Agent suggests Man City star will leave this year

ToureThere have been some raised voices amongst our resident Manchester City fans over by the darts board who are becoming increasingly annoyed with Yaya Toure and his agent.

The 32-year old’s representative, Dimitri Seluk, is quoted by The Daily Mail as stating that he and he his client will listen to ‘every offer’.

The Ivory Coast international has been a mainstay in the Blues’ team since he swapped Barcelona for Manchester in a £24 million move back in 2010.

Since then, he has netted 56 league goals in 183 league appearances, as well as scoring crucial goals in City’s recent victories in the FA Cup and Capital One Cup finals.

However, recent indications have linked the midfield powerhouse with a move to Inter Milan, which would see him reunited with former City boss Roberto Mancini at the San Siro. The 32-year old has also been linked with a lucrative move to several Chinese clubs.

Speaking to SportItalia, Toure’s agent Seluk fuelled speculation as he said:

“He won’t move in January, but in the summer everything could change. We’re ready to listen to every offer that will come to the table.”

Toure has been linked with a move away from the Etihad for some time now, after reports back in 2014 suggested he felt that he deserved more respect at the club when he did not receive a birthday cake.

But now that Toure only has one additional season remaining on his current contract, the Blues might be willing to listen to offers as they look to cash in while they can.

The reportedly imminent arrival of Pep Guardiola at City this summer could seal Toure’s departure, after the pair had a poor relationship with the Spanish coach and it was he who sanctioned his sale to City.

One City supporter in the Tavern claims that the time is right for Toure to depart the Etihad, with Paul Pogba and Thiago linked with a summer switch.

Manchester City fans, how much would Toure be worth if he left the club this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
