Two Villa Striker Links

Two Villa Striker Links

A report in the Daily Mail today suggested that Villa are looking at smashing their record transfer fee (£9.5million for Juan Pablo Angel during the John Gregory era) and bring in former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan.

The report suggests that the Uruguay striker has an exit clause in his contract meaning he can leave Villarreal if a £15 million bid is made.

The Daily Mail have Forlan quoted as saying: 'It’s not only Liverpool who’ve asked about signing me. In January, I rejected a loan move to Sunderland. I also know another Premier League club are asking about my availability.'

So whether this is the Mail guessing that Villa is 'the other club' or not I don't know! Still, that is a better link than the one in the Daily Star claiming Villa and Birmingham are fighting it out for the capture of West Ham striker Marlon Harewood. I have seen reports where the striker is reportedly valued at around £3million.

Harewood..........Nooooooooooooooooo. Might as well go the whole hog and buy Heskey to partner him. No seriously - if you had a blank cheque book and needed to get your team to push onto Europe is Harewood the man you buy? I think I would rather have Bobby Zamora.

Harewood's agent is insulting MON by even spreading this ridiculous rumour. And Tyler, Zamora is only slightly better. Lerner and MON are in charge now not Ellis and O'Leary

A big, no, a huge 'NO' to either. Lordy, Lordy, the Harewood talk will give me nightmares and keep me tossing and turning all night. Let Small Heath beat us to the punch for his signature, please! The thought of Forlan is almost as bad. Would he really be the answer to our need for a consistent goalscorer? Somehow I think not.

If u can't score at united, he must be on ugly son of a bitch or he just crap - bat at 15 mill - your dreaming aren't u?? W should spend 20 mill on Babel and Sneijder - Vince Grella from parma instead of coco. Half the price - twice the player.
