Arsenal and Man United alerted over availability of Premier League champion

Arsenal and Manchester United have been alerted once again over the potential departure of Manchester City star Yaya Toure, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The 32-year-old was previously linked with an exit last year, with the two mentioned teams trying to persuade him to make a switch.

City are considering the idea of cashing him in ahead of the upcoming season, as they are tipped to go through a squad overhaul at the Etihad.

Toure revealed that he may leave his current side if he feels that the English champions no longer require his services.

“No amount of wages will make me stay at a club if I feel that I no longer belong there or if no challenge exists for me,” he said.

He also added that he believes the club are blaming the key players for their struggles this season, and that he is ready for a new challenge.

“For the future, I don’t know more than you do, because I will always go where I am offered new challenges.

“When things are not going well at a club, the key players take the fall.”

The Ivorian midfielder is currently on a £200,000-a-week contract, and with potential suitors Inter Milan unable to match his wages, a move to another Premier League side willing to meet his demands is a possibility.
