Yaya Toure's future is at Manchester City
Yaya Toure is confident that he will still be a Manchester City player next season. It looked certain that Toure would leave the Etihad, especially when he found himself exiled from the first team earlier in the season, followed by big more offers from the Chinese Super League.
The Telegraph quotes Toure as saying “I just want that when I finish playing I can finish at City.” The former Ivory Coast international signed for Manchester City from Barcelona in 2010, and has been a key member of their rise to the elite clubs in the Premier League.
Although it has not been officially announced, the report suggests that Manchester City chiefs have offered Toure a new contract at the club, with his current deal set to expire shortly. With plenty of new additions to Pep Guardiola's squad expected this summer, Toure may drop from a first team regular to more of a squad player, which may be reflected in a reduction from his £240,000 per week deal.
Manchester City fans will be impressed by Toure's commitment to the club, which has been doubted in the past. It is not the first time that he has been linked with an exit from the club, and many expected him to accept a big money move to Asia.
