Man Utd Close To Sealing £28m David Silva Deal?

By Chris Wright

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.

    Good bye that would be, he can go upfront on the wings or in the middle…plus getting Macheda some first team action would be great and would help Fabio get up to speed with Rafael

    He would be a great player for us WHEY !

    Its a nice story but I do not see Fergie allowing Macheda to leave this summer. Silva would be a great addition and is one Man Utd should pursue, along with Milos Krasic. However I think Berbatov will leave this summer without another striker being signed. This is why I do not see Macheda leaving, as he is the one likely to benefit from Berbatov exit, possibly with the number 9 shirt as well. Fergie rates him highly and the player has great potential. He will be 19 this summer and is already making an impact. He scored against Chelsea and played a great pass for Nani to score against Spurs. I think Fergie will play 4-5-1 next season, which is why 2 quality midfielders like Silva and Krasic would be great arrivals. Upfront it will be Rooney, but then after we have Macheda, Hernandez, Diouf and Owen. The reason we lack goals is because our midfield has not contributed enough. We also need more creativity and intelligence in the midfield. If we improve that area then Macheda, Hernandez and Diouf, although inexperience, will score goals. These three can all become top strikers and there’s no point getting a Benzema or Villa and block there route to the first team. In 1 or 2 years Macheda could be spoken in the same way people talk about Benzema.

    Very good 4 man united, all rivals should beware of man united next season

  8. Love it. He will be awesome, next stop David Villa for £35 million and then show that flop Berbatov the Door for around £20 million. Also someone like Yoann Gourcuff should be bought for around £25 million. Then sell Anderson and Tosic for around £12 million each.

    How does Manure raise the funds for transfer, when they’re in over 750,000,000 pounds in debt?

    What kind of low life fans, cheers on for more transfers, when they’re beloved club in close to a billion pounds, that’s, 1,000,000,000 in debt?

  12. tyrone says:

    your soooooo negative, Silva WILL sign, why? because Macheda is FAR from being ready for first team action.

  13. Adam says:

  14. JETHRO says:

  15. David Silva will fit man u.plz fergie sign him

  16. mike says:

    oh you poor sad rags,, looks like your dream transfer is coming to manchester,,, but to city not to you,
    you couldnt even afford his wages, so now we got boeteng, yaya and silva,, who’s next?? torres? ibra? higuain? dzeko?

    if i were you boys i would be very very wary of city next season, all you can manage is a few crap players NO_ONE has ever heard of and a freebie who’s out of contract.

    you may laugh at city in europa league this year, but next season youll be lucky to even get in that!

    Its over now for man u, city will win league then neville, giggs, scholes and fergie will all retire leaving you boys deep in the shit, and still nearly £800 million in debt!!]
