Toure will leave Manchester City, says agent

BY foxsports • February 2, 2016

Yaya Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk predicts the midfielder will leave Manchester City in the summer when Pep Guardiola arrives.

Toure, who played under Guardiola at Barcelona from 2008 to 2010 before moving to the Etihad Stadium, sees his contract run out at the Premier League club in the summer of 2017.

It was announced on Monday that Guardiola, currently boss at Bayern Munich, would take over from Manuel Pellegrini in the summer, but Seluk says Toure may not stick around.

"I think Yaya will leave the club," Seluk told The Sun. "But before leaving I hope he will win again the league and all the cups.

"It's not a question of whether Pep likes him or not. It's life, you know.

"Pep can call Yaya and speak to him to let him know 'I'm with you' or 'I am not with you'."

Toure has made 251 appearances for City, scoring 70 goals in his five-and-a-half seasons at the club.

He has helped City to two Premier League titles, in 2012 and 2014, as well as the FA Cup and League Cup.
