Manchester City are continuing talks with Barcelona for midfielder Yaya Toure.

The Sunday Mirror says the midfielder, brother of City skipper Kolo, is refusing to be used as a makeweight in the Catalans’ bid to land Cesc Fabregas.

City are prepared to pay £25m – but that is £10m short of Barca’s valuation.

Eastlands officials hope the La Liga giants resurrect their interest in current British-record signing Robinho so that a player exchange can be agreed.
