– Barcelona striker David Villa
I always try to think of the present. I will go to the Confederations Cup and try to play a good role there.
We'll need to analyse many things during the summer and then we'll see. Right now I'm not thinking about anything else than playing football.
I have a contract with Barca and I've always said that I'm very happy here.
