The Daily Mail says United are back in the hunt for Valencia midfielder David Silva.

United enquired last summer and again prior to the January transfer window.

They have rated him for some time with recommendations from European scout Martin Ferguson.

They have some concerns that he is a bit lightweight for Valencia’s £23million valuation but recognise he has undoubted talent and can play wide left or behind the strikers.

United still want to bring in at least another two players and may strengthen the centre of midfield first. (Daily Mail)

Not the first time we have been linked with David Silva but with about three weeks to go until the transfer window slams shut, it will hopefully be a deal that comes to fruition. The need for another wide player with genuine creativity and pace, unlike the more workhorse performers like Ji Sung Park, is paramount unless of course Nani continues his Pre-season form in which case he may ably fill the hole.

This source is right to suggest that a central midfielder would not go amiss either, what with Owen Hargreaves set for another lay off and Paul Scholes not getting any younger. With the new season excitingly close I think we need one or two more investments to fully realise the club’s potential and I have been impressed by our recent performances and the way the new signings have bedded in.
