Valencia ace Villa prefers Man Utd over Chelsea
Roman Abramovich has approved a mega bid for the hitman who will be sold by his hard-up club in the next transfer window, and a top agent has been brought in to do the deal.
The Stamford Bridge outfit are planning the raid and hope to have their transfer ban lifted or suspended to let them bring the superstar to London at the second attempt.
However, the Villa camp have revealed that they have already turned down Chelsea once - in the last window - and the player would still prefer to go to United.
A source close to the star said: "David was approached about the Chelsea move in the summer but did not fancy it. He was not sure how often he would play or whether they played his style.
