Entries in Yaya Toure (11)
This one comes as a bit of a shock. Yaya Toure is regarded as one of the best central midfielders in world football, and it's easy to see why. The Ivory Coast international can do it all: attack, defend, pass, shoot, the whole package. So it comes as a major surprise to hear that City have been stalling on a new contract for the midfielder, to the point where his agent has had to set a deadline for the club - Saturday.
With several of the young players who used to be synonymous with the transfer window now having secured long talked about moves (for example Eden Hazard and co), we are now ready for the next batch of names so step forward Geoffrey Kondogbia who the Metro are reporting is near the top of the Manchester City's wish list but is also being monitored by Arsenal, Everton and Tottenham.
Roberto Mancini must be delighted that Ivory Coast were surpringsly knocked out of the African Cup of Nations after the Elephants were tipped to be the tournament winners. However none of that will concern the Italian as he has the Toure brothers back ahead of schedule.
Shakhtar Donetsk’s star man is set to be leaving Ukraine in January for a new life in Manchester. Fernandinho has revealed he will be leaving Donetsk to play in Manchester.
Relax Manchester City fans, your season isn't falling apart just yet.
