City star linked with exit
Yaya Toure's agent claims claims the midfielder is keen to leave Manchester City and would welcome a move to Chelsea or Barcelona.
Despite the fact that City have yet to win the Champions League, the Ivory Coast midfielder's representative, Dimitri Seluk, says his client is after a new challenge and has listed Premier League rivals Chelsea among the clubs who could provide that. Seluk says Toure has won all he can with City and believes a move away would be the best for his career. Chelsea are probably one of the few clubs that could afford him but Seluk says there will be no shortage of interest. "Toure has done everything that he can with City and needs new motivations," Seluk was quoted as saying by Sport. "He could sign for many big clubs, like Chelsea or Bayern Munich, but I would like it if Barca made a bid for him." Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo would be interested if the player did become available but City will no doubt have something to say about Seluk's comments and are unlikely to sanction any move away.
