Bentley Will Cost You £17 Million

Bentley Will Cost You £17 Million

The man who can't keep quiet and current Blackburn Rovers winger David Bentley has been told he can leave Ewood Park but the likes of Spurs and Aston Villa have been told that the price is £17 million to pay, this is according to reports.

Several big clubs and Spurs are all interested in acquiring the services of Bentley. They have now been given the figure they must pay to get him. We're about to find out who is serious.

The paper claims that Spurs have already made an offer of cash plus players but manager Paul Ince is not interested in Paul Robinson, Anthony Gardner or Darren Bent in exchange.

Liverpool are believed to have tried Jermaine Pennant as bait to get the England star but again have proved unsuccessful.

Rovers are wanting the cash to spend as they desire and who can blame us... we hold all the cards.

LOL @ Spudsbhoy, get a life you spotty moron! School out already? Fair price for an England International in the current transfer climate I feel, surprised we haven't gone to the 20 million to see who really is desperate for him

Bentley - a few games for England with one good season behind him and Modric, world class and regular international. Both around £17 million. Give me a break.

Ince is using blackburn as a stepping stone to manage inter milan, now he's trying to block bentley from doing the same thing trying to price him out of a move. £15 mill plus add-ons if we win the uefa cup, and/or qualify for champs league. With arsenal falling apart and liverpool after our best players it may happen!

I don't blame Rovers for naming an inflated price because the player is under contract and Blackburn don't want to sell. Very similar situation with Gareth Barry at Villa. IMO Barry is at present a better player than Bentley BUT Bentley is quite a few years younger.I don't think the 'top four' will pay that much for Bentley, because apparently, Van der Vart is available at £15m. VdV would not move to anyone outside the top four, so I reckon Villa, Newcastle, Tottenham, Everton and possibily Man City would be keen on signing Bentley. IF MON is seriously interested I think Villa should offer Blackburn what they want straight away as it will effectively only be a straight swop financially for Barry. Let's see then how serious the other clubs are. I would like him on the right side of Villa's midfield with Ashley Young on the left. good balance.

I find it funny how you think you hold the cards - I'm not starting a row or having a dig... just a conversation, I like Blackburn - but he's stated he wants to leave, you NEED the money so Ince can start building a team... This is a £17m ONO deal.... if you get offered £15m you will try to push it up to £17m, why not, it's negotiating... but actually Spurs hold the cards here... Liverpool won't pay that much for him, they don't need him as much as we do and they can atract a cheaper Eurpean player to play there, so they will stick to their guns... Bentley is a Spurs fan who wants to leave Blackburn and move back to London and spurs want to sign him, you can pretty much guarantee he will be playing for us next season... if we only offer you £15m and tell you that's the final offer, you will eventually accept it, because like you say Ince NEEDS the money to spend... how long will you wait before cashing in, you need to look for a replacement as well as some players in other areas, not going to happen until you take the money... you don't actually hold any cards... all you hold is a contracted player... what does that mean these days?!?!
