Reports just in are suggesting that Aston Villa’s top scorer Milan Baros is a target for Monaco.

Reports in France suggest they will put a bid of around £8million in for the former Liverpool striker who cost Villa £6.5million last season.

David O’Leary looks set to have to offload the striker who, despite injuries and a team set up to hoof the ball forward, managed to score one goal every other game last season.

There is a get out clause in his contract, rumoured to be between £15-18million but it seems he will be sold for far less to cover up the mess Doug Ellis has made of the finances at Villa yet again.

  • I will be so p&&sed off when he goes. Quality player, we should be building the squad around people like this.

  • yep i agree you need to keep your best players. He will be great for you next season.

  • I wouldn’t mind him going if it is for the amount specified in the get out clause as we have some good talent coming through (as long as Angel stays – even if not scoring, he can teach the young lads alot) and we could buy 3-4 decent players for that kind

  • Andy Johnson £8.5m Top scorer in Euro 2004 £8m makes sense doesn’t it. £10m minimum, and I think he should be kept anyway, as he could be the man to push us to the staggering heights of mid table

  • never really felt comfortable about baros…hes never realy given the impression that he is happy at villa even when he if he knows the world cups around the corner,sign for a team befourhand that will definatly give first team appearances then

  • Very sad times when perhaps your only true class act has to be sold to finance purchases, due to severe mis-management of the financial side of the club.

  • If Doug plays it properly we could get 18m for him. That would be a great deal for us. Probably the first player that we’ve sold at a profit in years.
