Tidbits: Transfer rumours – Barcelona to sell Villa, Torres leaving Chelsea plus City’s X-mas party

The Cover on Marca: "Villa for sale"

If reports are to be believed, Barcelona want to sell David Villa as early as the January transfer window, or by the end of the season latest. He has recently been linked to several English clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool and Aston Villa. Think its true or not?  It is Marca after all, so take it with a pinch of salt..Watch this space.

Chelsea are ready to sell Fernando Torres for a mere £20-million. The former Liverpool striker never found his feet at Stamford Bridge and the club were supposedly going to loan him out, but now rumours have surfaced that the club are willing to cut their losses with the most expensive player in British football history, whoc cost them £50-million. I feel that Chelsea’s style of football was never  going to suit Torres. Maybe he’ll find better luck where he’s shipped off to next?

Manchester United’s Darren Fletcher is out for months due to a chronic bowel condition – Ulcerative Colitis. Injuries will be the biggest concern for Sir Alex as Vidic is out for 9-12 months with a knee injury.

City Striker Calos Tevez is a top target for title chasersTottenham Hotspur. The Argentine, who is in t=his homeland without permission from the club has reportedly been suffering from depression. Rumours were rife that he’s to be Italy bound for AC Milan, but Spurs have now entered the race for Tevez’ signature.

And City, just hours after losing their first league game to Chelsea, celebrated a dress-up Christmas Party at Anaya in London. Full marks for dedication given to their costumes:
