Barcelona consider moves for Manchester City duo

Manchester City duo Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany have emerged as summer targets for Barcelona as the Catalan giants draw up a list of potential acquisitions for the transfer window.

Barcelona have identified the capture of a new centre-back as a priority come the end of the season and, according to The Mirror, the Camp Nou club will move for Kompany if they are unable to sign first choice target Mats Hummels from Borussia Dortmund.

Manchester City, however, have no intention of entertaining any offers for their captain, and will do all they can to keep Kompany at the Etihad Stadium if Barcelona make an approach for the 26-year-old Belgian.

Barcelona, meanwhile, are keen to retain the services of David Villa for next season but, if the Spanish striker leaves the club, a move for Aguero could reportedly be forthcoming from the Primera Division leaders.

Villa has frequently been linked with a transfer away from Barcelona, with Arsenal credited to have a particular interest in 31-year-old, although a recent upturn in form could reportedly see the Spain international handed a new contract.

Aguero, like Kompany, is a much valued member of Roberto Mancini's Manchester City squad, and allowing the Argentina striker to leave the club is unlikely to even cross the mind of the club's hierarchy.

The 24-year-old, meanwhile, could be joined at Manchester City this summer by his replacement at Atletico Madrid, Radamel Falcao.
