Keita and Cesc (Picture posted on Cesc's Twitter account)

Seydou Keita is in Barcelona. Dalian Aerbin, his current club, have given ex-Blaugrana permission to train at the Ciutat Esportiva ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations, which is set to start in on January 15 in South Africa.

Just as FC Barcelona did with Rafa Márquez last season, the Club has given the Mali international permission to train at the Ciutat Esportiva. In his first day of training, Keita coincided with Cesc, who is recovering from injury.

Fifth in the Chinese Superleague

Keita, who left Barça in July, finished fifth in the Chinese Superleague with Dalian Aerbin. It’s worth noting that the Chinese football season starts in March and ends at the end of the calendar year. This is Dalian Aerbin’s first season in the Chinese Superleague.

Keita, the first singing of the Josep Guardiola era, played a total of 188 official matches with FC Barcelona between 2008 and 2012. He won 14 with the Blaugrana.
