Man City Toure clinches new deal
Manchester City box-to-box midfielder Yaya Toure is delighted to have agreed a new four-year deal worth of staggering £45 million, which will keep him at the club until at least 2017.
The 29-year-old Ivorian has joined Man City from Barcelona for £24 million in 2010 and established himself as indispensable member of first squad. His passing ability, anticipation, stamina and clinical finishing proved to be an essential part of City’s successes, as the club claimed FA Cup in 2011 and Premier League title in 2012.
It is to be recalled, however, that player’s agent has issued an ultimatum to club’s board last week, stating that player could leave the club, should he be not offered a new improved deal.
Toure expressed his excitement at signing new deal with the club, stating: “This is where I want to be,” said Toure, after signing his new deal. “When I first arrived at City, every time I went to sleep, I would dream about us winning something. Now, it is about us being the best team in whatever competition we take part in.”
“I will never forget how I have been treated here by the fans, the club, and the owners, and nothing would give me greater pleasure than to finish my career as a Manchester City player. I want to continue winning titles and trophies and continue to make history. I have enjoyed all of my time here and can’t wait for the next chapter,” he added.
