Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp is still interested in the services of Sulley Muntari.
Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp is interested in the services of Sulley Muntari - at the right price.
Muntari's club Udinese are ready to drop their asking price for the Ghana midfielder with the hefty £10million price tag deterring Redknapp from landing the player during the last two transfer windows.
The Pompey boss would be keen to chase Muntari's signature if the fee was lowered, with reports in Italy saying Udinese are ready to drop the amount to £6million.
"I still like Muntari. He's a good player. It just depends on how much money he would cost us," Redknapp told The News.
Udinese sports chief Roberto Zanzi revealed that Muntari was likely to be sold in the summer.
"Muntari is a player we believe in, but we will consider offers in the near future," he said.
"Portsmouth were very interested in him in January."
Muntari's agent Stefano Antonelli has told the Italian press that the player is interested in a move to Roma if he is to remain in Italy whilst Internazionale are also said to be interested. The player himself would favour a move to the Premiership.
