Yaya Toure considers quitting Man City

Published 4 Comments

Yaya Toure is ready to quit Manchester City in order to secure a big money move to either Paris Saint-Germain or Anzhi Makhachkala, according to sources close to the player.

Toure has established himself as the heartbeat of City’s title winning side since moving the Etihad Stadium in 2010 from Barcelona.

The Ivorian scored the winner in Manchester City’s FA Cup win against Stoke in 2011, and was key to Roberto Mancini’s side as they claimed their first league title in 44 years last term.

Now though he is reportedly considering a move away from the Etihad Stadium in order to secure a big money contract, with PSG or Anzhi Makhachkala his probable destination given the size of his wages at Manchester City currently.

According to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, Toure has offers to leave Manchester City as he attempts to negotiate the best possible deal for himself.

Balague, writing on his Sulia page, reveals he used a similar strategy at Barcelona which ultimately ended in him signing for Manchester City.

“Yaya is willing to leave Manchester City this summer. He has offers, I am told, and, considering he is one of the best paid players in the world, that can only come from Anzhi or PSG,” Ballague writes.

The Citizens midfielder later admitted he didn’t want to leave the Nou Camp in 2010 for the Citizens but issued the club with an ultimatum over a new contract.

“His strategy is pretty similar to the one that forced Guardiola to let the player go even though Yaya admitted later on that he never wanted to leave.

“Barcelona were asked, either a new contract or I am leaving. I wonder if a new contract will be demanded of City before the summer"
