It’s dead easy, this one.
Basically Christian Benteke has been linked to Spurs again, on the back of his stunning overhead kick and typical bruising type header, all within 2 minutes against Norwich;
Apparently, Levy has admitted he got it wrong, in not busting his balls to make sure he signed the “Beast” and views his signing of Soldado as a mistake. So now, he’s going to make a concerted effort.
What do you think about this one?
I personally don’t see Spurs being his destination, as although he hasn’t set the world on fire this season, I believe he’s destined for a better stage.
He’s just that good, when you consider he’s only 23 and I actually think Lambert calls it right for once, when he says the player could be world class.
Knowing the Villa though, we’ll probably flog him cheap (and yes, Spurs makes sense at £20+ mill) and then watch as he’s then sold on for a massive profit.
I really don’t trust the club to get the best deal, in other words.
And although Benteke is supposed to have said he doesn’t know anything about any deal, I very much suspect he does, in reality.
We pay piss-poor wages, after all, in the scheme of things re the Premier League.
And why would he want to stay, when you consider that we don’t give him the service he would get at a top club?
I’ll be absolutely gutted if he goes.
And dead worried for our future.
