Yaya Touré’s outspoken agent, Dimitri Seluk, has today told Sky Sports News HQ that he “expects” the 33-year-old Manchester City midfielder to leave the club this summer and that “a move to Manchester United, Liverpool or Arsenal would be considered.”

This comes on the same day that Sky Sports released an interview with Touré where the midfield talisman said he “loves” Manchester City and wants to stay.
Seluk’s comments do not confirm an exit yet, as he has precedent for making big statements that turn out to be little more than attention-seeking (or negotiation tactics).

However, with Touré’s contract up this summer and Pep Guardiola readying a major overhaul, this could realistically be the year that City fans finally wave farewell to one of the club’s greatest players.
What do you think? Should Pep let Yaya go or call upon his experience for another year or two?
