Pompey signings thus far;
David James- Manchester City, £1.2m
David Thompson- Wigan, free
Sol Campbell- Arsenal, free
Glen Johnson- Chelsea, loan
Portsmouth are supposedly armed with a 30 million transfer kitty! We have only spent 1.2 million of that so far however; Fernandes should sign today for either 8.5 or 10 million depending what you read. Let`s call it 10 million for arguments sake. Portsmouth will open talks with Martins today, after the club agreed an eleven and a half million pounds offer from Portsmouth (according to reports in Italy) Kanu should also be confirmed as a Pompey player today!
Unlikely, but if Martins does sign along with the other two that would be 22.7 million pounds spent this summer. I also expect us to make a 5 million pound move for Sulley Muntari taking the spending 27.7 million. (If not Muntari then a left sided player around the 5 million mark. Barry?) With the rest of the money being put towards Sol Campbell and Martins wages.
If Pompey don`t sign Martins (should I say when we don`t) Harry is thought to be ready to go after Forlan and a second striker (maybe Nugent) Even if he did it this way we would be getting on for 30 million pounds spent this summer.
So what was the point of that article? Um… I guess that the big money signings are on their way, they should be kick started by the signing of Fernandes today.
Distin deal may also be back on, more to follow on that later.
