The Mail are reporting that Rafael Benitez is still desperate to complete a deal for Aston Villa captain Gareth Barry, despite him being cup-tied for the group stage of this season’s Champions League.

Speculation over the weekend was rife that the Spaniard was considering his position at Anfield after disagreements over the move for Barry. Benitez is keen to add Barry to his squad, but Rick Parry has queried whether the 27 year old is worth the £18m asking price. But the Spaniard moved quickly to dismiss such rumours.

He said: “My commitment is 100% – with the fans, with the players and with the
club in general. I say 100 times my family is happy here – we want to win
trophies at this club because it is a massive club.”

He added: “I will not talk about any player – but in April I was talking about

“We tried to do things in confidentiality, but sometimes you cannot and you
need to explain before the end of the transfer window. If the manager has an
idea and it is not a question of money, then we have to make the right decisions
in terms of whom we bring in. That has to be the decision of the manager.”

The longest running saga of the Summer transfer window is set to rumble on and could go the length to August 31st when the window closes.
