Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Xabi Alonso is out of Liverpool after the Anfield Club and Real Madrid agreed a deal. Liverpool will pay 10mil as well as Alonso to Real Madrid, who will give Sergio Ramos and Wesley Sneijder to Liverpool. Perez isn't happy with Ramos's off the field antics and also wants to rid himself of the dutch players in the team.

Replacing Ramos at Madrid will be Maicon who will sign for around 16mil.

  Arsene watch j–j gosso for DM. He play for Monaco et Cote d'vore.
  SAF's brother went to watch the Barcelona game last week and rumours are that SAF's brother has come back with 4 key players that could possibly join United in the summer. The 4 key players are Messi, Eto'o, Iniesta & Xavi. I have no idea why they're looking at Iniesta and Xavi because United already have Anderson, Scholes, Carrick & Fletcher for the CM role. Messi I think would only be signed as a replacement for Ronaldo. Eto'o to me seems to be the most realistic as he could be the one to replace Tevez if he leaves United in the summer. Other rumours are that CFC and Arsenal are lining up a swap deal which will involve Adebayor and Drogba (Drogba to Arsenal & Adebayor to Chelsea) it will work the same way the deal did when Ashley Cole went to Chelsea and Gallas went to Arsenal. Last one, David Silva to LFC in the summer for £18 million. . Fact!

  "I work as assistant manager for a certain brand who Liverpools shirt sponcers and the other day my Boss got a call from his Supervisers telling him that next seasons kit manufacturing has started and he was told that we will be Manufacturing a new name and number this year. . NO 10. . . KUN AGUERO. .Dats wat i heard
YNWA!" – SIGH. Assistant manager of the shirt sponCers? Why am i not convinced? I never realised adidas pre–printed strips until the next season's squad was announced. . Actual real Real rumours: Aguero is staying in Spain – if he leaves Athletico (unlikely this year, but defo season after) he will join Barca or controversially and more likely; Real Madrid. Still, not as controversial as this next rumour –––– MESSI to REAL MADRID! Seriously, it might be happening! Madrid will be the summer's transfer record busting big spenders with similar bids for Ronaldo, Gerard, Kaka, Benzema, Vidic, Tevez and Essien. Not all will go, but with the money on offer, expect a lot of unsettled superstars to change alliegances overnight.
  West Ham United

West Ham United have bought Fraizer Lee Campbell who is currently on loan at Tottenham from Manchester United for 2.5 million pounds.

Daniel Andre Sturridge has agreed a contract offer from West Ham, his contract with Man City runs out in June and he has decided after being advised by his uncle and former footballer Dean Sturridge and after talking to both Zola and Clarke that it is in his best interests to move away from Manchester and move to London and join the Hammers.

  Dossena to Juventus.
Alonso to Real Madrid
Lucas to Atletico Madrid

Forlan to liverpool

  == PEOPLE PLEASE STOP == 1. Posting someone rumour then stating they're a "muppet" or other names. If their rumour's rubbish, we get it, don't wanna have to read prev postings. This is a rumour site, not a "make me feel better site". 2. Learn the language in which you are posting (grammer + spelling). Don't post if you can't "read good". 3. Don't make up transfer fees. Have a think first (Glen Johnson GPB12m. .he's a RB not a striker). 4. Stop posting players because they're good on your PS2/PS3/X–box. Pato, Drenthe, Bale, Navas ect. are great in Fifa/Football Manager, rubbish in real life. 5. Don't post wish lists. Your team will not sign everyone you've ever wanted. Nuff said LFC's likely. Outs GPB= 23m Voronin 5m Herta Berlin (HB target, stated in June). Leto 6m Olypiakos (been setting Greece on fire). Dossena 6m Inter (Inter was the other club typog for his signature + he's Italian 6+5). Anderson 1m Swansea. El Zhar 2m anywhere. Degen 2m Dortmund. Itanje 1m France. Rafa's been burned by clubs when they think he's got funds. Buy to sell classic Rafa mis–information. Hardly think shrewd businessmen like Hicks and Gillette are going to limit funds when they're LFC investment so close to paying off. 20m now could mean 50m+ when/if they sell. Rbs meetings probably re stadium. Transfer kitty = 23m sales, 20m owners/board (this includes approx. 10m Keane funds). Maybe a little more as the club did get some funds from Tottenham Ins= Aguero Athletico 15m + Babel (LFC has first choice and Rafa not going to let other Epl swoop), G Johnson Portsmouth 7m (max, he's a RB and want's to leave). Barry Aston Villa 8m (wants CL football and provide CM and LM cover. Finally if were lucky Lennon 16m. If he can be convinced he's future's at Anfield. Mank's just re signed their Korean RM and Ronaldo unlikely to move just yet. Aaron may not get his "dream" move. Fingers crossed. Ins 46m – Outs 23m = 23m investment.
  Marc Antoine Fortune (Nancy),will sign a 3 year deal with West Ham in the summer.
  Liverpool are now entering the race for french ace, Frank Ribery. He is certain to move on, but Real Madrid and Barcelona have been leading the chase. Van Gaal, the new Munich boss has targeted Ryan Babel in a swap deal, with Liverpool paying Munich an extra 16mil could be on the cards.

Xabi Alonso will be leaving to real Madrid which will see Sergio Ramos and Wesley Sneijder coming to Liverpool. Liverpool will have to also pay 8mil. Gareth Barry for 9mil is also being targeted.

Liverpool will not sign Tevez, due to a lack of funds, but they will sign Edin Dzeko for 11mil.

Liverpool are also chasing Jesus Fernandez with Liverpool having to pay compensation of 200k. Liverpool are also targetting Frano Zuculini and will probably sign him for 6mil.

Liverpool had an originial budget of 20mil from the owners. The Keane Transfer raises it to 32 mil and now a further 3mil since Spurs were not relgated. Voronin (3mil) Leto (3mil) Itjande (0.5mil) Hyypia & Pennant (free) Degen (2mil) Anderson (1mil) Hobbs (0.5mil) El Zhar (1mil) Plessis (loan) Spearing (loan) N'gog (loan)
  Don't believe what is being said in the media about Wenger 2 Real Madrid and him only having 13 million 2 spend. Real Madrid want Wenger and are hoping that the media will unsettle him enough 2 the Bernabeu and bring with him Fabregas and Clichy.

Wenger is a huge fan of Sahko and is most likely to make an 8 million bid for the young superstar. In addition Bassong is being watched with a view for a summer transfer (especially if Newcastle go down). As well as Valencia pair Raul Albiol and Carlos Marchena, Arsenal may rival Villa 4 Thomas Vermalen.

The youngsters will b signed, Wellington (16) has already signed a pre–contract. Eden Hazard has been watched very closely and despite the array of attacking talent at Arsenal it could well happen 4 around 7 million. Nordveit and Traore will come back from loans and Senderos and Silvestre will b sold.
  I live in Madrid and have just heard from a VERY RELIABLE source that once the Presidential elections are sorted Real will be offering Man Utd €50m+ for Vidic.

They see him as the perfect replacement for the recently departed Cannavaro
  Arsene wenger has come under huge pressure,everyone should back off and relialise that the the board are at fault ,how much money has he really been given,with 13 million he will still get a gem ,ive heard ;
