Milner Saga: O`Neill Admits Jimmy`s City Wish?

Milner Saga: O`Neill Admits Jimmy`s City Wish?

Reports are coming out that Martin O`Neill has apparently admitted that James Milner wants to leave Aston Villa for Eastlands.

Whilst there are no concrete quotes from either the player himself, or the manager, a number of news sources are claiming that the Aston Villa. The 24-year old midfielder had a fantastic season in the middle of the park and now it appears that Roberto Mancini will finally get his man, for a price!

Villa have previously rejected a £20million bid for the England International, and it now appears sadly that it is a case of when, and how much, rather than if, Milner is to leave Birmingham.

Bye James, and thanks for at least two seasons of loyalty.

He did it first to Newcastle and now us. He clearly sees no value in a contract!

Get rid, hes not bigger than the club and hes not worth what city will pay. As long as the funds are spent well, this could be a good deal for Villa

murph - I'm not sure anybody's saying that he's crap, just that he's a bit of a disloyal little ****.

I'd take £25m for him.

I genuinely believe that we can replace him quite comfortably with many available central midfield players. I do not believe that the central position really suits his game 100% and will take at least 2 years to develop that position. There are many very good central midfielders who can come in and carry out a much better central role for us with 10 years experience playing in that position. This move may actually make Aston Villa stronger as a team and squad (available funds).

Not sure how much money we might have had available, but if we can milk Citeh for 25 Million, we can really do some shopping!! Trouble is, MON is not renowned for being a good shopper!!
