There must have been some chemistry between Messi & Villa at the adidas f50 adiZero launch last week!
No sooner had Barcelona wrapped up their most recent La Liga victory, have they signed Valencia and Spain’s David Villa.
For a reported fee of £34.2 Million, the adidas f50 adiZero wearer hasn’t come cheap – but Barcelona will hope that Villa will bring the team more goals than the unsettled Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Signed on a 4-year-contract Villa will, in theory, be playing at the Camp Nou until he is 32, giving the Catalan giants his best years of service.
A statement on Barcelona’s official website read: “FC Barcelona and Valencia CF closed a 40million euro deal for Spanish striker David Villa on Wednesday morning.
“The Spanish international is due in Barcelona on Thursday evening and will have a medical on Friday morning. Villa will then be officially unveiled as a Barca player.”
