David Villa


Recommended Posts

If we are interested, and well we should be, then surely we can get him for less than 20 million?

Im guessing he wants to leave, and enough clubs have taken advantage of our financial situation (ie we've got more money than sense) so why not do it to someone else for once. It's not our fault they're struggling.

15 mill I say, and not a penny more!

Villa and Anelka would be a cracking strike force.

I reckon £20million is a fair price for a player of his quality, of course I'd prefer to get him cheaper but I'm pretty sure he's got a massive buy out clause written in his contract, so £20million wouldn't be too bad a deal.

Would rather Aguero but think he will go to Liverpool to partner Torres. Would make them very good up front.

Where did you hear that?

I too haven't heard of any such rumor....not even on tribalfootball. 317.gif

I'd prefer Aguero too instead of David Villa.

Footballing career

Early career: Independiente

Agüero started playing for Argentine First Division Club Independiente becoming the youngest player to debut in the Argentine First Division at only 15 years and 35 days (On July 7, 2003, against Club Atlético San Lorenzo), breaking the record previously established by Argentine legend Diego Maradona.

After the 2005-06 season Kun Agüero transferred to Spanish club Atlético Madrid, and is considered by the world press an up-and-coming talent, having been the top goalscorer for the Argentina national under-20 football team, in the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup. He made his senior debut for Argentina in a friendly with Brazil national football team played at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on September 3, 2006.

His nickname comes from his resemblance to boy anime characters, with -kun being the relevant Japanese honorific.

Transfer to Atlético Madrid

Due to his performance, especially during the 2005 Torneo Apertura, the young star attracted the interest of several top European clubs.

In April 2006, it was reported that Atlético Madrid had "pulled off a stunning transfer coup in the signing of Independiente striker Sergio Agüero". That same day, Independiente denied the reports, but the player himself later told Argentinian television, "Although I still don't know what's going to happen to me, this could have been my last goal and my last game for Independiente".

On May 29, 2006, it was announced at a news conference that Atlético Madrid had completed a deal to sign the striker for an unknown fee, which is believed to be a 15 Millon. Other clubs interested in signing the player included Bayern Munich, Palermo and Liverpool.

On 31st May 2006, Atlético Madrid confirmed that Sergio Agüero has signed a six year contract with the club after negotiating a transfer fee of 20 million euros with Independiente[4], thus making Agüero the club's most expensive player of all time.

On the 13th of December 2006, Atlético played a Copa Del Rey match against Levante. They had lost the first leg at home 1-0. Until the 91st minute it looked like disappointment for Atlético, but then Agüero shot past Levante's goalkeeper from a difficult angle, scoring his first Copa del Rey goal. As a result of that goal, Atlético proceeded to extra time which ended in a draw, and then won the penalty shootout 4-2, where Agüero also verified the victory by scoring the last goal to 4-2.

However, Agüero's greatest moment in the Atlético shirt was an equalising goal in the Camp Nou against big rivals Barcelona, in a match which finished 1-1. "Kun" made an excellent run across Puyol and received a through-ball, before slotting past Valdes in the Barca goal. That was his fifth goal for Atlético, number four in La Liga.

After an inconsistent debut season with Atlético, where he was used sparingly to partner the now departed Fernando Torres, Aguero has started the new 2007-08 season in style. His new partnership with Diego Forlán has already as of October 27th brought 16 goals in all competitions, becoming the second most prolific attacking partnership in Europe for the 2007-2008 season.

International career

At the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada, he scored twice and helped setup 3 goals in a 6-0 win over Panama in the second game of the group stage of the tournament. Agüero then scored the only goal in Argentina's third match against North Korea from a free kick. Having qualified to the round of 16, he scored 2 of the 3 goals against Poland that would eventually give them the win (3-1)to advance. Argentina defeated Mexico in the quarter finals and Chile in the semis, and faced the Czech Republic in the finals. Agüero captained and scored the equaliser in the 62 minute, leading to a 2-1 victory. In addition, Agüero won the Golden Boot for the tournament with his 6 goals, and the Golden Ball as the best player of the tournament.

aguero is different, more naturally a player to drop deep and run with the ball (villa for me is unique as he can either play either on the shoulder or as the player who looks for the ball and runs). aguero looks extremely promising, I prefer him to say tevez as for me he's more aware, more willing to play one touch, which I like. I would not be opposed to seeing either here, but £20m for villa would be more than a fair price from our point of view.

he doesn't say anything about snubbing us, only that arsenal play the football most suited to him.

and he's right, but who's to say we will be playing the same way next season?

if anything, it's good news- previously he has been reluctant to leave spain.

David Villa has had a very serious approach from Chelsea and things are developing on that front, but they are not the only team that is interested.

The player is in no rush, but at this particular moment the most advanced offer that he has is from Chelsea. I think he is also waiting to hear from Real Madrid who showed their interest in him earlier in the season and basically told him to wait for an offer from them before he chooses anybody else.

The way Valencia are at the moment some of the players they have maybe looking for a new club, Villa has openely come out to admit that he wants away from the club. I believe, well i heared it somewhere on this forum that we are looking for a new winger, they have the likes of Silva and Joaquin, both top quality wingers we could look at.

But looks we are defaintly in for David Villa.
