Manuel Pellegrini rightly rules out move for Yaya Toure

Manuel Pellegrini rightly rules out move for Yaya Toure

Following their defeat to Liverpool last weekend, West Ham continued their tough start to the season with a 2-1 loss to Bournemouth yesterday.

Considering the huge summer spend of £93.47 million in the transfer window, which considered of nine new players, it was always going to take time for the players to bed in and adapt to Manuel Pellegrini’s style of play.

The Hammers broke their transfer record twice over the summer as they brought in Felipe Anderson and Issa Diop.

In midfield, the club brought in two players, Jack Wilshere and former Aston Villa midfielder, Carlos Sanchez.

Although the transfer market for permanent deals is now closed, as per usual, clubs can still sign free agents.

One such free agent who’s available, is former Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure.

However, as reported by The Sun, Pellegrini has ruled out a move for the 35-year-old midfielder.

The Breakdown

After eight seasons with City, Yaya Toure left the Premier League champions following the expiration of his contract.

At 35, the midfielder is coming to the end of his career, and with West Ham looking to begin a new era at the club, it would seem a strange move to bring in the ageing midfielder.

At one time, Toure was one of the most dominant midfielders in the world it would seem an unwise move to bring in the Ivorian.

With Toure also likely to command incredibly high wages, Pellegrini has made a good decision to avoid any deal for him.

What do you think West Ham fans?
