Kevin de Bruyne backs Pep Guardiola in Touré racism row

Toure's agent, Dimitri Seluk, has claimed that he is ready to move to a top six club and play for £1-per-week in a desperate attempt to show Manchester City it was wrong to let him go.

Guardiola sold Toure while at Barcelona and then had a major fall-out with the Ivorian midfielder at the start of the 2017/2018 season, after leaving him out of City's Champions League squad.

"We didn't win three Champions Leagues in a row [when I left] so I'm not the one to judge the reasons", Guardiola said. He has set all of Africa against him, many African fans have turned away from Manchester City.

The Russian agent also called Guardiola's appointment in Manchester "nasty" because his predecessor, Manuel Pellegrini, was still in the job at the time.

"He was cruel with me".

Toure made 316 appearances for City, scoring 79 goals and assisting another 50 strikes along the way, and helped the club lift seven trophies during his stint at the Etihad.

Toure served as a key player for most of his eight years at City, but saw his playing time reduced when Guardiola was appointed ahead of the 2016 season.

Unai Emery speaks to Marouane Fellaini about leaving Man Utd for Arsenal
The Belgium global is out of contract at Manchester United this summer and has so far rejected offers of an extension. Arsenal will surely have to improve on Fellaini's contract worth £80,000-a-week, that he has turned down at United.

"So, I don't know what Yaya said or if it's wrongly written or exaggerated. It was as though I made him a little nervous".

UEFA also handed Roma a further one game ban, suspended for two years. Only when you buy all the best players in the world, it's much easier than, for example, in the case of (Claudio) Ranieri, who won the Premier League with Leicester'.

In the time when huge amounts of money are spent on footballers in England, I officially declare that Yaya is ready to move to any of the Premier League top-six clubs as a free agent and play for just £1 per week, with possible bonuses in case of certain achievements.

'I think a player like Yaya would be good for a club like Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd, Tottenham or Liverpool.

"The fact that Guardiola ended Yaya's career in Manchester City is not even a mistake, but a crime".

The Ivory Coast global unleashed a verbal attack on Guardiola on Monday, making a sensational claim that he 'has problems with Africans'.

"And a top player with leadership qualities could never be a bad addition to a team, especially when he doesn't require payment".
