Sol Campbell Deal Abandoned

Sol Campbell Deal Abandoned


Pompey are all set to pull out of a deal to bring Sol Campbell to Portsmouth. This comes after talks between the clubs persuaded Harry Redknapp that money was better off spent elsewhere.

Arsenal have informed Portsmouth that they would want a sum in the region of seven hundred and fifty thousand pounds. They also informed Portsmouth of the players wages, thought to be about 70k a week!

Portsmouth will now look at other options although they have not ruled out a move for the player if (on the return from the world cup) he decides he would take a pay cut to join us.

Well if we couldn't match DA £30k+ then this was always going to be a non starter. Just goes to show the sort of revenue the top clubs have to make to pay a whole squad of top notch players. We can't get one.

richy23. Don't take the pi55. We are not a Grimsby or a Rochdale. No doubt you had a laugh at Wigan before last season. We can't all be Barcalona types.

So by 'abondoned' you mean 'still interested'?

He's on 60k a week so i can't see him taking 2/3rds of a wage drop to join us. He'll get the wages he wants elsewhere.

He is a good player and we certainly can't afford 70k a week. He is getting on a bit now for a pro footballer and he must have millions in the bank, he may take the pay cut and choose to retire in a couple of years. Stranger things have happened!
