Everton to move for Manchester City ace

Gareth Barry (Manchester City)Everton are ready to launch a loan move for Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry, according to reports from Sky Sports.

The England international is believed to be surplus to requirements under new Sky Blues chief Manuel Pellegrini, who has significantly strengthened his squad over the summer months – with Brazilian ace Fernandinho a key purchase.

Toffees boss Robert Martinez is said to be keen to bring in midfield reinforcements before the transfer window closes, and is keen to take advantage of the 32-year-old’s situation.

City are keen to sell, but the Merseysiders are only looking at a temporary switch with a view to a full permanent move in the future.

Everton’s Marouane Fellaini’s future is also far from clear, and Martinez could use Barry as a replacement for the Belgian, who has been liked with a move to Manchester United.

The ex-Aston Villa man has been linked with a return to his former club, while Arsenal have also been mentioned as a potential destination.

Barry has made 175 appearance for City since his £12m move to the club in 2009, and was a key part of their Premier League winning side of 2011/12.

Could Gareth Barry be a success at Everton? Or are his best days behind him?
