Chelsea make unsuccessful bid for Villa

Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague claims that Chelsea have lodged an unsuccessful £40 million bid for Valencia striker David Villa. Balague told Sky Sports News, "There will be an offer for Villa (from Real Madrid) next week, which means that there will be another Chelsea versus Real Madrid fight because Chelsea have put an offer to Valencia of £40m, which Valencia have not accepted."

He continued by saying that should the decision be left to Villa, then he will likely choose Madrid. "The player wants to go to Real Madrid and it's only a matter of days (until he does)."
