United's Spanish Interest?

Whilst many clubs see the Valencia forward David Villa as a key transfer target this summer, I reckon his forward partner is a far better option.

With Valencia cash strapped, to say the least, there is expected to be an exodus of stars from the Spanish club this summer.

David Villa, the free scoring Spanish striker, is expected to head towards either of the big two Spanish clubs, Real Madrid or Barcelona.

But I believe we`d be better suited to making an offer for David Silva.

On the occasions I`ve got to watch Valencia it is this lad that makes the side tick, he`s younger, he`s skilful, fast and has an eye for goal, more importantly, if reports coming from Spain are reliable, the lad would jump at the chance of a move to Old Trafford, as he explains,

'When you hear a club like Manchester United is interested in you it is an honour."

'I am very aware of the Premier League, and in recent years it has been the stand-out league in the world.

'If it came calling, especially if it was a club like Manchester United, it would be very hard to resist."

'I am happy at Valencia but every player has his price and if they get an offer they think is good business anything is possible.'

Get in there Sir Alex, the kid is class believe me!

Just the Silva lining we need! Creative player, can play across the midfield and would be an amazing addition!

No way Valencia would let go of him for under 25-30 million. He's a amazing player.

It'd be interesting to see who Valencia sell- They just need to sell either Silva or Villa or the pair of Mata-Hernandez to get out of their desperate financial situation.

If you can find places for overrated ex-superstars in your midfield I am sure we can accommodate the excellent talent that is Silva. He is definitely worth the money, considering how the transfer market has shaped up. Mata is a good option on the left too! Silva though would be the ideal playmaker in center mid.

I'm still undecided on David Silva. I think he is a quality player but with his price tag we wouldnt be buying anybody else. He would help solve our creativity issues but I'd still like us to sign a midfielder who could try to emulate Lampards goal scoring - someone like marek hamsik. Also his size might be an issue. Seeing how modric has adapted has given me more hope in this regard but there is still always a possibility that Silva might just come here - feel the full force of the premier league and then decide he doesnt have the bottle for it. I'd love to see him here- but its a big price to pay for a player who may not adapt.

You need to sell before you can buy, interest payments still on the rise, but I hope you can keep Rooney, the Premier needs players of his quality, no matter which team he plays for.

Interest repayments wont be the reason we sell this summer - it'll be the 25 man squad rules coming into play next season. We'll need to get rid of 4 players to bring one in. I think those 4 will probably be Foster, Possebon, Tosic and Berbatov who would raise us over 25m between them. If fergie has plans to bring in more than 1 more player I'd think De Laet, Owen, Carrick, Gibson and maybe even Vidic would be next in line to move on depending on which positions he wanted to strengthen.

If a Milner and a Silva can cost 25 each, then Foster, Possebon, Tosic and Berbatov together will be much more than that! Though I see only Tosic and maybe Foster leaving on a permanent, Berba may go if we get a good deal!

He seems to be a fantastic player but I wouldn't pay over the odds not because he is not talented,its just that how he will cope with the physical nature of the EPL,thats my only question but if this declaration by him is true,then it surely gives us another option.

Your right my friend but in my opinion our wings our sorted out for next season.Nani has been fantastic from jan. and we should surely give him a chance to progress further and in Valencia we have a player who if I'm not wrong has created the most chances,he only has to work on his finishing ,plus fletcher has taken one half of the CM,so it leaves us with another spot,we can choose one from Modric,Milner,Ireland,and now Silva,I'm assuming Carrick will be sold.

Nani and Valencia have both been brilliant but in my view we could do better. Valencia is strong, fast, hard working and has a good cross on him but he lacks the ability to do the unexpected in terms of creating chances (he has one skill which is wait, kick it past the defender, then chase after it) and is especially poor when it comes to scoring them himself. In my view the best performances and most important contributions that we have seen from Nani have been from the right. I think the ideal situation would be to have Nani on the right with Valencia as a backup. Or he could play in the middle in the box to box role in a 433. With Fletcher and hopefully Hargreaves protecting the defence, I think a front 4 of Rooney, with Nani, Silva and Benzema/Hamsik in behind would be perfect.

antriksh, you can kiss your modric dreams goodbye. he will be an integral part of spurs for a very very long time. why? cuz CL here we come! do your tapping up elsewhere.

As much as I like modric, Im glad spurs qualified for the CL. I have had enough of spurs signings at united.

Hey tuscan, i think OT has recently become a burial ground for Spurs players. different sort of pressure up there. berba is a shell of a person he used to be. what did you guys do to him :) ??

Unfortunate that your ex players can't seem to make that next step up, hardcore_spurs! :P Modric is good, but no thanks, like i have said before we have contributed enough to your kitty! I think one of Anderson, Carrick or Gibson may leave if we do buy a creative mid. Van der Vaart would be a more economical option. The likes of Hamsik, Jovetic would again be a lot of money on potential, rather Gourcouff than those two. Silva though is a established performer, and I think he will do just fine with our "physical" game.

silva and gourcouff are good but joe cole would be available on a free transfer (plus he is proven in EPL and CL). maybe worth considering? i don't think we will be able to even think of joe cole, as his wages alone will blow us out of the water.

btw, what do you guys think of the fate that awaits berba? will he stay or will he leave OT?

Joe Cole is not a "fix", the wages would not compensate for the number of games he is likely to play! I hope Berba stays providing there is some hope of regaining his self confidence. No doubting his talent, just seems like a hare caught in headlights! just that funny feeling that if we do sell him , he may go on to recover his scoring form just fine!

Hamsik has a 1in3 goal scoring ratio as a 21-year old in serie a. He is the only player I think could do for united from midfield, what lampard does for chelsea. Gourcuff has undeniable quality, but hasnt been consistent enough this season - if he cant do it in france Im not sure he could do it here. I think joe cole would be a decent addition if we spent all our money elsewhere (if we bought milner and benzema for example) but he should only be a last resort.

I think berbas future is entirely dependent on whether we can get benzema or not. I cant see us bringing in another expensive striker to sit on the bench, so whoever we bring in should be able to operate from the wings in a 433. Benzema did this for lyon all the time so if we can get him on loan or permanently then we'll let berba go.

That's the thing, if we are looking for a mobile attacking players capable of playing across the field, our options are limited. Benzema, Silva, Suarez..... I would be okay with Berba leaving if we got a Fabiano on the cheap.
