£34m versatile ace now happy to sign deal with Aston Villa for next season

Posted by

Although Aston Villa would’ve undoubtedly been disappointed with getting knocked out of the Europa Conference League at the semi-final stage, Unai Emery will understand that his squad need to get that result straight out of their system and focus on getting into the Champions League this season.

There’s a strong likelihood that the Villains will take that final spot unless they collapse in their final games and allow Tottenham Hotspur to get in through the back door.

Baena open to Villa switch says ex-scout

That would require the Lilywhites to win all of their remaining games too, as the points difference is such that anything less would hand the UCL spot to Villa regardless of their results.

With next season already in mind, Villa, as with many other clubs, will be looking around for new talent, and one player that’s been linked is Villarreal’s Alex Baena.

According to Villa News, ex-club scout, Bryan King, believes there’s a very good chance that the £34m-rated player will join the Midlands-based outfit.

“Emery’s connection to Baena could help Aston Villa immensely,” he was quoted as saying.

“Footballers are always eternally grateful to the manager who brings them into the game by handing them their debut.

“Baena would be more than happy as long as the fee is met to join up with a former manager. Villa have always looked at these top players, but it is now much easier for the club to sign them.”

  1. We’ve all see lately that our squad is too small we definitely need reinforcements and that included a quality striker Watkins is not up to playing 60 games next season, this is just a personal thing but I think Diaby should go he’s been very disappointing and offers little, if we get Champions league we will need top players and he’s not one

    1. We said the same about Bailey and he has come good under Emery. He came from a different league and we all know the Premier League is brutal. Give the lad a chance, from what I have seen for a first season I the premier league, and another season with Emery, I believe he will come good.

  2. Personally I would’ve loved us to win the cup, europa cup next season would have been fine, Emary would’ve had the chance to build us up some more, he could’ve won it and we’d have matured and flourished without the glare of iur first season in CL and probably being a bit underdeveloped…

    But now, as we’re out of the cup, if we don’t get 4th, we’ll be called bottlers etc etc, I’d hate the boys and UE to get that label from the media…

    1. Experiance will only develop the players in the long run. I don’t think we are ready to compete in the Champions League, but 12 months ago these same players were fighting relegation. In my view, we are ahead of schedule, we may go out in the group stages of the champions league but by being in the champions league we will get the money for Emery and Co to accelerate our development.
