  "A couple of rumours regarding Leeds United i have a mint contact there and believe what i am about to say:

Lewis Buxton on loan from Stoke."

Mr T – Buxton's loan to The Owls was turned into a permanent deal in January! Keep Up!!
  Liverpool rumours

Klose, johnson and tuncay will be joining this summer. no if, buts or maybes on this one. Some deals that could happen are as follows:

Villa/Silva: Rafa has been in contact with his old club for some time now about these two due to thier dodgy finances, but was shocked at the 50 mil tag on Villa and 28 mil one on Silva. Altho not impressed he still might discuss it with the owners about stretching the budget to bring Villa, but won't bother with Silva.

tevez: I love how defensive Man U fans are about this, saying how he is a Utd boy though and through etc. Regardless, he isn't happy with warmin the bench, feeling as though he can't do much more to get into the team. He's impressed with our all action style and is mates with monster Masch. well worth 30mil and a cheaper option than Villa, so it could happen. Oh, and Stop sayin Ferguson/Utd/ the kitman will never let him go to liverpool, he's only on loan, so you can't stop him doin anythin, its outer you're hands, and that's a FACT! lol

  I happened to meet a sports journalist yesterday and it transpired we are both big Liverpool fans. He has lots of contacts in Spain including Guillem Balague and has it on very good authority that Torres has persuaded his good mate Villa to join him in the summer – we can only wait and see if this one is true but it's one of the more genuine rumours on here as it comes from someone very much in the know!
  I've been seeing alot of 'Walcot buy – out cluase' stuff and would luv it to be looked at in depth if there is one and if so what credibilty does it have? I'm a red who really hopes this is the case as LFC would be improved with him at anfield, any help?
  Liverpool are in prime position to beat Juventus to the signing of David Silva for 16m he would prefer to play in England than Italy, Raul Albiol will also sign from Valencia for 8m but only because Daniel Agger will be joining Ac Milan, Gareth Barry and Kierrison are players Benitez is looking at
  Spurs to make a move for Fulham duo Brede Hangeland (6 million pounds) and Clint Dempsey (4.5 million pounds) over the summer.
Joe Hart (MAN CITY)7 mill
Mammo Sakho(PSG)P.EX
Michael Mancienne(CHELSEA)P.EX
Gareth Barry(VILLA)13 mill
David Silva (VALENCIA)7.5 mill + player
Guillame Hoarau (PSG)P.EX
TOTAL:27.5 mill

Manuel Almunia (VILLA)4 mill
William Gallas (PSG)P.EX
Mikael Silvestre (LA GALAXY) 2 mill
Armand Traore (CHELSEA) P.EX
Aboo Diaby (LYON) 8 mill
Amaury Bischoff (SPORTING LISBON)2 mill
Manoo Eboue (PSG) P.EX
Manoo Adebayor (MILAN) P.EX
Niklas Bendtner (MAN CITY) 13 mill
TOTAL:29 mill

Profit of 1.5 mill

  A few rumours I've heard from reliable people who tend to get a lot man united deals spot on> Apparently they will allow Wes Brown and Jon O'Shea to leave in the summer. Antonio Valencia is pretty guaranteed to sign for Man utd and they will launch a bid to sign Axel Witsel and Sofiane Feghouli
  Manchester city will have a mass clear out in the summer and will bring in basically a new squad. Ins will be; Buffon, Zacardo, Terry, Toure, Puyol, Abidal, Messi, quresma, Kaka, Van Der Vart, Gago, Modric, Alonso, Maschrano, Gatuso, Villa, Henry and Etto'o. And then out will be; Hart, schmeichel, richards, Elano, Dunne, Belamy, Benjani, Vassell, M.Petrov, Ierland, Sturridge, Johnson, Castillo, bojinov and one or two youth players on loan.
  For the fan saying rangers youth doing well fair point me old son but and its a big but, these young guys you mention how many have made it into the first team?? at rangers or any other team? not many.

try 9 in a row reserve titles
the system at celtic working far better than at ibrox,more talent coming through and if not stay they play else were in first teams around country

mismanagement for years have cost your lot now.
celtic not to spend lot in summer just enough to step on wee bit,
rangers won't struggle that much in summer always
a scam from minty to pull it out the fire
plus money from euro campaign keeps him going.

fans be more realistic for once the baws burst as they say. no money in any business just now even football. dab1
  Will people please stop posting these silly,silly Rangers rumours. Next manager Terry Butcher. .c'mon! Billy Davies?? Please! And as for the idiot claiming they will be 10 points adrift and looking in the Blue Sq to sign players please grow up. Walter will definately go and move upstairs in the summer. Ally McCoist will take over with kenny mcDowell and Ian Durrant. david Weir will get a coaching role also. Yes Rangers are skint so they won't be looking to pay out any compensation.
Also Barry Ferguson will not be moving to Zenit St.Petersburg. Barry got homesick down the road in Blackburn so theres no way he'll drag his family to Russia! Barry will except a pay cut and stay at Gers rather than uproot his brood.
Personally I'd put the whole lot up for sale apart from Bougherra and Mendes but whose gonna want to spend big money on the Duds wer'e lumbered with like Lafferty.
Hemandi will definately go and his 27k a week will be freed up but signings really depend on who we can move on. .
Oh and Boyd maybe finally off but not for the measley 1 mill someone posted on here. .Why would Gers take that. .maybe closer to the 3,5 mill Rangers excepted in the window.
Lets speak more sense!!

Shankill Ally
  Alot of strong reports from Spain that David Silva and Raul Abidol will join Liverpool in the summer for fees in the region of 25M and 11m respectivly! Both players have been told they will be sold to ease financial difficulties.

Fat Spanish Waiter
  Sven Goren Eriksson to take over at Sunderland in summer

Ricky Sbragia back to being coach ells short sees him as the idea replacement for the club being as he is a top name
  Why does everyone seem to think tevez is owned by man u on here, hes on a 2 year loan from west ham, therefore to the guy who wrote fergie would never let him join rafa at liverpool needs to be reminded of this as he is not under man u, and can go to liverpool

fact, he will join real madrid in the summer along with villia and madrid will play 3 up front, tevez, huntler and villa

aldo the next manager of madrid will be scloria, as he has a better chance of having controll in spain over the team

and to the guy who wrote about celtic, iam a die hard celtic fan, and heslink will not leave on a free as he still has 1 year remaining, therefore money will be made if he is sold, don't expect any big summer singings from celtic this year as its the same old same under strachen

but really get facts right on here the tevez thing pisses me off, hes not manchester uniteds to sell
  AFC News:

Wenger will alow just 2 players to leave in the summer & will not go on a spending spree.
The signing in January of Arshavin used the majority of the transfer budget, as add ons will have to be paid. Expect either Toure or Gallas to leave as it is public knowledge that they don't get along so one will leave, most likely Toure as Gallas contributes vital goals. A fee of roughly 12–15 million will be enough to see him depart with Man.C interested but abroad is more likely, maybe Inter, Juventus or Real Madrid.
Secondly Adebayor has been poor after last seasons exploits so Wenger will cash in on the Togolese striker for anywhere inbetween 20–25 million to either AC Milan or Barcelona. Eboue, Bendtner, Diaby, Clichy, Fabregas, Van Persie will all stay.
On the arrivals front Bassong & Sakho will both be highly likely due to being typical Arsenal players, young, tall, athletic, pacey & french!!
Expect them along with Djourou & a returning Senderos to battle it out to become Gallas's partner at the back.
In terms of replacing Adebayor, Wenger will most likely aqquire a relatively young striker who won't mind rotation as Van Persie, Eduardo, Vela, Bendtner & Arshavin are capable so a player from a lesser league abroad will come in, maybe even no–one & Jay Simpson will cover till January to see his quality.
The only other activity player wise will be one of Miguel Velouso or Yaya Toure. More likely Velouso as If Kolo leaves then Yaya will stay at Barca & Wenger could use Bischoff as an incentive towards any transfer between the two clubs & Wenger regards Denilson, Diaby & Song as high quality squad players.
So any rumours regarding big name high transfer fees will be rubbish, Just look at Wengers track record in the market.
Next January might be different if things don't play out to plan, but for the summer this is more than likely.
  I live in Italy and all I am hearing are these things

David Trezeguet to Chelsea
Iaquinta to Fenabache
Ibrahimovic to Barca
  Liverpool are tracking Glen Johnson from Portsmouth and are preparing a 9m bid for him if Pompey stay up, 6m if Pompey go down. They are also putting the finishing touches on a Gareth Barry bid for 14m, even if Villa qualify for the CL. Adam Johnson from Middlesbrough is under serious consideration if Boro go down. They will bid 10m if they stay up and 7m if they go down. Overseas transfers will see Rafa spend 10m on Raul Albiol, even if Daniel Agger signs a new deal, as Albiol can play in midfield. David Silva will also be bidded for 20m but this bid is likely to be declined as Valencia want 26m for him, even in their financial state. If this bid is rejected, then they will pursue Marek Hamsik and will bid 20m.Rafa is now also searching the globe for two strikers, one is Keirrison and will bid 17m and the other will be Aguero for 33m.
  I have just been informed by a source very close to Everton FC that Jermaine Pennant has signed a pre–contract agreement with the Toffees. This source further implied that David Moyes is currently scouting two players from Valencia in Spain.
  West Ham will be sold inside the next 2 months. a consortium including the dodgy geezer Kia Joorabchian will be the investors.
Tevez will return to upton park as part of the deal above seeing as Kia Joorabchian owns the rights to the little terier, Zola is also looking at trying to bring back joe cole depending upton price. rumour within the clus is that Nani / Zola will have in thr region of £45M to spend in the summer plus any cash made from sales
  Arsenal will sign:
Sakho – 9mil
Steven Taylor – 7mil
Green/Hart/Gordon/Foster – 6mil
Flamini/Inler/Alonso – 10–15mil
Van De Vaart – 5mil
Bojan/Pato – P/X
Maybe even a shock bid for Ryan Shawcross – 3mil

Gallas – 5mil
Song – loan
Fabianski – 2mil
Ade – P/X
Bendtner – 6mil
Senderos – 5mil
Eboue – 7mil
Rosicky – Free
  Fulham chairman Mohamed Al Fayed is refusing to sanction improved contracts for key Fulham players. This specifically impacts on Brede Hangerland who is on relative peanuts. He would probably stay at Fulham if he achieved pay parity with his defensive collegues – but this now looks unlikely.

I have followed Liverpool for over 40 years. I live up here and have family members who are friends with some of the older players and former players. An example? Jerzy Dudek. He still owns his house on the Wirral and intends to return to a North West club if a suitable one makes a decent offer. Blackburn and Man City are in the frame here along with Everton as dark horses. Anyway, to business. Rafa will not be spending a huge amount of money this summer, particularly not on foreign players while the £/€ exchange rate is so poor (virtually 1 for 1). He is looking for a left–winger to compete with Riera (unless Leto bucks–up), and he is looking for a right–winger–come–forward to compete with Benayoun, Paul Anderson may return from loan to fill this role. Babel he sees as a utility left–right winger/forward. The defence he is happy with bar the contract situation surrounding Danny Agger. His ideal pairing is Skrtel & Agger, with Jamie 'C' taking big Sami's place on the bench and big Sami coaching the reserves and youth. Full backs are sorted with young Darby and Millie Insua firming up nicely to support Arbeloa and Aurelio. Midfield is also sorted. Spearing is progressing well and there is no need or place for Gareth Barry. Striker is a different kettle of fish. Nemeth looks like he'll be away on loan to gain more experience against better defenders than in the reserves. Ngog may also be a loan candidate. Pacheco is still a bit physically weak. Brouwer is a no–show. Depending on how Lindfield performs on loan, he may be brought back as reserve striker. Alternatively (much as it sickens me) we may see the return of Michael 'Turn–Coat' Owen to warm the bench. Rafa has neutral feelings about this but some of the players (probably Stevie 'G' and Jamie 'C') are pushing. And that guys & gals, is that. Forget the nonsense of Aguerro, Villa etc.
  Regarding Carlos Tevez. The other posters are correct in that he is owned by Kia and is only on loan to Man Utd. When his loan expires in the summer Man Utd only have the option to buy him. The rules regarding the loaning of 3rd party owned players has changed. Man Utd can not extend his loan and noone else can loan him. If he is not bought outright from MSI in the summer by someone then he will not be playing at all.
  To the bloke that posted this. ."I love this site and have posted some rumours before and will do so again in the future but please, some of you on here just make the stuff up! And also the spelling is terrible by some people aswell! Did you not go to school. If only some of you put as much effort in trying to spell correctly as you do making up the rumours that don't make sense, we may be able to read what you have posted!!!"

1) aswell is not a word, and 2) if you ask a question, like "Did you not go to school." You need to end it with a question mark – ?

So, "Mr. Grammar", did you go to school aswell.

West Ham to sign the following this summer:
Pogatetz, Hoyte, and Johnson from Boro
Pederson and Santa Cruz from Blackburn
Martins and Gutiérrez from Newcastle
Francesco Pigano – Cagliari
  Season 2009/2010 Transfer Targets:
Diogo Luis Santo(Olympiacos) £10–15m → Liverpool/Arsenal or Chelsea

Vassilis Torosidis(Olympiacos) £2.5–5m → Blacburn/Newcastle or Wigan

Kyriakos Papadopoulos(Olympiacos) £2.5–5m → Man.U

Luciano Galleti (Olympiacos) £5m → Chelsea or Juventus/Barcelona

Avraam Papadopoulos (Olympiacos) £2–2.5m Various EPL
  Greek sources suggest Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is keen to bring 2 teenagers at London in the summer.
Sotiris Ninis(Panathinaikos)/age:19 MF
Nikolaos Karelis (Ergotelis) age: 17 FW

West Ham United are supposedly interested in 22 years old Panathinaikos defender Bryce Moon,who is rated at £1M.

Georgios Samaras and Georgios Efrem age:20 MF maybe swap from the SPL to the EPL.Various Clubs such as Fulham,Bolton, are interested in both and Middlesbrough ,Reading are keen on Rangers Starlet.

Both AEK Athens F.C. Teenagers are targets for the london clubs.
Michalis Pavlis age:19 FW
El Hadji Diouf age:20 MF

Simão Mate Junior age:20 DF–MF ,Lazaros Christodoulopoulos age:22 MF (Panathinaikos) and Stefanos Athanasiadis age:20 FW(PAOK FC)also linked with a possibly move to EPL/SPL.
  Mr.T i don't know who your mint contact is but they know nothing lewis buxton going to leeds from stoke im sure he signed a 2 year deal at sheffield wednesday earlier this season.
  To the guy that said about the youth at ibrox lol. you aint a rangers fan are you or you would know we signed efrem from arsenal two seasons ago lol.
  Have it on good authority that Everton are going to make a bid for Adam Johnson and Bernard Mendy this summer. Moyes is keen to reinforce the flanks so Arteta can stay in the middle of the park and work his magic. Would be 2 good signings.
  Ive just heard preston north end are to make one last loan move before the deadline, bringing in the pacey man united foward Danny Welbeck
  Rangers are having a clear out in summer and players will move on. This is partly to do with finances but mainly to do with the fact there is no reserve league in Scotland next year so not as many players required. expect Hemdani, Dailly, Gow, Adam, Velicka, Webster, G Smith, S Smith, Beasley and McCulloch. This will free up a reasonable amount of wages but will generate very little in transfer fees, 2 million most.

With the managers position at Ibrox under threat no decision has been made on first team players leaving or signing so please stop posting ridiculous rumours. Players coming in will as ever depend on Rangers winning the league as does Walters and Allys job. However I can confirm that a short list of future managers has been drawn up and is as follows 1) Moyes 2) Levein and that's it.
