Getting Villa Would Be Cheeky But It Won't Happen

Getting Villa Would Be Cheeky But It Won't Happen

It would be quite a coup if, as reports suggest, we put in a bid for David Villa and sign the Valencia striker. It could be regarded as a certain revenge on Real Madrid for prising away Ronaldo albeit also paying an extraordinary amount of money.

However, it's not going to happen. The player has set his sights on Madrid as he is keen to stay in Spain and indeed, some reports suggest that he's already agreed a deal with Florentino Perez. The move hinges on small differences, all of financial nature, between Valencia and Real Madrid and I daresay that Perez will smooth these problems.

He is small and we would have literally no aerial presence beyond vidic and rio if we signed him - but he is one hell of a player. Personally, I love the idea of playing a 4-2-3-1 next season with carrick, senna, young, rooney, silva and villa as the front six - it would be a perfect blend of spanish and english styles but in truth senna is probably to old, young is too expensive and silva and villa both prefer to got to madrid, barca or stay at valencia than come to england - even then they'd probably join the spanish colony of Anfield.

VIlla is not coming to England.

Tuscan young may be expensive but he is proven and established in england with still plenty of room for improvement which is only good news as he is only going to get better.My friend,remember Carrick,pretty expensive but look at what we have gone on to achieve with him in the team,he was just the person we required plus english players r always a bit expensive.

"Proven" and "Established"?! Arent you worried about the way Young disappeared at the fag end of the season? Seriously!

Don't get me wrong, I'd love us to sign Young, but I think aston villa will be looking for more than £30M because they have no reason to sell. He's a really good player and potentially excellent, but I think at that price he is a risk. JT, I personally am not worried about his end of season form as his whole team were bad. Wingers and strikers are always dependant on the performances on their team mates winning the ball and getting it to them, which from what I saw, villa weren't doing well enough.

JT,if u notice the villa squad was one of the thinest in the season as a result he had worne out,thats why u should have a big squad because it can keep your big players fresh for the business end of the season.

Burnout? Yep, that may have been a reason..
