The Sun have made a claim that has our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern scratching their heads.
The publication seem to be under the impression that Yaya Toure is considering his future at Manchester City for a couple of reasons.
The first of these reasons is the fact that City stalled over a new deal for the Ivorian midfielder last season – and that is something we can understand. The second of the reasons however is utterly bemusing to us.
Yaya is reportedly unhappy that no one from the newly crowned Premier League champions wished him a Happy Birthday last week!
Now that has raised some smiles on the faces of our punters and we know that footballers especially need to be loved but for Yaya to throw his toys out of the pram like this seems to be incredibly dramatic.
One of our punters moves over to the pool table and reminds us that last season at Real Madrid, a similar situation happened with Michael Essien, and the player was gutted no one turned up to his birthday party bar his ‘daddy’ Jose Mourinho!
We think Yaya Toure will enjoy many prosperous years with the Citizens despite these reports. What do you think? Let us know your thoughts below.
