Do we need him?
It’s just as wop doors in order to get first pick of the January sales. First shoved into his reusable hand-stitchell then that Manchester United can provide some transfer grist. Sir Alex Ferguson is packing his sleeping bag and Thermos and is prepared to spend New Year’s Eve bivouacking outside the shed hemp satchel will be Valencia’s David Silva. A mere £25m will seal the deal. (The Guardian)
As much as I would like us to sign another top notch player, just because I am greedy, I don’t think we really need to do so. Sure come January I may be singing a different tune but we appear to have the right balance in the squad right now where we have talented replacements, sometimes two, in every position.
Valencia are in financial dire straits and I guess alot depends on how they fare in the La Liga this term. If they get Champions League football then thats a big financial boost and also keeps some of their superstars happy, if they manage to even have a decent shot at the title this to will steady the ship and they have started well and have a 100% record.
Obviously the only other reason to try to snap up the talented winger would be so that Liverpool wouldn’t, but given their lack of cash I think a move from the Anfield side is very unlikely.
