Yaya Toure will be missed when he leaves City. Say what you want about some of his recent performances, but he will go down as one of our all-time greats – many would argue he is the most important player of the new era (and others would call you crazy and go with Kun, Silva or Vinny).
His odious agent Dimitri Seluk, however, will not be missed. Yaya is said to be extremely close to Seluk, who has helped the Ivorian become very rich and successful, perhaps one of the reasons Yaya hasn’t opted for a more professional representative.
Some of Seluk’s comments towards City have been slanderous, but tonight’s remarks about his
cash cow client’s future were quite tame. Speaking to the microphones of SportItalia, Seluk said:
“In January, he will not move, but in summer everything could change. We’re ready to listen to any offers that arrive at our table.”
Seluk hinting at a Yaya exit is an annual event, but could this be the year that 32-year-old Toure finally bids adieu to the Blues? He could be a high profile victim of the Pep revolution should the Catalan coach arrive, and interest from China and Roberto Mancini’s Inter mean the time could be right for a beautiful, often tumultuous relationship to come to an end.
