Football Rumours Archive January 03 2010


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

To the guy who wrote of the big changes at Liverpool, I must say as an Arsenal fan very interesting to read, however Vela would not be allowed to leave the Emirates. Wenger sees Vela as one of the hottest young properties in Europe and would lose an arm and a leg before selling him. Couple of rumours of my own.

City to sell:
Wayne Bridge – no confidence, weakest link in City's defence
Roinho – heart is in moving to Barca – Ibrahimovic swap deal is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, Barca would not let him go
Santa Cruz – biggest surprise departure after summer move but with Mark Hughes went the Paraguay striker's interest in playing for City – Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool and Man United will show interest
Comming in:
Philip Lahm – one of the world's great full–backs, cheap fee (£12m)
Ivan Cordoba – good relationship with Mancini, out of favour at Inter (£6m)
Angel Di Maria – biggest signing of the window, breaking British transfer record (£35m)
Edin Dzeko – better finisher than Adebayor, will partner Tevez (£20m)
Zabaleta Toure Lescott/Cordoba Lahm
SWP Barry (CDM) Di Maria (CAM) Bellamy
Tevez Dzeko

Spurs will offer Jermaine Jenas and David Bentley for Ashley Young – which will be accepted by Villa who have Downing and Milner so losing Young would be no big deal

West Ham:
West Ham's 'big four' players will all leave in January
Carlton Cole – Arsenal or Liverpool (£12m)
Scott Parker – Tottenham (£8m)
Matthew Upson – Man City or Spurs (£15m)
Rob Green – Man United (£6m)

In Arsene We Trust


Rafa has been given until the end of the season to turn things around. However the Americans are far from happy at the chance of falling away from Top 4 so they have allowed Rafa to spend in Jan. The figure is between 8–11 mill. All on Rafa's list are.. Carlton Cole, John Carew, David Bentley, Scott Parker, Gareth Barry, RVN, RVD, Luca Toni, Victor Moses and Maxi Rodriguez. Personally i expect to see either Parker or Barry come in, Maxi Rodriguez and a striker. Not sure on striker. But Babel WILL be sold. Dont believe Benitez's claims he's wanted. Hes just trying to keep up the players value. Jose Mourinho also has an offer to join Liverpool at end of season. Not sure who he wants but its clear he will have money to spend so also don't believe rumours Gerrard is off to Inter. Not true. Hopefully Welcome Jose!


Jose Mourinho to Liverpool end of season.

Hibs News...

Anthony Stokes to sign for Celtic next week, Tony Mowbray wants him to partner Scott McDonald upfront for the remainder of the season, no money will be involved as Chris Killen & Wilo Flood will be part of the deal, also Leicester City will recall Paul Dickov back from Derby County where he's on–loan as John Hughes is wants to take the striker to Easter Road but the £100,000 that Leicester want for him could be a stumbling block, also expect Stoke City to come in with a bid of around £400,000 for Sol Bamba & Middlesbrough to tempt Hibs with an offer for Derek Riordan
THE BIG MAN (he's in the know)


So many rumours, so little time. Wheat from the chaff etc. Pure fantasy, living in dreams ville.
So many LFC rumours of a team in decline, all paid far too much money and they don't need to achieve anything. LFC will be tempted to take the money for Torres, and as a Villa fan, I wish MON would buy him, but alas, not enough cash in the kitty.
Some dreamer has actually the temerity to believe that MON will buy Carlton Cole!! What planet do you hail from? When he was at VP before, he was a body on the pitch, how many goals did he score? If you hold up the fingers on one hand you will have a couple left over. At VP we need a proven goal scorer, not another player. There are plenty of players at VP but not enough scorers. Listing, Robbie Keane, probably the only one that MON would be prepared to lay out cash for. All the others would be mega bucks. MON likes to buy around £9m. and would be hard pressed to go any further. Randy Lerner has the funds but MON knows that he must not waste the money. Several of his buys have not established themselves, Reo, Sidwell, Storey, Harewood etc £25m+ down the drain. And then there is Heskey. So much ability but never used fully. There is a list of clubs willing to offer for him according to the scuttle butt, but are they really goin g to put up for a guy who only uses 25% of his talents. Sadly fellow Villa fans we are not going to see Torres at VP unless LFC beat Reading and then draw Villa, and hopefully we will not see Cole, Beattie or some of the other names being banded around. Just the same faces that adorn the dressing room at present. 6th again this year looks a cert. Get real!!!


Burnley to appoint Lee Clark on thursday FACT


To the muppet that said LFC would sign Maynor Figueroa for £6m… Sunderland have just had an £8m for him turned down… OOPS!


Sorry Spurs fans, the news in Brazil is that Sandro is not going to Spurs this month. He is having problems with getting a visa and Inter want to keep him until the summer. Even though he is aleged to have agreed personal terms, Inter are not keen to let him go, worse still he doesn't seem that keen on the move either.
I think its a case of putting himself in the shop window for another club.


Fabio Capello to take over as Manchester United manager at the start of next season.


Aston Villa 2010


M.Richards (Wants guaranteed 1st team football)
Wes Brown (Wants guaranteed 1st team football)

G.Barry (Is not happy at the way City is run)

C.Cole (saved from West Ham financial ruin, and is an adequate replacement for the aging Carew)

– Jzustkin Tzhenowski, Polish Aston Villa Supporter


Patrick agyemang asking for a move away from QPR. His boyhood club are aparantly in talk with his agent. The club is Yeovil town. information from a top football agent


Arsenal youngstar JACK WILSHERE is on the move to OWEN COYLE side BURNLEY 4 the rest of the season.

and ...
WEST HAM are goin 2 sWAP CHELSEA'S KEEPER PETR CECH 4 ROBERT GREEN + 7Mill because ANCELOTTI has fell out with PETR CECH saying he is letting in 2 many goals


If LFC fail to finish in the top 4 then Torres will be leaving. Man City are lining up a £100 million bid for Torres in the summer (Although he isn't worth this much). If Torres is sold then Rafa will walk out of the Liverpool job.


Tottenham ins:
ashley young–£cash+jenas)
micah richards(has been given permission to talk to spurs)
sandro(waiting for work permit)

tottenham outs:
jenas(part of the deal for ashley young)
dos santos(on loan to ipswitch)
keane(sunderland or celtic)

also two shock moves for tottenham:
beckford for an estimated £3million rising to £5.5million
victor moses(however liverpool, arsenal and man city are said to be interested)

also an addition to the staff is jamie redknapp on a part time timetable as midfield assistant coach.


Rafa has told Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid that Javier Mascherano how much he worth:
Barcelona=Sergio Busquets+Pedro Rodrνguez+Bojan Krkić plus £15m.
Real Madrid=Karim Benzema+Ezequiel Garay+Lassana Diarra.
Most likely he is going to Real Madrid.


The only english club Rafael Van der Vaart will take a loan deal to join would be arsenal or united. however the interest of both clubs is tempered by the fact that he is cup–tied and therefore not of much use going into the busy winter months. Also anyone who remembers when he left Hamburg for Madrid a couple seasons back will remember how much the influence of his wife plays and her desire to live in either italy or spain. unless he takes a loan only till summer with the intention of signing a deal with another italian/spanish club in summer. {editor's note – actually it was his wife's need of treatment that meant he could not go to Italy. The only countries with top class facilities to deal with her condition were Spain, Germany or the UK. He rejected a number of Italian clubs in the summer because of that.}


A delighted Malcolm Shaffer checking in, with some whispered words over the phone to share:
Premier League strugglers West Ham United are indeed about to line up new part–owners David Sullivan and David Gold to inject some much needed success and, more importantly these days, money into the club's kitty. However, I hear most of this will be absorbed by outstanding debts and loans. Transfer targets; getting to the point, could then include Newcastle reject Peter Lovenkrands and possibly Graham Dorrans. I gather this one will have something to do with the relationship between messrs Di Matteo and Zola from the olden days. I really hope so anyway; it does me proud to see talented players leave yo–yo clubs for proper ones. Although, as Frank Skinner will doubtless remind me, West Ham have yo–yoed a little themselves in recent seasons... Lets say no more of that shall we.
In other news, Liverpool, Manchester United (whoever they are tehe) and Portsmouth will be among the low spenders once more as Mancini dominates the arrivals and departures lounge. Ryan Shawcross is not to be drawn to Eastlands though, I'm hearing. That sounded pretty definate.
And to the man of the moment, Simon Grayson. Don't worry Mancs, I won't have a rant, I'm trying to get on the rumours page here. But one of my mates has told me that Grayson's 'two or three' transfer targets this January are, rather unsurprisingly in my opinion, Max Gradel, Owain Fon Williams and Wes Hoolahan. Personally, I think Hoolahan is very unlikely, with Gradel likely to fill a similar role, so I offer that one with scepticism, despite Norwich's financial troubles. I'm sure Delia will cook him up something special to keep him in Norfolk. Having won at Old Trafford, there is sure to be money available at Elland Road anyway. If Mr. Bates decides to release it.
And a friendly shout out to Mr. Alex Ferguson. There was plenty of stoppage time. MS


Tottenham Ins

Ashley Young 8 mil plus Jenas
Micah Richards 10 mil

Fact! you heard it here first!


Jermaine beckford to arsenal


All these player are linked with Liverpool

Arda Turan– midfield– Galatasaray
Milan Jovanovic– striker– Standard Liege
Ivan Gonzalez– defender– Malaga
Victor Moses– winger– Crystal Palace


Simon Church to Liverpool.


Commons to forest? don't make me laugh you loser all the players you have signed so far are rejects from their previous clubs.
Derby ins:–
Mackie 500k
Lee Johnson 800k
St. Ledger 1.5mil
Dickov 200k
Derby outs:–
Connolly 250k
Hulse 2.5mil
Varney loan

There will be alot of loans signing but none are for definate.


Commons to forest.... he hates forest now and he always will from now on. Earnshaw realises there is no foundations at forest and will take a transfer to newcastle or middesborough. expect youngsters and players woth pace in at derby and alot of loan signings.


Liverpool will make atleast one majoritly big signing this market, Most likely to be Maxi Rodriguez. Expect a few sneeky small signings of some smaller players in lower leagues. Moses hasn't been payed by palace which is breeching his contract, If he doesn't get paid he has the choice to quit and go to any team he likes. Rafa has expressed intrest in the young winger, expect some talks between the group.

Ruud and Van Der Vaart rumours are just small talk, nothing much will happen because rafa hasn't expressed an intrest in Ruud and Vdv has said he want's to stay and prove Madrid wrong. He will more than likely be used as a weight for a Ribery deal in the summer.


A rumour which was widely spread around parkhead at todays old firm game was that tony mowbray will quit celtic as he can't cope with the pressure and because his family are down south, he wants to be with them more often. He will be replace by none other than Owen Coyle. He is in glasgow just now and personally, if mowbray was to leave, he is my number 1 choice and is more than able to be a better manager than mowbray at celtic. With Coyle coming up, he has demanded a transfer kitty of £15 million which he will recieve. He will bring jack wilshere on loan from arsenal and will also bring robbie keane on loan until end of the season. He wants to buy Steven Caldwell to partner brother Gary(if he stays) and wants to pay Tottenham Hotspurs £7.5 million for roman pavlyuchenko. This will total up to about £10 million and with the remaining £5 million, he will take a gamble on two foreign players, and a dutch u–17 international. One of the foreign players is Giroud–who will go back on loan to his current club and then officially join in the summer. The other foreigner is someone who's name evades me but his club want £3 million for him so he must be decent enough. With these extra recruits, Celtic will win the league back with ease especially as we already have the best asian player–KI SUNG YEUNG. As it was proven today(sunday) all we need is a natural finisher(keano pavlyuchenko). Coyle will only offload fringe players who don't get a game(flood etc), however he is keen to keep mcginn, mccourt and caddis.


Sir Alex to retire.

The giveaway sign is his red nose, he's drinking too much and the pressure is getting to him. He's had enough


Forest are to sign notts county goalkeeper kasper schmeichel and kris commons in jan window


This will be long I'm afraid but fascinating for all Liverpool fans.

I have delivered rare wines to a certain very high profile European manager for a number of years but whose name I will not reveal as he has become a good friend of mine.

He has been sounded out about taking the Liverpool job in the summer which excites him greatly and he and I had a discussion about what he would do were he to take charge.

He believes the playing staff are fairly rotten beyond a half dozen individuals and some promising youngsters.

Key changes he'd anticipate making are:

Mascherano out. He believes the player's heart is clearly in Spain and is fundamentally against keeping players who do not have 100% commitment, particularly with a sale value approaching £40m. Likely destinations = Real Madrid, Barcelona.

Aquilani out. He was shocked Benitez bought him in the first place, not because of lack of quality but due to his abysmal injury record. He'd take quite a hit on the price Rafa paid – selling him for around £13m.

Kuyt out. He does not rate Kuyt, seeing him as little more than a long distance runner who plays football. Again, a decent sale value of around £11m.

Benayoun out. He recognises the fine form the player has showed this year in contrast to most of his team–mates but believes this actually makes it a good time to cash in. He'd be sold for around the £10m mark.

Babel out. He likes Babel but fears he has a psychological issue with playing for Liverpool which will be hard to overcome. He believes he'd be better off sold with a likely price of around £8.5m.

Lucas out. He actually laughs when he talks about Lucas. He's staggered he's even in the Premiership never mind a top four club. However he clearly has something some managers admire and would be sold for approx £6m.

Aurelio out. He likes Aurelio's touch and dead ball delivery but thinks his defending is cowardly at times. With his contract running down he'd flog him for around the £5m mark.

Dossena out. He does not believe he can settle in England but would be happier back in Italy with a price of around £4m fetched.

Voronin out. He thinks he doesn't have what it takes to play for a major club in a major league. He'd raise around £3m.

Degen out. He thinks Degen is ok but would rather bring in players who he really rates and would take the £2m Degen would fetch.

Kyrgiakos out. He recognises he was an emergency back up solution but believes there are some clubs out there who would take him for around £1m.

The players he really rates and would like to tie down are:

Torres (inevitably), Gerrard (inevitably), Reina (inevitably), Agger, Skrtel and Johnson.

He believes Johnson, Skrtel and Agger are potentially world class but have lost confidence under Benitez who does not allow his defenders to play.

Gerrard would return to a central midfield role to dominate the play as he used to.

Carragher would take a less prominent role and if this did not suit him, the manager would pay due respect to his brilliant service to the club by accepting a reduced fee of around £3–5m for him. Ideally though he'd love to keep him in the squad.

He really rates Kelly and Plessis of the young crop and they could expect more playing time.

Other players retained for squad purposes would be Cavalieri, Darby, Insua, Ngog, Spearing, El Zhar, Pacheco, Ayala, Nemeth and a few other youngsters.

As you can see this would be a comprehensive overhaul but he believes this is necessary if the club is to be restored to a genuine title challenger.

From these sales he'd raise around about £100m. The owners would supplement this with around £30m (more money always available to new managers as a goodwill gesture).

This £130m would amount to a considerable war chest. So who would he bring in?

He said it's difficult to know how players are inclined to moving to the north of England, what their families want, what contractual bonuses they'd forfeit should they leave etc but ideally would be looking at purchasing the following:

Lassana Diarra. Similar enegry levels to Mascherano; great bite in the tackle but a far better ball player. Around £22m.

Rafael van der Vaart. Class act and potentially avialable for a good price. He'd play mainly left side midfield but could also play centrally and up front. Around £13m.

Aaron Lennon. This would be his major signing. He believes he is the most exciting young talent in England and believes he could sell Liverpool to him. He'd pay around £25m.

Carlton Cole. He wants someone who'd create space for Torres and hold the ball up. He thinks like many big strikers Cole will reach his peak around 30, so could have seven good years in him. With West Ham under pressure to raise money he thinks he'd get him for around £15m.

At left back he'd like to sign Aly Cissokho of Lyon but fears he would be too expensive. As such he'd swoop for Maynor Figueroa. A talented left back, with good bite, pace and a good age. He thinks he'd get his man for £6m.

This would leave a first choice XI of:


With £49m left.

Additional squad purchases might be:

Micah Richards. The manager was hugely impressed when he first arrived on the scene and is convinced he could allow him to recapture some form. He'd be cover at right back and centre half. He sees Johnson as a potential right winger and defensive midfielder as well as right back. Richards would cost around £7m (possibly with some performance–related extras).

David Bentley. Again he sees him as someone with ability who has lost confidence. He'd back up Lennon and the manager also thinks he could do what Milner has done and dictate play from a central role. He thinks Spurs would sell for £5m.

John Carew. At 30 he thinks Carew would prove a bargain buy at around £5m.

Carlos Vela. Vela is now 20 and still not getting much of a chance at Arsenal where he is 5th choice striker and likely to drop further down the pecking order with Wenger set to recruit to cover Van Persie's injury. At Liverpool he'd be immediate back up to Torres with Carew backing up Cole. He'd cost around £7m (with add ons).

Martin Petrov. He's getting more of a look–in at City under Ancelotti but at almost 31 could be recruited for around £3.5m.

Victor Moses. He recognises the wisdom in taking gambles on the best of the Championship's players as Moyes has done at Everton (Cahill, Lescott, Jagielka etc). He'd pay the £5m Palace want.

Danny Murphy. He'd exploit Murphy's emotional ties with the club and bring him back for around £3.5m. Along with Carew, Petrov etc and with such a large squad overhaul he'd need professionals with Murphy's experience.

Nadir Belhadj. With Portsmouth about to blow, he thinks Belhadj could be recruited for around £4m to cover left back and left midfield.

Scott Parker. Again, recognising West Ham's finacial woes, he'd take Parker for around £7m, which West Ham would see as good money for a 29 year old.

As you can see most players would be recruited who have Premiership experience, something my friend sees as crucial.

Squad for 2010/11 (if the manager takes over and things turn out as he wishes).

– The Gossip – {editor's note – I will put this up but I think it is utter bull ..... it clearly is meant to be referring to Jose Mourinho but I doubt very much a man who is as renowned for doing his homework as Jose is, would not realise that Aurelio is out of contract in the summer so could not be sold for 3–5 pence let alone 3–5 million pounds}


Coventry will lose leon best to west brom for 1.5m and leon barnett.
But will then Sign stockports Carl Baker for a undisclosed fee, Plus a Aron McLean move is still on the cards


Apparently Maxi Rodriguez's switch to Anfield has been stalled due to Ath Madrid's desire to sell him for straight up cash and Benitez's desire to loan him with an option to buy. He will probably now move to Boca Juniors in order to cement a place in the Argentina World Cup Squad.

Dundee United to annouce Jimmy Calderwood as the next manager in a few days.


Liverpool News:
Babel is not leaving in this transfer window as Benitez has guaranteed him more chances.
Voronin, Dossenna and Degen are all leaving because Rafa is sure he has the right back up with Darby at Right Back until JOhnson is back.
Maxi Rodriguez deal is already done, as well as the pre–contract agreement for the summer. Ruud Van Nistlerooy will not got o Liverpool because of his fitness record and a few panic buys can be expected with any money from sold players most likely a striker, central midfielder and centre back.


Lfc to sign van nistelrooy and maxi rodriguez on loan next few days! just watch!!


Been told from a good source that lee hughes to leave notts county in jan to an unnamed championship side for 1 million


Arsenal appear certain to sign one of Gignac or C.Cole. Liverpool are not looking to offload Babel, according to Benitez.


Man united rumors

first of all they won't b singing a new defender the only way sir alex will do that if a world class defender only wants a three month contract however they will b singnin a new keeper and that keeper will b manuel neuer for around 15 million and all this rubbish bout chamkh and singin a pre contract if ny1 signs him its arsenal and man united will also bid for sergio aguero 25 million plus berbatov


Manchester City News.

Jose Mourinho will become City's Manager in the summer FACT. He's had an offer he can't refuse and the biggest incentive large salary and lots of cash to spend on players. City needed Mancini to remove Hughes. city insiders were worried about Hughes moving across to United once he had a taste of success.


A reliable source who told me that Tevez would sign for City before any body else has just told me Chelsea are considering a 25 million double sweep for Lyon Keeper Hugo LLoris and Spurs winger Aaron Lennon.
Watch this space!!


Celtic will let the following players leave in january

killen loan

sol campbell is also a target but won't happen with wages to high

st ledger will be heading to celtic park for game against rankgers and deal will be done on wednesday


Barcelona will not buy Ronaldo for £80m plus Henry & Bojan because Ronaldo's contract has a £350 million buy out claus in it... Same with Ibrahimovich so City won't be going for him.
United will offer Rooney a new 5 year deal worth £140,000 a week. If he turns this down then SAF will have no choice but to sell him. Barcelona claim to be ready to make a £85 million bid for him in the summer whereas Real Madrid claim to have a £60 million plus Benzema lined up for Rooney.
United will be offering £25 million plus Nani to Benfica for their hot talent Angel Di Maria. Benfica have already said that he has only just signed a new contract with a £40m buy out claus in it. SAF thinks using Nani as bait might work though. If this fails then £25m will be offered to Valencia for David Silva and Nani will be sold to possibly another team in Portugal.


Yep Stoke have had an offer accepted for Scott Parker and his injury not as bad as originally thought. As for leaving West Ham for Stoke– no probs there. Why would he want to stay at a debt ridden club heading for the CCC? Wet Sham going to be busy in Jan selling whoever they can as they prepare for QPR next season etc


Ronaldo will not go to Barcelona. He has finally had his dream of playing for real Madrid recognized and is enjoying great success at real Madrid. Plus, he would disrupt the chemistry of pep guardiolas team. My brother is friends with ronaldos agent so this is true. Real will try to sign Rooney but fail. They will then Try to sign him again for 65 million+garay but fail.


Suprise move barry to liverpool 10mill funded by babel 10mill move. if that deal falls through parker to liverpool 8mill.
maxi, vdv, rvn to liverpool on loan till summer.
upson and turan also to liverpool.
riera , dossena, skrtel, voronin, babel to leave.


Luke Holden will move from Rhyl to Notts. County for £50,000.

Sven has been impressed with Luke and wants to add Chris Sharp (son of Graeme Sharp) to the ranks at ML as well.


News 4 Pompey fans...

Well we have the bridging loan in place, so we can pay players this month (touch wood)....

However, the club is now over £20m in debt and is headed for meltdown. I have heard that unless there is a new owner and the slate wiped clean by June 1st 2010 the club is going to be kicked out of the Football League and will have to start from non–league (a groundshare with Havant & Waterlooville has been suggested here, with Portsmouth becoming Portsmouth City FC and playing in the Conference, or Havant & Waterlooville could change their name to Portsmouth United).


Sir alex will not be buying ny one this winter but..
Expect mig money signings in d summer
St–benzema or villa

Manchester United.

Sources indicating that Dimitar Berbatov will be leaving to Valencia in a part–exchange deal to sign David Silva and David Villa are not true.

Macheda will be going on a 6 month loan deal to Ipswich. (Sir Alex Ferguson doing a favour for ex–collegue, Roy Keane)

Nemanja Vidic will be staying at United at least for another year and a half despite claims from Real Madrid that they will place a £20m bid.

Wayne Rooney has for a second time, stated that he would sign a 10–year contract at United in a flash if it would ever be possible. This is also depsite claims from Real Madrid that they will be making an £80m bid.

Just going to address some of these these laughable rumours... KALOU!?! Now, Wenger has shown interest in this player before, so its understandable that this rumour might surface again. However, why the hell would Wenger – whos been forced into buying another striker due to injuries – purchase arguably the least clinical striker in the league (after Bendtner) during the African Nations? Hes a player that won't have much of an effect on the pitch, and even if he was capable of having a title altering effect on our game, he won't be able to make that effect til hes back from the African Nations... IN ONE MONTH! This simply won't happen... Thank God!!!

The Chamakh deal is dead in the water, hes already been quoted in saying that he won't consider a move away from his club until his conract expires in the summer.

Huntelaar is a possibility, a little unlinely though as it would be his third club this season. Hes probably more likely to get a loan back to Holland. Hes a proven striker, but unfortunately only in one league, so going back to that league to smash in 30 goals in the second half of the season would be good preparation for the world cup.

Andre Pierre Gignac, now this I see as the most likely. The pacey 6ft2 striker would do te job as a loan striker. Last season he bagged 24 goals in the league last, so hes proven but still without that big rep, and that coupled with the fact that he has only scored 5 in the league this season could see him leave Toulous for a very reasonable Wenger price. £12–14m maybe?

Wenger won't be stregnthening in any other area... so WHY am I reading rumours of Wenger being interested in buying a certain inflated price french individual that currently plays in the Germany. Ribery... this deal is finished, let me correct myself, there was never deal started... its not gonna happen! And certainly not for a fee plus play swap, and that player being SONG!!! Thats just insane! Hes been our best player this season and he aint goin nowhere!

Nothing but FACT.

Liverpool have 24 months to raise the sufficent cash or risk going into the procedures which may lead to administration.

Chelsea will NOT be buying in January Carlo has belief in his youth coming through.

Arsenal will sign Giovinco from Juventus for 8 Million + Silvestre & Senderos.

Manchester United will EITHER sign Ben Arfa on a 6 month loan OR Negotiate a loan swap which will see Angel De Maria come to united in exchange for Nani (18 month) and Macheda (6 month). we will also see in the summer Benzema going to Manchester United for £17 million

now for the shocker of the new decade. June 2010.
Barcelona will sign CRISTIANO RONALDO! from Real Madrid for £80 Million + Bojan + Henry with Real getting a further 40% sales add on for future sale (exceptionally high). also they have first refusal on Yaya Toure.


Jones is away from sunderland and bruce is gonna replace him with the yak from everton . another one altogether though buffon to man utd


I hear wenger is lining up a shock deal for ronaldo in the hope he can get back in the brazil squad for the world cup


HI everyone, posted on her last time in the summer to inform you all of Everton trying to sign JO for another loan deal, as well as their interest in a Russain winger– in the summer.

Just to let you know that Everton asked about Van der Vaart (sp?)on loan with an option to buy, but the offer was rejected by the player. There is more optimism though over a Fernandes loan though.

The biggest shock of all though, is that Moyes believes he has enough defensive cover for now so will not be signing anyone for defence!!



Andrew Driver will sign for Cardiff in the next few days, before Joe Ledley departs for Everton for £4.5m


Man Utd will sign Rangers striker Kris Boyd for £1m.


Did anyone else think Gareth Barry looked a little on the portly side today? Ive heard he is deeply unhappy and regretting his move to ManC and feels the behind scenes match preparation/fitness programmes etc aren't as good as he might have expected for a "Champions League" side. Ive heard a small whisper that both Spurs and Arsenal are planning to test the waters with bids to see what the fallout/reaction is

Ive also heard the "Arsene to City at the end of the season" rumour – but I just can't see it – its not his colour – does it have any credibility or is it just to wind Ferguson up? Anyone got any more inside info on this one?

Finally the rumour of Jenas to Villa is def on the cards – Harry and Martin discussed this last summer and it has just been delayed til January for squad cover purposes.


Hello Guys, Some REAL Transfers for you !!

Kris Boyd will sign a 3 year extension to his current deal, heard it here first, I am on the coaching staff at Murray Park.

"Sir" Walter Smith as we call him shall be leaving in the summer, with none other than Jimmy Calderwood taking over as manager, done deal, all agreed last month.

Now, transfers, Davis back to Fulham for around the 4 million mark, price still to be agreed, but that's the regen.

Big Bougey will be off to Spurs, once again 4 – 5 million will seal the deal.

Talk around Murray Park is that Walters old pal Sir Alex shall be sending Nani and Richae De Laet on loan. Nani hasnt settled in and Fergie thinks that the SPL is a great place to bulk up, fish and chips eh lads ?.

Also been told that Hamsik will be at old trafford come the summer, and that Berba will be off to Valencia for a swap deal involving Villa, with Silva already a done deal for after the world cup.

You Heard this here first, now watch it unfold !

Jose Mourinho Wants Steven Gerrard For £40Million To Inter


Expect Boca Juniors to announce the signing of Maxi Rodriguez from Atletico Madrid on the next couple of days. He will not be moving to Liverpool. Sharkey.


All these transfers to Liverpool....not going to happen. I think your forgetting the serious financial debt most clubs, including Liverpool, are in. The only clubs making transfers will be middle teams who will sign mediocre players. bar that is arsenal. they will sign one striker, no midfielder, youth players already in zezinho and wellington silva. MAYBE a defender but doubtfull. The striker is unknown yet


Boycie, Boyo...

Doubt Cardiff will be signing anybody after the News Of The World story broke.

The only way Cardiff will stay in business is if Adam Matthews is sold THIS WEEK for £5m.



Paul Lambert's Norwich City are looking to sign a striker and central defender alongside the signing of current loanees Russell Martin and Anthony McNamee. Rumour has it the striker could be Southend's Lee Barnard, Leeds' Tresor Kandol or Ipswich's Kevin Lisbie.

The central defender is proving harder to pin down, although Wycombe's Chris Westwood is rumoured to be one Lambert has had watched alongside Carlisle's Danny Livesey and Barnet's Ismail Yakubu.


Maxi rodriguez off to boca ....gutted


All go at Walsall. Aaron MacLean's £3m move to Brum will trigger a £350k + add on bid from Posh for Troy Deeney. Talk of £600k is way OTT, WFC will accept half of that.

Walsall have signed Clayton McDonald as Forest are looking at a £100k bid for Manny Smith, Walsall holding out for £200k.

Hutchings looking at Keates' return on O'Connors recommendation. Hutchings' also looking at Chris Wood, tall striker from the Albion on loan till seasons end if Deeney does go.

That's all for now folks, y'know I love ya.


This is serious, heard 4rm a reliable source that wenger is sending a scout over 2 nigeria to test and interview 3 wonderstars two fowarders nd a midfielder their names are john barilella nyone, victor dashe and jerry mshelia this will be huge cos they are hidden stars and i av watched their games and they are the future world best cotestants. in wenger we trust.
