Another week, another set of comments from the outspoken agent of Yaya Touré, Dimitri Seluk. The Ukrainian has been in full attack mode against Manchester City and Pep Guardiola recently, but in an exclusive interview with TMW today, he returned to a more diplomatic tone.
Asked whether there are any problems between Pep and Yaya, Seluk responded, “Problems between Pep and Yaya? No, absolutely not. I deny these rumours.”
The rest of the interview focused on Touré’s future and what happened with his proposed move to Inter last summer.
Despite this (no problems), could there possibly be a farewell in January?
Seluk: “Yaya will stay at Manchester City. There is a valid contract until the end of the season, then we will see what is the best situation for his future.”
Could Serie A be an option?
Seluk: “There are many teams that would like Yaya, not just in Italy.”
During the summer, there was much talk about Yaya joining Inter. Why did the deal not materialize?
Seluk: “The issue was Manchester City, who demanded a lot of money to let him go.”
