New York Red Bulls look to have got themselves a new rival, with New York City FC due to join the MLS at the start of next season.

Atletico Madrid’s David Villa was today confirmed as their first signing, with Frank Lampard expected to join him from Chelsea.

It didn’t take long for Manchester City linked New York City FC to prop up a big billboard in New York with David Villa on it.

The billboard which says ‘Welcome to New York’ is eerily similar to Manchester City’s controversial ‘Welcome to Manchester’ billboard with Carlos Tevez.
