Rumoured Transfer Outs

Tugay (Midfield)

sas.. I am curious where exactly Pompey would find any cash to buy Santa Cruz. In my eyes, this swap is a 0% chance. We might buy Crouch, but it'll be with money made from selling Santa to City or Spurs, I don't see anyone else coming in for Santa either.

They have 18m from selling Diara, and 10m from selling defoe, of which they only spent 4m of on Belhadj? However I doubt if it will all be spent on RSC. Maybe Crouch + 5m or so.. Id rather have Bent..
