Football Rumours Archive February 05 2007


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Everything is positive at Arsenal, we may have conceded the title this year but next season we'll definetly win the league. Wenger is currently concentrating on winning the matches, but the board are looking to tie Wenger down to a long term deal in the summer. They are also turning their attentions to the summer transfer market. Two new keepers may be bought with a young one like Scott Carson and probably Gigi Buffon in a swap for Ljungburg. Although we have youth coming up in these positions we may still opt for good British talent and buy Micah Richards and Gareth Bale. With the current striker shortage we may be tempted into buying somebody like Ryan Babel. It is a possibility that we will splash the cash and buy a midfield maestro like Ribery, but I think this is unlikey. Now, I think we'll be buying quite a few youth players to add to our solid future. We are interested in Gai Assulin, Tristan Plummer, James Wilson, Victor Moses, Alexandre Pato, jack Rodwell, Rossi Jarvis, Salvatore Foti, James McCarthy, Nikon Jevtic, Bojan krkic and Martin Caceras, we've already bought a 15 year old kid from France called Gilles Sunu. The main focus should be on bringing the best British players to Emirates. In the summer we will see the departure of some Gunners like Lehmann, Ljungburg, Eboue, Aliadiere (finally) and also Julio Baptista probably won't complete a permament move. The future is bright, the future is red and white.

Since Man United thrashed out at Spurs and got 4 you think they will just look for a RB could be NELSON and a DM could be HARGREAVES I end up going for forward would be HUNTELAAR as TORRES has not really shone in La Liga this season thanks 5. 2. 07

The new American owners of Liverpool are set to hand Rafa Benitez a whopping £150 million to spend. Benitez will not spend ridiculously however, although expect him to sign either Rafael Van Der Vaart, Aaron Lennon or Shaun Wright-Phillips as well as either David Villa or Klaas Jan Huntelaar and also a couple of defenders. Thierry Henry will be allowed to leave Arsenal in the summer for around £25 million - and although Barcelona and Real Madrid are main contenders - expect Liverpool to make a surprise bid.


Well, well, well.

It seems Liverpool are now to be given over 100 million to spend in the summer. Finally we can fight with the big boys financially.

Micah Richards - 20 million

Thierry Henry (possible) - 25/ 30 million

Pedersen - 10 million

Alves - 15 million

Mascherano (permamanent) Undisclosed Fee

Gareth Bale - 12 million or

Leighton Baines - 5/ 6 million

and then a huge investment in 16/ 17 year olds to guarentee the future will be great.

Everton are set to swoop for Bristol City wonder kid Tristan Plummer they have been tracking him for a while, he has been offered a pro contract on reaching his 17th birthday but to this point has refused to sign, and sources close to the boy say he was waiting untill after the youth cup game against Arsenal to see if he could get a move to a bigger club, the performance of a number of the Bristol youth team raised eyebrows as they lost on penaltys after extra time and had the better of the game for 120 mins

Hot off the Press for Birmingham City.

Had my inside info today from the groundsman who I speak to and keeps me posted on the latest gossip.

With the Upson cash (6m) and the (5m) chunk of promotion money that has been promised to Bruce if he gets us up he has already agreed the following: Muamba (permanent 2m), Hyypia (2. 5m) and (unannounced part of the Upson deal: if West Ham go down) Harewood and Mears (3m) he is also on the look out for a Keeper.

Brucie also hopes to some deal with Bendtner but he is keen to go back to Arsenal. BLUENOSE INSIDER predicts if we get up - we stay up!

I have heard that Scottish giants Rangers are planning a move for PSV Eindhoven midfielder Phillip Cocu. The former Barcelona skipper has been at the Philips Stadion for three years and could be willing to make one final move before retiring. Rangers boss Walter Smith would be willing to offer Cocu a one year deal with the option of a further year if he impresses at Ibrox.

LCFC Rumours

Chelsea and Manchester United have both had scouts watch Leicester City's Australian Under 20 international James Wesolowski, after originally being recommended from some performances in the Youth World Cup last year. They are very surprised he is unable to get into the Leicester side but Chelsea see him as "one for the future, in the mould of Makelele". Trust me this will happen!

Sheffield United

Are the Blades going looking to get a Midfielder on Loan fron Celtic? Rumours on the street is Thomas Gravesen is on his way down to the lane

NORWICH RUMOURS: I was right about Chris Brown and now I bring you the next nuggett of information. Peter Grant has signed a pre-contact with Liverpool's young midfielder Danny Guthrie. He will join in July subject to a medical.

Also Grant has made enquiries into the availability about Sheffield Utd Mikele Leigertwood and West Ham duo Paul Konchesky&George McCartney to solve the canaries' defensive crisis

Man United Summer Transfers:

Owen Hargreaves (Bayern Munich), £20m

Gareth Bale (Southampton), £10m (+ loan back to Southampton for 2007-08 season)

Fernando Torres (Athletico Madrid) / Klaas Jan Either Huntelaar (Ajax) / Miroslav Klose (Werder Bremen) {Torres for £26m/ Huntelaar for £11m/ Klose for £15m}

And the extremely surprising transfer for Man Utd in the summer involves a disillusioned Chelsea player previously targeted by United. This is non other than Arjen Robben. Why? 1) Mourinho WILL leave 2) His old boss Guus Hiddink will replace him 3) He hates Guus Hiddink from his PSV days 4) The only other club he would want to play for in the premiership is MU. (Unknown price) .

These transfers would add up to a sum of a maximum £70m. However, these funds will be made available to United through sales in the summer and last summer as well as £25m from the Glazers + superstar £25m, money left over and income from new TV deal. Also if they win the league this season (and/ or UCL) income would also rise.

If the Italian fa go through with the banning of Italian football, expect rino Gattuso to join Rangers in the summer. mainly due to Walter Smith being here INS. Scott brown. Scott mcdonald. gow. gattuso. Niemi. whittaker

RFC will sign atleast 6 players come the summer with the same amount likely to leave. If the club get into the champions league there will be a 10m budget for Walter Smith to use, if not it will be 6m. He has already made a 2m profit from the transfer window + Uefa cup and champions league money. This source is also telling me 4 players are practically signed with with another 2 being targetted:

Whitaker 1m target

Webster 1m signed

Brown 3m signed

Mculloch 1. 5m target

Gow - signed

Naismith 2m signed

Sheffield United Rumours

I hear Thomas Gravesen is not too happy at being dropped to the bench after all the transfer dealing by his manager Gordon Strachan. or more to the point he may be tempted back in the premiership with a loan deal to Sheffield United. I am also reliably informed by my spy at Bramall Lane that was in fact the deal Mr Warnock wanted if Geoff Horsfield went up to Celtic Park and not 500K.

The problem is Gordon Strachan still wants Horsfield to back up the attack at Celtic Park. He fits the bill but will he let Gravesen go to the premiership new boys

GRAYS ATHLETIC to sack JUSTIN EDINBURGH at the end of the season no matter what with GARRY HILL replacing him! he will sign in the summer-
