According to Spanish radio station, Cadena COPE’s ‘El Partido de las 12′, Villa’s current contract with the La Liga champions will expire on 30th June and while the Spanish international has an option to renew for another year, he will forgo that option and make a move to the United States.

Villa joined Atletico Marid from Barcelona last summer, but was originally brought to Barcelona from Valencia by current Manchester City directors Txiki Bergeristain and Fernan Soriano, who have convinced Spain’s all-time leading scorer to become the face of their new franchise in their inagural season.

UPDATE: Sources close to ISF have confirmed that Major League Soccer have begun a massive marketing campaign to welcome David Villa to New York City FC, including mass production of his official shirt.

Our source also states that the two sides have been working on the deal for over a year and that the official announcement will come this coming Sunday or Monday.

We will report more details as they become available.
