Liverpool to splash £50 million on La Liga trio and Barry

Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has today told the Anfield board that he wants £50 million to sign Dani Alves, David Villa, David Silva and Gareth Barry in order to challenge for the title next season. All four players have been linked with a move to Liverpool before and now Benitez wants to bring the quartet to the club.

Valencia's David Villa and David Silva have both been told they can leave the club due to bad debts at the Mestalla. Both players are believed to be interested in moves to the Premier League. Meanwhile Dani Alves has also been linked with England, but he was said to be close to joining Barcelona last week so Benitez may not get his man their.

Aston Villa captain Gareth Barry has been linked with Liverpool for weeks now as Villa boss Martin O'Neill continues to reject bids from the Reds. Barry has admitted he would love to play for the Merseyside club next season but wheter or not Villa let him go is another question. I personally feel all four players would be terrific acquisitions to Liverpool's squad and give them a real chance of challenging next season for major honours.
