Reports: Premier League Club To Offer Yaya Toure £100 000 A Week
Reports in England suggest that former Manchester City stalwart Yaya Toure is about to be offered a contract worth £100 000 (R1.76 million) a week by a Premier League club.
According to The Sun, Crystal Palace are interested in the Ivorian, and hope he will end his career at Selhurst Park.
The 35-year-old, who is now a free agent, was also linked with West Ham United recently, but his public spat with former manager Pep Guardiola has reportedly put the London side off the idea of signing the midfielder.
The Eagles believe they can now tempt the former FC Barcelona star to join them with the offer of £100 000 (R1.76 million) a week, wages he is unlikely to receive anywhere else in England.
The three-time Premier League winner feels he can still compete at the top level, and is hoping he can find a club in London – he recently moved to the city and does not want to uproot his family again.
Toure, who has also won three League Cups and an FA Cup during his time in England so far, made 316 appearances for the Citizens, scoring 79 goals and assisting a further 50 strikes.
