Toure agent warns Barcelona

Unsettled Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure - reportedly wanted by Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City - has inched closer to the Nou Camp exit door after his agent warned the Spanish champions he will leave if he is not handed more first-team football.

Toure has admitted he is unhappy with sitting on the bench and looks set to leave Barca in early 2010 after falling out of favour with boss Pep Guardiola.

The player’s agent, Dimitri Seluk, has demanded that the Spanish club resolve the situation or risk losing the 26-year-old during the January transfer window.

“The situation must change soon or the kid leaves Barcelona in January,” Seluk said in The Sun.

“Yaya is not on the bench and this situation isn’t helpful for them or us. We do not understand Barca’s motives.”

The Ivorian has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs including being reunited with younger brother Kolo at Eastlands.

Seluk has ruled out a move to Mark Hughes' side, but the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are also believed to be admirers of the former Monaco holding midfielder.

“If a club like Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester United are interested in the transfer window, then we are open to negotiation,” he said.
