One gossip site suggests that Manchester City and former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez is looking for an exit as he isn't happy. Liverpool are being linked with an £18million move. No link to Villa but wouldn't that one be nice!?

The Daily Mail claim that Everton have jumped ahead of Fulham in the race to sign Wigan defender Paul Scharner who Villa were linked to a week or so back (see below).

The Sun say that Manchester City are preparing for a £50million clear out. Villa have already been linked with midfielder Stephen Ireland just wondered who else we could be in for?!?! If Ashley Young is sold to Barca or the numerous other clubs linked, maybe Shaun Wright-Phillips would make an obvious replacement? Anyway, the report suggests that Emmanuel Adebayor, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Wayne Bridge and Stephen Ireland will all be available.

going to be an interesting transfer window this summer, think a few top managers and players will be playing musical chairs! I don't know why but I love all the rumours and speculation!

Your transfer window activities look a t bit like ours. We were linked with an entire new team last week alone!!

I think if Man City miss out on 4th, there will be plenty of stars leaving. Players like Tevez, Adebayor and Toure need to be playing Champions League football. I still believe Chelsea was a one off, cannot see Man City winning the league any time soon, finish 4th and they might be able to, miss out and alot of big stars will be off. Already lost Robinho.
28/04/2010 10:26:00
Who could we attrackt IF we finish 4th?
28/04/2010 11:04:00
Fear, any Man Citeh feedback regarding how Gareth Barry has permormed for his 'new' club?
28/04/2010 12:47:00
Doyle and Cole both good strikers, who don't score goals - we already have 2 of these?!?! better to go for Keane, as although arguably too old - he should still get 20 plus goals - which this season would have been enopugh to get 4th. So he would only have to do it one season (xt season) and once in a championsl eague slot - should at this point xt year be able to attract a 'real deal' striker ?? Keane - the short term solution to our problem - goals..............

Stuff these players bring on benzema and adebour would be fussy tevez can't speak english and we have no argentinians and Barry could scramble back to us but he won't be expecting a great crowd as many was upset but I wouldn't be bothered
Avfc94 we do
28/04/2010 16:18:00
because of us selling Barry to them, Man City will sell us 2 players - Ireland, SWP or Petrov....
28/04/2010 23:30:00
isnt there a rule coming in saying something like 30% of your squad have to be from a youth team setup in the UK?
29/04/2010 05:16:00
This one will be very interesting. We all know we lack a creative mid and a proven finisher. Everyone's saying Bent, but i cant see us landing him, because 1) We'd probably have to stump up the best part of £18m, and 2) Other big clubs will want him :/
