Portsmouth have been shoved into transfer speculation once again. As if the continuous media circus on manager Harry Redknapp weren’t enough, it appears that key midfielder Sulley Muntari could just be heading out of Fratton Park too.
Goal.com has reported that Valencia manager Ronald Koeman, who is frantic about wringing some pivotal changes in the team, is chasing the Ghanaian international midfielder from Portsmouth. Koeman requires a defensive midfielder after dropping captain David Albelda from his plans and was originally chasing Liverpool’s Mohamed Sissoko.
But now that Sissoko is almost certain to join Italian giants Juventus, Koeman appears to be running for Muntari. Redknapp is disinclined to let the former Udinese player leave but Muntari has already set his eyes on big European clubs and it’s no secret that he would jump ship should a big offer is presented on the table.
Muntari is currently with his national team Ghana at the African Cup of Nations. Portsmouth manager Redknapp has already underlined his importance in the team and is a huge admirer of the 23-year player. Should Muntari indeed leave this January, how do you think Pompey will cope without him?
