John Carew To Become A Citizen?

John Carew To Become A Citizen?

Sky Sports are claiming that Manchester City boss Mark Hughes (who has just been told his job is secure by the Citeh owners) is turning his attention to Villa striker John Carew.

Madness?

Well he was linked to them in January as well and although nothing came of it, I could see the sense and would have almost guaranteed that JC would be cleared out in the summer. However since the Ajax incident and after pulling out of the Moscow game due to fears about his back on the plastic pitch, he has reminded us all what he does best... he scores goals.

As our only striker who seems able and willing to shoot, let alone score, and with so many Villa fans taking him to their hearts as the Holte End hero, it would be a very dicey thing for Martin O'Neill to consider wouldn't it?

I guess every player has a price but to sell our top scorer - no matter how injury prone he has been, as he said recently what would he have achieved this season if not for the 20 odd games he's missed - the price would have to be massive wouldn't it? Not that massive money would put off Man City, it looks like they have enough cash floating around, but I would think that Hughes will still not want to over inflate prices?

Sky claim that Hughes is focused on Carew as his interest in Blackburn's Roque Santa Cruz has cooled.

Villa aren't a selling club are they? Think they proved last year with Barry that only silly money will part Villa with a player. Interesting link but ...... ?

Everyone, absolutely everyone of any consequence will be linked with City this summer. On the other hand, Carew would be perfect for them.

I heard this deal might be on in January, so not surprised if it does happen in the summer, so now we have Laursen to replace, how do we replace Carew and Barry too (if they go)?

i love MON but if he allows the big man to go all the fans will completely lose faith in him. Carews a legend and fans fav and our best goal scorer, his goal to games ratio this season is brilliant
