Barcelona star set to join Man City

The 27-year-old has long been linked with a move to link up with his brother Kolo at City.

Agent Dimitri Seluk told Sport: “I think we will have a solution this week. In fact, I would say that (it will be done) on the first or second of July – maybe on the second because the first will be a very busy day at Barca with the change of president.”

Seluk is set to hold talks with new Barcelona president Sandro Rosell.

“Yes, we have to talk, but of course, the reality is not going to change in one moment,” he added.

“Yaya wants to play the important games and he knows that he will be an important player at Manchester City.

“It is not a money problem, as I have said 1,000 times, but a problem of (the lack of) confidence (that Barca have in him).”
