Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is reportedly eyeing up a £6 million bid for Wigan Athletic midfield man Wilson Palacios but it will take a lot more than that for Latics to part with their Honduran superstar.
Latics boss Steve Bruce thinks Palacios will go all the way and eventual find himself at one of Europes top clubs, but not just yet and definitely not on the cheap.
'We are always going to be seen as little unfashionable Wigan but I know I have some really good players'
'We have done very well to tie up some of our best players to long-term deals, especially Wilson Palacios. Wilson has the ability to go to the top."
'Last season he was linked with Manchester United - I don't know if there was interest, but it was speculated on because of my past links."
'We worked hard to tie him down and sign a new contract."
'He knows this year is a big one for him and it is going to be hard."
'But he wanted to stay here and it would take an amazing offer to get him off us bearing in mind some of the fees being paid out for some players at the moment.'
