Report: Yaya Toure's agent suggests summer exit from Manchester City now likely

Yaya Touré: By The Numbers:  : 20150517

Manchester City’s Yaya Toure has been linked with a move away.

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure could be set to leave the club this summer after his agent Dimitri Seluk admits talks with fellow European clubs will now commence, The Sun reports.

The Ivory coast international will be entering the final 12 months of his contract this summer and talks over a new deal have yet to materialise, despite the player seemingly keen to stay.

Speculation over his future had started to mount amid Pep Gaurdiola’s expected summer arrival at the Etihad Stadium, and now his agent has confirmed that he will seek out a move away from the club.

“From this moment we start to discuss with different clubs about Yaya going there in the summer,” Seluk said to The Sun.

“City don’t do anything concrete. Yaya has given everything for the club and we don’t feel that this situation is the right way to show how much they appreciate him.”

The Sun report that Juventus, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are among those keen on signing the 32-year-old and the latter in particular certainly have the finances to strike a deal.

Toure joined City from Barcelona in the summer of 2010 and soon became of the most decorated players in the Premier League, helping the club win two league titles and three domestic cups.

Despite his influence waning somewhat over the past 12 months, the box-to-box midfielder is still one of the league’s better players and there is no doubt he can still do a job at the top level.

However, Guardiola sold him before when he was approaching his prime therefore his chances of remaining at City under the Spaniard’s guidance when he arrives now appear fairly slim.
