BREAKING: Christian Benteke signs new four-year contract with Aston Villa.

WTF?????

Another Rooney?

Fucker was so adamant on leaving to play more competitive, and then decides to stay.....

Really surprised the last time this guy was mentioned was July 2013! He is without question the most Drogba-like striker out there. If the rumours are true and we're in for him at a price of £30m I'd be over the moon. Costa, Benteke and Remy with Bamford coming through would be brilliant.

Benteke is amazing, I watch him quite a bit because I'm Birmingham based and he's excellent when he's in the mood. Would love to sign him. If Villa go down we have to snap him up.

Even if Villa don't go down I would say snatch him up. He's outgrown that team and needs a new challenge. I would loan them Bamford and perhaps another of our players like Kalas and sign Benteke for 30m

He's young, proven and quality. He would be great in our Side tbh. Superb target point with technique, a nose for goals ánd an aereal threat. Plus he really gets along with Eden and Tibo. I'd applaud but i might be a bit biased.

I keep forgetting that. He looks like he's well in his thirties! :lol:

It's funny reading through the old posts on Benteke. Does have some brain dead moments but when you look at his goals and highlights his first touch especially with his back to the goal is excellent and he's much more than a fox in the box. To imagine that he's been able to rack up 41 goals in 86 PL appearances while at Villa mostly under Lambert is fairly astonishing.

Would love to have him but the real question is will being #2 striker be sufficient. I rate him just below Costa and I think he could be the #1 striker for most teams in the world.

Well, that's concerning.....

I always said he's better than Lukaku mainly because he has more to his game and actually knows how to hold up the ball and bully defenders. He would be a great second striker but £30m is way too much, he's been awful for a better part of a year (excluding these past few months).

like this one:

And he missed a similar chance a few games later as well if i'm not mistaken

To be fair he suffered an Achilles tear in April of 2014 and those take time not only to heal but also for the player to regain confidence and play without fear of re-injury.

Sherwood has done a number on him, but he does tend to be a passenger when it's not his day & i'm not sure how much patience Mourinho would have with him..

Not good enough for Chelsea, another Lukaku/Lambert...etc players who are good for midtable sides but no where near good enough for one of the best team in the world. I mean didn't earlier this season he goes on a 10-15 matches goalless run or something under Lambert, this means he is more of a confident player and if he comes he will start on the bench, he will lose it and eventually become a Salah at ST.

Basically his best bet is maybe Liverpool as any team above that is a level too high for him. Well this fact stands until he bangs in 30 goals next season :P
