Yaya Toure is ready to join any of Manchester City’s rival for a weekly pay of £1 to prove to Pep Guardiola that he can still play at top level. This was made known by his agent, Dimitry Seluk.
35-year-old Yaya Toure became a free agent having being released at the end of the season after making just one Premier League start as City won the EPL title.
“Right now Yaya has a lot of offers from different countries, huge offers are being made, but we decided to dedicate the next season to Guardiola and show and prove to Man City fans that Yaya is still far from retiring,” agent Dimitry Seluk told Russian website Sport24.
“He’s full of energy and willing to play the next season in England. In the time when huge amounts of money are spent on footballers in England, I officially declare that Yaya is ready to move to any of the Premier League top-six clubs as a free agent and play for just £1 per week, with possible bonuses in case of certain achievements.”
“I reckon a player such as Yaya wouldn’t be bad for any club, be it Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United, Tottenham or Liverpool. He’s a winner.”
eluk further stated that he believes Toure is still capable of playing top flight football for three to four more years.
“Yaya has always played with a 42 number on his back. That’s the number we chose, as the age when he’ll end up with football,” he added. “I’m sure he’s still strong enough to play three or four years at the highest level.”
Seluk’s comments is coming just days after Toure accused Guardiola of being “cruel to him” and claimed he “often had problems with Africans.”
“When you treat Yaya, club legend, as he did, he turned the whole Africa against him and the club,” Seluk added. “I’m sure African shamans won’t let him win it. It’ll be like an African curse on him.”
