Aston Villa Manager O’Neil Calls Wenger’s Interest in Gareth Barry ‘Strange’, ‘Bizarre’

Arsene Wenger’s interest to sign Gareth Barry from Aston Villa has taken aback the Villa boss Martin O’Neil who terms Wenger’s surprise comment on Barry a ‘bizarre’. Wenger recently expressed that he was interested to sign Gareth Barry in summer. Barry has been linked with a possible move to Liverpool all the summer, but Liverpool could not match the amount Barry is valued at Villa.

Signing a centre midfielder has been a priority for Arsenal in the summer transfer window following the departures of midfielders Flamini, Gilberto and Hleb this summer. Wenger has also been tracking Liverpool’s Xabi Alonso. However, Martin O’Neil confirmed that he had no talks with Wenger over Barry’s deal. Now, let us see if Arsene Wenger really makes a bid for Gareth Barry before the transfer deadline gets closed.
