Yaya Toure off to New York?

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is reportedly considering a move to the Citizens’ sister club New York City FC to replace the retiring Andrea Pirlo, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The Ivorian is in his eighth season at the Manchester club but has been struggling for game time since the arrival of manager Pep Guardiola, who also froze Toure out at Barcelona in similar circumstances. The midfielder has made over 300 appearances for City and scored 82 goals in all competitions, though this season he has only featured three times.

Toure has had a glittering career, winning six league titles in various countries as well as the Champions League during his time at Barcelona. On the international stage the Ivorian added an African Cup of Nations win in 2015 and four African Footballer of the Year titles.

At 34-years of age a move to the MLS could well mark the final chapter of Toure’s impressive career and he looks set to replace Andrea Pirlo in the heart of the New York City FC midfield.
