Liverpool look to take advantage of the financial situation at Valencia by swooping for Silva
Valencia are alleged to have amassed debts of up to £400million, they are also looking to finance a new stadium too, that could cost up to £250million.

Add Juan Solares’ (Valencia owner) desire to sell the club, together with the possible need to sell their star players such as Silva, Villa, and Joaquin, and you may see a club in the midst of a mini-crisis.

Silva was recently subject to a bid from Sevilla. A fee of £17million was rejected by club president Juan Villalonga, which infuriated owner Solares.

If Liverpool were to place a figure within this region, then they might be able to get their man.

It is expected that some of the money from the Crouch deal will fund the Silva bid. (

Some names continue to align themselves with potential moves to Anfield, but David Silva is one that is surely exciting Liverpool fans greatly. Benitez has made no secret of his admiration of the 22 year old, and a player as adaptable as the Valencia man is clearly a much sought-after prospect. Rafa’s links to the club could help hinder any move for the Spanish international, but he is sure to be considered a likely departure from the Mestalla, as they continue to fight massive debts. It seems that the Merseyside outfit are one of the most likely to snare the youngster, depending on whether they have the money to persuade the La Liga side to sell. Who do Liverpool fans want to see their boss sign before the transfer window shuts?.
