Yaya Toure has been making headlines over the last few days due to his controversial comments about Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.
The Ivory Coast international, who has picked up 13 trophies in his professional career so far, gave an explosive interview to France Football.
In the piece, the 35-year-old suggested that Guardiola dislikes African players and that the successful coach was “jealous” of the midfielder.
The shocking comments have somewhat tainted Toure’s eight-year spell at the North-West outfit.
Now, though, the former Barcelona star is looking for a new club to take him on, and his agent Dimitry Seluk has surprisingly admitted that his client will play for a salary of £1 per week.
While speaking to Sport24, Toure’s representative said:
“At a time when English clubs are spending huge sums of money on players, I officially declare that Yaya is ready to move to any top-six English club as a free agent with a salary of £1 per week. As long as a success-based bonus system is in place.”
These comments have attracted the attention of rival fans, including Tottenham Hotspur’s following.
The supporters have debated whether or not it would be a good move to bring in Toure, despite his controversial antics.
Some deem it a no-brainer, while others think that Spurs are better off without.
