Manchester City Bid £20m For James Milner?

Manchester City Bid £20m For James Milner?


Sky Sports are claiming that Manchester City have bid for James Milner.

Not sure if this is accurate or just them putting 2+2 together. Time will tell as they say that no response from Villa has been made to the bid as yet.

Sky reckon that Man City are willing to pay around £20million for the 24-year-old England midfielder.

Ah right, now I know the response from Villa.... Bugger off!

We quoted Randy Lerner on the Milner 'issue' last week but just to remind you...

'I'm not worried about losing James Milner. I think James will play for Aston Villa and should play for Aston Villa. I'm not dismissive of the realities that a player that has received the attention and acclaim of James is going to spark discussion and debate about a move and so on. The answer is 'No', I don't worry about him leaving because he is wanted at this club.'

The young pfa player of the year for £20m? That is a reduction of £4m on yesterday's press quoted price for a start! Has he really lost that much form over night!?

Our latest poll asks what you'd sell him for, bearing in mind every player has their price, just look at Manchester United and the Ronaldo transfer.

20 mill is a ridiculous price, considering they spent 19 on Santa Cruz and 24 on Lescott. We should be saying no less than 35 compared with those 2 prices. No reason to worry, he has plenty of time left on his contract and look how stubborn we were over the Barry/Liverpool situation.

Ridiculous. Milners staying here, offers like that only make the decision easier.

Commenting as a neutral in your situation. Id say he's probably worth about 15 mill, add 7-8 for his age and remaining contract. 25 mill would be a more than fair offer. But surely if O'Neil had to sell h'd wait till after the world cup, his value could increase based on performance.

25 may be a fair offer, but I would definatley refuse it, who could we get for 25million that's better than Milner? Nobody in my opinion. And we'd never buy a player for 25million anyway, we'd get a couple of average replacements at best.

If the Citeh owners are that keen on our players, why didn't they buy Villa in the first place? Milner proved there was life after Barry and will prove it even more at the World Cup. The answer is f*** off, Citeh, because James Milner is the man to build our team around.

its strange to see the poll results so far (10.14 a.m) only 22% of us not willing to sell, while an incredible 78% of us quite happy to sell it seems for differing amounts, what do these 78% think we could do with the money! buy better, dont think so, if we sell milner thats a road that will lead all the way back to mid-table, because the message that will give to our other young gifted english players is u can leave has well if the price is right.

thing is, does every player at every club in the world not have a price? I would be gutted to see him go but if £40m offer came in (unlikely) + we have to take into account what the player wants. If he wants to stay then shut up shop, no sale. There are a few others in the first team I would be tempted with or not overly upset, if Milner goes it would be a sad day indeed.

I think Milner MUST stay...BUT if Citeh offered Richards, Ireland, Bellamy AND £10m would I change my mind?
