Barcelona are keeping tabs on David Silva's situation at Manchester City.

The midfielder has struggled to adjust to the pace of Premier League after moving to England from Valencia in the summer.

Sport says Barca are monitoring Silva's situation and have not ruled out moving for the player as early as the January market.

Barca would seek an initial loan deal similar to what they proposed to City for Robinho last season.
