Vital Villa had a rumour in our forum on the 10th April that Gareth Barry was wanted by Liverpool (the rumour went on to suggest we'd be looking at getting John Arne Riise and Peter Crouch as part of the deal).
Today The Sun have caught up, not bad lads, just 5 days later. They have an article by Shaun Custis saying that Rafa Benitez is desperate to lure the Villa skipper to Anfield and that they would be prepared to pay £12million for him.
Get out of town.
How could our captain and now England international be worth so little?
As voiceoftheholte just said in our : forum thread (click here)
'If we were to comment on every transfer rumour we would be here all year, let alone all day. In simple terms, Barry goes away with England and trains and talks to other quality players. If Gerrard thinks he is quality he would have told Benitez. So yes it is plausible for Redscouse to want Barry. Yes they are likely to have more of an attraction in terms of European Football and possibly wages. But that is never the whole story.'
Adding, 'As for the £12 million quote, that has been put out by someone at Liverpool to set a benchmark. Villas response should be that we are a buying not selling club and that infact, we are considering a £15 million bid for Gerrard and Crouch. Silly I know, but they started it. I mean £12 million for Barry?? With the money sloshing around football now lets start at £25 million + Crouch. Every player has his price but you make sure that the price only favours the selling club.'
Well said voice!
Liverpool, forget it... and that goes for Chelsea as well!
