Football Rumours Archive October 25 2006


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Just got word from a cousin who works very closely with some big names in the premier league . According to him , there will be a hive of activity in January . Man U to go for Hargreaves and Defoe . Arsenal to offload Adebayor and attempt to sign Huntelaar . Chelsea to go for Torres . Liverpool to go for Alves and Villa and get rid of Warnock and Dudek . Also he claims that a huge name in world football may be attracted to the north west next summer . Would'nt or couldn't say who or to what team though .Be serious, how will torres go to Chelsea.

Chelsea had 4 forwards already, nad torres is not a Money person.

So even if he leaves, he will go to ManU.

OR Arsenal. .

Of corse no Real Madrid 4 forwards.

Liverpool no money and bad position in league

Barcelona! MaybeLFC Rumours:-

Right lets get this straight. There are some ridiculous rumours on here. Riise, Gerrard, Gonzalez, Bellamy and Gonzo will not be leaving. at least give Bellamy 1 season rather than 3 months. Some fans on here are expecting and instant transition. It will take time.

January Transfers:-

Lucas Neill (£1m or pre-contract agreement)

Anton Ferdinand (£5m)

Goalkeeper (not sure but possible: Valdes, Buffon or Robinson)






We will sign a CF next summer. It will be a big name.

- Gaz- Tony Mowbray is set to sign Daniel Dichio and Gary Breen on loan to strengthen his promotion push."Torres will sign for chelsea for 30m. Can people please stop saying things like 43m! Its not realistic for a player thet young who could be awful in the premier league!" - Whom ever said this must realise that 30m is just as outrageous a fee! If anyone signs Torres the fee will not exceed 26m - no club in the world gets 30m out for anything other than a great (past or present) like: Ronaldinho, Figo, Zidane, Shevchenko, Kaka etc. Torres is so unproven that not even Barca in my eyes rate him as a 30m player!Rangers News !

According to my source, Rangers will spend well in the coming transfer window. Apparently there was money available to PLG during the previous window but he declined using it. He wanted to see what was what in the SPL before spending any real money and he was also wishing to keep a large chunk to strengthen the squad should we reach the Champions League next season. Due to the poor start to the season PLG will re-evaluate his spending process and there will be a decent amount of money spent in this window.

CMON THE GERS!To all those Newcastle fans expecting a big spending spree and buying gabbidon and ferdiand that's rubbish as you haven't got the money to buy them. Alan Pardew will be sacked after the game against Chesterfield with the suprise contender being none other than former west ham player and Croatia manager Slavan BillicEveryone needs to stop the unrealistic rumours surrounding Arsenal. The Gunners won't be going after any new signings in January as Arsene Wenger has publicly stated, especially in the striking department. We won't sell Emmanuel Adebayor anytime soon so get over it, and as well as the Togolese forward we also have Thierry Henry, Julio Baptista, Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott. Arsenal have no need to replace or add to that strikeforce. I also can't see Freddie Ljungberg ever leaving the Emirates, but that's just an opinion.When bruce gets the sack and o'leary is appointed expect roy aitken to be his number 2, His first targets will be erik bakke, michael bridges and garry kelly, to help nurture the young talentShepherd heard on sunday emre will be allowed to leave only over my dead body. alredy turned two offers down from ac milan aFreddie Shepherd will resign and a new board of directors will be appointed on the 1st of November as the Belgravia Group take charge. The only question then will be is what role do they have arranged for GR?To all you moronic newcastle supporters, why would Lucas Neill join you, he wants to move up in the world, not take a step down and you can harp on all you like about being a bigger club than Blackburn but the truth is you only have about Four players that deserve to be in the premiership. He will go to Liverpool(probable) or tottenham(possible) much as it hurts me to say, being a blackburn supporter.Newcastle team after jan:

Babayaro-2mALL of Liverpool will do a ManU(protests) if benitez lets gerrard leave. The best player in world playing out of position????? also expect many to leave and some young england guns to come in. Baines, Nugent(everton fan though???), Billy Sharp of crewe has been scouted several times also expect Pennant and Gonzalez to start holding down places. Maybe J Cole will come in if Mourinho starts sulking again that the attacking mid DOESNT DO ENOUGH DEFENDING.Hi. to the people who said gerrard will leave anfield for an english club. get real if he leaves liverpool it won't be for another prem team cos his heart is at liverpool. not saying i know where he is going if he is going but come on gerrard at chelsea. behave. also titus bramble is headed for southend united not ipswich. his brother tesfaye played for us (mighty shrimpers) for years and has been telling titus what a great place, manager and vision the club has.GOOONERNEWS It is true Arsenal will not be signing anyone in January.This is due to deals with Marseille,Hearts and Ajax over the signings of Franck Ribery,Craig Gordon and Klaas Jan Huntelaar!These 3 deals will be completed in the summer.The clubs feared that Arsenal would take the 3 stars in Jan so they have cut a deal giving Arsenal first option in the summer.Gareth Bale is no longer a target as AW thinks that both Armand Traore and Gael Clichy are better prospects.Five players though will come in over the summer?The other 2 are Anderson(fc porto)and Micah Richards(man city).A number of players will be leaving Arsenal, these are Ljungberg,Aliadiere,Lauren,Larsson,Lehmann and Poom.Arsene Wenger is a very smart man. He said a few days ago that he would not be making any more transfers in January. Well I can tell all of you now that this is infact a smoke screen and Arsene has become aware that whenever he moves for a player, another Premier League team always try and sign him instead so he will create this smoke scre

en to reduce the amount of attetntion on Arsenal FC's transfer period.

Now, there's a few players that Arsene has targeted.

1) Franck Ribery is now a 75% deal. It was about 35% until Marseille lost at home to Lyon which effectively destroyed most of Marseilles hopes for silverware.

2) Fernando Meira may be signed from Stuttgart and Djourou would go out on loan.

3) Arsene will then aquire Charles N'zogbia from Newcastle in a swap deal for Philippe Senderos. Senderos would replace the departing Titus Bramble (who is on his way to Ipswich Town).

4) Robin Van Persie is apparently causing a racket in the changing rooms with his ill-mannered behaviour and Arsene hates bad boys so he will be sold to PSV Eindhoven in a 4M plus Arouna Kone deal.

5) Bisek Lauren will be sold to Sevilla in exchange for JÚsus Navas, the promising midfielder.

6) Finally, Arsene will bring Craig Gordon to Ashburton Grove from Hearts to replace Jens Lehmann who will be returning to Borussia Dortmund in a deal which would bring Nuri Sahin to North London when we've payed Borussia an extra 7M.

7) Other youngsters thought to be added to the squad are Peter Odemwingie, Bakari Kone, Barusso and Fernando GagoHas anyone who has commented about Gerrard leaving Liverpool actually heard him say that he wants to go? or that he doesn't like playing on the right side of midfield? Agreed his best position is in the centre but he is still the best right midfielder Liverpool have, at least until Pennant finds his feet. If Benitez was playing him there just to annoy him don't you think he knows forty five thousand screaming scousers would be ready to kick his head in at the next home game! Surely he took the job on to make Liverpool the best in the world again, and I'm sure he knows getting rid of Gerrard would be a step backwards.

Anyway to the rumours. C.Ronaldo to Real Madrid(probably in the summer), to replace Beckham(again!)

Brooksie.Micah Richards will move to Manchester United in the summer. He owes City nothing and is sick of the inconsistancy. It will be a shock to City fans but United will make a 5 million bid and he will be Gary Neville's replacement.Liverpool gonna have a majour clearout

out:Garcia,Hypia,zenden,reina,dudek and all the fringe players. he will generate +-30 mil and he will buy a utility winger in the lennon mould,a central defender and a he will buy a new keeper for carson to be backup to. .

Man Utd will sign hargreaves and nani and if SAF has the funds torres,higuan or adu. and a possibly a right back

others:rossi,smith,richardson,NUFC News

Belgravia Group have put in a offer for the club however their is a small issue of FS been the money he has valued the club at £110m Belgravia Group listed the value of the club looking at the current gate's and the position with the squad at £89 - £93m. At the meeting they outlined just what they are looking to do and the investment to make the club a top 4 rated club. With a investment of £40 million and a new manager been sold to the shareholders it's only FS and co been the block. We all hope after their statment that the managment team looks at this and comes to a aggrement on a price as after the last results and the budget for the NY transfers been dependant on the sales of some first team and fringe players + £5m (yes ONLY £5m) We all hate change but to be honest over the past few years it has been very hard to watch the likes of FS and co taking so much out of the club and although they have allowed money for players available it is nothing like the days of Kegan which made them tight fisted with the FANS MONEY and shareholders money. I am not going into players or manager listed but if this all goes to plan their should be some happy Toon fans, the only thing I can say is their will be a new number 9 shirt with a player that can fit the requirments of the club and 4 high rated players for the defensive and central areas all are tried and tested for the UK and are with the top 6 clubs.No chance of Newcastle signing Davies in January, especially now that NP is first team coach, NP and CD did not exactly see eye to eye with numerous fallings out, if NP had still been at the helm last Sunday then McShane would have been given the nod ahead of CD.John Utaka to Barca in January - deal's as good as done.Man Utd news.

Manu will sign Huntelaar and Nani. United will also sign David Beckham, who will finish his career in ManU.Beckham going back to United at the end of the season for free - Fergie has been in contact with him and told him that if he leaves the 'pop star lifestyle' behind they'll take him back. He's seen that the team could do with strengthening on the wings and sees Beckham as an excellent acquisition for nothing!Henrik Larsson to Aston Villa in January!

Martin O'Neil is keen to renure his partnership with Henke and will offer Larsson's Swedish club Helsingborg and offer which will see him join for £2.5m, but return on a free transfer in July 2008.Rangers in ben foster 1.5 million fron man u chris eagle season loan fro man u steven whittakar 1 million from hibs john mensah 3.5 million rennes GK.Foster LB.Smith CB.Papc CB.Mensah RB.Whittakar DM.Clement CM.Ferguson RM.Eagles LM.Adam CF.Boyd/Sebo CF.Buffel/NovoMillwall news. leon knight to sign on loan today. ben chorley also comming in on free. willie given next two games to prove himself, if he fails, stuart till to break bank to get teddy sheringham. 100% true.I've heard that if Liverpool continue to underperform then there will be a lot of activity in January. Moores will give all he can to the cause to restructure the team, with the emphasis on young players, with big money spent on Daniel Alves (£11m), Anton Ferdinand (£7m), Gareth Bale (£6m), Micah Richards(£3m), Gonzalo Higuain (£9m) and finally in will come long term target Simao for £12m. Investment will be secured by the end of the season, no megabucks though, the new owner has apparently pledged to make £30m available at for every transfer window. Depending on where we end up, Gerrard may, as much as I hate to say it, leave, and will bring in a hefty fee, so we may have between £60 and £70 million pounds to spend, this will be used again to secure young talent, with hopeful bids for several starlets, three of these that Rafa will definitely bid for if he gets the Gerrard money are Messi, Lennon and Reo-Coker.Alan Pardew will leave West Ham in next 7days. Adrian Boothroyd board room favourite to take over.
