Fresh speculation has arisen regarding the future of Spanish striker David Villa. The much sought after Spaniard who currently plays for Valencia in La Liga, has expressed that he would be open to a move to the Premier League.
After being linked to fellow Spanish league clubs Barcelona and Real Madrid over the summer, a deal was never completed and Villa remained at Valencia. In a recent interview Villa explained why his transfer was never completed. “Quite simply, I rejected the possibility of moving abroad [in the summer] because there were issues that would not allow me to leave my country,” he told the Times. “My wife was pregnant and it didn’t seem right to leave.”
The fresh news of a potential move has come as Valencia are believed to be ready to cash in on Villa in an attempt to manage their £620 million debt.
Villa did nothing to extinguish the fire as he said, “I like the Premier League a lot. It’s the league I follow the most along with La Liga and I’ve got a lot of friends playing there. There are a lot of globally important teams there that play very good football.”
As of now, Villa looks like he will remain at Valencia until the end of the season, however where he will end up next season is an interesting story to follow. Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City are believed to the front runners in the race to sign Villa.
