Aston Villa have today confirmed that England International Gareth Barry is having talks with City about a possible move Eastlands.
I am not surprised that we or any team for that matter would try and sign Gareth Barry but for him to go as far as talking to us is a little baffling to me. Barry plays in a wonderful team at the moment with a great manager and they will be in Europe next season, so why would coming to City interest him?
There is really only a few reasons he would want to join us, he can see our potential, he thinks he will get to play along side great players or he is being offered huge money. Obviously most people will say it is for money and that could be the case, saying that I am not sure if Barry himself would leave his beloved Villa for a bit of extra cash. I don't care how much we pay him if he signs as long as he is winning football matches for us.
Now for the flip side will City fans be happy if we were to sign Barry? There isn't any doubts about his ability he is a good footballer and as for when he plays for England I am a huge fan and he would make my first eleven every time. I am just not sure if I like his style of play, that would be being picky though he is a damn good player and I say a good signing if it were to go through.
What do you think?
