I have a soft spot for Valencia. I hope they pick up form and pick up the pieces next season. Actually, Valencia was very close to relegation for some time. Thankfully they ended in 10th place, making the leap when it was needed most. Good for them, I hope they come out on top, and I would love Villa at United, but I wouldn't blame him for staying over there. Such a talented player, he is easily my favourite Spanish player.

I think they do. He is a good player but with Villa and Sillva in there team he must find it hard to get in. I wouldn't mind him at Benfica to be honest...

Villa is absolutely amazing. What really disgusts me is that Valencia have so much talent and yet this past season has been such an utter disgrace, and waste of talent. I really hate the management. I really hope Valencia picks up form.

With his recent performance for Portugal I can't see many teams wanting to sign him...
