Xavi: David Villa 10-star signing for Barcelona

Xavi has welcomed Barcelona's capture of Valencia striker David Villa. The Barca midfielder hopes to win the World Cup this summer with his new teammate.

"Villa is here to make a difference, it is a pleasure to have Villa in any team," said Xavi. "This is fantastic news. He is a great player and a great goal scorer.

"This is a ten out of ten signing by Barcelona.

"You could say he has similar characteristics to Samuel Eto'o."

On Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas, Xavi added: "Villa and Cesc, if he comes too, are welcome and will continue the football that characterizes us and they'll help us achieve further success."
