Massive Bid Required

Massive Bid Required

Operations Director Steve Stride has warned potential bidders for top scorer Milan Baros that they will have to come up with a 'massive' bid to prise him away from Villa Park.

Stride confirmed there is a release clause in the Czech's contract explaining on the official site:

'The reports are a bit misleading and, before anybody gets carried away, we're certainly not looking to sell Milan and nobody should think that's the case. But there is a clause in his contract, that if activated, would represent a massive profit for Aston Villa. There's been a lot of speculation over the weekend and we feel it's only right that the supporters know what the position is.'

Well done to Steve Stride for clarifying the matter at least.

Well that is better news... depends on the clubs definition of massive. (has the term ever been used to describe Mcanns passing range, if so expect a £7m bid to be accepted)

Massive profit would be nice and quite frankly for any profit I'd let him and his rollerskate feet go.
