Well well, looks like Gareth Barry might be staying at Villa afterall.
HA HA! The Daily Mirror claim that the much loved new owners of Liverpool can't raise the cash for Gareth Barry so the deal could well be off !
According to the Times, Gareth Barry might himself pull the plug on a possible move to Liverpool if the Anfield outfit can't get the transfer sorted before the new season starts.
Arsenal are also linked but they have enough problems of their own meeting the payments for the Emirates Stadium and despite selling some players this summer, it isn't usually Arsene Wengers way to splash out £18million on a player.
I would LOVE to see Gareth Barry be the one to pull the plug and despite the fact it will be difficult for him to pledge allegiance, at least he can come out with some sort of apology and look to commit to Villa at least for this season, then everyone can assess what progress we have made and maybe he'll not need to move anywhere to fulfil his Champions League ambitions?
Despite his antics, I'd still love to see him stay, obviously he is the engine of our team and a key part of it.
Certainly been one of the longest running transfer saga's I can remember, if nothing else Liverpool have managed to unsettle the best player of one of their rivals!
