Representatives of Yaya Toure will meet with management at Manchester City to discuss the midfielder’s future after his agent confirmed he has received “different offers” for his services, according to The Guardian.
The Ivorian’s future at the Etihad Stadium has been thrown into doubt at various stages this season, though after an interview on Tuesday where he claimed he was “open to new challenges” and hailed Paris Saint-Germain as a “great club”, there are increased worries he is ready to leave.
Coming off a brilliant campaign last season, Toure has had a mixed bag in terms of form this season. It has been an inconsistent year for Manchester City as a whole, and their inconsistencies look to have cost them their Premier League title.
His agent Dimitri Seluk has now admitted to asking for a meeting with Citizens officials to ask whether his client will be allowed to leave at the end of the season.
He said, “We have had different offers for Yaya but we must speak to Manchester City. People think he will stay because of money but we don’t care about money. If Man City don’t want him – no problem.
“I want someone to say they want Yaya to stay at Manchester City. Yaya is a legend at the club. All the supporters like him, he’s helped them make history.”
This latest controversy comes after Seluk branded manager Manuel Pellegrini weak, along with a tirade against other officials at the club. He also claimed the midfielder was, a year ago, considering leaving after Manchester City failed to wish him a happy birthday at a club event in Abu Dhabi.
