'Stunning £7million bid for Fernando Belluschi?'
The Mirror is today 'linking' Pompey with a 'stunning £7million bid' for Fernando Belluschi.
Olympiakos' Argentinean international, although he has not won a cap in over 2-years, is worryingly only half owned by the Greek side with the other 50% tied up in third-party issues, and these third-party ownerships can be messy things and that could well be the case with the attacking midfielder, also more than capable of playing as a wide man.
Great, Pompey being linked with a £7m midfielder, along with 'very strong links' to Marc-Antoine Fortune, could well mean new signings are just around the corner?
The 'minor problem'...Pompey have no owner - well no new one - or a manager!
So, how is this 'possible?'
After asking around it would appear that Pini Zahavi 'could' be a common link...
His name, and so-called representatives of Pompey, are coming up all over Europe and the 'super agent' has ties with prospective Pompey owner Dr SAF and 'looks after' Belluschi, as well as some other links cropping up.
Again, does this mean anything?
Maybe not, but it would seem to 'suggest' that the due diligence process is very nearly done, if not done already, so do we expect to hear - as is meant to be the case anyway - some form of announcement next week about the deal being done and of course a manager being appointed?
This is seeming more possible - most 'rumours' are just that and nothing more, but we are starting to hear more and more and more and more of these are containing personalities that have connections to each other and PFC.
As always though time will tell...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
