Skirge Posted May 8, 2007 Share Posted May 8, 2007 Would take him ? its a no for me! Manchester City will sell Joey Barton if they receive an offer of £5.5million, according to the midfielder's agent Willie McKay. The England international has seemingly played his last game at Eastlands after being fined and suspended for the rest of the season after an ugly training ground bust-up with Ousmane Dabo. The Frenchman has made an official complaint to police after receiving hospital treatment for his injuries in the latest incident to cloud Barton's career at City. The club are now prepared to cut the troublesome star loose, and McKay has revealed they will listen to any offers which match the £5.5million release clause stipulated in Barton's contract. "What's happened is very unfortunate," McKay told The Sun. "I have spoken to City's chief executive, Alistair Mackintosh, and he told me they want the price that is in Joey's contract. "If City get the £5.5million they will be happy and Joey will be sold." Everton boss David Moyes enquired about the Merseyside native in January, and reports suggest that Sunderland and Tottenham could also be in the hunt for Barton's signature over the summer.
