Yaya Toure will leave Manchester City this summer, claims agent

Yaya Toure's agent claims the midfielder will leave Manchester City in the summer.

Dimitri Seluk claims the 32-year-old, who has a year remaining on his contract with City, has "various offers" and will assess his options at the end of the season.

Seluk said: "We have waited too long. Manchester City promised a deal but nothing has materialised so Yaya will leave in June.

"He is disappointed of course. But he is a professional and he remains under contract, so he will continue to do his best for City."

Ivory Coast international Toure joined City in the summer of 2010 from Barcelona - who were then managed by incoming City manager Pep Guardiola.

He has been linked with a move to Inter Milan, managed by former City boss Roberto Mancini - the man who brought him to the Etihad Stadium.

Seluk said in an interview with FC Inter News: "Various offers have arrived for Yaya and we're evaluating them, but no decision has been taken yet for next season.

"Will the economic aspect make the difference? Absolutely not. We don't put money before everything, but the project the club presents us. The best will convince us.

"Inter? We're definitely talking about a great club and everyone knows about the relationship between Yaya and Mancini, but like I've already said, we haven't made any decision yet."
