Manchester City star Toure definitely leaving this summer, says agent

This will be Yaya Toure's final season with Manchester City with the midfielder's agent confirming he is interested in joining Serie A side Inter Milan.

Yaya Toure will “definitely” be leaving Manchester City at the end of the season, according to his agent.

The Ivory Coast midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Italian outfit Inter Milan, with his representative claiming Toure sees the Serie A side as a “fantastic club with a great project.”

Toure has been at loggerheads with City hierarchy for numerous months due a supposed lack of respect.

He was infamously infuriated by the Premier League club officials for failing to sufficiently celebrate his 31st birthday and is now expected to depart the Etihad Stadium.

Toure’s position in the team appears untenable with Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola’s imminent arrival in the summer following a campaign of inconsistent performances under Manuel Pellegrini.

The 32-year-old was rumoured with a transfer to the San Siro in the last off-season, with agent Dimitri Seluk confirming today they have received numerous offers from clubs including Inter - managed by former coach Roberto Mancini.

“He’ll definitely leave Manchester City, I can calmly confirm that,” Seluk told FC Inter News.

“Various offers have arrived for Yaya and we’re evaluating them, but no decision has been taken yet for next season.

Despite Inter reportedly offering a bumper pay packet to tempt the former Barcelona playmaker to Milan, Seluk claims there is no financial incentive behind the move to Serie A.

“Will the economic aspect make the difference? Absolutely not," the agent said. "We don’t put money before everything but the project the club presents us. The best will convince us.

“We’re definitely talking about a great club and everyone knows about the relationship between Yaya and Mancini, but like I’ve already said we haven’t made any decision yet.

“But I’ll add that the Nerazzurri’s project is great and Inter is a fantastic club. So it’s normal that they want a player of this level.”
