Gareth Barry Bid IN - OUT - IN - OUT

Gareth Barry Bid IN - OUT - IN - OUT

There are reports online right now that Villa have agreed a £19million fee with Liverpool for Gareth Barry.

NOTHING has been announced on either official site, therefore I would doubt the reports, especially having just read the Express & Star saying 'sources close to the club' as denying these reports.

I'll believe it as and when either official site announce it, other than that, the stand off remains!

After months of haggling over a fee for Gareth Barry, Liverpool and Aston Villa have reportedly agreed on £17.5m plus Steve Finnan. The Daily Mail website is claiming in an exclusive on Wednesday afternoon that the two clubs have come to an agreement on a deal worth £19m - which would be odd as the oft-quoted price tag was £18m. According to the report, although Liverpool do need to sell to buy Barry, they have offers on the table for both Jermaine Pennant and Yossi Benayoun while they are still hopeful of selling Andriy Voronin, Alvaro Arbeloa and Xabi Alonso.

I'm going to stick my neck out and claim BS. 1) Why 19m all of a sudden when we're only asking for 18? 2) The report stems from the Daily Mail.

When I read the article I was inclined to think it was supposed to now be £19m because of Arsenals interest. I didn't see any offers coming in from London...anyone else?

its obviously a slow news day at daily mail towers. I think its made up. Everyone who is covering the story is quoting the mail, yet they have no quotes or sources themselves. Think the spanish waiter will neeed £18m in readies before we part with Barry, especially after the Keane deal. And I say not a penny less. Though I'd take Finnan for £1m. Though would rather keep Barry anyway. Think its about time we set a deadline on this. Else I can see them stumping up the cash 1hr before the transfer window closes and we'll have no time to spend it on a replacement. then they'll just end up gloating about it.
