Yaya Toure’s agent Dimitri Seluk has incredibly claimed that the midfielder would play for any of the top six clubs in the Premier League for just £1 a week, which is some value.
The 35-year-old is available on a free transfer this summer following his release from Manchester City.
And far from considering hanging up his boots, Toure wants to stay in the Premier League.
West Ham United have been credited with an interest in the Ivory Coast international, but it appears that the experienced midfielder is holding out for a move to a club competing in Europe next season.
Toure’s City connections mean that it would be quite spectacular if the former Barcelona midfielder arrived at Manchester United ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
Stranger things have happened, however, and it appears that a number of United fans would welcome Toure.
Once regarded as one of the best midfielders in world football, Toure scored 20 Premier League goals during the 2013-14 campaign, but failed to net in his 17 appearances in all competitions for the Citizens last term.
Toure has heavily criticised City boss Pep Guardiola in recent days, and it seems that the United supporters would welcome him to Old Trafford with open arms.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
I would sign Yaya Toure as a mentor for Pogba.
At 35, Yaya Toure could still play for 2 seasons (not all games) while he helps Pogba become the best box-to-box in the world.
When Pogba wants he can be brilliant, but he needs to be led on the right path.

Sounds like a good deal. Pay him 100k per start. 50k per substitute appearances. Additional 2 million bonus if he appears in >35 matches.
