David Villa Signs New Deal
The rumor that David Villa could be headed to Real Madrid is now finished.
Villa signed a new 6 year deal with Valencia which will earn him 4.4 million per season.
This signing comes only days after Valencia rejected a bid by Madrid on Villa of over 60 million euro.
Villa was quoted as saying, "Today is a very happy day for me. In the last month and a half, a lot of things have happened around me and in my head. I am proud of what I have done because I didn't know how I was going to react."
Villa scored 22 goals for Valencia last season, and was the leading scorer in the Euro 08 tournament.
