Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is determined to win the race for Valencia ace David Villa. The Sunday Express says Ferguson, with most of the £80m from Cristiano Ronaldo's sale to Real Madrid burning a hole in his pocket, is on alert after Valencia admitted they are seeking a replacement for David Villa.
The Spanish side are heavily in debt and need to sell one of their assets. Midfielder David Silva, 23, is also a wanted man but it appears that Villa will be first out of the door.
Valencia boss Unai Emery said: "The exit of Villa will depend on us identifying a suitable replacement."
The Spaniard had said he wanted to stay in Spain but he now fancies joining United.
