According to The Sun, one of a few papers who seem determined that Villa will offload Gareth Barry, say that Steven Gerrard is 'backing' Rafa Benitez's wish to bring Barry to Anfield. Isn't that tapping up a player? It will certainly have an unsettling effect on our captain.
According to the red top the scouse and England midfielder, who is close friends with Barry, 'gave the plan an emphatic thumbs-up'. They continued: 'SunSport revealed on Tuesday that Benitez has made Barry, 27, his No 1 transfer priority. He has contacted Villa boss Martin O'Neill and has told him he can have first option on the likes of Peter Crouch and John Arne Riise as part of a possible player-exchange deal.'
The fee if no exchange can be arranged according to the press is £12million. According to our latest poll there isn't a fee around worth selling Barry for as it would send out the wrong signals!
Maybe if we have to sell him we take Peter Crouch, Scott Carson and John Arne Riise + £5million! :o)
As far as I can see, there are no quotes for this story but if Gerrard has been talking about another teams player, then we should go all out not to sell the player to that team, as said it seems to me that there is an attempt here to unsettle our skipper.
