Vital Football told you yesterday that Pompey will make D?Alessandro a Pompey player and nothing has changed.

Last night however Portsmouth submitted an offer to the player?s agent of twenty five thousand pounds a week. D?Alessandro?s agent had already told Portsmouth that his client wanted thirty thousand pounds a week.

D?Alessandro will fly back to Argentina today to see his family. Although he is not expected to lower his wage demand before he leaves. (But you never know!)

As Vital Pompey have already confirmed Portsmouth will be willing to pay D?Alessandro thirty thousand pounds a week but are prepared to let him wait. Pompey apparently have until the 30th of June to do a deal with the player before other clubs can come in for him.

D?Alessandro wants to stay at Portsmouth and now every Pompey fan is hoping that he agrees to the slightly reduced terms before flying back. If he doesn?t I fully expect Portsmouth to pretend to loose interest before completing the deal and giving into the players high wage demand. (Lua Lua anyone?)

I don?t think he will lower his wage demands but we can only hope!
