fanatix tickets – El Clasico tickets are still available for the biggest derby match in Europe.
Real Madrid vs Barcelona tickets are on sale for this massive La Liga clash at the Bernabeu on March 3rd.
Odds were dramatically shortened at bookmakers across the UK after a sudden burst of bets from punters sure that the deal will go through.
Barcelona have repeatedly issued strong denials that Villa would be sold to any club in the January transfer window, but the bookies are rarely wrong.
With just hours to go then, could Arsenal still sign David Villa – the record goalscorer in the history of the Spain national team?

Villa, Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott are great forwards with different attributes, and Arsene Wenger would be able to unleash different players depending on the opposition.
