Reports today in the People claim that Sacha Gaydamak is looking to sell up and a mysterious Arab group are looking to buy him out.
With respect to Alan Nixon - the journalist involved - I believe that most of his 'exclusives' rarely come to fruition so I would not be too sure on how much water this will actually hold!
The suggestion is that Gaydamak does want to sell - but like I say plenty of previous exclusives have died out before they have even started, so as with previous suggestions that he is looking to sell up lets not get carried away by this talk - be that a good or bad thing for Pompey, depending on what way you would look at this...
Takeovers are flavour of the month, so on what might have been a quiet day for the People maybe we were flavour of the day for them!
I, and plenty of others, were drooling over the performance of Lassana Diarra yesterday - and Harry Redknapp is another.
Whilst he, and we, know that it is as inevitable as night will follow day that Diarra will eventually move on to a 'bigger club' - and no matter what is said all the talk of a possible future move to Spurs is not the kind of move I mean! - Redknapp is praying he stays for a while to come: 'he's unbelievable, he really is. He's a top, top, top player and yet so easy to deal with, a good little lad who just wants to get on with it.
'Please God, he stays here for a while but, you know, one day he could go on and play for anybody, any of the big clubs in the world.
'He is back in the France team and he played both their games last week. My chief scout went to the Serbia game and said he was fantastic.
'Why they didn't play him (in Euro 2008) was a big surprise to me. I really don't know the answer to that one but now I'm hearing that Thuram is saying that he'll be the next French captain - yes, he's that good.
'I think we signed him for four years and he's tied up on contract here but you know what happens. If they want to go they usually go.'
The fella is happy enough here, we are more than happy with him so the signs are that he will stay for a while though but to be honest I think we will do well to keep him in January, let alone next summer! However the best way we can keep him is by keeping ourselves in or around the top 5 or 6 clubs in this country and should only worry about realistically losing him to 4 clubs over here - and he has already played for 2 of these, so the chances f returning to either of these are unlikely...
Either way, lets not worry about when he will leave, lets just enjoy things while we can with him being here!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
