  Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Manchester United in the January transfer window. He will join Real Madrid for £40 million plus Wesley Sneijder and Jan Klass Huntelaar. Jan Klass Huntelaar will be the Carlos Tevez replacement and Benzema will not be signed by United. Huntelaar has been a long term target for Manchester United, United were after him 2 seasons ago and january will be the time where they will finally sign this target.
  News from Hillsborough and Upton Park
Hammers to sign Mark Beevers and Tommy Spurr for a combined fee of £3m plus Freddie Sears to the Owls on loan for the season as part of the deal.
Also Joe Ledley to sign for the Hammers next week for £4m plus a now fully fit Danny Gabbidon valued at £1.5m (£5.5m total deal)
Ledley to sign a 5 year contract as will both Beevers and Spurr
  Forest deals to be tied up this week


James Perch 2M to Portsmouth
Brendan Moloney Season Loan to Ebbsfleet


Joel Lynch 750K from Brighton
Andrew Surman 1M + from Southampton
  Pure speculation from arsenal fan. .

i reckon dzeko sounds like our best replacement for adebayor, maybe worth getting martins on the cheap as well to bulk up squad. i seem to remember ranieri being interested in eboue, so possible swapo deal involving chiellini? and whoever said marcos senna isn't worth 10m is talking out their arse i reckon. he is still one of the most solid and stable in his position in the wordl, and has been quality for villareal this season. he may be 32, but if you look at giggs or scholes over the last 2–3 seasons, their work would have been worth 10m to another club. go for yaya toure and possibly senna as back up, prefer these to toulalan or inler. in defence, it would be worth keeping gallas, but if we can't lescott would be a great buy or (as ive said) chiellini. don't reckoin we need new keeper if you look at almunia this season, and fabianski looks good enough for back up already.

come on you gooners
  Burnley are interested in signing Kazakhstan striker Sergei Ostapenko from FC Aktobe for a fee of around £800,000. In addition to this, they will sign Sean St Ledger from Lancashire rivals Preston for £2 Million. However, neither of these signings will take place until early July. Also, they will look to bring in Roman Bednář from West Brom for around £2.5 Million.

  Liverpool take–over news

Richard branson will follow up his investment in the brawn F1 team by striking up a deal to buy liverpool for roughly £430 million. Hes spoken with the americans twice in the last month and they could be tempted but a sticking point is the re–financing in july. if it happens, then it won't happpen and the yanks will stay for the forseeable future.

  To the guy who said:
''Stoke City Manager, Tony Pulis is looking very closely at West Ham's out of sorts Lucas Neill to bolster his already strong backs. Through connections in Australia, Neill is rumoured to be looking for a challenge, and is a big beleiver he would fit into the mould of the 'no nonsense' Stoke squad.

He is also said to be a big fan of Pulis, who guided Stoke to a credible mid table finish.''

Funny you should say that, My Dad had Mr Pulis in his cab not so long ago and as a West Ham fan who was unhappy with Neill at that time asked him for his opinions on him and he replied ''Unreliable and Overrated''
Definately going stoke then :S

And finally to LFC supporters, who ain't got much money so please stop spreading rumours of Silva, Tevez etc going to Anfield!
  1st David Moyes does not need to sell, but if he chose to sell Roger Lescott to city –12 Million wouldn't buy his right boot (and he's left footed) !!
you would be looking to at least double that.
i expect Osman will also be sold –maybe to blackburn or wigan

Everton will sell Anichebe this summer –he will go to Cardiff in a swap and cash deal for Ledley(good riddance) –
MBia (rennes) and Delph ( leeds) will join ledley –castillo and jacobsen will be offered loan extensions –and i expect Owen will sign on a deal not dissimailar to saha
– the cash we have will be spent on moutinho, and a striker –who i fancy will be Wagner Love (cska)
but what do i know i know im only the manager!!
  To All Pompey fans, your takeover has not yet been completed so please stop linking Mega–money players to your club as at the moment it does not seem a great place to be, you don't even have a full time manager! And if big 4 clubs become knocking for players such as Glen Johnson and Niko Krancar, DO NOT expect them to say, whether you have bundles of money or not!
  Everton will annouce a significant investment in the next 7–10 days. Rumoured to be in excess of 300 million ponds.

This will pave the way for not only confirmation of the finace required for the move to a new stadium but also investment in playng staff.

Lescott will be sold as there are concerns with his fitness – destinaion Man City PX for Dunne and Hart.

All other signings are being being shielded at present, helped by the wild rumours circulted such as Owen,Martins etc.

  To the clown who wrote

The Mighty Burnley Transfer roumors
i now people at turf moor and these are possible transfers

Sean St Ledger (PNE) 2Million
Darren O'dea (Celtic) 1.5 million
Steven Fletcher (Hibs) 4 million
Salif Diao (Stoke) Free
Maby Andrew Driver
  Whoever said Raul to leave Real Madrid on that "outs" list, are you for real?! For one, he will never leave, he IS Real Madrid, like Gerrard is Liverpool, Giggs ManU, Messi prob will become Mr Barcelona. Perez loves him that much he asks his opinion on transfers and who to appoint as coach! And as for saying you want him out, he was by far our best player last season, and one of the few to show any commitment week in, week out, he ran himself into the ground. Over the last few season he has got back to the form that people talking about him all those years ago, only he no longer fashionable to write or talk about as far as the press is concerned!

Anyway, no rumours, just common sense. Don't be surprised to see Real get Kaka AND Ronaldo or another similar big name such as Ribery AS A BARE MINIMUM. Perez will want to close the gap on Barca and the rest of europe's elite very quickly and will restructure big time this year with players who can sustain that higher level for good few years, negating the need for big names year after year. Galacticos all at once this time.
  Realistic Rangers And Celtic Rumours !!

To The Guy That Said No Chance To Hutton Returning To Ibrox. Tottenham. Have Failed To Come Up With The Last 4mill Installment therefore a return could be possible as they don't need the money. Barry Is Ofski If The Offer Is Right Unless A Years Deal Can Be Made.

3 More signings this summer
Sears Loan

Strafford has stabilised the club and is looking for investment in the US and is confident of doing this by December, it won't be a huge investment maybe £20million this will go on improving infrastructure and players. Laws won't be given a huge war chest but wednesday will be able to pay fees for players.
Strafford is also looking to get grants to improve Hillsbourghs facilities for 2014 world cup.
Overall an interesting season at hillsbourgh, and with the new signings and maybe some quality in January hopefully a successful season getting back to were we belong as the biggest and best side in the city and back in the Premier League

  These are not rumours really they are just young hot prospects.
Robert Lewandowski – He is a 20 year old polish striker. He plays for Lech Poznan and he was top scorer of the polish 1st division at the age of only 19.
The Bender twins (no joke intended) – They are 19 and both central midfielders. They are german and play for 1860 munich.
  Liverpool will buy lavezzi for somewhere around 26 million as they allready submitted a bid for 20 mill but got turned down
  To the idiot that said this
"V of Hesselink – 4m to PSV
Samaras – 2m to Panathanikos
Nakamura – 2m to Espanyol/Yokahama
Lee Naylor – 2m to Wolves
Paul Hartley – 1m to Ipswich/Hannover 96
Expect this team to win the SPL very easily, but more importantly achieve Celtic's highest ever Champions League finish – there's rumours of a Semi–final at Parkhead flying around. .you heard it hear first."

Nakamura's contract has expired therfore no–one would have to pay for him. He will probably go to Yoko Marino's anyway ( preffered choice )
JVOH 4MILLION?? you are having a laugh, celtic would bite your hand off if 1/2 that had been offered.
Rumour of semi final??? are you on crack? how in the name of god can you say something so stupid as this? im a true celtic fan and i think that it is way too far–fetched.
Get real mate, get off your ps3 and pro ev!!

Real Rumours!!

Mowbray as new manager

Fletcher (hibs) 4m
McCarthy (hamilton)1.5m

Expect some of the reserves to feature more next season

McCourt,Koki,Ferry,Hutchy etc

True Tim

Ok this is who i personally think will be signed this summer. . .

In reality lets be honest we don't have a 100mil for transfers so im going to be blunt with my idea of who will be signed.

12mil– glen johnson its a high possibilty but now with a hand full of clubs interested this mite not happen. If stevie G can pursue him while on international dutie i for 1 would be happy to see him at the club!

18mil– david silva with all the media attension around this player and the link with the club things seem to a bit shady! In my eyes this could happen and i would love to see it. It gets me thinking why would rafa talk about this transfer ages before the transfers even began!? Grant someone snitched on the deal but why would rafa talk openly about this possible deal? It mite well be a smoke screen for david villa!? After all he did inquire last summer for him just before parry bought keane!

9mil– tucay sanli hes cheap got prem experince, top qaulity goal pocher with quality vision and creativity. I for 1 would have been prefered him as a signing over keane any day!! Could well happen.

These 3 in my mind are the most possible, just like any1 reading this page i also want to be suprised with a wish list of top notch quality players that's what transfer season is all about quessing and hoping, but ya never know as a footy fan who your gonna get on your team! As a lpool fan lets hope rafa gets some quality players and not free b's.

peace out me be going to sleep.

DON'T KNOW SHOIT!, LIVERPOOL OWNERS HAVE TO RE–FINANCE LIVERPOOLS DEBT!!!!!liverool fc have only around 20–30 m, to spend on transfers once again, money has to be brought in before any realistic targets can be met, if Statler & Waldorf,( hicks and gillett)for the kids!!!!, can sell sum of their assets in america, then lfc may gain sum more transfer funds, but the deadline of july 31st will be make or break and will be far to late, liverpool and spurs both made a bid for barry, but got beaten by man city!!!!! full stop. personally i don't think silva will cut it in the hustle and bustle of the premier league, tuncay may come, but for no where near 9 m, more like 4–5m, , not worth it for a sub!!!, glen johnstone, should have been cumin to us as part of the loan agreement for pennat, NOT CROUCH, BUT IT'S ONLY A FIRST OPTION AS BASED ON A PRICE FROM LAST YEAR, and after an outstanding season (best right back in p.l.), chelsea, will probably get him, all this balls about 20m for a goal scorer who will sit on the bench for half the season is craipe!, lavetzi, (less than 20 goals in siria a. .pull my chuff)!!!!, look for people like, sneaky bid for jermaine beckford, will be nearer the mark, and more trainee's and reserves to come through, can't see past 20–30 m for the gaffa to spend until we get rid of george and tom ( ROLL ON THE DAY!!!!!)
J496, YNWA
  Stephane Mbia (centre mid) and Victor Obina (Right winger /striker from Inter – this time with work permit) nailed on for Everton.Moutinho all but done £14Mill,
The rest will be free agents or loans as no cash for transfer fees.
£22 mill to spend and that's yer lot.
  Bristol City News

Missed the shut–off time for bbc 606 so. .

A friend of mine living in Seattle has been emailing me saying theres a buzz around Seattle that striker Fredy Montero is joining bristol city from Seattle Sounders FC, he told me 1.2 mil dollars so 750k ish. He also said he's owned by a columbian club. .???

My friend has ties with the youth set–up at Seattle sounders, he usually has juicy gossip from the MLS(which usually is right), never much related to english football, but this could be intresting, he sounds a bit tasty and seems to score a few goals. .only 21 and st quick apparently.

Do we need another maynard? I'd prefer a bigger 'foil' but hey, atleast GJ seems to be looking around

Van Nistlrooy, Sol Campbell, Lucas Neill, Downing, Zigic, Butt and Darren Bent all in (all for around £30m in total, leaving another 30–40m to spend elsewhere!)

Whitehead, Nosworthy, Kenwynne Jones, Healy, McShane are four of the dead cert casualties.

This is nailed on stuff gents – You'llthank me for this!

Ps, Heard about Becks going to Newcastle? – Dream on you dillusional geordie scum, I mean Beckford of Leeds! LMFAO!

The overall wags will decrease because of departures of Hyypia & pennant who were both on big salaries.
  I am a serving police officer with Merseyside police. Last Friday, I had reason to stop silver Mercedes in the Walton district of Liverpool. The driver was travelling at 47mph in 30mph zone (dangerous). Well it turned out that the driver was Carlos Tevez. I booked Mr Tevez for speeding. As I was doing a routine check on the car with the station, I heard Tevez phone a Mr Kenwright (Everton chairman) to tell him he was delayed, but would make it to Goodison soon.
  With Lfc appointing a new head of youth development joining the club look out for liverpool bringing in some stars from the lower leagues.
Joe mattock LB
Owen Garvan Cm

These names are fact , i am not saying we will sign them but the club are looking at young british players who have some experience and who would provide back up, also to help save money and our main targets.
Tuncay to join in the next two weeks, but don't know whether am happy or not yet.

The man with the know.!!!!! Jimmy Snow
  The latest coming out of Anfield !!!!!!!

As per usual the Scum Tabloids have gone for the throat of LFC by saying they are in Financial meltdown . The truth of the matter is that most LFC fans could see this coming a year ago when Botchitt & Scarper landed the club with a £350mil loan . Kop Holdings is a seperate part of the actual Football Club . The football club has made a significant profit for the 2008–2009 season .

But , the re–financing with RBS needs to be completed by 29th July 2009 . The LATEST news is that RBS will REFUSE to agree to the deal . RBS have informed the Yanks that this is their FINAL decision . The situation with the Government & the Global Recession are the main reasons but they are also believed to be FURIOUS that the Yanks have still not added ANY of their own money to help ease the loan .

I can reveal that the Americans are now absolutely desperate to find either 50% investment or complete takeover . Both Americans have enlisted their own people to search the Globe for this investment , but , nothing at the moment is forthcoming . The reason for this is that the potential investors know that the later they leave it to July 29th the cheaper they can get the club .

The Americans will 100% be out of the club by July 29th .

I work in the Financial Sector and have for the last 6 months been working with Merrill Lynch so you can believe it's the truth .
  Norwich City are rumoured to be approaching Sol Campbell about the possibility of a one year contract, as he is a free agent.
  Barnsley FC Fact
I have been down for my Season Ticket today (Saturday) and saw none other than Tore Andre Flo.
  Huddersfield town are in talks with david healy over a big money move!
Wages are a stumbling block, peter clarke and dominic blizzard are also in contract talks.
  Portsmouth ins upson, naughton, walker,garvan,fernandes,borowski,tuncay,saviola, sturridge. . . . . .
  Rlonsldo has finally got his wish and will be joining Real Madrid for £60m plus Robben. the deal will not be announced until Fergus has concluded his discussions with Lyon for Benzema. If this goes smoothly and Benzema signs, then Real get their man. If not, then they must wait for United to pick up one of their other 3 choices, being Martins (Newcastle), Villa (Valencia) or Anelka (Chelsea). Devilish7
  For Newcastle, Joey Barton says he wants to go nowhere – but if Shearer is to stay and manage the club, he wants him out as he saw Barton as one of the players who didn't really care about the club's relegation to the Championship.

Ashley Young may be sold by Aston Villa as he's dismayed that Gareth Barry has moved to Man City – Man City themselves may be a likely destination – maybe Chelsea or Liverpool?

Cardiff's Joe Ledley is being looked at by a line of Premier League clubs, including Everton, Sunderland (although Bruce's arrival may change this), Fulham, Stoke and West Ham United. He would command a fee in the region of £5–7 million, although Cardiff may accept an offer that includes a player exchange. Ross McCormack also may be on his way out, and clubs would need to pay a similar fee to that of Ledley.

Stewart Downing could be close to joining Tottenham for a price of £11 million or above, or the transfer of Darijo Srna may happen instead.

As Adebayor is surely leaving the Gunners, Edin Dzeko looks like the most likely replacement from Wolfsburg at £8–12 million. With the sale of Senderos, they need another defender – this could mean the arrival of Hangeland. Gallas is surely going soon, although the club have yet to make a concrete bid for anyone else.
  Cardiff City News: Cardiff hope to sign Mark Hudson by the end on next week. Kris Commons will join from Derby. Sammy Clingan may sign. And if Mccormack leaves then Jones wants Paul Gallagher

  Never posted previously, and probably won't do again for risk of being identified, Liverpool FC fans, expect first signing within 10 days Currently the medical is all that is holding up the transfer of Davd Silva.
The Chief

I'm a mad LFC fan and i'm sorry but David Silva will sign for Real Madrid his reps were at Real last night disscussing a deal! I'm actually fearing that Liverpool will miss out on the majority of the players Benitez has identified as our money situation is not good at this moment!!
  Arsenal Out
Van Persie–Barca
Adebayor–AC Milan or Chelski
Senderos–Sunderland or AC Milan

Arsenal In
Higuan/Huntellar–Real Madrid
Eden Hazard
loric Cana
Thomas Vermaelan–Ajax
  Actual rumours that I have heard: Alonso will be sold to Madrid and Javi Martinez will be his replacement. Rafa does not have much in the way of funds and will be forced to sell Alonso.

  Everton transfers:
Moyes looking to bring in some qualiy to help Eveton push for 4th spot.

Michael Owen – Newcastle (Free)
Joao Moutinho – Sporting Lisbon (£12,000,000)
David Bentley – Tottenham (£8,000,000)
Glen Johnson – Porstmouth (£7,000,000)
Joe Ledley – Cardiff (£3,000,000)
Neven Subotic – Borussia Dortmund (£2,000,000)

Total of £32,000,000. A lot of money but Kenwright
has promised Moyes more money than the shambles last year and will push hard to secure the funds this year to keep Moyes loyal and qualify for the Champions League next year meaning he won't have too dig deep next year.

Victor Anichebe – Hull City – (Loan)
Segundo Castillo – Loan Expires

Moyes will NOT let Lescott go to Man City, he does not believe in being able to simply buy a cabable replacement and wants to keep things stable at the club.

From a close source, trust me, these are the targets Moyes wants to bring in before pre–season, which go through will depend on money and the other clubs.
  Burnley are looking to sign at least 8 players this summer with the following Coyle's main targets:

Jermaine Beckford (£3m Leeds United)
Geovanni (£5m Hull)

Andrew Surman (£2m Southampton)
Jason Scotland (£1m Swansea)

Up The Clarets!
  Steve Bruce has immediately got on with looking for new signings, trying to make his first two; Darren Bent from Spurs and Nikola Zigic from Valencia

As a local lad from Devon I can bring you the latest football rumours from the southwest. .

A high speculative story surrounds the future of Plymouth Argyle striker Paul Gallagher. Many people have linked him with a return to a small prem club but the truth of the matter is he will be joining rivals bristol city for a fee of around 1.5 mil

Argyle will look to Leeds' hotshot Beckford as a replacement. Yes, it is true many clubs are after him but negotiations are currently taking place and a deal is set to be finalised in july. The figure has not been set but with a takeover happening at the Green Army money is now no issue as chairman Stapleton has recently admitted the club have spent wrong.

Other strong news ––
Ronaldo will join Kaka at Real Madrid FACT!

Liverpool will battle for David Silva with Madrid also but should make the deal.

Liverpool will sign Lavezzi and most probably G. Johnson with Arbeloa, Lucas and Babel heading for the exit door.

Pato will not join Chelski, however Ribery may do depending on his choices.

Zlatan has showed interest and admitted he would like to sign for Barca, who probably don't need him but would love him.


D.CLOUGH. .dclough

  Coventry City will announce the signing of Andrew Driver on Monday. A deal has been agreed between the two clubs and the player will travel down to the ricoh on Monday to discuss personal terms and complete his medical.

  Have just been past Norwich's Colney training ground where Grant Holt has been having a medical. Rumours coming out of there is that there were a few problems but hopefully there will be some more news Monday.
  Nottingham Forest are interested in taking out of contract players Amaury Bischoff from Arsenal, goalkeeper Jason Brown from Blackburn and Collins John from Fulham this summer.
  Ive posted very similar to this before!
Glen Johnson– to the pompey muppet who said why would he go to liverpool!! Try guaranteed champions league footie and a shot at the premiership! Dunno if he'll come, though LFC will only have to offer 10mill to match chavski as we are owed 7m for crouchy!
Owen and Michael Johnson are to injury prone for Rafa, and injuries are what cost us the league this year. I don't think he'll bother with them.
Marek Hamsik– Highly rated and has been watched by most of europes top scouts. Its possible but he may not want to leave yet.
Javi young player from Bilbao and apparently the deal is virtually done!
Tevez– Like the rest of you, i don't know but in L,pool rumours are he will sign before July!
Silva– No bidding war has started and apparently (rumours) he just awaits a medical!
Who knows with the reds though. Daily Star has us in crisis again as our debt is to high to secure cash against players in the transfer market! Just going to have to wait an see!!
  There are several rumours about united that are far off the mark, like Veloso and Huntelaar coming to old trafford. These Rumours stop now. We will be signing Benzema, Cahill, and non other than Cesc Fabregas. All these other names are just a smokescreen. Think about it guys, why would Fabregas join Barca, when they have the worlds greatest midfield. Leaving will be Nani, Gibson, Scholes (coaching roll) and Gary neville. Fergie still thinks Giggsy has another 6–12 months left in him.

You have all been pre warned, Man utd are re–building for the next 3 years. God help all the other premiership also rans.

  Although Parry on his way out of Anfield, Liverpool still slow on transfers and missing out on targets. With Barry at City and Daniel Pranjic off to Bayern Munich, 2 targets already gone, and David Silva looking likely to move to Real Madrid. Further still, financial problems mean its likely Xabi Alonso will be sold, Liverpool want £30m but are likely to get around £25m. Javi Martinez will replace Xabi for £11m, Tuncay will sign for around £6m, and new right and left backs will be brought as Doseena and Arbeloa homesick and have asked for moves.
  ARSENAL news:
here's what i WISH for: Yaya Toure, Richards, Hangeland, Dzerko, Kameni. (this would b perfect, a free good keeper, on form tall strikers, beastly central midfielder and two tall powerful defenders, one of whom is a fan).
outs: Gallas, Fabianski, Adebayor, Randall, Senderos, Silvestre, Bendtner, Gilbert.

Here's what will REALLY happen: Matuidi, Sakho, Dzerko, Hazard, Huntelaar.
outs: Gallas, Adebayor, Randall, Senderos, Gilbert, van Persie(most unfortunately, but if he doesn't sign the new contract, there's noway arsene will let him just walk away for free next summer.)

Ronaldo will not leave Utd, Messi/Henry/Eto'o will not leave Barca, Kaka will not go to Chelsea, rather to Madrid or surprisingly Utd, Ribery will go to Barca not Chelsea, Young will not leave Villa this season, Fabregas will not leave Arsenal, Tevez will go to Man City(unfortunately), Pato will go to Chelsea, Bojan will go out on loan to a premier league club, Gareth Barry will be booed by Villa fans and will enjoy champions league football at home on setanta, Liverpool will not have loads of money to spend so they can forget Aguero/Silva/Villa, Newcastle are screwed, man utd will win league agen, follwed by arsenal, liverpool, chelsea, everton 5th, spurs 6th, man city 7th, villa 8th, Ancelotti to be fired before the end of the season. now lets see how much of this happens.
Nostradamus of football. .

Rumours circulating Glasgow today are that ROY AITKEN will be the new Celtic boss. It is felt he has served his time as a number 2 at Birmingham and Aston Villa with Alex McLeish and David O'Leary, and indeed was in the running for Aston Villa job prior to Martin O'Neils appointment (indeed in 3 pre–season games as interim manager he won them all). At Leeds he earned the respect of many seasoned pros and youth players for his knowledge of the game and his man–management. And don't forget as manager of Aberdeen he won the Scottish Cup in 1995. As a "true" Celtic legend with outsdtanding credentials and european contacts from his Scotland days. The rumour is also that if Aitken gets the job then Peter Grant would be his number 2 and Neil Lennon would remain as a 1st team coach. Not a bad trio eh?
  Stoke news

Thomas Sorensen will leave the Britannia for Bayern Munich once a replacement is found. Joe Hart top of the want list.

Dave Kitson wanted by Birmingham –Stoke keen to sell after his disastrous season

Stoke keen to make a fresh attempt to land Zigic from Valencia but not at their asking price of 10 million.

Gary O'Neil on Stoke's wish list but competition from other clubs

Eidur Gudjonson also been approached by Stoke and two other Prem clubs.

  Fergie is not stupid enough to pay that amount of money for Tevez. He is a forward who managed 5 league goals in a season.

So he runs around alot and some of the idiots at OT join in with the sign him up song. They get on Berbatovs back when he has the most assists in the Premiership. They also got on Sherringhams back when he first signed and carricks. And I can remember them all cheeing Alan Smith because he used to run around like a headless chicken and kiss the badge.

We need quality and not tiers.

  West Ham's Jack Collison has attracted the interest from a number of Italian clubs with Roma being the most prominant. Luciano Spalletti has had him watched for the "Giallorossi" on a number of occasions including the match against Wigan in which he injured his Knee cap. Alessio Cerci could be offered as part of the deal although Gianfranco Zola may move for him anyway as he only has 1 year left at Roma.
Claudio Ranieri was keen on a move for him in the summer, but has since been sacked as Juventus' Boss.
  Exciting news for all Villa fans!!! MON will secure the signing of Eden Hazard within the next 5 days. Hazard is touted as the brightest prospect in Europe and has been likened to the great Zidane.

Expect Vila to pay in the region of £6 million to secure his services in a 5 year deal.

  Met Lee McCulloch outside the well shop. Apparently going for medical at Fir Park and to sign for a fee of around £250,000.

Give it a break people! I'm here to destroy these silly little rumours.

Why are wishful thinking fellow Gooners expecting mass changes?

The only transfers will involve one or two players who will go stright into reserves and youth teams, for example Jamie Edge. Another two signings for the first team, one centre back, one defensive midfielder (listing names is pointless, we can never guess what the great professor is thinking), and then one maybe two leaving, Senderos (£6m) and Silvestre (£1m max!).

Keeping the core of the team together – like last season – is Wenger's priority. However, if anyone else leaves, they will be replaced, but the only additional players likely to leave (and I'm simply going by common sense here) are Eboué through lack of first team football (he's already said that he's unhappy with the lack of first team appearances and is unsure of his future) and POSSIBLY Adebayor, and that's only because nobody trusts the man!

Eboué probably wouldn't be replaced, as Hoyte will step forward as Gibbs has done this year (although hopefully Gibbs willbe reverting back to his midfield position for the Carling Cup games when Traoré comes back next season). Adebayor on the other hand, could make us a nice tasty sum of £25m.

Senderos (£6m), Silvestre (£1m), Adebayor (£25m maybe), Edouré (£7m maybe). . plus the reported £13m that Wenger has to spend. . That's £52m for Wenger to buy a replacement (if needed) for Adebayor, a centre back and a defensive midfielder. . That's more than enough.

We will get the right players. We don't need too many adjustments, we have a strong foundation in place. . SO SHOW SOME FAITH!


  I work at Cameron House and I know for a fact that Tony Adams was not brought there for discussions about the Celtic job. He may be in line for another job in scottish football though. .

In other Celtic news – stop talking about Wim and Henrik coming back, it's not happening FACT!

We will not be spending huge cash and we will offload more than we buy. Expect one big name and a few lesser renowed players to be brought in.
  Can we stop this s about berbatov going back to spurs he simply wouldn't be welcome and arry knows this. jermain defoe is goin nowhere he was on the bench at the end of last season after being out injured for 8 weeks. NOW FOR SOME FACTS . david bentley will sign for aston villa and tom huddleston will sign for everton ( which is a shame ) the only player at the moment that arry is weighing up a bid for is ryan babel i will be back with more as and when im told.
  Newcastle United switching their attention to the little irish magician in Wesley Hoolahan of Norwich City. Shearer sees him as the ideal replacement for the departing damien duff
  Rumour strongly going around glasgow is , dermot desmond is ready to announce major double management team that will most definetly plaease the fans . Could be mark mghee and larsson. or it could be roy keane and lennon. or maybe even tony mowbray and slaven bilic together . Who knows? THIS MANAGEMENT TEAM WILL BE ANNOUNCED BY MONDAY. LETS HOPE DESMOND AND LAWWELL HAVE GOT IT CORRECT THIS TIME, AND LETS HOPE HE LETS THE MANAGER SPEND BIG ! !
  In response to my fellow contributor I appreciate your feedback on Kevin Davies going to LFC, yes you are correct he is in his early 30's but so what, you need to remember he is a captain and received the players player of the year award for his club, he also commits a hell of a lot of fouls and picks up a few bookings so for me he breaks up play and doesn't allow the opposition to cheaply control possession. He's English and has strong connections with Sammy Lee, he delivers between 10 and 12 goals a season which for a team like Bolton in the premiership is excellent which can be improved with LFC. He's strong and for me peaking. Backward thinking has got nothing to do with age, look at when we bought Gary Macallister was that backward thinking?. The fact is its pretty obvious how RAFA thinks, once hes made his mind up that's it theres no going back and if Owen thinks that liverpool are second best to the Galacticos then hes not got the correct attitude for this team, RAFA does not have a backward thinking mentality. Its all or nothing with RAFA (i.e. Paco). Owen made up his mind and that was it, he's gone, RAFA won't dwell on it again. no backward thinking. Davies would be fantastic cover for Gerard, hes a hard worker and gives his all and a leader as well. You talk about his age, well this would act as a spur for him to win medals in a place where he is likely to do so. He wants to show his kids his medals when they get older and hes got one on the way. If he was given the chance Liverpool would get a brilliant 2 seasons out of him, as i say he would lead for the carling cup and be instrumental in the FA cup, he would be part of a rotating premiership and European squad, and if injuries occur that big strong yorkshireman would fit into a strong side so easily with his premiership experience. Im not Owen bashing here, Owen made his own mind up, I agree he shouldnt of been on the benches at Real because he was scoring great goals but that team (and its the first time i agree with SAF on anything here) used him and made a profit out of the lads expense and dreams, but that was his decision which he must of found instantly regrettable as he saw Stevie G lift big ears again. So backward thinking. .I just can't see RAFA doing it, he left the ship when RAFA needed him and since then RAFA has moved on quite nicely. RAFA will mix it up next season with a mixture of youth and experience, and remember Sammy Lee has strong ties with Kevin, RAFA knows he has to have an element of English players in the team, hes as good as any foreigner on the market i know of. So there is my response my friend, I respect yours. Now I've said that watch David Moyes step in and bid for him.

  Xabi Alonso will back against a move to Real madrid because he wants to win the premiership for Liverpool fans.

  In response to the guy from the gorbals citing owen coyle leaping from a taxi and champagne doing the rounds. aye ok. celtic,the gorbals and champagne in the same sentence? stay off the meths pal.real rumour. my mate is friends with artur boruc and tells me that finally he s off ,but surprisingly his destination is everton!shame really cause he s always good for a few points a season. 52 and counting.
  A couple of things that need sorting;
as told to all poo(l) fans and now to all citeh fans aaron lennon is going nowhere he simply does not want to move nor do spurs want to sell. so if the player does not want to go and the club don't want to sell the question is how will you buy him??????
to the guy who said defoe will be off again your very very wrong up until his injury and after defoe worked very well with pava on the pitch if any–one needs to worry then it really should be robbie???? and to the other guy the AUTOGRAPH COLLECTOR RE OWEN?
said he was house hunting down london? truth is mate i know for a fact he already has a house in hertfordshire! one move on the cards ashley young to his boyhood club! spurs, in a part exchange deal
