The David Villa to Arsenal saga was thought to be over last week after Barcelona president Sandro Rosell said “I completely rule out the transfer of Villa during the winter market.”
However, in what could be great news for Arsenal fans, the 31 year old striker apparently doesn’t see things that way.
The Independent has reports from Spanish paper Sport that Villa is frustrated about not playing and wants to leave the club in the window. The player was rumoured to be keen on a move to North London and Arsenal had apparently readied a team to jet to Barcelona to secure his signature.
The arrival of Pep Guardiola at Bayern also means that a move to Munich shouldn’t be ruled out either.
There are still 11 days left in the transfer window and this one could go to the wire.
