The agent of Yaya Toure says his client is is ready to play for another top six club for just £1 a week.
The Ivorian is a free agent this summer after ending his eight year stint at Manchester City.
Toure is a former Arsenal trainee. Arsene Wenger opted against offering the midfielder a contract after having him on trial in 2003.
However, the Gunners have been put on high alert after Toure’s agent Dimitri Seluk says the Ivorian is willing to commit himself to an incentivised contract which will see him cash in if he is able to inspire another top club to success.
This comes days after Toure, 35, criticised Pep Guardiola, insisting the City boss had frozen him out because of his colour and was biased against African players.
“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,” said Seluk (via the Mirror).
“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.”
