REDKNAPP - PETROV DEAL IN LIMBO
Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp admits his bid to bring Celtic midfielder
Stilian Petrov to Fratton Park is in limbo.
The Barclays Premiership side's latest bid for the Bulgaria international has
been rejected by the Glasgow giants.
Now the Pompey boss concedes he is at a loss over the next move for the
Redknapp told the Scottish Daily Express: ``We have made a new offer but
Celtic have come back to us and told us it won't be accepted.
``We have been informed that they want to keep hold of the player.
``That is their prerogative as Stilian Petrov is their player and is still
``It now looks like we are struggling because we have made a good offer for
the player but Celtic have made it clear they don't want to sell him.
``We don't know what else we can do.
``I can understand Gordon Strachan's position because I would do the same to
try and keep one of my top players.
``Whether we go back in with another offer is up to the money-people to decide
but we feel we have made a fair offer for a player.''
Having seen the way Petrov played V Everton, i would love to have him for another season as if he wants to move next year we will get 5mill+ for him again. He is a fine player and vital quality for CL. I know this will not be popular but if we get a good year out of him and maybe get through the group stages of CL and win the SPL again, we can sell him next year and have more coin in our pocket when we do imo.
I say if he wants to go, he should go....
Personally I still think he should go. He's made it clear he doesn't want to play for Celtic and would rather leave so get some good money for him the now and put it to good use and get someone in to replace him.
just get him to * - get the money now cause we need it to strengthen our team
Why get low balled we have a 7 million player so we will sell him for 7 million i dont care how much he wants to go and anyway Redknapp says he wont go anymore but Mandaric has made it perfectly clear he still desperately wants him at Pompey so let him desperately pay to get him to Pompey
He say's he wants Petrov but wont be held to ransom by Celtic. I really can't see him going any higher than £6million. If it got that high then I'd bite the guys hand off for it.
Just because Petrov plays in the * SPL it doesnt mean english clubs or any other club for that matter should be able to come in and buy him for less than he's worth. Going by player valuations these days Petrov is easily worth 7 million and i dont see why we should part with him for less. If he was at Arsenal or something do you think they would let him go for less than they valued him at? No chance! I know we are short of dosh and that we could be doing with a LB and a target man but should we rip ourselves of to get them? What do you all think/
I think we will be waiting a very long time before anyone even contemplates offering £7million for Petrov.
I am sorry to say that at that price Petrov wont be going anywhere soon as i would like to see him gone as he is just a cause of unrest in the dressing room.
captain of his country at 23, champions league and uefa cup experience, former young player of the year, think he was a former player of the year.
Petrov is worth 7 Million if we dont get that then we get to keep a 7 million player another season so were the winners in all of this
Yep mate, pretty sure he is. He wore a poncy all white suit when he recieved it..
Celtic Knocked Back Pompey's Bid of £5million
Personaly Naeh-Luck,Did anyone see the Interview with Redknapp on Sky-Sports-News Yesterday as he says he wont be held to Ransom by clubs.
WELL REDKNAPP CELTIC IS HOLDING YOU TO RANSOM (good on them!! I say as Clubs have bought players in the past of Celtic and for peanuts)
Redknapp Didn't even mention Celtic so whats all that about,That
interview on Sky-Sports-News went on for about ten-mintues and not one mention of Stan The Man going to Portsmounth * but Redknapp did mention a few other clubs that are trying to take advantage of the players Valuation.
I personaly think Celtic should let Stan Leave but there must be a barrier for Petrov coz its not fair on the player Who has come out and said he WANTS to leave so just let him but not for Under £7million and its about time Celtic done that to a club coz its happened to us in the past plenty times!!!(Lets hope pompey to pay the &-million and thats it end off!!!!)
Celtic should hold the player until they are getting a decent price. Pompey are moaning to anyone that will listen because when Stan plays for us in the CL, bigger clubs will come in for him and they'll loose out.
I don't believe we were offered 5 million.......but we'd probably take that for him........5.5 million at the most.........
Exactly after a good year he will still be worth 5mill+ next summer if we want to sell.
I dont see Petrov having that good a year at Celtic if he stays, and to me it proves two things the way its going, he is overated in value by most Tic fans, and the people running Celtic couldny well I was about to say, run a menage, but fitba wise they are not doing verywell!
redkanapp can some times be a * remember last summer when celtic went for anti niemi that * wanted somthing like 5 million for a goalkeeper that had just been relegated to the coca cola championship with southampton.
much as i wanted celtic to bring niemi to the club at the time i dont think he was a 5 million pound keeper.
