West Ham have opened talks with Yaya Toure about a potential move to the London Stadium and a reunion with former manager Manuel Pellegrini, according to the Daily Mail.
The ex-Man City man has just seen out his contract at the Etihad and has since publicly criticised manager Pep Guardiola, claiming he does not pick African players.
The 35-year-old Premier League legend has won three titles at City, but only made one start last season.
According to the Mail, Toure was on £220,000 per week at Manchester City but he is prepared to lower this to reunite with former City boss Pellegrini.
The Ivorian midfielder won the 2013-14 title under Pellegrini, scoring 20 times, and also won two League Cups under his management.
West Ham fans have had a mixed reaction to the latest astonishing transfer story to come out of the London Stadium this summer, with many wondering how much Toure has left in him.
If one thing is for sure, they will be signing a proven winner, but just remember to buy him a cake on his birthday…
A 35 year old Yaya Toure is such a West Ham signing!
