Football Rumours Archive August 22 2008


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Expect to see Ben Watson to arrive at the City Ground after the Watford game from Palace.

Bet Derby wish they had kept M.Johnson & Big Darren Moore now that Stubbs has called it a day and Leacock is off to Cardiff/Sheff Utd. They need to keep the proud record of goals conceded up some how!
  "dont know where all this money is coming from, but don't tell the bank manager." who ever said this the drumvaile consortium we are on the verge of signing a left back anton.

Owen will go to manu 10mil
Alonso staying at liverpool
Barry to Aresenal 15mil
  To the guy who said

'turn the tables for a minute. if chelsea offered 30million for torres tomorrow would you like rafa to roll over and accept, or fight for your player or for a better price at least???'

Chavs have offered 50mill for Torres which was rejected on all fronts (rafa.parry, g&H). Chavs have also apparently offered 75mill which was also rejected.

anyway now for some rumours.
Liverpool are apparently after Wilson Palacios (wigan) who value him in the 18million bracket.
also Lucas maybe sold (could be loan) to Espanol
  Armand Traore's move to Portsmouth could see the departure of fellow new team mate and left back Djimi Traore. The former Liverpool defender could now leave the club with Stoke City and Fulham interested in the player.
  Former spain international Albert Luque in talks with English championship side Norwich City.
  MON is a moron:

To the guy defending MON, I use to like MON until the Barry incident. Any Liverpool fans like the one who made you defend MON in the first place are well entitled to their opinions.
MON rightly so could name any price he wanted for his player just like any of us selling a car would do. If you dont want to pay the price fair enough. This does not make MON a moron.
What does make him a moron though is the way he goes on.
The potential transfer was largely believed to be leaked at the Villa end but broke with a Liverpool newspaper. Rafa simply confirmed he had a discussion with MON. End of. While Harry Redknapp is telling the world who he'd like to sign (inc 2 LFC players) Rafa is getting criticised by MON etc. . when all he said was he spoke to MON in April about it. MON denies it was a discussion, and twisted Rafa's words to make him out to be a liar.
He did the same to Barry over the MON was too busy at the Euro's incident.
Then he does the same to LFC over the transfer deadline, twisting the fact that on the deadline day LFC were less than an hour late with Villa's valuation. Claiming they had all summer etc. . but thats still not explaining why you would reject the bid less than an hour after the deadline passed.
P.S. He complained about Rafa's media talk which was only a sentence if even, when he went running to the AVFC website everytime something happened to tell the world.
And before you try and explain what a deadline means. Dont forget MON's Barry can leave before the window shuts if the valuation is made.
Needless to say, you may carry yourself in this manner, but people who think he is a Moron are well placed to think so.
Three words for MON stubborn, Childish, Moron

From LFC perspective (And many more):

Alonso= cost 10 valued 16 mill
Maschreno= 18 mill
Torres= 20 mill appro

How is Brry worth 18 mill.

P.s I dont care how much Utd paid for English players, they were ripped off cause they had the money
  Shaun Maloney will be a Celtic player again by the end of the day, with Lee Naylor moving the other way to provide left back cover for MON.

MON's increased bid of £9m will be accepted by Mike Ashley triggering a massive fall–out with King Kev. It is probable that Craig Gardner will move to Tyneside as part of the deal: with Sidwell signed in central midfield and Young doing well at right back, Gardner now sees fewer first team starts at Villa Park.

Villa's ability to pay cash for Roque Santa Cruz as well as the strong relationship with Brad Friedel will finally bring the Paraguayan to Villa Park next week.

Gareth Barry will finally move next week – but the world's worst kept secret is that his move will be to Arsenal rather than Liverpool. O'Neill is desperate not to sell Barry to the Reds after the spectacular and very public row with Rafa.
  If Everton do not complete the signings of atleast 2 of the following by the close of the transfer window, extended to midnight on September 1st, David Moyes could walk. Vagner Love, Alan Smith, Stephane M'Bia and Joao Moutinho are his list of targets whilst Tiago is also on a list compromised of 6. Moyes wants atleast 1 midfielder and 1 striker. If Moyes walks, Sam Allardyce looks set to replace him at Goodison Park, with Mike Newell to be seperately appointed as his assistant.
  Di Maria is going to Chelsea no doubt. if you go for united unlucky because in summer we will sign aguero, benzema and huntelaar.
  To all my fellow Reds fans, every rumour on here is exactly that, its all far from the truth, there is no substantial material whatsoever. The talks between Rafa & Rick Parry were simple, Rafa handed in his resignation to Rick Parry due to his frustration with the owners. They promised to back him with funds, which in all fairness, they have done, but they also promised to back him with any signings, which they havent (Gareth Barry). Rafa felt undermimed by this and felt that he had no other alternativeother than to leave. Tom Hicks loves Rafa's coaching, personality, but not his transfer policy. The reason why Rafa decided to stay, is the fact that Hicks has promised him that his job is guarenteed next year no matter how much Liverpool fails this year. Also, The owners have guarenteed Rafa has their full support in the remainder of the transfer window, but, not for Gareth Barry.
  lfc 2 sign jeremy menez and joysten drenthe with silva coming next season if valencia finish behind euro spots
  Celtic to sign breschino from under the noses of rangers– yeah sure why would you want him, Maloney, Nakamura and mc geady?don't write rubbish in bitterness he will go ahead and move to ibrox meaning the end for burke, joining him going out the exit door will be Adam, Gow, Hemdani, Broadfoot, cousin and Dailly.
As well as Breschino a left back and center back will be bought with Berra, Reynolds and anderson being looked for center half and either wallace or naysmith likely to be bought to be first choice left–back.
  Everton to sign M'bia, Moutinho and Zigic on loan. Only three but any will do now for us!
  Birmingham have been scouring Europe for some quality players at the back. It's become famous that Birmingham need defenders. Birmingham won't be signing Balde as it's thought the fans won't warm to him. Several scouts have been to Lithuanian side FBK Kaunas to take a look at a few of their players. Pascal Mendy is one of them and the other being Adrian Mroweic. Mendy is a Senegalese international and Mroweic is seen as a very promising player that could be the next Vidic.

Birmingham have also taken a look at Argentine Raul Ledesma and are rumoured to be ready to make a £3m pound move for the 29 year–old. He is a midfielder and has been capped three times by his international team.

Watch this space, Alex McLeish is going to make Birmingham awesome.
  +++ AFC Bulletin +++

Possable move by AC MILAN 4 Senderos instead of Shevchenko . If Chelsea sign Robinho you might see Joe Cole leave Chelsea and move 2 AFC .
  Edu work permit been accepted. expext a midfield player from palmero to sign next friday.
  My kid brother is on the Yts programme with Man U, He said that Alex Ferguson was showing Karim Benezema around carrington this morning, also he reckons saha(sale) manuncho(loan) headed the other direction?
  Big News

Manchester City have agreed a fee with Hamburg SV for defender Vincent Kompany. The club will now be discussing personal terms with the player and Kompany will become Citys third signing this summer. With another Tal Ben Haim also having been signed, this means City could be planning to try and sell Micah Richards and Richard Dunne very late into the summer. Newcastle could be interested in Dunne, while both Manchester United and Arsenal would be interested in Richards (although Arsenal would not sign him this summer as they only want a midfielder). More big news. Arsene has said in an interview that 'there is always interest' in Gareth Barry. One of Gareth Barry, Xabi Alonso and Gokan Inler will be an Arsenal player by September 1st.

Thanks for reading,
  Brian Barwick is quitting his job at the FA because he has a new one lined up as CEO of Liverpool FC working under the new owners DIC who will take over in September when Gillett and Hicks finally admit they have no money for the new stadium and the NWDA withdraws funding for the regeneration of the Anfield area. This will turn the city council and the government against G&H and force them to make a sale at a much lower price to DIC. Rafa will stay on and be given a huge warchest in time for the January window. Barry will be his first purchase. Then he'll start spending megabucks.
  I know several first team players at HEARTS and there are more rumblings of discontent. The players are furious at the treatment of goalkeeper Steve Banks, and Csaba László is on the brink of quitting over the level of Vladmir Romanov's interference. Romanov has insisted that Csaba bring in the goalkeeper and goalkeeping coach from his other side KAUNAS.
Csaba has publically supported both appointments but has confided in his players that he is furious. Romanov has increased his interference to the point where some players have been excluded from training, and Romanov has even insisted on particular training excercises being completed. HEARTS are on the brink of a massive internal collapse unless Romanov steps back.
  Maloney back to the hoops in next 48hrs also a left backNaylor on way back to to come in before deadline day as Naylor wants back to England for family reasons
  To the person that said: With Nyron Nosworthy dropping down the pecking order at Sunderland, behind new signing Pascal Chimbonda & David Bardsley, he will soon be out on loan to Sheffield wednesday.

That is total rubbish, Nyron is a centre back and pascal a right back so how has he dropped down pecking order and second poiint david bardsley who is that? dont you mean phil

Keane has bids for healy accepeted working on benni, anton thinking about it but he is still looking for a left back.
  Norwich are very close to signing

mark viduka from newcastle on loan for 6months, newcaslte wanna send him out to get match fitness
  To the guy who claimed Chelsea have already made a bid for Di Maria–––no they have not. they are still after Robinho and why on earth they would splash more than £45 million on two players who play in the same position?? They will get Robinho but NOT di Maria. . and for your kind information Man United are still leading the race for him. .

Now some real news–– Sir Alex has been frustrated with Spurs because he thinks they are dragging the Berbatov saga out of his control. .so he is looking at the other options at the moment and now seriously considering a £32 mil+ Saha bid for Lyon ace Karim Benzema. . .hope he alongwith Di Maria signs on the deadline day. .
  Hearts Fc

Hearts are close to agreeing a loan move for Mitchell Schet.Mindaugas Nikolicius and Anatoly Korobochka met the player and his representives last week and are close to an agreement with Feyenoord who are keen for the player to gain first team experience.
  Shrff Wed Plymouth and Burnley are all keen to take James Wilson on loan for the season he is currently impresing on loan at Brentford from Bristol City and all three championship clubs are trying to take him when his loan period runs out in a couple of weeks time,officilas at Brentford whee amaized by the number od scouts that turned up on Sat to run there eye over the tall centre back who has impressed with his assured performances for the bees
  My dad is the groundsman at liverpool.f.c and told me that rafa benitez has made a 13 million pound bid for joaquin 10 million upfront with 3 million depending on goals and appearences
  'transfermobile' – what a don, keep it up and why don't you have a few day trips to other cities? Newcastle might be fun.
Speaking of which, Warnock (Stephen, not Neil) is still very much on kk's radar while the Wise men are stalking talent throughout Europe during the last few days of the window.
  All you saying that stewy downing goin to liverpool could'nt be further from the truth. i know stewy very well & he will stay at the boro but if they dont qualify for europe or push on like he wants he knows that mufc want him to replace ryan giggs & will join them rather than lfc as he knows lfc have as much chance of glory as the boro. also expect another 2 signings at boro before deadline , one being jimmy bullard
  Manchester united to sign:
berbatov £28m
richards £14m
and either david silva £22m

will sign aguero in january for £34m

come on the reds!!!!!! 18th title here we come :D
  Now that keane has secured cisse @ healey, the next two to follow are expected to be ferdinand and gael givet a left sided defender from cisse's french team marseille. their chairman has said he is in talks with a premiership side, (believed to be sunderland ). dont know where all this money is coming from, but don't tell the bank manage.
  Something I just heard from a reliable source. Xabi Alonso will only move to Arsenal if they allow Walcott to move in exchange. Wenger is against this and Rafa won't budge so it is stalemate at the moment.
  I am a 100% Newcastle fan, i love the club but our fans need to get their heads out of the clouds. Roque Santa Cruz?
We will sign 2 more players but they will not be amazing as we already have signed 3 very good players and Bassong.
Craig Gardner (£2m) Aston Villa
Pocognolli (£1.3m) AZ Alkmaar
Ameobi will make a loan move to Ipswich to prove he is fit with a option of a permanent move in a years time.
  To the liverpool fan who said MON is a moron, can i just ask you why??

is it because he wouldnt roll over and let you take our best player??

turn the tables for a minute. if chelsea offered 30million for torres tomorrow would you like rafa to roll over and accept, or fight for your player or for a better price at least???

just cause MON didnt let ye walk all over us like Ramos did with keane doesnt mean he is a moron.

sorry this isnt a rumour but this guy annoyed me.
  Man utd news:

sir alex will make 2 more signings before the window closes these are angel di maria from benfica and either roque santa cruz or roman Pavlyuchenko he has given up on berbatov as spurs want 2 much. january will see a deal with udinese for the trasfer of Alexis Sanchez who will then come in the summer with sir alex's star buy karim benzema at which time ronaldo will depart to real madrid with a big smile on his face and a shed load of cash in his wallet although i doubt he'll get the pludit's or the medals he got at united it didnt work out 4 beckham, so if he chooses money over medals who r we 2 judge, i'll thank him 4 the memories and the trophys and wish him the best. we always bounce back after the loss of key players, sir alex has it covered.
hail the red army.
  To the person who said Robbie Fowler to Spurs. you are joking. . ritte. .
