So David Villa’s quest to re start his carer in North London and the Premiership continues, however the news this morning is that the Spanish striker might not heading for his expected destination
The Barca man, who very nearly joined Arsenal in the winter window is, according to radio station Cadena Ser and newspaper Mundo Deportivo, on his way to White Hart Lane and that a £15million fee has already been agreed between the two clubs.
However any deal is predicated on whether or not Spurs qualify for the Champions League.
Presumably if Arsenal qualify then the striker will want to join the red and white half of North London.
So what is really going on? I wonder if the Vila rumour is similar to supposed Arsenal deals for Higuain and Jovetic.
Maybe agreements have been signed but are only going to be activated if the club achieves Champions League football.
Both Arsenal and Spurs will need to announce some big transfers on Monday to ensure that, in these recessionary times, those wavering over renewing their season tickets cough up the cash.
Personally I think Villa is too old and out of form for £15 million. What do you think?
