Laporta Happy Barcelona Signed David Villa Before The World Cup

Outgoing Barcelona president Joan Laporta has said that the club has done great business with the signing of David Villa.

Spanish champions FC Barcelona coughed up £31 million for the former Valencia striker before the World Cup and given his form in South Africa, Laporta is convinced they’ve saved around £18 million in doing an early deal.

Laporta told reporters that : “What would Villa cost now? I would say another £18 million,”.

“Now, everyone is saying we were right to buy him before the World Cup.”
