Barcelona chief Txiki: I'll only be there to see Man City play

Barcelona sports director Txiki Begiristain insists he is in Abu Dhabi today only to "watch" the friendly between Manchester City and the UAE.

Begiristain is expected to hold more talks with City officials about a January deal for Robinho, but before getting on his flight, he denied any such meetings were scheduled.

"I will not meet with City. We are respectful and have not yet decided on who is to come or even if someone is to come," said Begiristain.

"The decision will be made in talks between myself and Pep (Guardiola) and we haven't held that meeting as yet. Therefore, I'm going to watch the match with City and nothing else."
