41% Say Don't Sell James Milner At ANY Price

41% Say Don't Sell James Milner At ANY Price


So the press are having a field day linking James Milner to all and sundry at all sorts of prices, with one bid confirmed by Aston Villa from Manchester City.

The latest I saw was from a gossip site saying that Manchester United will bid £28million. IF Man Utd come in for him, I can't see him not wanting to move to be honest, he is the obvious 'replacement' for Paul Scholes who was their midfield master for many years obviously.

And that leads us nicely into the last poll which asked:

What would you sell James Milner for?

milner full back

41% said 'no price' although as a club and business, even the very biggest know that every player has a price. I would assume that the price it is worth selling him on at will be the managers decision.

22% said they'd sell him if £30m was bid, another 22% only if £40m was bid.

That left 8% willing to sell him for a popular press quoted figure of £24million and 7% were as good as saying get lost, as they said they'd only sell at £50m

Our latest poll asks which position do we need to get summer signings in for this transfer window?

Idiots. Now I love Milner as much as the next guy but if they were to offer £40m then I'd take that, reinvest in the team and have better quality throughout rather than just one player in the centre. It'd be a sad day if Jimmy left but we're in no position to turn that down.

Totally agree Jay. Citeh have money galore. LEt them sweat - other wise keep him - he's on a two year deal!

But there's another side to that coin. We could end up in the Gareth Barry situation where we're offered £18m now, he doesn't sign a new contract and then he leaves for £12m next year. Can't let him go for peanuts.

I don't think he will want to go anyway. He's finally found some sort of stability at a club, and I think he has his head screwed on right. Although as a "business" there will be a price we can't refuse, but it will have to be £40 or £50 million, he's not worth that much, but that's beside the point.

I cant see united bidding £28m for Milner. Chelsea and City need to add to their homegrown quota for next season so they could be tempted but I would think united would be looking to spend less on somebody better.

if you can get £25m you should take it as long as the cash will get re invested in players. £15m-£18m you could have jenas to replace milner and robbie keane as well and still have £7m-£10m left for another player

Chelsea don't need to add to their homegrown quota. We are not competing for Millner.

also with Barry, Viera, De Jong, M. Johnson and Adam Johnson (what a talent, believe he has ability to play central) there is a fight for positions

Question: If Milner stayed who would you partner him with. I would want Delph but due to injury id like to try Downing in centre with him and then give Albrighton his chance on wing with Ash
