Manchester United To Probe Valencia Over David Silva

The Red Devils are apparently plotting one lust hurrah in the summer market...

According to the News of the World, Manchester United have set their sights on Valencia's sought-after playmaker, David Silva.

The Spanish international's future has been a source of great speculation all summer long, with clubs all over Europe thought to have inquired after the player.

Given Los Che's well-documented financial troubles, it is widely believed that they will have to sell either David Villa or Silva to balance the books - and with the former now certain to stay, the odds have shortened on the latter leaving.

Nevertheless, Valencia recently declared that the 23-year-old midfielder will not be sold, and although Sir Alex Ferguson has hinted that his transfer business is done, sections of the British press would have it that Silva could move to Old Trafford by the end of August.

United will host the Mestalla club in a pre-season glamour friendly this coming Wednesday, and it is claimed that the Premier League champions will use the opportunity to register an interest in Silva.

NOTW reports that the Red Devils will have to stump up at least €29 million to have any hope of signing the player, who is also coveted by Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez.
