In the Football Transfer Tavern, the consensus is that money cannot buy you happiness. But a Bugatti and a handshake on your birthday can. Well according to Metro at least.
Yaya Toure is now reportedly considering his future at Manchester City after the newly crowned title winners failed to offer him anything for his birthday – bar a cake. Shocking we know.
The 31-year-old has obviously suffered akin to Ashley Cole when the latter was offered only £60,000 per week by Arsenal – subsequently being forced to defect to Chelsea after nearly crashing his car.
Well now Yaya is Bugatti-less, it seems the same move may be on the cards for him.
Given the powerhouse midfielder has become the first since Frank Lampard to score 20 plus Premier League goals in a season from the middle of the park, you cannot blame other Premier League sides for being keen – and Chelsea reportedly are.
Well Yaya may do well to remember that owner Roman Abramovich lends his yachts out to players – when it is not even their birthday!
His current employers fail to even provide a handshake or an adequately sized cake. The Blues also make sure they wish players a happy birthday on their official Twitter account – see Petr Cech for proof.
If City refuse to sell him to another league side, our landlord makes the point that we might not have sports cars, but we have a five-a-side team and free beer afterwards!
Manchester City fans. Are you better off without a player who throws his toys out of the pram like this? Let us know your thoughts below.
