Manchester United and Arsenal have shown their interest to sign Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure, confirms his agent Dimitri Seluk to Sky Sports.

The 33-year old was one of the key midfielders for City till last season but has dramatically fallen down the pecking order under new manager Pep Guardiola. He hit a new bottom when he was not selected in Manchester City’s Champions League squad last week which has raised lot of eye brows in England.

Since Toure is surplus to Manchester City requirements, rivals United and Arsenal have been in touch over the midfielder. However his agent has confirmed that the move could be ‘impossible’ but revealed they received offers from China, Turkey, Italy and the United States.

“Yaya in January can sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs abroad,” Seluk said. “He will have many offers from clubs. China and America of course they want him but we will have a lot of offers from England and Europe.

“He is in very good shape, very good condition, I think he lost seven kilograms.

“Maybe that’s not good enough for Guardiola, but then Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasn’t good enough for him (at Barcelona).

The player is yet to feature in any of the match day squads and was not selected to Champions League squad which means that he has no future under Pep this season and agent Seluk feels omission of Yaya could impact African fan base of Manchester City.

“They will lose a lot of millions of supporters from Africa because of this decision from Guardiola,” Seluk said.

“Now they will support Manchester United. A lot of people in Africa say they will never see any more matches of City on TV.”
