Manchester United and Arsenal have shown interest in signing Yaya Toure, his agent Dimitri Seluk told Sky Sports.
Toure has fallen out of favor at the Etihad, and is not in manager Pep Guardiola’s plans for the season. He was excluded from City’s Champions League squad this week and is now keen on finding a route out of the club.
According to Seluk, the Ivory Coast International will be looking to sign a pre-contract agreement with a club in January. He is reportedly garnering interest from China and America, but his situation has also alerted Arsenal and Manchester United.
“Yaya in January can sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs abroad,” Seluk said. “He will have many offers from clubs. China and America of course they want him but we will have a lot of offers from England and Europe.
“He is in very good shape, very good condition, I think he lost seven kilograms.
“Maybe that’s not good enough for Guardiola, but then Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasn’t good enough for him (at Barcelona).”
Manchester City and Guardiola will be preparing for the upcoming Manchester Derby against Manchester United at Old Trafford on the 10th of September.
