Chinese club to steal Man City star with £30m-a-year contract
BY Patrick van Straatenon Feb 03, 2016

 

The Etihad is sure to see some upheaval this summer, as Pep Guardiola clears out the deadwood and brings in players who fit his plans.

 

And one of those departing could be four-time African Footballer of the Year Yaya Touré, who is set to be the subject of a huge bid from Chinese side Jiangsu Suning, according to the Independent.

 

The offer would include a yearly salary of £30m for Touré - a weekly wage of more than £570,000 and the third highest footballer’s salary in the world, after Lionel Messi (£47.8m a year) and Cristiano Ronaldo (£39.7m a year).

 

 

It would be a welcome mark of admiration for Touré, who has often complained of being ignored for the game’s major individual prizes, and has at times even claimed to be unappreciated by City’s management.


But big clubs in Europe could well find a place for Touré, if Guardiola doesn’t want him, so it may come down to a choice between his ambition and his bank balance.

 

Should City let Touré go?
