The contract of Villa

Catalan sports paper Sport reveals today what they claim to be the contract that has been agreed upon between Barcelona and Valencia forward and Spanish international David Villa (27).

If an agreement with Valencia can be reached, Villa would sign a five-year deal - until 2014 - worth 7,5 million euro a year.

The Spanish striker could get another possible two million euro in incentives based on four parameters: 60 per cent of the games played, winning the Liga, winning the Champions League and winning the Copa (together with one of the other trophies). The buyout clause of Villa would be 120 million euro°.

seems to much to me!
why does he need to earn more than iniesta!

sashi said...

good Lord!!! lets just wrap this thing and move on to signing a left winger!!! but i wished Silva moved along with Villa with us. would've been a great buy. tooo bad tat wont happen. Welcome Villa! hope this becomes official sooon.

Valencia doesn't seem to be happy that we're doing all this behind their back. Don't think they will let him go easily...

Barcelona papers shouldn't publish these things, in my opinion. It harms the club.

barca4life said...

Valencia must be pretty pissed off that this point that we are waving about contracts that villa will be offered. I dont like the way we have gone about this, these sorts of things should be kept private by the club until after we sign villa.

not good news at all

woo sah said...

well an agreement is all nice and all but it don't mean a thing until valencia has approved...and i'm pretty sure that won't be a very nice walk in the park.
IF this goes through i will be a very happy man...along with another LB signing.
and please please...crosas back please!

fcbee said...

He's not going to England, vlae. Don't worry. He has said it several times: he wants to stay in Spain.

Th only ones we should worry about were Madrid but they have Benzema now, so they gave up on Villa. Well, there's one club left we should worry about: Valencia...

Messi108 said...

Good Lord. AWESOMEE !!

Please Sign Villa ASAP.

I really don't like this type of negotiating, as one said, it doesn't mean anything until valencia aproves it. We spend weaks negotiating with players and when we came to speak with his club they say he is not for sale (read villa) or put astronomic transfer price (read filipe). Barca should really start negotating with teams first and with the players. There is no player that wouldn't play for barca, except bilal ribery.
One more thing, these catalan newspaper sucks, everyday we buy some player, according to them, but all I know that today is 02.07.2009 and we haven't bought anyone, and believe me we need to strenghten our squad.

vlae, you should know one thing. tribalfootball.com is THE MOST unreliable source in the world.

there are news quoting valencias board saying: "there hasn't been negotiations with barcelona regarding villa at all."

they want to keep him and silva, too

Anonymous said...

so is laporta crazy. it seems to me these days: everything he said in the last month was totally out of touch with reality

Dolce said...

Now the reports say that Valencia chiefs are not keen on Keirrison because they want straight cash deal instead. And Valencia president keeps saying that there are no negotiations with Barcelona for Villa. Barca should sign Villa now because otherwise they have to wait Eto'os decision, and nothing indicates that Eto'o would be in a hurry to renew his deal. I think that Villa and Eto'o could play in the same team because the season is long and there are Nations cup, injuries, suspensions and Pep´s rotation policy. Barca wont buy 4-5 top players this summer and by keeping Eto'o(if he signs a new deal) and signing Villa the team could forget the left winger and spend that same money on Mascherano or Cesc.

hadi said...

I won't believe any news of villa joining barca till its become official...cuz Lloriente is playing a hard ball over him and I affraid that barca become frustrated and forget about villa....just cross your fingers and hope barca sign him...

blaugrana1 said...

Ribery " i want to leave bayern fro madrid and nothing else!"

Madrdi r gna prepare an offer for bayern now! dammit barca u slacked off BIG time during this transfer window.

This board sux at back to back titles...remember the season after we won the double????????? WHY? its coz we thought we had the perfect team and made no additions to our squad! The same thing now! we won the treble yaaa but if we wana win smethin next season we shud get players !

And my god i have never seen cheaper fans than barca !!! "Oh no i will not pay more than 20mill for this guy" or "no he's too expensive we can find better"!!! As if the money is cmin out of ure own pockets!

barca4life said...

Sigh valencia are saying there are no negotiations with barca for villa.

Anonymous said...

thats fantastic news.hope valencia dont mess it up if its true.any ida who barca might be goen for as compition for henry?i agree with you sashi,it would off been nice to get silva too or even matta

barca4life said...

Actually the year we won the double in 06 was a back to back la liga title for us.

blaugrana1 said...

Benzema, Huntelaar, RVN, Raul, Ronaldo, Kaka, Higuain, Snieder, Robben.......and Ribery soon

I gotta admitt mardid has way more attacking power than barca..but our midfield and defence is far better!

And every1 else has to admit that their attacking players r outstanding!!

hadi said...

From now on, I'm not gonna believe anything untill Its become official... Barca didn't sign anyone yet and we are in the bad situation...I hope in the end they sign Villa, Keirrison, Filipe, Bruno Alves, Zhirkov/Robinho OR WE R IN DEEP TROUBLE!

hawk_barca_4_life said...

ya 3 signing r must
a left winger
cover for xavi
left back

promote the barca b guys for defensive mids and other positions

if etoo goes we need villa

SJP said...

i hope this goes thru, valencia are just being difficult as not so long ago they were our equals. i hate to say it but i hope etoo goes now or fires his agent, either way villa would be a good signing.

we dont want to spend loads on players as that is not what barca are about and as for RM the only real threat is kaka, benzema is unproven in la liga and was crap last year, the dutch players aren't exactly gonna feel wanted by the club and sneijder is the only decent one anyway. kaka-benzema-ronaldo is still not better than messi-etoo/vila-henry even though they have spent a quarter of a billion euros.

as for a repeat of 2007, not gonna happen while pep is in charge, all we need is to improve the quality of the overall squad, WE dont need to buy lots of star players, WE already have them.

SJP said...

hope we get villa regardless of what happens with etoo.

we dont spend big on players. RM spent a quarter of a billion to try and compete with us, WE dont need to buy lots of star players, WE already have them.

kaka-benzema-ronaldo is still not better than messi-etoo/villa-henry and our squad is still better. RM HAVE to win something this year otherwise they will be a laughing stock, the pressure is all on them.

Xaviniesta said...

omg madrid on paper do not have a "better" attacking force than barca. how can u guys even say that lol. how many goals have henry-etoo-messi netted this season compared to their possible ronaldo-benzema-kaka? seriously i love the exaggeration i'm reading on here. me personally i'll just stand back and let this transfer season play out then i will criticize or praise depending on the final line up. madrid have no choice but to get rid of a few players anyway. we'll see who they have on the roster then. like it or not madrid admirers the pressure is on them, they have to rebuild to be able to compete for all titles again. i just want barca to plug up the weak positions and get good backups, i dont expect and want stars just solid ppl who will do the job.

barca4life said...

Ok Messi > Ronaldo
Iniesta = Kaka
Benzema ? Villa/Etoo

but after that what does our depth look like?

Bojan < Huntelaar (Right now not in the future)

Pedro < Raul
Hleb < Higuain
Jeffren < Ribery

See the problem now?

Xaviniesta said...

@barca4life,

what makes you think that iniesta < kaka? and how is bojan < huntelaar, cos he scored all those goals in eredivisie? lol thats past history dude. how he perform with madrid wasnt he a flop whc is why if talks are to be belived they want to offload him? lol

as for your concerns with depth, we are still completing our transfers. thats my only pt we need to wait see what happens + i didnt know ribery with madrid is official but maybe you have inside info yes?

its all speculative at this point. i wont stress seeing as i cant possibly influence anything where i'm at but you're free to do so obviously :D

barca4life said...

I said iniesta = kaka. huntelaar had a stretch of 7 goals in 8 games last season i believe

Xaviniesta said...

ah yes my bad so iniesta = kaka well hes no wpoty but at the rate he is improving we may have 3 of the worlds best in our team very soon (not saying ofc we dont already have them atm hehe :P) as for huntelaar ah yes 7 goals very nice esp if you came in for 20 mil. now lets see bojan: in la liga played 23 games 17 as sub scored 2 assisted 14, in copa played 9 scored 5 assisted 6, in cl played 9 scored 3 assisted 4, and hes what 18? thought those are nice figures as well esp since we didnt cough out 20 mil for him. dont get me wrong tho am not sayin you shouldnt like huntelaar ;)

Xaviniesta said...

*cough up

barca4life said...

I said right now huntelaar is better, bojan is still 19 huntelaar is developed already. In a few years bojan will pass him back.

Xaviniesta said...

ok good to hear that but seriously huntelaar isnt "better" than bojan come on lol. age 17 bojan already playing top flight footy making his mark too netted 12 goals on 1st yr hows that so where was hunte then but umm nways no prob if you like him lol jus that bojan is the better player imo just check those stats he doesnt only score goals he sets up a lot of them so ehh. hunte has good finishing sure but he is a poacher not all around forward he wouldnt suit barca game, i prefer more versatility like how barca molds our players and um bojans not quite 19 yet so..

barca4life said...

I disagree that bojan is better right now. Bojan is more versatile i agree and bojan has better potential but i'd have to give the edge to huntelaar because he has more experience and has scored a few more goals in a competitive league than bojan. Thats all.

Leo10 said...

Everyone needs to forget about Madrid, remembering that we beat them 6-2, them buying 3 or 4 great strikers is doing nothing, Their theory is that they will buy strikers so they can score more goals then 6 goals against us! If they hadnt of bought the players they have and in turn bought great defenders then we should be worried. Feel free to make that quote of the day pep ;)

woo sah said...

forget about what madrid are doing and let's focus on us instead.
and because this season's transfer window is all screwed cuz of stupid EE we MUST concede that we may not end up with the preferred or necessary replacements/reinforcements...and even tho i know how imperative it is to bring in new faces if we don't/can't we must have faith in the players we already have.
there's no use complaining here about how we want this or that.

also...forget a winger. henry has one more solid season left and then bojan will take over the LW. like i mentioned before...i think its safe to assume that eto'o cannot be counted even if he stays. there has been a loss of trust between player and club. so we need a CF and a LB...but no aguero. why? cuz we already have keirrison. and cover for xavi...crosas would be my ideal rather than cesc.
happy times!
(:

Xaviniesta said...

@barca4life lol no problem dude keep liking JKH, just one thing though, if experience and goal scoring prowess is your standard then would you say huntelaar is not only better than Bojan but also Messi? lol cos he has more experience and scored so much more than him riight? haha jp i do get your pt about the subs but nways there's so much hype around huntelaar and way i see it he still has to deliver fully, regardless of how competitive you think it is eredivisie is levels below la liga, and whether you think hes a rookie or not i think bojan is crazy good considering we play him out of his natural position, that many clubs want him(incl surprise surprise ajax!) is proof enough :D
