It seems Yaya Toure's attempt at spoiling the high of Manchester City's title win is continuing. Less than a week after securing their second Premier League title win in three years, Toure, aided by his agent and long-time confidant Dimitry Seluk, decided to stir up talk of a transfer away from the club, and not for the first time.

Initially it seemed that a lack of birthday cake was to blame for the Ivorian contemplating a future elsewhere (via BBC Sport), but when footage emerged of a cake being given to him during the club's flight to Abu Dhabi, Seluk changed tack, claiming guarantees of a coaching role were his client's primary concern (via Sky Sports).

Toure has since given interviews claiming he will consider a move, firstly to beIN Sports (via BBC Sport) suggesting Barcelona could tempt him, before reports emerged that Paris Saint-Germain were the more likely destination (via the Guardian).

It's been a bizarre set of events that have somewhat soured the club's celebrations. It has been a glorious first season in charge for Manuel Pellegrini, and many feel Toure's unnecessary gripes have detracted from the achievements.

Here we take a look at 10 other bizarre player-club feuds, including another concerning City and a certain Carlos Tevez.
