City boss Mark Hughes has targeted the Spanish hit-man and the deal has been rubber-stamped by City’s Arab owners.
They are determined to make an impact signing in the transfer window and will take advantage of Valencia’s perilous financial position. (News of the World)
David Villa has been linked with a move away from the Mestalla for quite a while now but the speculation about a move to Eastlands has grown more and more pronounced in recent weeks and this source seems to suggest it’s only a matter of days before he signs for Manchester City. If he was debating such a move then his side’s 4-0 mauling by Barcelona last night will have made his decision all the more easier to make. Valencia have been in reported financial dire straits for about 18 months now and if the La Liga club is indeed offered such a sum for their prized asset they may not be able to resist. One thing is for sure if Mark Hughes snares the Spanish international then alongside Robinho he would surely have one of the most feared strike partnerships in the top tier! Do City fans think this deal will be sealed in January?
Brand New Feature. (1-10 scale, One = Pure make believe, Ten = is a transfer all but complete)
