Football Rumours Archive March 23 2007


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Here r some Marsielle rumours 4 the guy wo asked: (These are just rumours) . Ins. Cisse could come after a gr8 loan spell, this could be from £7 - 10 million. Tevez might com 4 £10 million but he will probably go to Man United. Instead, we could go for Aliadiere, Cesar Delgado, Sinama Pongolle, Park Chu Young or Ikechuwu Uche. In defense, Sorin and F. Meira are being looked at, as are Cesar Alaves and Noe Pamarot. In midfield, Marseille are tracking Kerlon ( loan deal for a bigger club), Castelen, Luque, or even Riquelme, but he is highly unlikely to join. Outs. , Ribery may be tempted by Arsenal or Real, but he'd go for nothing less than £18 million. Nasri will stay though. If Carraso leaves, expect Mexican keeper Ochoa to join for £5 million, but Sevilla, Santos, Rangers, Lazio and Schalke are all interested.


There will not be excessive amount of activity in the transfer window for Liverpool. However, a sizeable amount will be spent on promising young players.

From what I hear, a young striker has just signed a professional contract in Germany for one of the smaller clubs; Bielfield is it?. I can't remember his name, but he already has nine goals in three starts and Liverpool are set to offer a tribunal amount to land him. Expect this young lad to make an impact.


Newcastle will overhaul their defense, and they will raid West Ham if they are relegated. They will move for Dean Ashton, Anton Ferdinand, Matthew Upson and Lucas Neill. They will also go for Leighton Baines, Wayne Bridge, Sylvain Distin and Jonathan Woodgate. If Onyewu impresses they will keep him. Going out will be Bramble, Moore, Babayaro, Bernard and Luque.


Confirm Rumours

Arsenal will sign teenage French striker Gilles Sunu in July after coming to an agreement with his club Chateauroux.

Sunu, the 16-year-old son of former Togo international, Manu Sunu, will cost between £700,000 and £1m and will sign a four-year deal next month when Chateauroux president Michel Denisot meets his Arsenal counterpart David Dein.

Everton are set to sign Lucas Neil from West Ham as they will be relagated also the new left full back will be Wigans leighton baines Everton are also ready to move for Manuel fernandes who is settled on Merseyside the fee could be anything from 5m to 12m also Everton want a partner for AJ David Nugent is favourite to be signed by the blues but Everton are also keeping tabs on the Craig Bellamy situation also dutchman Danny koevermans of az has been mentioned other names linked with Everton in different positions are Readings Sidwell and Hunt Lyons kallstorm the return of Marco materazzi! barton Reo Coker graveson. Everton will have a clear out if they reach the Uefa cup or not alans stubbs and Lee Carsley should be offered a new 1 year deals their is a 50-50 chance of Carsley staying because his family lives in Birmingham so their is a possiblity that cars could move home with both Birmingham and Wolves interested Richard wright will leave and will sign for Southampton or West Brom sandro pistone will return to Italy Gary Naysmith and James Mcfadden will join Walter Smith at Rangers and plus let down James Beattie has a number of clubs interested finally Andy van der meyde will sign for Juventus (no clue why?)

Villa rumours

to the Blackburn fan who said Bellamy will sign for them in the summer GET REAL its a done deal he off to Aston Villa and by the way Ashley young might have cost a lot but Blackburn will never spend that on any one. FACT

and Celtic fans Sidwells going to Aston Villa along with Bellamy 100% true.

Spurs really want Darren Bent and then will sell Defoe to Newcastle for 9. 5milon

Luke Young will not join Blackburn as he's see's them as a small club and will look to join Newcastle, Villa or Everton if Charlton go down.

Birmingham will sign these if they go up

Z. kight

m. Bent

r. green

l. riggwell

and a big bid for Alan smith

It appears that Liverpool have struck two amazing deals for the Summer - Sporting's winger Nani is reported to be on the verge of a 22 million Euro move and Liverpool also have a verbal agreement to sign Ajax's Dutch striker Klass Jan-Huntelaar for £14. 7m.

I come on here hoping to read real rumours, but every day I'm faced with a number of ones that are obviously totally made up - don't do that, it gives me a headache!

Uuhmmm, now onto the REAL ones:

Newcastle will have a small clear out this summer. Following getting booted out of the UEFA cup, and it looking increasingly unlikely that the club won't have European football next year, the club will now decide against renewing the contracts of Bramble and Moore, they will both leave on a free. Bramble will stay in the Premiership, but with a bottom half club. I've heard rumours of interest from Man City, should Distin leave (very likely), and I imagine the 3 promoted clubs will have some interest too. I don't know where Moore is going, but I do know he is leaving. Sibierskis deal will, however, be extended.

Glenn Roeder is keen on players having shorter deals - bar the biggest names at the club - as he feels that they perform better with the pressure of playing for a contract.

Emre may leave. I had said previously that he would definitely leave if he was found guilty of racism, but now that this is not the case, this is more 60/ 40. Nicky Butt is also likely to leave, although being in good form, with a younger replacement brought into the club - possibly Barton. Pattinson and O'Brien will be offloaded along with any other homegrown talent that the club believes won't make the grade. Huntington will extend his current deal within the next few days - fact.

In the SPL, I've heard that Gordon will definitely leave, likely going to one of the old firm, or an English club, but he doesn't want to go abroad. Berra is also raising some interest from a few clubs, but I've heard he may stay at Tynecastle and become the new captain. As usual many foreign players will be brought in to the club, likely with ties to FC Kaunas.

Rangers will difinitely sign Wright (of Everton), Naismith, Gow, and Jones of Hibs. Celtic will offload Jarosik. These are all I know.

- Derka

Everton will buy Anton Ferdinand, Nigel Reo-Coker, Jloyd Samual, Fernandes and Nuggent. There going to try anmd reinforce there squad so they can compete in the highest level, Moyes wants strength in depth and some quality players that can cope with European football. Line up next season:


Neville (c)



Samual/ valente









Alexis - £4m

Raul Garcia - £10m

Sneijder - £8m (Maybe Barca though)

Huntelaar - £11m



Jorge Lopez






Canizarez, Butelle, Mora


Miguel, C. Torres, Alexis, Navarro, R. Albiol, Marchena, Moretti, Del Horno


Joaquin, D. Silva, Sneijder, Albelda, R. Garcia, Baraja, H. Viana, J. Gavilan, Vicente


Morientes, D. Villa, Huntelaar, Angulo, Niguez

Expect local lad, Kevin Blackwell to be announced as manager of Luton Town football club prior to the away fixture to Burnley on 31st March although there is a chance that he will be named manager following this game and instead prior to the home game against Southampton. If Blackwell can "miraculously" steer Luton clear of relegation this season, expect him to bring in Eddie Lewis and Richard Cresswell from Leeds United as well as bring ex-Town skipper Kevin Nicholls back.


Spanish rumours:

Real Madrid will get new coach in the summer (Bernn Schuster from Getafe) . They will sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Man Utd., Kaka from Milan, Robben from Chelsea, Alves from Sevilla and Metzelder from Dortmund. They will sell:Emerson, Cicinho, R. Carlos, Helguera and Salgado.

They will play 4-2-3-1 formation:


LB. Marcelo


CB:Cannavaro or Metzelder





AMR:C. Ronaldo


ST: van Nistelrooy

SUB:Lopez, Metzelder/ Cannavaro, Robinho, Torres, Raul, Guti, Hugain, and young players from Castilla


Charlton will try to buy young 19 years old superkind from Slovenia Matic Volk. He plays in defense and he is great prospect for the future.

Belive me!

Real Madrid rumours

Real Madrid will appoint Rafael benitez as coach to replace Fabio capello. Cannavaro, Roberto carlos, salgado, Reyes, Emerson and Cassano will all leave. real will buy CBs Alexis, Metzelder and Andrade, to replace Cannavaro (going to napoli/ AC Milan) and helguera (may either warm the bench or move) . there is no need for Dani Alves as we have sergio Ramos, cicinho and Torres all capable of playing there, while Marcelo will replace Roberto carlos as real's long term left back with the Brazilian moving to fenerbahce. real will also purchase a right-winger, possible tempting Man Utd with 60 million pounds for Ronaldo. if this fails other options include Navas of Sevilla or Ribery of marseille. also, if and only if van nistelrooy leaves Adriano will come in a swap deal for Cassano, but remember this will only happen if he is to replace rvn. finally, real will bring back soldado who is having a great season on loan at osasuna, and Robinho will be staying.

07/ 08 team:


Sergio Ramos


Metzelder/ Andrade


C. Ronaldo/ Navas




Soldado/ Higuain

Van Nistelrooy/ Adriano

Dietmar Hamman could sign for Portsmouth in the summer despite interest from Bolton and Bayer Leverkusen.


Alexis has joined Valencia real will raid Sevilla for Alves and Navas.

Everton FC are currently watching the following players:

Chris Brunt Shef wed

A left sided midfielder who has impressed several Premiership clubs by scoring 11 times this season.

Leon Barnett Luton

Moyes is intrested in the player because he belives that he could provide good competion for the defenders also the players ability to play at various positions such as left-back, right-back, center-half, centre-midfield appeal to moyes

To the guy who said Celtic will sign Stephen Carr you are off your rocker. Celtic will only sign one right back in the summer (Steven whitaker) . Craig Bellamy will come for £6-7mill. Gravesen and Beattie will leave (thank god) along with balde, telfer, Miller and Zurwski. Lennon will sign a new contract (WHY) and Celtic will buy Freddy Adu (world class) and Craig Gordon (should boruc leave) .

Rangers Transfer Activity

Just to clear a few things up the following deals are currently in the pipeline at Ibrox and are genuine (not wishfull thinking and so completely unbelievable that they are laughable), unlike some rumours that have been posted by deluded Celtic fans:-

Kirk Broadfoot - done deal (nominal fee)

Alan Gow - done deal (bosman)

Scott Brown - £3m done deal agreed in January

Andy Webster - £800,000

Davie Weir - possible new 1 year deal

Smith also looking at Steven Whittaker for the problem right back position but Hibs may be unwilling to sell him to Gers for fear of a fan backlash after flogging Thomson and Brown to the Ibrox club.

The Gers boss is also tracking James McFadden to play up front alongside Kris Boyd but I'm lead to believe Peter Lovenkrands could be returning from Schalke in a swap deal with Thomas Buffel after impressing in the Bundesliga. Smith believes he provides an 'out' ball with his pace that Rangers currently lack and was impressed with his partnership with Boyd when they linked up near the end of last season.

Players leaving will be:-

Klos - retire

Prso - retire

Buffel - possible swap with Lovenkrands

Rae - Aberdeen or Championship club

N'Diaye - free transfer

Ponroy - free transfer

Sionko - £400,000 PSG


Birmingham City are on the lookout for a top class striker to spearhead their attack next season whichever division they're playing in. Chances are that Brum will be in the Premiership next term, but they will be without young Danish forward Nicklas Bendtner who is returning to Arsenal and veteran Andy Cole is only at the club on a short term loan for the current campaign. Robbie Fowler is a shock target and would be available as his deal with Liverpool expires in the summer. I also hear that Rangers prolific Scotland international Kris Boyd could be an idea, but he would demand in excess of £5m.

I know a couple of Agents that work for natinal companies there where four top Premiership scouts all sat together at Ashton Gate last night for the reserve game Bristol City v Exeter they told me they where there looking a two players James Wilson the tall centre back and Tristan Plummer the exciting striker, plummer was not in the squad the clubs where Man City, Spurs, LFC and Everton Wilson has been linked with Everton and Spurs in the past plmmer has recently been linked with a move to AFC, the word around Ashton Gate is they are looking to sell of some of there talented youngsters to fund transfers if they go up to the Championship and to fund the new training ground

Arsenal Bulletin,

Adebayor 2 sign 4 Valencia then see a possable move 4 NUFC Michael Owen 2 AFC .

There has been talks that David Villa in leaving towards Mardird for €12million. Not happy there.

But these are just rumors.

Giovanni Dos Santos could be involved in a swap deal for Xabi Alonso with Barcelona chasing the Liverpool midfielder and lifelong fan.

Barca are preparing a £10 million + Dos Santos offer for the Liverpool midfielder. Benitez may be willing to accept as he is on the trail of hot shot Dos Santos and has cover in the form of Sissoko and Mascherano.


I am an aussie girl living in Germany and I bumped into Craig Moore on saturday night. I didn't know but he is apparently here for rehab on his injured leg. After chatting for a while he told me that he was planning on leaving England at teh end of the season and is looking to join up with A-League side Queensland Roar.

The reason Rafa is insisting on meeting the owner’s is because he has set up a deal with Valencia for David Villa. The deal is thought is thought to be around 15 – 20 mil plus Alonso. Valencia are looking for a world class midfielder to replace the ageing Baraja and feel that Alonso is the player they need. Rafa, on the other hand, wants the money to be made available and finalize the transfer before other clubs get in and put a higher bid.

- AB-

Berbatov and Aaron Lennon are staying at Spurs. Sorry Liverpool/ Man United fans. The board will announce a brand new 60k seat stadium. Baines for £6 Million, MGP or Downing for about £8-12 Million will be signed. Mido will be replaced by Nani. Defoe and Keane will also stay, why would Spurs break up a free flowing, goal scoring attack? However, Spurs will spring a huge surprise by signing Woodgate for £6 Million. COYS
