Football Rumours Archive April 06 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Liverpool will Sign one of Iniesta/Hamsik/Carzola/Renato Agusto for a fee ranging between 14–18 million depending on the player.
The rest of the budget will go into a RB who is good going foward. .Expect 1 of Kuba or Glen Johnson to sign for 8 or 9 million.
Also the funds from the Keane Jan sale will go into signing Diogo Luis Santo from Greek Side Olympiakos who will cost around the 12 million mark but Rafa will also check in on Dzekos situation at wolfsberg.
  AC Milan will try to sign Brede Hangeland from Fulham in the summer. Now to liverpool. I have a list of players that could POSSIBLY coming in. Eto'o will be kept as an option but i think Benitez will attempt to sign Diogo first. Gareth Barry and david silva are obviously being looked at. At the back benitez will try to bring in glen johnson to challenge on the right hand side. I have heard that Benitez has been keeping an eye on young portuguese goalkeeper Rui Patricio who plays for sportimg i believe.
  Im a rangers fan and I have finally faced facts. If we don't get a buyer we are in serious trouble. No nonsence about souness please he has already opted to save southampton instead of us. still a consortium in canada having serious thoughts. Ferguson to move to Qatar 4 the money. Mcgregor to move to Birmingham and the rest eg weir dailly mcculoch to move other places. New management next season if Burnley don't get promoted then Owen Coyle to be our next manager.
  Tevez could be heading back to UP, Kia Joorabchin is leading the buyout of West Ham and his crown jewel is Carlos Tevez, a real possibility.

Juoa Moutinho could be heading to Upton Park this summer, with a club record bid of around 11 million expected from the hammers.

Out from west ham this summer will be, Dyer, Bowyer, Quashie, Davenport, Faubert, Reid, Latuska, Tristan, Di Michalle
With new deals for Rob Green, Lopez, Stanislas
  AFC Arsene Wenger will swoop for a c/b and a young striker in the summer.He has targeted Seba Bassong,Mamadou Sakho and Jack Rodwell for the c/b.The striker will be Serbian starlet Danijel Aleksic from Vojvodina.
Gilles Sunu,Mark Randall and Armand Traore will all be leaving the club.
Henri Lansbury and Fran Merida will be promoted to the first team squad.
  Ted rogers to buy out rangers fc. . . .very interesting,unless he is planning to do it from beyond the grave. . .he passed away 2nd december 2008. . . sometimes its worth checking out your facts
  When sven goran eriksson is manager of sunderland,
he will try to buy these players:

djibril cisse
calum davenport
migel veloso
gary neville
ryan giggs
the two man utd players giggsy and gazza,aren't in SAF's first team plans, so they might wanna move
up north.

european news:

ac milan will make a last gasp attempt to sign diego for around 25million big ones!!!
inter, however, will be selling quaresma to chelsea
in the region of 10–15m,
and will be selling david suazo to newcastle.
  Ive said it before and i will say it again, this is a rumours site, for rumours. Please stop pretending you are some svengali with concrete insider info!!! Les Dechets, seriously i don't care how much you slate liverpool, your not title contenders and therefore no threat! No one knows who LFC will or will not buy but the Diogo rumour does have some legs, so don't automatically write it off! Dechets– you seem to know 'for a fact' a lot about LFC, or are you just taking a pot shot at a better club? Lots of rumours today saying 75–80% of LFC will be sold to the AL KHARAFI family at the end of May??? This is a nespaper rumour so normally id take it with a pinch of salt, but it is also being talked about in Liverpool and at the club (academy level. .). If this happens LFC will have considerably more to spend in the summer, than the rumoured 40–45 mill Rafa has as things stand
  Tony Mowbray to be sacked this week and replaced by Alan Pardew
  Transfers in the summer:

villa and everton will go had to head to sign totenham midfielder jenas.newcastle will pay 6 million for amr zaki and barry will join liverpool
  To the person who said
Safc4eva ! I'm sorry but ur off ur rocker ! David healy to Celtic ????? That's like saying the devil just bought a penthouse in heaven ! Healy is a life long rangers fan and not that long ago played the flute at a fulham v Celtic game !
I think you need to look at history: Kenny Miller played for Rangers twice and Celtic once, Michael Chopra a lifelong Newcastle fan played for Sunderland. There are loads of peopple who have played for rivals so David Healy to eltic is possible.
  Rafa Benitez'z scouts are keeping their close eye on Brazilian Striker Keirrison as he is trying to find a good striker that will play alongside Torres. Currently on loan with Palermo.

Benitez will probably make a £12million bid but he has to fight off the likes of Barcelona, Man Utd and Real Madrid as they are also keeping their close eye on him.
  In Arsene we trust: completely right!
Fabregas will stay AT LEAST until 2014 when jis current contract finishes, it is not likely that AW would even consider a bid from Barcelona/Madrid.
The only possible leaver from midfield would be Emmanuel Eboue, even though he has improved, Eboue still wants more playing time and is a £7 mil target for Blackburn and Sunderland (if SGE comes in.)
What Arsenal need are defenders, having missed out on Steven Mouyokolo(joining Hull in July from Boulogne–Sur–Mer in French Ligue 2), AW will turn to another young U–21 French defender: Mamadou Sakho from PSG, the guy is considered a real talent and is likely to move for around £8 mil+clauses.
Also, if Arsenal were to bring a striker in it would be either Erin Dzeko from Wolfsburg (to whoever said he would go to Sunderland, are you mad? I think you are being warped by the fact you are gonna get relegated! Dzeko is sought after by the TOP european clubs and if an unforseen departure were to occur, Dzeko could step in for about £13 mil. Vedad Ibisevic from Hoffenheim is another possibility (£14 mil)
Finally, could we have a few less Liverpool fans? Apparently your is linked to the whole world, Diogo would never go to Liverpool as he has stated that if he were to move he would move to Everton (the club he supported as a boy) or a big club in Spain/England/Italy. Liverpool will only sign Kuba and Barry if you are lucky this summer.
Cue Uproar. .
Les Dechets
  Man United will pip Barcelona to the signature of Bayern Munich Superstar Franc Ribery. .and this means the end of Ronaldo era at United. he will move on to Real Madrid at a high price which will enable United to make Tevez a permanent united player. united are also interested and may put in a bid for Wolfsburg Striker Edin Jzeko (Spelling??). . .
  Manchester City
Ribery. .£35 mil
Terry. . swap
Drogba. .£24mil
lahm. .£23mil
van buyten. .£6mil
Berbatov. .£24mil
Messi. .£120 mil
Robinho. .swap
Richards. .arsenal. .£9mil
vassell. .wolves. .£1mil
Dunne. .Portsmouth. .£5mil
  Manchester City Rumours !
Straight out of The City of Manchester Stadium, Thierry Henry AND Samuel Eto'o might join City in the summer after Eto'o has been told to kick back and listen to offers, and Henry could be forced out of the Nou Camp because of Injury and a fall out with the board. Don't be suprised if they arrive at City ! Also is that Ronaldinho,Ribery, Toure/Terry will also come in, With Paolo Maldini coming as a defence coach.
  Safc4eva ! I'm sorry but ur off ur rocker ! David healy to Celtic ????? That's like saying the devil just bought a penthouse in heaven ! Healy is a life long rangers fan and not that long ago played the flute at a fulham v Celtic game !

Rangers have 2 possible buyers. One is Edward (ted) Rodgers a canadian communcations mogul an a group of northern Ireland/Scottish business men to be lead by greame souness !
  Liverpool's daniel agger will go to bayern munich in the summer for around(7m–10m).but liverpool would like an exchange deal which could include phillip lahm!

leeds' fabian delph is wanted by man utd, fulham and ac milan. leeds,according to bbc sport, wanted 7m for the talented midfielder.

southampton an man city will have a clearout in the summer, with the saints selling a.surman and saganowski. city,however, are selling their expeirienced players like didi hamann, richard dunne
and darius vassell, all in the region of 3m.

man utd will do well in the transfer window.they want david silva and might do a swap the villa,s
gareth barry and they would give them injury prone owen hargreaves.

  Man Utd Plans For The Summer

Ronaldo–Real Madrid Between 75–115 million
Maybe Berbatov To Italy Only If There Is Offers

Carlos Tevez Will Be Signing For A 20–32 million deal united will own ALLL of tevez's Rights no 3rd party owners he will lower his wage demands and beg MSI to Lower the price as he did when the united loan deal nearly didnt happen when he first signed
Franck Ribery Or David Silva Will Go To United in the summer for deals belived to be around 20 for each of them but with plenty of add ons like if the champions league is won during the intial stay but after a new contract is signed this will be cancelled.

Man Utd Will be a very new look team And after those big buys will concentrate on bringing in youth and since i will be fergies last season he won't spend in jan becasue he would be dipping into The new gaffers Funds Expected to be mourinho or Moyes.

Long Live United :)
  With the rangers managers position set to become vaccant at the end of the season expect to see a few european managers to try and make a stab at it to try to get themselves a name to try and then get the man utd job when it becomes vaccant in a few years time. One name coming up is Roberto Marinez providing swansea don't go up to the premier league.
  Arsenal will sign Joleon Lescott and an english defensive midfielder in the summer.
If cardiff get promoted to the premier league expect to see Aaron Ramsey to go to them on loan.
  Carlos cuellar will make a return to rangers in the summer and will be named captain, this move will be funded by the departures of Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor.
  I recently heard that Ferguson is interested in a couple of young players to replace some of the current squad.O'shea will be sold for around 5 mil and be replaced by Per Mertesacker.Fletcher for Joao Moutinho and he will also sign Obasi/Benzema,Diego Lopez , Gervinho/A.Sanchez/Oliech(third top scorer in the African qualification round)and biggest transfer 50 mil for Sergio Aguero.Berbatov,Nani and Tevez are set to leave

Arsenal are going to be the most active as they sign Diego,Pepe,Podolski,Zhirkov,M'bia and the return of Henry and being joined by Ibrahimovic with Adebayor,Nasri,Vela,Bentdner,Diaby,Rosicky and Gallas all leaving
  Aston Villa will make a shock move by bringing Sulley Muntari back to the premiership as a direct replacement for the departing Barry

O'neil knows he needs to add to the squad other realistic targets that villa hope to finalize deals on include

Stewart Downing – Middlesbrough
Wes Brown – Manchester United
Bafetimbi Gomis – Saint–Etienne
Rat – Shakhtar Donetsk
Ashkan Dejagah – Wolfsburg

Barry (o'neil wants to include Daniel Agger as part of the deal)

  Hi, i am a regular poster and viewer of this website, i have been researching through papers, official club websites and what not,
first of all id like to talk about manchester united FC, starting with the longest running transfer saga in recent football history and i have now come to the conclusion that ronaldo will be going nowhere in the summer, simply for the fact we won't sell him, he has 3 years left on his contract and with the club trying to lure him into a new contract with a 170,000 pound a week deal, it seems as if the winger will still be at old trafford for atleast one more year.

The rooney,fergi bust up thing is complete nonsense. if it was true it would of been in the papers the next day, it wasnt and i have read today on two websites that fergi claims the bust–up is quite simply tabliods, this rumour itself was made by football legend Mark Lawrence.
if you wish to know more about it then visit sky sports new or bbc sport.

The tevez situation is one for me that i do find hard to answer, he has said a number of times he wants to stay and united have said a number of times they want to keep him, but who know what going to happen? Tevez has just came out and said he would drop his wage demands to be in the red of united next season. so maybe he'll sign? hopefully he does.

Owen Hargreaves has alot been posted around on here when you could use common sense or facts with this one, united knew about his troublesome knee injury before they signed him and why would they let a player they signed for a free in the region of 20 million go for less than half that? when on his day is one of the best CM in europe?, onto the facts side of things quite clearly Hargreaves wants to stay with the world champions and Ferguson has claimed that hargreaves is very much still in his plans for next year. his injury this year should be his lasts for sometime, the operation he had would repair the damaged ligaments making them stronger than they were before leaving his knee's in perfect condition. so next year we could have the old hargreaves back on the field.
the nani situation is one the beweilds me aswell as the anderson one, starting with nani he could well be on his way out of old trafford but i highly doubt it, he is still one of the most promising young talents on the planet and he can be as good as his portugese team mate ronaldo one day. but no facts on this one just my opinion i expect nani to be at old trafford for a long time to come. now on to Anderson one of the brightest young players in the world, he is going nowhere this year or the next, Ferguson has said that anderson is a top player that he got his value for money for, with scholes coming to the end of his career you need atleast 3 top quality CM the others being carrick and hargreaves, not forgetting the great squad CM like fletcher and gibson.

Transfer newss now, this information is from my source, i will give you the players name,the club(s) involved and the price tag. my source i regulary 81% correct, i am unable to give you a name but he is an ex agent and is still in regular contact with the football world.

Bentley – Middlesbrough – P/E for downing
Adriano – Liverpool – 9 million
Alex – Manchester City – 12 million
Witsel – Manchester united – 7 million
Luis Ronaldo – West Ham – 1.7 million
Ronaldinho – Manchester City – 17 million
Gudjohnson – Tottenham Hotspur – 6 million
Peter Crouch – Manchester City – 11 million
R.Santa cruz – Real Madrid – 20 million (+ Saviola)
J.Cole – Barcelona – Hleb + 8 million
(If Rijkaard takes over)
Thierry Henry – Manchester City – 22 million
Pavylchenko – Aston Villa – carew + 4 million
Arteta – Aston Villa – 14 million + Gardner.
  Breaking news should not be revealing this as it might leak my source.

Ferguson, MacGregor and Boyd are all set to leave Rangers in the summer, being told they have no future at the club. New manager to come, and yes it is Paul Le Guen, he feels dishearted by the way he left and feels he owes it to SDM and the fans to make Rangers a youthful force like Ajax. Expect some interesting activity in the transfer market with youth being the priority, Mendes will become captain. Walter will move but Mr. McCoist will remain along with most of the backroom staff as Le Guen feels he is the man to help forge the dressing room.

By the way the Fox and Hound in Bridge of Weir do a lovely Sunday lunch.
