Barcelona star Andres Iniesta has his fingers crossed that David Villa does not depart the club in January.

Spain's all-time top goalscorer has been in and out of Tito Vilanova's side since returning from a badly broken leg and has been linked with a winter shift to Chelsea or Arsenal but midfield guru Iniesta is adamant he wants him to remain at Camp Nou.

"I don't know if there's a chance (he could leave), I don't think so, although for me personally I wouldn't like it if he did, because Villa is a vital," he said.
