Tobido agent: Did Barcelona want him for January?

The agent of Jean Clair Tobido admits there was little chance of a January move to Barcelona for the defender.

Tobido will leave Toulouse for Barca when he comes off contract on July 1.

Asked if there was any discussion about an immediate move, Bruno Satin told RMC: "Discussions for a transfer this winter? There was contact, if only in relation to the relationship between the two clubs.

"Naturally, FC Barcelona made contact to inform them that Jean-Clair had chosen to join them in July and indeed there were talks to anticipate his arrival."

Barca announced the signing of Tobido yesterday.
