Everton to miss out on Barry deal

Everton to miss out on Barry deal

It would appear that not only was talk that Everton had won the chase for Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry premature, we could miss out entirely.

The 33-year-old enjoyed a season-long loan deal at Everton from Manchester City last season and was an ever present in Roberto Martinez's side, missing just three games all season and two of those were the games at the Etihad Stadium in October and the final game of the season at Goodison Park against his parent club.

Roberto Martinez has been pretty open in his stance that he wanted to make the deal permanent, but that didn't stop rumours circulating linking him with West Ham United and Manchester City's Major League Soccer franchise New York City.

According to past reports in the in the British media, Barry had agreed to sign a three-year-deal, but that report was later proved premature with Everton gaffer Roberto Martinez revealing that he was yet to sit down with Barry to talk details.

Now it transpires that the deal could be close to collapse.

Despite Barry being out-of-contract with Manchester City, Everton will have to pay Manchester City a fee due to a clause in his season-long loan deal last season.

According to the Manchester Evening News payment works as follows: 'City will get £1million if Barry signs for one year, £1.5million if he signs for two, and £2million for three years.'

Everton have tried to renegotiate the above clause, but with Manchester City refusing to budge the Mirror have reported that 'West Ham are offering the best financial package, which could see the 33-year-old switch to Upton Park.'
