Transfer Balls: Manchester City Will Sell Yaya Touré And Spend Big To Get Everton’s Ross Barkley

by | 7th, November 2014

ARE Manchester City looking to offload their stella midfielder Yaya Touré? It was only last year Touré was telling everyone that “nothing would give me greater pleasure than to finish my career as a Manchester City player.”

Given his flirting with Barcelona and PSG, do Manchester City fans still believe that?

The Times says City are looking to sell the man:

As they wrestle with a worsening crisis in the wake of their woeful 2-1 defeat by CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday, it has emerged that City would be open to parting company with Touré if a suitable offer is forthcoming.

Isn’t that a line that could be applied to every player?

Arsenal would be open to parting company with Sanchez if a suitable offer is forthcoming.

Manchester United would be open to parting company with Rooney if a suitable offer is forthcoming.

Chelsea would be open to parting company with Hazard if a suitable offer is forthcoming.

Every player has his price.

Touré, who turns 32 in May, will enter the final two years of his £210,000-a-week contract next summer and is likely to be in demand, despite his troubling form this season.

He’ll be in demand because he reamins a force. But what team will want him for that money? Well, Manchester United, obviously. They’re desperate enough to up his wages.

But what next for City?

City are monitoring Paul Pogba and Ross Barkley, the highly regarded Juventus and Everton midfielders respectively, as potential targets and Marco Reus is also under consideration.

The Times has no facta to sugegst any of thoae names will join Ciuty. But, you know the routine:

Juventus would be open to parting company with Pogba if a suitable offer is forthcoming; Everton would be open to parting company with Barkley if a suitable offer is forthcoming; and so on and on…
