Carles Puyol has reportedly told a Brazilian journalist that he believes David Villa is leaving Barcelona this summer.
The striker is about to enter the final year of his contract at Camp Nou and has been linked with a move out of the club for the past few months.
In conversation with a Brazilian journalist, who did not identify his profession to the player, Puyol reportedly admitted that the 31-year-old is leaving.
The exchange below began with discussing where new signing Neymar would fit in at the club.
“On the left wing, as he played at Santos,” Puyol commented.
“And who would play on the right?” asked the reporter Fabio Sormani.
“Pedro or Sanchez.”
“And Villa, is he leaving?”
“Yeah, but I do not know where he is going to.”
Sormani also posted on his Twitter account a picture of himself with Puyol at the alleged chance encounter.
