Villa And Silva? Yeah Right, They'll Sign

Villa And Silva? Yeah Right, They'll Sign

Apparently, Valencia are bracing themselves for the sale of their two biggest assets, David Villa and David Silva. The two Spanish internationals have been the subject of intense speculation throughout the summer as the club is in a precarious financial position.

Valencia sporting director Fernando Gomez told Las Provoncias TV: 'If there was a moment that arrived that we cannot stand it any more, then of course we must sell and they would be sold.

'We made a great effort in the summer to keep them, but if the economic situation continues, then things could become very serious.

'Still it was a success for us to keep them, because there was some large money offered to us.'


The English media went into overdrive immediately: the Daily Mail and the Mirror both claim that United are 'closing in' on Silva and Villa. Yeah, that's likely. They confidently declare that United wanted them over the summer but Valencia did not want to sell. With the Spanish club caving in now, Villa and Silva will be on their way to Old Trafford soon. Or so the papers' reasoning goes.

Yeah, sure. Here are two players, both have expressed their desire to remain in Spain and both are liable to attract interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona. So what are the odds that they will join United, especially in January as the tabloids seem to be thinking? Long odds they must be. It would be brilliant to get both to Old Trafford in January - one of them would even be eligible for the Champions League - but it's not gonna happen. It's not Fergie's style to buy two such big names, especially not in January.

Nice to see them at City too - and even though they could easily outbid you and pay far higher wages, methinks that won't happen either.

Yeah, but it's trophies and success the best players are usually after !! Unless you count the money grabbing mercenaries that are masquerading as footballers.

I highly doubt whether your owners would sanction spending so much money in one go.

Or the banks for that matter FCB! They only just got some of their money back afterall following the sale of Ronaldo to Real Madrid - How else do you think that you ended up with Owen on a free and Obertan for £3 million in addition to £17 million Valencia after selling an £80 million player. This is wishful thinking from The Sun I think. At least when City are linked with every player under the sun we can at least go out and buy them!

I'd settle for Villa not too fussed about Silva truthfully i'd have Agbonlahor and Young other both of them, proven premierleague players so no need to adjust, wont be as pricy as the other two and the add much needed pace to the team.

And if I'd been appointed as Financial Director at the swamp then it is most likely that Deloitte would have been the ones appointing me and not the Glazers!

Must be a thankless task being finance director at the swamp. Still, at least the chap must have big biceps from all the bailing he'll have to do. Pass the bucket!
