Berbatov to Manchester United - a done deal at last!
Wayne Rooney's goals will come if he gets some forward help
Pity no one asked him about his decision, two summers ago, to sell Ruud van Nistelrooy to Real Madrid. Was that a mistake too?
Ferguson may never say it was but he appears to regret letting the prolific Dutchman go. Why else would he be pursuing Dimitar Berbatov with such vigour? Upon signing him - and United are confident they can do so this week for about £25m - the Bulgarian will be expected to provide everything Van Nistelrooy once did - an outlet for the side's dynamic and willing runners, a target for those able to play a raking pass from deep, and of course goals. Despite his current lack of "focus", a record of 46 goals in two seasons proves the 27-year-old Bulgarian is more than capable of supplying those.
David Beckham will do well to hold onto his England place
Cristiano Ronaldo: 150,000 on CR7 number plate
The new number plate takes his spending with luxury car firm Liquid 45 to a whopping £490,000 in the past month. A couple of weeks ago he placed an order for a black Rolls Royce Phantom - which costs a jaw-dropping £340,000.
But the number plate won't go on the new car - it is destined for Ronaldo's runaround, a silver £140,000 Bentley convertible!
Cristiano Ronaldo is certainly one for splashing his cash about. It's an obscene amount of money, but if you've got it flaunt it and Ronaldo certainly has!

Transfer Rumours: Latest Premiership Transfer Rumours
Newcastle United who have been not subject to much in the way of transfer rumours, have manager Kevin Keegan stresseng that James Milner will not be sold, after it was speculated that Aston Villa could get the talented winger as the Magpies look to balance the books. However, the 22-year-old England U-21 international is apparently a key player in Keegan’s plans and the Toon boss also revealed that club owner Mike Ashley has no plans to cash in on Milner in the transfer market.
There you have it, the latest tittle tattle from the world of the Premier League transfer rumours. As they say in the movies it's a wrap!

Football Rumours: Robinho not going to Chelsea
Madrid daily AS claims Robinho feels undervalued at the Bernabeu, where his contract does not compare with top earners like Raul, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Fabio Cannavaro.
Robinho would certainly earn more at Stamford Bridge, where he could expect wages of up to £100,000 a week. But the AS report also claims the Brazilian’s overwhelming preference is to remain at Madrid - with an improved contract.
The paper says Robinho has no enthusiasm for English football and has admitted his dislike for the British climate. And, if true, that would seem to fuel suspicions Robinho is simply using Chelsea’s interest to engineer a bigger contract from Madrid.
Well it's certainly the time of year for football rumours, though this one does seem to have a grain of truth about it, and Chelsea seem set to be foiled in their attempt to get their man. Seems Chelsea and Peter Kenyon have abandoned the break even in three years plan!

Football Transfers: The Toffee's sticky time in the transfer market continues
Fulham Manager Roy Hodgson has confirmed talks remain ongoing, but he has not spoken with Fulham officials to ascertain the latest situation.
"I think the situation is still ongoing. The transfer negotiations are still going on as far as I know," Hodgson told Sky Sports News. I haven't spoken to the chief executive today (Saturday) so I can't tell you more than that. He's the one negotiating with Everton."
Johnson has won eight caps for England and Hodgson believes the striker will bring undoubted quality to Craven Cottage. "Andy Johnson is a player with great quality. Wherever he's been he's done very, very well," Hodgson added.
Well at least some Football transfers are coming to fruition. Andy Johnson is a good player, and we are slightly surprised Everton are cashing in on him now. Everton have been totally inactive in the transfer market to date, and two weeks out their small squad is about to get smaller still. Seems they have cash to spend but can't attract the players they want. Could be all the rumours of Moutino becoming one of their biggest football transfers turn to dust!
