The Rumour That Wouldn't Die
Despite countless denials from all parties involved, Wolves are still being linked with a Milan Mandric takeover.
Mandric has now handed over control of Portsmouth to Franco-Russian businessman Alexandre Gaydamak in a deal worth £17 million , and is quoted in todays Mirror as saying :
'I know Jack Hayward well. I love football and I would be a liar if I said Portsmouth would be my last club.'
Whether or not this is another piece of tabloid mischief making, or an actual indication of Mandric`s true intent to takeover Wolves is yet to be seen.
But following on from Milan`s success at establishing Pompey in the top flight, and his apparent willingness to make funds available for team strengthening when it`s needed, few would argue that the move would be on the very best interests of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
