    As the summer transfer window is coming slower and closer, so I might aswell make a thread to put supposed transfers in here. :yay:

    A thread to post all the transfer rumours, speculation, fantasy, etc....:yes:


    Who will your team sell? what big name players will be coming to your team?

    Also there is a Poll Asking You about Which club do you think will spend the most on transfers this summer?

    All thoughts and rumours here please.

    First up - As we all know Drogba is leaving Chelsea so to replace drogba Porto striker Hulk might come in however 35mil is pretty high in my opinion.


    Enjoy!

    Chelsea. They're releasing players like it's going out of fashion and they'll use their champions of Europe to cover up their 6th place finish.

    I reckon that Baines will definitely go to United. Everton are just their feeder club after all. They need a right back though truth be told.

    Man City or Chelsea will be spending the most money. Mansour is still in the "have all the money you want" phase, and Chelsea will spend their CL money on trying to replace their ageing squad.

    Just wish Hazard would shut up and make his mind up already, this media circus is getting tedious.

    He will be expensive and is 27, doesn't really fit in with glazernomics, and from what I have seen isn't that much better than Evra defensively. I still have faith in Rafael, he's been brilliant going forward, links up with Valencia really well and is still only 21. If we sort out his sometimes suspect positioning and stop his lapses in concentration then im confident he will become a top full back. Vidic returning is only going to help him as well.

    If he is under 24, English and has had a good run of games at any point this season, then he ticks all the boxes for my team to sign him.

    Chelsea will spend money, but only just a bit more than Man City who can and will splash.
    Man U will buy Kagawa and Lewandowski probably. It's about time they actually bought some talent (apart from Young last year) rather than buying for the future. They need to buy for now because otherwise they really could fall behind Citeh.

    Loving the released list too!
    Brad Guzan (GK), Craig Gordon (GK), Manuel Almunia (GK)
    Peter Ramage (RB), Julien Faubert (RB)
    Nicky Shorey (LB), Clint Hill (LB)
    Carlos Cuellar (CB), Fitz Hall (CB), Danny Gabbidon (CB), Zak Whitbread (CB)
    Paul Scharner (CB/DM)
    Owen Hargreaves (DM), Sean Davies (DM)
    Michael Tonge (MC), Papa Bouba Diop (MC)
    Ricardo Gardner (AML), James McFadden (AMRL), Michael Kightly (AMRL)
    Solman Tchoyi (AM)
    Emile Heskey (FC), John Carew (FC), Michael Owen (FC), Didier Drogba (FC)

    ^ That's a sick squad for Football Manager 2013! :drool:

    Feeder club? We haven't sold them anyone since 2004.

    What's wrong with Jones??
    It's perhaps the best position for him. He wouldn't be allowed forward from centre-back, but at right-back at least he can attack whilst also using his defensive capabilities.
    Rafael is a decent back-up imo.

    Are you sure?

    The past two seasons Evra has been very suspect and shaky whilst defending.

    Baines is far superior going forward, and if Utd do buy Baines, hopefully Evra will get his act together and stop fannying around on the pitch!

    The most important news is that Michael Owen and Emile Heskey are both available on a free transfer in the summer.

    What a combination that would be for the promoted teams!

    Liverpool need some strength. Because Lucas is about our strongest player, or maybe Bellamy, enough has been said...

    Yeah, Kalou, Bosingwa and Ferreira too!

    I would actually love to see Owen/Heskey reunited though. Amazing.

    I think Chelsea will outspend every other team in the league.

    I see Man City spending on a similar level to Chelsea in order to retain their title.

    Man Utd will probably be next in terms of spending and will get some class players. However, they'll generally need to meet the quality of the players Chelsea and Man City are signing as they'll be amongst the main title challengers.

    I think Liverpool will spend the most amongst the non-title contenders. Need massive rebuilding imo. They'll need to spend big to attract players that generally wouldn't look at a team in Liverpool's position (league wise).

    A successful summer for Arsenal will be signing RVP on a new contract unfortunately. Anything other than that is a bonus in my eyes. However, for RVP to sign, Arsenal will have to spend this summer.

    Tottenham, can't really see much happening for them. Could potentially lose Modric and Bale. Not to mention that Adebayor could leave as well as Van Der Vaart. However, I expect them to keep the latter three. Modric will probably go to City or Chelsea imo.

    Successful summer for Newcastle is similar to Arsenal's. Keep all the main players and anything else is a bonus.

    I don't see Liverpool spending THAT much, the owners must be real saps to give them a massive budget for the 2nd year running.

    They'l welcome back Acquilani (who I assume will be in their plans, it would be stupid not to include him) and Lucas. I think they just need a winger and a striker personally.

    Chelsea will definately be biggest spenders, they are linked with £40mil for Hulk, £32mil for Lucas, £30mil+ for Hazard... one will definately materialise and they'l add cover at the back too.

    Next will be Man City, they'l probably go in for Thiago Silva and Dani Alves, breaking the bank for the former.

    Man Utd will go for value, Kagawa or Hazard (although both appear to be possible as of this moment, in which case they'd be up there with the spenders too).
