Chelsea Lead Race For £25m Spanish Star
By Football Talk.
David Silva has said the Premier League is ‘the place to be’ and has talked up a move to champions Chelsea. The much sought-after Valencia winger is away in South Africa with the Spanish squad, but took time out to discuss his future as reports circulate that he may be leaving Los Che this summer.
Silva has attracted interest from Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea in recent times and boosted the premiership big-boys with the admission that he would like to play in the Premier League, but took the time to praise the West Londoners.
“Chelsea have established themselves as one of the best clubs in Europe over the last five years. They might not have the history of Real Madrid or AC Milan but they are creating their own history now. There is no reason why in the future Chelsea can’t be as decorated as Real Madrid.
“Chelsea probably have, along with Barcelona, the best squad in football and if any player joins Chelsea he knows he is going to win things.
“In players like John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba they have players who would get into any team in the world and it would be a pleasure to play with them.
“There is no doubt in my mind that Chelsea would be a great club to play for – and a club where I could fulfil my ambition of league titles and the European Cup.
“The Premier League is still the place to be, no other league in the world has six or seven Champions League quality teams.”
It is thought that it would take a fee in excess of £25m to secure the services of Silva, who started in Spain’s shock 1-0 defeat to Switzerland in their World Cup opener.
