Exclusive – Cash in on Liverpool target, says former Aston Villa star

first_imgFormer Aston Villa star Alan McInally has told the club to cash in on Liverpool target Christian Benteke and use the money to fund a squad overhaul.The Belgian striker has been a big hit at Villa Park, where he has scored 42 goals in 88 Premier League games, but is now keen on a move to bigger club.And McInally reckons if the Reds bid enough for the forward then the powers that be should allow him to leave and let manager Tim Sherwood splash the cash this summer.“I don’t think he wants to stay and it’s really difficult to make him stay,” he told the Sports Bar.“If someone is going to give you £30million for him, I think you let him go. You pat him on the back, wish him good luck.“Hopefully Tim Sherwood will get the lions’ share of the fund from the transfer to try and improve the squad.last_img
