Sir Alex Ferguson apparently plans on beating fierce rivals Liverpool to a great signing!
Liverpool want to resurrect a bid for Silva, a hero of Spain’s Euro 2008 win and an Anfield target earlier this summer.
But Manchester United are ready to hijack the deal by making their own £20m bid and Arsenal are also interested. (News of the World)
With Sir Alex preparing to defend the clubs’ Premier and Champions League titles this season, he appears keen to line up some new faces before the transfer window closes. With Dimitar Berbatov still not captured, the Manchester United boss is apparently now looking to this Spanish wing wizard to help provide yet more firepower to a club that seems to already have an embarrassment of riches in that department.
Some reports claim that Liverpool have the upper hand in this chase, with Valencia apparently needing funds to stave off financial concerns. Do Man United fans think that they need David Silva or do they already have more than they need in their current squad?
