Manchester City are a step closer to signing Valencia's David Villa. Villas agents are flying to England later on in the week to meet City officials. The Valencia goal machine has a contract clause of around £120million but because of finical problems are strongly willing to consider City's offer which will be around £52million.
David Villa is one of the best strikers in the world so his wages will not come cheap either and look to be around £150,000 which would make him joint highest payed player in England with City's Robinho.
David Villa would be a super signing for Mark Hughes side and would defiantly be first choice ahead of summer signing Jo and out of form Benjani. This story is likely to be one of the main ones in January and wont go away till either club confirm something.
