BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa (AFP) — Spain striker David Villa says he has made up his mind on which club he will move to, but refused to say who it was.
The Valancia star said his agent was working on the details.
"I only have one decision. My agent already knows what that is and he is working towards it. I am relaxed here," he told reporters here at the Confederations Cup.
The 27-year-old, who scored the goal that helped Spain beat Iraq 1-0 on Wednesday, has been linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United.
"There is no deadline on the subject, and I really do not have any more details as this whole thing is not totally dependent on me," he added.
Spanish media reported this week that Barcelona had tabled a 35-million-euro bid for the player.
Real Madrid, who have already bought superstars Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo this month, had been chasing Villa but were reported to have been put off by a 42-million-euro asking price.
Manchester United have been linked to him but he has said he would go to the English Premier League only if he could hook up with national teammate Fernando Torres at Liverpool, who have shown little interest so far.
Villa has been an integral member of the Spain team that hasn't lost since November 2006 and is also only one match away from equalling Brazil's record 35-match unbeaten run.
