Old Trafford boss reportedly close to sealing deal to bring in highly rated Spaniard.
Manchester United are reportedly very close to sealing a deal to sign Valencia’s Spanish international attacker David Silva this summer. The 24 year old flair player has been linked with a move away from the Mestalla for the the best part of three years but a deal is apparently close to being done to bring the winger to Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to offer a fee in the region of £28m for Silva and many believe that a deal may include the possibility of a young Manchester United player being sent on loan in the other direction with the likes of Federico Macheda and Brazilian Fabio being most likely to complete a season long spell at the La Liga club.
Valencia have been in financial difficulties for a few years and the need to sell one of their prized trio (David Villa, David Silva and Juan Mata) has reached a peak and the Spanish side seem loathed to lose prolific striker David Villa and are apparently more open to cashing in on Silva.
Manchester United are apparently keen on adding more creativity to their midfield and the fact that David Silva can play in a number of roles from out and out winger to the man in the hole behind the strikers, appeals to the Old Trafford boss.
