Arsenal, Man Utd interested in Yaya Toure

Toure will depart City in January

Manchester City star Yaya Toure has attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United in recent weeks, according to his agent.

The Ivory Coast international was recently dropped out of Pep Guardiola's Champions League squad for the group stages, and this has once again ignited speculation over his future.

Agent Dimitri Seluk has now revealed that the Gunners and Red Devils have made approaches to sign the experienced campaigner, but a move looks unlikely.

Guardiola is said to be reluctant to offload Toure to a direct league rival, whilst the player's reluctance to take a pay-cut on his £220,000-a-week wages also puts the deal in jeopardy.

Toure looks likely to cut ties with the Citizens in the New Year with Inter Milan being among the key contenders for his signature.

The 33-year-old has appeared in over 260 games for Manchester City since arriving from Barcelona in the summer of 2010.
