AC Milan kick Man Utd, Liverpool into action over Silva

Liverpool and Manchester United may be kicked into action by AC Milan over their interest for Valencia winger David Silva.

Liverpool and Manchester United may be kicked into action by AC Milan over their interest for Valencia winger David Silva.

The Daily Mail says San Siro boss Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian president, is understood to be looking for investors to fund a January spending spree and has reportedly made Valencia midfielder Silva a prime target.

The Italians would be willing to pay about £25million for the Spain international, who can play on the wing or in a more central role.

The 23-year-old was considered by United this summer as a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, while Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez publicly admitted his interest but was angered by leaks involving the negotiations.

Silva also interested Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus in the summer, but cash-strapped Valencia managed to see off suitors with their high demands.
