first off Jack Rodwell won't be coming this year unless some one else bids for him his devlopment will best be served at Everton for now, that being said sir alex doesn't want to miss out on him so will be allowing Micheal Owen to join Everton for free in return for first refusal on him until the end of jan 2012. as everyone knows Chris Smalling is arriving for around 10mil, that's all in defence no one else will be coming in or out, the only exception will be if Neville decides to call it a day and retires, if he does he won't be replaced. Sir alex wants more creativity from the midfield and will be going for Joe Cole on a free, if this falls through then expect Modric for around the 20mil mark, these are the only 2 targets for midfield and its been narrowed down to these two as boyh can play centre, wide left or behind the striker. the big transfer will be upfront with Luis Suarez being the top target for around the 25mil mark, if this fails then other targets include Edin Dzeko, Karim Benzema, Staven Jovetic and Luis Fabiano all being between 15–25mil. no goalkeeper will be signed until January with Igor Akinfeev being the top target on a free transfer again if this fails then Hugo Lloris in a swap deal involving Anderson and cash or just cash if anderson has proven himself by january. leaving in the summer will be Tosic and Possebon for between 4–6mil each, Owen on a free to Everton, and De Laet Welbeck Obertan and Mame Diouf on loan deals to just premoted sides. in January Anderson will be sold if he hasn't proven himself, he would be sold in the summer if it wasn't for his injury keeping him sidelined until september at least. but unless he's exceptional expect him to be sold or possibly used in exchange for Lloris. one of either Foster or Kuszczak will be sold to make way for the new keeper, at the moment it's more likely to be Foster, the only way neither will be sold is if United sign Lloris in which case if they do then it's expected that he'll be loaned back to Lyon for the rest of the season if they can't find a replacement in time. the only other player who could be out in january is Hargreaves and that's only if he hasn't proven his worth by then and of course if he's fit enough to sell, but expect him to be back to full fitness and hopefully playing well next season, he'll be like a new signing. Berbatov is the only really unknown quantity, he may see the new striker and jump ship or sir alex may push him out if he feels that he isn't the right fit for the team or he may buckle down and ride it out and try(maybe even succeed, but i doubt it)to prove himself.
sorry its abit long winded.

Dani Pacheco is likely to move to Celtic on loan next season, as Neil Lennon delcared his interest him and Rafa will want him to get more first team experience


05 Apr 2010 21:45:23
Im sorry but what deranged manure fan thinks that liverpool and rafael benitez would ever sell torres to them its complete non–sense i read that man united would bid £33 million for david villa because of his age but might still to try and lure torres away im still shocked at what this person is thinking ino its a transfer rumour website like but its not a MAKE UP RUBBISH site. Right onto my team Liverpool we are in dire need for a left back as insua is a mess he gets skinned week in week out he played ok against sunderland but that's only because sunderland didn't get at him. Any one with any good left back players who we might be getting

I want to know all the players manchester united are try to sign next season


05 Apr 2010 20:05:40
A number of contacts in the football world have heard rumours that if Manchester United win a 19th title then Sir Alex will step down, he has made a promise to his family and has done so for years, His main goal is to take the team beyond the rivals Liverpool's Record of championship trophies. (Will keep himself involved in football as an advisor to his son)
If this does happen this season a new manager will not be appointed until the following season begins, which will be too late to prevent the Glazers from selling Wayne Rooney for 65Million pounds to Real madrid, Money which is raised from the sales of Higuain and Kaka, the latter being a huge dissapointment in La liga.
Rumour of the new manager at united being Italy's national coach, as he will be stepping down after the world cup.
Liverpool will give Rafa the chance to add some well thought of players to the Squad but new owners (done deal) will look for some fairly instant results. He has til January to proove that with the reported Five additions to the club (Three of which are done deals) Liverpool are title contenders. If they are not showing championship winning form then Only one man is being looked at to take the reins, and he Will be leaving his current club at the end of this season mark my words. I will not mention any names, but he certainly has the CV to bring the silver that not only the fans but the players themselves are so longing for.

100% that steve coppell would be the new bristol city mananger, his first game in charge would be away to scunthorpe( sat the 10th). Keith millen would go back as being number 2.

The idiot which said that mr coppell would be palaces new manage wait up and stop dreaming.

1. why would he even wanna manage a team that will be playing their football in league 1 next season.

2. A prick of a chairman which don't like spending his money/

3 No money at all to buy any players


05 Apr 2010 15:46:45
Swansea are to look at signing Norwegian International 'keeper Rune Jarstein, on recommendation from former player and Swans legend Roger Freestone.


05 Apr 2010 15:46:51
What started as formal negotiations have now moved on into advanced negotiations to take three players to LIVERPOOL during the summer months! these player's who will, as we speak, be moving to the merseyside club are! thomas hitzlesperger from lazio, carlton cole from west ham united and kieran richardson from sunderland! according to information regarding mr richardson, rafael benitez has been impressed with his ability in the left back position and with johnson firmly believes that by the end of the following season will have both of englands full backs?


05 Apr 2010 15:01:50
What rubbish ! Bristol city news. steve coppell will be appointed city manger this friday 9/4/10, will take charge after swansea game, millen being number two, plus someone else coming in as a link man between landsdown/coppell with a football background!

Another year, another month, another day – Liverpool dreaming of someone buying their club! All the people who know who is buying, dates, etc. – they are such sad supporters! No–one will buy a sinking ship!!!

Summer – Remy, Chamakh – Arsenal, Benzema – Man U, Ribery – Chelsea, Hitzelsper – Liverpool, Dorrans – Everton.


05 Apr 2010 13:29:03
Veteran striker Tommy Mooney is to join Darlington as a player/coach next season.


05 Apr 2010 13:25:59
Poole Town striker Steve Smith is going to link up with his old team–mate Charlie Austin at Swindon Town next season.

Matthew Tubbs will also sign from Salisbury City, leaving Danny Wilson with a good range of striking talent for next season in either a promotion push from League 1 or a mid–table Championship challenge:

Pericard, Austin, Tubbs, Smith, Bodin – a very impressive forward line for next season!


05 Apr 2010 13:15:31
I heard these rumours from a staff member from Liverpool and he said in confidence that they are getting the following players Vargas from Fiorentina to replace Riera, David Pizzaro to replace Alonso and

Also coming to the SoL will be nigel reo coker, Cristian rivieros. Hutton and mensah will sign permenantly with benjani going back to city


05 Apr 2010 11:39:40
To the person that said this:

"Man u fans this could be berbatov last season with u fergie has told united he his going to get one last chance vs munich to see if he is good enought vs big teams if doesn't perform goodbye he will be replaced by macheda vs blackburn cause fergie doesn't want a player who scores vs easy teams and macheda does suit uniteds play and will replace bebatov till rooneys back but he could be back wednesday not just the paper said but united sources have said he will be with a leg protecton whick protects the anklie aswell fact. ins for united expect at leeast 3 or 4 to come in and will bid for 6 players some will probaly fail big name players to come in for united this summer the 4 players they will be bid fo first is di maria milner joe cole benzema but if fail they will bid silva and vila swap with bebatov and possebon and obertan on loan not sure about berbatov whereever it will be loan or perm outs are berbatov foster welbeck loan"

This sounded believeable until you spoilt it by saying that United would offer Berbatov, Possebon & Obertan for Silva & Villa. Valencia have agreed to sell both these players because of money troubles. I really don't think a player for player swap will be the solution to Valencia's money problems.

Valencia want £33m for David Villa, no less than that and they want £26m for David Silva, no less than that.

United will not be paying £33m for Villa because of his age. He is getting on a bit now and United will not splash that sort of money out on a player that is the age of David Villa. David Silva was being looked at before Nani signed a new contract. SAF was getting worried that Nani wasn't going to improve but Nani proved him wrong which is what made United offer him a new deal.

United are not desperate for a LM for next season.. if Joe Cole becomes available on a free transfer then you can expect United to try to sign him up but no other LM player will be coming in. No Silva, No Ribery and no Angel Di Maria.

Wayne Rooney will get a new 5 year deal at United at the end of the season but before the World Cup starts. This will shake off the rumours of him leaving for Madrid.

Nemanja Vidic has demanded a new contract at United worth £100,000 a week to make him stay. If United can't come to this agreement with Vidic then he will be leaving for either Barcelona or Real Madrid. A £30m price tag will be put on him and the first team to come up with the bid of this amount will get him. United will then look at Chiellini of Juventus as a replacement for Vidic.

Karim Benzema is being looked at as a Berbatov successer but United could make another attempt to lure Torres to Old Trafford. Torres is becoming more and more frustrated at Liverpool, he has claimed to have said that he wants to win trophies and he has also stated that Liverpool need a Rooney type player.. If United give Torres the chance to play with Wayne Rooney and the wages are right I think Torres may snub staying at LFC and join United.

Coventry City News.

After a disappointing run of results, it has become clear to Chris Coleman that he needs to bring in at least 3 or 4 quality players, if the Sky Blues are to push for the play–offs next season. Dimi Konstantopoulos(Aris), Stephen Wright(Tranmere), Marcus Hall(Walsall), Elliott Ward(Preston), Curtis Wynter(Nuneaton), Ashley Cain(Oxford) and Adam Walker(Nuneaton) will all leave on free transfers when their contracts expire. Michael Doyle will join Leeds for 300k regardless of whether they get promoted or not, Isaac Osbourne will leave for around 250k.

Kieren Westwood will be offered a new long–term contract with the wages saved from the release of the players above, it will be a new 4 year contract, but with a clause that if Coventry don't get promoted within the next 2 years, he can leave if a Premiership club offers 6m or more.
Clinton Morrison will sign a new 1 year contract.

Coleman is happy with Martin Cranie, James McPake, Richard Wood, Ben Turner, Jordan Clarke and Chris Hussey in defence. He will bring in Leon Barnett from West Brom and one of Lee Naylor from Celtic, or Stephen Jordan from Burnley.
He will then look to bring in a couple of midfielders, as the teams lacks pace and real creativity. Jonny Howson will join from Leeds and Martin Woolford will join from Scunthorpe.
Up front, Jon Stead will be sent back to Ipswich as he has not performed well enough to earn himself a permanent deal with the club, Freddy Sears will return to West Ham as he will be playing in the Championship for them next season. This will then leave Freddy Eastwood and Clinton Morrison as the only recognised strikers in the squad. 2 strikers are needed – The main targets will be Gary Hooper from Scunthorpe, Charlie Austin from Swindon and Simeon Jackson from Gillingham. Jackson will definitely sign, but the other one to join will depend on whether Scunthorpe stay up/go down or Swindon get promoted or not.

In summary:

Outs – Dimi Konstantopoulos(Free), Stephen Wright(Free), Marcus Hall(Free), Elliott Ward(Free), Curtis Wynter(Free), Ashley Cain(Free), Adam Walker(Free), Michael Doyle(300k) and Isaac Osbourne(250k).
Ins – Leon Barnett(West Brom), Lee Naylor/Stephen Jordan(Celtic/Burnley), Jonny Howson(Leeds), Martin Woolford(Scunthorpe), Simeon Jackson(Gillingham), Gary Hooper/Charlie Austin(Scunthorpe/Swindon).

Arsenal could raid the Eridivisie this summer and all their problems could be solved. A triple raid on Ajax Amsterdam could happen in the form of Jan Vertonghen, Marteen Stekelenburg and Gregory Van Der Wiel. AZ Alkmaar could also be raided for Moussa Dembele

Steven Defour of Standard Liege to sign a four year deal with Arsenal in the summer


05 Apr 2010 00:57:44
To the person that said mukesh ambani is going to take over and o neill to be manager.are u sure this is going to happen?


05 Apr 2010 00:56:42
Ipswich fan:

Bad news I'm afraid. Keano has lost the dressing room, and Marcus Evans is worried that he will not make a return on his investment.

Therefore, expect a make–or–break season for the Tractor Boys next season. If Ipswich are not successful (i.e. they fail to challenge for promotion) then Evans will walk with Keano not far behind (maybe to coaching role at Old Trafford).


05 Apr 2010 00:17:05
A glass of weak shandy from the Taps in Lytham for a couple of very unhappy players from PRESTON NORTH END.

If your manager told you to take a 30% reduction in wages and were told on a daily basis by that manager that you and your team mates were "shirkers"..would you want to stay at that club even though you love it there.YOUL MAWENE is trying very hard to get a deal for the next 2 seasons..but now finds himself sitting on the bench..even though he's fit?

The dressing room atmosphere has reached an all time low with many players being resigned to the clear out in the summer and personality clashes with FERGIE JR reaching epic proportions amongst ertain cplayers.

MATTY JAMES is a player who was again on the receiving end of FERGIE JR's post match rants after Saturdays game with WATFORD.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST and MIDDLESBOROUGH are chasing JAMES for his services next season after watching him play against them with PNE.

MATTY is seriously considering jumping ship, rather than stay in the bad atmosphere at PNE.


05 Apr 2010 00:04:23
Fabio (MAN UTD) 3 million"

Yes, because Utd are going to sell a future Brazillian first–choice leftback just two months after he signed a new four year contract. It was all a ruse to keep Newcastle's interest quiet.

As for real Manchester United rumours, my source tells me that Ferguson is looking at a summer bid for Karim Benzema, with Nemanja Vidic possibly in part–exchange; it is felt that Evans will step up and Smalling will provide adequate cover. Rodwell is also a target but will only be bidded for if rivals move, as is Joe Cole if he doesn't sign a new contract. Angel Di Maria is also a possibility, depending on the amount raised by the expected sales of Foster, Vidic (or potentially Brown), Tosic, Carrick and possibly Welbeck.


04 Apr 2010 23:50:44
Massive summer ahead for Liverpool , Benitez will leave the club in June and be replaced by Martin O`Neil who will be appointed by Mukesh Ambani who will buy the club in the week 15–May to 22–May also big names will be coming into the club with a deal for Juan Mata all but done
