Mendes and Gutierrez swap deal?

Pedro Mendes is being linked with a move to Real Mallorca, with a possible swap deal involving long time Pompey target Jonas Gutierrez going the other way being mentioned...

Mendes is being quoted as having told IB3 Television: 'Spanish football is interesting for me and Mallorca are a good team', which apparently means 'he wants to move to Spain!' To me this does not exactly say he is going, or maybe I am just seeing it the way I want to see it as i do not want him to leave?

With Gutierrez being a long term target for Harry Redknapp then if there were any truth in this then as much as I would like to keep Mendes you could imagine this is a sacrifice that could, well in fact maybe even would be made...

yep he is a right sided player, so he fits the bill as someone that 'arry is looking for... i have only heard good things about him, and also seen some good bits myself but i too am not convinved i like the idea of swapping pedro - proven in this league and our side - for gutierrez - who isnt - but ;arry and co know best dont they i guess.

Herd this was Mendes talking to spanish media saying it would be a good move for him so can Harry keep him, or will he fancy bringing in Gutierrez.

Gutierrez is quite a highly rated winger, also known as spiderman as he dons a spiderman mask after every goal he scores. I can see this as a possible good move although I would prefer Mendes to stay and we get Gutierrez as well!

"HR" is talking up Mendes which makes me think he is on his way. If this means Gutierrez arriving as a right sided winger, the bad news of the Mendes loss could be countered by the good news of Utaka going.

d'allessandro is probably 'too much' of a luxury player to fit into our side now isnt he? i would love to have him back but cant see this ever happening tbh...

good point 007, i hope it isnt the case but it could we be that mendes is being talked up so he can be shipped out... i dont think utaka will be going anywhere this summer tho tbh.

Harry wont let Utaka go he sees something in him we all miss let's hope he has a big season & prove a lot of people wrong. As for D'allessandro I agree with rug &lets move on not back although I would make an exception with Crouch.

crouchy is a better player to the one we had before isnt he - but he wasnt bad before was he either :-) i would doubt we can say the same about d'allesandro, fantastic footballer but has he improved since he left? i would doubt it...
if it just the 'price tag' that 'arry sees in utaka tho? i cannot stress enough that i hope he comes good next season, but until we see if - and not just for the first few games - i will not believe it.

Mendes will go with our blessing, if it happens. Though at best next season will probably be his last.
