The agent of David Villa could return for Barcelona before the end of the season.

The Spain striker is recovering from a leg fracture suffered in December.

"It will depend on his recovery, but I think that at the end of April we will see him playing again," Victor Onate told Canal 9.

"David is great. Although people may find it strange, he is working harder than ever, even when he could play.

"He is very focused on returning as quickly as possible."
