'Globoesporte' had claimed Yan Couto was about to sign for Barcelona. However, the same source is now reporting that Manchester City have taken the lead for the Brazilian's signing, doubling the Catalans' offer.
Yan Couto is destined to be one of the best players in Brazilian football. Arsenal have already followed him, and according to 'Globoesporte', Barca are also interested in him. In fact, they have now apparently started to negotiate with Coritiba to sign the talented defender.
