Ferrer hints at Barcelona deal for Villa

Valencia were taken over by a consortium last week and the new owners are not prepared to sell Villa or David Silva.

“He is a great player,” Ferrer told RAC-1. “But at the moment I am not sure who is in charge at Valencia.

“Txiki Begiristain (director of football) is dealing with negotiations and I am confident that everything will turn out the way that the club wants it to in the end.

“Things will be sorted out in the next few days or weeks.”
