Yaya Toure says that his Manchester City future will be decided in the summer, amid rumours that Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are plotting big money swoops.
The Ivorian international’s spell at the Etihad Stadium has been plunged into doubt of late, with his agent claiming that the powerful midfielder has grown disillusioned with life at the club.
Reports circulated that unless he was offered a new contract by last weekend he would move on.
This has led to rumours that many of Europe’s elite club are ready to swoop, with Real Madrid and PSG said to be the front-runners.
However, Toure says that he is not thinking about a move and is purely focused on performing well for the rest of the season, after which he will decide his future:
“You know that with the approach of the transfer window, there are many things that are said.” He is quoted by The Mirror.
“We are professional and so far I have not given any agreement with any club.
“I am, for the moment, a City player, and I will fight so that we finish the season in good conditions.
“In a club, there are players and administrators. We are like soldiers and we carry out what employers say.
“The most important thing for me is to continue to have fun and to entertain the public.”
Toure joined City in 2010 from Barcelona, and was a key player in both their Premier League and FA Cup successes in recent seasons.
