Football Rumours Archive November 24 2008


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Arsenal are desperate to bring in a striker. They will sell Bendtner.The targets are as follows, altohugh only 1 will be signed Mario Mandžukić of NK Dinamo, Diogo of Olympiakos, Edu of Hoffenheim, Dabid Williams of Brondby, Michael Owen of Newcastle, Gary Madine of Carlisle and Victor Moses of Crystal Palace
  Malcolm Shaffer – your comments about Wolves are rubbish. Where do parachute payments come into the equation when they finished at least 2 years ago? FYI, Michael Kightly cost 25k from Grays Athletic (yeah, we REALLY needed the para payments for him!), plus Big Chris cost around 400k and Sam Vokes cost around 250k. Anyway as far as rumours are concerned, seems we're trying to get Scott Sinclair on loan – would be a good signing.
  To the person who claims Chelsea can't afford a new stadium without taking out a sizeable loan. I think it fair to say that almost any team can get a new stadium if they get a multi million/billion pound company to pay a substantial amount towards it in return for naming the ground after them.It is true though, that Arsenal fans should be proud of their stadium, it is nice, if a little quiet. Oh yeah, and Chelsea's ground, being in West London, is one of THE most valuable pieces of land in the country, so somehow I think they would be able to afford a new stadium with the money the sale of that would bring in (think how many up–market apartments and pretentious coffee bars they could fit in), but then they probably don't want to move if it means selling out like Arsenal did.

  Tony Adams was seen at England U21 match. He was impressed by English centre back Richard Stearman and Czech keeper Jacob Divis. Aidan White of Leeds Utd is also a target alongside Toulouse youth Adam Smith.
  Arsenal are in for Fabian Delph, as we already know. However, they are also interested in Sunderland youngster Jordan Henderson. The final suprise target is Reuben Noble–Lazarus of Barnsley.
  Rangers are targeting 3 English Youngsters. The players in question are Kyle Naughton of Sheff Utd, for around £5m Mark Beevers of Sheff Wed for around the same fee, and finally Barnsley youngster Reuben Noble–Lazarus for around £1m
  England U21/Peterbrough keeper Joe Lewis is a shock target for Middlesbrough. Southgate sees him as a potential England no1 and a good replacement for Ross Turnbull. They are also competing with villa for Adam Lallana and with Arsenal for Leeds youngster Tom Elliot

  Hamilton Acadamicals defender David Elebert is wanted by Sheffield United, Doncaster and Hibernian. The goalkeeper Darren Quigley of Derry City looks likely to move to Falkirk or Wolves if Hennesey goes. Swansea are after Irish midfielder James Chambers from Shelbourne.
  To the person that said

I just got back from the Celtic–St Mirren match, where i was watching the game alongside senior Celtic directors. One of them had talked to Strachan about Arthur Boruc and his constant disiplinary problems after the match. The challenge he made against St Mirren's Craig Dargo was the final straw for Strachan and many board members, who feel he should of been sent off and Boruc will be shipped out in January due to constant problems. At the front of the queue will be Spurs and eventually Man City after their attempt to lure Buffon with silly–money fails.
£5–8 Million should seal the signature of the cigar–smoking, eratic, trouble–maker.

I agree with strachan in his interveiw on friday he didnt do anything wrong just because he went out in poland and got drunk and smoked cigars big deal he didnt break any rules what about skippy he smokes do you want rid of him in january and brown for all the bad tackles he made last season?

I bet your one of these people that in the next 2 champions league games boruc will play great and that will be him a legend again so leave the big man alone and post real rumours.
  All these people saying Wenger will be sacked are all wrong. Wenger will buy 1 or 2 experienced players in January, and will hopefully get Eduardo back in the next 2 weeks. Dennis Bergkamp and Martin Keown will be brought into the backroom staff to learn from Wenger, and at the end of the season, wenger will leave to go to PSG, and Tony Adams will be brought in as manager with Dennis Bergkamp and Martin Keown as his assistants.
  I know for a fact that arsene wenger will not leave and that funds wwill be made available. the gunners will bid on davvis silva (valencia) Yaya Toure (barca)and suprsingly scott sinclair (chelsea) and Heinz Muller (barnsley).

West Ham are in talks with: Alexis Sánchez – Udinese, Andreas Ivanschitz – Panathinaikos, Jaime Gavilan – Getafe, Nedum Onohua – Man City, Benjani Mwaruwari – Man City and Stephen Appiah who is currently training with Brescia Gianluca Nani´s previous club.

Zola wants either Ivanschitz or Gavilan on the left hand side, Ivanschitz is versatile and can cover both flanks and centre mid.

Those who will be sold in January are Matty Etherington, Danny Gabbidon, Jimmy Walker, Kyel Reid, Tony Stokes and Nigel Quashie.

No key players will be sold and there are funds available for Zola.

Zola will be given time alongside Clarke and Nani.
  Madjid bougherra to leave rangers in january going to marseille for around £4million. replacements – 1st choice Tonel at sporting around £3million, 2nd choice darren barr at falkirk, rangers fan for £1.8million.
  January transfers will be mainly contested between the mid to bottom league teams, these would be minor transfers, a couple of big names could be in the hat, including alonso of liverpool, galas arsenal, tevez perm deal, henry barca, xavi barca. With the current state of economy all the big silly transfer fee's being banged about these will be cut by 25% at least.(unless the buyer is either chelsea or man city) mark my words, Biggest spenders will be Man city with hopes of buying a big name centre back (wont be JT) canavaro a possible target, spurs will add to squad with diarra looking a close target, bolton/hull/stoke/everton/boro/fulham/blackburn will also add to their squads. west ham to be the big sellers but not many 1st squad to go. blackburn will part with paul ince, with colin hendry and tim flowers in the frame. newcastle and west ham will be sold at the end of the financial year. big summer targets. . DROGBA TO REAL, AGUERO TO MAN CITY (WORLD TRANSFER RECORD). HUNTELLAR TO CHELSEA, DIEGO TO MAN UTD, the Mole.
  Arriving at Glasgow Celtic will be :

Semir Stilic (Lech Poznan) £2m
William Gallas (Arsenal) £4m (cut price)
Lukasz Zaluska (Dundee United) £1m
Steven Fletcher (Hibernian) £2m+ Cillian Sheridan
Jermaine Beckford (Leeds United) £2m
Liam Ridgewell (Birmingham City) £1.7m

  New to the site, Not new to almost fact rumours. Other than the obvious rumours, I only post rumours that are more likely than others:

Alonso will sign for a spanish club.

Agger will take his role. Barry will not be signing for The Reds.

Liverpool will Bring in a LB and a RB and off load their curent ones for a straight swap.

Gallas will sign for West Ham. For a Bargain but will be earning over 100k a week.

West Ham will put in a 10m bid for D Cisse.

Wenger will bring in 3 over 26 year old players. 1 CB, 1 RM, 1 CM.
I do not have info on the players. (More than Likely from french league)

Man city are expected to go on a shopping spree outspending that of chelseas. The owners have a list of (in hughes'opinion) the best players in the world in every position on a 4–4–2 formation.

The owners have told Hughes he is free to buy whoever he wants but the team must play attacking,exciting football.Bids for strikers and attacking midfielders will be number 1 priority.

Expect to see bids for, John Terry, Buffon, Kaka, Messi, Owen, Robben, Van der vaart, C Ronaldo, G Heinz, Ronaldhino, Seedorf, Viera, Teves, D Kuyt. Yes, Kuyt of liverpool. You cant make this up. G Batistuta (Forwards) L Figo ( Midfielders) Maldini (Defenders) Are expected to be offered huge wage deals to Coach. Great time to be a Man C fan.

Hughes will have 1 season to impress after strengthening the squad, if he fails Frank Riikaard is number 1 pick for new manager.Not mourhino. Thats the only list and info i have.

Mr JS.
  Tony Adams is a huge admirer of Pennant and will allow Johnson to join Liverpool and also raise cash for a replacement right back. I hear he wants Geremi from Newcastle.
  Inside knowledge. Mowbray will be fired in December and replaced by Big Sam. He will off load Greening and five other names some in the starting eleven. Money will come with the appointment to get him in and he will fire WBA to safety by mid March or he will resign.
  Gabi heinze and bastian schweinsteiger 2 sign for liverpool in jan also sergio ramos will sign in the summer with alonso goin the other way 100% true.
  Just heard from Matty Taylor parents that he wants a move back south. Harry has earmarked him as Left sided cover, Matty is a big Spurs fan, and is beleived to be chumping at the bit to team up with Harry again.Though the rumor with his parents is Harry wil left Essou return to France and Bale will go Liverpool.
Also another Spurs fan is wanted by harry Scotty parker!!
