Valencia man points the way to a Stamford Bridge move.
David Silva admits the Premier League is ‘the place to be’ and has opened the door for a move to Chelsea.
The Valencia winger is currently away on World Cup duty, with Spain’s quest for global glory dominating his thoughts at present.
He has, however, taken time out to discuss his future, with reports continuing to suggest that he is destined to leave Los Che this summer.
A switch to England has been widely touted, with Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City all believed to be keen.
Silva has now revealed that he would be willing to make such a move, but has implied that he would rather try his luck in West London than the North West.
He said, in comments reported by the Daily Star: “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 Madridor 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. (Sky Sports)
I could be wrong but it does seem very much like the Valencia winger wants to move to Stamford Bridge! He is being about as subtle as a sledgehammer but if this approach works then who will complain. Carlo Ancelotti is known to be a fan of the Spanish international so there seems a very real chance that a deal could be struck.
The Mestalla outfit is still heavily in debt and even though they have cashed in on David Villa’s sale to Barcelona they probably still need to sell more of their stars to avoid financial ruin. The problem may be that the La Liga club value the 24 year old at £33m and that could prove a bit too much for the west London side to accept. Clearly they can afford to pay that sum but they may feel, probably quite rightly, that they can get the talented winger for a little less.
