Despite more rumours suggesting Yaya Toure could be leaving Manchester City, the Ivorian international has confirmed via Twitter that he is going nowhere and he is happy at the Sky Blues.
There was constant speculation at the start of the year that Toure would be leaving the Manchester club, but he put those rumours to bed by penning a new long-term contract in April.
Then again, just before the 2013/14 season kicked-off, more rumours circulated about the unhappiness of the player at the club, but again Toure expressed his desire and commitment to stay at the club in the media.
Now the latest batch of rumours to suggest his departure comes from former City star Rodney Marsh who has expressed concerns over Toure's body language during the club’s 1-0 loss to Sunderland this past Sunday.
“People close to Manchester City tell me Yaya Toure is not very happy and he's one of their great players,” March is reported as saying.
“When you start to hear rumblings from within the camp, and you see the way Toure played last weekend, when he was strolling around and didn't look interested, I'm wondering now if it will all go a little bit the other way.
“It looks like they're throwing billions of pounds at players but keep coming up short. I think this season could end in tears at Man City.”
Toure, however, has once again shut down these rumours as he tweeted: “Hey buddies, don't listen to the rumours [sic], I'm happy at City. The Toure brothers are in Casa and are missing Manchester.”
Toure is currently in camp with Ivory Coast for their final World Cup qualifying game against Senegal on Saturday, November 16th.
Ivory Coast holds a 3-1 advantage over Senegal from the first leg and look likely to qualify for the World Cup in Brazil next year.
