MANCH­ESTER — Yaya Toure’s

agent has con­firmed ed that the Ivory Coast mid­fielder will not be a Manch­ester City player next sea­son.

Toure’s fu­ture has bee­neen the sub­ject of wide­spread spec­u­la­tion n since the an­nounce­ment of Pep Guardi­o­lar­di­ola as City’s next boss — the Spa­niard d fa­mously sold Toure in 2010 dur­ing his timeme at Barcelona, be­fore the 32-year old forgedged a rep­u­ta­tion as one of the most com­pletete mid­fielder’s in the his­tory of the English Premier league.

His agent, Dim­itri Seluk,k, has now come out to say that his client has re­ceived a num­ber of of­fers, but in­sist­eded that money would not be the de­cid­ingng fac­tor in his client’s next trans­fer.

“He’ll def­i­nitely leave Manch­ester­anch­ester City, I can calmly con­firm that,” the Rus­sian told FC In­ter News.ws.

“Var­i­ous of­fers have ar­rived ved for Yaya and we’re eval­u­at­ing them, butt no de­ci­sion has been taken yet for next sea­son. ason.

“Will the eco­nomic as­pectct make the dif­fer­ence? Ab­so­lutely not. Wee don’t put money be­fore ev­ery­thing but the project the club presents us. The best will con­vince us. “

In­ternzionale has been mooted as a pos­si­ble des­ti­na­tion, but Selukuk re­mains coy on a trans­fer that would see him re­united with for­mer City boss Roberto erto Mancini.

“In­ter? We’re def­i­nitely talk­ing about a great club and every­one knows about the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Yaya ya and Mancini, but like I’ve al­ready said we haven’t made any de­ci­sion yet.

“But I’ll add that the Ner­az­zurri’sraz­zurri’s project is great and In­ter is a fan­tas­tic­n­tas­tic club. So it’s nor­mal that they want a player of this level.”
