Villa Would Even Refuse £50m For Ash Young

Villa Would Even Refuse £50m For Ash Young

More quotes today saying there is no way that Aston Villa will sell Ashley Young.

The Villa boss has spoken to the press and in The Sun says the 24-year-old, who we grabbed from Watford for £9.5million in 2007, wouldn't be sold even at £50million.

Is that clear enough for everyone?

Ash is not for sale.... gulp!

Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs, Barcelona and Real Madrid have all been linked but MON says of last years PFA Young Player Of The Year:

'If somebody came in with £50m, I would not do it. It would be up to the chairman but the last time I spoke to Randy Lerner he was not entertaining anything, at any price. There are loads of teams who want him but he's at the right club. I could not be more strong on this. He's not going anywhere.'

In The Guardian he added:

'Sometimes you leave a little caveat in somewhere along the way, where you feel that there is no chance unless someone makes a silly offer – that suggests there is a possibility. But there is not. He won't be going. We're really happy with him. He may not stay here at Aston Villa for the rest of his life; we're going to have to try and make progress. But my own view is that for him to go anywhere at this minute, even if it came to it, wouldn't be the right thing for him.'

refuse a 50m bid, of course you would. although I dont think he is spurs bound and never have, I honestly think MON would take an offer of around 25m and the player would take a CL team in an instant. we as fans of B list teams have to accept we are all part of the foodchain and our best are pray to the Uniteds, Chelsea's etc all part of the fun...

Not sure we are part of the food chain to be honest, we dont need to sell to survive and if the so called larger teams left us alone to build we would mount a more serious challenge!!!! Until players stop becoming greedy and selfish, then we will always have the mentalitly of the big teams snapping up our prized players. I would love to see a player buck the trend and tell the so called big 4 to ***** off!!!!1

Even if we got 500m for him what would be the point if we never bring in the players, we have a billionaire chairman who says theres Money there to spend, we got well over 50m alone from TV revenue, 12m for Barry, 4.5m for Knight, then you need to question that we are the smallest squad in the premiership so we probably have one of the lowest wages to pay on a whole saving the club even more cash. Theres no point having the cash if we never going use it to bring in the players we need to play at the highest level.

villa 4 ever, everyone said the same last transfer window but we ended the window wiuth a net spend of plus 50m and most ppl were happy. I'm still optimistic that we will do the same this year. It is simply rediculous to think that we won;t be spnding a lot more money. It will get spent and spent well
