Toure exit rumours resurface

Fresh reports have emerged suggesting Manchester City talisman Yaya Toure is seeking a summer exit.

Toure's future came under scrutiny in May when his agent claimed the midfielder was upset City had not acknowledged his 30th birthday correctly.

The Ivory Coast international also hit out at City for refusing him leave to see his brother Ibrahim, who died of cancer last month, although the club have stated they would never refuse a player compassionate leave.

French newspaper Le Parisien have now claimed Toure is desperate to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer and have quoted an unnamed Ivory Coast team-mate as saying Toure has "accumulated too many grudges against" City's leaders and will "do everything to ensure his departure" this summer.

The report in Le Parisien also claims Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester United are now planning moves for the 30-year-old, while speculation elsewhere suggested Toure could be open to a move to Liverpool to link up with his older brother Kolo.

However, it remains highly unlikely that City will consider selling Toure to a Premier League rival, which would leave PSG as the heavy favourites to land the Ivorian should City be prepared to allow the former Barcelona star to move on.
