Christian Benteke

Recommended Posts

I cannot see him signing a new deal whatever happens - if nobody signs him in the summer he will hold all the aces next year and surely go for much less or we'd risk losing him for nothing a year later .

I still feel he will be gone this summer, although fear it will drag on until late August .

Wise move for a buyer would be let villa his wages during the summer and get him match fit and then sign him in mid to late August - not ideal for us .

I think he will sign a new deal when the take over happens. He will be offered more money and it will be a no brainier for him as apart from media speculation no one has really showed interest in him.

he wants champions league football and will probably go in July

he has done his time here and extended or renewed his contract a couple of years ago

i thank him for his time at villa and wish him well where ever he goes

He may want all that but if no one comes in with 32.5 million then he isn't leaving. Do you honestly think he will turn down a more money contract if it looks like he will have to fulfil the remainder of his 2 year contract here ?

I think the clause will be matched by more than one club - just a waiting game - once it's triggered other interested parties will match it .

I for one think we'll be better off without IF we get 32 mill for him. We can get someone in with a better touch and is more consistent. Someone who also doesn't kick off every f**cking summer

The release clause was a shrewd piece of business only if somebody was smart enough to add the clause that if he wasn't gone by the end of July then he is going nowhere, otherwise we face the prospect of any interested clubs waiting us out in the hope of saving a few quid. Its no good banking £32.5m on deadline day and leaving ourselves without a striker.

Of course this is Villa so i doubt any such clause will exist.

My opinion has changed - my money is now firmly on Benteke going to Tottenham .

He tried to engineer a move there last time around and I think this time will get his wish - maybe at the expense of Harry Kane .

Levy has shown he thinks nothing of selling off Spurs assets at the right price .

If we do deal with Spurs I'd hope Sherwood can get some decent part exchanges in the deal and not be fobbed off with Levys cast off flops.

If we get townsend in return I'd actually be happy

Depending of course on what else we get - kaboul, Townsend, and £18m?

Probably a few spurs players Sherwood might fancy .

Personally I hope Benteke goes. We depend on him too much and that is not good considering it depends how he turns up on the day.

I would like us to buy another decent winger and Charlie Austin up front with Sinclair. I think TS is trying to build a British team at Villa. About time, we have some great talent in the UK and it is being smothered by foreign imports.

Make it 23 plus them and you've got yourself a deal

If Benteke goes then I think we will need to get more than one striker in to replace him. As Perth Villan says we have depended too much on him for goals. If we get one decent striker in to replace him all that will happen is that we'll depend on that guy. Gabby has become an irregular scorer these days and indications are that both Kozak and Weimann's futures lie elsewhere.

Was never a fan of players been makeweights in a deal, even less so since Ireland. If Townsend or Kaboul wanted to come here fine but sign them on theit own merits not just as part of a deal for Benteke.

Agree, you only have to look at the Stephen Ireland debarcle to see the out come.
