To the guy who said

"does nobody here realise dat Asenjo has gone/going to atletico madrid and man u will not be buying him and before u call me a liverpool fan i am a man u fan and i would love asenjo to join us but it isn't goin to happen so face it and stop submitting wishlists! u will confuse ppl who arent very smart! LOL"

asenjo is not definitavely going to athletico, they have only been intrested in him since a storming season keeping valladolid in la liga, manchester united however have been looking at the starlet for well over a year, although it may not be likely, asenjo is still a distinct possibility to join united – so don't rule it out

  To the Liverpool fan who said that they would sign Villa and Silva for £40m, are you mad??? Villa is worth that by himself with Silva being worth £20–30m!!
Anyway, that new Arab guy who has bought 60% of a club (seems to be Liverpool) will be making some dreams come true. If it is Liverpool and they win the title, it is only because of money (I'm a Villa fan), unlike United who have deserved it.
United to sign Benzema, Silva, Dodo, Costa and a young–ish keeper such as Akinfeev, Ustari or Asenjo. They will then sell Nanito Sporting CP (possible swap deal for Veloso or Moutinho), Berba to a mid table team (maybe) and Kuschak to an Eastern European team(spelling sorry).
Liverpool to sign Johnson and make a bid for Aguero/Villa, but I don't think the Villa one will happen but the Aguero one might. They will be selling a lot Mascherano to Barca (swap possible for Bojan), Dossena back to Italy and Arbeloa back to Spain.
Chelsea may make a bid for Villa, but also for Ibrahimovic. They won't sign Johnson because he said that he almost quit football because of his time at Chelsea, so why would he go back?
Arsenal to sign Vermaelen, but no–one else unless they sell Adebayor. If Adebyor goes then they will try to sign a striker similar to him or Henry.
We (Villa) only need to sign a couple of squd players or youth talent, because that was what let us down last season, a small squad so many of our player were jaded at the end of the season and we dropped off the top four.
  I work in Sheffield and am a very good friend with one of the chief scouts at Sheffield Wednesday. I shouldn't really be saying this but i felt i needed to tell my fellow wednesday fans.
I am told these rumours are 90% true and are on the verge of completion :

Ins: Victor Anichebe (loan)
Freddy sears will not be coming.
Rodrigo Possebon (loan)
Simon Cox (1 mil)
  To the guy who posted this:
"Everton rumours:

Yakubu is being sold to Spurs for 15 million plus Huddlestone apparently."

There is no way Spurs will pay that amount for Yakubu. He is worth about 12 million at most. Why on Earth would HR pay that sum when he can get RVN on the cheap or Kenwyn Jones while offloading Bent?

Anywayz, if Spurs don't get Young or the Real trio (which I think is most likely), expect bids for Bastos (which would effectively see Bale leave) and Ryan Babel (who is HR's safety for a left winger in case we don't get Robben or Young)
Also expect Reo–Coker (who I think is not very useful), RVN, and a bid for Jones and Yakubu (at most 8 million + Bent exchange).

  Celtic FC – Will people STOP assuming that with Mowbray as manager that bids will be launched for the whole of the Hibs and West Brom squads!! Mowbray will be advised as to what areas need addressing (Gordon Strachan will even be involved) and act accordingly. Goalkeepers – IF Boruc goes (bids of anywhere between £3–£6m are feasible) then Zaluska will be No1 and Scott Fox will be trusted as an able deputy. Right Back – no requirements (Hinkel/Wilson/Caddis) Centre Backs – 1 will come in – possibly Mattias Bjärsmyr of IFK Göteborg. Left Back – 1 will come in, possibly Paul Robinson of West Brom or Nikola Petkovic of Eintracht Frankfurt. Midfield – 1 will come in possibly George Boyd, Peterborough or Andy Driver, Hearts. Strikers – 2 will come in – probably Marc Antoine Fortune of Nancy and Steven Fletcher of Hibs, with possibly Ola Toivonen of PSV Eindhoven if one or other does not sign. Players allowed to leave on frees/fees will be Boruc, McManus,Balde, Naylor, Nakamura (gone), Hartley or Robson (not both), Donati, McGeady, Killen, Samaras, Hesselink and McDonald.
A host of fringe players will be allowed on loan to SPL/SL1/Championship to gain valuable experience.
  I am a valencia supporter and I have heard a interesting rumour circulating inside the club.
LFC have recently agreed the purchase of a senior player and two youth players from the club. The deal was agreed a few months ago.
That news is not surprising as this rumour has been said since the LFC club officals visited. BUT the real news is that LFC will be paying for the players from the considerable investment they are expecting from a SPANISH source. It was explained that the new investor will become part owner of the club with the current owners.
It is expected that a announcement of the sale of the players will be confirmed next month together with spaish investment.

Who has The Sheikh bought???

This is really question of the day. .The report says a big club, so lets start with the big boys. .Its very unlikely to be United or Chelsea. .To buy 60% of Arsenal is very hard, will take months to do, and Arsenal will not name him honorary chairman. .

So that leaves Liverpool. Its very likely he bought 50% from Hicks and 10% for Gillet, but then again its gonna be a lot of money. Dubai have been trying to buy Liverpool for almost 3 years now, and they have way more money than Ras–Al–Kheima.

So that means its probably one of the chasing pack. Villa, Everton, Spurs??? If I was a betting man, I'd say Spurs because of their real–estate portfolio.

Comment if you agree or disagree, this thing is driving me crazy.


The deal worth 80Million For Cristiano Ronaldo has not been completed as Manchester United have pulled out before completing the transfer, not heard of the reason why yet but is something in the reason because SAF can't get his replacement for him this season so it will happen next season!
Source from inside MUFC
  Seems to be a lot of scousers on this site with wish lists for players!! One even told us what shirts the players would be wearing! Who cares this is a football rumours site not gok wans show!!
On to a proper rumour– silva to Man Utd.
Kind regards, Daz.
  Sheikh Ahmed bin Saqr Al Qasimi has purchased a 60% share holding in major PL Team. .That team is Everton. Its blue bill all over. He will still own part of the club he loves.No one finds out in advance about our transfer buys (look at fella last year)and this is the same. Its got his style all over just watch this space. This is just an educated guess. we are the only team who could be called TOP who isn't owened by some billiare allready.Also Newcastle are not a PL team now so that discounts them.
  The following transfers are not rumours they are fact and will happen.
Jermaine Beckford will sign for Celtic and he will joined at paradise by Robert Snodgrass.
Andy Dorman is also on the list however celtic will not pay more than £1million for his services.
  AFC NEWS Wenger will buy 2 more players, 3 if Adebayor goes, (LINKED) CB– Bassong–NUFC––Sakho–PSG–one of the 2___CM– Filipe Melo– FIORINTINA– Inler– UDINESE– one of the 2___ ST if Adebayor goes– Chamack from the french champions– Huntelar– Real Madrid_______ and probaly will sign a few youngsters.

  Tevez is going home . . . home to Upton Park that is.

  Just got back from a business trip in spain and heard some news about liverpool.
Apparently a deal has been struck between the club and a spanish investment consortium. The investment is for roughly 200 million pounds for a percentage share of the club. The locals near seville said that this news has been floating around for the past 2–3 months.
Don't know too much about this consortium apart from they have strong media connections across spain & portugal.
Hope this helps!!

   Arsenal Transfers

Now Arsenal have signed Vermaelen for around £10m, now Van Persie will sign a new contract. This is because he is good friends with Vermaelen. The other transfers for Arsenal are as follows:

– Mahamadou Sakho (PSG) (£7m)

– 2 or 3 youngsters (£4m)


– Senderos (Fiorentina) (p/ex)
– Eboue (PSG, Atletico Madrid) (£8m)
– Adebayor (AC Milan, Manchester City) (£20m)
  Man utd targets to replace tevez (1 will sign)

karim benzema – (number 1 target, and i think fergie will convince him to come this summer instead of next)

sergio aguero – (may be a little pricey at 50m euros and could be a stumbling block, but is basically a younger faster better version of tevez
giuseppe rossi – (if the buy–back clause is true, then he could be available at decent price)

mario balotelli – ( fergie is used to working with players with big egos and fiery personalities, and with inter signing arnautovic, and his frosty relationship with mourinho, the door could be open for him to make a move)

man utd targets to replace ronaldo and giggs (2 of 5 will sign)

david silva – (i have a sneaky feeling this is a done deal and has been since last summer)

luis antonio valencia

alexis sanchez – (udinese rejected a 25m euro offer from another team, could this be because they don't want to sell? or is it because there is already a deal in place for us to buy him?)

douglas costa – (again i think this is a definite, he may remain at gremio for one more year)

ashley young – (maybe! if the barca rumours are true i think he will end up there!)

man utd targets to replace scholes (1 of 3 will sign)

luka modric
mikel arteta

dodo is already done deal, 1 or 2 other youngsters such as eden hazard and fabien delph may sign

further to post other day, the signing of Patrick Bigley from Athlone is to be confirmed this week.Have also heard from a good source within club that a full back will be joining this week, may fill in for naysmith or sadly for naughton. Don't know name, source was being very coy, would only say he is short with a bent nose!! don't know what to make of that.

  Everton will sign Another Midfielder from Standard Liege this time it will be Steven Defour for the same price as Fellani 15m Aston Villa are also interested but he would rather join up with Fellani

  Ok well, we do, do a lot of business with football clubs especially club's with–in the London are and as we are located with–in the city were are contacted regarding teams in the north of England, now i am able to post on here freely regarding certain rumours and clubs, i will start with the london club's and a certain southern club, this however i am unable to give out the respective club's name regarding a take–over that has hit the news, the club in hand play in blue and part of the ground is called a park? that is all i can say about that, now to some rumours that may have been floating around;
AFC, are looking at Marouane Chamakh & one Brazilian player (Gilberto helping with negotiations).
THFC; Spurs will be busy during the summer, Robbie Keane & not Roman Pavlyuchenko may well be the one to leave? Aaron Lennon will not be leaving, now to players arriving? the left side of the team is the topic of conversation? player's linked to the club are? Joe Cole, A.Robben, W.Sneijder, A.Young & S.Downing? now we are to understand that it will be one of the forementioned that joins the club and we believe it to be A.Young? as for the forward situation? player's will be leaving (x2) expect one from R.V.N or J.K.Huntelaar? to arrive, although we believe it may be both? other player's that should be arriving are Etiene Capoue & Moussa Sissoko (20 & 19 resp) both French under 21 player's with very big future's. now to the north, Liverpool will not capture D.Villa, D.Silva nor A.Young. but will how ever been productive but not as productive as they would like? as for man utd benzema is saf choice of player's.

  LFC have a new owner, unfortunately they are still stuck with one of the current ones. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saqr al–Qassimi, a member of a ruling family in the United Arab Emirates, has purschased a controlling stake in the club. He has bought out Hicks and purschased part of Gillett' holding. It is this deal that saw Mr Moores resigning from the board as the new owners insisted upon it within the deal. A major injection of capital will be made to the club, reducing debts, providing transfer funds and allowing work to begin/progress on the new stadium. Gillett has had to committ to investing a certain amount of capital in to the club, hence his sale of the his Canadian hockey team. He's in this for the long haul as he wants to reap the benefits from the new stadium and huge commercial potential of the club. The club are not going to be run like Man City, throwing money around like its going out of fashion, but it will mean we can compete in the transfer market in the short term and should secure the development of the stadium.
  Barnsley will sign el zhar on loan and not hammil, as thought. Rickie lambert is also close to joining.
  Big leister news one of our previous great champioship players will be returning. Barnsleys IAN HUME will return to football but with the mighty foxes. Also our promising youngster JONATHON BARBER will go out on loan to chesterfield.

  To the Liverpool fan having a go at Arsenal fans about Wenger. . shut up! All TRUE Arsenal fans are right behind Wenger and in what he is doing at the club. Going from George Graham and Bruce Rioch to the Wenger era, we are truly blessed! As for Liverpool fans being the best in the world. .err, no. You are some of the most fickle supporters I have ever met!

As for rumours, Melo and Chamakh in – Toure and Gallas to stay – Senderos will hopefully stay, he is a very strong asset but is young and learning. He may be used as a make weight though.

Hopefully Eboue will be sold, or contract some illness that means he can't make an appearance in our shirt ever again. Adebayor will have to go after recent comments about the fans. Destination unkown. He has also fallen out with the Togo manager and been sent home from the squad. Not exactly putting himself in the shop window.

In Arsene We Trust
  Firstly before rangers buy any players they have to offload a few first, most people are already expecting ferguson to go, on top of this should be:
Charlie Adam
Stevie Smith
Lee McCulloch
Demarcus Beasley
and 1 or 2 younger players to be released.
McGregor may also venture south but only if smith can secure the signing of Craig Gordon.
So with these players coming and going smith should have a warchest of around 6 mil.

Kevin Davies from bolton to replace fergie, he will be 2 mil (max)

Tonel or Stranzl to team up with Bougherra at the back again around the 2 mil mark (max)

and a winger, possibly Andrew Driver from Hearts or the return of the great dane Peter Lovenkrands, both possibillities.

We may also see the return of Alan Hutton to Rangers, odds are poor but who knoes.

Expect a few loan deals this summer also to fill the squad.

Also is any celtic fans wondring why mowbary has only been given a one year deal, this has failure written all over it. 2 in a row.
