Villa returns to Barca squad

David Villa is back in the Barcelona squad for the first time since breaking his leg in December.

Coach Tito Vilanova named the forward in his squad for Barcelona's final two pre-season friendlies - against Manchester United and Dinamo Bucharest - before La Liga's season begins next weekend.

Villa, 30, missed the second half of last season after suffering the injury at the Club World Cup, ruling him out of Spain's Euro 2012 squad.

And team-mate Andres Iniesta said it was "a joy" to see Spain's all-time leading goalscorer back in the picture, adding: "He seems in very good shape after such a long and tough injury.

"It's a joy to see him train, because he is a key player. We hope that he can return to action soon and do what he best knows how to - which is score goals."
