Football Rumours Archive February 08 2007


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

Jose Mourinho belives 17-year old winger Scott Sinclair (currently on loan at Plymouth Argyle) will be a major player next season. JM could be prepared to let SWP or Robben go in the summer to accomodate the flying winger. JM rates him as a much better prospect than Theo Walcott!

Chelsea have struck up a partnership agreement with Plymouth where the Premiership side's young reserves and youth players will be offered out on loan to the Championship side. Plymouth manager Ian Holloway has struck up a friendship and mutual understanding with Mourinho after the pair met to discuss Sinclair's loan move.

JM sees Plymouth as one of the rising stars of English football and a club with massive potential considering the catchment area and has been impressed with how the club is structured. Investment discussions with Roman Abramovich are also in the early stages. This could see Chelsea assist Argyle with the completion of their ground redevelopment and build a new state of the art training and medical facility on their Harpers Park training ground.

I have a friend who works in the commercial department at Tottenham. He says that insiders have told him that Manchester United will swap Alan Smith and Kerian Richardson for Aaron Lennon and £5m.

Major epl and liga rumours. Man Utd will sign huntelaar for 14 million. next they r targeting makelele as he s free,, ,, , Barcelona will sign albelda from valencia. Portsmouth are after Ajax midfeilder gabri. Newcastle will sell luque in June. they r behind Wes brown. and Chelsea want 2 sign klose. 100% true. u heaard from me madcow

Rincon, former United player, is now with Inter. He is currently on loan with another Italian club.

Curtis Davies is holding out for a move to Manchester United. He supports Man United and his footballing hero is Eric Cantona.

I'm not saying that he will not move anywhere else eventually but, Man United would be his dream move and, he figures that he can stay and grow as a player at West Brom for now and, hopefully attract United in the future.

Chelsea will stun the footballing world this summer with the capture of Ronaldinho, mumurings of discontent at the nou camp, abramovich is reportedly gona flex his muscles to the tune of 55 million, DO NOT TAKE THIS RUMOUR LIGHTLY, CHELSEA ARE GETTIN GOOD VIBES FROM THE GREAT ONE, RONS AGENT IS HIS BROTHER WHO IM TOLD WANTS TO TAKE HIS BROTHERS EARNING CAPACITY THRU THE ROOF!REPUTEDLY HES ON A MEAGRE 90,000 A WEK AT BARCA, MICKEY MOUSE MONEY COMPARED TO CHELSEA PLAYERS!watch out for this one lads.

The truth is that Mourinho will be leaving Chelsea in the summer even if they somehow claw the title away form leaders Man U. A hoard of Chelsea players are set to do the same, including outcasts such as Glen Johnson at loan at pompey, Geremi, Carlton Cole, SWP. Also expect some 1st team players leave if mourinho does, including Lamps, Robben, Kalou and possibly Terry.

People have been reporting that thierry Henry will leave Arsenal for Liverpool, this in fact may no longer be true, as he has claimed that he will stay at Arsenal, but Barcelona will not give up on him.

As Mido has claimed he wants to leave Spurs, expect Jol to try and raid Italy for a striker, names on his shortlist include Adriano, Inzaghi and Gilardino.

Stop sending rumours about David Villa swapping Valencia for Liverpool please, it's really getting on my nerves going on this site and Reading these false rumours. Villa says he won't leave the Che and is now valued at £100 million. However, we will sign M. G. Pedersen for £8 million, Padelli if loan spell is successfull for £2 million and J. Mascherano for a free transfer if the Premier League lets the transfer go through. Thanks, =p1=

If Tottenham fail to sign Gareth Bale in the summer, Martin Jol is prepared to offer Chelsea around £10m for Wayne Bridge.

However, with Jose Mourinho keen to land Aaron Lennon, Chelsea are keen offload Bridge and Arjen Robben, plus cash, as part of a £25m deal.

If West Ham go down this season, a number of the squad will be off-loaded to ease the huge wage bill. Curbs will then have a massive rebuilding exercise to undertake. Out will go:

Anton Ferdinand - Arsenal

Matt Upson - relegation clause in contract!

Nigel Reo-Coker - Bolton/ Everton

Yossi Benayoun - Fulham/ Spurs

Dean Ashton - Fulham

Carlos Tevez - Man United! Will go anyway.

Man Utd r going to get dos santos not Liverpool who the hell said that you don't know wat you are saying

utd r going to get Cahill for 15 million bt is that worth it

also I heard about kaka bt he is to expensive bt the glazer said thy will fund us for a big player and kaka is a big player so y not lets wait and see

To the one who ask for Brazilian player Rincon : he plays now for Empoli in Italy. In fact, he doesn't really play : only 10 minutes this season in Italian cup match against Inter.

As far as I know, the guy asking about Carlos Eduardo de Castro Lourenšo Aka Rincon, well as far as I know he's at Empoli in Italy as part of the Maxwell deal, seeing as Maxwell was on loan at Empoli and sort of a trade I think. He was on loan at Sao Paolo from 2003 to 2006 then obviously went to Empoli I guess. But there's alot of rumours saying that Manchester United actually didn't buy Rincon, it was just made up so who knows lol Anywas rumours ignore what the press are saying about Torres not wanting to Come Utd because its lies, He has pubicly said he would like to team up with Wayne Rooney. Hargreaves will hopefully come to us in the summer for 15 million, Bale well we might get him but so might Spurs n Arsenal. Couple of lads from Sporting Lisbon might appear on the back of the papers, Nani, Veloso, Moutinho, Djalˇ. I think Nani and Moutinho would cost around £14 million for the pair which I think would be good business. Razor

CSKA Moscow playmaker Daniel Carvalho could be on the move this summer with several Premiership clubs monitoring his situation. I hear that Arsenal are leading the race to sign him, but would ship him out on loan next season to avoid work permit problems. Carvalho is eager to try himself in a competitive league and Russia isn't challenging enough for the Brazilian, so a move to England or Spain looks on the cards.

If, I mean WHEN Charlton stay up they will sign in the summer:

Thomas Gravesen 2m

Marlon Harewood 4m

Cristian Bolanos 3m

Zheng Zhi 1. 5m

Scott Carson loan extension

Charlton will also keep prized assets- Darren Bent, Luke Young and Andy Reid

They will sell:

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink FREE

Omar Pouso FREE

BRyan Hughes 0. 5m

Jon Fortune 1. 5m



To whoever thinks Leroy Lita will go to Blackburn as a part exchange for Francis Jeffers. UMMM I think not. Lita will stay at Reading as he on fire and won't move whilst Reading are doing so well and also he came from Bristol and returns there all the time (albeit mostly to get arrested) as it is only 45 minutes down the M4. Plus why would anyone want Francis Jeffers?

Anyway expect Sidwell to sign a new contract now that Reading are 6th and looking good to stay in the premiership.

God people please stop posting rubbish on this site yes it's a rumours site, but it's not a Football Manager 2007 forum, all the players the top teams supposedly buying are the same as for the illustrious PC game please get a grip n put some real good meaty rumours on here.

Anyway enough moaning, the takeover for LFC what a deal, no definite figure as to how much we can spend no £120 mil or £150 so stop putting figures to it. Gillet and hicks have stated that they will

create an unbeatable team, money being no option, as the prize for being top of prem next year is so big they will get big lump back.

Expect youth system to exceed Arsenals amazing system within 3 years, the stadium to be outstanding and the football to match (fingers crossed) .

Expect Bentitez to atempt to get:

Alonso + cash for Aguerro (one for the future) ?

Reina + cash for Villa (looking dubious) ?

Huntelaar (would partner Kuyt perfectly) ?

Kewell + cash for Lennon (need good right wing) ?

Joey Barton cover for Stevie G (unlikely though) ?

There will be one massive massive supprise

Plus a host of youngters, believe it or not Bale, Micah Richards and Messi all young but have bags of talent) Messi also V good mates wi Masher!

My uncle's friend is a scout at PSV.

He says that Chelsea have been offering Lampard around to top euro clubs, but due to his terrible England form, and a bad season with Chelsea, no-one is interested, even at a cut-price £11m

I have it on good authority that Iain Dowie is being lined up to replace Mike Newell at Luton in the summer. Newell is desperate to get out of Luton, but doesn't want to leave them in a mess, and has vowed to get them out of the trouble they are in at the moment

This is not a rumour but indeed a fact, my brother is the assistant physio at Liverpool, and the tranfer targets that will be coming are.

Rafael Van Der Vart 10m, Leighton Baines (lifelong kopite) 7. 5m, Micha Richards 11m Plus Sami Hyppia Rafa wants him to play centre back, David Villa done deal 28m and also Gamst Pedersson 12m done deal, and also he will make a 15m bid for Aaron Lennon. This is gospal, get your house on it. The man in the know Jaythedon

To the guy who thinks Mascherano is going to replace Alonso. Aren't you the same guy that said he would replace Gerrard? Not to be too blunt, but you're wrong. The Spanish contingent will only be strengthened in the future. Last week Arbeloa, the new right back said that LFC is considered (in Spain) to be the biggest club in England. That's high praise and shows what respect the Reds have on the continent. As I stated in more detail before, Masch will take over for Zenden in the rotation not for Alonso, Gerrard, or Sissoko. I won't rehash the reasons again. Also, with the influx of money, don't think it will all be spent on new players, some of our best players will get new contracts with better salaries. Other players staying at their respective teams come summer: Gerrard, Alonos, Crouch, Terry Henry, Drogba, Villa, Huntelaar, Luis Garcia, Ronaldhino, Mourinho. Those leaving: Lampard, Lennon, Schevchenko, Bellamy, Robben, Lehman, C Ronaldo, Torres, Klose, Upson, Van der Vaart, Dudek.

Mufc will sign Bale 4 11 mil and also nani, o'shea to go aswell as fletcher and Heinze. So maybe a bid for miguel of 6 mil no more. Saf won't sign Hargreaves as he can take a cheaper route and sign Mavuba for as little as 6 mil.

The first player who will come to Liverpool after take over success is BASTIAN SHWASTENEIGER. watch out this space



Steve Sidwell - he's already signed a pre-contract agreement but it won't be announced until the season is over.

James McCarthy - A deal has been done for 350k and he'll join the reserves in the summer.

Anatoliy Tymoschyuk - He is our top target to replace Neil Lennon and can be bought for £4m

James McFadden - May sign on a swap deal from Everton involving Kenny Miller! If this doesn't go through Celtic will make a £2m offer for Stephen Naismith who's agent is his father and a Celtic season ticket holder, although Stephen himself supports Kilmarnock

Andrey Voronin - Best man at Tymoschyuks wedding is likely to seal a free transfer on a pre-contract to join his best mate.





Gravesen - if a £2. 5m bid is made



Miller - maybe in the Swap!

Rafa's been sniffing round la liga again and has identified a number of players (both established and promising) to boost his squad with his bumper takeover windfall. The only silly money he will spend is on David Villa and will pay up to £25m. Other established stars include Alves (Sevilla - £10m), Iniesta (Barca - £8m) and Pablo (At Mad - £9m) . Yound stars include Dos Santos (Barca), Raul Albiol (Valencia), Aguero (At Mad) Silva (Valencia), Raul Garcia (Osasuna), Javi Martinez (Bilbao) and Navas (Sevilla) . Don't expect all these but maybe three/ four. Expect the likes of Hyypia, Dudek, Fowler, Crouch, Zenden and Garcia to make way.

Former Arsenal captain PatRick Vieira will alert Premiership managers this summer by declaring his interest in returning to England. Just like dozens of other Serie A players, Vieira will look to get away from crisis-torn Italy and the Frenchman has earmarked a return to his most successful country as a player. Arsenal got nine years out of him, but it's unknown whether Arsene Wenger will be looking to bring him back to the club as the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Gilberto, Abou Diaby and Tomas Rosicky currently occupy the central midfield positions. Manchester United tried to tap him up during his Arsenal days, and could revive their interest, while Liverpool's takeover could fund a surprise move to take him to Anfield.
