Adrian Mutu left Chelsea ‘in disgrace’ a few years back after having his contract cancelled after his shame of being caught snorting cocaine.

The fella did wrong, but so many footballers have done so in the past so although I do not know the ins and out of it I still find it hard to believe that Chelsea let a player go for free after paying £15m for him – but that is not our worry…

According to The People Pompey are one of 3 clubs ‘investigating’ the possibility of signing him in the January sales.

The Romanian hit 16 goals in 33 games last season for Fiorentina and has 6 in 12 this season, not a bad strike rate but the fella, although ‘not over the hill’ is 29 years old.

To be honest, forgetting his previous problems he would still not be for me and I would think that this is just another ‘speculative’ link with the floodgates about to open with the transfer window getting closer and closer to reopening.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
