Yaya Toure's agent claims the Barcelona midfielder has already signed a deal with a Barclays Premier League club although he remains tight-lipped on where the Ivory Coast international will be playing next season.
Toure has long been linked with a move to England with Manchester City, captained by older brother Kolo, thought to be leading the race for his signature.
City's cross-town rivals Manchester United are also reportedly interested, while Kolo's former club Arsenal have been monitoring him.
