No Problems between Guardiola and Yaya Touré, says Agent

Yaya Touré has not featured in the Manchester City team for the last three weeks after his agent, Dmitri Seluk, was involved in a problem with Pep Guardiola.

Touré was never really amongst the favour when Guardiola was the manager at Barcelona. Seluk has been consistently involved in a war of words with either City or the manager has over the last few years.Touré has been reportedly contemplating the possibility of moving to either Italy or other major leagues rather than stay at the Etihad stadium where his importance has diminished quite considerably.

Will the real Man Utd please Stand Up!

It was a spell of eight days that threatened to cast a rather gloomy cloud over Jose Mourinho’ short tenure in charge of Manchester United:

Saturday September 10; a 1-2 defeat to their arch rivals across the city.

Thursday September 15; another defeat, this time 0-1 to Feyenoord in the Europa League.

Sunday September 18; the week from hell completed by a 1-3 reverse at the hands of Watford.

Yaya Toure is struggling to get playing time under Guardiola

Ever since Yaya Toure joined Manchester City back on July of 2010 and the African midfielder has managed to become a pivotal figure for the Premier League who has helped the English club in winning 2 domestic league titles, 1 FA Cup, 1 FA Community Shield and 2 Football League Cups.

Yaya Toure has consistently been making over 28 appearances in every single season at the Etihad Stadium but things has taken a huge turn as Pep Guardiola does not appear to have the midfielder in his plans.


An analyst with SunSport Danny Higginbotham says that Paul Pogba is a complete midfielder and is a better player than the younger version of Yaya Toure.

Paul Pogba returned to Old Trafford after leaving four years ago due to lack of playing time and issues with wages. He returned to the club after he established himself at Italian giant Juventus, wining the Serie A every year since he joined. He broke the transfer fee record when the Red Devils paid £89 million for the deal. There have been a lot of arguments about the deal, with may doubting that the player was worth such a huge deal.

Yaya Toure might be moving to Inter Milan during the summer

There is news that Yaya Toure might be joining Inter Milan in the summer. Although Toure has one year left on his contract, it is believed that he will be leaving Manchester City in the summer.

Indeed, with the arrival of Pep Guardiola, it is hard to see Yaya Toure having enough playing time. The Spanish manager has never been a fan of the Ivory Coast player, and he was the manager that sold him to Manchester City.

Yaya Toure, on the other hand, has announced that he will be interested in fighting for his place, but we will have to wait for the decision of Pep Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola will be looking to build a team that will challenge for titles, and he will be keen to selling players that do not fit his plans. Although he has yet to be officially presented as the Manchester City manager, it is reported that he is working behind the scenes. So far Manchester City has signed one player, IlkayGundogan and it is believed that there is many more to follow.
