Man City fans react on Twitter to Yaya Toure’s exit talk

Yaya Touré interview

The Ivorian midfielder could well be set to leave the current English champions this summer after admitting he needs a new challenge.

Manchester City’s Premier League title defence has gone off the rails since the turn of the year, with Manuel Pellegrini’s side slipping out of contention and currently fourth in the table.

The Etihad Stadium outfit are widely expected to overhaul their squad this summer, with some of the deadwood shipped out and new faces set to move to the Manchester club.

However, one of the side’s most influential players, Yaya Toure, could also be set for an exit.

The African midfielder has revealed that he is interested in a new challenge next season and that he is not interested in money but feeling valued.

Toure has played a considerable role in City being crowned English champions in two of the last three seasons, proving himself as one of the best in his position in the Premier League.

The veteran midfielder has come in for criticism this term though, with his performances not being as impressive as in the past.

City fans have reacted on Twitter to express their thoughts on Toure’s latest comments, with a majority stating that it may well be time for the talismanic midfielder to leave the club.

Here are the best tweets.
