David Villa could join Chelsea
Rafa Benítez wants more goal. ‘Daily Mail’, ‘Mirror’ and ‘The Sun’ coincide today by stating that David Villa is the Spanish coach's priority objective to reinforce Chelsea's lead until the end of the season. The FC Barcelona attacker lives his worst time at the Catalan club and is not being usual in Tito Vilanova's line-ups, so it is speculated with his possible exit.
Despite the blunt 8-0 endorsed by the ‘Blue team’ recently to Aston Villa, Rafa Benítez only has Fernando Torres as a born forward and, although now he seems to have regained his sense of smell, the Fuenlabrada player has gone through several dry spells since arriving at Stamford Bridge.
‘Daily Mail’ says that Villa would arrive on loan until the end of the season since Roman Abramovich's dream, como es sabido, goes through the hiring of Atlético de Madrid striker Radamel Falcao next summer. For this reason, the emergency and temporary solution would be David Villa. Chelsea would win in scoring effectiveness and the Spanish striker, of 31 years, He would have the minutes that they are denying him at Barcelona to regain sensations after his serious injury last season and achieve the continuity he needs. Also Villa, he has always shown his desire to one day play in the Premier League.
In case of transferring, Villa would meet at Chelsea with his teammate Fernando Torres with whom he formed a deadly pair in the Luis Aragonés National Team and with whom he has alternated the position in Vicente del Bosque, when both have agreed in full power.
Other names pointed out by ‘Daily Mail’ for the Chelsea forward are the German Andre Schurrle of Bayer Leverkusen and the French Demba Ba, Del Newcastle. There is also the option to re-fish the Belgian Romelu Lukaku, on loan at West Bromwich Albion but would be the last option.
‘Mirror’ also publishes that Chelsea has positioned itself ahead of Arsenal and Liverpool to be David Villa's destiny if he finally decides to leave FC Barcelona. And he says that Chelsea could have some 15 million euros to invest in the loan of the Asturian forward.
The interest is real but it seems that Barcelona would not be willing to let Villa leave in the middle of the season with the League, the Champions and the Cup at stake: “In january, we will keep Villa”, Andoni Zubizarreta said a few days ago, Barça sports director.
