With doubt surrounding his long-term future at Manchester City, midfielder Yaya Toure and his representatives are set to hold talks with the club in the days ahead, according to Goal.com.
Toure’s advisors have made plans to speak to Man City chief executive Ferran Soriano and director of football Txiki Begiristain, with Toure reportedly open to the possibility of reuniting with Mancini, despite the fact that it would mean a significant reduction to his weekly wage.
On the other hand, he would also be happy to commit his future to the reigning Premier League champions, with a view to possibly taking up an ambassadorial role in the future.
His current salary of £200,000 per week plus bonuses means that he is unlikely to be offered an extension in the near future, with two years still remaining on his contract. Toure has had disputes with the Man City hierarchy before, with doubts over his future last summer in particular, but should he leave, he wants to do so on amicable terms.
Toure has helped Man City to two Premier League titles since arriving from Barcelona in 2010, as well as the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup.
