  Liverpool Rumours

The un–named club who have been bought by a member of the UAE could be us, with Gillett looking to sell all his shares and settle for retirement.

Unfortunately it looks like Masch is on his way to Barca, thanks to the missus not being able to setttle! Probably a straight £40 million deal, although around £25m plus Bojan is possible. This may turn out to be the reason why Tevez isn't coming to Anfield. It can't be because of the rivalry because him going to City would be just as bad if not worse!
Arbeloa is probably on his way out too, £8m to Real Madrid. Dosenna will return to Italy, £6.5m to Juve. Voronin to Germany for £2m.
A £60m offer for Torres will be on tha table from Chelsea soon, and will be laughed at by Rafa. Also Alonso is staying put.

Villa and Silva will FINALLY arrive at Anfield with the money we get for Masch, however if the deal is a cash+Bojan then it will only be Silva.
Johnson will be announced on Monday after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical the weekend.
A centre half (possibly Richards) or a holding midfielder to replace Mascherano will be bought with the money from Arbeloa and Dosenna, and if there's anything left a LB to cover Aurelio.

People think we have no money but Rafa has already said he's got enough to get what he wants, and surely a top 4 team want to spend at least £15–20 million. Then there's £40m for Masch and £14.5m for Arb and Dosenna, plus £2m for Voronin. There's around £77 million to spend on Villa and Silva (£40m), Johnson (10m+Crouch funds) and a £10m midfielder. If Babel goes there's another £11m, so that's still £20m for a left back and centre back!

Rafa knows what he's doing.
  "Sheikh Ahmed bin Saqr al–Qassimi, member of a ruling family in the United Arab Emirates, has bought a majority stake in an unnamed Premier League club.
Sheikh Ahmed, a member of the ruling family Ras al–Khaimah, will be honorary chairman of the club.
Ras al–Khaimah is one of seven members in the UAE federation which also includes key oil producer Abu Dhabi and regional trade and tourism hub Dubai. (WAM news agency)"

Wondering if anyone has more information on who this may be?

Personally i believe its Liverpool or Pompey.
  Saw prestons simon whaley at our ground the other day, he said there was interest from us in him. .
  Landon Donovan is being linked with a move to Celtic. After his last europe trip with Munich he feels that he could establish him at Celtic with SPL and CL or Uefa cup action then move on to the EPL.

Celtic will also off load Boruc to Juventus. Buffon is being linked with a move to the EPL or Madrid.
  These are the sure transfers going to happen:
  Just read this – Sheikh Ahmed bin Saqr Al Qasimi has purchased 60% of an English Premier League Football Club. The report doesn't mention which club, but says it will be announced in the next few days.
  Tim cahill spottedat emirates stadium what the??
  Michael McIndoe to Sheffield Utd.
  Bids are coming in for Stephen Sobbie of Queen of the South. Martinez had a bid sanctioned before he went to Wigan but may be hold until new Management team reviews the Swansea squad. Ian McCall (Partick T) is known to want to poach his old club for the hitman and 2 SPL clubs have been tracking SD since January.

Expect a successful bid to be inthe £500–600k range +perf bonuses and possibly a loan agreement structure after 1 year.
  Man Utd news:Tevez is definitely leaving and Ronaldo is almost gone however there is a hold up in the deal due to money. Expect Fergie to go for De rossi Dodo Douglas Costa David Silva Alexis Sanchez and Benzema. Bids for Buffon will be made but he doesn't want to leave Turin. Also expect a last minute bid for Johnson but expect him to end up at Liverpool. A lot of young talent being bought also expect Edin Hazard. Would personally love to see Giovinco from Juventus he is a Zola type player but I don't think it will happen.

Going out will be Ronaldo to Real Madrid. Tevez who will go to City for the money. Kuschak (spelling) to Zenit. Campbell to Wigan. I think Berbatov leaving is 50/50 Fergie would like to give him one year to prove himself but if someone offers 20 m expect Fergie to pack his bags for him. Nani will be loaned out or used as part of a deal for silva or benzmea.

So to recap ins:

De rossi for 18m
Dodo for 9m
Douglas Costa for 15m
David Silva 22m
Alexis Sanchez 15m
Edin Hazard 12m

Ins = 91 m


Ronaldo to Real for 80 m
Campbell to Hull or Wigan for 8m
Berbatov maybe to either milan club or man city for 20 m
Nani 12 m or P/X or loan.

Arsenal have had a bid accepted for Felipe Melo, the deal involves Phillipe Senderos going the other way.

Mamadou Sakho will sign in the next few weeks, which means either Toure or Gallas will be sold.

And finally Adebayor will be sold to Chelsea or AC Milan for around £20m – £25m and he will be replaced by Marouane Chamakh for £8m

  There has been contact from Dubai International Capital to buy Liverpool but that is it there has been no takeover behind the scenes. As you probably know George Gillet has sold his NHL team so Tom Hicks will know follow his and sell his franchise and they WILL start work on Stanley Park Stadium soon.
  ––––––––Barnsley FC, Rangers, Bristol City––––––––

i heard from a reliable source that jermaine beckford has been seen round oakwell. i also heard that charlie adam is on his way from rangers for 500k and that anderson de silva may be joining bristol city for £1m and michael mcindoe (rip–off!!)
  Just heard through a hugely reliable source that RANGERS are to sign Kevin Davies from Bolton for around £1.5m!!
Sensational signing. .this guy will score for fun in the SPL and he finally gets a chance to try the champions league.
Value for money – best move of the summer without a doubt.
Also heard the three options for a left mid are Driver, Lovenkrands and Riordan. I don't think we can afford Driver so my money is on the Dane returning or Deeks finally coming to fulfill his undoubted potential.
Also, Barry Ferguson will join Birmingham in a £1m deal, Boyd staying put though.

  To the guy who said Liverpool can't have been sold as they would have to announce it on the stock market; WRONG!
Liverpool are a PRIVATE limited company, only PUBLIC limited companies, ie companies whose shares are for general sale, are quoted on the stock market and have to announce major changes there.

El Nino
  Celtic hoping to tie up the signings of fortune and fletcher by 1st july and they are also after left backs but on ly 1 will sign
david murphy 2–3 million
paul robinson 500k
or sylvinho free
james mccarthey 2–3 mill
brian easton 500k–1mill
zander diamond 1–2mill

outs will b
bobo,hartley,samaras,naylor,big jan and naka
maybe mcmanus

rangers look to b signin billy mehmat and chris brunt but bougerra, ferguson, boyd and mendes could all b movin down south

  To the guy who wrote

Sup ppl!

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!

I take it ur referring to the irish doctor gary o driscoll. We do not have a french doctor.
  Just raising some valueable questions
could the 3rd party interested in Wigan's Valancia be Sunderland
they have the money and the gaffer???
moving on being a leeds supoter if delph and beckford move on i would like them to sign for Everton
i feel like Moyes can groom them better and give them a chance e.g. Rodwell and Baxter what would Leeds supporters think about this
could SAF have a master plan in place following the drawn out departure of RON he has been quiet and so has Silva and what about the jan signings of tosic and lajic next Rons? v
pls comment on my comments love the feedback
  These are just some rumours ive heard for AFC.

With the signing of vermaelen, RVP will sign a new deal. the striker has made it no secret that he has a good relationship with the defender, and will believe that arsenal will challenge for trophys next year.Also, melo will be the ideal candidate for the needed DM position. he is the ideal age and has experience on the top level.if ade leaves then expect dzeko/huntelaar to come in. we have been chasing these two for a while, and i think huntelaar would prefer a move to the emirates rather than white hart lane.there will also be a couple of yongsters coming in.

and to people saying sneijder will join.
i wish.
im an arsenal supporter and would love to see him play for the gunners next year, but face it, he'll probably have better offers come in for him, players of his quality don't just get given away
  First of all, why would kevin thomson ever move to septic when he is guarenteed the rangers captaincy within a year, he won't move anywhere and will finish his career at rangers probably, davie weir will sign a new contract and will be offered a player–coach role but will retire at the end of next season at the age of 40. now to some real rumours:

ranngers ins:
tonel £2mil (sporting lisbon)
alan hutton £2mil+mcgregor (spurs)
nigel reo–coker £1.5mil (aston villa)
chris brunt £1.5mil+ferguson (west brom)
fabio loan (manchester united)
sydney govou £3mil (lyon)
ben foster loan (manchester united)

brahim hemdani – released
christian dailly – released
ferguson – west brom
alan mcgregor – spurs
lee mculloch £1.5mil – stoke
pedro mendes £5mil – benfica or lazio
steven smith £100,000 – st mirren or hibs
charlie adam £450,000 – blackpool
youngsters out on loan

you heard it here first, here we go 9 more to go WATP!
  Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is waiting Barcelona to officially bid for Javier Mascherano. The Blaugrana are about to bid €35m, but Liverpool are holding out for at least €50m. However, Rafa will ask for €25m plus Bojan Krkic and Yaya Toure in exchange for Mascherano. Guardiola is inclined to accept as he wants to do anything to buy the Argentina captain. Yaya Toure will wear number 6 and Bojan will wear number 10.

Glen Johnson has returned from his holiday and is on Merseyside currently having a medical. He has said to friends that he 'Hates' Chelsea and everything about them, which is why he chose Liverpool. The deal will become official on Monday for £17.5m. He will wear number 2 as Dossena is off to Genoa for £6m as Juventus are opting to sign Fabio Grosso instead.

David Silva is their prime target for the left wing and Rafa is willing to pay £21.5m for him. If he doesn't sign then Rafa will switch his attentions to Ashley Young and are willing to bid £23m. If Young doesn't sign then Rafa will return to his old club Valencia for Juan Mata and is willing to pay £19m. Either player will wear number 7.

Lastly Steven Defour will opt for the Reds and will reject Aston Villa. He will sign as a back up in centre midfield for £8m. He will wear number 20

So Liverpool's signings will be
2. Glen Johnson (£17.5m)
6. Yaya Toure p/x
7. David Silva(£21.5m)/Ashley Young(£23m)/Juan Mata(£19m)
10. Bojan Krkic p/x
20.Steven Defour (£8m)

Leaving will be
2. Andrea Dossena (£6m)
10. Andriy Voronin (£4m)
17. Alvaro Arbeloa (£8m)
19. Ryan Babel (£9m)
21. Lucas (£7m)
27. Philipp Degen (£2m)

Martin Skrtel will wear number 3, Emiliano Insua will wear number 4, Dani Pacheco will wear number 17, Steven Darby will wear number 19, Martin Kelly will wear number 21, Lauri Dalla Valle will wear number 32 and David Amoo will wear number 34
  Just to get something off my chest:
After the season he's just had, Billy Sharp is worth next to nothing.
After the season he's just had, Jermaine Beckford is worth 2.5–3mil. To the delusional Blades thinking this is a fair trade, you are typical Sheffield United fans; hopelessly over–confident. Some must still think they are in the Premier League or something.
But to congratulate the Liverpool fan (one among many) who stated that Rafa was signing young English players, as you have got names and prices bang on. Why else would the wacky Spaniard be offloading all of his foreign full–backs, and targetting Glen Johnson? Rafa is preparing for 6+5. Over disputed transfers, these seem some likely moves:
Simon Cox – Swindon to Celtic (2.5mil)
Carlos Tevez – Kia to Manchester City (25.5mil)
Frazier Campbell – Manchester United to Hull (5mil)
Karim Benzema – Lyon to Manchester United (27mil)
Chris Brunt – Parachute Payments Galore to Celtic (3.7mil)
Samuel Eto'o – Barcelona to Manchester City (25mil)
Roque Santa cruz – Blackburn to Manchester City (18mil)
Adam Johnson – Boro to Liverpool (P/ex P. Degen + fee)
Manu Adebayor – Arsenal to AC Milan (17mil)
Moussa Dembéle – AZ to Arsenal (15mil)
Rickie Lambert – Bristol Rvrs to Bristol City (P/ex D. Noble + fee)
Grant Holt – Shrewsbury to Crystal Palace (£670k)
Charlie Barnett – Tranmere to Cardiff (£720k)
Jermaine Beckford – Leeds to Burnley (3mil)
Fabian Delph – Leeds to Everton (6.5mil)
Andrew Whing – Brighton to Reading
Micheal Mifsud – Coventry to Leeds
Sean St. Ledger – Preston to Portsmouth (1.4mil)
Darius Vassell – Manchester City to Wolves
Valeri Bojinov – Manchester City to Palermo
Daniel Sturridge – Manchester City to Chelsea (9mil)
Ched Evans – Manchester City to Celtic (3.9mil)
Micheal Johnson – Manchester City to Portsmouth

Your postman, Malcolm Shaffer
  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. .

to the guy who put this your dpot on with the young uraguayin winger his names Jonathan Urretaviscaya and he is believed to be sensational prospect and a host of clubs including arsenal and milan have shown interest but rumour has it hes already signed for LFC
  I told you Mowbray was leaving for Celtic and there number one choice was Ince.But on Friday night in Bromsgrove Jeremy Peace was seen in talks with Derek Mcinnes.Not sure if this great news for the Albion as the next appointment is crucial.I think a more experienced man is required!
  Enough of your lies! I have a good source at Rangers and i can 100% GUARANTEE that Rangers WON'T sell any of the following: Bougherra, Mendes, Thompson, Davis, Edu or Boyd. Walter Smith and David Murray are completely agreed on this, and although every other player in the squad has his price – these guys WON'T be sold unless an outrageous offer (we're talking Alan Hutton prices here) comes in – ok everybody? Players coming in MAY include: Brunt, Driver, Tonel or Stranzl, McArthur, Dorman and the biggy. . . . Micheal Owen! You may laugh, but i can confirm that Rangers are one of the clubs his representatives are in talks with. Whether his financial demands can be met remains to be seen (I.E. no). Please notice i did not mention the usual tales of Gennaro Gattuso's homesick wife, the famous 'Alan Hutton refund', 'life–long Rangers–fan' Alan Smith, Peter bloody Lovenkrands (why would you want him back anyway?) or David 'he's fom N.Ireland you know' Healy' – As there is ABSOLUTELY NO TRUTH in any of these stories. Thanks
  Well, sky sports news will 'break the news' we all know about Glen Johnson signing a 5 year deal at LFC. Expect them to break this 'shocking' developement mid morning monday lol. Am hearing Alonso wants a move but Rafa's told him NO! (chuffed as he is getting better!). Sadly have also heard Masch is goin to Barca LFC will get no more than £25m for him but we will get a player first choice being Bojan (who knows though). This would leave Rafa with about 35–40m to spend an i would expect a LW an CM take your pick of Adam Johnson/Silva/Martinez/Cana or the young west ham lad! Also Rafa has been lookin at Micah Richards for a while and our scouts have been at the last few U21 games! DIC will not buy LFC stop writing it! They are an investment company and LFC would not be financially viable for them at the moment BUT the Sheik himself (as hes tried previously) may buy the club. NOT DIC!
To gooners, what is your problem. I'm an LFC fan so not an avid disciple of the school teacher but i concede he has worked wonders at your club. Wenger took you on an changed youse from a club in decline, to prem champs! He destroyed the boring tag youse rightly had. an bought and developed some quality players– Henry, Bergkamp, Cesc, Ashley Cole, RVP. Do youse have no loyalty? No memory? No common sense. I reckon you should all be embarrased at how u slag him off! As for youse buying no one, as one die hard fan (make me laugh) wrote– erm. . Vermaelen 11m lad, or did i imagine that (and he is quality and still young). Theres a reason LFC fans are the best in the world and a reason why arsenal fans are NOT! Sad
  Hello there! Just a comment for the arsenal fan who thinks they can brow beat nufc into letting bassong go on the cheap. He is one of the few players at the club who is not on astronomical wages, therefore not one of the gits we really need to offload. He WILL be leaving but i would expect for about 5–6 mill. Colocini, on the other hand, well you can have him for two fag ends and a golf ball.

  Swedish U21 striker OLA TOIVONEN to CELTIC. He's currently at PSV but will move for around £5 mil. Hopefully he's the natural successor to King Henrik!
  Talkin to mike owens relative in a local pub, he has said that it is either villa or everton because lfc don't want him (shame).

owen preferes efc but is reluctant to join because of the bitter blue nosed fans(just kiddin)
  Everyone saying glen johnson will sign for liverpool on monday is 100% wrong, he is going to liverpool but portsmouth are currently in due dilligence this means it is ILLEGAL for us to buy or sell anyone

and why is someone saying distin will go to liverpool for £2m when we rejected £10m off arsenal in january
  To the person who said :

'LFC are in talks with swapping javier mascherano for samuel eto'o. liverpool are also interested in boro youngster adam johnston and hereford youth player adam morgan. heard it hear first!'

You were correct about the eto'o for Mascherano swap, but Adam Morgan from Hereford a 'youth player'?? I think not.

He is at least 25 and despite a successful trial, Benitez wants to see whether or not Fernando Torres is still at Anfield next season before taking a gamble on Morgan.

Having seen him play though, I don't see it as a gamble. Morgan could become the next Ian Wright, starting out late in his pro career and then setting the country alight. He really does look special and it does not reflect kindly on the country's scouting system that he's has slipped through the net for so long.

This is more of a 'fact' than rumour, as I personally know Morgan's agent Martin Williams.

More soon!!

As we know, Arsenal were not strong enough at the defensive mid. .AW will try to improve the squad at that area. .the departure of Flamini is still hard to face by Arsenal. .I think Yaya Toure is a great player to be at that position. With the speculations saying that Yaya toure will come, I think, it is the best for the squad!
  To the guy who said its not possible for LFC to be sold and the deal kept quiet until a certain date because it has to be reported to the stock exchange. . you are wrong. Only a public limited company (PLC) has to notify the stock exchange. . a privately owned one, like LFC, MUFC , Chelsea etc have no need to report as any sale would be a private one. I have no idea whether they have been sold or not, but with Parry gone and Moores resigning it is not beyond the realms of possibility that a deal is in the offing, and with DIC pulling out last time during the period of `due diligence` because they felt Moores and Parry werent honourable in listening to the American Tom & Jerry offer, it may be a pre–condition of any deal that they are not involved with the club. Kluge
Rainfishtrombone u muppet United didn't let tevez go he REJECTED them, so get your facts straight.

Arsenal to sign
Melo–12 mill plus senderos
  I have got a shockmove fulham are close to signing gudjohnsen from barca.

paul scholes, gary neville and john oshea are rummor to be going to sunderland in a deal involving kenwen jones.

Also everton are also intrested in signing oshea and scholes.

Paul Scharner has a medical this Tuesday at Motspur Park.

Man City have agreed the Transfer of Jo but he wants to return to Everton.

Giles Barnes will come back on Loan until Jan with a view to a permanant move.

Onyewu has received an offer from Fulham but is not guranteed a first team place so will probably say no.

The Inside man.
  Where does everybody think all liverpools money is coming from rafa has said we only need 2/3 players so most of theese supossed rummors are un true.

Riera will not be going anywhere pure class and rafa knows this.

Johnson and richards and a strikers

and loan deals

My mates girlsfriend whos works at old trafford has told us that their is a proposed offer from sunderland the deal is

neville scholes and oshea to sunderland with kenwyen jones going to ot with saf being a big fan of him
  I had earlier posted on about Valencia and Douglas costa being a done deal, well my contacts in the coaching staff have also informed me tht the Dodo deal is done and Benzema bid has been accepted and its just a matter of time before he signs, expect another midfielder to come and a chance that Sir Alex might bring Giusippe Rossi back.
United Scouts are at the Euro U–21 tournament and there's a good chance that 1 or 2 players who do well there might get signed.
He's still looking for a GK and has cooled off interest in Valdes and Pele, Akinfeev has come onto the radar now and so has Asenjo like i earilier said.
  Kevin Phillips will complete a move to Huddersfield Town in the near future on a player/coach role.

This move has come about because Town manager Lee Clark has stated He's best mates with Phillips and Kev won't be getting regular Football at Brum because of the Strikers they are bringing in. Town are also paying for Kevin Phillips' coaching badges.

Watch this space.

Huddersfield Town insider!

The future is bright, the future is blue & white.
  '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!'

I find it funny how little you know about football players. David Villa has been quoted as saying the only non–spanish team he could ever play for is Liverpool. Fernando Torres turned down Man United countless times before moving to Liverpool (you'll never walk alone armband), and Sergio Aguero has spoke about his support for Liverpool numerous times. 'When they won in Instanbul i celebrated like i had just scored a goal'.

Oh and Cissoko, who is on the verge of a 15 million move to ac milan, made the 4–1 sign after playing Manchester United.

But yeah, nobody wants to play for Liverpool!

Outs: Hyypia, Degen, Arbeloa, Dossena, Babel, Alonso OR Mascherano.

Ins: Johnson, Richards, Bojan OR Negredo in a swap deal, if Aguero can not be afforded, Silva and a central midfielder to replace the one who departs. Hamsik and Martinez are possibilities.
  To gers no1 fan , darren barr will not sign with rangers hes a bigger tim than me and i go to all the games, scott arfield is also a celtic fan! so don't think these 2 will be going to rangers ,they hope to wear the hoops or will go to england.FACT.
  (Manchester United FC)
Ben Foster and Anderson will bge given a make or break season next season. Both will play a lot more first team games in bids to land world cup places, Foster especially.

Wes Brown will join Everton for around £7m and will be replaced by Inter Milan and Brazil right back Maicon for around £20m.

Luis Antonio Valencia will sign for the club but will not be a definate starter as United will also sign David Silva for £22m from Valencia and Fergie will sign Argetine Sergio 'kun' Aguero and try and convert him to a right sided midfielder.

Also joining will be French target man Karim Benzema for around £30m from Lyon after the Lyon president has given up on his hopes of keeping the french international.

Three potential world class players will be signed Dodo will sign from Corinthians for £4m as well as fellow Brazilian Douglas Costa from Gremio for £6m and Eden Hazard will join from Lille for £8m.

Luis Nani will return to Portugal joining Sporting CP for £6m plus Miguel Veloso. Veloso will start in Owen Hargreaves' place until he returns from injury.

Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs will retire as Fergie will sign young replacements.

Fraizer Campbell's impresive Under 21 tournament has earned himself a future at United.
  Burnley will sign jimmy briand from ennes for 3mill and kieron gibbs on loan
  Man utd:
Douglas costa–20m
(ribery is not coming)

  Celtic Celtic they're the team for . . :
Seliing Mc Geady – out of Mogga's hands. He wants a go now at the EPL , Everton will offer £ 8mill ( £ 5 m now, and £ m perf related )
Selling Boruc – Cannot stay . Firesale price really of £ 3 m , prob to Germany or Championship side
Buying Steven Fletcher – Done deal at £ 3m
Buying Marc Fontaine – Doner deal at £ 2m
Borrowing Quality – Fabio will come from Man U on season loan
Saying goodbye to Balde, Hartley, JVH, Nakamura, Robson, Wilson , Caddis, Donati, Mizuno, Brown ( M ) , Naylor,
  Notts county have 5 pre–contract agreements in place which look set to go through on the 29th june pending the takeover goes through this is from the agent of 1 of the players. Billy clarke, sergio torres,andrew mangan,lee beevers and ben davies will all sign 2 year deals with the
Option of a third depending on apperances.
  United Signing Rumours:
– Iker Casillas (Real Madrid)
– Ashley Young (Aston Villa)
– Douglas Costa (Gremio)
– Fernando Torres (Liverpool)
– Sergio Aguero (Athletico Madrid)
– Samuel Eto'o (Barcalona)
– David Silva (Valencia)
– Arjen Robben (Real Madrid)
– Antonio Valencia (Wigan)
– Frank Ribery (Bayern Munchen)
– Karim Benzema (Lyon)

Lets talk about this list now:
– Iker Casillas: Could happen. United have £100+ million to spend and need a keeper with experience for when Van Der Sar decides to retire.

– Ashley Young: More than possible. Ashley Young should be looking at signing for a bigger club, he is a great player and would be a perfect replacement for Ronaldo.

– Douglas Costa: Young talent, expected to join United this summer.

– Fernando Torres: As much as I would love to see him at Old Trafford it's not going to happen. SAF put a cheeky bid in for him just to see if he could tempt Liverpool to sell him and it didn't work. . Torres is worth alot more than £40 million considering Ronaldo went for £80 million.

– Sergio Aguero: Been linked with United/Liverpool/Chelsea since the transfer window opened. Great player in my eyes and would be a good replacement for Tevez.

– Samuel Eto'o: He has put off United by demanding £1 million a month in wages which is a ridiculous amount of money to ask for from any club.

– David Silva: With Rooney moving back to the center forward position next season and Ryan Giggs looking older as every game goes past I think Silva would be a great signing to play on the left wing.

– Arjen Robben: His performance in the Euro 2008 tournament was outstanding. Rumours have it that Real Madrid are having a clear out of all the dutch players and are asking £9 million for Robben. . That's a steal in my opinion.

– Antonio Valencia: Pretty much a done deal with a 2/1 bet that he will be at United when the next season starts.

– Frank Ribery: Unless SAF can do anything to make Bayern Munich drop the price tag to around £40–£45 million. . He will definately not be joining United. The other reason being that Zinedine Zidane is trying to get him at Real Madrid.

– Karim Benzema: Lyon say they are certain that he will join United this summer for a fee of around £25–£30 million which is great as he can score goals. . This is what we need now Ronaldo/Tevez have gone
  To the person who said

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.

Kevin Thomson is going nowhere,especially not to Celtic for a manager he doesn't get on with,plus he will be the new Captain and lift the SPL trophy!!!. Secondly Steven Davis is going nowhere,Walter has made him one of the untouchables and Davis stated to the press there is no way he wants to leave the team he supports. Boyd would only go for silly money or if a suitable replacement was signed. McGregor will not be the No 1. He is just as likely to go as Ferguson. McGregor for 3.5 mill and Ferguson for 1 mill. The only definate signings so far will be Chris Brunt from WBA for 3 mill and Heiridasson Free from Pompey.

'When You Walk Through A Storm. . . . You Get Wet'!
  Anyone who says Robbie Keane or Jermain Defoe have to go are absolute stupid. He wouldn't have spent £30 Million on both of them in the January anyway. Tottenham are not going to sign Ashley Young as he feels he is playing his best footie at Villa and wants to go to the World Cup 2010 in form. Harry hasn't got much to spend as he blew his summer budget in January so expect not many players to arrive.

Wondering if anyone has more information on who this may be?
  United News

For me, i hope United sign Benzema, but i believe with Eto'o likely to leave Barca, Benzema will move to the Camp Nou.

Leaving United to move for Valencia & Huntelaar. Douglas Costa to join in January.
  "Gibson to Wolves 4.5m" .

I know that you Utd fans are still in shock after pretty boy left you but why would Wolves pay 4.5million for a player that was pant when on loan at Wolves and was sent back. Just because he wore a red shirt in the odd cup game doesn't make him A) Good or B) worth millions.
  Karim Benzema (ST) – 30m – Olimpique Lyonnais
Sergio "Kun" Aguero (FW) – 35m – Athletico Madrid
Luis Antonia Valencia (RM) – 16m – Wigan
David Silva (LM) – 22m – Valencia CF
Ashely Young (LM) – 25m – Aston Villa
Dodo (CB) – 6m – Corinthians
Serigo Asenjo (GK) – 8.25m – Valladolid

There is a 50/50 chance Anderson is set to join Preston, not Bristol City. He obviously knows Alan Irvine. If this deal goes ahead, we will target Brian Stock from Doncaster. Charlie Adam is set to sign after a £600k fee has been agreed. Simon Cox is in talks over a £1m move. Also, Tenerife striker Nino is a likely buy for over a million. Craig Cathcart has been touted as a possible defensive buy and Mark Hudson. Wes Hoolahan is thought to have already signed.
  Sheffield Wednesday are trying to convince Michael Owen to Join them if he fails to land a deal at a premiership club. Only 3 teams in premiership the are intrested in landing the player. Stevo
  Benitez has realised he will have to sacrifice 1 of Mascherano or Alonso, as both unsettled–more Mascherano as his family life highly affected by living in England. 2 offers have been made to Liverpool, 1 from Real Madrid for £38m for Mascherano and Arbeloa, and Barcelona have offered 3 choices–£35m, £30m+Caceres,£20m+Bojan. Rafa wants £30m+Bojan or £45m for the player. Such funds will allow for the completion of deals for Glen Johnson and one of David Silva or David Villa. Lorik Cana will come in to replace Mascherano, whilst Lucas and Jay Spearing will play more prominent roles
