Football Rumours Archive April 25 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Heyyyy peeps right, the rumors are that liverpool will sell torres, babel, kuyt and intjade, and with the money form this willl sign the likes of aiden mcgeady (no7) lennon (no19) and joe hart (no01), plus start to see some spanninsh players movin nsk at the acadamy

over to the govan side of glasgow, if rangers don't have their clearout then they will go into administration and therefor be no more, pretty much waht nearly happend to the greatest team on earth, celtic will get rid of the people not good enought to pull on the hoops i.e. sameras, mark brown, maloney, VOH, and naylor and will be replaced by, jose enrique, ross mccormik (celtic fan) james mcfadden (celtic fan) and a strong midfielder to play with scott brown since robson and hartley are gettign old, also if newcastle go down (which they will) expect to see damiaen duff (anova celtic fan) to replace the exiting naka, baceuse oki koki and mccourt are not ready to be in the first team yet, here we go for 4 in a row

JaMeS PaRr in the knowwww, ya knoww
  Shearer has reportedly drawn up two lists of targets for the Summer, one if they are relegated, and one if they stay up. A list of outs has also been drafted up if they stay and they will attempt to salvage anyone who will stay if they drop, mostly like big names like Owen and Martins would leave, and also probably Collochini who has International ambition with the world cup in 2010 nearing. Even if they stay up Collochini will probably leave as he is not rated by Shearer, and will probably follow the likes of Duff and Smith who have underperformed this year. From theses sales, at the most about 12million would be generated,plus a likely injection from Ashley could increase the transfer budget to around or just under 20million, if they stay up!! If they go down only a proportion of the money mades from sales will be put forward.

Possible ins if they stay up:
a experianced centre back, possibly Upson. 5–6mil
a bid would probably be put in for Richards aswell but we would not have the money for a bidding war as there are many admirers. 10mil min!!

Both of these players won't be signed, only 1 wud b.
Possible Nani loan, although again there is competition.

Although Riquelme reportedly rejected Newcastle, I think he will tried to be signed, as he is ageing this wouldprobably be his last chance to play European football. Would probably sign for around 8 to 10mil.

Then money would be spent on either a defesnive midfielder or another defender. probably a 4mill rated player.

If they can keep hold of their strikers then no money will be needed for them as Carrol has improved greatly this season and if owen cn get sum games under his belt he will eventually get his strike rate bak./ and who cn forget martins, he has alot to prove if theystay up nx season.

Possible ins if they are relegated:

There are to many to name, but expect young english talent!!!
  I work for the marketing department at West Bromich Albion. I have first hand imformation about our main transfer target this summer. . Its none other than Ricardo Fuller from 'Hand–ball United' (I mean Stoke)

Ricardo Fuller is on £10,000 per week at Stoke and we are willing to double that to make him the focal point of our team. There will be a big clear out of the lightweight midfielders (Tex, Koren, Valero) So plenty of room on the wage budget to make a big signing.

  Walsall News

Andy Todd free from Derby in the summer Also stronge rumour regarding Watford sending Theo Robinson part ex for Sansara moving to the Hornets.
  Wenger has stated today that Rosicky will not be back this season. .and the rumours are he will never return. Apparently the problem is more than just an injury and more along the "lines" of a habit. There is no way Wenger would have spent as much on Arshavin as he did if Rosicky were coming back this season, not with Walcott, Nasri, etc etc.

That being said, i have heard three rumours. The ongoing rubbish about Ireland coming ro Arsenal is just not going to happen as Wenger said that he would want Ireland for Toure. However, with our attacking midfield almost there, a defensive midfielder is most likely, with Veloso or Inler the probably options. But the biggest rumour i've heard is Alonso(therefore not Veloso or Inler) coming and Walcott going the other way. Not sure if i like that, but if it keeps Fabregas here then so be it.

The biggest surprise is not so much Bendtner going, but the fact he will be exchanged for Feillini (spelling). Arsenal will have to stump up £7m aswell as Bendtner. This will pave the way not only for Moutinho to join Everton with the cash coming in, but Arsenal to sell Adebayor to Milan for £20m. This will fund the purchase of Feillini and an approach for Gourcuff, as maybe Walcott and definitely Rosicky on their way.

Finally, now that the House of Commons Football committee have agreed to the 6+5 rule, expect to see wenger make moves for more English Players. Simpson will come back, Gibbs, Randall, Wilshere all to play a bigger part from 2010/11 season.
  Seriously Strong– Eidur Gudjohnsen to Blackburn Rovers, my dad sat next to him in a london bar last night with his agent signing a contract while talking on the phone repeatedly saying 'Blackburn Rovers'

marlon king (wigan,£1.5m)
sean davis (pompey,£1m)
steve finnan (espanyol,free)
giles barnes (derby,£2.5m)
gael givet (marseille,£3m)
  Liverpool and Real Madrid have agreed a deal in principle. It is a swap between Gonzalo Higuain and Xabi Alonso. Benitez has targetted Higuain as the player needed for the right wing due to his pace and striker instincts. He does not want to sell Alonso but the capture of Higuain would be more important than keeping Alonso. barry will replace him for an 8mil fee. Kuyt is also not for sale but if a club offers anywhere near the 15mil mark, he would be sold. Hamburg and Manchester City are chasing him and Hamburg are willing to pay £14mil. It is not known how serious City's interest is. Benitez will add David Silva to the squad as well for around £20mil. Ryan Babel will be sold for around £10mil. Arsenal, Athletico, Tottenham and Bayern Munich are chasing him. One more attacking midfielder will be added, but this player will be a young squad player. It is between Kuba and Renato Augusto. Degen will stay. There will be no right back joining as Liverpool could use Arbeloa, degen, Carragher or Darby.
  To the guy who said fabregas is going to barca for 6 million = hleb wat planet r u on why would we take hleb and 6 million witch is worth about 18–20 miilion
fabregas won't be going unless barca r willing to pay 45 million
to the guy that said tevez to arsenal never goin to happen
arsenal will sign pato or bojan for betdner and arsene will sell silvestre and sign lescott or upson
  Birmingham city will be having a very, very busy summer.
In an attempt to win back the trust of wary supporters the Birmingham Board are preparing to invest heavily in the summer. The board have given Mcliesh 16m to spend, with further funds available, explained below, should targeted players become available. One initial piece of business being thrashed out at the moment between Manchester City and Birmingham are the signings of England youngsters and Joe Hart on loan and also joining Birmingham from Eastlands will be Daniel Sturridge (nephew of former Birmingham player Simon Sturridge), the promising young England u21 striker, who is out of contract in the summer. Both Players are unhappy at the lack of first team opportunities available to them at the city of Manchester Stadium, and Birmingham plan to take full advantage of this situation and a similar situation at Tottenham. Alex Mcliesh has targeted three playes at spurs whom he is desperate to add to his squad. Gio Dos Santos, Tom Huddlestone and Gareth Bale will all move to Birmingham City for a combined 6 million. Harry wants rid and will take a guaranteed 6m as he is not sure he will get the same money if the players are sold separately due to clauses and add ons etc. Both of these deals are at advanced stages of negotiations and should be announced early in early June. Big Eck is also desperate for fresh blood at centre half, especially following the unfortunate injury that senior Centre back Liam Ridgewell received, this has prompted the Birmingham Board to provide eck with an extra 4 million on top of his transfer budget to strengthen the main weakness in the squad. This 4m has been targeted for the signing of Steven Taylor from Newcastle should the Geordies be relegated. Birmingham also plan to raid relegated teams Middlesbrough and West Bromwich with the signings of Didier Digard 5m and Robert Huth 2.5m from the Tesside club, and that of Gianni Zuiverloon for 2m from the Baggies. Mcliesh will also attempt to sign tricky irish winger Aiden Mgeady from Celtic. Mcgeady had a falling out with Gordon Strachen during the 2008–09 season and the working relationship between the two is still strained to say the least, Mcgeady will be signed for 2.5 million. Birmingham will then attempt to sign one of either Kevin Doyle, Andrew Johnson or Obafemi Martins with an extra 8 million held back from being spent this season, hece doing promotion on the cheap so that when the club bounced back they could spend and invest. The current loan signings of Kemy Augustien, Djimi Traore and Carlos Costley will leave the club in the summer. As will Hameur Bouazza and Scott Sinclair unless their current clubs drop the asking price. Lee Bowyer will be signed for a nominal fee.
The following players are on the way out:
Martin Taylor 250k – Norwich
Colin Doyle 1m – Cardiff
Marcus Bent 500k Sheff Weds
Carlos Costley loan rtn
Kemy Augustien loan rtn
Stephen Kelly 1m – Stoke
Djimi Traore loan rtn
Mehdi Nafti free
Gary McSheffrey 1.7m – Coventry
Kevin Phillips 150k Nottingham Forest or Doncaster

  It is long awaiting rumour that chelsea fc are tracing AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti and it is confirmed that he is going to sign for Chelsea in next few days. Contract is being put into place and soon Carlo Ancelotti will be in Blue.

The list has been handed by Carlo Ancelotti to owner Roman Abramovich:

1) Kaka
2) Robhino
3) Pato
4) Robinho
5) David Villa

This is true and going to happen soon. .
  Anyone heard of the rumour regarding Richard Branson taking over at Everton FC? All I can say is that a number of persons close to me have relayed this story/rumour/fact/lie. Interesting, very interesting. Most Everton fans probably know that Branson was Bill Kenwright's guest for the semi–final at Wembley. Was this a social or business occasion? Watch this space!
  The people shown around liverpool before the arsenal game where all from rbs. the meeting was for purposes of refinancing, not buying. there may be a change of ownership but not until the financing deal is due for renewal.
  Well done to the person who said David Burnside–the Northern Ireland politician and a group of Businessmen/Financiers from London will takeover Rangers,I was over in Belfast recently,the company I work for deals with a few firms in the province,over there they telling me that some of their business/political connections had heard the same,it was to go ahead last year,but negotiations broke down,now it is all sorted and will be announced shortly.

Souness was mentioned,but not as chairman,he will be involved in the football director side of the club.
Managers linked,Micheal and Brian Laudrup partnership,Louis Van Gaal and Slaven Bilic,significant funds will be available to whoever takes over.hopefully this will be a new and successful future for this great club.
  To all the Rangers rumours hovering around Barry Freguson, Barry Ferguson is worth £1 million at a push. Where on earth will you get £3.5 million for a player like him?? He is slow, over rated, injury prone and can't attack the oppositon like he used to! Boyd on the other hand is a great goal scorer but to even get in the region of £4.5 million for him is a bit to much. He looks good against the likes of Motherwell, St Mirren and Kilmarnock but seriously come on!

Dont know where Rangers are getting the money for Craig Gordon at £5M AND Alan Hutton?? The Gers are in debt up to there eye balls, expect alot of youth players making their debut next term.

the captain
  Few rumours i heard r

lpool– ins
g.johnson 12m
javi martinez–8to12m
One of either (Raul) or (kerlon) more likely to be kerlon as he is young and cn play behind striker or out wide you heard it first.Aguero will sign nxt year as benitez is goin t prepare a monster bid somthin which he cnt afford this yr.Babel will be given till christmas t prove himself.
Utd won't sign any attacking players main target is a young defender.
