Yaya Toure is considering a move away from Manchester City after birthday snub, according to his agent Dimitry Seluk.

The Ivorian international has been in brilliant form for his club, scoring 20 goals and providing nine assists in his 35 league appearances. The 31 year old is now preparing for life away from Manchester City after feeling ‘disrespected’ that no one at the club wished him on his birthday.

Dimitry Seluk:”Yaya 21 is so upset he’s thinking of leaving City. There are a number of things that have happened that have left Yaya feeling bitterly upset. He must concentrate on the World Cup now. But City have treated him with disrespect and have really hurt him.

 “What happened at his birthday meant the club don’t care about him. It was proof. They can say whatever they want, ‘Oh we like him but we forgot’.

“Forgot? About Yaya? The player who helped you to be two-times Premier League champions? The guy who helped you win the FA Cup and the League Cup?

“His birthday can be on a normal day and, in a normal team, his team-mates and club would at least give him good wishes.

“But when you win the title on May 11, a day later you go to Abu Dhabi and on May 13 you have a big party to celebrate the title and nobody comes to Yaya to say, ‘Happy birthday’, what more do you want?”

Dimitry Seluk also revealed Yaya Toure might return to Barcelona and its not money that appeals his client.

Seluk added:”They don’t know that money can’t buy relationships – no Sheikh can buy a relationship. This isn’t about money or a new contract – it’s about human relationships and City have shown they don’t respect him. I repeat, this is not about money. In fact, he would take less to return to Barcelona.”

Yaya Toure is a key member to the City squad and is highly unlikely to leave Etihad this summer. Seluk is probably trying to earn his client a new improved contract, after he did the same last year. A month later after those comments, Toure was given a new contract at City, he is earning £260,000 a week and has three years left on his contract. 

This is not the first time Toure is feeling ‘disrespected’, recently, Yaya claimed he doesn’t get the respect he deserves on the world stage because he is from Africa.
