Tottenham to sign David Villa this week
Barcelona striker David Villa will complete his move to Tottenham this week after he agreed a deal in principle.
The two clubs now need to set a fee, which they have not yet been able to do, according to reports in the Mirror.
Barca value the Spain international at £8.6 million, while Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is reluctant to meet that asking price.
Levy is gambling on the Catalan side’s determination to shift Villa’s £100,000 a week wages off their salary bill forcing them to accept a lower offer.
The fact that he only has a year left on his contract will also encourage Barca to do business.
