Tottenham want David Villa so Gareth Bale doesn’t leave

North London club Tottenham have already offered 11Million euros for David Villa to leave the Catalan club despite the fact that he’s still under contract until June 2014, according to the Daily Star. The British newspaper says that coach André Villas-Boas is now willing to offer 14.5Million euros for a player that many teams are chasing after.

According to Daily Star sources, the objective of Spurs’ boss Andre Villas-Boas is to add more firepower to the side as they have relied too heavily this season on Welsh wizard Gareth Bale and hopes that the signing of the top scorer of the Spain national team of all time will convince Bale to stay at Tottenham.

However, Spurs is not the only club to have shown keen interest in the Barca striker and the Daily Star is signaling both Arsenal and Atletico Madrid as Spurs’ possible biggest rivals in the chase for the Spaniard’s signature.

The British newspaper says that Arsenal is set on David Villa but has not yet made a formal offer, as his 31 years of age may be a negative point for the North Londoners who prefer to invest in younger players.

The newspaper also stated that Atletico Madrid presented a proposal of more than 10.5 Million euros to FC Barcelona for Villa, which was rejected by the Catalan giants.

Therefore, the paper explained that Villa’s failure to adapt at Barca and the rebuilding of the team after the humiliation in the Champions League against Bayern Munich puts David Villa out of the club’s future plans.

About Aaron

My name's Aaron and I'm a great Barça fan. I like to tell it like it is and if there is something I don't like about the club or something that needs addressing, you'll know!


  1. absolutely brilliant if villa could go to spurs… they’re crying out for a decent striker so if he went he could become a god at white hart lane so it would be good for him as well.

  2. I think villa must be offloaded in other for the brazillian young wonder boy to fit into that position.
