Football Rumours Archive March 28 2007


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.


Firstly to all the people saying Liverpool won't have money to spend are dreaming because Liverpool wouldn't of accepted to takeover if they didn't have financial backing!Liverpool will mainly invest in youth with Spanish young players been the majority including Dos Santos and niguez bein main targets!you will see Liverpool invest in two new strikers and wingers and a new rb. Alves and Richards bein targets bth will cost alot as they bth in demand so which ever they et they will have to spend. queresma, manici and Nani bein linked to help Liverpool to have sum width. strikers is a difficult one becoz there is so many names bein mentioned hwever there is rumours that Villa has been seen at Melwood for a third tym. villa has exspressd his desire to play for Liverpool and this is a big bonus for benitez. other names eto, bojinov, trez, Torres, iquinta and many more!future bright future red Jordano

Man Utd to sign Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham for 26million as SAF knows he can play well in the premierhip and would not want to waste money on Torres who could be a big flop. We will also sign Diego of Werder Bremen or Sergio Aguero of Athletico Madrid both could be around 23million. A skillful winger will come most probably Nani 12million although Quaresma could come as he is stronger and more adapted to English football 14million. A defensive midfielder will definitely come almost certain to be Owen Hargreaves although if anoth bid fails expect a offer of 18million to be made to Madrid for Diarra. A late bid will be for Daniel Alves if Liverpool fail in secureing him 14million.

Utd Team Next Season:

GK:Foster, Kzubecauseak (spelling)

RB:Alves, Neville

CB:Ferdinand, Vidic, Pique, Brown

LB:Evra, Heinze

RM:Ronaldo, Park

CDM:Diarra, Hargreaves

CM:Carrick, Fletcher

CAM:Aguero, Diego

LM:Nani, Quaresma

ST:Rooney, Berbatov, Saha, Solksjaer

Word up folks, this is the truth coming to the masses from Newcastle.

More whispers are circulating in St James' Park of an impending offer coming in from SAF at Man Utd for the Dark Destroyer that is Obi Martens. He has adapted to English football quickly and is scoring well in a below parr team. So wait for the transfer to happen, approx ten million quids worth plus O'Shea and Silvestre.

Also, 'He's big, he's red and his feet stick out the bed, Peter Crouch' is a main target for the Mags as he is seen as the ideal partner for Micky O.

I know this as I have my ear to the ground and my eyes open at all times. plus my missus works in the office at SJP like and she hears things on the Q-T

Possible Man Utd transfers:


Trezeguet: £6m - Doubtful as he wants to finish his contract with Juve

Suazo: £10-13. 5m - Would prefer to move to Inter, thus paving the way for another potential arrival.

Adriano: £22m - A big name and a striker of the 20+ goals standard, a far more attractive option than Torres (whom I believe would stuggle in England. Expect competion from Barcelona, AC Milan and Liverpool for his signature if a bid is lodged

Huntelaar: £10m - Cheaper than Adriano and has a very bright fiture.

Tevez: £8-9m - A class act, Man Utd fan and perhaps should've been signed lat summer. He'd prefer to stay at West Ham but will be sold when relegated

Expect 1, or possibly 2 to sign. Namely Huntelaar and Tevez


Sneijder: £12m - A definite target, every big club in Europe will bid for him, so it'll be down to him where he goes

Nani: £12m - still a possibility, but doubtful he'll arrive as his talent doesn't justify the spend on a player that will take 3 years to start coming good (much like Ronaldo)

Malouda: £15m - Was a target when we were going to buy Essien, but after Chelsea bought him the club knew they'd be held to ransom. Arsenal and Juventus will join the race to sign him also

Hargreaves: A no-brainer, all that remains is to agree a fee.


Heitinga: £6m - doubtful as Ajax would be loathe to lose so many of their key players in one summer

Pique (loan return) - Will be given his chance as his perfomances in Spain have been very assured


Fletcher £3.5-4m, Silvestre £3m, Brown £4. 5m. these players have been at the club for a great deal of time and have been great servants, but the squad needs freshening up in every area to maintain momentum for next season. Foster will not be going anywhere on loan, its been well docuymented in the press that he's coming back to compete with Edwin for a place, Fergie knows what he's doing as he had a problem with understudies when Schmeichel left and Van Der Gouw was older than him. Sorry to pee on your bonfire Premiership fans, but England's new no. 1 will be at OT next season.

The lineup will look as follows:

GK: Van Der Sar/ Foster (will both play a lot of games)

LB: Evra

CB: Ferdinand, Vidic

RB: G. Neville/ Heitinga (this one's doubtful as stated)

DM: Hargreaves

CM: Scholes/ Sneijder, Carrick

LMF: Giggs/ Malouda


CF: Rooney/ Tevez, Adriano or Huntelaar

subs: Van Der Sar/ Foster, Heinze (will hopefully stay) O'Shea, Park, Smith, Rooney/ Tevez.

Rooney will play less games next season (maybe 10 or so), signs of burnout are starting to show, as the hack tabloids and stupid England fans keep on his back. He's only 21, leave the guy alone and let him develop his game.


I work on the London Stock Exchange and often hear of premilnary paperwork being filed for transfers that never even come off, this rumour however is nothing to do with that. Giles Barnes will join Tottenham Hotspur this summer, that is 100% true. Spurs will pay Derby around £5M beating off competition from Everton, Newcastle, Liverpool and Manchester City. I know this because I am good friends with the brother of Chris Riggot, formerly of the Rams. Barnes will go to Spurs as he is a fan and was born and raised in Hertfordshire, large parts of which are Tottenham strongholds.

I have also heard that Berbatov will be staying with the club, definitely for next season and in all likelehood beyond, Daniel Levy plans to offer him a £60k p/ w deal at the end of next season. Berbatov was quoted in a Russian rumours paper on Sunday saying that he has found his home at Spurs, that he loves the fans, beleives the club has enormous potential and has made a lot of really good friends within the playing staff. His aget is also quoted as saying that Berbs is more than happy and has no desire to leave. All the Liverpool and Man Utd fans pipe down and just accept that you have missed the boat. Dimitar would never join Man Yoo after Fergie didn't show the necessary faith in him when he was replacing Ruud and Liverpool just don't have the cash to do the deal, this Takeover thing is smoke and mirrors, it is seen as a business opportunity, not a Chelski style dream. Stick to your Sahas, Kuyts, Bellamys and Morientes lads, your going to be overtaken in the next 3 or 4 years as the mighty whites rise up

Sheffield Wednesday are set to sell Simek in a straight swap plus cash for Everton keeper Iain Turner this summer, with Chris Brunt going to Man City for 2mill.

Steve Kabba set to join the Owls from Watford for 250k

I have heard a rumour from an Australian based player who was involved in the China game. Apparently Mark Bresciano will be playing next season with Spanish club Seville

Harry Kewell, leaving Liverpool to head to Tottenham, for 8million. Injurys may be a concern. But a good pick for his age

There are many rumours surrounding the Gers at the moment, Smith will recieve FULL backing by Murray this summer to add QUALITY. There is a good nucleus already of an above average squad and with key quality additions to the numbers will challenge Celtic all the way.

Celtic will not be paying stupid money for anyone of mediocre class. so no £7m for Bellamy. we will get Scott Mcdonald from Motherwell for around 750k, he will not be going to Rangers. wgs will also look at other emerging Scottish talent anf from within his own reserves/ youth set up before he makes any real money signings but Sidwell remains a real possible as no fee involved. probable outs will include, Lennon/ Gravesen/ balde/ telfer/ Marshall/ Beattie with the likelihood of Miller joining them as he has failed to score the goals despite his work ethic, Mcdonald the replacemnet here. hail hail

Kevin Blackwell is set to sign Jermaine Easter for Luton Town in the summer if they stay up. Also on his shopping list is Sean Gregan, Steve Kabba, Kevin Nicolls and Anthony Mcnamee.

Aston Villa roumours:- these deals are a 100% true.

ins; Sidwell, kone, Reo-Coker, Robbie Keane, Craig Gordan, Luke Varney and expect dica of romania to come in. outs;juan pablo angel, j l Samuel, Aaron Hughes, berger and Lee hendrie. trust me Villa to shock everyone and spend big this summer. (claffs army)








Bellamy or Keane









Beattie - loan

Celtic will also sign James McCarthy, Tomislav Pavlov, Marian Pop as well as 6/ 7 other youngsters there are about 20 due trials before the end of the season and 8/ 9 will be snapped up

Celtic will also sign Darren Barr for £600k from FalKirk but he'll go back to the 'Bairns' on loan next season. He is being bought to replace Stev Pressley for the 2008/ 2009 season

I have been talking to someone very high up at Crewe Alex and there is a youngster called Mark Triner which Arsenal like the look of he has a trial at the Emirates soon and could soon be playing alongside theo Walcott and thierry if he impresses at Emirates! believe me this is true

Gilberto to move from Arsenal to Juve. Wenger will then move for Bodmer of Lille as his replacement in the defensive midfield role.

Aston Villa will not sell Sean Davies to Reading or anyone else, as we have no-one of that name on our books - if you mean Steven Davis, then he is also not for sale. At any rate Villa will sign Bardsley (permanent £2. 75m), Pique (season loan), one of either Defoe or Bellamy (Defoe is 1st choice) and Kim Kallstrom (around £8. 5m) .

And one more thing. we know AJ personally from his time at BCFC and he is very happy at Goodison with no plans to move unless Everton decide to cash in. so there.

Aston Villa to sign Slovan Bratislava Midfielder Martin Salka in the summer. A Big star in the making, lots of pace. will provide cover for Barry on the left


Birmingham are facing competition from Reading, Wigan and Fulham to sign Arsenal midfielder Fabrice Muamba, who has been on loan at St Andrews.

West Ham are going to have a big clear out whether they are relegated or manage to perform a miracle and stay up. The players AC is targeting are therefore players who could perform in the Premiership, but these players must be willing to play one season in the CCC. The work has already gone into a number of transfers as both Eggert and AC want to be proactive so as soon as the transfer window opens the transfers will begin. A list of possible ins and outs have been drawn up, and the coaching and scouting staff have been made aware of these for obvious reasons, they are;


Richardson (valued at 4m) + Dong Fangzhuo (Loan) for Tevez and 6mill for the Hammers transfer kitty. Fergie knows Richardson needs games and he wants to return to the Irons if he has to go anywhere, and Fangzhuo needs games in the English league and AC has spoken to Sir Alex and its been arranged as he has got alot of potential. The rumour about Solskjaer came about due to West Ham scouts watching a reserve game that Dong and Solskjaer were both playing in and got the papers got the wrong info! Other players coming in; Hughes (Cahrlton 1. 5mill) JL Samuel (free), Eastwood (3.5m), A new no 1 goalkeeper, scouts are out now looking at several options, Kazim-Richards to play right wing, Hooper (from Southend also - free) He is friends with Eastwood and has the potential to do good things, AC will give him a chance and he will help to settle Eastwood at his former club. He will play as a right winger though, and not as a forward. The last forward joining will be McLeod from MK Dons (1.4mill) . The rest of the sqaud will be made up from the existing players and youth team graduates.


Green, Caroll, Mears, Upson, Ferdinand, Konchesky, Reo Coker, Mullins, Etherington, Benayoun, Newton, Harewood, Kepa (return from loan), Tevez (Man Utd), Cole, Sheringham

Therefore the squad next season will be;

GKS: ? Walker, Stech

DF: Spector, Paintsil, Neill, Gabbidon, Collins, Davenport, Dailly, Tomkins, McCartney, JL Samuel

MF: Kazim-Richards, Hooper, Hughes, Bowyer, Noble, Quashie, Richardson, Boa-Morte, Reid

FW: Zamora, Ashton, Eastwood, Fangzhuo, Mcleod


Man Utd are trying 2 sign younger player so they are to buy Kerlon, anderson, garth Bale and apul warner


Arsenal to bring in the french this summer they will add Ribery, abidal, and malouda to their sqaud. also arsene will bring in two new keepers with vito manone as back up.

leaving will be song and some other youngsters who Wenger doesn't believe will make te grade.

Likely LFC 2007-08 season:


Riise-F. Aurelio




Kewell-M. Gonzalez



MAXI. R-Pennant-Luis Garcia



With all the new money in the Premiership this year will be the biggest ever for transfers. Most top clubs have got enough squad players now (esp Liverpool) so there'll be lots of one-off big money moves. Look out for Swp (£10m) and berbatov (£20m?) to Liverpool, Torres (£30m) to man United and Crouch (£15m) to Newcastle. Also, I have good reason to believe that man United are trying to cash in on Kirkland's awful form at Wigan with a cheeky £1m bid

Spurs to sign in the summer:

Davies 8 mil

d. bent 9 mil

nani 12.5 mil

Reo Coker 5 mil

to leave:

Gardner 2 mil

Murphy 1 mil

mido 4 mil

Routledge 1 mil

y p Lee 2. 5 mil.

this is not a rumour but a FACT

Arsenal youngsters Nacer Barazite and Fran Merida will join Spanish side Rayo Vallecano on a season long loan deal next season. The duo are very highly thought of at the Emirates and Arsene Wenger feels that a season of first team football could benefit their education as it has done this campaign with the likes of Nicklas Bendtner and Fabrice Muamba.
