Liverpool to make yet another Barry bid

According to BBC, Liverpool have already had two bids for Aston Villa captain, Gareth Barry, turned down. However that will not stop them from making a third bid. Rafa Benitez is determined to get his man after it emerged today that Juventus are getting closer and closer to completing a deal for Xabi Alonso.

However with reports suggesting that Aston Villa is holding out for an £18 million offer for their star player – or one of their star players. The BBC reckons that the price tag stapled on Barry’s head might be stretched too much on the long side for Liverpool’s liking and that could prevent him from completing a dream move.

Although it is unclear what would be more delightful for a player than to play for his childhood club, it seems that Gareth Barry wants out of Aston Villa, and Martin O’Neill has confirmed those rumours.

“It might be difficult. He said he would fancy going to Liverpool and that’s a big setback.” said O’Neill to the BBC.

At this rate it is hard to see how any of the mid-table clubs will ever be able to challenge for the top spots in the English Premier League. It seems that every time a bright player makes his mark at mid-table club like Everton or Aston Villa, one of the ‘big four’ is out to get him. Surely the FA, or the Premier League can do something about this.

Chelsea to sign Deco?
Arsenal to lose out on Nasri?
