City still keen on Barca star Yaya despite his agent's 'small club' jibe

Mark Hughes hasn't given up hope of convincing Yaya Toure to quit Barcelona for Manchester City.

The Ivory Coast midfielder's agent admits that Toure is frustrated by his lack of first-team football this season but suggested they would only consider offers from bigger clubs than City.

However, this has not deterred City boss Hughes from chasing the uncompromising holding player, according to Catalan newspaper Sport.

The ambitious Barclays Premier League Club enquired about Toure in the summer, only for the 26-year-old to sign a new deal with the Catalans.

But he could now be in the market after starting just four of Barca's 10 league matches this term.

City defender Kolo Toure would be keen to link up with his brother at Eastlands.

The move could see Barcelona renew their interest in Liverpool's Javier Mascherano (pictured right).
