Roberto Mancini Wants Barcelona ace
Villa has been unable to break back into the Barcelona side since returning from long term injury and it seems a number of clubs are interested in signing the former Valencia striker.
Chelsea and Swansea are both keen on a January move as well as a host of other European clubs but Barcelona are yet to decide if they want to sell the 31-year-old or simply loan him out for six months.
Spain’s record goalscorer formed a superb partnership with David Silva while the pair were at Valencia and with current strikers Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko struggling for form, the deal could be a season changer for Mancini.
Villa’s arrival could see the end of Mario Balotelli’s time in Manchester with AC Milan the likely destination for the controversial Italian.
