Valencia forward Silva has been closely monitored by Sir Alex Ferguson for the past few months and the United boss has already sent scouts to two of his games this season.
Euro 2008 winner Silva said: “It’s an honour for any player that a club of the prestige of Manchester United should follow them and that in itself is enormous praise.
“I am committed to Valencia and my dream is to win the title but in the future anything is possible.
“Valencia have rejected offers for me in the past few months and I am happy here. But I also know that the Premier League is a big competition and hard to resist.”
Silva was top of Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez’s wanted list in the summer but they were put off by cash-strapped Valencia holding out for £30m.
However, United are also big admirers and Ferguson has the finance available to tempt Valencia into selling one of their prize assets.
