The Ivorian midfielder’s agent Dimitri Seluk says the 33-year-old will “sign immediately” if he’s presented a decent offer from a rival club
Yaya Toure’s agent Dimitri Seluk has suggested the player is ready to leave Manchester City in the summer and that he would consider a move to Jose Mourinho’s United.

And the player’s representative has gone on to insist that Toure would join a rival if a suitable offer is put on the table, revealing that even United, and a reunion with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, would be an option.
He said, as quoted by Sky Sports: “If we get a good offer from another club we will sign immediately.
“Mourinho is a very good manager and Toure played with Zlatan at Barcelona.
“If Manchester United make an offer I’ll negotiate, no problem.”
When asked if Manchester United had already spoken to Seluk and made an offer for the player, he added: “I can’t speak about individual clubs.”
Toure had earlier insisted that he was happy at City, that he loved the club and was keen to remain at the Etihad Stadium.
When asked if he wanted to stay put he told Sky Sports: “Definitely. I love this football club.

He was left out of his side’s 3-1 Champions League defeat to Monaco that saw them dumped out of the competition although did play 86 minutes of his side’s FA Cup win over Middlesbrough.
