Yaya Toure’s agent has officially declared that his client is available for £1 per week as the Ivory Coast star offers his services to a top six side.

This week has seen Pep Guardiola branded as a racist in a sensational interview given by Yaya Toure.

In an incredible interview with France Football, Toure said: “Maybe we Africans are not always treated by some in the same way as others. I do not know why but I have the impression that he was jealous, he took me for a rival.

“He was cruel to me. I came to wonder if it was not because of my colour.”

Dimitri Seluk, Toure’s agent, has sensationally offered his client’s services to any top six Premier League side if they want him. All they need to do is pay his £1 wages, offer an incentivised contract built on bonuses and the chance to play football.

Seluk said: “At a time when big sums are being paid, I officially declare that Yaya is ready to move as a free agent to any English club in the top six with a salary of £1 pound a week. But with a bonus system based on certain successes.


Toure was on £220,000 per week at City and is more than willing to cut a massive cut on his wages to get back to playing football.

Seluk continued: “Now Yaya has many offers from different countries, where they are ready to pay a lot of money, but we decided to dedicate the next season to Guardiola.

“And to prove and show the fans of Manchester City that Yaya is not finished with football. He is full of energy and wants to play this season in England.

“I believe that a player like Yaya would not harm Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool. Yaya – the winner and never before has a top footballer with leadership qualities harmed any club, especially when it is not necessary to pay for it.”

While I don’t think the Ivory Coast midfieler is suited to Liverpool’s play in any way, shape or form, signing him for £1-per-week is tempting.
