Sulley Muntari is on the verge of accepting a move to Inter Milan in a deal which he calls “too good to turn down.” The Portsmouth midfielder is expected to be sold for a cool 12.7 million pounds. Pompey boss Harry Redknapp knows that the move will make them a nice profit and improve their ability to go out and get other players.

Both sides seem to be happy with the move, but Muntari is still sad to leave a place he loves. He spoke of his close connection with Redknapp and how he will miss him and the fans. Despite the heavy heart, Muntari knows that going to Inter will be better for his career and he is looking forward to the future. He was sure not to give up this opportunity after he lost the chance to play for Manchester United earlier in his career; which seems to be something he regrets.

Overall, this move will benefit both sides as Portsmouth already has an adequate midfield even without Muntari. With the extra salary space, Redknapp will be able to make a more serious bid for Chelsea’s Shaun Wright-Phillips, a player he has been interested in for a while. Redknapp also commented that he doesn’t need to sell anyone else now, suggesting that he is looking to resign some of their current players as well.
