Will Liverpool really step up their bid for Barry when it looks as though they will only be getting in the region of £15 for Xabi Alonso? It’s clear that both Gerrard and Benitez want Gareth at the club, but it seems as though Martin O’Neill does not want to let his captain go easily. Perhaps the whole reason this has been dragged out so long is that Aston Villa’s hierarchy are still not happy about the price tag Liverpool put on young stopper Scott Carson.
Do Liverpool fans think that £20m is too much for the 27-year-old?
