You might remember last weekend there was talk that ‘super agent’ Pini Zahavi was putting together a consortium to takeover at Pompey – that was labelled an ‘exclusive’ by our old friend Alan Nixon in the Sunday People, well Simon Jones in the Mail online late on Friday evening was ‘claiming’ that the Israeli agent is ‘closing in’ on his takeover deal…

It is being said that his consortium will come in with a £70m offer that would not only take control of the club, but also wipe out our reported debts – word I have been getting is that Sacha Gaydamak is only wanting to sell a minority 49% stake, so he can retain a majority 51%, ‘if’ this reported takeover has any legs it is not clear if it is a majority, minority or complete takeover… if any takeover at all!

Like the previous article in the other paper, this also says that Zahavi’s plan is to bring talented youngsters from around the globe to Pompey, build them up and sell them on and start again – as said before we would basically become a ‘feeder club’, but a feeder club with a ‘proposed’ endless supply of talent using his connections in the game – and he has a fair few, and has a client list of some of the games top stars.

‘New’ developments on this take in this story say that Avram Grant is being lined up for a return to the club as a director of football to oversee the work that Tony Adams does, although there is also talk that Slaven Bilic could feature somewhere…

They often say there is no spoke without fire, so there could be more than a hint of truth in this – or maybe it is all complete hot air? What do you reckon fellas?
