It is only a little snippet from The Sun today, but they 'claim' that 'in-demand' Pompey defender Glen Johnson is 'flattered' by all the apparent interest in him: 'it's fantastic to be linked with the clubs I have been - but I've not thought about moving.'
Spurs and Liverpool have been long-term admirers of 24-year-old but with the money that 'could' eventually be paid out for him it is thought they will come up short?
Former club Chelski were 'said' to have become the front runners and a return to Stamford Bridge for anything from £10m-£17m has been 'claimed' for the past week or more but now, and as was inevitable at some point, Citeh are 'said' to be the new front runners with them prepared to 'battle' with Chelski for him having table a whooping £18m, now that is more like it!
Further reports from The Express are saying that a clause in his contract allows him to talk to anyone that offers more than £12m? Whispers of a clause have been heard, but this was thought to have been for a fee of £15m or more...
To be honest I still think that Johnson will go and I would not be surprised 'if' they really did come in for him if it was the Citeh vision - I genuinely feel their vision is sold to people, the money helps too of course! - and the £100,000 plus per week, that swayed this... Again, 'if' we can get a bit of a bidding war going too then so be it.
Of course I would love to keep him, but I am not convinced we will - we need him to state categorically that he 'wants to stay' for this, and although he might have said he had fallen in love with football again and appreciated what Pompey had done for him he did not categorically state his desire to stay at Fratton is what he wanted more than anything.
Time will tell, but not over the next 2-weeks apparently as he is now off on a well earned holiday!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
