David Villa is thinking of changing his mind and dumping his current club Valencia, for Chelsea this summer.

Real Madrid were also in the running for the Spainsh international, but have pulled out of the race.


Villa's £30million transfer fee would solve Valencia's financial problems, after their failure to sell their legendary Mestalla Stadium to property developers.

Villa didn't want to leave the country as his wife had just given birth to their second baby, and Madrid was his perffered club.

But Real are not looking for any more striking power and are looking to work with what they already have.

However, the London club are looking for another foward as Anelka's contract finishes in 2011, plus he is asking for an extra £40,000 a week, pushing his income to £120,000 a week. 

This summer you could be seeing the world class striker putting goals in left right and centre all over England.
