Barca won't part with Villa

Barcelona have no intention of parting with David Villa as it would be difficult for them to find a replacement of similar quality.

David Villa: Continues to be linked with a summer switch away from Camp Nou

Speculation continues to suggest that Villa's days at Camp Nou are numbered, with Arsenal mooted as a possible destination for the Spain international.

Barca have, however, offered no indication that they are looking to move the striker out in the summer.

Villa remains one of the most natural finishers in Europe, when deployed in his favoured central role, and is still working his way back from a badly broken leg.

Barcelona see no reason why they should disrupt their squad by moving out a proven performer, especially as they would then have to spend big to reinforce their ranks.

Sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta said of Villa: "We do not usually comment on anything. We spoke and talked with him and his representative. Nothing is concrete.

"The market is not what it was a couple of years ago, we cannot find solutions as we did before.

"Villa has goals, a feel for the game, end product and aspirations."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
