Ivory Coast great Yaya Toure has refused to rule out a move to Manchester United this summer after he brought down the curtain on his Manchester City career.
Toure, 35, is out of contract after his eight-year spell with Manchester City that saw him win three league titles, an FA Cup, two League Cups and the Community shield.
The midfield dynamo has never hidden his interest of remaining in the Premier League, and when asked by the Manchester Evening News about replacing Michael Carrick at Old Trafford, Toure responded: “Yeah he just left. Let’s see, let’s see.
“I don’t rule big teams out. The big teams are very important for me. What they want to achieve, the way they want to go, for me is very important.
“I want to go somewhere I can win and achieve.
“It’s going to be hard one day to play against City, but I have to do that. It is part of my job.
“I’ve been playing football for such a long time, I’m no good in the office or something else. I am good in football.
“To see myself at a different club is going to be difficult. I have been such a big part of City for such a long time now. I just want to say that definitely I will continue to play at a high level – Champions League or Europa League.
“I want to play two more years. They have to be in the higher level and then I can do something else.”
Toure is one of the best players in the Prem over the past decade, winning four African Footballer of the Year Award for his exploits.
As for his possible move to crosstown rivals?…fingers crossed!
