Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure is set to leave the Etihad this summer. His current contract will lapse June 2017 but Pep Guardiola’s arrival has cast serious doubts on a new deal.
Yaya Toure’s agent, Dimitri Seluk, told reporters that he has been speaking with Manchester City’s management regarding a new contract for the Ex-Barcelona star but recently decided to pursue a deal outside for the player. The agent said he is open to getting a deal for the talent including a potential reunion with former City Manager, Roberto Mancini. The agent said Toure could also join any other Premier League outfit.
He said: “He’ll definitely leave Manchester City, I can calmly confirm that.”
Pep Guardiola will set to take over the reins at The Sky Blues this summer, after his current spell at Bayern Munich. The Ex-Barcelona Coach had a very successful career while with the Catalan giant. He did the treble with the team, added the World Club Cup and others. He won everything possible at the club before moving on to the German club. Pep was the one that sold Yaya Toure when he was manger at Barcelona for £24million.
Seluk said the Ivorian was very much prepared to play at City under Guardiola but the player would have to look out since Manchester City is not forthcoming with a new deal.
“Various offers have arrived for Yaya and we’re evaluating them, but no decision has been taken yet for next season,” Seluk added.
Yaya has scored 72 goals and has 45 assists to his credit, in a span of 260 matches for Manchester City. He has helped the team win six titles that include two Premier League matches during the 2011/2012 and 2013/2014 seasons, FA cup title in the 2010/2011 season, Community Shield in 2012 aside two league cup victories in 2013/2014 and 2015/2016 seasons.
