Manchester City fans certainly have a degree of panic on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Mirror claim that Yaya Toure is determined to leave the club.
We have been hearing all summer long that the Ivorian midfielder is unhappy with the City chiefs and now it seems that the player feels the point of no return has been reached.
Toure has reportedly made his mind up about his future and concluded that it does not lie in England.
According to an unnamed player: “He has accumulated too many grudges against [Manchester City’s] leaders and he will not stay with them.
“He will do everything to ensure his departure this summer.”
As one of our punters notes over a pint, that is hardly ideal for Manuel Pellegrini now that pre-season preparations are fully underway.
The same publication seems to think that the Citizens are determined to do everything in their power to keep the player who netted 20 goals last season at the club.
City fans. Do you think Toure will be able to force through a move? Is keeping a player who is willing to disrupt the side a recipe for disaster? Let us know your thoughts below.
