Yaya Toure looks Premier League bound
But is unlikely to team up with his big bro…
The Toure family must dream of the day when Yaya and Kolo will stand aloft the Champions League podium, leaping up and down, clapping their hands, whilst a very impressive fireworks display zooms and fizzes in the background. Unfortunately, family Toure, it looks unlikely to ever happen.
Kolo is the skipper over at Man City, and – having seemingly lost a bit of ground at Barca – there are strong hints that Yaya will come over to England, but to one of the current Big Four. Today’s Telegraph reports the possibility of an Arsenal move, where Yaya can provide the important Toure Factor that Wenger used to love so much.
Whilst The Mirror seems more inclined to Man United or Chelsea. On his current situation at Barcelona, his agent, Dimitri Seluk, said this:
“We are not happy with this obviously. He is not playing. If a team like Chelsea or Manchester United would come to us, we are obviously open to talking without any kind of problem.”
With Chelsea supposedly (ahem) out of the running in the transfer market, and Ferguson lacking a balanced and consistent midfield enforcer - plus Kolo living just up the road - might there yet be two brothers competing across the divide?
