Yaya Toure’s agent, Dimitri Selcuk, has suggested that the Ivorian powerhouse is ready to move on from City. He said:
Toure has done all he can at Manchester City and needs new motivations. He would like a new challenge. He could sign for many big clubs like Chelsea and Bayern Munich. And, Barcelona, we would like to see joining the bid.
This is not the first time that Selcuk has engineered speculation regarding Yaya’s future. The day after City clinched the Premier League title and prior to the summer transfer window opening similar stories emerged. Ultimately the speculation came to nothing but the prospect of Yaya leaving City is almost unthinkable for the fans.
For Selcuk to speak out now is particularly odd given that the next transfer window is over two months away. What exactly he is trying to achieve is not clear and his words should be taken with a pinch of salt.
