Football Rumours Archive March 04 2007


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.


Gordon Strachan will announce hes to quit Parkhead after the title is secured in the next couple of weeks. Replacements already in line to take the Glasgow hot seat. Hiddink and an un-named Japanese coach are favourites to land the post. The Japanese connection is not necessarily a Japanese citizen but has Japanese connections. The story is yet to unfold but strong spec is Zico is the man to take over but hes already tied up in Turkey. Ill bring you more once I find out.

Villa squad for next season will have a good outlook with Young talent in Davis, gabby, moore, Cahill, ridge, Young, possibly bardsley, and maybe milner, however the latter now looks unlikely with quartet of gab, Young, moore and maloney. Experience in mccann, petrov, barry. Expect Sidwell to sign for us. Liverpool will not sign such a player as he fits the bill for standard at villa. strikers are to go in angel with poss replacement ashton if whu go down. Also expect Luke Young at rb if delaney says bon voyage. Anton ferd is possible for around 5m. The squad therefore will be built around solid reliable players, non of this fancy dan crap like weve bought in past.

Sorenson/ ? - GK

Bouma/ Barry

Petrov/ Davis

Mccann/ Sidwell

As can be seen the left needs sorting I've heard Riise if Samuel goes. But that could be a dream! Decent looking, but lets see! Up the villa!



As I and a good few others have said Nani from sporting lisbon will be signing for United in the summer. It will not however lead to a Ronaldo departure. As we have seen the pair can play on either wings and it will not be a problem. p.s (nani tracks back) .

O'Shea and Fletcher will as I said before NOT be sold. To the person who said they are not great, yeah there not but can still do a job.

Richardson will 100% be leaving. Fergie has given him plenty of chances to prove his worth over the last 8 months and has not impressed also a few players are not happy with his attitude. Should be sold in july for around 5 million maybe Everton, aston Villa or Spurs.

Fernando Torres will sign for 22 million.

Moutinho will not join but Inter and Atletico Madrid are possible destinations.


I am tired of those people selling Darren Fletcher to Celtic or Rangers for £4mil+ just because he is Scottish. A) No-one would be daft enough to pay that B) Rangers do not have anywhere near that kind of money to spend C) he is not that good and one of the most over-rated Scottish players since James McFadden. Rangers will not sign Robbie Fowler as he will not take a massive drop in wages for his last club regardless of the signing on fee. They will only sign McDonald from Motherwell for any sort of fee to add to their mediocre team Smith is building to rival Hearts and Hibs. All their 'big' money went on Thompson. Neither team can compete for Sidwell's signature based on the money that is going into English football next year, so that rumour is a non-starter. Celtic WILL spash the money they have earned from the Champions league on Freddy Ljungberg, who has been sold on the club by Henrik Larsson who he has been catching up with while at Man Utd.


Rangers FC will recruit (in the summer) Gattuso and a big surprise loan deal (Im not privvy to disclose but Rangers fans will be delighted). And just to quash this Robbie Fowler thing connecting him to Rangers FC: there is no chance either Rangers want him or Fowler wanting to go there. Hes finished and Rangers already have three main strikers lined up.

From a contact very close to the club I have discovered Sunderland manager Roy Keane will have a large pot of money available to him regardless of whether or not they are promoted.

The club will change kit makers to Umbro in a 5 year deal and are attracting big sponsorship deals from Guiness and Ryanair. No rumours on who the money will be spent on as yet, as this will depend more on promotion

Manchester United are in the market for a new striker and will sign at least one, possibly two, attackers this summer. Seeing how Henrik Larsson is set to return to parent club Helsingborg and Alan Smith is no longer wanted at Old Trafford, Sir Alex Ferguson knows he will need to bolster his front line next season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to pick up a new injury every month, so that leaves only Wayne Rooney and Louis Saha as the only dependable strikers. Youngster Dong Fanghzuo will be thrust into the first team picture next term following a lengthy loan stint at feeder club Royal Antwerp, but Ferguson knows he will need a big name striker who can guarentee 20 goals minimum. Samuel Eto'o has been linked with Liverpool and Arsenal, but my personal opinion is that he won't leave Barcelona. Rumour has it that United are watching Roma forward Francesco Totti and, although he's not an out and out striker, he gets plenty of goals and could link up well with Paul Scholes to create more freedom for the team.

Liverpool will attempt to sign Brazilain winger/ right back Daniel Alves from Seville in the summer - however Seville want Mark Gonzalez in part exchange. Seville are also set to sign Jose Antonio Reyes from Arsenal.


Liverpool FC 2007/ 08

RB - Finnan, Arbeleo

CB - Carragher, Paletta

CB - Agger, Hyypia

LB - Riise, Aurelio

RM - Alves, Pennant

CDM - Sissoko, Mascherano

CM - Gerrard, Alonso

LM - Gamst Pederson or Van Der Vaart, Gonzalez

United will have a summer clear out. The performance against Reading and the squad to face Liverpool clearly show this. When Fergie loses faith (Beckham, Van nistelrooy) the exit door looms. Fletcher, Richardson, Silvestre, bardsley out

ins : nani, Hargreaves, bale, and a 20 goal a season striker possibly berbatov, bent, eto'o.

They will also look for deals involving sporting lisbon trio yannick djalo, miguel veloso and Joao Moutinho if this does occur Brown and possibly Heinze will be of in January 2008

smith will not be offloaded and will have to accept a bit part role

Liverpool will again pursue David Villa but I cannot see this happening. Sunderland if they gain promotion will pursue Craig Bellamy

Chelsea will offload khalid boulahroz and will sign another "william gallas" this may be micah Richards. United wer interested in Richards but I can't see the glazers allowing this transfer because there will be other activities involved during the summer. Expect Chelsea to nip this one

Aaron Hunt for Glasgow Rangers.

LFC. To the guys who say Dudek will be joining some club or another for £1.5 million. Dudek's contract expires in June which makes him a FREE transfer. Rafa is looking to replace Crouch with Torres. Crouch doesn't want to leave but Rafa is trying to force him out by using him as a sub. David Villa is no longer an option as Valencia are asking for silly money in hope that Chelski will pay it. NOW HERE"S THE INTERESTING PART. Rafa wants to get rid of Bellamy for £9M to Villa and Crouch to Newcastle for £10M and replace them with Eto £25M and Torres £27M. That would work out at £16M per striker. Other major signings will be Van Der Vaart, Alves plus a few Youngsters.

Players in:

Torres, Eto, VdV, Alves.

Players out:

Dudek, Fowler, Crouch, Bellamy, Pongolle, Zenden, Hyypia.

Dont be shocked but a very big Spanish team are about to launch a bid for Rangers capatain. I cannot say too much but please note thsi page in weeks to come. Sergio G.

It could be the case that Tim Cahill has played his last game for Everton - with the Aussie sidelined for the rest of the season and AC Milan and Inter Milan interested - willing to pay up to £12 million!


Juan Roman Riquelme is favourite to join Man U. Juve and a lot of other Italian clubs are interested but so are Bayern Munich. If he joins Munich it will pave the way for Hargreaves to join Man U.

To the guy who posted:

Rangers will bring in

Robbie Fowler (Free) - PAST IT NO CHANCE OF THIS

Alan Gow (Free) - WE ALL KNOW THIS

Steve Sidwell (Free) - HES A KNOWN TIC FAN

Scott Brown (2. 5mil) - POSSIBILITY DUE TO KEVIN

Steven Naismith (2. 5mil) ? - PROBABLE


Chinedu Ogbuke (1. 5mil) - MOST LIKLEY GOING TO GERMANY

They will also bring in the following coaches


Brian Laudrup

Andy Goram

They will bring in the following youth players

Adda Djeziri

Mads Laudrup

Freddy Adu

Gideon Boateng

Are you serious! If I am being honest here, we will go for youth players most likley free's with little to no funds to spend, we all know Mr Murray is winding down the club to sell and I say thank you to him. He has funded us for years now.
