Football Rumours Archive June 28 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Patrick Vieira. The former Arsenal skipper has turned down a move to Birmingham.
  Celtic to turn their attentions to Robert Lewandowski of Lech Poznań for arount £1.8m. Only 21 and has been scoring goals in all of the polish divions and in europe.

Also looking at Landon Donovan and Steven fletcher as the new strike force. Scott McDonald off to EPL fo £6m to fund the moves.

Still looking at Xabi Castillo for the LB berth. Only compensation to pay cause he's under 23. Mowbray to sign stewart from Hearts to bolster squad. Still looking to sign a "big name" tough tackling central midfielder
  Expect Tevez to sign with City in the next few days.

Also, expect Sergio "Kun" Aguero to sign for United as Atletico Madrid are strapped for cash and cannot match the salary United are offering Aguero.

If Mascherano leaves it will be for Barcelona not Real Madrid. Reason? Because he and Pellegrini didn't get along in the River Plate days. When he was a reserve, youth player. Note to point out Mascherano got his first international cap before he played an adult game for River Plate.

Karim Benzema is not going to leave Lyon this season, as Lyon will strive very hard to keep him. If Benzema leaves he is more likely to go to Arsenal than United.

Bojan from Barca is likely to move to Liverpool if the proposed move from Mascherano goes into fruition. Guardiola lost faith in Bojan not sure why as he is first class.

Samuel Eto is not going to leave to City, that is ridiculous, Eto is likely to leave in switch plus 30M for Ibrahimovic but Moratti already has pretty much closed down those negotiations.

Javier Pastore from Huracan in Argentina is likely to move to Manchester United he is the revelation of the Argentine tournament and is first class at 19 for a midfielder he scores and passes very well and is very decisive 9 or 10 goals this season. For 19M. He is owned by an investment group so negotiations are not the kind United and Alex like but the player has been watched by United since the beginning of the Argentine season.
  To the guy who wrote:
"To the dude who has tried to find out those 3 linked with United from my previous post–

you are absolute correct on identifying the first two mates. .but the last one is not Michael Essien. .
Heres another hint for you (may be this will make it far more easier)

1. United are also chasing a Monster midfielder who plays in the premier league and who wears blue shirts and who has an 'afro' hair cut. . :)"

I'm not the same guy, but i believe you are talking about fellaini.

HENRY IS COMING BACK!! It's true , cesc is going the other way and adebayor looks set to join AC Milan. The return of henry means arsenal may be able to sustain a challenge and getting rid of 2 players who think they are a lot better than they are they will be much better. Hats off to Arsene if this all ahppens.
  I saw Keiren Westwood leaving the City Ground, Nottingham today. I asked him why he is in Nottingham and he said he's here to agree a deal with Forest as he feels the club has more ambition than Coventry. You heard it here first. .
  North West rumours:

Tranmere to take Craig Linfield on loan from Liverpool.
Preston players to follow manager Alan Irvine to WBA will be Sean St.Ledger and Andrew Lonergan for a combined £4m. However they will probably sign Blackpool's Shaun Barker and Blackburn's Jason Brown to replace them.
Blackpool will take Andy Caroll on 6 month loan from Newcastle.

Benzema–28mil euros
Aguero – 32 mil euros
David Villa 40 mil euros

As Hargreaves is back no midfielder will be signed

Ledley – 4 mill rising to 5
  I know I'm a big head and get to known things first hand off Simon and he as told me Adam of Rangers will sign on at Oakwell this next week for £1.2mil.
Barnsley Boy.
  Liverpool FC.

Xabi Alonso is set to leave anfield within the next two weeks for a fee of around €25m. Destination Madrid.

Rafa will use part of this money to sign Aaron Lennon and Downing.

Michael Owen will return to the club this summer, as both Carra and Gerrard have urged the gaffer to resign the injury prone striker. However, his contract will be a pay as you play type deal.
  Posted at 03:20 am on the 28th June. Im a Liverpool cabbie who has just returned home from tonights shift. Interestingly there was a rumour going around the taxi network tonight that Samual Eto had arrived at Liverpool Airport at around 02:00 am. It came through on the radio that a few cabbies outside the airport waiting for fares all seen him.

Also was told by a few people that Kasper Schmeichel was due to sign for Liverpool after the Johnson deal was done.
  Things have moved on since my last post, Filipe Melo is interested in speaking to Arsenal once he returns from holiday but his club have increaced his price due to recent performances and interest from other clubs fee might now reach 18 million pounds with additions.Sakho is also considering a number of options one of which includes Arsenal i feel this is likely to happen. Hangeland though proven is too expensive at 15 million and Sakho has more pace expect Gallas to be part of this deal. Another name linked Has been Karim Benzema only if we sell Ade and fail to land Huntelaar would we enter this race and even then just to try and up the price for other clubs involved. A more interesting target is Chamakh who is unpolished and just right for the Wenger touch again this is likely. Right the most important target for Arsene is Eden Hazard who he feels will be a more important world player than Ronaldo in a few short years he is determined not to miss out this time. Expect also to see the emergence of Carlos Vela this season the boy is class.

Bangkok Gooner

ok, i would like to straighten out some crap about everton transfers i've seen on here

Moysey is on holiday
Moyes has full control over all transfer policies
Moyes left instructions for certain clubs to be contacted to feel out interest, get a asking price for etc
all this bs about everton buying so and so, having made a bid for so and so, sorry, all bs, everton have made no offer for any player, and all transfer activity will begin from tuesday when he returns to work
and in response to are avid villa dreamer, efc never spend outside are limits, run at a (small) profit and have 0 debt
budget for this season is 15mil from prize money, but that takes into account all incoming wages as well, and any increase due to contract negotiations

so, finally, possible everton ins

1 big spend, moyes feels flam proved his policy last season right
rest of the deals will either be buying to replace if were forced into selling, and then are usually brigad of free deals and loans
Celtic FC News
Have a good source telling me Celtic have missed out on signing Fortune so will go for Fletcher for around 3–3.5m. I think Xabier Castillo and Juan Arango will come also Castillo on a bosman and 4m for Arango. Will Celtic fans stop coming on and suggesting people they want like Eduardo, he will be a key player for Arsenal next season hes not gonna come to Celtic.
Celtic to bring the title back home, Mon the hoops.
Aldsy Bhoy!

Hull are interested in signing Newcastle's Danny Guthrie with Geovanni possibly going in the other direction. Trust me this will happen. My mate Tristan who works at Hull told me
  Looks like Arbeloa will leave Liverpool the club is one of 3 which I assume Arbeloa will pick. Wont buy cover as we have Stephen Darby which also staisfies the CL qouta will help his development and saves us spending money on someone who might not be given a squad number. I have read that Dossena might not be going due to Aurellios knee injury don't see why not I wouldn't play him even if insua got injured, Chris Buchtmann would be better. Or even darby as played for ressies last year. We will sign a creative attacking midfielder who don't know so not gonna start talking rubbish like most people. Think Silva is too light weight. Maxi Rodriquez would be good option. What about Joe Cole?? Reckon Voronin will stay as could be a decent enough back up to Torres. No rumours just common sense kind of
  Manchaster Uniteds youngster Daniel Galbraith definitely signing for Hibs Its a done deal !
  Just come back from shopping in sunderland and saw anton ferdinand with patrick vierra. Is he going to be the first big signing?
  Steve Bruce will this week sign long term target Peter Crouch along with free agent Michael Owen.
He has bids in for Arron Lennon and Adam Johnson and expects to land them both.

In defence, Bruce will sign Sebastien Bassong and a rignt back from Spain I have unable to get the name of from my source.

This will not be the end of his shopping spree as he wants at least two central midfielders.
The next couple of weeks will be very interesting and exciting for all Sunderland fans.

A few surprises coming not just for fans of Sunderland, but for football fans everywhere.
  More fairy stories being forwarded by people definitley on the wacky backy!
Lerner & Perez friends/business associates doing a deal to bring Drenthe, Diarra x 2, VDVaart, Huntelar all to Villa Park. Get real or let me have the recipe cause mine doesn't come up to yours. I am Villa to the core but when Enid Blyton starts posting on here I give up. Villa fans one and all, rumours not dreams. We have all had our dreams minimised this past season and look forward with hope, not fantasy
