Villa focused on Valencia amid transfer talk

David Villa is focused on helping Valencia finish in the top four, amid claims that the striker will be sold in the summer.

The free-scoring striker has already put Spain's game against England behind him and was brought back to reality by questions about the delicate financial situation at Mestalla.

Reports suggest that Valencia will have to sell several players in the summer or risk further complications and Villa has already been linked with a move to Juventus and Barcelona.

"I will think and decide about things if it ever happened. Nobody has said to me that they want to sell me, nor that they are going to give me away or try and tie me down," he told AS.

"It is all supposition and nobody knows for certain what will happen. I continue to think about playing and there is still plenty to do this year. But I am not going to talk about things that could or could not happen."

"It is obvious that I am the one scoring the most goals because I am the one playing furthest forward. But with a squad containing so much quality, it is diffiuclt to say we rely on me or anyone else," he continued.

Playing for Spain is a welcome distraction for Villa and he believes that they have the best national side in world football, but refused to predict they will win the World Cup next year.

"The results, the performances and the statistics say it all. I honestly believe that we are the best national team in the world. But it is difficult to say we can win the World Cup, we have not even qualified yet," he said.

"I think that every area of the Spanish side is well covered and every player has great potential. We have two great goalkeepers, very strong defenders, the best midfield in the world and the ability to score goals.

"We all know that the compliments are being made because we deserve them. Everyone is saying only good things about the team at the moment, but we have to continue to play well and keep our feet on the ground.

"Now I am just looking to the game against Malaga and want to try and score and help my team to win. Wednesday was a good day against England, but now I have to forget that and focus on Valencia.

"I have played for Spain for a long time and have always had the contrast, but it is easier to change your mindset after a while.

"For me, everything with the Spanish team finished on Wednesday night and now I am thinking about Valencia and three points that will allow us to stay in fourth place."
