Yaya Toure agent threatens City exit

Yaya Toure could be heading for the Manchester City exit door, with the midfielder reportedly unhappy with his contract situation at the club

Yaya Toure's agent insists the midfielder will leave Manchester City if he is not offered a new deal by the end of this week.

Toure has reportedly been locked in negotiations for the past six months with the club, and wants the issue settled during the international break.

Agent Dimitri Seluk confirmed the 29-year-old's ultimatum, claiming Toure is interested in departing last season’s Premier League champions.

"If he signs a contract in the next three or four days, okay. If not, we will not wait any longer and will start negotiations with different clubs," Seluk is quoted as saying in The Sun.

"Today is Tuesday, so it means by Saturday. We will say 'Thank you. Okay, Yaya will leave in May.'

"I do not feel he will stay at City. This is not about money. He wants to leave because of many reasons. He is one of the best players at Manchester City but does not feel the respect of the staff. Only Roberto Mancini respects Yaya."

It is claimed Toure currently earns £220,000 a week, but the former Barcelona man is not seeking a pay rise, according to Seluk.

Currently away with the Cote d'Ivoire to play in a World Cup qualifier against Gambia on Saturday, Toure is demanding the "small details" of his new contract be ironed out.

Seluk added: "It’s all strange. It’s not normal to have negotiations for six months about a contract. They have been talking about small details all this time.

 "Maybe if the owner speaks to Yaya, maybe he doesn’t know the details."
