The Ivorian was looking set to leave Manchester City this summer, but new developments have surfaced in his situation at Etihad.Written by Cosmin Mihalescu. May 8, 2017.
After having played an important role in Manchester City’s second part of the season, Guardiola is looking into the possibility of keeping Yaya Toure for another season.
The Ivorian’s contract is set to expire in the summer and he would now have to accept a pay cut of more than 50% if he wants to continue with the Citizens.Inter Milan V Lazio: Players to Watch Taimoor Khan – Inter Milan are set to host Lazio at the San Siro on Thursday and the game is definitely going to be an exciting affair…
Although he has been linked with moves to China lately, where he could definitely earn as much as his current £230,000 a week, Toure wants to stay in England, as he feels he can still contribute in top football.
But in order to do so, he would need to accept a huge wage cut. At least if he wants to continue with Manchester City. The club are preparing to offer him a new deal, with a weekly wage of around £100,000.
Although Toure had a rough start of the season, due to frictions between his agent and Pep Guardiola, Yaya has since then apologized and played an important role in City’s campaign. And while Guardiola is looking to add several players to his squad, he is willing to consider keeping the 33-year-old as well, due to his experience and popularity in the team.
