    Barcelona Won't Sell Yaya Toure To Manchester City... Yet

    Sparky and his Arab bosses must be patient in their pursuit of Barca's Ivorian star...

    The Daily Mail claims that Manchester City will be forced to wait until the end of the season before making a move for Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure.

    Rival tabloid The Sun yesterday said that the Sky Blues had launched a £24 million bid for the 25-year-old holding player, who has often been compared to former Arsenal star Patrick Vieira.

    But the latest reports suggest that the Blaugrana will not even entertain the thought of selling Toure until the summer, which leaves the Citizens in something of a pickle.

    Mark Hughes, the Eastlands club's manager, is eager to draft in defence-minded player to complement the likes of Stephen Ireland and Vincent Kompany in the centre of midfield.

    Marcos Senna and Lassana Diarra have both snubbed City, while the speculation surrounding Internazionale's Argentine middle-man, Esteban Cambiasso, has died down in recent weeks.
