Portsmouth midfielder wants to play for ‘a super team’ after missing out on Manchester United

So what does that make Pompey? However, before you assume that these words came from the not insubstantial mouth of Lassana Diarra, they were actually uttered by one of his team-mates, who appears to be on the verge of signing for Inter.

Sulley Muntari arrived in England as a relatively unknown player, yet his performances for Portsmouth have caught the eye on several occasions, especially when the Ghanaian displays a real eye for goal. Sky Sports reports that Jose Mourinho appears to have convinced the player to head over to Milan, which is something of a blow for Harry Redknapp.

“There are teams when they come to you, you need to listen to them,” Muntari told

“Harry has developed my game, he has been a father figure to me.

“I love him, and also the Portsmouth fans, but when Inter call you need to listen.

“I already missed a chance to play for a super team (Manchester United) this time I need to seize it.”

Can Pompey still kick on without their star midfielder? Redknapp is sure to make a profit on Muntari after shelling out £7 million for the player last summer, who should he sign as a replacement?
