Oh my goodness. What a turn-up this would be.
Yaya Toure has refused to rule out a move to Manchester United this summer, with the experienced midfielder revealing that he wants to ‘teach’ Paul Pogba.
Indeed, in an interview with the Manchester Evening News, Toure revealed that he would never ‘rule a big team out’ when it comes to deciding his future.
Toure, who has also been linked with West Ham United, is available on a free transfer having left Manchester City, and it would be simply staggering to see the Ivorian pitch up at Old Trafford ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
The 35-year-old struggled for football last season, but he was once regarded as the best all-round midfielder in the Premier League, and clearly still feels that he can operate at this level of football.
The United supporters have been reacting to suggestions that former rival Toure could arrive, and it would be fair to say that the fanbase is split over the potential deal.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Now this would be something. Yaya Toure not ruling out a United move. Has stated he wants to remain in the PL before and probably doesn't want to leave Manchester after eight years living there. Might be a useful bit part player.
Would you take him on a free transfer? https://t.co/vjBuLGUpP5

Just what United need: a mid 30s, ambling presence in midfield deemed too past-it for the highest level.

Lols no thanks

So that’s a ‘yes’ from Alex. I’d go with ‘no’ and look to a more long-term option but this is Mourinho after all.

He is free btw. Why not bring in some experienced option

No way. We shouldn't be looking at man city rejects.

Sounds like an ideal Mourinho player

That would be a good free signing
