Villarreal chief Jose Manuel Llaneza says they've done great business in landing the former Internacional striker Nilmar.

"Having a Brazil international is a luxury and if he is striker, much more," said Llaneza. "Nilmar is one of the regulars of the Selecao, which is historically the best in the world. He also has a good chance of going to the World Cup and to be a major influence there.

"He is a global star. To have him here is an honor."
