First of all we had Pedro Mendes going to Spain with Jonas Gutierrez coming the other way, now we have Sulley Muntari to Spurs with Younes Kaboul coming to Fratton in exchange…

This is something that was quietly whispered around January time but The People has ‘rekindled’ this rumour by claiming that Spurs will offer Kaboul plus £7m cash to land Muntari.

Apparently he had ‘an outstanding debut season in England’, which to be honest I did not see. Do not get me wrong he showed some moments of pure class but I would not say his season was ‘outstanding’. This is not to say that I do not rate the guy, as I do and fully believe that next season we would see the very best of him on a more consistent basis – consistency seemed to be his main problem.

If there is any truth to this ‘rumour’ – which lets face it there is a fair chance there might not be as it could just be the January rumours recycled with an ‘added extra’ – it would depend on how much Harry Redknapp really wanted Kaboul – who appears to have his heart set on a move to Pompey – and how much he wants to keep Muntari.

Personally Muntari remains one of those that I would like to keep as we need to build on what we have, but he is also one that I feel could be parted with if it suited us…

The same paper also ‘claims’ that Peter Crouch’s move to Pompey is immanent – with a fee rising to £12m being agreed with Liverpool and a £4m per year contract agreed with the England man.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
