MAN UTD Transfer Insight

Man Utd is seriously lacking quality depth upfront this term and SAF will address this come January by bring in Nani(if sporting do not advance) and possibly Torres for the long haul. the price range would be between 22-27 million dollars with it possibly being knocked down if Atletico would consider taking Pique as player compensation. This two players and SAF's big offensive targets as he sees he needs more quality depth up front in order to susatin the lead in EPL. Huntleear may come in the summer but is content for the moment to see how he progresses for the remainder of the season. He would cost around 13.

At centre mid, SAF will change his focus from OH to De Rossi. OH and Carrick are too much of the same type of player, good possession but both generally lack the same time of demeanor and intensity that Keano had and sees De Rossi and the Italian embodiment of Roy. Also, SAF will look into bringing in Jean Makoun from Lillle as backup to the def. centre mid position. He nearly came in the summer but the sides were unable to reach a transfer agreement. Reo-Coker and Parker are possible but would prefer DeRossi. Price in the range of 16-20.

Flankers for SAF include the usual suspects: Robben (out of favor at Chelsea and originally wnated to come to the Reds but again, fee could not be reached) Malouda, Lennon, Downing possibly Ryan Babel from Ajax(he would be very cheap at around 2-3 million and is an excellent young player from their youth system) and McGeady from Celtic intrigues SAF as well.

The defense is very solid with rio vidic heinze evra neville o'shea silvestre brown and evans and pique performing well during their loan spells. SAF may look to dump silvestre or brown if he feels that evans and pique can cut it(which im sure they are capable of)

Sales from Man Utd will include: Howard(7 from Everton) Fletcher(4 to Rangers) Jones(1 million) Richardson(4-5) and possibly Smtih(5-6) Total being around 20 +15 from sales from last season+ whatever else SAF needs enough to facilitate purchase of talent required to acheive trophiesMUFC news.Dear guys.SAF is not to buy anyone during this coming transfer.They will maren'tain the current squad.Not like chelski.For the guy whoo said Van Der Vaat and lenon will join liverpool,are you thinking straightly?rafael Benitez won`t sell alonso either.RAaael Benitez will tryt to sign james milner as he is desperate for a new right midfielder.He will also sign lucas Neil.

Other Big Transfers:Adriano to Juventus

:Buffon to Inter

-GAv-This is the journalist from Kicker. Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Newcastle are all keeping tabs on Rafael Van der Vaart of Hamburg SV. Although, Van der Vaart is ambitious and realizes that he cannot achieve all of his goals there, he loves the city and team and is reluctant to leave. He will only go if HSV receive an offer that they absolutely prefer to keeping Van der Vaart, which would have to be around 20 million Euros.MAN U NEWS -

Hearts GK Craig Gordon will be signed for 1 mill.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar will join for 12 mill.

Freddy Adu will not be signed.

Frenando Torres is a possible signing but most probaly won't as he is to much like wayne rooney and huntelaar will fit in better.

Hargreaves is a slight of coming but bayern won't let him go, so don't expect him to be at OT.


Liverpool will sign Lucas Neill. This is a done deeal.

Liverppol will keep Harry Kewell for 1 more season to see if he gets back to his besta fter having thr surgery in Australia. Beacuse Kewell at his best is the best palyer in england no doubt about it.To the numpty who said The Blades don't have £10m to spend. believe me mate they're sat on way more than that. the problem remains Warnock's inability to attract top name players. The Blades will shock many in the game just watch. Warnock's bargain basement mentality continues to infruriate several of the board and his 'muck and nettles' approach is wearing paper thin. Watch this space. -Manchester United News-

There will be a lot of transfer activity taking place at Old Trafford in January and next summer, with many big name players arriving or being linked to the premiership's biggest club. Likely arrivals in January will be Nani from Sporting and Hargreaves from Bayern. Other possibilities in january include Torres from Atletico and Defoe and Lennon from Tottenham. The Hargreaves deal all depends on his recovery from his broken leg and his problems getting the deal done in Germany. He would probably cost in the region of £12-15 million, but would be cheaper if United offer O'Shea or Brown or both as part of the transfer. As for Nani, Man United have a deal with Sporting and would be able to get the youngster for less than first thought. The big money would have to go towards Fernando Torres who would probably cost around £25 million, depending on the interest from other clubs. The two Tottenham players are not really expected to arrive but would be great news for SAF with a good winger and a good striker moving to the club. Lennon would be more expensive, maybe £15 million with Defoe coming for around £12 million.

Also look out for players arriving next summer including the likes of Cahill from Everton and Freddy Adu who will sign a permanent deal with the reds.Anthony stokes to celtic for 500k?? u have to be daft mate, arsenal signed stokes for 1m and gave him a 800k singing on fee, he drives a nice mercedes clk as he visits john stewart alot who stays under my mates flat.

Arsenal won't sell stokes, not unless a big fee of around 3-6m is agreed

some transfer news

Falkirk have signed a pre contract deal with john sutton of st mirrenSome of the prices posted on this rumours site are RIDICULOUS. £5m for M.Richards? £2.5 for L.Baines? wth?

Anyway, my rumours. Arsene Wenger will NOT buy anyone in Jan UNLESS he can offload some players first (eg. Ljungberg).

Riordan, Venegoor, Miller, Beattie, StokesRangers news !

There will be 2 signings for rangers in the january window, Scott Brown and a right back from France. There is a rumor the name of the stadium will be changed to a well known sponser - arena. This however has been linked with another scottish club. If Rangers secure a Champions League spot expect some decent money to be spent in the summer. RicardosMiddlesbrough winger Gaizka Mendieta has been told he can leave the Riverside by Gareth Southgate and there are already several clubs interested. Watford would like to take him to Vicarage Road until the end of the season, but it's thought that Mendieta would like to return to La Liga, where Osasuna, Gimnastic Tarragona and Malaga could make an offer.Bayern Munich have stated that Hargreaves is not coming to MU because of financial reasons, SAF does not want Torres or Defoe and we don't need a goalkeeper. Expect a another bid for Ribery or Nani (we do have an agreement with Sporting). Carrick is Scholes replacement as SAF has said he wanted Hargreaver as holding midfielder. Lastly, Phil Bardsley is Neville's replacement.Laugh?? Seriously. To the dude that wrote yesterday that BARRY FERGUSON was the best player in Scotland at the moment. .:o) hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

Ok - here's some real Old Firm transfer news

Firstly, Scott Brown and Kevin Thompson WON'T be leaving Hibs in January. FACT. Jackie McNamara will be coming to Easter Road though.

Gers - Will be signing two centre half's, one from Lyon and one from Nantes. Burke will move out unless his wages are structured and he gets moved up into the Prso and Ferguson bracket.

Celtic - Thommo is away. Will be ATTEMPTING to sign Huntelaar, not 100% he'll come though, as other big clubs are in for him. Believe it or not SHAUN MALONEY will sign a new deal, whilst AIDEN McGEADY is away to MAN CITY!?!?!

Heard it here firstFinally found a place too post this. A few earlier rumours suggested that a swap deal was on between Defoe and Bellamy. I am not sure if this is true but Defo could be moving on.

Whilst on a company jolly to a London NightClub who should also be in the VIP section but a couple of Spurs players, including Defo.

He said he really enjoys Spurs but is frustrated at the lack of First team starts so is seriously thinking of moving on but only if one of the big 4 come in for him.

Guess we will have to wait and see if he was serious.To the guy who dismissed nani as a possiblility for reasons that SAF wants a more british team. are u slightly insane? of all the big sides in the PL we have the most british of cores. foster, ferdinand, neville, brown, giggs, scholes, carrick, fletcher, richardson, rooney and smith. lets not forget the loanies- bardsley, evans, martin and frazier. so in seeing this i don't think one more portugeezer would make us any less british. Nani will come in summer. but Torres could come as early as jan. he is not happy with the present situation at Athletico, and he is not really getting the same service he got last season.

heard it from a good source down the training groundARSENAL NEWS:

As all Arsenal fans know Arsne will not buy anyone in January. Although Wenger will look to buy the following players in the summer.

Goalkeeper - So far we have been linked with Buffon, Ustari, Gordon, Pele and Ameilia. I personnally would like to see Shay Given at the club. Rumour has it that Aliadere might be going to Newcastle in January, part of the deal being Arsenal get first refusal on Given.

Defense - Arsenals defence is pretty good with decent cover in every area. We could do with a international left back, Lahm being the most suited but I can't see us prising him away from Bayern. Bale would be a good squad addition but maybe a little too young just yet plus we have another great prospect in Traore. That leaves Abidial. I personnally don't think he makes the grade and would not like to see him at the club.

Midfield - Our game now is such that we are crying out for a natural wide player. The shortlist for this position is Navas, Ribery and Young. For me (although my missus will kill me!) I believe this will be freddies last season, his attitude is still right but the pace has now deserted him. If this is the case I can see both Navas and Ribery joining us to compete with Rosicky and Hleb making a very exciting prospect for the clubs future.

Strikers - Arsenal do not need strikers yet Arsene loves buying them. At present we have Henry, V.Persie, Adebyor, Aliadere, Walcott, Lupoli, Bendtnar, Stokes, Vela. Aliadere will be sold (As I Have Said) Stokes & Vela will go out on loan next season. Bendtnar and Lupoli will make up our five main strikers with Henry, RVP & Adebyor. They will be given until this time next year before a decision is made and if necessary a new striker will be brought in then.

Therefore if all goes well the new Arsenal team for 2007/2008 will be.

Given (8m)/Lehmann




Lahm (12m)/Clichy

Hleb/Navas (10m or part exchange Lauren + 6m)



Rosicky/Ribery (14m /part exchange Ljungberg+ 7m)

V. Persie/Adebyor


Total spend = £44m / £33m.Bolton, West Ham and West Brom have all pulled out of the race to sign PLYMOUTH ARGYLE playmaker AKOS BUSZAKY. £1m bids from all three clubs were rejected with Argyle's valuation being closer to £1.5m. neither club think he's worth that. Buszaky is now expected to move to Scottish giants GLASGOW RANGERS in January after Argyle accepted an offered of around £1.2m for the Hungarian international.

Another Argyle player on the move is likely to be 18-year old LUKE SUMMERFIELD. Reading, Sheffield United and West Ham have been monitoring the youngster and all had scouts at Home Park when Summerfield produced a classy man-of-the-match performance against Luton.

Finally, Ian Holloway is in the process of tying up a deal that will bring BOURNEMOUTH striker JAMES HAYTER to Plymouth, with NICK CHADWICK going in the opposite direction as part of the deal. Holloway is also in discussions with NICKY BUTT.Tottenham are set to sign David Beckham, Arjen Robben and Curtis Davies.

Aaron Lennon will go to Chelsea (£10m + Robben) ans Calum Davenport will join West Brom as part of the Davies deal. Edgar Davids will leave to join Ajax in January. Defoe will join Man Utd.GOOONERNEWS Arsenal to make a £12.5million bid for Jesus Navas(sevilla)and a large bid thought to be around £12million for Micah Richards(man city).Franck Ribery(marseille) will join Arsenal but not until the summer?Also very strong rumours linking several goalkeepers to Arsenal,these are Marco Amelia(livorno),Yohann Pele(le mans)and Craig Gordon(hearts).Firstly can I say that someone yesterday said Reo-Coker will be going as he is not a first team regular??! Erm, are they talking about a different Reo-Coker, one that isn't the captain and the first name on the team sheet if fit? Anyway, on to some real rumours coming from the irons. Pards will not sign David Beckham, although the fans would love to see him in the claret and blue shirt, pards wants to go for a younger winger with pace - obviously SWP has been targeted. He is first choice, but if chelski price him out of a transfer then matty jarvis from gillingham will be bought as he impressed greatly in the pre-season firendly this summer and has been watched in every game this season by a west ham representative. If jarvis does come in, pards will also sign a player with prem experience to ensure the Jarvis is not under too much pressure - this may be Bentley from Blackburn as he is keen to return to London. Also in Jan Mascherano will leave on loan with a permanant deal in the summer (when he can actually play for another team) but tevez will stay and form a partnership with Ashton with Bobby Zamora and Harewood being involved regularly. Carlton Cole will be shipped out to Charlton for the 2mill paid as they will look to replace Darren Bent (he is off 100%), as his attitude is 'awful' and has played a much bigger role in upsetting team morale than the argies. After the Jan window the starting

lineup (if all fit) will be:


Spector Anton Gabbidon Konch

SWP Reo-Coker(c) Mullins Ethrington



Other players who will play regularly: Benayoun Zamora, Harewood, McartneyCELTIC TRANSFER TARGETS !

THEY ARE ALL PLAYERS WE'VE BEEN LINKED WITH IN THE PAST 6 monthsRangers forward Novo to join Ipswich on loan in January with permanent move in summer, if PLG gets new forward using money from Ricksen transfer. Gavin Rae to Hibs in Jan.Arsenal will sign a striker in summer.Adebayor will leave the club.To the man that said nigel reo coker is out of favour at west ham !! R U MAD!! He is loved by mostly everyone at the club and is are captain and a role model to all are young fans. Also a pssilble england international , then captain!! He will only go if a bid comes in for 20 million, And i no he might have been a bit upset west ham turned down a 15 million bid from arsenal but with eggert in he may be thinking differently.

West ham In's


And another winger posilbly


C.cole possilbly 40 % chance to sheff utd.

and the argentinas in the summer!!United News- Defoe will not be signing for MANU as he is not good enough. He doesn't get into the Spurs teams so why would united want him? No striker liking in Jan unless injuries to roon or loui and they would only be Torres (23mil) or hunterlar (16mil). Only other jan transfer would be Nani (10mil. Expect major activity in summer as SAF leaves his reign. Heitinga, OH will definitly be arriving along with a few others, no names yet until i hear more, but especially if we win title (most likely)expect big names.January deals will see spurs sign the following

Giles Barnes - 2 million but loaned back to derby

Wes Brown +

Kieron Richardson - swap with defoe

David nugent - 4.8 million

Leonardo - 1.2 million

Ben Alnwick - 1 million + marton fulup.

Leaving the lane will be

danny murphy - 500k

Fulup + defoe - swaps

Lee young-pyo - 4 million

Paul stalteri - 400k

Right lets get the SPL rumours sorted coz sum people are posting rubbish.There will be alot of activity at Celtic in the next to transfer windows.They will let Pearson leave for 1m,Riordan will go along with Balde.Lennon will leave maybe retire and Thomson will b freed.They will the invest money raised from transfers plus Champions League money in buying a Centre half(don't no who yet) They will then try and attract Tymoshchuk from Shaktar or Thomson from Hibs to replace Lennon.They will also bid for Brown as cover for midfield however this may not be successful.Money will then be spent on striker with Stokes looking most likly to cum in.Maloney will sign new deal,he is waiting to 1st Jan before signing so he dusnt need to pay his sacked agent,however in the unlikly case he leaves Naismith will be the target.

Moving onto Rangers whoeva was the idiot that said PLG has money to spend,get ur facts right.Gers have 3m maximum and this will be spent on a centre half,likly to be pressly and Kaboul and then Brown will be targeted with rest of the money.PLG feels that selling Boyd is an option and may sell for 5m to free money,he wud then target 1 or 2 strikers to replace him and Prso(leaving end of season) These wud be Naismith/Diouf? and Freddy Eastwood.PlG may also purchase a few unknown french players if left over cash is available.

Lastly Hearts will sell Gordon most likly in the summer to Arsenal or Man U.The Scotland GK will cost 3m and wud replace Lehmann or Van Der Sarr and become their no.1

Spl In the NOReal Madrid News

This comes from a pretty reliabe source, unlike some who just exaggerate. Ronaldo to Rangers, don't be silly mate.

Out: Antonio Cassano (Inter Milan - 4/5mill), Paco Pavon (Real Zaragoza - 4mill), Woodgate (Liverpool - 5mill), Salgado or Cincinho (Tottenham/Roma - 7mill), Beckham (MLS/Bayern Munich - 5mill, Hopefully Carlos (Fenerbache/Juventus - 2mill)

GUTI will stay as he has been pure class this year, without a doubt Madrids best player, and best player in Spain this year.

Ins: Phillipe Mexes (11mill), Cristain Chivu (7mill), Gago (9mill), Higuian (5mill), Arjen Robben (15mill), Kaka/Van der Varrt (30mill/12mill), Lennon (16mill), Pizzaro (8mill + Becks)

This will happen between january and summer, about 4 of these players are nearly done deals.

InSUFC signings Will be Haminu Dramani-RW-Red Star Belgrade-£1.2 million And Dexter Blackstock-SC-QPR-£700k and possibly a new GKPlymouth Argyle News!

After selling Ricksen to Zenit for just over 1 million, Le Guen has swooped for Jason Culina, 1 million from PSV. The big Aussie who plays in centre mid, will arrive in January. Le Guen will target the problem right back slot and goalkeeper in the summer. He is looking to spend the vast majority of his January kitty on a striker.
