Football Rumours Archive September 29 2008


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Not really a rumour, more a statement of fact. Ramos will be out on his ear. What an abysmal start to the season and you don't have the excuse of having boardroom unrest or not having any money! On paper spurs are a quality side but there is no consistency. The big question is who would take the job? I think they'll be lucky to stay up. On a different subject i genuinely believe that the old top four is finished. Chelsea or liverpool for the title with villa and city for third and fourth. Crazy?
  Wake up Reds fans, Spurs ain't going to sell Bale to you. He's still young and will be at Spurs for a few years yet. Anyhow, Levy will be lynched if he sold another of our top players to either Liverpool or United.

Spurs will make a bid for Owen in January and also the Arshavin deal will be back on. This hopefully will help to solve our goalscoring problems. At the back, de la Red will be signed as cover for King and expect also a defensive midfielder.
  If Tottenham are still struggling in January, a lot of players will leave. There are various players at the moment who are very unsettled and the following could leave in January:

J Jenas (VILLA, Portsmouth, Sunderland, Everton)
J O'hara (Villa Liverpool Blackburn)
G Bale (LIVERPOOL Everton Villa)
A Lennon (Liverpool Everton PORTSMOUTH Sunderland)

The same applies for Newcastle

S Given (EVERTON Boro West–Ham)
O Martins (MAN CITY)
M Owen (sunderland LIVERPOOL everton)
C N'zogbia (EVERTON villa)
S Taylor (arsenal spurs SUNDERLAND boro)
  Arsenal will be signing 3 players in january, these will be;
Camacho or Sears, For the future
Dretinho, will be loaned to salmanca
Marchena or Noble To give fabregas the confidence and freedom to go forward more with either of these 2 behind him.
Also expect a long–term contract for Jack Wilshere.
  –––AFC––– Arsenal will look at signing Marko Marin and Cristian Zapata in january.
Crystal Palace are looking to take Rui Fonte and Gavin Hoyte on loan but Arsenal want 1st option on Victor Moses instead of a loan fee.
  Newcastle will make a big clear out in January if the club has not been taken over by then. Players likely to leave include:
Given (Arsenal)
Owen (Spurs)
Taylor (Everton)
Martins (Athletico Madrid)
Butt (Blackburn)
Viduka (West Brom)
Duff (Stoke)
Barton (anyone)
  Although Gareth Bale has said to the media he is happy at Spurs.He has also told close friends and family that he would relish the oppurtunity to play for Liverpool and would love to get there as soon as possible. He, alongside aaron lennon will sign for the mersey club for a total fee of 23 million in January. Rafinha will sign for 8 million and owen for 4 million. Fabio Aurelio will see his reds days come to an end with a return to brazil.Jermaine pennant will make the switch to stoke after being impressed with their premierleague display. Aislan from sao paulo will check in to liverpool for 10 million, although the price could lower with a part swap deal with aurelio.
  Carlos Vela and Jack Wilshere will be joining Watford on loan until January.
  Within 2 weeks Newcastle will be taken over by a consortium from Africa (either the Nigerians or the South Africans), both parties want to reinstate Keegan. Once Keegan returns Owen and Martins will both sign new deals, as will Harper and Viduka.

In January he will be looking to spend big:
Stephen Warnock (£5m) Blackburn
Giles Barnes (£4m) Derby
Joaquin (£15m) Valencia
Jonny Evans (£6m) Man Utd

January sales: Ameobi (£1.5m) Ipswich
Cacapa (£1m) Bolton

Then in the summer there will be a lot of changes
Joao Mountinho (£19m) Sporting
Micah Richards (£15m) Man City
Jack Wilshere (Loan) Arsenal
Ashley Young (£25m) Aston Villa

N'Zogbia (£5m)
Butt (£1m)
Duff (£3m)
Smith (£3m)
  Arsenal to sign Amr Zaki for £10 mil. unfortunately Wigan will not be able to sign him permanently. .

And lets clear the 'Aguero' thingy up. .
Sergio Aguero–he is the new Maradona. we all know that. .and everyone knows he will be the world #1 in couple of years time if he continues to play like that. . that's not the point. the point is He do have many suitors who want to sign him. .they are Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Liverpool, Man United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Man City. .among them theres only one club who have no chance at all to sign him and that is Real Madrid. but the rest of the others do have chance to sign him as they all have money. .when the transfer window begins in the next summer all of those clubs will bid for Aguero. . now it depends on the bid and the player himself. . SO PLZ STOP SAYING HE IS JOINING YOUR CLUB. ITS TOO EARLY TO SAY THAT. NO ONE KNOWS WHO HE WILL SIGN FOR. HE MIGHT END UP AT INTER MILAN. .
  +++ AFC Bulletin +++

With AW having found out that Chelsea want 2 make a move 2 sign AFC youngster Wilshire , AW has decided Wlishire will sign a professional deal 2 keep him at AFC come Jan which is when he turns 17 . Expect AW 2 sign a new gk in Jan as its been known hes unhappy with Alumnia .
  It is widely known that Henry was a destructive force in the Arsenal dressing room, for that reason there is a 0% chance of him moving back to the Gunners ever. .
  Charlie mulgrew and Dean Shiels to rangers.
  Whoever said that Keane is going back to Spurs is having a laugh. He has already got a few assists to his name and is starting to link well with Torres.

However the Bale rumours are true as Rafa has finally accepted Aurelio may never overcome his injury proneness.
The move will not be made for Bale however until next summer.

Liverpool's only January signing will Michael Owen for £3–4million.

Barry will not be signing, it seems Rafa scared Alonso into returning to his best form with the Barry saga.

  Ok just wna clear sum things up about sergio aguero – hahaha – hes a boyhood liverpool fan – hahahaha –

"If I had to choose a league then it would be the Premier League," Aguero is quoted as saying in the Munich TZ newspaper.

"I have been a Liverpool fan for as long as I can remember and it would be a dream to play there.

"I watched the Champions League final and celebrated every goal as if it was for Independiente."

so if liverpool can stump up the cash the deal is done – but there is practically no chance of that happening unless sheikh mohammed or wateva buys the club. im expecting man city to give him a stupid amount of money to join. I'll leave the rest to you – ha – shell
  Benitez will go out of his way to bring in more English players at Liverpool. In the summer he will try to bring through:

Gareth Barry (15mil)
Michael Owen (free)
Gareth Bale (11mil) Yes ok, he's Welsh

They will also try to bring in:
Sebastian Geovinco (7mil)
Ibrahim Afellay (12mil)
Aislan (7mil)

They are also interested in:
Joe Ledley (4mil) Another welshman – unlikely
Adam Lallana (3mil) 50%

Other youngsters Liverpool are interested
Zele Ismail – 1mil 90%
Nicolai Boilsen – 1mil 90%
Vladimir Weiss – 1mil 90%
Manu de Moral – 3mil
Gerard Deulofeu's – 200k 90%

Benitez feels he know wants to invest in younger players as he has the team to compete.

Leaving will be:
Xabi Alonso (15mil)
Jermaine Pennant (5mil)
Yossi Benayoun (6mil)
Fabio Aurelio (4mil)
Sami Hyypia (free)
  Gareth Bale may well go to Anfield but Guess whom Spurs want in a straight Swap. The legend that is Robbie keane.
Rafa willing to do business as he knows Torres and Gerrad works a lot better and Babel is the better choice of the bench.
Welcome home Keano and millions profit.
  Walter Smith is very pleased with the form of Kirk Broadfoot and thinks he will become an Alan Hutton type player. He sees Sasa Papac as a safe pair of hands at left back but is looking for a maurading left back option, the names suggested have been Aberdeen's Charlie Mulgrew, Fulham's Paul Konchesky, Galatasary's Sabri Sanoglu and Hannonver's Hungarian international Szabolts Huszti, all at present being scouted.

  Arsenal have offered Crystal Palace 7 players to take on loan:

1)Herni Lansbury–CM
2)Rui Fonte–CF
3)Jay Simpson–RW
4)Gavin Hoyte–RB
5)Fran Merdia–CAM
6)Rhys Murphy–CF
7)James Dunne–R/LW
  This January Benitez will add a defender to replace Hyypia who will move o in the summer. Reports suggest he is lining up a bid for Aislan (10.5mil)

If Liverpool are in the hands of new owners in the summer, they will bid for:

Sergio Aguero (Alonso + Aurelio + 17mil)
Michael Owen (free)
Jakub Błaszczykowski (9mil)
Gareth Barry (15mil)
Gareth Bale (13mil)

The following will make way:

Dirk Kuyt (9mil)
Xabi Alonso (swap)
Fabio Aurelio (swap)
Jermaine Pennant (4mil)
Sami Hyypia (free)

If Liverpool don't have new owners, expect a bid for Thierry Henry for 9mil but not Aguero or Owen. It would also mean Kuyt will stay at the club. Bale may not join either and so Aurelio would also stay.
  Aaron Lennon will not be joining Liverpool.

Gareth Bale however will join in the summer for a fee of around 12mil.

Jakub Błaszczykowski will also join for around 8mil. Benitez will convert the winger into an atttacking full back.

Benitez will also move for Gareth Barry and will have his man for 15mil.

Michael Owen will be snapped up on a free.

If Liverpool are in the hands of a new owner, it is also likely they will smash British records to sign Sergio Aguero for around 32mil. Aguero, a liverpool fan would only move to England if Liverpool come knocking. Arbeloa, Aurelio and Alonso are likely to be makewights in the deal.
His signing would mean the departure of Dirk Kuyt.

Aislan will be replacing Hyypia alsthough the brazilian may cost up to 10.5mil.

Reina Cavalieri
Błaszczykowski Degan
Carragher Agger Skrtel Aislan
Bale Dossena
Mascherano Barry Lucas Plessis Spearing
Gerrard Benayoun
Babel Riera
Aguero Keane Pacheco
Torres Owen N'gog
  Benitez could make a shcok January move for Thierry Henry. The striker is not happy with his current situation at Barcelona and if it continues he will hope for a move back to Arsenal. However it is unlikely Arsenal will stump up 8mil when they have the likes of Adebayor, Van persie, Bendtner, Eduardo and vela as options. His next bet would be Liverpool.
  My sources tell me that west ham are going to let arsenal talk to teenager Freddie Sears on a proposed move to the emirates in january he is going to cost arsenal around 4–6 million.
  Real Madrid will bid for Bastian Schweinsteiger of FC Bayern in January. They will go as high as 4 million, as he is out of contract in the summer. Schuster thinks Schweinsteiger can complement Robben on the wings. The only things that could derail the offer are the player extending his contract at Bayern or another player emerging who, unlike Schweinsteiger, would not be cup–tied for the Champions League. If Bayern refuse to sell, Madrid will wait for the tranfer window to close, then offer the player a contract to come on a free in July.
