Valencia president Manuel Llorente knows Real Madrid are chasing his star winger David Silva.

When spotted by Real fans yesterday before Valencia's 2-0 defeat, Llorente was subject to chants of "Sell us Silva, sell us Silva!".

He later smiled: "Whenever I come here, they tell us they want our players. We have been told to sell them Silva and some others. Last year they wanted (David) Villa."

Llorente had dinner with Real president Florentino Perez and revealed: "At dinner he did not ask for Silva, we were only talking about operations that had not been made."
