After what looks like another unrewarding season at the Bernabeau, things are going to change. Capello will be sacked and Schuster is favourite to take over the reins. AS he is German, expect one or two Germans to be brought into the squad, . LIkely cnadidates are Klose/ Metzelder/ Schweinsteiger. Dani ALves will be bought from Sevilla for between £10-20 million. Gallas also will be looked into as a left back is desperatley needed. POssibly Villa also, his recent performances for Valencia have renewed interest in him. Robben is also a major possibiility with Real losing Beckham they will sturggle on the wings, Robben is pefect. Obviously they would like C. Ronaldo but that's looking ever more likely like a dead deal. The number one target though is Kaka. Calderon believes him to b enumber on ein the world and will stop at almost nothing to get his signature. Salgado, Cassano, Guti, R. Carlos, BEckham, Cannavaro, all to be sold. EMerson will be given another chance. The Real team next year: Casillas/ Lopez Dani Alves/ Cicinho Ramos/ Mejia Metzelder/ Helguera Gallas/ Marcelo Gago/ De La Red Emerson/ Diarra

Robben/ Reyes Kaka/ Raul Robinho/ Higuain Villa/ Van Nistlerooy/ Klose

I've also heard from my mate whos granda is a Celtic scout that he has been sent to Germany to scout rolfes of Bayern lev a young cdm. also I've heard that Celtic will try and sign Brown Hibs, Viduka, onyewu, makoun.

An ambitious Phil Gartside will offer Sven Goran Errikson the chance to take over at Bolton Wanderers with a £20 million spending budget. Gerard Houllier (currently at Lyon) is also on Bolton's wanted list.


Just heard Bolton and Newcastle are interested in signing Glasgow Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor who over the past few months has become one of the best keepers in Britain. Rangers won't let him go for less then £4m. This will allow Rangers to make a bid for Craig Gordon of Hearts or Carlo Cudicini of Chelsea.

Jolly Orange Giant!

Dennis Wise will have until Christmas at Leeds to ensure Leeds United are in the Top 6 in League One or face the sack. Should Wise face the sack, the Leeds United board are prepared to install former Luton Town boss as the new manager. However David Healy will be definitely be off in the summer for several million, and Wise will be given up to a big £2 million to spend on a League One campaign.



Man United's hopes of signing Torres hav been thrashed after Torres' captains arm-band incidence. So expect Liverpool to get him after triggering the 27M release Clause.

After the horrible performance against the Pompeys, Rafa had turned his attention to getting a new defender to replace Hyypia (Palleta was the replacement but he's not impressed Rafa, so he'll to a lower league to gain experience) .

Dont expect any midfielder to join LFC as Garcia n Kewell will b back for the next season. If Kewell doesn't do well, Rafa will buy a midfielder only in the January Transfer Widow. To sum-up Rafa's plans, it will be:

Torres - 27Million

Defender (Alaves/ Ayala)

Simao is just a smoke screen. If Benifica agree on a low fee only then will Rafa sign him. Remember, even with huge transfer kitty, Rafa will still be miser in spending the American bucks.

Hail LFC, Hail Rafa!

Arsenal Bulletin

Expect NUFC Parker 2 move 2 AFC 2 replace Gilberto who will move 2 Serie A . With Lehmann staying see Alumnia leave AFC and Scott Carson move 2 AFC, Song 2 move 2 Charlton or some where else next season as will Djourou because Hoyte has signed a new long term deal with AFC . NUFC N'zogbia will not move 2 AFC but if WIGAN are relagated AFC just might move 4 Leighton Bains .

Rangers will no buy Scott Brown as they have been put of by the 4 million because that would be most of his budget gone asking prics in stead they will buy young Man United midfeilder Chris eagels for 1 million pounds he is a simaler type of player to Brown but scores more goals also to come in will be dado prsos replacement who will be Mido from Spurs he will cost 2.5 million also to come in will be Lenílson Batista de Souza from sao Paulo for 2. 38 million pounds

Middlesbrough are set to have a reasonable war-chest for pre-season transfers.

As well as signing Woodgate for £7m from Real Madrid, Don Mackay has reccomended Scott Brown, Steven Whittaker and David Murphy to Gareth Southgate as potential new signings. Murphy (A former Boro youngster) and Mark Proctor (Boro legend, Hibs First Team-Coach) are said to have gave the club a fantastic reference to Whittaker&Brown, who have apparently already held talks with Southgate.

Also linked with the Riverside is Bosingwa - the FC Porto RB/ RM. Porto are apparently not looking to extend his contract, and he'd be free to move to Boro on a Bosman Transfer. In addition, if Mark Shcwarzer leaves the club for the German Bundesliga, Jerzy Dudek is seen by Southgate as the ideal replacement.

If WHU pull off mission impossible and stay up, expect big changes at UP in the summer by Curbs, with the backing of Eggy.

Curbs will look to offload Carroll, Konchesky, Ferdinand, Dailly, Sheringham, Harewood, Etherington, Cole, Pantsil, Reo-Coker, Newton, Bowyer, Quashie, Blanco. Recruiting up to £20million.

He will then look to bring in Sidwell, Parker, Watson, Baines, Routledge and Pollitt (cover) and will make a bid to sign free agent Saviola to play with Tevez, who will sign a one year deal. These two will form a three pronged attack with Ashton with Sidwell, Parker and Noble in midfield. Neil to become club captain.

If Curbs/ Eggy pull this off, the Hammers will take a huge step to becoming the major force Egyy wants at West Ham.

Barcelona are to offer Deco in a straight swap with Chelsea's Shaun Wright Philips.

-Man United have decided that they will not spend more than 15million on Owen Haregreaves. This has opened the door for Barcelona to sign him and they are now the new favourites.

-Samuel Eto'o will be staying with Barcelona as will Ronaldinho. Rijkaard will stay for another season and then Barce will target Arsene Wenger who may not renew his contract

-There will be a three way swap between Inter, Madrid and Valencia. Villa to Madrid, baptista to inter, Adriano to Valencia.

-Real Madrid are going portuguese. They are going to splash 12million on Simao, 14mil on Quaresma, 11million on Andrade and a 22million deal for moutinho and nani.

-Scolari is over the moon with this as it means his portuguese players will work together on a regular basis.

-Arsenal look set to raid Sevilla. They will be signing Alves Navas and puerta for a fee of 14million with Ljunberg+Reyes going the other way

-Tottenham are favourites for 9million gareth bale. United, arenal Liverpool Newcastle and Portsmouth also in the running.

-if West Ham are regated, Newcastle will raid their team. Upson, Neill, Ashton, benayoun will go to Newcastle with West Ham gaining only around 17million for their services. Baines will join them for 7mil. Dystin and Sidwell will come in for free. Emre, sibierski and most of the defense will leave.

-Portsmouth are favourites for Defoe. villa, Bolton, Man City, Man United, Chelsea also in the running

-Gudjohnson and around 15million could be on the way to to White Hart Lane with berbatov going the other way.

-Arsenal will sign Barton for a fee of 6million and gordon for 5million from Hearts.

-Ljunberg is on the way to Everton to replace Arteta who is being tracked by at. Madrid, Sevilla, Barcelona and Valencia.

-giuly to Lyon in a straight swap for Abidal

-Roy Keane may not spend a single penny this summer. Instead he will get loans in and sign players on bosmans. On bosman he is lookng at zenden, Fowler and distin for experience. On loan he is looking at guthrie, anderson, Sinclair, Sahar, mancienne, A. Traore, Bendtner, Rossi and Senderos
