Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Torres is unhappy in spain and will either sign with Man u or the Gunners. Scottish youngster Stephen Donald will go back to Watford from Glasgow Rangers. The trial did not work out under Le Guen. Apparently Elton John has had some say in the matter.

English under 21 international Marcus thompson will go back to Wrexham from Spurs to get regular footballExpect Jurgen to commit later this week as the new USA International Manager. that's all for now.- - - - -

Right, Rangers fans you have no more than 3 million to spend and your only likely to sell rickesen, so you will have 4 million maximum and that means no thomoson or scotbrown but your lot will probably get naismith, russell anderson and Elvis and maybe some french rent boys.

Christiano Bolanos

James Beatie

Freddy Eastwood

and 2 of Koreas national players whos names im afraid I can't remeber

And rumour has it that Inter Milan, Pompey and Hamburg are all after Darren Bent. .willing to pay as much as 13 million!Juventus News!#$@$

To the bloke who said that arsenal are gonna sign Buffon are you mentally retarted? We don't owe them 12 million for viera we owe them half of that cuase we payed them $6 and we will give them the other 6 in summer and seeing that Juve will move back to serie a Buffon won't want to move and he's a mamma's boy so he will stay in italy. Juve need 1 or 2 cdms and they will come in the form of De rossi $20mil plus, Maecsherano spelling? for either $15 or $20 and we might bid for a striker if we have the cash to splash to replace the classy yet ageing Del Piero most likely an italian striker or an import Di Michele $10 mil, or Hunteelar $15 mil,Cassano $20 mil and maybe even Tevez for $15 to join Maescherano. Tevez will be good cuase he is suited to the italian gameLFC NEWS

In January/Summer 07, Rafa will ring the changes. Out will be - alonso (so gerrard can stay in middle partnering sissoko, an freeing up lots of transfer money), Reina (too dodgy), hyypia (retire), Zenden, Fowler (retire), diao, cisse & le tallec. In will be - Richards/alves -RB, Lennon -RM, van der vaart -LM.

Line-up will be as follows: -


Richards/alves Agger Carra Riise

Lennon Sissoko Gerrard Van Der Vaart

Kuyt Bellemy

Subs - Dudek, Warnock, Crouch, Pennent & garciaThank God that someone actually knows United - thank you for telling people about our agreement with Lisbon and Nani.

However, on the transfer front we aren't going to spend big over January. Fergie doesn't like making big signings half way through a season(apart from andy cole). I can't see Torres or Hargreaves joining in January. I think it will be someone from the premier league who doesn't need much time to adjust - therefore I expect (unfortunately) Defoe. And there maybe a very cheeky (and unsuccessful) bid for Shaun Wright-Phillips.Why would west ham sign 3 right-wingers in January as one idiot suggested yesterday. And to the guy who seemed to suggest sheff utd have £10m to spend, don't you think warnock would have spent a little of that in the summer? Also a note to all the people who come on and say people are moving in part-ex. deals, why do you persist when they never occur in high profile transfers? Thanks to all the people who give genuine rumours, its a great way to spend your day at work. Anyway, I have a mate who works for a national newspaper and he has it on good authority Tim Cahill is moving to Man Utd next summer for some vast sum to replace Scholes who intends to retire in Summer 08. Fergie is happy with Carrick and wants him to hold whilst Cahill has freedom to attack and score. I am not a hopeful Man U fan flapping my gums, far from it. I suuport a championship side so believe it, its trueDefoe and Keane will NOT be joining Villa,Newcastle,Celtic etc.

They would only consider leaving Tottenham for a team in the top 4 as this would be considered furthering their career.Teams like Villa would be a step back for them.They have years left on their contracts,Spurs are a rich club and never need to sell anyone,so the silly Villa fans who suggest Keane and Defoe are worth 6 million,keep dreaming,try doubling that each and you are close to their real value.

They would'nt get anymore games at the big 4 than they get at WHL so they will be staying.

Curits Davies will sign for Spurs,as wil Alnwick and Leonardo from Eredivisie.Thats all the january activity coming in at Spurs.

Lee Young Pyo will go,as will Gardener and Murphy.LFC News -

Despite all the romours, Liverpool will be very quiet on the transfer front on January - With Kewell coming back and several players still settling into the Liverpool 'way', Rafa will give the current squad a chance - But expect big moves in the summer if we do not at least claim 3rd in the league and a cup of some sort. Only two arrivals in Jan will be Lucas Neil (deal done) and Huntalaar (£8m plus Zenden).Rangers to sighn in jan

St-Sidney GovouIncredible site this! Kerlon for Rangers? Torres for Man UTD? Get a grip. You haven´t got a clue. The only thing that has been spot on recently is the guy who wrote about Rangers´ financial troubles. .spot on mate. the JJB deal hasn´t worked out and Le Guen does not have much money to spend. His budget was used to get rid of pool players pre-season. Obina (Flamengo, Brasil) is a target for Rangers.Heard that Celtic are targeting Huntelaar. There´s a queue of teams from the English League as well as Spain and the Bundesliga after this player so I doubt Celtic will get their man. He´s a top young player though. Two defenders will be brought in as Balde and Telfer are on way out (Jan and Summer respectively).Rangers will attempt to sign Scott Brown in January for £2.5m, Kevin Thomson has been stated as saying he wants to remain at Hibs so a bid is unlikely. Celtic looking to strengthen the defence with Matty Kilgallon or Garry Kenneth.Man Utd

First of all, I am not sharing rumours. I'll give you some of my ideas. They're only SPECULATIONS about realistic transfers in the future!

SAF want Hargreaves, deal about 17 million pound or 10 million + O'Shea

For GIGGS replacement: NANI from Sporting (ManUtd truly has a link with the club) or Stewart DOWNING , but Morten GAMST Pedersen move from Blackburn is more likely. They worth about 7-10 million pound per feet. Only in the summer transfer window.

For SCHOLES replacement:

There's a rumour about the arrives of Rafael van der VAART or Freddy ADU. Vaart would fit into the team easily, but ADU is NIKE's man so probably he will be bought. If it comes true he will go for a loan to another club to get experienced until Scholes' retirement.

Forward question: TORRES is also contracted to NIKE. So NIKE will probably push this deal to has 3 of his new men (Rooney, Ronaldo Torres) in one team concerning Nike Pro The secret weapon marketing. But, it is more likely to sign Huntelaar, because his playing style fit much more into the premier league. He'll be probably the new Nistelrooy.

It is very likely to Howard stay with the Toffees.

Silvestre will go to a spanish club in the next two years.Shaun Maloney will sign for Liverpool in January for £250K Celtic won't sign anyone in January. In The summer we will sign Huntelaar, Naismith, Thompson and Ryan NelsonSheffield United look certain to be the busiest Premiership club in January as Neil Warnock looks to avoid instant relegation. Tottenham full back Lee Young-pyo will join on a four month loan deal which could become permanent next summer if the Blades survive. West Ham striker Carlton Cole will sign on a two and a half year contract costing £750,000, and his current Hammers team mate Roy Carroll could join him at Bramall Lane if Paddy Kenny decides to move on with several clubs watching the Irish keeper.CELTIC DEFINATE SIGNINGS

Stokes - £500k

CELTIC POSSIBLE SIGNINGS (ones we've been linked with)

Burke -

Ray Jones - £250k - FREE in summerMan utd will sign show interest in a number of forwards in january including d.bent, j.defoe, chris boyd and obviosly torres. n.r.coker will be an option 4 mid as he is not a regular 4 westham and hargreaves but he will only move in the summer, gattuso could be a shock option.nani will not move as fergie is looking at up and coming players such as lennon ang ashely young as he is looking to keep a brittish backbone in the team.utd to win the league and the fa cup i don't fink they a ready 4 the champions league just yet.West brom are tryin to sign strikers david nugent and chris killen and freddy eastwood as kamara and ellington are likely to leave in january.Tottenham Rumour. This is not really a rumour more of guess work. Don't be surprised if Spurs make a bid for Wright-Phillips. Jol has been quoted several times saying how much he rates SWP and I can easily see him on one wing and Lennon down the other with them constently switching flanks.

Watch this space.Steven Gerrard is off to either real madrid or barcelona you will read all about his troubled private life in the next couple of weeks after the injunction has finished he has thrown his missus out and the second child is not his hence the drop in form this season feels he needs to get away from liverpoolYou may recall I posted over the summer about the early problems with Dowie at Charlton over his treatment of the senior players, particularly the foreign players. As I previously said, I work with the father of one of Charlton's senior players who told me that things started badly. I was worried and he has been proved right.

I asked if he knew anything about the departure of Dowie and the future for the team and he told me a few things. Firstly, Les Reed was not instrumental in ID's sacking. He agreed with the move but the biggest problem was with the players. When the review was carried out after the initial poor results, all but 5 players said that they had no faith in Dowie's methods and they found him arrogant and unhelpful. ID and Mark Robson were also poles apart in their methods. Dowie has had a very hard time accepting this and the CAFC board were concerned at what he would do at one stage. He was apparently quite agressive at times.

As for the future, Reed will be given unti February to turn the club's fortunes around. The players are happier but many feel the damage has been done - there is a bit of a split in the camp to some degree and there may be a lot of movement in January.

The really bad news is that Darren Bent is going. There have been tentative enquiries from Man U and Liverpool - unless we are clear of the relegation zone at the end of January, the club won't be able to afford to turn down a good bid (in the region of £12million)

I have to guys, things aren't looking good right now.RANGERS will not sign kaboul or Thomson in January as they are priced out of the market for an over-rated frenchman and Thomson will not get a game ahead of Clement, with Hemdani being good cover in that position. They will attempt to sign Anderson Brown Golouri and Naismith. This will cost 4.5 - 5m. Wages will be freed by the departues of Letizi Ricksen Rodriguez Bardsley Rae and Martin, bringing in 2 - 3m also. Rangers would never sell Ferguson he is just turned 28 and the best player in scotland and would be looking for close to 8m not 2.5m (laughing out very loud). With Prso and Novo leaving in the summer, Alan Smith is considered along with Diouf. My source also tells me that Burke had agreed on the deal offered, just wanted wait until January to sign when he was fit but because fans took it the wrong way, he will now sign within the week. 10k + 4k if 30 games played.Currently the best player outside the Premiership by a long way QPR winger Lee Cook will be sold in January. Possibly to Everton for £2.5m but Aston Villa have a far better offer of £3m up front and £1m if they qualify for Europe.Please becareful in paste the rumours. How can Kaka come to Man utd. Impossible! He wants to stay in Milan even the club have some regulations. His form their are best and he will become the legend of Milan. I think he will sign a four-year contact with AC. Micah Richards is the man that was been target for many months. He will choose those following club like Red Devil, Blues, Gunners, and Reds. Also he heard a news about chelsea was bidding for David Villa about 30m. Liverpool will try to get youngster from Argentina and British countries. Hunterlaar want to play with Dirk Kuyt also Van Der Vaart want to leave too. Craig Bellamy cannot adapt in Liverpool and he has so many problems. CLub like Aston Villa and Tottenham try to bid for Bellamy. Defeo will switch club with the w

ale striker. Cicinho didn't have chance to play with the Spanish Giant so he wants to quit. Neil will exchange with Warnock in Jan. Richards is set to be with Liverpool. Liverpool also want a new goalkeeper to replace Dudek and see first if Reina was in form. The reds will buy Amelia and Butelle for €6m(Both of them)Zenden will return to Holland and the place is Ajax. Liverpool want Hunterlaar to replace Bellamy if he goes in Jan. Torres is kind of interest with Liverpool also Villa too.

Hunterlaar €10m + Zenden

Van Dar Vaart €8m

Cicinho €6m

Neil €1m

Richards €5m

Insua €2m

Jloyd samuel - 2.5-5 millionsSheffield United will sign Greg Halford in january for £1.5m that could rise to £2m depending on appearances. Theyll also sign Kieran Richardson on loan, also possibly Ludovic Sylvestre and Carlos Edwards. nhThe latest rumour from LFC about Rafa preparing a move for Real's Cicinho is 100% true. The player is injured due to ligament damage but will be back by June '07. Rafa is looking at a summer transfer and will make a £5M bid for him. Alves is the other player still on Rafa's list for the LW position. Pennant will be cover for Alves.

News of Reina going next summer is correct with a move to Valencia already verbally agreed. Rafa will get rid of Reina and Dudek and sign a first choice keeper with Carson as cover. Expect a move for a striker in the summer (Huntelaar or David Villa). Bellamy will be sold. Kewell will not be sold as Rafa feels he still has something to offer. The most shocking rumour to be circulating around the club is the sale of Alonso in the summer. SHOCKING! "kudos"Liverpool Fc

From various reports I have heard liverpool will be signing a few players in January. Cicinho is first choice for right back with Neil and Nelson other possibilities. Craig Bellamy will be involved in a swap deal with liverpool likely to pay extra for the england international. Amelia form Livorno will also sign. Butelle and Ustari are other options. Summer signngs may include Van Der Vaart, Huntelaar, Heitinga and Micah Richards. Aguero will not sign because we had the chance to buy him but we refused to pay what Athletico Madrid offered, and they are not going to let there new record signing leave so soon considering he is having a good season with them. Torres and Villa will not happen either as both are out of Liverpools price range.I hate man u fans that know nothing about the club and come on here talking absolute rubbish. Man united will buy just one player in january and he is torres. That's it were gonna spend all our transfer budget on him maybe just over £22m. if we buy 1 more player it will eiter be billy sharp or gilardinho. Adu will come in the summer with kerlon. man u will then have 4 strikers just like we always have: rooney, saha, Rossi(has everyone forgot he's comin bak) and torres with a backup of smith.Rangers news

david murray is on the way out, his replacement is david king he is an african billionaire who has already invested in the club a while back.

scott brown is a dead cert, also 1 or 2 from lyon, 1 being a centre half. no names yet sorry.Villa Team From January:


Finnan (3 mil)


C Davies (6 mil)

Baines (2.5 mil)





Wright - Phillips (7 mil)

Keane (7 mil)

Good things coming soon!SPL NEWS: Celtic will sign K.Thompson either in Jan or in the summer. Pearson will go to Sunderland in January and A.Thompson and Balde will join Aston Villa. Balde has been terrible since he returned and Strachen see's no future for him. C.Beattie will be released in the summer - with St Mirren interested as John Sutton will be joining either Hibs or Aberdeen. Mark Viduka is also interesting Celtic as he is not playing at Middlesburgh. Strachen wants another experienced striker as Jan Vennegor of Hesslink is always injured and Zarawski is not good enough. Andy Cole and Robbie Fowler are other names being mentioned for Celtic tho Viduka is more likely.



Klos 100% January - FREE

Letizi 100% January - FREE

Hutton 50% End of Season - FREE

Rodriguez 85% January - £300k

Svensson 75% End of Season - £300k

Sionko 90% January - FREE

Novo 100% January - £500k

Prso 100% End of Season - FREE

Bardsley - Return January

This will free up £1.5m in Transfer money and around £140k a week in wages

We will keep for the second half of the season:











Burke (if he wants to stay)


Boyd (if Le Guen doesn't sell him)


We will try to sign:

Claudio Caçapa - CB (lyon)

Russel Anderson - CB (aberdeen)

Steven Pressley - CB (hearts)

Djimi Traore - CB (charlton)

Eric Cubilier - RB (nantes)

Stéphane Dalmat - CM (bordeaux)

Camel Meriem - RM (monaco)

Massimo Maccarone - ST (middlesbrough)

Ricardo Vaz Té - ST (bolton)

we will try to get all of them as we could get them cheap and they would love to come to us

we won't go for Brown or Thomson as we can't afford £3m on the one player never mind £6m for both when we have Ferguson and Clement who play in their positionsMANCHESTER UNITED NEWS

united will be signin several players over the next 2 transfer windows 2 improve the squad and replace the aging players in the squad so heres the names bein touted


DM-hargreaves/de rossi/maduro

AM-kerlon/van der vaart/mouthinho




and possibly a GK-stojkovic but only if howard leaves

kaka won't be joinin as he'll stay with milan and the same with ronaldinho (at barca) these players will be signed by the end off the summer transfer window.

the players leavin are

o'shea,richardson,fletcher,solskjear (retirement),and possibly howard (everton move made pernament) and maybe foster back on loan 2 watford.

so now u knowDavid Villa to Chelsea for 35m plus Ferreira. Richards also to come for 9m plus SWP. Nesta to come in the summer on a free. Lennon to come for 15m. Sheva will not be leaving. He had a bad injury in the summer and is not at full fitness yet!Spurs chairman daniel Levy is furious with his Porto counterpart after he tries to renege on an agreement with them to sell Ricardo Quaresma to Tottenham giving the reason that head coach manuel jesualdo ferreira had changed his mind on a promise to release Quaresma, in reality porto were just hoping to get more cash than the £12million agreed fee. quaresma was very upset and had threatened to strike unless the promise to let him go to spurs was kept.

ripleyIm not saying these will happen for sure, as the site says they are just rumours I have heard.

Juve and Inter both chasing Ajax and Cezch star Zdenek Grygera. looking for a new challenge.

Inter have also expressed an interest in Buffon, Toldo is getting on a bit and Ceasar can't cut the mustard (despite being Brazil No2) Inter will try a £21 million bid OR Adriano + £14 million, Adri has many problem at home "family" problems and they have affected his game, Inter seem keen to offload him asap.

But who will replace Adri I hear you scream? well

Inter are to join the chase for Ajax and Holland Striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar, already been linked with an £8m move to Manchester United and now according to reports in Italy he is a target for both Inter and AC Milan.

Last but not least River Plate forward Gonzalo Higuain is being linked with a move to the San Siro. the argentine starlet (only 18) scored twice agaisn't arch rivals Bocca recently and it is with this perfromance that he hopes to cement his dream move.Summer signings:

Arsenal- Sahin,Ustari,Navas,Huntelaar

Man U- Torres,Sneijder,Van Der Vaart maybe Lahm and Nani/Robben

Chelsea- Any 1 they like basicallyDuring the christmas period, expect decisions to be made reguarding player loans. Arsenal and Real Madrid should come to a conclusion surrounding Julio Baptista and Jose Antonio Reyes' loan deals with both sides already stating their eagerness to complete permanent deals. Chelsea full back Glen Johnson will sign a three year contract worth an estimated £35,000-a-week with Portsmouth. Johnson is currently on a season long loan deal at Fratton Park but is more than happy to stay with Pompey doing so well in the Premiership, as well as Jose Mourinho opting for Paulo Ferreira and Geremi as his preferred right backs. Also, Pompey manager Harry Redknapp will cancel the loan signing of Rodolph Douala who has struggled since joining the club from Sporting Lisbon. Niko Kranjcar will have to wait until the end of the season to find out if he's earned a permanent switch to Portsmouth. Inter Milan striker Julio Cruz could replace Douala on a four month loan deal, with Adriano, Hernan Crespo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of him in the pecking order at the San Siro.A guy down my local is friends with Murray, the Charlton chairman. He claims there is a lot more than meets the eye regarding Dowie's exit, which hopefully will be revealed shortly. Also, Holland, Kishishev, Thomas, and Hreidarsson will leave in January, with Holland returning to Ipswich
