Shock horror. Mark Hughes linked with a big money move!
Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry has jumped to the top of Manchester City boss Mark Hughes’ summer shopping list.
Sparky has already handed next season’s transfer targets to his Eastlands bosses, says The Sun.
And the City chief wants to offer Aston Villa £6million plus striker Dean Sturridge and midfielder Michael Johnson in return for England star Barry. (tribalfootball.com)
Gareth Barry is a good player at his peak and it appears that Liverpool may well join Mark Hughes in the race for the Villa man’s signature in the summer, especially if the midlands club misses out on the Champions League. Personally if i were Mark Hughes i would look at doing a straight cash deal for the England international as both Sturridge and Johnson are very promising youngsters who could do very well for the Eastlands outfit. Who do City fans think the club will bring in during the summer? Can the club lift the UEFA Cup and just how far are the club from realistic challenger to the top four monopoly?
