Do you know, I was just thinking we`ve not had enough Christian Benteke to leave in January articles yet and along one comes!
The Daily Star have the 'exclusive` that Spurs are still wanting Benteke and will be prepared to up their offer from the summer of £20million (which I am told was never made?!) to £28m
Ok, add another £12million to that and hopefully we can do business.
In 'doing business` I mean say 'thanks for the interest and the respect to bid a decent amount. NO DEAL!
Lets be honest, he might only be here for a couple of seasons BUT Villa simply cannot sell him (or indeed Brad Guzan following the rumour Arsenal want him) in January. It would make no sense at all.
I can understand the interest from any club, this lad is going to be world class no doubt!
The report says Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas (who bizarrely kept putting a towel around his legs whilst sitting at Villa Park last weekend!) is set to return in January.
Is four times the original fee a good deal? Not for us fans. Is it for Randy Lerner? Only he knows that but just look at the difference in confidence of Villa on Sunday v Spurs when Benteke came on. No offense to our other strikers but............
The report also says Liverpool are interested but only if Luis Suarez leaves.
Bizarrely Arsenal are also 'monitoring` but don`t know whether he would fit their style of play?!
I honestly can`t see us selling anyone in January, however, you just never can tell in football can you!? He is only a few months into a new four year deal though.
