Leeds United to keep Jermaine Beckford after they gained promotion to championship but will cost them 20k week in wages. They will attempt to buy Lee Barnard from Southampton after they failed with there bid in January. Tommy smith could also come to Leeds for £750,000 from Portsmouth(very likely as hey are holding talks at the moment)also discussing Jamie Ashdown from Portsmouth too. Joey gudjohnson (free agent after leaving Burnley is a target)Ian Harte (Carlisle could make a shock return to Leeds also very likely as negotiation are ongoing) Last of all also very likely Barry Robson to Leeds after Middlesbrough opened discussions. Last of all Mark Viduka has been offered to train with Leeds with a view to a permanent contract. These are what have been drawn up by the board but cannot say who I am as I may get told to come to the office. 100% Real.

Liverpool Squad for 2010/2011.

I think Rafa will leave in the summer to make way for another manager with a very good reputation, personally i would like someone with a good record and good managerial experience who can bring happiness and stability to the club, whoever this person is i hope they will make serious changes at Anfield.

Here's what i think the First Team squad will be at the start of the season:

GK: Jose Reina
GK: Dida (Free agent from AC Milan)

RB: Glen Johnson
RB: Micah Richards (£6 mill. from Man. City)

CB: Jamie Carragher
CB: Daniel Agger
CB: Martin Skrtel
CB: Sotirios Kyrgiakos

LB: Maxwell (£5 mill. from Barcelona)
LB: Emiliano Insua

RM: Maxi Rodriguez
RM: Claudio Marchisio (£4 mill. from Juventus)

CM: Steven Gerrard
CM: Alberto Aquilani
CM: Javier Mascherano
CM: Lucas Leiva
CM: Jonjo Shelvey (£1.7 mill. from Charlton)

LM: Ludovic Obraniak (£2.5 mill. from Lille)
LM: Yossi Benayoun

ST: Fernando Torres
ST: Nikola Zigic (£5 mill. from Valencia)
ST: Brandao (£7.5 mill. from Marseille)
ST: Dirk Kuyt
ST: Milan Jovanović (Free from Standard Liege)

Youngsters to break into the squad next season:

GK: Peter Gulacsi
RB: Stephen Darby
CB: Martin Kelly
CM: Steve Irwin
ST: Daniel Pacheco

Obviously changes need to be made, i think the arrival of Dida will mean we have good reliable back up that can be used in the early stages of the Cups or is Reina was to get injured – I think having Cavalieri as back up isn't any good as he keeps thinking he has a chance to break in ahead of Reina, which clearly isn't going to happen with the form Reina's been in.

I think we need to get some cover for Glen Johnson – and in Micah Richards i think we would have that solid cover. Also Richards is as useful at Centre back as well as Right back – so if one of our Centre backs was to get injured this would be useful.

I think buying Maxwell from Barcelona would be a very useful signing, he has made nearly 30 appearences this season for Barca and is a very solid player – who likes to get forward.

With Maxi settling it an Anfield i think its important for someone to put pressure on him – and in Claudio Marchisio i think we would have that; he is a very creative player and if full or ideas, and with Juventus not playing in Europe next season i expect some of there big starts to move on.

With our main strength being in Centre midfield – the arrival of Jonjo Shelvey will be a good one as he a strong player who doesn't give up.

Left midfield is the main position that Liverpool have struggled with in recent years, and i think Ludovic Obraniak is the ideal player needed. Our number one target would be David Silva – but with Rafa likely to go i guess that interest will be forgotten.

Upfront is a position in which Liverpool have struggled in this season; a lot, and with Torres' fitness here and there, i think the new manager should re–inforce at least 2 more strikers – as well as Serbian Milan Jovanović who's arriving on a free agent from Standard Liege in the summer, i think we need a 'Crouch type' striker – and i think we will find that in Nikola Zigic – who has a similir frame but is more useful with his head. Zigic isn't getting regular football at Valencia and would cherish a move to Liverpool. The final part to the squad would come in Brandao; who plays for French Champions Marsielle – he is like Rooney – very aggressive and a handful for defenders.

With all these players coming into the squad, obviously it means players will have to come out of it.

Starting from the back..

GK: Diego Cavalieri (£2 mill. to Juventus)
GK: Charles Itandje (£1 mill. to Kavala FC)
RB: Philip Degen (£1 mill. to Newcastle)
LB: Fabio Aurelio (£2 mill. to Barcelona)
RM: Nabil El Zhar (£500,000 to West Brom)
CM: Jay Spearing (Loan to Leicester)
CM: Damien Plessis (£500,000 agent to PSG)
LM: Albert Riera (Free agent to Spartak Moscow)
ST: Ryan Babel (£7.5 mill to Bayern Munich)
ST: David N'gog (Loan to Portsmouth)
ST: Kristian Nemeth (Free agent to AEK Athens)

I think these players will be on there way of Anfield as there time at Anfield have all been marred by poor performances, injuries and not being given a chance.

Lets hope for a better, stronger season next season!

Paul Rachubka to join Notts County to replace Kasper Schmeichel.


09 May 2010 21:26:44
Following Leeds United's promotion, the current changes will undergo at the club:

Firstly, Beckford IS staying.i recently managed to visit Thorpe Arch for a player sponsors day.(Sponsoring Paddy K, at

During this visit we got to meet all the players and i asked Becks if he was staying and he said "We'll have to wait and see, he was very smiley and chirpy when he said it and i truly believe that because of our promotion he is staying.if we had failed to go up i think he would have gone elsewhere.

Nicky Maynard (to partner Beckford)
Michael Chopra
Nick Montgomery (Leeds fan, 100% done deal)
Tommy Spurr – (Leeds need a good Full Back, and he is a leeds lad)
Sanchez watt – (to be brought in on a season long loan)
2 Centre backs will be bought in, 1 to partnet Kisnorbo and one for back–up.
Kasper Schmeical or Keiran Westwood are targets.
Mcsheffery will also sign for free

Ankergren – Plymouth (100k)
Rui Marquez
Lowry (Back to villa)
Sheehan – Swindon (250k)
Aidy White (loan) – League one team
Doyle – loan expired
Andy Robinson – Swansea (250k)
Dickov – Retiring
Kandol – Charlton (100k)
Tom Elliot – Stockport (free)

Leeds will have a budget of about 3,000,000 + to spend.

Expect us to be challenging for the play–offs next year.

09 May 2010 21:22:02
Spurs manager of the year Harry Redknapp was praised for his contribution to spurs and football as whole. Shame he couldnt pay his taxes and contribute to society..
hence spurs to sign: increased legal representation, a tax collector, an opened top bus to parade through london as a celebration of sealing 4th spot, Sandro(done) and a DVD of Arsenal's Invincible Season.
leaving will be: good sense, tax contributions, dignity and probably Pavlyuchenko, who will thank Spurs in his memoirs for teaching him how to kick a football.


09 May 2010 21:12:27
My next door neighbour is friends of a senior person at Bramall Lane and has told me that Blackwell will be moving into a support role and making way for Gary Speed to take over at the helm.

Evans will be kept as McCabe wants to see him fulfill the potential that the club paid to see, and Henderson will be offloaded to free up wages. Heading into the Lane will be Dele Adebola and Jonathan Greening has been pencilled in for talks, although wages are expected to be the stumbling block.

Any Sunderland rumours? I'm fed up of reading about how Liverpool are going to spend all this money which they obviously haven't got and all the top players that are coming in despite no champions league. It's the same with arsenal, wenger never spends money and will probably only bring in 3–4 players however one of these will be a big signing. Oh and my last word goe to all those newcasle fans out there thinking they are world beaters and are going to sign top quality players in there 1st season back in the big time. The fact is Big mike has promised you a 15m budget which of course won't buy you much when you need to buy at least 7–10 decent prem players to stay up, because all you have at the minute is a championship squad! So Sunderland rumours will be welcomed.

To the man who said that Alan Pardew is going to Crystal Palace. RUBBISH!!

The meeting on Wednesday is about next season. the amount of money Alan Pardew will have for Transfers and who he is looking to bring in to let Markus Liebherr know why he wants to buy them and what he thinks they will bring to the already great Southampton side.

Markus Liebherr wasn't there Saturday because of the Ash cloud still about in the air. He also was feeling unwell.

These are the Players Alan Pardew is looking to bring in:

Inigo Calderon (Brighton)
Hayden Mullins (Portsmouth)
Roy O'Donovan (Sunderland)
Scott Arfield (Falkirk)
Ryan Dickson (Brentford) maybe doubtful after Calderon deal
Simeon Jackson (Gillingham)

Great Saints squad will get better!

BCFC RUMOURS Birmingham will do one of the signing of the seasons next season when they are going to loan out manchester uniteds Berbatov. Now, before you start writing 'to the guy who said this you thick' just think for a moment. We took on Joe Hart now Arsenal want him for 10m, We had Bendtner and now he is a frontman at Arsenal. Manchester United, Alex Ferguson and Berbatov himself know he can score goals because he did it for Tottenham. We made Hart popular and now Man City can add an extra 7m onto his value, When/If Birmingham make Berbatov popular then he has the choice to sell him for extra money OR Ferguson can keep him because his confident has risen. Please tell me whats wrong with this other than the fact Manchester United might not buy another striker (which would be weird as they need another striker who can score goals other than Rooney).

Ribery, Kaka, Dzagoez, Lukaku, Thiago Silva all possibilities

Real Madrid–Ribery, Sneijder(if mourinho comes), Vidic, Vargas, Neymar, Aguero
Barca–Villa, Arshavin Fabregas next summer
These are just likely not facts


09 May 2010 19:34:18
Chelsea were better than 19 other teams, made history and showed their credentials. The big teams made a few big moves in the week including the monster bid made by City for David Luiz and Angel di Maria, the bid was accepted but Angel and David get to determine their own future. Real Madrid are ready to make a raid on United's backline targeting Evra and Vidic. Barcelona are trying to assemble enough money to bid for Diego Perotti or Jesus Navas. Chelsea are trying to buy Marek Hamsik, Alex Pato, 'KUN', Di Maria, Bastian Schweinsteiger, David Luiz, Dani Alves, Igor Akinfeev, Maroaune Fellaini/Jack Rodwell and a few youngsters they will attempt these signings in the next 3 seasons.

09 May 2010 18:42:10
To the guy who questioned me about Wengers interest in Ibrahimovich:

Yes Ibrahimovich cost Barca around £70M but it's clear that he is no longer wanted at the Nou Camp. Just look at the game against Inter, he was taken off with 20 minutes left to play and he doesn't fit into Barca's system. I also said that Wenger was interested; which means he has made an enquiry, I didn't say it was a done deal. If Ibra went to Arsenal then of would be for around £30M. There's no way Fabregas would be going as part of the deal although he may be a Catalan player next season.

I really can't see Joe Cole moving to Spurs and I am pretty sure that he will resign for Chelsea. What Spurs are going to need is another central defender. Dawson has had another great year but reliance on Ledley King cannot go on for much longer. With Bale moving to midfield I would assume that at least on of the Kyle's will be available to provide cover.

If they could get either Craig Bellamy or Nicolas Anelka I think Harry Redknapp will have done very well. Sharkey.


09 May 2010 17:26:52
Arsenal's ONLY major summer signings will be:

#1)Chamakh (free), done deal
#2)and ONE central defender
Could be one of many – Arsene doesn't know who yet, so don't pretend you do.

They will sign a few other players, but they will all either be 16 and 17 year olds, or they will be veterans for cover (like Silvestre or Campbell were) on 1 year contracts.

They will not sign a GK at all, and still go with Almunia–Mannone–Fabianski. Szezczny is the future, and they don't want to tamper with this.

Birmingham City FC

Unsettled Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster is set to join Birmingham City for a fee around 6 Million as Joe Hart will be heading back to Man City due to Shay Givens shoulder injury.

Birmingham Citys on loan Ecuadorian striker Christian Benitez will be going back to his club Santos Laguna as he failed to impress on his long loan scoring only 3 goals for Birmingham City.

Birmingham City will again attempt to sign Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones in the summer for a fee of around 10 Million to partner Cameron Jerome as Sunderland are willing to let the striker go for the right price.

Any more news will be posted.

That has been the case for months! Your source knows what everyone in Liverpool has known for months, well done you

also Broughton said " gerrard and torres don't HAVE to be sold" not that they won't be! Why are you sad? 35m for a guy who is old n past his best days! If Madrid are dumb enough to pay that let them! It's not a sad day, gerrard has been a loyal servant for many years n he deserves to try his hand abroad! We OWE him that! And 35m for us! Brilliant! Good luck Stevie and thanks for all you have given to us! ( sad day.. Idiot)

torres going no–were big summer ahead for Liverpool Vdv to arrive and a surprise Italian striker.
(please post this as I'm sick of muppets like this bleating on. Time to wake up and face facts, thanks admin)

Steven Gerrard will leave the club for £35 mill, his destination Real Madrid, so much for Mr Broughton saying Stevie & Torres won't be sold! I also read in to this that Rafa is staying, which means we will win nothing again! Watch this space, my source is undeniable and the above transfer will happen.

Tottenham Hotspurs news!
Harry said earlier this week that he will onl sign 1 fantastic player that will bring something to the squad that they do not currently have and that will be a CM or LM depending on where he plays Luka Modric. The most probable is Joe Cole on a free transfer which looks almost certain, but harry has been given a £40 million budget, £20 million of it he hopes will be spent on Wesley Sneijder, but that is highly unlikely. Harry has been told by Gareth Bale that his Welsh team mate Joe Ledley is out of contract and will be looking for a top 10 premier league club if Cardiff don't go up, but even if Cardiff do go up he will accept a contract by Spurs any day of the week. Harry also wants Craig Bellamy for around £7 million. Nicolas Anelka is on Harry's wish list with him only having 1 year left on his contract could mean his price would be as low as £7 million which Tottenham would happily oblige.

Liverpool News:
Despite the fact no–one knows what is going on at the club and who will be in charge come the new season, LFC will be very active over the next few weeks in the transfer market, agreeing fee's etc for a number of players – But do not get too excited – There will be no 'big name signings' – All will be similar to Wilson & Shelvey – Young and British – Whoever takes over will have to adhere to any rule in relation to the number of 'home grown' players they can field and Liverpool are using the next few weeks to try to tie up as many 'future stars' as they can. Expect another 3 or 4 youngsters to join, with a total spend in the region of £12m (which is being funded by the sale of Keane etc last season, so no inpact on any potential siginings in the summer).

Makes good business sense


09 May 2010 15:04:53
LFC Official News –
Not telling my source but watch this space – This will happen.

The sale of the club was agreed even before Broughton was appointed, but he has been brought in as a well known and respected (in the business world) tough negotiator to iron out the details – The sale will be in the region of £400m, which will clear the debts and allow the yanks to walk away with an underserved profit – Thereafter, it would be down to the buyers to decide what they do next, but trust me, this individual is not in it for the love of the game and will demand a return on his investment – How does he do this? Make the club a world beater again. A new stadium will be build which will be the envy of world football for years to come – Not massive, only 70,000 capacity, but it will incorporate a massive under–stadium car park, and facilities to ensure the 'new Anfield' will be the best (and yes – no new stupid name, Anfield will remain). Money will be in plentiful supply to buy quality proven players.

The future is bright – And the buyers name.Cant say


09 May 2010 14:19:05

To the idiot who claims van persie will go for £55m are you being serious as much as i like him and would have him for liverpool.even city would not meet them demands !! reasons being 1).he is injury prone 2).he is not on top of his game and is edging out the peak of his career.

Onto liverpool rumours: even though we are being took over by big money buyers–by the way it is a dubai consurtium, we won't be signing villa's and messi's.I would love to start throwing out names such as silva, villa, iniesta ect.However signings like this will happen next year as we have no CL next season plus silva is set to join barca along with villa.I'm good friends with a scout at liverpool(hughie mccauley)and he said:
we should be looking at deals like this:

Dida free
a.mathews £3m+darby
kolorav £11m+plessis
D.wilson+fleck £5m sent back on loan with chance to recall them in january
Mata £12m+riera(pref done b4 world cup)
A bid of £20m will be made for milner if this fails then then benayoun will stay, until next year when a bid for a world class player will be made.
Jovanovic free (lw, st)
G.higuain (as he is willing to sacrifice CL for a season)
Wicham plus loaned back for the year.
Rafa, mash, stevie g an fernando will all stay as in a meeting which my friend was involved in–as was all the backroom staff.the club are 1).Looking to get back on track this year–3rd–4th minimum and then the following years seriously contend for the title 2).Capture britians young talent + exceptional foreign ones–only if the next big thing.
Good years ahead for lfc !
ynwa, Scouserj


09 May 2010 14:44:40
Manu will defo sign silva for bout 25m.
If berba 20m goes then benzema wil come in 20m
then one of gourcuff milner modric to come in
akinfeev free in jan

silva 25m ( he wants to com to us and we want him)
gourcuff 20m ( tooooo good to miss and cheper than milner qnd mdric
benzema 20m (if berba goes)

carick 15m
berba 20m (maybe)
tosic 5m
foster 6m

45m spent 30 mill gained so 15 m isn't bad and our team would easily win the title and imporvee alott. I HOPE SAF DOES THIS


09 May 2010 14:45:08
Man Utd and Real Madrid are very close to coming to an agreement over striker Karim Benzema according to reports out of Spain. Sir Alex Ferguson has long been an admirer of Benzema and wanted to bring the Frenchman to Old Trafford last season but was thwarted in his attempts after Real Madrid snatched the 22 year old from under their noses.

09 May 2010 14:15:25
First of all I'll put my name unlike all these ppl who write utter b! I am a liverpool supporter and i just have to laugh at the rumours on here


United are in debt, and will not be bought out by red knights in the near future!
The transfer rumours about modric is a possibility but not a certainty, there wil be no huge signings amounting up to 100 millions of pounds as utd don't have the funds but will be given there usual summer pot of around 30 million. I no of no more rumours on utd


As said on here before Liverpool are in talks with 2 possible owners but the dealings Are being kept under wraps at the request of the possible new owners, so al the rumours on here are rubbish!

Transfers for Liverpool, rafa has issued to the chairman a list of players he would like to buy and a list of players he weould sell, this has been discussed and accepted and rafa has been told he will get some funds but not as much as he wants but all this depends on the new owner situation!

Rafas main targets are a left winger which they will battle
tottenham for is Juan mata which wil cost about 15–18 million
if they fail he will try to tempt arda turan for 12 million

javi martinez crops up once again but this is dependant on new owners

drenthe is supposedly in talks but not sure

And the big one Gerrard to real..gerrard to stay for another year and future will be decided at the end of next season as with torres, who will not be going to utd Chelsea or city!

Out will be riera, kuyt, benayoun!

That's all for now any comments welcome..


09 May 2010 13:35:44

09 May 2010 13:13:51
Cant everyone do a real rumours, I don't get it, give out rubbish rumours but Wenger has given hints on his Summer targets. He already said that he is opting for more English players, Superstars and the DF position. He wants to secure a signing before world cup and that is Chamakh. Here are what is on Wenger's list:
He confirmed that Almunia won't be No1 next season, therefore here are the GK he wants:
Robert Green (5m–7m)
Joe Hart (7m–10m)
Sebastian Frey (8m–10m)
Diego Lopez (9m–11m)
Hugo Lloris (10m–20m)
Rene Adler (9m–14m)
Manuel Neuer (10m–15m)
NOTE: Fabianski won't leave, Almunia sold or demoted to No2

Defence is Wenger's biggest focus, as they were rubbish this season, despite the excellent signing of Vermaelan, here is on Wenger's radar:
Gary Cahill (10–16m)
Cristian Zapata (12–15m)
Van Der Wiel (7–10m)
Neven Subotic (10–20m)
Brede Hangeland (10–15m)
Mahmadou Sakho (6–11m)
NOTE: If Gallas leave, more defenders to come, Silvestre and Senderos to leave

Attack is where Wenger will concentrate on superstars, instead of youngsters. I believe these are on his shortlist:
Michael Ballack (Free)
Joe Cole (Free)
Shaun Wright Phillips (5m)
Felipe Melo (7–10m)
Ivan Rakitic (6–10m)
Rodrigo Taddei (Free)
NOTE: None will leave, Nordtveit will be promoted cover for song, Wenger will reject bids for R.V.P, Fabregas and Arshavin

My best prediction is:
GK – Frey/Green
DF – Subotic, Hangeland
MF – Shaun Wright Phillips, Ballack
FW – Chamakh
Superstars count – 5
English – 1/2
Defence – 2
Wenger's idea of active transfer – 4–6 players


09 May 2010 13:15:32

Unsigned told us at 09 May 2010 13:01:51:

"GOOD NEWS LIVERPOOL FANS! A Dubai based Investment Company is in talks to buy Liverpool Football Club for £450MILLION, talks are at an advanced stage .."

So far this is pretty encouraging – so I guess there will be something to substantiate it now ..

"It has been made clear that the debt will be cleared and the stadium plans kick started, .."

Made clear to whom?

"Rafa Benitez will remain manager as this is a condition of the sale, .."

Sadly no busines would accept such a condition of sale – it is not in their interest.

"It is thought the Investment company has also recently acquired a top UK department store for £1.5bn."

But you said they are a Dubai based investment company – so it cannot be Harrods you are thinking of (having just been purchased by Qatar Holdings). So which UK department store has been sold?

Andrew Driver Hearts to Chelsea on a loan purchase agreement set up by the owners 12 months ago.


09 May 2010 13:29:11
The West ham merry go round will shortly be going into overdrive. The owners have already agreed a deal for a new manager and are just hoping to cut a deal with Zola to go quietly and at a cut price. They have no intention of waiting to buy players as they feel prices will rise just before the season restarts.

Players out:

Rob Green Tottenham or Bayern
Matty Upson Villa or Liverpool
Illunga back to France
Behrami Juventus or Palermo
Carlton Cole Villa or Everton
Mido back to Boro

Dyer, Macarthy, Kovac, Spector and Franco will also be leaving but no deals are currently on the table, Dyer may simply be paid off to leave.

Players In:

Ben Foster (Initial loan deal)
Sol Campbell
David Bentley (Part of Green deal)
Dorrans (If a fee can be agreed or px deal with Spector)

The search is also on for two strikers but no deals on the table yet

A Dubai based Investment Company is in talks to buy Liverpool Football Club for £450MILLION, talks are at an advanced stage and It has been made clear that the debt will be cleared and the stadium plans kick started, Rafa Benitez will remain manager as this is a condition of the sale, he will be given significant funds to add to the playing squad in the summer and the takeover would be completed by the end of June. It is thought the Investment company has also recently acquired a top UK department store for £1.5bn.

To the moron who wrotw this:

Rafael Benitez will leave Liverpool after the game at Hull. Liverpool want either Martin O'Neill or Roy Hodgson to take over. The owners are unhappy with Benitez's constant complaints over transfer funds and their ownership, added to his record in the market and loss of the dressing room. Hicks and Gillett are prepared to provide funds (not their own money obviously!)

What are you talking about? The owners are trying to sell up. They don't care about Benitez or the the manager situation. They just want as much money as they can possibly get. Do you not know anything? What a ridiculous statement..

Anyway to an actual rumours. Sidwell to Fulham. Bellamy to Spurs


09 May 2010 12:47:31
Spurs next term.

Crouch – Defoe
Bellamy – Pavlyuchenko – Gio

Bale – Modric – Huddlestone – Lennon

Keane, Jenas, O'Hara, Hutton & Cudicini


09 May 2010 12:38:51

bellamy will cost around 6 mill and if they sign him and suarez they will look to get rid of one of their strikers – preferably abroad. keane to celtic looks a good move although im sure keane would rather stay in england. there has also been mention of a couple of foreign teams after him as well.

Craig Levein to leave his job as Scotland national boss to return to domestic football with Celtic after only one game..
There is also a possibility of him reuniting with assistant boss Peter Houston. Houston is CLs part time assistant at Scotland and caretaker at Dundee United after Levein's departure at christmas.

Celtic will have to fork out to get both bosses: Levein has a long term contract with Scotland and Houston is contracted as United assistant boss until 2012. United look set to offer him the full time managers contract but Craig Levein, having spoken to him personally, think he can tempt Houston to Celtic with the possibility of becoming 'legends' at the club and being there for a long time.

Houston also stands to gain more money as Celtic's assistant than United's full time boss.

Talks not to start until at least Monday the 17th as United have a cup final weekend.


09 May 2010 12:17:59

bellamy will cost around 6 mill and if they sign him and suarez they will look to get rid of one of their strikers – preferably abroad. keane to celtic looks a good move although im sure keane would rather stay in england. there has also been mention of a couple of foreign teams after him as well.


09 May 2010 11:46:19
Any safc rumours .. all i know is kuryani, that egyptian and ireland close to signin ??


09 May 2010 11:46:32
Expect Roy Keane to have a very busy time this summer hopping to ship out ten to twelve players by either selling or loaning .Then going to bring in 4 to 6 players he feel will make a difference players linked Sunderland players as per norm Fulop, Bardsley, McCartney, Colback and Murphy also Chopra and Whittingham Cardiff if they fail in there play off attempt.Other players linked Gomez and Scotland Wigan , Eubanks Blake Wolves, Harewood Villa Hulse Derby Plus watching two Swedish players , And to top it off Roy has to the end of october to be heading in the right direction or its BYE BYE only one or two of these strikers will be bought from this list


09 May 2010 11:39:45
To the person who said "modric to man utd a non starter" I have mentioned this a few times since jan, Man utd reps & modric reps met in a restaurant in january, Modric was also there at the meeting! (I know this happened) Very strong chance of happening soon regardless of CL for spurs.


09 May 2010 11:23:06
Arsenal to discard Silvestre (probably to Bordeaux on a free) and Senderos (To anyone who will take him on a free). Gallas's future is still uncertain, therefore at least 2 Center–halves will come into the squad.

Mamadou Sakho is just too good a player to miss out on, strong, powerful and has shown strong leadership qualities in his time at PSG. His club's strong interest in Traore and Fabianski could prove a deal–breaker if Wenger can beat off Bayern Munich he could secure a potential superstar for around 8–10 million.

With Sakho replacing the left–footed Silvestre, Arsenal will need another right–footer, here are all the names linked with Arsenal

Pape Diakhate (Rated at 8 million)
Gary Cahill (15–20 million)
Gregory Van Der Wiel (8–10 million)
Cristian Zapata (12–15 million)
Neven Subotic (18–25 million)
Jerome Boateng (11–12 million)
Serdar Tasci (10 million)
Brede Hangeland (15 million)

If only one CB signing is made, and Gallas resigns, Nordveit will come back from loan along with Djournou's make–or break season with Arsenal. Merida could still yet stay if Wenger and Fabregas can convince him suffciently but the promise of 1st team at Atletico may prove too strong. Gilbert will be offloaded as well, with the strong possiblity of one of Fabianski or Almunia being shipped out. Replacing them will be one of:

Adler (12–15 million)
Lloris (20 million)
Neuer (10–15 million)
Frey (8–10 million)
Green (5–8 million)
Hart (10 million)
Weidenfeller (8 million)
Lopez (10 million)

Nzonzi or Melo could come in to back–up Song but it is more likely that Wenger entrusts his faith in Eastmond, JET and Coquelin.

Finally, Chamakh will sign on a 4 year deal worth 50000 a–week with the possiblity of Hazard coming in next summer after Lille's CL campaign in 2010/11 to replace Arshavin.


09 May 2010 11:16:51
Nicky maynard will not be signing for leeds as he's looking for a new house in bristol, with me yeasterday veiwing two houses, knight frank


09 May 2010 11:03:04
The winger has run out his contract and has been told he has no future at Man City. Petrov has stated how he would relish a move to West Ham as he can revive his career. A quality winger in my opinion!



09 May 2010 10:58:54
Not so much a rumour but more a case of deduction.

With the sudden interest in young domestic players (particularly scottish), I believe that agreement will be reached for Rafa to leave the club and be replaced by Dalglish.

It seems strange that we're not making any noises about signing spanish/continental players and that Rafa hasn't yet been given any sort of budget, yet we're still forking out for Shelvey/Wilson/Fleck?

Hopefully, we'll have a go at signing McGeady too. We can only hope..

I'm the security gaurd at Ashton Gate and have seen Gylfi Sigurdsson, (Reading), leaving with his agent.
This is the second top player i've seen in two days, after Gary Hooper and family arrived in Bristol on thursday.


09 May 2010 09:42:07
Dont believe anyone who gives a list of "100% happening " lfc buys. no one knows 100%, especially with manager and buyers futures to be sorted and know one other than directors knows about that either, i had heard however adriano was going to be joining in the summer on loan with a view to a perminant deal , but i heard this in march, before the current situation with rafa and buyers so its by no mean 100%.


09 May 2010 10:04:17

Bristol city news, after seeing charlie adams play yesterday for blackpool steve coppell will be putting an offer to blackpool for around 1 million pound for him,


09 May 2010 09:26:04
Liverpool do not have to sell Fernando Torres. However, if Man City offer worth around 100mil (likely) they will give Torres the option to leave. They will demand around 70mil + Carlos Tevez. They will then rebuild by signing Karim Benzema for 25mil, Juan Mata for 18mil, Aleksandar Kolarov for 15mil, Cesar Azpilicueta (9mil) Gary Cahill 15mil and Stevan Jovetic (18mil)

With other sales, it would mean the club would make a profit.

City could also offer 50mil for Kaka and 40mil for Essien


09 May 2010 09:35:28
???Any walsall rumours???


09 May 2010 05:06:01
Arsenal likely to see the following arrive during the early summer transfer window:

Marouane Chamakh
Ivan Rakitić
Steven Mouyokolo
Diego Lopez

Also, expect Havard Nordtveit to figure big in AW's plans next year as cover for Song and the CBs.


09 May 2010 05:22:30
To the complete ct who said this:
08 May 2010 09:28:18

United is not for sale! So to the Red Knights please stop saying that you have the funds and backing to buy United from the Glazer's. I am a fan of United and have good sources from Tampa, Florida.

Glazer's plans for United to be the best club in Europe and the best club in europe makes good money. And United is in top form won trophies with the Glazer's winning CL and 3 league titles. So stop saying rumours that a group from Hongkong, India, South Korea, China and Dubai will buy United from the Glazer's family. The fact is United has debt but we have the cash to strenghten the team and we have a good business plan.

Now news about signings this summer, SAF plans to sign 4 players and sell 2 players. SAF wants to sign them before the World Cup and sell the 2 players after the W.Cup.

See guys in US tour!





09 May 2010 06:44:37
Liverpool's major signings will be:

Eljero Elia (12mil)
Arda Turan (12mil) or Juan Mata (17mil) if he has a few more funds
Aleksandar Kolarov (12mil + Plessis)

as well as:

A versatile defender but mainly RB (Possibly or Torosidis, Onouha)
A very cheap Goalkeeper on low wages (this rules out Dida)
Milan Jovanovic (free) 3 year contract
Marko Pantelic (free) 1 year contract or Roque Santa Cruz on a 1 year loan with an option to buy
Danny Wilson (2mil)
Pablo Sarabia (220k compensation)

This is as well as the 1.7mil and 300k deals for Shelvey and Sterling. There will also be a few youth players coming in around that 500k mark.

Leaving will be Albert Riera, Ryan Babel, Diego Cavalieri, Philipp Degen, Mikel San Jose, Nabil El Zhar, Fabio Aurelio, Charles Itjande raising around 25mil.


09 May 2010 07:06:36
All man utd fans know that SAF has never brought in 3 or 4 big name signings at one go and this will hold true the coming season as well. we need is a goal scorer (like ruud van) and a inspiring mid fielder (iniesta). So you can expect 2 more signings or maybe one cristiano!!

probably we will sign david silva (mf) and dzeko

green n gold


09 May 2010 01:52:58
Manchester United will bring several young player
Dodo, Neymer, Cosis, D.Costa, Rodwell, Matthew, Vermiji,

I have some news regarding Liverpool, Manchester United, Man City and Newcastle.

Firstly I happen to know that Sir Alex has 3 key targets he wants to bring to Old Trafford in the summer. Those three players are David Silva, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric. It's unlikely that Benzema will leave Madrid this summer but Silva and Modric will definitley be Man Utd players next season.

Benitez will stay at Anfield and a new owner should be at the club between June and July, Rafa will sell certian players as soon as the transfer window opens. This is because he wants to make an early move for Valenicas Juan Mata, Rafa will try and sign the big players early on so he is not involved in a bidding war. Riera will most likely go to Villareal but don't be surprised if he goes to Valencia as part of the Mata deal. Young Rangers defender Danny Wilson is also close to signing for the reds, expect him to be a Liverpool player within the next few weeks.

Man City will once again be spending big, I'm 90% certian Ashley Young will be a City player next season. Also expect City to be bidding for Aguero, Vucinic and Xavi.

And finally Newcastle will sign Leeds striker Jermain Beckford, However Kevin Nolan may be an Everton player come the summer.


09 May 2010 00:49:15
Strong rumour coming from inside Easter Road – Kenny Miller of Rangers will rejoin Hibs this summer.


09 May 2010 00:50:02
Pne team 4 next season


Jones S.t Ledger (captain) De Laet Mcdaid

Zheng zhi Coutts Stock Obertan

Nugent Hayes

bench:Cromie, Blake, welbeck, James, Davidson, Treacy, Mawene


09 May 2010 00:42:41
Adam Lallana will move to Cardiff for £1,000,000 with Mark Kennedy going the other way.

David Nugent is also on the move: He will move to Rangers on a free from Portsmouth, but Rangers will loan Steven Naismith to Pompey for next season.


09 May 2010 00:44:36
I can confirm that fabregas will not be leaving barca. he was asked today (yesterday in spain time) by a spanish sports channel when he will be signing his contract at barca due to the rumors that popped around 2 days ago. he said what contract ? i am at arsenal till 2014 however i plan to extend that contract. i owe arsenal for making me who i am today not barca (supposedly because barca sold him to arsenal for cheap and told him he was not good enough for them).
HOWEVER van persie and arshavin one of them could leave for barca.
arshavin fits the bill for the left wing/ left forward and would be cheap. arshavin has never hidden the fact that he is not loyal to arsenal and would love to join barca.
van persie altough loyal, does not like the physical league that is the english premier league and he gets injured all the time because of that. he would cost barca around 45million atleast (probably 55mil after the world cup or more). wenger has admitted that injurys are a big concern at arsenal and he is looking to offload some of the injury prone players such as djorou, rosicky and gallas.
in other news liverpool signed a new centreback forgot his name for cheap.
bayern munich are looking at anelka and bebatov and will use the money from the sale of franck ribery to buy them. anelka would cost around 20mill berbatov would cost around 14–16mil. a new left midfeilder may also be signed guti of real madrid is a target but nothing more.

08 May 2010 18:26:55
Kerhzakov to Arsenal – dead cert!

Ok mate..source?

A good player, no doubt, but why Kerhzakov when we have Chamakh in the bag?

We have enough strikers – then again I suppose Walcott could move to the wing more which would free up a strikers slot. If we could get him relatively cheap (in terms of Wenger's spending) then possibly a good buy but I won't lose sleep if he doesn't move here.

Have also heard that we are after Agbonlahor, but that's more rumour than solid fact.


09 May 2010 00:30:04
The two davids will not want to sack zola as this means that they will have to pay out alot of money not just to zola but to the rest of his team aswell.

Joe Cole – rumoured as the two davids will be willing to get him as he will not cost them a penny, however they will be willing to meet his high wage demands.
Boateng – cheap buy for the hammers which suits the two davids very well

Green – Roumered to go to Arsenal for a fee of around £10million. WOuld be a shame to let him go but hopefully that £10million would go into transfer fees.
Upson – Mac City and Spurs are interested in Upson. He will be let go for around £8million as he has lost his form.

It is also rumoured that a dubai investor is looking to buy the other 50% of West Ham, this will massivley help the club as the debt can be reduced further and a descent transfer kitty can be made.
I think it is highly unlikely West Ham will get the Olympic Stadium as they face bids from other parties who are willing to put alot more money into the development of the site to a multiple–sport arena.



09 May 2010 00:32:11
Looks like Rio has the next few weeks to prove his fitness to Fabio before naming his final squad. Terry, Carragher & King are already certs.
Also Zamora will get the chance to prove himself in the perlimenary 30 man squad.


09 May 2010 00:16:41
Barcelona to sign Jovetic & Fabregas.


08 May 2010 23:26:58

OUTS:Berba, Foster, Carrick(Maybe Swap), Nani(maybe but not to sure), Possebon And afew out on loan like de laet, welbeck, diouf and obertan and maybe afew more

Im not sayin these are all true but some of them will happen
