Football Rumours Archive December 05 2008


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Deal to take Fabregas to the Camp Nou was concluded 3 weeks ago. Going the other way are Sylvinho and yes, you've guessed it, Thierry Henry along with 10m. Deal to bring Benzema to Barca will more than likely be concluded before christmas with the player moving in the summer.
  Firstly Roy Keane will be the Celtic manager from the start of the 09/10 season. This is after Strachan wins 4 in a row and possible treble Strachan feels he has done what he can at the club in terms of league titles and last 16 twice he will be offered a job in the premiership. Keane will take over Neil Lennon will stay and be given a more or an assistant managers job rather than coach. The relationship with Keane and our owner DD is pretty strong and it was he who brought Keane to play for us having this strong relationship DD will actually give Keane a part of his mass fortune it will be a mini turnover as Celtic fans are embarrased that we cant win away in europe and that the club claim to be up with the big boys in terms of size of club that's true but footballing ability its not and DD now realises that so will give Keane a big budget.
The squad is not bad but out will go Mark Brown (not good enough), Balde if he is still getting a wage, Doumbe(injured all the time),Naylor (not good enough)Donati,Killen etc all the fringe players basically but not reserves players like O'Dea,Caddis,Sheridan will get their chance. Boruc will be given a chance to sort out his personal life and get back to the way he used to be he is one of the best keepers in the world and would be hard to replace but if a offer of about £15 million came in we would consider it. Mcgeady might go for a good fee in January but if he doesn't and keane comes he might stay and to the guy who said he signed a contract that is so the club can value him at whatever they want. Im not going to put up a list of players who might come because i don't know but expect James McCarthy to sign for definate whether we loan him out or he joins at a futre date he will sign for Celtic is where he wants to be FACT, also expect players from Northern Ireland to be brought in the young Derry City player and the boy who scored 2 against Scotland Lennon was at this game. To other fans of the old firm both sides please stop the stupid rumours Broadfoot 5 mil not even worth 5 quid is he goin to Liverpool to take Carra's place ? and Iniesta to Celtic get real he is now one of Barca's most important players.
  Big News!!!!!!!!

Liverpool will be signing santa cruz if they arnt out the relegation zone. pennant 2 go the other way.

Also expect anthor left back n right wing. rafina is a option but unlikely. right wing is maybe ashley young if they can afford him. babel will get to the end of the season to prove himself.

nemeth,plessis,darby 2 go out on loan. darby is a villa loan target.

I will say that insua n el zhar 2 maybe go 2 newcastle on loan 2 keep them up. only happen if lpool don't get santa cruz. easier 2 sign owen!!

Trust meeeee!!!! am in the no
  The person who said broadfoot to liverpool for 5million talk some sense son, 10 million
any way Roy keanes departure has paved the way for celtic to make an offer, expect it to be done soon, and you wouldnt count out strachan to sunderland, you heard it off ""
  Colin Kazim Richards is on a few of managers trasfer agendas including Rangers, Portsmouth and QPR and has a price tag of 2 million pounds
  Right, rumours surrounding Man City are not that far off the mark, but, for the wrong reasons!

Man City have been bought to create a "brand" club, simillar to Chelsea. Not just this, but the Sheikh is planning on recouping some of the money splashed out by floating City on the stockmarket.

Because of this, City will be offering significant amounts of money for players and grabbing headlines all over the world as a form of advertising for the club and the brand so it is deemed more valuable when floated. This needs to happen, as, lets be honest, City are not a well known club across the world – buying Robinho and launching bids for Buffon, Messi, Ronaldo etc instantly makes them more recognisable.

This brings us to Robinho – don't be surprised if he ends up at Chelsea next summer after the float (which will have recouped significant funds outlayed to buy the club) in order to get back the £34m used to buy him in the first place. He will go to Chelsea in a deal for £30m+ and Wayne Bridge.

Bojan Krkic Robinho

12 players. . .

good one. . . .

Who ever wrote 12 players. . Good one. . . .

in response to my selection, you are either not a football fan or cannot count there are 11 players. Bojan Krkic is one player. Einstein.

Yido Rob.
  In response to the guy who wrote this in retaliation to my e–mail.

''You do not have a clue you have three key reasons wrong with this.1.Huntelaar is clearly on the brink of signing for real madrid so he wil not be going to man u.2."quaresma going to the reds"clearly you know nothing of football as he signed for inter in the summer and went on a four or five year deal.3.gomes has been pretty good last few days he has just conceded to watford nice 1,given will not move from newcastle as he said yesterday he is happy on tyneside and dismissed any other links in italy aswell as tottenham.finally newcastle to sign in jan:skjelbred,jaoquin(loan),denilson(loan),djourou(loan)and believe it or not carlos tevez.KINEARS KROWN''

You do not have a clue. Inter will sell Quaresema at the right price, Madrid want Ronaldo and any such deal will be dependant on United have options on Huntellar. Gomes conceded 1 against Watford wow, he hasnt made mistakes lately and he put in a MOM performance the other day. How can the deluded Geordies sign these players you are on about? Owen wants to move to another club as Ashley cannot afford his wages and your still in massive debt so how can you possibly afford Tevez for £32million and you are not even in Europe. . .

Turn your x–box off and get back to reality.

Robbie Keane said he'd never leave Tottenham after the carling cup final, where is he now? Given is as good as gone, your small, trophyless and penniless club are going nowhere, wake up mate.

  Bojan Krkic is ONE player btw dummy!
any way celtic looking at John Gossens a left back from Ajax for around 2mil mark and naylor to everton or stoke come jan

  To the guy that said
"Expect Man.City's line up next season to be. . . .

Learn to count there are only 11 players there
now to the rumours
expect Walter Smith to sell morer than buy this window.

Berra – Hearts
Driver – Hearts

Adam – Hamilton (Loan)
Darcheville – Nice
Daily – Blackpool

also expect Fleck and Aaron to become starters in the first team
  According to keanos uncle ,drumaville are gone broke and there will be a massive sell out in january including kenwyn jones ,cisse etc.
Keane was annoyed that he could not get the players on his that he wanted and that he was left with the scraps ex ferdinand and chopra .There was no scouts at the club when he wenty there .
Quinn was not able to sign steve ireland or steve hunt or kevin doyle .
According to keanos uncle keano will take a short break but could be back in management in the new year at my favourite club
also keane did ,nt particulary like some of the delinquent supporters .
maybe we will se jones in a notts forest shirt shortly .
  Kevin Ball will takeover as the new Sunderland manager and will step up from the backroom staff. He`s already had a successful time in charge as caretaker manager in 2006. Drumaville have gone bust and expect a firesale in january this is why kevin ball will takeover as the club cant afford to pay massive wages on a new manager.
  Frank Rijkaard to Sunderland
Mark my words.

John P (Arsenal fan)
  Kirk Broadfoot will definately be leaving Rangers in January.Birmingham, Blackburn , Portsmouth and Wigan are all interested. (£2.5 million is the fee being mentioned not £5 million)

Dundee Utd striker Francisco Sandaza is interesting Birmingham City. Rangers and Celtic sniffing about but scared off with Uniteds valuation £2.5 Million !!.

Gary O'Connor offered to Scottish Prem sides , could be used as bait for Sandaza from United.

  'Will people stop with the Liverpool Rafhina rumours, it aint gonna happen, he's not good enough, we might as well give Tommy Smith his draft papers rather than sign this rubbish. If Rafhina signs for Liverpool then I'll buy a Tranmere season ticket.'

I'll also buy a tranmere season ticket if rangers take a loss on Steven naismith and if he passes a medical considering he's been out since the end of last season and he's out for the rest of the season.
  Come January Chelsea will be looking to sign another striker, especially if Drogba doesn't perform very well over the next couple of weeks. I've also heard that Scolari wants another winger as he believes Malouda hasn't performed up to Chelsea standard. Expect bids from Man City for either A.Cole or Bridge and Inter to bid for Drogba and possibly Malouda. Scolari may look to buy either Adriano from Inter or Fred from Lyon, and possibly Podolski.
  Arsenal– Yaya Toure 14m , G Milito 12m
Chelsea– Vanger Love 12m
Liverpool– Owen 4m , Bale 9m
Man City– Hernanes 9m , Essien 36m , Benayoun 5m , Pepe 30m
Man Utd– Tevez 32m

January Ins.

Danny Webber(Sheff Utd ST)
Paul Gallagher (Blackburn ST)(Loan Made Pernament)
Wes Hoolahan (Norwich CM)
Matt Murray(Wolves GK)

January Outs.

Luke Summerfield(Loan Yeovil)
Jason Puncheon (MK Dons)
Jermaine Easter (Colchester)
Gary Sawyer (Leicster)


  I left a comment yesterday about Tony Mowbrays days being numbered and Sam Allardyce being the number 1 choice to take over. Well the word going around the office today, with the news of Roy Keane leaving Sunderland. . That the offer to bring in Sam Allardyce will be made before he has chance to agree terms with Sunderland! He will have the time and he will have the financial backing to make West Brom a true force in the Premiership. Something Tony Mowbray will never ever be capable of.

  Arsenal will get rid of bednter for about £4 million – most likely to Everton. Arsene will try to bring michael owen to the emirats to replace him as the 'fox in the box striker'. I dnt know the exact fee tht Arsenal are prparing to bid but it is meant to be around 2million plus denilson. Paul M Newcastle
  I work for a newspaper in scotland cant tell u the newpaper but ive got a grip of some major transfers around britian in the last 96hours Christophe berra away to rangers for 1.9m inc hemdani. Another is celtic will get fletcher. sylvinho. and maitic zironovic from sampdoria and 2 young czech republic player and a youngster from derry. From england there is a rumour that heskey will join everton. Liverpool will sign nikoli zigic and dejan stankovic from Inter Milan. Man city will sing ronaldo(BRAZILIAN) Man utd will get falcao and demertocovic from Slavia prag for 7.8million. Ricardo carvalho will sign a 3 year deal at chelsea and drogba will leave to go inter milan. .LARSSON to sign a loan deal with everton (6months). .Moutinho and veloso to go to Newcastle and arsenal to sign babel and sinama Pongolle also ADRIANO to go to West ham or MAN CITY :>
  I work for Edinburgh's Premium Newspaper

Heart of Mid–Lothian F.C are in dire financial straits. Unpaid wages,moneys owed and current financial crisis have left the club on the brink of administration. Accounting firm PWC are due to be appointed receivers within the month.
  I posted on here last summer that Pascal Chimbonda didnt want to stay at Sunderland and would go to Spain in January, i was laughed at and abused by my fellow mackems. the reason i posted it is because i am good friends with several people at the club including first team players. I will say it again Chimbonda will be leaving, although it looks like to France. I was also told a few days ago that Tony Pulis has already been lined up as a replacement for Keano, but at the time is wasnt certain that the bearded one would be leaving this week. If Pulis does come, expect him to bring Rory Delap and Mamady Sidibie with him. Remember where you read it first people
  Dave kitson and 3 million for doyle and hunt
  Ah well, cue fantasy dream teams galore on this now with everyone speculating about who`s going where. I`m sure every Toffee cringed today when you saw the news that we were being linked with David Nugent. I sure did. I hope he doesn`t come. I cant even remember the last time i saw his name on the Pompei team sheet. He`s a championship player. Larsson? Please god no. He`s 37 for god`s sake. He didnt do that much in his loan spell at Utd if truth be told. Lots of podlolski rumours flying about, but I doubt we have the cash for him, and i think he probably fancies European footie and a fat pay packet. . cue spurs/city etc.
  Rumor out of St James Park,is that Mike Ashley will give as much money to Joe Kinnear to spend on rebuilding this weak and undersized team.Firstly kinnear willget rid of jose enrique who has been a disappointment after arriving from spain. Along with jose heading to the exit door will be smith,cacapa,xisco on loan and yes i said it michael owen is on his way out the exit doors.With these sales, joe will sign quality players.On his wish list is riise,bridge,bale and slyvinho.As for boosting the midfield joe will look af a few young talents, such s denilson,mcgriedy,moutinho and carrick.He will spend big on one striker come january. .i have heard thierry henry is on his way.Out of all the players on the list joe will sign atleast 4 quality players and some young up rising talents. .
  Everton fc are looking at the following players sebastian dubarbier who has impressedd for cluj, Nicklas Bendtner arsenal, Miles Addison derby county.
  In the wake of Roy Keane's abrupt Sunderland walkout, a shortlist was already prepared to avoid disrpution at the Mackems. . The 10 names shorltisted are : Owen Coyle – Burnley|Sam Allardyce – None| Laurent Blanc – Bordeaux| Dwight Yorke – None ( Would be Player/Manager )| Juande Ramos – None |Mick McCarthy – Wolves| Kevin Ball – None | Alex Rae – None | Dariusz Kubicki – None | Chris Turner – Hartlepool | Some of these are obviously unlikely but the board want someone who can be trusted i.e a succesful manager or someone who already knows the club. I am told by my source close to the board that Dwight Yorke is most likely to become caretaker but other than that he is a wildcard. .
