The agent of Yaya Toure says the Manchester City midfielder will start negotiating with other clubs if Toure does not sign a new deal with City by Saturday, according to The Sun.
Toure, 29, joined City from Barcelona in 2010 and is reportedly City's best-paid player. According to the report, negotiations have failed to produce a new contract for six months.
“If he signs a contract in the next three or four days, OK. If not, we will not wait any longer and will start negotiations with different clubs," agent Dimitri Seluk is quoted as saying. “Today is Tuesday, so it means by Saturday. We will say ‘Thank you. OK, Yaya will leave in May.'"
The report also suggests Toure could buy out his own contract in order to leave.
