Barcelona are convinced Manchester City and Chelsea want to take David Villa off their hands.

The Daily Mail says Barcelona are preparing to fund their £50million swoop for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas by offering Villa to Chelsea and Manchester City.

"(Pep) Guardiola has a list of players he is prepared to move on to give him more spending power in the transfer market, but Villa is definitely not on that list," a source revealed.

"Ideally, he wants to keep Villa – especially after the impact he made in his first campaign with Barca. He sees David as a big player as his side push for more trophies next season.

"But he also knows that he may have to sacrifice Villa to finance incoming deals. And Manchester City and Chelsea would be very happy to buy Villa."
