Football Rumours Archive August 29 2008


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

With Ben Watson set to sign for QPR, Forest will turn their attention to Alan Gow before the window closes. The scottish player is highly thought of by Calderwood.

Also expect another attempt for Whittingham from Cardiff and Clemence from Birmingham.You heard it from the Main Man Dan
  Wolves now after Antony Gerrard from Walsall now that he has handed in a transfer request, should be ours by the end of the week, still also looking at Danny Higginbottom, as our defence needs reinforcing quickly. Come on super Mick you know it makes sense
  Barcelona have arranged a straight swap in January for Villa with Eto'o going the other way. All dependant on Valencia's league postion at christmas as Eto'o won't go to get relegated.
Villareal want to replace Real bound Cazorla with Everton's Arteta and Liverpool trying to arrange cash plus player deal for Aguero in January. Alonso and Arbeloa to go plus £15 million.
  AC to flog Gilardino to Bayern Munich in January, he is known in Italy as being the biggest waste of money ever. They want to replace him with German goal machine Mario Gomez. You heard it here first.
  West Brom are looking to sign Stoke's unsettled centre half Ryan Shawcross and Voronin from Liverpool
  LFC Rumours

The sell on clause for Alosno is 16 million Euro or approx £12.75 million. Below this Liverpool pay 6 million euro or approx £4.75 million. Above this they pay 20%. So if Alosno goes to Arsenal for £14 million the sell on clause is only £2.8 million.

Genuine Scouser
  nottingham forest will not make any more signings this summer, with lee martin making his deal permanent in january, they will probably take another goalkeeper on loan, with kasper schmeicals name still being thrown around.

Newcastle ar close to signing kezman and james milner does not want to leave, he just wants a bigger contract. Real madrid will sign Gabriel Agbonlahor as a replacement for Robinho.
  Man Utd had there team photo taken today then flew off to Monaco for the super cup final!
The significance off this is that Manucho was in the team photo,and has been granted his Work permit!

So therefore highly unlikely Man Utd will be signing Berbatov in this transfer window. . . .

Looks like Berba will be rotting in the reserves until January,and Man Utd will get him for about 10 million!!

KungFuCantona. . . . . . .
  Saha to Sunderland by the end of the week if Man U manage to buy another striker!!
  To the guy who said: Victor Obinna loan to everton does not have a permanent view is wrong.

In Italy a lot of players have 50% owner agreements. Inter Milan paid the money for him to go to Cheivo for 50% ownership. Cheivo had to let him go to Inter as part of the agreement but Obinna did not feature in Mourinho plans so was subsequently snatched up by Everton on loan. YES. WITH A VEIW TO A PERMANENT DEAL.
  Nugent and Ameobi to ITFC Haynes going to Pompey plus Reid WEST HAM or Johnson M'boro watch this space
  I live close to anfield liverpool will sign rafinha for the right back slot. blackburn are giving a medical to pennant tomorrow

u heard it here first
  Can I just clear something up for people please? Arsenal will more than likely not sign Xabi Alonso this year because he will not be eligible for the Champion's League for THE WHOLE SEASON, and not just ineligible just for the group stages. This quote below is taken directly from UEFA's website –

" Rule 17.07 Excluding the three rounds of the UEFA Intertoto Cup and the UEFA Super
Cup, and subject to paragraph 17.18 below, a player may not play UEFA
club competition matches for more than one competing club in the course of
the same season. A substitute player who is not fielded is entitled to play for
another club competing in the same seasonís UEFA club competitions,
provided that he is registered with the UEFA administration in accordance
with the present Regulations. And

17.18 One player from the above quota of three who has played UEFA club
competition matches for another competing club in the current season may
exceptionally be registered, provided that the player has not been fielded:
− in the same competition for another club
− for another club that is currently in the same competition."

The only reason Barry would possibly have signed for either us or Arsenal is because he is in a different competition, the UEFA cup.If Wenger is buying solely for the League and other English trophies then that's fine,and he may sign Alonso, but it's definitely not for the Champion's League this season! If he wants a player for the English cups and the knockout stages of the Champions League, it will have to be Barry. Hope that's cleared things up for everyone! :o)

Now the rumours for us are that Pennant is off to Newcastle as part of an exchange for Milner, Voronin is off to Hamburg and Itandje is off to a Turkish club, but these might change at the last minute. Other than Milner, we are signing Riera, and that's us done for this window. How people possibly know what is going to happen in January or next summer is beyond me. No–one I know knows exactly what is going to happen in the next 4 days, and one of my mates works at Anfield!!
