Football Rumours Archive April 24 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

To the arsenal fan who said AW has contacted WEST HAM over the availability of CARLOS TEVEZ! What planet have you been living on! Tevez left west ham 'PERMANENTLY'2 years ago so we therfore have no say on where tevez goes, also do you honestly think that we would allow tevez to sign for you if he was still our player? MSI own tevez's rights so any transfer dealings need to be done with THEM, NOT Man Utd NOT WHU or anybody else! I honestly don't feel that Tevez will leave man utd at the end of the season and he won't cost £30 million in fact £20 mil which was part of the original deal that took him on LOAN to Utd in the first place! and if Tevez were to leave he will go spain or italy! finally will people stop saying all these big names will be joining any premier league team, infact expect many to leave the prem!
1. Not many have the money to spend at the moment
2. after Mr Darling's budget yesterday, why would Silva, Villa or Ribery want to come to England if half their salaries are going to be taken away? expect clubs to be focusing on bringing through younger talent until the income tax system is changed!
  First of all i must agree with the person who 'mentioned' lol, carlos tevez and his contract at man utd. He is only on loan so plz ppl do remember this when making up romours about him!!!

right here we go, i have heared on the grapevine about a few possiable moves around england this coming window.
First is SILVA to MAN UTD, a strange one i must admit but this one is picking up steam as the window gets closer, i don't know for sure if its going to happen and i not going to make up prices as i dnt no but what me and most ppl who take a keen intrest in football is the region of the prices, i would say around £20–£30m would get him.
second is AGUERO to a top 4 prem side this year, who i dnt know but i think we can rule out liverpool, WAIT! all u scousers out there that are ready to shot me down because they say they have 'inside' info lol let me explain, liverpool have torres who im sure you will agree plays best in the lone striker role, and that is also rafa's preferred formation i.e 4–4–1–1, and yes i no agureo can play there but so can stevie g and is very bloody gd at may i add, so why would rafa take up the best part of his transfer kitty to get him? I do belive alonso is off, it is known that he was hurt by rafa's willingness to sell him last summer to get barry, so im hearing the 2nd longest tranfer saga will see BARRY join liverpool, region of £8–£12m because hes going to b in his last year by then.
and last is the longest transfer saga!!! RONALDO to REAL, yes its going to happen as fergie see's this summer as the window he will get most for him to buy replacements, which also might mean cash plus a player/s. that's all i really have at the moment, feel free to comment on wot u think :)

  Plymouth argyle to sign rivaldo and (fat)ronaldo in the summer! fact! the new japanese owners want to bring in experienced brazalian flair!
  AC Milan player (no 10) in La Manga.
if sam allardyce manages to cles blackburn rovers from relegation he will have a massive clear out starting with santa cruz who will leave for nothing less than 18mil to liverpool,spurs or man city he will be replaced with kevin kurayni and peter crouch, he will also offload paul robinson to who ever wants him and he will replace him with kanemi of espanyol and he will also sign steve finnan as he is home sick. he will strenghen the defence as he feels they have helped concede to many goals this season and his possible targets are michael turner from hull ricardo gardner from his old club bolton and the permiment signiture of gael givet as andre ooijer is leaving on a free transfer. he will bolster the midfield as aaron mokeana will leave for a small fee along with andrews and reid and will replace them with aiden mcgeady johnathan greening sean davies and chris brunt.

  Response to 'the surface'. .you are correct in saying that David Silva will probably not be signing for Liverpool but Benitez has NOT ceased business with Valencia. Rafa said himself that relations with Valencia were VERY GOOD. It was, in fact, one individual at the club who leaked the deal and, reading between the lines, Valencia were none too pleased with him either. Rafa reaffirmed this to be the case and expect this deal to resurface (excuse the pun!) if he is not priced out by Man City/Chelsea/Utd. You can find Rafa's comments on various web sources but most notably on Guillem Balague's website.

  SAF will bring in one or two of these young centre backs

Danny Wilson 17 5M Rangers
Jose Rodolfo Pires Ribeiro Dodo 17 5M Corinthians
Victor Mongil 16 3M Real Valladolid
Kyriakos Papadopoulos 4M Olympiacos
  Just straightening a few things up here;
–Fabianski won't be sold he has some bad games and some good. therefore he will be loaned out to gain consistency (premier league team). Joe Hart will be signed.
–Gibbs will be loaned out to a premier league team armand trorae will return as Clichy's understudy.
–Senderos will go to a team in either germany or italy (not milan)
–Silvestre will be sold/ got rid of. Joleon Lescott will be his replacement.
–Denilson will be loaned out to a premier league team. Wenger will sign and expierenced replacement(1 of Barry, Senna)
–Bendtner will be sold and a replacement will be one of Tevez, Pato, Bojan
so. .
Hart (5)
Lescott (12)
Barry(8)/ Senna(wenger is only prepared to go as far as 5 million for the 32 year old)
Tevez (20)/ Pato (18)/ Bojan (15)/ Babel (8)
The prices above are what wenger is prepared to pay not the players market value.
Fabianski (loan)
Gibbs (loan)
Senderos (5)
Silvestre (200k)
Denilson (loan)
Bendtner (8)
  Straight from the horses mouth:
Hibs captain to move to Nottingham Forest in the summer.
  Rangers have no money,they have to offload to even to get SPL targets like , dorman , feeney , sandoza, so expect nothing major, usual suspects to be sold, ferguson, adam, hemdani, with no reserve league they will be looking for the youngters to prove themselfs in the SPL.

and on to celtic,

With a little more to spend than rangers one priority is a replacment for the japan bound nakamura not heard much on players , but reckon maloney is the man for that , with koki and mccourt edging closer for a start? who knows.
other targets are , few youngters from france, and Laszlo Bodnar and Marc Janko from red bull salzburg, ginger james from hamilton, fletcher,

wully bhoy
  Finally Rafa will start getting the players HE WANTS rather than compromising to Rick Parry. Rafa was angry at missing out on the likes of Alves, Vidic, Malouda, etc. Liverpool will renew their interest in Downing from Middlesborough and get in a RB and LB. Barry will not be a target this summer. A bit of unrest from Babel will see him sold on which is a shame he could have made it. I heard that RVP from Arsenal is a target, it will be interesting to see if Wenger will sell and the price I heard is a large amount. Rafa is keen to get Agger to sign on but unsure if he will so Agger could be used in the RVP deal.
  To the teapot who says stephen fletcher and chris hogg is joining motherwell. don't be silly. fletcher would cost at least £3m and hogg £1m. however beauzilin will be back at easter road.
  To the person who stated that Henry + 10 million for torres, are you crazy. Henry is 30, Torres is 25 which means Henry only has two seasons left at the top level maximum. Will Not Happen FACT. Babels time at anfield looks over . Rafa has lost patience with him and will look to Royston Drenthe or Arjen Robben to come in as replacement. I like many other liverpool fans think that joe cole would be a great signing for us, Dont think chelsea will want to sell arguably one of there best Players – Riles11 YNWA
  Here's a few transfer rumours for Aston Villa.

I have been told from a couple of people inside AV that Gareth Barry will leave for Liverpool as long as we can have Daniel Agger in part ex due to the retirement of Laurson.Daniel Sturridge AND Mickey Owen to sign both on free's !,The usual suspects of :Peter Crouch & Roque Santa Cruz will be monitored,Tom Huddleston is being looked at but Diego is the preferred choice to fill Barry's boots.Joleon Lescott could be a possibilty and the surprise from MON is that he's looking to sign a keeper and the one he's after is Joe Hart of Man City.

The bells are ringing for the claret & blue

  To tony t ur aving a laugh arent you Torres going to barca for £10m plus henry, get real lad. Henry coming for between £8–12m can play both as striker and as aml. Also Alonso to stay he does'nt want to leave when things are looking good. Sergio Aguerro might join in the summer depending on how much rafa has to spend, m owen if newcastle go down, sad to see them go if they do.
Remember these to come in:
S Aguerro
T Henry
M Owen
G barry
G Johnson or P Lahm
King kenny as new Director of football
  Arsenal have long being tracking PSG pair Mamadou Sahko and Chris Mavinga and are prepared to pay up to 12 million for the pair. Wenger is closely monitoring the situation of Miguel Veloso at Sporting after his fallout with coach Paulo Bento, he is looking 4 a move abroad and Wenger could b willing 2 pay up to 15 million for his signature. Wenger is also following Ignacio Camacho and Moussa Sissoko as backup.
  Rangers ins and outs in the summer i have inside information that the group that are going to buy murray out is david burnside and a few business men from london they will hire graeme souness as chairman of the club and will give alan curbishley phill brown or michael laudrup the job

  Ronaldiniho big move to man city for a stunning 38 mill if he desides to move his salary will be 120 thousand a game
  Adopted scouser, i am real scouser and have heard nothing of the sort, its thursday as i write this, and still (unsurprisingly) no news on a sale. Who were your "sources" fire them!! Hope it is sold, but doubt anyone on here will know before the gutter press mate!! Nice try though
Rafa has a 25 player shortlist ready for the summer and he will work along with his key advisor Mr.Kenny Dalglish to bring in some high profile players to the club. The number one target is Kun Aguero after the Silva deal was leaked to the press.Liverpool will not be dealing with Valencia this summer execpt maybe for Mata whos on he shortlist but its not likely he will end up at Anfield. To the Guy who said Lfc are intrested in a player form Italy you were right but its no Hamsik its Fiorintina striker Pazzini. He has been tracked all season and an enquiery was made. Liverpool are also thounght to be tracking a bosnian player who many think is Dzeko but Liverpool scouts went to see the player in France. Sampdoria Keeper Fiorllio is being tracked by th club also as Cavalieri Itange Hansen and Martin all set to be offloaded in the summer leaving only Austrilian/greek keeper Dean Bouzains who might be loaned out. Liverpool representatives in Madrid talking to Athletico officials about Aguero so i will keep you posted.
  BIG Man United News::

Sir Alex is trying to form a lethal (most probably the deadliest on earth) partnership of Wayne rooney Sergio Aguero and Karim Benzema at Man United. . .And SIr Alex has decided to sell Berbaflop and Nani while Tevez won't get a permanent deal and Ronaldo is off to Madrid. So there will be money. and SAF may also sign Alexis Sanchez or Di Maria.

So outs will be:
1. Ronaldo
2. Berbatov
3. Tevez
4. Nani

Ins will be:
1. Sergio Aguero
2. Karim Benzema
3. Alexis Sanchez / Angel Di Maria
4. Dodo –– done deal. .
I work for a large financial establishment, and the company has, on the request of the current Liverpool owners, been working on various ways to refinance the club, to release more funds – After months of trying and approaching several different banks, we have drawn a blank (no–one wants to take the risk) – So, the only option is to sell. the good news is, that there are three genuine offers on the table – All for similar amounts and all promising to fund the new stadium and release funds for transfers (in the region of £35m)– The Americans are reluctant to sell to DIC, as they have not been impressed with recent dealings, so it is potentially down to two, being a consortium from Kuwait plus a new bidder which is being fronted (but not solely funded) by none other than Richard Branson. He loves the idea of having his Virgin branding flashed all over the globe in an instant ! So, watch this space ! Fact – not rumour !

  Everton fc boss david moyes is planning a double move on parma for McDonald Mariga and Magnus troest.
  It is rumoured that Arsenal have made progress in their approach for the Udinese holding midfielder, Gokhan Inler. Apparently Udinese have a young 20–year old who they see as a natural replacement for Inler and are more willing to consider selling the Turkish–born Swiss international, Inler. Arsene Wenger is known to be a long–term admirer of Inler's technical and defensive skills and he did make a bid for the player last summer. Stewie
  Man City are looking to sign Liverpool's Dirk Kuyt in a 15mil deal. Liverpool will make a £25mil bid for Real Madrid's Gonzalo Higuain to replace Kuyt. Real Madrid will replace Higuain with Carlos Tevez.

Michael Johnson will make an £8mil move to Aston Villa to replace 8mil Liverpool bound Gareth Barry

Aston Villa, Arsenal, Everton and City are mulling over a £8mil bid for Manchester United's Owen Hargreaves.

Mark Hughes does NOT want Fabio Cannavaro at Eastlands. Instead, City are thinking of making a move for Everton DUO Joleon Lescott AND Phil Jagielka. The pair would cost City £28mil.
  To the Hibs rumour that said "Hibs News Major summer clearout– out will be Fletcher for 4million to highest bidder, jones for 1million somewhere in England, Yantorno released,chislom released, O'Brien for 250k crewe, Pinau loan expired, O'Neil released, Zemmama to UAE for 1million,Benji released, Keenen released.
