Yaya Toure wants Premier League switch
Tuesday 01 December 2009
Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure has signalled his desire to leave European champions Barcelona.
The Ivory Coast star was angered at being left out against Real Madrid and his agent has stated a preference of him moving to either Manchester United or Chelsea.
The 26-year-old has struggled to muscle his way into the first-team this season, prompting him to seek football elsewhere.
His agent Dimitri Seluk was quoted as saying: "He is not playing. It is very strange not to be having minutes. If a team like Chelsea or Manchester United would come to us, we are obviously open to talking without any kind of problem.
"I don't know what will happen, but I can say once thing for sure: my player won't be remaining on the bench. This is 100 per cent for sure."
