Barcelona striker David Villa is on course to returning to first-team action before the end of the season according to the striker.
This comes as a major boost for Barcelona, who could well be fighting against the likes of Real Madrid in the league and Champions League final.
At this moment, they require the services of their full strength squad and David Villa becomes more important at this juncture due to his stature within the team. The forward suffered a tibia fracture while playing for Barcelona in the Club World Cup in Japan.
Albert Luque has said that he expects David Villa to be part of the Euro 2012 squad for the Spanish national team only if he is in good form.
Spain coach Vicente del Bosque dropped Chelsea striker Fernando Torres after a poor run of form has not seen the former Liverpool striker score a goal since October.
Albert Luque thinks that Barcelona striker David Villa will also have the same fate if he does not prove his form in time for the Euro 2012. David Villa is currently recuperating from the tibia fracture he suffered earlier in the season while playing in the Club World Cup.
Barcelona striker David Villa has said that he is extremely optimistic about his chances for returning in time to the first-team action for the Euro 2012.

David Villa has finally been released from the hospital after the successful completion of his surgery on his fractured libia.
This is great news for him and his family with whom he was able to spend the festive season.
Barcelona and Spain have been dealt a blow after striker David Villa broke his leg playing in the FIFA Club World Cup. The 30-year-old fractured his left tibia in the run up to half-time in his side’s semi-final against Qatari side Al Sadd.
According to his club manager, Pep Guardiola, the kind of break the player suffered will keep him out for a “long time”.
“He will be out for a long time with this sort of break,” said Guardiola. He will return to Barcelona as soon as possible for an operation. It’s a massive blow for him and Barcelona.”
