Yaya Toure’s Manchester City career is almost over, but the towering midfielder wants to remain in the Premier League, and it looks as though he won’t be short of offers.
The Ivory Coast international plays his final home game for the Cityzens against Brighton tonight before ending his eight year spell with the newly crowned Champions at the weekend.
Despite turning 35 next week and with his best days behind him, Toure has no plans on retiring, and when asked if he wants to continue playing in England, he said: “Yes, because of my family.
“My kids, for me, are British. They go to school here, they have a lot of friends in Manchester. Manchester is their town.
“I would never celebrate a goal against City. I don’t want to face them, but if I want to stay in the Premier League, I’ll have to.”
Well it seems as though he could get his way, with reports today suggesting that three Premier League clubs are interested in his services.
According to the Daily Mirror, Everton, Burnley and newly promoted Wolves are keen to sign midfielder on a free transfer.
During his career at the Etihad, he has made 315 appearances, scored 82 goals, won three Premier League titles, two League Cups and one FA Cup.
