Fratton Park man set for middle east move?
Portsmouth’s Algeria defender Nadir Belhadj could snub the chance to follow Avram Grant to West Ham in favour of a lucrative move to Qatar.
But Al-Sadd will have to at least double their £1.5m bid that was rejected last week. (Daily Mail)
You have to wonder about the Portsmouth man’s ambitions if this little piece of information is accurate. Moving to Qatar in footballing terms tends to mean you are over the hill and seeking one last big pay day, but Nadir Belhadj is only 27 so why would he opt against a chance to remain in the Premier League?
Whilst money is always going to be a motivating factor one wonders the sense in the former Lyon man just following the cash trail to Al-Sadd, after all he is surely not a poor man and would have been offered a pretty good deal at Upton Park.
