Villa could go in January

Marca believe that Barcelona will be happy to sell David Villa this winter, if an offer of €15m comes in for the forward.

Spain’s highest goalscorer at international level has struggled in recent weeks to feature heavily in Tito Vilanova’s first-team plans, often only restricted to 15-minute cameos as a substitute.

As a result, rumours of a move away have resurfaced, a year on from his double leg break suffered at the Club World Cup.

Villa has a contract with Barcelona until June 2013, but where the club have been understood in other reports this week to be keen to have him renew that ahead of a potential summer 2014 sale, the striker is believed equally to be angling for a 2013 exit.

Marca today understand then that the rumoured Juventus target is available in January, if a club comes in with a €15m offer and the player makes clear his intentions to leave.

Barca paid €40m for Villa in 2009 and are reported as seeing the €15m return as an amount to ensure they will not make a loss in paying that fee. It is believed in the same approach that a €10m bid next summer would then be enough to take the 31-year-old away from the Camp Nou.
