Manchester City beat Chelsea in race to sign 29m Valencia forward David Silva

Manchester City have agreed a £29million deal with Valencia for Spain international David Silva. In demand: Silva is set for City move The 24-year-old, who had also been courted by Real Madrid and Chelsea, is now expected to finalise terms on a four year contract worth around £160,000 a week. City delegates have been in Spain to iron out the deal amid concerns that Chelsea may step in at the eleventh hour but are confident everything is now in place. They plan to team the silky midfielder with Yaya Toure and James Milner in a revamped side geared not just for Champions League qualification but a title push. City are still searching for a right-back and will add a striker too before the end of the window but Silva has been a priority, as revealed in Sportsmail last month. The one-time Mancheser United target had been keen on a move to Chelsea but they were unwilling to match cash-strapped Valencia's valuation.  Spain striker Silva keeps focus as speculation swirls over English dealBenitez to muscle in on Man City's move for Silva in new Inter Milan roleMANCHESTER CITY FC
