Hi Guys, anything to get away from these "Favourite Things" threads ....
Does anyone know of any interesting rumours as to who's buying who this summer, the only ones i've heard at the moment is:-
1.) Ronaldinho going to Man Utd, along with Ronaldo
2.) Pires, Ljungberg and Bergkamp all out of Arsenal, Cisse and Kleberson in ....
3.) Muzzt Izzet to Middlesbrough
4.) William Gallas to Liverpool
Anyone else have any transfer rumours?

Vieri - Not a chance, i don't think Utd would be prepared to pay the wages he would like ..
Ayala - It's possible, he's a great player but i can't see Valencia giving him up
Nesta - If they can get Nesta i'll eat my pants, he's one of my favourite defenders and im sure he's rather the sun in Milan rather than the rain in Manchester
Roberto Carlos - Probably the most likely, you can't bet against him not joining a team with Beckham in ..
P.S, Matthew ... Di Canio i think will join Portsmouth no doubt, he will be one of the Premierships top goal scorers next season too if he does

Man Utd to sign Patrick Kluivert, Michael Ballack and Philippe Mexes
Arsenal to sign Djibril Cisse
Southampton to Sign Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Emmanuel Olisadebe
Liverpool to sign Steve Finnan, Damien Duff and William Gallas
Newcastle to fight with Liverpool over Damien Duff.
Everyone to sign West Ham's players for peanuts when they go down
Tottenham to announce the audacious near-signings of Ronaldo, Raul, Morientes, Nesta and Beckham, but to ACTUALLY sign Bobby Zamora
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Blink, it's no secret that Real are buying the best of the best at the moment (i.e. Zidane, Figo, Ronaldo), and they have clearly stated that they are interrested in buying Beckham. Naturally this is great material for the british tabloids, so they come up with stories like "Beckham; yes I want to leave old trafford" and simillar. But Becks has also said that he intends to stay with the reds. And I believe he will. Why? Because we have seen this situation over and over in the past. Big clubs offering huge sums for the England midfielder, speculations about Beckham not being happy in United, and what has happened? He stayed with the club, and the media are left saying "so he didn't leave this time, but I'm sure we're on to something." (When they are actually thinking "nothing like a beckham/transfer story to make people buy our papers.")
So, to keep it short: Yes there are speculations that Real will buy Beckham, but I believe he will stay in Manchester, at least for another season.
EGFF, Nistelrooy said his favourite striker to partner up front would have to be Vieri, and I'm sure Fergie is keeping an eye on him. What is this you say about United's economy? If they want Vieri badly enough, I'm sure they can gather the transfer fee needed. As for Nesta, Ferguson came close to signing him a year or two back, and is still very much interrested in adding him to the team. But in my oppinion United should be looking for a striker of Ruud's quality. So Vieri wouldn't be a bad choise. (A shame Real snatched Ronaldo before United got him...)

EGFF, Ronaldo has always stated that he would only play for Arsenal in the EPL. Ljungberg, Bergkamp,Pires won't be going anywhere, Wenger hs stated this... Haven't heard of the Muzzy Izzet rumour. so can't comment and seeing that Chelsea has got qualification for the Champions League and Liverpool hasn't, Gallas will definately not be going there.
EGFF, Robert Carlos has said recently that he wanted to play for 3-4 years with Real Madrid and then finish his career in Brazil.
This is what I heard, I will only foucs on the first two in the EPL....
