AS Roma consider summer swoop for Man City star with expiring contract

Toure was exiled from the City first team during the opening months of Guardiola's tenure at the Etihad Stadium, having reported back for pre-season training overweight before being left out of the squad for the Champions League group stages - prompting a public spat between his agent Dimitri Seluk and the ex-Barcelona boss.

The Ukrainian told Sky Sports News: "From yesterday we officially started negotiating with different clubs about his future".

'Mourinho is a very good manager and Toure played with Zlatan at Barcelona.

"I said to Manchester City that we will start negotiations with other clubs about the future of Yaya".

"Some clubs have contacted me. But we can not wait until the last minute, until June, and have no negotiations with anybody". I'm not talking about China or the Major Soccer League. He will play in Europe.

We took a look at how Liverpool fans reacted on social media.

A move to United would undoubtedly ruin Toure's reputation among City fans, despite the fact he has won two Premier League titles, two League Cups and an FA Cup.

Toure apologised publically for Seluk's comments and marked his City recall with a match-winning brace at Crystal Palace.

Can you see Yaya Toure going to Manchester United this summer?

But after City were heavily criticised in the wake of the Monaco loss, Toure disagrees with suggestions they will not be able to win trophies under Guardiola's free-flowing style.

The Manchester City star's contract runs out this summer. From the beginning of the season until now we have always showed we want to attack and score goals, that is the most important thing.

"They can think it and Manchester City is one of the options. But tomorrow, for example, if we heard [from] Chelsea, he will sign with Chelsea".
