Chelsea set to scupper Manchester City deal for Valencia midfielder David Silva

Chelsea are plotting to hijack a move by Manchester City to sign Valencia midfielder David Silva.

The 24-year-old's future has been the subject of much speculation in the past, particularly owing to the brittle state of finances at the Spanish club.

City have been interested in securing the services of the Spain international, with the La Liga club recently revealing that the Eastlands outfit had been given permission to chalk out a deal with the player.

The story is too old to be commented.
