Barcelona striker Villa calm over Chelsea, Man City rumours

Barcelona striker David Villa isn't bothered about rumours linking him with a Premier League move.

Since the end of the campaign there has been transfer speculation about Villa's future at Barca, with English clubs Chelsea and Manchester City touted as possible destinations for Spain's all-time record goalscorer.

However, speaking at a promotional event, Villa said of those reports: "All that's been said hasn't bothered me because it isn't rumours or speculation, it's a lie.

"Hopefully I can retire at Barca because that would mean everything has been great for me.

"I would like to have the chance to retire at Barca even though I'm only 29. It would be very nice. I want to be at Barca as long as possible," he added in quotes reported on Barcelona's official website.
