READ MY MIND: WE CAN'T LOSE YAYA

Alarm bells should be ringing in the Camp Nou: Yaya Toure's agent has hinted, once again, that his client is considering a move away from the Catalan team. His agent, the annoying Mr Selyuk said: 'My client has a 90% chance of leaving FC Barcelona this summer. He hasn't played as much as he deserved this year, even though he is the best player in the world in his position. He can play in defense or as an attacking midfielder.'

Let's just say that I can't stand it when football agents start talking rubbish to get a new contract or try to convince players to move teams, only so that they can get a percentage of another transfer fee. But, thinking about his words from a Barça fan perspective, I am going to have to agree with the essence of what he says: Toure actually has been key to Guardiola's team in many accasions - I am sure you remember last year's Champions League semifinal against Chelsea and the final against Manchester United, when he had to play as a centre back - He was impressive. Not that long ago, Yaya started against Inter Milan in the most important game of our season. I would choose Toure before Sergio Busquets any time.

Selyuk also said: 'Yaya is happy at Barça, but most major European teams want him. Anyway, Arsenal are very interested and something may be agreed with Arsene Wenger soon.' I really hope the Ivory Coast star decides to stay with us next season.
