5 Possible Replacements for Yaya Toure at Manchester City
Created on 11 Mar, 2015 7:00 AM GMT
In recent months, Manchester City and Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure has been involved in several controversies, leading to increased speculation concerning his future with the reigning Premier League champions.
Toure was first rumoured to leave the club in May 2014 after the club allegedly forgot his birthday, causing a breakdown in communication between Toure's representatives and the club.
Before the start of the 2014/15 season, these issues had appeared to be resolved and the Ivorian had signed a new and improved contract. However, speculation about Toure's future arose once more when an interview during the African Cup of Nations led to the 31-year-old admitting that he was unsure about his long-term City future. Former City boss Roberto Mancini expressed an avid interest in Toure and is currently trying to convince him to join his rebuilding process at Italian giants Inter Milan.
Because of the current circumstances, I compiled a shortlist of replacements for City's vice-captain.
