Paul Merson believes former Arsenal and Villa playmaker Ross Barkley has the potential to embarrass Chelsea manager Frank Lampard by letting him leave on a season-long loan deal, which would have been an excellent move for England’s Premier League side Aston Villa. “I can’t quite believe it, if I’m honest. How barkley doesn?t get in the Chelsea team beats me,” added Paul. Notably, Burnley signed for 16 million from Real Madrid last summer. Paul said: “Chelsea”.
Rs have missed a trick in letting him go on loan. I’m shocked they’ve let it happen. But it’s another brilliant signing by Villa. Villa will be looking to strengthen their squad for the upcoming Champions League campaign against Manolo Higuain.
