Manchester City and Chelsea’s hopes of signing David Villa could be boosted after Valencia said their finances may force them to sell the striker. (Daily Mirror)
This really is a sad story when you consider that Valencia are in financial ruin and that they could be forced to sell off players at their club to stay afloat. That would mean Silva and Villa would be moving for a pretty penny as soon as this summer. With administration staring the Spanish club straight in the face, it’s becoming increasingly likely that the massive release clause on Villa’s contract could be gone before we know it. City and Chelsea could both use a decent striker, and judging by the funds both have, it looks likely that a bidding war will be commencing soon enough!
What do City and Chelsea supporters think? Would you like your club to go after Villa this summer?
