Dimitri Seluk says that his client will start talking with other clubs

Yaya Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk says that his client will start talking with other clubs if he does not receive an offer from Manchester City within one week.

Touré has given this timeframe to receive a new contract. The 32-year-old Ivorian is thought to be concerned about his future prospects at the Etihad stadium. He has only one year left on his contract, but City have not shown any urgency to sign him on for further time. This may be partly down to the managerial change that is going to happen at the club in the summer.

The Scottish football Association are likely to keep manager Gordon Strachan

The Scottish football Association are likely to keep manager Gordon Strachan in charge of the team going into the World Cup 2018 qualifying group.

This is despite Scotland being on the verge of failing to reach the Euro 2016 when rivals like Republic of Ireland and England have done exceedingly well. Strachan was expected to revolutionise the Scottish national team, but it appears that the problem has deep-rooted connections. There is a need to revamp the whole team in order to compete against the best in the world. Scotland will focus on improving the youth football as part of a long-term vision.
