Yaya Toure is STAYING at Man City, confirms agent

first_img Manchester City and Ivory Coast star Yaya Toure Yaya Toure has performed a remarkable U-turn over his future and is set to STAY at Manchester City this summer, according to the midfielder’s agent.Toure has been strongly linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium over the past year following the now infamous ‘birthday cake-gate’, with Dmitri Seluk recently claiming the Ivory Coast star was “90 per cent certain” to leave at the end of the season.Former City boss Roberto Mancini was reportedly keen on signing the 32-year-old for Inter Milan, with the Italy giants reportedly closing in on a deal worth around £10million.But Seluk has now changed his tune, telling Sky Sports News that Toure will stay and see out the final two years of his contract at Man City after the club told him he was “too important to let go.”City boss Manuel Pellegrini has repeatedly stated his desire to hang on to his star midfielder, who moved to the Etihad Stadium from Barcelona in 2010.The midfielder’s representative made the headlines a year ago when he said his client was seeking to leave City because the club had failed to honour his 31st birthday sufficiently.“There is a big possibility Yaya will leave this summer,” Seluk said in May 2014.“He is very upset. What happened at his birthday means the club don’t care about him. It was proof.”Toure is currently with the City squad in north America on a post-season tour. 1last_img
