Yaya Toure offered '£300 000 a week'

25 May 2016, 08:30

Cape Town - Chinese clubs Shanghai SIPG and Jiangsu Suning have reportedly thrown their hats into the ring to sign Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure.

Toure's contract with Manchester City runs until the end of the 2016/17 season, but his agent has confirmed that he will leave the Etihad Stadium following the appointment of Pep Guardiola as manager.

"He'll definitely leave Manchester City, I can calmly confirm that," Dimitri Seluk said, adding that "various offers have arrived for Yaya".

Russian Seluk has previously revealed that he held discussions with Inter, but the names of Shanghai SIPG and Jiangsu Suning have now been added to the list of clubs chasing his signature.

Reports claim the both clubs are ready to offer him £300 000 (R6.9m) per week, which is a big increase from the £240 000 he earns at City.

"Yaya's had his people meeting with both Shanghai and Jiangsu and they have both made firm offers," a source told The Sun.

"Buying himself out of his contract at City would not be a problem because he would recoup it twice over from the signing on fee he would get for coming over here."

Former Manchester City and England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson is currently coaching SIPG while Ghana international Asamoah Gyan is their star player and reportedly earns £227 000 a week.
