Football Rumours Archive March 25 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

First Arsenal,Barcelona and Real Madrid will battle for 15 million rated midfield player Yohann Gourcuff.
Another Arsenal target is Felipe Melo who is tracked by Man City and Juventus aswell.Player is worth 12 million
Liverpool will be looking to get a striker,but not David Villa.Most likely it will be Liorente who plays his football in Athletic Bilbao and is worth around 7–10 million.Benitez as already made a 22 million euros offer to Real Madrid for Robben.
Now we go to Chelsea News.Quaresma won`t sign a permenant deal with Chelsea.The reason is Frank Rijkaard will be the new boss in the summer.
Chelsea will offload big number of player to revitalise the team with new ones.Van Der Vaart,Zhirkov,and few more more players are linked with a move.
And the two Manchester Clubs:
Man City: Diego Forlan could make his move back to the Premiership.The player has scored 19 goals in La Liga and Atletico want 30 million,Barzzagli and Zaccardo is another pair of Italian Talent that Man City want to buy from Wolfsborg 16 million.And more to come as half of the squad will be offloaded in the summer window.
Man United: Not a lot of changes will be in the squad.There is some speculiation that Ronaldo and Rooney is going to be offloaded is total nonsence.Maybe Ronaldo but if only he wants to leave.Tevez will go to Man City or Real Madrid, but most realistic is Real Madrid for 30 million euros.
  I liv in spain and the spanish are saying johhny evans has signed 4 real madrid 4 around 12 million
  For all you preople who think barry will leave for 18 million or around that are wrong. . .he can simply buy out his last year of his contract due to being a the club over a long period of time, FIFA ruleing. . so if anything itll be in the 5–9 million bracket!!!!
  Newcastle owner Mike Ashly is going to launch a fullscale bid to get Steve Bruce as the next Newcastle manager. He is impressed at the job he has done with a limited budget and without star name players. Dennis Wise will walk or be sacked and Bruce will have full control over signings and team affairs. In will come Ben Haim, Joe Hart, Robert Huth and Paul Scharner. He will also persuade Owen, Bassong and Martins to stay put. He will do what no Newcastle manager has ever done before and start by suring up the defence and building from there. A lot of deadwood will be shifted (Colocini, Xisco, Viduka, etc) and youth team players will be given their chance. He will achieve mid–table saftey next season which will then give Mike Ashley more of a chance to sell up.
  Why does everyone on here think that ribery is going to man u, 1, hes worth about 80 mill, 2 if u don't read facts then read the fact on byern webiste please, ribery has stated he would not leave byern and and not even a bid of 100 mil would tempt byern to sell, 3 with the finacel meltdown man u will only buy 2 players in the summer 1 will be in the range of 28 mill, and the other under 20.

really get facts right, ribery if anything will go to barca
  If/when newcastle go down there is a deal in place that would bring martins to westham for around £7million and newcastle would get ashton on loan until january giving him a chance to get some much needed match fitness also rumours that the hammers are after either nani or bable on loan to get some naural width to their narrow team

  City's summer shopping list:
–Samuel Eto'o – £20m
–Lionel Messi – £120m
–Karim Benzema – £30m
–Sergio Aguero – £30m
–Yaya Toure – £15m
–Dani Alves – £25m
–John Terry – £40m
–David Villa – £50m
–Sergio Ramos – £25m
–Ronaldinho – £15–17m
–Alex (Chelsea) – £12m
–Carolos Tevez – £32m
–Kaka – £110m
Obviously not all of these players will be signed, possibly none of them, however these amoungst other players will all be looked at and many may be bidded for. Players like Cesc Fabregas, Fernando Torres and Cristiano Ronaldo would not even consider a move to City, despite City possibly set to show interest.

In Arsene We Trust

  This is for the guy who wrote about Rangers. The end of your post was "I DEMAND ONLY THE TRUTH."

Great, at last a poster with insight and intelligence. I never thought it was possible on this forum. You are dead on with what you say about Walter Smith and McCoist. Levein is not going to be the next Rangers manager. McCoist and McDowall will be the first team coaches with Ian Durrant stepping into the dugout alongside the two Mcs. Smith will go upstairs and will stay there right through until his retirement. The problem with Rangers (except for the first team's lack of funds) is Murray Park. Staff are being paid off but that's a mix between the wages and the lack of production coming through. It's not working out and already are way behind Celtic as far as youth development is concerned.

  This is my first post,I have a very good source who works closely with Anfield scouts,and the word on the grapevine is that Rafa is indeed looking for someone to add more width to the team and also someone who can pick a killer pass, and his No 1 target is none other than Alexsander Hleb from Barcelona! He will rescue him from his torrid time in Spain by offering 11.5million which will be accepted by Barca who will then bid for Frank Ribery to replace him. You heard it hear first. Keaner.

  Villa will finish 5th this season but next season they will really test the top 4 and there stregnth as MON looks to bring in not only the quality of usual but some big names too. MON will sell Zat Knight to the highest bidder and then bring in Lescott from everton for a fee of about 10 mil, next will be the 4 young english talents from city johnson for around 6mil, richards for around 8 mil, hart for about 4 mil and sturidge for about 2.5 mil, MON will then look to bring in J.Cole for 16 million, Rosicky for 12 million, hargreves for 12 million and if barry is to leave MON will insist on a swap deal involving Alonso.
  Im a liverpool fan and i follow my team very closely.these are the deals i would like to see:
owen(free)–he would be an ideal second striker to torres or could even fill in when hes injred.

iniesta–(20–27mill)–nearest thing to messi in europe.would give us much needed creativity in the middle and wings.

g.johnson(6–9mill)–he is decent rb and would be needed coz if 6+5 rule happens.

a.johnson(6–10mill)–a very talented winger and could suceed in liverpool.

id also love to see rafa giving our youngsters a chance.i mean nemeth seriously deserves a chance and now hes back form injury maybe hell get a chance b4 the end of the season.pacheco too young but spearing and darby have shown they can step up for a challenge(in cl).

  To "The Man in the Know"
You seriously need to check your keyboard as some of your letters are missing. It's more than obvious to everyone that SAF is starting to lose the plot, why would he bring fa rant again 2 weeks afterwards and the check your facts SAF rant on spending. It's obvious Rafa has got under his skin and its worked. Everyone knows you're weakness now, all teams have to do is go after your defence and they will bottle it, in turn this makes the midfield drop deeper and you've lost your initiative to attack. Obviously still dangerous that goes without saying but your defence don't like a fast tempo against them they get rattled. I respect your observations but must respectfully disagree with you as there are 24 points left on the table and only a fool would say its done and dusted. My keyboard seems to be working fine.

in the know
  LFC– Rumour is that Rafa Benitez wants Arjen Robben for 20million but highly unlikely as before the liverpool and real madrid games he come out and said he hates liverpool. But if C.Ronaldo signs for real then he will leave as he doesn't want to play with him but still doesn't mean he will sign for LFC. He would be an excellent signing as he is most probably one of the fastest wingers in the game today. . .JG. .
  I Have A Mouth Watering Rumour Coming Out My No.1 Source.Upcoming Brazillian Star Is On His On Way 2 Spain Or Possibly England.He Has Attracted Many Top European Clubs Such As Real Madrid And Manchester United.My Source Tells Me He Has Applied For His Work Permit And Could Be On His Way 2 The Premier League.Remember The Name Ricardinho Costa!!!!!!!
  The Red Pablo is back with some rad red rumours! Firstly, all the rumours around Rafa signing Glen Johnson are pretty accurate. An approach has already been made to Pompey who are considering. Rafa does not want to get into the same situation he had this season where Arbeloa was injured & he had to revert Carra and on that one dismal occasion Skertal to RB. Pompey need to clear some debt so selling Johnson for around £8–10mil (which is more than they bought him for) makes sense. Rafa also wants to bolster his english playing contention in preperation for the potential 6+5 fifa ruling.

Rafa is also looking for another striker and given that at least £20 mil funds will be made available to him plus the money from the Keane sale, means he is looking relatively big. The only problem is that he is unlikely to get Villa or Agreuro and def not Tevez (Ferguson will never sell a prime asset to Liverpool).

Other than that the only players that will definately be leaving are Pennant, Itandjie and Degan.

The Red Pablo out
  Villa does not want to leave spain and is likely to stay at Valencia

Silva also wants to stay at Valencia and does not want to play in the EPl prefering a move to Barcelona, but has expressed some intresting playing for Juventus who are interested in signing him to replace the retiring Nedved

Aguero wants to stay at Atletico and they have said they won't sell him

Benzema has said he will be staying at Lyon for at least another year and has express interest in playing in the Epl one day

Kaka will not leave Milan

Ribery will only move if Bayern fail to bring in more high quality players and if he does it will be to another German club or Real Madrid

Walcott may join Liverpool for as little as 500k due to a clause in his contract(he is a LCF fan)

Micheal Owen's contract runs out at the end of the season and can leave Newcastle for free likely to Liverpool

Henry wants to end his career at Barcalona

Benitez is no longer intserested in Barry, and if Barry wants to leave Villa he can buy out his contract for 2m pounds

Spurs will not sell Lennon

Downing will leave if Middlesbough are relegated with Spurs and liverpool among others interested

C Ronaldo now wants to stay at ManU
