It’s beginning, Ron Vlaar is linked with moves away from Villa Park. Vlaar has been called up and has featured in all 3 of Netherlands World Cup games. In each 3 games he has impressed and has been an absolute rock at the back. Now, we should be supporting Vlaar since he really is Villa’s best representative at this years World Cup. But, with Vlaar’s contract expiring next season and no really progress made towards extending his contract, I’m sure that some Villa fans (like myself) are beginning to worry that we might lose our captain and best defensive player.
QPR is the first team linked with Ron Vlaar, honestly QPR appear to be linked with anyone so I wouldn’t look too much into it. Besides, joining QPR would be a step down. The biggest fear could possibly be from Manchester United, Luis Van Gaal is a fan of Vlaar and he might be tempted to bring Vlaar to Manchester United. Other big teams may also want to swoop in for Vlaar.
More worryingly, Senedros doesn’t look like a good squad player. He really struggled against France when he played for Switzerland. Worse, most Fulham fans have said that Senderos was always their worst player. With Aston Villa’s current position, we can’t afford to lose Vlaar, just imagine if a replacement isn’t brought in. Okore partnered up with Senedros/Clark/Baker.
There have been reports that Vlaar doesn’t feel wanted at Villa after the club failed to offer him a new deal and has recently criticised Aston Villa’s drinking culture. I think he’s slowly becoming fed up, he knows that he is aging and may look into taking the opportunity to move to a ‘big’ club while his stock is high. If he does decide to stay at Villa, the club will have to offer him a massive pay increase.
