Yaya Toure’s agents opens the door on a possible move abroad.
The agent of Manchester City midfielder and talisman Yaya Toure has done little to dampen the speculation surrounding the Ivorian’s future, according to the Standard, who report that he has left the door ajar for a possible move to one of the continent’s biggest clubs.
Dmitiri Seluk did little to pour cold water on the rumours:
“If an important club like PSG or Real Madrid made a big offer it would be for Manchester City to decide what happens.”
Toure has seemingly become unsettled at the City of Manchester Stadium in recent months, with reports suggesting that he was unhappy with the way that the club celebrated his birthday and that he was not allowed a leave of absence when his late brother was in hospital.
The central midfielder has become the poster boy of the oil revolution at Manchester City, joining from Barcelona and becoming the biggest star at a club happy to splash the cash on some of the world’s finest talents.
His partnership with Brazilian Fernandinho was one of the key reasons behind their Premier League title last season, with Toure having been given the freedom to attack and score a league-high number of goals for a midfield player.
Players with such rare gifts are always likely to be in high demand and it seems as though Toure could well be interested in a move back to continental Europe this summer, if the right club comes calling.
