Barca striker Villa opens his mouth again

David Villa, Barcelona’s striker has opened his mouth again to say that he’d like Gunners captain Cesc to play for them. This trappy little Spaniard doesn’t learn, does he?

Barcelona themselves have made no secret over their admiration for the midfielder but have been unable to meet Arsenal’s asking price.

Villa said: “As a player, everybody knows what Barcelona brings [for players].

“And as a person, he (Cesc Fabregas) deserves to return to Barcelona, his family is here and it is where he started.

“Having him would be a great joy and I’d be happy for him because he deserves it, and I’d be happy to have him as my team-mate.”
