BIO: David Villa Sanchez, nicknamed El Guaje (which means the KID in Asturian), is a Spanish footballer who currently plays for FC Barcelona and the Spanish national football team. Though his profile is that of a striker, he also operates as a winger. He went on to begin his footballing career at UP Langreo and when he turned 17 he joined the Mareo football school. He subsequently got his professional breakthrough at his local club Sporting de Gijon. With his goal tally nearly reaching 40 goals after spending two full seasons in Gijon's main team. The striker had no trouble adapting to playing at the higher level, netting 17 times in his first season at Zaragoza. Zaragoza reached the 2004 Copa del Rey final where he played a big part in the team's victory, scoring a crucial goal to put the Aragonese outfit 2–1 up against Real Madrid. This earned him a place in the 2004–05 UEFA Cup; this was Villa's first time playing in a European competition. He joined Valencia CF in 2005 for a transfer fee of €12 million and was part of the Valencia team that won the Copa del Rey in the 2007–08 season. In 2010 he moved to FC Barcelona for €40 million where he won his first La Liga and UEFA Champions League titles. Villa made his international debut in 2005. He has since participated in three major tournaments, becoming an integral member of the Spain teams that won Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup. He scored three goals at the 2006 World Cup, was the top scorer at Euro 2008 and earned the Silver Boot at the 2010 World Cup for his impressive statistics. He is the first Spanish player to ever reach 50 international goals and is Spain's all-time top goalscorer
