According to British media "Daily Telegraph", Aston Villa hopes to loan Chelsea midfielder Barkley, but they are unwilling to bear the latter's high salary.
The news pointed out that Villa coach Dean Smith hopes to strengthen the midfielder, while Blues player Barkley is on his wish list.
It is reported that Chelsea is not opposed to renting out Barkley, but the Blues hope that the other side will bear Barkley's salary in full.
Barkley's weekly salary reached 120,000 pounds, which is difficult for Aston Villa to accept.
If Aston Villa wants to successfully lease Barkley, then they need to conduct further negotiations with Chelsea. If progress cannot be made, Vera may seek loan Loftus-Cheek.
