Manchester City star Yaya Touré has sensationally claimed that he may leave the club in the summer since anything can happen in football. His stunning revelation comes days after the star complained through his agent that he was unhappy with the way City treated him on his birthday. Touré recently celebrated his 31st birthday and was given two cakes on behalf of Manchester City. However, the Ivory Coast international has claimed that the club owners did not even shake his hand when the entire team was in the United Arab Emirates as part of the celebrations following the second Premier league title in three years.
Touré has been one of the best players not only in the Manchester City team but also in the entire Premier league as well. He came to the club in 2010 for a transfer fee of £ 24 million from Barcelona. Now, he has claimed that he wants to retire at Barcelona, which have sparked rumours that the Catalan club will be coming in with an offer for the player. Touré has been missed sorely in the last two seasons. Especially last campaign, they slipped from the astronomical levels set under Pep Guardiola and Tito Vilanova. Barcelona finished the campaign without any major trophy.
Touré scored more than 20 goals from the midfield last season. “I have said that in front of the camera before and I have said that to newspapers about ending my career there (Barcelona), but we don’t know because football is moving fast and you never know about tomorrow. Because of the brilliant season Man City have had, everybody is talking about me and everything is open and we don’t know tomorrow, but my focus is on the World Cup and at the end of the World Cup we will see what happens,” said the midfielder.
