The source below suggests that noises coming from a certain La Liga club have re-ignited the race for one hell of a striker!
In a sensational report out today, it has been announced by Marca that the majority shareholder in Valencia, Juan Soler, has told the club that sales have to be made to balance the books.
They expect to get around 40 million euros for David Villa, and they will have no shortage of bidders for him, with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool heading the list, with Man Utd, Chelsea and Milan other possibilities. (footylatest.com)
Valencia will not be keen to sell their prize asset to fellow La Liga sides, and Barca have already spent a fortune and Real Madrid are already putting all their financial eggs in one basket, namely the huge projected transfer of a certain Man United player. However if Liverpool manage to offload another big name player to go with the money already raised from the sales of Crouch, Riise, Carson and Guthrie then they could muster the cash to put in a bid. Former Valencia boss Rafa Benitez has already spoken of his interest in Villa in the past and I think we can all agree that a potential strike pairing of Torres and Villa at Anfield could be too good an opportunity for the Spanish striker and the Merseyside club to resist! Do Liverpool fans think a pairing of Villa and Torres would the club potential title challengers?
