Yaya is touted to be part of a makeweight deal in Barca bid for Fab. Its doubtful IMO because of Arsenal's reluctance to pay Yaya's wage demands (4 year deal @ £110K/week) . Hence Fab's will be a straight cash deal.
Yaya Touré will definitely be a great signing for City. He has the pace & ability to be a box to box midfielder - i.e. a world class midfielder. An ability to score (4 goals in 45 internationals, 4 in 75 at Barca) given the opportunity is a must in my book. Thats what was lacking for us ( de Jong doen't quite cut it) this past season. In his last game with Barca, Yaya showed that he has the ability to make great passes with his assists to Messi & Bojan.
IMO Barca is making a HUGE mistake by letting Yaya go ( i.e. starting or preferring Busquets over Yaya) in the same manner as letting Eto'o for Ibrahimović.
