Key Manchester City player reveals he could leave in the summer
By North-west correspondent Alex Stevens
Yaya Toure is laying the foundations for his Manchester City exit in the summer.
The Ivory Coast international’s agent Dimitri Seluk has insisted his star client will listen to “every offer” at the end of the season.
Toure, who turns 33 in July, will have just 12 months remaining on his £240,000-a-week contract in the summer and his future will come under the microscope.
Toure has flirted with leaving City before and once infamously insisted he was unhappy at not getting a cake for his birthday but there is a growing sense he is in his final campaign at Etihad Stadium.
Speaking to SportItalia, the Ivorian’s agent Dimitri Seluk said: “He won’t move in January, but in the summer everything could change. We’re ready to listen to every offer that will come to the table.”

Toure was signed from Barcelona in 2010 for £24million and has gone on to be one of the outstanding players of the Sheikh Mansour era.
The midfielder remains a key player in Manuel Pellegrini’s team and has scored six goals in all competitions this season, including five in the Premier League.
Earlier this month the Ivorian admitted he would have quit City last summer if it had not been for Pellegrini.
He said: “I’ve stayed because of Manuel. He always talks to me, giving me some piece of advice. He has been aware of my life off the pitch.”
