PORTSMOUTH hope to tie up a deal for Real Madrid’s Javier Saviola when the Argentina star’s agent arrives in England tomorrow.
The striker has been given the all-clear to leave the Spanish giants. Saviola, 24, is furious he has only started just once for Real this season and says the situation is “intolerable”.
He said: “I expressed to our coach Juande Ramos that I needed to play.
“I even said that if I wasn’t part of his plans, that he should tell the management to let me leave in the January transfer window because this situation is intolerable. I’m going through a very tough time.”
Newcastle, West Ham and Everton are also interested.
