Barcelona management are weighing up selling Eric Abidal at the end of the season.

El Mundo Deportivo says Barca coach Pep Guardiola and sports director Txiki Begiristain have concerns over Abidal's attacking qualities and want to bring in a left-sided wing-back who can match the dynamism of Daniel Alves.

Sylvinho has impressed when called on this season, but at 35 he is unlikely to go around again at the Nou Camp next term.

Lyon are following Abidal and Barca are prepared to sell for the right price.
