Barcelona defender Eric Abidal claims Manchester City are chasing his signature

The France international is yet to pen a new contract with the Champions League holders and has revealed Roberto Mancini's side are keen, as well as PSG and AC Milan
Barcelona defender Eric Abidal has claimed that Manchester City are closely monitoring his contract situation with a view to signing him.

The experienced full-back’s deal with the European giants runs out next summer and talks so far have failed to reach an agreement.

The France international also claimed that free-spending French outfit PSG and Italian giants AC Milan have expressed an interest in his services.

"There are clubs that have shown an interest, notably PSG, Milan and Manchester City," he told RMC.

"But there have been no concrete offers and I can't say any more.

"I have a lot of respect for Barca but if we can't reach an agreement, the door is always open."

The 32-year-old also revealed plans to carry on playing for at least another two years, with his eyes firmly on representing France at next summer's European Championships as well as at the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.

He added: "I believe I have the legs to go on for two more years.

"I have an international objective. We have qualified for Euro 2012, which is good, but I am also looking at the 2014 World Cup."
