The Mirror are reporting that Rafael Benitez’s bid to sign Gareth Barry from Aston Villa is doomed to failure.

The Spaniard is desperate to sign the England midfielder despite being told by the American owners that the £18m pricetag is too high. He is even reported to be willing to sell the likes of Andrei Voronin and Jermaine Pennant, but no bids have been received for either play so far.

Meanwhile, Metro.co.uk are reporting that the American owners are split regarding the deal. But without the support of each of the club’s owners, Benitez would find it hard to secure the full £18m required.
