The Sun is 'reporting' that one of Carlo Ancelotti's first acts of his appointment as Chelski manager will be to try and lure Glen Johnson back to Stamford Bridge this summer...
His performances have been immense this season and to say he 'almost singled headedly kept us up' is not bending the truth that much, well most certainly his showings in the second half of the season without a doubt, so it is little wonder there is interest in him.
Johnson has of course come on leaps and bounds since he signed for Pompey, the potential that was always believed to have been there has been realised and I still feel there is plenty more to come, but would he really want to go back to Chelski given his past history?
Granted, they can offer him year-on-year champions league football and the probable ability to seriously challenge for at least one honour per season but other than 'proving a point', and of course those other perks, why would he want to return to them?
Time will tell, but one thing that I know for sure is, even if we choose to sell - and the apparent need to do so is seemingly gone - why would we sell him for a measly £12m? A potentially world-class right back, and again it is not bending the truth to make such a claim, is worth more than £12m!
Johno you know where your bread is buttered mate, you know it makes sense to stay at Fratton.
You have chased the 'big 4' dream before, and whilst you are clearly a better player now, why disrupt what you have in place with Pompey - you have a 4-year contract with us, who knows where we 'might' be come the end of that? Loyalty is a thing of the past, but are you not at least tempted to see what the future might bring you here for a few years longer at least...
My, how we could do with a 'I am staying with Pompey' right about now eh!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
