Football Rumours Archive March 24 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Everyone who seems to think SAF is gunna sell Rooney is v.v deluded. Rooney is loved by fans and is held in v.high regard by SAF, they have not 'fallen out' they are both just so competetive and were very annoyed with the Liverpool result.

Foster will get more and more games and will become no.1 ready for VDS 2 retire end of nxt season.
Kuszack 2b loaaned out to Zenit and will return for 2011 season as no.2 to Foster.

We will not sign a RB, despite speculation on Ramos Lahm etc, SAF will not spend 20mil + on a position were we have Nev Rafael Oshea Brown alreaady. If any1 saw TheSn last week SAF named Rafael is his all time United Dream Team, that is how high he rates him. Nev will play sum games nxt season and Rafael will play most the time and by 2011 season he will be no.1 choice and Nev will retire.
Kyriakos Papadopoulos will be signed from Olympiakos (1 for the future)

Nani 2 go on loan most likely 2 Everton.
Ronaldo WILL stay, if he does leave United it will most likely be after the 2010 WorldCup.
Rodgrigo & Gibson loaned out. Rodrigo maybe 2 a SPL team. Gibson 2 Wolves.
Only 1 major signing here, a left winger who colud be one of several targets, Ángel Di María, Alexis Sánchez, Valencia r possiblity . Also a bid made 4 Hernanes and poss sum youngsters, but SAF is v.happy with his current depth in midfield.

Maucho– sold
Tevez will only be signed if we fail 2 land Benzema or Aguero.
Possible bids for Nilmar or Walter.
Adem Lajic who signed in Jan will get the odd game in the carling cup etc.
  The guy that wrote: "Walter has walked away from the rangers job and craig levein will be the new manager come monday morning" – It's now Monday lunchtime and he's still there! For your information, when Smith does step down, McCoist WILL take over as he is getting shown the ropes just now. This is common knowledge and Rangers cannot afford to fire Smith or sign a new manager as the compensation required to Smith or another club is not within Rangers budget – SIMPLE AS THAT. Also Rangers will avoid getting caught up in the managerial merry–go–round again after the debacle with Le Guen. Likewise Gattuso, Hutton, Cuellar, Van Bronckhorst, Lovenkrands, Amoruso, Albertz, Prytz, Gascoigne, Huistra, the late Bill Struth etc will NOT resign for Rangers – Rangers are TRYING TO SELL PLAYERS, not accumulate even more wages, particuarly from players who now earn far more than Rangers can afford. As for the mob across town – Roy Keane won't be your new manager, he couldn't cope at Sunderland, so why would he want to return to the Glasgow goldfish bowl?? CMON OLD FIRM FANS – LET'S STOP MAKING STUFF UP – I DEMAND ONLY THE TRUTH.

but hopefully this will not happen lol
  Phil bolland of cambridge united looks set to sign for shrewsbury as is only a non contract player at the moment
  I'm a primary school teacher in Hastings and for those of you who know this is where Gareth Barry is from. His brother is a fireman and has just been doing football coaching with our Year5 kids. He tells me that there is no way on earth Barry will be signing for Liverpool this summer. He felt messed about and annoyed that he was left out to critism by both Liverpool and Villa. However, he is desperate for Champions League football to proove himself on a bigger scale. Expect a move to Arsenal or Chelsea this summer, but no way Man utd. This is not a runour, but the words of HIS relation!!
  Wayne Rooney to Real Madrid. £35 million. Perez has rooney on he`s wishlist of targets if he wins the presidential elections he will sign Wayne rooney. Expect Sergio Ramos to join Man utd as part of the rooney deal. Ronaldo will stay at united for 2 more seasons.
  Expect a big clear out at the Britannia Stadium regardless of which division Stoke are in next season. Players on the way out are:

Abdoulaye Faye
  Italian teams are likely to spend big this summer with the following proposed transfers:

Drogba (AC Milan £21 Mil)
Pazzini (AC Milan £13 Mil)
Gago (Inter Milan £12 Mil)
Barzagli (Inter Milan £8 Mil)
Cassano (Inter Milan £12 Mil)
Henry (Juventus £11 Mil)
Rosina (Juventus £16 Mil)
Martins (Roma £12 Mil)
Pandev (Roma £13 Mil)
Marcelis (Fiorentina £7 Mil)
RVN (Fiorentina £3.5 Mil)

Of course this means that players will be leaving Italy too:
Ibrahimovic (R.Madrid £32 Mil)
Seedorf (Ajax £1.9 Mil)
Chiellini (Barcelona £21 Mil)
Gattuso (Sevilla £4 Mil)
Quaresma (Chelsea £11 Mil)
Mutu (Lyon £8 Mil)
Del Piero (Valencia £3 Mil)
Juan (B. Munich £12 Mil)
Chivu (Man City £16 Mil)

Will be a great summer if all this happens
  THE BOSS???? HAHAHAHA Do u manage a grocery store or a mcdonalds? You think Ronaldo is worth only 50 mil? He's a better player and younger than Kaka and he's been valued at close to 100mil. Furthermore, why on earth would United want Sergio Ramos? They already have Rafael, with Neville, Brown and Oshea all as backups. Ramos has been shown to be a horrid defender and quite untrustworthy going forward as his crosses end up in the 25th row half the time.

Actual Possibilities for Utd Transfers:

Ribery (25–20mil)
Benzema, although most likely not moving til next summer (35–40mil)
Villa, not likely but he will be sold so United will monitor the situation (40–50 mil)
Aguero (30–35 mil)
Sanchez (13–20mil)
Rossi (buyback clause of 17 mil)
And a few youngsters for the future, both British and South American talents, and perhaps a couple of these up and coming french starlets.
  I've been informed by ex Football agent Robert DeGaille of a few bids that are being lined up for a few different players by different clubs in the summer, some bids have been received but nothing can be made official until the summer. He is genuinely a very reliable source and broke the news to about the Kaka Manchester City Deal late December, also he was informed very early on about Hlebs departure to Barcelona in the summer.

A few bids that have been made are as follows:
Manchester united Have Made Bids For– Liedson and Glen Johnson (6 million, & 5 Million + Campbell Loan + Nani Loan), they have also enquired about the permanent signing of Carlos Tevez and have offered 20 million aswell as an extra 10 million on the condition of 3(goals) to every 5(games played).

Manchester City have been busy with player enquiries they have made a 40 million pound offer for Mr. Chelsea himself John Terry with that deal already being rejected. Samuel Eto'o is another target for the Blue half of Manchester with a 33 million pound bid as well as a 4 million pound add on depending on mid season player review, also Barcelona will be give 17% of any sell on value received my Manchester City FC. as you expect and most probably guessed Manchester City are again in talks with AC Milan over a move for 3 top players who are believe to be Kaka,Ronaldinho and Pato with a combined package fee of 206 million pounds.

Chelsea FC have made bids for the services of Mikel Arteta of 14 million pounds and Newcastle United's Centre Back and Centre forward Fabricio Collocini and Michael Owen. Many Rumours of a Clear out have been circulated around the country the current truth is no player is seeking a move away from Stamford bridge but if the right price comes in then expect a few quality stars to leave.

Arsenal FC haven't enquired about any major players but are reported to be scouting the trench 2nd division clubs and also the Brazilian street scene however they have made bids for 3 players to date, Tom Sears of 3 million, Tim Cahill of 8 million and Obafemi Martins of 13.8 million pounds.

Liverpool FC have made 4 bids for big name players but all have been reported to be rejected, David Villa 21 Million Pounds due to Valencia having recieved an offer of 37.1 million from an unnamed Spanish giant. the other 3 offers have been for Sergio 'kun' Aguero but was again rejected as the club want atleast 40 million for the Argentine star where as Liverpool were only prepared to part with 21 million and Jermaine Pennant, Renato Augusto was offered a deal to join the Merseyside club but rejected as he believes he isn't ready to play for a high expectation club and last but not least was a suprise to me Klaas Jan Huntelaar but again was rejected because the fee offered wasnt in the region Madrid wanted and also they believe that the young Dutch wizz hasnt had a chance to gel with the Spanish giants style of play.

thats all for now. many thanks for reading and i'll be informing you of any new breakin news from around the country, remember you heard it here first.
  Rangers ins and outs this summer

management walter ally and kenny all leaving at the end of the season

craig levein will take over with stuart mccall as his assistant

players ins and outs


naismith out on loan for a season at a championship club
  Just been told something interesting by a journalist who works for a well known british tabloid newspaper. .
The reports of Rafa wanting a right–back, a right–winger and a striker are true.
Glen Johnson is the right–back target and seems very likely to come for around £9 million pounds.
Aaron Lennon was the right–wing target but with him signing a new deal that now looks unlikely and Benitez may swap to Bentley who has never really settled at Spurs and will be avaliable for less than what Spurs originally paid for him.
The really interesting bit is the striker, it won't be Diogo for £12 million, or Kerrison for £35 million or even Agureo for £25 million. The man Rafa wants is Tuncay of Middlesbrough! Apparently, even if Middlesbrough stay up, the Turkish international will be at Anfield next season to play behind Torres.
As they say. . watch this space!
  After Villa's poor display against Liverpool Rafa has dropped interest in Barry as he was in Mascherano and Alonso's shadow all match. Barry won't sign anyway if he would only be a bit part player. Instead Rafa will turn his attention to Michael Johnson of city (£8.5 million) who is younger, cheaper and more willing to play second fiddle to possibly the best midfield trio in the world (Gerrard, Alonso and Mascherano). Couple that with the signing of Lennon from Spurs (£17 million) and Liverpool will be ready to challenge again next season!
  Transfer News:
Fulham will end speculation of their star players by increasing theire contracts.
Players with new contracts will include Hangeland,Murphy,Etuhu,AJ and a few others.
If Hangeland does leave it will be for a minimum £7,000,000 with extra clauses. Like the bullard deal fulham will net £15m in the next 3 years.
IF hangeland leaves Mokoena or Kjaer will be signed or Hodgson may go to his previous clubs to seek an new Man Mountain, expect Titus Bramble To Be on the list for him too.
Fulham will sign Negredo also in the Summer.
Arsenal will be looking to sign Marek Hamsik for Fabregas's partner in the centre of the midfield. The slovakian has been dynamite all season and is now the hottest property in serie A.
Aaron Lennon will not be leaving SPurs until 2014 after signing a new contract.
Everton will make JO's loan permanent and expect 14 Manchester City Stars leaving the club with Elano the biggest name on the list, heading to Italian Giants Juventus.
Redknapp has also announced he is happy with his goalkeepers and Gomes is enjoying his time at Spurs as he feel he is more liked by the Spurs Fans.

  Bolton are planning to loot the relegated teams this summer, as long as they stay up. They've got their eyes on Carson and Robinson of West Brom, Huth and Bates of Boro and Turner and Geovani of Hull. Bolton will probably get 2 of the above and will struggle again next season. In fact they will continue to struggle while Gary Megson is in charge. Bring back Sam!
  Tuncay is attracting interest from some of Europes best clubs. With Boro on their way down the vultures are ready to swoop with Hamburg the front runners. Downing is another almost certain to leave and Spurs will do all they can to get him but rumours are Everton will push for his signature too. Johnson has to decide between the Championship or life in Liverpool reserves and Bates is wanted by fulham. Will be a busy summer with lots of wheeling and dealing!
  Some Liverpool predictions:
Loans Out:
Dossena (Lazio)
Leto (Olympiakos)
Pleissis (Birmingham)
Degen (Preston)

Voronin (£3.5 Mill)
Pennant (Free)
Benayoun (£8 Mil)
Lucas (£6 Mil)
Hyppia (Free)
Itandje (£500k)

Lennon (£17 Mil)
M.Johnson (£8 Mil)
Saunier (£2.5 Mil)

Rafa will start to put more faith in youth players next season.
  Celtic are to sign Adriano on loan for a season with a view to a permanent deal. .
