One of the world's top midfielders might be on the market according to recent reports, with Yaya Toure and his agent quoted as telling Manchester City he will leave in the summer if he does not agree a new contract in the coming days.
In fact, Toure has apparently set a deadline of Saturday for the new deal to be agreed, or else he will request a move out of the club (via Guardian).
Given his reported wages of a quarter of a million pounds sterling each and every week, it would be interesting to know exactly what more he is asking for, with two years still remaining on his present deal. Indeed, it also begs the question who would be willing to stump up both a hefty transfer fee and increase the wages to the level that Toure and his agent clearly feel he deserves?
Here, though, are five such teams who could come up with the financial package to suit City and Yaya—starting with Roman Abramovich and his Chelsea side.
