The price for Villa

£120 million according to this report in The Telegraph.

I know since the takeover we are armed with an unlimited pot of gold which effectively renders transfer fees irrelevant, but if we were to spend this amount to land Villa we would be more than doubling the previous record transfer fee.

As good a player as Villa is, is paying this type of fee to land him (or any player for that matter) really something that we want to see?
