In the previous season of the Premier League, YayaToure made a total of 29 appearances for Manchester City and ever since he joined the Premier League on July of 2010, Toure has been an instrumental figure for the English club as he has helped them in winning 2 Premier League titles as well as a few other pieces of silverware.
Even at his 32 years of age, YayaToure is one of the most influential figures at the Etihad Stadium. YayaToure has a particular set of skills which allows him of being able to defend or attacking in the middle of the pitch. The Ivorian player is capable of helping out his team whether it may be in scoring goals or defending and with an endless stamina as well as work rate, even at his elevated age he still remains being a top class player and this is why many clubs are interested in signing YayaToure.
One of the clubs which has shown most interest in signing YayaToure is Inter Milan and Roberto Mancini will not give up in his pursuit of securing the services of the Ivorian player.
YayaToure has a contract with Manchester City which extends until 2017 but a few months ago he was being rumored of wanting to leave the English club due to some incidents which have been occurring but now it has been confirmed that Toure will fulfill his entire contract.
The agent of YayaToure, DimitriSeluk has confirmed that his client will remain with Manchester City for at least another season. The experienced midfielder himself has told the fans of Manchester City to not worry as he will continue with the team. Read more »
Former Chelsea defender David Luiz has claimed that he was advised by Zlatan Ibrahimovic to leave the London outfit for Paris St Germain.
Luiz became the world’s most expensive defender after making a £ 50 million move to the French capital in the summer. Chelsea were praised for the way they received such a huge amount of money for a player who was not seen as a first choice central defender. The decision to sell the Brazilian has proven to be the right decision, as Chelsea have been much more solid in defence without the 27-year-old.
Luiz will be coming up against Chelsea for the first time since leaving the West London outfit in the Champions League knockout stages. The first leg will be at the French capital with the return leg at Stamford Bridge set almost a month away. Luiz has revealed that Ibrahimovic was a major factor in convincing him to move to PSG. The pair were seen together in the last season’s quarter-final. Chelsea won this match in remarkable circumstances and knocked out PSG from the quarter finals yet again. PSG won the first leg 3-1 before the blues managed a 2-0 victory in the return leg. Luiz has also revealed that he has great respect for Jose Mourinho. Read more »
Jose Mourinho has rejected speculation that Chelsea would be prepared to listen to offers for winger Mohamed Salah, who has slipped down the pecking order at the club. Signed for around £ 12 million last January, the former FC Basel man was expected to be the substitute for the likes of Eden Hazard and Willian when they were injured.
However, Chelsea have been extremely lucky with regards to injuries in the last 12 months and Mohamed Salah has barely featured in the matchday squads especially the season.
His performances when picked for the less important competitions like the League Cup have also not been good enough to warrant a selection in the Premier League.
