With Yaya Toure having been linked with a host of Premier league clubs, his agent has now made the shocking claim that the African would join Manchester United or any of the top six sides for just R17 a week.

The Ivorian, who claimed earlier this week that Pep Guardiola does not like African players, has been linked with the likes of Everton, Burnley and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

He also recently flirted with a move to Manchester United, and suggested he could "teach" Paul Pogba some things.

His agent, Dimitri Seluk, has now claimed that Toure would be prepared to join any of the top six sides in the Premier League for just £1 (R17) a week, plus performance-based bonuses.

"Yaya has many offers from different countries, ready to pay a lot of money, but we decided to dedicate the next season to Guardiola," Seluk said, as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

"And to prove and show the fans of City that Yaya is not finished. He is full of energy and wants to play next season in England.

"At a time when big sums are being paid, I officially declare that Yaya is ready to move as a free agent to any English club in the top six with a salary of £1 a week. But with a bonus system based on certain successes.

"I believe that a player like Yaya would not harm Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool. Yaya is a winner. And never before has a top footballer with leadership qualities harmed any club, especially when it is not necessary to pay for it."

Seluk then elaborated on his offer, saying that if his client was interested in money, he could earn large sums in other countries.

"I think it's the first time (this has happened) in history," he added.

"We are not so interested in money, as perhaps it seemed to many. If they were interested in us, we would go to another country, where they offer very large sums."

Toure is a free agent from 1 July after City decided not to extend the 34-year-old's contact following his eight years at the club.
