Barcelona are set to encourage Premier League offers for striker David Villa.

Barca are actively pursuing Tottenham star Gareth Bale - but need to sell to fund any January bid for the Welsh flyer.

According to reports Barcelona are considering selling Villa following an alleged bust-up with Lionel Messi.

Chelsea were in contact with Barca last month for Villa, while Liverpool have been in talks with the player's camp in recent days.
