Manchester City News: Toure has English options

10 months ago

In the latest Manchester City news, it seems midfielder Yaya Toure could remain in the Premier League next season.

The 34-year-old’s eight-year stay at the Etihad Stadium is set to come to an end this summer, with City revealing on Friday he will not be offered fresh terms.

The Ivory Coast international will leave the club with three Premier League winners medals while also lifting the FA Cup once and League Cup twice during his successful stint.

It was thought that Toure might head to China to end his career with a lucrative deal in the Far East while the USA remains another option.

However, the latest reports claim both Huddersfield Town and Everton are interested in his signature.

The Manchester Evening News are reporting that the African ace has no plans to leave the Premier League and is happy living in the area, with a switch to Goodison Park perhaps ideal for all parties concerned.

A move to Huddersfield seems less likely as the Terriers are still battling for their top-flight survival and are likely to be in the same situation next term if they do stay up.

The former Barcelona man does seem like a Sam Allardyce-type player, with strong defensive capabilities and an ability to pop up with the odd goals or two.

The veteran feels he can still handle the physical nature of the Premier League despite the fact he will be 35 by the time it all gets under way once again in August.

City’s sister club, New York City FC, do not have first option to sign him if he wants a move to the MLS and it appears as though the talented schemer will be staying in England.
