Before I begin, this really hasn’t been mooted anywhere but now that Manchester City have written to the FA asking for permission to bring in a keeper on an emergency loan deal, I really think this could happen.
Portsmouth keeper David James used to play for Manchester City and there is no denying he is still a good goalkeeper at the grand age of 39. With 3 massive games coming up for City, they obviously need a solid, reliable keeper to play in their remaining games and I think James is the man.
Manchester City would have no problem throwing Pompey a few quid for James and there is no doubt the south coast club could do with a few more pound coins. James spent 2 years at Eastlands and I for one feel he could do a job for City in this all important run-in.
The only thing that may prevent the move is Portsmouth’s FA Cup final which takes place a week after the Premier League campaign finishes.
I really am keen to hear what you have to say on this. Comments below please.
