Liverpool target Barry looking for a speedy resolution

The Gareth Barry Transfer Saga, as it shall henceforth be known, has been stretched to ridiculous lengths over the past two months and a bit. Now, even the player seems to have tired of reading the same story in the newspaper day after day.

According to The Times, Gareth Barry will shut the door on his possible move to Liverpool if the deal will not be concluded by the start of the Premier League campaign – next Saturday.

The whole transfer saga started after Aston Villa set an asking price for their captain – £18 million, non-negotiable – which Liverpool were unwilling to meet. Note: unwilling, not unable, since they signed Robbie Keane from Tottenham for an initial £19 million.

Now Barry could face the daunting prospect of continuing his career at his boyhood club Aston Villa. Despite having been welcomed back into the team by Martin O’Neill, some Aston Villa fans have been disappointed by their captain’s actions over the past two months.

Actually, LFC has better players than him and should not worry about him.

My opinion and disregard to some short minded liverpool fans still dreaming about villa,silva,querasma, carry on dreaming. We will not lift the title for another 20 years. And we know that. Look at Aston Villa, they are an example, they are building the team amongst british young player i.e luke young and shorey bought yesterday. There are more british player in there team… Read more »

Simple solution Mr. Barry… ask in writing for your release and then the price can go down 3 million and all the wait will end.
