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.
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 ...... ?
