Yaya alerts top clubs, hints at January move from Barcelona

Posted By: Staff

London, Dec. 1 (ANI): Yaya Toure put Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea on alert after suggesting that he might leave Barcelona in January.

The midfielder, 26, younger brother of City's Kolo, has failed to nail down a regular spot in Barca's first-team this season and could be on his way for 10 million pound.

"My situation is astonishing. When a new contract is given to a player, it makes no sense to then leave him on the bench," The Sun quoted Toure, as saying

His agent Dimitri Seluk said: "The situation must change soon or the kid leaves Barcelona in January. Yaya is not for the bench and this situation isn't helpful for them or us."

"We do not understand Barca's motives and if a club like Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester City are interested in the transfer window, then we are open to negotiation," he added. (ANI)
