Rubbish. Even if we have ended our interest in Berbatov it wouldn't be because of a supposed interest in Sliva - they play in complete different positions.CROoney said:David Silva, along with David Villa, is in contract negotiations with Valencia, and yesterday the club said that talks were going well with Villa and they expected the Spanish international to agree to a contract extension in the end.
But Silva's agent, Julio Llorente, said on Friday that although talks were going well, they were still some way apart in their valuations of the player,: "He wants to stay at Valencia," said Llorente.
"We'll see what happens, but to remain is his first choice. There are other possibilities to analyse, but he's very happy here.
"In the coming days if something comes in we'll need to evaluate it and come to a decision. But David wants to stay and he has a contract.
But today, Lorente has said that Manchester United have contacted him with an official bid for the 22 year-old, which basically ends United's interest in Tottenham's Dimitar Berbatov.The official approach could put a serious spanner in the contract talks, and with the millions that Man Utd could offer, it could price Valencia out of any chance of a compromise.
If United's offer is accepted, and Valencia allow the club to talk to the player, then it could see an avalanche of counter-offers from other big clubs, notably Barcelona, and possibly Chelsea.
Things should become very interesting in the next few days.
I wouldn't be suprised if Fergie is going around and asking clubs for a 'first option' on players for when/if Ronaldo leaves whenever that may be.
David Silva is very good though. Although he's a bit light weight.
