Roman Abramovich has emerged as a key figure in the transfer saga of Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid hope to complete the move by the middle of July for 80 million and then will immediately sell Robinho to Chelsea for a generous 50 million thus giving them a net outlay of just 30 million. That is right, Abramovich will make it possible for Real to sign Ronaldo for just £20 million, that is a steal. The operation was agreed earlier this week in a meeting between the Real president Calderon and executives at Banco Santander. The reason Abramovich will assist the transfer is obvious as it will weaken a rival, Fergie will be furious.

  Moyes to Move On

When Quiroz leaves Man Ure Moyes will become SAFs #2 at OT and take over the reigns when he retires.

This will happen this Summer as Moyes is fed up with the bull from liars that are in charge of the Toffees and the lack of support for improving the team.

  Theres a lot of hit and hope on this website.

Celtic and Rangers fans. I have never known anything like it.

As for Liverpool fans, your team is not Spain.

Definate possibilities –

Anton Ferdinand to Tottenham (£4 million)

Samir Nasri to Arsenal (£15 million)

Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid (who knows? )

Alex Hleb to FC Barcelona (£13.5 million)

Gareth Barry to Liverpool (£14 million)

Ronaldinho to Ac Milan (£18 million)

Frank Lampard + Didier Drogba to Internazionale (£25–30 million)

David Bentley to Liverpool (part ex w/Pennant)

Andrei Arshavin to Arsenal (£10 million)

Bernard Mendy to Hull City (free)

Andrew Johnson to the Hammers (£9 million)

Manuel Fernandes to Everton (loan w/agreed fee of £8 million)

Rafael van der Vaart to Man United or Chelsea (£17 million)

Deco to Chelsea or Internazionale (£8–10 million)

Engelaar to HSV (£6 million)

Aaron Lennon to Aston Villa (£7 million)

DD first.

  Nasri is very close to signing a four year deal at Arsenal. It is inevitable and very close and will be done any day now. Those fellows who say Chelsea will get him, dude get a life, Chelsea have Scolari as coach and he is not particularly fond of the French players. So Nasri is definitely ours. Ramsey has already signed, although he will not be getting first team games anytime often, he's one for the future. He can be a long term replacement for Flamini, who has left Milan only for money. Hleb is on the verge of leaving, Adebayor is also slowly being poisoned in the money factor. But our left back Clichy has justified our faith in him by signing a 4–year deal. So as I see it, Nasri is a readymade replacement for Hleb, he's not a conventional winger and is younger and arguably better than Hleb. If Ade goes, that also for a big 24–25 million, then we have a lot of money in our hands. Wenger will use this money to buy a better replacement for him. Hes looking at Arshavin, Villa and Santa Cruz. But all three have some problem. Arshavin wants to play for Spain, Villa has many clubs chasing him although he said he wants to play for Arsenal, and Paul Ince is very adamant about Santa Cruz going. That leaves a defensive midfielder, who is probably going to be Yaya Toure if Hleb leaving in a sort of switch. Wenger has looked at Veloso, but he is too overpriced. The rumour that Ben Arfa is coming is also false, as he signed for Marseille few days ago. So altogether, our signings this Summer will be Ramsey (already done), Nasri, Yaya Toure or Veloso, Arshavin/Villa/Santa Cruz, and maybe Given. The interest in Arda Turan remains minimal. And going will be Flamini (already gone), Hleb and Ade

  incredible exclusive

Reports eminating from the Camp Nou claim that an astonishing double swoop is to take place by Rafa Benitez. Forget Villa, Silva and the likes.

Spanish sources close to the Anfield club have suggested that a bid of £33 million has been laid down for the services of Eto'o and Ronaldinho. No one could have fortold, but it seems Benitez has been a big admirer and is willing to break the bank for FC Barcelona pair. If FC Barcelona agree, (and it's not out of the question as they have both been told their services are not required anymore) this would be a serious coup and loud battle cry from the Merseysiders in the Hunt for that first Premier League title.

Reports also conform that the two have been invited to Liverpool's first pre–season friendly against Tranmere on July 12th.

  One of my friends is very good mates with xabi Alonso and he is 100 hundred per cent signing 4 Juve. Fact. And David Silva is top of list 4 Rafa and he will sign for £17 million. Fact. And he also said Torres has asked Rafa to sign David Villa and Rafa has more or less said that the deal is nearly done for him but everyone denying it at the moment so Chelsea do not come in and blow Liverpool's bid out the water. fact And I am a blue so would not waste my time writin rubbish.

  One of my best mate who is also a good friend of Gerrard's girlfriend told me that Rafa is trying hard to have both Silva and Villa at Liverpool this Summer. Rafa has the backing of the chairman and the American owners and funds will be made available for the Spanish stars. But the deal can only be done after EURO. Expect Alonso to stay should Liverpool fail to sign Barry. Bentley is not coming to Liverpool. The player that speak English but not an Englishman is none of the above. I will leave this one a surprise for the Liverpool fans coming July. HE is a really good (forward) player. watch out

  Forest rumours,

Forest could not agree a fee with Coventry for Leon Best, Coventry want £2 million. Forest only willing to pay £1.5 million. Whittingham staying at Cardiff. These are now the two rumours coming out the CG.


Helguson (Bolton) £1.5 million

Oster (Reading) Free

  ''I have also seen Pavel Nedved at Glasgow airport coming back from holiday. but what does that mean? ''. it mean nothing mate, Earnshaw and Andy Cole were seen in Norwich but we are not getting them (possibly cole). a definite for City is Rangers Gow. ON THE BALL CITY

  To the fella that said Trundle will be moving to Everton for £10 million to replace Andy Johnson. You must be a red. Never heard so much flannel in my life. And since when was Birmingham Johnson's home City? He's a cockerney you quilt.

Real Everton rumours: –

Yobo to Arsenal

Huddlestone and Jenas from Tottenham

Downing from Boro

an experienced keeper on loan/on a free

  100 HUNDRED PER CENT LIVERPOOL INS AND OUTS: My friend works very close to one o the top men at Lfc and has told me these are deals Lfc pushing through.


David Villa £20–25 million

David Sila £17 million

Gareth Barry £15 million

Dossena £7 million (done

Degen Free (done)

Anti Niemi £500,000


Crouch £12 million Villa/Pompey/Arsenal

Intandje £500,000 St. etienne

Kewell released

Voronin £2 million If offers come in

  Darren Huckerby is on the move to Plymouth. I know this beacause my mate Dad works at argyle and he told me. Huckerby was at Plymouth on Tuesday. no lie

  Hearts could start pre–season WITHOUT a manager, caretaker headcoach Stevie frail has been told to stay away from there riccarton base. the laughable managerial saga/merrygoround will not be solved any time soon as eccentric owner vladimir Romanov will not gauruntee full power of team selection and signings to the next man in charge. vlad is now selling what little assets the edinburgh side have left in his cost cutting exercises.

high earners to be shown the door are

Christophe berra– Wolves 1.75 million

Jose goncAlves– bundesliga £1 million

Christian nade–championship 0.5 million

laryea kingston– £1 million

the money recuperated from these deals will not go back into signings for the first team but simply to balance the books of the debt ridden club, hard times ahead.

  Vincent Pericard will be Nigel Pearson's first signing for Leicester.

  Heres how it is people:

Arsenal will sign santa cruz from Blackburn for around £11 million, Nasri is nearly completed for £15 million from Marseille, Toure will come as part of the Hleb deal, Arsharvin will sign for around £10 million to replace Hleb and lastly Wenger is lookinmg to bring in a replacement for Flamini, this being frings for £8 million.

Going out of Arsenal will be Hleb for £6 million + Toure to FC Barcelona, Adebayor £28 millionm AC Milan, Flamini and Lehmann already gone as we know, Gilberto to Juve for £4 million, expect to see Traore and Diaby go out on loan, Traore to Watford and Diaby to Sunderland.

its going to be a good year for the gooners.

  FC Barcelona will be replacing departing trio Eto'o, Ronaldinho and Deco with Arshavin, Villa or Adebayor and David Silva or Bastian Schweinsteiger. New head coach Guaridiola is also keen about Franck Ribery and Villareal's Nihat Kahveci although the latter is not interested in a move as Messi, Krkic and then Henry are first choice forwards. Dani Guiza is also a target.

Eidur Gudjohnson will also be on the names departing the club while Henry will still re–consider his future.

= v1=

  I have just drove past Carrow Road and see Dickson Etuhu standing outside the main entrance with Neil Doncaster. Sipa Man NCfc

  To the person who said Rossi from Man United. to Rangers on loan, what Rossi are you on about? giuseppe Rossi joined Villarreal last Summer and I no of no other rossis at man u?

andy Johnson bid accepted from villa, but whether he will go there is uncertain as he is a former blue nose

the Hammers and Newcastle will not be signing any big name players, as neither are good enough to attract that kind of player

Sidwell will be told he is not part of scolaris plans, I mean with all the money hell get would you keep him? so he is joining Villa as soon as these talks are over, also Paul Robinson (Tottenham) likely to join

Peter Crouch will go to Pompey for 10 million, milner to Liverpool in exchange for Pennant + 4 million, Adebayor will go to AC Milan, so pavlyuchenko will go to Arsenal, with Nasri also joining, Stoke to sign anthony Gardner, andrei arshavin will be chased by a host of English clubs but will join the new look FC Barcelona team as it is his dream to do so, Van Der Vaart to Man United, engelaar to Tottenham, Deco to join Chelsea

  I would like to point out some "accurate" NUfc rumours.


Arda 9 mill

pablo aimar 5.5 mill

zherkov 5 mill

swp 11 mil

van de vart £12 million (not likely, but is still a target)

one of many forwards linked is the young swiss international derdiyok, this is the most likely to happen for the fee of around 4. 5 – 6 mill


emre £3 million (8 million do not be stupid)

Carr free

milner 8 mill

  Liverpool's posibilities

ibrahimh afellay (6 million+ vorinin)

silva (17 million Rafas close links at Valencia)

villa (50–50if we buy any big name forwards it will be him. if goes to England will go to us)

sweinstieger (not many games at Bayern)

degen (done)

dossena (done)

barry (16 million last bid)

lucho gonzales (8 million if we do not get barry)

hamit altintop (hard worker that Rafa like's)

van der vart (very unlikely)

behrami (unlikey limited talent)

pavleucheko (50–50)

  Man United will not sell Ronaldo just yet as calderon was quoted as saying Madrid would never pay 80 million for one player.

United will not buy Huntelaar but will get santa cruz (now that Mark Hughes has left Blackburn) and also Van Der Vaart for around £13 million. benzema is also still on the radar but this deal is growing more and more unlikely.

finally someone said pavluchenko will sign for Newcastle from LOKOMOTIV moscow. obviously this is not true as he does in fact play for SPARTAK moscow.

Everton may well sign Lee trundle but not for £10 million. Moyes is well known for not spending silly money on any player.
