Villa Rescue Brown From Slave Labour
The Mail on Sunday has linked us once again with Manchester United's Wes Brown.
According to the report Martin O'Neill would see the right back as a perfect replacement for Olof Mellberg who leaves for Juventus in the summer.
Wes has been offered what is tantamount to slave labour wages at Manchester United, a poultry £55 000 a week - I mean, come on, who could seriously live on such rubbish money? The 28-year-old is apparently holding out for around £80 000 a week and United have said the offer on the table is their final offer.
Brown is a free agent at the end of the season so despite smashing our wage structure, the paper argues we'd be able to better the United offer and pay him a signing on fee.
Interesting link and one that did surface in the January transfer window. He does have a terrible injury record mind you, although in recent years I think that has improved - what do you all think, good signing or mercenary player?
