Manchester City will join arch-rivals Manchester United in the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas if Yaya Toure decides to leave the Etihad Stadium in the summer.

Goal believe the Premier League champions are keeping a close eye on Fabregas’ situation at the Camp Nou due to Toure’s apparent unhappiness at the club.

Barcelona are said to be prepared to listen to offers for Fabregas this summer as the midfielder has failed to establish himself in the La Liga side’s engine room.

Fabregas’ former side Arsenal and Manchester United are both said to be interested in bringing the 27-year-old back to the Premier League, however Manchester City have the financial muscle to win the battle to land the central midfielder.

Toure is said to be flirting with the idea of a move to Ligue 1 moneybags Paris Saint-Germain after feeling unappreciated at Manchester City.

Fabregas would not be a like-for-like replacement to Toure, as he does not possess the same level of strength as the Ivorian international, but he is capable of running from box to box and has goals in his locker.

Manchester City’s interest in Fabregas could ignite a lengthy summer transfer tussle as Manchester United and Arsenal are unlikely to let the Citizens get their man without a fight.
