Valencia Turned down €42m Bid for David Villa by Real Madrid, Barcelona

During Summer 2009 transfer window, speculation was rife that Valencia striker David Villa would join either Real Madrid or Barcelona. However, Valencia later on made Villa unavailable for sale in Summer. Now, Manuel Llorente, president of Valencia, has recently revealed that he turned down €42 million offer for the striker from both the clubs.

First, Real Madrid approached the offer in order to acquire the service of Villa, but Llorente initially wanted a swap deal by which Alvaro Negredo and Esteban Granero would join Valencia and Villa would move to Real Madrid. Later on, Valencia was keen on a deal worth €30m and Negredo, in exchange of Villa. However, Real Madrid did not agree on the deal. Barcelona then stepped up with the same offer, but Valencia turned it down and announced that they would not sell Villa.
