Benitez steps up chase for Silva

The Liverpool manager, Rafael Benitez is ready to intensify his interest in Valencia's David Silva, claims the Independent. The story says that Rafa’s negotiating position will be enhanced by the Spanish club being unable to agree a price for their other prime asset, David Villa.

“Valencia, a club in severe financial crisis, may be forced to reduce their initial £25m demand for Silva,” and The Reds manager “will be able to offer the entire amount up front if Real Madrid adhere to his own demands that their £30m-plus outlay on Xabi Alonso comes in one upfront payment”, claims the story.

“Valencia have been on the brink of bankruptcy all summer and will accept nothing less than a straight cash deal for him.”

“Silva is reluctant to switch to England but will make an exception for Liverpool where he would be joining Spain team-mates Pepe Reina and Fernando Torres,” claims the article.
