David Villa has been linked with a move to Liverpool for a very long time now. Ever since the days of Rafa Benitez, we all dreamt of a Villa – Torres partnership at Liverpool. Although we may not get to see that combination, we could be set for an even better one with Suarez and Villa upfront.
It is no secret that Liverpool have been struggling to score goals this season and we need more fire power upfront. Andy Carroll has not quite done enough for many fans right now as he was meant to be the partner upfront with Suarez who would fire us to success. Carroll may still be young and he has a lot of potential ahead of him but right now we need someone who can come straight into the starting lineup and fire goals for us. David Villa fits the bill perfectly.
It is being reported that the Barcelona striker has fallen out with Lionel Messi and thus he is finding himself on the bench more often these days. There is really only ever going to be one winner if you are to pick between Messi and Villa. But Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola insists that there is no rift between Messi and Villa as he said, “It is impossible to be an enemy of David, he is too nice a person.
“He is generous both in the way he plays football and also in his personal life. It is impossible not to get on well with him.”
But where there is smoke there is fire, there is a possibility that Barcelona may be ready to offload Villa and Liverpool have reportedly already made contact with Villa’s agent to find out if a move to Anfield would be possible.
It would be interesting to see if John Henry is willing to splash out another £30million to capture Villa having spent that kind of money on Carroll already. Do you think Liverpool should make a serious effort to sign Villa? If so, what then do we do with Andy Carroll?
