MCFC close in on Yaya

City took another step towards the signing of Yaya Touré last night as FC Barcelona claimed on their website a deal had been agreed:
The Barcelona website confirmed: "In case of Toure, [Barcelona Director General Joan] Oliver has recognised an understanding between the club interested in the midfielder, Manchester City, and Barca, but the transfer cannot be made official yet."
This report in Sport says there was a four hour meeting in the Hotel Miramar in Barcelona yesterday involving Yaya, his agent Dmitri Selçuk and Garry Cook. Yaya then had a medical with MCFC staff in Mataró. Everything should be done by the end of the week.
