Football Rumours Archive June 30 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Liverpool have bought Glen Johnson mostly with the money from crouch. The rest of the money for it will come from arbeloa being sold to Madrid for 8 million. Dossena will be sold for 7 million. The transfer money that has been given is roughly 20 million plus the 7 from dossena that's 27 million. LFC will spend roughly 20 million of this on silva and buy a young cm will be bought in the next few days fee has been agreed. The rest of the money will be spent on youngersters. Also tuncay sanli could be bought as boro are relagated and we could get him cheap and he is a versatille player which rafa likes.
  From a very close resource, David Villa has been at anfield in talks with Benitez and has accepted terms, also expect to see distan from portsmouth and arron lennon to sign for a fee of about 8 million. Lucas will be leaving also with benayoun going to another english club (Blackburn). Remember who wrote this when this happens.
  Manchester united + arsenal to battle it out for evertons youngster Jack Rodwell
  Birmingham City

Benjani is a target for Birmingham manager Alex McLeish. McLeish is keen to wrap up a deal for the Man City hitman, and is lining up a bid of £2m. Benjani would be keen on a move to the newly promomted side as he sees his chances of regular football at his current side as slim. Lee bowyer, Barry Ferguson and a loan move for Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey are expected to be tied up in the coming weeks.
  Manchester City are set to raid Aston Villa for the 3rd time this summer for winger Ashley Young who will join the club for £18 million + midfielder Kelvin Etuhu.
  Martin O'Neill will sit down with Michael Owen this week to discuss a £40,000 a week contract, with an additional £5,000 per goal and £5,000 per appearance.
  Eidur Gudjohnsen is desperate to return to the premiership, and he could leave for as little as £2 million, Birmingham City, Bolton and Fulham are keen to the land the icelandic ace, but his wage demands could put them all off.
  Hamburg will sign Wigan's Paul Scharner in a £5 MILLION raid.
  Forest's Kelvin Wilson will join Portsmouth on July 1st in a £500,000 deal to replace the departing Sol Campbell, who departs for Villa.
  Chelsea Ins:
Attacking Mid:Hamsik 20m/Modric 25m
Centre Back:Juan 12m/Richards 10m
Striker:Pato 45m/Aguero 45m/Benzema 35m
Winger:Zhirkov 18m/Young 28m
Chelsea Outs:
Carvalho+Deco 25m Inter
Ferreira 2m Portugal club
Di Santo Loan Blackburn
Sinclair Loan Birmingham

Zhirkov deal is done and will be announced Wednesday. Hamsik or Modric will be new Lampard. Young striker needed as Anelka and Drogba will only be effective for 2 more years. Di Santo could be moulded like Drogba over the next few years. Wingers needed to provide more width for bigger players to control the middle.
  Everton players in
Joe Ledley
Joao Moutinho
(These two are virtually done deals)
Andranik Teymourian(Fulham) Loan.
Adam Hammill(Liverpool) Loan.

  To the guy that said he dosent believe bout the possible investment in rangers. it the not souness who is interested in investing . he is the public face of two canadian buisnessmen. this may not happen it is only a proposal.

i have it on good authority from an insider at kilmarnock that rangers have made a bid for kevin kyle. the bid has not been accepted but rangers may go back in
  For give me please if my English is no good, as I am Spanish, and my cousin is David Villa. He recently return from the coup and will now go on holiday. But before he go he tell me that he will not play for Valencia in the next season because he have offer from Torres' team. He thought that he would be staying at Valencia for they reject the offer Real Madrid, and now Madrid target Benzema, but Valencia lose more money each day and now LFC have offered he will only play for this team if not valencia or Madrid.
  Arsenal and liverpool are battling it out for the signature of Muamba
  I don't know how true the rumour of vanistelroy going to lfc are but sky sports website states that he has been spotted at john lennon airport. they do state that he could be going for talks with blackburn

Last night I was out drinking with friends in Frodsham in Cheshire. Imagine our surprise when we bumped into Michael Owen and his dad at a quiet little pub. Anyway, of course we asked about where he thinks he'll be next season. It seems that he has a number of options in the UK, France and Italy. His father, although quite drunk at this point, hinted that his biggest offer was abroad. Unfortunately, he wasn't really making much sense and his speech was slurred, so my group focused back on Michael. From what we gather, his preference is to move to Everton or Aston Villa. However, he recieved an offer from Stoke and Hull amounting to £15k a week more than Everton and Villa would pay. Currently he's negotiating with the two big clubs regarding trivial things, such as how much playing time he might get, etc. Anyway, the upshot of this is that Michael will most likely be a Toffee or a Villan come next season.
  To the guy that said that SAF has a very secret but huge signing up his sleeve, you are very right. That signing will be Michael Essien from Chelsea. He nearly signed for United before joining the blues but has now decided it's time for a change, plus Ancelotti seems to like Mikel. SAF will use Essien in the holding midfield area and then rotate once Hargreaves is fit/Essien goes to African Nations Cup.
Benzema won't sign. Valencia, Young, Costa, Dodo and Etoo from under the noses of City are the other players joining. Devilish7
  Manchester United Team News for Next Season

Van Der Sar

Rafael Ferdinand Vidic Evra



Subs: Foster O'Shea Fabio Costa Fletcher Carrick Berbatov
  Cardiff City are to be investigated by the FA over payments made to the 'political charity' Common Purpose.

They will not be able to buy/sell anymore players until the FA is confident that their finances are in order and that no fraud has taken place.

There could be further bad news for the Bluebirds, with David Jones joining Preston as their new manager and Peter Ridsdale has failed to find a new buyer for the club – meaning that it could be a very difficult season indeed for them.

  I heard from a reliable source that Petr Cech (plus cash) has been offered in a swap with Buffon and Chiellini
  Lescott to City deal is getting nearer. Hughes has offered a whopping £24m, Moyes is demanding £30m. I guess they'll meet around the £26m mark? Or maybe Moyes will accept the £24m with Richards thrown in for good measure. Strangely, Hughes and Lescott are both on holiday in Dubai. I wonder if they're staying at the same hotel?
  Sunderland are set to rub the salt into newcastles wounds by signing the following.

Shola Ameobi
Alan Smith
Joey Barton– One year loan

I'm also the guy who posted about the three spurs players who came and the Cisse deal, which I reported a week before it happened.
  Arsene wenger has BIG money to spend.
He will sign;
Cana or Melo
He is in talks with;
Lyon to complete the signing of Benzema. This will only happen when Adebayor leaves, not for money but because Benzema will only go to arsenal if he is to start the season as first choice striker in world cup year.
Frank Ribery and his representatives to sign him. He has agreed a fee of 32million plus Nicklas Bendtner. Ribery wants to come to arsenal but wenger doesn't want to break the wage structure, that is the reason why he wasn't signed earlier. A deal however is likely.
Wenger wants to play 4–3–2–1 next season. That is the reason why i doubt the ribery deal as he wants;
––––Van Persie––Arshavin
  Rumours are:

rossi to man utd
eto'o will stay at barca until next year
melo to arsenal
adebayor to milan with cash and flamini in other direction
maicon will stay at inter
wigan, celtic, sunderland, birmingham, hull and everton are interested in landon donovan
fabiano to man city
andre santos to aston villa
bentley to villa or city
tevez to man city, chelsea or sunderland
essien or mascherano to barcelona
dunne to portsmouth if takeover goes through
fortune to hull
ribery to stay at bayern
delph to west ham

thanks. daniel
