£12m For Baros And More For Barry?

£12m For Baros And More For Barry?

According to the weekend reports, Villa have told German club Hamburg they will have to pay £12million to secure the signing of Czech Republic international striker Milan Baros.

It is understood that Hamburg have had a bid of around £5m already turned down for the 24-year-old who cost Villa £6.5m last season from Liverpool.

Baros has apparently said he would like to move to Hamburg after being offered a £2million a year deal. Errm, how would he know what deal was on the table if Villa haven't given him permission to speak to the club?

Ellis told the official site, following a meeting: 'Hamburg's valuation of Milan falls way short of anything that is remotely acceptable. We are certainly not going to sell Milan Baros on the cheap.' Adding Hamburg officials had 'now gone back to Germany. We'll wait to see if there are any further developments.'
Ellis has refuted claims that Baros is unhappy and 'really wants to leave' saying 'Milan has two years left on his contract and his agent has assured us that he is happy at Villa and not looking to leave.'

According to the Sunday People (yes, I know) Doug Ellis has told Portsmouth that they will have to double their money if they wish to sign midfielder Gareth Barry. It would come as a major shock, especially to David O'Leary, if Barry was sold - he has also been linked several times to Tottenham Hotspur - as he is one of two players (Steven Davis being the other) that Villa's manager has said must be kept to build the team around.

It doesn't look as though you will be signing any new players this year with the policy of selling before buying in place. I can't see anyone matching Dreamy Doug's valuation of Baros and Barry.

If its true doug has actually done something right.Why should we sell them on the cheap if we even sell them at all.Just cause the papers say clubs are interested in our best players dont mean we have to sell them.

Your first 6 games will set the tone for the season. Be in the bottom 3 after 6 games and with no takeover DO'L will be sacked and the new man will struggle to keep the leaky wreck that is Aston Villa from going down

Glug,glug,glug.

On the other hand moneyy may come flooding in from the new guys, Doug gets life presidency, Martin O' Neil comes in with 30 million to spend and a UEFA place is a reality.

Mind altering drugs can be so much fun!

Life Presidency for Ellis? After what he's done a stiff prison sentence would be more appropriate.

Life presidency for Ellis! No f**king chance! He's already named a stand after himself. He's done very little worth remembering for Aston Villa and his most meaningful deed as chairman would be to step aside asap before he ruins the club more than he already has
