I MUST start of by saying, whilst we have to be mindful of the fact that this IS ONLY paper speculation, 'if' there is any truth to it then the thoughts that no one would be sold 'on the cheap' would not really being proven as being the case, would they?
'Reports' in the Italian media are 'claiming' that the price is proving a sticking point for Nadir Belhadj with a 'compromise' of around £2.85m 'probably' going to be agreed in the end with Lazio...
Should the Algerian go for that then this is someway off the £5m, or so, that we were looking for and means quite a hit on the £4m plus that we signed him for - then again needs must I guess?
Just PLEASE for the love of God have got a 'sell-on clause' written into any contract! If others do it to us can we not do it to them, as much as I detest these kinds of deals.
So, whilst the 'rumours' might be that Billy is leaving for a lot less than I would say he should The Mail is 'claiming' that John Utaka is off to Sunderland for 'as much' as £2m...
That would of course be a £5m hit taken on him, what a waste of money eh, but £2m would be more than I though we would get so this would 'even things out' over the transfer of both players all in all, right?
Then again The News 'claims' that Billy and Kevin-Prince Boateng are 'closing in' on a double move to Lazio for the recently reported £8m, add that and the Utaka money together and something like £10m for the lot, whilst still low perhaps in all honesty, would not be too bad...
Again though we MUST remember that this is, on both counts at the moment, nothing more than 'media speculation'.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
