Even though the 30-year-old Spain striker is just now recovering from the tibia fracture, it seems that he does not have lost a great deal of power in his legs. The 30-year-old striker suffered a tibia fracture while playing for Barcelona in the Club World Cup in Japan.

Due to the fact that Barcelona are expected to make significant changes to the attacking line-up, it is thought that David Villa could be sold in order to raise funds for the arrival of new players like Neymar. As a result, the former Valencia star is fighting for his future at the camp Nou. He has said that extremely eager to prove that he is still capable of delivering his best for Barcelona. Villa has been linked with a £ 20 million move to Liverpool in the past.

Barcelona will be facing German club Hamburg in the first pre-season friendly.
