Toure offered new contract

Manchester City has confirmed that they will be offering Yaya Toure a new contract.

The player who would have been out of contract during the summer is believed to be keen on the offer.

Despite the fact that there is no concrete deal, it is understood that Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak is interested in offering the Ivory Coast international a new deal to remain at the club.

This is a great achievement in itself for Yaya Toure as he was forced out of the team by Pep Guardiola at the beginning of last season. Indeed the player was not even part of the Champions League squad, and he had to spend a lot of time on the bench. This prompted criticism from his agent who accused Guardiola of forcing his player out of the club.

However, Toure apologized publicly for his agent's comments, and he was then reinstated in the team. He managed to force his way back in the team and get some playing time in the second part of the season. He was indeed instrumental in some games where he managed to help Manchester City control the midfield.

It is for this good performance that he finds himself offered a new contract with the Manchester City team.

Yaya Toure has never hidden his intention to remain at the club and said that this is a great moment of his career. He feels that he can still play at the highest level for some time and said that he is looking forward to winning some trophies with Manchester City.

He said that he is feeling better now and that he wants to help the team whenever he can. He said that next season would be a tough one and it is important that he prepares himself well.
