Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is set to be offered a massive £30 million-a-year contract to move to China this summer.
The announcement of Pep Guardiola as the next City Coach has sparked speculations that Toure’s future at the Etihad Stadium is now very much in doubt and a likely destination is the big spending Chinese League
Already Toure’s agent has helped fuelled speculations around his client having also openly admitted just a few days ago that he doesn’t see the 32-year-old working with the Spanish tactician.
The Ivorian midfielder left the Nou Camp when Guardiola was in charge and, according to the Telegraph, he is set to do the same with a unnamed Chinese club willing to pay huge money to acquire his signature.
Such a deal would mean that he would be paid £576,923 a week, which is quite a substantial improvement on his current weekly salary of £240,000.
The Chinese football scene is growing at an alarming rate, with the likes of Ramires and Jackson Martinez leaving Europe – Chelsea and Atletico Madrid respectively – in order to complete multi-million pound moves.
And it seems someone from the league has now turned their attention to another big-name signing in the form of Toure.
