Tom Cleverley (2014-15)

Recommended Posts

Trying to get my head around this. Available on a free end of the season we have him on loan till the end of the season, yet there are rumours we are interested in signing him for 7.5 million in January plus his what 50-60k a week wages, wtf??. Firstly how does he warrant that price tag? when Sissoko at Newcastle cost 1.8 million in similar circumstances and why would Lerner fork out this kind of money if he is looking to sell the club?, lets just see if there is an improvement in his perfromances for the remainder of the season and take it from there. Come end of season when he is available on a free then look at the options. This will show how much he wants to play for the club.

At the moment all he is doing is making up the numbers. Cleverleys displays are either average or awful.

Certain elemants of truth. I cannot see how Man United warrent 7.5 million, definitely the Man United added bonuses as someone said. But he is definitely worth paying for in January. Avoids the prospect of him impressing in the second half of the season and Villa losing out on him. Delph staying or going may be a big factor

Valid point in potentially losing out on him in the summer if he does improve and has an impressive second half to the season that is a huge (if) though. But surely come end of the season if he has performed well he should be thinking that Aston Villa is the club he wants to play for and nobody else as this is the club that could potentially revitalise his career and give him regular football. He should be begging to sign for us, be a good test of his character.

Has been playing well and it is a hard choice to go with but 7.5m is a lot considering his contracts with Utd is running out!?

Does he want to stay is another question to ask!

Cleverley is not worth the money and his performances have been average imo. I would rather we use the money to buy someone else. Cleverley I feel will wind down his contract at Man U and leave on a free. He is a upgrade on Westwood no doubt but sanchez is capable. Buy the attacking midfielder we need villa it is so obvious we need one. Cleverley hasn't done enough for me to see us paying that much for him.I honestly believe he wanted to go to everton and that is where he will end up.

I was ready to lynch him after QPR and his statue like performance, but he has improved and been a decent player, 7m?? is that a confirmed figure?

I think the problem is Everton are also keen on him and if we don't sign him in January then it's likely Everton will do in June.

£7 million is nothing in this day and age. Not convinced about Cleverley but would pay that for him. Whether he will commit to Villa is another story.

I'm undecided on him - maybe Vlaar will give us room to negotiate a better price .

If Delph was staying I'd be nonplussed but if we lose Delph then I think cleverly may be a reasonable option .

As we have an option to buy in January we may need to use it to secure him or risk Everton pouncing.

Cleverley offers us absolutely nothing we already have at the club and isn't the same type of player as Delph though Viva. I honestly can't see why people would worry about Everton coming in for him and with his performances for us to date I'm not sure Everton would want him now.

He has crap set piece delivery, no killer pass in him, not enough physicality to be a DM or box to box midfielder and doesn't score enough goals so why would we want him?

Mate of mine who is a Man U fan can't believe that we would want to pay anything for him not only due to his lack of ability but also he is available on a free at the end of the season and personally, even on a free I still wouldn't take him as he just wouldn't justify the wages he would want.

It would be another Reo-Coker purchase and that is enough blaspheming.
