Man City threaten Man Utd push for Villa

Manchester City are chasing Valencia striker David Villa.

The Daily Mail says sources in Spain said the failed Robinho deal for Barcelona was caught up in a chain and dependent on City being able to sign Villa from Valencia.

A move for Spain hot shot Villa would put big-spending City head-to-head with neighbours Manchester United, who have made Villa's £35million signing a priority.

City have publicly insisted their £34m record signing from Real Madrid is not for sale and are likely to want a big-name replacement if they were to change their minds.

Valencia have privately accepted they will have to sell two from Villa, Silva and Juan Mata in a bid to eat into their £450m debts.
