So ... this morning United wanted Cavani but are now favourites to sign Benteke??? Sounds like someone at Villa is trying to hurry Liverpool along.

United selling Valdes.
Obviously it was all in the timing but gutted a little as he would have been superb as a second keeper

We've met Benteke's release clause.

Probably Ł7 million too much, but he's Pele compared to Carroll, and we can't moan after what we got for Sterling.

Someone who'll actually be in the box to finish off what we create.

I was quite surprised when I saw Benteke's goal ratio stats - 1 goal every 2 games for the last 3 seasons.

There was also an interesting discussion on the radio, on my drive home, as to whether Hernandez would actually be a better fit?

Other fans dont seem to realise how good Benteke is it seems.

Most Villa fans think he is far too good for Kop and should be aiming higher, i/e if Chelsea signed him he would easily be another Drogba there.

Brenda will have to tweak the way you play a little, but if a success he'll easily get you top 4 football.

Someone 'leaking' that Utd were apparently interested seemed to have worked as well (they're not).

liverpool might be able to score from a cross now, 44 goals from 88 games is good enough

he will be a great addition

People have the impression he's just a physical battering ram who only thrives from crosses. Yet he's taken us apart with balls direct to feet, outside the box. He's quicker than people think he is.

Benteke is a great player and worth closer to 49m.
