Barcelona reject David Villa offer

According to AS, Barcelona have turned down a significant offer for striker David Villa, believed to have come from France.

Although the name of the club, along with the size of the bid, has not been revealed, everything points to it being cash-rich Paris Saint-Germain who are scouring Europe for some star names before the start of next season.

However, new Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova is in no mood to let any of his top players leave the Camp Nou and club President Sandro Rosell has rejected the proposal out of hand.

Villa has spent the last six months on the sidelines after breaking his leg in Barca’s 4-0 FIFA World Club Cup semi-final victory over Qatari side Al-Sadd in Yokohama last December, missing out on Spain’s Euro 2012 campaign as he looks to step up his recovery process.
