David Villa has been told that he can leave Barcelona in the summer transfer window if he wants to, reports talkSPORT.
Villa’s future at the Nou Camp has been in doubt for some time now as he doesn’t seem to be one of their first-choice strikers at the moment.
The La Liga-leaders might be looking at a new front-man in the summer and Villa is a high earner, so offloading him could suit the Catalan giants.
The player knows that he needs to be playing first-team football on a regular basis at this stage of his career and Arsenal seem to be leading the way as a potential new club for him.
Few can argue with his scoring record as he is Spain’s all-time leading scorer and has proven he can find the net at the highest level.
Many believe that the Spain international is just the kind of player that the Gunners need and people would love to see what he can do in the English Premier League.
The story might change a bit over the next few months, but if David Villa is not playing football, he needs to find himself a new club, or he is in danger of finishing his career on the bench week-in, week-out.
