Liverpool In For Benni… Apparently

Liverpool In For Benni… Apparently

The latest transfer gossip is linking Blackburn Rovers forward Benni McCarthy with a summer move to Liverpool.

Rumour is claiming, that with Liverpool looking to strengthen their striking options, for the second summer running we will lose a star striker to them, having done so last summer when Craig Bellamy made the short journey to Merseyside.

After a quality debut season fears have grown that Benni could be tempted away, but despite his comments recently that he dreams of playing for Manchester United it is widely believed that a move to one of the big four Premiership sides is unlikely to happen, so as good a season as Benni has had a move to Liverpool, despite the millions they have come across is unlikely.

Do you believe Benni will still be at Ewood Park next season? Personally I'm still not sure, but I certainly hope so.

I'm still unsure as to whether or not Benni McGoalmachine will be at Rovers next season (still more due to what happened with Bellers last summer than anything else I think) but I'm still hopeful. But a move to Man United or Liverpool is not too likely for me, but you never know?!?!

I don't think Benny will come to Liverpool this summer. Rafa has his eye on either Villa or Eto.

Liverpool are linked to everyone and their granny at the moment. We cant buy them all.

I'm sure rafa will have a very good go at buying them all dodger! In all seriousness though I'm with you though JohnDoe, can't see him going to Liverpool, but not sure I can see Villa or Eto'o goingeither!?!?

There is as much chance as eto going as Benni. They have a cat in hells chance of bagging Villa as I think him and Torres are the 2 big names on the move to the big guns this coming summer. If Benni does go, i sure hope that we dont have a minimum valuation in his contract, therefore screwing us over with the price the way Liverpool did with Bellers, he was worth more than he went for and the only reason they came in for him was he was available for a very attractive price.

I could see Villa and Eto'o moving on, just not to Liverpool! You would HOPE that we've learned a lesson and AT LEAST raised the release trigger clause put in our deals. They put ridiculous amounts to them in Spain and other parts of Europe so why don't we do the same here!?!?

I think we'll be better positioned in this one - I have a theory that we only signed Bellamy as a result of allowing such a conditional clause in his contract - If we hadn't have agreed to "Small fee for Champions league club" then he would have gone somewhere that would have agreed to it. Benni is a different kettle of fish - He wanted to play here, and believes that he is part of something making a greater good, as opposed to being convinced that he is dragging the entire club along with him. As for a summer move to Liverpool, i'd quite happily put an incredibly large sum of money on that not happening.

That's a very good, and very logical theory you have there Head Rover Heels. I like to think in logical but it isn't something I'd thought of, wish I had :) I'd also put money on Benni NOT going to Liverpool, but WOULDN'T put money on him not leaving at all. I hope I'm wrong, I'm just worried. My fears will probably come to nothing...I HOPE!

Unfortunately, i agree with you on that HDM - Although i don't think he'll go anywhere without it being a silly offer, in which case i have every faith that Sparky will just find another 2M bargain for us to make a few million out of next year. Can't see it happening, but not as confident when we bring in other clubs around the world (Besides, we still have Derbyshire - He's definately going nowhere ;-) )

its about the time when all of Rovers players are going to be linked with other clubs - Pederson with Spurs, Benni with Liverpool, Bently with Utd, im getting bugged by all this. U have to say that we've heard it all b4 and Rovers may be seen as a selling club but surley they must see that Hughes is putting together a very good team. Liverpool have all this new money now so i think u'll see bigger named players, no offense to Benni, although if this doesnt happen then Rafa may see him as a cut price option, something like Bellemy last yr. As for the others, maybe Pederson mite go to Spurs but WHY?? cause they need a left winger? but over all they are not that far in front of Rovers, only the fact that they can spend £10m one one player, though that was a great buy. Should any of Rovers players go then I hope they ask for silly money so we can replace them with quality.
