Portsmouth seek payment from Inter

Debt-ridden Championship club Portsmouth have claimed that they are owed £900,000 by Inter due to the transfer of Sulley Muntari, but the player’s first club Udinese are also claiming compensation.
Portsmouth bought Muntari from Udinese in 2007 for £7 million, before the club’s financial difficulties began. One season later, Muntari was sold back to Serie A with Inter paying €16 million for his services. However, Portsmouth believe that Inter haven’t paid the full amount for the transfer yet, which in turns means it isn’t possible for the English side to pay Udinese what they are owed.
Pompey chief executive David Lambitt told the Daily Star: “We are owed €1m by Inter because Muntari has made a certain number of appearances for them. We are chasing the money and so were the administrators and now we are calling in FIFA.”
Udinese claim that Portsmouth owe them £450,000, but this fee cannot be paid until Inter pay their debt to Portsmouth.
Lambitt insisted: “At some stage, there has been an agreement between Udinese and Inter, whereby Inter appear to have assigned that €1m to Udinese.”
It seems that because of Portsmouth’s financial issues, Inter chose to bypass them in the process and pay Udinese instead. Portsmouth do not believe this is legal, however, and FIFA may have to sort out the disagreement.
