Rafa in for Young

Rafa the Gaffa is ready spend large again on Aston Villa winger Ashley Young. The sum for this transfer to go through will be 20 million pounds.
But this figure will not keep Rafa from trying to sign the Villa star, for the prospect of playing Champions League football might be too much for Young to stay at Villa Park, especially that this season will be the most important one for England's World Cup hopefuls.

Benitez tore what left of his hair out when these two clubs battled it out on the money front for Gareth Barry last year, a fight which Villa won but only because the Anfield board refused to pay the asking price of 18 million pounds.
Benitez will have the funds this time around even though O'Neill has put a 30 million pound price tag on Young, but won't get any transfer funds from the sale of Alonso, as the Spaniard is ready to stay at Anfield.

It doesn't matter who Rafa buys, or how much he spends, he always buys the wrong players, then when they don't perform like the way he wants them to, he puts them on the bench or sells them within a season or two.
If you were Liverpool manager right now, who would you buy?
