    Barcelona's Toure happy with Man City option

    Yaya Toure's head has been turned by big-spending Manchester City's interest.

    Marca says City are offering the Ivory Coast midfielder £6 million-a-year to quit Barcelona this month.

    Toure is prepared to stay with Barca, but will seek a move away in June if they continue to refuse to discuss new terms with his agent, Dimitri Seyluk.

    Barca sports chief Txiki Begiristain promised last year that an improved contract would be offered to Toure, but nothing ever arrived. The midfielder will quit the Nou Camp if they same happens in the first-half of 2009.

    For his part, Barca coach Pep Guardiola doesn't regard Toure as a "great player" and rates youngster Sergio Busquets ahead of the Ivorian.
