Football Rumours Archive October 21 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Apparently in january liverpool will go after standard liege trio:
Dieumerci M'Bokani
Alex Witsel
Steven Defour
With no one leaving
Other options are:
Lavezzi (who is not happy at napoli anymore wither are they with him)
Pandev (cheap as his contract is over at the end of this year)


Strachan to Boro to be confirmed in next 48 Hours. Shortlist of players drawn up. they include Celtic Players – Caldwell mcmanus robson and naylor Rangers players – Boyd and Novo Hearts – Driver.

Wont sign all of them but will try get as manay as possible. Sees this as oppotrunity to bring in players he knows from Scotland on the cheap and bed them into the english way for next year on Epl.


George Gillett was spotted at Prenton Park tonight for the Liverpool Reserve match and spent a lot of time on the phone. Apparently, he is here for the remainder of the week and will watch the game against Man Utd on Sunday where Prince Faisal will be amongst the guests and will try and thrash out a deal to buy a major stake in the club. He has since held crisis talks with Rafa Benitez along with his son Foster and Christian Purslow. Rafa has been told he has 3 games to turn the situation around or he his out. A heavy defeat against United will see him leave early next week. This is why Mascherano and Aurelio have come out in defence of Rafa and have said that its the players to blame not the manager. Not one player wants him to leave. To the guy who said Harry Redknapp to take over if Rafa leaves is absolutely spot on, your source must be credible. His son Jamie will be named as assistant with Joe Jordan taking the role as first team coach. Despite a lot of players being unhappy with Rafa's depaerture, no one will leave. Expect a couple of players to join Harry from Tottenham, he will once again sign Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon and Luka Modric. Trust me, this is what could happen, depending if Rafa can turn things around. If not, Liverpool team 2010/11
Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Aurelio, Lennon, Gerrard, Aquilani, Modric, Defoe, Torres.


If l'pool decide to sack rafa. AC Milan will be likely to sign rafa as manager and a rumour spreading around is that sir ALEX will sign or make a bid for modric in winter transfer window because spurs r lookin to sign Sandro to replace luka.

David Moyes spotted having dinner with Sven Goram Eriksson last night by my mate who waits on at the restaurant.


Roberto mancini jose mourinho martin o'neill
jurgen klinsman all been contacted about lfc job benitez to resign he'll be manager of madrid or valencia by january facts


The latest news from my Melwood source (he is a Hicks supporter): Benitez gone by early next week (pushed or resigns makes no odds) and replaced by either Keegan or Martin Jol.

Players to be on their way out in January include Torres (to Real Madrid with Benitez), Gerrard (to Barca), Mascherano (Barca), and Babel (Arsenal).

Those coming in include: Shawcross, Thierry Henry, David Villa, and Peter Crouch!


Rafa Benitez is on the brink of getting sacked at Liverpool after losing the last 4 games. Tom Hicks and George Gillett are lookin at Martin O`Neil , Zico , Jose Mourinho or Pep Guardiola to take charge.


Former Celtic manager Gordon Strachan is the clear favourite to replace sacked Gareth Southgate as manager of Middlesbrough.


Carles Puyol is not going to join any English side. He will either sign a new contract at Barcelona or will move to Italian giants AC Milan. This is 100% fact!

Yaya Toure may move to Man City on a six–month loan deal with Robinho going to Barcelona on the same deal. They will then discuss permanent transfers in the Summer (as Yaya want's to see if Man City can make the Champions League)


Souness to be offered the Boro job. Pass & Move


I have it on good authority that Liverpool are lining up another Spanish manager to replace Rafa Benitez in the Summer. The names on the list are; Pep Guardiola (Barcelona), Unai Emery (Valencia) and Manolo Jimenez (Sevilla). If Unai Emery takes the reigns then expect Rafa to head back to Valencia to help them out with their financial crisis and bring them back to the forefront of Spanish football. Valencia will then have wholesale changes, and a new president to chuck some money around and finally build the new Mestalla.

Outs are; David Silva (Manchester United), Cesar Sanchez (Retired), Miguel (Aston Villa), Nikola Zigic (Blackburn Rovers), Joaquin (Liverpool) and Manuel Fernandes (Everton)

The new president will be; Luis Bassat (who did an Apprentice style show in Spain) and he want's Rafael Benitez to replace Emery.

Rafa will then try and bring some Spanish talent to the team and retain David Villa. Big names on the list are Ignacio Camacho (Atletico Madrid), Javi Martinez (Athletic Bilbao) and Fernando Llorente (Athletic Bilbao). He may also try and sign Carles Puyol to improve the Valencia defence, as it is believed Puyol wants to stay in Spain, but not with Barcelona.


Liverpool to appoint Harry Redknapp and Bring son Jamie Redknapp onto the coaching team at Anfield.
Spurs to appoint Martin O`Neill Or Jose Mourinho been told to look out for O`Neill taking over t Spurs once Redknapp opts for Anfield.

Arsenal News
MR wenger will not sign players like they are going out of fashion, in fact i have it on good authority that only a small group of players are being looked at due to the new fifa ruling on homegrown players. These are as follows M.Richards(tired of life at city looking for a new home) Cahill (maybe pipped by Utd) Hart/Green one of these will be between the stick nxt season. Noble(seen as the english equivalent if Cesc decides to return home. As for forwards Gabby Agbongolor, Messi although you may laugh, wenger see's Bendtner and RVP as the future two with walcott/Arshavin and Vela in support. One day bendtner will wake up and actually be a quality striker!!!!! You heard that here first!!!!!!


"Sorry West ham fans this take over by Jim Bowe WILL NOT HAPPEN , the club is in way to much debt , and his backers (who I can name if you wish) don't have anywhere near the money to do this deal"
well crack on and name them then my son, i have it from someone on the board at UP that this deal is as good as done, minus all the paperwork fiasco that will follow.


Sorry West ham fans this take over by Jim Bowe WILL NOT HAPPEN , the club is in way to much debt , and his backers (who I can name if you wish) don't have anywhere near the money to do this deal

complete tosh the deal is very much on with tony cottee heavily involved expect deal to be completed by end of november.


Arsenal to make several signings very soon. The most likely will be 2 Center backs: one young and one with lots of experience so Sakho/Subotic or Puyol/Upson. Inler will joing and Diaby will leave. Carlos Vela or Nicklas Bendtner will leave. When this happens Agbonlahor or Dzeko will come in. Also Hazard will replace Rosicky. Green, Adler or Akinfeev wil come in. Almunia will also go. If Clichy or Sagna decide to move Van Der Wiel will come from Ajax


A friend of mine reckons Martin o'neil has been approached about taking over from Benitez when hes sacked after Liverpool lose to the Mancs on Sunday. Makes sense because I can't see a high profile manager getting involved with that lot at the moment. Im sure they would prefer someone like moyes but moyes would tell them to get stuffed after the shit hes had to put up with from Anfield. Also theres a rumor saying that the waiter has lost the dressing room even people like Torres and Gerrard are no longer on side. Couldnt happen to a more deserving lot really. only 1 club in England acts like its the biggest in the world because only 1 club has the persecuton complex that Liverpool has. Small mentality like a little man that pretends hes hard but is a soft arse really. Lmao at all there problems. Joke club and joke manager with joke fans. Helle (hahahahaha)


This will be Rafa's last season at Liverpool no matter what the outcome. Torres will not leave, Gerrard will not leave, Kuyt will not leave, Benayoun will not leave, Reina will not leave. These players have been rumoured to want out if Rafa leaves but it is not true. They will not leave, end of story. For next season, iether Harry Redknapp or Martin O'Neill will take over at Anfield, most probably Redknapp, with Kenny Dalglish becoming assistant. Ashley Young will become the first major acquisition for Liverpool for 26.7m. Simon Kjaer and Steven Defour will also sign for 12m and 10m respectively. Gabby Agbonlahor will sign for 16m if Martin O'Neill becomes manager. Other wise, Luis Suarez will sign for 14m.

To fund these deals, Javier Mascherano will leave for Inter Milan for 38m. Andriy Voronin will return to Germany with hamburg for 4m, Philipp Degen will join Panathinaikos for 2m, Ryan Babel will try Sevilla for 10.8m, Sotirios Kyrgiakos will leave for Anderlecht for 1m and Martin Skrtel will go to Genoa for 9m.


Have it on good authority that this is Thierry Henrys last season in La Liga, He will be moving after the world cup, and not to arsenal like people are saying on this, but he will be infact moving to the USA to play in the MLS, remember you heard it hear first!
Jonny Black Boots, 21.10.09


United will buy a keeper if VDS decides this will be his last year. If not, they will wait another season to buy either Akifeev, Neuer, Asenjo, Cesar, etc. A winger is a top priority, and it seems pretty clear that United have already made an offer for David Silva, and given Valencia's cash problems, he might be willing to take the risk of moving before the WC. If not, this summer for sure. 21–27mil likely. Then it is reasonable to expect that another 3–4 players could be bought, although the squad is very large and young players like Obertan, Macheda, Wellbeck and Ljajic will be given chances. Lots of players have been listed, but as far as I can tell the following are players who are most likely to be pursued by United (Obv not all will be, but a list of likely candidates). Douglas Costa, Alex Teixeira, Luis Fabiano, Maicon, David Villa, Steven Defour, Eden Hazard, Stevan Jovetic , etc. But as always, Fergie will grab a player or two that haven't been mentioned...Thanks everyone for keeping this site active between transfer windows...It both gets me from match to match, and transfer window to transfer window. Cheers...
