Manchester City contract rebel wants Premier League stay
Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has informed potential summer suitors of his desire to stay in the Premier League as he reaches the end of his contract the Etihad Stadium, per the Daily Mirror.
Toure, 33, has been at City since 2010 having joined from Barcelona, then managed by current boss Pep Guardiola.
The Ivorian has not always seen eye to eye with Guardiola, and was ostracised from the first team earlier in the campaign after some outspoken comments from his agent.
But since returning to the side, Toure has performed excellently in a holding midfield role similar to the one he played under Guardiola at the Camp Nou.
But with his contract expiring, he is free to discuss a move away from City and has reportedly said he would be open to facing his current side next season by staying in the English top flight.
This will be music to the ears of rival fans, with Manchester United said to be keeping an eye on his situation, bur City may also be keen to tie him down for a few more years.
