Villa passes Chelsea audition in front of Abramovich

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to bid for Valencia striker David Villa.

Abramovich was won over by Villa after seeing him in action for Spain against Russia this week. Villa struck a superb hat-trick to reinforce Abramovich's admiration for the diminutive forward.

New Valencia coach Unai Emery is reluctant to lose his star man, however Villa is determined to leave the Mestalla after a difficult 12 months.
