United Lead Race For £20m Spaniard

David Silva

By Football Talk.

Manchester United are set to go head-to-head with Real Madrid in the race to sign Valencia midfielder David Silva. Real have been widely expected to complete a £20m deal for Silva during the summer but now United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to swoop in and sign the player from under the noses of the Spanish giants.

The 24-year-old is ready to follow David Villa and quit Valencia after his fellow Spanish international left for Barcelona last week. Silva has been linked with Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Barcelona in recent months, but it seems that Real and United are the front-runners for his signature.

Reports in Spain last week suggested Madrid had already contacted Valencia officials about Silva’s availablility and were close to secureing a deal, but now Fergie is set to make an approach and tempt the tricky winger to Old Trafford. Although Ferguson is a huge admirer of Silva, he will not pay over the odds in an over-inflated transfer market as he looks to add one special player to his squad.
