Aston Villa have been told to pay up if they want to sign Mbark Boussoufa from Belgian club Anderlecht. The 25-year-old Morocco midfielder is reported to have been lined up as a potential replacement for James Milner at Villa Park. Manchester City and Chelsea are both interest in signing the England international this summer. However, with Villa possibly banking more than £25million from the potential sale of Milner, Anderlecht are looking to be compensated fully for last season's Belgian player of the year Boussoufa. "Boussoufa can go if a team offers what we want," revealed general manager Herman Van Holsbeeck. "He was a key player and therefore he can only go if a club does what we ask. "We will not make concessions."
