Real Madrid are ready to increase their offer for Valencia forward David Villa in a desperate attempt to land the Euro 2008 Golden Boot winner.

Just less than 24 hours after making their “final” bid of €47 million for Villa, and seeing it rejected immediately, Real Madrid look set to make another “final” offer of €52 million for El Guaje.

Spanish sports daily Marca claims that the Los Merengues hierarchy will propose their new bid to Valencia within the next few hours in a desperate attempt to capture a big name striker as a way of compensating for their failure to recruit Cristiano Ronaldo and to hang on to Robinho.

More interestingly, it is also believed that Madrid are interested in Villarreal winger Santi Cazorla and an initial approach of €16 million could be tabled to the Yellow Submarine.
