David Villa pleads for Barcelona exit Arsenal and Manchester City target David Villa has pleaded with Barcelona to grant him a move away from the Camp Nou in the January transfer window, according to Spanish newspaper Sport. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was heavily linked with a move for the Spain striker earlier in the month, while Roberto Mancini has also been linked with an interest in taking him to the Etihad Stadium. It was assumed any chance of signing Villa had ended when Barcelona president Joan Laporta denied the 31-year-old would be leaving the Catalan club and manager Tito Vilanova echoed those claims. The report in Sport now claims Villa has actually asked to leave Barcelona and held a meeting with Vilanova to make his wishes clear. It claims Spain’s all-time leading goalscorer is tired of only being a bit-part player under Vilanova and is keen to take advantage of the interest in him from Premier League sides Arsenal and Manchester City in the window.

•HOW Pep Guardiola GOT THE BARCA TEAM WINNING + GUARDIOLA LOVE FOR HIS PLAYERS ON OFF-FIELD ISSUES. Frank Rijkaard’s Barcelona were suffering an unstoppable decline into decadence, the dressing room lacking discipline and spirit. Ronaldinho had lost his status as the most exciting player on the planet, the president Joan Laporta had only just survived in office and Catalan self-esteem was at its lowest ebb for decades. At that point Pep Guardiola was appointed first-team coach of FC Barcelona. Two trophy-less years had passed them by. A change was needed. Important decisions had to be made.

As he made his way to the room, Pep repeatedly told himself: “Be yourself. Be yourself.” He felt that he had been through a similar experience at least once before, with the [Barc ...
Liga - Guardiola calms waters ahead of final Outgoing Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola sought to make the succession of his number two Tito Vilanova as smooth as possible as he gave his last Nou Camp news conference, ahead of the Copa del Rey final. Guardiola has the chance to exit the club with the 14th trophy of his four-year reign if Barca can beat Athletic Bilbao at the Calderon in Madrid on Friday. The build up to his departure has been dominated by media rumours that he was unhappy with the way club handled the news that his friend and assistant Vilanova was to succeed him, with suggestions that he did not know. This has led to sniping between the former president Joan Laporta and incumbent Sandro Rosell that has threatened to de-stabilise the club. "After being knocked out by Chelsea I rang Tito and I told him the moment had arrived and that they were going to offer him the position, and that he should do what he thought best," Guardiola said referring to their Champions League semi-final exit. "Who a ...
