Confirmed: Yaya set to leave City

Cape Town - Yaya Toure's agent has confirmed that the Ivory Coast midfielder will not be a Manchester City player next season.

Toure's future has been the subject of widespread speculation since the announcement of Pep Guardiola as City's next boss - the Spaniard famously sold Toure in 2010 during his time at Barcelona, before the 32-year old forged a reputation as one of the most complete midfielder's in the history of the English Premier league.

His agent, Dimitri Seluk, has now come out to say that his client has received a number of offers, but insisted that money would not be the deciding factor in his client's next transfer. 

"He'll definitely leave Manchester City, I can calmly confirm that," the Russian told FC Inter News.

"Various offers have arrived for Yaya and we're evaluating them, but no decision has been taken yet for next season. 

"Will the economic aspect make the difference? Absolutely not. We don't put money before everything but the project the club presents us. The best will convince us. "

Internzionale has been mooted as a possible destination, but Seluk remains coy on a transfer that would see him reunited with former City boss Roberto Mancini.

"Inter? We're definitely talking about a great club and everyone knows about the relationship between Yaya and Mancini, but like I've already said we haven't made any decision yet. 

“But I'll add that the Nerazzurri’s project is great and Inter is a fantastic club. So it's normal that they want a player of this level."
