The Vargas deal is now in doubt after complications arose. I received this news from Peru and it was in Spanish, so the following has been adjusted based on translation (only the quotes, the rest is my own work.)
Juan Vargas representatives said today that, 'there is a complication." Carlos Thin the players representative, informed the Colombian public that 'the terms of the agreement and in the middle are being discussed," which suggests to me that a deal is yet to have been agreed with the club, despite the player training with Portsmouth.
The representative of his former club have threatened, 'there were many clubs interested before the agreement with the Portsmouth' and is willing 'to refloat some offerings.' The players former club want any complications tied up today. Although Portsmouth thought that they had already reached a deal with the players club.
The representative of Vargas announced on August 1st that Columbus (his former club) and Portsmouth had arrived at a verbal agreement on the transfer of the player, "although is presumed that still there are discrepancies on the financial terms."
If I have interpreted this correctly the player is now threatening not to play in a friendly for Peru. Below is a direct translation from the story.
"On the other hand, Thin indicated (the players agent) that does not know if the player will join with the Peruvian selection for the friendly game against Panama, that will be celebrated next Wednesday in File."
Portsmouth are apparently angry as they claim a deal has already been agreed for the player. The players representative said, 'the assembly was done at Columbus, I imagine that the club (will) responded to the Peruvian Confederacy of Soccer."
Portsmouth are not expected to increase a bid on their initial agreement with the club. We will wait and see if this story develops?
In other news- Kanu will undergo a medical at Fratton Park about mid day.
