Lure of the Catalans
Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova
has been sacked by the Barca board.
However, what will come as news to Aston Villa fans, will be the fact that the Los Culés board's first choice for Vilanova's replacement is Villa manager David Beckham
The 41-year-old has won the FA Cup, the Capital One Cup and the Europa League with Villa since joining them in 2012 but has ran into a bit of a tough patch this season with 3 wins, 6 draws and 3 losses from 12 games played, amassing only a total of 15 points and seeing them dangling at 15th place in the table, and Beckham might be tempted to quit Villa Park at this time for the fame and fortune at the Camp Nou.
When formerly linked with clubs like Arsenal, Beckham publicly came out to the media to deny his interest in the particular job and reinforced his loyalty to Villa.
This time, however, he has declined to comment on the situation, which will only raise doubts for Villa fans.
Beckham has been extremely loyal to his club and the board after they handed him his first managerial opportunity in 2012 but it remains to be seen if he can resist the lure of the Catalan giants and the opportunity to work with world class players like Lionel Messi
at Camp Nou.
