Chelsea and Spurs prepare for Valencia raid

Published Add your comment

Top Premier League side have been alerted to the availability of Valencia stars David Silva and David Villa after Valencia coach Unai Emery admitted he is resigned to losing his best players.

It has been well publicised that Valencia are in financial difficulty and, after their final game of the season, Emery dropped a hint that they will listen to offers for two players who could rake in a fortune for the club.

Emery said: “Today we had to discard certain players and play with people who were better prepared mentally and physically to play.

“Any coach wants to have his future team set as soon as possible, bit it is certain that some issues take time.

“We are resigned to the departure of important players, but while they are here we will count on them. The summer will be long,” he added.

Villa, valued at around £40 million, has been linked with clubs in both England and Spain and Real Madrid could provide stiff opposition to Chelsea.

Despite winning the double, Carlo Ancelotti’s side have been linked with Liverpool striker Fernando Torres recently but Villa would come cheaper and is rated as one of the top goal scorers in the world.

Tottenham have reportedly put in a bid for winger Silva as they prepare for life in the Champions League but, should Manchester United reignite their interest, Silva could be off to a more prestigious club.
