped away Liverpool will use the extra money to go back to Portsmouth and sign Sylvain Distin for £2 million to cover the centre back position. With Arbeloa leaving Johnson will be the first choice right back at Anfield with Philipp Degen given one more season to prove himself as injuries scuppered his chances last season. Xabi Alonso although he refused the chance to comment on his future a few days ago in an interview he will stay at Liverpool after Madrid admitted they are not trying to sign him for the start of next season, but could come back for him next summer. Unfortuanetly though Javier Mascherano will be leaving for Barcelona, as his wife is in South America and will not come back to Merseyside as she cannot settle so a deal will be struck for around £42 million plus Sergio Busquets. This is the reason Carlos Tevez has decided against coming to Liverpool, not because of the rivalry between us and Man Utd but because Mascherano will not be here so he will sign for Man City instead. Once this deal has gone through Liverpool will keep their representatives in Spain and will thrash out a deal of £34 million for David Villa of Valencia. Notice how he has not signed for Madrid, as he knew Liverpool had interest in him but did not have the cash until the Mascherano deal went through. Villa will sign after being convinced by Torres and the rest of the Spanish contingent at Liverpool, he will wear the number seven shirt at Anfield next season. These four are the only signings Liverpool will be making this summer, another type of signing will be the return of Sebastien Leto as he has fallen out with the Olimpiakos manager and by the start of the season he will be given a work permit to play in the premier league. The other players leaving as well as Mascherano, Arbeloa and Dossena are Itandje, Voronin, Hyypia, Pennant, Hobbs and a few more reserve players.

  Right good news for Liverpool fans, Glen Johnson is set to sign for Liverpool over Chelsea. It is believed that having already had a chance at the Bridge he is keen to play Champions League football at Anfield. His Friendship with Gerrard and Carargher is also a Key factor for his decision to move to Anfield.

Portsmouth are rumoured to be keeping an eye on Liverpool defender Stephen Darby but have yet to make a bid.

Chelsea have made a bid for an undisclosed fee for David Villa But Real Madrid are favourites for the strikers signature.

Manchester City and Chelsea are head to head for Tevez's signature after he rejected united's offer. Chelsea seem more appealing with the chance to play Champions League football But Manchester City will be the club to sign Tevez as he doesn't wish to move from his Chesire Home.

TAKEOVER TALK – With Liverpools David Moores stepping down from the board of directors it is highly rumoured that Liverpool are about to witness a takeover. With the american owners believed to be short of cash DIC name is being strongly linked to become the new owners of Liverpool Football Club.

Roman Pavlyuchenko could be set to sign for Sunderland after having a poor season at Spurs. The Russian striker has declared he wants to move clubs and it is believed that Sunderland are favourites to sign Pavlyuchenko.

LOAN – Nani could be set to be on a seasons loan to Wigan. The portugese winger has yet to live up to his potential and it is believed Sir ALex Ferguson is looking to loan the player out. With the signing of Valencia inevitable to Manchester United it is believed that Nani will help fill the void at Wigan

  To Gooner N1:

You have made me (and I'm pretty sure all other Arsenal supporters) embarrassed to follow the same club as you. Speak properly rather than the tripe you just spewed!

One rumour to put forward that I've heard doing the rounds – Wenger is due to approach Middlesbrough for young Adam Johnson, not David Wheater as expected. That said, there are a host of clubs interested in snapping Johnson up, including Liverpool and Portsmouth.

Finally, Man Utd will not be purchasing a goalkeeper. Unfortunately Van Der Sar looks set to keep his place ahead of Ben Foster, who I believe Ferguson has every belief in.

The Insider
I was the one who brought you the news of Bojan being included in the Maschrano deal and its happened. .Benitez is considering the bid as mascharano is more indispensable to the club than Xabi Alonso and hes has been told by sevral of his players includin Fernando Torres, Xabi and Dani Pacheco to take the deal as they all believe Bojan is the next big thing
Rafa is lineing up a initial 12 million bid for hard man Lorik Cana as he belives he has the ability to strike fear in opposing premierleague midfielders(and i agree)
Also it is rumoured that this 20 year old Uraguayin winger is in Liverpool discussing terms. not sure of his name but hes drawn comparisions to Messi for his strength while dribbling. .
  Ian Holloway has already fallen out with Karl Oyston over transfer funds. Welcome to Blackpool Ian.

  Spurs Rumours

The Ashley Young deal isn't going too well but HR has not given up and is apparently touting Jenas and Bentley and maybe Bent as part of the deal. Also, Ruud van Nistelrooy should be coming seeing as he has little hope of playing first team footie at Real. Don't expect KJH nor Sneijder nor Robben to come. Gago and Heinze are possibilities but are unlikely. Anyway, van Nistelrooy and Young would be ideal additions to the team.

Leaving will be Bentley, Jenas and Bent. Fulham have made inquiries about Bale, Huddlestone and O'Hara but I don't expect HR to sell them as they have immense potential to become great players.

Don't expect Richard Dunne to come. HR knows he is well past his prime.

  Notts county 2 sign posh duo torres and potter.they are also lukin at gareth evans,ian brecken,wayne henderson,lee beever,danny senda, ben davies,john welsh,andrew mangan with canham goin other way on loan.
  To this guy:
"Right can we get this straight for all the people saying that LFC will get David Villa, David Silva and glen Johnson you've all got your heads in the sky, Liverpool have no money to spend unless they sell players we already know that, they will not get Villa because villa has quiet categorically in a number of interviews said that he wants to stay in Spain seeing Real and Barcelona have placed bids for him the two biggest clubs in Spain i really can't see him moving to the English Premiership, Valencia have already said they are not going to sell David Silva they will either hold him on until the the January transfer market or more likely next summers transfer market. And

now to Glen Johnson he will sign for Chelsea with the sale of Bosingwa that frees up the right side of defense, glen has a lot of friends at Chelsea that still keep in touch with him, Glen Johnson will be promised first team football at Chelsea whereas Rafa cannot promise that with a world cup coming up which Johnson wants to be included in he needs to play regular football he will be able to get that at Chelsea hence why he will move there"

1. I like the way you have stated Liverpool have no money as if you actually know anything about the club. Nobody outside of Anfield knows the situation, no announcements have been made so how could you know.

2. If (and it is a big IF) there is any takeover then we will have money and signings could be the ones touted on here.

3. Villa stated he wanted to play in Spain, yes. But he publically stated there was Real Madrid and one other team he was interested in (could be Barca, might not be). It seems very strange that Real Madrid talks stall, Torres publically asks for Villa and then Villa stated "he's made his mind up". . .nothing confirmed just thoughts here!

4. Glen Johnson will have to decide, but odds are that having played at Chelsea and been frozen out he would probably get more first team football at Liverpool as we look to sell Arbeloa.

5. Finally, just an observation here: Rafa – new contract, Torres – extension signed, Gerrard, Kuyt, Reina, Agger etc. Moores leaving, Parry gone – anyone else see a takeover here??

Hope the good guys at footballrumours post this!

  Take this information as you want, as I may be in the wrong. However, whilst travelling back from London I swear I saw Franck Ribery in the passenger seat of a black bentley on (I think) the M25. Now i was sleepy and the cars were moving quickly but if this is the case is a move to London on the cards?

You must'v been very sleepy cause cars do not move fast on the M25. They move like Berbatov.

Ollie Niddrie
  LFC have earmarked Alan Hutton for the RB role just in case the Johnson deal hits a snag. Rafa is giving serious consideration to Micah Richards dependant upon price as he knows he can cover RB AND CB, is English, and has already got a lot of experience. If the price is right expect a move to be made and Arbeloa to be sacrificed to Real Madrid. I don't see the midfield being shaken up as it did very well last campaign, but with certain clubs offering silly money for players, you can never say never. Rafa only wants a few Ins to promote stability. So joining the one or two mentioned we may see Distin, dependant upon who comes in and price. Also expect a bid for Athletico's AM Simao Sabrosa. We already have 3 wingers if you count Kuyt, but that wud make 4 and free up Kuyt to go up front when needed. The striker we want hasnt fully been decided on, Guys like Llorente, the other Llorente, Negredo and Kevin Davies have been considered, but I think Rafa knows theres always the odd gem to be snapped up if you be patient in the window. Im sure he has a back up plan just in case anyway.
  Glen Johnson came back fron his holiday on Friday and had a medical on Saturday in Liverpool , The deal will be confirmed on Monday.
  To the Arsenal fan who called me a muppet for saying that Manchester United would let Tevez go. Benzema is lined up as a replacement. I hope you hold you hands up and apologise

Steve Bruce will spend big and wisely this summer
here are a few players he could sign:

Kyle Naughton 7 mill sheff utd.
Richard Dunne 5 mill from man city.
J Pennant free agent
Markus Berg 8.7 mill from Groningen
Lee Cattermole 7 mill from wigan
Darren Bent 11 mill from spurs
Javier Saviola 8 mill from madrid
Tom Huddlestone 6 mill from spurs
A Valencia 17 mill from wigan. man utd eyeing up bigger targets
Arsenal fans need to mug up. Wenger only has his eye on signing 2/3 players this summer. CB,DM and maybe GK if he can get a good price. For CB– Vermaelen. For DM(order of likeliness)– Melo or Cana or M.Diarra– He will not buy youth for this position and these 3 are his only targets.
Now with these additions are squad will be complete. However, players are expected to leave and they will be replaced. Eboue(8m–Spain/Italy) and Gallas(10m Milan) will be replaced by: Zapata or Sakho or Bassong. If Ade leaves(MLN,CHL,BAR– 18m) his replacements in line are(no order): Gignac,Huntelaar,Dzeko,Chinedu,Pogbrynak,Trez, Nene,Oba. Toure,RVP,Cesc,Clichy,Sagna will not be allowed to leave.
Gallas – 10mil – Milan
Eboue – 8mil – A.Madrid/Juve/Roma/Sevilla
Adecantscore– 18mil – Chelsea/Barca/Milan
Senderos– 6mil – P/X
IN: (position/cover)
Vermaelen – 8mil(initial) – CB/LB,DM
Melo – 15mil + Senderos – DM,CB
Zapata – 11mil – CB/RB
TREZEGOL – 12mil – CF
Initial Budget: 19mil
Net Profit: 7mil
Shrewder than shrewd as always from wenger and he will answer all questions with these sigings. Experience,Finishing,Depth,Defence all sorted and we will be stronger than ever next year. Now for you lot, what you have just seen is the truth and i should have struck huge optimism into Arsenal Hearts. When i recieve my 1st ever season ticket at the age of 16, my 1st season will be the start of the THE TROPHY YEARS. No matter how much they spend we still have the arsenal belief which continues to bamboozle every other Big club and we will find ourselves REIVIGORATED. Expect further investment from Kroenke/Usmanov in the next 2 seasons and our spending powers reinbirsed. THE PAIN IS OVER.
  Lyon winger Sidney Govou to Aston Villa. The 29 year old French man has scored 46 goals in 250 appearances for Lyon and 10 goals in 37 appearances for France. He will cost around £10 million.

  Right arsenals' summer dealings;
Robin Van Persie will sign a new deal.
Fabianski (loan)
Silvestre (swap)
Gallas (6m)
Gibbs (loan)
Senderos (swap)
Eboue (5m)
Diaby (9m)
Hart (Loan)
Sakho (Silvestre+7m)
Hangeland (11m+Gibbs on loan)
Vermaelen (8 rising to 10m)
Melo (12m+Senderos)
Hazaad (7m)

We may have to get used to life with out Fabregas as its belived that Barcelona will table a 40million bid which will be accepted by AW as he feels Fabregas deserves to be at thye best club in the world.
With Vermaelen signed expect this to trigger the start of a couple of signings from Wenger.
Vermaelen(Ajax)10million DONE DEAL
Felipe Melo(Fiorentina)15million+Senderos
Vincent Enyeama(Hapoel Tel Aviv)2–3million
Dabo(St Etienne)4million
+ Younsters
Snijder and Johnson will only come in if Fabregas leaves and they still may not happen if he does leave us as AW has lots of confidence in Denilsons ability and sees him as a suitable replace ment for Fabregas.
Gallas–PSG 6million
Senderos–Fiorentina Part exchange
Adebayor–AC Milan 23million
Eboue–Italian club 5–7million
Clichy–R.Madrid 18million.

Bright times ahead
  Expect Liverpool to make a bid for Chelsea`s Joe Cole £10 million deal.
Chelsea will make a shock bid for Arsenal defender William Gallas.

  I work at Gatwick Airport as a security officer and I met Sir Alex Ferguson's brother Martin who is a Manchester United scout last week. He told me he had been watching Karim Benzema since Tevez said he wanted to go and United were preparing an offer for him in the region of £30–£40 million for Benzema. Watch this space. .
  Matthew Upson is on his way to Villa Park. The fee will be Curtis Davies + £5million. This is because Zola is looking towards building a younger team and sees Davies and Tomkins as a decent long–term partnership at the back. O'Neill is no longer keen on Davies and is hoping that the experienced Upson can be an able replacement for Martin Laursen. Upson has been persuaded as he enjoyed his time in the Midlands with Birmingham City and has a close friend from there in Emile Heskey at Villa.

Jermaine Jenas (Everton £6million)

  I am afraid that the tim was right kevin thomson will cross the old firm divide. Davis will sign for birmingham along with boyd, Bougherra will stay along with mendes. Ferguson has gone but McGregor will again become rangers no1. We will sign MacArthur, Mehmet, Barr.

I am also scared that mowbray has big money to spend in the summer with Driver, Fortune, Janko, Fabio(loan), elano(loan) and Thomson.

I have inside information at both clubs, you heard it from gersno1fan
  Lfc urgent news

johnson will complete move to liverpool on monday despite the offer from chelsea being accepted and will wear the number 6 shirt definate
rafa will then turn to silva for 20m but is reluctant to go higher than that, if that plan falls through he will try a move for downing and boro team–mate adam johnson and finally will look for a back–up striker , he is currently looking at tuncay, saviola or nelgrado
and the shock news is that he will only look at owen if he hasnt the budget to buy any of the 3.
last news on ins is that he will look at heinze for no more than 4m.
alonso will be staying but mascha will be leaving for 35m (double–profit) but he will keep some of the money for january.
expect rafa to sign youngsters as always and also expect pacheo and nemeth to break through into 1st team just like insua did last season.
good times ahead of lfc
  Ashley Young will turn down a move to Barca as he wants to stay in the premier league, he is expected to sign for Man Utd after the Winker deal goes through, £26.5M. Expect to see Jonny Evans go the other way as part of the deal.

  Major Football Club Rumors

News From Today (not a rumor,true news) –

Tevez has rejected Man Utd's contract today! Now the Team That he is most likely to join is Man City!


Van Nistelrooy to Totham

Antonio Valencia to Man utd

Dodo to Man utd

Benzema at the moment has been persuaded NOT TO leave Lyon

Frank Ribery to Real Madrid (with a little help from Zidane)

Wesley Sneijder to man utd (aparently he is part of the Ronaldo deal but IF Ronaldo doesn't sing for Madrid then probably Sneijder won't sign for United unless they make a seperate bid.

Adebayor To AC Milan

Thats what i can tell for now
  Fergie doesn't plan to make any major signings this summer. Having already foreseen Ronaldo was to leave and knowing there was a great chance Tevez would be going he has decided not to make any wholesale changes. Don't panic though Reds. The main reason is because of Fergie's trust in the batch of youngsters coming through. The major areas of concern we already have covered with hot prospects;

Centre Midfield–Rodrigo Possebon

Wings–The Da Silva brothers are more than capable of playing as wingers and given their experience this would be an ideal position for them. As well as Tosic, Nani (if he can capture the form of his first season) and the incoming Ljejic.

Upfront–Welbeck and Macheda.

Not to mention Jonny Evans in defence (enough said).

A more than adequate squad and if the young players reach their potential we could have a squad better than last years in time.

Expect Valencia however, and if (a big IF) a major target becomes available ie; Benzema, De Rossi etc. (not Ribery) expect a major bid from United. Bids for youngsters such as Hazard and Douglas Costa are also in the offing.
  Eden Hazard are moving to Manchester United. Deal to be concluded next weekend.
  Arsnal likely signings. . .and departures.


Vermaelen – complete (will be Wengers Vidic hopefully)

Felipe Melo – Fiorentina – Is ideal age & has broken into Brazilian team of late & done well. Best to buy now before a World Cup inflation price. Offers much more than Denilson or Song. May offer Senderos in deal as he is said to prefer to stay in Italy.

Huntelaar – R Madrid – Wenger has been a long admirer of Huntelaar & will take advantage of Real Madrid firesale. Still young & keen to prove himself on big stage. Arsene will want to develop raw talent he has. RVP & Vermaelen both friends. Makes sense!!

Bassong – Newcastle – Wenger will also take advantage of Newcastle firesale & get Bassong for decent price backing Newcastle into a corner. Has made enquiries several times & Bassong has publicly confirmed this. Not sure if this is what gunners need as he is young & only had a year in a porous Newcastle defence as experience. Maybe if Toure and/or Gallas go.

Eden Hazard – A likely hush hush undisclosed last minute typical Wenger signing. Will make him into a world class superstar a la Fabregas. Cool name too!!

Thomas Hitzelsperger(ex Villa) – Hard tackling, big engine, can pass, demon left foot shot. Would be a good squad player & would add balance & experience. Would provide German efficiency & temprement. Better than Denilson, Song or Diaby & just what we need – a hard man.


CD – Micah Richards (young, quick, physical & can play rb or cd) Christian Zapata. .depending on Toure/Gallas situations
CM – Yaya Toure(doubtful given Kolo Toures likely departure & an improved offer from Barca), Miguel Veloso – questions over temprement & consistency. Might not cope with speed of PL.
Marouane Chamakh – Wenger is a big admirer & would be a ready made replacement for Adebarndoor

Departures. .

Kolo Toure – Hasn't really been himself last few seasons & Wenger knows it. Good time to cash in, a certainty if Gallas stays. Man City have made offer.
Senderos – P/ex for Melo
Silvestre – Didn't really justify his addition to squad & will be moved on to French team. Past it.
Greedybayor – Didn't wanna do it last season & will be moved on to Italy. A shame.
Eboue – May have to go elsewhere for regular 1st team spot. Useful player when he wants to be.

Pie in the sky. .
Really wish we could afford to go for Tevez. He is blatant class & just what we need. Us Gooners would absolutley love him.

Got an interestin rumour for all u toffee fans, David Moyes flew out to the land of the swiss last month, now ofcourse this could just be for a short break but Ive got a hunch hes after a player, like Yakin or Streller. My source isn't a club insider just a travel agent whose buissness is mainly for prem clubs. b4 i go heres an interestin fact, Arsenal pay a grand per week to fly out there club doctor from france cose he doesn't like English weather, Credit Crunch my arse! peace out!

Celtic Fc News

Celtic have been rumoured to sign :
Timothee Atouba (HSV – 2m)
Marc Antoine Fortune (Nancy – 3m)
Steven Fletcher (Hibs – 3m)
Joey Barton (Newcastle – 1m)
  With certain players being ruled out because they are too old, SAF has narrowed down his list and is starting to make moves this week. Benzema will be brought in, although the price is unclear, prob 28–35mil. Valencia (for some reason) will be bought for 17mil, and one of A. Young, Silva, Rossi or Aguero will fill the other side, again, age being a primary concern. Finally, Maicon will be brought in for around 22mil from Inter. United have a 3/4backline, with Vidic, Rio and Evra, and need a solid right back, Rafael and Fabio are still the future, but they are still young and will eventually replace maicon and evra. Also, it gives SAF the ability to double up on a wing if needed, for instance playing Rafael at right mid and Maicon at right back or Fabio and Evra. All told, expect SAF to spend somewhere between 90–100mil. We received 67mil for Ronaldo after fees and such, add that to the 30mil annual budget and the 10mil or more we'll get from other player sales and the lessening of wage bill.
  Arsenal F.C
Wenger has looked at Huntelar of Real Madrid and thinks he might provide a better foil for R Van Persie who will sign a new contract on this news. Ade will be the player to leave and make way for this partnership. Melo the Brazilian Midfielder will be brought in to add steel to our midfield. Add to this Sakho in defenence and maybe a cheeky bid for a class goalkeeper though i though Almunia was excellent last year. Finally one youngster as is Wengers way Eden Hazard no suprise there.
  Could it be that manutd have already signed David silva in the winter when fergie knew that Ronaldo was gonna leave? and that we offerd them around 20–25 mil and a friendly match were they take 70 procent of the incme??? I truly belive that this might be the case, since we havent heard a single word from fergie, he is calm, way to calm, when beckham left he was on Ronaldinho in 2 min, and when he missed he got Ronaldo! If fergie knew that this day would come, don't think he made the sam mistake again! So forget all this nonsense that we are hunting players! David silva is the only real winger we can get! now fergie should try for benzema and de rossi or veloso or snejder! What do u guys think? could this be why fergie is quiet??? and i truly believe that there is some thing fishy with the transfer of benzema. the way layon is coming out,they are making there club fan sure that benzema will this transfer window only.
  Not much of a rumour but a fact. While you were asleep in the UK, George Gillet has agreed sold the Montreal Canadiens to the Molson family for around 550 mil US. This could be a sign he is commited to Liverpool or he is cashing out while the iron is hot. He also owns part of a NASCAR team and could be using the money to help fund it. Seems to me the DIC buyout is a bunch of trash.
  Will people stop linking us (celtic) with ivan sproul

Caldwell New Deal :) Aint goin to Burnley

Bids will be made for Fortune ,Fltecher ,Robinson , Vargas (chilean) dude, in the next few days

Mogga may have to sell one of the following Boruc , McGeady , Brown (hope not) To buy one or two quality signings

Donati, Balde, definate outs

Bhoy insider!!!
  Liverpool will be able to hang on to Alonso and Mascherano for this season, but it is doubtful that they will stay for longer.

Leaving this season will be:

Alvaro Arbeloa (8mil)
Albert Riera (12mil)
Andrea Dossena (6mil)
Andriy Voronin (4mil)
Sebastian Leto (3mil)
Paul Anderson (1mil)
Charles Itjande (0.5mil)
Jack Hobbs (0.5mil)
Philip Degen (1.5mil)
Nabil El Zhar (1.5mil)

Cominh in will be:

Glen Johnson (17mil) Right full back
Yuri Zhirkov (18mil) Winger of full back
Micah Richards (6mil) Right back but also cover for CB
David Silva (18mil) Any attacking position
Oscar Sielva (2mil) Defensive midfield cover
  Nufc to sign Rosenbergs Skjelbred, Lustig and Annan once the takeover is complete. Huge Nufc fan Skjelbred has convinced team mates Annan and Lustig to join him at Nufc.
Nufc Also targeting. . Juhasz and Boussaffa of Anderlecht and lots of young upcoming english talent with the promise of more playing time than being a squad player at a premier league side will give them. Cambell (man utd), Beckford (leeds), Driver (hearts), Llana (saints), Beevers (sheff wed), mills (doncaster), Surman (saints), cox (swindon), addison (derby), Orr (doncaster), Barnes (derby), delph (leeds), fox (coventry), westwood (coventry), these are targets remember i am not saying any will be definatly signed. Nufc also want marcus berg from groningen but the highly rated swede is likely to head to a top dutch side like ajax/psv or move to germany.
Once the takeover is completed shearer will be appointed manager, he has spoken to every interested party already and agreed to manage for whoever takes control of the club with his inside knowledge of what needs to be done having already been passed on to all interested parties.
After that every player bar taylor/harper/carroll/ranger could be sold depending on the bids recieved. Dowie charged with finding a couple of older championship experienced players to lead the rebuilding of a younger more hungry Nufc team.
Finally Chelsea are sniffing around young dutch Nufc keeper Krul for backup if they can't agree terms with boros turnbull, krul is highly rated by chelseas arneson.
  Liverpool are looking to sign 5 young English players:

Fabian Delph (6mil rising to 9 + Plessis on loan)
Joe Mattock (5mil rising to 7 + Hamill on loan)
Glen Johnson (17mil wising to 18.5)
Micah Richards (6mil rising to 7.5)
Kyle Naughton (5mil rising to 7.5 + Darby loan)

Based on their success at the club, initial prices will increase.

Delph, Naughton & Mattock will be groomed for a year and then will try and fight for a place in the team.

Mattock will look to become a replacement for Aurelio who is turning 30 soon. Naughton to fight with Johnson for the right back spot because Benitez sees Micah Richards as a future centre back.

as well as:

David Silva (17mil rising to 20)
Javi Martinez (13mil rising to 16)
Goran Pandev (10mil) 1 year left on contract

Leaving will be:

Albert Riera (11mil)
Philip Degen (1.5mil)
Alvaro Arbeloa (8mil)
Paul Anderson (1mil)
Andrea Dossena (6mil)
Nabil El Zhar (1.5mil)
Xabi Alonso (28mil)
Charles Itjande (0.5mil)
Jack Hobbs (500k)
  There will be a host of players leaving Liverpool this summer. This is not what Benitez originally intended but he doesn't have much choice.

Leaving will be:

Javier Mascherano (30mil + Bojan)
Alvaro Arbeloa (8mil)
Albert Riera (12mil)
Andrea Dossena (6mil)
Andriy Voronin (4mil)
Sebastian Leto (3mil)
Charles Itjande (0.5mil)
Jack Hobbs (0.5mil)
Philip Degen (1mil)

Liverpool will sign:

Javi Martinez (14mil)
David Silva (20mil)
Yuri Zhirkov (17mil)
Glen Johnson (17mil)
Micah Richards (6mil)
Bojan Krkic (swap)
  Teves seen at COMS. Deal done – only sticking point is that Bellamy is annoyed that City have found sumone even uglier than him.
  Rangers News

The Gers to sign the following over the summer after they get rid of the deadwood at Ibrox (no need to name names we all know who they are):

Taiwo – Marseille £3m
Brunt – West Brom £1.5m +Ferguson
Driver – Hearts £1 + Webster
Hutton – Spurs Swap for Mcgregor
Tonel – Sporting Lisbon £2.5m
MacArthur – Hamilton £0.7m

Total = £8.2m
52 and counting, catch us if you can!
  Rangers will offer a contract to Trinadad & Tobago midfielder Keon Daniel.
  Birmingham city transfer news!!!

BCFC will be signing argentina playmaker Pablo Aimar. Also Oguchi Onyewu will come in on a Free transfer despite many other clubs from across europe trying to sign him.
If lee bowyer does not sign the contract on offer to him then mcleish will sign his former rangers captain Barry Furguson as a replacement. The identity of the former premier league superstar being offered in excess of £90,000 p/w by the blues is 1 of 2 players, either van nistelrooy or veron but the word is they won't sign for blues because they want to play european football. KRO
  SAF will sign Jermain Defoe to replace Carlos Tevez.

He will bid 18,000,000 but will certainly get his man even if he has to go higher.

Redknapp is apparantly willing to deal as no–one has come in for a suitable offer for Robbie Keane and one of Defoe or Keane has to go.
1–With ronlado and tevez both confirmed to be gone by the united website, and from lyon president's words that Karim Benzema will join united this summer.
2–Sir Alex wants 4 strikers and is prepared to splash the cash for Aguero with a cash +berbatov dealtoo.
3–Carrick has been increasingly dissapointing this season and will be sold and Pjanic/Hamsik/De rossi being his replacement.
4–As for the winger position a 15 mil+nani deal is in place for David Silva as Valencia will a replacement .
5– lastly Antonio Valencia is a done deal
  Right a few things need clearing up!! I'm a Liverpool fan and all these rumours about the club being bought are absolute rubbish!!! If the club was bought there would be no chance of it being covered up or kept quiet until a certain date as it has to be announced to the stock market!!!!

We won't be signing David Villa his price is far too high and i doubt we'll even get David Silva but he is still a prime target.

Either Mascherano or Alonso will leave but not both a fee between 30–35m will be accepted for either.

Expect our signings to be. .

G.Johnson – 17M
J.Martinez – 11M
D.Silva – 22M
A. Negredo – 6M
  Lets get a couple of things straight ronaldo is going to madrid for 80 million with no players going the other way, however it's not completely done yet as ronaldo wants more than 200 grand a week.

Tevez is leaving as he has stated that he does not wish to continue playing for united even though they met the 25.5 million pound asking price and offered a 5 year contract which would have made tevez one of the clubs highest paid players. he will either go to man city or chelsea not liverpool as he has too much respect for united.

David villa has said he only wants to move to madrid and will go for 30–40 million.

lyon have told man u they can have benzema if they pay 30 million

Antonio valencia is likely to move to man u for around 16 million

Ribery has said that he will only move to spain as he doesn't like englands weather so hes likely to go to madrid although there's still hope for man u to get him

man city have agreed a 18 million pound move for santa cruz
  Have you noticed its mostly liverpool or closet liverpool fans that post on this site?!Probably because they're used to living in a fantasy land dribbling out of the corner of their mouths, glazed eye stare, sat in the corner of their boxroom! It's easier than reality!
Manchester United to sign a few cheap players from the likes of Mirko Vucinic, Luis Valencia, Douglas Costa, Guiseppe Rossi, Stevan Jovetic, Arda Turan or Juan Manual Mata. Expect NO big name/£20m+ signings. SAF is happy with the progress of Nani, Anderson, Tosic, Wellbeck etc. He will give Youth a chance next season as we are now a team in transition and the style of play will change; expect more classic wing play. SAF will build this new style around these young players.
1 note on Carlos Tevez, the man with worse decision making than fat Ronaldo's dietician. Should've signed for a big club. city fans get ready for a classic Tevez badge kissing debut, before he gets offered more money by chelsea next season. Here's to the new alan shearer.
  This week is the WEEK OF DEFENDERS, where each of the 'Big 4' will sign a defender.
Arsenal–Thomas Vermaelen €12m
Chelsea–Maicon €20m plus Deco and Carvalho
Liverpool–Glen Johnson €21m
Manchester Utd–Dodo €9m

  Arsenal sell adebayor to AC MILAN get TEVEZ

or to barcelona and get eto'o
  Apparantly david dein is again working for arsenal, reports have been leaked that he is brokering deals for arsene with usmanovs money, these deals are pre–contract agreements, for the following players edin hazard and yohann cabaye of lille, mamadou sakho from psg, yohann gourcuff from bordeaux and yohann pele from riennes. This will give wenger first refusal on these players should they decide to leave their clubs or are put up for sale.

  I think Mascherano is on his way out of LFC :( He dosn't want to leave and loves the club, but I think the reports of his wife are true and will be moving to Spain. Barca could bid 20 million + Bojan, which would be a fantastic deal, but Real Madrid will also come in for Mascherano with an even greater bid.

Expect us to buy Aguero if Mascherano goes to Real or Bojan if he goes to Barca.

I think Alonso will stay, as will Lucas. If Real does buy Mascherano, they will have no need in Alonso. LFCs summer transfers all depend on where Mascerano ends up!

BTW, rumours that LFC are skint are untrue, otherwise why would we pay £17 Million for a right back? There are plenty of other around for cheaper, just not any as good as Johnson.

These are all but wrapped up:

Nani (loan (£12m option))
Jo (loan (£8m option))
M'Bia (£8m)
Moutinho (£15m – (at training ground now))
Naughton (£6m)

NB: Lescott will not be sold unless City pay £25m.

  How many players apperantly won't sign for anyone in England other than Liverpool due to their 'Spanish contingent' or 'lifelong love of the club'?! funny these players have never mentioned this before! quality players move for possible success and money. End of.
United to sign Rossi, Giovinco, Valencia and Sneijder.
  Fact!!! Barca rates Eto'o highly, higher than Masherano, therefore they would not add cash to a deal that would benefit Liverpool greatly. This rumour was born out of fools logic 'Barca wants Masherano, and has to sale Eto'o therefore they will swap' However, if you use common sense you realise that if they are going to let him go it would not be for a centre midfielder it would be for another striker. Considering the fact that Barca has announced they would only spend 35m prior to any sales, giving up the main source of the more income, Eto'o plus 5m on a midfielder (a position that is not in 'bad shape') would only leave 30m to replace Eto'o.

And again, Aguero, Ribery, Benzema and Villa all wish to stay/go to Spain, so it is pointless writing that they'll go to England. This is a transfer rumour site, not one to post what you wish would happen.

No matter what price Manchester United get for Ronaldo, not all of it would go back into the market, so even if you estimate a net lose of only 20–30m your theory is probably wrong as there are debt to be paid.
