Chelsea encouraged in pursuit of Valencia star Villa

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti remains keen on Valencia ace David Villa.

The Daily Star says the Blues have been chasing Valencia striker Villa for more than a year without any luck.

However, with Valencia announcing they're €550 million in debt and directors conceding stars may be sold, Chelsea have revived their push for Villa.

Earlier this month the Court of Arbitration for Sport suspended a transfer ban imposed on the Blues while they wait to rule on a dispute over the signing of French youngster Gael Kakuta.
