Mirel Radoi To Join Pompey?

Mirel Radoi To Join Pompey?


Pompey to sign Mirel Radoi?

The defensive midfielder was highly rated in the Romanian Division A last season.

Gigi Becali, the owner of Steaua Bucharest, has agreed to a deal. Although he is unwilling to name the club buying the player but reports suggest it`s Portsmouth (however Pompey had an offer for Emana accepted today.)

'Look, I'm not just his godfather now, I'm also his agent', he said, 'we're talking about a Premier League football team here.

'The transfer is 90% complete. I will know 100% on Wednesday. I'm a business man, I asked for 12 million Euros for him, we negotiated and eventually we agreed on 11 million Euros.

The player is believed to have agreed a contract. 'I sorted everything out, contract, salary, the deal is as good as done. I talked to Mirel as well and he said 'Godfather, I'll do as you say'', added Becali.

'I'm reluctantly letting him go but I'm doing it for him, not for the money. I would have given him away for 10 million (euros) but we shook hands on 11,' he added.

Milan Mandaric was apparently in Bucherest on Friday to agree to the deal.

'Roach called me two days ago and asked me to put him in touch with Steaua,' said Illie Dumitrescu.

'A month and a half ago, the English wanted Mirel for 6 million,' the former Romanian international revealed.

'Gigi (Becali) said the offer was very low. If someone close to Steaua said that he refused the offer I wouldn't believe them, but somebody from Liverpool phoned me and told me about Becali's refusal.'

I now read on another Pompey website that this chap was looked at by Liverpool as a possible replacement for Gerrad. If that's the case it could be a good deal for us. Didn't know Gerrard was off anywhere?

Mirel Radoi is the best football player in Romania and I hope he gets to another team from UK. No offence, but Steaua, the team where Radoi is captain won the championship and played the UEFA semi finals, so I think it would be better if he got to a better team than the last in UK. Any way, here in Romania, we don`t know anything for sure, but it appears that he will eventually go to Liverpool

storagematt ... there are rumours that Gerrrrrrrard is in "advanced negotiations" at Real Madrid ... i CANNOT believe this at all though ... look at what happened to Owen ... if he leaves, its only for the $$$$$$$$$. YET, i think he loves football and the pool so I cant see him doing it.

http://www.answers.com/topic/mirel-r-doi <----- There ya go lads and lasses. A little bit about him. I'm not sure that someone coming out of Romania is worth paying 11 mill euros for.

Tollitt still has a Pompey chance

Well, according to Cook. He's insisting Tollitt, the former Everton academy player who had returned to Merseyside to join Tranmere on loan, can still return to Pompey.

Pompey win and lose collectively

As such Cook doesn't want the fans to start turning on individual players, which has been the case with Bennett with Smith not exactly viewed as a 'fans' favourite' either.
