Toure to Ac for £6 million?

Vela to Tottenham?

is this a rumour site– it sounds more like fantasy/comedy.

Tottenham will never sign tons of top quality players all at once, they will sign 5/6 good players to get them to the top 6 and then next Summer they will complement those 5/6 good players with 2/3 quality players eg. villa, Auguro etc.

Arsenal will bring in 4/5good players, 1gk, 2defs, 1winger and a forward the candidates are,

utarsi and hart

LeScott, Mexes and Onougha

Silva, Kranjar, Nasri and Ben Afra

Bojan, Pandev or Abonglahoar

  MAN UNITED – Expect to see one of these players each next year at Old Trafford. Forwards: Bafetimbi Gomis (Saint–Etienne around £10 million), Klaas–Jan Huntelaar (AJAX around £20 million), Sergio Agüero (Atl. Mad. around £20 million), Karim Benzema (Oly. Lyon around £30 million), Steven Fletcher (Hibernian around £5 million) Midfielders: Miguel Veloso (Sporting Lisb. around £14 million), Pereirinha (Sporting Lisb. around £8 million) Aiden McGeady (G. Celtic around £10 million) Defenders: Philip Lahm (Bayern Munich around £10 million) Glenn Johnson (Portsmouth around £8 million).

  Carson wants his future settled, and he's said several times already this season that He would rather be playing at Aston Villa than sitting on the bench at Liverpool. Liverpool have so far been reluctant to let Carson go, and it is rumoured that if Benitez cannot convince Carson to stay at Anfield, he would then ask for around £10 million (recent rumours put it at £9 million).

So far, this matter seemed to be something to be decided in the Summer – but the latest transfer rumours suggest that Aston Villa will not match Liverpool's valuation and if Carson was to return from Aston Villa to Liverpool, a host of other clubs (Arsenal? ) would be interested, with Tottenham being the obvious choice given their much–talked about goalkeeping troubles.

Tottenham will do well to capture Carson – he's consistent and reliable, two attributes you cannot apply to current Tottenham keeper Paul Robinson. He's also young and a potential England #1, so if anything else this is a keeper who is only going to go up in the Premier League and Tottenham will be better off with Carson manning the goal as compared to Robinson.

"Big Rumours at Villa Park"

  now for some REAL rumours that have circulated across Europe. Arsenal will probably go for Diane for 5–6 million, Chelsea will have to sell as players are getting restless so expect Sidwell and maybe Bridge to Newcastle. Man United need a Striker? I thik Ronaldos doing a good enough job to be honest expect Lahm to be filtered in sooner rather than later. Liverpool will try there best to get D Alves and probably Fabiano and finally looks like Villa are trying to sign Ashton and I could see that happening. Also expect Barce to sign an entire new back line with the likes of Vanden Borre and Heitinga wanting moves.

  Sol Campbell reportedly wants to leave Portsmouth this Summer with Villareal poised to seal his services. Harry Redknapp will replace him with £8 million centre back John Mensah from Rennes. However Mensah is more likely to be keen about the move if Portsmouth seal UEFA Cup football via the FA Cup. He will also look to bring in a new stiker as he is not that keen about making Milan Baros' move permanent. Peter Crouch will become his top target and he would look to make the siging for around £9 million.

  Roy Keane to be given £40–50 million in Summer to take us to the next level (Europe)

He will strengthen the defense with: Wes Brown Free, Richard Dunne £5.5 million, Evans £4.5 million

Strikers: Forlan £14 million and Roberts £3.5 million

D. Ward Free

Halford £2 million

Miller £1.5 million

Kavanagh £300K

Connoly £400K

Stokes Loan

Waghorn Loan

  There is going to be two shock arrivals at Anfield 1 Arteta and 2 Keane of Tottenham both want to be regular internationals and in Keanes case he wants to be captain

  Werder Bremen have expressed an interest in re–signing Claudio Pizarro from Chelsea in the Summer. Chelsea have launched a £7 million bid for 20–year–old Uruguayan centre back Martin Caceres from Recreativo Huelva. Chelsea are looking to Stuttgart forward Mario Gomez to beef up their forward line next season. Chelsea are continuing to run the rule over Ajax's £18 million–rated forward Klaas–Jan Huntelaar.


  Fenerbache manager Zico could be installed as the manager of national team, Brazil in the Summer.

  La Liga trio Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Villareal are chasing Liverpool winger Yossi Benayoun. –MB–

  Portsmouth FC Rumours:


Carlos Kameni (Espanyol) – 7 Mill

John Mensah (Rennes) – 6 Mill

Akor Buzsaky (Queens Park Rangers) – 2 Mill


Sol Campbell (Villarreal) – 3 Mill

David Nugent (Ipswich) – 5 Mill

Many youngsters to go out on LOAN

  LIVERPOOL– have already signed three players for next year, 2 youth players–who could be from anywhere and one 'senior player'. This is rumoured to be Rafinha (RB) for a fee of about £12 million pound.

Only Aguero and maybe Bentley to come in the Summer. as no huge transfer kitty will be given as everyone on here believes.

ARSENAL– will sign three players at the very most in the Summer, as all those people with brains will understand, Wenger does not spend big, so why would he change. Ben Afra will be bought, and a centre back to replace Senderos, a forward will not be brought in as Vela will be returning and if V. Persie stays fit, he shud hav enuff choices.

CHELSEA– expect a mass exodus of players to leave Chelsea in the Summer, including Drogba, Shevchenko, Sidwell, Pizzarro, Bridge etc. Coming in will be a quality forward, to support Anelka upfront. Maybe Pirlo will arrive at the bridge also. Do not expect Ronaldinho to be playing in a blue shirt next year, as he has stated he hates the kind of football Chelsea play, if he does move to the EPL, expect White Heart Lane to be his detination

UNITED– will get rid of a few dead–wood players like Brown, Saha etc. An bring in only 1 0r 2 quality players. Do not expect Benzema to arrive, why would Ferguson want anotha attacker wen he has the likes of Ronaldo, Rooney, Tevez etc.

  Chris Coleman could win the race to sign Freddie Eastwood for £2.5 million in the Summer. The former Southend forward will join Coventry in July.

  News from the Lane– a lot of players will be ousted in the Summer, and a a lot brought in to begin the Ramos Revoluotion. David Villa is on the top of the list, but will not be cheap. Awinger is also wanted, but there are too many possibilities to list. the possible addition of Ronaldinho will add flair to the midfeild, and a good keeper will boost the defense instead of the dodgy Robinson. apparently there is a deal which is being organised, were Robinson will go to the Hammers and Green coming the other way. Dawson to be replaced as will Chimbonda–possibly by D Alves (Ramos has good relationship with him) Lennon could be on his way out– going to Blackburn, after Bentley makes his way to Anfield. D. bent could also move away from the lane, with the Hammers tipped as the club he will join.

  NEWS FROM THE LANE, oh look another prediction we got right according to todays papers ARTETA may have to leave Goodison to gain international status (we told you this two weeks ago), JR will make an offer but the player will problem go home, according to this site LIVERPOOL will in the Summer be buying around 60 players lol, THREE PLAYERS WHO will not BE JOINING THE MASS INFLUX TO LIVERPOOL ARE BENTLEY (wants TO RETURN HOME TO LONDON, IS ANFIELD A SUBBURB OF LONDON? HE will not REJOIN ARSENAL DUE TO HIS PAST CONNECTION WITH WENGER), the next being DAVID VILLA it's funny how limited the KNOWLEDGE Anfield rumours are by some Liverpool supporters AS VILLA HAS STATED HE wants TO PLAY FOR JR THE Deal IS ALL but done AND JUST AWAITES THE PLAYERS SIGNATURE, so as the Liverpool fans will keep saying that those two players will join Liverpool I can say TOTTENHAM will not SELL SO SOON AFTER BUYING THEM. the other player in question is AARON RAMSEY WHO wants to join his mates IE BALE and GUNTER, Other rumours O'HARA will stay at WHL although LENNON a subject of speculation regarding NEWCASTLE will JOIN ANFIELD due to the arrival of BENTLEY. ps to Liverpool fans if you really really want Bentley and Villa in the famous red of Liverpool. buy a playstation.

  Should Chester City fail in their ambitious bid to bring Danny Murphy to the club, they may turn to former assistant Steve Bleasdale in the search for a new manager.

Bleasdale has been out of League football since his ill–fated spell in charge of Peterborough, made infamous by the Sky One documentary "Big Ron Manager", and is currently bottom of the Blue Square North with Leigh RMI. However, he is still held in high regard at the Deva having been part of their Conference winning set–up, and after another disappointing season many at the club feel that his passionate approach is just what they need.

Leigh RMI are in financial difficulty and they have HM Revenue and Customs amongst their creditors, so they would gratefully accept any compensation offered.

  I heard from a reliable source at Villa that WilFred Bouma will not be offered a new contract. There was a bust up after he was substituted a couple of months back and he and MON have not spoken since. Bouma has also indicated that he wants to be playing for a club in the Champions League as he wants to keep his place in the Dutch team.

O'Neill is considering bringing back JLloyd Samuel to replace Bouma – he regrets selling him to Bolton and feels his pace will help drive the team forward. Samuel has had an injury hit season at Bolton and if they go down will certainly move to a Premier League team to rekindle his England aspirations.

O'Neill is also a big admirer of Derby ace Marc Edworthy, who can play at both left and right back, and a deal will be confirmed in the Summer.

  Man United have three Strikers in mind to replace Saha next season these are. Klaas Jan Hunterlaar, Karim Benzema and Luis Fabiano. Aaron Ramsey may sign other favourites to sign are Kerlon, R. Augusto and Lulinha

Thanks for Reading. = ) S10

  Daniel Guijo–Velasco looks set to join Hearts in the Summer. The Excelsior Rotterdam midfielder is out of contract in the Summer and talks have been taking place.

  If Xabi Alonso leaves expect Rafa Benitez to make a move for Michael Johnson, a deal which could see Peter Crouch heading in the opposite direction. –MB–

  The rumours about Xabi Alonso leaving Liverpool may have some weight behind them since he has been looking a shadow of his former self. However Lee Cattermole will not be signed, if Alonso leaves it will either be a replacement from Spain, with Rubén de la Red looking most likely, or Michael Johnson from Manchester City if Rafa goes British.

  It is almost certain that Alonso will be leaving Anfield this Summer–due to the birth of his first child and the fact his girlfriend is (and has been for sometime) homesick, a move home to be close to family is very much on the cards. Likely replacements are: Lucho. Gonzalez (Porto), Kiete (Sevilla), Poulsen (Sevilla), Javi Martinez (Ath. Bilbao), Xavi (Barcelona), Zapater (R. Zaragoza), Marquez (Barcelona) or Diarra (R. Madrid).

Full backs are the order of the day at Anfield, and Rafa aims to freshen up this area and improve it greatly. Currently, the LFC fullbacks are not able to overlap the winger and cut balls back. Rafa wants his width for the team to come from deep and the full backs. There is a host of right backs being monitored: Rafinha (Schalke), Nelson (Benfica), Boswinga (Porto), Miguel (Valencia), D. Alves (Sevilla). REDEDD INSIDER.

  If Commons goes to Birmingham it will be on a free as he only signed a year extention at the end of last season. Good player, but, he get's injured every 5 minutes.

  Mikel Arteta will become Real Madrids first signing of the Summer, FC Barcelona and real are fighting out behind the scenes to complete the deal. he will become the most expensive Spanish player ever when he arrives for 30,000,000 million

  Birmingham City

MAURO ZARATE–loan–£3 million loan for the 08–09 season with a view of a £10 million permant switch.

SIMON JENTZCH–3 million–great German keeper already having negotiations with the Blues.

BOBBY ZAMORA–4 million–linked with the Blues, Mcleish is eager to bring him.

STEVEN DAVIS–3.5 million–playing brilliant football with Rangers, blues have stiff opposition with Rangers and Wigan.

RICHARD DUNNE–500 k–out of contract in the Summer blues eager to bring the commanding defender to st. andrews

  Top info from Ibrox, expect a major announcement that send shock waves through the world of football, Glasgow Rangers are to be purchased by Ted Rodgers who will plough Mills into the funding of the new stadium, casino and players. obviously with the state of Scottish football we will not get the best but we will get great player in the Summer expect to see

  Areply to the poster who said Henry would go to Liverpool not Villa. Not everybody wants to go the 'Pool. Torres is the flavour so why go to be a No2?

He has a regard for MON, as many players have and is interested in a move. Only today it has been reported that he was looking at a move to the states.

This is usually the end of a players days when this choice is made. Do not think Henry is ready for the states just yet.

Like all posters on this site I add 1+ 1 and get 3, so I do not discount anything that I see or hear.

Henry is ready to move, Villa want a goal scorer. (1+ 1= 3).

2 weeks ago I travelled to Spain sat next to an agent. He said little but suggested a lot. OK I accept the chance is minimal but the few facts were there to be heard.

  Arsenal could complete the signing of young Englishman Ashley young. He will cost a minimum fee of £12 million. Micah Richards is also on his way to the Emirates. Even though he has just signed a new contract, he is willing to leave life at City for Champions League football. Bentley will not leave Blackburn for another season as he wishes to stay and develop his skills. As Bentley is not leaving, Liverpool will sign juaquine for £13 million. Also Sunderland will try to land ex Man United star Forlan for £16 million.

  Major transfers this Summer will consist of Ashley young, kranjcar, micah Richards all will sign for Arsenal. Total fee of 35 million. Aston Villa will sign Harry Kewell on a free as a replacement for young. Djourou will move City for Richards. Liverpool in the race for Spanish star Aaron from Valencia. Forlan, giles Barnes to Sunderland total fee of £22 million. M veloso 2 Man United £8 million. Drogba to Inter, Shaun Wright–Phillips to Portsmouth on a year long loan. There will be no more big transfers this Summer but sum small 1's
