Yaya Toure: Man City midfielder rejects £430,000-a-week move to China
#1
Toure, 33, was the subject of interest from the Chinese
Super League last summer.
He decided against moving then and gave the same
response when he was contacted again to say the offer
remained open during the current transfer window, which
closes on 31 January.
The Ivorian's contract at the Etihad expires in the
summer.
Toure's future appeared in doubt when he was left out
of the City squad by Pep Guardiola at the start of the
season.
However, he has been a regular for the club since he
was recalled in November and started his seventh
consecutive game in the 4-0 defeat at Everton in the
Premier League on 15 January.
Toure has been free to sign pre-contract agreements with
clubs overseas since 1 January but it is understood he
still enjoys the English game.
Guardiola has not given Toure any guarantees about his
future beyond the summer.
The Ivorian, who joined City in 2010, has become more
important since Germany midfielder Ilkay Gundogan
suffered a cruciate ligament injury against Watford on 14
December that is likely to rule him out for the rest of
the season.
Toure the latest target
Midfielders Oscar and John Mikel Obi left Chelsea to
move to China earlier this month, while former
Manchester United and Manchester City forward Carlos
Tevez reportedly became the world's highest-paid player
when he joined Shanghai Shenhua.
