Yaya Toure is a midfielder of repute, there is no wonder that this player of Manchester City will be targeted by other clubs. As the transfer window opens up and several clubs place claims on players for their teams, the latest to join the bandwagon for Yaya is Juventus. These reports have come in through Italy sources. At the Etihad stadium this star player of Manchester City is unsure of whether he will be part of Pep Guardiola and his plans.
If you look back at Yaya’s transfer history, he came back to Manchester City in 2010. At that time he was reputed as the star player of Ivory Coast. At that time 24 million Euros were no small fee for him. Nou Camp was considered no longer fit for Yaya and Guardiola, then the boss of Barcelona team, decided to let him go.
The five seasons and more that Toure has played at the Etihad stadium have been successful for him. However, even though he has been termed African Footballer of the Year four times consecutively, this year he is a runner up to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. As per Toure’s agent, the midfielder was not looking for a transfer this year. While Guardiola coming in might indicates Yaya’s move, there are others who want him. Roberto, a former City boss who is with Inter Milan, would be glad to have him. He is also being considered for the Chinese Super League.
The latest rumors are about Juventus wanting to sign up Toure. That would be a contingency measure as Paul Pogba might be on sale, who has been a star player in the midfield for them. Hence, Yaya has several opportunities laid out for him, depending on which he wishes to take up and make use of.
