Firstly Ahmad Khalil, along with his young UAE teammate Hamdan Al Kamali, was signing for Pompey, then this was merely a 3-week trial - now it appears that the striker is not even coming to Pompey at all?
Dr SAF was quoted as saying both would sign in the Arabian media, this saw the 'I am only going on a 3-week trial and I cannot wait' kind of response from Khalil before the denial of any deal at all from Dr SAF...
Now, according to IMScouting, the 18-year-old will be coming to England but will be going to Chelski on trial with Al Ahli's chairman of the board, Khalifa Sulaiman, saying: 'our player (Ahmad Khalil) will be gone for four weeks to Chelsea FC later this summer.'
Chief executive Ahmad Khalifa Hammad added: 'our player will be going to Chelsea and we are proud of that. We wish him luck and we hope there will be any other such opportunities such as this as he progresses in his career.'
'Reports' of a trial at Chelski previously seem to be wide of the mark though?
I know that youtube videos make everyone look 'fantastic' regardless, but this one, which was on the www.imscouting.com site, sees the guy looking pretty impressive.
It takes about a minute before any serious action kicks in and it does that annoying 'slow down and show the same clip several times, slower each time and sometimes from different angles thing' but is worth a watch. Even if it is now appearing as more of a 'lets have a look at what you could have won' type thing...
There are so many things being 'said' at the moment then days later, if not hours sometimes, other things are 'said', but at this point in time 'if' reports are accurate the guy that has been compared to Samuel Eto'o looks as though he is not even coming to Pompey for a trial this summer?
As always I guess time will tell...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
