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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
