David Villa is convinced he'll get back to his best at Barcelona.

The striker now feels ready to go and is desperate for pre-season training to begin.

He told El Mundo Deportivo: "This is the summer I have most desire for the holidays to end and to be able to go to work already. It is also the summer I have enjoyed least.

"I have passed a check-up with the Barcelona doctors and I am desperate to return to normal training with my team-mates, not training separately."
