FC Barcelona signs David Villa for 40 Million Euros

FC Barcelona has completed their first signing of the summer in the form of David Villa from Valencia. THe official FC Barcelona website has broken the story just moments ago. Barca was widely expected to copmplete the signing by Friday. FC Barcelona will pay Valencia 40 million Euros for the prolific Spanish striker. Villa is expected to reach Barcelona on Thursday evening and will undergo mandatory medical tests on Friday morning. We all know these are mere formalities. Villa is expected to sign the deal around Friday afternoon followed by the official presentation to the Camp Nou public. Camp Nou will be open for public during the presentation and trust me we may see scenes similiar to Ibrahimovic signing. Villa will sign a four year deal with an option for a further year. It is not yet known how much Villa will take home at Barca.

This was one transfer which I was looking forward from last season. Villa is expected to fit easily into Barca's playing style. In David Villa, FC Barcelona will have one of the most prolific scorers of all time. David Villa has played in Zaragoza before making a move to Valencia. Villa has not yet won the Pichichi but La Liga's top assisting player in the 2006-07 season. That explains his versatility. David Villa is Spain's current number one choice as a Centre forward. He earned the Golden Boot in Spain's successful Euro 2008 campaign. He now will be looking forward to recreate the magical partnership between Xavi and Iniesta at the club level. He also would be looking forward to weave a magical partnership with the Argentinian sensation, Lionel Messi. I can say now that we have effectively closed the gap following Eto'o departure. There are rumours that the arrival of Villa means exit for Ibrahimovic. I seriously doubt those rumours.
