Nou Camp star has no plans to leave.
Barcelona striker David Villa has rubbished speculation linking him with a Manchester City move by claiming he wants to retire at the Nou Camp.
The 29-year-old joined the Spainish and European champions last summer for €40million and scored 23 goals in all competitions.
The Spain international was rumoured to be on his way out as Barca needed his transfer money to spend on buying Udinese forward Alexis Sanchez.
But he denied these reports and claimed he is excited to play alongside Sanchez and the Catalan giants other summer target Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas.
“All that’s been said hasn’t bothered me because it isn’t rumours or speculation, it’s a lie,” Villa said.
“Hopefully I can retire at Barca because that would mean everything has been great for me.
“I would like to have the chance to retire at Barca even though I’m only 29. It would be very nice. I want to be at Barca as long as possible.
“They (Sanchez and Fabregas) are two very good players at both an individual and collective level, and it would be a big injection of quality for our side (if they signed).”
