Yaya Toure raises doubts about Manchester City future

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has fuelled speculation he could leave the Etihad Stadium this summer after admitting he doesn't know what the future holds for him.

Sport Witness reports how the Ivory Coast international intimated in an interview with France 24 that a move away from the recently-crowned Premier League champions might be a possibility.

"In football we don't know what is going to happen tomorrow," he said. "We know as a professional footballer the ambitions of a couple of clubs now.

"On my part, I was able to be in a different country, a different club and I don't doubt about my adaptation, it's unbelievable.

"I've always been able to adapt quick and in a difficult situation and have this feeling that I don't know where the football is going to put me."

Toure added: "I don't know where I will go and I don't know where the football is going to bring me, but the most important thing is we don't know what can happen tomorrow.

"Always as a footballer I want to improve, and to be winning something and I will always want to be in the winning team, winning part and winning club. For the moment I think City is doing well but don't know tomorrow."

Toure was one of Manuel Pellegrini's star performers in 2013/14, netting 20 league goals to help the Citizens reclaim the domestic crown from local rivals Manchester United on the final day of the season.

His performances mean the 31-year-old is unlikely to be short of admirers should Toure express an interest in leaving Manchester City in the transfer window.

During his four-year spell in England, the box-to-box midfielder believes he has improved under tutelage of both Roberto Mancini and Pellegrini, and credits the Chilean tactician for utilising him in a more attacking position.

"To be honest it was quite boring when I was in Barcelona because I played only on the defensive side, centre back sometimes," he explained.

"Favourite position? [asked about number 10] I can say yes, I love it, I love it to be on the offensive side."
