Barry's Agent Says Player Wants Liverpool Move

According to Shaun Custis of the Sun, amongst others, Gareth Barry has phoned Martin O'Neill saying after 10 years at Villa he wants a fresh challenge and wants to be able to move to Liverpool.

The Villa skipper's agent Alex Black is quoted as saying:

'Gareth has spoken to Martin since he returned from England’s game in Trinidad and told him how he feels. At this stage of his career Gareth wants to be playing Champions League football and believes this is his chance to do it.'

All players want to play Champions League, all players should want to help the team they are with play Champions League!

The report says Barry hopes a 'compromise deal' of around 15million can be sorted. Errr, why? He is our player, contracted for another two years, if they want him let them pay. We don't need to compromise on this. IF he has to go (and I'd rather anywhere else after their antics or to tell him to see out next season) then we need top dollar or 10million, Crouch and Riise. If they want to unsettle our players and turn their heads, then very least we can do is what Spurs do and refuse to do business at any rate other than one that suits us. Spurs always usually get a great price for departing players, lets hope the new era at Villa means we do the same.

Enough of this pandering to the players, I want our club to pander to ourselves.

Again, there aren't direct quotes from the player, but with his agent now angling also for a move, it does look like the decision has been made. Tough on Barry really that it isn't his decision, it is Randy's and Martin O'Neill's!

It has been obvious since the first interview the day after the story broke(i have to be selfish etc etc)If he prefers liverpool over us then he isn`t welcome to wear a villa shirt anymore.Whatever happened to thinking about the team and not just your self?

I agree with you regarding contracts I really do. However, 10M as well as crouch (10M) and Riise (5M). Do you honestly think Barry is worth 25M? Seems slightly high to me to be fair.

Well said JP, if he wants Champions League so badly then let him go, at our price, to any team but Liverpool. Unless the price is very right in our favour, as you have suggested. Otherwise, as you say we are rolling over for a player. I suggest he replaces Lampard if, as suggested he is off to foreign parts.

5 times crouch is not worth 10m, that's laughable! And Gerrard should have kept his trap shut on the whole transfer issue, he's a cheating diver. Anyone remember when he mugged for that free kick against us first game of last season?
villaaaah
Yeah, well said Fear, we can't let other clubs bully us like this. Knowing MON he will wait until the last day of the window to let him go anyway, and hopefully under his terms.

"Sorry Gareth, you've brought this on yourself" - is what I'd say when I explained to him that Aston Villa will not continue to set a precedent by allowing other clubs to unsettle and eventually prize away our best players. And that as such he's got a 2 year season ticket in the Family Stand at Villa Park. Cost us in the short term.

15 million is about right for him, he's not the greatest player in the world but a hell of a decent one, you will probably get steve finnan in that deal aswell who is still a bloody good player. I see why Rafa is buying Barry, he links up well with Stevie and two of our other midfielders are off to the olympics at the start of the season plus we are not to sure if Babel will be fully fit so its makes logical sense as would keeping Alonso but of course we have no moolah and need to sell to spend which is a pity but hey-ho thats how it goes. I feel sorry for Aston Villa fans i know what it would be like losing Gerrard to say Inter Milan, and i am not impressed with how Liverpool have handled the whole thing seeing as i know Rafa would go Ape Sh!t if Mouriniho was going "come here steven its for the best" all over again... But he's been a loyal servent to you and he has all but said himself he wants to come here (after alot of nudging by the papers) I'm going to welcome Garry but i've always liked Aston Villa and MoN so i kinda feel sad for them...but not too much ;)

Let's get real - no use hanging on to Barry if he doesn't want to be at VP...get the best price possible so MON can rebuild and move on. Hopefully Wenger will show interest and an auction will take place. I think Barry is making a big big mistake but there you go...

Sorry we're not good enough for you Gareth, I wish you the best of luck on the bench and hope it all works out for you being just another squad member. Never mind, your regular England spell was nice whilst it lasted. After ten years I at least thought you'd have the decency to tell us yourself. Cheers.

It was obvious from his lamentable performance against Wigan Barry was off. That and his stark refusal to deny it, you didn't need to be a genius to work it out. I agree however that we need to bleed Liverpool dry for their tapping-up, we're in a position of strength. 17mill and not a penny less.

If we decide to sell, we should definitely hold out for a higher fee. English international midlfielders generally aren't cheap: Carrick and Hargreaves went for 18.6m and 17m respectively!

Its very disappointing to see the way he has gone about it. I would much rather him come out himself and say I want to go to Liverpool. That would be the HONEST way of dealing with the speculation. I agree with Saurat, it was obvious at the Wigan game his mind was elsewhere. The main point here is why, have we not reported Liverpool to the FA. It is apparent they have got to Barry, either by Gerrard or Tom Jones. Therefore they have broken the rules. Man U have reported Madrid for their courtship of Ronaldo, Liverpool have done exactly the same with Barry. I still do not think he is irreplacable, he is not our best player and although I will be sad to see him go, he can be replaced for a lot less than the money we will receive for him.

Why? Were all disappointed with Barry that he looks to be off. Reporting Liverpool isn't going to help matters. If he wants to go, let him go. No point in keeping an unhappy player. I'd take 8-10m plus Crouch.

Maybe GB is just a bit wiser than the rest of us. We have had so many years of under investment, has it really changed? Would any of us be surprised if we lost out on Sidwell to Man C even though allegedly we've been the front runners. Is this the price for dragging our feet? Is Sidwell even on the shopping list? All we ever have to go on is speculation, partly from the press but I suspect equally from ourselves as each year we believe this is going to be the one where we play with the big boys. Just watching the Dutch game last night I saw Van Brockhurst and Wesley Sneijder play great games. Both men were heavily linked with Villa. In truth we probably never had much chance of signing either but the band wagon was rolling and we jumped on. I firmly believe our lack of enthusiasm in the transfer windows goes against us. I'm losing count of how many players we need just to bring the numbers back up to last seasons squad.

My prediction for next season, Villa do the double over barry and the pool, finish in 4th ahead of them, while they get knocked out of the champions league group stage with barry not playing any part due to unfortunate timing of injuries...... Think barry think....

sell him to the continent. let him get champs league there. i don't see why we have to sell him to Liverpool. United wouldn't sell them heinze. That said, i'm still sceptical without direct quotes from GB himself. the last thing we need is to have to replace such a consistent midfield player. once again today those around us are being linked to superstars and we're being linked to fairly average players. Liverpool would not be a good move for GB, he will quickly fall out of the England team if he moves there

Mister Mick, i second that gesture. I play 5-a-side twice a week which is only a small down from the prem. GB isn't the fastes anyway so i reckon i could fill the void in the middle. Sign us up MON!! give us 2 years in the reserves to boost our fitness and confidence like 90% of our recent signings and we'll be the muts nuts. In terms of a contract i'll play for peanuts, as long as there dry roasted. I'm cheap, but not that cheap

Just a small point everyone. We all seem quite quick to turn on GB. He's not left yet, he's not publicly said himself that he wants to leave and no transfer has occurred. He is still our captain and has given 10 years to this club. IF he leaves, then we can all feel free to dramatically lower our opinions of him. For now, he is still our captain. Anyone else agree with me on this?

He hasn't been acting like a captain. He's been playing the cowards game. All he had to say was '' I'm flettered by liverpools interest, but i'm a villa player and i believe we're building something special here. Until someone tells me different i'm a villa player.'' It's standard stuff. If the chubby spanaird was serious he would still have put an offer in. I hope he stays but as far as i'm concerned Barry's tainted his image.

The only words ommitted from the quotes from (Barry's best buddy) Gerrard, Rafa the pioson dwarf and Barry himself are i'm staying where I am. Because there a club with a future!!!

The fact is that no matter what GB wants it looks like liverpool haven't got the money so unless they manage to sell one of their overpriced players (no way is Crouch worth more than 7-8 million imo and I wouldn't want him at VP for even less than that) then Barry is not going there. Now if one of the genuine title contenders were to come in for him I could understand him going and they would also have the cash available or just not bid. Yes Ferguson plays games to get the best price but ultimately, if he wants a player he pays the price he has to.

You're all saying "ooh he's still the captain" "ooh he hasn't left". I've seen this all before. Dragged out through the media. Fact is, he's in a position where he's expected to come out and say "This is b*llocks, I'm a villa player through and through, and I can't wait for next season here at Villa Park". He's not done that. He's not even said "I've had a great time at Villa, and have given them my all. After ten years I want a change of scenery." In fact if he'd said that I'd've respected him for it. ________________________________________________________________ - - -NO Instead he got his agent to let the media know he wants out. That's like getting your missus to phone work because you're hung over. He's lost all respect I ever had for him, and clearly..YES CLEARLY..he's not Villa through and through. His lack of denial seals cupability.

I'm still going to wait for something more concrete than an apparent quote from his agent before turning my back on a player who was a Villa hero not so long ago. I seem to rememberSteven Gerrard looking like he was going to Chelski a few seasons back only to turn around and commit his future to Liverpool. Perhaps if all the Liverpool fans had turned on him before he'd left then he would have decided to go intsead

The difference between Gerrard and Barry is Gerrard is a Liverpool fan. Although Barry has been here 10 years I understand he was a Spurs fan as a boy. His heart is no longer here and therefore we should sell him but I once again say it MUST be on our terms.

I think Barry needs MON and Villa more then MON and Villa needs Barry. After all these years of good play, all of a sudden he is one of the most sought after players in England(If you believe the papers anyway), He is flavor of the month. Let him go to Liverpool for around 15mill plus Crouch(If on the table) and watch as Barry complains and whines about not getting his game week in week out due to Rafa's rotation system, then return to Villa in about 2 seasons. You Just Watch.

Following this mornings statement from the club confirming his transfer request my stance on this has changed. Gareth kindly **** off. He will find himself playing left back and warming the bench for liverpool. hios form will drop, he will fall out of the England side and it will serve him right. he won't get in the liverpool team ahead of Macherano and Lucas and will be a shell of his former self by the end of the season. GET OUT OF OUR CLUB!!! I still think we should lodge a complaint about Liverpools clear tapping up in this matter

Right. We're gonna lose Barry. But we want top dollar. Right. That's pretty much what we know. Here's something else. You look at the pool squad and there's some decent players there for the picking. Thing is, the chubby spanaird struggles in the prem. We all go on about breaking into the top 4 but they are supposed to be title contenders, yet they can't break the top 3. In europe he does well same as in spain, but when it comes to the bread and butter stuff in the prem he hasn't got a clue. They aren't full of crap players, just a manager who doesn,t know what to do with them. I'm guessing we could come out of this with some decent players and Barry may end up losing his way as he sits it out on the bench.

MON pleeeeez don't sell Barry to Liverpool! They need punishing after this. If you're gonna sell, rip them the ***k off. Rip them off more than they've ever been ripped off. I want 20M plus Crouch. I don't want to play Crouch in the first team, just put him in the reserves and laugh at him. And if Lpool can't afford it, put Barry in the reserves and we'll laugh at him instead. Barry you're a ******** *****wit ******** and you stink of ******** *****. ******** *****er.

To be honest, I think he'll actually be taking a drop in wages to go to Liverpool. Surely there's no way they'll offer him more than the 80k a week we've offered??

I would love it even more if Chelsea were to bid for Gerrard and Barry. Haha imagine Rafa's face, i'd love to be a fly on the wall at Anfield. (Obvoiusly after stating publicly that they want them both) then Gerrard being tapped up by John Terry. That would be just better than sex.

If his heart tells him he needs to be elsewhere, Anfield wherever, then as long as any suitors stump up the required cash, he should be allowed to move on.
