Barca set to win Villa battle

Valencia's star striker David Villa is set for crunch talks with club president Manuel Llorente, amid growing rumours of an imminent deal with Barcelona.

The 28-year-old Spain international has helped Los Che qualify for next season's Champions League, having shown loyalty to Valencia on several previous occasions.

However, Villa finally looks set to move on this summer, with Barca poised to beat the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United to the marksman's signature.

Villa told the Spanish press:"What is true is that I have four years left on my contract with Valencia.

"However, once the league is finished I will meet with my president. We will look at the options out there and discuss our wishes.

"Have my desires have changed from last year? I keep that to myself, but the president of Valencia will be the first to know."
