Christian Benteke is scoring all the way to the bank

Published Add your comment

It is no surprise that after the effect that Tim Sherwood has had on the Aston Villa camp, Christian Benteke has finally found his shooting boots.

Unfortunately, this means that the likelihood of a transfer in the summer is on the cards for Villa's top goal scorer.

In latest press reports Sherwood has gone on record to say that although there is a lot of speculation now surrounding Benteke's future, most Premier League clubs would not be able to afford the Belgium international striker.

This could mean that Benteke could attract "top clubs" such as Real Madrid who has had the striker on their radar for quite a while.

Sherwood has issued a “hands off” warning to other clubs although this won’t dissuade them from putting in an offer.

Aston Villa currently sit in 14th position with three league games to go. They are not out of the water yet as the points tally is very tight at the bottom half of the table, while Sunderland who are 18th with 33 points battle to survive relegation.

If I was Sherwood I would not be asking for less than £60 million for Benteke. Which would be a coup as Villa only signed him for £7 million four and a half years ago.

All this talk will hopefully be brought to an end in the close season. Aston Villa and Christian Benteke have been through a lot over the past four years and that potentially could sway Benteke to stay at Villa Park.
