Benitez ponders dropping Barry for Petrov

Benitez ponders dropping Barry for Petrovthumbnail

The uncertainty of Manchester City boss Sven Goran-Errikson’s future and the newspaper reports that Shinawatra will put his whole side up for sale could attract Rafael Benitez’s eye.

Martin Petrov who constantly troubled Liverpool with his pace in the game at Eastlands earlier in the year has attracted Rafa Benitez’s eye with scouts sent to watch him and should Gareth Barry agree a £75,000 new contract with Aston Villa, the Spaniard will make a bid for the Bulgarian.

Having Stewart Downing also on the possible left-wing signings, the paciest is the Bulgarian. It remains to be seen however if the ludicrous offer of £10m plus Carson, Riise and Crouch will be increased to speculated Newspaper fees of £15m plus Carson and Crouch with £4m of Riise’s sale to Newcastle.

Jermaine Pennant, Steve Finnan and Sebastien Leto could leave after losing their places in the side. Benitez could try to fund a move for Barry by offloading these 3 but should Barry decide to stay in the Midlands, a move for Petrov who is unhappy at the certainty seems likely.
