Villa ponders Premier League move

Barcelona striker David Villa will consider his future with the club after the final La Liga game this weekend, reports Marca.

Villa, who turns 32 next December, has still not been informed if he will be part of Tito Vilanova’s squad for next season, but the signs are that the Barca boss is not going to include him in his plans.

Nonetheless, Villa’s exit from the Camp Nou may be problematic even if the Catalan outfit will not try to stop him. The biggest obstacle is his high salary of around €8m-a-year, which few clubs would be willing to pay for a player who is approaching the wrong end of his career and suffered a serious injury not so long ago.

In the meantime, El Guaje is contemplating some interesting offers from the Premier League and would welcome continuing his career in England as his contract with La Blaugrana has just 12 months to run.

According to the Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur are understood to be willing to pay around €12m for his services, with Liverpool and Arsenal also showing interest in a player who cost €40m from Valencia in 2010, of which €10m is still outstanding.
