Reports: Yaya Toure To Stay In The Premier League

By Keegan Kruger - May 07, 2018 04:12 PM @KeeganKruger

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola confirmed last week that stalwart Yaya Toure will leave the Citizens at the end of this campaign, but despite being linked with a move to China, new reports suggest he will stay in the Premier League.

Click through the gallery above to see some City stars who could leave the club at the end of the season.

According to Manchester Evening News, the Ivorian star has no plans to leave England, and has offers on the table from Merseyside club Everton and minnows Huddersfield Town.

Toure joined the Premier League club from FC Barcelona back in 2010, and has managed to lift eight trophies during his stay at the Etihad – three league titles, three League Cups, one FA Cup and one Community Shield.

The 34-year-old, who has made only 16 appearances for the Citizens so far this season, apparently believes he still has what it takes to play in the English top flight, despite not playing a full 90 minutes with the Citizens this season.

The Ivory Coast legend's family is settled in England, and as a result, he is not interested in any move to the Chinese Super League, despite all the lucrative offers said to be coming his way.

There are rumours City's sister club New York City FC have a first option to buy the African, but the abovementioned report seems to have quashed those talks.

Yaya: Why It's The Right Time To Leave Man City 

The former Ivory Coast captain has made 315 appearances for City so far, scoring 79 goals and assisting a further 50 strikes.

If you were Toure, what would your next move be? Have your say in the comments section below.

@MR E I agree with you he must go far where no one will check him, make money do coaching license otherwise he'll be embarrassed if he goes to a smaller team in the EPL

He must just stop being stubborn and go join less competitive leagues and take things easy. His contribution to the game will forever be treasured in our hearts but his time is out now. Leli khehla shouldve left City last season as it was crystal clear he wasnt gonna be Pep's main man in midfield.
