Man City transfers: ‘Citizens should cash in on Yaya Toure’
Man City transfers: Paul Parker says the Citizens should sell Yaya Toure if the midfielder is no longer happy at the club
Paul Parker has urged Manchester City to sell Yaya Toure if the midfielder is no longer happy at Etihad Stadium.
The Ivory Coast international’s future has been the subject of intense speculation this summer following his complaints at how he has been treated by the club in recent months.
His actions since the season has finished are the actions of a man who wants to leave
And former Manchester United defender Parker feels that City should look to offload the 31-year-old if he makes it clear he wants to leave the club.
“The big question mark for them though has to be Yaya Toure,” Parker wrote in a column for Eurosport.
“At the end of the day, they don’t need a sour apple in the barrel. City have reached a level where they have to be bigger than any one individual and it is one player who is causing problems. He has to go.”
“His actions since the season has finished are the actions of a man who wants to leave.
“What he is doing now is the same as what he did at Barcelona, it is just the excuses that are different. He always seems to be chasing money so what City need to do is turn around and say to him – ‘fine, you can go.'”
