Baros agent denies Bremen link

"It is nonsense from the German press" Paska scoffed, in his daily meeting with Sky Sports. “Milan has not been angered by the never-ending speculation. I filter the offers and we discuss the serious ones,” he explained, before turning on his heels, picking up his drum and resuming his market stall cry of 'MI-LAN BAROS, CHECK OUT WITH THE CZECH. PART-EXCHANGE PREFERRED'. His rebuff came after German tabloid Bild reported Bremen may make a move, signing the Aston Villa striker as a replacement for Miroslav Klose, who wants to move abroad in the summer.

Bremen are one of around ten clubs linked with the 26-year-old who has scored just once this season, a list that includes Lyon, Chelsea and Real Sociedad. Martin O'Neill is understood to be ready to allow Baros, who cost Villa £7m when he moved from Liverpool 18 months ago, to leave if the price is right.
