The deal for Anelka isn`t as close as the player is making out. He had previously told reporters that he had had chats with Harry and that he was interested in a possible move.
It now appears that Anelka is another player in a long list and that he was using the interest from Portsmouth to boost his chances of a big move.
Harry Redknapp said, ‘We have made enquiries and spoken to people over there but we’re nowhere near a deal at the moment.”
‘He would be a good buy at the right price, but the figures they are talking at the moment are beyond us.’
There goes another big name “proposed” signing? ow well he`s lazy anyway!
