After issuing a ‘come-and-get-me’ plea to Manchester United yesterday, it now seems that Valencia winger David Silva is closer than ever to making his protracted switch from the Mestalla to Old Trafford.
Silva told The Daily Express yesterday;
“When you hear a club like Manchester United are interested in you it is an honour.
I am very aware of the Premier League, and in recent years it has been the stand-out league in the world. If it came calling, especially if it was a club like Manchester United, it would be very hard to resist.”
According to reports doing the rounds today, the 24-year-old Spanish international is now on the verge of agreeing a £28 million move to United that would see young fringe players such as Federico Macheda and Fabio Da Silva moving to Valencia on season-long loans next term.
