When having a little look around the internet this morning I came across something that ‘claimed’ a United interest in Glen Johnson.

Gary Neville is coming towards the end of his time with United and the claims were that old red nose himself Sir Alex Ferguson is watching the right back with a view to a possible £6m bid in the summer?

Johnson has been in fantastic form since he signed for Pompey permanently, such good form in fact that calls for an England recall are coming from all angles. Sadly until we can make that cement step up to the next level we are always likely to find it hard to hold on to our top players, particularly if the ‘big 4’ come calling.

How true these rumours are I am not sure, but I would say they would not surprise me. So if his progress is maintained throughout the remainder of the season then we might have to brace ourselves for a summer move by United – this is not to say that he would leave, or would even need to be sold however.

Anyway, this is something for another time isn’t it…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
