Barcelona midfielder Seydou Keita is set to be the subject of a three-way battle between Manchester City, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain according to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

The 31-year-old joined Barcelona in 2008 from fellow La Liga club Sevilla, but it appears he could be allowed to leave the Camp Nou for the right price.

Keita’s potential availability has alerted a number of sides, with English Premier League giants Manchester City keen on the Mali man’s experience, while AC Milan believe the player could strengthen their midfield.

Paris Saint-Germain meanwhile are long-time admirers of Keita and, with the midfielder having turned out for Marseille, Lens and Lorient in France, are well aware of his experience.

Keita is under contract with Barcelona until 2014 and therefore it is Josep Guardiola’s side who remain in the driving seat over his future.

The prospect of regular first team football and one final big payday may well be enough to cause Keita to consider exiting the European Champions.
