McLeish to West Ham reunion with Sullivan

Rafa will look to raid West Ham in the summer if they are relegated. He is targeting Mathew Upson, Carlton Cole and Jack Collison. Rafa wants to add as many home–grown players as possible to his squad due to the quota that falls into place from next season. Upson will be available for £7million as in the Summer he will be in the last 12 months of his contract and David Sullivan has already stated that he will sell instead of him running down his contract. Carlton Cole will be available for around £10–12million and Collison around £6million.

Chelsea rumours !


07 Feb 2010 20:13:39
Joe Hart won't be joining Arsenal in the summer he'll be joining Birmingham City the goalkeeper has already told his parent club Manchester City that he is keen to join Birmingham and he will hand in a transfer request if that is what it takes to get his move. He is originally from The Midlands his family/relatives live there so he is very keen on a move there. He has also become very fond of the club during his 6 month stay. Birmingham are a very ambitious club why would he want to join Arsenal a team that has been stagnating for many years? It's even possible that in the next couple of years Birmingham will be BIGGER than Arsenal.

Correction – united offered 9mil plus nani, that won't be happening now as nani is playing superb, also united won't sell anderson, especially for 10mil as they turned down a bid for more than that from p.s.g a week ago, fergie will give him the same treatment he gave nani till anderson pulls his finger out!!!

expect di maria at old trafford in the summer for around 20mil, its all cash benfica want and 20mil will be enough, you will also see a goalkeeper, maybe akinfeev!!!

that will be it though as united will only have around 30mil to spend, but the sales of tosic & foster will help go towards the purchases of di maria & a goalkeeper.

Bristol City will let Lee Johnson join Notts County on loan next week after a loan spell at derby ended


07 Feb 2010 17:02:31
Anderson to Lyon for £10m. United are not going to replace him with another midfielder. Darron Gibson has been promised more playing time for next season at United so it looks like Gibson will be the one replacing Anderson.

The £10m from Anderson deal will be put towards the signing of Angel Di Maria or David Silva in the summer after the World Cup.

United tried for Maria in January with a £15m plus Nani offer but Benfica turned it down.

David Silva is claimed to be 'thrilled' to have been linked with a 'great' club like United and he is interested in joining the reds to replace the 'Welsh Wonder' that is Ryan Giggs.

Liverpools hot prospect Jay spearing on loan to Leeds until end of the season deal will be done tomorrow.


07 Feb 2010 13:38:06
I am not a Coventry fan, but I have information that The Sky Blues are looking to sign a few yougsters from the top Premiership Teams, to help the club push for promotion next season.
Some may be on loan, others will be permanent as their respective managers do not think they will quite make the grade.
Chris Coleman is interested in Wojciech Szczesny, Harvard Nordtveit, Francis Coquelin, Jay Emmanuel–Thomas, Henry Lansbury and Jay Simpson of Arsenal, Nemanja Matic, Fabio Borini and Jack Cork of Chelsea, Richie De Laet and Tom Cleverley of Manchester United and Kristian Nemeth and Daniel Ayala of Liverpool.

Now not all of these will happen obviously, they are just players that the manager is interested in.

WHO WROTE THIS?? "Still smarting from the loss of Merida and Fabregas, Barcelona is prepared to raid Arsenal's youth system right under its nose and offer a higher wage and more time to striker Benik Afobe, whom many consider the second coming of Drogba. This will happen by summer" barca tried for benik a few months ago, one youth was tempted and left for barca but benik said no he staying where he is, fabregas has all but said he will retire to barca so going nowhere, camackh, sakho, hazard and green/hart, matiudi will sign in summer.

Apparently after personally witnessing Sunderlands latest horror show, club owner Ellis Short has instructed chairman Nial Quinn that Bruce has 3 games left to turn things around.

To the person who said this:
"Joey barton looks set to join west ham in the summer , also look out for charles n'zogbia going to upton park also . fact."

I highly doubt that Joey Barton would join West Ham in the summer. I have two reasons for this..
1) Sullivan has already said that West HAm has a surplus of midfielders so why would he take on another?
2) Barton has not performed well for many seasons nd West Ham want and need players who have consitently good form. In plain speak.. hes not up to the standard of West Ham or the prem.

N'Zogbia is more likely as West Ham are interested i n a player who can play on the left of midfield AND play upfron an offer goalscoring opertunities.

Matty Upson is expected to go in thesummer to the highest bidder. This in mind, he will probably go for around £15 million and Zola (if he is still there) would buy a new centre back and probably a right back.

When the Loan market opens up Notts County will take Bristol Citys Lee Johnson on Loan until end of season and he will sign permanantly if Notts find investment

GK – Joe Hart/Robert Green
DF – Cesar Azpilicueta/Simon Kjaer/Stefan Savic
MF – Eden Hazard/Stephen Ireland/Blaise Matuidi/Scott Parker/Moussa Sissoko
ST – Marouane Chamakh/Edin Dzeko/Loic Remy/Mohamed Zidan

Leaving The Emirates will be Manuel Almunia, Phillipe Senderos, Mickail Silvestre, Sol Campbell, Armand Traore, Denilson, Fran Merida, Eduardo.

Coventry City are interested in the following players for the loan window and the summer.

GK – Joe Murphy/Kasper Schmeichel
DF – Leon Barnett/Stephen Jordan
MF – Gary McSheffrey/Jack Cork/Francis Coquelin/Adam Lallana
ST – Tamas Priskin/Charlie Austin/Rickie Lambert/Jordan Rhodes/Lee Novak/Simeon Jackson

Outgoing will be Stephen Wright (Tranmere, Free), Marcus Hall (Walsall, Free), Elliott Ward (Free), Michael Doyle (Leeds, 350k), Dimi Konstantopoulos (Aris, Free), Isaac Osbourne (Southampton, 400k).
Kieren Westwood could possibly leave for either Sunderland, Tottenham, Everton or Wigan. If he does leave, it will be for no less than 4m.
I have heard that Sunderland may offer 2.75m + Marton Fulop for the highly–rated Republic Of Ireland International.

Still smarting from the loss of Merida and Fabregas, Barcelona is prepared to raid Arsenal's youth system right under its nose and offer a higher wage and more time to striker Benik Afobe, whom many consider the second coming of Drogba. This will happen by summer.


07 Feb 2010 05:08:01
Chamakh to arsenal confirmed. Senderos will be leaving and sakho to replace him. Fabregas to be offered new contract. Fabianski to leave and neuer to replace him. All transfer after world cup.


07 Feb 2010 06:30:35
Liverpool will announce the signing of Milan Jovanovic on Wednesday. He will jet into Liverpool to sign a £50k contract over 3 years, with the option of a 4th year. Rafa will also splash out on his defence this summer. Taye Taiwo has been his number 1 target for left back for quite some time and he would have bid for him in January, had it not been for the Africa Cup of Nations. He will bid to Marseille £14m for the versatile defender, who can operate on the left of midfield as well. With Martin Skrtel on his way to Juventus with Fabio Aurelio in the summer for £9m, Rafa has identified two replacements for him. Gary Cahill has been in impressive form this season and has shown that he can score goals from outside the box, something not even the best centre backs can do. He is Bolton's top scorer this season and is also English, which Liverpool do not have a lot of in their squad. A transfer for Cahill would cost £10m. If this falls through, Rafa will have Daniel Agger call his countryman Simon Kjaer to join him at Anfield. The impressive defender has caught the eyes of many of Europe's elite and will be much sought after in the summer. He has a buy out clause in his contract set at £12m and Rafa intends to meet it. If Philipp Degen decides to leave Anfield for Germany again, Rafa also has Vasilis Torosidis on his shortlist as a replacement and will meet his €7m buy out clause if need be. Rafa will also bid for Juan Mata to play on the left hand side. Valencia are interested in Riera as his replacement and a swap deal is very likely.£10m plus Riera should do it. Also leaving Anfield next summer will be Nabil El Zhar as he will be turning 24 this year and has not yet broken into the team on a regular basis. He is wanted in Spain by Racing Santander and Espanyol with the latter the most likely to sign him for £2m

Just to round that up for you:
In: Cahill/Kjaer £12m, Taiwo £14m, Jovanovic free, Mata £20m and Torosidis €7m.
Out: Skrtel £8m Aurelio free both Juventus, Degen £3m German team, Riera p/ex Valencia and El Zhar Espanyol £2m

Johnson Agger Cahill/Kjaer Taiwo
Mascherano Aquilani
Maxi Gerrard Mata



thanks guys

Liverpool's New Stanley ParkStadium will be called adidas Arena. The deal is worth £157m over the next 12 seasons. The original name that will be used for the World Cup in 2018 should England win the right to host, will be Stanley Park.


07 Feb 2010 06:50:05
A source close to the Glazers tells me that ManU will put it a big bid for Lukas Podolski this summer after Berbatov is sold.


07 Feb 2010 09:33:00
If west ham loose to birmingham on wednesday night zola will be sacked and mark hughes or coppell will replace and sullivan wanted to keep zola but the dissapointing draw at home to blackburn and the defeat to burnley have forced there hand.
