Villa signs four-year deal
David Villa has put pen-to-paper on a four-year contract at FC Barcelona with the option for a further season and a buy-out clause of €200 million.
At midday on Friday the latest addition to the Blaugrana ranks signed at the Camp Nou offices ahead
of being presented to the media and the supporters. El Guaje, as Villa is affectionately known,
inked the deal at 1.04pm and will remain with the Catalan giants until 2014 at least.
Alongside Villa were his agent and some family members as well as Barça president
Joan Laporta, vice-presidents Jaume Ferrer, Rafael Yuste and Albert Perrín, directors Josep Anton
Colomer and Magda Oranich, technical secretary Txiki Begiristain and director of football Raül
Laporta made a short speech in which he outlined the values of the club and welcomed Villa
before posing for photos with the group.
