Transfer Speculation: Silva, Falcao, De Federico

David Silva
“Valencia continue to insist the Spain winger will not be allowed to leave the Mestalla,” says the Mail’s ‘Insider’. But Liverpool may test the cash strapped club “with an offer of between £18-20m once they have banked the money from Xabi Alonso’s move to Real Madrid,” claims the speculative story. The story goes on to say: “Alonso’s departure will disappoint Liverpool supporters, but manager Rafael Benitez knows that partnering Silva with his Spain teammate Fernando Torres at Anfield would go a long way to softening the blow.”

Rafa Benitez may be targeting a late swoop for the highly rated Colombian striking sensation Radamel Falcao Garcia Zarate claims the Post. The Liverpool manager will try and disrupt the 23-year-old’s move to Benfica, who are “strong favourites to sign him for a knockdown £3m fee.” The talented 23-year-old who is simply known as 'Falcao' currently plies his trade for River Plate in The Argentina who currently plays for River Plate “is on his way out of the cash-strapped club who reportedly still owe the player 400,000 euros which has held up his transfer to Portugal,” says the story.

The player recently signed a three-year contract extension with River to make sure the club receive a bigger fee from Benfica. “The Lisbon giants were to purchase 80% of Falcao’s economic rights but the move has stalled.” Falcao has been linked to Aston Villa, Arsenal and Manchester United in the past.

Matias De Federico
Liverpool are believed to be monitoring the progress of Argentine striker Matias De Federico, says the Post. The 19-year-old has established himself as a regular alongside fellow prodigy Javier Pastore as Los Quemeros have emerged as surprise table-toppers of the Clausura championship. De Federico is thought to be considered the 'New Messi' - recently impressed national team boss Diego Maradona on his international debut, netting a spectacular goal in a 3-1 friendly win against Panama.
"I like to watch the English Premier League, it is very fast and I think that it would suit my speed well," said the player
