Monaco Target Aston Villa Striker

Monaco Target Aston Villa Striker

Reports just in are suggesting that Aston Villa's top scorer Milan Baros is a target for Monaco.

Reports in France suggest they will put a bid of around £8million in for the former Liverpool striker who cost Villa £6.5million last season.

David O'Leary looks set to have to offload the striker who, despite injuries and a team set up to hoof the ball forward, managed to score one goal every other game last season.

There is a get out clause in his contract, rumoured to be between £15-18million but it seems he will be sold for far less to cover up the mess Doug Ellis has made of the finances at Villa yet again.

I wouldn't mind him going if it is for the amount specified in the get out clause as we have some good talent coming through (as long as Angel stays - even if not scoring, he can teach the young lads alot) and we could buy 3-4 decent players for that kind of money. Problem is, I don't trust O'Leary to either use the funds wisely or to be able to develope the talent we already have. :-/ I am, however backing him (for now) for the sake of the team - maybe, with our support, they kan rekindle that team spirit that took us to the brink of Europe 2 seasons ago.

Andy Johnson £8.5m Top scorer in Euro 2004 £8m makes sense doesn't it. £10m minimum, and I think he should be kept anyway, as he could be the man to push us to the staggering heights of mid table
