Yaya Toure, is prepared to play for rivals, Manchester United and Arsenal, in order to prove Pep Guardiola wrong, his agent, Dimitri Seluk has said.Guardiola sold Toure while at Barcelona and then had a major fall-out with the Ivorian midfielder at the start of the 2017/2018 season, after leaving him out of City’s Champions League squad.
Toure later returned to the side, but found himself on the outside again in 2018/2019 after falling down the pecking order as City won the Premier League title, playing just 10 league games all season.
He has already confirmed he would leave The Etihad this summer, when his contract expires after eight years.
However, he could remain in England next season, after Seluk claimed he would be ready to play for just £1-a-week at any of the Premier League’s top six clubs.
“Yaya has received many offers from different countries, big money offers, but we have decided to devote the next season to Guardiola,” Seluk told Sport24.
“To proving to the Manchester City fans that Yaya is not finished with football. He is full of strength and energy and wants to play in England this season.
“At a time when English clubs are spending huge sums of money on players, I officially declare that Yaya is ready to move to any top-six English club as a free agent with a salary of £1 per week. As long as a success-based bonus system is in place.
“I think a player like Yaya would be good for a club like Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd, Tottenham or Liverpool. Yaya is a winner.
“And a top player with leadership qualities could never be a bad addition to a team, especially when he doesn’t require payment.”
