Sky Sports are claiming that Manchester City have bid for James Milner.
Not sure if this is accurate or just them putting 2+2 together. Time will tell as they say that no response from Villa has been made to the bid as yet.
Sky reckon that Man City are willing to pay around £20million for the 24-year-old England midfielder.
Ah right, now I know the response from Villa…. Bugger off!
We quoted Randy Lerner on the Milner ‘issue’ last week but just to remind you…
‘I’m not worried about losing James Milner. I think James will play for Aston Villa and should play for Aston Villa. I’m not dismissive of the realities that a player that has received the attention and acclaim of James is going to spark discussion and debate about a move and so on. The answer is ‘No’, I don’t worry about him leaving because he is wanted at this club.’
The young pfa player of the year for £20m? That is a reduction of £4m on yesterday’s press quoted price for a start! Has he really lost that much form over night!?
Our latest poll asks what you’d sell him for, bearing in mind every player has their price, just look at Manchester United and the Ronaldo transfer.
