Real Chase Silva

Real Madrid are reportedly ready to rival Premier League sides Manchester United and Liverpool for winger David Silva.

The slight Spaniard has been courted by a handful of clubs in recent years, with both United and Liverpool thought to be just two of the leading clubs chasing a signature.

Silva and Valencia team-mate David Villa are continuously courted by the cream of europe, with Los Che suffering serious financial difficulties that threatened a mass exodus from the Mestalla only a year ago.

Despite the La Liga side holding onto their stars through the difficult times, speculation linking either of the Spaniards away from their current home is never far from the headlines.

That is very much the case now, with speculation rife in the English media that Silva is set for a move to the Premier League this year.
